take a bow

I'm still obsessed with The Row's bow-trimmed mules, above, and it seems so are other designers, as they're cranking out their own knotted versions for next spring, including these knockouts by Ancient Greek Sandals, Mango, Prada, and Rebecca Minkoff. Love them all!

doing doen


The easiest way to pick out an Eastside-LA dwelling hipster is by her requisite flowy Doen dress. The cult LA-label has a lockdown on this breezy, bohemian, Silver Lake-cool look, and its just launched spring collection has me even more obsessed. I just snapped up the floaty floral frock, above. I'd also like to slip in to this romantic ruffled blouse, this cropped cardigan, and this flirty smocked dress. Check out the entire collection here.

all in the family

This model looks exactly like my niece, which, of course, makes this dress completely up my (DNA) alley. What's more: it's sexy, flattering, and statement-y, all at $105! Might I add it's called the Gelina, which is also one of my favorite restaurants in LA. All of this adds up to one thing: it must be mine! Other compelling (and wallet-friendly) statements I'd also love to make mine: this Need twist skirt, this Farrow striped blouse, this Moon River tunic sweater, these J.Crew faux fur slides, these Shein embroidered shorts, and this bohemian Free People blouse.

lunch time

At a lovely luncheon yesterday hosted by Netaporter for my friend/clothing designer Mary Alice Haney (see more pics here), I encountered some happy surprises. First, I bumped into a high school classmate with whom I played on the tennis team and haven't seen since; I discovered the luminous, universally flattering magic that is Olio E Osso lip/cheek balm, thanks to a friend; I learned that my new yet compact Eddie Borgo bag is big enough for a day's outing; and lastly that my old Saks Potts sweater can still dazzle a discerning crowd. (I threw it over this Haney dress that's now on sale.) Today the lunch keeps on giving as I came across this statement-making turquiose H&M dress, which looks very similar to the head-turning, way more expensive one my table mate was wearing yesterday. Made my Friday!

(almost) back to work

For the last few days, I've been battling a chest cold and binge-watching movies (I, Tonya; Lady Bird; The Shape of Water). In other words, I've been a couch potato. All I want now is to feel fit and healthy--and, of course, stylish while I'm at it. So, I've snapped up a few things that will up my game once I'm back on track, starting with the cute Beach Riot sports bra (above), which can double as a paddle boarding-ready bikini top. Other winning, feel-good  pieces I'd like: this tie-front Live The Process top, these bandana print leggings by The Upside, this Alo sports bra, these lace-up Free People leggings, and these LNDR sweatpants.

on stripe

I have my fair share of stripes in my wardrobe, but nothing like this cute bow-neck t-shirt that is both work and play-friendly. Other new and improved stripes that will up my game (read: are not redundant) include these by Kule (my sis has and loves! Also this, below!), Perfect Moment, Hellesy, J.Crew (on sale!), La Ligne, Rye, and Balenciaga.

turn up the heat

To ease my winter doldrums, I'm adding some extra (chic) layers to my everyday uniform, starting with an extra long statement making scarf. Zara has a bunch of options, but I prefer these by Rag & Bone, Asos (and this one, too!), Free People, and Burberry. I'd also like to give my wintry wardrobe an energizing boost with these warm and fuzzies by Ulla Johnson, Pixie Market, Gap, Gucci, and Velvet

snow chic

With a "bomb cyclone" winter storm threatening to blast the east coast tomorrow, I'd like to hunker down in this lavishingly warm faux fur coat.
