I love the holidays, and dressing for them can be a challenge. One of my favorite trends this holiday season is wearing a trench as a dress. This kind of look could be pulled off for all occasions, however, depending on the style and length, it could look too sexy or frumpy–so be sure to choose a trench coat that has a light fabric. This one from DailyLook is amazing (get it here). It’s lightweight and has a very cool sheen to it, it looks metallic (and it’s under $80). I added a pair of super fun stone earrings and a just to really make it festive and “bling-bling” (I can’t believe I just said that), I wore these adorable and comfortable heels from Shoedazzle. To top it all off, I created a bold lip with L’OREAL Colour Riche in “British Red”.
I’ll have a lot of holiday looks coming to the blog this month, so stay tuned! I’ll cover sequins, to feathers, to winter whites…
Holiday trends for 2014 are so fun, so please comment below if there is something you would like to see me try out!
I’m totally blasting Christmas music right now…I am 100% in the christmas spirit!
Happy Monday everyone! Today won’t be a personal style post because the past week and half I have been non-stop slaving away working on the final touches for my online store Private Cartel. I started this store six months with my friend and back then it was just an idea. An idea I always wanted to make happen, however, with my Internship and seeing a full load of clients and full-time blogging again, I wasn’t sure I would be able to deliver.
Today, I am proud to say that I have made an idea a reality. I have worked non-stop and full-time with this store with a very minimal budget. All photograph and photo editing was done by my partner and I and we designed the website as well. It took us hours every day to scramble, and right now, it may not be perfect, but it’s something I am so proud of.
Private Cartel caters to both MEN & WOMEN, so there is something for everyone!

Once again, THANK YOU all for your continuous support. I really wouldn’t be where I am without you.
TGIF! Another week has gone and another weekend is among us! I don’t know about you but I can’t even remember what I’ve done all week. It’s been crazy, but I can’t complain. Juggling blogging, my internship as a Marriage & Family Therapist and starting my own business (check out the progress here), the weekend is something I look forward to. Although I still work, I allot time for myself on the weekend to avoid burn out. Burn out is one of the worst things we can to do to ourselves. No matter what, make time for YOU.
Today’s outfit post is back to the basics: total black. The weather (it’s 90 degrees still) is not exactly Fall fashion friendly here in Los Angeles, but thankfully there is air conditioning which allows me to pull of some Fall trends. Today’s trend is the oversized coat. What I love about this coat is not only it’s versatility but the patent sleeves. It gives it an edgy touch yet the cut and length keep is classic.

Last night I invited to the Juicy Couture x Kohl’s event at one of LA’s most unique homes; The Sheats Goldstein Residence. Overlooking the city lights of Los Angeles while sipping white wine, listening to tunes & mingling with some of my other fellow bloggers, I was able to experience the excitement of this pretty epic collaboration. I loved the floral wall embellished with Swarovski crystals & the cool idea of InstaPrint. InstaPrint prints Polaroid-like stickers based off a certain hashtag: #JuicyKohls. You can go on Instagram (follow me @LeFashnMonster) and search the hashtag for more images from the event.
I didn’t take an outfit post because I came straight for work (I’m a Marriage & Family Therapist) & didn’t have time to change.Read more
Okay, it’s not really the new black, but the T.V is show premiering it’s new season this week…and for that, I’m happy! I know it’s been awhile, but it’s been one roller coaster of a month. As much as I love fashion and blogging, the mental health field is where my career and future lies. I have working toward building my name in the mental health community and working through getting my intern number and bulking up on clients to get my 3,000 hours done so I can open my practice within the next two years.
Anyhow, I’ll be posting more often though. I do miss the excitement of dressing up and not wearing suits all day!
I’m not usually one to wear too much color, so going all in on one color was a risk for me! I will admit that I absolutely love this color and this style. Two piece looks I love to wear but sometimes finding pieces that just work well is hard, luckily this set from AMI CLUBWEAR came together and fit like a glove!
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.
