New Year, New Designers: Florabella


We don’t know about you, but these last two weeks back at work have been so exhausting. Not having a holiday break to look towards excitedly makes everything seem a little more depressing and dull.

There have been a few comforts—we have a long weekend, and this week has been unseasonably warm for January in New York.

But we can’t help it: we need to plan a vacation. We have been eyeing thoses tropical flight deals like it’s our job. We are thinking a weekend in Bermuda in February.

And there’s one designer we are definitely packing in our luggage: Florabella.

Florabella is another one of the designers that we are loving in our closets as we start the New Year, and shopping tropically helps alleviate the winter blues.

Florabella is a boutique designer that creates stylish beachware for women of all ages who have the tropical bug. The brand is sophisticated and chic, but still has old-school undertones that make their products timeless.

Florabella is known especially for their hats. And (oh my gosh) they have the cutest sunhats we have seen.

One of our favorites is the Melina Wide Sun Hat in Storm Silver. This hat is so chic. It begs to be worn in the Keys with a brightly colored sundress. The metallic sheen is the perfect complement to loud pinks and yellows, and can be dressed up or down.


If your vibe is more girl-next-door, we love the Florabella Sun Hat in Natural Silver. This is the quintessential sunhat. There is no better accessory for the beach than this—it provides the coverage you need while being a neutral-enough statement perfect for your favorite bathing suit or sundress.


But Florabella’s hats aren’t the only perfect part of the designer. Her kaftans embody the chic ease you want for a weekend at the beach.

We had to get the Florabella Montage Short Kaftan in White. It’s simple and elegant. The lace details are sweet and the cotton gauze is so airy and light! It’s our go-to for a neutral coverup that looks perfect in every tropical occasion.


New Year, New Designers… Welcome Alice D!


Hello fashionistas and welcome to what is sure to be the most innovative and exciting year in fashion so far!

As the new year kicks off, we are stocking our shelves with new designers who you need to stock your closet with right this minute.

One of our new favorite designers that we just had to bring to you is the exquisite Alice D.

It’s not secret that at Paula and Chlo, we absolutely love girl power. There’s something so special and important in women wearing other women’s designs. And it’s harder to find a stronger mother-daughter power couple than Alice and Donatella. 

Alice D is a brand that truly celebrates where it is from. Alice D bags are handcrafted in Milan (or Milano, if you are a local) using the finest Italian craftsmanship. These ladies have built a brand that uses only the best techniques to produce their pieces.

alice d

These are people who know how to put together a bag. And an important part of that is only using the materials that are the very best, which is why they they don’t use any chemicals.  As someone very proud of that part of their culture, Alice D remains deeply invested in preserving the authenticity and history of the Italian leather craft in order to create timeless, classic bags for customers who appreciate the simplicity of a fine leather bag– as you know, a necessity in every closet.

Yes– you read that right. There are absolutely no chemicals in these gorgeous and luxurious pieces.


These bags are gorgeous without being overly ornate. Their beauty is in their simplicity. They are simple and chic, and we can’t get over how we want every. single. one. of these pieces!

Love the style, but we don’t have the exact one you are looking for? Let us know in the comments because Alice D can fully customize these bags just for you.

Check out some of the bags we have now in stock now below.

Sparkling Through the New Year


As New Year’s Eve approaches, we want to ring in the new year with a new sparkle—and even better, with new accessories!

We can’t believe the big night is just over a week away—we still are writing 2015 on all our Christmas cards! As we spend evenings wrapping presents and shopping to find that perfect outfit, somethings are easy. One of the simplest things we did this season was find the perfect accessories for whatever adorable Express or BCBG piece we end up wearing.

Here’s a list hand-picked for you so that you can find the perfect piece and stop stressing about your look and start thinking about who you want to kiss when the ball drops!

  1. Kendra Scott Tricia Shoulder Duster Ear Jackets in Gold

    We love this earrings. They are the perfect holiday earring for seriously all occasions. These pieces are chic and trendy. Their gold color with quartz gems are stunning; they are the perfect shape for off the shoulder pieces because of their length; they are a standout piece that can be paired with so many chic necklaces.

