SWEATER AS ART | DANIEL SILVERSTAIN

I discovered a fantastic designer at the end of 2016. Daniel Silverstain puts an incredible amount of thought into his designs, and I completely fell for the White.City collection. It was inspired by the Bauhaus movement (which influenced a lot of architecture), as well as Israel and the future. Cool tidbit: Daniel Silverstain is a former musician and recording artist. Great asymmetry and juxtaposition of futuristic, metallic flash with soft, see-through gauze. Lines are clean and volume is oversized. He was also inspired by both the Mediterranean Sea and the desert. I really enjoyed this silhouette : pairing the oversized sweater with fitted jeans. Check out more of Daniel Silverstein's designs here and here. Also in shown here: loafers jeans bag (similar) photos by Mr. Nicholson

AUTUMN IN THE BIG APPLE

One of my favorite things about autumn is the cool, crisp air (and hot apple cider and cinnamon-sprinkled lattes). I don't get much of it in LA, so I relish it in New York City. I'm so in love with this amazing coat by Teatum Jones. No place like New York, New York. ^_~ coat by Teatum Jones pants by Zara sunglasses by Saint Laurent bag by Chanel shoes by Christian Louboutin

PLAYING WITH CONTRAST TO MAKE A STYLE STATEMENT

PHOTOGRAPHY BY Walik Goshorn Love makes the world go round, but I like to think contrasts—whether they be slight or extreme—do the same. Strolling through Soho, one gets echoes of old New York City; depending on the time of day, it’s easy to slow down and forget this is one of the fastest cities on the planet. Contrast can always be counted on to up the ante in fashion. For instance, I adore lace, but most times, when I wear it, I like to pair it with something harder, like metal details, heavier accessories, or masculine tailoring. Blazers go with just about everything (or, arguably, absolutely everything) and I like the soft color and slight oversized fit of this Sincerely Jules take. I enjoy rompers because they’re easy, and this Willow & Clay number is…

REVISITING OLD PIECES IN YOUR WARDROBE

  I'm a firm believer in everything having "its time." You can feel it tugging at your intuition: time to switch careers, time to switch majors, time to try a new hobby, time to finally read that book sitting on your shelf for eons. So goes old pieces in one's wardrobe. I'm not a hoarder by any means (and if I am, I hereby deny it wholeheartedly), but I do save pieces that I think are "coming back" or are wonderful but have to wait their time because I don't yet have the right "moment" for them. Take my Prada boots. I love these quirky velvet and leather numbers but though I've had them for yeeearrrrs, I've worn them only once, and I didn't really like how I worked it the first time around. So…

SISTER DAY IN LA

  My sister Angela and I try to have at least one Sister Day every week. It can be difficult, but we make it happen because that's how The Rogers Sisters do. This past week we hung out at my new addiction, Blue Plate Oysterette. And that was just the beginning, because if there's one thing I love to do, it's eat...    I posted a Get Ready with Me | Fresh and Everyday Makeup tutorial video, in which I mentioned I was late for this lunch, but I think we more than made up for it. Also, I only filmed my outfit briefly but you can see the wonderful MaisonKwee ring here. Their rings are absolutely exquisite. Tee shirt by Sincerely Jules. Glad I snagged one because they were flying off the Nordstrom racks like…
