Scare me







In the name of Halloween ... booooo... hehe! I missed out on Halloween as I am in Dallas for work. I didn't think I cared that much about missing up on playing dress up and face painting until I found these pictures. The make up on this Halloween inspired Planet Blue lookbook is amazing! Bambi just kills me with her fierceness every time. Total girl crush, this shoot via Dossier and who wouldn't want to dress up as Madonna in her sex bomb days....! The rest of the shots via Studded Hearts displaying the amazing Photography by Tim Walker also dedicated to Hallows eve... What did you do for halloween? XOXO

Timbo Me




- Sweater by One Tea Spoon, Hat by Madewell, Shoes by Timberland, Bag by Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace by Dogeared

Hype on Lookbook if you like?! Here

Hey when was the last time you wore your Timberlands. I wore mine last week to a Timberland event at Nordstrom in South Cost Plaza, I had the whole staff going crazy over them. I mean they are the originals and I totally forgot how comfortable they were and that they are so not just for hiking the Swiss Mountains. Timberland is giving away free trips to Sun Dance... fingers crossed I want to go so bad. I need some snowy wintery days in my life. Second of all... I always wondered what a beautiful Mall like this looked like after hours well this is it its kind of creepy and totally just made me want to get stuck in there all night and play dress up!

Jacket Heaven












Living in California now I can only dream of wearing any of these beauties but let the dreaming begin. Here are my top five Fall Jackets. The Wunderkind fur collar and sheep wool bright red coat is an absolute dream and takes the lead just for the fact that it stands out and is still totally timeless. The details are perfect! Those leather buckles are perfectly placed to down play the fringe in the front. LOVE IT! Maybe for a NYC visit? Well I will just keep dreaming of it... that works too.

The gates of LA




- Sweater from LF Stores, Shoes Matiko Morgandy Wedges - 
Hype on Lookbook.nu 

A full day of work and then walking to my car I heard the loudest party noises coming from the alley! Obviously had to check it out and found that there was a movie being filmed where they for sure were pretending to be at an italian wedding! I have also come to a conclusion that what I love most about California weather is the perfect temperature to wear shorts and sweaters with booties! Not to hot or cold...evaaaa!

Gypsy05















This week I attended Style Fashion week's Gypsy Spring 12 show. The entire event blew me away. It was the most amazing production. The energy was crackling from beginning to end. Gypsy's Spring 12 collection was amazing and most important it was completely wearable for anyone and so California style driven. The LA based brother and sister designer duo make it so easy to relate their pieces to your everyday life. The show took me on an adventure through what seemed like their travels of life. "Luxe fabrics, lace insets and asymmetrical hemlines add a whimsical elegance". The color palette floated from earth tones to pastel colors which are my absolute fav. Stephanie Pratt from The Hills, Seventh Heaven star Beverley Mitchell, the boys from Sum 41 as well as Jeremy Piven from Entourage enjoyed the show from the front row. The after party kicked off with a live performance by Bad Decisions featuring Jeremy Piven on the drums. What a night!

Freedom is not Free






"Freedom is not free, someone had to pay for it" this quote just made my day. What seems like weeks ago I shopped Abbot Kinney in Venice. One of my fav streets for coffee shops, antiques, interior design, restaurants and this pop up shop by the name of The General Store. I fell in love with their jewelry collections and made that amazing anchor ring mine right away.Yay for local designers. So happy I got to snap a couple pics of their displays. Follow their next pop up! HERE

Pure talent







SO excited to share these with you. Olivia Malone is absolutely amazing. Her work takes you on a journey through her travels, muses and inspirations. I spent a good 2 hours trying to decide what pieces to highlight as I love everything! A little sunday treat .... check out her web site here.

Obsessed with... ACB by Annie Costello Brown







Completely obsessed with this label ACB by Annie Costello Brown. Possibly my favorite Jewelry collection out there right now. So many different details and thought in every piece with a little bit of a vintage infusion and modern edgy touch to it. Shop these pieces on Charlie and Lee, here! I am saving up, for now day dreaming of making any of these mine!

Keeping it LA






Designer: JEN AWAD –http://www.jenawad.com/ Photographer: JAKE NARCISO - http://jakenarciso.com/ Producer: KAREN LACANILAO - http://fashiongroupie.com/ Make up: Kishan http://www.facebook.com/NingyoHime 

A huge thank you to Karen of Fashion Groupie for producing this photo shoot. This day was all about promoting local designers as well as local Make up artists, Hair stylists and of course local bloggers. Each blogger had a chance to model three looks we pulled from our selected designers. I was so fortunate to get to work with the talented Jen Awad pulling from her white collection which is for a resort delivery. The pretty dresses and my favorite new romper were a perfect fit and so fun to style. All accessories are my own, Jewelry credits go to my girl Sophie a local Vancouver, Canada designer called Lisbeth Jewelry and One of a kind bracelets from Charlie and Lee (shop online! its amazing)  and my shoes are all Matiko also a local brand! I had such a blast and am so lucky to have met all these beautiful and talented ladies. When's the next one? :-)
