RAIN is coming to Los Angeles tomorrow in the AM. Are we ready? If you are not ready. Get your rain boots now. there is more rain coming on Monday. Maybe the drought is over finally. Angelina Jolie made the red Hunter Wellington boots famous in Mr. and Mrs. Smith when she met her partner Brad Pitt. Now 9 years later, she was seen recently in Scotland and in Australia wearing her signature all black ensemble with a pair of practical functional black Hunter Wellington boots while hanging out with her 6 kids and directing a new film.
While a lot has changed in Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s lives, the Hunter Wellington boots have stayed their same great quality and still come in a rainbow of beautiful colors to keep your feet warm and cozy through the rainy seasons this fall and winter.

Clutter Storage To Help Clean Up For the Holidays – I recently discovered a new service that is BRILLIANT. It is like UBER but for storage. Do you hate trekking to your local scarey store unit 30 minutes away to get something out of storage that you may need for the holidays or to change out your wardrobe for the season because you don’t have enough space in your house? This service is awesome because they come to your house and help you box up whatever you want to have stored and they take it away for you. When you want it back, you go on your iPad and click on the items you want back and you get them brought back to you for a small fee.
Here is why I think this service is a great idea. I would never store my stuff at a storage place where I cannot see what stuff I have stored away because most likely I will forget what I have stored there and in a year or two after paying for all that storage I may just not want any of it anymore because it is outdated or I bought something else to replace it because I forgot I owned it.
This is really brilliant for someone who has lots of shoes or clothing. For instance if you have clothes and shoes for summer and spring and you have a hard time finding everything in your closet because it is way too cluttered, why not split your clothes up by season and send the rest to Clutter Storage. Then you can just look on your iPad for the items you want back when the seasons change and with a few clicks and swipes, you can have the Clutter Storage folks come back and grab everything you don’t want for the season and store it away AND you can get the stuff back that you want to wear for this season. This way you will always have an organized way to deal with your clothing and you will not have to worry about a closet that is too full with hidden items that you don’t wear because there is too much in your closet.
This is also great for the holidays when you want to get rid of some of the furniture or kitchen gadgets in your house to make the house look more spacious for your holiday guests. Have Clutter Storage come by and pick up your bigger pieces of furniture or kitchen gadgets and store them until you need them back. Your house guests will think you redecorated!

Fur and Fringe Olsen Holiday Style – The holidays are around the corner and I have been thinking about my holiday outfits from what long gold chains to wear with my black cashmere tunics to what faux fur or fur vests to wear with my leather Vince pants. My inspiration always comes back to stacks of bangles and rings and tons of eclectic charm with the Olsen twins. I love their style it is high low bohemian with a flair and it is always right on trend.
Take this outfit that Mary Kate Olsen is wearing for instance – I love the fur vest with the aviator sunglasses, platform sandals, gold watch, stacks of bangles, and fringe bag. It is so rock and roll and yet so perfect right?
Get the look:
Chaus fur vest in black for $129
Michael Kors large runway watch in gold for $275
Ray Ban gold aviator sunglasses for $170
Kate Spade Gold bangle for $32
Faux Black Leather Leggings Olsens Style for Fall – having recently become a little obsessed with Olsens Style I am looking everywhere for trends that they have been so fashion forward about over the years. One of the pieces they have been seen wearing over the past few years that should continue to be part of your wardrobe is the faux leather legging or the leather legging depending on your budget and your vegan or non vegan preferences.
As you can see from Ashley Olsen here – she has paired her leather leggings with big sunnies and a bohemian silk scarf as a headband, a croc leather clutch and lots of rings. In contrast to her all neutral ensemble she paired the look with a pair of crimson platform sandals. Love the look. MK looks pretty good too with her oversized pyramid studs leather jacket from Balenciaga and her orange sunnies.
Get the leather leggings look with these Ann Taylor faux leather leggings for $98.
Lysse also made a fab pair of faux leather leggings for $108 from Bloomingdales.
Ashley Olsen Army Parka Style for Fall – everything old is new again as they say. If you want to look cool like an Olsen this is a way to do it. Here she is from a photo from a few years back looking bohemian chic in a pair of Balenciaga knee high platform black boots with her aviator sunnies, a wrap around scarf and lots of rings on her fingers with an army green parka out on a fall day. This look is still so prevalent and relevant now that we are seeing it again everywhere. If you don’t have an army green parka for fall and winter – definitely get one. It will become a perennial favorite in your closet.
Check out these styles from Topshop, Nordstrom, TheOutnet, Asos, and other shops:
Asos has their own army green parka for $132 also from Asos.
Goodnight Macaroon has an army green jacket that is more of a trench – similar one seen on Manrepeller not too long ago here for $88.
Saks Friends and Family Sale – Hurry almost over – the Saks friends and family sale is going on right now and I think it is the perfect time to shop for all of your holiday gifts before it gets too busy to think about holiday shopping. Take 25% off almost everything in the store. Get all those button up shirts for your husband and all the shoes that you need and party dresses for the holiday season now.
Olsens and Kim Kardashian love Linda Farrow Sunglasses – Of course Linda Farrow’s son relaunched the sunglasses line by sending a few select pairs to the Olsens first and they helped to relaunch the line with a collaboration. This is how the mini moguls roll and why we love them as style icons. So that is where Kim Kardashian comes into the picture as someone who then starts wearing the sunglasses and of course the rest of Hollywood follows suit – Nicole Richie, Beyonce, and Rihanna…and more.
Linda Farrow sunglasses are great because they have a vintage quality to them. Old Hollywood with a little bit of 60′s and 70′s vibes that give them that different feel. Definitely not a pair you would run into daily.
Here is what we think these celebrities would wear if given another pair of Linda Farrow sunglasses:
The Olsens would probably wear one of their own The Row for Linda Farrow Collaboration pairs of sunglasses found here from Selfridges
Here is a pair that we think Nicole Richie would wear from Linda Farrow found at The Outnet for $219.80 on sale from $550
Amal Alamuddin may not be wearing Linda Farrow by The Row yet, but if she were to wear a pair this is the pair we think she would wear from the Editorialist even though we know she favors Heidi London which can be found at Saks.
Kim Kardashian would probably wear this cat eye pair by Linda Farrow from The Outnet for $213.50 on sale from $600
Beyonce would probably wear this very retro pair by Linda Farrow from Selfridges
Tibi Halter Dresses and Tops Olivia Palermo loves to Wear - Olivia Palermo has been seen wearing lots of Tibi camisole tops and dresses to many of her public appearances. It is no wonder since all Tibi halter tops and dresses are so well tailored without any unnecessary extra buttons or zippers. Tibi pieces are just well cut pieces that are flattering. Olivia Palermo is known for favoring pieces that are classic and simple and that is why she loves to wear Tibi. Angelina Jolie has been seen wearing the same Tibi halter tops often as staple underpinnings in her wardrobe as well for the same reason.
Tibi Halter dress in black from Neiman Marcus for $575
Tibi halter camisole top in black from Revolve Clothing for $198
Angelina Jolie always wears neutrals with black pants or just all black. Her outfits are simple classic understated ensembles that compliment her exquisite features. One of my favorite tops on her are the crew neck nude beige short sleeve and long sleeve sweaters she is constantly seen wearing. She was seen recently wearing a long sleeve nude beige top with her Tom Ford aviator sunglasses. I found a very similar nude beige blush sweater by Vince that looks a lot like the one that Angelina Jolie is wearing in this photo. Vince nude cashmere sweater.
