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...
Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

Doin’ So Much Fringe in NYC.

This REBEL wall!  And how perfect with this outfit?  I loved the blue wall as well, which was near the REBEL wall, for the detail shots.  I love when a wall just compliments the outfit so perfectly, it ends up making the entire shoot so much more fun.  It kind of set the mood for the whole thing, you know?  I was obviously on one because look at all of the faces!  I’m just so silly, I know.   The clothes though, let’s talk about those!  I was on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing while in New York.  Who am I kidding? I’m always on a tassel-y/fringe-y thing.  I was so in love with the idea of fringe on my pants and a little extra tassel (in a lot of a extra color), on my neck!  One bright blue & gold Poppy Lissiman choker comin’ right up!  I decided to keep the shirt black & white, to accentuate the choker, and gave extra pops with the red sunglasses and sneaky-sneaks.   These sneakers were such a go-to while running around the city.  So comfortable!  Plus, fringe is made for movin’ and shakin’, so you have to have comfy shoes to do just that.  Again, who am I kidding?  You have to have comfy shoes to do anything in my eyes.  Ain’t no body got time for heels!  Except for sometimes.  Alright, I’m talking myself into one massive hole here because we all know that if you hand me a cute heel, I’mma make it work.   Especially if they have tassels.    Top: The Fifth Label via BNKR // Shorts: Rachel Comey //...
Doing Ninja Pants in NYC.

Doing Ninja Pants in NYC.

 I love the random parks scattered throughout the city in New York.  The little patches of green grass are always begging you to go in and take a breath!  Although my infatuation with them may have a little to do with the fact that there is absolutely ZERO green grass in Los Angeles right now because of the drought…  Either way, take a breath I did, right in the middle of all of the bustle of Chelsea Piers.   So, what better outfit to roll around in the grass with than a tee and ninja pants?  My Lena Dunham Birthday Suit Tee nonetheless!  This tee from Clashist may have been worn one too many times while in New York.  It was perfect for slipping on under or over things when needed, all the while adding quite a bit of interest to anything I was wearing.  Have you guys seen all of the awesome tee’s from Clashist?  And not just shirts, they have some leggings, dresses, swimsuits, and a necklace that I think everyone should have, right here.   And the pants?  Oh the pants!  Also seen in LA Ninja Warrior Ep. 1, I love that I feel like I could take over the world in these pants!  Which frankly was why I decided to bring them along to NY.  You NEED to feel like you can do anything in New York because anything can come up!  The little bit of wind coming off of the water made them even more fun, either blowing them up so I had balloons for legs, or pulling them tight and whipping them around.  All...
Doing Plaid in NYC

Doing Plaid in NYC

Whew!  It’s been a hot second since I’ve posted!  Never fear my friends, I am back and better than ever!  After a big move (big meaning big pain in the butt, not big as in far), and traveling clear over to NYC to attend Fashion Week, I was pooped to say the least!  If I’m being honest with you, I’m still pooped.  Who knew Fashion Week would be SO exhausting?  Especially right after the most draining move I have ever made! Alright I know, poor me.  I’m done. I’m done!  New York really was so much fun and I met some awesome people, including the lovely Karina that just so happened to take these pictures.  (Love you Karina!!!!)  You will hear more about the others I met later this week, but for now here’s one of my favorite outfits from NYFW.  Easy breezy, just the way I like it!  I wonder if you went back through all of my posts how many times I have said that… But it’s true!  I like my outfits to be no fuss and this one fits the bill EXACTLY.   A dress to slip over your head? Check.  A vest to throw on over dress to make it look like you care? Check.  Comfy slides? Check.  Cutest little bag for the essentials? Check!  This outfit wins, therefore I win.  Thanks BNKR and Uber for giving me such an easy outfit and equally as easy way of getting around the Big Apple!  Vest: The Fifth via BNKR // Dress: The Fifth via BNKR // Bag: Hare + Hart // Shoes: Matt Bernson // Sunglasses: Poppy...
