Award season is here… This week in LA there will be a lot of dresses flowing through town, even more than usual. Love these for the red carpet.

Sundance starts in two weeks and as always I am beyond excited. Sleep becomes a luxury but the energy of the filmmakers and film lovers gives me all the rejuvenation I need. That and amazing beauty products. Along with great films there is of course a mountain high list of dinners, parties and other fun events. I usually wake up at 7AM to make it to my first 9AM screening (see above, last year I showed up for the first screening of the season before the volunteers…) and surface from the theaters around 9pm, just in time to hit a dinner and after party. One of my favorite places to do both is LA-born Rock & Reilly’s who just opened their second spot in Park City. The now permanent 427 Main Street location next door to Park City Live is hosting their usual killer list of film Continue reading

Love this track “Cowboys & Indians,” from Australia’s Allie & Ivy, formed by singer Aleisha Conlay and instrumentalist Matais Coulter in 2011. Check out the track and video below. Happy New Year! Continue reading
There are two artists I always find myself defending at parties and during heated cultural debates. One of them for a lot more years than the other but that’s just age and circumstance and both of them repeatedly this past year. The full essay is up on Huffington Post today as well as below.

Speaking of faux fur for the new year, I found this perfect vest at Darryl’s in Rhinebeck last week while doing some post Christmas shopping. It was on sale for $50 so I couldn’t resist even though I have more than enough faux fur in my closet. There was a lot of great vintage shopping in Rhinebeck as well, and a cute little consignment shop across the way from Darryl’s on Market Street that had a great selection of bags and clothes. It’s only an hour and a half from the city by train or car so the perfect day trip. There is an amazing home decor store called Spruce as well, which I fell in love with. You can hit Upstate Films for a movie and Liberty next door for food and cocktails after.

NYE has never been a night for me to go out or go big. I usually end up at home in my sweats falling asleep by 12:30AM. This year a friend of mine and I decided to at least leave the neighborhood so will be ringing in the new year with beer and pickles in hand at The Pickle Shack in Brooklyn. The bartenders are cute and the grilled cheese is awesome. What more can a girl ask for? So the look is more day than night on the town but that’s just right for me. Sole Society booties above, with a Givenchy black and beige Antigona clutch, a pink faux fur jacket from Mural, and a Stella and Dot bracelet for stacking below (a little faux bling never hurt on NYE). Happy New Year lovelies! Just be glad you’re here, as they say. More fun to come! Continue reading
Happy holidays! See you after Santa parks his sled… I’m off to make the mashed potatoes.
Amazing article in the New York Times this week on the legendary punk rock lady Lydia Lunch. Love her.
Last minute gifts that don’t feel rushed… My favorite whisky of the moment, Brenne (full disclosure, our amazing friend Allison Patel launched this whiskey which she had been developing for several years in France about a year ago. How cool is she? I love my girlfriends…) and the tres chic Mr.Porter style guide. More bags, baubles and beauty below. Continue reading
