For those who will be in Los Angeles for the May 7-9 events and would like to attend, registration is here here. Looking forward to sharing and highlighting event coverage not only here on the blog, but also on Instagram and Twitter. Stay tuned for much, much more! #LCDQLA
Supermodel Karlie Kloss shares her first NYC apartment, located in the West Village, on a quiet street just a few blocks from the Hudson River. She enlisted interior designer Nate Berkus to help her create the chic look go her very first home.
The goal was to create a look that reflects her style, in relating to fashion, to mix and match the same way she does with clothes.
One of her favorite spots, she says, is the kitchen – where she has a passion for baking cookies. I love the multi-level / stairs to kitchen with the paned glass and tiny dining banquette.

This past weekend I had the pleasure of attending the 16th Costume Designers Guild Awards in Beverly Hills, CA. The event happens to be produced by a high school friend of mine who works for Jumpline, producers of the annual awards show.
On display and on loan from a costume house, were Dorothy’s red heels from the Wizard Of Oz – so neat to see in person! (And apparently my friend Deme had these on her coffee table before returning – ha!)
We were fortunate to have access to the VIP reception (celeb hangout), and I happen to catch actress Amy Adams in a flash.
Typhanie and I had fun taking selfies in the glamorous old school mirrors at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, where the event took place.
We also saw Mad Men actress, Kiernan Brennan Shipka, mingling before the awards ceremony.

The next day, I attended a post event brunch and panel discussion with several of the recognized and awarded costume designers.
The event was hosted by Lacoste.
On display were fashion designs by FIDM students representing various film genres.
After the symposium was a rooftop brunch (at Siren Studios) with views of Hollywood.
Shirley and I enjoying a gorgeous February day in LA (a glimpse of the Hollywood sign was in our backdrop).
And a very fun surprise: seeing our friend artist Gregory Siff art on the ground level entrance of Siren Studios.

This past week I attended a special event at Kelly Wearstler’s flagship boutique on Melrose for the celebration of the book, “In The Spirit Of Beverly Hills” published by Assouline. In attendance was both Kelly Wearstler and Nancie Clare, author of the book. The amazing photos in this post were taken by my friend and photographer, Marcia Prentice.

As I was browsing Pinterest, I came across this picture of a charming powder room. When I clicked on the source it took me to a blog who’s writer is a Newport Beach based blog. Newport Beach is my hometown and the above image is quintessential beachy, evoking the homes of where I grew up. While it may be winter across the rest of the nation, here in Southern California it currently remains sunny and 70′s. The blue hues like in the above seem to fit in well here, year round.
