Sézane was a brand I was never really familiar with until one Los Angeles based Julie Sariñana Instagrammed them up and down her page one fateful day while traipsing around Paris. They were a very chic French brand from what I saw, and I'll forever remember the iconic Parisian shots Jules shared in her Sézane pieces while abroad. Many years later I was reintroduced to the brand by their team while on a press trip to San Francisco. They had rented out a home in the city and had a week of visits and appointments where they invited bloggers, influencers, editors and press to peruse the newest collection and really get a feel for the brand since they are only available to view in person in Paris, London or NYC.  

I spent hours on an invite from Glitter Guide at a shopping party, drinking wine, plotting what items I needed to shop and truly falling in love with the carefully crafted selection of inventory. The quintessential striped bateaus, the delicious buttery leather goods, the exotic woven straw bags -- I wanted it all! I then came back a few days later to chat one-on-one with the marketing team, Beatriz and Margeaux, and I fell even more in love with their brand ethos, and a genuine admiration for these two boss women making impressions and being truly inspirational. 

Word around the block is that they are coming back this Winter for a pop-up shop so we can get our little slice of Parisian chic here in the Bay. Hoping they come sooner rather than later so I fill up on Sézane for the holidays.

Here are some of my faves from the brand at the moment. The price point is on the higher side but it's classicly French and a piece you'll have and wear for a while, plus if you snag a dress this week they throw in tights --- ooh la la! I'm definitely ordering these this week.

Well, I never thought I would be one for a casual California look. Sincerely Jules, Aimee Song, Rumi Neely all put their own spin on it and made it look so effortless and COOL if you will. I was always the more is more kinda girl --- print on print, layer until you can't layer anymore and always adding just one more accessory before I head out the door vs. taking one off. So it's more of a surprise to me than you, dear reader, that in the last 10 years I actually like this laid back California cool style more than I thought. I guess Silicon Valley finally influenced me, I never thought it possible to influence the local, but here we are. I digress, it's cool, I'm into it. 

Here is my take on that effortless Cali cool, bohemian chic whatever-you-want-to-call-it-style. Throw on an easy don't-need-to-think-about-it backless dress with a statement albeit classic fedora, some white sneaks, and a ton of gold jewelry like this gorge chunky ring, we're talking more is truly more here, and viola, Cali cool accomplished. While the dress isn't the most flattering, I accidentally grabbed the wrong size, I think it could be super cute if you bought it in the right size, anyone a 0? The last one in a size 0 and on major sale, right this way!
