The Perfect T-shirt

The perfect t-shirt is hard to find.  I wear t-shirts all the time in L.A. They are the perfect under-layer that by 12:00 is the only layer. My t-shirts have to be soft, non-boob-bearing, muffin-top camouflaging and not $100.  Here is my favorite right now that happens to be on sale for $15 via GAP. This is a good t-shirt and for the price you can't beat it. I wear these under a boyfriend cut v-neck cashmere sweater with skinny jeans and moto boots, under a blazer or on it's own with a pretty, delicate necklace.  Check it out!

Here is the look:

I just noticed the link for the J Brand jeans is not working right now.  This is the same cut but in a carbon blue which I also LOVE!! These jeans are buttery soft and the perfect mid-rise fit:

On the Lookout

I have been hunting high and low for great low boots for the Fall season. As much as we all love the $600 boots out there I wanted to find some more budget friendly options for clients. Here are some that I love that won't dent the credit card bill!

Ten things I love for Fall

These are 10 things for Fall that I love! Every season I have to balance what I have to have with my budget. For Fall I recommend going with quality over quantity on your wardrobe staple items such as bags, sweaters and shoes. You can look for less a lot of the other pieces. This is a high-low mix but mostly these are investment pieces.

#1: Boyfriend cashmere sweater:

Equipment 'Rei' Cashmere Sweater

#2: Gorgeous red coat (at a fair price!)
