    Dressed: On the Go

    October 15, 2017

    If you’ve been following our Instagram, you may have noticed that we’ve been taking a lot of weekend trips; Adrienne most recently went to Calistoga while Mary Ann was out in LA. It’s such a nice way to unwind from the work week, and take the opportunity to explore new places without venturing too far from home.

    We wanted to show how we pack for these weekend trips. We like to travel light, but we also don’t want to sacrifice style. Over the years, we’ve learned how to consolidate into the essential pieces we know would work well based on our destination.

    First, it’s important to look at your own closet and find the key items you reach for over and over again. Our wardrobes are filled with neutrals and basics, but we always include pops of color or accessories to keep the outfit interesting. By keeping the clothing in the more neutral territory, the possibilities to mix and match are endless.

    We always make sure to pack a pair of black jeans and a white shirt or two as. We don’t pack a lot of jewelry, but we think it’s nice to have one or two statement pieces like a necklace, earrings, and a watch. While Mary Ann doesn’t wear a lot of jewelry, she always makes sure she has a hat. Adrienne’s go-to accessory is sunglasses. 

    We also want to have clothing that can easily transition from day to night or can be pieced together with different items for a whole new look. The Everlane Slip Dress can be worn over a white t-shirt with boots during the day, and dressed up with a leather jacket and heels for a night out. You can also wear a sweater over the dress and sneakers for a day roaming through the city.

    Dressed: Fall Wishlists

    October 2, 2017

    We’ve been having hints of fall’s arrival with a bit milder temperatures, leaves slowly falling, and chillier mornings. Even with the weather’s slow transition from summer, that still doesn’t stop us from dreaming of the items that we want for the fall.

    Mary Ann’s list focuses on keeping it cozy. She’s been on a Sezane kick lately; the Alicia Coat is her central piece for the Fall. The ocre color is a bold statement among the more neutral tones for the season. Mary Ann is also looking for more oversized shirts to get comfortable in. She’s also a big fan of Girlfriend Collective leggings. If you haven’t heard of Girlfriend Collective, check them out now. Their mission falls directly in line with her beliefs.

    1. Everlane Relaxed Silk Shirt
    2. Madewell Sunday shirt
    3. Catbird cat eye sleep mask
    4. Madewell Bedtime Night Shirt
    5. Cabin Porn
    6. Sézane Alicia Coat
    7. Everlane Modern Loafer Mule
    8. Girlfriend Collective High Rise 3/4 Leggings

    Adrienne’s list is a reinvention of the classic staples with fresh details. She’s looking to update her closet with fewer, but better pieces that are able to easily transition between seasons. Adrienne purchased the ALLsaints Leather Balfern Jacket a few weeks ago, and it is a beautiful soft leather that will last a lifetime.

    1. Mejuri Beaded Hoops in Silver
    2. Mejuri Diamonds Stackable Ring
    3. Everlane Boxcut Tee in White
    4. Everlane Relaxed Silk Shirt in Burgundy/Bone

    Dressed: Rodebjer Spring 2018

    September 18, 2017

    I’ve been a big fan of Rodebjer since seeing their clothing over at Lexington Standard in San Francisco. Rodebjer is inspired by the people who do what they want; feminism, human rights, passionate people are a few choice words that can best describe their style. The Spring 2018 show during Stockholm fashion week is nothing short of their ideals. It was beautiful, uplifting, and wildly feminist.

    Their focus was to develop a collection to appeal to a diverse group of people; models were of various ages and backgrounds. Carin Rodebjer explained, “(I) wanted a collection to travel in age somehow…“so it began with youth and energy and drive, and then it went into something more sophisticated, mature, earthy at the end, with those fluid shapes and tonal looks.”

    I think I’m somewhere between youthful energy and earth tonal adult. I think I always will be.

    Dressed: Sézane

    September 13, 2017

    Jacket Sézane x LADP

    We’ve always been obsessed with French fashion and the way French women dress: effortlessly chic and timeless. We love their simplicity and how the look is carried in the details. Want to flatter us? Tell us that we look very French. Or even a little French. It would make our day.

    Sézane has been an online favorite for quite some time now with their classic Parisian style coupled with a Lisa Bonet bohemian feel. They offer four main capsule collections throughout the year with monthly releases to complete the collection.

    Ever since we saw the Sézane x Madewell capsule collection back in 2014, we’ve been big fans of the Parisian label. With the opening of Sézane’s first U.S store in New York, we wanted to celebrate and share the pieces we have been eyeing and loving.

    Dressed: White Rabbit

    September 6, 2017

    We’ve focused a lot on sustainable fashion highlighting brands that are changing the game in the industry. We wanted to push that thought further and look into the clothing we (often) keep hidden from the world…our underthings!

     White Rabbit caught our attention as their values align with our desire to have fewer but better things. As we continue to discuss and evolve our styles and closets, we started to feel the same way about our underwear drawer.

    The bras and panties are of high quality bamboo and rayon which leaves less of a carbon footprint in comparison to fast fashion products.The conscious design of the bra is apparent and their use of high quality sustainably sourced fabrics is impressive. We did our research and found that White Rabbit’s price points are affordable and comparable to the big brand companies. 

    We tried the Prince (Ann bralette and Prince Cheeky), and Minetta sets (Minetta balconette and Jane Bikini) – right away, it felt right on our skin. 

    What makes the Ann bralette different from others is that it has adjustable straps. The cups of the bralette also has a mesh lining to provide extra coverage and shape. The lace lining at the bottom provides a beautiful delicate touch. We like how the lace design isn’t throughout the bra, as the smooth cups ensure a clean look underneath even the thinnest of t-shirts.

    The Minetta balconette is sexy and confident while making room for comfort. The balconette provides solid support on the days you don’t need all of the coverage. The Minetta is soft to the touch, and provides a smooth shape under a variety of tops. This is definitely a bra that can be worn through the day and night.

    The Prince Cheeky and Jane Bikini stay in place and feels cool against the skin. We also noticed that it doesn’t show visible seams through our clothes. Overall, both of these sets makes us feel comfortable, sexy and good about the underthings we’re wearing.

    White Rabbit is  made in Mexico City in a women’s only factory! The team made it a point to ensure that workers are paid fair wages, working conditions are safe, and employees have benefits and time off. Moreover, their core focus is to empower women whether it’s the customer buying the product or the woman making it. Mariana Hernandez, co-founder of White Rabbit stated,“We want to change the conversation from underwear being something we use to please men and rather be something that makes us feel comfortable and confident no matter what the day brings.”

    If you’re like us and looking for beautifully designed, sustainable, and woman focused lingerie, White Rabbit is it. Sign up for their email list to get 10% off. We’re huge fans and will continue to support their products. Check them out now!
