DIY Halloween X Asos

Happy Thursday Folks!

Can you believe how fast October has gone by?? Earlier this month I was contacted by ASOS to do a collaboration for a DIY Halloween costume. I couldn't have been more ecstatic!! I am always lusting after everything on their site and pounced at the opportunity!  In case you're unfamiliar, ASOS is the UK's largest independent online fashion and beauty retailer and offers over 60,000 branded and own label products across womenswear and menswear. So I browsed through their Halloween items and accessories and fell in love with this Moon Hair Crown. It's not exactly spooky but I was gifted these stunning velvet pants by Gypsy Stardust from {E}nter and thought it would look incredible together as a kind of bohemian witch costume.

I don't know about you but I never go as a witch for Halloween because those pointy hats are irritatingly inconvenient, am I right? I'm really excited with how it turned out! I think there's an interesting story being told with the photography (done by the incredible Patrick Ortiz)! This has been my favorite shoot so far, I love how creative I was able to be and working with such an influential brand like ASOS and someone as talented as Patrick has made me more eager for future projects!

Thank you so much ASOS for the beautiful crown and the opportunity! Please please please do yourself a favor and check out their site as well as their DIY Halloween page!

I hope you all have an amazing and festive weekend!

Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend

Hey Hey!!

Happy Friday lovelies! And can you believe how fast October is flying by?? I feel like I haven't even had time to do any festive Halloween things yet!

Recently I was contacted by Nira of {E}NTER located in Beverly Hills to do a collaboration! {E}NTER is a one-stop boutique that carries an eclectic collection of unique pieces from up-and-coming designers from all over the world! I was welcomed with open arms by Nira, who is an absolute sweetheart and amazing business woman, and allowed to browse through the store and pick out anything I wanted to try on and take home to style!! I obviously had a huge handful of things and ended up taking home three amazing outfits. This is one of the pieces I chose...a gorgeous Radiant Orchid colored dress from an Australian designer with this diamond cut out in the front. I never really wear anything so bright or purple but I couldn't resist trying it on and falling in love with it! I especially love the cut out design because, as a small chested woman, it gives the illusion that I have a little more going on up top haha and I love how it hugs the rest of my body. This is one of those pieces that I put on and automatically feel super confident. Thank you so much Nira, I can't wait to style the other pieces and I am eternally grateful for you making me feel like a princess whenever I walked into your boutique!!

The photography is by my coworker Patrick Ortiz! I looooove how they turned out. He's also new to LA so any other bloggers looking for a photographer should definitely check out his work! You can look at the rest of his photography on his website and tumblr! I'm really looking forward to future shoots with him!

Thank you for checking in and I hope you all have the best weekend!

Aqua Bus

Hey there!

I hope everybody is enjoying their weekend so far! I have to head to work soon but I wanted to make a quick post before I do. I started working at Salt & Straw last month. We're an ice cream shop that originated in Portland, OR and just opened a shop in LA. It's been amazing so far, it's located in Larchmont Village (such a cute neighborhood!) and I've met a lot of really wonderful people so far (including Kristina Bazan from Kayture)! All of our ice cream is made from local ingredients and made by hand. If you're in the neighborhood you should definitely stop by, I recommend trying the Sea Salt with Caramel Ribbons, Stumptown Coffee with Compartes Love Nuts, and the Black Olive Brittle with Goat Cheese (we give unlimited samples!!).

These photos are from early last month with my best friend Lin was still visiting me in LA. We walked outside of my apartment one day and this giant aquamarine colored bus was just hanging out right in front of the sidewalk. I have no idea what it is...or what that hashtag means. But I loved the bohemian vibe it had and we decided to take some outfit photos in front of it. It was so hot when she visited (it's finally sort of cooling off here in Los Angeles, only kinda though) and I decided to wear a really light maxi skirt from Brandy Melville, of course and this simple black crop top. I'm still living in this outfit...I have to say I can't wait for light jackets and boot weather!

I have a lot of exciting blog related things coming soon this month that I'm very jazzed to share with you guys! Keep an eye out :)

As always, thank you for stopping by!

Others Follow Fall 2014

Hi there!

Holla Holla it's Friday!! Happy weekend to all of you! Just wanted to do a quick post on the Others Follow Clothing Instagram takeover I did a few weeks ago. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to explore Los Angeles and take some snaps of my adventures and post it on their IG for the weekend!

They sent me this amazing Walker sweater in the color "pebble" and it's so perfect for transitioning into fall from summer. Although you can't see it in these pictures because I decided to tuck it in to shorts, my favorite part about the sweater is the slit in the back....I think it's a really cute/subtle detail to something casual. I'm obsessed with their entire Fall/Holiday collection, they have a fantastic balance of knits, long sleeved tops, dresses, and funky jackets!

You can checkout Others Follow's Fall 2014 lookbook here!

Enjoy your weekend fellow fashionistas! And as always, thank you so much for checking in!

Last Day of Summer

 Happy Monday!!

It's nearly the Autumnal Equinox! I can't believe it's almost that time again (mostly because there has been a heatwave in LA) but Fall is my favorite time of year! Although it will be totally different for me this year, living in SoCal. I'm still going to indulge in pumpkin flavored everything and listen to my Fall playlists (lots of Simon & Garfunkel) and maybe invest in one of those weird Yankee Candles that smell like dead leaves. Yet, part of me is really excited that Summer doesn't feel like it's ending, Yesterday I went jet skiing and I can't stop eating ice cream, and every time I walk down the street I feel like I'm melting. It's hard to believe the seasons are changing!

These photos were taken back in early August by the lovely Luke  who shot the incredible images in my Into the Swing of Things post. I love shooting with Luke, it's so much fun...he always has really beautiful ideas, and he works fast! We went to the Santa Monica Pier at sunset and I decided to wear something that would work for daytime but could also be warm enough for those cooler beach nights. These Brandy Melville Alexah Pants are the most comfortable pants I've ever worn, and I'm absolutely obsessed with the high-waist/wide-leg/all over rose print! To keep cooler during the day I decided to wear this black bralette from Urban Outfitters and threw on this denim shirt from H&M for when the sun disappeared.

I hope you're all enjoying your last day of Summer! Check out Luke's photography here! And if you love his images, like his Facebook page.

Thanks again for stopping by!

Feeling Pink

Hey there!

This past week my best friend in the entire world came to visit me in LA. She's back in NYC now and I already miss the hell out of her! But I'm happy she was able to stay for as long as she did and we were able to do some really fun things and explore Los Angeles together. There's really nothing like having your best friend's like home away from home. We decided to hit up Melrose Ave to do some browsing one day and I couldn't resist taking pictures in front of Paul Smiths vibrant pink wall.

LA has been SO unbearably hot and humid lately so I decided to wear this comfortable and breezy outfit. My top is from Brandy Melville (like I've mentioned in my last post, I cannot get enough of their clothes). It's long sleeves but incredibly light...the perfect knit for summer and piece for transitioning into fall. Finished off off this monochrome look with these crochet shorts I bought a few years back at Buffalo Exchange

I hope you're all having an amazing start to your week! Thank you for stopping by!
