Linda Loves Donald

D5Linda (Fargo) loves Donald.

Donald “Drawbertson” Robertson, that is. He of instagram fame for creating artwork out of tape. Yes, tape. And, to celebrate the launch of Donald’s self named book by Assouline, Bergdorf Goodman invited him to put his signature touch on everything from furniture and small goods to clothing and even a bike!

Linda’s, which is basically a curated closet of items Linda Fargo adores inside the hallowed halls of BG is one big eye-candy shop within a shop for the fashion minded. Leopard. Check. Feathers. Check. Statement piece coats. Check. Toss in her signature red and you’ve got yourself everything you might need to make an entrance!

So, it was the perfect place to host a book signing this past Monday for Donald – being NY Fashion Week and all.

If you’re heading into the city in the next month or so, be sure and stop by and be dazzled by the combination of these two creative geniuses. I loved Linda’s before, but Donald’s touch added whimsy and edge. They are a dynamic duo!D6 D8 D9 D10D12 D13 IMG_4557 IMG_4558Linda’s loves Donald and I love them both!

The New “It Bag” – Bergen Bags

Screen Shot 2017-03-09 at 8.29.15 AMThe hottest bag out there right now isn’t a Birkin bag…it’s a Bergen bag. Yes, as in Candice.

It all started when Ms. Bergen’s daughter asked her to paint on her Louis Vuitton duffle. She posted the results on Instagram and the rest as they say….was history. Since last summer, Candice has been taking orders and painting up a storm. She loves that she is doing something new at age 70. And, I love that, too!

If you have a bag that you’ve had a while, why not send it to Candice and have her personalize it. Instant conversation piece and treasure! More info can be found at BergenBags.com!Screen Shot 2017-03-09 at 8.06.43 PM

Mi Golondrina

brand-designerIt’s no surprise that I’m drawn to the designs and handmade quality of the clothing and soft goods from Mi Golondrina. As a girl, growing up in Texas, my grandparents lived just 5 miles from the Mexican border. Crossing over from Brownsville, TX to Matamoras to buy Mexican dresses and huaraches was a summer adventure. These styles remind me of those….only better!

Christina Lynch was inspired by her mother’s Mexican heritage to bring to life a stunning collection, handmade by Mexican women in small villages. Each piece is hand embroidered.

For the coming Spring/Summer season, this is at the top of my list. The off-the-shoulder tops paired with jeans or the dresses paired with sandals will be the perfect items to toss in your suitcase for a Spring Break vacation…and to enjoy into the summer. Available in both women’s and children’s sizes…the quality is amazing! brand-processScreen Shot 2017-02-21 at 10.40.56 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 10.41.03 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.52.53 PMScreen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.52.31 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.53.14 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.55.09 PMScreen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.56.14 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.55.27 PM Screen Shot 2017-02-21 at 5.55.37 PMEasy, elegant, beautifully made clothing….I’m ready to pack my suitcase and head South!
