Cool Threads: Sam & Lavi

Sam & Lavi’s young contemporary line manages to bring elements of sophistication to playful and often minimalist silhouettes. They’re choice of prints is top-notch and I’m sure you can agree, there’s nothing like a beautiful floral or abstract ensemble to add life to your look (and mood!) These ones are so nice. I love the style of their line that seems perfect for so many occasions. Buy the dress and the party will come is my (super deep) philosophy ;-)  Thoughts?

the law of least effort

If there’s anyone who knows how to capture the essence of a moment through beautiful photography, it’s Bruce Weber. His photographs feel natural and easy, a characteristic of true talent. When you’re aligned with expressing your innate gifts in the world, it’s a practice in one of the seven spiritual laws of the universe: The law of least effort. This principle of no resistance adheres to the intelligence of nature. A blade of grass doesn’t try to grow. A flower isn’t forcing itself to bloom. Maybe that’s why his work feels so harmonious.  I’m curious about what you think your unique gift is for the world?

proenza schouler: on the money

Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez of Proenza Schouler certainly haven't lost touch with what a cool girl wants to wear. Chalked up as "american sportswear," their collection of polos, blouses, midi skirts and dresses are far from boring. Offering effortless necklines while pairing graphic prints with graphic prints and fringed shoes with crocheted skirts, these fellas managed to achieve a unique and exciting perspective on making basics new. Sounds right on the money to me.
