{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!

{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.

{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.

{wear} striped dress obsessed

14 Aug

I am obsessed with striped dresses. OB-SESS-ED. Dressed up, dressed down, boho, uptown — they go any way you want them. I own this H&M version (thank you, $13), and one of my favorite looks as of late includes sheer breezy layers that deftly shield the summer sun and evening chills. Go glam with gold accessories and perhaps a mixed metal or two, and of course sky high-wedges and you’ve got yourself a serious outfit. I wore a similar combo this past weekend to a birthday BBQ during this lovely LA heat wave…

{wear} a high-tops & floral maxi story

8 Aug

I finally got onboard with the fashion sneaker trend. Recently, I snapped up the Topshop wedge high-tops featured here, and my first order of business was to figure out how to wear them and look chic (as opposed to a trend train-wreck). For my tall friends, it’s the fight against clumpy, while for me it’s stumpy. Whichever ‘umpy’ you are, it’s a similar plight in balancing proportions and feminine flair. So far, my favorite combo is the floral maxi dress, a la below…

  1. Rachel Zoe Natasha Scarf Collar Gown, $695
  2. Aerobic Wedge Trainers, $96
  3. American Apparel Large Suede Carry-All Pouch, $56

{frosting} brunching, vintage, summer, & smelling fantastic

vintage earrings from a thrift store in Palm Springs

This has been a week of looking ahead to busy weeks to come, I cleared my weeknight schedule to focus on early bedtimes and healthy workouts. I’m officially a Bar Method addict — exercise focused on pilates, yoga, and dance movements and form really speak to my body, my ballet background, and my small stature. As always, it’s the little things like resurrecting a pair of vintage earrings that I found a couple summers ago at a Palm Springs thrift store, taking the time to reconnect with an old friend after far too long, over brunch, spending an evening at the beach for an outdoor summer concert, and appreciating the value of a great fragrance…. just a few things making me happy this week.

Stellar accessorizing comes in many varieties, but when function matches up with form it’s a special moment. Enter sun hats. Wrinkle-preventer and fabulous-maker.

One of the things I love most about accessorizing is the way simple additions instantly transform a look. Jeans and a tee can go from boring to sweet, to tough, or glam.
