One of my favorite Forrest Gump quotes is, “My mama always said you can tell a lot about a person by their shoes, where they going, where they been.” And if these shoes could you about someone they would say, she’s classic and aimless with a touch of prep and secretly comfortable because let me tell you… these smoking slippers are the comfiest pair I own. That’s saying something too because I have arthritis in my feet and toes.
Let me introduce you to the brand Hubbell Hille, the 3 founders are making it their mission to design comfortable and stylish shoes (and all while holding other full time jobs, can you say #bossbabes). Right now they have two styles of this slipper and 4 different colors. I went for the Hubbler 2.0 in coral which is almost like a Nantucket red.
Don’t just take my word on how comfy these shoes are though, try them out for yourself. If you use code “PM20” you can get 20% off. Let’s be twins, k?
You might recall from my InstaStories the beautiful package I was sent from Ellelauri last week. I’m a sucker for good presentation and this one did not disappoint but it’s what’s inside that was the real showstopper. The Ellelauri team picked out the Hartley dress just for me and I’d say they got my style down. It comes in classic navy and with a preppy collar detail!
If you’re not familiar with Ellelauri let me introduce you. This adorable women’s brand was co-founded by local entrepreneur Liz Rymar. Their designs have been worn by the Kardashians and Jessica Alba. You can shop their online store here or if you’re in the Philly area find them in Rittenhouse, Avalon and Chestnut Hill (seasonally).
Isn’t Instagram a beautiful thing? You can connect with the coolest people and discover the best new brands. That’s how I stumbled upon Dress for Cocktails and her line, The Cocktail Clutch. Her clutches are my latest and greatest obsession. Let me explain why…
To start you pick your clutch color/pattern, which there are plenty of choices from solids to stripes, even zebra. Then you pick your bows, which once again comes in various colors and patterns. The bows easily pop on and off of the clutch so you can change your look at any time. I’m always hesitant of products that transition, reverse or change as for some reason it lessens the quality and it never works quite how they say it will.
Let me tell you, this one is perfection. The bows have a magnetic clasp with clips on along the edge so the bows stay put and sturdy but can easily switch out. It’s flawless. Even the tags and branding are adorable with a little cocktail charm on the bag’s chain and a mirror inside the clutch. Plus, (as if it could get any better) the clutches are made in the USA.
Now I just can’t wait to see what her holiday collection will be!
