Marina Recap: World Cup & Wedding Whirl

recap

Hopped off the plane from LAX with a dream and a leather jacket… and snatched a couple winks of sleep before waking up at the crack of dawn (9AM) before zooming straight to Stylehaüs! My business is my baby (sorry Ben) so no matter how much fun I’m having on a trip, returning home is a welcome relief. With all the exciting changes and projects looming in the upcoming months, there’s little time to loaf around. And I’m ok with that. Here are some highlights of last week’s whirlwind of friends and family!

Work Hard Play Hard Need Nap

After landing in NYC late the night before, I worked a full but super productive day at stylehaüs, then made it to xiv for my good friend Dean May’s birthday.

It was a classic Summer white party and I had an amazing time grooving in the DJ booth with Paul Oakenfold, a great artist and one of Ben’s good friends.

The spot was packed with gorgeous Hollywood types and everyone got super into sets from Oakenfold and the EC Twins.

I wore: a Cosabella bra, David Lerner white cotton tank top, white Superfine jeans, and Nike wedges.

I’ve got the blues… The leather jacket blues.

All #summer really means for us at @stylehausla is lighter colored leather

I wore: Topshop jeans, Rag & Bone booties, and two jackets from stylehaus. The blue and white floral print on the left is VEDA, and blue knitted leather jacket on the right is by Price Upon Request.

Blue Hat At Bar Marmont

Ben and I grabbed dinner and drinks at the ever-glam Bar Marmont for some much needed mushy couple time.

Hot Dog Before Julio

marna5

Ben and I watched the World Cup in style at our friend’s new place in the Hills. As much as I love tequila, I was loving those hot dogs more.

I wore: Benjamin J beige tank top, Topshop black jeans, and trusty Converse. 

USA USA USA YAY

Not to be superstitious, but I swear my photos are lucky. The shot was taken literally seconds before USA scored a crucial goal. How cute are Ben and his friend in their matching pink button ups? I was calling them the Pink Gents all day.

View From The Top

When I say a house is amazing, that house is freakin phenomenal. Here I am accompanied by Sarah making the most of a beautiful view before Sunset. Her white crochet dress is to die for.

PhotoBooth For Life

Photobooths are like amazing toys for adults. Like grown up legos. If we’re hanging out and I see a photobooth available, you know we’ll be taking some weird and wonderful pictures.

Stanford Stadium

6.30

After a wonderful week, Ben and I took a quick trip to Stanford for his sister’s wedding. In a stroke of brilliance that my bridezilla self may or may not slightly envy, his sister held her rehearsal dinner at Stanford Stadium, where she met her husband. I can’t even compete. But I’ll try.

I wore: Balenciaga suspender harem pants, Christian Dior Jazz shoes, Pierre Hardy purse, and vintage striped top. 

The Family Stone/Kusin

My future in-laws are a damn good-looking crowd. How dapper is Ben? The only one not thrilled is that baby, who looks ready for a nap .

You’re too good for tacky flip flops, ragged denim, or an unremarkable tank top. This look seems simple, and it is: just a beautiful blue tank top made on trend by a halter high neckline, high end denim shorts that make your butt look WHOA, and crazy cool kicks boys will envy and girls with lust. Simplicity doesn’t have to be basic, and comfort CAN be combined with cutting edge trends.

5 Celebrities Who Love The Nude Heel Trend

I dare you to walk around nude.

Neutral heels have long been a staple to savvy starlets and sanguine stylists who appreciate their many charms. The understated shoe goes with anything and elongates every type of leg with a slimming, statuesque, and sophisticated effect. Last month alone, bombshells such Blake Lively, Alessandra Ambrosio, and Miranda Kerr were spotted out and about in nude heels.

It’s no coincidence that all of those ladies are models and frequently followed by paparazzi; they know from experience that a nude heels photograph beautifully. Day or night, work or play, Summer or Fall, a pair of neutral heels will never fail to flatter.

If you’re looking for a worthy investment or flexible footwear, look no further than this season’s hottest heel hue.

This Season’s Tea Length Skirt trend is the most interesting thing to happen to tea since our rowdy American forefathers incited a war by chucking it overboard.

The proper but never prissy cut lends sophistication to petite women and gamine charm to lengthy ladies while cleverly disguising anything remotely resembling cellulite. Luminaries such as Prabal Gurung, Christian Dior, and Tracy Reese debuted darling tea length ensembles during Spring/Summer 2014 Fashion week. Adapting a tea length skirt to your wardrobe is simple! During sweltering Summer months, pair with a crop top and sandals. When Autumn rolls through, just toss some tights and boots underneath the tea length skirt and you’re good to go.

Father’s Day Gift Guide: Stylish Presents for Superior Dads

 Stylehaüs Father’s Day Gift Guide: 7 Stylish Presents For Superior Dads

fday3

Father’s Day is once again upon us, and we’re thrilled for the annual opportunity to put aside our Daddy issues and show thanks for paternal care with thoughtful gift giving and sweet speeches.

Dads are notoriously hard to shop for: their taste is dubious, their trendiness is often nonexistent, and their communication skills halted at puberty. Worst of all, Dads rarely say what they actually want. Instead, they’ll simply say “I have everything I could ever want” and then start talking about something super dull like golf or nature.

It is a rare Dad that truly appreciates or even gives a second thought the never-ending ebb and flow of fashion. Don’t despair: our stylists have assembled a list of Father’s Day Gift ideas guaranteed to bring delight and approval to even the fiercest Fathers.

1. Classic Leather Wallet

wallets

What better gift to give Daddy than the gift of carrying cash in style? Think of the positive associations: every time he looks at money, precious Papa will think of you.

