This was my first time filming outdoors when it was raining but I find it quite peaceful. Will be filming more tutorials this week! Let me know what you would love to see!


Backstage With The Angels

{Blouse, vest, pants, & shoes all from Zara}

The past couple of days were spent in a dream at The Dream Downtown {hotel}. It’s always nice to be greeted by fresh flowers  + pampered with gifts on your arrival. Spent some time with my bestie who came to stay with me at my hotel for the week… having a familiar face around makes traveling much easier when traveling alone! The original plan was to bundle myself up in layers and layers of cashmere and wool, but the weather in NY {surprisingly} was crisp & warm!

Spent the rest of the week backstage with the angels…Watching the legendary Tom Pecheux work his magic on the angels as they got ready for the annual {& much anticipated} Victoria’s Secret fashion show! Although the show doesn’t air until November 29th all I can say is get ready for their best show yet! Of course the angels looked amazing but it was the performances that really got me going- thank you Kanye, Jay-z, Maroon5, and Nicki Minaj!

What an honor to be invited to this amazing event, thank you Victoria’s Secret for such a memorable week!



Like A Dream

Perhaps the most important detail of a dress {in my opinion} is the drapery. At a first glance this ALC dress seems oh so basic but I always love a simple piece with an unexpected twist in the back.

Among all the many exciting things to look forward to in the next couple of days here in New York I look forward in the candlelight dinners and soirees here at our swanky hotel at The Dream Downtown. It truly is like A Dream! Today I’m starting my day off really early…. meeting the angels backstage for hair & makeup then the creative artists behind the show + Tom Pecheux. Closing off the evening by attending the Victoria’s Secret fashion show + afterparty. I have a feeling that today will be an insanely glamorous & glittery day!

Have a glamorous day loves!

A little behind the scenes from last week’s shoot with GENLUX magazine! Quite ecstatic about not only being able to style this editorial, but also being The Face Of/ Model for this story! Got to style myself in some of my favorite pieces from Balenciaga, Isabel Marant, Preen, Givenchy, Alexander Mcqueen, etc. (Courtesy of my favorite Boutique in Los Angeles- Satine Boutique). I decided to work around staples and wardrobe essentials that all women need in their closet for this winter! Simply cant wait for the holiday issue to hit stands in December so I can share with you guys the full story!

I’ll probably be on a plane to NY by the time you guys are reading this entry!! En route to the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show! I’ll be seeing you guys on tomorrow’s entry in full glitz & glamour!!

Hope you have a glamorous day!



Last Golden Rays

And a heartfelt weekend it was..Spent the beautiful Saturday afternoon meeting viewers & readers at the DSW store in orange county! It was amazing to see the amount of people {click here to see} that came out not only to support us but also to  donate their gently worn shoes for Soles4Souls. We raised hundreds & hundreds of shoes and I’m happy to say that they are now on their way to someone who is really in need of them!

Wore this billowy sheer dress and drenched myself in the last golden rays of the season. And so this weekend was spent frolicking  in the golden sunlight +  deep conversation over  a candlelight dinner.

Today will be one of those days with meetings & appointments, and afterwards, a million errands to run before I catch my flight to New York  to attend the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show + a very special project Im working on :)

Hope your week is filled with love & laughter

A New Discovery + Coming Together

posted by on 2011.11.04, under Outfit Of The Day

As previously talked about I am the queen when it comes to repeating, rotating, & remixxxxxing and i’m sure you all have seen this red blouse previously on this post here and here . Discovering unexpected new combos between old pieces is just as exciting as purchasing new pieces! I was quite excited to head out to my meeting today as I  discovered this new combination of polka dots +bold stripes + an accent of leopard.

{Zara Blouse, Alexander Wang Vest , F21 Skirt, Gifted Courtney Kaye Bracelet, Zara shoes, Banana Republic Ring, Banana Republic Belt, ASOS Scarf,  Hermes Birkin purse, Kenneth Cole Pin}

I believe that empowerment & education is vital to young people! That is why I have partnered up with MTV Staying Alive Foundation and Kenneth Cole to commemorste the discovery of the AIDS virus 30 years ago and to ignite a new wave of awareness about the AIDS pandemic with the next generation. Here Im wearing the Kenneth Cole’s reinterpreted version of the AIDS ribbon- the double loop syblizes the Coming Together of individuals and the re-doubling of efforts in the fight against HIV & AIDS. This pin will be available  at Kenneth Cole stores, Kennethcole.com, and Bloomingdales- 100% of the profits being donated to AWEARNESS, the Kenneth Cole Foundation.

Rare Gems

posted by on 2011.11.02, under Outfit Of The Day

<Jacket- Zara, Blouse- H&M, Trousers- Zara, Shoes- Penelope & Coco, Clutch- Zara,  All Jewelry- Vintage>


The other day I was  searching for some vintage buttons to jazz up a plain old blazer but got sidetracked by this gorgeous vintage bracelet + earring set. Usually when I find vintage pieces I end up getting them tailored or fixed but the quality, the setting, and even the fine details on this pair was perfect! Rare Gems are hard to find!

Its been another crazy week running around town from meetings to fittings to luncheons, and to look chic & comfy has never been so easy in my Penelope & Cocos. Never sacrifice beauty for comfort especially when you can have both!

Hope you’re having a lovely week thus far!
