Here are a few of my favorite fashionable things

I am a serious magazine addict, consume fashion blogs like Baked Cheetos and am a slave to Womens Wear Daily. While I read, skim and browse, I keep a mental list of the coolest and latest, whether it be a designer, a destination or a hot trend. Below is a roundup:

Michon Schur
Los Angeles designer Stephanie Schur has quietly been invading the fashion scene and her designs are suddenly popping up everywhere: on NYC socialites, the red carpet, and the pages of InStyle magazine. There’s something irresistible about the Michon Schur collection — let’s call it spontaneous glamour. Pictured here: a gold metallic dress from the Spring Collection and a play on the tuxedo from the Fall Collection.

Reykjavik, Iceland
I love it when people ask “if you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?â€? Take a minute. Think about it. Make sure you have an answer. If I could go anywhere in the world, I would travel to Cuba or Iceland. Though neither are the most feasible destinations, the latter is at least legal. So I would hop on the next Iceland Air flight to Reykjavik, the country’s capitol. Reykjavik is a cosmopolitan city that is on the cutting edge of music, art and of course, fashion.

Sail bags
A little random, but really cool: Seabags and Tanker bags, both made of recyclable sails. offers designs such as stars, stripes or numerals offered in a variety of sizes and carry messenger bags with an interior tag that details the type of boat, sail and body of water in which the sail was used. These bags are durable, eco-friendly and serve as the perfect beach tote!

The sweater dress
3.1 Phillip Lim’s knit sweater with slip dress is effortless, cozy and completely chic. The great thing about a sweater dress is its versatility — wear it like the models on the runway, cinch it with a belt or pair it with skinny jeans and leggings if you dare. And keep them around — sweaters will be the IT item for fall.

Yellow shoes
I recently bought a pair of Brazilian brand Dumond’s cut-out leather pumps from Akira on State Street. This was after ogling them in the store window on my way to lunch for two weeks. The funny thing is: they are yellow. After a trip through last month’s magazines, I see this color choice wasn’t as strange as I first thought.
