Summer Dressing

2 Aug

I love this silk print dress by DKNY. The print is organic yet graphic, colorful yet muted. It’s perfectly balanced, and looks quite flattering too, especially with the proper accessories.

Weekend Dressing

This weekend I will be doing a variety of activities around art & design, first going to the Levi’s Workshop on Valencia on Friday to see Stefan Sagmeister speak, followed by the Renegade Craft Fair on Saturday.

Weekend Dressing: Napa

These last few weeks have had some pretty chilly days, so my husband and I are skipping the city for Napa this weekend for some much needed sunshine. We picked the perfect weekend in that there seems to be early-morning construction all over our neighborhood this weekend.

Fuchsia has always been one of my favorite colors. It’s a more sophisticated hue of pink, a bit more punk and a little less girly, plus it works in all seasons. And here is my new fuchsia-infused dream summer outfit…

Weekend Dressing

16 Jul

Amidst the rich, jewel-toned and neon ’80s and ’90s colors that abound, nudes & pastels are slowly making a comeback as well. I love the subtlety of pale colors and sheer fabrics, especially in soft pink and grey. There is something both ethereal and sexy about this trend, don’t you think?

Summer Dressing

12 Jul

One of my girlfriends was wearing these great skinny cargo pants from J Brand the other day, and I couldn’t get over how stylish they look. Unlike most cargos with bulky unflattering pockets, they are unique and slimming and are a great break from jeans. The utilitarian silhouette pairs well with a floaty tank top, cage sandals and simple jewelry.

Weekend Dressing

9 Jul

The main thing I’ll be doing this weekend is watching the World Cup. I cannot believe how intense the 2010 games have been with the tied matches and horrible ref calls, and though I’ll be happy to go back to sleeping in after Sunday, I’ll be sad that the games are over for another four years.

Omni Peace 2025 Tee, $33 at Delias.
