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.

The Great Gatsby Clutch by…Kate Spade?!

22 Jul

Black White Yellow posted this clutch yesterday, as part of the Book of the Month Bags from Kate Spade. Aren’t they fun? I love how fashion is being influenced by literature, first with the book cover tees, like the Catcher In the Rye & Moby Dick versions below from Out of Print Clothing, and now with bags.

I’m sure I would get more use out of the tees, and I love that for each one purchased books are donated to the organization¬†Books For Africa. At the same time, what a cool purse-I love F. Scott Fitzgerald! Would you rock this clutch?

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.

Handmade Silver Rings on Etsy

7 Jul

I’ve been on a huge gold jewelry streak recently, but I also love silver. It’s inexpensive, easy to clean and there seems to be a lot more creativity with it (maybe due to the hardness of the metal). I am amazed by these pieces on Etsy and I may have to get the multi-faceted one by Arosha.

Hello Weekend!

18 Jun

There’s nothing better than a casual summer outfit for reading in the park or taking a leisurely stroll through San Francisco. Summer days here can be inconsistent-while one area is a hot, another may be cold, hence the need for long sleeves and/or layering. I love the comfort and ease of this outfit. I may have to purchase the whole lot!
