Finding a ‘Unicorn’ in Huntington Library and Gardens

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, andContinue reading “Finding a ‘Unicorn’ in Huntington Library and Gardens”

High & Low Fashion For Fall

The black whole of academia, consumed with law papers, journalistic video packages, grad school apps–even medieval manuscripts has officially swallowed me whole. While I enjoy all of these scholarly activities, fashion is quite a necessarily retreat to stay inspired. My fashion therapy sessions have included curating my fall fashion closet. The key to a successfulContinue reading “High & Low Fashion For Fall”

Postcards From San Francisco

As far as I’m concerned, no time period is ever out of fashion. In fact, I sometimes live life through not only rose-tinted glasses—but sepia tinted ones too. That’s why in today’s post at the 20th Century Café in San Francisco, I tinted the photos to match what I personally see when walking through SanContinue reading “Postcards From San Francisco”

Keeping the Car Krischic

Even cars need to stay fashionable. And let me tell you, the Krischic brand does not stop at clothes. It’s a lifestyle. That’s why I gave my fabulous car, Maximus some Krischic accessories–or rather license plates. It makes driving around LA and road trips that much more enjoyable. Future Keeping it Krischic posts will beContinue reading “Keeping the Car Krischic”

The Classic Cape Look

Every girl needs a cape in her wardrobe. Why, you may ask? Because women are superheroes and need a fashionable way of showing it (shout out to the Women’s March today because women’s equality is very near and dear to my heart)! A cape in my mind represents an accomplished, put together woman who isContinue reading “The Classic Cape Look”

An Antique Autumn Lookbook

I feel like I cheat on the present with the past on a daily basis. The past is evocative. The past is romantic. It’s a hopeless love affair that I cannot seem to quit and frankly, refuse to. I want to keep reading classic literature. I want to keep watching period dramas (Downton Abbey andContinue reading “An Antique Autumn Lookbook”

Los Angeles Lookbook

Going abroad to London last year taught me about the importance of being a tourist in my own city. I am perfectly fine with getting all dolled up and making a DSLR camera the extension of my arm when going out and about in LA. No regrets. No shame. This city deserves to be photographed,Continue reading “Los Angeles Lookbook”

A Tea Fit For Royalty at the Palace Hotel

Since I was a little girl, I had this fascination with going to high tea. My mother used to take me to a local favorite called the English Rose Garden, where we would get all dolled up and indulge in delectable finger sandwiches and confections on a doily covered table. Since the teahouse closed down,Continue reading “A Tea Fit For Royalty at the Palace Hotel”

The Lady in Lavender

Tiny towns, hidden treasures. My hometown delights in the beauty of each season. February turns the Stanislaus County into a pink paradise with its endless orchards of blossoms. May and June are when one can pick plump blueberries directly under the toasty sun. And July, July is the lovely Lavender season. Whenever I’m on springContinue reading “The Lady in Lavender”

Library Lookbook: California State Library

A library touched by Midas. A labyrinth of literature, filled with rich wall murals and cozy leather chairs to gape at them from. It was as if this The California State Library did not even belong in California, but in the belly of an ancient pyramid. “I have always imagined that Paradise will be aContinue reading “Library Lookbook: California State Library”
