Anne’s “Favorite Five Things” is all the rage here at Peper & Parlor…and the Peper girls want IN!!!!! While we aren’t all brave enough to do a photo shoot, we do love to share the pieces we currently love. We decided that ever so often one of us will guest blog and chat about our favorites! We are so lucky our big sexy boss lets us have the pick of the litter at the shop – which makes us ever more knowledgeable about the products we get to take home…
Here are my current “must haves” (that I do have and I LIVE in)!
Raquel Allegra’s gold (mustard-y really) side-shred rayon dress! this is one of my favorite pieces – I’ve worn it to a wedding, to a conference, and to teach at Rutgers. I get tons of compliments every time and I feel sooooo comfy in all of Raquel’s pieces. She is definitely one of the Peper girl’s favorite designers!
How did i ever NOT own this Clare Vivier bag? It is by far the MOST supple, lightweight leather I have ever touched. It fits my iPad, a binder (with my student’s exams), my moleskin planner (so analog, right?), and all the other things I haul around. Anne know’s -and laughs- about the fact that I am obsessed with the ‘Attaché‘ (blame it on the scholar in me), and this bag is truly the PERFECT briefcase! So chic and effortless…YUM!
a peace treaty…how do you make the most simple pieces so damn stunning? Even my 10 year old cousin said that this was the “coolest” necklace she had ever seen..haa! This is called the “Hu necklace” and it is black thread wrapped on a spool..it is handmade and is antiqued gold plated brass. i wear it all the time y’all…even with my hoodie and yoga pants!
Enter: the perfect boot – P. Monjo’s lace-up. When we saw this at D+A at the trade show I literally cuddled them. I have been wearing them since we imported them from Spain earlier in the season. They are one of the most exquisite pair of boots I’ve worn – the hand-stitched Spanish artistry is evident. Yes, there are tons of knock-offs in similar styles…but “aint nothing like the real thing.” so comfy and again..I am LIVING in this boot!
So I will confess…I am a bit of a soap wh@re (can i even say that?). Well, I am always on the search for the perfect soap (I love Marfa, Malin+Goetz, and MOR) but when I stumbled across LUCIA last year I was in lathery-smell good-heaven! Even my hubby is a convert. So now the soaps are at Peper & Parlor, the full line will be available on our online shop too. We have the little guest size soaps in the shop too, in case you dont want to commit to the whole bar..but honestly..you won’t regret it!
Alright y’all, thanks for reading! Next time it’ll be another one of us Peper girl’s on our glittery soapboxes professing our love for all things fabulous! xo, yomaira
