diani living: Buying
By dianiliving | Published December 22, 2012
As a small business owner, I love supporting local businesses exclusively, whether it’s a little coffee shop, a place to buy pastries or my favorite book store, Chaucer’s. In a world that’s becoming more and more homogenized, it’s so important to hold on to all the things that make your town special and unique. I’m proud to say that I bought all my Christmas presents from local businesses in my hometown, Santa Barbara. So this weekend, if you have more gifts to buy, go local! Happy shopping!! Ho Ho Ho.

Before I head out for another day of buying at LA Fashion Week, I wanted to share what Elizabeth & James are up to for spring 2013. Their collection is such a well executed balance of clean and textural with an Indian flavor. I’m sold!

Designer Helmut Lang has expanded with a collection of super clean and easy-to-wear pieces that still embody minimalist elegance. The collection called Helmut, has some of the best casual jackets on the market and I’m excited to bring them to DIANI for spring 2013.

From animal prints to stripes, winkle picker toes to chunky ankle straps and buckles, Paris Fashion Week showed us that your feet never take a back seat. These shoes are made to be the star of the show. Chloe and Marc Jacobs led the pack and here are some of my favorites, including some sites that can only be Paris.
Top row, Chloe shoes. Middle row, Marc Jacobs shoes and I’m wearing a Commes des Garcons cape trench, Velvet harem pants, Rag & Bone suede boots and Jerome Dreyfuss Albert bag. Second middle row, Chloe shoes. Bottom row, Chloe shoes.
