The Ace Los Angeles has opened, designed by commune. everyone is talking about it and the restaurants are finally open for dinner- going this weekend!

– i know it’s freezing most places, however, maybe buying a few new k.jacques and ancient greek sandals will help you through it. i’ve added more than i can count to the MDS store this week- shop here.

2014 spring couture took place this week in paris. i love that vogue featured “it girl” allison williams taking it all in- i love this picture of here at my fav spot l’avenue. get ready everyone- allison williams is beautiful, dresses beyond, and she’s going to be a huge star!
