Friday’s golden hour vibes in Marina del Rey. So addicted to this top already!
Totally in love with our newest top at ARE YOU AM I – the Delphine crop. This is the culmination of almost a year’s worth of fittings and iterations – it was one of the first pieces that I envisioned creating when I began working on the line but it really had to be perfect to work. In between a pullover and a blouse and a sort of smock, it’s somehow the coolest thing to throw on over a dress or to pair with denim and leather. The fit is oversized and effortless, and it’s sewn with just two pieces of silk linen stacked onto each other, rendering the fit clean and the look minimal. The texture play when worn with the Zillah is my new favorite thing.
Our newest leather skirt is now available! I’m so in love with the embossed studs on this leather that I just had to do two versions – the macro (for more of an edge) and the micro (a little more subtle but still transfixing). They fit like a glove and feel so amazing to run your hands down that you’ll have to force yourself to try not to for social reasons. Shop the Kell skirt here.

Are there enough silver dresses in the world? Like, really really not. I’ve always thought that. Silver didn’t make sense to do the first run of the Zillah dresses but now that we’ve had such a great response to them, it felt right to actually realize this dream. This dress is three layers worth of fairiness, two in white silk to skim the body and one in silver lurex to channel most PM shots of ’90s Kate Moss. Such a fun piece to shoot in Paris against all the dramatic architecture. The dress will be available this month on the site, stay caught up with release info on the ARE YOU AM I IG page!

Fresh off the plane and facing a whole day of needing to stay awake, a walk from the Peninsula to the beautiful shops at Avenue Montaigne seemed like a good idea. Deliriously is such a good way to shop! I got this coat at COS a couple months ago and love the dramatic length and tie belt. So simple and chic in navy, and it let me get away with my white tshirt and leather mini uniform.

Spending last weekend in Paris was a little bit of a last minute decision but I’m so glad to have made it out! I melodramatically brought all my heavy outerwear and pocket warmers and we ended up luxuriating in LA-style March warmth. Which allowed me to wear this stunning dress from Chloé without a jacket for most of Sunday which was cool because it was a six month long dream of mine come true to have it on my body. The spring collection is so chill fairy in a field vibe that it couldn’t be more perfect. Love!
4040 Locust Industrial Storage Rack
One of my katrillion projects is creating a vanity area in one of the smaller rooms in our house. I haven’t found the perfect desk, or mirror, or much of anything yet BUT I fell in love with this industrial rack by 4040 Locust and it’s even more stunning in person. I had fun sliding some of my favorite pieces old and new into position. Imagine me hopping around madly with a Céline lacquered flatform in one hand and some gypsy water in the other and yeah that was the vibe. Such a cool piece!
I just got back to LA after a rainy drive back (thank you for always driving Chris!) after spending the weekend at beautiful sprawling Rancho Valencia. It’s been such a strangely long time since I was last in San Diego and getting to visit my old favorite spots and stay at this most luxurious of ranchos was so exactly my mood. The fact that it was raining semi-nonstop took a couple activity options off the agenda but also just made having all breakfasts fireside more obligatory. We had such a relaxing, cozy time – if you can at all make it here you should. Seriously, the yoga studio has a legit moat. Thank you to the super friendly Rancho Valencia crew for having us !

I was beyond late to NYFW this season due to having fittings and meetings for AYAI but was really happy to make the last few days and still get to see some of my favorite designers show. That said, putting this post together is making me curl up a little more intensely in my blanket in my 76 degree living room. Such cold air particles. I genuinely think this trip marked my first experience with the Fahrenheit reading of three and marked the appearance of a new ability to go through 8 pocket warmers a day. Thank you to the Mondrian Soho for taking care of me and being close to enough places that I didn’t really need to venture that far from a small area. Can’t wait to be back in NY when it’s more habitable!
