Amazing Coat

So I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the last four posts I’ve been wearing the same coat.  This summer coat is one of the best things I have ever bought.  It doesn’t matter how pajamaee your outfit is it is instant sophistication.  I took pictures with it on and off so that you see the big difference it makes.  I love it!!!
 
The necklace is from Zara, which is a great find because the original ones at OC are like a thousand or, which is not that bad, but I can’t afford it yet.  Shorts are Asos, which I am also obsessed with; I love the oversized shorts trend.  Shirt is American Apparel and shoes are Randa Website. The bracelet I bought at the Tarina Tarantino popup shop.

Dinosaur!

These photos were taken at the Grove, which is my favorite mall.  But for photography ummm not the best place because it is always sooo crowded.  But anyway…
 
The skirt is Emma Cook, I am so in love with it, I have worn it a million times and I am still not tired of it.  Tank top is Forever 21, the shoes are from randa website, I love all of their shoes so much, but the shipping is wayyyy too expensive. coat Asos.
 

Romper

This is a Peter Pilotto romper from the Target line.  When I first saw this romper I fell in love with it, but I didn’t think much about it because I thought it probably was suuuuper expensive.  But one day out of curiosity I decided to look for it and I found out it was the Peter Pilotto for Target collection, which had not come out yet, so I was thrilled.  I started counting down the days until finally that Sunday… I was thirty minutes late and I was not too worried…little did I know.  When I got to Target only thirty minutes after they opened the store EVERYTHING of what I wanted was already sold out.  I started to look for other Targets in desperation and it was not my lucky day.  Eventually I went to this target on La Cienaga that opened pretty recently, so not that many people know about it.  And I did find this one size 6!! way too big, but I got it anyway.  I had it taken in, and I’m still not happy with the way it fits, so next time I’ll try it with a belt I’ll let you know how it goes.

Pajama Yikes

So you know how this little pajama shorts are the trend right now, I went short happy and bought me a few of this pajama shorts (3 to be exact), and I’ve realized I really just don’t like the pajama look.  I bought some nicer shirts, (which I’ll show you later) to match with the shorts to make it look less pajamaee, but no luck.  So here is the first shoot of when I still liked the pajama look. 
 
These pictures were taken in Larchmont Village, previously mentioned in another shoot.  
 
The shorts are Asos, t-shirt H&M, scarf Desigual, bag American Apparel, coat Asos, shoes Target(which are the most comfortable heels I have). Tous ring, and vintage ring.
 
 

Self Portrait

This has been one of my old time favorite shoots and outfits.  The messy hair managed to look cool in the pictures, the skirt and boots make my legs look fabulous (or maybe the gym has a lot more to do with that, lol), and the sunglasses are my old time favorite.  I love sunglasses, but I get a lot of headaches so I have to be very picky with my shades, tightness never matters, even when they are super loose my head hurts.  But when the legs are skinny and just the right amount of loose and tight it hurts a lot less, and this shades did just that-best thing, I bought them on the Venice boardwalk for 10bucks!!! woot woot. 
 
The skirt is Mr. Self Portrait from Styligion, shirt is forever 21, boots urban outfitters, sunglasses no one, lol.
 

Go USA!!!

These pictures were taken at the California Science Center.  My boy friend and I went to look at the Endeavor exhibit.  Even though I am not technically American, I had never felt so much pride for being “American,” it is truly things like this that make this country such an amazing place.  Go USA!!!
So I totally pulled a Carrie Bradshaw and let my bra show, haha.  I don’t care. I like it.  The romper is Zara, shoes vans, bra Urban Outfitters, the earring was a temporary DIY.
 

Silver Lake

These pictures were taken in SILVER LAKE!!! Silver Lake is totally hipster, but it has amazing restaurants, especially vegan, (and no I am not 100% vegan, not even close, but I try to eat mostly vegan), and it also has super cute and awesome boutiques.  Oh and the houses are super cute too.
 
The dress is Peter Pilotto for Target, which fits amazing and it is so comfy and cute.  Boots are BCBG, socks are Old Navy, hoops don’t remember (sorry). Purse is Target.
 

Little Fish

So this is an outfit, which has also revealed a few things to me.  First let’s just start by saying I love this skirt, always have, and always will.  I’ve had it for about ten years, not kidding.  It is an original orginal penguin, not the new stuff they have now, the original original, which is why I won’t ever get rid of it (period) 😉  
But the revelation I had with this shoot is that I am not a little kid, so going for the super cute look is just not flattering, sure it was a cute outfit, but not for a 27 year old woman.  So a way in which I could wear this skirt is maybe with a silk cami and nude heels-remember some times less is better.
 
The skirt is Original Penguin by Munsigwear, flats and white bracelet I got in Morocco, shirt is Forever 21. Necklace and pink bracelet Tarina Tarantino, ring was a gift from when I was like 12.
 

Plumpynuts!

So this little number was another one of those “I was dying to get” outfits.  I bought it as a gift from me to me for my birthday.  I bought the shorts and shirt at Opening Ceremony in a crazy amazing sale!!!  I love Opening Ceremony btw, I wish I could afford everything, but yet again, I’m not sure I would spend 14k on a coat, or some of the ridiculously over priced pieces.  Don’t get me wrong, I see fashion as an art, and the more unique and exclusive you get the more expensive it should be.  Art is unique and when you buy an original painting you know that you’re the only one that has it, so the same is with fashion.  But some times, ummm some times is too much, and if I had the money I rather give it to some kid that could actually truly benefit from it.  But anyway…
 
These pictures where taken at Annenberg Space for Photography in LA.  I love this place, they always have amazing photography exhibits and they are ALWAYS free.  I love it, and they validate parking! lol
 
The shorts and shirt are Plumpynuts from OC, shoes are Gojane, and purse is Target!!! and the ring… Claires lol from way back when.
 

Cuffed Up Next Time

One thing I really like about blogging is that it is helping me get to know my body and style even more.  Many times you look in the mirror and everything seems fine, but then you look at the picture and it is bad news.  I am not talking about being photogenic, it is about little details that we chose to ignore and the cam cam shows you that maybe you shouldn’t.  For example, in this shoot I realized that the sandals I am wearing with the jeans make my legs look extra short, so either I should wear them with heels, or cuff up the pants.  My hair, I always have my hair messy, no fail.  Even when I try to make it nice I always end up putting it in a bun or something because I like it messy, I’ve never been the girly girly girl that has to have everything perfect-not me at all.  But the pictures show me that messy only looks cool in the mirror, so it is another detail I will try to focus on more.
 
I am wearing Forever 21 pants and shirt.  BCBGirl sandals, vintage necklace, the bag is a lucky find I got in Panama, and the jacket is Anthropologie.
