Happy New Year from actual paradise Costa Rica! Thank you for your support, wit, curiosity, and love this year and I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings!

So lucky to have freakish 80 degree weather in LA this week cause something about the tshirt by itself option is such a relief. One of the angles I took when shopping the H&M collection with just the slightest bit of foaming at the mouth was buying every white tshirt in sight, including ones that were targeted at other genders. Cut and opacity-wise, there was a lot going on that was perfect. The rolled sleeve version is super ideal for dressing down this main line structured piece along with all things Goyard that came away from Paris fashion week with me.
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to my beloved readers!
Pandora approached me to put together some bracelets from their Essence collection to represent the women in my life – I love the idea of individually selecting charms that represent key values. I’ve always admired the relationship that my mom has with her sisters and tried my best to put together a combination of pieces to honor it. The way that she approaches life has been continually inspiring to me – she taught me that believing that anything is possible to the point of being irrational is basically the only way. She is the strongest person I know and I love being smart enough now to appreciate her relentless and heavily emoji sprinkled texts. I chose strength, confidence, and wisdom – all the things I hope she successfully taught me. The perfect gift for someone in your life who needs to know how much you appreciate them.

You know it’s LA cause one element is totally off. Coldest foot day.
So I think this is me being festive? Fun little corduroy skirt with a ’70s scholastic vibe that I hopefully almost eradicated with part of my leather arsenal.

“Freezing” LA is the best – the streets are all to yourself and the sunshine is as relentless as ever. I’ve spent the past few days in these jeans which I came across during a closet rummage initiated by a search for something other than a leather miniskirt. Anine Bing got that elusive slouchy/skinny factor just right. Worn with a giant fluff cloud and the faithful olive wedges.

Not sure I’ve ever worn this many colors that mice come in at once before. I dressed this structured Isabel skirt down with one of my favorite thrift store finds of all time. Cocoon blankets over summer outfits = perfect for LA’s take on winter.
(Zara cropped sweater, vintage Levi’s, Chloé nude sandals, Goyard tote, Ray-ban Outsiders Oversized Wayfarers)
Some of the best jeans are the ones you meant to turn into one more pair of microscopic shorts but didn’t. I found these at Jet Rag on La Brea earlier this year and just got around to chopping them off to what I think is a length that’s gonna work for me. Worn with a current season super fuzzy Zara sweater and my endlessly useful Chloé sandals.

A huge coat on top of a simple slipdress is so comfortable and luxurious – I wore this in New York a couple weeks ago on the day of the Victoria’s Secret show. Made a slight effort to offset the wispiness factor with the most basic Marant belt I’ve had for a couple years. FYI the most comfortable heels of the season – Phillip Lim’s Vincent Mules and these very ideal over the knee boots.
