There are days where I feel just a little extra fierce. I wanted to create a tough and elegant look that seems like it has been borrowed from a man’s closet. While that’s not entirely true, if I could wear button ups every day for the rest of my life, I would. There is just something so empowering butting it up to the lats button:) I almost always want to do the half tuck, it creates an intentional asymmetrical look.

Today I have a wonderful giveaway for you. I know how much I love my Koret Tudor clutch (also featured HERE), so I teamed up with Koret to give away two clutches for my readers. The piece is incredibly versatile and can be worn both on glam and every day occasions plus did I mention the quality is absolutely exceptional? Each entry is not mandatory, but the more points you score the more chances to win! Good luck <3

Long time no post. SO happy to finally get out of the holiday funk and get back into posting outfits and videos. This look is a perfect combo for the California weather right now, not warm enough to wear a t-shirt, but you can easily sport sandals. I really enjoy pairing graphic sweaters and tees with everything this season. I’m particularly a huge fan of typography- it’s so chic! I also can’t get enough of this pastel fuzzy jacket, it’s so cuddly and creates a beautiful cozy texture to any look.

Crispy Comfort

Do you ever feel like wearing what you’re already wearing at home because it just feels so cozy and comfortable? This is exactly what I did with this look except I dressed it up with a button up for that casual yet put-together effect. I like the heaviness of the cable knit sweater dress combined with the lightweight crisp button-up. Mixing different elements like fabric weights and textures is the recipe for beautiful layering.

I wanted to thank you for the incredible support on the contest post, you guys nearly brought me to tears. I wanted to officially announce that I won the Fashionchick contest and will be attending Amsterdam Fashion Week next month. Even though you might be thinking that I’ve been doing a lot of cool stuff lately, this still means A LOT to me. I don’t take opportunities like these for granted and of course will be doing a meet-up in Amsterdam. I’ll let you know all the details as soon as I know more myself. Again, thank you for being there- you rock!

Studs & Cranberry Hues

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hello everyone,

This week I took an unexpected trip to Vegas with my friends and it was  blast. Even though the temperature was below freezing at times, I still enjoyed exploring the city in my cat-ear studded hat.

This beautiful studded clutch is a new addition to my wardrobe. I love the quality of the piece; truly exceptional craftsmanship and detailing- Koret never disappoints. I feel like now that my hair is a pastel color I can get a little bit more edgy with my style. The hair acts as a neutralizer to the dark hues. I’ve also been really enjoying layering my necklaces and rings while mixing metal colors and finishes.
P.S. Thank you so much for all the love on my last post. I was truly humbled by all your extremely kind comments. Thank you for being the best readers I could ever ask for. You are the reason I keep this blog alive!

What will you wear to Amsterdam Fashion Week?

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hello everyone,

I don’t think I ever shared with you the emotion I felt inside a few months back when I got the opportunity to attend NYFW.  My first fashion show felt surreal. As I got a bare glimpse of the luxurious flowing gowns from behind the lady with broad shoulders, I couldn’t believe my eyes that I was there in the middle of a real fashion show that was strangely muted by the flickering cameras sounding like angry crickets. That was the moment that made all those sleepless nights editing videos, sewing jewels and designing jewelry worth it. I felt like I was part of something beautiful, even though I could barely see what was going on. It was so special to me.

I was invited to participate in a competition to win a trip to Amsterdam Fashion Week, to which of course I said I would do my best to make a contribution. This look is something I would wear to the event, expect I would probably add some tights and layers to make sure I don’t freeze. I combined the flouncy houndstooth skirt with a relaxed silk cami and topped it off with my favorite structured leather jacket. The gloves are a touch of jeweled femininity that bring the vision of the look to completion.

Seeing your dreams turn into reality is magical and incredibly rewarding. I’ve always said that if my dreams don’t scare me they’re not big enough. I would love to one day attend European Fashion weeks like Amsterdam Fashion Week and just sit down with my camera and take pictures of all the beautiful street style.
Thank you Fashionchick for this wonderful opportunity. Be sure to check out Fashionchick to get a peek of all the latest and greatest in the fashion industry.

Leather & Lace

Hey everyone,

Recently I had the opportunity to attend the Little Market and Citizens of Humanity luncheon. I love drawing inspiration from decor and architectural details and I was stunned by the beautiful display of books, artwork and inspirational collages at the Citizens of Humanity showroom.

As most of you may already know I recently died my hair lavender just to add a little color in my life. Now I can fully embrace wearing B&W without feeling boring.

I played with the juxtaposition of structured leather and feminine lace. It created the perfect balance of an edgy city girl that is confident in her style. The scalloped detail in the skirt is a very flattering look for your legs, so if you ladies see anything like this around- snag it!  Also did I mention that I got to meet Lauren Conrad at the event? She was a total sweetheart and complimented my hair (I just about died inside).

As much as I love my laid back and grungy style, from time-to-time I like to revisit a classic combo like this one; the flared striped skirt and a chambray top. It’s look that’s perfect for meetings and afternoon cocktails. My new found treasure are these low-heel pink shoes. I just can’t get enough of the polished hardware!

It’s finally sweater weather here in Orange County, so I’ve been enjoying layering a little bit more. I’ve always heard the saying “Life gets better with a leather jacket”, but no one told me how much better life gets with a nicely tailored trench coat. I’ve been practically been sleeping in this thing for the last week. Since my style isn’t exactly classic I opted for a leather sleeve option that adds a more relaxed feel to the traditional trench. I’m really loving the combo between red and leopard- it just always works. The boots are also a new addition to my closet which create a nice calf silhouette due to the mixing mediums of the construction.

Thank you so much for reading! P.S. Congratulations to Joelle the Phillip Lim for Target handbag winner. Thank you so much for everyone who entered, there will be plenty more giveaways in the future so don’t be sad:)

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend. Just wanted to stop by and add little sparkle into your day. This look is an assortment of sparkly goodies and metallic textures. I am and will always be a strong believer in the classic leather jacket, but this paneled beauty with structured tailoring is my new favorite. It’s still quite warm here in Southern California, so I can’t treat you to too many warm outfits yet, but hopefully the sweater weather is almost here!

Asymmetrical Skirt & Contrasting Prints

Written by , Posted in Fashion

Hello everyone,

This week I had the wonderful opportunity of visiting New York for a 2nd time this fall. Besides being insanely happy to get a glimpse of what real fall looks like with all the dancing leaves and melancholic rain, I was very excited to speak on a panel at the Google office in Manhattan. They invited several youtubers along with myself to speak to leading brands in the fashion and beauty industry about Youtube becoming the next big thing in the media. I never usually get nervous about public speaking, but not going to lie, I was quite freaked out about this one. Thankfully everything went well and it was a fantastic experience! *phew*

I wanted to wear something that is sharp, professional yet highlights my personal style- you guys know my style isn’t exactly “office appropriate” most of the time. I styled this look around the asymmetrical faux leather skirt, which I think is a great transitional piece from your summer wardrobe. I wanted to add a preppy touch by wearing a subtle plaid buttoned-up blouse with a contrasting collar. I’ve been loving playing with contrasting prints- thus the mix between the plaid blouse and tapestry jacket. A good tip for mixing prints is to keep them within the same color scheme.

Thank you so much for reading and being on this journey with me! I’m very humbled to read all your comments on each post.
