Resident Advisors Premiere: Banks, Chung, Camp

 Jamie Chung has been so on point with her fashion. Her effortless red wrap slip dress is Mason by Michelle Mason and she paired it with an updated Stuart Weitzman take on the Nudist heels, in platinum lamé, available at Nordstrom and ShopBop, all sparkly and chic. And I am massively jealous of her tan. I've done a couple rounds of fraxel this year and it means I have to hide out inside or under a huge sunhat. My skin looks fab, but so arctic.
And her purse...I mean, amazing. This Antik Batik clutch is perfection for any summer night or fun wedding accessory. Love.

I Heart Radio Awards: Swift, Camp, Snow

If there is an awards show, you know Taylor Swift will be there! She arrived at the IHeartRadio Awards in a beaded KaufmanFranco mini and Tamara Mellon heels, which I like, and a heavily banged blonde bob, which I don't. I think it might be the color of the blonde, it looks a little lifeless. I haven't seen her performance with Madonna, but I hear it was good?
For a fun show like this, I love that Anna Camp shook things up in this bright, bold mini dress by Three Floor.

DON Dishes: Apple Pecan Feta Spinach Salad

I've been having the best time in LA catching up with as many people I can over breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and drinks. Today I just wanted something light, fresh, and that wouldn't leave me with tons of leftover ingredients I'd have to trash when I leave town. Found this salad on Cooking Classy and it was everything I wanted at first bite.
Apple Pecan Feta Spinach Salad
10 oz baby spinach
3 small gala apples or 2 medium, cored and thinly sliced
1 cup pecans, toasted
4 oz feta cheese, crumbled (don't use the pre-crumbled stuff)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
12 oz bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
1/2 small red onion, sliced into thin strips (optional)

Maple-Cider Vinaigrette
(whisk all together and serve)
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
2 Tbsp pure maple syrup
2 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1. Place onion slices in a colander and run under warm water for about 10 seconds, tossing once, to remove harsh bite. Drain well.
2. In a large salad bowl toss together spinach, apples, pecans, feta, cranberries and red onion. 
3. Drizzle desired amount of dressing over salad and toss to evenly coat. Serve immediately after adding dressing.

All Dolled Up: Watson, Washington, Stanchfield, Young

 Emma Watson just gets better with age! How natural and gorgeous is she in A.L.C. while speaking on International Women's Day at the Facebook HQ in London? What a perfect, warm shade of brunette and just the right makeup to say she means business and is going to look good while conducting it. 
 Cropped pants aren't for me, but I love that she always takes a classic look and gives it her own youthful twist. Props to Watson!

Sandal Season

Are we all beyond ready for Spring at this point? I know outside of California there are plenty who just want to feel the sun on their skin already. I've been digging out my shorts, painting my fingers and toes in Easter egg pastels, and gearing up for weekends spent outside.  I'm especially into nude or light metallic sandals that elongate the leg or bright sandals that add flavor to very neutral looks. Think Yolanda Foster in her all-white ensembles. I wore these Sam Edelman sandals to my sister's engagement party last Friday for just a hint of sparkle.

All my favorite sandals below (plus one kickin' pair of Missoni Converse and one perfectly shiny pump), all from Nordstrom so free shipping and free returns FTW.

Oscars 2015: Reese, Emma, Rosamund, Gywneth

After a blissful week plus in Lake Tahoe, I just stepped in the door and am furiously seeking out photos to post and discuss with you. I wanted to start with Rosamund Pike, a woman who has pretty consistently disappointed me throughout awards season, then come back to absolutely slay in this rosebud Givenchy dress. That sculpted waist, the detailed reverse neckline, and the dramatic slit all made this a true Oscars arrival gown.  I won't talk about the shoes.
Reese Witherspoon, up for her second Oscar, was ladylike old Hollywood glam in this custom Tom Ford gown.
I love this look on her. She typically goes for a jewel tone with a defined waist and this changes it up while still highlighting her best features. I am in the minority in that I didn't like her hair. I wanted more volume on top and it would have been a winner. This felt purposefully flat to me.

amfAR NYC: Kendall, Karlie, Coco, Heidi

 Kendall Jenner took a shot at her sister Khloe's current favorite look, the slicked back hair, for the amfAR gala in New York. Her bold red Romona Keveza gown was finished off perfectly with shimmering gold Loubs that would have made Cinderella jealous. Kendall seems to be focused on her career and not the headlines her dad is grabbing for his transition into a woman. Have you guys seen season 1 of Transparent? I was watching it when the news about Bruce came out and the parallels are pretty interesting. Makes me wonder if he watched it and found some motivation to come out?

 Ivanka Trump is one of my favs on Instagram. She posts honest and candid snaps into her life as a mother, businesswoman, and wife, coming across as shockingly normal. She looked lovely in J.Mendel.
