A Mini Flare

I'm all of a sudden very drawn to the cropped flared pant... I think it has something to do with a pair of psychedelic 70's floral trousers I decided to customize and crop a few days ago. They look so good with a men's linen dress shirt!

Anyway, these are a pair of cranberry red Miu Miu trousers that I already wore twice these week...
Worn with a vintage silk robe, American Apparel striped tank, Coach python clutch, Prada patent chocolate brown pumps, and vintage Versace sunglasses.
Gonna go listen to some Lauryn Hill... Hope you're all having a superb weekend!!

The Denim Jacket

I am sure we all have that one item in our closets we always run to when our outfits feel like they're lacking something. For me, it's my Levi denim jacket. I've collected quite a few of them, but this one in particular is customized! I had it taken in and altered, so that it'd fit me in the arms and underarms, but still have that sort of baggy shape to it.  
Worn with Topshop lace-up trousers, Karen Walker sunglasses, Karla's Closet for Coach bag, and Gucci wooden platforms.
What's your go-to item in your closet?

Memory Dress

This vintage taffeta dress is one of my favorite dresses ever, but it's difficult to wear without looking like a grandma (even though I secretly love dressing like elderly women sometimes). I bought it in a boutique in Burbank and it was extremely marked down because it has a tear by the side zipper.... I think the tear makes it that much more special though!
Worn with Prada heels and my dad's leather belt.

Getting off the internet now, the weather is too nice to be stuck inside all day!


Lately I've found myself loving heart-shaped bustier dresses, so it was a really sweet surprise when I received this dress from Plastic Island...
What I love most about this dress is that has this incredibly structured origami detail on the side, almost like a fin!
Worn with a silk blouse, Balenciaga platform sandals, and Jil Sander mirrored shades.
Thank you Rachel for my Plastic Island dress! 


I spotted this 50's prom dress at a random vintage store on Sunset Boulevard a long time ago,. I fell in love with it, but the problem was that it was way too big and way too long. I ended up taking it in and making it shorter and now it is easily one of my favorite princess dresses!

Worn with vintage jewelry (love those fancy crystal earrings) and L.A.M.B shoes.


Please excuse me for the lack of updates this whole week, I decided to enjoy some time off from the internet world after coming back from Hawaii.

Anyway, lately I've been experimenting a lot with different lip colors and most of them don't really suit my skin tone... I am in love with the lipstick I'm wearing in these photos though! It's called Crush by Sephora.
Wearing vintage sequined blouse from American Rag, Zara cargo trousers, Marc Jacobs bowler ankle boots, and Karla's Closet for Coach clutch.
I've been wearing my rhinestone necklaces as bracelets lately...
These boots are so perfectly worn-in, I could never get rid of them! Favorite shoes of all-time.

Goodbye Paradise

Right now I'm packing and getting ready for my flight back home tomorrow... I don't want to leave Maui! I love it here so much, I could easily stay for another two weeks or so.

A couple days ago we all went snorkeling out by Lahaina-- it was so much fun, the tour guides were so sweet!

The water was so beautiful, I really couldn't stop taking pictures! 
We were lucky enough to see the dolphins near Lana'i. They're were so cute, I wanted to give them an eskimo kiss!
A couple pictures from last night before dinner...
Wearing American Apparel U-neck dress, vintage Levi shorts, and Joe's Jeans platforms.

Gonna go finish packing and deal with all these mosquito bites I got from today's rainforest hike!

Kihei Road

Last night I had possibly the most delicious dinner ever at Mama's Fish House- Peppercorn grilled Ahi with mashed sweet potatoes and guava creme brulee for dessert. I decided to wear an over-the-top ruffled blouse and I certainly got some strange looks from those donning Hawaiian-print shirts and dresses...

Please don't make fun of my tan lines! Wore this Carrie Bradshaw-esque outfit to dinner last night... I'm wearing an American Apparel sash, vintage Egyptian bib necklace, Rogan trousers, and Balenciaga platform sandals...
Ombre Gucci loafers...

Going to bed a little earlier tonight, we're heading to Lahaina bright and early tomorrow morning to snorkel! 

Fourth Day in Maui

I am currently sitting on my hotel room balcony with a sun-burnt nose and awfully visible tan lines. I've been in Maui for about four days now and I'm loving every minute of it!

Here are some photos I've taken the past couple days...
The other day I wore my floral Topshop jeans that I picked up while I was in New York a while back. Worn with a Gap tank, vintage crystal bracelet, and my trusty Lanvin platform sandals.
Trying on my dad's Rolex... Wish I had one of my own!
