{wear} statement bags: say it with an exclamation point

11 Sep

I’m an accessories girl. Pair great shoes, bags, jewelry with jeans and a tee shirt and you can’t go wrong. I’m loving that the statement bag is on trend this season. It’s the punctuation mark of style. Exclamation points encouraged!

Short weeks tend to be unavoidably rough. The weekend just can’t come back again quickly enough. Summer may be officially over, but there’s no shortage of sunshine here in LA. Although after a little Fall shopping, I can’t wait for some cool nights to break out some faux fur!

{wear} 13 must-have fall fashion trends to buy …now.

6 Sep

Fall is undoubtably my favorite time of year. In a perfect world I would spend the whole season in New York from just after Labor Day until the first snow of winter. Fall foliage, brisk fall air, cashmere, pumpkin-flavored everything, the holiday festiveness that invades at Thanksgiving, maybe a mitten… my perfect world is pretty good. But no matter the Coast, I love Fall fashion. After a hot summer of minimal layers, sometimes a girl just needs a sweater, and leather leggings, and faux fur everything, and boots. Don’t forget the boots. BOOTS! With no further ado, enjoy my favorite, lucky 13, trends for Fall.

The week leading up to a holiday weekend always seems to be more hectic than normal. Perhaps it just makes us appreciate that extra day off a little bit more! The LA heat wave continues, priming this weekend for perfect fun in the sun time, BBQs, beach days, and anything and everything to do with savoring the end of summer. Granted, we’re spoiled in these parts and there are still plenty of warm sunshiny days ahead. Kind of takes the thrill out of Fall shopping…J/K! Who am I kidding, I just ordered some new boots.

{decorspiration} blac-cent walls

29 Aug

Whilst talking to myself in my head about this post, I decided to roll with a new word hyphenate – blac-cent. Black accent. It felt like a funny idea at the time. Not sure it’s going to hold up. Nevertheless, a black accent wall is oft considered a bold move. Mostly because it’s really hard to paint over it once you’ve done it, so it’s a pretty high commitment on the paint scale.

Personally, I’m a fan. I fear neither boldness, nor commitments. Here’s why…





less a wall, and more the cabinets, but a similar effect nonetheless

{wear} flat-out fab

28 Aug

Ahh, shoes. Even for the heel-obsessed, vertically-challenged (yours truly), flats are a necessary staple to every stylish wardrobe. While helping a friend shop for a new and improved wardrobe over the weekend, I was inspired by super fun flat styles like the smoking slipper trend, spike adornments, and embroidered skulls and mustaches that might just be enough to make me take an extended break from my stilettos… Ok, not a chance, but every good shoe deserves its moment.

Palm Springs is my happy place. A short drive east, but a million miles away, when I’m in this desert mirage of mid-century heaven, there’s no choice but to relax and decompress. A few girlfriends and I have made a hot August weekend an annual getaway, and it’s a favorite new tradition in my LA life. Here are a few snaps from my trip…

{wear} camo girl

22 Aug

The camo trend is back and I’m pretty happy about it. I love a good casual trend to take us through the end of summer and into the fall. Pair them with a patriotic tank, some killer heels, and a pop of purse color. Don’t forget the metallic mani!
