Feature: Buydefinition. This newly launched online store features independent designers like Samantha Pleet, K ritt, and Figs and Ginger. I have to admit that I'm featuring not only the jewelry but my closest friend modeling them. These pieces reflect a delightfulness that does not seem to take away but only add to the simplest outfits. Also, I'm just a sucker for any wooden jewelry, especially when it involves an interesting use of delicate chains. There is something about this combination that is simultaneously severe and appealing.

Feature: F-Troupe. Five years old and ten collections later, F-Troupe is the perfect blend of directional style and vintage tastes. In a world where we are inundated with momentary fashion trends, poorly constructed shoes, and cheaply chosen materials, F-Troupe revives what makes the classic truly appealing. Their subtle new takes on traditional styles make them my favorite shoe design company at the moment. There is just something refreshing about shoes that are simply well done.
