It’s usually pretty hard for me to get out of bed on a rainy morning but when given the chance to meet Tory Burch and check out her Summer and Pre-fall collections, I awoke bright-eyed and ready to head down to her store in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Tory shared with us the exciting news that she’s launching a makeup line in 2011! For now, here’s a rundown of my fashion favorites:
Nashe Messenger: Tory actually arrived wearing this sleek messenger in white! I adore the mix of silver and hard materials around the Tory Burch logo.
Amber Sandal: An ideal summer flat that matches literally everything.
Naomi Pump: The perfect summer into fall heel. I love the mix of textures combined with the gold detailing.
Lee Lee flat: A nice update to the ever-so-popular Reva flat. I love the mix of metallics with snakeskin and suede.
Matthias Satchel: A classic combination of ivory and caramel mixed in with some light snakeskin for an edgy-ish look.
Metallic Reva Clutch: I’m loving the chain on this chic clutch. It’s perfect for a summer night out.
Budget conscious? Here are my picks for the best Tory Burch steals for your next jet-setting vacation with the girls:
Coated Cotton Small Cosmetic Case: After studying abroad in Venice, I’m pretty obsessed with gondolas. This print is fab and the bag is perfect to tote all of your makeup must-haves on your next vacation.
There’s also a SHIRT to match that, while not cheap, would make an amazing addition to your summer wardrobe.
Flip Flops: So luxe, so cute, so perfect for the beach. Not your ordinary flip flop…
Stitched Tote Bright: Buy this now! Marked down to $315 from $525, this bag is my favorite SALE item that you should get, um, yesterday.
It also happens to be one of Tory’s faves as well…
