Outside of Paula’s master suite is a balcony that makes Swiss Ave. feel like morocco. The extended loungers, Ikat pillows and casual candle lighting would make any man or woman want to lean back and smoke some hookah.

When you see this paradise, you can understand the inspiration behind her charity-driven product line at GAIA. Natural, global and peaceful.

You may not have a paradise on your balcony, but we all need one in our closets.

Paula’s Helmut Lang Fur sweater jacket was a find from shopbop (who just started a fall SALE!) and a fall staple for her wardrobe- fur never goes out of style. The asymmetrical hem and ribbed long sleeves help to lessen the bulk in this look and create a lean silhouette.

Her J Brand Bombshell cigarette jeans are incorporated into most looks as they too are lean and flattering. The absence of embellishment on any J Brand jeans is what makes their look so high-end and timeless. No booty needs an extra flap, button or swirl (or to say “JUICY” for that matter).

Speaking of, I was pleasantly surprised to find that Paula’s black suede wedge booties were Juicy Couture. They are a go-to for work meetings and car pull alike.
