(American Apparel sweetheart two tone minidress)
Sometimes it feels good to lie around your backyard in a neon pink minidress (which btw I recommend to all who want to release their inner ice skater). To be honest, the randomness of what I wear around our place and the surrounding 100 foot radius is alarming. The UPS guy finds this pretty entertaining. Last time he came around he asked me, “So how big exactly is your shoe closet?”
Hmm..more like one trunk, two racks, multiple hanging organizers, a brimming car trunk, and still a surplus that invades the floor beneath the kitchen counter. But this was too intense to explain.

Some of you may remember a most fairy tale-like experience I had in Paris back in March thanks to designer of Ungaro Esteban Cortazar. He was as charming and fun as he was generous with his time for me and Colin – from getting to see his show at the Louvre (if you must know, the invitations are propped up on my dresser next to all my jewelry) to having dinner at George’s complete with a Kanye sighting, he made our time unforgettable. He was sweet enough to send me some of my favorite pieces from his fall collection to play around with…this dripping-in-chains angora hoodie was one of the most gasp inducing looks for me. I honestly removed it from the package as if it was an ancient fossil of sorts and Colin agreed upon trying it on that it was just ridiculously good. Complete with a two-way zipper, fierce little shoulder pads, and an extra slouchy hood, there’s pretty much nothing I can think of that wouldn’t look amazing with it, or the strawberry red clutch for that matter. Thank you Esteban, much love from California to Paris!

Weekend lounging in some new favorites..
Friday I had the unbelievable opportunity to model as well as style a spring style guide with Revolve. With previous issues having been styled by industry giants such as Rachel Zoe and Eric Daman from Gossip Girl, I was more than a little nervous but that faded into excitement when I arrived at their studio in downtown LA and got to pore over and pick from racks and racks of amazing pieces. Some favorites included the zipper back boot by Minimarket, a pair of Wayne culotte shorts, a Complex Geometries tunic, a Larsen Gray gray jersey cutout dress, a unicorn print crop top, and some brightly printed dresses perfect for the warmer weather. I posted some behind the scenes photos complete with teased out-to-there hair on Twitpic if you want to check them out. Thank you so much to the fun and talented team at Revolve!
Mama and me in London. Wish I could spend today with you!

Well a minor trim turned into waving goodbye to a couple inches…this is why I hate having anyone touch my hair. Whatever..it grows faster in the warmer months anyway.
Springtime is essentially when I, along with the the bulk of femalekind, indulge myself in my favorite florals. I have a small collection of pieces that I’m satisfied enough with not to feel the pressure to expand – mainly a Forever21 cotton bustier, an unevenly hemmed floaty vintage number, the infamous Kate Moss pansy print, and now this perfect little tribute to the ’90s. Speaking of which, Chasing Amy is on IFC right now and an infantile Affleck and Joey Lauren Adams in a mesh top are requiring my attention..
