Summer Style Post Featuring Shoes of Prey / Sorial

Top: WkShp
Skirt: USE UNUSED San Skirt, $415
Necklace: Gorjana
Sunglasses: Roberto Cavalli
Shoes: Shoes of Prey, $199
Bag: Sorial Park Avenue Tote, $148

I was so excited to wear my colorblocked heeled oxfords. I designed at Shoes of Prey! I wanted to design something unique that I didn't have in my shoedrobe, and incorporate one of my favorite summer colors - mint green. I also added in metallic gold to glam up the shoe and a blush/nude tone to make it more wearable. I think these shoes would also look great with a mint or blush-toned tulle skirt, or jeans and a tee. The shoes are pretty comfortable, with a 3.4" heel. My heeled oxfords came with a shoe bag, shoe inserts and a pic of my shoe! Check out my whole Shoes of Prey design experience here. You can design your own pair of shoes at shoesofprey.com or visit the Design Studio at select Nordstrom locations.

My vegan leather Sorial Park Avenue Tote has become my go-to bag, from the office to events, fitting everything from my DSLR camera to my cosmetics bag and change of shoes. It paired nicely with my new Shoes of Prey shoes!

TonyMoly NYC Flagship Store Opening


On June 26th, Tonymoly celebrated their 1st year anniversary with a new flagship store opening in the heart of Korea Town at 35 W 32nd Street in NYC. This location was previously shared between Koryo bookstore and The Face Shop. Currently you'll find bookstore items on the other side of the store and Shine 32 (Kpop accessories and jewelry) on the second floor. 

There's a brow lounge as soon as you walk in, plus tons of promotion items. Towards the back of the store, you'll find a wall of Tonymoly's top 8 products, tons of mask sheets, including red wine, avocado, aloe and seaweed, and makeup and hair stations. 

As I walked around there were so many items in fun, cute packaging that immediately got my attention, like the Fruit Princess Gloss, Kiss Kiss Lovely Lip Patch, Apple Hand Cream, Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist, Gold Black Sugar Mask and Latte Art Strawberry and Cappuccino Cream-In Scrubs. 

The store may be narrow for a flagship, but jam-packed with makeup and skin care galore, Tonymoly style. I'll definitely be back to shop some of the necklaces ($18-$28 range) upstairs, which are perfect for layering and also make great gifts.

Ciaté London Colour Cosmetics Collection at Sephora


I was so excited when I got to preview the Ciaté London Colour Cosmetics Collection, which launched exclusively at Sephora this past spring. I've always been a fan of the brand's nail products, and it was great to see the brand extend its range into cosmetics, with the motto LOVE.PLAY.COLOUR.

The colour collection is split into three categories: Hero pieces which fit into any make-up bag, Core collection items available on an extended variety of shades, and Trend collections, which highlight the fresh-off-the-runway trends and innovative textures. 

I love the Trend Report featured on all of the packaging, which tells you tips on how to utilize each product. The packaging also has a snapshot of how the color looks on the lips or eyes. 

Check out highlights from each product below. 

Lip & Mix
Glitz Grip Lip Adhesive / Lip Pigment Glitter, Shimmer, or Velvet
Holographic glitters, pearlescent powders and velvety textures.
Apply a thin layer of the Glitz Grip sealer onto lips, then dab the pigment applicator into the Glitz Grip sealer, then into the pigment to pick up the particles and press directly on lips.

Patent Pout 
Colour-Rich Lip Lacquer - $18
8 shades from brights to nudes
Combines the ease of a gloss with the look of a lipstick. Formulated with moisture infusing tripeptide. Has a lightweight feel and is intensely smoothing. 

Here's a look at the Patent Pout in Abracadabra that I tried on during the preview. This has to be my favorite Ciate product and bold color! I always make sure I have on a lip gloss or lipstick and I love that Patent Pout combines the two in one product! The super shine is amazing!
