It’s all about ME..HAUTE


Me. Fall 2016. Marin County, California.

This necklace is from Laura Kimpton, her large instillations may be found at Burning Man, and she has a retail store in the bohemian town of Fairfax, California. Louis Vuitton is also making gold initial necklaces, $480 each. See below from In Style Magazine, 


“Gold-finished” meaning not real gold


I can’t remember where I bought this shearling jacket, but it was used and I knew it was a seriously amazing find. My psychic style powers told me that shearling was going to be huge again – and I was right. I love this jacket, but it’s a little bulky and boxy. Shearling can have a luxury, designer look, a downtown NYC look, a mountain, preppy LL.Bean look or even a bohemian 70’s look..depending on the jacket and how you style it.

Seen here on me is my 90’s style – reminds me of Mary J. Blige and the street style of Jennifer Lopez, and Hip-Hop artists in NYC during that period. I took an American Apparel strapless one piece, and cut it  – it’s a little crooked (I never cut in a straight line).


Cheap sunglasses, $10 on Haight-Ashbury..


My enormous Louis Vuitton Speedy bag, which is really sold as luggage. I bought these Timberlands at Century 21 in NYC…


Does this braid make me look a little bohemian?


Paige Denim, love these jeans – not sure if I love the way my butt looks..but they are comfortable and not skin tight.


My dorkiest face – only adding to this look!!


Funky World Traveling Mom. Haute Cali Drop-Off.


Elaine. San Anselmo, California. February 2014.

Fashion Notes: Jeans: Paige Denim, Sweater: Enti, Boots: Steve Madden.

Elaine grew up shopping in vintage and second hand stores..she likes clothing, but never spends a lot of money on her outer wear.  Elaine has been living mostly oversees in Madagascar, Morocco and Thailand.  She enjoyed scoping out style in Bangkok, where according to Elaine, “fashion is mod meets baby-doll”.

Elaine fell in love with fashion while living in Scotland in the early 1980’s, when Punk was thriving…I would of loved to see all those mohawks!!

This mom is a total jet setter, who takes influence from the amazing locations she’s made cool is that?
