Odds & Ends

On My Radar: Summer 2017 Edition

on my radar header 1

While these last few weeks have flown by, I’ve felt a little discombobulated to be honest.

Settling into new routines has always proven to be a challenge for this type-A lady, who thrives on a regimented schedule. While I’ve been slowly making the shift to a less-structured “Summer-time Stella,” I’ve also been making mental notes (and i-phone notes — thank goodness for that app!) about products, brands and styles that have been catching my eye. On their own, they might not be meaty enough for a dedicated post, but when combined you can easily see why they’re worthy of discussion.

This most recent edition of “On My Radar” is all about summer time fun!

Vince Satin Slip Dress // Frame Oversized Denim Jacket // Alexandre Birman Ballet Slides

I love a simple, slinky slip dress and the metallic copper hue on this one is especially good! While it’s a no brainer for a night out, try this style with FLATS (these are marked down 60%!) and an OVERSIZED DENIM JACKET (THIS is a much more affordable version!) for a daytime appropriate outfit.

Completely Bare Wax Kit (I also HIGHLY recommend the numbing mist appropriately called, NOT FEELING IT!)

After years of visiting the brick and mortar Completely Bare studio in New York (now rebranded as SPRUCE + BOND), I was devastated when my Cleveland move totally threw my long-standing waxing schedule for a loop! When I came across these at-home hair removal versions of the professional products, I was desperate and willing to give pretty much anything a shot. Lucky for me, this WAX KIT is effective, easy and affordable! I’ve been at at-home convert ever since. The new NUMBING MIST is a nice addition to my routine. While it doesn’t completely eliminate all sensation, it does take a bit of the sting out of the waxing equation.

Rimowa North America Hard Sided Luggage

For years, I’ve been a die hard devotee to my TUMI LUGGAGE. It was only in the last few months that I’ve been getting increasingly frustrated with the baggage claim situation and having a hard time recognizing my bag among all of the other almost identical pieces of luggage. I think it’s time for a change. While the rose gold may not pass muster with my husband, I think I can totally get him on board with a hard-sided set as durable and well-designed as this German-made, RIMOWA CARRY-ON BAG.

Soludos Knotted Leather Slides

Slides are having their style moment this summer! This SOLUDOS KNOTTED PAIR is just special enough that I’d be happy to give them some play time away from the pool or beach. The leather is buttery soft and the knotted style is right on trend — a winning combination is my book!
