Clare Vivier and & Other Stories at Steve Alan Last Night

Yes, Meredith (my amazingly talented and wise beyond her years assistant ) and I went out last night.  Doing our thing as we do best.  Steve Alan (a shout out to Jeremy, the manager!) on La Brea was hosting a collab event of Clare Vivier and & Other Stories.  Three companies that I love, all wrapped up into one party!
Clare did a range of leather goods designed in her coveted style and eye catching colors.  They can be pre-ordered online next week with Steve Alan .  In 2 weeks, they will be on the & Other Stories site- additional bag styles and amazing loafers will be added to the mix.
Meredith, Clare V and I
I am ordering that fanny pack (sold out last night).  Its $85 and I love the fluorescent pink,  Perfect for my upcoming NYC trip in April.
Silverlake Backpack $195
Laurel Canyon Clutches $55
Griffith Leather Tassel $19
Monograming my purchase

Petaluma Double Pouch $45

My new biz are holder.

Could not resist taking a photo of these gals and their beautiful bouquets (swag from a Levi's party down the street) from  An app that delivers flowers in 90 minutes.

I have to have these Barbara Bui slip-on oxfords!  Another perfect accessory for NYC.  They have a platform foam sole.  Just what I need when I am clocking miles.  A less expensive version is here.

Meredith and I hopped next door to Odys & Penelope for food and wine.  A new spot that just recently opened on La Brea.  Amazing crostini with creamy crab!

So much happening for this coming spring.  Start making your wish list and get shopping.

Happy Weekend!

Introducing a new contemporary women's clothing line, Finery, based out of London.  ASOS and Topshop alums started the company wanting to fill the gap between highstreet fast fashion and designer, and that they did!  The collection is based around beautiful fabrics in modern, minimal designs at sharp price points.  The perfect equation!!

They have an online site as well as a London based experimental guide shop (like Bonobos).  In store, you can shop, touch and try on pieces but then order online and have your items shipped directly to you.  A new retail formula that seems be catching on quickly.

Finery offers UK sizing 6-18, the equivalent to US sizing 2-14.  Pay special attention to 'The Details' listed with each style so you can assure a good fit.  Free shipping to US is available on orders over $150, while returns are the responsibility of the purchaser.  You can even elevate yourself to be part of Fine Society, a VIP membership program with lots of bonuses.  Spend at least $400 every 6 months period and you receive:
   · 10% back in Finery Notes every time you shop
 · Sneak previews of new collections
   · Early access to sales
