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.
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!

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!
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!
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.
I know that sweats aren’t necessarily meant to be worn outside, let alone with heels, but today I broke the rules. I won’t lie, I felt pretty liberated as this style is so out of my comfort zone. I was lucky enough to snag these amazing heels from Shoedazzle which shockingly worked perfectly with this look.
I’m sorry I fell off the blogosphere but with summer ending, my final semester of graduate school beginning and starting my traineeship and seeing clients, blogging has taken a back seat. But today, I felt inspired thanks to Shoedazzle sending me these gorgeous oxblood pumps with embellished details.
The weather here in Los Angeles is still sunny and bright but I am feeling the fall color palette already, hence my wine based outfit. I apologize for the not so create images, but I didn’t have time to scour a location and thankfully my mother was a doll today taking my pictures.
I am such a sucker for high-waisted shorts and pumps together. I think it just adds a little bit of edge to such a chic sheek combo. Naturally, a pop of color has been a staple for me lately and these pink shorts have been one of my favorite pieces in my wardrobe for the past few months. I was happy to finally snap a quick pick on my iphone wearing them, so i apologize for the very below average pictures!
Today’s outfit was inspired by the seventies with a little rock n’ roll. I love to mix up bohemian prints with leather and edgy details which is why the booties I’m wearing worked perfectly for this look. I’ve never really found a pair of black booties that I had to have, but these Shoedazzle ones just shouted at me. This blazer’s print truly inspires me so much, it has a nice bohemian feel but also a unique ethnic feel which is why I love it so much.
I tried something a little different today: palazzo pants. Normally I always feel like a clown when I wear them, but something about the print of these intrigued me. I figured, why not. I paired the pants with a turtleneck crop top because I feel it added a little bit of a vintage feel.
