Michi Love

  It was cold enough this morning for me to cover my legs, so I finally got to wear my MICHI Illusion leggings that I’ve been dying to don. I’m always on the hunt for unique leggings since I can’t stand wearing jeans 90% of the time, and these are – for lack of a better word – awesome. The detailing and sheer panels are exquisite and flirty enough to add sex appeal without being inappropriate. At 6am and running on 4 hours of sleep, I really couldn’t think much so I threw on an oversized shirt, beanie, sneakers and I was good to go!     +++++++ ON ME: – MICHI Illusion Leggings (here and here) – Free People Zahara Button Down – DIY Wool and the Gang Zion Lion Beanie – Isabel Marant Bazil/Bekett Sneakers – Pamela Love Cage Ring – J.Crew Bracelet FOOD: Break of Dawn – Ranchero Omelette – Green Eggs & Ham +++++ SONG OF THE DAY

My Favorite Go To Outfit

  When life gives you chaos, keep it simple. Work, deadlines, school, errands, events and relationships…looking decent and presentable can seem like  trying task. We’ve all got enough on our plates without having to add looking fashion forward and trendy 24/7 on top of it all. When I’m feeling a little bogged down, I like to dial it down and revert back to basics: t-shirts and jeans. This is my favorite go to outfit when I feel stuck. Dress it up with heels and a blazer, or dress it down with your sneakers and stacked jewelry – you really can’t go wrong. Aside from living in sweatpants all day, nothing beats your most comfortable t-shirt and your favorite pair of jeans, and feeling good = looking good.     Featuring my little ewok, Nima. ++++++++++ On Me: – Worn Thin Skinny Jeans from NastyGal – Pamela Love Cage Ring – Miu Miu Bow Bag

Kenzo Tiger Sweatshirt

 Oh happy days! I actually captured a tiger…a Kenzo tiger sweatshirt, that is. Why are they so hard to get a hold of?! I had all but resorted to looking on eBay and Vestiaire Collective but could never bring myself to pay the exorbitant prices for what may or may not have been authentic. Kenzo’s e-shop doesn’t ship to the US. Opening Ceremony is always a big fat SOLD OUT. What could I do? I had to put it out of sight, out of mind. Lucky for me I stumbled across Filuca V last week, a Danish boutique, and they had just put up the pre-fall Kenzo tiger sweatshirts in navy and dark grey. I gravitated towards the dark grey and they still had a L in stock, so L it was! I am so extremely happy with the muted color way for this collection. I have to say this sweatshirt runs extremely small…I’m usually an XS/S in jumpers and the L fits just right – not too tight but not baggy either. Kenzo Tiger …

Isabel Marant Memphis Boots Gris

Isabel Marant Memphis

Happy days! I finally own a pair of Isabel Marant boots. I  heard they’d been on sale for awhile so I figured I’d give it a shot and call around – couldn’t hurt right? I ended up finding a pair in my size in Ivory, but due to miscommunication they ended up going to someone else. I’ll admit, I was a little miffed, but maybe it just wasn’t meant to be. Then I found out about Odessa in Portland, and they had my size at 50% off…in GRIS! My fingers dialed at record speeds and they arrived at my doorstep in 3 days. The gris is a rich dark grey, and the studs were done perfectly. They are gorgeous.

Isabel Marant Betty Black

Betty and Flavie

The Isabel Marant Betty sneakers…what would I do without them? I’ve become quite the sneaker fiend these past few seasons, but they’re so irresistible! The now popular hidden-wedge-in-sneaker style does wonders for your legs (something I desperately need), and I intend to take advantage of that as much as I can. Espejto had a 30% off fall sale recently and I got my hands on the Isabel Marant Etoile Flavie top I’ve been eyeing for awhile. I love it! The embroidery is flawless and flows perfectly with the fabric. I sized up for a longer and looser fit. Beautiful jewelry from beautiful people. From the top: sterling silver casted sand dollar necklace c/o Linda, bronze casted bobcat claw by Rachel Young (she will be showing at The Festival of Arts in Laguna Beach next year!), Tiffany Elsa Peretti Dove necklace from dear mama. Sorry for the super in your face shot, but I really wanted to show these awesome Iosselliani Skull Earrings! Stay tuned for the Friday Five, a holiday nail tutorial, and holiday gifts …

Comme des Garcons Clutch

Seeing Red

I’ve been searching for the perfect red coat for the past two years, all to no avail. They were either too bright, too dark, too short, or too long. Well..the search is finally over! Free People has deemed me lucky enough this season to own what I’ve been longing for. This “Slouchy Sweater Jacket” – as they call it – is heavenly. The cut, the fabric, the price, and best of all the shade…it’s no surprise they sold out so quickly. Just perfect. Worn with Givenchy Rottweiler Tee & Rag & Bone jeans. New arm swag: Mini Skull Bracelet Cuff by Bing Bang, Double Skull Head Bangle by Anarchy Street, Self-cast silver bracelet, Burberry watch. Comme des Garçons pouch available here. L.A.M.B.

Noupi Head

I have a soft spot for graphic tees + anything cute, and this Noupi tee is the perfect combo. Cinthya (aka Poly Cinco) was wonderful enough to send me one of her Icon tees before release, and I absolutely love it. Noupi is certainly something wonderful eclectic, with designs featuring kawaii doodle chibi characters to sassy Disney princesses. See more Noupi designs here. They’re having a special pop-up shop event August 8th til midnight with limited edition prints, so go check it out! My personal fav is their Noupi Head sweatshirt, fingers crossed they’ll be printing those soon. It’d be a brilliant addition to my casual fall wardrobe.   Wearing: Noupi Head Icon T-shirt available here J Brand Slim Fit Denim Jacket in Atomic Rag & Bone Jeans Isabel Marant Bazil Sneakers 

Arm Party

No Party Like An Arm Party

Nothing like a blinged out wrist? I’ve always loved stacking whatever I could find and fit onto my wrists – and have gotten quite a few looks here and there, asking me if it was heavy or I crazy – so you can imagine my delight when it became an actual trend under the clever names of “arm party”, “arm swag”, and “arm candy”. \(^0^)/ I think I got a bit of jungle fever putting together this outfit the other day. I’m sure it was a culmination of the excitement over my new top and my newfound obsession over these shorts. I’d been lusting after this A.L.C. Lizzie top for awhile but disagreed with the price, so I’ve been on the hunt and finally snagged it during a sale. The shorts I actually bought awhile ago, but the confidence to pull them off or wear them was never there…until now. Shorts have never really been my thing (same goes for miniskirts/dresses), but I told myself I had to give them a chance in order to …

Isabel Marant Pepal Pants

Lace Up

It’s no secret that Isabel Marant is an absolute fashion genius, and my love (more like obsession) for her only continues to grow as the seasons pass. I’m constantly scouring the web for good deals, and I was lucky enough to nab a pair of her pants that I’d been eying during Net-A-Porter’s yearly sale! Imagine my excitement when I saw them for nearly half off, in my size, and 1 left. Woo! The Pepal pants are so ridiculously comfortable, and I love – what seems to be a signature of hers – the drop crotch style. I was also able to get my hands on the Raf lace top – in white. I’d seen it previously on LaGarconne and ShopMrsH in black only, so I was pleasantly surprised to see the white on Espejto…and for a considerably lower price. Brilliant! I’d been looking for a good lace top (that didn’t project cheapness) for quite some time now, and this was it. I went with a medium for a more oversized look, and I absolutely …
