GREAT LENGTHS


Good morning, Everyone! How was your weekend? 

Well, it's official, I said I will never complain about Cali weather for as long as I live... and I am about to break this promise! Sure, I am more of a Summer person and warm, sunny days make me as happy as can be. But, and there is a really BIG BUT here, once the temperatures soar to 104 degrees Fahrenheit (or 40 degrees Celsius) that is where I draw the line!:) It's been like this for the past couple of days, so being outside pretty much feels like taking a nice long walk in a blazing hot steam room. In other words, not pretty at all! 

To add insult to injury, I did a bit of shopping while I was in New York last week, and got the cutest sweaters and boots for Fall. The thought of which makes me cringe a little right now, considering it's been so hot in LA lately, I would gladly parade around town in my bathing suit:) Of course, since swimwear is not exactly appropriate attire to run around LA, I've resorted to the next best thing, i.e. my silk Calypso caftan. I also got it while I was in New York, mainly because I loved the shape and the print but now, I have a completely new appreciation for how light and airy it is. Wearing it feels like you're wearing nothing at all! And considering LA weather lately, wearing nothing at all feels like a pretty good idea at the moment:)!

TOYING WITH TRANSPARENCY


Good morning and happy weekend, Everyone! So, I am back in LA and a little sad Fashion Week is over. Yet this was the very first Fashion Week Emil and I didn't attend together. After being together for 8.5 years and married for a little over 7, this was the first time we spent a week apart. Technically speaking spending 7 days apart shouldn't be a big deal at all, but we are a little attached at the hip, or a lot attached if you ask most of our friends, so saying we are happy to be back at each other's side is a bit of an understatement:) 

I came back from New York on Thursday a little sick and a little jet legged, but mostly probably tired, so we had a quiet evening at home. By Friday, however, I was back in a fighting shape, well mostly back:) So, we decided to go out for dinner to one of our favorite restaurants in downtown LA. I don't know whether I'm still in Fashion Week mode, but I just didn't feel like dressing down, so I jumped at the chance to take one of my favorite dresses on the town. Now, when I say one of my favorite dresses, I actually mean my favorite dress of all time! Seriously! I am absolutely obsessed with this dress and drive myself crazy trying to decide what I like about it the most! Is it the lace skirt, or the beading or perhaps the light-as-air-fabric it's made of, or maybe it's all of the above, but regardless of what it is in actuality, I find it completely irresistible and have a very difficult time wearing anything else. I already have all these outfits planned out involving this dress, for example I think it would look so cool paired with a chunky knit, so I hope you won't mind too much seeing it on this blog over and over again:)

NEW YORK - I LOVE YOU!

Good morning, Everyone! I hope your week is going great so far! 

I suppose I want to start by saying I love New York and I especially love New York during Fashion Week. This city is always magical of course, but the kind of infectious energy that seems to take over the city during fashion week is simply indescribable, and to be quite honest with you, this same energy takes over me as well. Though I get up super early, especially taking into consideration the 3-hour time difference between LA and New York and pretty much go, go, go all day long, I never feel tired! Every morning starts with a feeling of sheer excitement and ends with me wishing it was the next day already so that I can get up and do it all over again! 

So, as I was getting ready to shoot this outfit, which just so happens to be one of my favorite looks, I decided to do something a little different and share a few images documenting my adventures during fashion week. By the way, the reason why I like this outfit so much is because lately I've been obsessed with prints as well as black, white and grey color combinations. So naturally, when I spotted this dress, I knew I found exactly what I was looking for. Because I wanted to create a clean polished and modern look, I chose to pair this dress with my Nine West Amability pumps. Aside from being really comfortable, which is so important during fashion week since I am running around all day long, I love how bold and edgy they are! I think the combination of leather and suede creates a very rich texture, and of course the caged detailing in the front makes such a bold statement!
