In contrast to last year’s “all white” obsession, this winter would be unbearable without vibrant colors. It’s been quite the european winter around Northern California with non-stop rainy days and East Coast-like cold. It took some long heavy rain weeks and literally tons of snow to officially take the legendary 5 year California drought out of the picture. I can’t forget that day in the car crossing the Bay Bridge during my daily commute to work when the guy on the radio goes: “The 5 year drought is over! We are back to normal”. I think that gave me a mini morning wake up stroke! The past 6 years I’ve lived in California has been all a big fat climate lie? Was the mild winters and endless sunny days abnormal?
If you just realized that the Holidays are here and still trying to recover from the shock, don’t worry! You’re not the only one with a busy life and a casual wardrobe. No need to panic and go on a last minute shopping spree. Most of the times that doesn’t work. We end up spending on things that we don’t really need or they are our style. The reality is that no matter how much you have convinced yourself that there’s nothing in your closet for a holiday party, there’s always something you can pull.
One of my favorite things to do on a rare Sunday afternoon is hanging out at home with friends, cooking and chatting for hours! A few weekends ago Regina, a new friend who moved to San Francisco from Mexico, came over to our apartment by Lake Merritt to catch up and hangout. Not only she is a super positive person but she’s also very creative. She studies Media & Communications at the Academy of Art University and came prepared for a little shoot on The Fashion Tub!
