The DVF Loves Roxy capsule is almost here, and Kelia and Monyca wear [and sell] the bikinis well. I was able to sneak a peak at the collection last Fall, and it is so darn cute. Both Roxy and DVF have blended their individual identities well to create special pieces.

Watch Diane share her inspiration here and pick up the collection on 3/7.


Well, that looks pretty nifty. I saw this piece in store the other day, and was immediately drawn to it, probably because it has so many bells and whistles. The store associates made my friend try it on, then took a picture of her it in to show its reflectivity. She glowed like a super hero, so cool. There seems to be mixed reviews on it, but it seems like a matter of preference. I’d say it is heavier than I’d prefer for running, and it also costs about a dollar per degree of reflectivity. To each his own.

Available at Lululemon.

+ ‘Tis the season: Girl Scout cookies are here! And, boy, do we have plenty.

+ A rare day working on the weekend: wrapping up a season today and jumping into the next one tomorrow.

+ A great piece on ESPN about Michael Jordan as he celebrates his 50th birthday.

+ Another article: If you didn’t catch Suzy Menkes buzzed about (and well done) piece on the “circus of fashion,” bloggers, street style, etc, here it is.

+ After nearly four years battling cancer, the 8 year-old daughter of my church‘s founding pastor passed away this weekend. Daisy’s battles and ongoing strength was a  such a huge source of inspiration, and I’m sure her story will continue to be spread love and hope for others. Her blog link has had a home on this site since its inception; I’ll be keeping it up for the remainder of the week for those who are curious. Read more here.

One of the latest additions to my book collection is Lizzie Garrett Mettler’s Tomboy Style, based on the popular blog. Being a tomboy isn’t so simply defined as dressing in menswear or of masculine styles, but of possessing a certain sense of confidence, spirit, and edge. It’s not a very big book, but Mettler does a wonderful job highlighting each representation of the tomboy: the rebel, the jock, the adventuress, et cetera.

Available here.

+ Another weekend full of family time: game night and more time with the little ones.

+ Iced over roofs, icy cars, & frozen lawns: lots of cold nights and mornings lately.

+ So I tried to avoid this guy as long as possible, but I finally caved. So pleased to have this Free People jacket in my wardrobe.

Weekend happenings//


The weekend was full of family events: celebrating the life of a wonderful grandfather, catching up with out-of-town relatives, playing with the kiddie cousins, and a birthday celebration thrown in.

How’d everyone’s Super Bowl go? The game definitely wasn’t a let down, which is easy when you don’t prefer either team. For the extra stuff, I found the commercials as a whole just good, not great, and the halftime merely okay. Perhaps my expectations were too high…?

+ Finally saw Django Unchained over the weekend. Two things I love about it: 1. it was partly filmed in my hometown of West Hills, & 2. the soundtrack is absolutely killer.

+ Excited for these two upcoming movies: Mood Indigo & Inside Llewyn Davis.
