New Year's Eve Three Ways! (no dress required)

New Year's Eve is just around the corner, but what to wear?!
This year, try foregoing a dress and instead think CHIC and COMFORTABLE!
We suggest a pair of super-versatile black Prima Cigarette Leg pants by AG Denim paired with one of the tops here that we are loving right now.

  • Glam in a gold halter style by Nicole Miller Artelier
  • A flowing sleeve in silk by Nicole Miller Artelier
  • A minimalist look in off-white leather by Hazel Brown

Just add champagne, jewelry, clutch, your favorite heels or a fab boot and you're ready to ring in the New Year in comfort AND style!

Fireplace and boyfriend optional

Need to relax? No fireplace? You need a Mad et Len candle or potpourri to warm your space.
Made by two globe-trotting adventurists, Sandra and Alexandre.
They settle down in a tiny village in the southern French Alps and begin making completely organic candles using the flora and fauna that surround them. Notes of moss, violet, soil, oak, eucalyptus, cypress, wood, pine, orange blossom and mint.
They happen to have a blacksmith friend who fires up a hand-forged black iron tin to house the aromatic candles.
You supply a glass of burgundy and your favorite movie or playlist. Boyfriend optional.

Known to last longer than some relationships. A great pair of Italian boots.

They've been known to last longer than some relationships
Boots you'll always reach for this year
Next year
Maybe even in five years or more
It's a well-made Italian boot
These are the boots Blanc girls can wear all day long, dash off for dinner after a busy day and STILL feel comfy.
Try on a pair and see what we're talking about.

A Fresh Spin on Your Old Cashmere

Today this Blanc girl is pulling all of her favorite cashmere sweaters out from their various hiding places and welcoming them back into the world because 'tis the season...yay! But not before I give them a yummy, fresh wash with Tocca "Laundry Delicate" with that scrumptious Italian Blood Orange scent.  If you could only smell what I am smelling in my laundry room right now....oh, but you CAN! Why stop there? If you're feeling ambitious this week like me, you can use it on your lingerie, silks and bed linens, too! Who knew fall could smell so delicious?!

Bond Girls and Bay Area Girls agree...

Behind the Scenes: Blanc's Parisian Buying Trip for Spring '18 (Installment #8)

Nancy's favorite sneaks...OXS Rubber Soul

You've probably seen Nancy wearing her skinny jeans or long skirts and sporting a pair of fabulous OXS Rubber Soul sneaks, she loves them! High in style and SUPER comfy (they kind of feel like walking on marshmallows, if I'm being honest). She naturally had to stop into the OXS showroom in Paris to see the new offerings (and probably pick out a new pair for herself).
