FASHION FRIDAY ... The Pic in the Pic

Today's Look
Coat & Bag: Zara
Trousers: H&M
Booties: Loeffler Randall
Body Suite: American Apparel
Vest: Heavenly Couture
Sunnies: Thierry Lasry via Dan Deustch

We are finally starting to see a glimpse of fall.. and naturally this means that closet additions are in order.. so I took a very focused trip to Zara last week and could not resist this Chanel/Missoni inspired knit coat.  I absolutely have nothing like it in my closet..

I think for this next year of shopping adventures I will attempt to not re buy pieces too similar to the ones I already own. 

Anyone who is slightly creative knows that when a creative person craves creativity..that creativity better happen or said creative person will most likely loose it!

Both Jason G and I were dying to be more creative with this post.. so here goes..

The other day I was thinking about the days before Instagram..  which lead me to the thinking about us Instagramers now.. both bloggers and non bloggers alike and how we will pretty much anywhere with absolutely no shame start a photo shoot with ourselves..  This is my little ode to the constant self portrait..


The Pic in the Pic..  Hope it inspires you the way it inspired us..  or at least makes you chuckle.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Taye ;)

Being that the temperature is still hitting close to 90 degees on most days lately in L.A.  I thought I would take advantage of some spring/summer peices that have not seen the light of day in a while and why not go with hues in the family of pink..  

Especially of you are going to go all menswear inspired and from the ankle down I went full on man!

FASHION FRI.. SATURDAY...Scratching the itch..

 FASHION FRIDAY SATURDAY

Jeans: Goldsign (gifted)
Turban: LUBLU (gifted)
Arrow Ring and Bracelet: Penny Royal Via Caro Marketing (gifted)
Necklace: Stella & Dot Via BWRPR (gifted)

Let me first state that I wrote the blog yesterday.. It was super cute, catchy and full of humor.. and then Blogger had a meltdown.. at least on my computer!

First a Video Diary to brighten our day:

Fashion Friday.. .Video Diaries..Mom Jeans.. from Taye Hansberry on Vimeo.

Okay now that that is out the way.. I shall attempt to recapture the essence of what I wrote..

It went a little something like this..

Sometimes I get the urge to dress like my mother did in the 1970's.. thus when I get an itch...the 1970's and 1980's rear their pretty little heads.

In come the Goldsign Scandal wide leg bell bottom jeans..   I've been sitting on these Goldsigns for a few months now dying to wear them..  I finally got a minute to get them hemmed!  Alas... They are so super soft, yummy and they have the added advantage of making  you look like you are 10 feet tall..  Grab them HERE
..And for those of you who follow me on instagram. You are very familiar with my lust with this LNA tank.  For some reason this is the first time it has made it on to FASHION FRIDAY.. which today is FASHION SATURDAY..(read the disclaimer at the beginning of this post if you happen to scroll right to this section)  It's seriously my go to.. Grab it HERE
The Penny Royal Bracelet and ring have not left my side since I got them.. Sometimes you need a little anchor in your life.. (linked above)
The LUBLU turban/headband was given to me when I attended the amazing LUBLU SS2013 presentation at NYFW.  Bad hair day.. throw on a little head gear.

The Tom Ford Sunnies are straight awesome sauce!.. So big that you can hide a night of drunken debauchery with the flick of a wrist..


..and now you can:

That did quite capture the awesomeness of the original post.. but you get the point..

Have a Fantasmic weekend everyone..

Dinner in NYC...Beauty & Essex..



New York Fashion week was a non stop ride of shows, parties, showrooms, lounges and bumpy taxi rides attempting to find locations..  But in the midst of it all I was able to indulge in an evening of amazing food, drinks and ambiance thanks to Domain Pr in the form of Beauty & Essex.

Here's a tiny back story..

LUBLU by Kira Plastinina.. New York Fashion Week SS 2013

About a month ago I had what I call a dreamy Saturday.  Dreamy in the since that sometimes you stumble upon a day where you meet amazing people who inspire you to do better..  

That particular dreamy day I met Kira Plastinina.. designer at 14 and now at 20 has an awesome line and chain of boutiques called LUBLU.. and during Fashion Week I attended the LUBLU presentation at the Four Seasons hotel.

LUBLU SS2013 is absolutely beautiful..
