Daily Covet: Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers

There’s nothing bigger in footwear than slip-ons at the moment.

That’s why these Sam Edelman Becker Sneakers are on my must-have list.  Well, that’s not the only reason. Carrying bags, baby, keys and more out the door is tough to do – which only leaves one hand to put your shoes on… if that!

Sam Edelman’s go-with-anything sneakers would be perfect since I can’t wear flip-flops all fall and winter too. I’m wild about these sneakers and would love to try them on with denim skimmers, sweatshirt dresses and even shorts!

Where can’t these Beckers in such a cute animal print go?

Daily Covet: Chevron Wallet & No. 7 Lip Stain

This weekend, I made a public appearance at Junkstock, a cool event in Omaha that happens twice a year.  It’s where vendors bring all their cool “junk” that’s been repurposed or is waiting to be repurposed for whoever decides it’s a must have.

I had to stop in at Target to pick up an umbrella as I misplaced mine.  As I perused the accessories section, this little turquoise chevron wallet (in store) popped out at me. I actually own a black and white printed version of this wallet already and love it. It’s the perfect size for my smaller evening-time bags, I can take it out of my handbag and carry it on it’s own and it snaps shut tightly to keep all my cards, cash and identification in place. The best part is that it’s literally $12.99 – no one is more surprised than this bag snob!

Another favorite from Target is my No. 7 Sheer Temptation lip stain in “Entice.” I’m not much of a lipstick person on a day-to-day basis.  I much prefer a little stain that will keep my lips pink even after the glossiness wears off.  And it’s minimal gloss at that, so it’s really perfect to keep my pout moist even when I’m just working out or heading to the pool.

Daily Covet: Pure City’s domino Bike

This adorable Pure City bike was specially designed in five cute colors – white is my fave! –  for domino magazine (my other fave!)

It’s not that I’m dying to get a bike all the time, but it is something I think would be so great to do with my kids.

Two of my sons are of bike-riding age and I’m all about a baby seat for my littlest peanut. What fun it would be to go on bike rides to the park. Or to the store to pick up a few things without having to fire up the engine on my gas-guzzling SUV. Oh yeah, and then there is that old exercise thing.

Why not this fabulous cruiser that’s so much a cuter version of the beach cruiser I had in high school? All I’d need is a big, floppy sun hut!

Daily Covet: Art & The Marlboro Man

When I was young and full of beans, I always said I wanted to marry the Marlboro Man someday.

I’m probably dating myself here, but back then there were still commercials and ads for the hunky rancher-type perched atop a horse or roping a stray calf.

While I am very much a city girl, there is a certain charm to a guy who has to wear leather gloves and sturdy boots to do his job. I guess that might include large, bald hit men too, but I digress….

Funny enough, I am actually happily married to a brainy, well-read sales guy with wicked networking skills and an impressive catalog of digital music.

So why not just hang this enlarged thumbnail print of an old Marlboro ad by George Allen to remind me of my younger days? The colors are gorgeous, the subject reminiscent and the pricetag  is right.

Better than getting my designer pumps dusty, if you ask me!

A Classic Converse Collaboration

alkgrace:

I love the thought of my own unique sneakers in a surprise color! Check out Maison Martin Margiela’s collaboration with Converse.

Originally posted on what we LIKE NYC:

Converse_Maison_Martin_Margiela_All_Star_Chuck_70_Jack_Purcell_29817 French fashion house Maison Martin Margiela’s second collaboration with all American sneaker brand Converse hit stores in New York this week.  The classic white leather Jack Purcell comes in both low and high top and resembles an old-school pair of sneakers but with a twist. These have been given a lick of thick white paint. With wear and tear the paint will slowly peel and crack, revealing a hidden bold color beneath.  The paint on each pair of shoes will crack in its own way, giving you your very own unique pair of kicks, beaten up and cool for summer.

Tranparency is Essential

Handbags you can see through aren’t new to the handbag scene by any means.  But the vintage ones and the brand new models alike get better and better all the time.

While this amazing Louis Vuitton shopper is one of my faves (who can resist tortoise chain link handles?), these other amazing bags are absolutely drool-worthy too!
