It was too cold, but I did it anyway.

I cannot even explain to you how cold it was when we took these pictures!  It was somewhere around 17 degrees and all I wanted to do was go back inside and curl up in a ball and cry.  It’s like in the winter in LA you just talk about how you are TRYING to wear a light jacket or sweater because you REALLY want it to be cool enough for one, but then you go to NY and all you can do is talk about how you had to take off your down parka to get a decent picture of your outfit.  Then you realize why you live in a place that doesn’t have winter… At least my outfit is still cute, right?  A bright red vintage wool sweater and my over-the-knee Valas Los Angeles boots (that may or may not have never left my feet while I was in NY because of their comfort. YES, I said comfort when talking about over-the-knee boots. GET YOURSELF SOME.), and DING!  I’m done! Okay, maybe I also put a skirt on.  And also I added a few killer accessories like a Boera necklace and Hare & Hart bag.  AND maybe a bright neon pink scarf… Okay, so I was far from done with the sweater and boots.  I guess just thinking about the bitter cold tundra that was New York Fashion Week has my brain a little fried.  Or maybe my brain is a little fried because it is actually a little hot sitting here in my LA apartment as I write this…  The world may never know.  Sweater: Vintage, similar here, here...
When you get it, you got it.

When you get it, you got it.

There is just something about this oversized white button up.  It gets me, you know?  It’s like “Hey, I’m here.  I’ll give you so much room to play.”  While also being like, “You can do this!  You can be an adult that can wear a white shirt all day and not spill anything!  Get it girl.”   And I look in the mirror and I’m just like, “Cool.” The pants have a little of the same magic, don’t you think?  Baggy, but not too baggy.  Cropped, but not capris.  Also, they have a drawstring waistband…. I hope to grow up to have the gumption of this outfit one day.   Shirt: Millimétré // Jeans: Vintage // Boots: Helmut Lang // Bag: Hare & Hart // Hat:...
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...
Suede, meet Leather. Leather, this is Suede.

Suede, meet Leather. Leather, this is Suede.

A bit of an overload of pictures this time huh?  Sorry, but not really sorry.  Sometimes outfits just photograph so well it’s hard for me to choose so instead of wasting my time deciding I just throw them all up… You mad? Didn’t think so.  I know you all just L-O-V-E to see half a million pictures of my bright shiny face!  And on to the clothes!  Did you think I was joking when I said that a black leather skirt is a wardrobe staple?  Besides this one and the little mini I posted a while ago, I also own a vintage black leather pencil skirt.  You seriously can’t go wrong with black leather skirts, throw it on and GET OUT THE HOUSE!  I’m actually really excited to style this one, from Oasis, with an oversized sweater.  The mix of leather and suede are all-too-perfect for fall!   Which reminds me… Guess what!?!  I’m cold right now!  It’s cold outside! In LA!  It’s cold!  Well, it’s “cold”.  It’s like… I don’t know… 64 degrees, which trust me, is FREEZING compared to the 90 degrees it’s been here for the last few months.  Perfect timing to bust out the leather skirts and oversized sweaters, no?

Grids & Duffles.

Grids & Duffles.

If this isn’t the most perfect sweater dress, then I sure don’t know what is!  Grid?  Check.  Turtleneck?  Check.  Perfect body con fit?  Double check!  It’s hard to find a sweater dress that is actually flattering and not just a large bag you throw on your body.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about wearing the bag sweater, but it’s nice to have options people!  I think the print makes it a bit more wearable as well, with horizontal and vertical stripes doing all sorts of things to your eyes and taking them in all sorts of directions, accentuating those lady lumps.   The dress also made for the perfect backdrop to my Julia Gabriel bag, which has definitely become one of my prized possessions, because DUH!  It’s literally perfect.  I love the mix of canvas and leather and the fact that it looks like an upscale, modern version of a duffle bag.  Luh-luh-love it!  I threw on some boots and cute sunglasses and on my way I went!  Dress: C/MEO via BNKR //Boots: Zara // Bag: Julia Gabriel Studio // Sunglasses: Poppy Lissiman Photography by Eli Sims...
