Wardrobe Favorites

You may have seen this jacket in other posts, as it happens to be my favorite piece in my wardrobe two years running now. It truly is the perfect L.A. jacket. Great construction, beautiful leather & suede, and a perfect fit. I want ¬†one in every color of the rainbow. Except orange… I definitely do not want one in orange. ūüėČ

MyTribeLeatherJacketTMThe jeans are my first pair of Joe’s and I am pleasantly surprised. They have a great fit, along with the perfect length (hard to find when you’re a Shorty McShort Short) and again, I’ve worn them frequently and they hold there shape very well. No saggy knees, no stretched out booty.

And ahhhh those beautiful stiletto heels. Metallic in color and a unique cage style design. They are made by¬†L.A.M.B., Gwen Stefani’s fashion line. I scored these beauties at Nordstrom Rack for less than half the original price. Yesssss!

Uniform Freedom

Yes, I am the weirdo in the bathroom that when you walk in, I’m standing in front of the mirror taking outfit selfies. Of course once you burst in, I quickly lower my phone¬†and turn my body to pretend I wasn’t just taking 20 pictures of myself. LOL! We’ve all been there. We’ve either been that¬†person, or we’ve seen¬†that person.

I take a photo of my outfit every day at work, so here I am being that girl.

…and there you have it. My work uniform is whatever my little fashionista heart desires. I hope to make this¬†a regular installment on my blog, featuring five outfits from recent days. What is your favorite outfit?

Punk Grunge Glamour

When I was in high school, I was soooooo punk rock. Also known as “a poser.”¬†LOL. That’s just the way it goes. Along with going to local punk shows, being rebellious, wearing plaid and Doc Martens, came calling everyone else a poser. It’s quite funny actually.

Really I just enjoyed some classic & more modern punk music, and going to shows to let out some energy in a mosh-pit… ¬†I very much enjoyed the punk style¬†of plaids, leather, spikes, chains, patches, etc. I expressed myself through punk style¬†during my last few years of school and then let it fade away. However I still love the style¬†and I still love those same punk bands I loved years ago. Although I never got into the politics of the punk scene, it didn’t stop me from enjoying bands like the Ramones, Sex Pistols, the Buzzcocks, Dead Kennedys, Vice Squad, the Adicts, Rancid, Operation Ivy, and the Dropkick Murphys.

I was recently selling some clothes at Wasteland when I spotted what appeared to be a sweet ass vintage band t-shirt. I dropped everything I was doing to take a peek at this shirt that had just hit the sales floor……¬†A vintage Dead Kennedy’s t-shirt, AND it smelled good. SCORE! Not only do I adore the dark, eerie and rambunctious sound of the Dead Kennedy’s, but here I found a perfectly softened, old school vintage t-shirt with their political propaganda inked all over it.

Completing my grungy punk style¬†is the same leather bondage belt I rocked about a decade ago, a¬†subtle plaid print on my jeans and of course a flannel knotted around the waist. As you all know, I almost always have to add in some glamour to whatever style I’m rockin, so in comes the teased hair, the shiny accessories and my fringed bag. The diamond shaped bangle is by¬†Vinca, an awesome jewelry company based here in the USA. It is such a cool bracelet, made of laser cut wood!

Not-So-Mellow Yellow.

Having a gloomy day? Why not brighten it up with a splash of yellow?! It’s an uplifting, and bold color that makes the wearer feel bright, cheery, and energetic! Every guy and gal deserves a little yellow in their closet.

I was recently scouring the clearance racks at everyone’s favorite superstore– Target! I was lucky enough to come across this simple, color blocked yellow skirt, on clearance for $8! I couldn’t pass it up! The material is lovely and the skirt is as comfortable as skirts get!

On ¬†this day I was headed to a fashionable friend’s party, so I had to make sure my outfit was on point. After two hours of mixing, matching, and complete outfit changes, I arrived at this perfect combination of color and print.

Not So Secret Garden.

After two years of living in Long Beach, and¬†two years of schooling at California State University, I finally made a visit to the Earl Miller Japanese Garden. It’s a lush, gorgeous sanctuary tucked away on campus. A wonderful area to meditate, nature watch, take photos or just relax with a friend.¬†

Pin Up Style, Baby!

Remember I went to a pinup shoot a while back? (In case you missed it, you can read about it HERE.) I helped style some of the girls, and I got a few sessions of my own in. Of the four different looks we shot, I’ve received the sets from two of the photographers that day. They came out so great and I am one lucky girl getting to participate in the day’s festivities.

This set was shot by professional photographer, Isaac Suttell. Please see Isaac’s website for more of his phenomenal work!


Isaac’s photos came out absolutely stunning and I couldn’t be more honored to have had him shoot me. On a personal note, I’m not one for being tan, however this particular set of photos inspires me to get a little more sun this summer! Hehehee. Although I must say, Isaac captured me as a porcelain doll. Thank you Isaac!
