Get the Look: 30 Cute Cosmetic Cases

Last week I pulled together a collection of cute cosmetic cases, “Kiss & Make Up” in the Boston Globe. I generally like to do a travel-related roundup in the summer, and I had already done weekend bags last year.

Mostly, though, I was inspired by a particularly cute cosmetic case by Deux Luxe, that the publicist had sent me back in the winter—the Anguilla cosmetic case in jade green emblazoned with exotic birds. I love the look. Unfortunately it didn’t make it into the Globe, but I’ve included it here (#17), along with 29 other cute cosmetic case finds.

Bostonians, pay attention to #1, #9, and #18 by ultra preppy, Brookline-based design label Ame & Lulu. I’m kind of attached to #2 from Catseye London. Adorable, though maybe channels too much of a crazy cat lady vibe? There’s a doggie one as well (#21). And if you’re more of a boho girl, Target has a couple of great Coachella-worthy makeup bags (#5 and #8).

Browse through for a new one; you know yours is smeared with gunk. Me? I still use the iconic brown & white striped cosmetic bags and toiletry case from Henri Bendel, a long-ago gift from an ex boyfriend’s mom. And yeah, it’s a bit worn.

Get the Look: Multicolor Dinnerware

I got an email this morning alerting me to the new and very colorful dinnerware collection by The Novogratz, now available at Macy’s (see #9). That’s Cortney and Robert Novogratz, the husband and wife design duo and parents of seven children, whose fun aesthetic has been the subject of an HGTV show and several collections for CB2. I’ve long been a fan of the CB2 Family rug, which is sadly no longer in production. (I’d kinda been thinking about using it in our Florida condo.)

The dinnerware would look great in an all white decor, which got me thinking, what other colorful tabletop patterns are available, if one were to extend beyond white or basic neutrals Here are 17 multicolor dinnerware options I found. I’ve always loved iitala Origo (#10), and Donna’ Wilson’s pink pastel (#4) is adorable, if you had the right Scandinavian inspired space. Would you stray from white for any of these?

Even if you wear the most boring, I mean classic, little black dress, be sure to carry a jewel of a clutch. These 12 evening bags all cost under $50. Price is important if you’re only brandishing the sparkly bag once a year.

Get the Look: Crystal Ball Chandeliers

Following up on yesterday’s Montage: 20 Rooms with Crystal Ball Chandeliers, and simultaneously pushing my own living room light fixture quest forward, I scrounged around for crystal ball chandeliers and floral sputnik styles. While these all aren’t exactly uniform in style, I resisted the urge to include other types of globe-shaped pendants, like the pierced Oly pieces, or spikey corals, or capiz shell creations, or globules of hand blown glass, in the effort to (mostly) approximate a globe shape in crystal (or at least crystal detail).

The vintage Italian versions from 1st dibs (#11 and #21) are what I’d love to hang. #1, which is a contemporary version, is great looking too, though minus the patina. I discovered that Juliska makes light fixtures (who knew?) and I’m kinda smitten with the Serena & Lily (#5) in concept, though it skews too Moroccan for my own home. Check out #8; it’s quite beautiful, and interesting (and I wouldn’t have expected to find it at a department store). #7 is a popular pendant that gets the look across without being frouffy, and #15 is a bit more feminine, petite, and very inexpensive. Anyway, enough of my musing, have a look yourself and let me know your thoughts.
