Cape

Back to reality but not for long: looking forward to a warm-weather family getaway with Lucia later this week! Hope you’re having a wonderful week and thank you for stopping by!

To the Nutcracker

9to5chic-jumpsuit-trench-19to5chic-jumpsuit-trench-29to5chic-jumpsuit-trench-3 My Christmas present to Lucia were tickets to the SF Ballet’s Nutcracker last week. We had a little family dinner date near War Memorial Opera House and walked to the ballet. Lucia loved it. And I loved it. The production was absolutely beautiful (and I had no idea the very first time Nutcracker was performed in the US was here in San Francisco by the SF Ballet). What a treat.

Wearing two of my big-time scores from last year’s designer sales; I found the jumpsuit at the final markdown for 75% off and I found the trench for 80% off. I love a good deal – and now is when all of the stores have made their final markdowns. For high end designer finds, my favorite sale sections are at: Matches (here), Net-a-porter (here), LuisaViaRoma (here), Ssense (here), Moda Operandi (here). Nordstrom and Barneys New York have amazing finds too but many of the best styles go early.

Happy New Year and thank you so much for visiting!

Bright and Cheery

ann-taylor-blouse-1ann-taylor-blouse-2ann-taylor-blouse-3 Ending the year on a bright and cheery note in this fancy floral blouse (under $30 on sale!). And because it’s New Year’s Eve, let this be my New Year’s (silly) resolution: more color in my wardrobe! I always lean towards my go-to neutrals but it’s so refreshing to wear color! Especially on a cold(ish) winter day in the Bay.

Wishing you the most colorful, happy, fulfilling 2017 ahead. I’m so thankful for your support, messages and comments! It means the world to me. Cheers to 2017!
