NEULASH // Naturally I have sad, stubby lashes *womp womp* so I was thrilled when I discovered NeuLash a few years back. It has done wonders for my eyelashes! To compensate for shorter lashes for a brief time I was getting lash extensions, but they proved to be time consuming, expensive, and quite damaging (there is not a scarier sight I can think of than after your eyelash extensions are removed – am I right?!). NeuLash is rarely discounted so now is the perfect time to try it out for the first time, or if you are like me, to stock up!

ORIBE // A total cult/influencer favorite, this product absolutely lives up to the hype and smells like a dream. This lil’ travel kit is the perfect introduction to the brand – if you haven’t tried it already! I travel a lot and I am always on the hunt for my favorite products that are available in travel sizes. This trio was a no brainer for me!

T3 CURLER // I have not been curling my hair as often lately, and I’ll admit I have been rocking the low bun A LOT, but when I do curl my hair I trust T3! The appliances are effective, heat up fast, and never die – and trust me, I run things into the ground. If you are looking for a new curling iron, or an amazing gift, I would highly consider this!

KATE SOMERVILLE // I was introduced to the Kate Somerville brand a few years back and while they have an incredible array of products, this one is by far my favorite. A face cleanser that really works and is perfect for my skin – such a win-win. It is effective on all skin types and is one of the only exfoliators I have used where I have noticed a real difference in my skin immediately after use!

SETTING SPRAY // I have talked about this product time and time again. I didn’t really think I needed a setting spray for my makeup…until I discovered how incredible this one is. I was running low, so the #nsale was the perfect time to replenish – especially this time of year when my makeup can have the tendency to just melt off my face!

NEW DESIGNERS // 11 BRANDS I FOUND ON INSTAGRAM

new designers atlantic-pacific

Dress: Style Temple // Hat: Eliurpi

I often get questions about how I shop, discover new brands, and dig up unique pieces. These days, I find nearly all the new designers (or new-to-me) through Instagram – as well as other influencers. My hope is that when you visit Atlantic-Pacific you discover something – be it a new way to wear color, a surprising layering technique that you haven’t thought of, or a new brand that speaks to you. Today, I wanted to walk through and highlight a few of the new designers and brands that have caught my eye over the past few months!


YULIYA MAGDYCH

new designers atlantic-pacific

ONE // I think Yuliya Magdych loves color just as much as I do! This Ukrainian born designer is obsessed with the art embroidery and techniques that have been passed down in her family for generations. Her gorgeous caftans, robes, and dresses are all inspired by her vibrant personal style and desire to rethink and reimagine traditional Ukrainian wares.


MEDEA

new designers atlantic-pacific

TWO // Medea is a ‘Made in Italy’ accessories brand that is blending shapes, color, and size to create the chicest minimal shopper bags. Think luxe leathers and every color under the sun. Rhianna is a huge fan and so am I!


BRINKER & ELIZA

new designers atlantic-pacific

THREE // The mother/daughter duo of Brinker & Eliza produces handmade jewelry out of their studio in Connecticut. Each piece is quirky and fun and begging to be stacked! The stop and stare sunnies chain is the perfect compliment to so many of my bright translucent frames.


MERLETTE

new designers atlantic-pacific

FOUR // The Merlette collections are designed in New York for women who favor feminine yet contemporary style. Thin perfect simple summer dresses and minimal airy poplin frocks. Their pieces are equally amazing back to a simple sandal as they are layered and over accessorized.


AURELIA DEMARK 

new designers atlantic-pacific

FIVE // Okay, so I didn’t find this designer on Instagram, I met her years ago when we were both working at Tory Burch! Since then we have become such dear friends. Aurelia Demark, working alongside her artist mother, makes unique and timeless fine jewelry keepsakes for all the most wonderful moments in your life. Each piece can be customized through machine or hand engraving to make one-of-a-kind.


