While Journelle is among my favorite little jewel box shops in the city, sometimes an intimate shopping occasion calls for something a little more...well...intimate. Enter Journelle Atelier, a chic and comfortable reprieve now tucked quietly, unassumingly in a Flatiron office building (also home to Journelle's corp offices). By appointment only, the Atelier offers more advanced personal shopping services, custom fittings (how perfect for a bridal trousseau, yes?) and a perfectly curated collection of luxurious underpinnings and chic sleep accessories from some of my favorite brands, including Chantelle andStella McCartney.
Relax with tea or, better yet, champagne while you shop and feel free to let it loosen your inhibitions - you won't regret anything you indulge in here.
Journelle Atelier is located at 159 West 25th St, 4th Fl. For an appointment, call 212.255.7802 or email email@example.com
This past weekend, I paid a VERY hospitable visit to one of my favorite (almost?) Southern cities - Nashville! There, I stopped by the Kohl'sBeauty Trade In event, which invited local shoppers to swap two of their used and unloved beauty products for one very snazzy and very tempting $10 gift card valid in store.
The new Beauty Departments at Kohl's boast a staff of well-versed Beauty Advisors (who took every beauty request to heart!) as well as a bounty of prestige brands that are otherwise impossible to find in many cities across the US. Included in the mix are LORAC, Cargo Cosmetics (a couple of my holiday picks from those brands can be seen in the Insta snap above!), Borghese and my new fave, Be Delectable, a sweetly-scented collection of bath and body delights, shoppable here.
The event served as a fun introduction to Kohl's brand-spankin'new Beauty Departments in over 250 stores nationwide. Find your local Kohl's via the store locator on site!
While all opinions expressed are my own, this post was produced in partnership with She Knows Experts Among Us and Kohl's.
It's officially Sample Sale season, which means I'll be clutching my wallet close in the hopes of not over-spending. Non-New Yorkers, you're welcome at this one too- Loeffler Randall will be launching their first everOnline Sample Sale, starting December 2nd. Follow the brand on twitter and facebook to be the first to hear about additions to the sale -orders over $250 will even receive an exclusive gift with purchase!
It would be a rare holiday season if I didn't fall truly, madly and deeply in love with Gap's ad campaign - they always evoke real emotion and get me in the spirit. This year's - launching today - is no exception; dubbed “Make Love,” it focuses on a group of artists and activists - think Tony Bennett, Cyndi Lauper and Billy Porter, Harry Belafonte and Q-Tip - who are "giving and spreading love, hope and joy this holiday season".
My favorite in the mix is hot babe/Nashville star Connie Britton, shown with her adorable son Yoby in the snap above. Can you even? (I don't think I can!)
Of course, 'tis also the season to spend, friends, and to help shoppers find the perfect gifts for friends and family, Gap has partnered with VSCO (a popular photo editing app) and some of their most influential photogs to curate 26 days of gift ideas. Discover and shop along at gap.vsco.co.
