Take it to the streets

( J Brand denim, Massimo Dutti boots (similar here), Tripp NYC moto jacket )

 I think I may have finally came across the holy mother of grail in my J Brand jeans addiction. Added another sweet pair to the collection - the leather zip off cuffs turn these amazing skinnies into a covetable pair of chic-ish clam diggers as my mother would call them. Way more versatile in person then i'm probably describing them!

Glimmering Lights

(vintage lambskin coat, Zara skirt, YSL shoes)

What can I say about LA? 
Besides being one of my favorite places to travel to for it's endless sunshine, incredible shopping, amazing beaches, palm tree lined streets, and picture perfect scenery. In the 5 years I lived there I never made it up to Griffith Observatory at sunset. So glad I finally did - it was a beautiful backdrop for this look. I figured it deemed best fit for the first of many pairs of YSL's i'll be collecting. Starting with this coat - it's great for fall. I love how big it is..definitely a statement piece, for sure. And as for finding the perfect evening sandal for a night like this, I left that up to Mr. Palati. I love the criss cross satin straps - so feminine, yet structural. You may take out the Yves, but clean lines are here to stay for Saint Laurent!

It ain't Saint Laurent without Yves!

Welcoming the newest introduction to my shoe closet! 

I'm all about investing in the classics and this is my first pair of YSL's. I've dreamed about this day for a long time and it's finally here!

NEW OUTFIT POST featuring these, coming tomorrow!

Casual Dates at Elysian Park

( Thrifted top + backpack, AA skirt, 3.1 Phillip Lim sunglasses, Zara boots)

This look was in relation to an accessory post I made a few weeks back. I stayed near this hideaway park while I was in LA and fell head-over-heels in love with it's prehistoric beauty. It seriously reminds me of a scene right out of Jurassic Park. As much as I love always being put together, sometimes you gotta let your hair down and live a little..especially for a prolonged BFF date! I picked up these sick boots from the AW13 collection that just came out! - and i'm happy to report i'm never taking them off. I always fall for a new Zara boot every season due to chic reasons of wearability- this year being no different! Paired with my trust tennis skirt you've seen a million times and a fun crop top I picked up on the boardwalk in Venice.

Back in frigid NY, but the scenery is GORGEOUS this time of year!
Be expecting plenty of sunny posts while I get the rest of my LA/SF adventures out of the way.

French Persuasion

( ISABEL MARANT x H&M suit blazer, OAK crop top, All Saints skirt, Massimo Dutti boots)

It's officially time to kick off another collaboration with Swedish powerhouse, H&M. This time with one of my favorite French labels, Isabel Marant. Known for her feminine, pseudo hippie cool looks, this new collection embodies the spirit of her designs to a tee! I immediately fell in love with this oversized suit blazer with silk lapel. I love the ribbon tie option to give it a proper touch when necessary! Check back this week for more looks of mine featuring this latest collab! 

I had so much fun at the pre-shopping launch party last night here in LA! They always know how to throw a lovely event! GET YOUR FAVORITES AT SELECT H&M STORES WORLDWIDE starting tomorrow, November 14th!

I'm headed back to NYC first thing in the morning. Rushing to pack for my flight, i'm never ready to leave the West coast! Back to reality..
