Be still my heart... a party would form around these Lanvin metallic leather sandals whether it was New Years Eve or a random week night. If the shoes could talk I think they would say, "5, 4, 3, 2, 1... HAPPY NEW YEAR!"
On Lindsey (above): American Apparel dress, Forever 21 Fur Vest, Forever 21 necklace, handmade necklace, J Crew striped belt as headband, Forever 21 sunglasses and H&M booties.
Fur seems to be a necessity in a closet and a recent obsession of mine—fake of course to all my furry friends out there. I found these fun pieces at the wallet friendly Forever 21 and H&M. Of course no one wears/styles fur better than Rachel Zoe, who I hear has a line of faux fur pieces coming out, yes please.
Our hairdresser is our best friend for a reason. Curly, straight, thin, wavy, thick or frizzy, every girl is striving to control the beast of locks that sits atop her noggin. We spend money on products, sit under heat lamps for hours and sometimes get even more hair put on our heads from god knows where. But if it makes us happy and feel beautiful than you can't put a price on that. Some favorite products from my fellow mane tamers.
Every girl has a little cowgirl in her. Admit it, those boots make you want to jump on a horse in a flannel, cowboy hat, tight wranglers and rope tie a cow. Ok, maybe that's going a little too far. But the dressing up part sounds like fun and staying clean sans cow pies or mud while sporting a cowboy and indian inspired handbag by Horse + Nail sounds like a prairie dream come true. Horse + Nail takes my cowboy fantasy to the next level with handmade hobos made with 100% suede and handpicked leathers. Please note: Horse + Nail can also complete your Rock n Roll fantasy with their fall collection. Easy cowgirl, one step at a time.
The best gifts are the ones that are handmade. That's why I'm buying these driftwood wall pieces in bulk for the Holidays to give to my friends and family. Collected driftwood off the beaches of Santa Barbara are turned into these cool sunburst designs as well as driftwood picture frames, and they're affordable too—priced from $50-$250. email@example.com
Hello super hot coat... could I have you? Found this amazing number on my new favorite website OAK. Asymmetrical shape, oversized collar, pockets, wool, extra long sleeves—give it to me! Also spotted some infinity scarves in tie dye colors.
Sigh... the Spring 2010 collection is now available on Chloe.com and in boutiques. Some of my favorites above. How extremely necessary are all the cork wedges? I'll take one in every style and color thank you very much!
Rain, rain, and more rain in the forecast for Southern California next week... yippee. Now I can officially pull out the rain boots and build a cozy fire. I know you East Coasters are hating us right now (sunshine and 80 degrees on Thanksgiving anyone?) but at least you have four seasons! Some rainy weather picks to be fully prepared for El Nino take 20—doesn't it seem like they say that every year?
Vintage Lover does the dirty work for us. Scavenging through markets rescuing amazing furs, denims, tie-dyes and taffeta bringing old school glamour to our doorsteps via ebay. Loving the white dresses above. Be sure to check out their sales on Ebay here—they just had one but stay tuned for the next one. No more sifting through junk, get the good stuff right off the bat.
