What we’re packing for Memorial Day Weekend

Memorial Day weekend is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited to finally break out the summer goods! In case you need a little help figuring out what to wear, here’s what we’re packing.

MDW 1

If you’re going away for the weekend, you definitely need to take some Baja East with you —  actually, on you. Whether you have a long car ride ahead or a flight to catch, the Baja East boys will keep you comfy and chic. It really makes traveling significantly better when you’re wrapped in the finest cashmere. I love the laid-back cool style of these Nili Lotan bermuda shorts and since we are traveling here, Alexander McQueen sneakers and tote – it fits everything. And of course, no summer weekend getaway is complete without Illesteva glasses.

For chilly nights by the beach, an Elder Statesmen hooded poncho is a must-have (more styles available in store). I know I just said Baja East’s cashmere was the finest, but let’s be real, it’s too hard to choose. You’ll be so cozy in this, you may just never take it off. R13 boy skinny denim for a little slouch, Proenza Schouler backpack, and Robert Clergeie shoes complete the outfit for a look that is casually chic.

Saturday has finally rolled around and you’ve got a BBQ to go to. You know, the one you’ve been waiting forever for. You’re looking to celebrate summer’s arrival in the cutest outfit ever, and this Alaia set is it. Something about it really tugs at my heart strings. It’s got a nostalgic Jane Birkin vibe to it, but also a timelessly modern feel. You could pretty much wear any shoes with it, but these Laurence Dacade sandals add a really fun touch. You’ve got a little bit of height, but not too much that you’re uncomfortable. No outfit is complete without some Illesteva shades and a Chanel fedora for good measure.

For the next days spent in the sun, Band of Outsiders and Baja East have you covered. I love the versatility of these pieces, you can wear each pretty much anywhere and everywhere. Update your summer accessories with these Sacai flatform birkenstocks and Givenchy Antigona tote.

That’s it! You’re all set for the weekend.

Introducing Lynn Ban

The latest addition to our fine jewelry family, Lynn Ban, has captured the likes of everyone from Rihanna to Madonna to Taylor Swift and Beyonce – just to name a few. Although only just entering the jewelry design business a few years ago, it is no surprise her creations have caught on like wildfire. I’ve never seen anything else that even compares to her designs. Ban’s pieces are thought-provoking. Take the lace inspired rings she is wearing on her (your) right middle finger, for example.

The idea is to wear them all together (two on each finger) as if they’re gloves, but are just as special on their own. When it comes to modern designs that are edgy yet classic enough to wear everyday, Lynn Ban really knows what she’s doing. Come check out her collection before it’s all gone!

In Motion with Sacai

I love clothes that have movement to them, so it’s no surprise how much I love Sacai. Everything for the most part has some sort of swing effect. And if you ask me, there are few things better than a seemingly plain looking shirt that is actually pleated to perfection once you turn around.

Karl and the Chanel Factory

I imagine being at Chanel’s Cruise show in Seoul would have been much like visiting Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory – you know, wildly colorful and totally drool worthy. Peep below for some of my favorite looks and shop the collection in store come December!
