Hit List

11.08.2013

The Life Styled - Burberry - Cara Delevingne - 121 Regent StreetI don’t know about you, but I am already twitching at the thought of how the rest of this year is going to scream by. Right now I’m trying my darndest to use my time wisely and finish up all those outstanding projects so I can enjoy the holidays when they suddenly sneak up on me. And yes – I do say that every year and never quite manage to get it together without some level of panic around the second week of December. This week I’ve had the pleasure of working on a ridiculously fun styling project that involves picking out a lot of clothing for tiny humans. The shoes are so little, I can’t even deal with it. One thing that has been surprising me as a non mom is how much cute stuff is out there for baby boys, especially at Zara. Chunky cardigans, velcro high tops, and suspenders. Teeny tiny suspenders! Maybe dressing a little boy wouldn’t be as hard as I thought…

Since this opened one block away from my place on Monday, I’m permanently in big trouble. Huge.

Lately I’m trying to do this three times a week and as obnoxious as this may sound, it really is addicting in the best way! Their cute workout clothes are a draw too, not gonna lie.

Every year when the holidays roll around, I love to treat myself to a pair of these or these. Affordable, comfy, and the best part is that they come in three lengths!

This wine label translation is hilarious. Especially the one about Papyrus.

Did you catch this intriguing short film/30 Seconds to Mars music video about LA that Jared Leto directed?

I’ve realized you really can never have too much of these.

Friday Links

10.18.2013

The Life Styled - Cara Delevingne - Vogue Australia - October 2013It’s Friday y’all and I’m here with a few links for you to peruse to {hopefully} help make this day go a little faster. I’ve got a lootttt of work to finish before the week is allowed to be over (eek!), but I’m perfectly happy sipping a pumpkin spice latte and covering ground on some challenging yet inspiring projects before I can kick back for the weekend. Speaking of inspiring, how stunning are these photos of Cara looking all Elizabethan this month’s issue of Vogue Australia? I’d like to make one of these Aesa crowns an everyday staple in my wardrobe. Practical, right?

The Life Styled - Cara Delevingne - Vogue Australia - October 2013

One of my favorite jewelry designers - Luv AJ - is now making leather jackets and such - coming in December. Ahhh!

The trailer for Wes Anderson’s new film came out and it looks just as stunning as all the rest.

When this week’s Shopbop sale started, I felt an immediate need to order these and these. BUT Stuart Weitzman was an exclusion (blast!), which was reason enough to be a good girl and refrain.

So far I’ve only been to 11 of these restaurants but I’m determined to try all of them!

We’ve been working through some of Emmy’s emotional baggage with the most amazing dog trainers at The Good Dog. Emmy’s like a different dog after only one week of bootcamp and I can’t say enough good things about them!

This and this are our new weeknight staples. Both are so healthy, quick, tasty, and easily customizable.

I guess I’m late to the party on this a cappella group who are making me feel nostalgic for my music geek days in high school. But it’s probably safe to say that they’re cooler than I was.

L’Eclaireur, 10 Rue Boissy d’Anglas, Paris, France

Lately I’ve been daydreaming about being back in Paris, strolling the streets and shopping the amazing boutiques. While I was there I had the pleasure of checking out L’Eclaireur, a super hip place with multiple locations throughout Paris filled with an array of eclectic designer pieces. I am dying to go back but until then, luckily I can browse their collection of treasures on farfetch.com along with those from other top boutiques all over Europe and the U.S. There’s something so dreamy about having something pretty snail mailed to you from a quaint European storefront, rather than some warehouse. I’ve got my eye on just a few modest things….

Soft & Rough

08.24.2011

If you saw our Valley of the Dolls inspired post, you already know we’re suckers for overdramatic winged liner, soft pink lips and big hair. But the spread in the September issue of W Magazine with Kristen Stewart really nails it with a fresh take on the 60′s troubled bombshell look featuring oversized fuzzy sweaters, funky jewelry, strong brows, with a touch of rocker edge.

The Ruffled Shop

08.23.2011

It’s here! The Ruffled Blog has opened up a shop for all things bridal fashion. It features gorgeous vintage inspired wedding dresses from Fancy, bridesmaids frocks by one of my very favorite bridesmaids dress designers - Sarah Seven, Tessa Kim hair accessories, and jewelry from Wendy Mink.

I had the pleasure of styling the looks for the shop, alongside the amazingly talented Elizabeth Messina, who captured the beauty of the pieces with her undeniable guru caliber talent. The Santa Barbara Historical Museum provided the perfect backdrop for what turned out to be a stunning shoot.

Visit the shop here. Read more about the project on Ruffled, and see the rest of the editorials on Snippet and InkGreen Wedding Shoes, and Inspired by This.

August is in full swing. Summer is still around with plenty of pool days left, but who’s excited for a little change in color inspiration? Enjoy!

Thanks to the Alexander McQueen Spring 2011 woven hairstyle, now all things with a weave are constantly catching my eye. Oh how I long for a great pair of woven platform wedges, some chunky baskets, and this chevron cuff.

Summer Breaking

08.03.2011

Aaaannnnd we’re back. July really kicked our busy butts so we just had to take a little break. We hope you didn’t miss us too much, and you have spent your usual blog reading time sipping lemonade on a porch somewhere, wearing your oldest cutoffs which you haven’t removed for days.

But a whole new Fall is fast approaching with all sorts of style addictions on the horizon, so believe you us… we are back in the saddle and ready to ride.
