A+D Museum: CELEBRATE: THE WEARABLE
This past weekend I went to the A+D Museum’s annual fundraising gala, Celebrate: The Wearable.
It was a fashion show with both a live and silent auction and plenty of fashion to celebrate. One of the main reasons I went was because my dad’s company, Karten:Design, had a piece in the fashion show! His piece is titled Street Lace and is “an expressive, fashion-forward ensemble of a hat and wrap inspired by Los Angeles street maps that ties what you wear to where you’re from”. The piece is made from leather that was etched and cut with lasers to create a pattern of abstracted street maps. Karten Design’s Street Lace was highlighted in the runway show next to pieces from notable architects, fashion designers, graphic designers, and artists, including Karim Rashid, Richard Meier, and Trina Turk.
Overall, the event was really fun and had a great turnout. My dad’s piece sold for $500 and the money went to a great cause. As for what I wore to the event:
Vintage Sonia Rykiel top, Harajuku Mini jeans ($19 from the children’s department at Target…), Zara blazer, and my newest, bestest heels ever (thanks to my Grandma’s birthday money) the Rag & Bone Newbury Boot.
A mYsPaCe shot to see the jeans and top a little more up close and personal.

If fashion can become a fine art today, why not cooking? Why is the vicarious consumption of food pornographic, while the vicarious consumption of couture is, well, just fashion?

I will probably eat anything that comes from the duo Josh Loeb and Zoe Nathan. They own and operate Rustic Canyon, Huckleberry and Sweet Rose; three of my favorite places to eat in Los Angeles. Their new(ish) venture, Milo + Olive, is a wonderful breakaway from their other restaurants. Milo + Olive specializes in amazing pastries matched by creative and delicious pizzas. Pictured is the Margherita pizza, the Butternut Squash pizza (fresh mozzarella, caramelized onions, sage, brown butter, farm egg), and Marinated Green Beans (green beans marinated in whole grain mustard, pine nuts, goat cheese, dried fruit and other things which I forget because it isn’t on the menu anymore). Anyways, it was a lovely place for lunch. It’s definitely small, so I’d recommend takeout if you want to cater to a big group. I haven’t been for the pastries yet but knowing some of Nathan’s staples at Huckleberry I am assuming Milo + Olive will be amazing as well. Some of the tempting breakfast items include:
- MUSHROOMS & ANSON MILLS GRITS with sunny side up eggs & fresh herbs
- CHEESY EGGS ON SUPER CHEESY TOAST soft scrambled eggs, Parmigiano Reggiano (add La Quercia prosciutto)
- M+O BAGEL with cream cheese & mixed onion marmalade
- MUFFINS vegan gluten-free banana chocolate or strawberry cornmeal
Anyways, now that I’m sufficiently craving every item of their menu, I should probably end this post.

Madewell Spring 2012: Not much to say other than that I want it to be Spring and I want it all. Madewell has really stepped it up and made a bold statement with this collection. I love all of the colors and patterns, especially the stripes (I tried and failed kicking my addiction to stripes recently). Click the pictures for a closer look/if you want to know what to get me for my birthday.

Proenza Presents: My need for an Alexander Wang bag is still alive and kickin’ but recently I have found a new purse to relentlessly look for on eBay.The Proenza Schouler PS1 bag is so beautiful and classic (specifically in the medium and large sizes) and the colors and prints just add to its appeal. If anyone is willing to shell out a cool $1,500 - hit me up. In the mean time, I’ll be selling lemonade for the next 20 years to save up for this bad boy.
Great feature by Greg Kessler that allows you to drag a bar to see the transformation of models during different fashion shows. I’ll admit that I do love anything interactive - but this is cool! Click the link above!
