Fashion Faves: Black, White and Stripes

Fashion Style Blogger Style WAx PoeticWhat To Wear in LA



Los Angeles' Best  Fashion Los Angeles Top Fashion BloggerAlexandar Wang Emle Tote BagTHE LOOK

OUTIFT: Top -Zara (similar striped top from Topshop); Skirt – so ridiculously affordable from SheInside; Heels – Zara.com (similar here and maybe even cuter)

ACCESSORIES: Ring – c/o Mini Etta Ring by Jami; Necklace – c/o Blue Statement Arthur and Livingston Necklace; The Emile Textured Leather Tote by Alexander Wang & Karen Walker Number One Sunnies

Happy Friday, loves. I’m really excited to share my look with you today: it’s all about black and white stripes. It’s a slight obsession I have because I think everything looks good in stripes. It’s a pattern without being too much and you know by now how much I love black and white! Can’t get enough.

Probably like you, I can’t afford everything designers which is why I love putting together outfits that feature high and low pieces. My skirt was $30, my shoes $50, my top only $30 marked down and my highest piece is a piece worth investing in, my Alexander Wang Tote.

I SO believe that being fashionable is about expressing your own style and you don’t have to spend everything designer to look good. Believe it! Sending you off into a fashionable weekend – connect with me on Instagram to stay chat more!

Moto Distressed Jeans

IMG_8328IMG_8331IMG_8343IMG_8351This past weekend in Los Angeles was seriously ridiculous. I had to pinch myself, are we dreaming? It’s summer… in March. While I love the look of layers and chic coats, we’re dressing light and airy clothing as though it’s summer and I’m not complaining.

Lately, I’ve been on a distressed boyfriend jean kick. They’re so easy to throw on for the weekend with flats and a t-shirt then switch them up for a nighttime look with heels and a blouse. They’re the perfect weekend or day look, without having to try too hard. My tote has a beautiful story, one that I would talk your ear off in person if I had the chance to. It may be best if you just read it here. What’s great about this tote is that the accessories are interchangeable. That means each season (or every other weekend) you can switch out the accessory for a different look. Love! Hope everyone is off to a great week and excited for spring. I’m loving daylight savings which means summer is just around the corner!

Happy Presidents Day: Let’s Shop!

July9

Three day weekends always make me happy.Two days normally fly by an that one extra day makes you feel like you have so much extra time for important things, of course, like shopping. (Ok, we did find time to eat mexican food and take a nap by the pool in 85 degree weather. That was pretty important as well). This weekend is a special once combining pre-Spring, end of the winter sales, and of course President’s Day sales as well. It’s a really great time to shop and I hope you enjoy! XXX

Piperlime is offering 25% all chic styles (anything less than $150).
Steve Madden is offering 20% off all styles all weekend when you enter code PRESIDENT20at checkout.
Shop the President’s Day sale at Revolve Clothing and save up to 50% off your favorite items! I love Revolve because everything on their site makes you feel a little cooler. This glam with an edge. This simple white dress is perfect for so many occasions. I’d wear it with moto boots and a leather jacket, mixing feminine details with rocker chic.
Take 40% off weekend must-haves at THE OUTNET this weekend,
Gap is offering an extra 40% off. How about this floral bomber jacket for the perfect winter to spring tradition jacket? Yesssss, please. It’s marked down, too.

Weekend Sales

dacc5ce3f2b371adfe3331735e79e194

JOES JEANS – is offering 30% off denim through Monday with code DEMIM30. They actually have more than just denim. I love this Valentino Floppy Hat and their Classic Skinny.

ASOS – is offering 20% off all regular and sale priced merchandise with code GOLONG. I love this pretty plaid blouse and who can resist this River Island Scarf Print Pencils skirt  or this peplum darling number.

DVF – is offering 20% off their clearance items until Monday. This fur sweater jacket is to die for – comfort and chicness, as are these mixed material leather pants. They scream hot!

GIGI NEW YORK – Are you looking for a new handbag? Gigi New York having their winter sale offering an extra 30% off their sale items, and there are tons. Add a touch of color to your outfit with this Majenta Cross Body Embossed Python Bag. You can personalize it, too. I love the idea of this jewelry roll too, because so many times don’t store my jewelry well when I travel.

FEDLER FEDLER –  this beautiful line is created by two sisters who have established a signature style with their feminine rock and roll aesthetic. It’s bold, yet feminine, which makes sense why it’s been worn by Rihanna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Florence and the Machine and Allison Mosshart. A perfect example of this is their organza skirt, which is now an extra 30% off. I love the cut and it can be used for years to come. I’m also dying for this look – the trousers are simple and professional, and give off the impression of ease when paired with a simple black graphic tee.

MATCHES FASHION – is offering up to 70% off on their sale merchandise. This contemporary Jacquard shift dress is a classic and this moto jacket will have the party stopping in their tracks. For reals.

EQUIPMENT – my favorite line of button down tees and sweaters, is offering 20% off all sale items until tomorrow. I love this color block turtleneck sweater.

