This is another one of my go-to recipes. Super easy, and delicious. I’m sure the veggies could be substituted for anything, but here’s what I use:
- 1 bag red potatoes
- 1 bag brussel sprouts
- mixture of half olive oil, half balsamic
- salt & pepper
Put all of that in a baking dish, mix it up, and bake! Then, of course eat. And have some red wine.

I hope everyone’s weekend was great! Mine was spent making samosas and gimlets, hitting golf balls at the Presidio Golf course, hiking, eating sushi, and reading. It was definitely a good one, but now I’m exhausted and looking forward to the 4th of July weekend!

So believe it or not the silver dress worn underneath all of this was my NYE dress of ’08. I haven’t really worn it much since then, and even tried to sell it on Ebay with no luck. But I finallllly realized that I could make it a bit more casual by layering on top of it. And it was fun to have a little does of NYE in the middle of the year. So this is my reminder to you… if you liked it once you can probably remix it in a new way so that you will love it again. I know I definitely need that reminder.
This recipe was inspired by a friend who always seems to be finding recipes that add unique flavor to otherwise typical meals. You can follow her on twitter here.
Anyways, this is now one of my favorites. Here’s what you need:
Ok, now here’s what to do!
1. Soothsayer Turban – $178
2. Ribbon embellished Trilby – $50
3. Fallow Fedora – $338
4. Pop Flower – $75
5. Striped Sun hat – $58
I’m always wearing my sunglasses, but one thing I don’t really do is wear a hat. I think this needs to change. Especially since I seem to have a special knack for burning my nose and getting sunglass tans. The hats above will do everything from preventing burnt noses, to keeping faces hair free. Oh yea, and then that Pop Flower from Ban.do is just plain fun.
Happy first day of Summer!

I wore this to the Balenciaga and Spain show at the de Young Museum. I loved the show, and was inspired by this quote: ”Balenciaga treated fabric like a sculptor treats clay or marble, masterpieces cut with scissors, sculpted in fabric colored by an artist’s fantasy.” —Eric Billeter, 1970
He somehow managed to create modernist flat planes of fabric that don’t fall flat when it seems as though they should, while at the same time mastering intricate tasseled, and ruffled pieces with extreme detail. I was personally drawn to the more experimental and modern dresses such as this wedding gown:
Painting and drawing most of my life, I’m not sure why I don’t experiment with my nails too often. I usually just go for the solid color, and that’s it. Basta, as I like to say. (Although I do remember painting my and my sister’s nail as turkeys for Thanksgiving as kids… does that count? ha.)
But with some inspiration from Cupcakes & Cashmere to use a little imagination, my nails are a bit more fun this week. Let me know if you try this out, or have any other nail ideas!
