I seem to be somewhat obsessed with the color pink or any version of the color pink lately. I think I have had a tremendous urge to be super feminine..which does not always come easy for me. So I think Pink is the perfect color to add a touch of feminine flair to your look.. It's also just such a happy color..
Have you ever looked that the color pink and had feeling of depression? NOPE!!
The Button Up
I love this top... such great elements..Button up, sheer, soft and over sized so there are a number of ways to wear it. I decided to tuck it behind my belt to give it a sort of draped feel.
I have had my Love Story jeans for about three years...and I LOVE them..they are so amazing that J brand actually still sells them..pretty rare in this ever fleeting fashion industry.
Okay so all that know me know that I am not a huge fan of real fur..however this coat has been in my family since before I was born. My grandma gave it to me years ago.. In the past I have been very conflicted about wearing it..but then I had a little chat with myself... This is how I see it:
This fur was made in a time where fur was a very acceptable piece of clothing. The poor little guy was killed for it..it's vintage and there is nothing I can do about it. However call me a hypocrite, but I would NEVER EVER buy a new fur coat. Although beautiful it is very disturbing the way many animals are killed for their fur..especially white fur. So if you already have a fur..I say honor that animal by wearing it..but from this day forward buy Faux!!
Okay those were my deeper thoughts of the day :)
The Pocket Book
Now to the H&M Pocket Book, which is actually not even mine..My darling friend Lauren Preston let me borrow it one day to wear on a last minute dinner I was headed to from her house and some how it has never made it back to her...that was like 6 months ago...Sorry Lauren!! But I love it and I do wear it from time to time...Guilt ridden the whole time of course ;) If you love it H&M has very similar ones right now that are just as cute...click here to see
This Shepard Fairy May Day wall is so beautiful...There were a couple of choices to shoot in front of but this one on Melrose was a winner by far.. To buy a May Day poster print go to http://obeygiant.com/prints/flag-1-offset#more-13027
On another note: My bestie Courtney K has decided to move to New York..so he will be moving in with me tomorrow for a month before he leaves. (Sniffles)...but during this month there will be definite fun times.. I'll keep you posted..
The Oscars are this Sunday and we are going to have a get together at casa Stuff She Likes. I'll let you know how it goes..we have big plans to bake these insane Pumpkin Cheesecake cupcakes (click here for recipe). I will be tweeting a play by play.. wish us luck!!
Oh and feel free to twitter me (here) if you decide to bake them..would love to know how they turn out!
Well all ...Have a fantastic weekend where ever you are...
