Chains & Stripes

Funny how sometimes things come in full circle…actually is it safe to say that it always does?

Today my assistants and I will be at FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising), the college where I graduated from, styling one of their campaigns! Im sure I will be  reminiscing of those sleepless college nights and freshman 15 days. haha

and I think it’s about time for me to switch up my regular jewelry mix! So I decided to experiment with layering on some of my favorite chains from Kate Spade & Express. Sometimes we all get so caught up with our regular’s always nice to experiment and get re inspired!

The Denim Outfit Breakdowns

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.

The weather was way too beautiful to pass up so we decided to take advantage of the LA sun (before April showers start!) …Talk about knocking 3 birds with one stone. 1. Attempt to tan my pasty white legs 2. Catch up on some magazines (aka get some work done)  3. Get inspired (and so we did!)

Here are some of my Spring MUST HAVES: 1. A Bright bold colored top (currently loving this deep royal blue) 2. Tweed jacket (dress it down like i did here or you can dress it up for work ) 3. Statement necklace 4. loafers (no joke, ive been wearing these leopard print ones everyday since I got them!) 5. & of course the infamous CIRCLE glasses.

Currently in the works of editing videos for my youtube channel and prepping for 5 campaign shoots I am styling up. And the pressure is on…but sometimes you just gotta Kick Up Your Feet & let God do the rest!
