Studded But Treeless

Some of todays inspirations. Walked into the Oscar De La Renta showroom and immediately gravitated towards the coral branch display. If there was one thing I could’ve walked out with, from the store, it would’ve been THAT coral display…..sadly it was NOT for sale, what a shame! But I did find these ahhhhh-mazing coral studs (fyi- I will forever live and die with stud earrings on.) that were reasonably priced. Walked out of Oscar De La Renta Studded But Treeless. For now I shall attempt to paint my trees coral…until Oscar decide’s to give in to my request.

A Striped Muse

Currently obsessed with anything and everything striped…whether horizontal, vertical, or slanted. It’s just downright a classic statement pattern without being too obnoxiously bold. Maybe it has to do with my obsession with long clean lines (ok fine, thats just my OCDness) or maybe it has to do with my childhood love and inspiration…….

A-ha! that must be it. Where’s Waldo… Forever A Striped Muse of mine.

Love,

A Balanced Act

You know those girls that can pin point their style down in 1-2 words? well yes…Im definitely NOT one of those girls. Here’s a brief description of my style..Classic romantic with an edge of rocker chic with a twist of 70′s bohemian glam wrapped around a clean cut, minimalistic, & sophisticated look.  (*breathing*Panthing*) A BALANCED ACT- basically in other words i dont like to look too girly nor too edgy nor too grown up…but a mix of everything in between. In the outfit above I’m wearing a girly ruffled shirt with a boho maxi skirt which made me look a bit TOO little house on the prairie-like….. so I added a leather jacket to harden it up with a pair of combat booties. And Vice Versa…yes we know the military look is in but it aint cool if you look like your about to go to war in your leather & army jacket..so darlins’ soften it up with a soft, romantic, sheer blouse. And this is my secret to getting dressed every morning. I tell myself “Balance baby Balance….”

Eat Mustard, Wear Mustard

I don’t know what it is..maybe its my slight hatred/distaste in how mustard actually tastes but i’ve never been a fan of anything mustard related. Well until The Row, Acne, & Proenza Schouler served me Mustard in a way I’ve never had before. & now I have a slight change of heart..ok fine..a HUGE change of heart…I absolutely LOVE MUSTARD!!! I worked up a combo that i’ve never done… paired up this mustard jacket with this bright blue electric shirt with high waisted polka dot pants! Mustard can be a color that can easily look bland so i wanted to perk it up with a bold statement color underneath! And pair it with some funky pants! So I challenge you to pair up a color combo you’ve never tried before and add some polka dots into your life. Polka dots is another subject but keep in mind Print & dots will  also be HUGE this season. HAPPY MONDAY darlins’