2. Kendra Scott Tima Earrings


These dainty pieces are exactly the ones we want when we aren’t feeling chandeliers. These are artfully designed and simply made so that you are able to wear them from one event to another without the need to reapply. Something else we love about these earrings is how lovely they show up in photographs! You will always be Instagram-ready in these cute studs. 

3. Kendra Scott Anastasia Necklace


Obviously, this necklace screams New Year’s Eve. With the gorgeous quartz stones over the delicate gold chain, this is the perfect necklace to complement your sparkly dress (and personality!). We love the back part of the necklace too– such great detailing for an open back dress!

4. Kendra Scott Phara Necklace in Gold


If you are a fan of the simpler look but still want to be stand-out on New Year’s Eve, you have got to wear the Kendra Scott Phara Necklace. It’s absolutely stunning– the simple design and gorgeous details are perfect for statement sweaters and deep-V necklines. You can’t go wrong here!

How are styling yourself for New Year’s Eve? We can’t wait to see how you ring in 2017 as the most stylish year yet.

Holiday gift guide: The Travelista


Happy shopping season, fashionistas!

This has been the biggest year for online holiday shopping EVER, and we are so thrilled that you have chosen Paula and Chlo to find the perfect gift for your loved ones.

Last week, we highlighted some of the absolute best gifts for your mom, and today we want to show you some of what we think are the best gifts for your travel-loving friends.

Today we have some of the best gifts for the stylish travelista in your life.

It would be wrong to start any holiday list without the White + Warren Travel Wrap. You love, I love it, a closet isn’t complete without it! This is what your travel-loving friend needs to keep herself protected from too-cool plane rides or chilly city exploration evenings. Plus, it comes in so many colors, so you can find the one your friend will love!


When it comes to travel bags, you can’t go wrong with gifting the Sondra Roberts Puffer bag. It’s so lightweight that your travelista won’t hurt herself as she treks from city to city on a post-grad trip to Europe. Plus, because it’s Sondra Roberts, it’s high-quality and durable (like everything at Paula & Chlo!).


If your friend is addicted to taking overnight buses or long flights to get about the world, she needs something to help her catch her zzz’s. For those wanderlust-filled ladies, she absolutely needs the White + Warren travel sleep mask! Done in the signature cashmere that makes White + Warren absolute luxury, the silk lining will make her feel like she’s sleeping on a luxurious mattress, instead of cramped in coach!


For your friend who loves getting her passport stamped, she needs something to protect it! The Rebecca Minkoff Passport Holder in cobalt blue is so darling and functional, she just has to have it. It comes in a variety of colors, so pick the one that you feel like matches her travel vibe!


For your friend who spends her winter dreaming of tropical getaways, you should give her the piece of clothing that is ready to take on whatever spur of the moment trip she thinks of. A kaftan is perfect to travel with because it can be worn 3 ways and can be easily throw into a suitcase for a weekend’s worth of outfit versatility!


Don’t forget that all packages from Paula & Chlo always come with our signature luxury wrapping and purple bows (plus a little extra surprise, too!)!

Happy shopping! Have you gotten a good start on your gifting?

Happy holiday season, Paula & Chlo fashionistas! As holiday shopping season officially begins this Friday (but we are getting an early start but giving you some special deals beginning Thursday at 6:00 p.m.!), we are excited to start buying gifts for those whom we love most.

One of the people that we love to shop for more than anyone else are our sweet mothers. Truly, our moms are all one of a kind, and we want to be able to buy her something that shows her just how much we care.

For the mom who spends all day on her feet…

If your mother is overworked from  anything from taking care of little ones, to her job, to cooking and helping out around the house, getting her something that makes her feel truly pampered is priceless.

Our choice for the overworked mama is the White + Warren cashmere slippers. These beauties are warm, soft and luxuriously lovely.  She’ll feel like she’s relaxing at a spa every day as long as she can slip these on when she gets home.

