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!

Tie-Dye Valentine / GlitterBandits.com
Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day! Some people hate it, some people love it, some people just don’t give a crap. Nonetheless, it’s still a fun day to dress up for despite being single or not. Put on those heart prints and bubble pink outfits!
This is actually a dress I made myself for my shop Glitter Bandits. If you’re interested in it you can GET IT HERE. The dress has a cool holographic print of Anime Eyes (cute!) and a tie-dyed double layered fabric. A simple 1 step outfit with a few accessories and I’m ready to go in no time! It’s the perfect weird romantic outfit I’d wear for Valentin’es Day. I guess I’m not the type to dress for my boyfriend; I dress for myself (even on a couple’s day! haha).

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!
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! ;)
