Balmain x HM

The official lookbook for the Balmain X H&M collaboration was released this past week and I just wanted to share with you guys my favorite looks from the collection. Quite a 180 from last year's minimalistic Alexander Wang collab, however, I'm really loving the opulence and over the top detailing, embroidery, and jewel tones and rich, dark colors of the Balmain collection, perfect for the upcoming holiday season (my favorite time of the year!). Typical of Balmain, the structured mini dresses, military influences, and luxerious fabrics and embellishments remain cornerstones of the collaboration. 

Have you guys seen the BalmainXHM Lookbook? What are your favorite pieces? 

I also enjoyed reading about The Balmain fashion house in this article. Enjoy :)

Blame It On The Whiskey

I am in love with these shoes! Funny story, I was actually about to buy them the day before they came in the mail, but for some reason decided not to. I guess it was meant to be, as I found them in my package from Piperlime the very next day! Thank You Piperlime!

These pictures were taken at night time, as you can see, because I really don't have any other time during the week. Having started my new job a couple weeks ago, I'm  at work from morning till evening, and by the time I get off it's completely dark. :( But i'm actually quite pleased with how these pictures turned out, especially since it was my first time shooting at night. These pictures are definitely a different vibe than my usual blog pictures, and if I do say so myself, are a lot edgier!

Peacock :: Asymmetrical Hems and Black Pearls

Continuing with my holiday inspired outfits! Usually around the holidays, I'm all about shiny, sparkly, brocade, etc.....and really this skirt is perfect! I love the asymmetrical hem and the intertwined peacock colors. The skirt is such a stand-out piece that I thought it would be best to keep the rest of the outfit black to make it really pop! I really never wear that much jewelry, but I'm always about pieces that make a statement, like this black pearl necklace. It's actually one extremely long necklace that I randomly twisted around a couple of times to form knots and such. I think it keeps them from looking too perfect and stuffy!

Crimson :: Neoprene Skirt and Houndstooth Details

Hey everyone! I hope you all survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday and what not! This is what I decided to wear for my Thanksgiving celebration. I was feeling a little Blair Waldorf inspired and VERY festive. Can you tell?

Even though it's still quite warm in OC, it's cool enough to start incorporating scarves. I'm completely in love with this Emma scarf from a new LA based online store, From Dylan. It's extremely soft and i love the houndstooth print, which also comes in yellow and coral! I literally just want one of every scarf on the website now that the chilly weather is kicking in! Definitely check them out while you're doing all your online Christmas shopping!

Cutting Corners

Can we just talk about how much I adore this dress? I got this Lovers and Friends "Cutting Corners" dress sometime during Summer and have been enamored with it ever since. Dressed up or down, this dress is such a head turner, with its perfectly placed cut-outs, striking red color (my favorite!), and the fact that it's perfectly twirl-worthy. I took this dress with me on my trip to Paris during July (picture post to come?) and now every time I put it on, I'm reminded of frolicking around the cafe lined streets of Paris....Can someone send me back please?

Talking about coffee, if you follow me on Instagram, you'll know how much of a coffee addict I am. My absolute favorite place to get coffee these days is Portola Coffee Lab in Costa Mesa. It's so rare to actually find a place where you can sit down and enjoy a cup of good coffee...that's actually in a ceramic cup! If you're ever in the area, I definitely recommend checking it out!
