On my recent trip to Mexico, we stopped into a little town near our hotel called Sayulita. It had a great Malibu-meets-Mexico vibe, and we slurped melting lime paletas while wandering the streets. There were cute shops and street vendors selling pretty bracelets, dream catchers, bikinis and ponchos (many of which came home with me). At the end of one road, with the beach on the horizon, there was a stall that looked like a rainbow explosion— a million hand-made pom poms in garlands, wall…

Instagram has a way of amplifying indie art. Just think of Donald Robertson’s fashionable giraffes or Banksy’s irreverent street art. The latest manifestation of that phenomenon is pins. (Bonus: it’s a wearable art trend!) Enamel pins that reflect pop and internet culture are currently being collected like crazy. They’re super cute and are often based on emojis or memes, like “girl raising hand” or “Damn, Daniel!” It’s a strange real life-Instagram loop.

Tech on trend: Tassels

Tech on trend: Tassles

Summer puts a swing in my step, makes me feel sassy enough to grab a tassel and give it a twirl. Lately, I’m seeing tassels everywhere: They give a suede cross-body bag a bit of boho edge, or make a throw pillow look more worldly. Mostly they just make me happy— I don’t know if it’s because they look like little tails, or because they’re just enough flourish to take a simple shoe to the next level. Below, find some tassels for your home, your self,…

LA Fashion Brands I’ll Be Wearing All Summer

Their pieces are relaxed, simple, and feminine. They feel coastal, yet modern. They’re unadorned, but incredibly stylish. I could go on. And guess what, I will! The following is a love letter to my favorite LA fashion…
