my fashion blogger inspiration

do you have a favorite fashion blogger? i do! i do! i do! lately i’ve been so obsessed with the super cute and stylish Swedish blogger Columbine Smille. i follow her blog regularly and really wish I could’ve been in Stockholm for her Topshop collaboration. her Isabel Marant knock-off wedge sneakers by Topshop would’ve been my top pick!

it turns out we own the same neon pink sweater by Zara so this outfit was completely inspired by her. it’s too bad that i don’t also own her black spider web velvet slipper flats by Charlotte Olympia though 😉

born to be brad book signing

i am still so giddy from meeting mr. Brad Goreski last nite. the hubby and i headed over to the Black Fleece (by Brooks Brothers) store on Fillmore St to meet the man himself. the line wasn’t too bad and we were greeted with delicious hor d’oeurves, wine and even cute bow tie shaped cookies by Elenis NYC as we waited to get our books signed.

my favorite moment of the evening was getting Brad to take a deadpanning picture with me and he did! he was so into it that he jotted down #deadpanning to check out my other pictures on Instagram. my other favorite moment was when he said “how cute are you” and then complimented on my outfit!!! (blushing)

sunday in sonoma

it definitely felt like summer in April this weekend! to take advantage of it, we spent the day in Sonoma with my folks — lunch at the Fremont Diner for some burgers and fries followed by an afternoon wine tasting at the beautiful Scribe Winery.

the fashion world of jean paul gaultier

my friends and i planned a visit to the de young museum on saturday to check out the amazing Jean Paul Gaultier haute couture collection: from the sidewalk to the catwalk. if you’re in SF and haven’t seen it, you must go – at the very least for the talking mannequins!

style twins

i was so excited to see and catch up with one of my sweet, fashionista twinsies this week! she just got back from an amazing trip to south america with her hubby and decided to make a quick trip to SF from LA. she’s such a style expert (check her out at bussbuss.com) that my matching outfit was literally inspired by hers 🙂 and to our surprise (or not), we noticed we even have identical iPhone covers! enjoy our Instagram pics and happy friday the 13th!
