Michelle Fawbush - Soho House

I met the lovely Michelle Fawbush while speaking on a panel about fashion and street style at Soho House, the first in a series called Fashion for Breakfast that was sponsered by Harpers Bazaar. Michelle, an editor at the magazine was in town to moderate and lead the conversation.


I love this Mansur Graviel bucket bag with the peep of red.


Also these Dannijo earrings are the cats pajamas!

Trend Spotting - Hats

Ever since Pharell broke the intenet with his big ol' hat at the Grammies I've been noticing lot's of chapeus around town. Here are three examples of ladies who are making it work.



Go big like stylist Brandy Kraft with her babe Harvey Lars.  Her wide brim hat looks increible with the long dress and I love the swaddling blanket she has draped over her adorable babe Harvey Lars.


Try a fedora like knockout Eva of Monika Dixon PR. She looks divine here in this fringey top and grey topper. Just remember, with a fedora size matters, anything too small and you run the risk of looking like you're stepping out in Wrigleyville. Eva's hat is just right.

Go for a throw back 90's look like the beautiful Aramide Esubi of the blog The Sassy Peach. I spotted her across from the iconic Chicago Theatre looking lovely in a smaller brimmed black hat, I love how it showcases her major bangs.

Kristen Gipson at Lollapalooza

Was such a pleasure to meet the lovely Kristen Gipson, owner of for RSVP gallery, jewelery designer and all around style maven at Lollapalooza this weekend.


She's wearing a crazy cool "100" necklace from her soon to be launched line Kdia. She's also sporting a top by Azeeza.

It's actually raining pretty hard in these photos, but despite it all Kristen manages to look fresh as a dasiy. The only evidence of the downpour and surrounding muck are a few raindrops on her chanel and a bit of mud on her Celine kicks (see her instagram for what happens moments later :)
