All Black Everything.

In light of NYFW coming up soon, I'm anticipating the drama of the runway fashion in sheer excitement!

And even though we're in the throes of summer weather here in the sweltering heat, I'm going to give homage to how beautiful black on black can be.

Sweat it out with me would ya? 

So classic and chic

I still very much want that Hermes cuff

Simple patent black

Bottega Veneta 

Alexander McQueen

The Models

Are you excited too??
I'll be sure to keep you updated on the best shows.

Take the adventure friends.

Have a wonderful Thursday!

Red Elegance.

Fall trends are peeking out everywhere and I have latched onto one that is so feminine and beautiful...

Marchesa Fall 2012

Gah!
The details are just too pretty!



And it looks just as good in green...
Valentino


Just something dreamy and whimsical for us to smile about today.


Have a wonderful day friends!

The Weekend.

Hi friends!
It's Monday, and I'm excited to be back at work and I'm grateful for a wonderful weekend with loved ones.

How was your weekend?

Saturday, I attended a wedding in Palos Verdes that was so sweet.
Congratulations to Sandra & Chris!

My little sister & I

I tend to struggle with wedding-appropriate dresses so I was excited to come across this neon-floral number with fun shoulders to keep it from being just another boring dress.

Outtakes with friends & sisters:

Sister love.


All in all, the night was a great success!
The bride and groom looked happy and in love... and my sister and I fell asleep to a Del Taco induced coma. 
Saturday night for ya!

Then Sunday rolls around for some church, good eats and of course, pre-Fall shopping...
It was hot to put it mildly.
And to beat the heat these days, it takes very very simplistic clothing with plenty of breathing room to make your day tolerable outdoors.

This is my "are we done yet?" face

{Heels: Jeffrey Campbell}
I don't care about level of comfort at this point.
If Jeffrey Campbell continues to put out fabulous shoes like this, I will wear them.

{Ring: ASOS}

And that's the weekend wrap up!

I'll leave you with a question to ask yourself each morning:

Have a great day friends!

It's Friday.

Five of my favorite things this Friday:

With Fall (and Fall runway shows!) right around the corner, I'm getting antsy and want to pull out all my boots and coats already.
Too soon?

1.
This picture makes me want to hunt for the perfect white coat.
With the white coats, it's important to look for what kind of buttons come attached.

2.
Elizabeth & James booties of my dreams

3.
Dreamy Tom Brady by Carine Roitfeld for VMAN
...
Yeah. 
You're welcome.

4.
A love letter to my loves.

5.
The perfect reading chair with an abundance of sunlight~

I hope you have a beautiful weekend friends!
I'll be attending a friend's wedding in beautiful Palos Verdes and doing some pre-Fall shopping.
I can't wait!

Blossoming.

This weekend, I was leaving my place and had to tread through piles of leaves already.
It dawned on me that Fall is right around the corner.

We are climate-confused (as Annabelle always says) down here in LA, so I thought hey, why not gush about the beauty of spring as I'm currently obsessed with everything with flowers lately... 

Dolce & Gabanna

I love this.

Balmain

Valentino

Alexander McQueen

And although this isn't necessarily flowers, I do love the petal texture to this Chanel runway top
But I may be biased as I love nearly everything with leather shorts.

And if that weren't bad enough, my want and love for new and old bags and shoes have me aching for a weekend shopping spree...
Miu Miu's glittery Mary Jane's

A floppy black YSL bag.
Is there such a thing as 'too many black bags'? 
I think not!

Neon.
Nope.
Still not over it.

Vibrant Givenchy red clutch and a high on my priority list YSL chain link bracelet

 I am so glad to share that my life will finally stop moving at warp speed and keeping me from my blog, and all will resume as normal.

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
My friends and I ended our summer nights with a bang this past weekend...
{Sisters, friends & yours truly on the right}

With so many exciting things ahead... I hope you have a fantastic and productive week!

Dreamy.


Once in a while, a shoe will come along and completely capture my heart.
DSquared... how come you toy with my emotions so? 


For the past couple weeks, I've been watching Sex in the City just because.
I have also been wearing heels all week.
Coincidence?
I think not.

Be inspired.
I hope you're all enjoying your Thursday.
The weekend is right around the corner...
