DIY Straw Hat With Lola Hats

We were over the moon when our favorite milliner Lola Ehrlich, of Lola Hats, offered to show us how to DIY a feathered straw hat similar to one from her current collection of fabulous headwear. The Horchata, so aptly named, is literally a fiesta for your cabeza! And you’ll be surprised how simple it is to recreate it by simply injecting life into a plain straw hat with an assortment of colorful trim.


You’ll need:

  • a straw hat
  • 1 yard of 1/2″ rickrack
  • 1/2 yard of colored raffia
  • 1 1/2 yard of feather trim
  • tacky glue
  • an embroidery needle
  • an iron
  • a toothpick

Love Is Life

What happens when you give Natalie Joos exclusive access to Diane von Furstenberg‘s private archives? A most colorfully explosive photoshoot, at the iconic designer’s Connecticut estate, showcasing classic DVF prints, vintage wares, and current season favorites. I love the clashing mix of prints, which is motivating me to dig through some of my own DVF pieces that I’ve held onto through the years.




Sikes So Cal

We’re more than halfway through remodeling our home which means the fun tasks, like selecting finishes and picking out furniture, have finally begun! I’ve been busy gathering inspiration and couldn’t help but fall in love with interior designer Mark D. Sikes‘ Hollywood Hills home. I love the California sensibility with its crisp palette, blue and white accents, and the occassional accented wall.
