In Silverlake

Silverlake is a neighborhood about 40 minutes from us and in this busy stage of life it is hard to get over there.  This summer I am going to spend a day up there and hit all of the places that I have been reading about.  Here are some Silverlake street style photos via WWD Echo Park Craft fair.

The must buy piece for summer

I read this interesting blurb in Lucky magazine about this seasons must have and I thought it was great: via lucky

Question: Like, if you could buy just one new piece, what should it be? —Shoko
A: Dear Shoko, I wandered into the fashion department and there was the legendary stylist Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele, resplendently tanned and jangling with bracelets, combing through black velvet trays of accessories for her next shoot. I couldn’t believe my luck. She raised an eyebrow at my question, then frowned. “Trends!” she declared. “Eeet is not about a trend. Eeet is about style!” She turned toward the racks of clothes, searching violently through hanger after hanger. I thought maybe that was it—that Carlyne, irked by trends, was through with me.
But she pulled out a hanger and held the item above her head in triumph: a navy cotton crewneck from A.P.C. “This!!” she exclaimed, shaking it. “Eeet is perfection! This is the one thing, the only thing for summer.” She smoothed the sweater approvingly. “Simplement chic,” she murmured. “And this one, it’s not like any other one. The shape is perfect.” Every woman should have it, she insisted: “You wear it with jeans, white capri pants, a little bikini bottom, a pareo … This is what he [here she was referring to Jean Touitou, the founder/designer/A.P.C. progenitor] knows: You don’t have to dress sexy to be sexy. This,” she shook the crewneck again for good measure, “this is sexy.”

Here is a great top that reminds me of this piece: (on sale too:)

To Lob?

This photo makes me want to lob (long bob) it all off! Super chic and love the beachy waves.

Still digging the snake print

For summer I love the look of snake with crisp white. It is clean, chic and gives white some edge. Here is the shoe from Emerson Fry that is the perfect pop (and super comfy too).
