Wildfox Couture has been a brand that I’ve had a my eye for a quite a few years. It’s whimsical and Californian point of view is pure fun. I mean, how can you resist a t-shirt that says “Born in Bel Air”?

With past collaborations with brands such as Jeffrey Campbell and Vans, I was excited to see another match made in heaven with L.A. based  designer Michelle Siwy. This (gorgeous) designer has a celebrity cult following that includes Kate Moss, Kate Hudson and Rachel Bilson. The duo partnered up on a Fall 2013 collection that will include sexy pieces such as leather leggings and skirts, pastel skinny jeans and my favorite, the rugged and “faded in all the right places” cocoa brown jeans, all pictured below.

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.
