Learning a few style lessons outside Black Parrot

Erin and I spotted Andrea inside Black Parrot while we were shooting our gift guide (stay tuned!!!!) and had to force her outside the store to get a photo of her outfit. She was chic from head to toe. Andrea told us she was wearing all H.Fredriksson. Her love of the designer started with this silk dress and then she snapped up the cape off eBay.

Lesson learned: when you find a designer or a brand or a store you love, be a loyalist. And obsessively troll eBay!
