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. I cannot wait to see all of the artists and their wonderful creations. Hope the sun comes out too.

Summer Dressing: In the Fog

26 Jul

Today does not feel summery at all. In fact, the last couple weeks as a whole have been a bit chilly and very gray. Hence, even though it’s summer, my inspiration for today is for all those cold San Francisco girls out there….grays with a pop of color.

Weekend Dressing: Napa

23 Jul

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.

Bon Voyage!

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

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.
