2.27.12 // Wang and Lang.

Accessories: Sunglasses, Ray Bans // Bag, Top Shop // Peep Toe Wedges, Bamboo // Scarf, William B + Friends

The days are finally getting chilly and sweaters and leather fit the weather. Love this T Alexander Wang sweater mostly because of the color. Its like a gray/lavender and so unique... Leather combo leggings are my beloved Helmut Lang and are so comfortable! So many exciting endeavors happening right now and I will share when they are solidified (hence the late posting)... Happy early birthday to my friend Shane... Loves Yous!

2.22.12. // Sequin Dressing.

Sequins always make a statement in my opinion; day or night...
The reflection it creates is magical and makes me giddy.
This dress was given to me by Stylepiques by the brand Rare, and it is an absolute keeper for every and any fun event.
I wore it out and got so many compliments.... we all love those!

Suede Pumps, Miu Miu // Sunglasses, Mosely Tribes // Blouse, Zara // Jeans, Current/Elliott // Bag, PS1

Another sunny day in Los Angeles; how can I complain. Ive been slowing down my spending habits making looks with clothes I haven't even shot yet. One thing I did recently acquire was this Zara blouse that reminds me of last seasons Givenchy. I absolutely LOVE it and it was only $80.00.

Leva and I went to the Frank Lloyd Wright museum in Silverlake for the day and had a really nice time shooting in all the amazing locations of the destination. I am a huge fan of Mr. Wright and the profound creations he created in his lifetime. Im pretending its cold outside because it is everywhere else but I can not lie or be angry with the warm sun and cloudless skies. Native love...

Just spent a few days in Vegas at PROJECT tradeshow. So many amazing brands, I wish I could share about them all. Just know that you are in for a real treat for Fall 2012.

It was a quick, last minute trip, but I am so glad I had the time to make it.
I am infatuated with the new line BLK denim line, first introduced to me by my photographer and dear friend, Andy, who built out their NY store. Be sure to keep tabs on this one kids... Its hott as hell.

Sunglasses, Dita "Holiday" // Lipstick shade is MAC "Riveting" // Leggings, David Lerner

I have owned both this jacket and these boots for quite some time now and I am so happy I finally got a chance to shoot them. I have acquired so many garments over time that when I really dig in, I find some amazing gems that I had forgotten about or sink to the back end of my closet. The jacket is Wayne and is a faux bird feather and leather jacket. I bought it for myself for my birthday last year (who else buys themselves birthday presents lol). The boots are Jean Michel Cazabat that I got from Barneys and a site to see in real life; thigh high and crave attention (which is why I'm scared to wear them...).

Its been a long day of work but tomorrow I get to play dress up with one of my great friends, Natty as we stroll through the streets of Beverly Hills. Im glad it stopped raining and I am looking forward to blue skies on my day off. :)

Fur Jacket, Cynthia Vincent // Pants, H&M // Wedges, Diane Von Furstenberg // Belt, Reiss // Sunglasses, Dita

Today was a wonderful getting to see my friend Shane at the Grove for lunch like old times. I forget how much it makes me feel good to not stay buried in work. To get out for a while to gab, gossip, and catch up with the people you love is so fulfilling. Went in to Zara where I was so delighted to see their new collection of whites and textures. I bought a really cool long sleeve blouse. It was such a beautiful day here in Los Angeles, one that could not be spent in doors if you had any sense. :)

2.1.12 // When Stars Align.

Snagged these amazing pants at one of my favorite shopping destinations in my native Malibu, Madison Boutique. I didn't buy them with any thought as to what I would wear them with, only that the pattern was so beautiful to me and I had to possess it. They are made by a very cool designer named Karina Grimaldi (I linked her site). Her designs reflect a lot of the Missoni, 70's era, but transcend into a look that is more contemporary and relevant. It is a look which I love when its done right and this girl gets it. I paired it easy with a T by Alexander Wang Tank, an oversized wool open cardigan (since the chill is finally settling in) and a necklace by Fallon from Barneys New York. This discovery makes going to bed so much harder as I want to seek more and more designs by Karina... The Maven Post is conflicted... Hope you enjoy as much as I.
