A Summer Dress

A Summer Dress

Please excuse the complete lack of creativity in the title – it’s not at all a reflection of how excited I actually am about this look! As you probably know, Urban Outfitters had a 30% off *all*dresses and rompers in stores, so I hurried over to the Santa Monica store, braving the crowd, in hopes of scoring one or two cute dresses for the summer. Of course, UO never disappoints. I found this abstract black and white number that I adored as soon as I laid eyes on it. It’s from Silence and Noise, one of my top labels from…

A Couple New Things

A Couple New Things

Even though I consider myself to have pretty good self-control and high standards when it comes to shopping, I still somehow end up with a bunch of items in my closet that I just don’t love to wear. My biggest problem is not willing to let go of old pieces. Therefore, moving apartments was the perfect opportunity for me to finally cut ties with some of things that just don’t do it for me anymore, no matter how much I used to love them (talking to you, sequined sweater from high school!) Of course, cleaning out = new clothes! I…

Blue Black and Burgundy

Blue Black and Burgundy

      A leather jacket is forever. Not only does each one lasts for years and only gets better with time, the trend will never go out of style. I got this All Saints lamb leather jacket on sale in England where their items are already much cheaper than in the U.S. and I’m absolutely smitten with it. It goes with everything and makes me feel confident and and comfortable. It’s amazingly warm for its light weight as well. For this particular outfit, I paired it with a navy short-sleeved turtleneck sweater dress from Escada and burgundy booties from…

So here’s a simple, relaxed outfit perfect for an equally easy-going Saturday in the neighborhood. It’s not really anything new, but hey, if it works it works. Enjoy!

Silk & Stripes

Silk & Stripes

    I like to buy pieces, not outfits; but when a sudden spark of inspiration puts a few of my favorite pieces together perfectly… well, let’s just say it’s an exciting moment. This particular outfit features a couple of especially special buys – the Scotch and Soda blazer and the silk cami from Cami NYC. I’ve had a thing for blazers since I was much younger because they’re extremely versatile. It can be the standout piece of both a professional outfit and a night-out outfit, and there aren’t many other clothing items that can do that. I snatched this…

The City Winter Look

The City Winter Look

I haven’t lived in California all my life, but long enough that I know almost nothing about winter fashion. My idea of dressing warmly lingers from my childhood and mostly involves thermal pants and puffy jackets – very limited and not particularly fashionable. Of course, it didn’t take long for me to discover the exciting of world of fall/winter fashion as I observed stylish Londoners strutting up and down the tube during my 3-month stay in 2014. During my recent 10-day trip, I was a lot prepared than last time. I mostly stuck with classic pieces – turtleneck sweaters, skinny…
