Beach Bums

July 17, 2014
L*Space bikini
Currently packing for my trip to Miami on Friday for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Miami with the brand 6 Shore Road. So I thought these pictures snapped from a random midweek beach trip to the Rockaways with Natalie and Kiara were suitable.  It was windy as heck, and we kept getting sand in our mouths and other funny places, but it was well worth it. And two words. ROCKAWAY TACO. Mmmmmmmm. I’m so happy that this summer has been full of indulgent beachy getaways whenever I’ve had the chance . . . far much more this summer than last. I don’t think I’ll ever truly get sick of it.

Local Eats | House of Small Wonder

June 24, 2014

Brooklyn is probably one of my favorite places to go out and get some delicious food, and I’m not just saying that because I live in Brooklyn (Williamsburg to be exact). But there really is an amazingly widespread selection of super cute restaurants and coffee shops that I’ve discovered in the past year of me being a Brooklynite. House of Small Wonder is one of these fab discoveries. This small and charming coffee shop/sit-down eatery makes you feel like you are literally sitting in a tree house. The window panels on the ceilings let a bunch of natural light in, and there is a tree growing straight through the middle of the restaurant. Inspired by European cafes, but with a very zen, Japanese style influence thrown into the mix, House of Small Wonder makes for quite the unique lunch/late lunch experience. I say lunch because it closes at 7pm on weekdays and 5pm on weekends. The menu is quite extraordinary, as well. Every dish is an interesting fusion of all sorts of cultures. Everything I’ve tried so far has been out of this world divine tasting. The Grilled Chicken Sandwich Plate is one of my favorite dishes (see above). The chicken literally melts in your mouth, and the bread is slathered in the one of the most savory mayo spreads I’ve ever tried. A side of tomato salad is a refresher in between ever bite, which is basically heaven. Trust me.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic

June 21, 2014
Pam & Gela dress, DANNIJO choker (shop similar HERE), Free People sunnies, DV by Dolce Vita boots
Flashback to a few weeks back at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Sun, delicious food, overflowing bottles of champagne, awesome friends and some really good people watching (never before have I seen so many pastels and wedges in one place). This was my first time at a polo match, and it actually was a lot of fun, until the storm kicked in and we were forced to head back to the city. If I ever get the chance to go again, I’m definitely wearing the biggest hat I can find.

H&M + DoSomething.org | Comeback Clothes

June 16, 2014

Spring is nearly over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still jump on the spring cleaning bandwagon and give new life to the old in your closet. H&M is currently working with DoSomething.org, a not-for-profit organization aimed towards getting young people involved within their communities without having to spend any money. Together they created the Comeback Clothes program, something that comes in super handy for us fashion people with overflowing closets that just keep growing and growing. It’s a fabulous way for us to give back by recycling our clothing and promoting a more sustainable fashion culture. Working in the fashion industry, I know the ups and down of consumerism. It’s always more, more and more. Trend up trend upon trend. Sometimes we can find ourselves getting lost in the materialism of trends coming and going, and never letting go of this wasteful cycle is harmful not only to the environment, but also to our minds. Fashion can be a very beautiful thing, but it’s even more beautiful when it can be shared and recycled.

Comeback Clothes encourages customers to bring their unwanted clothing or collected clothing (any condition, any size, any brand) to any H&M store and drop them off in the garment recycling bins in exchange for 15% off their next purchase.

It’s never too late to edit down and give something old to new hands so the fashion stories can keep on being told and passed along. Get on it people.
