Tell me where the light is

For Christmas, BF gifted me with some new wardrobe pieces that will be perfect for the colder climate we’ll soon be living in. Some were on the wishlist, some were items I’d never even think to buy myself, but all were perfect additions to my closet. I think I’m going to let him pick out...
L.A. Loves: Downtown Shops

L.A. Loves: Downtown Shops

Putting together this list made me realize I don’t do much downtown shopping for clothes. So instead here is a general list of stores with one extra, because you can never have enough places to shop at. And I just finished shopping for Christmas gifts at some of these stores today, so hope this helps...
F21 Fun

F21 Fun

A little late to the party with this one. (Pun!) It’s been a couple of years since I closed down my fashion-related blog, so it was cool to be included among the stylish L.A. bloggerati at last week’s Forever 21 party for the Brian Lichtenberg collection. All thanks to Fashion Intel, one of the nicest...
Shop L.A. - Trina Turk Outlet

Shop L.A. – Trina Turk Outlet

If you and your mother love discount shopping as much as my mom and I do, consider a trip to the Trina Turk outlet in Alhambra for some Mother’s Day shopping.¬†Upon a recent tweet from RecessionistaLA, I was reminded of the fact that a designer outlet resides in the good ol’ SGV, and I still...
Shop L.A.: Unique LA

Shop L.A.: Unique LA

Lots of walking for me this weekend: to and from Unique LA on Saturday, which is basically across town, and then walking the whole 13th floor of the California Mart to browse the 200+ vendors on both days. Though Unique LA’s been around for a couple of shows now, this is my first time attending...
Shop L.A.: Paperworks Lab

Shop L.A.: Paperworks Lab

It’s been awhile since I featured a local store to blog about. I actually haven’t been shopping in a couple of months. (I know right.) If your walls are looking kinda bare, or need a gift for the artsy fart in your life, check out the prints from Paperworks Lab. The online store features L.A....
Dear Alice

Dear Alice

Don’t laugh. I watched the midnight showing of New Moon at L.A. Live‘s new Regal Theatre on Thursday alongside a bunch of college girls*. (Though to my credit they still think I’m one of them.) The Regal is three floors of HUGE, but disappointingly boring to look at. Now really, don’t laugh. On Friday, I...
You know you love me, XOXO

You know you love me, XOXO

BF and I dressed up as Blair & Chuck for Halloween. Probably the cheapest costume ever, as most of the pieces were already in our closet – shocker, I know. Me: AE 77kids velvet blazer; F21 headband, shirt, and belt; Issa Rocks skirt; French Toast cross tie; Target girls tights; Coach bag; Nine West mary...

Wild Things: Space 15 Twenty

Wild Things: Space 15 Twenty

What a wild, wild weekend. In anticipation for the movie “Where the Wild Things Are“, Space 15 Twenty was transformed into a woodsy wonderland. Featured were monster costumes created by¬†Christian Joy (yes, the maker of Karen O’s stage garb) How cute is this Urban Renewal skirt?? I frequently knitted and crocheted in my college years,...
Shop L.A.: Confederacy

Shop L.A.: Confederacy

Photo from Refinery29 Not really a shop I can afford to spend what little money I have at, but I still love Confederacy for bringing beautiful clothes to men and women on the Eastside. It’s housed in an old brick building with a 1940′s Americana theme and phone booth dressing rooms. Hell, even their Rag...
L.A. Chic, Spanish Fashion

L.A. Chic, Spanish Fashion

Dress Code: L.A. Chic, one of the requirements for Zara’s Opening Party last night in Hollywood, and it’s safe to say that everyone brought it. Not one ironic hipster getup in sight. This is the sixth Los Angeles location for the Spanish fast fashion chain and the closest to downtown (and only a Metro Red...
