It Item

My Favorite Item from 2018

This Anine Bing black satin skirt gets five stars and was a workhorse in my wardrobe in 2018. Perfect with T-shirts and sandals last summer, and equally perfect with sweaters and boots or loafers in these cooler months. I bought two (okay, maybe three) since I know I will wear it for years to come.

Louboutin sandals, Saint Laurent sandals, Manolo Blahnik boots, RE/DONE + Weejuns loafers, Taryn Rose Bootie, Jimmy Choo pump.

I  realize that a few of the shoes are almost sold out since I bought them last spring.

  • Preston,
    I love all of your favorites. I bought the Manolo boots earlier this year and they are perfect! Now have my eye on the skirt, the loafers, the short boots MG all of it.
    Question, what is your take on the Manolo Carolyne shoe. I had them many years ago but they never stayed on my ankle well, but am considering trying again???? Thoughts?
    Happy and healthy New Year to you and your family.

  • I love the Carolyne but haven’t worn in years. Will try again and let you know.

  • Thanks for reminding me about this skirt. I have a similar Vince but it has a small grey pin dot and sometimes I just want solid black. Have a question (no rush on the answer, it’s the holidays after all) but did the Weejuns need any breaking in? Thanks ❤️

  • The Weejuns were a snap to break in and I was surprised. Carried Band-aids in my handbag and only needed them once. Actually, I always carry them…
