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,Continue reading “The Clothing Cafe”

How to Style a T-shirt As an Overdresser

She exists. She’s the dreamer, but also the doer. She shows up and hopes to make a statement in the process. She’s in all of us–that girl who likes to dress up and be equal parts intelligence and elegance. That girl is innate in my personal identity. And that is why the majority of theContinue reading “How to Style a T-shirt As an Overdresser”

Krischic at Castello di Armorosa

Stepped inside a fairytale, a 10 year old medieval castle made of breathtaking stonework…filled with colorful medieval frescoes depicting age of old–kings, knights, noble crests. I was imaginitively raptured to a century where lords and ladies sat around a table and drank their wine from goblets while drinking in the melodies of minstrels–the setting ofContinue reading “Krischic at Castello di Armorosa”

The second you pull up to the hotel, you are treated like a celebrity from a bygone era since the entrance is literallyContinue reading “All Things Vintage and Faux Fur”

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”

The Reagan Residence

God has an interesting sense of timing, as my interview with Peggy Grande, former Executive Assistant to the late Ronald Reagan happened to fall on July 6. As America knows, this is the birthday of the former first lady Nancy Reagan, who passed away exactly four months prior to the interview. This was also theContinue reading “The Reagan Residence”
