Birkenstocks Forever!

BIRKENSTOCKS Arizona Soft Sandals

Birkenstocks are a perennial classic. They’re not just for your ceramics teacher from high school or the tourist trudging around the big city, Birks are for everyday and can be dressed up or down. What was once considered an “earth shoe” and only came in hues of beige, tan, and black, has morphed into a cacophony of colors and styles to suit tons of personalities. I have SO many pairs of Birkenstocks and swear by them all year around.

I prefer the classic 2 strap Arizona or the clog-gy Boston and pair them with socks, dresses, shorts, jeans…whatever! With metallics, neons, faux fur / shearling, and lots of limited edition collabs (hello Rick Owens!!), the selection is literally endless. I even put my name on the Birkenstock alert list at and I always end up buying 1 or 2 new pairs a season. They are so comfortable right out of the gate and honestly I never have to worry about blisters or breaking them in. They wear like iron and can be cleaned up in a pinch which makes them even more of a no brainer. For my next pair I may try the Olsen twin preferred Gizeh or maybe the three strap Florida. Wild!

BIRKENSTOCK Boston Shearling

They literally only have 2 Birkenstock stores in all of the US and one just opened in Venice on Abbot Kinney. Since that is totally my neck of the woods you better bet that I’ll lining up Supreme style to get my hands on the latest cork classics.

The sisters Sorellina, nee´ Carosella, craft covetable, colorful art deco-inspired jewelry that has pizazz and punch. While the designs are bold, they are scaled so well which makes still easy enough to wear on the regular. We’re obsessed with their guitar pick earrings and their Tablet necklaces and just want to be cool enough to throw them on. Here’s to hoping (and shopping!).

Chatting with Ariane Goldman

Ariane Goldman didn’t just get into the bridal or maternity game to repeat what’s long been the industry standard—she reinvented it.
