Gucci in Prague

  I walked into the Gucci store in Milan on Via Monte Napolitano and quickly responded to familiar Italian greetings as I made my way to the shoe collection. I originally went in there for these, I walked out of the store with a crisp black and white Gucci bag with these babies inside. While some people grow plants to test their level of responsibility and their ability to care for something, I bought myself some shoes. Maybe if I click my heels together in these, I'll end up back in Milan? Ironically, I bought ...

What to wear on Rodeo Drive

This is what I wore on a weekend trip to LA. I needed something that would accommodate a chic brunch atmosphere as well as compliment the plethora of walls we found to take photos in front of. I did in fact walk down Rodeo Drive in this so it is Rodeo Drive-approved and adheres to the title of this post. Fun fact: at the Paul Smith pink wall in LA, there is a security guard protecting the precious wall. He even told a poor girl to get her foot ...

Brunch and Ensemble: Friend of a Farmer

  In line for brunch at Friend of a Farmer, we spotted a rustic red-colored building laced with vines. A wide stairway and romantic gate led us to huge doors that I one day hope to use as I enter my home. It was 75 degrees in New York and I found a dress in my closet that resembles frayed denim that everyone so loves these days (not excluding myself). I haven’t discussed this particular bag on my blog much, but it is the Coach Ace Satchel and it fits ...

How to Style a Trench Coat

I typically associate trench coats with the way so many female characters have taken them off to reveal very little underneath. I, however, took a more sartorial approach to the trench coat. After finding a trench (ON SALE!) that crossed off all the requirements on my list (I really did have a list), it dawned on me that I want to wear this piece for the entirety of my existence. In all honesty, you don’t really need to wear anything underneath--it’s THAT great. // However, to emphasize the perfection of the coat, I ...

Dressing for Spring in the Middle of Winter

  Last winter was one of the coldest New York winters for decades. This winter took a break (Global Warming??) and like the groundhog predicted, spring has sprung. This past weekend, temperatures rose over 60 degrees. The sun beat down on my leather jacket, which made me question my choice of outerwear as I walked to a Sunday brunch stop. If I didn’t leave my favorite black jeans and grey sweater at a friend’s place, I probably would have opted to wear those. Needless to say, I would have cooked into ...

A New York Winter Day

It has snowed twice in New York City. One day was a blizzard and the other day didn’t even qualify for cancelled classes. I almost feel bad when I am back home and relatives and friends ask how I am surviving an East Coast winter because, well, I’m doing pretty well and some days the temperature here in New York was warmer than in San Francisco (for that, I apologize). That said, my winter coat came in the mail the other day and I have worn it almost exclusively despite ...
