On the first day the temperature hit below 80, I immediately pulled out my boots and cardigans. We’ve been getting a few cold days here and there but its still mainly in the high 80’s here in Las Vegas. I don’t care though, I’m going to wear my boots, cardigans, and all my other fall pieces now even if it means sitting  in my living room blasting the A/C.  O

On another note, how nice is this double strap, gray satchel? It’s a Givenchy antigona dupe! It comes with a detachable cross body strap, just like the Givenchy version, except this one is made of vegan leather. Since switching to a vegan diet, I’ve also started switching all my shoes, handbags, and accessories to cruelty-free versions. I especially love finding vegan versions of popular designer handbags. If you know of any, leave your suggestions in the comments below. 🙂

Black and Nude

mesh-2 mesh-3 mesh-4 mesh-5 mesh-6 mesh-1I’m currently completely obsessed with these decorative bralettes from Free People, they are so gorgeous! I typically pin a low cut top like this so it doesn’t accidentally fall open. But having a decorative bralette underneath just slightly peaking out is so fun. They’re so delicate and beautiful. I definitely like this option better than pinning the shirt because pinning the soft delicate material leaves a small mark, which is no good. Also, how awesome are these Gucci sandals? I can’t believe I haven’t photographed them sooner. They go with literally everything.

Plaid was something I’d been, for the longest time, reluctant to wear. The pattern can be intimidating but it’s actually really easy to wear. Plaid would exclusively remind me of punk rock chicks or Catholic school uniforms. Since I am neither, I stayed away form these looks thinking they weren’t my style. The trick, however, is to take a strong element from a look—like the ones below, for example— and interpret it your own way so that you feel comfortable and like yourself. Plaid overload works for Gwen because she’s the front woman of a rock band, and she’s…well, Gwen Stefani: fashion icon—duh.

Unless you’re Gwen Stefani, wearing plaid this way for everyday can be tricky.

Since I am most definitely not the front woman of a rock band (I do all of my singing in the shower—fun fact!), I paired my Kut from the Kloth plaid pants with a black ribbed tank from James Perse to keep it casual, and a cashmere blend wrap from DKNY. The drapey cashmere wrap adds a touch of luxe but keeps the overall look of the outfit effortlessly casual. Simple black sandals complete the look.

The past few days have just flown by! New projects, furniture shopping, and work have me feeling dizzy! While it’s exhausting me to pieces, it’s also quite exciting. I can’t wait to share some fun new things I’m working on from some of my favorite Etsy shops, it’s going to be so good! We shot these images this past Saturday and I wasn’t able to get them up until now because I’ve been planning and shopping for the house. I’m hosting Thanksgiving this year so I have one month to fill my new house with furniture, decorate it, and tackle the ever increasing chaotic mess that is my home office; all while maintaining my current work flow. The anxiety is kicking in just thinking about it. Getting back to these images, it was late in the day when we decided to shoot these. We were so stretched for time but were able to get a bit of light as the sun was setting. That’s why the first image looks so different from the rest. Even though we were so pressed for time, I just had to shoot these shoes. I found them on Poshmark. They’re by Yves Saint Laurent, one of my favorite designers. These little gems are my new obsession and I can’t wait to style them again.

LEOPARDO

Los últimos días han volado! Nuevos proyectos, comprando muebles, y el trabajo me tienen mareada! A pesar de que me está agotando tanto, es también muy emocionante. No puedo esperar para compartir algunas cosas nuevas divertidas en cuales estoy trabajando. Son cosas que vienen de algunas de mis tiendas favoritas de Etsy, les van a encantar! Capturamos estas imágenes el pasado sábado y  no via sido capaz de publicarlas hasta ahora porque he estado planeando y comprando cosas para la casa. Este año, yo so el anfitrión del dia de Acción de Gracias, así que tengo un mes para llenar mi nueva casa con muebles, decorar, y poner en orden el desastre que crece cada dia en mi oficina. Aparte de todo eso tengo que mentener mi flujo de trabajo actual. Me da ansiedad en sólo pensar en ello. Volviendo a estas imágenes, era tarde en el día cuando decidimos fotografiar este atuendo. Estábamos muy cortos de tiempo, pero pudimos conseguir un poco de luz un poco antes de que el sol se fue. Es por eso que la primera imagen se ve tan diferente del resto. A pesar de que estábamos tan cortos con el tiempo, tenía que fotografiar estos zapatos. Los encontré en Poshmark. Son de Yves Saint Laurent, uno de mis diseñadores favoritos. Estas zapatillas son mi nueva obsesión y no puedo esperar para fotografiar las de nuevo.

 

 

CALVIN KLEIN BUCKET BAG

calvin-klein-bucket-bag-4 calvin-klein-bucket-bag-2 calvin-klein-bucket-bag-6 calvin-klein-bucket-bag-5calvin-klein-bucket-bag-3I’ve had this gorgeous Calvin Klein bucket bag for a while now and was anxiously waiting to photograph it. My sister was happy to play photographer for the day and we got these great shots. I love the texture of this purse. It’s made of saffiano leather which is a pressed leather with a crosshatch pattern. The texture almost feels like plastic making this purse virtually stain resistant. It’s easy to clean and keeps its gorgeous shape perfectly when stored properly.

He tenido esta hermosa bolsa, estilo cubeta, de Calvin Klein por un tiempo y estaba esperando ansiosamente para fotografiarla. Mi hermana estaba feliz de actuar como fotógrafo por el día y creamos estas bellas fotografías. Me encanta la textura de este bolso. Está hecho de cuero “saffiano” que es un cuero prensado con un patrón cuadriculado. La textura casi se siente como plástico que hace este bolso virtualmente resistente a las manchas. Es fácil de limpiar y mantiene su magnífica forma perfectamente cuando se almacena apropiadamente.

While I was looking for something a bit different, I adored this shirt as soon as I put it on. It’s A-line through the body with a scoop neck and has extra long sleeves. It’s also ridiculously lightweight and soft because its made of Japanese cotton. You’ll want to sleep in it and never take it off, don’t say I didn’t warn you. It’s perfection.

I’m yearning for lightness and simplicity of a Springtime wardrobe. On this particular sunny day it was a perfect 78 degrees. The sun was shinning and not a cloud was in sight. We’re lucky here in Las Vegas, on these rare warm winter days we get to have spring a little early. James Perse top, vintage white leather skirt, Steve Madden pumps & Forever 21 jewelry.
