Oh, what an amazing 3-day weekend! Two days go by so fast, but three days is JUUUST right. I got so much done, it was lovely. I had a yard sale ($40 dollars in one hour – wahoo!), organized my car, house etc. (that felt so good!) then relaxed with some friends at The Grove. My boyfriend and I went to his friend’s house in the Marina for Memorial Day. It was a little clowdy when we got to the beach but we took a couple shots, nonetheless!

The new “LBD” for spring: the little white dress. It’s chic, summer-y, and easily dressed up or down. Whether you create a hippie chic look with beach waved hair and simple jewelry or a dressed up look with heels and a black leather dress, an embroidered midi white dress is great for warm weather days. One thing to keep in mind – watch when you’re eating as white can stain very quickly. (Eek, I’ve done it one too many times). Agadir Argan Oil spray can easily be brought with you on the road and will make your hair shine and also smell divine. It’s super cheap from Target! Add a pop red lip and a bright red/orange polish to complete the look. Happy Saturday all! XO

It’s officially winter and Los Angeles was feeling the cold weather this weekend – brrrrr! I’ve been spending a lot of time in doors these days, enjoying the Christmas tree, making dinners and hanging out with friends at the apartment. But when it’s time to get out, the layers are key! I love leather jackets and feel it’s always a great way to incorporate a little ‘rocker chic’ into your outfit. It was freezing and starting to rain but we took a couple snaps in the neighborhood, followed by a delicious cocktail at Messhall and pizza at Little Doms. Quite the perfect day if you ask me! Wishing you all wonderful times with friends, family and more.

I love the train station in Glendale, hidden down the street away from everything. The historic building is magical at sunset, and happens to be only 10 minutes from my place. It’s definetly a great place for photos and beautiful at dusk. By now you’ve seen my faux fur vest, that goes with just about anything. What’s on your wish list?

Still loving my faux leather pants! This time I paired it with a white button down by Odylyne, a faux fur vest (channeling Rachel Zoe) and my new shoes from Sole Society. The hat was a last minute addition. I found it at a garage sale for $1! What do you think, do you like this look? XO, SWP

One of my favorite things about being a fashion blogger, is having the opportunity to use photography as a medium creativity. Â Los Angeles has everything you could want for a cool backdrop from hotels, to graffiti walls, to the mountains, or sea. Â It’s amazing how many fun places there are to shoot in Los Angeles.
While I was on my way to an event to view Wren’s SS12 collection, in collaboration by a short film with Gia Coppola (post to come soon on Style Section LA), I stumbled upon this amazing pink wall. Â I’d tell you where it is, but I’d have to steal your camera.
If nothing else, I hope this post inspires you get creative. Â I love how photography can instantly turn into art, while style being a medium to create.

While wondering dowtown LA looking for inspiration and street style to shoot for an amazing new site called Beautiful Stranger TV in New York, I saw Kasey.Â Her hair caught me first, but her whole look was adorable! I pretty much chased her across the street and stopped her in Starbucks to see if she I could shoot her picture.
Meet Kasey, one of LA’s style and beauty girls.
1. Name: Kasey Elise
2. Occupation: student
3. Living in: Los Angeles
4. Hometown: Los Angeles
5. What are you wearing now?: Knit dress by forever 21, Steve Madden Military Boots, Macy’s tear drop necklace, and Heritage brown leather jacket
6. How do you describe your personal style? I wouldn’t say that I have a particular style because I basically take random pieces that I love and put them together;
7. Favorite LA stores to shop at? I literally shop everywhere! I just pick up cool things I see in different shops around the city. From vintage stores in Los Feliz, Hollywood and the valley, to hippie shops in Santa Monica and Venice, and then the internet of course. There’s nothing like receiving something new in the mail, especially when they’re shoes!
8. Favorite designer? Omg it’s so hard to choose! Chanel and McQueen of course, but I love Alexander Wang, Miu Miu as well
9. What do you like a about style and fashion? Fashions fade, style is eternal! I love that every person (thats in the fashion of course) has their own unique way of putting things together. I almost think of it as art. You just use fashions to create your vision. Just as an artist does with paint and brushes.
