tuesday's girl: gorman / sfgirlbybay

among my friends, one of my personal style icons, jordan ferney of ohhappyday! showed up at a party at my house last week (more on that, soon!) and she was wearing this sassy jumpsuit. i had to track one down and order one up for myself (yes, you can say copycat). it’s the kind of outfit you could style a lot of different ways, so i’ll try and put my own unique spin on it. i fell into a bit of a rabbit hole though, over there on australia’s gorman and ordered a few things. i couldn’t help myself — they’re just not the kind of clothes you see everywhere, and when i see something unique i know i’m gonna love for a long, long time, i splurge.

gorman is currently collaborating with brooklyn-based designer kate kosek, and it was several pieces from her line that i ordered. like the amazing jumpsuit and then i had to have the golden past time dress. gorman is actually hosting a kate kosek $1000 giveaway on their site right now, so i entered that just in the high hopes that i might be able to win a few more pieces. fingers crossed!

This light Los Angeles home evokes the fresh feeling I want in my own space. Homepolish designer Haley Weidenbaum describes, “The Venice sun and the ocean air permeate the home and instill a relaxing, carefree vibe… In approaching the design, I felt strongly that incorporating natural materials and motifs in the interior would make the transition from the rustic exterior seamless and free-flowing. Reclaimed wood, leather, shells from the beach, and petrified wood made for wall decor. I wanted pops of color to be subtle so as to complement their surroundings rather than be the star of the show. To achieve this, I chose somewhat muted colors such as shades and tones of blue, green, and red. For a dash of elegance, I included metallic accents.”
