On Saturday, don’t miss My Little Pop Up, especially if you have littles!
As the weather gets colder and I think about wearing cozier clothing, I continue my quest to find clothes that feel like sweatpants, but that I’m not embarrassed to wear to the grocery store.
Bassike’s fall 2016 lookbook pretty much captures what I’m going for, right down to the shoes. In these days of the teen and pre-schooler, I’m all about elevated sweats—or just throwing on a shearling jacket over anything and feeling A-OK about whatever happens to be underneath. See more of my favorites below, and check out the rest of the fall 2016 lookbook here! [Read more…]
I don’t know about you but I still haven’t had enough of the resort collections, especially this one from Temperley.
Yes, pretty much every designer is doing the Gucci seventies thing with copious embroidery, lace, eyelet, etc. PLEASE CONTINUE, I say! 🙂 And that velvet-black jumpsuit is the perfect foil to anchor it all. In my closet, all of you. [Read more…]
I’ve imagined a glamorous foggy beach photo shoot ever since I moved to the coast. I had this story in mind: A mother and daughter are on their way to a formal wedding. They stop at the beach to run around and let the little girl get some energy out en route from the church to the reception. They frolic in the sand, kicking off their shoes, laughing and accomplishing some meaningful bonding.
Well, my wish finally came true, and it was nothing like that. It was freezing! SO COLD. We couldn’t actually stay in the sand for more than a few minutes because the wind was nuts. So I had to come up with another story:
Virtually every jacket (and there are lots of them) in the Sacai resort 2017 collection brings back memories of a jacket I’ve owned and loved in the past. One in particular that I lament to this day was a khaki pullover with a substantial hood. I found it at a vintage store in college, and the fabric was worn in to soft perfection. The third jacket from the bottom evoked its memory. I still dream of finding it’s doppleganger at a second hand store.
I also love the riff on the Baja hoodie—plus it’s comforting to see so many jackets in this collection because it is the typically foggy, chilly summer here on the coast in Pacifica. [Read more…]
When I spied this Erica Tanov dress, I was praying I would love it as much when I tried it on on as I did on the hanger. In a rare case, I loved it even more.
The piece is a collaboration between Erica and textile artist Sierra Reading, who hand-dyed the fabric using irregular growths from oak trees called oak galls.* It’s 100% silk, and the long sleeves and billowing silhouette make it the easing thing in your closet to throw on without concern for anything at all and look amazing. If you pair a dress like that with flat booties like I did, you’ll complete the “chicest jammies ever” feeling. It even has pockets for maximum cool-pose options.
I’m super into these photos by Brad Wittke… I suggested this area called Mussel Rock in Pacifica, right down the road from where we live, not realizing the place was going off with world class exhibitions of nature. He even managed to catch a paraglider in a couple of the shots! Happy Tuesday everyone! [Read more…]
Last month was my birthday, as well as my main man Bob Dylan’s. It all went by in a blur, evidenced, for example, by the fact that in my memory, my birthday cake exhibited some sort of heart and star motif, but in reality it was covered in delicious flowers (and also by the fact that I’m writing a post about my May birthday in June). I do believe I recall accurately that it was delicious, and I had a lovely time celebrating with my parents.
When I was invited to “An Evening With India Hicks,” I immediately wanted to attend because I had a vague idea that she was somehow related to the royal family, that she was fabulous and stylish, and that an evening with her should not be missed. [Read more…]

I love clothes, accessories, shoes, jewelry. I love acquiring new versions of all of the above. But I would trade new things any day for an amazing experience. A catered brunch with my closest friends like the one IfOnly hosted for us this past weekend is the perfect example. Actually enjoying time with friends instead of stressing over food preparation is a luxury more valuable than any pair of shoes. Pretty much any pair of shoes. OK maybe not these.
But seriously, I feel so fortunate to have wonderful friends to spend a Sunday afternoon with, and this was a really special group. [Read more…]
Perhaps you’ve already seen these photos on my social media feeds, but I wanted to gather them all in one place for safe keeping and to thank Lost in SF, a local news and entertainment site published both in English and French, for featuring me, along with the beautiful and talented artist Chloe Fleury, in their article “Used is the New New.” I love the shots Sabrina Bot captured, and these are some of my favorite pieces of clothing.