How To: Sweatshirt Chic

hbz-street-style-pfw-ss13-100112-203-lgn_Kenzo Sweatshirt

One of the easiest, chicest looks these days that’s not only cute, but comfortable, involves a sweatshirt. The comfy piece that you’re used to wearing on the couch, is now acceptable at work, during the day or night, and actually ENCOURAGED when brunching.

Now, what to do and how to wear the sweatshirt is where it get’s tricky. One of my favorite looks is shown above, with a flirty skirt (or skirt worn as a dress), boots, and chunky necklace. It’s flirty and fun but not overdressed. It’s great for day time and can be worn at night with tights and jacket. Not only will everyone think you’re adorable, you’ll be comfortable, all day! I’m sharing a few more looks with you below and a few pieces for you to shop the look. XO

Holiday Outfit in San Diego

IMG_5342DSC_1785DSC_1757DSC_1717DSC_1726 DSC_1749DSC_1763OUTFIT

Black & White Strip Top - Forever21; Black Full Skirt (old) – H&M; Sunnies – Karen Walker Eyewear; Faux Fur – from my Vanessa Bruno Vest but similar here and here; Sole Society Purse ℅; Black Booties – Dolce Vita ℅ LC Neiman Marcus; Gold Cuff ℅ Robyn Rhodes; Similar Gold Cuff with Turquoise – Kelly Wearstler

I love the holidays and I can’t believe they are gone. They come and go so quickly but this year I made it a priority to really stop and enjoy every last second of it. These photos were taken in San Diego while I was home for Christmas. This was the most comfortable outfit for Christmas yet I felt totally holiday inspired. Faux fur is something that every girl should have in her closet; it’s timeless like real fur. Same goes for sequins; they’re great investments.

I loved playing around in this old school vintage playground. What a cool find, right?

The Edit: Fashion Finds Under $50

FashionFindsUnder$50

 

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 // 7 // 8  // 10

Happy Holidays, friends! I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas with family and loved ones. I spent mine in San Diego in 80 degree weather! I couldn’t believe it, but then again I could, because that’s Souther California for you.  I enjoyed it but I’ve always wanted a white snowy Christmas! Maybe one year. :)

I’ve been searching the internet high and low for some of the best deals for after Christmas. It’s the time of year where retailers literally mark everything down and try to get their season’s product to move as fast as possible. It’s THE best time to buy.

Sole Society Booties: To start, I’ve been eyeing these booties in cobalt blue for a couple months now and haven’t made the purchase. They are now marked down to $40, such a steal. I bought them in blue but they also have them in red and grey.

Lauren Conrad Tulle Maxi Skirt: I wanted this in color, but for $30 I think it’s great in black too. I’m going to add a belt and wear it with a white crew neck t-shirt with a touch of bling around my neck.

Black & White Skirt: This is another amazing find, for only $25 plus 20% off when you sign up on Facebook and share your purchase link! I saw my fellow fashion blogger wearing it a while back and it looks great on. There’s tons more from SheInside that you’ll have to check out while you’re there. Faux Furs are the must-have of the season and this one is only $40. Wear it with black leg gins, boots and a simple t-shirt. If fur is too much, this cobalt blue jacket is another fab find!

Shop the rest of the goodies below and let me know what you end up getting! Have a great day beauties. XOXO

Hi, everyone. Hope you all  had a fantastic weekend. I wanted to share a recent Style Challenge that I’ve done with my blogger babe, Kimberly Luu from According To Kimberly. We both adore our Sole Society shoes and we’ve style them in two different ways. I love what she’s done for the night time look by adding a rocker chic feel. You can see more of her look here.

Screen Shot 2013-12-09 at 4.38.14 PMWhat look do you like best?

What I love about these shoes is that they are super comfortable for heels and add a ton of support.

I’m excited to share that I’ll be posting another style challenge tomorrow! Tis the week of blogger face-offs.

XO

Shoes, Shoes! Designer, Shoes!

Neiman Marcus Last Call Shoes

I was excited to be invited to Neiman Marcus Last Call last week for their designer shoe event (still going on now).  We dream of Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Lanvin Paris, Stuart Weitzman, Jimmy Choo and Yves Saint Laurent, but not all of us can afford monthly Louboutins. Let’s be real. Enter, Neiman Marcus Last Call. I was delighted to see the pretties heels, chicest booties, on trend over-the-knee boots and much, much more. It was a shoe party, really!

The best part was, shoes were marked down to 55% off the original Neiman Marcus prices, plus that day they were offering 40% off. It was shoe heaven!

Thanks to Last Call for providing me with a $100 gift card for me to shop at the Designer Shoe New Arrivals Event. I went over my budget, of course, but left with two perfect paris of Dolce Vitas! I scored some leopard Dolce Vita heels, I’ve been wanting leopard pumps forever. They’re great for adding a touch of complexity to a simple outfit.

Dolce Vitas Leopard Heels

I also purchased a pair of amazing boots by Dolce Vita. They’re perfect for everyday walking/shopping and will be great with a pair of shorts. The shoes together were only $150 – pretty amazing, right? See here to find a Neiman Marcas near you.
