Orange seems to be one of those colors that only a small selection of people can wear well and I am definitely not one of them. But because halloween is right around the corner, I've decided to dust off the few orange clothes I do have and wear them not only in celebration, but also in place of a costume as I don't think I'll be dressing up this year.
What are you dressing as this Halloween??
vintage poncho, H&M top, thrifted jeans, Michael heels, Urban Outfitters bag
I recently found this vintage Banana Republic poncho, yes.. a poncho, but it's not your typical poncho that looks like a sheet overflowing you... It's sheer and the perfect fit. If you want to wear a poncho this season, to avoid overflowing yourself in material, try and find one that's a slinky material so that it falls against your body.
I found this blouse on one of my many thrifting adventures. I'm not sure if it's actually part of a kimono or if it's simply inspired by kimonos. Either way, I love it. I decided to pair it with my trusty fringe vest to give my outfit a 70's vibe.
BCBG dress, Michael shoes, unknown scarf, Marc Jacobs clutch
This past Thursday night, I attended the BCBG Gala at the Wilshire in Beverly Hills honoring Max and Lubov Azria (designers and founders). Little did I know, I would later get to meet Max and Lubov. When I did, it was such an honor. They are both fabulous and sweet people and Lubov is even more gorgeous in person! It was really important that I wore BCBG, especially because I met the designers. A tip of advice, If you ever attend a gala or event for a specific designer, be sure to wear that designer. To put it simply, it was a night I will never forget.
I love the rain. I love the feeling I get inside on a rainy day, and the smell of the street with a fresh pavement of rain. I love the warm, cozy and cute clothes I get to wear, listening to it fall, the gray tones outside, and mornings like today where I can wake up and sit in my warm bed, sipping hot coffee and blogging. I don't want it to go. If I ever move to another city, it will be to follow the rain.
Something about parking garages makes me cringe. I find their quietness and echo-effect to be quite spooky and I (secretly) fear being in them by myself. But fear not, I spent this past Saturday night with Taryn (of Style-Phenomenon) and we decided to use that spooky effect to our advantage and have a little fun taking photos in the parking garage before seeing The Social Network, which I highly recommend seeing.
I've recently discovered that much of my inspiration comes from guys..(as weird as that sounds). I envy how effortless their style appears and how with the right pair of ripped up jeans, the perfectly distressed tee, and a pair of loafers, they are ready to go. I love when a man has some style. I've even concluded that if I ever design clothing, I think I'll start in menswear.
The men in these pictures are the kind that steal my heart with a single glance...
