.inspiration board.

often when i flip through editorials i start to re-imagine what colors and tones i have that make me love the photo so much. i did a quick photo of tonight's inspiration. i would recommend every girl try it at least once, it lends to dreaming up new looks. on this page, green vintage hoops, h&m bracelet, bra by gap body.

.if this dress could speak.

torn off the ornate brocade fabric of the palace walls she is draped with my rich, dense texture on her delicate frame. Under the dim metropolitan street lights lining the Met, I saw my reflection in the passing cars as I fled the the elaborate paintings of Italian Dignitaries and their dignified wives. I didn't like their stares, their condescending elitist glares at her disheveled tresses and urban interpretation of their opulent dresses. we stop momentarily to adjust her black suede stiletto ankle boots to regain composure.

This is my rebirth, I assert looking over my shoulder, my modern rendering of your classical views.

.spontaneity equals better outfits equals cooler style.

i think im turning over a new leaf, or maybe re-turning over an old leaf. im upset to admit my spontaneity with dressing has been dwindling as i get older. if i don't have to, i don't like to plan, i tend to get anxious and it oft takes out some of the fun that it would have been if it had simply just happened. the same can be applied to style. why does it become harder and harder to just throw on the ensemble without thinking of all the other options? well, im over it. from now on, its ten minutes to out the door, no rethinking. a look i put together in a minute, id like to think it channels anna dello russo, and it will (as promised, in some shape of the below image) be quickly thrown together for a fun night out....

go ahead, i dare you to do the same.

.biker kicks.

friday night ikea date, much to my boyfriend's dismay. it is a forty-minute drive commitment and if not for the fact he needed a new office chair, the idea may have been a disaster. browsing the as-is section (a wonderland of fun returns at discounted prices) i found an assembled clothes rack for seven dollars. with my aversion to outfit posts still an obstacle, i was so happy to find this treasure.

below are another pair of boots that i'm really excited to wear as fall approaches, the studs and leather lacers make them incredibly interesting. these boots, a purchase from my favourite south korean website, last season, were a great add to the wardrobe. i would highly recommend a visit there for any girl in need of a new clothing site.

.i think i want one.

the leather harness to be exact. this max azria for herve leger is merely one example of a great way a harness adds a little bite to an outfit. the question is, can you only pull this off with a negative size zero frame?....hmmmm....might have to save this look for a skinny week.

.wonder boots.

my marc jacobs wonder woman boots, a present to myself after i graduated university with three great job offers. i didn't realize the symbolism in them until i really started paving a career and living in the big persons world. now when i put them on a feel crazy powerful- and ready to save the day.

.elizabeth and james, spring 2013.

i am thrilled with elizabeth and james spring collection. it looks to have several undertones of the row label and more than ever before shows parallels to the olsen twins personal style. peep the gray robe below, my favorite piece/look, which i think could be worn all year long. all in all, the collection has the signature comfortable ease i look for and selectively are things i would add to my wardrobe. with this said, im ready for fall and to add layers upon layers upon layers.

spring can wait.

.black skeleton tank, a necessity.

this is one of my go-tops. a piece by asos that pairs well with almost every blazer, jacket, coat, skinny jean, bra, underwear, and shoe in my closet. i think its the piping and shape of the tank that makes it so versatile. and not to fret, it has a creme twin tucked away in my closet too.

.perfectly camoflaged.

i have one requirement for a future home, and that is all wood floors. i love the click click click of my heels across its surface. so naturally putting a pair of platforms against a great wood finish (this my dining room table) makes me giddy happy. i love how they blend in perfectly with the wood, so excited to rock them this fall with a great jean and slouchy sweater. platforms by LAMB.

.three day weekends.

i love a three day weekend. when im not using them to travel back east, i use them to focus on relaxing and long/short-term goals. and also, to think about what readers may want to know about me.

so here goes..

my style is eclectic, but leans towards less frilly, clean-lined and minimal.
my hope is to start styling here in phoenix, and i've been chipping away at what the business structure will look like. stay tuned.
my one big fear is being in front of the camera, so this is also a work in progress. also stay tuned.
my loves are my family, boyfriend, friends, fashion, art, design, business and travel . (with the last five always inter-changing)

dinner date night was a win for my closet last night, in the form of a seventy-five percent off mens' sales rack. saturdays surf nyc shirts have been a favorite of mine for the boyfriend, their designs are simple and to the point...and they bring a little east coast aesthetic to my west coast existence. as luck would have it, the sales rack at a local boutique had a few smalls, and no larges for the boyfriend. therefore, i finally got my very own saturdays shirt....this weekend's looking up! already.

this is my victory picture, likened to a 'someone in myrtle beach loves you so much they brought you back a t-shirt' pic.
