There are lots of clothes in my closet that need the right moment: an evening out, a tropical getaway, or with my kids at home. Then there are others that just work all the time. My new favorite round-the-clock staples come from ALIGNE, a London-based, female-run brand that's cleverly focused on versatile yet statement-making silhouettes, all at accessible prices. Take the denim and cotton dress, above, that's both pulled-together yet downright easy, or the strapless linen top ($135), below, that will work with a pair of denim cut-off shorts or crisp linen trousers. The summer collection is currently teeming with take-me-anywhere options, such as the full denim skirt ($135), the pinstriped belted blazer ($269) and the denim mini dress ($145). See all for yourself right here!

dive in


My first call of the morning was with one of my oldest friends, whom I met on the diving board line at La Ronde Beach Club in Westhampton Beach when I was 10 years old. After firming up our plans in the Hamptons this weekend--a cocktail party and dinner in town on Friday night, afternoon beach hang on Saturday, and a local band show, consisting of more childhood friends on Sunday night--we moved on to attire. I informed her that I was packing the new and very fun Loulou Studio skirt, above, along with some tried-and-true pieces, like the print Alemais, below, now on sale. I also suggested she hit Net-a-Porter's Memorial Day Sale, for more summer-is-here looks, including this fringed Farm Rio, this unerringly chic Mara Hoffman, this stunning Zimmermann, and this very East Hampton-sleek Tove dress. Also worth checking out is My Theresa's 50% off sale here! Long holiday weekend, here we come!


For the Hamptons this Memorial Day weekend, my carry-on will now be a tight squeeze, thanks to a few larger-than-life purchases from Shopbop's just-launched designer sale, including the JW Anderson peplum top, above, and the statement-making asymmetrical dress, below. Also stunning: this frilled mini Zimmermann, this Ulla Johnson print blouse and flowy floral cover-up, this party-hearty La Double J one-shoulder dress, and these Sam Edelman strappy sandals. P.S. SO much Isabel Marant, Ulla and Zimmermann greatness. plus jeans on sale!

dead ahead dressing


Dead & Co's opening night at The Sphere in Las Vegas marked the official start of my event-dressing season. The show was spectacular, by the way, but, IMHO, so was my dress, above! (Details in my latest Substack!) With lots more special occasions in store, I rounded up some show-stoppers to wear, including the lace-trimmed Sea dress, below, in both white and black (love the idea of tossing an oversized blazer or chunky sweater over it at some point, too), the floaty Tory Burch, and the striped Reiss.



gap x doen


The much-anticipated Gap x Doen collection is out--and I want it all. Especially the jean jacket, above, which has button-cuffed balloon sleeves. I've been wearing mine like a shirt! I also love the about-to-sell-out denim dress, below, rendered in a quintessential figure-flattering Doen silhouette. Shop the collection here before it's all gone.

fast forward


A flight to Sydney, Australia right now would land me 17 hours--and 2 fashion seasons--ahead of Los Angeles time. Yes, that's right, it's nearly winter down under! And Vogue's Australian Fashion Week coverage is my time-travel ticket to my future wardrobe. What to keep/store/buy? Lace-trimmed slip skirts (this and this), baggy khakis (these! I have these!), big (Bottega) and small woven bags and statement-making vests (Dorothee SchumacherPosse and Tove). Plus, trust me on this, an outfit-making brooch! Glad we still have months of summer ahead!

memorial thursday


All the primo pieces that are never on sale are very much on sale at 24S, including the summer-ready Prada basket tote, above, and the Prada slingbacks, below. (Save 20% off full price on orders $500+ with the code MAY20), along with this Chloe tote, this lace Zimmermann dress, this Khaite belt, this Miu Miu bag, these glittery Aquazurra sandals, and this woven Elleme bag. Shop the rarely discounted assortment here!

slip on


My perpetual wanderlust has spawned a growing stash of hotel slippers in my closet, all picked and packed to pass as The Row's $990 Frances house slippers, above. While none of them is crafted from fine silk terry or with soled with leather, they'll do--for now. That being said, I did buy myself a great dupe for The Row's already sold-out summer shoe--the Mara Flat--by Jeffrey Campbell, below, which believe it or not, is also nearly out of stock! They're hotel slipper-comfy and partner nicely with my new go-to white carpenter jeans from Pistola! Highly recommend!
