I Got My Eyes On You
I love the pop of neon colors. The neon green of my headscarf match the silly pink flamingos on my necklace. This croptop is actually something I got last year when I was in Tokyo, Japan but ironically their shop is here! Clumsy Cat! They have some cool stuff, so check them out. The jacket is also from Japan from the cutest little shop in Shibuya. It says “Boys” on the back in ruffles! The sheer skirt is one of my most coveted pieces from American Apparel. Although they still make these skirts, they don’t in this specific color and I was hunting for it forever! Finally luck was on my side one day at the AA flea market and I snatched it (at a deal!) Don’t worry, I’m wearing nude shorts underneathe. I notice people are always trying to figure that out while they see me pass on the streets, haha.
Anyway, I’m feeling kinda crappy today because of a cold of some sort I caught over the weekend. The weather is warming up again SoCal (yay! but also boo cause I love cold weather)

Until next time!
Three Broad Strokes
Even though a bow tie and shorts make me look like a little school boy, I’ve always gotten the impression it was in a good way. Haha. Plus with these lovely pastel colors, some frilly socks , and heels, I think it’s feminine enough. Nothing screams femininity like a pink satin bow… although the boys who can pull of pink satin bows are my favorite kind of boys ;)
Everything from American Apparel <3
The thing about winter in Southern California is that we still have 80 degree days. So yes, I’m donning a sleeveless semi-belly-showing dress. I actually love this dress because it’s seemingly simple but incredibly well-made and has one of those suede-silk textures. I’m not usually this casual looking am I? How do I look in neutrals? =)

The most carefully coordinated outfits always have the sense of “why didn’t I think to do that?” Sometimes with patterns, sometimes with colors, sometimes with textures. I love creating intricate color palettes with my outfits. This outfit seems to first appear as only a combination of dark turquoise with maroon. But if you look deeper you’ll see my the colors you find in my vest, my belt, my headband, and my handmade brooch. All coming together like a harmonious tune.

My outfit is a little trendy, a little preppy, and a little Charlie Chaplin today. Seems like I’m wearing black and white more often nowadays. Back when I was blonde I refused to wear black because it felt like it didn’t complement my hair, haha how silly I was… black matches everything! Perhaps that’s why New Yorkers are obsessed with it. Black is back!!

We had a cold front in LA last week (it actually rained!) and as a consequence I think a cold is going around. Everyone at my office including myself has the sniffles. I think I’m getting worse =(
I have a couple outfits to catch up with so keep posted! This first one is a pretty casual one with some great vintage pieces. I don’t wear vintage nearly enough anymore.

Yearning for the Breeze
Finally the heat wave here in LA is calming down! The shade is actually… cool and sometimes even chilly! Really I’m just counting down the days until fall so I had to throw on an outfit to reflect that. Call it my “rain dance” outfit.

Los Angeles always gets the crazier heat waves during (what I thought was) the beginning of fall. Although the sun is out and I’m sweating my face off, I don’t have a right to complain because everyone is always telling me how they love LA weather. So i’ll suffer through it—in style! So many people have done sunflower prints but I’m really loving American Apparel’s line right now. Paired with a vintage top (also from AA), these patterns seems to mix well together. Perfect for a stroll in this heat.
