BOYFRIEND BLUES

September 30, 2012












Lollipop sandals via Pink & Pepper | Boyfriend jeans via Minusey | Sandro Paris blazer | Rebecca Minkoff eyelet mini sweetie bag | Nordstrom Stargazer skinny bangles in gold multi | Cara accessories spiked stretch bracelet 

I am definitely having a moment! For the second time in my life I found a pair of boyfriend jeans that actually fit. My other pair is so worn out at this point, I dare not wear it in public. Up until recently, boyfriend jeans were so elusive I was ready to give up my search entirely. Most of the time, when I try them on, they just look funny, either too tight or way to loose. Basically nothing resembling the perfectly slouchy, slightly lose fit I had in mind. But these ones from Minusey, are a completely different story. Love the distressed look, the fit and color! Too bad they don't come in other washes, cause I would snag them all!



In other news, I also wanted to share a video from Fashion Night Out, which Bonnie from Flashes of Style and I hosted for Pink & Pepper! Funny, even on camera I'm talking about sparkly heels! What can I say, I am weak, very, very weak when it comes to shoes!:)

TURQUOISE TOUCH

September 29, 2012







Sunburst ombre bubble statement necklace via ILY Couture | McQ McQueen Amwell mini cross body bag  - similar here | J Crew chino shorts - similar here | Madewell suede postscript peep-toe wedges | Zara top | Stackable gold triangle rings by Jung Ee Eun via Boticca 


Back to wearing color after a super short mostly black phase. What can I say, from time to time, I get crazy tired of color and long for the simplicity of black. But that never lasts long... So, back to color it is:) 

This one is yet another outfit comprised entirely of current favorites! I picked up these wedges while I was still in New York. Yes, I did manage to do some shopping while I was there. Not as much as I would hope, but then to be completely honest with you, no amount of shopping is really ever enough:)  Anyway, bright turquoise suede, what can I say, it was love at first sight! 

The necklace is an old favorite, you've seen it on my blog quite a bit, and I have a feeling you'll be seeing it again! A LOT!!!! Cause I just found out it also comes in navy and burgundy, my favorite Autumn hues:) This particular one is a favorite because I just love the combination of colors, to me, they are perfect shades for Summer. And as I mentioned before, I am not ready so say goodbye to Summer just yet:)

Emil and I decided we need to take a few days to relax after the craziness of Fashion Week. And it really was crazy!!! So, this weekend we headed to Malibu. Can't believe I haven't seen the beach in 3 weeks! I feel like such a bad California girl:)

I am so happy it's still warn in LA, I don't know about you, but I am not ready to say goodbye to all my Summer clothes. I just can't bring myself to to think that Summer is almost over! Funny, going back to my posts from last year, even at the end of October I wasn't ready to put away my sundresses and sandals! Let's see if I can make it to November this year:) Long story short, I am basically taking full advantage of the weather by wearing all my favorite short skirts. Very fond of leather skirts in general, I really love the texture on this one, which makes it an absolute favorite at the moment!

How about you guys? Have you started shopping for Fall yet?

RAD ROSES

September 25, 2012







Perry tassel suede boots via Bebe | Elizabeth and James leather high low pullover | Haute Hippie floral sequin miniskirt |  Rebecca Minkoff eyelet mini sweetie bag | Low Luv three charms necklace via Glamhouse LA | Michael Kors Bradshaw gold chronograph watchBasilissa pave bracelet via Ily Couture 


I've been looking for a pair of suede wedge boots for some time now. I mean they work with right about everything, from skinny denim to shorts and skirts. So, when I spotted these perfect beauties I knew I found exactly what I was looking for. Granted it is still scorching hot in LA, but they are new, I love them and I simply had to wear them right away. I am sure you know how it is when it comes to new favorites:)  

Of course, I already have a million outfits planned in my head, but this time, I decided to pair them with a sequin mini and a high low leather front sweater. I think they work perfectly to sort of dress down what otherwise could be a pretty dresses up look. What do you guys think?

Mini dress via Milly - similar here | Alexander Wang Nikola mule pumps  | Rebecca Minkoff metal corner clutch  - also loving this color here | Burberry sunnies - cute ones here & here | Givenchy bracelets - other options here & here


Just couldn't resist including a pic of the true fashionista of the day! You know how much I love dogs:) Emil spotted this cutie just outside of Lincoln center wearing a lovely mix of pastels. She turned out to be a great model and within a few minutes gave us a variety of poses and expressions. Which made choosing which one to post that much harder, but in the end, the smiling one won me over:)

I am completely in love with this dress, I got to wear for Milly show. I tried on a few at Milly studios, yet as soon as I put this one on, I knew it was the one! Talk about Milly studios, I am so glad I got the chance to meet with wonderful people behind one of my favorite brands. Personally, I am particularly interested in taking a look behind the scenes, understanding the creative process and seeing how everything comes together. And after meeting everyone and getting a tour of the studious I completely understand why collections by Milly are always so playful, joyful and fun! The clothes are a true reflection of everyone behind this brand! Special thank you to Michelle, Sarah and Natalia! It was such a pleasure to meet all of you!
