Istanbul Casual

This is one outfit I wore when I was in Istanbul. While over there I went to the Kapali Carsi (Grand Bazaar) and purchased a lot of neat goodies. In this outfit post, I am wearing a jade green python clutch and a leather jacket I bought from there. The prices are so amazing, the clutch, which you could find on SALE for $1,000+ cost about $200. The lambskin leather jacket with gold hardware cost me $400. All genuine leather and python. My best friend and I went bananas at the prices, she bought about six clutches in an array of colors. I seriously wish I had more time to go explore more and more and buy a bunch of other things!

Happy 2014! My trip to Istanbul was amazing and before I make some posts about it, I’m sharing a quick outfit post. I arrived back to LA on the 9th and have been in majorly jet-lagged sleeping at 9 pm almost every night! Of course, I couldn’t idle for long as I was back to work immediately!

This was Saturday’s work outfit!

Today’s my last day in LA, I leave for a few hours to head on over to Istanbul. I am so excited to see family, my friends and my best friend who is flying in from Saudi. I am also looking forward to blogging my travels and doing some fun outfit posts while there. You can follow me on Instagram (@LeFashnMonster) for daily pictures of places I’m visiting, what I’m wearing and other goodies!

Thanks Tori B for the photos!

Thighed-Up.

Okay, I made a pun-ny title (oops, I did it again!). Today’s post was inspired by the thigh-high trend. I’ve been struggling to find a way to incorporate the trend into my wardrobe so I was happy I finally put together an outfit I love! I know it’s a little school-girl but what can I say…

Merry Christmas to all of you! I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas :)

I leave to Turkey on Thursday and can’t wait to do some posts from there!

One of my favorite times to shoot for the blog is during the “golden hour”. The light is so beautiful and it makes everything shine. I don’t know what it is, but the those 20-25 minutes just make me feel at peace. It makes me feel whole, beautiful and all I want to do is smile.

Today’s look is rather exotic. I wanted to try something somewhat 80’s but still make it chic and slightly modern. I paired some neoprene high-waist pants with a velvet crop top and a silk hot pink blazer. My friend Tori (check out her faboosh blog) and I decided to play with the sunlight and the rays to capture some images. I hope you enjoy the images as I enjoyed shooting them.

Black Holiday

Last night I went to a holiday party for the old boutique I used to work at and I couldn’t find a top I liked in my closet, so…I went to my mom’s closet and found this amazing sheer grommet detailed top. Naturally, it was black (I promise, some more colorful posts are coming). I loved the new leggings I got too, they have a fun motorcycle appeal to them but most of all, I just loved a reason to get dressed up. I apologize for the lack of scenery in my posts, I’ve been taking pictures quickly and haven’t had time to plan anything out, but I’m working on it :). Happy Saturday!

Summer in Winter

I know some of you may be a little envious right now, but the weather here is beyond perfect! I had to put some color on to keep day shining bright. I apologize for the lack of photos, but it was a very quick “outfit of the day” post I created on Instagram (follow me @LeFashnMonster) and I wanted to share it on the blog as well.

Noir Nights

Happy Wednesday!

Today’s post is probably one of my favorites. I am obsessed with all black but currently loving the draped front top paired with a skinny pant for a night on the town. With temperatures relatively cool here in L.A this is a great look that is comfortable, warm but still full of sex appeal. I love showing a little skin but I always keep it coy…nobody deserves to see all the goods at the same time!

Winter Shorts

The weather in LA keeps toying my mind- and wardrobe. It’s warm during the day and freezing at night, or freezing all day and night and this weekend and Monday it’s going back up the 80’s. I guess I shouldn’t complain but ever since starting up the blog again I’ve been dying to some Fall/Winter looks! I guess finish school took that away from me…which I’m okay with!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend! Xo

Holiday Pink

A quick update…I am officially done with graduate school! I just recieved my Masters in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage & Family Therapy. 2 years of brutal hard work, life changing experiences and a lot of self-exploration but I did it! The past two months have been brutal with finals, papers and just delving deep into my practicum where I see clients and fashion was the last thing on my mind. But now that it’s done and I just see client’s, I can focus on blogging again!

Today’s post is all pink and pretty! I fell in love this shirt the minute I saw it, and I’m usually an ALL BLACK kind of girl, so this was a step up for me.
