August is a tough month. People are either away, enjoying their last bits of summer or they’re like me, cursing the continuing humidity and anxiously waiting for that first crimson leaf to emerge. Fall will forever be my favorite season mainly because I’m happiest when I can comfortably layer my clothing and can walk around without breaking a sweat.

There are few things more beautiful than autumn in New York; the streets become quieter, the trees transform into rainbows of oranges, reds, and yellows, people are pleasantly wrapped in light jackets or chunky knits, and there’s an unmatchable crispness in the air. I’ve already begun thinking of different outfits to wear once that first fall day really hits, and these are just a few items I wouldn’t mind adding to my roster.

  1. Topshop Silky Stripe Tee - $66
  2. Pamela Love Moon Sterling Silver Ring - $425
  3. Grace Choi Fur Collar - $21
  4. Stella McCartney Burgundy Trousers - $330
  5. Asos Wide Brim Fedora - $43.10
  6. Mother Denim Drama Jean - $148
  7. Victoria Horning ‘The Cluny’ Bag - $895
  8. Marc by Marc Jacobs Michaela Silk Dress - $498
  9. Forever21 Faceted Rhinestone Necklace - $12.80
  10. Rag & Bone Newbury Suede Bootie - $495
  11. Essie Nailpolish in Chinchilly & Wicked - both $8
  12. Style By Marina Shirt Dress - $78
  13. Mali Sabatasso Green Turquoise Ring - $275
  14. Alice by Temperley Fur Gilet - $410
  15. Vanessa Bruno Color Block Jumper - $324
  16. Modcloth Belt - $18


Defining Moments

Someone recently asked me to describe my personal style and I think I looked at them with a blank expression for about half a minute before mumbling out some long description that made me sound like a pretentious poop. Truth be told I don’t think I really have a style that can be categorized, I’m really a day-t0-day type of person. However, I’ve been putting a lot more thought into it and I’d like to think that my style is a melting pot of all the places that I love in the world - a little California girl, a little Parisian bourgeois, a little edgy New Yorker…no? Or perhaps a mix of the eras that I love - 1920s flapper meets 1940s sophistication meets 1960s hippie meets 1980s punk? Golly gosh I just don’t know. See how jumbled I am about this!?

In an effort to “define my style” I’ve pulled together some images that inspire my outfits on a day-to-day basis.

How would you define your style?

Style Icon: Jimi Hendrix

I’ve  been wanting to feature Jimi Hendrix as a style icon for months now, but didn’t want to do it until I felt I had a sufficient amount of rare and colored photographs (not easy to come by a la internet). But at last I’ve accumulated and created a collage worthy of posting and just in time for music festival season no less!

Jimi Hendrix’s wardrobe has to be among the top five wardrobes I’d like to raid. The jackets, the hats, the belts, the VESTS!, the bell bottoms, the jewelzzz, holy mackerel! I’d love to know how long it took him to get dressed for the day. Was it one of those situations where he huffed and puffed in front of the mirror or was it just a grab and go type of thing? Either way, there isn’t an outfit I found where he didn’t look awesome and he definitely makes me feel better about my extensive jacket collection. I mean really, is it possible to ever have enough jackets?! I think not. Now I just have to get my hands on one of those military/Sgt. Pepper jackets. Balmain S/S 2009, I’m looking at you.

Field of Dreams

April 13, 2011

As much as I love statement articles of clothing, I consider myself much more of an accessory girl. I’m most happy wearing a simple outfit that’s accented with bold accessories like an oversized handbag and a colorful scarf. Such was the case this past weekend when my Mom and I took a day trip to Connecticut to check out the house my family rents for the month of July. I put together a pretty minimalist outfit consisting of my favorite skinny black jeans, a white tank top, green vest and leather jacket, but jazzed up the whole look with an extra large scarf/poncho/blanket that is the perfect spring accessory for those cool breezes and chilly nights. Plus it can double as a picnic blanket! Hoody hoo!

Haute ☮ Hippie

Last week I had the pleasure of previewing the Haute Hippie F/W collection and fell madly, dangerously, wildly, passionately in LOVE with all of it. Not only have I never seen a collection that embodies my personality and style right down to the very last zipper but I’ve also never wanted an entire collection so badly in my life. No seriously, I walked out of the showroom feeling depressed because I don’t own the whole thing. It was a perfect combination of all my favorite styles and eras: 1970s hippie, 1920s flapper, bohemian chic, a little Stevie Nicks (yea, she gets her own category) all with a perfect twist of Southwestern/Native American flare. Gah! I want it all.


This week I got to enjoy even more Haute Hippie fabulousness at the cocktail party they held on the roof of their showroom. The space was completely tented with bits of the collection scattered about, all accented with lanterns, candles and incredible furniture (think ABC Home meets rock & roll Airstream trailer). It was a ton of fun and I loved getting to spend even more time with the collection, meet some of the designers and sip on delicious champagne and cocktails. After two weeks of Haute Hippie amazingness I have a feeling I’m going to go into withdrawals…
