A Holiday Look I Love

Here are a few images of me for Calista Holiday 2010. Shot in New York over the summer and photographed by Erika Hokanson. This shoot has inspired me to sport silk button-ups, velvet pants, and lace frocks this holiday season. A little fur thrown in and I’m set! As for makeup, I love what the makeup artist did. A smoky eye with just a little gold shimmer in the inner corners, and of course a huge red pout. Definitely a fierce holiday look that is bound to make a statement. Kinda releases my inner rockstar ya know? Happy holidays tooo youuuuuuuuu my pretties!

For the Moody

I’m currently tucked under my covers, laptop on lap, browsing through the giant load of photos packed into an folder that desperately needs to be saved on a disc or something before my computer explodes. Here are my picks for the day. I cannot get enough of these images. A mix of moody, complicated, real, beautiful, raw photos. Feast your eyes on this honeybunches!

Daria’s home. Pamela’s locks. Serge and Jane. Lara Stone. Biker babe. Sparkles. Freedom. Jane Goodall. Simplicity at it’s best. Top hats. A barefaced Dree. The not so perfect perfect side braid.

Heavy Knit

(Zara sweater, Vintage scarf, Rich & Skinny jeans)

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone got to spend the day with their loved ones and eat lots of good food! This year has been so crazy and amazing. So many wonderful things have happened that I never thought I’d be given the opportunity to do. I have so much to be thankful for. I want to give a special thanks to all of my readers. You guys are the best, and have really encouraged me to continue this blog. It makes me really enjoy doing it, so thank you!

I actually didn’t end up feeling too well on Thanksgiving, got some kinda bug in my tummy! I have nooo idea what it was! But after having some tea, I felt so much better. The weather is still freezing and the wind just makes the cold that much more intense. I quickly stepped outside to take a few snapshots of my look. Nothing beats a heavy wool knit and a chunky vintage scarf at the moment. I love dark browns and blues together. And with this weather, I find myself living in skinny jeans! The thought of throwing on a minidress this holiday season brings chills up and down my spine. This pair from Rich & Skinny are an incredible “jegging” style with side ankle zips. Perfect for curling up on the couch watching movies! Just a really simple and casual look for a holiday weekend with my family. This week I saw “Love and other Drugs” and it was amazing! Jake Gyllenhaal, I LOVE YOU. I’m a sucker for those puppy dog eyes!

Oh and here I am in Aneka Yess! magazine of Indonesia! Thanks for the feature! xoxo

Have a fantastic rest of your week! Stay warm!

I live in an older Victorian home here in SoCal and it is always soooo chilly. Envious of those w/ extremely cozy homes lol! Even around the house, I’m bundled in clothes. Let’s just say I’ve got a wool throw wrapped around my legs, grandpa style, while typing this. But thank goodness for all things shearling. I love how the aviator looks is back. I’ve been seeing them everywhere! From runways to editorials to the streets. I received this one from Storets and it is so snug and warm! It even gives off an awesome icankickyourass kinda look. Casual and chic with a striped top and my favorite Hudson skinny jeans. Not bad eh?

Are ya’ll ready for Thanksgiving? I’m stoked! We’re doing it a bit differently this time. We’ve nixed boring ol’ turkey so there will be tamales, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry pie, you name it, cooking in my house and I can hardly wait. Things have finally calmed down for me, giving me more time at home for the rest of this week! Friends and family are in town as well. It’s refreshing to see some old faces. Awkward moments due to major time gaps are just inevitable. But who cares? Make the best of your holiday weekend! xoxo

inspirAAtiooonnn. enjoy.
