Local coffee roasters. We recently gifted Blue Bottle “Small Lot” Coffee to friends of The Webby Awards in Tokyo during our Webby Talks tour visit and it was very well received. Everyone can appreciate quality coffee.
What was the most fashionable thing you last bought?
A vintage 1950′s tie clip. Waiting for the perfect event to wear it — perhaps the 17th Annual Webbys?
What destination are you most looking forward to traveling to right now?
Just returned from an amazing trip to Tokyo, but now I’m looking forward to heading back to the West Coast to spend time with my family.
What’s on your style wish list?
Big fan of Acne — their jeans, khakis, anything from them is always at the top of list.
What’s on heavy rotation in your wardrobe currently?
More Acne pants! Can never have to many.
