Richmond peeps, have you been to Roan in Carytown? If you haven’t, you need to get there. From one of a kind dresses for a special occasion to the perfect outfit for a drink at Can Can with friends, this boutique has got you covered. The eye for impeccable style and design that Hank, the owner/buyer, has is out of this world. As if the shopping experience that Hank and his team have created at Roan isn’t enough, do you see this Roksanda dress I am wearing? Hank picked it out for me! I am an all-black-everything kinda girl and this dress fulfills my all-black needs with just the right amount of white peaking from the back of it.

I’m a big fan of sunglasses that match the color of my hair. Prior to these Illestevas, the only pair in my wardrobe that fit this description were the champagne colored sunnies called “Remmy” by Raen Optics. While I love the Raen champagne colored sunglasses (and anything to do with champagne), you can never have too many amber-blondish sunglasses and these Illesteva’s proved just that. The combination of these amber frames with the silver mirrored lenses on these Leonard sunnies are the perfect pop of color in my typical Catherine all black ensemble. What is your go-to pair of sunglasses?

These Boots Were Made for my Closet >> the playlist

I have a habit of making playlists when I am daydreaming about items that should be in my closet or on my body…but aren’t. This creative process eases the longing that comes along with not being able to acquire said items. To clarify, these oh so inspired playlists are reserved for the types of beautiful things that require a lot of pretending and saving (the worst) on my part and not the “easy” ones.
