Throwing a statement coat over a muted canvas is my approach to a winter’s day in LA. Loving how versatile this faux fur crop is - it’s quite easy to layer and is just as flattering with lighter colors as it is against dark colors. Found this one perusing all the good wintry coats at A&F, along with these perfectly destructed and cropped flared jeans that actually fit very well from hip to mid-leg (for a short girl). My denim go-to since day one.

California dreamin'

It has probably been our warmest autumn yet and while there are worse things, I'm starting to wonder if this perpetual summer is just going to keep me in la-la mode. There are things I've been wanting to check off my lists--to-dos, must-eats, go-sees--fall/winter pieces I want to style for Neon Blush, but I'm feeling thwarted by the days' lingering rays. Good thing Abercrombie is keeping it easy to layer it on light with their latest cargo of crew sweaters and faux fur options (ordered this recently- love it). Fall-time layering in Los Angeles equates to: pairing a crop top under a lightweight poplin and occasionally throwing over a dutiful anorak and calling it a day with loose, destructed jeans. Casual with a hint of boyish ease. I'm very much a product of my environment and until I position myself in a place with the right conditions, I guess this'll do for now x

Neon Blush, CLUSE watchesCluse watch

This mini 'La Vedette' watch from Cluse is my preferred size of their latest velvet collection. The fabric is been having a moment this season and I'd been waiting to find a watch that makes great use of it without parading it. The silver face with dark blue velvet straps on this one is clean and elegant but subtle. It's perfect for doing laid-back chic--I like putting them over long sleeves when I sport watches and working it into my everyday fit has gone seamlessly.

Of all the things I own from Louise et Cie's collection of the copiously chic, these 'Balasia' block-heel boots and 'Alis' small cross body have got to be my favorite of all. The boots are assertive with that taut leather and the eye-catching block heel; the bag's luxurious pony hair in a rich jet-black, complete with Louise et Cie's signature octagon turn lock in gold hardware... all the elements, it's just perfect. Keeping these on from day to night - repeat.

Live fast real slow

This weekend was spent lazing around town in this amazing oversized and half-stitched, undone sweater from Zadig & Voltaire and balancing that with a little bit of pizzazz underneath, a peek of python and dainty combat boots. A hodge-podge of sorts, but that perfectly summed up my leisurely activities of the past week-- a rollercoaster of: late nights and libations, hot days and chilly nights, ethnic comfort food, iced coffee runs in the mornings, and staying perfectly still and quiet on the weekends. Find me somewhere in the middle of live-fast and real-slow.
