April 2017. Somewhere in California…..Keep on Truckin’
Love the patches, especially since I now live in Grateful Dead country, and that’s an original patch – little did anyone know, it would be worn with stilettos and a large classic Chanel bag.
This 70’s jean jacket was hiding in between two vintage hawaiian shirts at the vintage flea market in Oakland. You would think I won the lottery, I was so excited – – -and for $70.00, it was mine. Oversized, original patches, perfect color and rips in all the right places – I landed on vintage denim perfection. Sunglass are from Madewell, www.madewell.com
These amazing door knockers are personalized with my name – from Melody Ehsani, https://melodyehsani.com and my chandelier earrings are from Neiman Marcus by Oscar de la Renta
My heels are from the Off Fifth, the Saks Fifth Avenue outlet store – they were maybe $20. The sun dress was also a random and very inexpensive find. Most people, would say it’s really a top!! The bag, Chanel – not inexpensive, but I like to think of it as an “investment” piece, investment in my style 🙂
The oversized jean jacket, makes a mini-dress seem more comfortable. I can wear it open or hide behind the bagginess.
Seeeeee I can hide under this huge jacket!

Central Park. Summer 2016.
Started chatting with this mama on a park bench in Central Park, while our kids were playing with the remote control sail boats. She’s from Colombia, but moved to NYC to continue her fabric design business.
Her love of pattern and design is pretty clear based on her floral print dress. There is something glamorous about this mother’s look – so chic, so timeless.
Natalie. Mom. Environmental Activist. Film Maker. Marin County. 2015.
Natalie moved from Los Angeles to a bohemian Northern California town, where she and her husband create documentaries.
Not to make this all about Mara Mara, but I must confess that I’ve been wanting to look good in a sun dress since I was a tween. Unfortunately, my curvy body (aka huge boobs) didn’t quite conform to the fabric limitations of a thin strapped, breezy dress. I know you are rolling your eyes, but living in Miami and not being able to wear a cute sun dress was painful. I’m kidding, but I still want to rock a sun dress, preferably a vintage 1990’s Betsy Johnson…man, I would scroll through the racks at Betsey Johnson looking for that perfect floral dress…usually it would end in me buying a mini skirt.
Natalie has the perfect lean dancer figure to look stunning in this empire waist practically floor length dress. ahhh to be tall, thin and narrow – – -what that must be like…
A little loose bun
San Rafael, California. October 2015
Very quick shots of this pretty mom in her cotton, bohemian sun dress.
Gorgeous. A little exposed back goes a long way.
Do you know what an accomplishment it is, to look this adorable in a dress, on a windy day taking care of two small children? I’ll tell you, it’s a major one (especially if the wind or kid doesn’t pull your dress up)
Lareesa. Santa Monica, California. November 2014.
Lareesa bought this dress when she was living in India. I love her blue nails and gold bangle, check out the photo with her exposed back. What a gorgeous mama!
How to make a cheap sundress look cool..you mix it up, that’s how…
