Gala Gonzalez Interviews Style

How Influencer Gala Gonzalez Is Spending Her Summer (with Foreign Travel, Fashion, Food and Flats)

On Spanish style influencer Gala Gonzalez’s summer agenda: travel to 18 destinations, eat authentic Mexican food (in Mexico), lots of skin moisturizer, and French electro-pop. Throughout this, the Amlul blogger will be packing Gala sandals, designed by Pedro García. Her namesake shoes are just the latest in an ongoing collaboration between Gonzalez and fellow Spaniards Mila and Pedro García. “I have a deep personal relationship with them,” Gala says. “Also, I’m truly happy to spread a Spanish brand worldwide!” It’s an obvious fit for the fashionable brunette beauty who favors comfortable flats and fun times. “I feel very identified with their ‘think party, wear daily’ philosophy,” she says.

Elizabeth Cole Jewelry Is Made to Be Seen, Even When Not Worn

Forget peacocking, parrots are the new bird mascots of the fashion set. That was our thought when we saw designer Stephanie Owen’s glitzy menagerie. Owen is the designer and founder of Elizabeth Cole jewelry, a collection of outsized statement pieces in rainbow shades that get smiles and create big looks. Her crystal feathered friends first caught our eye, but other charming characters and her elegant, classic danglers equally captivate. Fashion mavericks like Katy Perry and Mary J. Blige have also fallen for her flash.

When we spoke with Stephanie recently, we learned about her personal trove of costume jewelry, her love of interior design and how she displays her rhinestone stash around her artful home.

Gift Yourself the Perfect Holiday Accessories

In the season of giving, we’re guilty of taking a “one for you, one for me” attitude when the gift is glamorous or glittery. Our weakness? Accessories. Lavish additions get us every time, and for good reason: a fresh pair of earrings or fun new pumps add panache to standby wardrobe staples. Still, we want to be selective in our splurges, bearing in mind the parties that we’ll attend. We’re practical–even about piling on more jewelry. 

Below, all the trimmings that we’re eyeing (plus shoppable links), curated by type of holiday party—and its festive song personality.

Goody Bags: Fall’s Styles Come in Every Flavor

Photos by Elizabeth Podlesnik

When the fall collections start to drop, we feel like a kid in a sugar shack. A kid who has no intention of stopping until our bellies ache and our pockets are full. Some of the sweetest treats each season are the new handbags. The textures, colors and styles are always so delicious. And this season is no exception. From cotton-candy-colored totes to licorice satchels and caramel suede minibags, there’s a purse for every palate.

We’ve rounded up an assorted pack of the best arm candy for fall. Here’s a look at our yummy stash.

How to Wear Fishnets Style

How to Wear Fishnets, Fall’s Most Alluring Accessory

A little punky, a bit pinup, the netted stocking has historically been a brazen wardrobe choice. From the Moulin Rouge to Madonna, fishnets simply add sexy. It’s impressive how so little (sometimes so very little) fabric can cause such frisson. And that’s exactly why it’s exciting to see the diamond threads peeking out from all sorts of styles this season.

We asked Nordstrom Styling Director Ruth Basloe how to interpret the hosiery now. Here are her tips for showing a little leg without looking like a showgirl.
