Rock of Ages
Faux fur coats of all different colors are my newest obsession. I wish I could bring them all on my trip since I know I’ll be freezing my butt of in Europe! Boy did I take advantage of Nasty Gal’s Cyber Monday Sale with this coat… I think it’s my favorite coat as of today! I feel like I belong in the Rock of Ages in it (in a good way, haha!) I wanted the similar pastel palette one they came out with too! What did I wear this snazzy outfit to today, you ask? To to opthamologist! Now back to packing (and sneezing because of all the dust, ugh!)

In Another Life
Happy belated Thanksgiving to all you Americans! I just got back from a lovely vacation up in Sacramento with my boyfriend’s family (they are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G btw). It’s been a crazy break though, with a career change, my future plans have changed dramatically! In the greatest way imaginable though… Starting in January my boyfriend and I are fulfilling our dream to travel for awhile. 3 Months in Europe, starting with my dream destination, Ireland! Ohhhh I can’t wait! I’ve gotta figure out my blog entries though because I would hate to have a long hiatus. Perhaps I can blog about my travels if everyone is interested? =)
Anyway, this outfit was pretty hastily put together at the last minute. Really, I’m just excited to wear this hat. I feel like in another life I was Zorro in this hat, haha. Which, by the way, I’ve met Antonio Banderes and can confidently say he is just as rad as you think he is.
This is a look I wore on Monday:
“Mondays are grunge days. They’re long and hard with the whole rest of the week ahead… so I just want to lounge around in a tshirt, jeans, and a soft flannel shirt. Is it silly that I just like the colors and design of this shirt? Everyone keeps asking me if I’m a fan but truth be told I don’t even recall any of there songs… shameful. My coworker is a huge fan and right as I walked in she goes, “Is that G&R?” and I had no clue what she was talking about until I realized I was wearing my Guns n Roses tee, haha.”

Yesterday I went to a Birthday / Going Away Party for my wonderful friend Kira! She’s off to law school at Cornell! If you’re reading this Kira, good luck with law school, we’re going to miss you BIG TIME! =)
Crazy 10 person pyramid they almost got!
That’s Kira in the middle being all gorgeous =)
So this is what I wore to the BBQ. It was a nice sunny day in the park so I decided to sport some bright colors, a floppy hat, and a watermelon print shirt! A cold sweet watermelon on a hot summer’s day is the best thing ever, don’t you think? I always say that watermelon is my favorite food and I could never get sick of it! I was so excited to find this shirt at the American Apparel flea market, which by the way if you live in Los Angeles you NEED to check it out! The prices are ridiculously cheap and they even have some new stuff out, like this watermelon print! It’s a great way to support some Made in the USA stuff without breaking the bank. =)

Hello Summer, Are You There?
I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day Weekend! Three-day weekends are always a treat, but most importantly the sales! My inbox was flooded with sales and coupons! I didn’t really take advantage of them like I should have because I’m anticipating my trip to NY this next coming week but it’s worth the trade off! Today was pretty hot, and I’m wondering when summer is going to officially start. Of course in Los Angeles, “summer days” come during all seasons of the year, haha. I can’t honestly say that Summer is my favorite season but I love the atmosphere of happy vacationers. This will be my first summer without a vacation in awhile now… welcome, Cindy, to the real world without the safety net of school! So anyways, the warm but breezy weather today called for some light pastels and a flowy skirt. I wore my very first Wildfox purchase—a bracelet, because I can’t bring myself to buy any of their ridiculously expensive clothing… but I love their collection!
