If you can’t be Oprah, it’s nice to at least be in charge of her magazine’s Instagram account for a day – and that’s what I’ll be doing tomorrow! I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the best spring jewelry and bags (like the floral REED Atlantique above), as well trying to channel my inner O with an inspirational book recommendation and a special surprise.
