Labels to Love: Cuyana

The company founders created Cuyana on the philosophy of owning fewer, better things. 

More on that outlook in weeks to come!   

Cuyana focuses on clean-lined, quality designs for women and has instituted a philanthropic “lean shipping” option at checkout.  With this option, Cuyana will send customers a reusable bag to fill with unwanted clothing items. When you mail the bag back (with included shipping label), the donated clothing is given directly to women in need. Additionally, for every donation you make, you receive a $10 credit towards your next purchase! 

A few favorite Cuyana pieces are highlighted below:

The Mini Saddle Bag ($195 in black leather; clay or rose in suede/leather mix) is on-trend this season and the perfect addition for spring as street fairs, festivals and farmer’s markets swing in to action.  Keep your essentials nearby and your load to a minimum! A standard size Saddle Bag is available for $295 in four colors.

cuyanaTimeless, lady-like, elegant…that is the Silk Sleeveless Shirtdress ($245 in black or white; long-sleeve version available for $250 in four colors).

For travel or at-home, the Classic Alpaca Cape ($195 in black, grey, camel) makes a great layering piece.  Love the belted look as a chic coverlet for a slip dress on a cool evening or, for a more boho feel, layered with a tee and paired with crops or skinnies.

Shoes-Day Tuesday!

This week Natty Gal is crushing on the Viola Kitten Heel from M. Gemi ($248)!  Also available in black and sand, the rose color shown here is perfect for spring and right on palette with Pantone’s Spring 2016 pick, Rose Quartz!

Easter Egg-stravaganza

Hippity-hop-hop, hippity-hop-hop Easter’s on it’s way!  
 
This silk dress by Joie hits just the right casual yet springy mark for Easter get-together’s. In the first look, the dress is styled for lunch at the club or an Easter buffet.  The neutral sandal keeps the lines simple and airy.  While the Weitzman Nudist sandal has become de rigueur on the red carpet, I prefer the more walk-able heel height of the 65mm Naked. Pick the shade that most closely matches your skin tone and this will be the only summer dress sandal you will ever need!
Dress Detail

The second look shows the dress as you might wear it for more casual entertaining at home.  Whether loosely belted or worn as a sheath, the dress paired with a midnight or white legging, low-heeled bootie, infinity scarf and leather clutch the look is still chic but more practical for running after kids at an egg hunt.


 

The lightweight silk fabric makes this piece great for travel!  Visualize it paired with a thin leather thong and straw tote (or one of the clutches above) for a resort dinner.
