driving through culver city’s arts district is a weekly occurrence since i love visiting cognoscenti coffee (delicious cortados!), but this time after noticing their eye-catching storefront, i finally stepped into gramercy york. an airy space filled with carefully curated finds of indie & well known designers, like clare vivier, malin & goetz, wolverine, it is a welcoming change to this ever booming street. the inviting centerpiece table houses gifts, housewares & an enviable selection of leather goods to make any accessories junkie swoon. i had to snag this pair of intoxicating candles from long beach’s pomme frites candle co. & couldn’t stop sniffing them on the ride home. keep this boutique on your radar westside…

v-day love…

v day love v day love 2i can’t help it, i love valentine’s day (the stuff, not the pressure!) & all the copious amounts of pink & red everywhere. pinterest is a dream right now & these are some of my favorites. scanning through these pins are inspiring & perhaps these colors just help lighten up my mood!

black | noir…

i can’t escape that i adore black & that half of my closet is total darkness. it always feels right; chic, slimming, easy, sophisticated, & cool. i don’t mess with a good thing. i can’t even explain my fixation with porcelain black’s (singer, artist, & now designer) studded bucket bag from her new line noir by porcelain black. it’s the one thing i’ve been looking to add to my wishlist & it’s beyond affordable! and if someone could just gift those acne boots under my well lit tree, i’d just dieeee. hello christmas gift to me? yup…

cuyana…

i love when i come across a new product line, but more importantly when it has a brilliant story to tell. upon, seeing these gorgeous bags & accessories (discovered them on instagram!), i had to find out more about the unique women behind this innovative brand! karla gallardo & shilpa shah are the founders of cuyana, a san francisco start-up, that believes in sourcing quality products from talented artisans & giving back to support the development of water projects. what’s better than shopping & paying it forward! i definitely have my eyes on that beautiful tote, but that quilted bag has stolen my heart (how chic is that little number?) & you won’t believe the prices!
