If you weren’t already familiar with The 2 Bandits, get ready. The San Francisco-based line by designer Tamar Wilder uses gorgeous geometric shapes with a Southwestern boho influence. Today, the line launches its Spring 2014 collection, inspired by the Northern Lights (it’s a natural electrical phenomenon that features streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky). “Many cultures believe that the Northern Lights are the appearance of “dancing souls”–Mother Nature at its raddest. I wanted to capture that in a way that could be enjoyed every day, from every angle,” explains Wider

You are having an Emmy party, right? If not, start planning! The folks over at The Savory alerted us to this handy drinking game and I couldn’t resist reposting. Of course, I put our own spin on it, so here’s my reco on how to look stylish as you sip (or gulp) your way through the night:
2. Slip on a pair of J. Crew Collection Valentina Calf Hair D’Orsay Pumps in Hazelnut Leopard or Dark Aubergine. I am obsessed with these. Obsessed, I tell you. They’re mostly backordered online right now but if you head to the store, they might have them! (Sale applies, of course.)
3. Get into an AllSaints Lewis Dress in Black. It’s flattering. It’s silk (read: comfortable and glam). It works day or night. What’s not to love?!?
Enjoy, Emmy lovers!
