Celine “Natural Hairy Goatskin” Skate Slip-On

The ultimate luxurious slip-on sneaker! French design house Celine has just released this shoe as a benchmark of its Winter 2015 offering.  Made of satin, hairy goatskin, and pony zebra, there’s no doubt that this is as plush as it gets when it comes to designer sneakers.  And it’s one hell of a statement.

Atelier New Regime 2015 Fall/Winter Lookbook

This Montreal-based brand’s lookbook is literally everything: social statements, 90s-inspired styles, oversized tees, and backdrops reminiscent of fall foliage.  Ordering my pieces now…

Wastberg Lamps

I’m always a sucker for modern design elements.  Wastberg Lamps seek to blend the worlds of modern design and function.  The lamps, made of brass, copper, aluminum, beech, and steel, are just as pretty to look at as they are easy to use.

Givenchy NYFW free tickets

I’m sure I found out about this too late-New Yorkers tend to learn about free things literally seconds after they become available.  But fashion house Givenchy is offering 820 free tickets to the general public for its Sept. 11 runway show.  Keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be there.

The Triple Black Collection from nanamica

These leather and canvas bags have been created for every facet of your life in a classic black.  There’s the Day Pack, Cycling Pack, and briefcase.  My personal fave is the Day Pack…I’m feeling a birthday splurge coming on…
