winter wonders

after a week in Cali, i am (hopefully) headed back east– and apparently straight into NY’s first snow.

since jet blue isn’t currently cooperating, i stole time to round up a few winter ready picks necessary to get back in the city swing of things. compared to sunshine and 60, i’ve realized that NY life has not only pushed me towards all black everythinggg, but also more toward a blend of function & glam. it makes me crave a little ~edge~ that warmer weather fashions just don’t allow.

currently, i am loving the idea of a fancy print coat or embellished party sweater with some joggers and sneaks– comfy and cozy, slush friendly, and also holiday ready without trying too hard. and as a PSA for anyone in need of a more casual jacket, ive been wearing this tory sport-like bargain over yoga clothes and chunky knits for the last two weeks straight! fingers crossed i finally get out of this airport. Xx

1– metallic sneaks 2– cashmere joggers 3– leather weekend bag

4– miracle cure (i have been slathering this everywhere!, including painfully dry post-shave legs)

5– leather dress 6–pom pom beanie

7–shearling platforms (perfect for a winter commute) 8–leopard jacket

9– beaded sweater 10– crystal drops 11–matte lipstick 12– cocoon coat

the shape of water

YALL. has everyone seen the shape of water? i watched it on a plane home from SF last night and cannot get over it– the depth of character development, the unusual story line, the gorgeous cinematography, the attention to each and every tiny detail weaving in and out throughout the film…. talk about a work of art.

while obviously this film was very hyped at the oscars, i had put off seeing it because a) pan’s labyrinth scared the ever living s&*t out of me, which was the last big film by this director, and b) i have an extremely hard time sitting still for an entire movie, so i figured i needed to watch it at a time when i was feeling ready to focus, in order give it a fair chance. maybe it was being trapped on an airplane, but i was completely captivated. and don’t get me started on the ending– i won’t give away any spoilers, but text or email me to please discuss, because i am OVERWHELMED (can you ever just be “whelmed”?) and need someone to talk to about it. so there’s that.

the second mind blowing discovery of the day? lychee ice cream. THANK YOU JET BLUE. i have found a new non-sartorial obsession in this stuff. it’s light, creamy, not too sweet and completely worth the lactose-induced belly ache. do any readers know where i can procure such a delicacy at sea level?

in homage to my new favorite feature film, and in the effort of keeping this a fashion blog, a few items worthy of a modern day mermaid…

girl at the rock show

TGIF chicpeas! i dont know about you, but it’s taken me a lot of angry teen rock music to get through this week, especially Blink 182’s take off your pants and jacket album, which has been on heavy rotation (do it- you’ll feel better).

band tees have made a big comeback in street style of late, as you can see from the bloggerinas below. as a result, i’ve been inspired to edge up my typically conservative style and make it a little more ‘rock and roll’ by incorporating a faded tee, leather and some studs. try some for yourself, get angsty, and and prepare to party all weekend long…

1– leather jacket 2–cat eye shades 3– choker 4– cherry tee (another great option)

5– studded backpack  6– military jacket 7– sleek sneaks 8– crystal shades 9– rainbow hoops

10– beats headphones  11– leather pants 12–vegan leather skirt 13– moto boots

14– waistless denim  15– embellished crossbody 16– faded logo tee 17– shirred tank
