Save the Date

As most of you know, I intern for Katy Rodriguez at Resurrection Melrose. This saturday, May 2nd (my god, it's already May!) we are digging through the archives and selling some sweet threads from Katy's past collection. If you like the clothes I used for this photo shoot so you should definitely come on over and pick up a piece or two.

Night at the Museum - Pt. 2

So I was feeling a little off yesterday, my sleeping patterns have been weird the last couple of days but I finally mustered up the strength to finish those essays that have been pilling up then went to the LACMA with Ivette to work on a project for Art History. The museum is currently in transition replacing the Art of Two Germany's with Pompeii and a couple others, but even though alot of wings were sectioned off we got to see a lot of cool  stuff. 

I think I want to go back tomorrow after work. So much to see!

Bag it

I recently wrote a style piece for Substance Magazine about the style essentials, and everything a woman should have in her wardrobe year-round. One of which, is the frame bag. As the piece was being edited, I found the same question asked several times,  'What is a frame bag?' Well chances are you knew what it was, just not the name for it. It's typically a structured bag with a metal frame closure. Avoid something trendy and get yourself one of these babies, a classic that wont fade with the trends.

Good Enough to Eat

Keeping in the spirit of warm weather and the indulgences that come with, comes of this sweet series of photographs from conceptual artist  Massimo Gammacurta, of famous fashion house logos - turned lollipops. Looking for the perfect something to go with your new Louboutin pumps? try the Gucci in grape :)

(Thanks Andrea for the heads up. What would I do without you?)

Madonna, Our Lady of Pop





Somethings are simply timeless. Take for instance the trench coat, or the black stilleto, or well, Madonna. Whether you like Madonna or not, it's hard to imagine her ever really going away.

I came across these images from a 1995 Vogue shoot, shot by Steven Meisel. I love the last one!

Make it New

About a week ago (Easter Sunday), Stephanie, Matt, and I finally made our way down to the famous Rose Bowl flea market. It was a treasure trove of everything vintage, from designer clothing, to furniture. It also housed some vendors who make their own things, like Courtney Prince for example, creator of Doloris Petunia, a collection of beautiful handmade accessories. Upon seeing some of her pieces, I knew they were worth mention. She explained to me how each piece is unique because of the materials used to craft them, for example, the necklace pictured on the left may be made out of a broken pocket watch, and old brooch. You could just sit and gaze at these necklaces for a while because they are all uniquely crafted, and in a way, tell their own story. After all, everythings better with a little sentimental value, and Doloris Petunia already provides that for you.

Cover Girl

For those of you who don't know, Running in Heels is a reality show which depicts the journey of three interns at Marie Claire magazine, which airs on the Style Network. If I had a guilty pleasure this would definitely be it. The show was slightly cheesy, and the girls were kind of ridiculous. You never know when they are fighting, or when they are friends, but still I found myself tuning in every sunday to watch (maybe feeling like I could somehow relate?) 

Tonight's season finale ended with one lucky girl landing a position at MC offered by the editor in chief herself. I won't say who it was incase you haven't been following (although I'm not sure why you would start now) but I must say Talita is my favorite :]

On Campus - A Little Substance

On the Set: Substance Magazine




So last night we finally shot the fashion photo feature for Substance Magazine. I have to say it was such a great experience, we had such an awesome team and I'm itching to see the final product. You, however, will have to wait to pick up the Spring issue of Substance (and trust me, It'll be well worth it) :]

High Voltage

H&M - Notorious for great fashion at a great price, is also responsible for bringing us some designer collaborations at a pretty great price as well. With capsule collections designed by fashion legends such as Karl Lagerfeld, Roberto Cavalli, and most recently, Comme de Garcons. 

This summer H&M brings us a capsule collection designed by Matthew Williamson. Known for his bold prints, geometric shapes, and electrifying colors, this collection will be true to his name. With bight blue tuxedo jackets and sequined kimono dresses, H&M has once again made luxury accessible.

You Are What You Love

So what happens when good style and great music take center-stage? A most unforgettable of evenings.

Once front-woman of the hit band Rilo Kiley, singer/songwriter Jenny Lewis graced Pomona with her presence last night at The Glass House. Noted for her stylish stage presence and love for vintage fashion, Jenny took the stage wearing high waisted tweed boy shorts with a matching blazer, and green plaid vest. Her sweet redish brown locks cascading from her wide brimmed fedora onto the lapel of her jacket. Although it wasn't Jenny's understadedly chic outfit that stole the show last night, as once she started singing everything else seemed to sort of melt away.

Child actress-turned singer, Jenny Lewis appeared in tons of movies including Troop Beverly Hills, and Pleasentville (and most recently as the assistant director to Bolt). In 1998 she and her friends formed the indie rock group Rilo Kiley. Since, she has contributed vocals to The Postal Service, and took off her solo career with the album Rabbit Fur Coat in 2006.

In 2008 she released her second solo album Acid Tounge and is currently on tour.

I was FINALY able to see her live last night, and my god does that woman have talent. She is one of my favorite artist and I truley consider her to be one of the last great lyricist. You know, when music actually had substance and wasn't just formulated for chart-topping-club-mega-hits?

If you haven't listened to her yet, WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU WAITING FOR!

I Love You, Man

So it seems as though Bromance is the new Black, with the theme popping up from reality shows to hit movies. Here is a fine example of a playfully illustrated Bromance from a GQ style UK editorial, Cool School. After looking through these fun (and stylish) pictures, I know I'd like to be friends with these guys.

Per Gioco

If you know anything about me, you'll know about my deep passion for fashion editorials. Since that is, after all, one of the many things I want to end up doing in my life. So here is another one that is really inspiring to me. It feels like geek chic in a very fantastic, elementary, sort of way.
