Christopher Kane

17 Jun

I am seriously impressed with Christopher Kane’s prints, which are like wearable art.  I love his use of clouds to reveal multiple dramatic colors. I especially dig his atomic t-shirt. What do you think?!

The playsuit, the jumper, the romper.

Summer Dressing

When I lived in New York, my wardrobe consisted mainly of black, gray and dark blues. Now that I’m back in California, I’m relishing wearing bright and cheerful colors again.

Hello Weekend!

If I had $1500 to spend now, this is what I’d buy. Philip Lim’s cashmere and silk sweater is soft and elegant with modern, cool details while the butterfly shorts are trendy with a retro silhouette. The Persol sunglasses fold in the center and stems and the Foley & Corinna purse is the perfect color for spring, summer and fall. Hello weekend!

Summer Style

10 May

When I think of summer dressing, I think of light and airy, with touches of gold and sea blues. I adore the breeziness of this Joie dress, especially when contrasted with this colorful Ikat bag. The best outfits tend to be a mix of high and low, vintage and new. (Note: “high” to me is a $250 dress. Anything couture I’ll probably just call “the unaffordable” or “the dream on”.)
