Discovering new brands is one of my absolute favorite things about fashion. Learning about fresh designers is something that keeps my passion alive! My friends and I are always sharing new discoveries, collections, and anything that we think suits our personal style.

That’s why I’m so excited to share a new brand that I recently discovered with all of you! EDDY is a feminine brand that combines whimsical bohemian elements with tailored pieces for the modern woman. I found this gorgeous new brand online, and was instantly in love! On top of being attracted to the bold prints, flattering silhouettes, and luxe details, I happen to know the designer! ‘’

What a small world! She’s always been the girl you want to be your friend, you want to dress like – and now we can!

When ordering my first round of EDDY, I was really attracted to the bold blue print which reminded me of some Indian fabrics that my mom has worn over the years. I love how EDDY combines global influences, luxe-feeling fabrics, and a girly charm with every single piece. Let me tell you…everything is quality. From the construction of the garments to the packaging when you receive, this brand is doing it right!

This summer catch me wearing my two-piece set and sundress all season long! Next up on my order list are some fun blazers with detailed beading and embroidery, and I can’t wait to see the Fall collection. You can follow @eddy_aesthetic on Instagram for more details on the brand and sneak peeks of upcoming designs. I hope you love this brand as much as I do!

Thank you to EDDY for partnering on this post.

And Just Like That

Did anyone else love the Sex and The City revival? While I didn’t think it was perfect, I thoroughly enjoyed stepping back into the world of our favorite New York City gals. And besides continuing the story, I was of course excited to see all of the fashion!

One of the looks that stood out to me was Carrie’s sky-blue date-night dress. Turns out, it’s available for mere mortals like us to purchase! I instantly tried my hand at recreating her look with the Norma Kamali dress and a white blazer. The dress is one of the designer’s classic pieces, which has a sculpting panel underneath all of the ruching to ensure it’s super flattering to the body. While I love pale blue, I imagine it’s also beautiful in a variety of other colors, including black. 

What do you all think? Did I do Carrie justice?

Dress: Norma Kamali. Blazer: Zara (old). Heels: Stuart Weitzman.

Lust List

Bold Belts

Have you all noticed that designer belts are all the rage again? And while I think the Gucci belt is the most common, there are some other more unique brands on the market. Since 2022 is the year of Valentino so far, I opted for their reversible wide style. But here are my other personal picks for the luxe designer belt trend. 

Valentino (pictured): I love that this belt is reversible in two neutral shades. The buckle has some gravitas to it and feels expensive. 

Hermes: The most classic luxe belt! I love the different color combinations and the iconic H buckle that is recognizable from afar! 

Loewe: I have a thing for the anagram logo, and I love that this luxe brand is a little less common. 

Dior: There’s something about the Montaigne style “CD” that is so sleek and classic. Another reversible belt, you’ll have this one for years to come.
