After meeting Gaby Basora last year, it was plain to see that her exuberance and zest for life translates into her coveted collections for Tucker. She simply kills it season after season with playful prints in the form of dresses, midi skirts, blouses and jumpsuits – most all of which I want to incorporate into my wardrobe come fall!
With Cinco de Mayo just around the corner, my deep adoration for Mexico has been called to mind. It’s been three years since I was last there, when my husband and I got married in San Miguel de Allende, and I’m just jonesing to go back. Perhaps a relaxing trip to the beach this time, at the ever luxurious Las Ventanas in Los Cabos? This breathtaking Mexican-Mediterranean ‘window to paradise’ has been on the top of my travel wish list for some time . . . and you can see why.
Clare Elsaesser‘s paintings are inspired by daydreams and the formidable nature outside her window. Clare and her equally talented artist husband Kai Samuels-Davis live in the tiny hillside town of Jenner, California, where the Russian River meets the Pacific Ocean – I mean, who wouldn’t be inspired there? All of her work is quite beautiful but it’s her flower girls in particular that really make me smile. And you might want to check out SF Girl By Bay, where Victoria is having a giveaway of Clare’s work till the 30th.
