Motorcycle jackets at a fair price and what to wear with them

Many clients are in the market for the perfect motorcycle jacket that doesn't cost $900 (especially if it is made in a Chinese factory). Here are some great options for a better price. As long as it is real, soft leather and a great cut, I am not concerned about the label sewn on inside. I like moto jackets with a softer suede shoe. I don't love the moto jacket with moto boots--too much (especially on a mom of 3). I love these jackets with skinny rolled boyfriend jeans and a thin long sleeve, well cut cashmere sweater. I also love a fox fur collar scarf around the neck.  They have them in every color of the rainbow at Last Call outlet if you are looking for the look for less. Check out below for the Lookbook.

A great hightop and how to wear it...

I just ordered these high tops and I think they are going to look great.  Here is how I am going to wear them. For the price, if they don't work you can give them to your teenage babysitter.

The Jean Vest and how to wear it



During the late nineties denim vests were hot.  I remember them in 1996.  I wore mine with a cashmere turtleneck, black 501 Levis and Black hightop Doc Martins. Here are some updated versions.

A great dress and how to wear it

I have been in Club Monaco lately a lot buying for clients.  The clothing is beautifully cut, made of real, beautiful material like silk and cashmere and the prices are fair.  I found this dress in there on sale and it looks great on.  It needs to be belted on most people to cinch in the waist.  If you are a waif you can wear it loose but for the rest of us the belt is a must.  Here is the look and how to wear it.  dress

Christmas is Coming...

This weekend we trekked over to the YMCA Palisades lot in the mist and mud to get the perfect, fat tree. We found a great one and I love the whole ritual of the kids racing around, closely inspecting each tree. Asking eachother: It is crooked? Is it dry? Will it fit in our house? Will our ornaments fit?  Here are some Christmas home shots of what we have going on here this crazy time of year!

This is the garland I made this year. I got all of the greenery and flowers from Smith & Hawken via Target. I added the satsuma oranges with their leaves. The next step is to put whole cloves in them so that my house smells like orangey-nutmeg goodness.

This wreath and doormat are from Target, Smith & Hawken. Not online that I can find but plenty at your local Target. Poinsetta's via Trader Joes ($6)




This is a boxwood wreath from Trader Joes ($9)and I used a thick green ribbon with gold edging to tie it and nailed it to the top of the window. 



No, this is not a high school dance.  This is a group of our friends. We went to Straight No Chaser (a 10 man a cappella group) at The Pantages.  We went to Katsuya before and behind us is the monstrosity that got us there.  It was actually awesome.
