The Elevated Slip Dress

4 years ago I purchased an olive green silk slip dress with an asymmetric hem for $60 from H&M’s Conscious line. Since then it has been my go to frock for any and all occasions as soon as the warm weather hits. There is nothing in my wardrobe that makes me feel prettier and more like myself.

The Edit No. 6 / Part. 4 – Flower Power

I love seeing the first signs of spring around the city. The budding tulips in the park and cherry blossoms just starting to peek out in their fresh shades of pink. It marks the most noticeable changing of seasons and has a way of changing your perspective on the world around you. Our Edit today featuring the lovely Calu, is an ode to Earth month, a colorful send off into May, with an enduring trend that I’ve only come to love more and more: florals!

Malibu Farm’s Paella

Last week, we moved into our house.

Our very own home, with a big kitchen, plenty of space, a little garden, an atelier for me, a studio for Chris. A bathroom all to myself. Putting down roots.

Here I am, sitting on boxes full of my previous lives, and there’s only one thing I want: to take my time. Savor this big moment, listen to the birds singing, the schoolchildren playing in the distance, Lulu turning over in a ray of sun.

There’s also a guy screaming into his phone outside. Just a second, I’m going to go beat him up. Be right back.

Morning: I wash my face with Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser or Aesop Parsley Seed face wash. I am a huge believer in dewy, moisturized skin so depending on the season my products change. I use Chanel Hydra Beauty...
