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.

Belated Independence Day
Hey everyone! This is a belated post of a simple outfit I wore on the 4th of July for Independence day. Just a simple red, white, and blue outfit for a comfy celebration with friends =) Hope everyone had a great weekend!
Gold-Tipped Kicks - LeBunny Bleu
Le Bunny Bleu contacted me about doing a review on their shoes and I jumped at the chance! I got the cutest gold-tipped shoes with a hint of red in the wedge! I love how unique they are and also how comfy they are. The wedges are a foamy material which makes them super comfy to walk in and really light! I paired my shoes with a simple red white and blue outfit (with socks to match!!)—the perfect everyday summer casual outfit. Thank you Le Bunny Bleu! Make sure to check out their adorable collection here!

Here’s my second post in a row where I’m rocking’ some Von Trash Jewellery! Even though Street Fighter the game is pretty rad, the logo itself looks so awesome that it was worth getting it even if I had never played it ;) I wore this outfit to my dear friend Kira’s birthday! She was in NY all year being a smarty pants at Cornell Law School and she’s home for the summer, yayy!!!
This outfit is pretty simple in terms of color coordination. It’s more about the patterns and textures. I love fishnet stockings because of the pattern and it goes well with this lightweight fishnet-sleeved letterman’s jacket (Letter M for my boyfriend Matt! hehe). I always get stares from people who probably think fishnets are too hooker-ish but if we all ban together to wear them more often, can we get rid of this stereotype please? oh who cares! =)
