    Dressed: Mara Hoffman SS 2018

    November 13, 2017

    Mara Hoffman’s Spring Summer 2018 collection is lit.

    This collection switched gears from previous lines by putting a focus on high-quality minimally processed fabrics. The prints are more subdued, but the colors are richer. Body-con is out, and midi dresses with draping are in. The change has definitely made me giddy.

    I’ve been a big fan of Mara Hoffman for some time now. Not only as a designer, but also as a person with a platform. She is keenly aware of the harms of the fashion industry on a environmental and human level.  Mara frequently uses models of varying body types and ethnicities. She was one of the first designers where I actually felt the models had my body type. It’s refreshing to see a high end clothing line, for once, humanize the experience for its customers…and makes them go, “hey she looks like me.” It feels even better knowing that the clothes that make me feel good also does good.

    Check out a few of our favorites from the collection below:

    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 
    5. Aritizia Quincy Jacket in Mocha
    6. Stuart Weitzman Grandy Bootie in Velvet Gilt Gold

    11. Allbirds Women’s Wool Runners

    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

    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.

    Check out our picks after the jump! Continue reading…
