Coffee is my biggest vice! I think I could theoretically function without chocolate, pasta and pizza, but life without coffee seems completely meaningless:) I tried quitting coffee a few times mainly because it's a stimulant and because drinking too much ( which I certainly do ) is not great for your skin. There was even a brief period when I managed to stop drinking coffee completely, yet every time I passed by a coffee shop the smell of freshly brewed coffee seemed to call my name. Didn't get better with time, in fact, it felt like I missed coffee more with each passing day:) I "unquit" drinking coffee after an especially exhausting week and decided that perhaps some vices are ok in moderation. So, I've cut down considerably. One cup a day, no more! That's the new rule and so far I've managed to stick by it!

Though there are about a million reasons why I love San Francisco, as of our last trip there, SF weather goes right at the top of that list! After hot and humid LA summer, it felt so nice to spend a few days in what I would call, normal, human temperatures:) Incidentally, being able to wear some of my new fall favorites didn't hurt either:)
Now that we're back in blazing hot LA getting ready for Fashion Week craziness, I can't help but plan another trip there... The sooner, the better!:)

Finally found my perfect statement jacket I intend to wear with everything this Fall! So good with jeans and a simple little t-shirt, yet equally impressive over a flowy dress or skirt. Love that! Not a big fan of plain when it comes to outwear, I always look for pieces with special details. And this fringed perfection has them in abundance! The combination of suede, fringe and stitching details definitely gets my hear racing:) Have a feeling you're gonna be seeing quite a bit of it on this site! Hope you don't mind!

Up until recently, I could not have imagined a day when going out was no longer about highest heels possible, and yet, this day has arrived. Flats have officially became my footwear of choice!
I suppose this sudden change of heart is in large due to this Summer's soaring temperatures. Don't know about you guys, but comfort is pretty much my one and only concern in 100-degree weather! Or at least being as comfortable as I can possibly be:)
Yet, what may have started as a simple nod to practicality, with time turned into a complete and utter commitment to the way flats complete outfits in a very free-spirited, nonchalant kind of way. And sure, I am a little late to the "I LOVE FLATS" party! But I think considering what a huge high-heel addict I truly am, better late than never!:)

As much as I gush about my love of new things, the truth is, I really enjoy being in a committed relationship with more than a few things in my closet. Take this IRO blazer or Stuart Weitzman loafers for example, I've had them for about a year and a year and a half respectively and haven't looked back! Thinking about what it is that makes an item a time-tested favorite for me, I believe it's actually the combination of two things, i.e. looks and substance. Obviously when it comes to clothing or accessories they way they look is important, yet I find that how you feel when you wear that certain item plays an equally important part. If something doesn't feel good on, no matter how beautiful it is, it will inevitably end up in the back of your closet forgotten in favor of something a bit more comfortable. Well, at least that's how it is for me:) And so, when I find something that's beautiful inside and out ( and also possibly happens to work with 80-90% of everything I have in my closet ) I tend to hold on!:)

After spending the day sailing in San Diego recently, I realized two things. First, sail boat and I were made for each other and I could sail all day every day. In fact, I should probably make a sail boat my permanent home and wake up every morning to the sounds of waves and the smell of the ocean... Realistic? Probably not, but a girl can dream:)! Second, it is very difficult to achieve any degree of gracefulness ( since full on gingham skirt & top combo evokes exactly such a feeling ) while your husband is singing "I'm on the boat..." from Saturday Night Live. Yeah! That's my boy! Always serious:)! Despite his best efforts, we did manage to shoot a few presentable ones. So, I hope you enjoy:)!
