on the fringe

My Monday morning just got a little sweeter thanks to this Zara discovery: a fringed Chanel-spirited jacket, perfect for layering under winter coats now and on its own this spring. I'd also team it with this, this, this, and this!

caped wonder

This pinktastic faux fur cape helps me forgive bitter Mr. Frost. It actually warms me up quite nicely!

anorak action

I have just one windbreaker in my closet and the only time it sees the light of day is when I go running in the rain--which in LA is almost never (minus the recent Pineapple Express!). But this spring, thanks to designers like Givenchy (pictured below), Sacai and Balenciaga, it seems I have more reasons/occasions to wear this windbreaker or even buy a new one, specifically the about-to-be-trendy kind that doesn't just run in the rain, but gets layered under chic coats and over sophisticated sweaters. The black, wear-with-everything H&M one, above, is a good place to start, but I am also loving these fresh, eye-catching styles from P.E. Nation, Nike, BINGKA, Adidas by Stella McCartney, and Columbia.

in the red

I've literally become attached to my new custom mini cross body bag--thanks to Clare Vivier! I find myself wearing it around the house with my (always misplaced) phone and lip gloss in it. It's super cute and lightweight. Clare has other ones like it, such as this and this. Oh, and my luscious sweater--a cheapie but goodie--can be found here.
