We all know black is flattering, but it’s also extremely versatile especially when it’s done head to toe. This time I’m experimenting with different textures! This “scuba” or “neoprene” fabric trend has stayed pretty strong the past couple season now. I must be honest not all neoprene items are created equally flattering. I tried a few items from different designers and felt like the fabric added bulk to my shape. However, when I decided to try these J. Brand pants out, they did not disappoint! They hug my body in all the right places. I decided to pair it with my “favorite top” as my friends label it. This Robert Rodriguez top makes me feel instantly sexy when I wear it. The material is pretty close to the scuba material so it pairs well with the pants.

I’m all about turning the runway into the realway. There are many great items that could totally work for your everyday life if you just styled them a little bit differently. I completely fell in love with this Dolce & Gabbana printed skirt when I first saw it! There are many cute ways to wear a printed midi skirt! This skirt has so many strong colors present, so I paired it with a black bodysuit and shoes to keep the colors in the skirt as the main focus. To draw out more color from the skirt try wearing a colored bag that complements the print instead. It’s always good to have a balance of colors when dealing with prints. Too much color and your items will be competing with one another instead of complimenting each other.
With the long weekend ahead there will be plenty of celebrations going on all weekend long. From a laid-back vibe to an outfit that is full on patriotic red-white-and-blue.

This past Thursday my friend Jennifer Chan hosted Bloomingdale’s Century City Summer Fashion Smash! It was a great fashion show highlighting the seasons hottest trends and showcasing how to pull them off. I’m so happy and proud of Jennifer she did such an amazing job and looked amazing while doing it! Jennifer of The Native Fox was also there to co-host the event.
My favorite outfits from the show:
One of the many reasons I love summer-time is because it’s dress season for me! A great way to maximize your closet is buy purchasing items that you can almost wear to any occasion. I recently purchased this Wilfred dress with the idea it would be great to just throw it on and go, knowing I could wear it almost anywhere. All it takes is a little bit of styling by changing your shoes and accessories you can take almost any outfit from day to night.
Almost every Sunday I go to the farmers market to get the essentials for whatever I’m cooking for the week. What I love about this dress is that it’s color-blocking. Lately I’ve been buying a lot of black and white so it easily works with things that I already have in my closet! I love carrying my Balenciaga Papier tote because it fits everything from my shopping bags for food and I can use it also for extra space if I didn’t bring enough bags with me. And it doesn’t hurt that it gives any outfit a serious pop of color. As for when it comes to shoes: flats flats flats! I seriously live in my sandal slides to the point I’m debating buying them in all colors!
For night I styled it by just putting on a pair of statement heels and paired it with a solid clutch. I love my little Roberto Cavalli alligator ear cuffs they are a conversation in its own. To give this dress a little bit more of a night feel I added a statement necklace and a red lip because I always feel a little more polished with a red lip.
I wanted to find a great all white ensemble because my Dad loves all white and wears it head to toe all the time. It being Fathers day, I’m honoring my outfit to him and his favorite thing to wear! Wearing all white is pretty easy except when it comes to jeans. At least for me it is. I’ve been on the search for the perfect pair of white jeans. Jean shopping is already extremely difficult but when you are looking for a white pair it’s about 10xs harder if you ask me! I wanted a pair of mid-rise or high waist skinny jeans that didn’t look like a legging or too thick like boyfriend jeans. This task took me about a month of trying on a ton of different brands and styles. I don’t shop that much at TopShop but I remember I got a good pair of skinny jeans when they first opened at The Grove LA. Low and behold Leigh jeans! They had “talls” so the inseam is perfect and the distressed knee holes hits perfect on my long legs (at 5’9 1/2 it’s hard to find jeans that are past the ankle length for me). I know all white is really big trend-wise right now along with mirrored sunglasses! I have been trying to step out side the box when it comes to sunglasses and have more fun with my shades instead of sticking to my classics.
