My week’s covetables began with my search for a new spring bag that is at once both classic and distinctive; Celine’s nutmeg geometrical bag with its pop of red, and unique handle delivers handsomely on both counts. The mirrored Ray Ban Aviator’s are fun, a bit of retro, and come in a multitude of colors (I got mine in blue). Extra bonus – they’re also on sale!! And, it wouldn’t be a wish list of mine with out Isabel Marant somewhere in the mix — this week it’s her white Milo lacy top.
This spring chuck your black jeans and opt for Siwy’s light grey skinnies instead. They’re the fresh, new modern neutral that will add an instant chic update to your denim collection. Feeling like your wardrobe has become a little on the dull side? Craving a spark when you look inside your closet? The remedy awaits in Opening Ceremony’s mixture of wood prints cargo mini skirt!
My list ends with my neighbor’s, the talented writer Michelle Fiordaliso, new Tod’s loafers which inspired me to lust after this embodiment of a never-going-away classic. Thanks Michelle for all your inspirations!

Seems like everyone I know is either having a baby, or is getting married. ‘Always a bridesmaid, never the bride’, that’s me; actually that’s not even me, I’m just a guest. All joking aside, I’m super psyched to be attending Chelsea’s (Guest Editor of COS) wedding in a few weeks.
It is an evening wedding so options are boundless. You can opt for the foolproof LBD, whether with a flirty tulip skirt and bustier top – like Denis Gagnons, or Zara’s sexy open back dress with metal collar. Speaking of flirty, Red Valentino’s pale pink drop waist dress with its classic silhouette and whimsy front black bow is perfect for a day or night wedding.
If you looking for an ensemble with a little more edge, yet tres chic, I’ve got just the thing – O’2nd Swan pleat jumpsuit. The pants are fitted and cropped and the back of the bodice embodies an open back with oversize pleats.
I think I’ll be leaning towards edge (O’2nd) for Chelsea’s wedding. I’ll dress it up with barely there strappy heels, a Kelly Wearstler cocktail ring and a soft and sexy up-do.

A somewhat older (no, I won’t say how old) gentleman friend of mine loves the look of jeans, tee shirt and a leather jacket. His question? Was he to old for that look?
We all know the answer is a definitive NO! What matters is the look of the jacket, the styling, and how one feels when wearing it.
These are six fantastic jackets that don’t break the bank, he’ll have for ever, and will work for your man no matter his age. My favs — Belstaff’sclassic Kirkham jacket and Zadig & Voltaire’s stream lined moto jacket.

The count down to Coachella weekend 2 is upon us, and if any of the chatter about the first weekend is anywhere close to being true….It’s going to be another 3 days of awe inspiring music with lots of special guests!
If your lucky enough to be going this weekend make sure to arrive early to catch the British ‘It’ guy Tom Odell (he starts at 12:45 pm on Friday). He is amazing!! Other great acts to NOT miss – Solange (sister of Beyoncé), Lorde, Nas, Lana Del Rey, Haim, Foster The People, Beck and one of my favorite bands — Arcade Fire. For complete line-up and set times.
Check out some of my favorite looks from week one above.
If your still ruminating over your foolproof music festival attire for this weekend, any of these delectable pieces will have the paparazzi mistaking you for the new ‘IT’ girl! I can’t even choose a favorite – I love them all (though I must have those Birkenstocks)!!
Don’t forget sunscreen, it’s hot (in the 90′s) out there.

I just realized that tonight’s lunar eclipse — the first of four consecutive total eclipses of the moon between April 2014 and September 2015 in what is called a “tetrad” series (Before the 20th century it had been 300 years since we had seen this series.) — will also reveal a Blood Moon.
A total lunar eclipse happens when the earth, moon and sun are in perfect rare alignment. Tonight you’ll see the earth’s shadow sweeping across the moon and eventually the moon will almost look like it has disappeared, but it hasn’t, it is then that the moon will be a bright red.
Why will the moon look red? If you standing on the moon, after the eclipse, you would see a red ring of fire which are all the sunsets of the earth lighting up the moon. We’re seeing the sun passing through the earth making all the world’s sunsets light up the moon, turning it the blood red color. It’s a cool time to take a moment and reflect where you are in this universe.
It’s also the closet Mars has been to the earth in over six years, with clear skies, you’ll get to see the moon being eclipsed and mars shining bright orange right next to it. Imagine viewing a blood red moon and an orange mars!!
On the west coast 11:00 is the start of the lunar eclipse and the Blood Moon will be seen at 12:06.
