Editors Notes : Petra Flannery

There must have been a reason for our love affair with Emma Stone. Along side of her quirky, strong, silly beautiful demure. She is always dressed to perfection, a little tomboy a little gamine but always on point. We don't think we've scene a red carpet look that hasn't made the best dresses list, and into further investigation we owe our praise and admiration to this woman Petra Flannery. 
Styling clients is anything but an easy task, yet Flannery is able to attach the clients personality to all the looks she is able to create. Referencing old vintage magazines and books for styling inspiration, there is no wonder The Hollywood Reporter put Flannery (along with her client Emma Stone) on the cover of their “25 Most Powerful Stylists” issue.

10|20 Pulling it together : Spring Ensemble

April 02, 2013

Pulling an ensemble together. One staple that will definitely be in our thought this spring and summer is that of the timeless kimono top. Big, long draped tees and tanks are wonderful for layering, as well as coverups for summer. If you find a neutral you love, get them all, not all tees are made the same and they can be very elusive even though they seem to be everywhere. Spring can still be chilly and  beautiful scarves are never at a loss even on summer nights. Spring draws us to our beloved sandals but we can still rock our pumps for a boho rocker-chic aesthetic, when accompanied by our leathers.

Lessons In : the panama hat

April 01, 2013

My father has had his panama hat for as long as I can remember, yet it wasn't until I rediscovered it last weekend that I realized after some research how incredible these hats really are. My father has had his forever and forever timeless is the style, yet after searching for just the right feel I became aware of how particular and (expensive) these hats are. The panama hat is all about the grade, yet there is no universal grading scale. The terms Fino Fino or Super Fino is what one would most likely be looking for, a weave so fine that it can bend fold and pop right back into shape. These beauties can run up to $7,500 (eheheh). Yet after researching the lesser not so Fino grade hats, that have with a stiff weave and will most likely break, unravel, and last one season. We are opting for the fino fino grade that will be timelessly in your spring/summer ensamble for years as well as something to pass down.
