Blank Slate

I think of wearing white (or black for that matter) as a blank slate—it's obviously a staple, a color you can build on, and something that to me, is seasonless. I say phooey to those who say no white after Labor Day—that's bananas! I think we all know that is an antiquated sentiment. Hellllllo, have you heard of winter white!!??

And just like wearing all black is a no brainer, wearing all white offers that kind of ease too. Lately I have been really on the terry sweat short train and love these white Free City ones as well as these cream Mother ones that I paired with this square neck crop. Elevated sporty! This crisp, puff sleeve white dress is from The Frankie Shop and while I have it paired with a chunky gold chain and fluffy slides, it can also be mellow if paired with a denim chore jacket plus a Birk or a high top sneaker when the weather turns.
Some other white staples in my arsenal are: this Frankie Shop muscle tank with exaggerated shoulder, these  Chanel high tops, this Bottega Veneta braided bag, and these Celine low tops with a hint of forest green.
But other (more affordable) shoe options are the classic Vans Sk8 Hi Top, the Gola Coaster, the Onitsuka Tiger Lawnship, and of course, the Stan Smith.

Show me your Flare

We’ve been mom jean-ing for a few seasons now and I am feeling like it’s time for some FLARE again. Flares originated in the 60s / 70’s, took flight in the 80s, and definitely made an appearance in the early aughts. Those early decades all featured the high-waisted flare (which I personally prefer), while the early 00s specialized in the low-waisted style which feels a little passé. I recently pulled out my flare jeans and was reminded how much they elongate the leg and look great with a heel.

Chatting with Elyse Walker

When she decided to open her first store in 1999 in Los Angeles, Elyse Walker set out to create a retail experience that prided itself on impeccable customer service and superb selection. She wanted to create a store that harkened back to the places of business that she loved while growing up on the east coast—places that were simply known by the proprietors first or last name and that were always synonymous with a choice shopping experience.
