Summer Lovin’ :: Flowy dress & beautiful views

Tweet Kassia and Jen stayed with me last week in anticipation for IMATS.  It was their first time in Los Angeles.  And one of the things that Kassia could not leave LA without was a trip to the beach.  Her photos capture beautifully the spirit of Santa Monica pier! We played in the warm sand . . .

Borrowed from the Boys :: Tie, Loafers & an Oversized Clutch

Tweet I’m always inspired by menswear.  One of my secret obsessions is reading men’s fashion magazines =) There’s just something about men’s fashion that is simple, chic, and clean that I completely admire.  To give this look a feminine twist, I added my oversized ostrich clutch, statement ring, and high heel loafers. A menswear-inspired post . . .

Vintage Modern :: Lace & Leather

Tweet I felt experimental today so I decided to play with two different textures – lace and leather. This top is quite unique.  It has lace panel designs with an oversized shape.  I wanted to double the lace-factor by adding a black lace turtleneck underneath =) I just really love the vintage vibe of this . . .

Sunny Monday :: Blue shorts & YSL Chyc tote

Tweet It’s warm and sunny!  =) Sydney from PetiteLittleGirl posted an entry on these shorts a few weeks ago, and I’m so glad she did.  I really like the deep royal blue color and they remind me of Summer joy. To celebrate the sunny weather, I gave my PS1 her much needed beauty rest and . . .

Goofy :: Smiley sweater & Mulberry Alexa

Tweet It’s gloomy and cold in Los Angeles today.  And as a pick-me-up, I wore my smiley face sweater =) I think this sweater is the perfect candidate for a Lanvin make-over!  I’m thinking about adding embellishments and appliquéd lace pieces on the smiley face. I wanted to pair this whimsical sweater with a feminine bag.  The Alexa it is! . . .
