Okay seriously though I have been drooling over Marissa Webb’s leather shorts for quite some time now. Also her leather pants (HERE). I always tell myself if I am going to invest in something it better be black or white because they are so timeless and obviously go with everything – I am also just a sucker for leather. And obviously everyone needs a good, quality cross body and some black booties.

For you leather lovers out there – while I was in NYC, David and I stopped by Marissa Webb’s home to say hello and to look at her gorgeous home (my dream NYC home, and don’t get me going on her closet.) and she was telling me that to keep her leather tight she soaks them for a few hours and then sticks them in the dryer! (NOT the washing machine though!) Which I would have never thought to do and she said most don’t because its kinda scary messing with leather especially when you invest in it. But coming from her, I trust it.  She makes some of my all time favorite pieces- like the ones that you lose sleep over thinking of ways you can make the money to purchase them or justifying just buying them right then.

Anyways, I hope you all have an amazing weekend!! I have no idea what our plans are but I do know we are leaving for Barbados on Sunday!! So get ready for lots of pics! I will also be shooting a look book for Swim Spot while I am there so stay tuned and follow my instagram (@amberfillerup) for all my pics 🙂

  1. I love the black bag and I agree with you about investing. If you are going to spend a lot of money on something, it better be timeless!

    Thanks for sharing!

    1. I know me too but I think I will try it out!! And aw thanks girl!!! 🙂

  2. Ahhh those booties! I often find myself wearing black a little too much. But you are right… Classic and worth the investment. Yay vacation! Sorry in advance for the broken heart you will feel for having to leave your puppy. He will be so tickled when you guys get home. It’s a good feeling to be missed 🙂

    1. Aw I know I am so sad to leave him! But he is actually going to stay at this Bed and Biscuit (how cute is that??) with other dogs so he will probably really enjoy it! He hasn’t been around other puppies since we got him so I am excited for him to play with others!! But yes I will miss him like CRAZY!!

  3. We went to Barbados last year, it’s a beautiful place! They like tall blondes….. so be careful of the creepos… 🙂

    1. Really?! Aw yay that makes me even more excited!! And yikes k I will watch out 🙂

    1. Yes agreed such a classic color! And I know I have been wanting to buy those booties I think I just need to do it already!! 🙂
