The Worn Identity: Greek Salad With a Side of Jazz!

Destination: Dinner & A Show

This weekend my Mom performed at a local Restaurant and Bar in Encino. Rob and I drove out to support her and were treated to a night of good music and yummy Mediterranean food. (I am a sucker for Greek salads and Shrimp Kabobs). My mom is a jazz singer and performs monthly at different venues. I am really proud of her. She has always loved to sing, but in recent years she has really begun pursuing her dream. I love the fact that she has never let her dream die, and after raising my brother and myself, and retiring from a tiring job, she now has the time and energy to further feed her passion.

Are there any dreams in your life that are dying to be fed?

On any given day I can be obsessed with a number of things. Today, I chose to focus on scarves. I have been developing a very blatant love affair with scarves for the past few years. I became enamored with them when I was trying to loose the baby weight from my last pregnancy. I refused to purchase any new clothing in the rather large size I had become. Instead, I turned my focus to accessories, and scarves quickly became my favorite pick-me-up. A scarf can brighten an outfit instantly. It can add a pop of color or signal a wild streak. I am very particular about my scarves though. They must be long, and have great drape. And don’t get me started on infinity scarves, I will never allow those to go out of fashion. I am very passionate about my love of cowl necks and infinity scarves, but I digress… I tend to wear scarves year round, which can be hard to do in 100 degree weather, but if it’s not on my neck, it’s in my bag, just waiting for the moment the sun decides to take it down a thousand!

Mood Board Mondays: The Stylish Shopper

The Stylish Shopper

Gotta hit the stores for a few more gifts today. This is what I would love to be wearing . . . sans the 5 1/2″ heels. (I was never good at shopping in heels!) However, I just love these Charlotte Olympia pumps! They are so festive I just had to throw them in. Now, I am off to my real closet to duplicate. I’ll let you know what I come up with!

What do you like to wear when shopping?

Label Love: Bottega Veneta Cruise ’11-12

Bottega Veneta is one of my favorite labels. The quality of their craftsmanship is impeccable. The literal translation of Bottega Veneta is “artisans workshop.” Hearing those words brings to mind images of old world artisans painstakingly toiling away at their craft, creating their signature intrecciato weave in supple leathers and exotic skins. Not only do they create beautiful clothes and accessories, they also do furniture and collaborate with artists from all walks for their Art of Collaboration and Special Projects series. Recently, BV unveiled their Cruise ’11-12 Line on their website. See my top picks below!
