LA Eliana

It might be clear by now that we recently spent some time in LA. Ah, LA…. One of the people high on my list to hang out with was Eliana Rodriguez. With a style that feels both unique and approachable, she’s a lady after my own heart. Her good taste is unsurprising though, she’s a current creative director and a former designer at American Apparel. With a clear voice, strong aesthetic, poise, humor, and kindness (shall I go on?), she’s a modern woman to her core. Such a pleasure to have her on the site today, straight from her dreamy Beachwood Canyon garden…

California Cool with Heidi Merrick

If you were here on Friday, it’s likely you saw the story we published at Heidi Merrick’s perfectly interesting (and very beautiful) Silver Lake home. Seriously, dream house. Today we’re back with Heidi’s downtown Los Angeles store that has both nods to her home and an abundance of individuality as an extension of her modern and elegant brand. Ok, we’ll let Heidi take it from here.

Ease Meets West

With the change of weather (that’s happening quite early in New York this year) from summer into fall, I’m thinking a lot about what I want to wear this season. It’s becoming more simple as every year passes and the idea of a more utilitarian style that fits seamlessly into my life and is allowing me to ultimately buy less but better things—this is really top of mind. I’m beginning to appreciate more and more a certain ease in getting dressed in the morning. It doesn’t mean I’m not having fun with my clothes—I actually enjoy finding different ways to wear my staples—but it’s making shopping and getting dressed more enjoyable because I don’t feel quite as lost as years past.

Morning: I have to preface this by saying that I am VERY low maintenance and most of the products I use are from goodie bags. Funny but true! In the morning, I shower and wake up my face with Lava Magik scrub, and...

Go to the Spa

Yesterday, while everyone was at the fashion shows, I decided to go to the Korean spa with my friend Heidi. In other words, it was the opposite of a fashion show. No phones, no clothes, no ego.