Plus, it comes in tons of different colors to make it one of the most perfect gifts for mom.

She’ll love thinking of you on those early morning workouts she sneaks in before her day starts.

For the mom who loves to visit…

If you and your mom don’t live super close to one another, traveling between homes can be really stressful. Make her life easier by gifting her with the perfect weekend travel bag. ac25472_-_ny__89458-1476070016-600-800

The Sondra Roberts Nylon travel bag is just what she needs to come and see you for a few days. It’s oversized, with three pockets, and is super lightweight, so she won’t put strain on herself when traveling.

For the Mom who loves the finer things in life

If your mom is a fan of the finer things in life, you have to gift her the Claudia Nichole Dress topper. It’s a classic, and you can’t go wrong the wide array of colors! She will love always looking chic while staying warm at the same time.

Add Sparkle into your wardrobe for the holiday season!


Accessorizing for holiday soirees is one of the most fun parts of the whole season. Choosing which earrings, necklaces, rings or bracelets to pop.

Here’s the top five pieces that are making our posts shine through the season.

  1. Kendra Scott Tricia Shoulder Duster Earrings

These dainty and sweet earrings are truly one of the cutest pairs we’ve ever had. Come on, that chandelier burst shape, the just-long-enough length that swings around you as you dance around, and the crystals catch the light for a fun, flirty and elegant vibe!

2. Kendra Scott Anastasia Necklace

We have our top two pieces together because they are the perfect compliment to one another!

3. Margo Morrison New York Baroque Pearl Drop

Nothing is as timeless as peals, but we especially love freshwater pearls for the holiday season. These statement pieces are the perfect winter accessory in their gleaming and shining white. We love pairing this simple freshwater pearl drop necklace with a gorgeous navy lace shift dress for Thanksgiving dinner. holiday season sparkle

4. Margo Morrison Multi Stone Necklace

There is no better piece for the holidays than the Margo Morrison Multi Stone necklace. It shows off every color and shade of the season in a variety of yellows, reds, greens and blues so that this is a piece you can wear… and wear… and wear again! It’s a great piece to wear with cashmere wraps and scarves to elevate your office to party look.

Holiday Season Trends to be Thankful For


Happy November, fashionistas!

We can’t believe another holiday season is here again. It feels like we blinked our eyes and the leaves are falling off the trees; there is a chill in the air and our emails are being bombarded with invitations to the chicest holiday parties.

 As we shop for the perfect looks for our holiday gatherings in the coming weeks– I can’t  believe the start of Friendsgiving is so soon!– there are so many holiday season trends to be thankful for. 

Here are a few of the holiday season trends we can’t wait to show off to all of our coming parties.

  1. Faux fur.

Faux fur had been a classic winter trend for years, but in the past few, it definitely went far down in popularity. But this trend is back and better than ever. We love a faux fur lined jacket to wear over some soft cashmere for a look that is always chic and always in style. We think faux fur pairs perfectly with this 360 Cashmere Sinn Sweater in black. It’s such a wearable look that you can repurpose from event to event!


2. Velvet

One of the top holiday statements that we always love is velvet. Velvet is a classic for the holiday season. We are accessorizing our favorite little black dress (like this one from LA Made… the penny turtleneck dress is a go-to!) with new clutches. These Rebecca Minkoff soft velvet clutches in soft berry red and in moon blue are absolutely perfect for every holiday event. Pair with gold jewelry like these precious Kendra Scott shoulder duster earrings for a look that will make you the envy of every event!rebecca-minkoff-velvet-leo-clutch-moon-blue-on-model-__21188-1477862846-1280-1280

3. Wide Pont Pants

Skinny jeans are a classic, but the pant to wear this season is not just the one that is slim, but one that balances out your whole look! Wide pants are the absolute height of chic right now. Wear with a heel or boot for the maximum effect. This trend is just now emerging, so you will be the most on-trend with this simple choice!

Lysee has proven themselves to be on top of the trends once again with these gorgeous wide leg pants. They are super comfy and wearable for every occasion– plus so versatile!holiday season trends
