The Obsession List

I’ve been loving these wildly bright colors right now! This baby pink T-Shirt is so fun and bright! And this striped sweater is to die for on! They will be in heavy rotation for awhile.

These sweet and sour sugar lips from Sugarfina are my favorite candy ever! They are watermelon, berry and bubblegum flavored and they do not disappoint. They are great Valentines Day gifts or for any occasion gifts really!

 

The Fenty beauty products have been killing it. I am in love with the Kilawatt highlighter in Trophy Wife and the stunna lip paint! That highlighter is amazing it is very bright and glittering so it’s best worn in the evening for a fun night out! And that lip paint is as bright as it looks and is a very beautiful shade on many different skin tones!

My friend has got me on this addiction kick to cat eye gel polish. Every time we go to the salon together we wind up getting it! There are metals in the nail polish and when a magnet is placed over the top it pulls all of them together in a line, creating a cat eye effect. I just ordered that color above on Amazon and cannot wait for it to get here!

Wow! Last time I was on here posting was quite awhile ago! Looking back at all of these old posts is very nostalgic and its always funny to see what things you were into back when! So life update:

  1. I moved to LA a year and a half ago
  2. I am now a wedding videographer
  3. And strangely enough a part time interior designer

I am going to start this Life’s Short Wear A Dress experience back up! Lets see how it goes!

Zany Zippy Zooey

New Girl premiered on Tuesday night and it didn’t disappoint!  Zooey Deschanel comes off as is a quirky fun down to earth girl! She is known for her fun bright and boldly patterned wardrobe that she seems to wear on and off camera!  She has this 50’s retro ladylike pin up vibe going on and I love it!! I wish I could pull these looks off every day but that would be a lot of work and shopping! I’ve been noticing a lot of the vintage ladylike style hitting the runways of fashion week in NY and London this year so I started shopping around for the look! Here are some of my favorite images of Zooey and some of the ladylike wardrobe I stumbled upon!

Lady Like Resort Wear 2014

2014’s resort wear collections shown at Fashion Week New York from September 5-12th were amazing! I am loving the lady like feel of all the clothes for spring and the muted brights are an added touch that I’m looking forward to adding to my closet this spring! My hands down favorite collection had to be Jenny Packham I love that she paired everything with shiny metallic heeled oxfords with a pointed toe! It’s such a fresh take on the oxford I’m looking forward to seeing it hit stores sometime soon! I have to say she was my hands down favorite from the clothing to the shoes, makeup and hair! That messy big curly hair with the sweet little clips is a look I would love to try and achieve with my own hair! Though the makup was simple I think it still is my favorite because it’s fresh faced with flushed cheeks and natural lips!

My second favorite had to be J. Mendel, his collection is everything I’ve ever wanted to be able to pull off in every day life! It has a very mod feel to it with the thick straps around the shoulders and boxy shapes. I love the muted brights and I am looking forward to wearing them for spring! His fun geometric strappy heels seem to be having a major moment right now since I keep seeing similar styles everywhere!

A few of my other favorites were Monique Lhuillier with her stunning gowns pouty pink lips and slicked back hair!

Tory Burch also had a bit of a mod look going on in her collection with a lot of fun colors and bold prints to spice things up!

And last but by no means least the amazing Zac Posen. His every girly style always makes me love his collections. Every dress feels like a whimsical princess gown!

I am completely lusting after this Elizabeth and James sweater I saw in Nordstrom today! How cute is the cloud with the lightening bolt? I am in love with it and have to have it!! To bad it’s $295 I’ll have to save up for it!  In the meantime I’m listening to:

Flowing Dresses on Horseback

Yesterday while organizing more of my things I stumbled upon my old horseback riding helmet.  I had almost forgotten that I took lessons in college (I wasn’t the best!)but finding that helmet brought back so many fun memories.  I use to always want to show up to my lesson  in a long flowy dress, it always seemed so magical and romantic to ride a horse wearing an awesome pair of boots with a long dress blowing in the wind behind you! I never actually worked up the courage to show up to lessons in a dress mainly because I thought my teacher would think I was nuts and it also didn’t seem to safe considering I was a complete beginner and had no clue what I was doing! But one of these days I am going to have to find a way to do it and of course have someone there with a camera to capture the amazing moment. And since I’m clearly dreaming might as well have a soundtrack to dream to:

All This Time by Heartless Bastards (my favorite so of course they have to be in my dream soundtrack!)

Go To Sleep by The Avett Brothers

Fall Wish List

Shopping is an expensive hobby, of course it’s one that I love, but big or small purchases it all adds up in the end!!  For us girls no longer in school the beginning of Fall no longer brings with it back to school shopping, so instead I like to go jump into Fall shopping! It’s time for sweaters, boots , scarfs and warm colors! Here are my top jump into Fall wish list must haves!!

Lucca Couture Corduroy Circle Skirt from Urban Outfitters!

I have it in the light blue jean from last year and I am obsessed with it so a corduroy one would be perfect for Fall!

So I am aware that a cropped tee doesn’t exactly scream Fall but I am a cat lady at heart and this would be so fun to go out in!
