I don’t know about you, but boucle knits just scream “wintertime” to me. This sweater is the perfect example of “comfort is style” as it is this easiest thing to style and wear. I’ve been drowning myself in all its cozy glory ever since. A huge shout out to my friends at Refunktion Apparel for keeping me warm all winter long. What I love about Refunktion is that all their clothes are vintage pieces brought to new life. They are completely redesigned to fit the lifestyle of the modern girl. Not only does Refunktion bring great fashion to the masses, but it also aims to plant a tree with every purchase. Seriously, how many companies can you say do that? It is rare to stumble upon a company whose story not only revolves around fashion, but to make a difference in the world.
On another note, I just recently had my hair done by the ever so talented Emma Klabo. With her help and patience, I’ve achieved the perfect Grey Ombre I’ve always hoped for. It’s safe to say that I’ll be a loyal client of hers as I am indebted to her forever! If you find yourself in the South Bay, she’s the one to talk to.

I don’t usually do color, but I thought I’d start expanding my horizons and go a little outside the box. When I saw this coat, I could not resist it’s color, texture, and it’s almost-cocoon-like shape. I also really enjoy the fact that they are no fussy buttons or zipper details, besides the pockets of course. It’s a clear minimalistic feature that I find myself always drawn to.

Culottes = the perfect mix between a midi skirt and wide leg pants. They give off a very refined chic vibe all the while being comfortable and looking effortless at the same time. Besides my new love for culottes, the weather has not been so cooperative lately so I’ve found myself living in this trench coat for the past two weeks. The lapels drape so perfectly, it surprises me that this piece was made by UNIF. UNIF being known for all its “badass-ery” and what not, I was kind of glad to stumble upon a more sophisticated piece such as this. Another deal-breaker was the fact that I found the coat in the sale section at my local Urban Outfitters. I guess I came on the perfect day because they were giving an extra 50% off of all sale items as well. Score!
As for life in general, school has been really kicking my butt lately and I cannot wait until all my finals are over. Just two more weeks and I’ll be home free (just for another two weeks at least). Can the holidays come any sooner?

Boyfriend jeans and white collar button-ups. Shit might look basic, but I like things straight-up and to the point. Quoting The Weeknd on this – “This the shit that I live for!” (Insert emoji ‘praise’ hands here)
My all-time favorite has to be Fall. Everything from the holidays, pumpkin spice, and oh yes, the layering! I live for t-shirts under flannels under sweaters under cardigans under jackets with boots and the socks and etc. etc. etc. I live for days when it is completely fashionably acceptable to look like a human burrito and walk outside the door. Sweater weather has finally arrived in California, so you best believe I’ll be doing just that. As seen in my last post, I’ve adopted a new color into my wardrobe. Can you say, “Orange is the New Black.” By the way, I’ve also just hopped onto the bandwagon and started binge-watching the show on Netflix. I must say that it is brilliant! This red-orange cropped turtleneck and plaid flannel skirt make the perfect bold pairing if I should say so myself. I also topped everything off with this fur shearling jacket and black leather thigh highs to bring some Kate Moss vibes into the mix. There’s nothing like the perfect thigh boot to make you feel sexy without revealing too much.

With Halloween just one day, I came up with three dark, edgy, and badass outfits for all you badass babes out there. These are all inspired by some of my favorite movies and characters growing up. And of course I chose to go with a Black & White theme because really, do I wear anything else?! Enjoy <3
