Shiny Things

1

Every time I visit India, I come back with pieces of fashion jewelry stuffed in every corner of my bags. The latest trip was no exception. Here are my favorites from the latest haul.

Vintage bracelets: arm candy for a maxi dress or a jeans-and-T-shirt ensemble.

Long gold chains of assorted lengths and designs from which to hang a collection of lockets and pendants.

Gorgeous collar necklace from Kokommo, to instantly pretty up a plain chambray or chiffon shirt.

Proposal Defense

0

Mango pants, H&M top, Target belt, custom necklace from India, Nine West shoes
After three semesters of prerequisites, readings, research, writing, and mini-projects, my degree program ends this semester with a master’s project. It’s supposed to be the culmination of everything I have studied so far, and last week I had to defend my proposal in front of faculty and peers. It was an important presentation for which we were asked to dress “professionally.” In the communications industry, there is no …

Trend Watch

0

I wanted to do my usual trend watch for this post, but so many exciting trends are having a fashion moment right now that I couldn’t pick just one. Here are three of my favorites.

Emerald Green
Since Pantone declared emerald the color of the year for 2013, green has been popping up in all kinds of deep hues. Personally, I’ve never been a big fan of green. Somehow it always looks dated to me. But I set aside my personal biases …

Back without the Bangs

1

I just realized that it’s been six months since I last posted here. Life has been moving along quietly: I completed another semester in the master’s program, took an unexpectedly long trip to India (highlights below), and performed more statistical analysis than Chandler Bing in all of Friends.

So, a couple of research papers, a must-have-a-red-dress phase, and several internal crises later, here I am. The research papers ended in fireworks, the red dress phase resulted in the spectacular number from …

Mirrored Florals

0

 

While I have shared my reservations about printed trouser-shaped pants before, I have been intrigued by all the printed denim that seems to have exploded on the scene of late. In order to test drive the trend, I found this fabulous pair of skinny jeans with a mirrored floral print in the big sale at ASOS a few weeks ago.

They have the perfect skinny cut while still being comfortable enough to wear all day. I combined them with an open(ish) …

Like A Box of Crayons

2

Zara jeans, Urban Outfitters top and shoes
When I take photos for the blog, I usually take them in a natural setting. I don’t like to scout a location and stage a shoot just for the blog. But LA has been having such beautiful weather the last few weeks that I had to make an exception on this gorgeous afternoon.

I found these green jeans at Zara during their giant summer sale. Both neon and color blocking are having a huge fashion …

Back to Work

0

H&M top, Forever 21 skirt, Urban Outfitters sandals, Zara bag
Even though it’s just a summer internship, going back to work after a long hiatus has been an interesting experience. After being a full time graduate student for a year, I’m no longer used to waking up to an alarm, eating lunch at a fixed time, or trying to find street parking in the evening.

Unlike all of those things, dressing for work has come right back to me like a reflex. …

High-Low Skirt

0

As fans of this blog on Facebook know, big crazy summer sales were on at H&M and Zara last weekend. Between the two stores, I brought home two pairs of pants, two blouses and a jacket for $111. Though I am pleased with the bargain haul, I am now regretting having put back this asymmetrical hem skirt at Zara:

I have been looking for an asymmetrical chiffon skirt for a while, but I would really like one …

Lazy Sunday

1

Express shorts, Forever 21 top and sweater, H&M bag, Dolcetta by Dolce Vita loafers
Last week was packed with socializing. We had friends visiting from out of town on separate occasions, and our evenings were spent going out and visiting some local hot spots with them.

After much eating and drinking, I was happy to take this weekend to do nothing in particular. I threw together some comfortable outfits for running errands and tackling a DIY project at home (more on that …

One-Piece

1

Summer is here, which means it’s time to bring out the bathing suits. Even though I really like my two-piece from Victoria’s Secret, I’m drawn to one-piece swimwear this season. What’s hidden is sometimes sexier, and if you have the body for a bathing suit, a one-piece can create a view as bewitching as a bikini. Here are a few I’ve been spying. I’m particularly liking the vintage styling and the strategic cutouts. What are your favorite styles?
