MAXI MINT

July 23, 2016


I don't normally wear maxi dresses, yet... every once in a while, if I happen to come across something particularly special like this off the shoulder mint dream dress for example, I don't mind making an exception! Perfect in every possible way, I really can't decide what it is that I love most about it, the color, the off the shoulder factor, or the movement ( you know how much I love dresses that move  - another twirl-worthy favorite here & here ). Perhaps, it's the combination of all of the above, but whatever it is, I am completely and utterly obsessed with it at the moment!


CHANEL BLUES

July 21, 2016

Well, my obsession with vintage and hard-to-find designer favorites has reached absolutely astronomical proportions recently! It all started a few month ago, when I spotted a Chanel canvas tote in an old magazine and fell in love with it the moment I saw it! I looked for it everywhere, I think I called every Chanel store in US hoping they could find one for me, but alas, I got the same response wherever I called. The bag was no longer available, and my chances of finding one were pretty much slim to none.


LITTLE RED DRESS

July 19, 2016

I think I've always loved the color red... I don't know what it is really, but something about wearing this particularly vibrant hue makes me feel like me the most! I also noticed that whenever I shop for something, my eye naturally gravitates toward this color, which is probably why my collection of red pieces is always expanding:) Today's little red dress is my latest find and newest obsession. Flirty and fun, it has this incredibly easy, summery vibe, yet it's oh so très chic at the same time! Love that!


TAKE ME TO THE BEACH

July 16, 2016


Though I love Palm Springs ( our last two visits here & here ) and always look forward to spending a few relaxing days indulging in some pool time fun, when the temperature climbs up all the way to 117 degrees ( 47 degrees celsius ), even I, a person who normally loves the heat, find myself wishing for a slightly cooler weather:) Thankfully, out of the 4 days we spent in Palm Springs last week, only Thursday was this hot, and the rest of the time it was really quite lovely, so we've had ample opportunities to work on our tans!


BLOCKED HEELS & HOLLYWOOD BLUES

July 14, 2016


Wearing yet another one of those outfits comprised entirely off all my current favorites! By now, I am sure you know just how obsessed I am with off the shoulder tops, but if an off the shoulder top also happens to be striped and blue, well... that's even better!

Another current obsession is blocked heels, and these Gianvitto Rossi sandals are definitely my favorite pair at the moment! Though they have a very easy-going, nonchalant appeal, the wrap around ankle detailing, combined with a really chic criss-cross open toe, definitely takes them into a statement-shoe territory, which makes them pair well with casual and dressy pieces alike! I also really appreciate how comfortable they are. Now, you know I wear heels a lot and honestly, I do sacrifice comfort if I happen to really like the way a shoe looks. But these babies are both, gorgeous and comfy! Naturally, I am obsessed!


MAUI MEMORIES + LO & SONS TRAVEL ESSENTIALS

July 12, 2016


Though we've been back in LA for a little over a week now, I am still dreaming of our Hawaiian adventures! To say that Maui is beautiful, is to say nothing at all! Pretty as a post card, everything about Maui is absolutely perfect! I mean it! The weather, the beaches, the food and of course the atmosphere, which somehow feels easy and welcoming at the same time!


BLACKOUT : HIGH RISE DENIM + OFF THE SHOULDER TOP

July 9, 2016


Wearing what has become a uniform of sorts for me lately - flare jeans and an off the shoulder top! Though I have been practically obsessed with anything off the shoulder in general as of late ( last sighting here & here }, what I particularly love about the one I'm sporting in today's post, is the fitted silhouette. So good with anything from jeans and voluminous bottoms, I also love the way it layers under tailored pieces, like suits for example.
