Cold and gloomy weather can make this girl feel downright dreary, but winter days are slightly brighter in this stunning overcoat. Double-breasted lapels, padded shoulders and 100% cashmere—isn’t she just darling! With such an elegant structure, she can be worn over a night out with the girls, or over a pair of Levi’s and a white boyfriend tee while running errands during the day. For my outfit, I went with the classic black and white, with a pop of color on my handbag. Words can’t describe how much I adore this handbag. My philosophy: If I’m going to splurge on a purse, it should be anything but boring! Its shape is so modern yet classic. I love the playful color-blocking going on. Cream and orange pair beautifully, with contrasting black accents to make a statement. Looks so chic with super pointy white pumps! Enjoy your weekend, and thanks so much for reading!

Hi, everyone! I hope your weekend is off to a great start!

Sometimes when dressing up, I ditch the dress and opt for a menswear-inspired look. I paired this structured vest with extra long wide-leg pants, and offset the masculinity with a lacy black bralette and high heel femininity. I love how the vest is cut and how it accentuates my shoulders. I also posted one of my favorite menswear looks this year worn by the fabulous Nicole Richie. Have an wonderful weekend, and thank you so much for reading!

Hello, frenz! I hope your holidays were as cheerful as mine! I went to a few holiday parties and I’ve finally recovered from eating everything in sight. Now I’m packing for our New Year’s trip to Lake Tahoe. Weeeee!

I picked up this sweater at a rock show in San Francisco when my Belle Noire friends opened for I the Mighty – such an awesome show! I love buying band tees (or sweaters!) to kind of relive the night, and to support the artists, of course! Rock bands have the most creative t-shirt designs compared to other musicians, in my opinion. I thought this sweater was dope. When I was 7 or 8-years-old, I had a similar crew neck sweatshirt from Disneyland sans the scariness, so it was only right for me to rock this piece.  I probably wouldn’t wear this sweatshirt in Disneyland, wouldn’t want to take anything away from Mr. Mouse, himself haha. Though, it’s pretty handy as an ice breaker. Check out these bands in the links below! Happy New Year, everyone!!
