The Things I Wear: To the #WebutanteBall
…as told in instagram pics standing outside in the cool kids section. I didn’t wear a prom dress because those are saved for casual dinners, brunches, and thanksgiving. Duh.
Since Mallory and I were each other’s dates reppin Small Girls PR, we decided to go the matching route… you know, how the Olsen twins used to do it before they decided they were no longer the “Olsen Twins” but rather ‘Mary-Kate Olsen’ and ‘Ashley Olsen’.
Black dresses, white cape-like sheer over shirts, milkmade braids (or half, in my case), and white Portovelos made for a simple but totes adorbs look(s).
Porto, to bring. Velo, referring to travel.
Love, rearrangement of velo.
Portovelo: Bringing adventure and love.
What better way to travel than with shoes made up of adventure and love?
We Small Girls do a lot of traveling, and we needed the perfect spring sneakers to handle our quick trips and sassy style. That’s where our friends (and new client!) Portovelo comes in-
After searching the world (all 7 continents) the makers of Portovelo created the perfect travel shoe. Good for your feet and your style. These cute little slippers have more to them than meets the eye though- with their “Miles to Meals, one step at a time” philanthropy program, Portovelo provides 15 meals to hungry children in need with every purchase of shoes.
The Santorini White, Chealsea Red, London Slate and Pacific Blue harken some of the great places one can travel to- but don’t let your feet or imagination stop you there.
We’re excited to have taken these shoes to LA and Miami and soon to Morocco, Vegas, and Vienna. Woo!
Anyone traveling anywhere exciting this summer?
So excited to be working with Portovelo! They really are great canvas flats - perfect for impromptu dance moments.

Bianca quoted in Racked from the Levi’s x Lookbook.nu party at the Wythe Hotel last week, celebrating the classic denim line’s 140th Anniversary.
We love that in honor of the company hitting the milestone, Racked asked party-goers what they would wear if they were to live to their 140th birthday!
So technically my beloved Star Wars Puma boots are in retirement in a case. BUT, if I were to live to 140, you better bet that I’d take those puppies out for a spin.
Currently Obsessed: …. with this Kelly Wearstler Ornamented Cuff from Charm & Chain
This cuff says ‘screw’ it to your standard stud. You’d think the screw heads would give the look more of an industrial/hardware store vibe, but I actually think this is quite sophisticated. Certainly an interesting twist.

Quoted in this month’s Cosmopolitan Magazine!
Phoebe Lapine, blogger at Feed Me Phoebe (formerly of Big Girls Small Kitchen), wrote this great piece in Cosmo’s June 2013 issue about starting a company with your bestie. It isn’t all fun and games- and can be more idealistic than realistic, as many friends turned partners can attest to.
We’re happy to have been one of the bff biz partners that she interviewed for advice on how to make it work! Running a business with a co-founder and friend is like being in a relationship- making sure that both parties are happy and are on the same page. It’s ok to be working at a goal in different ways, as long as you’re working towards the same vision and the work is complementary. Disagreements are inevitable, but it’s the magic, drive, and the constant communication that will keep it alive.
And you know… spice it up and go on a bff/partner date every once in a while.
Obsessed with this Boys Jacket by Reformation, because you know… #boys.
My Sunday started with waving bye to the beach and a train ride back to NYC, then turned into an awesome day adventure date.
- Taking a Bari Hybrid class in Soho via How About We Couples — trampolines and jumping/dancing around to pop songs = my kind of workout date
- Going for a motorcycle ride - i think i’m getting used to this whole holding on for my dear life driving around trucks and cars on the highway thing
- Stopping by The Great Swamp Wildlife Reserve
- Splitting an ice cream sundae at a diner
