Dear, The Office of Angela Scott.

Thank you for creating your goodyear welted luxury footwear brand. I have my good friend, Allyson, to thank. Your deep admiration for the authenticity and quality of traditional craftsmanship, blended with your appreciation of the punk mentality and aesthetic, makes you truly unique in your shoe endeavor. The quality of your creations don’t stop with hand-carved lasts and fine leathers. All finishes, including brogue-ornamentation and serrated details, are meticulously fashioned by hand.

I must tell you, I am head over heels for your White Magic Miss Jackson bootie. She's edgy. Delicious. And she's definitely confident. I must have her.

Thank you for designing her.

Sincerely,

Catherine

Simplicity can be a good thing.

That's why I am drawn to this Isabel Marant gold-tone wrap necklace. While I am not sure it's me, exactly, I do like the fact that it can be throw on with ease. A subtle statement maker.

Embellished with white resin beads and dégradé feathers, this necklace can go to the office, out to lunch and to the beach for a weekend.

It matters not where your day will take you — as long as you take this with you.

That is what I long for at the end of the day. Something soft against my skin.

I am loving this relaxed SUNDRY jersey jumpsuit. And while I'd want to live in it around the house daily, I would venture outside in it.

The nice thing about jumpsuits, they can be worn most of the year, making them super versatile. And did mention comfortable?

goldrescuecreamTight, dry winter skin. Never again.

My very favorite super intense moisturizing cream, Gold Rescue Cream from Omorovicza, is head and shoulders above the rest during these bitter cold months. I find myself longing for this both morning and night. It's so rich, you only need a tiny bit. I rub it between my fingers and pat it onto moist skin. It's emollient and has a tendency to rescue and heal my skin from whatever conditions and climates I've encountered.

Powered by a potent thermal-water-in-oil barrier formulation that transforms the skin, Gold Rescue Cream revitalizes and rejuvenates even the driest of complexions. Colloidal gold repairs and strengthens, while a combination of peptides reduces the depth and appearance of wrinkles and plumps the skin. 

I'm no stranger to Omorovicza. It's one of my all-time favorite skin care lines. And for me, this nourishing cream leaps to the top.

It's paradise for the skin!

Here they are. The beauties I mentioned last week that already sold out.

Well, that's almost true. The color and style (wedge) that I wanted sold out. I'm fairly certain I can still grab my second choice pair of these fabulous Chloé gladiator sandals. Case in point: order your spring cravings early.

I know it's hard to believe that in February you'd ever find yourself in a pickle over spring items. However, there's a reason why some items are more difficult to get your hands on. Shoes, for one, will always be a hot topic. I recommend pre-ordering the shoes that you cannot live without 3-4 months before the season hits. With resort season in full swing, those coveted spring sandals have been snatched up.

Outerwear is another one of those items that leaves the stores quickly. Especially in spring! Lightweight jackets and trench coats are difficult to find once the weather breaks and you can actually ditch your parka. Pre-order.

Once you have a shopping strategy in place for the year, it becomes second nature. And you can plan your budget accordingly. Just ask my clients.
