dive in

How breathtakingly kick-ass is this?! Since the photos speak for themselves I am only going to mention two things...

ONE: The above series of photographs are not photoshopped. These two models participated in a five day shoot where they free-dived, held their breaths and posed with these beautiful creatures.

TWO: I love when fashion meets public awareness for a good cause. Despite their name: whale shark, these creatures are gentle and harmless. Unfortunately, they're poached and sold for mainly their fins - BRUTAL.

velvet beanie
ultra slouchy cable knit sweater
leather shorts
strappy heels

inappropriate outfit for December weather in the Northern Hemisphere

... unless you live in Southern California and somehow you may get away with it.
I pretty much went through a good strong run with these shorts and I'm pretty sure it'll make its way on me again and again. But this slouchy velvet beanie is pretty much one of the best finds this fall/winter.
I'm in love and officially obsessed.

ShoeMint celebrated their one year anniversary on November 10, 2012 at Laurel Hardware in West Hollywood, CA. My team and I did an amazing job with setting up the brunch didn't we! It looks so beautiful, to see my work in beautifully captured photos and to say HARD WORK PAYS OFF! It was an amazing day, nice little breeze to have the bunting sway in the trees, and to meet some lovely people.

I just want to say, as a young woman who is trying to find her way, anything is possible if you put the effort in, to never give up. And with Thanksgiving coming soon, I AM THANKFUL FOR THE PEOPLE I HAVE IN MY LIFE!

in between

The last outfit shot of me before my big move out of NYC...
I'm sure the city has much colder weather that would deem my outfit inappropriate, but it works for current conditions here in LA. I tend to throw on a larger piece of outerwear over a spring/summer silk dress in a sad little attempt to mentally hold onto one last ounce of warmer weather.

Thin summer dresses with oversized jackets and shorts with thick chunky sweaters... May seem silly, but when the mornings and evenings have over a 20 degree difference sometimes it just makes more sense.

shake it out

extra long shadows +
fully beaded sleeves & a tail makes for a fun outfit to shake around in.
With the holidays coming up, we can all justify wearing beaded sparkly things as 'normal' attire. Or for those like me, everyday attire. 

if you like the top so much, you can get it here !

Scarlet Slasher

A bloody crimson color for the kick-off of holidays whether it's Halloween to Christmas, I can see myself wear this for all occasions. And of course, I put it with a beat-up shirt to make sure I don't look too done-up & more day appropriate.

Get the skirt here

On another note, my heart goes out to all NYCers and my friends on the east who had a blasting storm come through! My best wishes & lots of love <3
