My Latest Snag: The All White Supergas.
Like everyone else on the globe, I died over the Royal Family’s portrait from Louis’ christening — absolute perfection! — and tumbled down a Princess Kate rabbit hole. I was inspired by the classic but chic look she achieved with a simple pair of white Supergas. And then I discovered that by joining Zappos’ new rewards program, I would receive a $25 gift card via email and…DONE. A new pair of ($40!) Supergas were en route to me

#Turbothot: Let’s Have a Kiki.
A girlfriend of mine recently introduced me to the phrase “let’s have a kiki.” Even before she fully elaborated on its origin and meaning, I had read between the lines: she wanted to vent/gossip/chit-chat in only the way good girlfriends can, preferably around a bottle of wine and assortment of snacks, usually punctuated by laughter of increasing volume and frequency, and always without inhibition or judgment. How many times have you called up a girlfriend or sister and started in with: “Oh.my.God.” and then proceeded to unravel and overanalyze a crazy story, often ending up in tears of laughter rather than anger? Or spun into a gathering of close friends in a fit of frustration or excitement or giddiness that only understanding, we-got-your-back, ride-or-die girlfriends can match and somehow amplify until suddenly you realize you are in the midst of a shrieking mass of femininity and it is kind of the best thing ever?
That’s having a kiki.
And my God, what sweet, joyous catharsis! The next time you are getting together with your girlfriends or dialing a sister in a fit of rage, be sure to wink inwardly at the glee of having a kiki.
#Shopaholic: The Fall Find.
+In love with this one-piece!
+This classy, Chanel-esque cardigan/jacket is on sale in select colors.
+I saw a 90 year old woman at my nail salon wearing this cheeky bag and could not believe how adorable she looked wearing it! Also, I want it.
+This striped dress would be an instant wardrobe staple. (And it’s under $40!)
+Finally tackling our unwieldy spice collection — ordering a couple sets of these and these to contain everything. Side note: these are a brilliant idea for maximizing a small storage space! More of my favorite small apartment gear here.
+Speaking of storage, how darling are these?!
+This headboard is absolutely perfect for a guest room.
+The skincare regimen that changed my skin. (And I say this seriously because I just got back from my annual dermatology screen and she said my skin looks great!)
+Such a cute memento for a family gathering or…your next extended kiki.
