Can you believe we're almost closing the 2011 chapter! Cheers to time spent with family, a day or two of rest and a new clean slate come 2012.
The Vamoose is an amazing handmade jewelry collection from the UK designed by Kathryn Blackmore. She garners her inspiration from various places around Europe and the world which results in each piece telling it's own story.
Her work has been featured on many of our favorite style blogs and now we know where to go next time we're in the need of amazing hand crafted accessories. (she ships worldwide, sometimes even for free!) Get to know her.
Every year when the holidays come around, we get in the mood for baking. Whether it be cookies, or scrumptious pies; we always have our expectations set high.
What we fail to remember is, we're not blessed with the ability to throw a couple things together and create a masterpiece; we need guidance and A LOT of it.
So we collected amazing sounding recipes, taken from the always yummy Smitten Kitchen and we're looking forward to trying our hand at some over the holiday break. We'll keep you posted with how it goes. (fingers crossed)
Yesterday model and makeup artist Megan Porschen stopped by our office for a visit. She was dressed to perfection in this modern bohemian look, looking cozy and layered for a California winter. We love the way Megan wears our "Stakeout" boots. She says they're the perfect boots and she wears them with everything! What do you think?
We love seeing our shoes make it into to the blogosphere! It's always interesting to see how they look styled out and strolling the streets, so keep it up and don't be shy about sending more photos our way.
Happy Holidays! If you are like me, you are probably scrambling for gift ideas and preparing for the holidays. One of my favorite gifts to give and receive are cookbooks! There is something really special to me about sharing food and the way you eat with others. This is the kind of gift that is thoughtful, practical, and brings the person joy throughout the year when they use your gift!
So in the spirit of the holidays, here are some cookbooks that I think would make great gifts this season!
We've been obsessed with Matt & Julie Walker, the husband and wife team and creative geniuses behind TIGER IN A JAR for almost a year now. Like all healthy relationships, (ahem obsessions) we try and let a little time go by in between check-ins so we're pleasantly surprised at what newness they have created for us to swoon over.
Well....they've done it again. A perfectly made, beautifully shot, gift guide filled with treasures and treats one can create and make for their loved ones DIY style. This literally could not be more us!!
Matt and Julie, we raise our cider and tip our knit caps to you. We can't wait to see what 2012 brings.
Wouldn’t it be nice to take a peek into the closets of stylish women?
Artist Jeana Sohn does just that with her website Closet Visit, taking us into a world of beauty and inspiration. Founded in 2010, Jeana photographs the closets (and the things that go in them) of fashionable women all over Los Angeles. There are inspirational outfits, gorgeous designer pieces, amazing vintage finds, sparkling jewels, and fabulous shoes to be seen. Included with the beautiful photos are interviews about style, favorites, and some fashion advice. Jeana Sohn along with Claire Cottrell also introduced two short films this year for Closet Visit that are simply breathtaking. Watch them below, and once you have fallen in love with the beauty of the films, wander over here to start some closet visiting. And, when you are done with that, check out Jeana'sblog, art site, and photography site for some more loveliness.
Once Thanksgiving is over, it's already time to start planning for the holidays. I've been taking a peek around online to find the perfect holiday outfit, and found these pieces that would transition perfectly from Holiday Shopping to Holiday Party! Since I'm based in Los Angeles we can get away with shorts and dresses in the winter, but these pieces would also look great layered with tights and a chic coat! You can bet I'll be pairing some of my favorite Seychelles shoes with my outfits this season!
Today we're lauding The Civil Wars. To say we love this band is simply not enough. We had the privilege of seeing them live this past weekend and the show far surpassed our expectations.
Every once in awhile, you hear, see or experience something that you know is extraordinary. The Civil Wars, live in concert, was definitely one of those defining moments.
Having sung together now for only 3 years after meeting in a song writing session in Nashville, this duo has taken the industry by storm. Their voices blend as if they are coming from the same source. They are old school, talent rich and dress up for the occasion.
Get to know them with these backstage videos shot on their tour this past Summer.
Our new ALL DRESSED UP heels are the perfect shoe (and the truth is they are even better in person). Paired with a faux fur jacket and a tunic dress over skinny jeans, this outfit lasts from work meeting to friend's dinner.
We love visiting The Selby to get a daily dose of what's happening in other people's lives. They now have taken it one step further and teamed up with ZARA on a video series featuring English bred and NYC based gallerist Lucy Chadwick.
If we were to describe Lucy's world, we would use words like simple, classic, linear and artistic. An artist by trade, her effortless aesthetic is apparent in her NYC apartment, her barn in the woods and pretty much everything she takes part in.
Instead of feeling the need to hurry and finish, her and her partner have chosen to build from the ground up, take time curating and making the right choices for the spot they've chosen to put their roots down. We should all seek to find our place and do the same.

David Amico's FACTORY / PARK SERIES is now up at Ace Gallery in Beverly Hills. This Los Angeles based artist took inspiration from Skid Row and transformed it to create these beautiful abstract paintings. I was inspired to pair up some of his paintings with my favorite fall Seychelles shoes. I can just imagine wearing any of these shoes while visiting the gallery with my friends. The show just started and will be on view through December. This is one art show you should not miss this season!

Tom Ford's new documentary VISIONARIES premiered on the OWN network in October. It documents his rise and continued success in the various verticals he dances between; photography, beauty, eyewear, fashion design and movie-making.
Since his exit from GUCCI in 2004, he has worked to establish his own brand and continues to amaze the masses with his attention to detail, design and overall aesthetic. Simply put, he is and will continue to be a force in the fashion industry for decades to come.
Today we pay tribute to the original muse of haute couture, Loulou de la Falaise. She died November 5th in her home in France, after a year long battle with cancer. She was 64 and much too young.
Loulou was a fashion pioneer, she challenged the normal standard for women's wear and became the muse and closest confidante of Yves Saint Laurent. She was the first person to inject the Paris collections with bursts of jewelry and solidified the importance of hand crafted baubles as an integral part of each season's collection. She worked for the design house for three decades and will forever be remembered as the inspiration and force behind both YSL and her own label Loulou de la Falaise.
The Versace for H&M collection is unveiling itself tonight in New York City with a full fashion presentation and a performance by Prince and Nicki Minaj. We wish we could be there to watch in person but will have to settle for the many pics and blog postings showcasing it's fierceness online tomorrow. One thing you can see, no matter where you are this evening, is the collection in full.
Slated to hit 300 stores nationwide and online November 17th means for the first time in forever Versace = affordable and accessible. Start taking notes on your favorites and plan on setting the alarm early to get a good spot in line. (both locally and virtually) This collection already has amassed enough buzz to rival its predecessor, Lanvin.
