From Where I Wish: San Francisco
I have been wanting to visit the west coast for a while. I find there is such an allure to cross the pond when really there are beautiful cities waiting to be explored on our very own continent. So this edition of From Where I Wish is from the San Francisco of my imagination … right in time for Valentines Day, the outfit I dreamt up (as is evidenced by such bankruptcy-inducing pieces like the inky black Isabel Marant sandals and iconic Saint Laurent purse) is what I would wear for a romantic date night at the gorgeous and equally iconic Fairmont San Francisco – a Fairmont hotel is always worth the splurge. On the more affordable scale of attire; the foundation of this outfit is easily attainable; a Chicwish skirt (I swear, the people over at Chicwish are like the Mary Poppins of skirt providers – just look at it!! Tulle!! Sparkles!! Maxi!! Less than $100!!! I go bananas.) and GAP button down (a men’s version, of course) pair for a perfect mix of relaxed but special. Finishing touches like manicured nails a la Chanel and a spritz of Jo Malone get you through the evening (because I think maybe a bold red lip for V-day might be a tad cliché and I don’t own lipstick. Even in dreamland.) And there it is; date night with a touch of west coast whimsy – maybe I’ll see you there?
