Class Act Skort, Emmeline Loop Knit Cardigan c/o Missguided, Seychelles Heels

One of the best things about the location of my studio it that it's around the corner from a little spot that has THE best bean & cheese burritos. Ever.  As a vegetarian, I'm pretty much restricted to b&c burritos and quesadillas a Mexican eateries, so it's safe to say I've almost exhausted both dishes. This bean & cheese, however, is a staple. Food ramblings aside, I seriously love my plaid Class Act Skort. It takes on the construction of the omnipresent Zara skort with its own twist of timeless plaid.

DELPOZO

Untitled

This Friday I'm writing about my newest brand discovery, Delpozo.  They focus on feminine-inspired pieces, my favorite being the boxy yet elegant silhouettes. Dresses often feature floral or butterfly patterns on sheer fabrics, giving an ethereal and unforgettable complexion. Their shoes, however, were the highlight for me in my fashion brand discovery. The eye-catching colors and finishes and absolutely my cup of tea. The slightly holographic glow and block-like heels are timeless. Moreover, each collection tells its own story. You can scope out a day in the life with Creative Director Josep Font for more insight. I'm planning to visit Spain later this year, so fingers crossed I make it for Madrid Fashion Week!

PICKWICK & WELLER



This month I teamed up with Pickwick & Weller to launch #PickWell. They are a master of basic (read: essential) tees, and with the #PickWell campaign, you can tag your inspirations on instagram with #Pickwell and get $10 off said tees. Easy as that! But for the full nitty gritty, here's a comprehensive--and extremely visually pleasing!--explanation of it all. Above are three of the posts I contributed: 1) painting with watercolors (as you all probably know), 2) trips on the open road, and 3) interior design.

Below, I picked out my favorites from other insty users:

Nasgia PVC Mini Skirt,  Filipina Fluffy Heart Jumper, & Emmeline Loop Knit Cardigan all c/o Missguided, Clarity Transparent Clutch

I was super excited to pick out some of my favorite pieces from Missguided's online store, but in reality, it was pretty difficult as there's so much to choose from! I love this year-round staple, my Emmeline Loop Knit Cardigan. It proved to be an impeccable source of insulation for this winter, yet it also is loopy and open-knit enough for the coming Spring. AND I still can't get over me laying eyes on a baby blue vinyl skirt. I've never specifically searched for this item, but in the wise words of Savage Garden, I knew I loved it before I met it.

DECEMBER #TARTEWALK



One More Time Dress, Zara heels, Chanel purse

Tarte Vintage #TarteWalk Tarte Walk shoptarte downtown Santa Ana Artwalk shoptarte.com

[From Tarte Vintage's blog]: On December 7th we had our holiday party and sample sale, and had a mini celebration my birthday. I detailed the party with all my personal favorites, from the music (Astronautica, Ages, and more), to the kawaii-inspired snacks & sweets bar. We had grilled cheese and tomato soup samplers, candy, and a drink list inspired by everyone's favorite Parks & Rec characters. And of course, the night wouldn't have been the same without our awesome vendors! Scope out the photos below.
