All of the pretty things.

All of the pretty things.

Generally I am not a fan of the yellowy, sun going down, perma-70s picture, or as so many people more eloquantly put it, the “golden hour” light, but here with this outfit, it feels so right!  Maybe it’s the leather jacket or something, I’m not sure, but I’m into it. This outfit is really one of the easiest things to wear and it all starts with the shirt dress from Loup!  A white button up shirt dress is always good to have on hand, not to mention one with all of the pretty things a girl needs in life i.e. red lips, flowers, wine, cute panties, etc. printed on it.  It’s entirely too easy to make pieces like this fit into so many different seasons and situations.  Luckily for me, I live in LA and the season and situation here for about 358 days of year is 70 degrees and chill.  For those of you out there who are actually experiencing winter, you can always layer with a pair of heavy jeans, boots, and the biggest blanket coat you own! The day I shot this, it just so happened to be on the cooler side of LA weather so I went with a leather jacket (yes, it’s the most perfect brown vintage leather jacket that there has ever been or will ever be, I know), and some knee highs.  From there, it’s all about the little details you add!  A bandana tied around my neck and killer platform lace up shoes from Valas Los Angeles did it for me.  I mean, come on with these shoes and their buttery tan suede! ...

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!

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:...
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...
IT’S A ROBOT.

IT’S A ROBOT.

I’m really, REALLY, into knee high socks right now.  I have no idea what spurred the whole thing… possibly that it’s one of the only aspects of fall that I can actually bring into my wardrobe when it’s 85+ degrees outside.  (Are you sick of me complaining about the heat?  Cause I’m sick of it.)  Either way, I’m into the socks.   Ankle boots are a great accompaniment to such socks and then of course, the real winner here, a short little shift dress from House of Cannon. But, my friends, not just any little shift dress.  ONE WITH A ROBOT.  Yes, a robot!  In case you missed it in the pictures above, it’s a robot.  A pink one even, and I’m pretty sure nothing goes better with boots and knee highs than a shift dress with a bright pink robot on it. Honestly, nothing goes better with anything than a bright pink robot.  How many times have I said robot in this paragraph?  If you don’t get it by now, there is no hope for you.   Now that we have that cleared up, I still needed a bag.  I really liked the idea of pulling more fall into the look, while also adding a bit more interest, so I chose a bag with autumnal hues and a woven pattern.  I like this bag as a day-to-day kinda bag, but it would also be perfect as a carry on!  Multifunctional pieces are where it’s at people!   Then, to balance the whole thing out, as there was a lot of dark towards the lower half of my body,...
