Weekend Sequins

This weekend was rather exciting as I can officially say that I am a graduate student! I had my first day of class this Friday and am happy to say have enjoyed the whole day spent on Saturday reading and doing my assignments. I can’t wait to continue on in this adventure. Graduate school is huge and always has been a dream. I am going to get my M.A in Marriage & Family Therapy. Did you go to graduate school? If so…please leave comments on your experiences and/or tips! Would love to hear them!

This outfit was what I wore for a lunch meeting this weekend. I purchased this sequin sleeve blazer a month or so ago and was very excited to wear it. It’s such a statement piece that I kept the rest of my outfit very simple.

All that glitters…

HAPPY FRIDAY! 

There is something about sequins that just make me feel instantly better. For a meeting (fashion-based), I wore this gold sequined jacket that I had bought nearly three years ago. I kept the rest of my outfit very simple; total black. I did add some red lipstick to give my look a little va-va-voom. I also put my hair in a knot-bun, something I’m not usually one to sport. I’m all curls or straight hair, so testing new ways to “update” my hair is always fun!

winter white with a twist

Who says you can’t wear white after Labor day? I think that winter whites are lovely…hence my outfit below. I love to wear all white during the winter with neutrals but since it’s been in the 70’s this week in Los Angeles, I felt I might as well start working my Spring wardrobe. I have had this hot pink blazer from Zara for ages and worn it a few times already, but it’s been sitting in my closet the past four months. I can’t say how happy I am to bring it out. Also, this is the first time I have worn my “Lila” color-block pumps from Sole Society. If you don’t know, I’m a Fashion Insider this January and I couldn’t be happier. You can view my looks here, or go onto the Sole Society webpage & see which shoes are my favorite.

Anyhow, this post is probably one of my favorites. I wore my white denim, a white basic t-shirt, & my hot pink blazer. The pink adds a nice pop of color and shoes really give it something extra special. The combination of purple and pink is one of my favorites. Although purple and pink can appear to be a very teenage color combo, this is how I put the two colors together to create a mature yet playful look.

Simple Sequins

My love for sequins I’m sure is very well known. I think a little sparkle can be chic, especially if done right. Today’s outfit was before a late lunch/early dinner. I was wearing this outfit during the day with black ballet flats before I switched to my blush suede pumps from ShoeMint.

I wore these heels because I love the “school girl” vibe they bring to my outfit. A t-shirt & sequin skirt can be very fun for a casual day out (at least in my world!). I love how casual this look can be with ballet flats, or amped up for night with heels.

I hope you enjoy this outfit post!

Leather Details

I am a very big fan of leather/faux leather & I incorporate the fabric as often as I can in my blog posts. I am not sure why I love it so much, but probably because it just adds that bit of edge. This particular outfit was during my last day in San Francisco. I call this outfit “leather details” due to the fact the details are all leather-based. My blazer has leather details in the pockets & leather patches on the shoulder which complimented my shorts. Typically I would have worn a leather bootie but since I was walking excessively from touring the amazing sites of SF, I chose flats.

I was loving the colorful wall at this nightclub closeby to where we were staying & just had to use it.

Make me Blush

Happy New Year everyone! First and foremost, I want to thank you all for all the constant support & love you have all given me. This blog would be nothing without you. So, thank you. I have lots planned for this blog, re-designing it & making it more interactive for you! Stay tuned for updates as by the end of January, it will be re-vamped with lots of goodies for you. Thank you again! I love you all!

Before the New Year I met up with my old co-workers for a girl’s night out at this amazing steakhouse called Larsens. I had recently purchased these adorable Blush Suede platform mary-jane heels from ShoeMint. I am now obsessed with them. They are called the “Edith” & they come in black, but something about the blush color really spoke to me. I can’t wear to wear these babies in various ways!

For this outfit, I kept the whole blush tone concept, and wore a blush colored top, and neutral lips. It’s such a delicate and romantic color, which is why I am so drawn to it. Hope you enjoy this outfit post, it was a little impromptu. I still have to figure out how to take better pictures at night but I am excited to learn more.

Shoes, OMG, Shoes: Sole Society

I don’t know about you, but I am a shoe fanatic. When I learned I was going to be a Sole Society fashion insider for the month of January…I freaked out. I love their products and for a shoe club, their shoes are really…impeccable. I’ve previewed other shoe clubs & personally wasn’t impressed. As a fashion blogger, I want my shoes to look like they cost more than I paid, who doesn’t? Anyhow, Sole Societys quality & selection is unbeatable…and I’m not just saying that, I mean it. I would definitely go ahead & sign up (it’s free) & check out what they have to offer. It’s never wrong to look, plus, you can preview my fellow TwoPointOhLA bloggers who are also Fashion Insiders this month :). Thank you to Sole Society & Kelsi Smith for this amazing opportunity. I feel so blessed.

The concept of the shoot was to take one shoes & wear it four different ways. I chose the “Savannah” bootie because it was a shoe I would typically never wear. Peep-toe & past ankle booties are so scary to me, because they’re different from my norm. Thanks to this opportunity I challenged myself & created four unique looks with a shoe I would typically not wear. Let me say…I ended up falling for the shoes. I loved the challenge & I love how comfortable & chic the booties were.

My concept for the shoot was simple. Four seasons…in Los Angeles. Sadly, Los Angeles bears no brutal winters, but you’ll see my point shortly. Here are the images:

The shoe I chose was theSavannahbootie in tan :). Will discuss outfits from Top left to right bottom:

1. WINTER look: Navy cable knit sweater from Forever 21, White skinny jeans from ANGL, “Savannah” booties from Sole Society.

2. SPRING look: White button down from Forever 21, Hot pink blazer from Zara, Light wash skinny jeans from Blush Boutique, Necklace from Kapali Carsi in Istanbul, Turkey, “Savannah” booties from Sole Society.

3. SUMMER look: Lace top & orange skirt from Zara, Pearls from Kenneth Jay Lane, Snakeskin purse from Chanel, “Savannah” booties from Sole Society.

4. FALL look: Wine dress from In Love with Fashion, Nude handbag from Chanel, Necklace & Belt from Forever 21, “Savannah” booties from Sole Society.

Then we did a shoot where every blogger does something “blogger” like. Originally we were going to use to my iPad, but I’m too goofy to be so serious so I suggest jumping. I must say, it turned out pretty cute! Also, the shoes I’m wearing below are possibly my favorite.

On Me: Shirt borrowed from Chanelle from The Penelope Times, Skirt from Blush Boutique, “Sasha” heels from Sole Society.
