Good morning! You may have noticed things look a bit different around here today. After celebrating LDV’s tenth anniversary, I thought it was time for a little facelift. The new site is much more robust, easy to navigate, and feels like a natural fit as we grow. There are a few kinks that we will be working out over the next couple of days, so please be patient with us. For subscribers, you’ll notice the latest email sent overnight looked a little off, so we are working to resolve those issues as well. Thank you in advance for understanding and I hope you like the latest iteration of LDV!
Although it isn’t officially summer yet, it certainly feels like it here in Houston! We had visitors in town from California and the East Coast last week while photographing my home for an upcoming magazine feature and I felt so badly that they were here in the middle of the scorching temperatures, when just a couple of weeks ago, it had been beautiful with temperatures in the mid seventies. I’m not sure if it is getting hotter and hotter each year or if my tolerance for it is just getting lower each year as I get older! Alas, I’ve spent my entire life in Houston, so at this point, I am used to the heat. In any case, the hot weather has me thinking about chic summer pieces like breezy dresses, pretty tops, woven summer bags, and of course, stylish sandals. So many of my favorite shops, such as Net-A-Porter, Moda Operandi, and Matches are having huge sales right now, so I am planning to stock up on some summer staples as well as on pieces that will take me through the fall. What are you currently shopping for?
