For some, Sunday brunch is an after-church affair. At Redbird, you go to church for brunch. Their ricotta blueberry pancakes are angelic, as soft and fluffy as heavenward clouds (As Mari’s post on this adventure will document, I even exclaimed “this is heaven” while consuming it, and the religious diction was quite purposeful). So, let […]

Wearing tweed with toes in the sand rather than in pumps. That is the evolution of fabric iconized by Chanel since its genesis in 1924. Chanel commissioned dresses and suits to be fashioned in the fabric from a Scottish factory which gave the look a more traditional Scottish countryside aesthetic, according to Elle. Since then, […]

Medieval legend has it that a woman of the purest heart could summon a unicorn if she was alone in the forest—that the rare beast would lay his head in her lap if her heart was true. I’d like to think that there are gems as rare as unicorns out there in today’s world, and […]

Inside the Armani Redbox Pop-up

Everyone has their ‘power’ color: a hue that when you wear it, it makes you feel as if you can take on the world fearlessly. For me, red is that color: it’s powerful, it’s sultry, it’s classic (I’ve written a previous ode to red before). So as you can imagine, stepping inside Giorgio Armani’s redbox […]

A Tour of My Bachelorette Pad in the City!

Sometimes, I feel like Carrie Bradshaw on the West Coast–wearing my Jeffrey Campbell’s instead of Manolo Blahnik’s editing video packages and writing articles, because let’s face it, if Carrie Bradshaw was placed in this generation, she would be a multimedia journalist too! Maybe a little different than Carrie is my fascination with history: as I […]

Brunch Babes: A Celebration of Female Friendships

Former United States Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright once said, “there is a special place in hell for women who do not help other women.” That is something that has definitely stuck with me. This past weekend was a reminder of the value–not a monetary, ‘what can these people do for me’ value,’ but one […]

Another 365 days have passed–each one of them filled with a myriad of memories, adventures and you guessed it, chic outfits. 2019 is days away which means it’s that time of the year where I reflect on the exciting experiences I was blessed with this past year: -I spent the final semester of my undergraduate […]

The Clothing Cafe

It’s only natural that someone who loves coffee as much as I do would wear an espresso-colored ensemble. Brown is a cheery alternative to black for fall and winter muted mode (fashion in French). The runway this past fall fashion week was all cocoa everything. Case in point: Burberry’s Spring 2019 Ready-to-Wear show. Mr. Tisci, […]

As a self-proclaimed bibliophile, I find myself traveling between the realities of an all-consuming novel or real life: going to grad school, covering/attending events, or hanging out with friends. The ideal situation for someone like me is when these two worlds collide–when a place is quite literally lined with literary motifs and I can go […]

Welcome to the Friday Favorites link up with your co-hosts Liz from Lizzie in Lace and Kristin from Keeping it Kris Chic! The emergence of peasant finery is definitely a thing.
