This week we continue to crush out on fall fashion. We scoured NET-A-PORTER for our most wanted looks, and loved putting them together for a mini editorial.
Who knew that one could be so quietly entertained and educated by subscribing to podcasts? Our favorites are below.
Also, our favorite doctor, Habib Sadeghi delivers a brilliant piece on the perils of virtuality.
This week’s goop collaboration

This Fall, we're mixing up style staples, so we've gone to NET-A-PORTER and found the best of. From minimal tailoring to structured and oversized, here’s what we’re into...
We love the boyfriend trend but rather than go top to tail with the look, we’re breaking it up with faded mid-rise jeans - the perfect length for fall - and these coveted Isabel Marant ankle boots.
We’re clashing textures and bringing new life to much loved classic staples, and this pleated skirt in neoprene is high on our wish list. Team with casual knits and a timeless biker for day, and luxe fabrics for evening.
We’ve found the perfect tee for fall - super soft and luxuriously warm in cashmere-felt with a slightly oversized shape. We’ll be wearing ours with skinny pants in leather and denim adding a ladylike pencil skirt to the mix.
Salt Air: New seafooder on Abbot Kinney. Great space. Really good food. Oysters and french fries, enough said.
Jonathan Gold's 101 Best Restaurants list: Just saved this to my iPhone...it's fun to swipe through on mobile. Our list would look different but we love to peruse this especially since the new Zagat is not what it used to be.
Roast: New organic take-away spot on Barrington. Delish sliders (grass-fed, hormone free beef, turkey, etc.) and tons of perfect roast veggie sides. My new lunch obsession.
by Dr. Habib Sadeghi
Several years ago, my wife and I spent our honeymoon in Fiji. As we sailed from island to island, the local community welcomed us to their nightly kava ceremony. This was a gathering of hundreds of people who socialized by consuming a drink known as kava. As the evening wore on, the huge crowd continuously broke up into smaller groups until there were only a handful of people in each circle. What started out as raucous story and joke exchange became much more intimate; it quickly became apparent that the purpose of this gathering served more than a social purpose, it was for healing and feeding the soul. I realized how intuitive the need for intimate human relationships was among the communities, how essential it is for us even today and yet, how far removed we’ve become from this primal need for personal relationships.
Here are our favorite podcasts for better, more enriching listening when you’re on the move. There are so many to choose from...our current list is a mix of classics and new finds.
The Dinner Party Download
This is possibly our current #1 favorite podcast. Hosted by Rico Gagliano and Brendan Francis Newman, this weekly show is designed to “give you an edge on your weekend dinner party conversation,” full of fascinating short factual segments plus an impressive interview lineup with cool musicians, authors, actors, directors, etc. There’s also a weekly segment on etiquette, answering all of life’s little manners quandaries.
The Sounds in My Head
Each Monday, Daniel (no last name) of Williamsburg, Brooklyn posts his weekly (mostly) indie pop discoveries mixed with cool soundbytes he finds. He’s got great taste, the show is perfectly edited, and it’s a good way to keep up on new small bands.
Roman Mars curates snappy design/architecture segments that are far from the mainstream. He’s not after the big names, but instead he covers people, places and phenomena that make a subtle but important impact on the design zeitgeist. From the disappearing art of sign painting to public stairways in Los Angeles, each show is short but rewarding.
