It’s Turtleneck Szn!

cream turtleneck (similar) | leather jacket | black jeans (similar) | loafers (similar) | book IT’S TURTLENECK SZN! Leaves in New York are transforming into burnt orange, maroon, and subdued yellows. And I’m loving every minute of it. The air is no longer a sticky from the summer sun. The air is crisp. It is finally autumn (I think “autumn” sounds cooler than “fall”), which for my wardrobe, translates to TURTLENECK SZN. Will I ever say TURTLENECK SZN lowercase at a presumably softer volume? Probably not anytime soon. Last week, I got a package ...

Some of My Favorite Pieces

The end of summer is quickly approaching and by quickly, I mean that I will be back in New York in 3 days. In alignment with the end of this lovely season, I spent a night out on the town with my gal pal. We walked around the Mission, meandered into used bookstores, and ate tapas at Lólo in San Francisco. It was an evening that captured the essence of the summer: seemingly endless time, great food, and great company. We were also surrounded by one of our favorite settings, ...

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 ...
