Holding On: Extra Photos

These are some photos I took in my backyard on the same day as Holding On
I was trying to capture the last glimpse of autumn before the winter season.
I used a 'pop art' setting on my digital camera to capture and enhance the bold colors.

Holding On

 I wore this outfit last week when it was actually cold outside. I was pretty excited to break out my Forever 21 coat and my 'newly thrifted' sweater.

It's too bad, we're expecting a few more days of 80 degree summer weather down the road.
I feel as if the Californian summer to fall transition is dragging on. Even though it is nearly winter, there is a sense of hesitation in the air. The last summer blooms are hanging onto their stems, deciduous trees don't want to drop their colorful leaves just yet, and the slightest morning frost instantly melts into glistening dew drops under the glow of the sun.

That was my failed attempt to be a poetic, misunderstood teenager, sorry.

Coat :: Forever 21
Skinny Jeans (rolled up) :: Nordstrom
Combat Boots :: DSW
Sweater :: Goodwill (tag says J.Crew)
Pashmina scarf :: Gifted
Earrings :: Gifted (From 'Something Silver' in Dow town Disney I believe)

More pictures from this shoot coming soon!

Style Icon: Stacy London

This is going to sound very strange/creepy/extraordinary, however, I remember Stacy London being in one of my dreams last night.

So... in my dream, I met Stacy & we were best friends! Well, kind of.
I saw this as the perfect opportunity to do another Style Icon post!
Check out my previous Style Icon posts by clicking the tab up there^!

Is a pro stylist & fashion consultant,
Co-host of TLC's What Not To Wear,
Author, editor, co-founder of Style for Hire,
And one of my biggest inspirations not only in the fashion world but also among women.

(Pictures featured in this post do not belong to me)

I love how animated Stacy is! She's not afraid get excited and be a little quirky! She looks smokin' in this red dress. The matching lipstick surprisingly works on her!

Here is the unbeatable duo of Stacy London with Clinton Kelly, the other co-host of WNTW. (a.k.a. my fave TV show) I love the edgy-meets-feminine look Stacy is sporting here. The silhouette and bodice is feminine, but the color palette & print is more edgy. I have mixed feelings about that wallpaper though.

I had to include this picture because my mom almost bought this exact dress at Ann Taylor. Crazy, right? I like how the dress is paired with a hot pink belt- it is instantly transformed. And that mega-watt smile :D

Love this retro-inspired dress with collar detail. Black & white makes for a timeless style.

Again, classic black & white, but this time paired with a statement necklace, watch and maroon blazer.

I like to think that Stacy London is one of those people who can pull off any color. She's so gorgeous!
