It was love at first sight when I spotted this chic, vintage Emilio Pucci maxi cardigan on Etsy. It was almost to good to be true. The nice neutral color with delicate cable detailing make this interesting piece wearable with just about anything. When you discover an absolute classic in near perfect condition… you can’t resist. Wear it as a casual dress with a slip and heels, pop it over a party dress or skirt for evening, or piece it together with a vintage tee, shorts, and flats for a casual weekend. Yesterday was a bit gloomier than today, day two of our “big” Los Angeles storm, so it was perfect to pop this linen cardigan over basic black for a day of inspiration shopping. Some biker boots and fairisle socks for warmth made it perfect for the gloomy weather. I have had this cross body Coach bag for probably over ten years. I rarely pull it out but it is perfect for shopping days and traveling. It wears close to the body so no risk of accidentally bumping things over and it goes perfectly with my beige duster.
Weekend errands in the flower and fabric district… a little crazy but always fun. There are so many people and things to see. Although the chaos is exhausting, the experience is still exciting. From the roof top parking lots things are a bit more peaceful looking. It was a great place for a few quick pictures before heading on to conquer more errands. An urban luxe outfit was perfect for a day of downtown hustle and bustle. A vibrant tropical print blouse I found at Kapsoul, sequin moto jacket, lace trim shorts, and of course silver dunks and I was ready to take the town.
My absence as of late can only be explained by extreme busyness. Eloy and I gave ourselves a break on Sunday to enjoy brunch at The Daily Dose, one of our happy hiding spots. Tucked away in a curved alley turned court yard near the popular Church and State, it is the perfect escape from all the looming responsibilities. An americano and the scramble with apple buttered baguette later I was feeling normal for a moment… maybe even relaxed. As I sat and took it all in I noticed an interesting shop in the alley. I had some time, why not check it out? I entered the pop up shop and found my new clothes crush. Soft, delicate, feminine, and beautifully made, Vivian Chan’s ballerina inspired Spring collection whispered sweet nothings in my ear. Everything about the collection feels fresh, clean, and light. There are a few pieces that I want right now… looks like I am rushing into my new clothes-mance!! vivianchan.com
