Happy Halloween!

October 31, 2016

Me as Chanel No. 3 from Scream Queens

Or should I say, Happy Chanel-o-ween!

Happy Halloween, everybody! Hope your weekend was full of more treats than tricks, and that tonight is fun too! As you can see, I kept in theme with last year's costume by going as the earmuff wearing, emotionally unavailable Chanel No. 3 from Scream Queens. Let's be real, it was mainly an excuse to buy earmuffs and a furry jacket!

What I Wore | Polka Dot Wall

October 28, 2016

Live colorfully!

When it comes to documenting a clutch outfit, a gorgeous backdrop is just as important as the clothes you're wearing. Luckily for me, downtown Los Angeles has no shortage of cool painted walls to photograph, and this week we hit up a famous one in my new neighborhood to use as the background for one of my go-to outfit combinations.

Shopping List | Capes

October 26, 2016

Gucci print wool-felt cape

Cloak yourself in style

There's just something about a cape that screams style, you know? Maybe it's the fact that they're less common than they used to be in the good ol' days (meaning the 1500s) and that they immediately bring to mind images of a brave heroine racing through the woods, trying to outrun a vicious wolf or dragon, but capes are cool. Sure, they don't allow for a full range of arm motion, but who cares when you're going for a capital L #Look?

What I Wore | Clueless & Coffee

October 24, 2016

Channeling my inner Cher Horowitz

It should come as no surprise that Cher Horowitz, Alaïa-wearing queen bee of Beverly Hills, is one of my top film fashion icons. From her classic yellow plaid skirt suit to her fabulous takes on preppy schoolwear, the style of Clueless's heroine is just as influential now as it was in the 90s.

What I Wore | California Fall

October 21, 2016

How Los Angeles Does Autumn

Halloween weekend is next week. According to Starbucks, after that, it's Christmas (or at least time for holiday cups) and yet here I am in LA, still wearing my cutoffs and sweating much more than anyone should outside of a gym. Oh, how I yearn to trade my iced lattes for cinnamon-spiced hot chocolates and cozy up in an oversized sweater! The weather has other plans; it hit 90° on the day of this photoshoot and is supposed to be unseasonably warm all weekend.

Trending | Rock Tees

October 19, 2016

Rock on!

Classic rock is having a moment. For the past two weekends, thousands ventured to Indio not for Coachella but for Dessert Trip (also known as "Old-Chella") where dozens of classic rock lineups performed for audiences young and old. Bob Dylan just won a Nobel prize for literature. And in the fashion world, band tees from classic bands like The Rolling Stones and The Who are everywhere.

I'm Back!

October 17, 2016

Back in the City of Angels, that is!

Maybe you noticed my cryptic Instagram and Snapchat posts this weekend, and maybe you figured it out already but...I'm back in Los Angeles! That's right! After a five-month stint at home following graduation, your favorite Fashion Barbie is back in La La Land where she belongs.

It Girl faves at half the cost!

Revolve has quickly become one of my favorite online shopping destinations. They feature blogger favorite brands like NBD, Tularosa, and The Jetset Diaries and have a cool, laid-back California aesthetic that I personally cannot get enough of. To make it even harder to resist spending all my money on their cute clothes, Revolve is having a huge sale and plenty of chic styles have been added! I've rounded up some of my favorites below, but you can shop everything here.

Outfit Inspiration | Leandra Medine

October 12, 2016

Leandra Medine of Man Repeller wearing Prada jacket, Comme des Garçons shirt, Carven skirt, and Miu Miu shoes

The perfect outfit for transitional weather

Leandra Medine is one of my all-time style icons, and when she featured this look on her website, Man Repeller, I full on freaked out. Like, how good is this outfit? Not only is she wearing the Carven skirt I featured on my September Wish List (AND the Comme des Garçons top I featured in March!), but she's paired them with a red and blue quilted Prada jacket like a private school girl caught in the rain. She questioned the staying power of Blair Waldorf style when describing this look, who is of course now and forever a fashion influence—at least for me—and I just adore this outfit.

What to Be This Halloween

October 10, 2016

Stranger Things' Eleven | Harley Quinn from Suicide Squad | Ariana Grande at the VMAs

How to be the talk of the costume party

Picking a Halloween costume can be a little stressful. I hate purchasing tacky polyester-based costumes from Party City, but making mine from scratch can be a real pain, too. And then there's always the fact that people might not get it and then you have to spend all night explaining who you are because the people surrounding you are uncultured pigs. JK random people, but seriously, it's the worst when people don't understand your costume reference.

Weekend Shopping Picks | Madewell et Sézane

October 8, 2016

Madewell et Sézane

The Cool Girl collaboration you need to shop now

We all know that I adore Madewell. Their relaxed, classically cool pieces are easy to wear and reasonably affordable, and I love that their pieces can mix and match with pretty much anything. Every month I have to keep myself from buying everything when perusing their new arrivals, and let me tell you, that is not easy. Madewell is basically perfect.

Paris Fashion Week | Part II

October 7, 2016

The finale at Miu Miu by Kevin Tachman for Vogue

Another Fashion Month in the books

Don't forget to read Part I here! The fashion crowd has left Paris. The endless Instagrams of the Eiffel Tower and the Jardin de Tuileries have come to an end. The world's top fashion designers have presented their Spring 2017 collections and are now prepping for the next season of fashion. It's a quick-moving world, but before we move on, let's take a look at the best stories, trends, and shows from these last few days of Fashion Month.

What I Wore | Trendy Brunch

October 5, 2016

WEARING Capulet bodysuit | Madewell jean jacket, shorts, and sunglasses
Via Spiga sandals | Chloé purse | Forever21 choker

Hey, guys! Lots of things happening around here—lots of very exciting things!!!—so I only have time for a quick post, but I promise on Friday I'll be posting my thoughts on the remainder of Paris Fashion Week (Chanel! Valentino! Miu Miu! Oh my!)

Happy Mean Girls day, everyone! Hope you're rewatching the classic high school film and wearing plenty of pink while reading my blog! It's the start of a new month, which means another monthly wish list, so here's what I'm craving for the month of October:
