This probably isn’t the first time you’ve heard of Sarah Staudinger, and it likely won’t be the last. Known to her friends (and Instagram followers), as '@staud', Staudinger helped launch cult label Reformation before setting out to create her own eponymous brand (which she fittingly called STAUD). It’s quickly become known for its accessories (there seems to be a Bissett bucket bag spotted on every New York corner), and her new faux-mink bag, the Deneuve, is a winter must-have. Like any good label, STAUD the brand is a direct reflection of the Staud the girl. Its laid-back, easy to wear separates and rompers make getting dressed in the morning really, really easy, while her accessible price points make it a contemporary label to have on speed dial. Here, Staudinger shares five new things she can’t stop thinking about, including a new app that has become her full time obsession, and her favorite restaurant.
REBECCA DE RAVANEL's SARA beaded earrings. I'm going to Mexico this week and cannot wait to wear them.
The new STAUD GRACE BAG in butterscotch is my new obsession. I’ve been wearing it every day since it came out
RADIOOOO I’m obsessed with this app called Radiooooo. It's the most beautiful app I have ever used and is a really fun way to find new music from all over the world. The only thing is I can’t figure out how to connect it to my Sonos system so if anyone knows how to do that please let me know..
A friend of mine from Farrar Straus and Giroux sent me some amazing books to read. I'm currently reading THE SELFISHNESS OF OTHERS AN ESSAY ON THE FEAR OF NARCISSISM by Kristin Domek. It’s a very compelling sort of scary cultural reflection. It’s a quick read and really moving.
KISMET is this amazing new restaurant in Los Feliz. I've eaten there probably five or six times since its opened, it's sort of a youthful take on modern Mediterranean. I also really like their branding. I want to steal a napkin every time I go ( I don't though, promise).
