Prague, Czech Republic as a travel destination; Tootsie’s at the Stanford Barn for brunch (be sure to try their delicious Bomboloni); Coupa Cafe for their Elephant Vanilla Chai (I love the downtown Palo Alto location); Cotogna in San Francisco for dinner (the Pappardelle with Lamb is so yummy!); For cosmetics, add Laura Mercier’s Secret Camouflage to your make-up bag(great for flawless coverage); Kerastase Nutritive Masquintense (this is a hair repair must-have); Elizabeth & James Wildflower Lara Blouse (what a surprise! I never have blouses in my La Listes – hee hee!); The Jenny Slouchy Leather Ankle Boots from Isabel Marant (perfect for weekends spent walking around the city); Vivienne Westwood Anglomania’s Rac Flare Wool Coat in bright scarlet red (because every girl should have a colorful coat in her closet); The Minnie pant from J.Crew (an easy work-wear staple); The Carlos textured-leather tote from Jérôme Dreyfuss (the perfect about-town companion); A pair of Wolford’s Satin Touch 20 (these seriously chic stay-ups are a wardrobe essential).
