This past weekend my boyfriend and I went to go see the Calder exhibition at LACMA because I absolutely looovveeee his work. Unfortunately there was no photography allowed but if any of you are locals, you MUST see it! It was absolutely fantastic! Another exhibition we stopped by was the DVF “Journey of a Dress” exhibition. It was a wonderful exhibition filled with pictures, videos, crazy amounts of dresses (obviously) and walls covered in amazing colors & patterns. I had to take a photo against everything so I apologize for the photo spam, hehe. Now I wish I had snakeskin walls!
He’s a Keeper
You know you’re boyfriend’s a keeper when he agrees to wakeup early to go to Target with you for a “serious” shopping mission. Incase any of you missed it, Target did a collaboration with Peter Pilotto which released February 9th. Checkout the whole lookbook Here. So we planned to go to the Target we thought would be the least crowded, and thankfully it wasn’t horrible… BUT there were some definite catty stares going around. There were girls eyeing the last piece of their size being snatched & girls hoarding multiple items at a time. Nonetheless my mission was successful and I can only be thankful to my lovely boyfriend! Today I’m wearing one of my favorite pieces from the collection, a signature Pillotto printed dress, belt included!

I Come in Peace
This amazing bright green skirt has been sitting on my rack dying to be worn. The color reminds me of an alien invasion! The polka dot top adds some busyness so prevent a colorblock look (not that colorblocking is a bad thing). The pink bandana adds a complementary color to the entire look… and actually the pink, green, and black together is like the perfect color scheme of my favorite food: a watermelon.

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? =)

On the Up and Up
I’ve steadily been getting busier with non-work related things. Well more like personal work. So I apologize for the lack of updates. This outfit I actually wore a couple weeks ago. It is getting soooooo chilly in Los Angeles lately! It’s actually fantastic because I love the cold and it reminds me of my travels in Europe last winter! It also reminds me that I lack winterwear… haha don’t all Southern Californians realize that around this time of the year? Maybe that’s why some people don’t welcome the chill. It’s really just out of inconvenience. I’m currently recycling my newest wool coat from American Apparel and loving it =)

My relationship with Autumn weather in Los Angeles is a love/hate one. Usually the days consist of freezing mornings and hot afternoons. As you can probably predict, it causes a confusing outfit dilemma. I want to wear shorts for the afternoon but don’t want those goosebumps in the morning. Well, I can’t complain too much. Some cold weather is better than hot weather every day! This is an outfit I wore over the weekend with a frilly top I got long ago and never featured on my blog. I’m always obsessed with layer-able items since they add really great dimension to an outfit.

Officer Jenny Costume
I handmade my Halloween costume this year! After much stress, blood, and tears I finally ended up with this gem. Do you recognize me? I’m Officer Jenny from Pokemon! I used to watch Pokemon when I was in elementary school and this costume made me really nostalgic. I was really happy with the way my whole outfit came together! Everyone is really astounded that I hand made it so I couldn’t be more proud! t should’ve made the hat a bit shorter but other than that, ba-da-bing ba-da-boom! ;)

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.
