spanish rose


i adored my surprise european-themed date downtown! we dined on some wonderful italian food from vespaio, followed by woody allen's latest lovely film 'midnight in paris' and all the while i looked sort of like a spanish flamenco dancer. i may be euro-confused?

so it's about time for a new 'do, and i've been eyeing with envy this cute little bumble and bumble gem. i love my curls (and limited hair fuss) but the bangs and the shortness of the cut i'm afraid might overwhelm my super round face . . . what do you think? can i pull it off?




this summer i am all about sunshine and color, but of course with a little punch. this body-hugging white dress perfectly captures that feeling with its vibrant flashes of magenta and green across the front. it's like a modern painting almost; chic space-age cuteness.

woman about town


 a token night off from my current, incredible job led to a quiet dinner with the bf. korean food and gelato, mmmmmmm.

zara bag, elie tahari coat, vintage nude slip, pour la victoire heels

i love the slight pinkishness of those nude sling backs. so girly and sexy at the same time, they go with everything in my closet. it's like gaga says, you just can't go wrong with glossy, tight leather.

Hiatus . . .

over these next few weeks posts will be few and far between because i am working! but don't give up hope. fashion-ooosies will come back soon with a bang.


vacation's all i ever wanted


finally my signature photographer has arrived! in honor of such greatness, zach and i went s.u.p. boarding yesterday (which i strongly endorse. it's so peaceful). but i also had a sort of casual business meeting later in the day, with no time to change in between. luckily, this beautiful maxi dress exists! the light-weight creamy (and dreamy) vintage dress was perfect.

i wish sometimes i wore more accessories, but i think accessories often distract from the main point of awe: you (the one who is wearing the clothes!) so next time you're thinking of piling on ten bangles, maybe think again. keep it simple.

hot-air [balloon]


 summer is in the air, which is a polite way to say it's freakishly hot. so i only wear cottons, linens, silks, and other light fabrics to stand the heat. the pictured anthropologie skirt is actually made out of light organza one of my favorite fabrics, sort of like really fine paper, but the texture is bizarre: smooth and grainy (?). still the feel of the skirt only adds to its perfect voluminous shape and light green color. oh, so pretty . . . like flowers and sunshine!
