hued heels

My classic black Christian Louboutin pointy-toe stilettos have yet to fail me, but they'll be taking a breather for a bit while I rotate in some unexpectedly bold-hued heels this spring. Inspired by stylish European girls, who are stepping out in various rainbow colors, I'd like to take a leap (and punctuate my denim!) in any of these styles by Jimmy Choo, Sam Edelman, Steve Madden, Manolo Blahnik, and Gianvito Rossi.

slipping by

My friends know that I'll happily whirl through multiple outfit changes per day, but there are (rare!) times when I just want to stay in my pajamas from sunrise to the next. For these occasions, I'm now thinking I might try this: throwing on an easy, breezy (read: nightgown-like) slip dress with a structured blazer and casual sandals. It's a look that's both sexy and sharp at once--and best of all comfortable. I could easy slip by in these dresses from Mango (above), Sincerely Jules, The Reformation, Tibi and Alexander Wang.

the perfect red

There's no better magic than luscious red lips and there's no better proof than French model/designer Jeanne Damas' signature crimson pout. Her secret: Mixing various shades of red lipstick (MAC Viva Glam and Russian Red, to be exact) and applying it with her fingers over her lips for a more natural effect. I'm pulling off my own "natural" version right now with Beautycounter's new Red Color Intense, a bold, lip-plumping, super flattering scarlet-coral hue that's made from a safe plant-based formula. It has the best matte finish and goes from day to night. And I don't even need to use my fingers to make it happen!

paris theater

paris fashion week street style

While Hollywood served up only in-the-movies kind of glamour last night (Lupita Nyong! Jennifer Lawrence! Gal Gadot!), Paris offered its own compelling fashion line-up over the weekend, featuring stylish looks we can (thankfully) make a reality. The stars of Paris Fashion Week: French Vogue's editors, above, who wear easy-to-emulate outfits founded in everyday-ready and enduringly-chic staples. Currently, these staples include perfectly faded, straight-legged indigo like this, this and this, scrunchy neutral boots such as these and these, menswear-inspired blazers like this, this, and this, and shearling jackets. I like these by Topshop, Coach 1941, J.O.A. and Maje. Last but not least, a classic neutral-colored sweater is, bien sur, a must! I'd French out in these by J.Crew, Nude, Equipment and MiH Jeans.

veronica beard in LA

As you may know, I'm a huge fan of the New York-based clothing line Veronica Beard and its founders, Veronica Swanson Beard and Veronica Miele Beard (they are sisters in law!). Every season something new from the duo makes it into my weekly rotation. And this spring is no different, with the just-out check print top and skirt I'm wearing, above. As the Veronicas recently opened their first LA store, they asked me to share some of my favorite spots in the city. Read all about them here, plus shop my faves from their latest collection.
