i’m coming up on the end of my three month no shopping commitment (more on the experience later) and i’m definitely starting to feeling the shopping itch. it really wasn’t that hard but that’s mostly because i avoided online browsing (email blasts about new arrivals and sales are my downfall!) and also didn’t go to any malls. i had to shop one day for a shoot and it was way harder to not buy anything when it was right in front of me. it’s also the fact that spring collections have launched and there are so many pretty colors popping up and that’s hard to resist (case in point is that above which i didn’t even want to tell you about because what if it sells out before my three months are up?!). so instead of buying anything i just created a list of nine items i’d buy if i was shopping! – joanie

 $158 – i saw these yesterday in person and was immediately drawn to the mustard yellow color and the classic mule shape with a feminine touch. i find jeffery campbell shoes to be very comfortable as well.

 $245  – i think we all have a soft spot for anything Clare V and the fun and whimsical details she adds to her bags. I love the beading detail on this pretty black and white piece.

  $83 – if you don’t own a duster, it’s about time you do. they are the perfect thing to travel in, they’re so cozy and it’s basically like wearing a bathrobe in public, a very chic bathrobe. , this one is the perfect grey/purple color.

$50 – i know i’ve been on a serious H&M kick but they really are doing such a good job. i love this blouse so much and think it’s the perfect spring piece.

 $388 – my sister has a version of these shoes and i just saw her wearing them last weekend and was reminded what a great shape they are. so flattering and would pair well with basically anything.

 $40 – a wrap dress is the perfect thing to bring you into spring, paired with a denim jacket and sneakers or dressed up for an evening out with a strappy sandal.

 $50 – buy these shoes right now, maybe in both colors because they will be a shoe that you will wear all the time, trust me.

  – there is nothing new about gingham for spring but i’m still so drawn to it, especially in black and white which feels particularly chic. and i really liked J.Crew swimwear.

 $100 – somehow getting a new pair of running shoes makes me more excited to work out and i love the nude with purple on these ones.




man, has some seriously good knits right now. i just got back from Colorado and it was so nice to be able to wear jackets and sweaters for a bit. but now i’m back in LA where it is 80 degrees so i’ll just have to live vicariously through all of you who have temps low enough to wear layers and sweaters. at the start of the year i asked for feedback on what you wanted to see me include in the styled column and i got a lot of responses about people wanting options at a less expensive price point. and that for many people buying a $100 sweater is out of the question, so i want to try and incorporate more items like that, great pieces i find that are really reasonably priced so that everyone can find something for themselves through this column. -joanie 


 $30 – a grey sweater like this is one of the most worn items in my closet. i wear it with jeans, skirts, over dresses, with jean shorts in the summer, you name it! it’s a classic, you won’t regret it.

 $50 – i love the color of this sweater and how it looks on the body, the mock neck, and the thick ribbing are all great elements.

 $40 – this is such a sweet pale yellow color, feels very 70’s. it’s thin enough to wear year-round and it’d be easy to tuck into things.

 $30 – you know i’m so into purple right now and this is an inexpensive way to add it into your wardrobe.

 $60 – this is beautiful, the sleeves, the texture, the winter white, order this one!

 $35 – for those who want to go bold, i like that the cuff and collar are solid. that fact makes it really wearable!

$35 – the knit on this almost makes it look homemade, which i love. it’s such a vibrant color and i love that the sleeves are narrow at the cuff.

$80 – i have a big turtleneck sweater like this and i get tons of compliments on it. wear it with a pair of skinny jeans and a top knot!

 $25 – the extended cuff on this sweater makes it very chic! would be perfect with a pair of wide legged navy pants.


(the perfect travel sweater!), can’t get over how chic this is,  in navy, a classic, such a good one for summer evenings!

i grew up in michigan so i know how long and brutal winter can be but, for the last month or so i’ve been really wanting to be in the snow. i love the california sunshine but i’m looking for a little break in the seasons and a chance to really appreciate the warmth of a fire, the need for layers and a nice blanket of white snow covering everything. my family is going to be in telluride next week and i’m seriously contemplating jumping on a plane for 72 hours to get my fill. here are some cold weather worthy things i’d pack…



 $248 – a pretty pop of blue to brighten up a grey day!

 $298 – i have the travel sized version of this scarf and i love it. so soft and warm!

$28 – a nice oversized beanie that will be sure to cover your ears!

 $175 – a playful sweater that is warm but stylish.

 $68 – for the house and walks down to the hot tub!

 $12.50 – i love their camp socks, i own four pairs and they are thick enough to keep your feet warm around the house.

$130 – cute and practical!

 $50 – i have a patagonia down for when it’s really cold but this is a fun playful option for less blustery days.

$100  – a fun half zip in a very ski resort friendly print!




ok…time for one of those personal posts that feel maybe even a little too personal, but that’s okay sometimes. this time it’s about having kids…

this could be called stocking stuffers or just smaller, meaningful gifts that won’t take up all the room in your suitcase but will still give the receiver a general feeling of glee!

$4o (25% off that price today!) – because who doesn’t love a fun hat to wear all winter long!

$48 – a major office favorite around here. this mist gives you an instant refresh and a bit of hydration which is seriously needed these time of year. spritz it on right before you put on your make up!

 – every single one of us is going to need a massage after the holidays are over so set someone you love up with a gift certificate to treat themselves. if you’re in LA our favorite go to spot is which offers really reasonably priced massages in the most relaxing setting.

 – i love all of the glossier products. i’m really not a make up girl and their products let me bump up my look for a night out without having that heavy i’m wearing make up feeling. their cloud paint is a gel based blush which blends really beautifully into the skin. i also love their boy brow.

$28 – i own this incense and love it. you don’t need an incense holder. they come in little pyramid shapes and several delicious scents. it’s one of those things that someone might not buy themselves because it’s $28 but would be delighted to receive as a gift.

$28 – everyone needs a few tools hanging around for the occasional ikea assemble and such. we have this little kit at our office and it works great in a pinch.

$55 (25% off that price today!) – i know i post about these cape scarves all the time but i do think they are the perfect gift. excellent to bring while traveling on an airplane, perfect to throw on over your shoulder at the beach or to toss in your bag when you leave the house for the evening it might get chilly.

$36 – no one is above the occasional tired + puff eyes and these little hydrating gels do the trick. especially with all the holiday cocktail parties in our future.

$7 – there is something really depressing about january and trying to muster up the energy to dive back into our normal routine. so i love the idea of gifting someone these weekly meal planning recipes. every friday they would get set 5 new meal ideas emailed to them for the week along with photos of each dish, prep-ahead tips and a grocery list. and it’s only $7/month. i personally really enjoy cooking but coming up with something to make is not always the easiest so this idea seems genius to me.
