Chanel Jungle

I love this top for summer, it does all the flirting for you-plus it has monkeys on it! Very festive. It's best worn paired with a longer skirt, like this Chanel one for day time. If you want to show off your legs for night, pair  with a high waisted mini and a lightweight blazer-it shows just the right amount of skin.

L'influence de Paris

After a meeting a meeting downtown for the magazine I work at, my boss shot these photos on Maiden Lane for Astonish's  Thread. It was a particularly gorgeous afternoon and I was feeling a bit thrilled to be wearing this outfit without all the extras-like a coat, tights, and scarf which are typically required for most SF days.
I love this outfit because it goes seamlessly from day to night. I found this skirt last winter at Top Shop in Chicago, it's faux leather and doubles equally well as a warm fall staple when paired with leather boots. These wedges are comfortable, and add instant summer time polish. I am currently in NYC, and loving the weather and fashion here!

Yesterday was the street style video shoot for the fashion magazine, Astonish, that I work at here in San Francisco. The two ladies above are very stylish friends of mine that were perfect for the video the concept was students on the streets of SF, a la Gossip Girl. I was host and had a great time filming and quizzing them on their favorite wardrobe pieces, designers and style inspiration. The video will be on the mags web site soon!

Blogger event

...after an evening surrounded by San Francisco fashion bloggers at a Tokyo Bay event honoring noteworthy blogger Laura from On the Racks (pics above) I got a little bit of the inspiration I've been trying to muster up to start a fashion blog. I want to create a blog around my personal style: classic, simple and always, perhaps a tad over dressed. I absolutely love dresses. But I believe playing dress up is one of the spices of life (I was the only kid up until 3rd grade that refused to wear pants).
