Snapped these at a neat little alcove at my friend's place yesterday...a real secret garden!!

I just got these metallic brocade print jeans...they are Seven For All Mankind. Shiny pants seem to really get people's attention, I have been chased down the street to be asked about them. Worn with a StyleNanda faux fur top and Martin Margiela patent leather sandals.

My mom and I are inseparable shopping buddies...and we are not very good at keeping secrets! We did some Mother's Day shopping together yesterday...but if I had a magic genie to grant me any gifts I could think of for my mom, I would choose these!

1. IKEA Kid's Circus Tent
This would be for the dogs. Kim and Shelly would totally love a circus tent. Kim would definitely be the ring leader, though.

2. Yves Saint Laurent Studded Easy Rock Bag
My mom is a very practical, and this no-nonsense bag is right up her alley. It's a little blingy, but tough too! 

3. Carven Linen and Patent-Leather Slingback Heels
Wow, how precious are these?? Very sassy and I love the big black bow in the back. My mom needs these shoes!

4. Teddy Bear Tote
My mom is very whimsical and loves toys...this bag has actual tiny teddy bears on the handles of the tote!!

5. Greatest Mom Chihuahua T-shirt
Because she is the greatest mom! My mom needs a crazy dog lady shirt in her life too.

6. Weston Printed Silk Journal
Every single morning, my mom calls me and gives me an overwhelmingly detailed play-by-play of the dogs' walks and breakfast time. Maybe she can start journaling the Dog Diaries ;)

7. Current/Elliot ikat printed jeans
Lately my mom has been wearing her printed jeans non-stop, and she loves Current/Elliot! These would be perfect for her--she has a bit of a uniform. You can always find her in cute skinny jeans, an oversize men's shirt, and some strappy shoes. Oh, and she always has a zip-lock bag hanging out of her back pocket in case she has to walk the dogs. Hahaha! That's my mom for you.

8. Miu Miu cotton-canvas printed mini bucket bag
This is screaming my mom's name! She loves little bags and elephants.

9. Chloe pony hair and leather ankle boots
Holy mother of god!! These are holy grail shoes!! I know my mom would love them too.

10. Meredith Wendell braided belt
We love everything Meredith Wendell and this belt would be so cute with some white skinnies!

11. Balmain large Greta cuff
This is tough stuff, totally my mom's style! She can be quite a tomboy.


Happy Mother's Day to everyone and their moms! I hope you all have a wonderful day together tomorrow!

I picked up these jeans at Free People yesterday...I've been on the hunt for a pair like this for a long time! I know I have a denim hoarding problem...these are seriously great. Worn with a Style Nanda blouse, my trusty Lucky belt, and some Alaia gladiator heels.

I wrote a story on my mother's style over at MyHabit's The Fix...it is almost Mother's Day after all!

I also curated a sale at MyHabit full of amazing things--go check it out, they're selling out!

I thought I had lost my Country Life t-shirt during the move to my new place, but was happily reunited with it when I was digging around some boxes last week. Phew!! Wore it to dinner last night with my red satin Rugby skinny parachute pants, a thrifted moto jacket, and Giuseppe Zanotti buckle heels. The sunglasses are Ray Ban aviators.

3 Easy Hairstyles, and the Kérastase Diary winners!


I had so much fun watching the Kérastase Diary contest...now that its over I wanted to show a few of the new styles I tried for mine ;) I got so inspired looking at everyone else's entries!


I started with the Kérastase Cristalliste Bain and Lait Cristal, allowed my hair to air-dry, and finished with the Lumiére Liquide (for the extra shine). I love the new Cristalliste formula, as it doesn't weigh down my hair. I used a Sultra Bombshell one inch clipless curling iron, wrapping small sections of hair OVER (rather than UNDER) the curling iron for more of a forties wave, brushed through with a soft bristle brush, and pinned one side away from my face.


This was a no-brainer. After I did the romantic curls hairstyle, I raked the front part of my hair back with fingers and clipped it with a BIG chiffon bow. I pulled out my bangs and played with them a little bit to make it a little more grown up, and added more of Kérastase's Lumiére Liquide for that extra shine.


SOCK BUN A fashion favorite at the moment ;) Probably because it's cute and EASY! I'm going to give you a basic run-down of it and link you to a Youtube video. Brush your hair into a high ponytail and secure with an elastic. Cut the toe off of a sock and roll it into a doughnut. Or, you could buy a 'hair doughnut' at Sally's Beauty Supply. Pull your ponytail through the sock doughnut, and then start wrapping your ponytail ends under the sock doughnut. Repeat until you've reached the base of your ponytail, and secure with bobby pins!
Here is a video that shows you how!

Now...to announce the winners! Thank you so much for everyone who took the time to enter, I loved seeing what everyone did! Congratulations to the gorgeous ladies below, you will all be treated to the full Cristalliste Collection and a Kérastase in-salon visit!
