SUNDAY READING-24 hours with Valentino

I am riveted by Bazaar's '24 hours' series, and Valentino's account of his daily life is one of my new favorites. He tours his gardens with his six pugs (Mary, Maude, Milton, Monty, Molly, and Margot), dines alone at a table set with carefully selected china, and calls all of his closest friends at 12 am to wish them goodnight. Can't help but smile at that. Truly an extraordinary person.

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice I've been really into my ridiculous anime cartoonish hair extensions lately. Having never been one for subtlety I went with the longest I could get. This pair was sent to me by IrresistableMe and I am having way too much fun with them lately--thank you Sergio!


These 7 For All Mankind jeans are on sale right now y'all! Guest appearances by my Zara bustier and flats, as well as an amazing book of Hajime Sorayama prints found for me by a very dear friend.


Back on the streets of San Miguel, where I wanna be right now! It was the best vacation ever. Amazing how the city has grown recently.


This stunning cake was made by my sister Carol a few weeks back for my aunt's birthday. She says she is going to share a recipe and assembly instructions with us soon, by popular request!!


The Rider bag by Loeffler Randall is such a great example of perfect design. Looks great when you carry it as a purse, and it looks extra cute strapped to my Bianchi! As someone whose ride has two wheels instead of four, this is very essential to my everything Loeffler to be honest!


A morning record selection and a simple outfit. Tee by Stylenanda, vintage Levi's, and Isabel Marant sandals.

Patti Hansen-Style Icon






Patti Hansen is such a timeless style icon and one of the most beautiful women on the planet. I love perusing old photos of her and then looking at her now--truly an inspiration!

More adventures in denim from my vacation in Mexico. These Isabel Marant sandals are the best...the ones pictured were actually on loan from my mom. They look cute with everything! My mom wears hers with baggy boyfriend jeans and looks really cute. I was able to track down a pair of my own in brown on eBay, so now I don't have to be jeaous. Isabel Marant, you are the best at everything.

This sixties mink leopard tunic from Neiman Marcus was an amazing find at a junky antique store.

This sixties mink leopard tunic from Neiman Marcus was an amazing find at a junky antique store. What a dream! I don't know what has taken us so long to shoot it. These were taken on a busy cobblestone street in San Miguel de Allende. My mom had a blast using her favorite lens while we were there, I practically had to pry it out of her hands at times. Such a fun trip! Worn with a pair of Isabel Marant sandals.

On my way back home, I'm sorry to leave San Miguel behind! What an amazing trip...and luckily, it did not rain the whole time :)
