Performance of the Day

It has been a full week and I’m still not at all over this song. I actually watched two performances of her doing this in the same week and considered posting both, but didn’t want to get too crazy with it. May the rest of her album be full of bops like this one.

Park Winters Wedding

Dress – Nordstrom / Clutch – Urban Outfitters / Boots – Something Navy

We’ve spent some time talking about Sherwin’s wedding earlier this year, but this is the first time I’m revealing what I wore! When considering a wedding guest dress, I always try to have the couple in mind. It’s fun to get to choose elements of what I think they’re style is and try to re-create that in an outfit. In all honesty though, this dress isn’t quite Anji or Sherwin’s aesthetic at all. Their engagement photos were taken in Everlane and was totally minimalistic.

Some trends that I wanted to incorporate into a wedding outfit this year did include polka dots or pink. This dress just happened to have both. I always wear very standard heels to weddings, but I wanted to try and push it by trying to wear the white boots that I love. I’m not sure if I pulled it off, but I seemed to think that they were working the day of. Since the wedding was early spring, the sleeves were appropriate. In general, it’s a bit of a conservative dress, but the slit adds a little something.

The wedding took place at Park Winters, which has been one of my favorite venues to date. It was perfectly separated into distinct areas for the event: ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dance party. Everything flowed so easily and it was such a beautiful evening and celebration.

Zac Posen Shuts Down Brand

In a report released today, Zac Posen is shutting down the brand he created in 2001 and ceasing operations.

“The board made a difficult decision,” Posen said to WWD. “We were in a sale process and we ran out of time.”

A number of stars loved and admired Posen’s designs often wearing them for any and every red carpet event. In addition to being a judge on Project Runway, he even had his own documentary, “House of Z.”

Zac Posen also recently even showed during the last fashion week this fall. It’s unclear what will be in store for him next and while the brand has had its ups and downs over the last few years, we hope that this won’t be the end for Zac and his designs.

Song of the Day

When I first heard a snippet of Dua Lipa’s new song “Don’t Start Now,” I wasn’t so sure. Disco isn’t really our thing. But then you hear the song in its entirety and that changes everything. Dua Lipa has returned and I cannot wait to hear the rest of her album following her debut.

The Closet: October 2019

[Everlane – The Day Boot] – $225

After spending last week in Seattle and being hit hard with a burst of cold, I couldn’t wait to get back to California. Upon arrival, we celebrated a week that was high 70’s and 80’s and I felt blessed. While it feels a little abnormal to still be wearing dresses and walking out the door without a jacket, it is something I’m not going to take for granted. Now that we’ve hit the weekend, the transition from summer to fall is getting real. As I type, I’m perched up right next to my space heater and cozied up in my warmest wool sweater. There are so many pieces that are essential for fall that you just couldn’t get away with in summer. Here are my favorites for the month of October!
