Victoria and I are both wearing friendship diamond rings. Love the understated daintiness of this diamond ring and quite affordable!



I absolutely love print on print. It is one of my favorite looks.

The Union Square street art behind me is my print on print for today. The color combinations are unreal.

Have an awesome weekend.

Family Dinner

Last Weekend, I threw a bridal shower at my house for my best friend Laurie David. Since Laurie has a passion for poetry and music, each guest contributed a poem or a song. 25 best girlfriends gathered at my house, and showered Laurie with love and affection. We read poetry to her, and sang and danced all night, since half of them are professional performers. It was the most fun and happy evening we’ve ever had, celebrating our love for each other. I was the chef and the host of the evening together with another amazing girlfriend Kelly Meyer. Laurie loves Vietnamese food, so I threw a feast of Vietnamese cuisine for the evening! Was awesome, and everybody savored every bite.

My sister Jane, my baby Benji, Laurie and I.

Nina Karp was one of the first to arrive and started the party, dancing with Laurie!

Rita Wilson, Kelly Meyer and I. Kelly and I were the host of the shower.

Nina, Laurie, Arianna Huffington and I.

Beautiful bouquet of flowers Laurie sent to my house before the party.

Arianna , relaxing in my hammock.

Had a fabulous night in the company of great family and friends!



There is something oddly soothing about the subway to me. I listen to my iPod, do some people watching, and wait for time to pass until I finally arrive at my stop..  Anyone who knows me, knows it is my preferred method of transportation if weather does not permit me to walk.

One of the greatest benefits of working for such a prolific designer is that she inspires us to see creativity in everything – and this is one of the many reasons I look forward to the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival so much each year.  Coachella takes art and expression to an entirely new level and becomes an adult playground for creativity, music, and experience.

As the manager of the Chan Luu Los Angeles Showroom, it is my job to channel my inner artist on a daily basis.  Here are just a few of the art installations featured at Coachella last weekend including the random, everyday items that become art at Coachella.

Due to 25 mile per hour winds on the first and second days, there were installations that weren’t installed until the last day.  I love how happy the artists are in this picture.

Even people become art and the people watching is sensational.  I caught Paris Hilton hamming it up for the cameras and my beautiful buyer Jenn from Hub Clothing in Scottsdale rocking her Chan Luu snakeskin cashmere scarf in VIP.  Get Jenn’s look here:

This is me and my Coachella partner in crime for the last five years, Sarah.  I am wearing Chan Luu’s black leather fringe dress and a Goorin Brothers Panama.

For those of you attending the second weekend of Coachella, Happy Coachella!  Do not miss The Rapture, Girls, Bon Iver, Florence + The Machine or The Lucent Dossier Experience at the Do Lab.  Oh, and….I’ll see you there.


With love,

The visuals look so amazing!

Our wrap bracelets are a summer essential, and are the perfect way to complete any look!

The shop also features our great silk cashmere scarves.

If you are in New York be sure to stop by and check it out!

We will be in Bloomingdales until May 13th.

Sheer Black

Chiffon is one of my favorite fabrics as it is light and whimsical.  Below I am wearing  a Chiffon tunic from our Spring 2012 Collection.  The tunic is great because you can wear it as a dress, layer it as a top, or wear it over a bikini by the pool.

I love my Crystal wrap layered with a basic black and silver basic wrap:

Cherry Blossoms & Chan Luu

Chan, Terry, and I just returned from a whirlwind trip to Japan for a press day and two store events.  Our press day was very successful and many editors and stylists stopped by to see our new collection.  Here are a few photos of the event…

This is Chan being interviewed by Senken Shinbunsha and a shot of Terry with Harry from Yama Two and the editor of Safari Magazine:

We also went to store events at Anglobal shop in Tokyo and Kobe where VIP customers could meet Chan Luu and order special wrap bracelets:

Chan’s fans in Japan are amazing and we had so much fun meeting the staff and customers at the Anglobal shops:

Our trip to Japan was right in the middle of Cherry Blossom season and we had a little time to enjoy some of the incredible flowers…
