Last Sunday I had the pleasure of spending my afternoon
shopping browsing the AMAZING couture collection at Joy Bianchi’s, Helpers House of Couture. Now Joy throws some major events in San Francisco and this was one of them. On top of the MAJOR collection of couture, she already houses in her 3 homes that line Golden Gate Park this was event celebrated the lives of Amber Marie Bentley and Oscar de la Renta.
Now, what does one wear to this kind of an event?
My closet is not filled with couture so I had to make it work! After a major hunt, I found this Chanel blouse (who knew) that I scored on Poshmark for $100 years ago. After all the wardrobe changes, I ended up looking like an amazing mix of Joy Bianchi and Carmen Sandiego…perfect.
I found this killer throwback picture of me wearing a McQueen cape the very first time I met Joy a year or so ago at Helpers.
Check out Joy in the background! Her style is flawless.
I also had an amazing time catching up with fellow bloggers Angela, from Auvê Daily and Ryan aka The Little King on instagram. After 4 or 5 glasses of white wine everyone was ready to pose in front of Joy’s house! But, hey isn’t that what bloggers do?
What I Wore:
Top: Chanel via Poshmark. Love these two options from The Real Real here + here.
Tank: Groceries via Les Mechantes, Swing Tank
Jeans: Gap, 1969 Destructed Authentic Boyfriend Jeans
Shoes: Christian Louboutin, ‘Petit Rat 100′ Pumps (old). Need these.
Sunglasses: Prada, Round Baroque Sunglasses

Last night I accidently walked out of the house dressed like Sandy from the movie Grease.

Top: Banana Republic, Draped Lace Top
Pants: American Apparel, Shiny Legging. Love this option from Topshop here.
Shoes: Valentino, Tango Pump

Shop life has proven to be very fun + smooth sailing so far. Because of this I decided to venture out to the mission once we closed our doors at 6 pm last night. The team at Everlane hosted an open studio event and I was very curious to check out their space!
Now, their space did not disappoint. I am pretty sure that everyone who walked in immediately wanted to work/live there + I am pretty sure every attractive person in San Francisco was in attendance. This event was also packed! So packed that I failed to take any pictures because the thought of reaching for my camera from my purse made me very nervous!
So this was not the outfit I started the day in…I spent my entire day staring at this dress and decided that since I WAS going to an event I needed to wear something new from the shop (insert my 2nd purchase of the day). So I threw it on + headed to the mission!
What I Wore:
Dress: Caralina K via Les Méchantes (in store only).
Shoes: Shoes: Paper Fox via Shoedazzle, Sterling
Sunglasses: Celine via Saks Off 5th (c/o), Retro Flared Sunglasses. Love this option from Celine here.
Caftans + sundaes are not necessarily a traditional match made in heaven, but starting next week they are!
I am very excited to share that Les Méchantes is opening our very first store at Ghirardelli Square (the land of ALL the ice cream sundaes) in San Francisco. In addition to a brand new store, we are also releasing a brand new collection of caftans from our private label. I am so excited to share this collection and think that we have really stepped up our game!

Yes, my hair has managed to get shorter and shorter this year. It is insane, but my poor hair is still suffering from the blue phase! However, lucky for me Nicole from Tailored Salon has decided to take my limp locks under her wing + help me get my hair back to normal (more to come on this process).
Now, let’s talk about this killer top from fashionista favorite brand, Reformation. Off the shoulder tops are a top trend this summer and while I normally try to stray away from styling to the trends, this is a trend that I am all about!
Will you be styling off the shoulder tops this summer?
