This brown leather jacket is actually my older sisters, I stole it from her, but it will probably be taken back on Friday when she sees it in my closet. Brown leather is by far my favorite, so much better than black, although black is more practical. This one specifically though because of all the detailing, and the sweater like collar. I wish it was warm enough to wear leather jackets. I would never neglect my furs or heavy coats, but I do miss leather. Anyway, I leave for vacation on saturday morning and won’t be posting for two weeks! I want to wish everyone a fantastic holiday and a happy new year!

No better outfit than comfortable jeans and a t-shirt. I wore these jeans to Alexa’s apartment, totally not planning on photographing it, but she asked me to put a comfortable outfit together, and with this fur. Turns out, this is an outfit I’ve worn twice since then. Ripped up jeans will always be in style to me. I folded them at the bottom so that you could see more of my shoe. The most comfortable heels I own. The t-shirt is just one of those worn in Kain three quarter. Sheer though so usually have to wear something over it.

Julia Roitfeld (Editor of French Vogue’s daughter) has great style. I admire her risk taking, and not to mention, she is stunningly beautiful.
I actually really happen to love that haircut,
shoulder length.
I love this black ensemble, need a dress like that!

recession proof swagger

A few years ago on a trip to LA, some friends took me shopping at a spot on Melrose. This spot “Slow” became a staple LA shopping stop whenever I happened ventured to the left coast, and with very good reason. Slow is a little vintage spot filled with amazing finds, all of which are beyond reasonably priced. Lately i’ve been suffering from “a closet full of nothing to wear” syndrome, and decided I needed something new to get me out of my funk. After a ton of online and window shopping I was convinced I was not going to find anything I would both like and be able to afford. Then I remembered Slow. Among the two pairs of boots, sequined top, and two sweaters I bought for under $100. I found a dope floor length sleeveless wrap which was the kind of piece I would never expect to see anywhere except in Whitney Houston’s 1992 film “The Bodyguard.” It was made in India of 100% sheer black silk. It’s covered gold beaded piping that ends in a fringe at the bottom of the garment. Sort of reminiscent of a flapper dress. The neckline has some gold beaded detail as well. It’s beautiful! I’m not sure what the best part of this piece is…. either that there are a hundred different ways to wear it, or that it was $20! Keep your eyes peeled… there are some amazing one of a kind items right under your nose. Don’t over look them! I glanced right past this one, and a friend pointed it out and I couldn’t be happier. I saw it and immediately quoted Rachel Zoe and screamed “I….DIE. THIS IS BA….NANAS” I spent next to nothing and now have an unforgettable item I can wear seven million ways, its like buying twelve outfits in one! take a look…

(Pants: Mugler, Tank top: Phillip Lim)
My mom was going through things in her closet and offered me these pants. At first I wasn’t really sure when or how I could wear them, but after playing around with them they turned out to be a lot cooler than I thought. They’re much more my older sisters style, (I mean, she has the best style,) but I figured maybe I could incorporate some of that into my own. I would wear these pants to a holiday party or a dinner. I wanted to wear it with something light on top so that the detailing of the pants would stand out. This also would look cute with a cropped sweater for the winter. My tank top is Phillip Lim, and is about three years old, but a great purchase. It’s different but easy, and I love the frilly flap on top. I wish we photgraphed the back of the tank top, because the silver buttons that go up the back are a huge part of the shirt. The shorter silver necklace my mother gave it to me, but we try to share it between me and my little sister, and the long silver one my older sister got me for my 21st birthday. It broke though
still looks cool. I know high waisted can be tricky, but these are not tight high waisted and could be flattering on almost anyone.
