Since it’s homecoming season..I’ve been getting alot of requests on how to look chic at a football game! I decided to dedicate this tutorial on How To Take your Sports Gear Beyond Sports Practice! Whether you love playing sports, watching sports, or maybe you hate sports but you accompany your bf to a sports game just to be a good girlfriend (lol..you know who you are!). Well take some time to look cute…it’ll make watching sports that much more exciting!!

Also I hope you enjoy my random facts & embarrassing stories at the end of it all :)

Random Snippets

posted by on 2011.10.14, under Lovely Obsessions


The Glitter Guide came over  the other week to capture some  Random Snippets of my life-

1. My passed down Hermes -love pieces that have had a history // 2. Im an avid sunglass collector. I’ve had lots of luck when it comes to finding designer vintage goods. My favorite find so far are these vintage Diors’ circa 1960s. // 3. Mixing & matching pieces from Givenchy, Free People, Michael Kors, Beso Beso, and another vintage find (on my right). // 4. Stacks of books to keep me inspired & a bouquet of fresh hydrangeas to freshen up the house. // 5. I love jewelry but I also love things that organizes my pieces! //6. The new Gucci Black Strappys..Welcome home babes. // 7. My favorite part of the morning- adorning myself.

What are some of your most coveted obsessions?

Points & Chains

posted by on 2011.10.12, under Outfit Of The Day

It’s been a while since i’ve taken my pointy shoes out for a stroll! After the past couple of seasons  of round toes & Chunky heels ..the sleek & Pointys are back! Like all things in life, wether we like it or not, things will always come back in full circle! Although I do not believe in hoarding onto things, but if there is a certain item that you absolutely love…. don’t throw it out just because it’s “outdated.” Instead of trashing it recycle & reuse aka keep it in storage! Also obssessing over layering thick chains on top of one another although its a bit reminiscent of Mr.T and his gold chains!

Ladylike Silhouette

posted by on 2011.10.10, under Outfit Of The Day

I’ve had a longstanding love affair with 50′s style silhouettes- cinched in waist, full skirt, accentuating the hourglass figure! Although this dress looks vintage it’s not!  I actually found it tucked in on the bottom shelf of the Anthropologie sales rack…in my size!

It seems so far yet so close…. spent the weekend traipsing around town planning the wedding.We finally got the venue & date locked down which allows me to mark off 1 out of a thousand things to do on my checklist! I guess we all have to start somewhere! My goal this week is to figure out the colors, flowers, and linens! If you guys know of any good wedding blogs or inspiration please send them over my way..i could definitely use all the help!

Today i’ll be on set styling the YMI jeans spring/summer 2012 campaign as well as styling Michelle Phan on a special little project we are working on!

Happy Monday and  hope your week is filled with joy & glamour!

Dance In The Rain

posted by on 2011.10.07, under Outfit Of The Day

The rain this past week was suprisingly refreshing and brought some life to my wardrobe! I was finally able to mix up my spring neutrals with my winter leathers! I’m excited that I am now finally able to bring my boots and coats out from storage and really put them to use! It’s my favorite time of year…that awkward “in between” season. It’s not too hot & not too cold which means I can Juxtapose lights against darks, sheer chiffon against leather,  and shorts paired with coats!

This touched, moved, & motivated my soul yesterday while watching Steve Jobs’ commencement speech at Stanford- “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.”

So 3 things- Do what you love to do, Don’t settle, and Dance In The Rain (with your fave pair of boots!)

Rotate & Repeat

posted by on 2011.10.04, under Outfit Of The Day

A couple weeks back The Glitter Guide invaded my humble little abode and I shared with them some of my fave pieces, obsessions, and tips! You can check out the feature here!

Im sure some of you guys have seen these pieces in previous outfits but theres absolutely nothing wrong with wearing something twice and mixing it up a bit!

Here are my 3 pieces i find myself continuously mixing & matching

1. My Giraffe print 3.1 Phillip Lim Coat- every girl ought to have something animal print in the fall/winter!

2. Anthropologies statement necklace- Another go to item of mine when I need to spice up my look!

3. Nude & Sparkly Jimmy Choos- Nude heels are a must (they go with everything) & a little bit of bling never hurts!

Do you guys have any pieces that you continuously rotate & repeat?

Dreams Of Plaid & Dots

posted by on 2011.10.03, under Outfit Of The Day

After a week long vacation i’m finally ready to get back to work! After 7 days of wearing flowy summer whites and breezy one pieces it surely is nice to be able to wear my favorite silk blouse, tweed bottoms, and tall leather boots. I’m such a homebody at heart that its so hard to keep me away from LA for too long.

I can already tell..it’s going to be an  intensely busy week with lots of catching up to do! I announced it on my Twitter & Facebook last week, but I recently have taken on the position as the fashion director of GENLUX magazine ( a luxury LA based magazine). As some of you guys know Ive been working as a freelance stylist for the past 3 years, and for a prestigious magazine to recognize my hard work, passion, & talent and to bring me on as their Style & Fashion director is truly an honor. I also have some exciting projects brewing in the mix of things that I cannot reveal quite yet!

Mondays are when dreams come to life…a new week, a new day, a new start to strive for what you love! “If you dont have some time to dream, then you never have a vision” HAPPY MONDAY!!
