The weather here has been so off and on that depending on what direction you drive in for 20 minutes, your attire can go from brilliantly planned (inside the confines of my bedroom) to burning hot (inland) to damn cold (back by the water again at sunset). Keeps things fun.

I choose white over cream whenever give a choice but I’ve been wearing this shirt semi-exclusively for the past week. After I got over the fact that it’s missing the bottom two buttons, it quickly proved itself perfect for balancing out denim.

I got a lot of questions about my cats over the past couple days! Kumo (the gray one) is Persian and Bijou (the black one) is half Persian and half Himalayan. They quickly decided after they came home with us which human they wanted to claim to themselves..Bijou follows Colin’s every last move and Kumo has attached himself pretty ferociously to me, going so far as to sleep with his head on my pillow every night. I really never thought it was possible to love an animal so much. I’m totally one of those people now.

A couple weeks ago Angela and Julia from METAL magazine came down to SD to shoot me for the June issue..the weather was disgustingly gray so we ended up taking it indoors to our humble abode. As you can see, Kumo and Bijou were champs throughout. Between everyone laughing at our on-crack cat’s antics, a spontaneous McDonald’s run, and blasting every obnoxious song we could, we had a ton of fun. They brought a rack full of crazy amazing pieces – I particularly fell in love with the Brian Lichtenberg mesh dresses and even got to pet the glorious hair shoes. WOW. I offered up some of my own pieces for Angela to work in and she kind of created an awesomely amped up take on my style. I’ll post the rest when the issue comes out.

backyard behavior

Sometimes it feels good to lie around your backyard in a neon pink minidress (which btw I recommend to all who want to release their inner ice skater). To be honest, the randomness of what I wear around our place and the surrounding 100 foot radius is alarming. The UPS guy finds this pretty entertaining. Last time he came around he asked me, “So how big exactly is your shoe closet?”

Hmm..more like one trunk, two racks, multiple hanging organizers, a brimming car trunk, and still a surplus that invades the floor beneath the kitchen counter. But this was too intense to explain.

Some of you may remember a most fairy tale-like experience I had in Paris back in March thanks to designer of Ungaro Esteban Cortazar. He was as charming and fun as he was generous with his time for me and Colin – from getting to see his show at the Louvre (if you must know, the invitations are propped up on my dresser next to all my jewelry) to having dinner at George’s complete with a Kanye sighting, he made our time unforgettable. He was sweet enough to send me some of my favorite pieces from his fall collection to play around with…this dripping-in-chains angora hoodie was one of the most gasp inducing looks for me. I honestly removed it from the package as if it was an ancient fossil of sorts and Colin agreed upon trying it on that it was just ridiculously good. Complete with a two-way zipper, fierce little shoulder pads, and an extra slouchy hood, there’s pretty much nothing I can think of that wouldn’t look amazing with it, or the strawberry red clutch for that matter. Thank you Esteban, much love from California to Paris!

Weekend lounging in some new favorites..

Friday I had the unbelievable opportunity to model as well as style a spring style guide with Revolve. With previous issues having been styled by industry giants such as Rachel Zoe and Eric Daman from Gossip Girl, I was more than a little nervous but that faded into excitement when I arrived at their studio in downtown LA and got to pore over and pick from racks and racks of amazing pieces. Some favorites included the zipper back boot by Minimarket, a pair of Wayne culotte shorts, a Complex Geometries tunic, a Larsen Gray gray jersey cutout dress, a unicorn print crop top, and some brightly printed dresses perfect for the warmer weather. I posted some behind the scenes photos complete with teased out-to-there hair on Twitpic if you want to check them out. Thank you so much to the fun and talented team at Revolve!
