Orange Is the New Orange!

Orange Is the New Orange!<br>Coco Chanel said, “I don’t do fashion, I am fashion.” Taking it a step further in the spirit of October’s Halloween, I’m not one to DO dress up in costume one day a year when I AM dressed up each day. So, for Halloween, I’d rather forgo the slutty bee costumes in favor of an elegant orange gown. All dress, no costume. This beautiful, <b>layered</b> collar gown is from my favorite boutique on Abbot Kinney, @Flannel_au. It can scream Halloween Masquerade Ball or even be worn by …

Burnin It Down! Sometimes, the only way to create something truly original is to start from scratch

Burnin It Down!<br>Sometimes, the only way to create something truly original is to start from scratch. As Michelangelo described the creation of David, “I saw an angel in the marble and I just chiseled ‘til I set him free.” Today’s #ootd is black upon black upon black of <b>layered</b><p>sensual fabrics: fur upon silk upon lace. When wearing monochromatic color, especially an all black ensemble, the fashion key is to <b>layer it up</b> with contrasting textures and feels. Burnin it down to bare skin from the outside …

Sunflower Power!

Sunflower Power!<br>“People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.” - Unknown I haven’t known @SunnyWalters for very long, but I have spent at least 45 minutes to 150 minutes a week listening to her soulful advice and watching her move for the past two years. Needless to say, her impact on me in my darkest moments has been a saving grace and I expect her lessons to last my lifetime. She’s not dying. Just moving away, but I will truly miss her daily sunshine. Today’s #ootd is …

Pearl of Wisdom!

Pearl of Wisdom!<br>“You must change in order to survive.” - Pearl Bailey Today’s #ootd is inspired by @ShayJewelry’s unique spike based pearl earrings. Pearls remind me that a grain of sand under extreme pressure can become a beautiful pearl. In other words, even difficult change can bring about a beautiful result. So do not fear change. I <b>layered it up</b> with a form fitting @majeusa knit peach dress and @angl cutout heels that I found at a great price point. This entire ensemble is subtle and yet …

Ties That Bind!

Ties That Bind!<br>I’ve given a lot of thought to the concepts of possession and freedom lately - Ownership and independence - - Having something and then giving it away. Each one is a side of a coin to the other. I think it’s important in life to try each. Each serves us something up it seems, but also requires a sacrifice of the other. Each impacts and is tied to our identity in a way. As my identity has changed over the years and is changing now, I’m grateful to know the deeper meanings of each …

Staying Cool!

Staying Cool!<br>It’s been HOT in #SantaMonica! I’m not one for complaining, but my A/C is on the fritz too! So, today’s #ootd is cool-lots culottes inspired. Actually, I’ve been on the hunt for a great pair of culotte trousers - this season’s hottest trend. I was thrilled to find this great pair at @anthropologie. I layered them up with all kinds of textured accessories: a tweed hat, feather necklace and quilted sweater jacket. The blouse beneath is a shear floral, which is just light enough for …

Love What You Do!

Love What You Do!<br>When I recently visited one of my favorite California style boutiques, I was reminded of the words to one of my favorite new songs, It’s Not Right For You by The Scripts. They sing, “In the end, you’ve got one life to love what you do.” I know when I’m layered head to toe in @maliamillsnyc I feel blessed to do what I do completely devoted to my career in fashion. Malia Mills designs are ultra light weight dresses which are ideal for Santa Monica’s heat wave, yet have a sexy …

Under Budget! Like a Bo$$, finding a funky #ootd that fits into anyone’s budget is a major fashion find

<b>Under Budget!</b><br>Like a Bo$$, finding a funky #ootd that fits into anyone’s budget is a major fashion find. Today’s ensemble is from @zarausa so it meets the criteria. More importantly though is that it’s crazy cool with <i>layers</i> of funky pieces that are on trend. It’s a perfect #ootd for anyone going back to campus. My favorite piece is the faux leather gaucho pants, which I paired with a “five second rule” t-shirt that shoes a cutie eating her pizza from the floor. No one here is judging that. 😉

If You Want Me, Just Whistle! “If you want me just whistle

<b>If You Want Me, Just Whistle!</b><br>“If you want me just whistle. You know how to whistle, don’t you Steve? Just put your lips together and blow.” - Lauren Bacall<p>Today’s #ootd is inspired by the recently departed Lauren Bacall. Bacall epitomized the independent, unapologetic woman who owned her sex appeal and never apologized for it. She had <b>layers</b> of confidence. She was light years ahead of her day, not only in her actions, but in her style as well. What Bacall knew that so many of us take years to …

<b>Clean Bandit!</b><br>Today’s #ootd is inspired by Clean Bandit’s song “No Place I’d Rather Be” because today, as I appreciate my blessed life and feel entirely comfortable in my new citizensofhumanity jeans (that feel more like sweat pants) there really is no place I’d rather be. I spent the day at one of my favorite boutiques, @marketla in Brentwood, California style shopping for an upcoming @youtube episodes for @santamonicaplace. This one will be featured in a Back(pack) to School episode that I get …

Thorned Rose! @BrettMichaels sings, “Every rose has it’s thorn

<b>Thorned Rose!</b><br>@BrettMichaels sings, “Every rose has it’s thorn.” I suppose that’s true, but really, why focus on the thorns when the rose blooms so beautifully? In every situation or relationship (or even outfit) we have the opportunity to see all the good and all the bad. The choice is ours - all the time. I try my darnedest, to the point of being accused of naïveté, to focus on the good…in people, in circumstances, even in outfits. It’s not always an easy task, but frankly, every thorn has …

Guilty Pleasure! A wise soul once told me that the key to overcoming a Guilty Pleasure is to let go of the guilt

<b>Guilty Pleasure!</b><br>A wise soul once told me that the key to overcoming a Guilty Pleasure is to let go of the guilt. Easier said than done, but focusing more on the pleasure than the guilt may be a first step. Today’s #ootd is a little guilty for indulging in this radical merlot fringe jacket from @freepeople, but surprisingly, the pleasure of wearing it outweighed the associated guilt. I layered it on top of a girly flower maxi and accented with <i>layers</i> of bold gold and black spikes. The ear cuff is …
