Momentary obsession: woven leather

deux lux

Lately I’ve been craving a Bottega Veneta bag, but you can’t even begin to think about buying one for less than four figures. This hobo style from Deux Lux is a dead ringer for the real thing.


huarache becomes more than a just-for-hippie-girls proposition when it’s rendered in black.

Thursday trifecta

The pineapple is a symbol of warmth and hospitality, but it’s also just so cute—almost cheeky—and right now rather ubiquitous. This necklace is almost too adorable.

I’d size up on this tank and wear it as a beach cover-up.

I have wanted pineapple notecards forever and this one is so damn elegant in the gold.

Cheap and chic of the week

white blazer

Nothing says go-ahead-and-try-to-cramp-my-unstoppable-style to the wilting heat of summer like a deathly crisp white blazer.

Top five of the day: Floral sneakers

loud and proud Liberty collab with Superga.

pure boost

I can’t begin to understand why the pop of neon makes sense here with the blood-red roses, but it totally does.

The Chuck Taylor high top is not typically my thing, but these are stupendous.

The color combo here kills it.

Appealingly subtle—and still, delightfully, Liberty.


Heads up

maxfield parrish

Posting is going to be light for the next couple of weeks, guys: I’m booking it up to the mountains  to be one with nature, do yoga, and finish up a special project—one that will be pretty exciting if it works out, and about which you will be the first to know. (Also: there’s a BIG hint somewhere in this post as to what that special project may be.)

Thursday trifecta: black and white tees

Just the perfect, graphic star tee.

Wisdom for the ages.

I am so totally falling down the Fornasetti rabbit hole.

The most boring thing I can not live without

Screen Shot 2015-05-28 at 9.48.52 AM

My Clare Vivier Sac Bretelle looks like a whole lot of nothing much, but therein lies the appeal: it’s thrillingly light on hardware, with no exterior pockets or zippers or —heaven forfend—logos other distractions. I can wear it with literally everything I own, and it is the perfect size for the essentials—phone, wallet, lipstick—on those days when I don’t have to carry my life (or at least my laptop) around with me.
