denim distress

It’s a bubbling 80+ degrees here in Los Angeles, and today I’m breaking out the denim shorts- and shirt! This is a quick post as I have to get back to writing a 30-page case report!

White jeans, white jeans, white jeans…why do I always fear wearing you? Today I decided to take my own “risk” and wear denim. I’m not usually a fan of white denim, but after slipping these shredded babies on, I couldn’t help but feel as though I’ve been missing out! I know they’re just jeans, but seriously, white denim can look chic, even shredded to pieces!

This week has been super hectic but I’m happy to announce that I am currently in the process of applying for my Doctorate (yay, more school!). It’s such an exciting yet intimidating process but I’m totally looking forward to my next academic journey. I will soon be Dr. Le Fashion Monster? Sounds good to me! :)

Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone!

Whatever you are doing today/tonight I hope you spend it with people you love. Although I believe in displaying love on a daily basis, I have to say that sometimes it’s nice seeing all the love during this day. Anyhow, enjoy this day of love! I know I will :)

walk the line

So today’s outfit post is a little Missy Elliot inspired look (well, not really…but look at the image below, it just reminded me of it). Nothing is more me than an all black look, so that’s why this post is simple, but with a fun twist. Normally I don’t wear such funky sweaters but when I saw this in the mall in Istanbul, I couldn’t resist it. I threw on some chains and red lipstick and decided, why not? And voila, this post is made.

will you be my valentine?

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and today’s post is a look dedicated for that special night. As much as I don’t really care for Valentine’s Day (I think showing love and appreciation randomly and often is much more exciting than a day where everyone and their mother gets flowers and chocolate), I still decided to make a post (well, two- one later). Regardless, I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s day! There is never a bad day for love.

This is a quick outfit post and due to the major wind today in Los Angeles, my hair is covering my face in most images. Too bad I couldn’t get the whole “glam hair blowing in the wind” look, but hey- it just wasn’t in the cards for me! Also, the sun kept coming and going so the pictures are a bunch of different colors- sorry!

Anyhow, my amazing little sister and my second mom (two people I cherish so much and will always) gave me a belated birthday present over the weekend during dinner. They know me so well and got me this gorgeous silver and white statement necklace. Naturally, I had to wear it ASAP! A special shout-out to two women who truly are blessing in my life: Gloria & Anahid. They are better than any materialistic gift…they are both, as people, gifts to me.

I am also excited to debut these heels I purchased during Christmas. They appear to be solid silver and black but at night and in the sun they sparkle…a lot! I am madly in love with them and wish I had more opportunities to wear them. I highly recommend them (they also come in gold too, but I found the gold to look a little cheap). You can view them here.

Well how about that Superbowl Sunday, right? Okay, I don’t really have any idea about American football, but it was fun to watch. Last weekend I got to watch the game, eat amazing unhealthy food and see a live band perform. Here’s the best part, the band was Metal Mariachi band! It was amazing. I don’t think I’ve hear such epic music and seen such energy. They were called Metalachi and it was so fun to watch them and listen to them rock the stage at this party I was at.

I don’t wear jerseys of sports paraphernalia so I opted for black…and plaid!

If you were watching, who did you root for? I was rooting for Seahawks for 1 reason: I like their uniform colors better. That’s how you pick a team right? Uniform colors? Aaaaaand I’m done embarrassing self!

Oh, and I’ve been on a Disney high, hence the post title. Don’t judge me- I need to find someone to take me to Disneyland ASAP!

packing a punch

I don’t know what inspired me for this outfit but I’m pretty sure the sunny weather and the fact that I’m ALWAYS in black motivated me to just be bold. I have had the blazer and skirt for awhile and somehow they coordinated perfectly with my necklace. There is no theme to the images, but I was just having a lot of fun wearing this.

Where’s my motorcycle at?

Alright, as much as I love the idea of ridin’ dirty on a Harley, I probably wouldn’t be able to maneuver one. I have rode on a bike, so fun! Today was casual and I really miss being casual. I’m always working so slacks and button up’s have been my uniform. Now that it’s the weekend I can play! I love these motorcycle leggings so much, I am so happy I got a chance to wear them again. I’m a sucker for a loose denim shirt and white tank. It’s so “hipster” but hipsters don’t have big blonde hair, so I can pull this off without feeling too trendy.

My Last Outfit Post…before my Bday!

My birthday is tomorrow and I haven’t even thought about what to do, where to go, or anything! It’s been such a crazy month and I realize, a good movie, a glass of wine, and pajamas might just have to be the plan for my Saturday night! But that’s okay, I get to see some girlfriends for dinner tonight and I’m looking forward to it. Today I decided to wear two of my favorite things: sequins and leather. It may be a bit much, but I couldn’t even tell you how fun it was to wear this out for a day of shopping.

Happy Friday to you all!
