Every once in a while I am called to duty to step in as the talent for a Betabrand photo shoot. My boyfriend Jason has been working as their lead photographer for a number of years now. Not only do I get to hang out with him for a bit but he also typically buys me dinner. A win win for me. Continue reading MISSanthrope Hoodie From Betabrand
It is pretty easy to guess what the hashtag #RedPantsFriday is all about – wearing a pair of red pants on Friday. It is a silly, popular trend that is Tweeted, Instagramed and Facebooked every Friday. So it is no surprise that Betabrand, an ultra internet-savvy company, designed a pair of women’s red pants for #RedPantsFriday. Continue reading Betabrand Women’s #RedPantsFriday
I was excited for the opportunity to style and model both pairs of the Betabrand Two-Faced Britches. I was asked to put together a retro like look for the Gray Two- Faced Britches, and thanks to my sister’s Rockabilly style influence, that was an easy task.
My first look is a fun summer outfit, a black Rockabilly tank top and a pair of sandals. Since these pants are its own statement piece, I decided to stick with black and throw in a white purse to play off the two-faced aspect. I absolutely love the print on these pants, and like the other pair of Two-Faced Britches (click here to read my post on the Teal Two-Faced Bricthes) – the solid color in the back is a really nice contrast.
One way to liven up a pretty basic outfit, is to switch out blue jeans for a pair of printed jeans. I adore printed jeans, but they must be a flattering slim fit with a tapered bottom and comfortable with some stretch. Wearing a printed jean is an easy way to look fashion forward, without trying too hard. But the trick is knowing how to pull them off – stick with solid colors on top (preferably black or white), and wear a solid color shoe, whether it’s a heel, sandal or bootie. Stay away from knee high or mid calf length boots and other prints – unless you are purposely making a bold statement, but be careful you can quickly look like a hot mess.
I own many different pairs of printed jeans, but what makes the Betabrand Teal Two-Faced Britches so unique, is the front side is printed while the backside is a solid. I love that! As some have said, it’s a party in the front, business in the back (lovely mullet reference).
It’s no surprise that a fairly large portion of my life consists of sitting in a saddle, either pedaling for pure enjoyment and/or a purpose. I prefer just the pure enjoyment bit, but a lot of times it’s either to the office, an off site work meeting and/or an appointment where changing is really not an option. My boyfriend, Jason (Betabrand Photographer and Bike to Work Pants Advocate) had given me in the inside scoop that Betabrand was coming out with a Women’s Bike to Work Pants line.
I was thrilled the women were equally going to be given the opportunity to sport the bike to work pants. Functional trousers with a reinforced crotch, a higher back rise for coverage, and a subtle stretchiness for better mobility. Not to mention the reflective cuffs and rear V-flap pullout. Of course I jumped at the opportunity to style and model a few looks.
The first look is typical bay area business casual. I paired the trousers with a pair of booties from Luxury Rebel and a stripe black and white top from French Connection. Simplicity at its best.
The second look is more of a running around town kind of outfit. Thankfully, I am able to get away with wearing this to my office (and most can with a relaxed office dress code). I paired the trousers with my SPD compatible DZR Kowloon, a stripe tank from Free People and a jean jacket from 7forallmankind. Continue reading Betabrand Women’s Gray Bike to Work Pants
Admittedly, I’ve watched this a dozen times already – I can’t stop laughing at the silliness. I had such a fun time being part of this collaboration at Huckleberry Bicycles in San Francisco with Planet Booty and Betabrand. Enjoy!

The dresses from Betabrand’s new women’s line are absolutely adorable; the patterns, colors and prints compliment spring perfectly. One of the most recent dress releases is the teal Occasional Dress; a raglan cap-sleeved dress with a beige floral pattern lace over a teal satin lining. This dress is even more stunning in person; the lace pattern is a little thicker than what I’ve normally seen with lace dresses, giving it a higher quality look and feel.
I am really excited to share my recent project with Betabrand – modeling and styling the Elope Dress. This is the first piece they’ve launched from their women’s line and I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to come up with a few looks. Continue reading The Elope Dress from Betabrand
