THE CUYANA MINI CIRCLE BELT BAG

The new Cuyana Mini Circle belt bag is selling out so fast…so it’s time to go grab one here! It also comes in black, meaning you can match it with just about any look this coming season. Cuyana is my go-to brand for everyday leather essentials. They’re incredibly well-made and minimal, exactly what I like to keep on me at all times. This belt bag is best complete with a suit and vintage car of course. Wear it slung low on your hips with a dress, or like here, right on your waistline over a jacket or with your favorite high waisted bottoms. I was just leaving Palm Springs for LA when I stumbled up on this absolutely adorable vintage car shop sitting on a sunny corner off the main road. An old tan Mercedes Benz along with my tan suit seemed like a little match made in desert heaven. I kept things neutral, once again becoming a chameleon and matching my sandy surroundings. I have survived my 8th Coachella in a row and was ready to make my way out of the party scene and drive back to reality at my family’s home in Los Angeles. We stumbled upon this little part of town dedicated to antiquing. There’s an ease and slow pace in Palm Springs that we tend to forget about surrounding festival season. As the crowds of party-pooped festival-goers make their way to in-n-out burger and past the sandy windmills, Palm Springs remains just as calm and quiet as it’s always been. I savored these last few moments of the desert sun in a town that takes the old, and makes it still feel new again. See you next year Coachella.

SACAI IN PARIS

Attending the Sacai show at Paris Fashion Week was a serious treat. This dress is just as dark and mysterious as my then, extra dark brown locks. The show was in a huge garage in Paris. Think runway models sashaying up and down between floors 4 and 6 in incredible long gray layers with added pops of blue and purple. The amazing thing with Sacai is the play of textures and the super small details. Take a closer look and you’ll notice this stunning belt, a sexy sheer skirt panel, and little lace neckline. A bit of Parisian goth against the romantic city streets. Right now, I’m currently in LA in the midst of festival season. I have since swapped out my luxurious fashion week dresses with denim overalls and tee-shirts to beat the California desert heat. Paris will always take me into this alternate universe, where I can play different characters in support of my favorite designers. I sure miss Paris, but I’m so excited to go back as the weather warms up so I can roam free sans jacket.

JOIE SUNDAY GIRL: NATALIE + DYLANA

The Suarez Sisters love our Sundays. Sundays are meant to feel easy. We like to stay around our Dumbo, Brooklyn pads and soak in all that our neighborhood has to offer. As for what I wear on the weekends? Anything that moves freely and feels soft to touch on my skin. I’m so excited to share our Joie Sunday Girl story and interview, featuring both Dylana and I. This was shot on a very rainy, gloomy day here in the city in and around our homes. We got to chat with the team on how we got our start, how we work together yet seem to differentiate ourselves (especially with what we wear), and what our perfect Sunday in the city looks like. The amazing thing about this feature is getting to reflect on our growth as both individuals and a sister duo. We took the latest Joie spring collection and layered it up, styling it in our very own eclectic way. I have worn Joie for as long as I can remember and I love how the designs have evolved and grown with me…always classic, sophisticated, French chic with everything: joie de vivre.

THE BUBBLE DRESS IN PARIS

This is not a normal shape I wear…the bubble, but it’s pretty fun to switch things up, and especially during Paris Fashion Week. Here I am snapped outside the Marimekko show. The presentation was beautiful, with loads of pink and reds with women of all ages taking the stage. It was refreshing. This little Marimekko bubble polka-dot number went best with a pair super thigh-high Tamara Mellon boots and my favorite Proenza bag. Totally rain proof. The weather was intense, making it one of those days to throw my hair up in a bun, skip the makeup, and add on giant pair of goggles…aka, my fun Karen Walker sunglasses. Paris was amazing this fashion month. There were so many incredible shows, presentations, and previews. Team Suarez had the most productive week of non-stop action! There was so much to do in so little time! Our home base was at the super chic Hoxton hotel. I have never run into so many people I’ve worked with before in one place. It was like a zoo…it felt like everyone was either out in the cafe taking meetings or simply chilling out with a glass of wine in between shows. It’s a pretty amazing space to just sit and people watch. Everyone looked wonderful, all jazzed up in their best for the shows. In Paris, I always feel I step up my game when it comes to getting dressed in the morning. I like to wear something a little out of the ordinary. The city just makes you want to create beauty of everything that’s around you. I always come home after a Paris trip feeling inspired to soak up the simple luxuries of the everyday because in Paris, that’s what life is about. The luxury of your morning coffee. The luxury of simply walking around the city. I can get used to the luxury of everything made in France.
