High-fashion face nasks

Cellphone, keys, wallet, and my new must: my mask. I never thought THAT would make my checklist for leaving the house, but here we are. I found some beautiful ones and am ditching the powder blue and snow white styles. These are fun, funky, and would definitely make an impression that the CDC would blush at.

I fell in love with Victor de Souza's fuchsia coverup with detachable bow, and for more than a basic fabric covering, GRLFRND's mesh covering is like jewelry for your face.


Designer floral slippers

Raise your hand if you missed wearing high heels. I didn't. For the first time in my life, I happily embraced new words in COVID isolation like "comfy", "cushy", and "casual". My new obsession: fancy slippers. Birdies wovens became the must haves for answering the door for deliveries and walking the dog. They're shoes with slippers inside! These floral ones—The Phoebe—are $120 and perfect indoor/ outdoor with added cushions in the soles.

In 2019, tie dye was a huge trend on the runways from Prada and R13 (above), and it continues to this day. The TikTok and YouTube generation sees it as an individual expression as no two looks are the same. And in these heartwrenchingly sad times, the yearning for peace and hope is on everyone's minds. This old hippie loves onesies and T-shirts on my personal billboard: my dog! Moe Greene will be sporting an adorbs leash and collar Martingale set by Country Brook Design. This style is designed to keep dogs from slipping out.


Collection of colorful eyeliners

I needed this Sephora Collection eyeliner stick for my eyes which kept me glamorous for Zoom meetings and lasted all day. There are 37 different colors to choose from and are easy to apply and easy to smudge. I will now order a crate.

Staying at home for three months straight, I realized I needed a great chair for my official WFH status. Who thinks about things like this? EVERYONE. So there is a waitlist for this incredible chair—Layman High Back Ergonomic Mesh Executive Chair. It's great for the back, it tilts, and it rolls. And the colors... CHIC!
