My Top: A silk white blouse.
It is for sure my most frequent purchase.
I have them in several different cuts and wear them with everything.
You know the famous scene in Forest Gump, where he names all of the different ways Bubba Gump can prepare shrimp?
I feel the same ways about all the different styles I can name of white silk blouse’s.
A sleeveless, a short sleeved, a quarter sleeved, a long sleeved, a spaghetti strap, a silk chiffon, a silk satin, oh the list can go on. I think they are so easy, simple, and comfortable.
My favorite is a sleeveless v-neck by Vince.
My Bottom: A printed pant.
I missed out on pants for way too many years of my life.
I was an avid skirt wearer from ages 13-22.
As a young girl, I made the common mistake of defining classic girly-ness and sexiness by showing my legs.
Since I found the right pants 3 years ago, it’s been hard to keep me out of them.
Opening Ceremony, DFV and Marni all make great ones in wonderful prints.
My Jeans: It is a rare occurrence that I wear jeans…but if I do denim, oversized vintage Levis.
My Evening: A simple silhouette dress in an amazing print or striking bright color.
Yellow and fuchsia tones are my favorite to wear.
I also love a nice clean white.
I’m extremely experimental with prints and colors, which I think draw me to a more minimalist design in terms of silhouettes and proportions.
My Intimates: Easy and comfortable American Apparel Tri-Blend Halter Romper in Gray.
My Coat: Anything in leopard. Somehow it just always seems to work with everything in my closet.
This past Fall/Winter I lived in my Malene Birger one.
My Bag: I have to admit, I’m not a big bag girl at all.
Maybe its because I don’t carry a lot of stuff, so the idea of buying this source to hold just my phone, keys, and wallet just doesn’t grab me.
It could also be that every time I see a bag I like, I see a shoe I like…and the shoe purchase wins over the bag one in my budget.
I do love a really funky clutch though, and often wear them during the day.

My Inspiration: My daily walks of life. I see inspiration in all alleys of my journey. The potato man my son made two nights ago, the super posh women I met in Moscow the other night, the street characters on Hollywood Blvd…. When it comes to what inspires me, God has created such a beautiful playground to explore and I want to see and breath every corner I can…
