IMG_9845The great news is that LA is coming out of its 5 year drought. We have are about 40% out of our drought. We need more rain. Luckily we are getting more rain. As a result I have been able to take my Moncler jackets out of storage and wear them. The last few winters these jackets have not seen the light of day thanks to 65 degree weather in Tahoe and Mammoth. Finally, we are seeing 45 degree nights and 55 degree days. I wore my jacket for work all day today and it kept me warm, cozy, and stylist all day with my Chanel cocoon quilted backpack while I worked all day in Downtown Los Angeles.

Moncler Bady Jacket can be found here in red or here in black.

Chanel Cocoon bags can be found here. Other quilted black backpacks are available here at for $34 and MZ Wallace for $245.

Date Night Outfit

Iro-boucle-jacketWhen looking for date night outfits these days it is so hard to figure out what is the right thing to wear. You can’t wear a dress unless it is summer, you don’t want to look like you are trying to hard and wear every single trend from a metallic bomber jacket to a pair of ripped jeans. What is the perfect outfit?

This weekend I went to Church & State on Industrial Avenue in the Arts District in Los Angeles and decided to do a not trying too hard Iro jacket, AG Jeans ripped black jeans, Steve Madden black ankle boots, my favorite Joie black top, and my trusty Givenchy bag. It turned out to be a great choice since I was warm, comfortable, and got a few compliments from my friends.

The food at Church & State was great by the way. We had the cheese platter, baguettes and butter and lots of red wine mostly and a little tasting of entrees between all of us that included Coq Au Vin and Skirt Steak. Definitely a great place to go for dinner.

Bejeweled Is No Longer Bedazzled

on January 16th, 2017

IMG_9710When I went to the LA Art Show this weekend I was inspired by all the modern and contemporary artwork from bronze sculptures to performance art. Every piece of art brought forth a feeling and emotion that inspired in its own special way. Clothing is the same. When you wear certain pieces, it helps to evoke a certain feeling or mood. This season bejeweled is no longer the bedazzled of your mom’s generation. Designers are looking at art and turning their pieces into pieces or art you can wear. Miu Miu created an embellished top that looks like a giant rainbow gem necklace, Stuart Weitzman created sandals so colorful they remind me of the Pom Poms I saw in Mexico. Rebecca Minkoff did the same with her thong sandals. Even bags from Fendi to Nano Alex are adorned with either patches or embroidered florals to match embroidered motorcycle jackets from earlier this season.

Metallic Bomber Jackets that are Gucci like

on January 11th, 2017

Gucci-Bomber-jacketSince the British Vogue article came out about the must have silver Gucci metallic bomber jacket for Fall, everyone has been looking for the perfect version of the Gucci metallic bomber jacket. Like many, the Gucci metallic jacket at $3,600 is a little bit out of the budget. I did find some great looking alternatives that I thought I must share with you. One of my favorites come from the controversial Nasty Gal. This version has the same signature cuff colors of the original Gucci bomber jacket, but it is in a gold metallic version instead of silver. For $78, the Nasty Gal version is pretty darn good if you want a gold bomber jacket. One that looks very close to the Gucci metallic bomber jacket is actually sold at Forever 21 for $34.90. I bought this version and I love wearing it with dresses or pants. Other versions in all gold without the signature cuffs can be found at Asos and Neiman Marcus. Since this metallic trend may be fleeting, spending under $100 may be the way to go. metallic bomber jacket

Fur Hoods at Herve Leger Fall 2013 Runway Show in NYFW

on February 9th, 2013
0 Comment

It is snowing on the east coast like really snowing. Herve Leger showed fur hooded jackets and cardigans on their Fall 2013 runway show at the Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week yesterday. Their hooded jackets came in white, black, and other colored furs. Everything was about fur for 2013 and the looks had baseball caps underneath. I love that look and it also can give you a great structured look for Fall 2013 because the hood by itself may be too floppy.

If you are cold right now under 30 inches of snow on the east coast, maybe you should look into getting a few fur hooded pieces to keep you warm for the rest of winter since the groundhog recently told us there were 6 more weeks of winter.

Here are some suggestions:

Belstaff short coat - Nylon zip front coat with snap placket. Two zipper pockets and two snap flap pockets at front. Contrast leather trim at placket and pockets. Contrast shearling lining at high collar and removable butterfly raccoon trimmed hood.Lined. Available in Khaki. Made in Italy. Are you cold? This would keep you warm for at least 6 more weeks and beyond. Belstaff short coat for $3,995.

Rick Owens Fur Sweatshirt Vest - Oversize hood with lambs’ fur lining and adjustable drawstrings. Non detachable self tie waist belt closure. Internal lambs’ fur vest . Made in Italy. The best throw over item that will keep you warm and cozy when you need something in the office. Rick Owens Fur Vest for $3542.

Mackage Fur hood leather jacket - Mackage elevates the military trend with these amazingly structured and detailed jackets. Accented with epaulets, buttons, and even officer stripes, these pieces move right on up to fashion’s front lines. If you are the gal who needs a little more edgy this is the jacket for you for $980 from Mackage.

Mackage Fur Bomber Puffer Jacket – Mackage makes a great looking short fur hooded puffer jacket for those afternoon casual walks and days out on the weekends. The Joey jacket is just the right amount of puff with just the right amount of luxe. On sale for $440, the Mackage Joey Jacket is worth a look.
