#nailart and a new ring

I went on a recent Instagram rampage and got sucked into a #nailart black hole, but out of it came my obsession with @nail_unistella and I made the decision to become my own nail artist, with the help of some Q-Tips and artist tape. Up close, they’re a bit messy, but from afar they’re passable. I’m also trying to give my nails a rest from nail polish, I want those natural strong nails y’all, so the dot technique is where I’ve been at for the past couple months. I feel like negative space is the way to go right now, so I’ve saved some down on Pinterest like the middle-aged lady I am.

Oh and featured below, my dad’s signet ring redesigned and updated for my index finger. Keeping it in the fam.

Back when it was warm

Photos from Greece with Lacausa & update

It has been a crazy few weeks, but don’t worry I’m here to tell you all about it. Hold tight. You’re now looking at a newly promoted digital designer, junior no more! I got crazy busy at work and then all stressed out with the whole “Am I getting the promo or not”, so kind of dropped off the face of this blog :( but it’s all guccy now

Apart from that, it’s been snowing in London and I, for one, am not about it because as we’re no longer in school, snow days aren’t really snow days after all, am I right? So instead, to combat the colder weather, I’m sharing a couple photos from Greece, when my sister and I shot some images for Lacausa for their summer collection…I’m dreaming away

New new new, trying out some flash photography

While wearing an everyday look

I’m sharing a pretty typical, everyday look today. I had a different outfit planned for this post, but was not feeling it at all. I gave it a solid 10 mins of effort, then had to go home to change. Does that ever happen to you guys? Instead I threw on a classic get-up – band tee, my Moschino quilted jean jacket and a Fruit of the Loom sweater to wear as a scarf. I love wrapping a sweater around my neck and pretending I’m either a preppy frat boy or a 35-yr old mother on my way to pick up my kids from golf camp. It’s fun to play around.

Given the sheer amount of times I wear this jacket, I’m surprised that it’s only the second time I’ve shared this on here. I got this for £30 in a charity shop two years ago, and I’ve hardly taken it off since. I have two goals for this blog – buy smarter and share more. I might be sharing the same piece for years to come, but at least it’ll be totally genuine.

I’m also loving this flash photography, I have a feeling it’ll be back every once in a while. We have a new creative director at work who’s all about trying everything out, change this and change that, and I’m kind of inspired to try that here. I’m excited to see what’s to come!!

She’s In Red

I have a thing for leather trenches & old Valentino

Trench coats seem to be a bit of a hit or miss for people, but it’s a definite conditional hit for me. There are some sickass trenches out there, ahem this Margiela raw hemmed stunner, but you’d be hard pressed to find me in a basic, more “classic” trench. Hence, the leather trench, an easy way to update a pretty standard look. I’ve worn my black one (see it in a post here) to death in the past two years, to the point where it’s lost any coolness I used to think it has, so when my sister gave me this one, which incidentally was passed down to her from my aunt, I couldn’t say no! I love the western belt detailing on the back and the bathrobe-like closure – anything to give me a defined waist is a win in my book.

There’s a few new items here amidst my overworn AF1s and cargos, like my mom’s very 2004-ish Valentino bag. She wore this a lot when we were living in Paris, and all I can remember is that it clearly doesn’t close very well seeing as she was pickpocketed at least four times in one year. But! I just love it, and I carry my card in my coat and my phone in hand, so really good luck to whoever tries to pick my pockets. I’m wearing new Retrosuperfuture sunglasses too, and since I’ve been back to London, I’ve stubbornly been plopping these on my face, trying to pretend it’s a foggy pink out, instead of a foggy grey. Power of positive thinking, no?

Undone in Lacausa

Back in LA, wearing all Lacausa <3

Back in August my sister and I took some photos for her friend’s brand, Lacausa, and here we are, doing part 2 in San Onofre after a bit of surfing and food. Looking super happy here – nothing like a bit of sun and sand after a couple cold months in London. I’m back in LA for the holidays and I could not be happier about it!! We were sent the Uniform trousers, ultra hi-waist, ultra flattering, and their Cameron blouse, the perfect amount of sheer and flared sleeves. The Adidas slides are a bit 2014, but I think a little heeled sandal or boot would make it work for winter. I can’t wait to wear this top to death, there’s nothing I love more than a shirt with only two buttons buttoned. Overall, A+ on cut and quality.
