Although its officially spring..this Cali gloom has gotten me all twisted in how I should dress. Not quite ready to spring into spring with all my pattern play and bold colors. Seriously when all else fails just wear ALL black and you will instantly look chic especially in leather (or pleather) pants but i’ve been doin this all winter long (my go to look!) so I added a pop of color with a oversized boxy red coat. A pop of color is an instant “pick me upper’ piece from a gloomy day. and my absolute fave is my gold metal plated choker. It reminds me of those crazy tribal days when women would wear metal plates to elongate their necks (I guess in some countries Beauty is really pain!). Crazy how an ancient beauty practice is now considered a huge fashion accessory. Strange how the world works but hey..history will always repeat itself and yes fashion will always repeat itself for better or for worse. mmm…Have a sassy weekend my darlin’s
As you can tell im a wonderful photographer espeicially when it comes to self portraits! ha! Well I just wanted you to see the detail on this Junya Watanabe (Comme Des Gracones) jacket. It’s probably one of my faves…sheer draping sleeves with a nice boxy tailored body…PURRRR-FECTION! This LA weather is such a tease …the other day it was in the 80s and i was happily skippin away in my romper…..but now its been POURING all week long! When the weather is colder I tend to dress darker, sleeker, and a bit of grunge & rock n roll. So due to the rain..I am wearing a leopard sheer blouse by Equipment, Junya Watanabe jacket, and H&M pleather leggings. and i cut off my face because I hate wearing make up in the rain. But I might as well put a bag over my face in honor of Junya Watanabe and his recent runway show……..Yes I love the dramatic and drapiness of Junya’s collection but c’mon no need to hire a pretty model for this show..nor do we need a hair or make up team for this one. I guess what I’m tryin to say is When All Else Fails Wear Black And Put A Bag Over It. (Im just joking..dont quote me on that!)
Yes another day another campaign..I recently got to style BesoBeso’s 2nd campaign and it was brilliant! Color poppin and hip shakin was the name of the game. Not only did I style the campaign but I got to style the owner Jacqueline Brown and actress Tiffany Thornton (from Disney) …Dressed Jackie in Diane Von Furstenberg & Rag&Bone….Styled Tiffany in the one and only Topshop and of course tons and tons of Beso Beso Jewels.
So as you guys know Michelle Phan and I created a tutorial on how to usefully use your scarf in 9 different ways. Additionally we are helping raise $$$ for Japan…the scarf we used is by James Jean, and if you would like to purchase one 100% of the proceeds go to the Japanese Red Cross. All the colored ones are sold out but the black&White ones are still available!Anyways..after reading a lot of the comments from viewers most people did not understand how the “Turban” look could be fashionable. Well if you havnt read my last entry on the popularity on turbans here..here’s another one for you! Mary Kate, Beyonce, Rachel Zoe, Sarah Jessica Parker, Victoria Beckham, Kardashians, and Eva Mendes to name a few that have been rocking this look for a while now. Not only did recent designers from Prada, Chris Benz, Yigal Azrouel, Rag & Bone use this trend from their past collection..But this trend goes all the way back into the black & white classics from the 1930′s and 40′s! So whether you use your turban to wrap your hair, culturally, or simply as a fashion statement piece..Rock that Turban..you will be Headturnin’ With That Turban…for sure.
Although this Burberry trench is a MUST HAVE…Some of us dont have the luxury in spending $2995 for an ahhhhhhhhh-mazing spiked Burberry trenchcoat. So why not DIY? I mean c’mon Fake It Til You Make It. (Via WhoWhatWear)
