Color has become my new norm while in LA.. how could it not? The sun gives me life and the warm weather makes it fun to wear anything (including black!). The pink wall of the Paul Smith store has brightened up this block of Melrose for quite some time now (I remember seeing it years ago when I lived in LA) and every time I pass by, even now, I can’t help but feel light, playful and SASSY.

Melrose Place has been one of my favorite streets, even before Alfreds Coffee, Chloe and APC moved in to make it one of the hottest retail block in LA. Isabel Marant, The Row and the newly opened Apartment by The Line are oases in the LA shopping scene. Also high on the list: Ten Over Six, Just One Eye and Rick Owens on La Cienega. Any others I should add to the list?

I had such a yearning to return to LA that I decided to jet out before the holiday and get some sun and r&r. There wasn’t much of either (it was warming in NYC than in LA for most of the trip!) but the pace, people and what sun did show up helped recharge my end-of-year exhaustion.

On the itinerary: Visit a few of my favorite and new shops (Restoration Hardware Studio, Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, Ten Over Six, Just One Eye, American Rag, the new Clare Vivier, RETROSUPERFUTURE..), eat eat and eat some more (Republique, The Nice Guy, Real Food Daily, Gjelina, Gracias Madre, Zinque, my beloved Urth, Earthbar, Boa), hike (Culver Kenneth Hahn, Malibu, Runyon), run to and from Santa Monica, and see old and meet new friends.

Its hard to believe that we’re well into December and I can walk around in just a sweater. It feels like we’ve skipped winter entirely and heading straight into spring with the balmy 55 degree weather.

I designed these pants and, as with most things in my closet, I had to get them made in every color. Names like ‘cloud’ or ‘misty grey’, even ‘aluminum snow’ come to mind for these pair.. The glen plaid fabric is a lightweight wool and it moves just how I wanted them to, making them one of my favorites.
