This week gets off to an auspicious start, thanks to Net-A-Porter's highly-anticipated Friends and Family Sale, teeming with the most stylish fall pieces. Among my favorites: Ulla Johnson's gorgeous knits, above and below, these Joseph wide-legged leather trousers, this Nanushka ribbed knit bodysuit, this investment Givenchy, these faux leather Frankie Shop shorts, these light-wash Re/Done jeans, these See By Chloe booties, , and this Ganni wear-with-everything jacket. Soooo much more to see here!

 


 

friday night lights

 


I had my first dinner out at Nobu in Malibu in months last night--and the scene was quintessentially Nobu in Malibu: Cindy Crawford held court on the seaside deck, people glumly waited for a table, and paparazzi parked outside. Not only did I relish the baked crab rolls and artichoke salad, but also catching up with my girl friends, who shared a few tasty nuggets with me, like the provenance of the cute (Bottega-like) clutch for $34, below, (thank you, Molly!), the miracle-working, skin-transforming power of Sarah Chapman's overnight facial (here too), must-read books (The Vanishing Half, The Guest List, The End of Her) and the outfit-making $40 chain-link necklace, above. I shared some of my own treats, too, which I will offer to you: this amazing new-to-me line of sexy yet supportive sports bras that are around $38, these And Other Stories butt-flattering jeans, this standout fringed Cinq a Sept blazer, and these Missoni-spirited leggings. Happy weekend, all!

 


 

 

 
 

 

sea fit

 


Just a colorful reminder that exceptionally cute, light-up-your-day kind of dresses, like the Sea New York patchwork dress, above, and the Warm floral print, below, are up for last-day discount grabs at Shopbop! Other super pretty pick-me-ups: this leopard-print Sister Jane, this Lost + Wander shoulder-tie dress, and this faux-leather Staud. Shop it all here!

 


 

staud x new balance

 

 

In the event you missed out on Staud x New Balance's newest (and already sold-out) sneakers, pictured above, I did find an equally compelling substitute in the men's section, in multiple color options, no less! My faves are the white and silver and navy and red.

my sister's sparkle

 

 

One of the best things about traveling to NYC last week with my sis was having 24/7 access to her bag of baubles--specifically one pair of hoops that--shhhhhh!--I might still be wearing now, back in L.A. They look a lot like the golden goodies, above, so versatile yet not at all basic, plus very reasonably priced. Then there's the gold cuff and the pinkie ring, below, which she gave to me for my birthday! Everyone thought it was by Brent Neale, but it was actually a vintage find. Other sparkles she had on hand (for me!) looked like this chunky chain link bracelet, these bangles and this cool tangled choker!

My rusty packing skills had me checking in a huge suitcase to New York last week--and wearing the same three things over and over again. Doh! Next time, I'll wing with it just a few do-it-all pieces, like the Goop Label belted cardigan, above, (gorgeously photographed in Amagansett by my very own twin sis!!) or the vintage-spirited Frances Valentine cardigan, below, along with this hybrid jean jacket from Sandro. Okay, I'll also jam in these truly perfect Khaite jeans, this statement Misa blouse, these wear-with-everything Rag & Bone booties and this super cozy oversized H&M sweater.

 


 

turn over a new leaf

 

 

Finally, I see some signs that fall is actually flying by: Pumpkins! Marigold leaves! And all things cold-weather cool at Shopbop's annual Fall Sale! (Spend $200+, get 15% off, spend $500+, get 20% off, get the code here.) I LOVE Sandy Liang's faux fur pullover, above, which looks amazing on its own or layered under a maxi coat, plus these cozy cover-ups by Plush, Kule , We Wore What, and A.L.C. Also on tap: Jeans galore, cute knits (this and this) and THE boots I want! If you're looking for leather (who's not?!), try these perfect pants by Nanushka or Paige or this blazer by Anine Bing. Check it all out here. 

 


 

new york news

 

 

While New York may be devoid of its usual thronging tourists and teeming traffic right now, its universally-appealing style remains. And amen to that! It's currently manifest in distinctly cool trouser-like leather pants (not leggings of yore!) such as these by Goldsign and Nanushka (so many spotted last night at Bar Pitti!), statement-making face mask chains like this by Lele Sadoughi, Etsy and Bauble Bar (practical yet cute to go with these!); Carolyn Bessette-preppy jackets (this and this and this); uptown-to-downtown, made-for-walking ankle boots by Loeffler Randall and J.Crew; plus fancy hoodies like these by Loulou Studio, The Reformation and Levi's.

denim days

 

 

These dog days of social distancing has me in denim more than ever. But not your garden variety blues, of course. I recently snapped up these dark Citizens of Humanity charcoal jeans that are eminently flattering and stretchy-comfortable and these '90s-inspired but of-the-moment light-wash Goldsign jeans (similar to above, but more fitted), plus this cute Topshop dress, this Mayle denim skirt and the Sandro tweed-accented jean jacket below (on sale).

a solid case

 

 

A French friend of mine turned up at lunch yesterday at Le Bilboquet on a bike, with beautifully flushed cheeks and her phone slung on a chic cross-body gold link chain (see below). It reminded me of another stylish Parisian, above, a Vogue editor, who totes her phone all over town with a rope Casetify strap. (P.S. The adjustable strap comes in the coolest colors, with monogram options for the phone case. Yes and Yes!) Of course, I ordered one on the tuna tartar spot!
