Mod geometric print dresses

I have always been a fan of prints. Lately, I have been particularly drawn to 60s-inspired geometric prints. These are some of the versatile dresses featuring mod geometric prints that I have my eye on right now.

The waistlines on the dresses create a classic flattering and wearable silhouette. While, striking geometric prints make the dresses feel unique and fun with a strong mix of patterns, shapes and colors. All three are ideal for dressing up with heels and a blazer for the office or sandals and standout accessories for brunch with friends.

Bejeweled Shoulders

Growing up in California and especially in L.A., denim has always been a staple in my wardrobe. Even though I adore dresses, there’s something so cool about a dressed up denim look. I tend to stick to dark plain denim in flattering skinny or flared cuts. Paired with a nice T-shirt or blouse, heels and a leather jacket and I feel like I can go to almost any restaurant or bar without being over or under dressed.  

This lightweight knit top caught my eye with its unusual texture and color and bedazzled shoulders. I have worn it constantly since I got it in New York a few weeks ago. May actually be time to put it in a short-term retirement…

On a completely different note, my thoughts are with those effected by the horrifying tragedy in Boston yesterday. It was a sobering, scary and immensely sad day. It’s time’s like these when support of any kind is needed most. Here is information about how you can help victims and their families.

Jeans: Banana Republic, rhinestone top: H&M, wedges: Marni, belt: Asos, clutch: American Apparel.

Beauty note: eyelashes c/o Boudoir. I finally gave in to trying semi permanent fake eyelashes and I’m happy I did. They are amazing particularly for a special event (perfect for someone who is getting married). I have a discount for readers in the L.A. area if interested.

Wearing a Grecian-inspired dress with modern accessories and bronze-y natural makeup like Lauren Hutton at the 47th Academy Awards.

Celebrating a spring soiree with festive invitations that have a layered fringe like this.

And maybe these too. Garlic, cheese, spices and breadcrumbs stuffed brussel sprouts.

Peach and Pleats

IMG_8352_3

I am a big believer in comfortable and easy clothes. This skirt with its sheer bottom, pleats and plum color, creates a feminine and dressy look that works for day or night. I’ve worn the outfit with pointy flats to run around for work, but with satin ribbon heels, the outfit was ideal for drinks with friends.

I have a collection of lightweight crew neck sweaters and this is one of my favorites. I love the feeling of lounging around in a cozy sweatshirt. The closer I can get to wearing a sweatshirt, while still looking put together, the better.

Happy weekend! xx

Skirt: Lush, sweater: J.Crew, heels: Azzedine Alaia, beaded bag and snake necklace: vintage, gemstone bracelet: C. Wonder, v-shaped rings: Gorjana.

Small Wonders: Traveling

I’ve been traveling a lot lately. A few weeks ago, we went to Palm Springs for a relaxing weekend and came back just in time for me to take off again – this time to New York. No matter where I’m going I always get the same feeling of excitement mixed with anxiousness when I take off on a trip. There’s nothing like discovering a new destination or revisiting a favorite place away from home.

I am looking forward to staying home for the next month and then sharing a few exciting trips in May.
