This weekend I got to hang out with two of my favorite city dwellers: Kathryn and Heather. Kathryn and I first met back in 2009, and I swear: her personality can warm up any Foggy City day. Both Kathryn (of Kathryn McCarron) and Heather (of Guevarra Arcega Clothing) are amazing fashion designers - Kathryn just landed her styles in the ah-mazing Dish store, and Heather, a fellow Hawai'i native just got picked up by an Oahu boutique! I couldn't be happier for them both!
The open studios at the Art Explosion (744 Alabama) is always such a treat: all the artists in the three story building open up their doors and let both visitors and buyers peruse, and get a glimpse into the inner world of their chosen craft. If you ever get a chance to visit their quarterly open studios, you must go! Chances are I will be there, "standing guard" of Heather's pocky sticks - with alternate motives, of course.

Lately I have been making an effort in mixing patterns and textures when dressing. I surprised myself when getting dressed - it seemed that everything somehow color coordinated! Being able to mix patterns, textures, and still have color harmony (as in similar, not complimentary) was something unexpected.
I am wearing: my new Lush dress, c/o Liv Fashion Boutique (if you visit and "like" their fan page, be sure to mention my blog!)
Vintage silk blazer
Knitted scarf given to me by my friend Jesse, for my birthday
Vintage leather Coach bag
Jessica Simpson boots
