What to Wear for COLD Cold Weather!

Though I'm in LA now, I will be spending the coldest winter months in London, where a wool coat (albeit chic and stylish) does little to protect one from the dropping temperature. I feel like enough bloggers do not address the ultimate winter conundrum: how do I look cute while wearing clothes that are ACTUALLY appropriate for winter? A down jacket and snow boots can be hard to dress up, so its important to focus on layering statement pieces and wearing stand out accessories! Don't forget your moisturizing beauty products to ward off winter's dry skin!

A Last Minute NYE Idea: The Female Tuxedo

While I was shopping the post-holiday sales, hopelessly searching for an inspiring NYE look- a fun skirt, a cool jumpsuit, a great cocktail dress- I just couldn't help be uninspired. Everything looked the same to me. What can I do that's different? Wear PANTS?! WAIT. YES. I WILL WEAR PANTS. And the idea of the female tuxedo came to fruition! Look sharp, cool, and sexy in the girl-wearing-guy's clothing kind of way while being the only female at the party comfortable enough to get DOWN on the dance floor!

Make the tuxedo NYE appropriate by adding sequin and leather details, as well as metallic accessories, for a look that packs a punch.

In a few short days, I will be leaving to spend my next semester in London! It's been an incredible year for London, between the Olympics and the announcement of Kate Middleton's pregnancy, and I can't wait to take advantage of what this incredible city has to offer: a rich history and incredible fashion.

Of course, some of the biggest designers are UK-based, including Burberry, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and mass-retailers like Topshop and Asos. Check out my shopping wish list for my time in London!


Celebrating this wonderful year of blogging with my best looks!

Thank you everyone for a wonderful year!

Dreaming of a White Christmas

Who said you can't wear white after labor day? Well, it doesn't matter, because the fashion elite, in their Fall 2012 collections, said you can and SHOULD. Inspired by the likes of Derek Lam and Phillip Lim, as well as countless street stylers showing off their snowy ensembles, I decided to give sunny Los Angeles a white Christmas. 

Then- Summer 2012
