Fab Friday Find: J.Crew Ribbon Belt

Years ago, I bought a dress that came with a navy satin ribbon belt. I can't tell you how many times I've pulled out that belt to make a dress more flattering or to liven up a look. When I saw this J.Crew ribbon belt, I knew that it would have the same longevity in my closet.You can grab this pink one online, but there was also a beautiful merlot and a satin chartreuse. The chartreuse is still available here, but the merlot is sold out. This is definitely a party-ready accessory and with J.Crew's frequent promotions, the price makes it a perfect gift for a friend (or yourself).

& Other Stories Lands in Los Angeles

Finally! & Other Stories, one of my favorite brands, has landed in Los Angeles on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles. Conveniently located across the street from COS, & Other Stories is part of the H&M brand group (as well as COS). The style feels more European and the brand is "built around fashion stories." So far there are two stores in California (including the OC) and three in NYC. You can also conveniently shop the brand online. And don't forget to check out their beauty section - they have a large selection that includes makeup, lotions and even candles. Check out some of my favorite pieces below and be sure to stop by the store if you're in the area. The outside of the building is gorgeous.other-stories
