We heart Sofia

We’ve been following screenwriter and director, Sofia Coppola, for the better part of a decade now, and we really admire her understated style. When she glams it up for the cameras we are completely joyful. She’s adorable in this Anna Sui frock, the same body as our very own Psychedelic Floral Dress. Long time fan of Anna Sui, Sofia embraces the line’s bohemian, rock-and-roll aesthetic, and we love it too! Check out more Anna Sui here. Psst, and if you’re in the know, you’ll use promo code: peacelove20 at checkout for an additional 20% off your purchase! (offer expires Dec. 31, 2009)

Anna Sui butterfly tunic for Fall

Lately we’ve been thinking a lot about the Anna Sui Butterfly tunic for Fall. Having this vibrant piece now is assurance that you won’t be feeling the winter blahs in the months to come. We love it under a leather bomber or motocycle jacket with jeans, and if you’re petite, you can get away with wearing it as a dress with super high loafer wedges. If you feel like there’s too much volume on top, it looks really fantastic with one of our Ada leather wrap belts. Start planning your Fall and Winter wardrobe, and include lots of color!

Freshen up that black tee

We found a great way to freshen up your basic black tee. For the rest of Summer and beginning of Fall try wearing your boyfriend’s black tee tucked into a cute little mini skirt like Ingrid (above). It’s a casual, yet sophisticated look and we love the bootie sandals she’s wearing. So next time you’re having a rough time putting together an outfit, go for this look!

Just in: Anna Sui Spring group 3

Happy Friday everyone! Yesterday 3 new Anna Sui Spring pieces arrived. In the group are the Constellation dress (pictured), Ombre Violets dress, and the Circle Venise tee in black. We love the black, cream, violet and royal blue colors of the group, really rich for late Spring and early Summer.
Also, we’re making great progress on the Menlo Park space and are on time for its late May opening. Have a great weekend!

Dressing for warm weather

Anna Sui Spotted Horses Dress available at Josef Boutique, San Mateo

With the warm weather in full effect, we wanted to share some summer dressing tips to keep you cool and looking stylish. If you’re in an office, a summery skirt made of linen or cotton in khaki or navy will do the trick. We like full minis and straight pencil cuts for skirts. To complement your skirt, invest in an embroidered or floral tunic blouse and wear it tucked in or out. For more casual occasions try a sleek pair of skinny jeans and a perfectly relaxed fitting t-shirt. Embellish the casual outfit with a stack of bracelets, thread or metal, your favorite pair of sunglasses, and studded or metallic sandals. On those really hot days, your best bet is a knee skimming, thin-strap sundress or a mini sheath style dress. You can wear either dress with ankle wrap platform espadrilles – they’re our latest obsession. The outfits in this post would also make a very good mini wardrobe for a spring or summer excursion to a destination of your choice. (We’re thinking Barcelona!)

Anna Sui dress. wear it now and then in spring

Isn’t this dress a beyoot? It’s part of Anna Sui’s Resort 09 collection. You might think it’s a little too chilly out there to wear it now, but anything’s possible in the name of fashion. For winter layering is key. Start with black leggings. Then in this order pile on the clothes: short silk slip, black cashmere turtleneck sweater, the dress, warm socks, black motorcycle knee boots, and finally your winter wool coat.

The dress is 100% rayon matte jersey and made in the USA ($425). Available at Josef.
