Everyone remembers the scene in Sex & the City where Carry and Berger had the scrunchy argument, Carry was right at the time, no self-respecting woman would be caught dead wearing a scrunchy. But times have changed, women now more than ever are taking better care of their hair. With the pandemic in full-swing we are fighting anxiety, stress all which lead to hair-loss. I suffer from Alopecia Areata and have struggled with the idea of leaving the house wearing my silk scrunchy by Slip. Guess what? They come in assorted colors and I finally started wearing them out on my errands. Why not? They protect my hair, scrunchies it seems aren’t just for sleeping anymore.
I never thought of myself as a lover of prints, unless we were talking about YSL leopard. But I fell-in-love with John Singer Sargent’s paintings of his sisters and niece draped in paisley shawls. A few pieces I am in-love with are from Etro fall 2020. Naturally these pieces are out of my current budget, but one can remain hopeful. This post is about Art meeting fashion, it’s inspiration and a pleasant distraction from the pandemic. Etro is a fashion house that can best be described as stealth wealth, investment pieces that can be worn with a simple t-shirt and jeans to cashmere pieces you will love to live in. Here’s to beauty.
Recently on Instagram I saw a picture of Karla Martinez de Salas (Who I follow by the way) and fell in-love with her Tibi Tunic. This is the perfect tunic to wear this spring/summer and it’s available in a variety of colors. It’s also a fresh take on the basic white shirt.
Liking darker colors, I prefer the Black and Navy. The price point is reasonable too!
I have various fashion/beauty blogs I read on a daily basis, let’s just say I’m obsessed with great ideas. I look to women in general for inspiration. SJP comes to mind, and I’ll always read her interviews and while doing that this morning I came across a quote that speaks truth.
When I’m getting dressed, though, I just think about myself—I put on what makes me feel good when I walk out the door. Don’t you feel your best when you simply feel like yourself? And you’ve stopped trying to dress like one of your friends or a colleague or the way your mother told you to dress growing up, or what some magazine says is a ‘trend’? – SJP, for WhoWhatWear
Personally that’s when I feel comfortable and good about myself, even on the weekends when I’m running around without makeup.
How about you?

Well we both mutually commented on the shoes we were trying on. The conversation flowed easily, but that’s what happens when you get women together in the shoe department.
I loved the details of her olive green cargo pants and their silhouette, but what I really noticed that morning was that San Franciscans adopted the uniform of running around chic in black and army/olive green,Très chic!

I was literally speechless when I saw this photo and realized why hadn’t I thought to roll up my sleeves higher on my white dress shirt?
I love this look, so clean, classic and elegant. See how she jazzed it up by adding a fun and colorful necklace, but kept the look casual by wearing her hair up in a polished bun?
Thank you for the inspiration!
My sister Dora came home excited to show me her most recent purchase, a Cuyana Alpaca Oversized Sweater, and I instantly fell in-love with the brand.

Lately I’ve been obsessed with ponchos and recently decided that it was time I added some pattern to my wardrobe. I haven’t seen any on the streets of San Francisco yet, but hopefully soon.
They make amazing layering pieces over a favorite coat, and add detail to leather pants.
Plus they are the perfect traveling companion, they fold neatly into your handbag or carry on.
I selected a few styles that I’m dreaming about.
I was drawn to her urban aesthetic, the rich textures and details of her attire.

The details are what speak to me, now this is denim worn right.
Thank you Dora for Running Around Chic!
I love ballet flats, and the ones that seem to fit me the best are the one’s from London Sole. I have like twenty pairs, and some are duplicates.
They are comfortable, long-lasting chic shoes that go with everything.
Which do you prefer a chic ballet flat or heels?
