Hi there! 

I hope everyone is surviving the long month of January. I have been traveling for work and can’t wait to get back to LA for a brief time before being back on the road!

This look is so much fun to wear to be comfy and cozy in velvet but still dressed up! The dress/tunic is Free People with a Zara turtleneck and leggings below, my Gucci belt and Rebecca Minkoff velvet pink purse which was a recent find at the Saks Outlet! I also added my blue Nine West oldie but goodie (last year for Christmas I got them) velvet boots. I love playing with layers and texture to keep warm when I’m not in LA. 

Stay warm and cozy:)

Hi there! 

I hope you had a fantastic Christmas if you celebrate it! I loved being back on the East Coast visiting family in Connecticut and friends in NYC. I’m now back on the West Coast and in that lull between Christmas and New Years when you don’t know what day it is! But one thing is for sure: you can still sparkle.

I wore this look in CT for Church and it’s so much fun to throw on some metallics at this time of year, but not just on this time of year. I’m wearing an oldie but goodie Zara pleated metallic skirt (they are still avail not just in Zara but I’ve seen versions at H&M, JCrew Banana Republic and more) with a Zara Chanel-esque tweed metallic moto jacket and JCrew ruffle sleeveless white blouse. My brown riding boots are Cole Haan and my pink velvet chain strap bow purse was a recent score from the Saks 5th Ave outlet! It’s by Rebecca Minkoff

Shine on, guys!
