Lanvin Fran Fringe Leather and Jersey Gloves $1285
There’s nothing sexier (and warmer!) than a great long pair of black leather gloves. We both have a go-to pair, but they don’t compete with these fabulous fringed ones from Lanvin. They definitely take “sexy” to a new level! Imagine wearing these with a little black dress and thigh-high boots… why not have a western meets New York nightlife theme to your look? We’re looking at anything fringe this fall and these are a great start. Next stop, a new Proenza Schouler PS1 mini fringed crossbody to match!

It was all about the flat this summer (Birks and Tevas, anyone?) and the trend isn’t going anywhere for fall—my feet definitely are not complaining! I’ve been seeing flats everywhere in New York and London street style shots, and I’m feeling an all white leather sneaker to dress down an embellished dress (this Common Projects pair is absolute perfection!) or a nice, slightly chunky menswear-inspired loafer for skinny jeans with a flash of ankle. When did flats become so sexy?

Fall definitely hit NYC this week—it came on us suddenly, but we couldn’t be more excited for leather jackets, dark nail polish, and layers on layers. But when we think about our fall wardrobes, there’s nothing more important than some great denim. A good skinny jean is an essential for chillier weather, and we love a slouchy chambray shirt or unexpected denim jacket when temps hit the 60s. We took a browse through our archives for some fall jean inspiration—get ready for fall denim!

My trip to San Francisco last week was a fabulously refreshing way to end the summer. I stayed with my friend (also named Rebecca!) and her husband in their apartment in The Mission, a super chic neighborhood with the cutest independent boutiques, coolest bakeries, and BEST restaurants. My introduction to the area was dinner at a local Puerto Rican food pop-up restaurant—I cannot express how amazing my creamy shrimp and rice was. Shoutouts to Tartine, Bar Tartine, Arizmendi, and Cream for also making my trip super yummy. Needless to say, if I ever move to San Fran, I’m living in The Mission and going out for every meal. At night, I got to see a bit of the nightlife scene there. I met up with my friend Shawn, a graffiti artist who is currently creating murals for local startups and businesses. It’s great to see childhood friends so successful and happy in what they’re doing.
Union Street is pretty cool. We spent half a day brunching and shopping there. Then after walking to along the Marina for a bit, we decided to spend the rest of our day in Sausalito. Sausalito is just a ferry ride away from San Fran, and the ride itself offers breathtaking views of Bay Bridge and the skyline. Of course, it also helped that we prepared a feast of cheese, fresh figs, and flatbread from the Ferry Building for the journey. Those views look 50x better when you’re downing artisan blue cheese on a clear day with seventies temperatures and no humidity! Sausalito is a bit touristy, but we explored the untouched roads above the main street. The houses are beautiful with great views of the marina—here’s hoping I can afford a vacation home there and an apartment in San Francisco someday. BIG DREAMS. In the meantime, I’ll just have to come visit my friends every year and crash with them. But really… every year, please.
