Christmas Dressing

Christmas Dressing

Nothing is more fun than dressing up for a fancy-schmancy party.  Seriously, when I got the invite to attend a holiday get-together on a yacht (like I said, fancy-schmancy), I immediately knew I wanted a big, BIG dress!  This Val Stefani gown fit the bill, and I love that I got to add my own little bit of style to it with the vintage striped tee.  Very me, no?  Plus, it’s definitely going to be a bit chilly out on the water, so layers are essential!   Wish me luck to not fall overboard and also wish me so much warmth!

Surf in Paris with Layers.

Surf in Paris with Layers.

Just when I thought winter would never come… It’s frigid!  No, that’s totally an exaggeration.  My fingers are frigid, but it’s almost 60 degrees outside.  I know I shouldn’t be complaining because I know some of the country is ACTUALLY frigid right now, but I’m cold!  The only way to beat the weather in LA when it dips below the average temperature of 71 degrees?  Layers!  Layers are such an awesome way to experiment with shapes and patterns, which is absolutely my favorite thing in the world. Obviously. It’s actually kind of funny how this outfit came to be.  It started with the Surf in Paris t-shirt from Millimétré (see my other killer scores from them in this post), but I was a little cold and I wanted to put something under it to keep me warm, so on went a turtleneck dress. The dress was shorter and I knew I would want more coverage, so I put on the boots.  I was STILL cold, so I put this wool skirt on under the dress, and it kind of peeked out the bottom, which was cute, but I needed more!  So then I decided enough was enough, and I got back in bed. After warming up under a mound of blankets, I decided to give life a try again.  I definitely liked the skirt and the tee together, but this time I reached for a top that buttoned all the way up to cover my neck, plus added a little pattern.  On went the boots again, because of course, how could I not?  BUT I WAS STILL COLD.  Idea!  My...

While this vintage jumpsuit might not look like much, it’s one of the fundamental pieces in my wardrobe.  Mostly because it’s the easiest thing to throw on, but also because it actually says something.  What does it say?  Well, it kind of just says that I am lazy, but also that I found something unique and I’m not afraid to wear it! To be honest (or TBH, is that what the kids are saying these days?), one of these jumpsuits isn’t that hard to find, you could probably find one today if you looked around a bit.  I even linked to ones that are new that are quite a lot like this one, in case you aren’t into the vintage hunt kind of thing.  As for the hat?  This hat!  I can’t express to you in words how very awesome this hat via Millimétré is.  The most magical blue felted wool and perfect shape… I’m kinda making it sound like you will have super powers when you wear it, and it’s pretty much not far from that.  I mean, the ability to cover up a bad hair day at any given moment is quite the super power, no?  And now we are to the shoes (also via Millimétré) and Valas Los Angeles bag!  Shiny shoes?  No brainer.  White bag that’s so fresh and oh-so-clean? Done!  Wearing three statement pieces like the hat, bag, and shoes all in one outfit can be hard sometimes.  This is where the jumpsuit comes into play.  If you have a larger canvas of clothing to play with, say something like this green jumpsuit or...

Five, Fringe, Three, Two, One.

Why hello there!  I feel like it’s been forever since I have posted, although it has only been one week… That’s quite a long time in the blog world!  I’m still here though, alive and kickin’ and also getting dressed!   Let me tell you a little bit about this Alli K dress!  I got it specifically for New York Fashion Week and let me tell you, it got more than it’s share of wear time.  I kept throwing it on for everything!  Too tired to get dressed?  Throw on this dress.  Going to a party?  Throw on this dress.  Just want to be comfortable?  Throw on this dress.  I’m not kidding you, I wore it on four of the seven days I was there.  I’m sure the people I kept running into were like, “Did this chick not bring any more clothes?”  I did.  I brought clothes enough for eight days even though I was only there for seven, but when something just feels right, well… You go with it.   This dress just feels right and it’s the fringe, I’m pretty sure.  Actually maybe it’s the mesh detailing along with the fringe.  OR!  Maybe it’s the mesh detailing along with the fringe, along with the fact that it’s the most fun you could pack into a little black dress.  I dunno guys, it’s just awesome, you’ll have to get one for yourself to know what I’m talking about.  Go on now, do it!  Dress: Alli K // Top: Adeline Pour Vous Vintage // Shoes:...
Win-win kind of outfit.

Win-win kind of outfit.

I think it’s safe to say this is some of the most chic pajama dressing there is.  Comfy drop crotch shorts & a cute sweatshirt made perfect by heeled boots!  The sweatshirt of course has elements of it’s own that take it out of lazy day territory, with it’s geometric quilting and rather awesome snake graphic.  And the shorts?  Well… FRINGE.  Pretty sure I have worn this outfit three times in the last week.  Don’t judge me. I’m smack dab in the middle of a love affair with these red vintage boots too, so what better way to take my all black, all-too comfortable outfit to the next level! And the clutch?  The clutch gives the whole outfit a little something extra.  I think a black bag would have been too obvious but the tan one stands out against the outfit, while still being pulled into it with the tans and golden yellows of the snake.  This is what we call a win-win outfit my friends, now go snag this sweatshirt for your own!  Sweatshirt: Norwegian Wood // Shorts: Rachel Comey // Boots: Vintage // Bag: Marie...
