The art of the treasure hunt is being open to any find at any time, while maintaining a greater perspective of items you’re hoping to score. That’s the thrill for me at least. I’m always looking for luxury textiles when I’m at Crossroads. Silks, cashmere, & luxury items pull me first. Sweaters are an absolute great item to peruse at any Crossroads.
I picked up this crimson beauty in Studio City. I’m crazy about a super soft and cozy sweater that gives a pop of color to the grayer skies of colder weather. This one boasts side slits – another super favorite fashion feature – so it’s ultra-easy to wear and lends itself very well to 501’s, another fave. Plus, it’s 90% merino // 10% cashmere.
Are you a sweater person? How do you like them? Fitted? Turtleneck? Ultra Chunky? Cropped? Oversize? Or ALL of the sweaters (like me)?
The accessory counter is one area in Crossroads, I make sure I always check out. There are so many opportunities for high quality, beautiful frames at an absolute steal. I picked up these classic, tortoise shell Westward Leaning sunnies at the Santa Monica store. The best part, they are handmade in California.
One of my greatest passions is shopping in zip codes that aren’t my own. With Crossroads, I can always get a bit of local flavor as the community surrounding each location quite literally stocks each store. While I was in Costa Mesa, CA, I spotted a Crossroads, and within 2.5 seconds, I was parked and inside.
I bought a few items that day, and one of the stars to emerge are these furry heels! These are the type of fashion item that you’re on the fence whether it’s the most amazing thing you’ve ever seen OR not at all. I went with amazing, and it wasn’t a mistake! I get compliments everywhere I go, and they are super comfy and elevate every look I pair with them. Personally, I think any design or fashion item that pushes the envelope a bit is typically the most exciting and winds up being my favorite element.
With the holiday season in full swing, I am entering into constant holiday dressing mode. I love to dress with a festive twist the whole month of December to keep in the spirit. Of course, when dressing for a particular holiday or season, I immediately think of seasonal colors that I can play up and pair. This time of year, red and green are the most popular colors when it comes to Christmas decorating, but they are not always the easiest colors to pair together without looking like a walking Christmas tree decoration.
