There’s something about Marni that I’ve always loved. It’s the prints. It’s the unexpected silhouettes…like this boxy little jacket from the Marni x Yoox collaboration. It’s something you’d find in your grandmother’s closet in Beverly Hills, but with a cool youthful spin. Somehow these tailored little jackets add a touch of glam to every casual look. I took these quirky pieces out to the grassy fields of the valley of Los Angeles. I’m always dressing these dry fields with splashes of color from my wardrobe. I’m always painting the town. These are the hills I’d ride my bike through as a kid. Where I’d lay out and get a tan. Where I’d ride off in my car after going through the local drive-through. It’s the place where you always dream of escaping…to go somewhere bigger and better. If it weren’t for these boring valley streets did I feel such drive, such motivation, and such courage to get myself out there. To create. To live. To love. I take my slight valley gal accent to every city I end up traveling to with pride. Once a Cali girl, always a Cali girl.
For me, rules are always meant for breaking. Especially when it comes to what I wear. I love metallics, and when spotted this beautiful gold skirt at YOOX, I knew I had to have it. My current rule breakers? Wearing your metallics in the day time. Trust me, not all glitter and shine is meant for those sassy nights out. You know you can find me pairing my party skirt with a classic Jonathan Saunders sweater, and Acne trench coat. All of which I found at YOOX. Their designer selection is absolutely insane and so easy to shop. The great thing about a transitional, out of this world piece like this skirt, is that I can easily switch to a silk tank and neck scarf for night. But for day, I keep it cozy and daring, unafraid of the sun reflecting off this beauty! YOOX’s designer selection is eclectic just like me. Mixing it up is the art of it all. And with that, I can easily break the rules with whatever I feel like wearing. So long as your proportions and colors are just right, it’s so fun to surprise everyone with your wild ensemble that just looks like it was made for you. So for now, I’ll be constantly browsing the designers at YOOX, because with the holidays, I know I can score a killer deal…like these Opening Ceremony booties.
