New York Fashion Week

I love living in Los Angeles because of the warm, year round climate, but I will admit I literally anticipate the arrival of the fall season all year.  Fall is my favorite season because for me it stands for sweater weather, pumpkin spice lattes, sugary scented candles, and a little reminder of home.  Being so accustomed to the warm Southern California temperatures, the second the temperature slightly drops, I know this is the perfect excuse to go shopping for a new fall wardrobe!! This year fall trends are inspired by New York Fashion Week fall 2017; pantsuits, fancy feathers, spliced tracksuits, corduroy, soft leather, andRead More →

I’ve come up with a shortlist of thrift shops in LA where you’re guaranteed to find something you’ll love, and at a reasonable price.

Just a few years ago, a lot of people would consider sneakers to be a part of their workout attire, or what they’d wear to run errands in on a lazy Sunday. Labels like Adidas and Puma, that were big in the ‘80s and ‘90s are back. Now new designers are emerging and capitalizing in on the trend. Not long ago, sneakers wouldn’t have been seen in most office settings, now in many they’re considered acceptable work attire—if worn correctly. They’ve been seen at NYFW, on the red carpet, and on trendsetters and celebrities as everyday wear. Here are some examples of how to look polished, andRead More →
