There have been so many fun thngs on my radar lately that I’ve been wanting to share with you. To start, have you guys heard about the new series on Lifetime, UnReal? I have to say I was a little dubious when I first heard about it, but reviews have been so good, I set my DVR and checked it out. It was surprisingly dark and fun! Both Joe and I agreed — a series we will for sure follow this summer.
Second, I recently bought another pair of these huaraches, after the ones given to me in the summer of 2013 were finally looking a little worn. These are without doubt my favorite shoes to wear in warmer temps — once you break them in, they are unbelievably comfortable! You can buy them directly from the Ix site, and Shopbop sells a few colors too.
Third, fellow blog buddy Louisa recently launched a print shop of her beautiful photographs, on the heels of a fast-growing Instagram account. The California girl in me loves this one and this one; I think they’re awesome in black and white, but the color versions are lovely too. Any favorites?
I went on a book buying spree this week and downloaded a bunch of new reads; first up is this book, which everyone is talking/writing about. I used to live a couple blocks from the church/AA meeting all the reviews are mentioning (it really is near a Ralph Lauren and a Prada; they also left out the Tom Ford and Pucci stores nearby too). Any other good books I should add to my summer reading list?
Finally, M. Gemi. I’ve been meaning to share this company for a while — mostly how sad I am that I missed these loafers, which are exactly what I’ve been looking for (I LOVE the blue and orange colors). You should check these guys out, especially if you were in the camp of J.Crew’s shoes not being what they once were. Everything is made in Italy, in limited editions. Prices can be on the higher side, but I’ve heard good things about the quality and love their commitment to working with family owned factories who make everything by hand (you can see a video of the Felize loafers being made by scrolling down a little here).
Any fun finds on your radar lately?
MAY-JAH POST UPDATE! I took a chance and decided to waitlist myself for the orange Felize loafers on the M. Gemi site. Literally an hour and a half later, I got an email saying that a pair was available. Score! So as an FYI, if you see some shoes you love that are waitlisted on the M. Gemi site, it’s worth it to sign up for the waitlist. I wonder if/suspect since everything is handmade, the company may not have the distribution in place to make certain sizes readily available, but if they get a request for a certain pair in a certain color/size and there are a few in stock, they’ll notify you via the waitlist. Either way, I can’t wait to get my loafers!
