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,...
It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

It’s Fall-ish! Pt. 2

Because one day of cookies isn’t enough.   This outfit from Alli K has single handedly made me want to move to a colder climate.  Ha!  Totally kidding.  Seriously, I’m kidding.  I love me some LA sun!  This set will be perfect for LA once the “winter” hits, you know, when it gets down in the 60s & 70s.  This outfit had me from the start, in all of it’s squiggly goodness.  Plus, I am a sucker for matching sets, and even more of a sucker for matching sets that are comfortable.  This one fits the bill and as soon as the weather got down below 80 (for the short 24 hours that it did), I threw it on faster than you can say squash bottom!  I have no idea why squash bottom, it’s just the first thing that came to my mind… Anyway, it was the perfect outfit for the day paired with my trusty Hare + Hart bucket bag.  I also have it in tan and mint, seen here & here & also 1 million other places, and they have become my go-to bags for running around.  They fit everything!  And I always get so many compliments on them, and who doesn’t like that?!?   Now, go ahead, soak in the awesomeness that is me eating a Pumpkin Pie Cookie with Toasted Marshmallow Ice Cream sandwich in a killer matching set, all the while toting around my bag.  YOU ARE WELCOME.

Turning Summer into Fall.

Turning Summer into Fall.

  The chill in the air is definitely a force to be reckoned with. Although it is a force that is definitely not here yet in LA (and maybe it will never come our way), I know some of you are feeling it, especially as the sun starts to go down. I am not going to lie, I am a little jealous of you who are starting to feel fall, as the heat is starting to get to me over here. Sometimes you just want to wear a sweater, ya know? So this post goes out to you, all you non-Angelinos, who are taking on the chill full-steam ahead! Transitional dressing is some of the hardest for lots of reasons. What colors do you lean towards? Is it still okay to wear white? Are pretty florals out until the heat comes back? Is houndstooth okay for spring? Who cares about all of these rules anyway?  No worries, I’m here to tell you to do what you want! And I’m here to SHOW you how to do your summery dresses for fall. I know, you would be lost without me, so let’s get started… It all starts with that summery floral print dress that you so loved all summer. But why give it up now? You have to put it away for months on end just because it’s started to get a little chilly?   NO WAY!  The key is layering something nice and toasty over it, and pairing it with the right shoes for a fall touch.  I used the most playful, summery, spin-worthy dress  there ever has been and...
