Lauren and I both grew up by the beach in Southern California and yet somehow found our way into the fashion culture of New York City. You can imagine then why we love Peter Som’s spring collection which embodies surf culture with an urban, downtown attitude. Vintage cut bikinis and cropped tops were worn under blue tweed bombers, printed tuxedo jackets, and oversized coats. And what’s a surf inspired collection without some Bermuda shorts and neoprene thrown into the mix?
Whether you are layering a patterned rug on top of another patterned rug or mixing a pattern with a natural woven, sheepskin, or hide rug, the more the better. I have 6 rugs in my living room, all overlapping creating a boho patchwork-style carpet. I personally feel you can never have too many rugs. Wouldn’t you agree?
Last season, we were inspired to incorporate color into our lackluster beauty routine after seeing hot pink pouts come down the runway at DVF. This season, although we’re only 2 days into New York Fashion Week, the brightest of bright orange lips at Rag & Bone have stopped us in our tracks. Makeup pro Gucci Westman chose an almost neon matte orange to compliment the minimalist silhouettes and the pastel, white and black palette that dominated the collection. We dig it. Update: orange lips spotted at Prabal Gurung and Creatures Of The Wind. Is orange the new black?!
It’s 2014 and spring has sprung in New York City – what better way to anticipate the flowering season than through the eyes of Giovanna Randall, of Honor. The collection started with strong pointed collars contrasted against black ensembles and paired with intricate lace and floral prints. And it ended with barefoot models, with tiny flowers dotted in their ponytails, skipping joyfully down the runway in ethereal gowns embellished with ruffles and appliqués. Happy times.
This 22,000 square foot eco-friendly home, in Brentwood, California, belongs to none other than Gisele Bündchen and Tom Brady. Even with a koi-stocked moat, a lagoon-sized swimming pool and a grandiose loggia, the custom built mansion is tastefully done and has us dreaming of a version for ourselves – only ten times smaller.
