LABEL LUST :: FOR LOVE + LEMONS

It may be my constant craving these days for sunny climates, but my infatuation with the line For Love & Lemons suddenly has no bounds. I pretty much want every piece (totally disregarding the fact that I probably can’t wear half of them) in the collection… Their citron lace pieces are sold out practically everywhere – […]

    Beautiful pieces, now I’m obsessing! This is the perfect collections and dresses for my trip to Riviera Maya, especially that white stunner!

    What amazing inspiration! Victoria’s Secret has some off-the-shoulder dresses you may want to check out. Nothing like this beautiful editorial, but simple and stylish nonetheless…

SLIDE ON IN :: THE SPRING SANDAL TREND

This weekend over drinks, my girlfriends and I had a very deep conversation that stemmed from the irony of us having fought so hard for years to rid Seattle of its Birkenstock hippie stigma, only have the sandals make their inevitable (?) return to fashion this year. (Insert eye-roll here.)  The discussion quickly turned to the similar […]

    Aaaah I can’t deal! I really never liked those shoes…they just remind me of my high school boyfriend after basketball practice (which is an entirely appropriate time to wear them). But with those gorgeous outfits? seriously? Nooo. Haha I do however like the leather ones you liked too, but that’s about as far as I can imagine going! So funny to see this trend :)

    I’ve been wearing soccer slides post-work for over 25 years. While incredibly comfortable, I won’t be sporting them anywhere except the gym.

    This is like THE MAIN SUBJECT in fashion world these days – should we wear them with sock or without them? Some fasionistas agree with socks & high heels too.
    I have to tweet this, I’m dying to know what others think :)

VITAMIN C {WONDER} :: A CITRUS INSPIRED TABLETOP

coco+kelley for c. wonder // citrus inspired tabletop

Lately, I’ve been so inspired by the contrast of bright citrus colors against a backdrop of dramatic black – the pair seem like a perfect way to welcome in this slow-coming spring, don’t you think? So I teamed up with C. Wonder to create a tabletop that beckons diners to a brunch that’s sure to welcome […]

GET THE LOOK :: THE WHITE SHIRTDRESS

get-the-look---white-shirt-dress-for-spring

There aren’t many pieces in the closet more classic than the white button-up – that I think we can all agree on. But how are you all feeling about the white shirtdress? I remember seeing Leandra bravely rocking hers at fashion week last September and thinking… I love it. But, it takes some guts (and […]

    What timing with this post. This weekend I was watching an interview with an older actress who was wearing one of these with black nylons and all I could think was that it looked like she is missing her pants and when she stands up her undies will show!
    I think a belt would go a long way, however, I do like the one maneater is wearing, the bow is very cute and makes it look more like a dress.

      I’m totally with you – and black nylons would make it look even more strange in my opinion! They are tricky and need to be done really well. The problem with a belt, of course, is that it shortens an already short piece, but there are some nice, longer ones that look less like a large shirt and more like a purposeful dress, which is what I’d lean towards – especially if you’re on the taller side!

COOKING FOR A CROWD :: LEMON-SQUASH PANZANELLA with FIGS

Late summer is the absolute best time of the year for gorging on fresh produce. A quick lap around the farmers markets will offer anyone options for simple eating, allowing the vegetables and fruits to shine on their own. This salad does just that, and is perfect for feeding a crowd. Take advantage of the […]
