farm to closet



I don't think I've ever left Farmshop empty-handed. The always-bustling gourmet market, bakery and restaurant in Brentwood serves up the yummiest California-inspired fare from avocado hummus (my go-to) to gluten-free chocolate chip cookies (my 12-year-old's favorite). But on Monday I was served up some unexpected sartorial treats, thanks to a few friends I bumped into there. First, there was the new scrumptious sherpa jacket from Pilcro, above, that my Aspen-based pal introduced me to. I love its sweater-meets-jacket, indoor/outdoor vibe. She was also sporting these new sleek sunnies (seemingly universally flattering!) from Bottega Veneta. Then I spotted my hard-working CEO friend, who was running in for lunch between meetings, clutching her cell phone with its cute and clever Anya Hindmarch sticker pouch. Yes, this little card holder has a sticky back so you can attach it to your phone! (Genius stocking stuffer, too!) She also happened to be wearing the most everyday-perfect pair of wide leg jeans--another addition to my wardrobe! Thanks, friends!

 


 

lounge around

 

Tis the season to dress up! I'm even cranking up my comfy lounge-wear (read: former lockdown looks) along the lines of the above from The Reformation. Amazing what a good blazer and boots can do for you, right? I also love these versatile and gift-perfect knit sets from Splendid, English Factory, Cos, and J.Crew.

filippa hagg

 

I woke up this Monday morning still feeling sloth-like from Thanksgiving's tryptophan but then, fortunately, my Instagram feed served up an invigorating remedy in the form of Filippa Hagg's inspirational on-the-go style and requisite coffee-in-hand! The Paris-based creative director defines her distinctly sleek look as "Frandinavian," a mix of French-chic signatures and bold Scandinavian statement pieces. Her masterfully-curated combo is exactly what my carpe-diem wardrobe needs, starting with the Toteme scarf jacket, above, and the luxe shearling toggle jacket, below (this one similar and less $)*, the oversize zip-up sweater (below), classic black Prada loafers,  Frankie Shop's faux leather trench coat, Converse high-tops, and Toteme's side-slit tunic sweater (last pic). 

*P.S. The Cyber Monday sale at Shopbop is pretty epic. Just saying...

friday feels


 

For me, Black Friday is the day I can justify buying things impulsively. Because they're on crazy sale! Hence the purchase of this statement Hunza G bikini, which should fit once I metabolize all of last night's pumpkin pie! I'm also about to pull the trigger on this Creme de la Mer moisturizer (almost never on sale!) and this Sea patchwork jacket.

best of both worlds



You can't tell from this picture but I am actually wearing denim shorts with this pretty oversized turtleneck. I love this best-of-both-worlds kind of outfit (thank you, LA!), and what's more, the new turtleneck was just snapped up at Banana Republic Factory, where all their must-wear-this-minute gems are 60% off through 11/27. Plus, get an extra 15% off your purchase! For example, I also discovered this under $100 vegan shearling lined coat, inspired by Carolyn Murphy, below! Plus, this sherpa shacket, this long teddy coat, this knit coat, and this ribbed hoodie. Sponsored by Banana Republic Factory. LTK #ad



 

sale away


 

Can't stop, won't stop sale shopping! I think I'm compensating for all the Covid clothes still stuck in my everyday rotation. I'm pressing wardrobe refresh with the Sea New York  blouse, above, on sale. Other scores gleaned from the Thanksgiving sales: this Cult Gaia dress, these Isabel Marant Etoile socks (great stocking stuffer, BTW), these super versatile wide-leg leather trousers by Rohe and this Something Navy shearling coat, below. If money grew on trees, I'd also snap up this hooded Love Shack Fancy sweater, these perfectly-cut Slvrlake jeans, these Jimmy Choo suede ankle boots, and this statement Sandro coatigan! Happy Thanksgiving!

 


 

gobble good

 


Not only is it the Gobbler Bowl today at my son's school, the annual and always exciting pre-Thanksgiving flag football game, but it's also the day when Net-a-Porter and Shopbop preempt Black Friday with their epic sales, in which I gobble up gifts for all my peeps (this, this and this)--and, okay, a few for myself, starting with the 40%-percent-off Ulla Johnson sweater, above. (P.S. If you are a fan of Ulla Johnson, you must check out sale situation at Neiman Marcus, featuring the latest and greatest styles for less!) I'm also seriously tempted to indulge myself at My Theresa, offering primo designer pieces at super discounts, like this gorgeous forever knit from The Row, this Dolce & Gabanna print dress and these classic Gianvito Rossi boots. Gobble, gobble!

well red



There I was minding my own business, running up the West Side Highway the other day, sweat dripping down my face, when my twin sister's best friend stopped me in my tracks. She was leisurely strolling downtown--and decked-out chic! There was her impeccable trench coat! The most flattering  wide-leg jeans! The new amazing Gucci bag, below! And the denouement: a pair of red patent leather Prada sandals! They were unpredictable (particularly for this time of year) and yet so thoroughly spot-on. And perfectly, strikingly red! I literally ran home to find my own pair and succeeded at Farfetch. Plus, I discovered all kinds other random goodies there on sale like this epic Nanushka jacket, this Missoni bikini, and this Polo Ralph Lauren checked sweater!









 


california cool

 


I'm loving how LA girls are pairing this season's knit dresses with high-knee boots. The look is polished yet laid back-Cali--one I could pull it off in NYC or anywhere else for that matter. So, I looked around some exceptionally good dresses and found these flattering options from Glamorous, Paige, Lioness, Proenza Schouler and Loulou Studio. And I got these easy-on-the-wallet pair of boots to go with!

notable knits

 


Seems like the universe really wants me to add to my sweater stock, because I keep stumbling across so many excellent options at excellent prices! A few options I want to share with you include the Mango bandana knit, above, with the cute detachable scarf, the ribbed H&M, below, this cropped Sokie turtleneck, this Free People tunic sweater, and this cut-out Astr the Label.
