i know you've all heard the amazing news that topshop is now available at nordstrom. fml, they're just making it easier for me to spend all my moniesssss... with that being SAID. here are my must MUST haves from there:

1. studded camo jacket $116, 2. studded faux leather biker jacket $130
Topshop Studded Camo Jacket 116-horz

3. moto stripe skinny jeans $80, 4. studded denim hotshorts $70
Topshop Moto 'Leigh' Stripe Skinny Jeans 80-horz

SO, ok.. you like?! because i do! lol
1. collette by collette binnigan sweater $194
2. MOTO skinny jeans $76
3. proenza schouler ps11 clutch $1332
4. tory burch reva leopard flats $195

a typical go-to outfit for me. pick and choose your colors so you're not dull and boring. after all "...it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.” right? can't argue with ms. monroe.

i would totally wear this anywhere.. movies, shopping, market, dinner.. whateves. it's a really good cas (casual) outfit and i die for the ps11. well i'd die for the tb leopard reva's too... but ok, enough of that. happy fashion tip friday!

what's your take on the floral pants trend??

how celebs are rocking it:
my fashion go-to's: olivia palermo, jessica alba & miranda kerr

floral pants are a cute trend to try but it's not something i'll love forever. they add a nice twist to the everyday leggings or jeans so having a pair in your closet isn't a bad investment. if you don't want to spend a lot on a trend you're not sure you'll love, get a pair of floral leggings since it'll be cheaper. SO, for me, i say YAY.

YES!! it's almost finally time for fall!! bring out the scarves, sweaters and LAYERS! this summer has been a blast but it's also given me a glimpse of what hell probably feels like.

so, here are some picks of my must-haves this fall:

1. parker blue eternity scarf $195
2. yves saint laurent YSL Cabas Chyc Satchel $2150 [btw, i DIE for this bag...]
3. charles philip leopard loafer $185
4. rag & bone terry top $195
5. brandy melville knit sweater $56
6. j brand denim $289
7. givenchy skinny jeans $594

i will always need my knitted sweaters and eternity scarves.. i think they are the easiest to throw on and wear out. one thing about me: i am by far the laziest person ever. so if you notice, effortless and comfortable are usually my go-to's when it comes to my fashion and style picks. ok, done with that randomness.

what are some of YOUR fall must-haves??

FNO @ Fashion Island

Monday, September 10, 2012


thanks to everyone for their input on which outfit to wear for FNO! i went with the UNIF floral dress and decided to add a spiked denim jacket to it in case it got cold or something. plus, i think a denim jacket makes girlie outfits look just a little bit more edgy and casual.
