Can’t Get Enough: Striped Tee

Nothing says spring and summer quite like a nautical striped t-shirt! I have a lot of solids in my closet, so I love to break up the monotony with a graphic striped tee. Here are some of my favorite striped picks! Striped tee by Jcrew. A classic closet staple! I just bought one yesterday and […]

Fall in NYC!

My favorite season of the year has arrived and I couldn’t be more excited! Especially because I get to spend it in my favorite city of all time. The leaves actually change color here and the crisp, cool weather means I can bundle up with scarves and hats (my favorite)!! Fall also means anniversary dinners […]

Flying Kitties

To say that my husband and I were a little nervous to fly with our (three!) kitties across the country is an understatement. When we first found out about our big move from LA to NYC, figuring out how to transport the cats became our sole obsession: How would we do it? Would they be okay? Who’s […]

Packing Up, Moving Out

Goodbye LA. Goodbye apartment. Goodbye traffic. Goodbye Echo Park. Goodbye Taix. Goodbye Masa. Goodbye Silverlake Reservoir. Goodbye Runyon walks. Goodbye echo park lake. Goodbye bandmates. Goodbye family. Goodbye friends. Goodbye neighborhood walks. Goodbye Del Taco. Goodbye Orange County. Goodbye Newport Beach. Goodbye car. Goodbye Hollywood. Goodbye. Hello New York!

My friends, Annie & Eric, are having their first child this summer. To kick off the new addition to the Brown clan, my mom, some friends, and I put together a party to shower the little one (and the parents-to-be) with gifts! Annie is an animator and has an un-dying love for all things Disney […]

Mom & Pop: Echo Park

I plan to do a “best-of” series over the next few months in both LA and OC (and eventually in NYC)…focusing mainly on mom & pop shops, restaurants, and bars. I want to document my favorite things in and around the city and promote these local establishments so they continue to thrive for many years […]

Can’t Get Enough: Lace

Lace is one of my favorite materials to wear. I have so many lace things in my closet, it’s not even funny! I think it’s the whimsical feel of lace that draws me to it time and time again. My wedding dress (by Monique Lhuillier) was even made entirely of LACE! Whatever the reason for […]
