LA: Sunny Place for Shady People

I like to think that my style consists of mixing fun, casual wear with Parisian chic.  In today's out of of the day, I try to nail exactly that.  I take inspiration from fashion moguls like Nicole Richie when putting an outfit like this together.  (Also if you haven't already seen Candidly Nicole, do yourself a favor and watch it because it's probably the best thing currently on TV).  

For my day out in the sunniest place for the shadiest people, Los Angeles, I am wearing a City of Angels shirt that is honestly so ragged.. I swear if I didn't wear the blazer I would be asked "are you a crack dealer?"  I think it's important to take the clothes that you have that a little more haggard and pair them with more formal wear so you don't look so much like a washed-out teenager.  

I wear this hole-ridden shirt with a Sandro Paris blazer that makes up for my $12 Urban Outfitters shirt.  On top of this I thought it would be fun to wear a statement necklace.  This one is my favorite, I say I 'made it' but I really just bought the pieces and assembled them together.  Wearing statement necklaces can make an outfit so much more fun.  

My shorts are vintage Wranger, you can pick up a pair at any vintage store or Urban Outfitters, where they sell the Urban Renewal line, mostly of Levi's and Wrangler.  To add more spunk to my outfit I chose to wear my bright teal Prada heels.  They're high, but very worth it in the sense that it makes me look skinnier and for the visual illusion of having longer legs.  Other than that, my feet suffer.  If you're not into wearing heels, you can pair and outfit like this with any athletic shoe, Vans, Superga, Adidas, or Nikes.  My pick would be my Nike Roshe.

SoulCycle and Raw Juice, Please?

Do you participate in SoulCycle and Raw Juice Cleanses? Yeah, I don't do that either.  BUT, everyone knows the fashion industry is picking up on much fitness wear as a new outlet for chic outfits.  I don't mean the fitness trend as in the classic Los Angeles need for PopPhysique and Pressed Juicery.  But rather the fact that Nike and Adidas are dominating the fashion industry at the moment.  Combing lifestyle wear and pairing them with something a little more fun and formal and simply putting on a pair of cool sneakers is definitely what is trending right now.  

If you didn't already know, I have a shoe problem and the trend for sneakers has heightened my already existing love for sneakers.  Tennis shoes that have become part of the trend is now just the cherry on top.  You can see world-class trend setters like Vanessa of Haute Pursuit and Sophia of Esymai to be rocking tennis shoes.  

I don't work out but I like to wear fitness clothes and pretend I just got out of hot yoga.  Today, I put this trend into my outfit.  A few months back, with the intention of wearing this as a chic outfit rather than a work out shirt, I purchased a Stella McCartney x Adidas collaboration top.  Originally intended to be a work out top, I paired this with a more formal black skirt from Zara.  As a jacket, I wore my Philosophy by Alberta Ferretti white silk bomber jacket.  To top this outfit off, I wore my Adidas Superstar 2.0's which are a definite throwback from the 90's.  So glad these are back in style, I am happy to be rocking these babes.

Erica Pelosini and Louis Leeman Wedding in Capri


Fashion muse and my honest to God idol, Erica Pelosini recently got married in Capri to her love Louis Leeman.  We all know Erica for her contributions to Vogue Nippon and her true love for Balmain, however her fairytale get-away wedding in Capri resembled her style to the next level.  100% custom tailored to her, Mary Katrantzou and Peter Dundas of Pucci took the role of dressing her on her big day.

Moreover, her wedding took place the same weekend as the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda show which was an exclusive event for both D&G's close friends and clientele.  Many of their guest attended both, making the weekend more extravagant than ever.

What catches my eye the most is her top-notch bridesmaids crew.  Erica decided to hold a bridesmaid brunch in which all of her bridesmaids wore from the Spring 2014 RTW collection.  I swear, if I don't wear Mary Katrantzou for my wedding I will murder someone.  My clique better be fashionable enough for this shit, you don't even know #uoeno.  I'm not even laughing because I'm that serious....

On that note, congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Leeman!

Hot Hands

On sunny days like today its important to keep cool in the 90 degree weather in California.  Bring out your light weight skirts and match them with minimalist tops and jewelry.  Today I am wearing a Carven stamp print skirt with a J. Crew tank, Yves Saint Laurent sandals and rings from H&M.
