Jessie's Beauty Uniform / A Cup Of Jo

Category: News

We’ve long been fans of Joanna Goddard, the magazine-writer-turned-blogger and mastermind behind the lifestyle blog A Cup Of Jo. She’s what you would call an “OG” blogger; Since first creating ACOJ in 2007 she’s gone on to receive much deserved admiration from her diverse readership and has helped to inspire and define the style and voice many of her contemporaries today. It pretty much goes without saying - we’re beyond thrilled to share Jessie's profile in the clever series, “My Beauty Uniform”. Here are a few of our favorite quotes and a selection of photos by Julia Robbs. Visit A Cup Of Jo to read the full story.

 

 

What did your mother—or aunts or grandmothers—teach you about beauty? My paternal grandmother had great style. We would watch soap operas, read The Enquirer and do our nails while she smoked. It was everything my (very natural) mother couldn't deal with; I'm sure it drove her crazy. But that sense of fun rubbed off on me. I loved spending time with her and loved her bright red lips.

 

What are you teaching your sons about beauty? Since I have boys, I think there's less pressure in some ways to teach them about beauty. But I definitely don't want them to hear me talking about "Oh, I need to lose weight," which is not good for any kid to hear. That's one of the reasons I tried to get back into fitness. Two years after I had my littlest, I hadn't really done any physical exercise at all. I started getting back into it last year and one reason was that I wanted them to see how, as much as I take care of them, I also take time to take care of myself.

 

What's your happy place? I really like having a craft project going. It relaxes me. A year or two ago, Martha Stewart had this thing about cross-stitched portraits. I got obsessed with that article and started making them of my kids. Then I got overly ambitious for a fundraiser at my son's school and cross-stitched a pillow with a portrait of each of the kids in my son's class—there were 21! It came out so cute. It was a lot of work; it took my entire Christmas vacation. We went to Jamaica and I was on the beach cross-stitching. It was really calming. Now I'm working on a cross-stitch of our entire family tree.

We're excited to share this beautiful campaign by our friends at Shopbop that features an array standout pieces from the Loeffler Randall Fall 2014 collection. The styling is fresh with vibrant colored clothes and jewelry worn against LR prints. We especially love seeing our Irini sneaks with a knee-length skirt - a look we can totally picture ourselves stepping out in this season.

Fall Staff Picks - Pt. 1

Category: How We Wear It, News

Summer's no-where near gone, but a cool front in NYC and the trickling in of our new Fall collection has everyone at the LR headquarters practically ready to pull out our sweaters, hats and socks. Besides a gorgeous array of new tall boots, wool and shearling texture block on handbags and slip-on sneaks, not to mention plenty of printed haircalf, there are also many new styles designed to be easy transitional pieces that we can actually start wearing right away!

 

Below was overheard around the office about the pieces we're most excited about  - even if we have to wait a few more weeks to wear some of them.

 

1. The Charlie Chelsea Bootie

WILLA

ecommerce

 

"I'm going to be wearing my Charlie booties non-stop! I just love an easy slip-on and a bit of added durability from a rubber lug sole. I can tell they'll only keep looking better the longer I wear them."

 

2. The Pari Classic Pump

BETTY

shipping and logistics

 

"I love the bright pop of color from the magenta haircalf of the Pari pumps. This is a heel that I can wear through the day and after work, the shape is so sexy but also classic."

 

3. The Irini Slip-on Sneaker

JESSIE

design

 

"My fall go-to will be the Irini slip-on in shearling and black leather. I love the way shearling feels like a new neutral and I am living in sneaks these days."

 

4. The Rashida Perforated Bootie

RACHEL

ecommerce

 

"I am so excited to wear my new Rashida kitten keels. I love that I can wear them in early fall with jeans and tee and then into winter with tights and a skirt for a completely different look. Plus, the heel is low enough to wear all day but the perforation makes them special enough to wear at night."

 

5. The Walker Clutch

LAUREN

sales

 

"I’m psyched for fall – so begins the season of comfort. I’m going to wear my Walker Clutch with everything. It will be perfect for after-work cocktails paired with a white leather midi-skirt or just running around Soho in jeans and a tee."

New Fall 2014 Shoes + Handbags

Category: News

 

Loeffler Randall Fall/Winter shoes and handbags are here! The collection began with the idea of coats- specifically, motojackets. This idea combined with the inspiration of Karlheiz Weinberger’s photos of ‘Rebel Youth,’ led to the exploration of new materials and texture mixing. A wide variety of materials were used from buffalo leather to shearling panels to melton wool and pebbled feathers to create this toughened up, yet pretty and chic collection.

 

Following up on Pre-Fall artisonal details of raw edges on leather, stich details, and super thick soles, the unique color combinations and textures of this collection introduce new styles and silhouettes for the fall and winter season. The color palette is grounded in neutrals like deep blush, cognac, black and cream, with an important color combination being black and evergreen.
