Hitchcock Retreat 2014: Darth Vader is Fancy

Posted by & filed under Mariella Pilato, Uncategorized.

Sometimes we like to get away, feel the bay breeze on our backs, and flex our creative muscles. The summer 2014 Hitchcock Madrona retreat was no different.  After all the meetings we needed to get out the jewels, a ball skirt and, in this case, one borrowed Darth Vader helmet. I decided that if Mr. Vader was Ms. Vader (who wore fashions and jewels) she would be fierce. Right?! There is nothing we like more than a crazy photo opportunity. My son’s helmet was begging for a moment. Welcome to it…enjoy.

Empire Strikes Back with some bling. I have been so into Star Wars fashions – the Vans collaboration, vintage T-shirts from eBay, and cheap synthetic sweatshirts were all must-haves this fall. I guess it is fascination by association – my son lives and dies by Star Wars everything. #BoyMom

Outfit of the Day: KIMONO or KIMON-YES

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Sometimes an outfit just begs to be worn – that is what happened this morning.  The kimono was hanging dangerously close to the pale blue and plaid scarf.  They wanted to be together…the same colors with conflicting cultures.  Star crossed lovers.  Just kidding (no, I’m not).  So, here is the result of my morning sartorial mash-up.  As if the “fit” isn’t enough, add the hair and, as Kate says, “you are so editorial.”  Hahahhaha.  I’ll take that – I know, that coming from her, it is a high compliment (we have lived and died by Vogue and W together for years).

There is nothing like a big, worn, men’s leather belt.  I am obsessed with this vintage one I picked up somewhere years ago.  Cinch this around a ball skirt or your baggy men’s Levis (my two favorite leg treatments) and it adds the perfect rugged/masculine touch (you know I need my boy/girl dichotomy in every outfit!).  High heels required.

Giles & Brother mixed metal chain link necklace.  This is quite possibly the perfect necklace.  It works whenever, wherever, however.  I can’t think of an outfit that couldn’t handle this 18″ layered dreamboat.  Wooters & Hendrix extra large pearl ring.  This ring takes the granny out of the pearl and replaces it with Alice in Wonderland size.

Tom Binns gold and crystal barbed wire bracelet with Giles & Brother jumbo railroad spike bracelet.  Today I am wearing one of my three pairs of Tummel glasses from MOSCOT (excessive, me?  No!).  I can’t live without these!  In black they are relentlessly “Blues Brothers cool” without being the Blues Brothers requisite Wayfarer (which we still wear!  No shade).

How could I not wear this multi-chain necklace by IOSSELLIANI in my hair?  Hair needs more jewelry nowadays.  Right?!  Sport your favorite necklace, brooch or bracelet as a hair ornament and leave the necklace at home.  I am always surprised at how much attention a trick like this garners.  Minds are blown all over the party!

Lulu Frost pearl and crystal earrings – the perfect holiday party ear treatment.
