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 Salome Shorts

Pumped Up Kicks

New season, new sneakers! Isabel Marant came out with quite a few versions and colors of her famous Bekett and Betty/Bobby sneakers this season, including the Balesi, Bayley, Wila, Brian, and Baya. Cute Converse-like stars, perforated leather, and sweet piping galore! As tempting as they all were, I decided to stick with the plain solid Beketts in Beige since I knew I’d get more wear out of these compared to the other styles. Result: happy! I also decided to swap the blue Salome shorts (skort) I mentioned in the previous post with red. I instantly fell in love with them 10x more when I saw them at forwardforward. According to my Chinese “ba gua”, red is my lucky color this year (this is me justifying my inclination towards anything red lately).

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 …

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

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 …
