Rag & Bone Skinny in Clay

Friday Five

1. Rag & Bone Skinny Jeans in Clay I’m pretty sure I heard Etta James’ “At Last” when I saw these. :P I absolutely love the brick red and it’s perfect for the holidays. Find it here! * 2. Swarovski Erika China Pendant Birthday present from mama! Isn’t she cute?! Swarovski themed their Eliot/Erika special edition collection “Around the World” this time. Available at Swarovski.

A friend from my jewelry class casted these mini pine cones and made them into earrings…and I had to have them. Just in time for the holiday season! Check out her other work here. 4.

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. Oxley Pumps Available at ShopBop in black and wine * Available at Zappos in black, wine, and navy * *YAY affiliate links!

Rachel Roy Lyannah

Put A Cap On It

Gold has found it’s way onto my feet. A flash of shiny caught my eye during my usual online perusing last week, and when I saw 1 more available in my size, I pounced. I couldn’t be happier with my decision – these shoes are gorgeous! The contrast of hard (metal) and soft (cow hair) gives it such an interesting texture and I love that it’s so different from the usual plain leather. These shoes are my first Rachel Roy purchase, and I will positively be back for more! Cap-toe shoes seem to be a must this season, but I can definitely see them lasting as a classic staple.     A few alternatives & where to get them: 1. Sam Edelman Aster Cap Toe Flats 2. Sigerson Morrison Walda Cap Toe Ballet Flats 3. Rag & Bone Maya Ballet Flats 4. Rachel Roy Lyannah Cap Smoking Flats 5. alice + olivia Donnie Haircalf Booties 6. Nicholas Amore Cap Toe Pumps  

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 

Isabel Marant Bazil

At Last…Isabel Marant Bazil Sneakers

There really are no words to explain how absolutely frustrating it was to try and hunt down a pair of Isabel Marant Bekket sneakers (especially black) for the past few seasons/years. I either couldn’t find them, missed them, or couldn’t afford them. I was determined to get my hands on them this time around, and with the help of wonderful Mandi (findmeamuse), I did! I passed my name around to boutiques around the world like hotcakes, and it was done. I don’t know which was harder, tracking them down or waiting months for them to finally arrive! They are beautiful. Gorgeous. >Insert whatever adjective relating to amaziness here<. I was a little skeptical of the python print at first, but the execution is second to none. It’s subtle, but obvious enough to add just a little bit of texture. I’m waiting on 2 other colors, since I couldn’t make up my mind, but the black Bazil is doing an excellent job of convincing me. For anyone who’s confused by the sizing, these sneakers are in …

Fourth of July

Red, White, Blues In The Skies

  Summer’s in the air, baby heaven’s in your eyes. I’m your national anthem.  I thought it’d be fun to make a set in honor of Independence Day & the 2012 Olympics, so here it is! How perfect are the Electric Blue Isabel Marant Bekkets and red leather pants?!   Red, White, Blues in the Skies by niniloves T by Alexander Wang pocket t shirt, $93 / Splendid long sleeve top, $94 / Isabel Marant scoop neck vest, $130 / Isabel Marant red cropped pants, $1,805 / Isabel Marant sneaker, $535 / Y-3 baseball hat / Madewell retro sunglasses / Givenchy Medium Pepe Pandora Messenger

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 …