LEAL DACCARRETT

new designers atlantic-pacific

SIX // The Colombian husband-and-wife designer duo behind Leal Daccarett are becoming a fast-favorites here at Atlantic-Pacific. I’ve already worn a few of their pieces (see here and here). I love the femininity and fun of each piece and the magical attention to proportion and print!


EMME PARSONS

new designers atlantic-pacific

SEVEN // Emme Parsons is a Los Angeles based footwear label designing for women with a focus on thoughtful details and elevated functionality. Strappy is in this season, and look no further for some of the most beautifully simple designs.


STELLA & AMELIA

new designers atlantic-pacific

EIGHT // My love for South American designers and brands seemingly has no end! Stella & Amelia is an Ecuadorian brand that combines textures, fabrics, and prints to create a playfulness that is equally romantic. Shocker, I’ve had my eye on a few of the ruffled and oversized polka dot maxi dresses!


THE LAST LINE

new designers atlantic-pacific

NINE // The Last Line is taking a new approach to precious jewelry, offering fine jewelry at fair prices in limited collection drops. The pieces are fun, quirky, colorful, and meant to last forever. I’m particularly fond of the diamond heart pendants!


ALAMEDA TURQUESA

new designers atlantic-pacific

TEN // Okay so this brand isn’t entirely new to me, in fact, the above bag has been on repeat on my site (see herehere and here). Alameda Turquesa, founded by a mother/daughter duo in Portugal, make so much more than just bags. I’m excited to see more of the shoes and accessories and especially where they decide to take the ready-to-wear pieces!


ANDREA AYALA

new designers atlantic-pacific

ELEVEN // Andrea Ayala has a way with ruffles and high ow hems on both solid and floral pieces. I just picked up a top and pant from this designer and can’t wait to style them. Stay tuned!

THE FIVE ITEMS I AM BUYING FROM #NSALE 2019 //

The Nordstrom anniversary sale has just started and I am highlighting the 5 items I am purchasing this year. I ordered everything yesterday – but I won’t be receiving the pieces until next week – so I’ll keep you updated on my thoughts. The sale is open today to Nordstrom cardholders and the top Nordy club members and will open to the public 7/19!  

STAR COAT // This star print coat is the item that I am the most excited about. If you know me you know that I love a good statement coat. I have bought Avec Les Filles pieces in the past and have been impressed. I plan on finding ways to print mix this style in fall – possibility with polka dots – but also think the coat is adorable with jeans and Golden Goose sneakers for a more casual off duty look. This was the other coat option that I was eyeing in the sale, but ultimately I decided to go with the more emotional choice – STARS!

BLAZER // While I have quite a few blazers, I loved the longer cut of this style, and decided to add it to my wardrobe. At $112 dollars it felt like a no brainer. Since I absolutely love layering, I know that I’ll get a lot of use out of this piece once the season changes. I also loved this plaid trench that is in the sale, but I just picked up this Maje plaid trench and felt like they were just a bit too similar.

POLKA DOT JUMPSUIT // I have been really into green lately and when I saw this polka dot jumpsuit with it’s green dot I just knew it would end up in my closet. I plan on belting it and pairing it with this green bag and this green organza trench!

STRIPED TEE // While #nsale is a great time to stock up on basics, I’ve focused more on picking up fashion pieces. That being said, I did end up picking up this more basic striped tee. I have plenty of boatneck, loose fitting striped tees, but have been on the hunt for a more fitted scoop neck option. This one certainly fits the bill. If you are looking for some great basics in the sale this year, Nordstrom has a ton to offer including my favorite Spanx leggings, my favorite madwell denim cut and these amazing boots that I have owned for over 4 years!

TURTLENECK SWEATER // Halogen has re-released the turtleneck from my collection in a few repeat colors/stripes as well as some brand new colors! I love the material and fit (obviously) so I snagged it in two new solid colors. If you don’t prefer a solid, you can also buy the signature rainbow stripe or black/white combo!
