front tuck


A friend of mine is heading to Copenhagen this afternoon for four days, prepped with a long list of Danish design to-do's, prayers to get into Noma, and a carry-on. Her packing mandate: no bulk! To keep the cold at bay, she packed layer-friendly, lighter-weight knits, knowing that all she has to do to look stylish throughout is...tuck in her sweater! These pics prove how this styling trick actually does a lot to effect a more polished, figure-flattering look. Sweaters I suggested she take (and also wear back at home) include this And Other Stories outfit-maker (or this one), this COS zip-up jumper, this Jonathan Simkhai braided cotton turtleneck, this scalloped-striped Madewell (on sale*!), and this C/Meo Collective ball-knit sweater. P.S. Tons of cold-weather cuties just hit the sale racks (through 11/17!) over at Nordstrom (like this, this and this). Take a look here.


mother of pearl


I like the all the pearls popping up on this winter's knits. In fact, I have my eye on more than one version--no surprise there, right?! Take a look at these by And Other Stories, H&M, Co (re-sale!), Chanel (re-sale!), Alexander Wang and 3.1 Phillip Lim and tell me which one you love best!

essentially yours


Who doesn't need another pair of perfect jeans in their life? Particularly if they boast the right-now, high-waist, leg-lengthening cut--and are on sale?! I do! I've been coveting these AGOLDE jeans, above, for a while now, and due to Shopbop's just-launched sale, I'm now yearning for additional stylish winter wearables like these sleek black Stuart Weitzman boots to go with my perfect jeans (or perhaps these knee-high Loeffler Randall suede boots?), the below faux fur coat by Alexa Chung, this crazy cute Love Shack Fancy fair isle cardigan, this J.O.A. leopard-print fleece, this Lioness double-breasted blazer, this Saloni super flattering, super gorgeous party dress and these Re/Done cargo pants that will work in my wardrobe forever. Score more here!

party people


This Monday morning has me in Saturday-night-party mode, having just nabbed the above fete-fab Self-Portrait dress at Net-A-Porter's first-ever Friends and Family Sale. The unprecedented 25% discount is a generous (and preemptive!) pre-Thanksgiving treat, tempting me to gobble up other desirables like this stunning Mes Demoisellles velvet gown, this sparkly Rixo dress, this fringed Nanushka coat, these cropped straight-leg Re/Done jeans, these Gianvito Rossi ankle boots, this Chan Luu multi-stone necklace, and these Adidas Originals everyday-chic sneakers. Eat it all up for yourself here!

well red


It was nearly 8PM when my friend and I sat down for dinner last night. She looked fresh and vibrant, as if she had been napping in a hammock all afternoon. Far from it, she had been working and on her feet since 7 in the morning. And she was still in her office clothes (which, for the record, were eminently stylish, particularly because of this Kule cardigan she had on). "How do you you look so radiant after such a long day?" I asked, incredulously. She promptly handed over a lipstick tube, given to her at 5PM by her work-around-the-clock, super-successful, beauty-tricks-up-her-sleeve best friend. The lipstick was Armie 33 by Tom Ford Beauty, a deep red matte shade that is said to make you look picture perfect, with blue undertones to make teeth look whiter. I swear, it did all that and then some! And now it will be my hard-working secret!

moda mia


In my calendar, this is the time of year--right before the holiday season kicks into full gear--when we justifiably self-gift! We take advantage of the pre-Thanksgiving sales and the discounts and buy things we've had our eye on for weeks and maybe once we receive these treats, we wrap them up to put under the tree eventually. Or not. So, let's take a look at Moda Operandi's private sale for starters, shall we? Specifically gifts that will keep on giving to you for years on end, such the Ulla Johnson beauty, above, or these perfect Slverlake high-rise straight-leg jeans, this party-ready Alexis shoulder-tie dress, this Madeline Thompson belted cardigan (soon to be under my tree!), and this gooooorgeous Dolce & Gabanna forever-chic embellished clutch! See all for yourself here!

smarty pants


And just like that it feels like winter in LA. Time for my cold-weather pants to shine! They're statement-making, for sure, and they have just right heft and look-twice details. Sweaters and simple button-down blouses are their best friends--and together they crank up my everyday style several notches. I'm especially excited for these by Nanushka (immediately below),  J.Crew (the gold and the snakeskin), croc-look Attico, above, Cynthia Rowley, last pic, and Ronny Kobo.

long faux fur coat street style

Le faux fur will fly again this season, but this time around the coats are longer and more elegant looking (and a bit old school, too!). J.Crew just came out with an ah-mazing version of the tiger-print coat, above--and it's currently 40% off! Also on sale is the Acne Studios faux fur-trimmed boucle stunner in the last image. (The shearling Coach, immediately below, is beautiful but not on sale!)  Other plush options include these by Mango, Stand Studio, H&M, and French Connection.
