An Everlane Event

Tank top – Nordstrom / White skort – Aritzia / Grey cardigan – Zara / Black boots

Sometime last month, Alex, Kelly, and I stopped by an event at the Everlane offices to showcase some of upcoming season’s latest items. This was actually the first fashion event I’ve ever been to in San Francisco so it was pretty exciting, but also a little bit intimidating! It was kind of like all of the best dressed people in San Francisco were present at this event and we felt a little bit out of place. I like to think of Everlane as a sort of fashion start-up so it was still just interesting for me to be visiting another office in that space. We didn’t stick around for too long or mingle with very many people, but enjoyed the experience. After the event, we took advantage of the murals in The Mission and used them as our backdrops for our photographs before ducking into a wine bar for some late night sangria. Also, where I happen to be standing in this photo was completely unintentional! Only after did we realize that it looked like I was the one being “painted.”

What to Wear: Summer Weddings 2015

Self-Portrait Azalea Dress – $380

Well wedding season is already underway, but it’s never too late because if you’re like any girl I know then you’re always panicking last minute about what to wear. Or if you’re like me, you’ve planned out what you’re going to wear to a wedding months in advance, but feel you need another option at the last minute so you start the hunt again one weekend before the event. Whatever the case, it’s always good to have a variety in your closet for those emergencies.

I received my save the date from my favorite LA bf yesterday for her wedding next year and… that is exactly what is triggering this post! :) Should I start looking for a dress 9 months in advance for this wedding? Y/N?

Also, this is a good time to remind you all of a few things. Weddings are about the couple’s day. Do not wear white. Do not wear cream. Do not wear off white. If your dress is printed or patterned with a white base, don’t even wear that. There are so many dress options in this world and there’s no reason for you to be wearing anything resembling white on this day. A wedding is also not a time for you to take any fashion risks. Don’t wear anything that could pose as a wardrobe malfunction in any way shape or form.

Instead opt for soft prints and patterns and pastels. Gravitate towards romantic fabrics like ruffles, lace, and scalloped edges. Ladies – you know how to do this! Don’t be the one that messes it up because trust – wedding guests notice and they will talk about you.

Valentine’s Day Dresses For Your Perfect Evening

Happy February! Ever since I moved to California, I think I’ve loved February much more than when I lived in Seattle because unlike Seattle, February here kind of is like a little bit of a colder summer. There’s not much difference. Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I usually love asking all of my couple friends what they have planned. Some get to be very elaborate while others barely celebrate the holiday  or doing something really easy by telling one another what they want and getting exactly that. I haven’t celebrated Valentine’s Day that much, but if I had to pick an ideal date, it would just be dinner, dessert, and drinks! Last year, I was treated out to dinner and drinks at a nearby wine bar and that was just enough for me. It’s amazing how much pressure there can be on one holiday – gifts, plans, expectations, and lastly – what to wear! Red and pink are usual go-to’s, but I really love when people toss in blue and that’s why I’m highlighting this dress above from Urban Outfitters. Need more inspiration? Click the cut!

Zara: Brothers and Sisters

Zara has been doing the most adorable thing lately by publishing a photo series called Brothers and Sisters shot by Maria Lang. I can’t get enough of these photographs. I actually had a conversation while pouring over these with my co-workers today and we debated whether or not we wanted our future kids to be dressed like the kids in these photos or if we wanted our kids to be wearing t-shirts with cartoon characters and Disney princesses on them like we all did as children. In one way, I want my future kids to act like kids! And be kids themselves! Then you see these photos and all of that kind of goes out the door! I’m indifferent actually and I’m not anywhere near to making those types of decisions so we’ll decide what happens when that happens :)

The One Rule You Can’t Break at Weddings

I don’t know how many times I have to say this. You have one job and your job is to not wear white to a wedding. Why is it so hard for people to get this right? Don’t wear white. The bride wears white. You do not wear white. And while you’re at it, don’t wear cream or beige or off-white. Even if you accessorize with colorful pieces – a cardigan or a belt, you are still not allowed to wear white. We utilize every other color in the color scheme on this bride’s special day because we do not want to upstage the bride. I’m not saying you can’t stand out in your own way at all though and here’s how we can help you still do that without making this dreaded mistake that seems to happen every wedding I go to. A part of me wants to walk up to the person and just ask, “So… you wore white.” My bff Ashley on the other hand says that if anyone wears white to her wedding, they are immediately out. Good rule, Ash. We’re behind you on this one.

1. Have an amazing clutch to go with your dress. I love this one from Zara that’s only $79.90.

It’s that time of the year! For the first time ever, I’m attending a holiday party for my company and this time – it won’t be in some sketchy dive bar in the middle of nowhere. I can toss that horrible, ugly, and itchy Christmas sweater aside and put on my favorite new dress for the season. Of course, I don’t own one yet, but that’s why we’re on the hunt! I actually helped a co-worker of mine find her dress before I found one and it looks fabulous. Job well done. Now, here are some options for both you and I!

Zara Comes To Seattle

It’s happening. And it’s about time! Zara will be moving into Westlake Center in downtown Seattle at the end of 2013 or in early 2014.

For the last couple of years, I have had to make my trip up to Vancouver for my Zara fix and now I am so happy to announce that I no longer will have to. The store addition will be part of the shopping center’s remodel.
