A Poisonous Glamour

Thanksgiving 2016 is complex. It’s difficult to feel entirely thankful when so much in America is awol. There are many precious things to be grateful for, but it’s also important to recognize the suffering of minorities, Native Americans at Standing Rock, women, and anyone who identifies as other. This state of confusion brings to mind a juxtaposed legend, my dearly beloved Leigh Bowery: the beautified monster.

enhanced-31970-1411758030-6 I recently re-watched The Legend of Leigh Bowery documentary, and am feeling inspired by off-putting opulence, which I think can be a real driving force.

I recently dined at one of my favorite new restaurants, Christopher’s Kitchen in Palm Beach Gardens. They serve organic, plant based food that will blow your mind! I follow their restaurant on instagram, and was excited about this dish which can also accompany the perfect fall evening: sautéed shiitake mushrooms served over jasmine rice, grilled artichoke, roasted sweet potato served with truffle ketchup (What even is that? I must know!), grilled asparagus and almond coleslaw!

It’s also worth noting that they make a ridiculously tasty chocolate mousse pie, which is made from cacao, cashews, coconut, dates, vanilla, pecans, and sea salt. I want 500 more, but that might perhaps be a bit gluttonous…

 

Kiwis and Snowdrop Anemone

Spring is swinging our way- I can smell the Jasmine blooming as I walk through my neighborhood. Spring is my favorite season, it’s whimsical enough without the extremity of summertime heat. Fauna and foliage are at their best, avocado, grapefruit, lemons, and pineapple at their smoothest, and the breeze is just right.

As we shed our fall and winter armor, it’s time to take advantage of a Spring wardrobe. My favorite online spot for fashion, Shopbop, is having their last day of a fantastic sale. Take advantage while there is still time!

Stay Home on Black Friday

I hope all of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! Things have been rough for all of us, but this day is a time to reflect on what we DO have- what makes our lives more whole.

I am grateful for my loving, intelligent, creative and talented friends, my supportive family, for living in the beautiful and dynamic city of Los Angeles, California, and my sweet pup Mortimer, most of all.

With all of the hardships and hatred that our world is experiencing right now, I can only hope that each of us does our part to bring joy and compassion to others. I am most thankful for compassion and understanding amongst each other.

As I’m really not a fan of Black Friday and the madness that ensues around it, I’m happy to announce a great online sale with one of my partners, Shopbop. You can stay home and still receive discounts on your favorite inspiring designs.

Shopbop Sale

20151013_friendsfamily_01

Friends and family: Only 24 hours left to take advantage of Shopbop’s awesome sale! I’ve basically turned into an emo teenager, longing and pining for some of these fabulous designs. I’m also definitely having a beige and draping moment- maybe replicating sand dunes metaphorically? I hope Los Angeles gets with it and realizes it’s October so I can bury myself under a cowl-neck sweater and take a bath in lavender tea, perhaps.

I’m posting some of my favorite fall looks available through the site below!
