Lykke Li + & Other Stories (Plus an American Store!)

The past few months, I have been patiently waiting for an e-mail from the British brand & Other Stories notifying me that their U.S. online store has opened.  In the early hours of this morning, I received the message for which I had eagerly been waiting.  (Their brick and mortar American venture will open Friday in […]

You Are What You Read: Books on Tees & Totes

I’m a woman of simple pleasures; aside from fashion, I enjoy things like ice cream, beer, and books.  Preferably all at the same time. Litographs combines at least two of those things. (Unfortunately, it’s not ice cream and beer–but hey, we can’t have everything). Honestly, when do I not want to read the entire story of […]

David Lynch Inspired Kenzo’s New Campaign

And weirdness ensued. Maybe you’re not one for surrealism–maybe you didn’t get Twin Peaks and Mulholland Drive just gave you the creeps–but if you can’t appreciate the eerie awesomeness that is Kenzo’s new ad campaign, you’re pretty much bonkers. The iconic filmmaker–who was the inspiration for the fall collection–designed the sets for Kenzo’s fall show, […]

Shop Local Pt. Deux: More L.A. Brands to Love

I’m finding more reasons to love the City of Angels (finally).

Prabal Gurung Resort 2015

Without a doubt, my favorite resort collection this year. A simple, bold color palette grounded in blue and red, and an interesting mix of print, jacquard, and color-blocking make Prabal Gurung’s resort collection, titled “Unconditional Love” and consisting of chunky knits to floor-length gowns, a practical yet eye-catching affair.  I’ve always had a soft spot […]

Uniquely You: LBDs, Personal Style, and Midnight in Paris

Maybe it’s the approach of summer and ridiculously high temps, but recently I’ve found myself being drawn to the effortless appeal of dresses. I’ve always been one for simplicity.  I like throwing on a dress and adding just a few of my own subtle details.  Though my personality may reflect otherwise, I can’t help but […]
