Happy Turkey Day

Dear Diary,

My family came over for thanksgiving. Instead of basting a turkey, we went out to eat this year.

I celebrated in a silk Houndstooth blouse and leather high waist shorts which were both vintage.

The patent belt was from American Apparel and I used a NARS lip pencil in Bolero.

I have developed an obsession for tights this fall/winter season. They were purchased at Urban Outfitters, and the wedges are by Steve Madden.

Hope you are all having an awesome weekend with your loved ones :).

Versace for H&M

Dear Diary,

Donatella Versace launched her long awaited line,Versace for H&M, four days ago in stores all across the globe. I arrived at 6am, and still managed to get all the stuff I wanted.
  You are probably wondering why a person would line up just to buy clothing?  Well, there is a method to this madness. If you are a huge fan of print, bright hues, and quintessential pieces then you were definitely in the right place! I'm all for daring pieces that can be paired with other items to make them practical. And when buying statement clothing, I make a conscious effort to buy "separates".  Even if someone may have the same pair of pants as you, his/her complete outfit would not be tantamount to yours. Not to forget, the price points of the pieces I bought were also very satisfying to my pockets!LOL

Below are the things i bought:

You can never go wrong with a pair of leggings. They have a resort feel to them,which  I love! ($29.95).

This soft jersey t-shirt is from the men's collection. The turquoise background with the leopard print and enormous gold detail gives it a rock and urban streak ($24.95).

A scarf to me is a closet essential ($34.95).

I love stacking up on statement jewelry like this emblem choker. They come in handy when you want to give your outfit an edge ($39.95).

Hope everyone has a lovely turkey day tomorrow, i know i will ;D.

Citrus Print Part II

Dear Diary,

Oh yes i did! The citrus printed blouse from my previous post has been transformed  into a skirt. It was quite the struggle to get it past my shoulders down to my waist, but that did not stop me from making my vision come to life.

 My ribbed leggings, beanie, and the buckled booties adds more of a street edge. I completed my look with a viscose tunic to give it that chic factor it was lacking. This might not be your everyday attire, but i think the end result was pretty successful no?

  Happy Thursday everyone.

Stella McCartney SS11

Dear Diary,

I am a huge fan of print and food! That is what instantly drew me in to Stella McCartney's innovative spring line. This citrus print collection  for me was love on a silk fabric, but certainly out of my budget! Lol.

I found a blouse with a similar print at Zara in the summer, and I decided to give my purchase a spin by incorporating it into 2 different looks over the  the week. Here is a sneak peek of my upcoming post.

Karl Lagerfeld pour SEPHORA

Dear Diary,

Chief designer of Chanel's fashion house, Karl Lagerfeld is hitting the beauty retailer Sephora with his own holiday collection on Nov 6. The goodies include a doll in his image, nail polish, and other accessories. Unfortunately, those of us in the states will not be seeing the line on our side of the globe. They can only be purchased in the Europe and Singapore locations :(. Doesn't mean we cant stare at the images and dream *sigh*

Fashion Accessories

Dear Diary,

What do you do when you want to spruce up your wardrobe? FASHION ACCESSORIES!!  They are decorative items that complement and supplement clothing, like handbags, jewelry, hats, watches,sunglasses,scarves,tights and so on. Here are some photos of me and a few of the accessories i own.

I feel a personal connection to each and every accessory i purchase. They all serve  a purpose and can be played with in different ways. A plain dress can be transformed into a fun look with a printed head scarf/clutch. T-shirt and jeans can also be given an edge with the right bracelets ,earrings or necklace.

Fashion accessories have been an evolving trend throughout the 1900s, and have proven to be one of the biggest markets in the industry today.

Florals and Hearts

Dear Diary,

The weekend is here again and the weather is absolutely bipolar! Can't complain though, I would take  75 degrees of heat anyday over a cold climate.

The heart print shirt and floral dress(which i wore as a skirt) are both from h&m,. My satchel is from urban outfitters.

I went with an achromatic outfit to make the hue of my satchel pop!

My Saturday

Dear Diary,

Another  night in the streets of L.A. I love mixing prints!!
It adds that edge a basic outfit may lack.

Booties-Saks Fifth brand
And believe it or not,my tights are from Ralphs lol! The local grocery store always comes in handy for last minute items ;-).

Have an awesome week everybody.
