Lately i’ve been finding myself wearing the same accessories and changing up the outfits. These days you will never see me without my black leather brim hat, House of Harlow sunglasses, Beso beso jewelry, Michael kors watch and of course my engagement ring. Speaking of my engagement ring i’ve been finding comfort in wearing All White lately. possibly my subcautious is telling me I need to start planning this wedding of mine! *sighhhhh if only I had more hours in the day. I definitely can use some advice on wedding planning right about now….or someone just really needs to kick me from behind to get me going!
(Dress- Zara, Blouse- Equipment, Hat- Urban Outfitters, Sunglasses- House of Harlow, Jewelry- Beso Beso, Watch- Michael Kors)
There are a few things in a woman’s closet that stand the test of time…and a LWB (little white blouse) is one of those things. I cannot tell you how many times I have put this LWB in rotation..but it’s seemingly perfect for any given occasion. In order for any woman to build a great wardrobe they must start off with the appropriate basics and then build off from there. I paired mine with some bold statement pieces…I’ve had a long love affair with costume jewelry/ bold statement pieces for as long as I know (probably watching my grandma adorn herself with jewels when I was young), and i’ve been quite smitten by anything animal print.
It’s only Tuesday but it’s been a beautiful whirlwind with so many new lovely projects- Working with Victorias Secret on Thursday, prepping to style for 4 new campaigns clients, and filming new tutorials with Michelle Phan for your viewing pleasure!
But in all the while I have been receiving the most utterly charming and impossibly thoughtful messages, comments, & tweets from all of you …and its been quite delightful! Although I may not respond to each comment/message/tweet…know that I read each & every one of them and am utterly grateful for each and every one of you. It’s been a Heartfelt week….thank you!
Im sure some of you can relate but lately with those Oh So Comfy leggings back into style..i have put my jeans on the back burner.I mean c’mon nothing beats an oversized shirt with a pair of stretchy leggings, right?…… ummmm WRONG! I’m here to tell you its time to kiss your lovely leggings so-long & goodbye (le sigh). and WHY HELLLLLLLO jeans and may I add with tons of stretch? Michelle Phan and I recently collaborated with Hautelook to show you gals how versatile jeans can be. A pair of good fit jeans can do wonders to your wardrobe, your ‘tude (attitude), legs, and buttocks!
In my everyday wardrobe I always try to mix casual & dressier pieces together to create a well balanced outfit…and Im ALLL ABOUT mixing highs & lows together.
Alot of you gals have been asking for the breakdown of my outfits from our recent Denim Video. So here they are!
1.LUNCH DATE: Blouse- Topshop, Belt- Vintage, Clutch- ASOS (michelle’s), Bracelet- BCBG, Jeans- Seven Jeans (Hautelook), Shoes- Michael Kors

Here are some screengrabs of my 2 favorite outfits from the video. As you can tell I am absolutely obsessed with belting things. Trust me I can ALWAYS find a way to belt something. I love to keep my outfits minimalistic, simple, & clean with tons of accessories and a pop of color!
Would love to see how you girls dress up your denim! Leave me a comment or a picture on my FB page of how YOU dress up your deim.
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!)

Reminder: It’s daylight savings this weekend! YAY! that means longer sunny days to come! (in my head this translates as more time to play in my short shorts)
One of my favorite things to wear during the spring is high waisted short shorts only because they elongate my already long legs! (take note!!) My staple this spring is a plain top with bright or bold patterned print bottoms! Lets Talk about Spring Must haves… go invest in a slinky white blouse that you can dress up or dress down ( im wearing an Equipment blouse here..my fave!). Also invest in some fun colored pants or printed pants for this spring such as these ahhhhh-dorable polka dot pants from ASOS.
Flaunt your best asset this spring! It’s allll about balance darlins’. When showing off major leg cover up them twins up north…and when flaunting your baby twins make sure you are covered up down below! You dont want to show off all your goodies at once..too much of something aint a good thing ladies!
