Bermuda Cheat Sheet

6 Mar

If you’re looking for a last minute Spring Break getaway,  I suggest you head to Bermuda. If you’re not convinced after this cheat sheet, Google pictures and ask friends about their experiences. I’ve never heard anyway say that they had a miserable time in Bermuda.

Bermuda is technically considered part of The Caribbean but the truth is, it’s only a 2 hour flight from New York City. Of course, once you arrive, you will be convinced you’re in heaven. Bermuda is flawless, civilized and the gorgeous pink sand is legendary all around the world. This time of year, it’s a little cool to swim (think mid-60’s-low 70’s) but you’ll find yourself doing so anyway, especially if you stay at The Fairmont Southhampton Resort, which boasts an amazing indoor pool within their award-winning spa.

How To Get There: American Airlines and Delta fly almost daily to Hamilton, Bermuda (L.F. Wade International Airport). From New York, expect to pay between $350-$450 per person roundtrip in the month of March. Most premiere hotels require a cab ride from the airport, which is usually around $20 (everyone in Bermuda takes U.S. currency). The drivers are very friendly and are full of knowledge, since they have lived there all of there lives. Bring cash. Taxis do not take credit cards here.

Where To Stay: I love the Southhampton Resort because you really don’t have to leave for the duration of the trip. They facilitate scuba diving, have amazing golf courses and their restaurant Jasmine Lounge has an jazzy 30’s vibe that you won’t find anywhere else. You have to try their fish chowder. There are other restaurants that people rave about such as Mickey’s  at Elbow Beach and Hog Penny. Little Venice  in Hamilton has amazing Italian food. This restaurant is quite entertaining (the staff is crazy and they pull pranks on eachother….you have to see it to believe it). To venture out to Hamilton, Bermuda’s “city”, you have to take a ferry, cab or bus. Please note: I do not recommend the bus at night time.

What To Bring: A Wildfox Swim Towel and a Missoni Crochet Knit Bikini. The vibe here is disconnected but bring your most beautiful resort pieces such as luxe towels, exotic caftans and K. Jacques sandals to flaunt your personal style. A great book to reference before you go is Resort Fashion: Style in Sun-Drenched Climates.

The Top 5 Shoes to Invest in for Spring/Summer

2 Mar

There are many things in life you can skimp money on; mascara, t-shirts, even jeans. But one of my fashion rules that I stick by 98% of the time is to splurge on shoes.

Think about it: cheap shoes make your feet hurt which in turn make you cranky, give you blisters and can make your overall outfit look cheap. And who wants that? Here are my ultimate favorite shoes for spring/summer and why they will take you beyond the seasons:

1) Chloe Raffia Ballet Flats

Although I love a classic ballerina flat, this is an amazing twist on the wardrobe staple. First of all they are raffia, which basically coaxes you to book a flight to a warm destination (I’m thinking Italy when I look at these but let your imagination do the talking). But most importantly they are pink, tan and cream which resembles, you guessed it….Neapolitan ice cream! Anything that looks like ice cream is worth investing in. Now they are $600 dollars but if you wear them on every single vacation, they pay for themselves.

2) Missoni Flat Espadrilles

Nothing says “jetsetter” like Missoni. And of course, espadrilles are a summer wardrobe necessity. If you always wanted a piece from Missoni but your budget never allowed it, you might want to consider these. The craftmanship is incredible.

3) Yves Saint Laurent Leather and Stingray Sandals

I know these are super-expensive but I couldn’t resist including them. They are just so gorgeous. I absolutely love stingray. Not only is it unpredictable but it adds texture. Ans don’t even get me started on the crispness of white. Overall, my fantasy shoe for this summer.

Yves Saint Laurent Leather and Stingray Sandals, $995, Netaporter.com

4) Sam Edelman Gigi T-Strap Sandal

My favorite shoe for summer is a simple metallic t-strap. Metallic, whether gold, silver, rosegold or bronze will go with everything from shorts to a summer dress. I love these because they are only $65 and look just as pretty as K.Jacques.

5) Minnetonka Moccasins

How can you not love these?

The 2011 RGRS Gift Guide: Part 2

10 Dec

Last week we put the spotlight on The Label Whore. This week it’s all about The Colorful Chameleon. This person is far from glum and wears color like nobody else (electric blue with pastel pink? Why not!) This individual is also a fan of the arts and perhaps is an artist themselves. If they wear black, it must be paired with a colored jean or a bright accessory. They are a kid at heart and their energy is off the wall!

Right on Target

24 Aug

Here, my top selections from the massive 400-piece Missoni collection for Target:

 

I love blankets! This will be perfect for cool fall nights.

Makes me miss going back-to-school school supply shopping.

I need a new pair of rainboots and these seem like a safe bet.

I really want the pencils! And I always carry notebooks so this is my paradise.

Margherita Missoni wore the top in the Vogue August editorial feature. I really love the print.
