I am so in love with this Zara blouse, it is the go to piece in my closet right now and so are the Ace ankle boots by Matiko. They are simple and classic and still somehow spice up any outfit. For Thanksgiving I went on the most amazing get away to Santa Barbara (post coming soon) and treated myself to this new LF Sweater which is the perfect addition to my Fall closet.

More WINTERlove












LF Store, Winter Wonderland Lookbook 

LF Stores does it again. Possibly my favorite of all time! The colors are insane, the chunky knits the dark lips the very many layers, so many different fabrics and sky high heels with knee high socks. All looks I cannot resist. I have a gift certificate but I cant decide what I want to use it on... there is just so much.

Aritzia Wilfred Winter 11 Lookbook

The effortless beauty in this Wilfred Winter collection represents this Aritzia's private label toa tee. Wilfred uses the most incredible fabrics and creates easy to wear pieces that you can mix and match into your existing wardrobe so easily. I love every piece ... especially this last pleated skirt and the brown knit cardigan. If you are in NYC check out their SOHO location! It will blow your mind. Love to Vancouver for bringing us Aritzia.

TopSHOP









Top Shop Holliday Lookbook 

Possibly obsessed with this holiday look book that Top Shop just put out. I've been shopping at Top Shop for so long... maybe it even started my fashion addiction but it was a must visit spot while visiting my Dad in London and still is now only it has moved closer to NYC and new and exciting Citys around the world including Melbourne Australia. So forward yet totally wearable AND affordable.

DIY Sparkle Ombre


My secret to none chipping nails is quick dry base coat and top coat by Revlon. 

OPI sprakles: Mad as a hatter
Chanel: Blue Satin 461


After applying the base coat apply the color to all your nails.


Apply two coats and wait until they are all dry.


Start your ombre effect by brushing once over half of your nail. The sparkles apply unevenly which is perfect for this look. Wait until dry again and apply the second coat of sparkles just to the tip of the nails to give the sparkles a layered effect. Wait until they are dry and apply the top coat. 


DONE! Easy right... 

I love doing my nails and this little idea I thought I would share. Since ombre is the ultimate look this season why not implement it on your nails. Follow my steps. Happy painting. Let me know how they turn out.

Stacy Sterling I LOVE



Red carpet before entering the Pop up shop located in the Studio


Cody Christian from "Pretty little liars" showing off his Crystals by Stacy


Rachel Brook Smith from "Lip Service" posing on the red carpet





Only in Venice does an alley way turn into a red carpet. Driving by you would have never known this amazing studio space excised. On a normal day the studio belongs to photographer Alberto Bevacqua, but the lights cameras and red carpet gave away that there was something special going on. This star studded launch party was to celebrate the incredible jewelry designer Stacy Sterling
Her designs are inspired by an earthy spiritual background. Adore her work and usually get my Stacy fix at LF Stores. Feathers, Crystals and leathers are all part of her collection, not to forget are my favorite skull bracelets and necklaces. The collection on display looked amazing... of course shopping was encouraged especially as all proceeds went to the "keep-a-breast foundation"
