    Shall We Sasa

  32. Shawna says:

    One of my FAV outfits! If you are in the Hollywood area I suggest going to SUR restaurant. Although trendy, the food is VERY good and the atmosphere is even better! Flowers (roses and peonies!) and candles EVERYWHERE <3

  33. Liz says:

    I’m loving the black with the tan boots! So chic. And that bag is amazing!!

  37. Nicole says:

    Not sure if you like Mexican food or not, but this place is amazing and specializes in their seafood:
    They are in Newport, Irvine, and Vegas.

  38. Tammi says:

    Your bag is covered in lint, your sweater is covered in pet hair and your lip liner is too dark for your lipstick, honey.

  39. Lisa says:

    Have fun in LA! I would highly recommend The Ivy on Robertson and The Chateau Marmont! Also Dan Tana’s is quite the experience for Italian food.


  40. Kim says:

    Pinks Hot Dogs, MILK, check out Flicka! (It’s a children’s boutique) at Larchmont Village! Or Kitson in Hollywood by the Kodak Theater

  41. Love this all black outfit Rach and the boots are gorgeous!

  46. Paige says:

    This outfit is gorgeous! I’m obsessed!


  47. Ellese says:

    Such a beautiful and classic look! I love the jewelry you paired with it. It stands out against the all black look. Enjoy warm LA! I always love visiting Santa Monica, and there are tons of great restaurants in that area. Off the top of my head, I remember loving Copa d’Ora for cocktails (reminds me of a speak easy in nyc), for food I loved Blue Daisy is amazing for Brunch, and Tar and Roses for the best dinner! Hope this helps. XO, Ellese


  48. mary says:

    Those booties are TOO CUTE! Love them and this whole look.

  49. I adore those boots and I’m always a fan of the black wardrobe. 😍

  53. Miranda Claire says:

    Oooh! Kava grill for Mediterranean styled like chipotle; Veggie Grill for vegan food worthy of trying even if you’re not; Afters for killer ice cream doughnut sandwiches; M&M Doughnuts for killer doughnuts; Cassia for weird but good food with cultural twists; Gjelia for beautiful patios with great food (fav!). Hope your trip is lovely!

  54. Danielle Judovits Herrera says:

    This look is too cute! Too bad the weather is kind of icky here these next few days, but Nobu in Malibu is beautiful and their sushi is the BEST, hands down. Also Ysabel in West Hollywood is adorable, and Jon and Vinny’s is great for more casual vibe, but still super yummy! Hope you ENJOY!

  55. Love this black on black look! It looks amazing with your long dark hair! Also, love that you paired with light brown booties to break up the look :)


  56. JR says:

    Go eat at the Tasting Kitchen in Venice for brunch, lunch or dinner at Manhatten Beach Post in Manhatten Beach, Gjelina in Venice for brunch or dinner, Mozza in LA for dinner, Ink for dinner, and of course the Shake Shack in Santa Monica for lunch.

  57. Ashley says:

    You look so great. It’s nice to see a simple outfit look so chic :)

  58. Alexis U. says:

    In LA on the Westside, I recommend any and all of the following: Rustic Canyon-Huckleberry-Cassia-Gjlena-Sugarfish-Malibu Farm-Nobu.!!!!

  59. Jessica says:

    I love the all black look, I am so used to seeing you in brights that it’s almost weird haha, but so pretty ! I love the sleeves on that sweater too, they are so fun !


  60. Such a gorgeous, minimal winter outfit! I love the sweater. It looks fab on you! x

    PS: There’s a iPhone case/ Laptop skin giveaway happening right now on

In September of 2011 I created Pink Peonies as a place to document the things I loved. Since then, it has become a creative outlet where I share my personal style though daily outfits, beauty tips, home style and much more!

Ever since I was a little girl I've dreamed of creating my own line. After countless hours of working towards that dream, I've finally launched my first collection!

It's full of classic, feminine and romantic pieces that you'll keep in your closet for years to come and wear over and over again!
