Ilana and I met at orientation for our masters program at USF. We clicked right away-- maybe it's because we're both NorCal girls who went to San Diego for college. Or maybe it was our matching pink lipstick and fur jackets. Whatever it was, I am glad that we met.

Ilana is absolutely gorgeous-- inside and out. She keeps me up to date on the music scene and I'm pretty sure she goes to concerts five nights a week. I don't know anyone cooler. It has been fun to have classes together over the past two years. I know Ilana's passion, empathy, and insight will make her a great therapist.

I've ask her to share her perfect pairs with all of us less cool bandaids, so enjoy!

It was her birthday yesterday, so I also wanted to wish her a Happy Birthday!!! xoxox

classic black dr. martens: i wear mine almost everyday, and have been wearing them for years. super comfortable and edge up any outfit. also great for sf urban hiking. you can get them at the dr. martens store on upper haight, their official website, or at nordstrom.

converse high tops: i have been wearing them consistently since i was in second grade. avid fan. I currently own 3 pairs in different colors. great for making a little skirt and top and/or dress more casual. also, really easy to break in. if you go to the converse store downtown on market you can find every color imaginable. 

jeffrey campbell wedges: i am horrible at walking in heels, so if i am forced to be in something fancier, i always go for a chunky wedge. jeffrey campbell's are my favorite because they are comfortable and funky.
