Spending Southern California's extremely brief winter hibernating in this amazing faux fur coat by White Crow. I suppose virtually every young women's retailer has some sort of leopard coat, but none has proved to be as staple-worthy as this.

INSPIRATION: WATERCOLORS



So a million (extremely stressful!) changes are going on in every corner of my life--you'll hear more about it later--but coming back to art for a recharge of inspiration is always so refreshing. I've decided to step away from the usual tumblr for said inspo, and browsed online galleries. As you may know from my header and previous posts, something about watercolors really stands out to me. I just love the layering of tones and colors and how ethereal they can appear. I've chosen my favorites above from here at Saatchi. They collections and archives of different mediums and styles are endless. I seriously cannot wait until I graduate, so I can take some time off, pick up my paintbrushes, and as humanists call it, get back into my flow activities.

So my life has been a total stress ball as of late, but you'll hear more about all that goodness (or whack-ness!) later. I update Tarte Vintage's instagram every day--and probably with more personal posts than necessary--so tune into that as well! But anyways, these were shot a little bit ago after a little ride up to the canyons. Can't wait til the weather warms up. AND posts from NYFW will be up soon! ~Stay thirsty~

MUTED

Zolando Valentine's Day Outfit Guide


This Valentine's Day I formed outfit inspiration around my favorite perfume, the classic Chloe scent, and a clean, semi-transparent wash of pink nail color, Ballet Slippers by Essie. Firstly, I picked out some key pieces (available at Zalando and Shopcade). Instead of going straight for pink, I paired a bold pastel moto jacket with a mint pleated mini. For the touch of muted rose/pink, I chose for either the Oakwood leatherette shopper or peep toe. For lips, as you could probably tell, I love a bright contrast, so I went with a staple of mine, Morange by MAC.

In a first attempt to streamline my wardrobe, the first step, of course, is a set of staple basics. Everlane offers nothing short of that, so I was incredibly excited to receive a set of my own. I love the versatility of this white, semi-cropped tee, detailed with a breast pocket. I've scoured the racks of Helmut Helmut Lang and even T by Alexander Wang with no luck of attaining the perfect silhouette (since ditching the hi-low hem, that is). So in love with my newest addition!
