Sun soaked

8/31/11

Leyendecker pants, Toi Et Moi cardigan, Romwe bag, Jeffrey Campbell booties, Michael Kors watch, Beso Beso bracelets and necklace

I was invited to the Dietch PR building in DTLA to style some stuff and again, it felt like real life Polyvore. SO fun perusing through racks and racks of great pieces from AGAIN, Generation Love, Leyendecker, Kahlo, J Park... I liked the simpleness of the Leyendecker pants (so soft!) and the Toi Et Moi cardigan so I thought maybe a pop of sunshine would go nicely with them.

Happy hump day! Can't believe this is my last post for August... and in 7 days I'll be in New York, breathing that East Coast air once more. EXCITED! Except I'm anxiously waiting for the arrival of my Urban Decay NAKED Palette and my black boots from Topshop. I've been an online shopping rat, trying to find the right black boots to graze NY grounds with, and alas I resolved on getting their (restocked!) Ambush. They bear a resemblance to the pretty-much-perfect Acne Pistol boot and I hope they do not disappoint, fingers tightly crossed. Let's hope I receive them before I board my plane first, ahh.

Summer heat

8/29/11

Glamour Kills tee, Sold Design Lab denim shorts, Guess sandals, Melie Bianco bag, Jessica Simpson hat, vintage necklaces, VJ Style rings

I swore to myself that I would never repeat the short tee/skin-tight denim cutoff combo after reflecting for years what horrible mistakes I had made with the Abercrombie & Fitch days... but the crazy heat beckoned the long-avoided combo. I just wanted to quickly pick up some stuff needed for my trip to NY (in 8 days, yea yea!) and still, I couldn't stand walking out in anything BUT a cropped tee and denim shorts. Great print on the tee though, no?

In other news... Chictopia, in conjunction with American Apparel, recently contacted me about a really sweet opportunity but I won't be able to announce it until the 1st of September, so stay tuned! Half a year ago I was able to spend a fantastic weekend in SF, where I got to meet the ladies behind the online fashion community (courtesy of Chictopia) - that was such a fun experience so I can't wait to see where this could take me.

Lately I've been feeling exceptionally exhausted but at the end of the day, I am feeling ridiculously blessed. Keep on counting... "Dream on, dreamer."

Beckley

All pictures taken by me

A couple weeks ago I was invited by Beckley Boutique's owner, Melissa, to style a few outfits. It was unbelievably fun and felt pretty much like playing on Polyvore, but in real life haha. All the pieces stocked at Beckley were incredibly chic and top notch.

1. Joie 'Trish' sweater, Eberjey bra, Myne silk shorts, Pour La Victoire pumps, CC Skye boxy purse
2. Beautiful People tank, Goddis striped cardigan, Gryphon hooded vest, cut25 waffle hat (love!), Gryphon leather shorts (unbelievably buttery), Elizabeth and James buckled boots
3. Camilla and Marc bouse, A.L.C. cardigan, J Brand jeans, Pour La Victoire shoes, Beckley Boutique necklace, CC Skye purse

Rusty nude

Le Mont St. Michel top, Chicwish lace shorts, Romwe purse, Style Rev pashmina scarf, Forever 21 boots and choker

As mentioned in my previous post, I'm not entirely a fan of pink hues... but the light rust color of this blouse is an exception. Initially I wanted to step out in the top and shorts only but I thought maybe I'd look too neutral so I threw on this cashmere scarf to provide some contrast.

Heading to New York in about two weeks. I am stoked to visit NY again - especially since this time around the weather will be so much more enjoyable (mid-70s vs. 14 degrees in January). I've been on the hunt to find nice, comfy flat boots, within a reasonable price, to stomp through NY grounds with... no luck so far :(

Lazy days

8/19/11







Le Mont St. Michel knit pullover, Forever 21 blouse, Kasil 'Geek' pants, Soda platform sandals, Shangri-LA gold citrine necklace

Hence the title, here is a quick, lazy post done in numeric bullet points:
1. Notice the intricate scalloping of the sleeves on the LMSM knit? So cute and subtle, great for layering IMHO.
2. Because my favorite color (the best color) is yellow, I instantly fell in love with this sheer yellow blouse from Forever. It is a little oversized, but the perfect color makes up for it.
3. When I'm feeling more than lethargic and want to seem somewhat presentable, I wear these 'Geek' pants from Kasil. Comfortably, roomy, and still structured. Makes me look alright even when I'm feeling like an ultra couch potato? Check. I think...
4. You can get the same sandals or another pair of shoes from My Hot Shoes with a 15% off entire purchase with the code "Jenny8".
5. Currently obsessed with my favorite summer drink: aguas frescas, yum!
6. Friday's always a good day. Happy Friday xx

Kasil: behind the scenes

all pictures taken by me

Assisting the Kasil S/S '12 shoot was beyond fun... and hot. Shot a bunch of pictures of Mia because she looked great in every single combination of clothing. Same with Sean (male model) - he looked crisp and perfectly modern vintage in every pair of Kasil denim he wore. The pictures looked amazing and I'm stoked to see the final product when the lookbook comes out next year.

Here's a public shoutout to David (second to last picture), creative director of Kasil, for inviting me to experience all of this! Had so much fun with the super sweet group of talented people. Also, Rae (girl in the pink) needs to get a blog going, no?
