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

What a great year it was for photos. I finally came out of my shell and realized it’s not as scary as I thought to set in front of the lens. Plus it’s a great way to share my personal style – seeing is so much different than explaining. My favorite part of taking street style photos is scouting out cool locations in Los Angeles and using fashion as a art form. From pink walls, to gowns in the forrest, I can say this year was definitely a good year. Which one is your favorite?

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
It certainly feels like summer and I’ve finally purchased a few more pieces in coral that I’m very excited about. I’ve also purchased a bright red heel; one of the first of many bright heels in to come. Brights are beautiful and it’s almost impossible to go to the store without seeing any jumping at you. Find the right shade for your skin color and join in. It’s transforming! Another staple every girl needs is a flowy romantic skirt. This one is by Walter Baker, a brand I’ve recently fell for. The last few pieces were found from Target. I don’t go often, but when I do I always find something I can’t leave without. They currently have bright suede heels by Mossimo in almost every color.
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.

I’m feeling a little like Marilyn Monroe, except lacking the wind angle.Â However, I couldn’t be more obsessed with Coral + White at the moment for Spring 2011. Currently trending this season is the wonderful crisp all white pallatte which I can’t wait to try, but what better to pair a bright color with a clean white?Â As we all know trends are a little all over the place these days: edgy, dark, gothic and some “witch” like for men and women with worn in boots and hats. Lately I’ve been gravitating towards pieces that are very clean, feminine, and girly.Â As you can tell I was inspired to by the twirl through the streets – I just couldn’t help it!!Â Booties - Sam EdelmanÂ Skirt – H&MÂ Sweater — H&MÂ Glasses - Ray Ban
