Rescue Me

“Mommy, is that Diego’s Rescue Pack?” my three-year-old asked, pointing to a favorite Chloe whipstitched Marcie bag. Though it doesn’t transform into a hang glider, he might be onto something.

Bootie Call

You can burn my house,

Steal my car,

Drink my liquor from an old fruitjar,

Do anything you want to but, honey,

Don’t step on my new suede boots!

Super excited about my new Chloe ankle boots—a Valentine’s present from Mr. Foodinista. But if theses don’t do it for you, here’s a little something to get your toes tapping this morning.

 

 

B is for Breakfast, B is for Bags

The other morning I met a friend for breakfast at BLD—Breakfast Lunch Dinner—restaurant on Beverly. The ricotta blueberry pancakes and fried egg sandwich with gruyère here are legendary. Their coffee arrives in a silver French press, and has to be some of my favorite restaurant coffee around. I love it. This last time, I went a marginally more virtuous route than my beloved fried egg sandwich and got the house-smoked salmon scramble.

But the most delicious aspect of this week’s visit to BLD were the two incredibly chic women sitting next to us speaking what sounded like some sort of Chinese dialect, each with a white Goyard St Louis tote casually slung over her respective chair.

In addition to the matching Goyards and Cartier love bracelets, one woman was wearing a pair of leopard-print Tori Burch Reva ballet flats, which I’ll forgive her, because she was also wearing this gray Chloe sweater jacket I’ve been lusting after (in another life, that is). Her companion was wearing a lovely little lightweight Marc Jacobs-y khaki jacket, white jeans and these beautiful blue Chloe peep-toe sandals. (Someone has a teeny tiny Chloe fixation.)

Tiny Baubles

These Chloé flats are one of my favorite pairs of shoes, and they are miserably snug post baby, but I’m never giving them up. I love the baubles on top. They sort of remind me of the shoe equivalent of a coupe of Champagne or cava

Sunny Outlook

I can’t decide if I love or hate that it was 88 degrees today. While the already slim window to wear cashmere in LA continues to narrow, I’m going with love because it provides opportunity to wear my new “old-lady” shades from Chloé. A couple months ago, I finally faced the music that I need prescription sunglasses, so my husband got me these Chloé Mimosa square sunglasses at Persol on Via Rodeo for my birthday in olive/gold, and the fine gentlemen at Persol took care of the prescription lenses. The frames are sort of ’70s in the very best way, and I love being able to actually see while driving on a sunny day—like today.  

Update 1/13/09, from my friend Lizzie in Chicago, who writes: I can’t decide if I love or hate the 10 degree weather outside with wind that chaps your face in an instant. I’m going with hate because it provides opportunity to wear my new capilene long underwear under my cords…while inside.
