Cream of the Crop

Have you all heard about all the LIN-SANITY? It’s crazy. Knicks superstar Jeremy Lin is the topic of conversation everywhere. I have to admit, I was clueless until my brother-in-law, Colin (who’s an avid basketball fan) gave me the low-down. But now I love this kid… he has a great story, was sleeping on his brothers couch as of 2 weeks ago and getting zero game time. Then all the sudden he is all anyone in the NBA wants to talk about. He’s adorable, a Harvard grad, grew up in Palo Alto, seems humble and less “affected” than so many of the rising stars, just a good, clean kid… people he grew up with claim him to be the nicest person they’ve ever known.¬†I have to admit, I’m not really a huge basketball fan (completely clueless), but I’m kind of in to watching him play! Might even watch a game or two ūüėČ

Ladies always seem to inspire me during NYC fashion week. Everywhere you go, the outfits are pretty incredible, and usually rather original. Here are some of my favorites so far:

I’m seriously digging both. Love the prints, mix-matching, colors… its fun, unexpected, original. ¬†We all need to change things up now and then.

Love these pictures of designer, Christina Hutson and her adorable kids at home!  We first met the ever cool couple Christina and her husband Swaim in NYC when they were designing the hip mens brand Obedient Sons.  We were instantly struck by their sharp sense of  style and warm demeanor.

Packing for NYC…

February 4, 2012 § Leave a comment

It’s that time of year…. Fashion Week begins next Thursday! ¬†Packing for this trip is always a little daunting…. there are so many things to consider: ¬†comfort, warmth (weather forecast is in the 40’s!), versatility, space (that suitcase can only fit so much) and of coarse looking effortlessly chic at every moment. ¬†Thankfully I enlist the help of the Closet Angel, Angie (happens to be our store manager), to get me organized and ready to go. ¬†Here are a few outfits we came up with….

Comfortable shoes are critical for being on your feet all day. Love these Margiela booties we got in for spring…

New top from Raquel Allegra… can be a dress or layered with leggings.

…liking the brown mixed with black leggings

…for dinner out one night

These Lars Andersson knits are going to be great layers for keeping me warm….

…paired with these Esquivel boots will keep me ready for any weather!

Gotta have a pair of sneaks! My new black patent Margiela are so edgy & cool…

Now all I have to do is fit this into my suitcase!

Eva and Gentry Dayton. The ¬†cool, edgy couple behind the Brooklyn store¬†Eva Gentry¬†that houses a minimalistic vibe of designers from around the world. We always try and fit in a visit during our trips to NYC. A few shots below from their home… which I find completely inspiring: a gallery-like, rocker feel, yet completely livable and inviting.
