The Real Real came this week so that means clearing out the old and making room for the new. One thing that I’m shopping for are easy to wear lightweight tops that can be worn throughout the Spring Summer season. These are some that I am considering.
Fashion News – Christy Dawn just launched their Farm-to-Closet line this week. Christy Dawn has nourished 24 acres of land in India where they farm cotton, weave fabric, and use century old techniques to block print in a mission to not only be sustainable but to help replenish the soil. Favorites pieces from the line Marin Dress // Bennett Dress //Avery Jumper // Violet Dress
Minneapolis based brand Mille designs some of my favorite tops and dresses. Their pieces are comfortable, fun, feminine, and easy to wear. I love their vibrant block prints and use of natural fibers. Check out my Mille edit below.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I hosted Mother’s Day at my house this year. We kept it simple and ordered from Joan’s on Third and got bagels from Pop’s Bagels. If you haven’t tried them they are amazing! You can get them fully baked (you’re supposed to eat them warm), or half baked and you can finish them off in the oven at home.
SALE ALERT! Shopbop is running a Preview Sale with up to 40% off select items (to shop the whole sale click here). A couple things to check out.
It was a busy week at Julesee.com with the release of my first batch of super soft custom chainstitch embroidered sweatshirts (more to come DM me to preorder), shopping with clients, and lots of blogging. I did have time to stop at Platform LA for lunch at Bianca Bakery (which I highly recommend), browsed in the boutiques, and stopped for an iced matcha from Boba Guys (my fave). Wishing everyone a Happy Mother’s Day!
I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of H&M’s collaboration with resort wear brand Lemlem (launches 5/6 8am EST). Lemlem was started by model and actress Liya Kebede. Liya started the brand with hopes to preserve the art of weaving and create more jobs in her native country of Ethiopia. The capsule collection consists of 28 pieces that retail from $13.99-$49.99. To shop the collaboration click here. It’s won’t last long!
I loved this weekend’s WSJ article The Never-ending Joy of the 90’s a walk down fashion memory lane with Carolyn Murphy, Shalom Harlow, and Amber Valletta. It talks about how their friendship has grown over the years and how they have adjusted to the ever evolving fashion industry. The styling by Clare Richardson was spot on, it captured their natural beauty and carefree style. I gathered some pieces from the shoot and listed them below.
I have to say it’s been so nice to be able to go out to restaurants, socialize, and get dressed up. We finally made it to Roberta’s at the Platform over the weekend. I loved the salads, pizza, and stracciatella! Also on the food front, La Double J launched their collaboration with Ladurée you can check out the beautiful French macarons here and dishes here.
Happy Friday everyone! Outdoor dining is the new norm in LA and there is definitely a need for an extra layer to stay warm in the evenings. I love the above cardigan Blaire Eadie is wearing by Stella Nova. Some other options to keep you warm while dining alfresco.
