MASCULINE NEUTRAL Living Room

I’ve been helping a friend with the remodel of his home, which is as rewarding for me as it is just plain fun. We ended up pairing light gray wood floors with his existing espresso kitchen cabinetry and white moldings, inserting new furniture pieces into the palette that are distinctive yet practical (…yes, a football

SUMMER LOVES Want/Need

A few must-haves for me this summer, including this crazy beautiful beach towel/wrap from Australia, and a kimono robe that can double as a cover-up. Who’s ready for sunny beach days and long summer nights? (Me me me) Samudra ‘Molokai Palm’ pouch / Free People ‘Losin It’ romper / Lauren Moshi ‘Taylor Lipstick Lip’ canvas

WORK & PLAY The Summer Romper

This season, I’m all about the romper and the jumpsuit, especially those that can do double-duty for work and play. So what could be more perfect than this black and white version by Bec & Bridge?  And don’t get me started on my latest obsesh,“flash tattoos” — metallic stick-on foil tattoos to add a little

#katemossxtopshop + Alexander Wang

I was so excited to get to bust out my Kate Moss for Topshop jumpsuit at the Gray Malin bash, but failed to get any photos of it! Thankfully event photographer Paige Jones snapped this pic of me and one of my besties in front of the step-and-repeat (fun!). I actually don’t wear a lot of

THE ART OF THE THANK YOU Editor’s Picks

There’s such value in the often forgotten handwritten thank you note. Taking five minutes out of your day to send off a quick one not only brightens the day of the recipient, but also allows you to step back and think beyond your immediate bubble. Reflecting on who has made an impact in your life

SULTRY SUMMER DRESSING with 3 Pieces

Happy Friday! The trio of the clutch, the dress and the sandal is a no-fail summer formula that I will be implementing as much as possible this season. I especially love integrating a graphic pop or tropical punch of color into it. Mix it with black for an instant night look. THE CLUTCH Alexander Wang

TREND TWIST Black Jumpsuit for Day

No surprise that I’m all about the black jumpsuit trend. But I recently bought the Kate Moss for Topshop black jumpsuit (as seen on Ms. Moss on this month’s Harper’s Bazaar cover) and was thinking I might try to style it for a daytime event, for a twist. To do so, I need some fab

SUMMER BEAUTY 7 Essentials

Happy Monday! Although last week was rather hot here in So Cal, the weekend felt so much like a cool summer breeze that it got me inspired for a little pre-season beauty prep. In addition to drinking a lot of water, I also know the importance of sun-protection and ultra-hydration, from my skin to my

SPRING OUTFIT Florals & Fringe

Last weekend I had the enormous honor of being invited to attend the 2nd annual RewardStyle Conference in Dallas…but talk about wardrobe pressure! When you’re hobnobbing with icons like Aimee Song and Sincerely Jules, you kinda have to BRING IT. Thankfully I had tastemakers Gaby and Gabrielle as my partners-in-crime for the weekend, and we had

SPRING TREND TO TRY The Graphic Print Dress

I’ve got a photo shoot next week at a “very L.A.” hotel, and have been looking for a graphic print dress to complete the look. Enter Clover Canyon‘s Spring 2014 collection. Inspired by the architecture and landscape of Southern California, the pieces celebrate mid-century modernists like Lautner and Eames, as well as contemporists like Frank

SPRING READY Closet Refresh

It could be the time change — or the fact that we had 80F weather here this weekend — but my brain has suddenly bloomed into spring mode. Here are some of the pieces I’ve got my eye on that will certainly give my closet a much-needed refresh for the season…

MY FIVE SCENTS Day & Night

This weekend I picked up Elizabeth & James’ first scent (LOVE!) and it got me thinking: I rotate between only a few signature scents. Depending on the time of year I may throw in a seasonal scent, but really, I have my go-to ol’ reliables that work it for me, day or night…

SPRING TREND TO TRY The White Shirtdress

Despite the current “cool down” here in So Cal, I’m already looking ahead to Spring essentials. And what better item for the crisp Spring air than a crisp white shirtdress? Dress it up with a blazer, or down with chunky sandals — any way you play it, it’s shaping up to be a must-have for

THE E LIST Pre-Spring Edition

I know it’s only January, but I’ve got spring on the mind. My palette is feeling a little 70′s Parisian, with black and blush, lace and leather, Diptyque, Guerlain, florals, fur and feminine touches…

GET MY LOOK Raw & Refined

I’m thrilled to announce I’m on Style Me Pretty in a two-part feature discussing biz/life bits  and giving a tour of my home! A few months ago, photographer Bryce Covey came by to shoot my house, and it was so fun to see how another photographer would capture new details. The above shot is one

PACKING LIST Art Basel Miami

I’m soooo excited…checking off another bucket list item to close out 2013 with my first trip to Art Basel Miami! I do admit, however, when I first decided to go, I had NO IDEA it was such a scene to be seen. Cue me last week scrambling to figure out what fabulous attire I could bring

PACKING LIST Thanksgiving in Napa

Off to Napa tomorrow for the Thanksgiving holiday, and I could not be more excited to relax, drink good wine, eat the best food in the world (yep, I said it), and take in the spectacular scenery. My musts (and I really am packing these items or similar!)…

WINTER STAPLES Get the Look: Casual Cool

I’ve been working on building up my winter wardrobe, tweeting and instagramming a few pieces along the way. So I thought I’d post a few of my “basics” to build upon, paying particular attention to details: snaps, zippers, snakeskin, tough + delicate touches that turn these staples into standouts…

GIVEAWAY! Bunny Williams Garbo Mirror

Happy Friday! I’m so excited to have this opportunity to give away an absolutely amazing item! 219 has generously offered up a Bunny Williams Garbo mirror (a $885 value!) for one lucky reader! Personally, shopping 219 gets me in some serious trouble because it is only filled with the most crush-worthy items around: brass, crystals,

PAPER GOODNESS Kelly Wearstler Stationery

OMG OMG OMG…I’ve died and gone to paper heaven. I can already tell I won’t be able to control myself because Kelly Wearstler’s new collection for Paperless Post is everything I could have wanted and more. Ever since I closed my little stationery company, I have been looking/waiting/longing for contemporary, edgy, artsy stationery, and thankfully,

RUNWAY TO REALWAY Dark Denim & Black Printed Skinnies

Not gonna lie, my jaw dropped (and is still) when first I laid eyes upon this backstage snapshot from the Versace Spring 2014 show. But since Versace is a tad out of my price range, I’m going to find any way possible to copy the catwalk with more affordable options…

ORGANIC GLAM Nate Berkus. Target. Domino.

Have you heard that Domino magazine is baaack?! I haven’t had a chance to pick up a hard copy just yet, but I have had the opportunity to browse the new dominomag.com…verdict = awesome! I especially heart this Manhattan apartment done up by Nate Berkus and fiancé Jeremiah Brent.  Black, white, brass, 1970′s details, fur and

ONE FALL DRESS Day or Night

Hope you all had a great weekend! Even though I spent Saturday at the beach, I am definitely starting to get into Fall wardrobe mode. I absolutely adore this comfie chic little number, and can already think up so many ways to style it up for day or night, casual or dressy, boho chic or
