"Be on your toes, don’t take things for granted. You have to cultivate the long-term. A lot of it has to do with being a nice person. People remember when you’re nice."
Joseph Altuzarra to Matches magazine. He’s one of the most talented young designers out there and clearly has his head on straight!

Red perfection at Carolina Herrera. This dress will definitely get someone on a best-dressed list at the Oscars (Lupita, please!).

Super-cool set at the Lacoste show

Liquid gold Nike Air Maxes on my friend Mariel: jealousy in shoe form.

Baby blue Chloe pre-fall 2014 bag. The color palette is so collegiate-cool. I love it!

Jingle All The Way

This is my (yes, belated) day two NYFW outfit. The top is by The Fashion Club, a brand by blogger Lulu Chang, whom I met at a nail salon in Los Angeles. Totally random, yes, but I love her line—it feels very minimalist and 90s cool and most items are under $500. The skirt is by Peter Som and it is a sequined confection of a skirt that made a jingly-jangly sound as I walked. People could hear me coming a mile away! The shoes are Prada and I found them on Yoox, one of my favorite shopping sites for bargain-hunting. And the bag is tweed Chanel, an investment if there ever was one, but truly timeless. For more pictures, visit The Cut. And for other editor outfits, check out Lucky’s website… amazing new street style every day!

Lucky Me

It’s still a tad surreal to say it out loud, to be honest, but here goes: I’m the new editor-in-chief of Lucky magazine. I’m in the throes of planning the September issue so posts will be (don’t be too cross with me) fewer and farther between. I do hope you’ll all support me in this new endeavor by following me on Twitter or Instagram—they’ll be the best ways to ask me questions moving forward—and following Lucky on all their various platforms! xx


Last week in Instagram pictures… A weekend getaway to my favorite place on the west coast, Palm Springs, and the discovery of the chicest grey-purple roses!

Karl Lagerfeld, you win the prize for Most (Fashion) Quotable Man Alive. 

Jean Therapy

I found this sight—a rack of never-ending denim—very soothing to behold. Snapped it at 3x1, a new shop in Soho that (be still my heart) lets you create custom jeans. I’m dreaming up a pair of black and navy distressed boyfriend jeans…

Hey Eva! First off, I love your blog and style a lot which is why you're probably the best person to ask. I recently just finished my first year of a fashion oriented college. Though I make sure I always look put together Ive realized my actual style has been iffy and not what I want it to be. I am very ready to throw everything out and start all over again. So what do you suggest I do to help me figure it out?

Okay, take a deep breath. Do not throw everything out. You’re experiencing what I’d like to call “fashionitis”, a non-fatal condition in which you compare what you have to what everyone has and feel inadequate. The cure for fashionitis? Realizing that your style isn’t “iffy”—it’s evolving, and something that’ll take time to figure out. People develop fashion instincts over time, realizing what works for them and what doesn’t, what they love and what they don’t. I’m sure some of the people at your school were born with an innate sense of style, sure. They might be those types who always know exactly what they want to wear and it’s always effortless. More likely? They spend a significant amount of time planning their outfits daily so that they look effortless and like “Oh, this old thing?” There’s so much pressure on people to have a rock solid idea of their personal style at your age, but trust me—I’m speaking from personal experience—it’s an evolution. And there is a joy, whether in style or anything else, to taking time to explore and play and learn.

Going Greek

Absolutely love these crazy-major (cray-jor?) sandals from a collaboration with Carven and Ancient Greek Sandals. I’m picturing them with little denim cut-offs and a slouchy t-shirt. If only they were out now (instead of November, when resort hits stores). 

Slytherin Chic

Clearly it’s been a long day and I’m rather at a loss for witty headlines! Anyway, I love this graphic but simple canvas tote from Whistles. The fact that it comes with two different length straps is rather brilliant. And it’s under one hundred dollars, which is always a (major) bonus in my book.
