matchy matchy

Don't forget to tuck in your FUPA

 I am a firm believer in punching up your outfit with bright accessories, and as you can see in the above photos I got a little carried away with the yellow suede. Is it fashion faux pas to match your shoes and bag? Who cares!

gold accents

I was feeling a little gold crazy the other day and this is what ended up coming together quite effortlessly. This perfectly asymmetrical knit with gold sequin elbow patches was a recent score from the LF Sale in La Jolla, and it also just happens to fall beautifully off the shoulder. I paired it with an oversized gold clutch, and if you look closely, even the shoes have gold studs along the top of the platform. I topped it all off with gold polish on my fingers. Voila!

plain and simple

Jeans and a T-shirt are an easy go-to look for me. With the right accessories you can make the look work in a million different ways so today I went with a leather vest and cuffed the jeans to show off these killer heels. With the intricate chain detailing they are the perfect mix of feminine and bad ass, don't you think?

Accessory spotlight: Marni for H&M

While perusing H&M the other day I remembered that the Marni collaboration had literally just debuted the day before. Even so, I was too late and there were very few items left to choose from. I was able to scoop up these earrings from the collection, they got my attention as they reminded me of little dragonflies dangling in the box. A score at $20. 

I wish I had the sense to go shop the collection sooner, I would kill for one of the sequin collars! 
What do you think?

monochromatic layering

I was in a blue mood today, sartorially speaking. The prepster inside me paired the pastel blue button-up and cobalt sweater with clean white skinnies, so I toughened up the look with a denim over shirt and studded bag. I really like the overall effect, very menswear inspired. Then again, how many dresses have you seen me wear? (...crickets...)
