Winter Is A-Coming.

November 11, 2010

It’s that time a year when you wake up in the morning and think, “what’s the weather going to be like?” Especially LA weather can be so unpredictable — 80 degrees one day then 50 degrees the next. Which is why I always keep a jacket on hand when I go to work. You never know what the office weather will be. And let’s be clear — I don’t take a JACKET… just a light coat that will keep me warm, yet not be too bulky or make everyone think I’m about to leave for the day. If you don’t have a work-type jacket, don’t fret. Head to J-Crew! Here are some of my favs:

1. Tweed Harriet Blazer: Sophisticated, put-together and can be work to work or even for a night on the town. Need I say more?

2. Double-drape Justine Jacket: This one is a little less work-looking and more trendy. Chic and very flattering due to the cut, this coat is a winner at work or anywhere you get cold!

3. Merino Necklace Cardigan: For all of you who just want to go cas’ and cashmere… then this one’s for you. Simple and super comfy, with just a touch of sass. Perfect for work and even dinner with your parents… or dinner with a date!

Light Sweaters Made For California Winters

December 11, 2009

With the beautiful California weather, you really don’t need to wear anything heavier than a light sweater or coat. And one of the advantages of living by the beaches out here are having all the cool surf stores! Nope, I’m not a surfer and to disprove the myth that surfer brands only sell surfer looking stuff, I’ve picked out some of the cutest light-California-sweaters perfect for the non surfer. These can all be found at my favorite surf store, Becker’s Surf.

1. Hurley Winchester Plaid Jacket

Though this jacket looks thick, it’s actually no thicker than a regular hoodie material. I know because I’m wearing it now. The hood is removable as well. (This link is from Buckle, but I got mine at Becker’s Surf.. for cheaper!)

2. Element Institute Sweater

I love this sweater so much because of its lightweight material and the asymmetrical closure on the front. The large buttons ad a great touch as well!

3. Lucy Love Riding Jacket

It looks like a heavy pea coat, but it’s just a soft cover up that’s made to fool ya! Plus the contrast in the colors and buttons give this jacket a nice touch.

H&M Holiday Sale!

December 9, 2009

I love H&M because their clothes are so affordable and I am so stoked that they have a Holiday Sale with tons of new clothing and accessories perfect for Holiday parties. Just let me warn you, if you go to their site, and click on Holiday, it’s a mess. It’s so hard to look through their stuff with clothing and shoes flying everywhere you move your mouse, so I do suggest hitting up a store.

However, I did manage to find these on the site and man… I need them… now!

1. Golden Holiday Shoes

For $14.95, you really can’t beat this price. Plus these shoes are the shiznit! Even if you only wear them once!

2. Fabulous Cardigan

$34.95. For Holiday parties and regular parties, you’ll definitely get good use out of this cardigan. The high neck will keep you extra warm and the cable pattern adds the perfect amount of detail without looking too overdone. Hot damn!

Goodbye Recession, Just SHOP IT TO ME!

We’re all slightly hurting from the recessions that’s been going on for what seems like FOREVER! But, ladies, no matter how much or how little we make, we should still be stylish, right?

That’s where Shop It To Me comes in. You sign up on their site and check all your favorite designer brands and they send you emails with what’s on sale for your specific brand! It’s great. You can tell them what size you wear so you only get notifications if they have it in your size, and you can choose to get emails however often you’d like. They have a ton of brands like Michael Kors, Steve Madden, Gucci, Victoria’s Secret, Urban Outfitters, Juicy, etc etc.

I love getting these emails – they always make my day and it saves me the time to have to scour the web and find great deals. Thanks Shop It To Me!

The Anytime / ALL the Time hoodie.

May 28, 2009

Picture 2I am perpetually a cold person, even when it’s pretty hot outside and sunny. I guess that’s no big shock since I had to move back to sunny California from cold New York. Anyway, I’m always looking for the perfect hoodie. My definition of the perfect hoodie is that it’s thin enough to wear ALL the time or layer, its super soft and cozy on my sensitive skin and it’s stretchy so that you can push up the arms and they actually stay.

People, look what I found at TARGET!

NOTE: Buy a size smaller if you like them snug because they will stretch out after continual use (which I know you’ll be doing!)

Oooooh Cardigans!

December 19, 2008

I’ve been resisting the urge to buy more clothing – because my closet is packed and so is my dresser. However, I cannot resist the urge to search the web and web shop without buying. And I found this amazingly comfortable cardigan that’s loungy yet can be dressy on sale for only $20 at Macys! SCORE!

April 16, 2007

So I went shopping at Urban Outfitters again this weekend and just to let everyone know, there’s a 50% off sale for all the already marked down sale items. I bought a pair of earrings that were originally $18.99 for $4.99 and a pair of $60 jeans for $10!!!! It was amazing and they have some awesome deals, so if you need new clothes, there isn’t a better time than now!!!

Cashmere is always in style.

I think the reason I like this cashmere cardigan is because its kinda all over the place at once, while still being put together, haha. I can’t help but want to put this on and lounge around the house in it (though I don’t think my wallet would allow me to do so). Its available at Anthropologie. And yes, its all that its cracked up to be. 

Sweater – tunic thing….

This is a series of photos I took myself (as if you couldn’t tell by the amazing photography!). I saw this sweater tunic thing and liked it so much that I had to try it on. I didn’t catch the name of it (hence my own made up name) and when I called the store, the salesperson couldn’t find it. But, I swear, its in the store! So you will have to go check it out for yourself!
