So its no secret that every female is addicted to shoes. I just sent myself on a virtual online shopping spree drooling over Aldo's Spring 12 collection and came up with a selection of wedges, sandals and heels that need to be added to my shoe closet stat. They have the perfect mix of colors, edginess and sophisticated elegance in their collection. Love! Their styles are totally affordable especially with the free shipping they are offering over $75. Lets face it that is easily done. If that is not enough to make you run to your nearest Aldo or simply browse online... then this video they have released will help make your ice cream melt, just try and not let it get on your new shiny shoes. Did you know Aldo is Canadian and was born in Montreal?

One pair of amazing AG jeans totally different looks. Thanks to the LuckyFabb conference I met the amazing people at AG jeans and since then have decided to pair up and make some fashion magic. I got a chance to style these oh so amazing snake print ankle leggings. I chose three different looks that I feel most fit my style I don't know about you but my style is totally influenced by my mood. Wether its girly, hippie or more on the edgy rocker side of things these jeans can go anyway! Whats your favorite look?

Happy Memorial day everyone! Today day is a day to make use of a pool, the beach or some time spent sipping milkshakes in the sun. Last week was crazy and a hang out in the sun needed to happen. So in love with this Gypsy Junkies dress it makes me feel so girly / hippie which is right down my alley! Love the tassel detail and the cut out back just adds that extra bit of look at me I'm so free... haha. Thanks to Fidelity denim for adding my new go to shorts to my closet. They are perfect and I have actually worn them almost every day. This outfit is perfect for Summer by the beach!

Ok... so who is excited for So you think you can Dance tonight? Clearly I am! Its my favorite show on TV. I grew up dancing, ballet, jazz and hiphop so it hits a soft spot in my heart. Also I sort of wish I was on the show, but I think that will stay on my bucket list for ever now. Happy dancing!

Finally get to share this photo story I produced. A couple weekends ago a fabulous team of amazing LA artists came together and made some fun photo and video magic! I love working with new people and this project was one of many to come. Kristy killed the styling featuring amazing pieces by California based BB Dakota and her own Vintage collection NBD Vintage. We had fun in the sun walking around alleys and streets near hancock park looking for cool shots and being creative! Hope you like! Thanks to everyone involved! Let do it again...soon!

Suddenly I have a little bit of an urge to travel! Get out discover new cities and places, maybe its because Summer is upon us and way back when, in high school and college summer meant... your free to do what you please. London is a city I actually grew up visiting my Dad in, walks around Regent Street and lusting after the toy department in Harrods and well a couple years later spending hours in Top Shop and Selfridges! I would love a chance to revisit the royal city and experience the fashion and underground style London has to offer a little more. My guide this time, no offense to my Dad cause he was a great tour guide, would be this handy little App called Shopikon! In the mean time I will "mind the gap" and cruise all the shopping areas and boutiques on my phone! Almost the same!

Leather Jacket by Mackage, Denim Shirt by LF Stores

A Saturday morning spent playing with colors at the Makeup For Ever Boutique in NYC couldn't have been more amazing. Their boutique is lined with brick walls and a loft that is made for Make Up Partys where brides and possibly the cast of the Lion King make their appearances. Etzel the resident Make up artist took me through their entire collection including their HD cover up which you can find at Sephora, and their Flash Color Case that blew my mind as you can create an entire look from start to finish if you know how to mix the colors. Make up forever also answers the question to how the Jersey Shore Cast keep their Spray tans on in and out of the Hot Tub! As for eye shadows, fun colors are what is hot for spring and Etzel pointed out which one is the top color of the season its called Powder Blush Cotton and I love it! After a fabulous tour I got to get my make up done! Etzel used the new pastel purple eyeshadow and their Aqua Shadow pencil on me. The Aqua Shadow is your life saver this summer, you can get all your fav colors to stay put for any pool or beach party and they are now available at Sephora here
