Hiiii. Seriously, so sorry it's been so long. (To whom am I saying sorry? Myself, probably.) So much has been going on. The tragic "victory" of our current president elect *barff*; my day job, Nasty Gal, filing for bankruptcy, the holidays in general, planning a huge birthday trip, attempts to maintain a normal social life, and everything that comes with. That being said, I'm on my way back to posting regularly on the b00btube again (!!!), with my last video being a Halloween tutorial that actually contains one of my favorite makeup looks ever, and it can totally be worn any time of the year. Check it out above & subscribe to my channel for more.





Joe's Jeans The Olivia c/o Zappos, Steve Madden Webster c/o Zappos, repurposed mesh tank, vintage Coach backpack and cardigan

The downside of rainy days: frizzy hair, when your dog gets wet, no farmers market. The upside: Perfectly diffused light for photos, neck-and-neck with dare I say, the 5 o'clock golden hour. I took advantage of the pause in precipitation to snap my favorite duo as of late: my Olivia cropped jeans and Webster boots. The fit of these jeans is a first for me: mid-rise, cropped flare, and delicate distressing at the knee. The height of the shaft of my boots hits in just the right spot, while still allowing my characteristically sparkly and/or pastel socks to peek out (in this case, gold lurex). Both are from Zappos, whom I can always trust to have unmatchable customer service, a 1-year return policy, and huge range of style selections to choose from.

Hudson Jodi High Waist Flare Jeans c/o Zappos, Vagabond boots, vintage Coach backpack

Temps are finally dropping in SoCal (kind of), so I paired this super extra-but-amazing sheer tulle top with sleek flared denim by Hudson. Because of the intricate lace neckline and my standout red boots, I had somewhat of rodeo clown in the desert vibe but I'm 100^% OK with the result. Love that I was able to experiment with a different jean silhouette--flared leg (I'm usually a skinny high waist or full-blown mom jean)--with the reassurance of Zappos' 1-year return policy and superb customer service. Thanks, dudes!
