Clémence Poésy for Pablo





I am crazy about these new photos of actress Clémence Poésy for French label, Pablo. I don’t know much about the capsule collection as my French is a bit rusty (understatement of the year…), but the photos sure do look lovely. Her tousled bob is my new, ultimate hair inspiration. Tomorrow I’m going to post about the trials and tribulations of growing out my pixie…very thrilling, stay tuned.

P.S. Tonight I am finishing book four of my 12 books in 12 weeks, What I Know For Sure by Oprah. She has long been one of my heroes (as my friend Brooke quipped on the phone today, “Oprah is the answer to everything”) and her essays do not disappoint. The gratitude section is my favorite thus far, talk about putting things in perspective. Anyway, hope you’ve also found a good page-turner. Keep me posted! xx

Quote of the Day



“I want to taste and glory in each day, and never be afraid to experience pain; and never shut myself up in a numb core of nonfeeling, or stop questioning and criticizing life and take the easy way out. To learn and think: to think and live; to live and learn: this always, with new insight, new understanding, and new love.”
-The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath


Sweater Weather


It’s in the mid-seventies here in California, but I’m dreaming of sweater weather. This editorial seemed too pretty not to share — the third look kills me. My grandmother recently returned from the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland and hasn’t stopped talking about the gorgeous, understated knits all her fellow theater-goers were wearing. “Nothing ostentatious about it, just beautiful, luxurious, hand-knit stuff. You should have seen the women, so understated, so chic…they wore them oversized, wrapped, belted…” she gushed. I’m trying to be grateful for the never-ending sunshine, but dear California, won’t you throw me even a hint of a cool autumn breeze…?

Chicago’s Public Hotel


I love a beautifully designed hotel (don’t we all?) and Chicago’s Public Hotel is among my stateside favorites. I’ve admittedly only been there for dinner and drinks (two nights in a row, shameless), but it was such a chic spot I’d have happily returned for a third. Famed hotelier Ian Schrager was behind the space’s renovation (formerly the Ambassador East hotel) which was completed in late 2011. Its legendary restaurant, The Pump Room, was a glittering hot spot frequented by the likes of Frank Sinatra and Judy Garland in its heyday. Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten has since reinterpreted the menu’s classics and the result is both decadent and delicious (prosciutto wrapped pork chops, scallops with a brown butter vinaigrette…). A highlight for design aficionados are the restaurant’s chandeliers — a series of steel and fiberglass orbs by Neidhardt that you bet your bottom dollar I instagrammed. The space aims to recapture “the glamour of the 30’s and 40’s with a modern twist,” and as far as I’m concerned, they’ve succeeded. I can’t wait to get back.
