Chain Mail

(C by Cynthia Rowley Banks booties + Zara chain mail clutch)

These are the two new lust-worthy obsession accessories I've added to my closet! I got the shoes for Christmas from my family and picked up the bag on a quick routine stroll through my favorite Zara on 5th ave in the city. It's very Saint Laurent meets Chanel with the chain accents on a sleek leather pouch (which also included a detachable strap you can take on & off for various looks). Both pieces are versatile and fabulous. Be on the look out for them in future posts!

Home for the Holidays

(Theory bomber, All Saints Lucille skirt, Zara clutch + pumps, vintage headband)

I took a brief break this month from blogging due to a technology meltdown with my computer/camera. Luckily it came at perfect timing of my birthday & the holidays, so I got to be worry free and not thinking about blogging/work/reality for a few weeks. It always nice to take a breather, especially to gain a fresh perspective on what my goals are for CRIMES OF FASHION next year! I put this little number together for dinner with my family. The weather has been unpredictable in Texas since I got here. Shorts & crops one day, coats & pants the next. Crazy! But I took advantage of the mild in-between afternoon. I love pairing this Theory quilted bomber (that I got for a steal of a price at Nordstrom a few weeks ago if I might add) on top of a very clean outfit accenting some of my favorite tones for fall - oxblood, black, and ash grey.

Headed to LA from here right after NYE! Cant wait for a little West coast living again.

I hope everyone has a safe & happy New Year!!!
Everything is infinite, so focus on your visions and make them a reality in 2014!

Saturday in Central Park

 ( Zara leather + skirt, OAK crop, H&M hat, Calvin Klein Isabella boots, Helmut Lang bag)

I'm out the door so i'll write more on this in a bit, just wanted to share a few photos of one of my current weekend look while hanging out in the city. It's finally turned frigid for the next 4 months, but we caught a sunny day out of nowhere and i'm definitely taking full advantage, hence my growing obsession for crop tops of every kind - This ribbed favorite of mine from OAK in NYC is so versatile!!! Rediscovered it in a box of clothes from last year and can't get over it, hence my last few outfit posts! 
My 24th birthday is around the corner and i'm making a mental bucket list for 2014 and all the accomplishments I want/need in my life! Counting down the days til my trip to LA next week! Cant wait for sun, surf, and sand in mid December!!!!

Dim the Lights

(Topshop suit set, vintage jacket+sunglasses, Rebecca Minkoff bag, Zara boots)

When looking to invest an efficient day bag, I find it to become harder and harder as I get older. I'm always in search of the perfect style, even though I don't know what that is til' I come across it in awe! I was browsing Nordstrom during their latest half yearly sale and walked past this Rebecca Minkoff bag (which may or may not have intended for this to be a baby bag), but something drew me to it. I like the messenger-ish shape- it's super roomy which is a plus, and the perforated leather + stud detailing gives it a nice edge. Wearing it with a combination of two different suit sets from Topshop. They're becoming super addicting, because it's an easy option that always turns out amazing! Also layering with a sick $25 lambskin gilet I scored at No Relation in the East Village a few days back! Love cheap, unexpected finds!

Off Geary & Polk

(J Brand denim/leather skinnies, OAK turtleneck, Tripp NYC moto jacket, Massimo Dutti boots)

If you're going to San Francisco...bee sure to wear your favorite leather and everyday denim to this idyllic city up North! Spent a few days there catching up with childhood friends while in California a few weeks back. Haven't been in almost 4 years, which is incredibly too long. I fell in love with the winding streets and free spirited population all over again. I'm missing those endless summer days, and chilly nights right about now in NY. Anyways, I'm wearing this rad jacket I picked up at Pat Fields last year and never got around to wearing. It's all of a sudden a favorite staple in my closet. Funny how that happens sometimes. My chameleon style in constantly looking for revamp from my past. Another great piece in my closet right now are these J Brand jeans! I love that you can take off the leather pieces and have the perfect cropped skinnies for day time frolicking! 

A must have for sure!

Can you believe it's already December? This year has flown by, but i'm so thankful for all the opportunities and travel moments I've had. Wouldn't trade those in for the world. I want a life full of vivid memories and incredible adventures of my past.
