Flashback Friday

This week I’m celebrating Flashback Friday with some of my favorite looks and collaborations from the last year. In life looking back is rarely helpful, but when it comes to fashion, it can be an asset. Rediscovering gems from your closet that you forgot about, getting inspired, finding a new way to wear a piece that you love…

Textures with A by Anubha

When a look really comes together it speaks to the observer. Something about it reaches out to you and appeals to your senses.

With this coat when immediately stuck me was the combination of textures – The rich colors, reach-out-and-touch-them fabrics, and eye-catching details like the contrasting piping all come together to create a beautiful, couture-feeling piece that’s truly unique.

I was excited to add these velvet Max Studio pumps to my textured look. They’re the epitome of a “Statement Shoe” and I look forward to occasions worthy of pulling them out of my closet.

Between the luxurious fabric and intricate silver filigree heel, they’re the perfect sumptuous finishing touch for this Fall look.

MCLV Mange: Infused Water

You know what I love? An easy, easy recipe.

And this “recipe” is so easy it nearly doesn’t qualify as a recipe at all.

Infused water is simple and beautiful – The perfect addition to your table the next time you have guests over. Using either flat or sparkling water you can add whatever lovely ingredients you’re in the mood for – From mint to berries to citrus peels.

Ingredients:

  • Water – Flat or sparkling
  • Spices
  • Produce
  • Herbs

Depending on what you’re in the mood for you could try any number of refreshing combinations – From tangy lemon and mint to ready-for-Fall cinnamon sticks and orange peels to detoxifying raspberries and ginger.

Just add your chosen combination to your water and serve or refrigerate for later. Et voila – Fancy water!

Stay tuned for the next MCLV Mange installment and check out the previous posts from this series to see what you’ve missed so far:
