COUPLE SHADES OF GREY

Happy Thursday! First off, I want to say “thank you” to all my lovely followers that wished me happy birthday, you guys are simply the best and I just want to hug and kiss every one of you. As we are getting closer to the end of the year, I’m meticulously going through my “goal list’ of 2014 and checking off everything that I’ve accomplished so far and I’m quite happy to say I only have one thing left to do!! I moved into my new home and I started decorating.. I’ll post pictures for you guys to see. I had an inspirational day at Milk Studios and whilst there decided to take some pictures. I love the state of the art architecture of the studio. I was wearing my good friend Mariah’s Phlo two piece finished off with a simple leather jacket.

SAINT LAURENT

Hey my lovelies, 

Sorry for the radio silence on outfit posts. Things have been a tad bit difficult but hey that is Los Angeles. Winter is officially here and you know what this means? (Actually, not much in LA, since we have paradise weather. Yes, I’m totally bragging). However, we still get to wear some light layers. I love fall weather, simply because you can be stylish without showing skin. There is something powerful in been fully clothed and still looking fabulous. I wore this all black look last week because well that is exactly how I was feeling: BLACK! Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – you don’t bother me.” My friend Nicolas Bates took this pictures on Rodeo drive at the Saint Laurent store. We had a a good time.

NEUTRALS

              It’s slowly but surely becoming sweater season in Los Angeles but I thought I’ll start my transition with a nude mesh bustier and a H&M studio white suit. I love an all white look, It’s a uniform of mine. I thoroughly enjoy the sleek simplicity of an all-white ensemble. All white/snowy outfits especially on my dark skin head-to-toe looks crisp, clean and bold—after all, it takes an audacious woman indeed to dress in all white without the worry of possibly spilling coffee (considering I drink like 4 cups a day) on herself. I wore this outfit for real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Lisa Vanderpump’s exclusive launch party for her new designs at Pump restaurant. Photography by: Dan Boissy.

ACE HOTEL, DOWNTOWN LA

So last weekend I spent quite some time in downtown, Los Angeles. Dan Boissy (photographer, check out his blog here)and I decided to visit Ace Hotel. Of course I got my first traffic ticket in Los Angeles right in front it (The perks of downtown). Overall, We took some awesome pictures. Ace Hotel is one of my favorite gems in Los Angeles. “Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles opened early 2014 in the historic United Artists building in Downtown LA. Built in 1927 for the maverick film studio, this ornate, storied and vibrant Los Angeles gem stands as a monument to a group of seminal American artists pushing out on their own, and anchors the Broadway Theater District’s modern renaissance”. If you are ever in LA make sure you visit!

Army Green & Fedora

                         Hello, 

                                   This is a quick post of what I wore to “Creativ Fashion Show” hosted at the Mondrian. Every year I promise myself to not participate in LA Fashion Week and every year I participate. I wanted to wear something edgy yet casual. I love this oversized jumpsuit from H&M.  It is beautifully tailored button up front section, elasticized waist seam, and long sleeves with roll-up tab and button with side pockets. I bought it for $19.99 (Eternally a recessionista!). I finished it off with this wide-brim fedora also from H&M and Zara Heels. My lovely and awesome friend Nicolas Batesdid this quick shoot for me. We literally did the whole shoot in five mins!!! (trying to beat traffic officers to our cars) And they are spectacular.
