croc-odilly


jacket: LF dakota - sweater: james perse - tank: michael stars - jeans: paige - boots: YOU by CROCS {via CROCS, gifted} - necklaces: various

i was introduced to this brand new CROCS line {yes, like the rubber clog crocs...} called YOU by Crocs which are real shoes - and bare NO resemblance to their rubber relative!  i received these grey boots to try out -- and guess what?! they are great!!  i will be the first to admit that i was crazily skeptical until i slid my foot onto the amazing contoured foot bed and after that i actually ended up wearing them for a good 8 hours AND got a million compliments on!!  not too bad for only about $100 - especially if you are employed in a position that requires you to stand in nice looking shoes for long periods of time...check out these chikata boots and many more here!!

and i absolutely cannot forget to mention that MY FAVORITE JACKET EVER is still the DAKOTA from LF...ahh.  so in love!!

pamella roland


after battling the flu/a cold/everything bad this past week and missing a lot {all} of LA fashion week i was very excited that this weekend i had a chance to attend the 19th annual SANDPIPER fashion show featuring designer pamella devos and her pamella roland fall 2011 collection at the beverly hills wilshire.  it was an astonishing mix of sparkles and chiffon that flowed gracefully down the runway.  a strong asian influence was apparent throughout the draping ball gowns and cocktail frocks and the looks were perfect for just about everything.

the finale piece, this gorgeous red coat, was hand painted with japanese flowers and was truly the most stunning piece of the collection.



see more photos of this collection after the jump! enjoy!!! xo

STYLIN'

this past saturday i had the opportunity to be a part of Two Point Oh! LA's spring style event at the south bay galleria.  each stylist was assigned a store and tasked with assembling outfits fit for spring while passersby (and friends and family) texted to vote for their favorite look.  i used clothing from The Limited and created looks that could transition from day to night and a few lazy weekend outfits - and guess what?! i won!!! thank you for the crazy amount of support i received and make sure to check out the online contest here!! {insert one of 103498349873 reasons to vote for me and The Limited...} it is quick and easy and will make me super happy :)
