We Did It!

On Saturday June 22nd, during Solstice and a full moon, I said “I do” to the man of my dreams, in front of all my favorite people from Kenya, England and the States. We were married at El Presidio Chapel in Santa Barbara and hosted our reception at our home in Mission Canyon. I wore Monique Lhuillier and Chanel and my handsome groom, John Varvatos and Paul Smith. I have to give special thanks to so many people and will do so in posts over the coming weeks, but just want to start by saying that Kim Curtis of Toast is my hero. She is probably the most talented florist and event planner I have ever met and a dream to work with. I cannot thank her enough for all her brilliance and hard work and for executing our vision so perfectly.

If The Shoe Fits

When I was in New York for Fashion Week, I snuck in a little time looking for shoes for my wedding. Just like my wedding dress, these were the first shoes I tried on. After considering all other options, I realized pretty quickly that I wasn’t going to find a more perfect shoe for my wedding day. And they’re comfortable, which is a bonus! Maybe I will be dancing till the sun comes up, after all.

Highlights from Paris Fashion Week

On the runways of Paris Fashion Week, some of the industry’s titans demonstrated that Spring 2013 is going to be more than bright prints, and pretty patterns. With an artful balance of feminine and masculine, ruffles and lace were accented with blazers and trousers, tailored to perfection. Power meets play.