Plus, wallets are one of the few Dad friendly luxury accessories. Even the most modest man will accept and enjoy the gorgeous status symbol of a chic wallet.

Wallets are a gift that will be paid back threefold he’s contemplating whether you REALLY deserve that YSL crossbody for a birthday present and his lovely leather accessory reminds him of your boundless and utterly selfless generosity. You’re such a nice person!

Brahmin Billfold Wallet in Black Melbourne, $98. Santiago Gonzalez Crocodile Wallet, $595. Gucci ‘Microguccissimma’ Wallet in Navy, $300. Giorgio Armani Hammered Leather Wallet with ID holder, $395.

2. Poised Planner

planners

If your Dad is anything like mine, he’s partial to long-winded monologues about the importance of punctuality, discipline, moderation, and a myriad of other tedious traits.

Dads are practical. They like gifts that make sense. That’s why they have such difficulty comprehending the importance of accessorizing: it has no (TANGIBLE) benefit. By giving your Father a planner, you not only remind him of his own incredible importance, but you subtly signal that you too are a responsible person who understands the beauty of proper time management.

To me, the height of luxury is for even the smallest item to be a gorgeous piece in it’s own right. By sneaking some style in a stereotypically insignificant item, you’re giving dear Dad a taste of the good life. Without giving him the opportunity to blather on about growing up in a cardboard shack or whatever other guilt trip he adores to lovingly send you on.

Mulberry Leather Agenda in Natural Oak, $470. Moleskine Planner, $30. Trussardi Planner, $149. AcquaDiParma Planner, $148.

3. Super Soft Blanket

blankets

Even the MANLIEST Man can appreciate a super soft surface. Everyone likes to be comfortable, but Dads LOVE the serene sweetness of uninhibited comfort.

Super soft blankets are one of those items you don’t know you want until you get one, and then it’s something you can’t live without. Plus, Fathers aren’t exactly known for their glittering social calendar: blankets can be enjoyed solo, in the comfort of his Man cave.

Whether he’s tucking for a good night’s sleep or slumped over the couch watching the big game, your Dad will smile with simple joy every time he snuggles into his new blanket and thinks of the wonderful daughter he raised. American

Blanket Pattern Fleece Throw, $77. Missoni Home Pereseo Blanket, $775. Portico Wrapture in Faux Fur, $80. Barney’s New York Havana Herringbone Blanket, $335.

4. Regal Robe

robe

Is there any image more pervasive in American pop culture than the haggard all American Dad, wrapped in a ratty robe and clutching a mug of coffee as he retrieves the morning paper from the front steps?

Yeah, that picture needs a revamp. Stat. And you’re just the girl to do it! Like a fancy blanket, the luxury robe is a delight men seldom buy for themselves.

This Father’s Day, give your Dad the gift of waking up and shutting down in comfort and sophistication with one of these masculine yet stylish robes.

Derek Rose Satin-Stripe Dobby Dot Robe in Navy, $400.00. Hanro Night & Day Knit Robe in Black Iris, $218.00. UGG Australia Brunswick Robe in Navy, $145.00. Neiman Marcus Cashmere Robe in Charcoal, $712.

5. Leather Jacket

jackets

Unorthodox? Yes. Leather jackets are as synonymous with ‘cool’ as Dads are with ‘uncool’. Unless your Father is a member of Duck Dynasty or rides a hog, he probably hasn’t owned a leather jacket since the swinging 70s.

Yet deep inside every lame Dad lies a young man who, at one point or another, desperately wanted to be cool. Age, maturity, and acceptance may have diminished that deeply human desire for street cred, but it still lingers on in even the dreariest of Dads.

This Fathers day, give him the gift of cool. He’ll love it. I promise.

Dsquared2 Mixed-Media Moto Jacket, $1460. Vince Patch-Pocket Leather Bomber Jacket, $696. Diesel Bunmi Sheepskin Leather Jacket, $798. Gucci Leather Safari Jacket, $3,483.

6. Stylish Sunnies

Father's Day

Duh duh duh duh duh. BAD TO THE BONE. Duh Duh Duh Duh. I DRINK ALONE CAUSE I PREFER TO BE BY MYSELF. Etc, etc. Inside every middle-old man lies a moonshine chugging, salt of the earth REAL MAN who DGAF.

Left to his own devices, most men will continue wearing the same lame shades until their trusty sunglasses are broken or lost. Then, they will buy an exact replica of those sunglasses and repeat the process all over again.

Men are creatures of habit, and Fatherhood seems to exacerbate monotonous tendencies. Break the cycle by grabbing chic sunnies that lend sophistication, not silliness, to even the most conservative Daddy.

Oliver Peoples Wyler 54 Oversized Sunglasses, Dark Tortoiseshell, $325. TOMS Eyewear Navigator Sunglasses, Gunmetal, $139. Persol Retro Keyhole Round Sunglasses, Terra Di Siena, $370. Tom Ford Marlon Aviator Sunglasses, Rose Golden, $360.

7. Bold Belt

belts

Belts are hideously unappreciated members of the accessory realm. Unlike, say, a bracelet, belts perform a specific and necessary function: preventing your pants from falling down.

In this sense, belts are a lot like Dads, who perform the specific and necessary function of preventing their darling daughters from one of life’s ubiquitous black holes or just falling down during a teenage Smirnoff black out.

Give Dad the gift of snaz with a mature yet trendy belt that will keep his pants riding high. Although hopefully not too high. You might have to have a talk with him about the high pants. Just a thought.

Salvatore Ferragamo Vara Sardegna Oversized Leather Belt, Dark Brown, $360. Tom Ford T Buckle Belt, Oxblood, $730. Lanvin Men’s Patent and Suede Belt, Black, $395. Fendi Reversible Braided Leather FF Men’s Belt, Navy, $450.
