I’ve Lived in NYC and Miami—These Are the Biggest Style Differences

Published

on

From the drastic difference between a New York winter and a Miami one (if it can be even called that, as I sit here writing this in 85-degree weather in December) to the innate energy of each city, the style similarities between New York and Miami are hard to come by.

As a fashion editor, entering new style territory has been an enjoyable task to take on over the last several months. I’ve traded a majority of my pants, from denim to workout leggings, for shorts and skirts, and I’ve kissed most of my boots goodbye for the time being and have ushered in a plethora of sandals. And yes, I find myself asking why I felt the need to pack all 100+ of my sweatshirts and sweaters. New moves always foster new beginnings, and I have realized it has also brought out a different style side in me. Though it’s no secret that I love bikinis, I have begun to tap into a more colorful, flirty side of fashion.

While I will always be a Manhattan girl at heart, I am embracing Miami’s culture, and most importantly, having fun with the fashion. Keep scrolling to discover the main style differences between NYC and Miami, and decide which one is for you.

Beach or No Beach—Here Are the 10 Bikini Trends to Try This Summer

Published

on

If you haven’t heard of manifestation, let me enlighten you. Manifestation is a self-help movement centred around the activity of focusing one’s thoughts upon the desired outcome. Essentially, it means that you can think something into actually happening. 

Perhaps this is why I placed an order for a new bikini in the middle of February. Of course, I have no plans of jetting off to tropical climates this year. Still, perhaps my purchase was an act of subconscious manifestation—that we’ll have a warm enough summer to sit in the park, on the beach, on our balconies and in our gardens quite comfortably in a bikini. 

Assuming some of you are shopping with the same logic, I decided to find out which bikini trends the experts are backing for a summer spent on home soil. I reached out to Carly Warson and Stephanie Korn—founders of my all-time favourite swimwear label, Form and Fold, which creates chic swimwear that actually fits and flatters my 32G bust—as well as Lily Russo, a fashion editor turned beachwear guru and founder of the fabulous resort and swim destination Beach Flamingo. Together, they’ve worked up a comprehensive list of the most stylish bikini trends 2021 has to offer. Scroll below to see and shop them, then start planning your staycation accordingly.

These 30 Vintage Hermès Bags Are Statistically Smart Investments

Published

on

When you think of luxury brands, there’s one that immediately comes to mind as being the most prestigious of them all: Hermès. The legendary French fashion house epitomizes craftsmanship and heritage and remains one of the world’s most sought-after brands.

You may have heard that the elusive Birkin bag is a better investment than the stock market, but just how smart of an investment are we talking? I reached out to our friends at The RealReal—one of the premier luxury consignment destinations—to find out all the industry secrets when it comes to Hermès bag resale value. I learned that French heritage brands top the list when it comes to the luxury brands that earned consignors the most of their original investment back, with Hermès leading the pack. 

“We found that during the pandemic’s economic uncertainty, shoppers were gravitating toward the safest bets in luxury: investment pieces, and handbags in particular. They’re spending on high-value, timeless styles, like Hermès handbags, that have enduring resale value—knowing they can consign them in the future to recoup most of that investment or wear those classic pieces for decades to come,” explains Sasha Skoda, head of women’s at The RealReal. 

“Hermès is the ultimate example of a brand with timeless styles that transcend trends and ultimately commands stronger resale value and demand, especially its Birkin and Kelly handbags. Hermès resale value is up 28% compared to last year, and Birkins lead the pack with an average selling price up over $4000 USD year over year. Kelly and Birkin styles from the ’80s and ’90s can fetch close to the original retail price and more.”

So as you can see, not only are you likely to get your money back selling an Hermès bag, you’re actually likely to make money doing so. According to The RealReal, one of the top handbags to consign from Hermès is the Birkin 25. In 2020, they sold Birkin 25s at an average of 210% of their original retail price! If you’re now sold on the investment and looking to browse for vintage Hermès bags, make sure you’re doing so at a trusted pre-owned luxury re-seller. Sites like The RealReal, What Goes Around Comes Around, Vestiaire Collective, and LePrix are great for finding authenticated gems. Below are a few more tips to keep in mind when considering an Hermès bag purchase to maximize the return on your investment.
