Valentino, etc.

I've been a fan of all things Valentino rockstud since the very debut and inception. But when turquoise stones were added to the metal mix, I was like Ha, this has got to be mine. Immediately. And ever since laying my hands on this bag, it's become a neutral

that aren't boring

Eggs are a life staple and essential. Practically like water. They're a great source of protein, therefore are an important starting point to all things breakfast and beyond. And...what would brunch be without a scramble, omelette, frittata, quiche, fried egg on avocado toast, and yeah--you get the point.

Studio 54 Edition

Sometimes (but only sometimes), less is more. That doesn't go with my mood on New Year's though. The more, the better. Sparkles? Yes! All of them. And then some. So this round, I rung in 2017 a la Saint Laurent, celebrating in proper Studio 54 and disco theme. Anyways,

A Year in Review

It's Been Real, 2016

Every year, I delve into the outfit archive and pull out some of my favorite outfits from each month. It gives me a good snapshot of what I wore, some pieces I can't live without, and where I was out and about each month. It gives me a solid overview of the year that is coming to a close, and in turn makes
