Anne’s Favorite Five (give or take!) vol 1.

Often in the shop the question directed to me is: “What are you loving right now?” Well having had the shop for 17 years, at this point I’ve become very selective with what comes home with me (especially since we live in a one room apt now!) However, there are ALWAYS about 3 (or 4, or 5, or 6…) things that I think are MUSTS!! This week I introduce our newest pieces of what I think is well-done, wearable, delicious, well-fitting etc etc etc!! I personally OWN all these pieces and LOVE LOVE LOVE them!!

The BEST pencil skirt I’ve had in awhile. Just a little more interesting than black. Constructed of the stretch jersey that Butter by Nadia is famous for. Super flattering, totally versatile!

Hi-low cotton/cashmere sweater with leather sleeve trim from Mason. SEXY! Michelle doing anything with leather will get my attention every time!! Perfect light weight: I’m wearing it already!

Mother denim delivering the most comfy fitted skinny in the shop. Here in “Grand Sophie” which is like a light bluish black. Totally sexy. I got these because until lately I really haven’t been a big wearer of black but these seem a little softer, more subtle…

Crown Jewel henley is DELICIOUS! I swore off henley tees many years ago (not sure why…) but this one jumped into my arms on my trip to Fred Segal in Los Angeles and we’ve since ordered and reordered 3 times here at the shop!! Cotton/modal/lycra. Shape holds so well I can wear it twice without it looking stretched.

Enter: our little gems from Mei Vintage. I must confess I don’t yet have this one but I’m sure I’ll buckle within a month and order one for myself! Made in California of vintage kimono fabric and leather with a detachable chain. Perfect little bag to wear day or night!!

Lastly, Fab Buckle booties from Argila. Did a big debate with myself and wasn’t sure i could rationalize another bootie but yes, THEY ARE DIFFERENT!!! I needed them. I’m wearing (ie:loving) them right now…

what we’ve been up to…
