MAC Make Up Fit for a Pro..

FASHION FRIDAY.. Layered Up

 FASHION FRIDAY
 Today's Look
SweatShirt: Timeless on Melrose
Romper: Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent
Bag: Christoper Kon (gifted)
Shoes: TopShop
Watch: IceBrand (gifted)
Jewelry: Tiffany Kunz Jewelry (c/o)
Layers upon layers.. I've worn this jumper three times this week.. Styled very differently each time..Thanks to layering..  I've had it for a while.  One of my favorite pieces because its super versatile..  Versatility.. The word of the day.. Especially with so many of us headed out to the desert this weekend to bask in the festivities of Coachella..  

Versatility in packing...Versatility in life.  Those two are not mutually exclusive right?  At least not in my brain... Who's with me??
Okay speaking of versatility.. I adore my new Christopher Kon Bag.. The awesome folks at C.K. (not to be confused with that other CK) sent over this beauty and a cobalt blue style that I am dying to wear..  Perfect leather..perfect size.. perfect ..say it with me...VERSATILITY!  There is a nifty little snap inside the bag that converts it into a totally different shape.. So cutie!
..and speaking of VERSATILITY again.. I got to hang out at Tiffany Kunz Jewelry studio for a couple hours yesterday.. I adore her jewelry.. something about its simplified artistry is so beautiful and timeless.  We are crafting up something super special in the near future.. stay tuned!  Super excited!

Have a spankin good weekend!
 

VERSATILITY... I "Like"

OUTFIT TUESDAY.. Not in Lew of...

 OUTFIT TUESDAY
 The Look
Pants: H&M Conscious collection
Jacket: SugarLips
Shirt: Rails


So I am not going to label this OUTFIT TUESDAY post "In lew of"  as I have done a few times in the past when life catches up and shooting doesn't happen..  

What I will say is that while sitting on this shoot which was a product of mere passing the time at 7:30am on the lot of the KTLA Morning News studios a few weeks back... We thought why not? And for today I though "oh hec yeah!"

Cute boy's in suits and me in my new favorite H&M conscious collection pants.  How could we go wrong.  We definitely marveled at the fact that we look like a band that plays some type of cross over indie/pop music.  I imagine myself playing base or something to that effect.... Okay I am really loosing focus here... FOCUS TAYE FOCUS...  This seems to be a constant in my universe lately.  The band thing not the focus thing..

Anyhow..

Lets go over what the boys are wearing..

Starting from left to right:

Andres:  The handsome model/creator/writer  (he hates when I call him a model even though he works constantly as a model) is in head to toe Klein Epstein & Parker..  Oh yeah and Dolce & Gabbana shoes..

Peter:  The Super talented Film Maker/Model is also in Klein Epstein & Parker. Shoes models own

Devin:  Freshly transplanted to L.A. is in a Leather jacket by Blaine Label, Shirt Pants and and shoes H&M and Tie Mister L.B.

All four of us styled by yours truly.. I guess the universe is nudging me to come out of Styling Hibernation..

Still thinking on it.. once a stylist always a stylist.


Happy Tuesday!!

Outfit Inspo.. Sweats and such..

Outfit Inspo.. Sweats and such..



I often think about how the words Monday and Mundane are to darn close in sound.  How could anyone adore Monday when it sounds so much like mundane..  At least according to the laws of attraction..

Thus I think it only fitting to add a little not so mundane inspiration to this Monday..

I give you Monday morning outfit inspo..  

Today we shall gather around a good old pair of sweats.. Super stylish ones of course..(yes I know the sweats are the smallest item on the page..but just bare with me)

These Particular pair hail from 

Take a great pair of sweats and pull them from day to night with a swipe of liquid liner.. a sky high heel and a chic clutch.. (as seen above in my carefully crated collage)

So here is the idea..  Pair your sweats with some not so obvious choices..  ie.. heels..oxfords...a nice cotton button up..

Okay let me put it simply.. 

Sweats + sneakers = The Gym
     Sweats + oxfords = Chic daytime 
 Sweats + Heels = Sexy night 


BTW  a good floral blazer can take one's self esteem so far..just sayin!

Shop the sweats above..shop the rest below..

     

...and have a not so mundane Monday!

FASHION FRIDAY..The Moral of the Story is..

FASHION FRIDAY
  Today's Look
Top: Guess (gifted)
Blazer: Stella McCartney
Jeans: Bleulab (gifted)
Shoes: Sergio Rossi
Bag: Asos
Ring: Feliks and Adrik (gifted)
Sometimes nostalgia can spark a flame...and that flame burns inspiration..and that inspiration leads to an outfit for a dinner meeting....  Okay I know you thought this was going in some deep spiritually gratifying direction.. but really it's just a dinner outfit.. sparked by a little Guess nostalgia.

Oh the Nostalgia..

This beautiful Guess top arrived and I was itching to do it justice..which in actuality it's one of those finds that does itself justice.. Really no Taye needed..
I've always adored the combination of blue and black..  an always and ever chic duo weather it's a dress, a jumper or a beautiful gown.  If you ever find your self standing at your closet with only minutes to spare.. whip out a combo of blue and black and bam...instant chic for any occasion.
Both the blazer and the shoes in this post are the poster children for why buying classic pieces makes for wardrobe winners.  This Stella McCartney Blazer bought on sale at least 4 years ago still pops every thing I wear it with.. It's timeless.

And the Sergio Rossi pumps older than the blazer.. again.. Timeless and classic..
This Nasty Gal bag is the poster child for "you don't have to spend rent to carry a great bag".  An awesome bag doesn't necessarily always have to have an enormous price tag attached to a huge designer label to be stellar.. I'm pretty sure I got this one for about 40 bucks. 
And the Bleulabs..2 for one.. Reversible and Priceless!
So the moral of this story folks...

Buy High and Low... Grab the high on sale..Stay as classic as possible.. and wear pieces that bring about a bit of personal nostalgia.  GOT IT?  GOOD!

SHOP THE LOOK

Now get out there and have a great weekend!


P.S.  The MeChar Python Clutch Giveaway ends tomorrow night .. if you haven't already
