I’m A Barbie Girl

Moschino barbie spring 2015 runway

Barbie and I have been in a forever relationship since I was able to pick up a doll and know what I was doing with it. Together we went on adventures through fashion and plastic friendships. It’s safe to say that when Barbie decided to go fashion blogger on us via her recently launched instagram account (@barbiestyle), I knew we were a match made in Mattel heaven. Because the only reasonable next step would be to bring Barbie’s style to the “real world” Jeremy Scott, took Moshino’s Spring ’15 collection to new hot pink and roller blade heights.

There were 56 looks, including Jeremy Scott’s closing look which was a simple tee reading “MOSCHINO FOR AGES 5 AND OVER”. I shutter to know how much it will cost but know in the depths of my soul that if I owned it, my life would be a happier place. These are a few (more than a few) of my favorite Barbie looks from the runway.

Of course Barbie got her own personalized and fitted Moschino look. I’m telling you, this bitch has everything. If you happen to have a trust fund set aside for such purchases, Jeremy Scott made this line ready to wear, and you can find some of your favorite Barbie runway pieces right over here. I want that $85 Barbie mirror iphone case more than I’d care to admit.

And, if like me, you don’t have a trust fund set aside for such things but still want to participate in what is surely Barbie mania, Forever 21 had a Barbie collection out right now, as if they knew what was happening before it even happened. They have cuter stuff in stores. There’s also one Barbie sweater that I’ve seen on five billboards and am on a major man(sweater)hunt for at the moment.

So, how into Barbie are you? And should I get that phone case? I need serious help people.

6 Instagram Quotes to Make You Think

I'd rather be sorry than safe instagram quotes

Instagram is consistently a beacon for inspiration and when I’m not admiring the totally gorgeous photos, I’m eating up every last word of the quotes that pop up on my feed. Sometimes quotes make you feel good about yourself, sometimes they make you feel like shit, and sometimes they make you stop for a second and think. These are some of my favorite “stop and make you think” quotes. Wednesdays have a tendency to, for lack of a better phrase, be a bitch, so there’s no better time than a day like today to get a little inspired and then be on your way.  (totally a poet and I didn’t even know it situation. Am I right or am I right?)

A Canadian Tuxedo In Boston

We (my family and I)  just got to Boston last night (Saturday), hello exciting, so today (Sunday) was a a day of major walking filled with countless mini adventures into various art shops, bakeries, clothing stores, and the like. We discovered the SOWA Market and gorged ourselves on brownies, donuts, coffee and hard cider. Clearly, it was a day for the healthy inclined. When I wasn’t stuffing my face, I was admiring the sea of brick walls and falling in love.

For Boston day 1, it was a smidge chilly so pants and a long sleeve shirt were utterly necessary for my survival. I’ve only rocked a Canadian tuxedo once before, but Boston just seemed like a classy enough place to give it a go a la Canadian tuxedo 2.0. My espadrille sneakers were about as comfy as it got for the just under 20k steps we took (my dad has an app for that) and I was just warm enough to not complain.

Did I mention how happy brick walls make me? So happy in fact, that my sister and I are currently mastering the art of being one with the wall…

Losers Do It Better

Unif Loser Sweater Free People Slip jeffrey campbell coltrain boots fall style los angeles street style

Although I’ve been taunted with the idea of fall via every September issue laying on my floor right now, in Los Angeles, seasons change less frequently than the menu board at Starbucks. So, on Monday, when I woke up to a slight chill and a few clouds, I didn’t care what the actual temperature was outside, I knew I was wearing a sweater. Not just any sweater, THIS glorious Unif sweater!

I played my sale game and won big time on this guy, but that also meant I bought it just as temperatures were reaching 80 degrees on the daily, and I certainly wasn’t going to wear this sweater then. So that fateful Monday came and went and although it still reached mid 80′s, no one could ruin my new sweater high.

What I’m Wearing: Unif sweater (on sale for $75) | Free People slip (similar on sale for $50) (similar $68) | Jeffrey Campbell coltrane boots | so much jewelry | Ray Ban sunglasses (similar $175 // always get Ray Bans on sale!!)

Now on the topic of Losers Doing It Better. I don’t really know what “it” is, but I know that blondes do it better, brunettes do it better, and sometimes redheads do it better. But beyond hair color, to the best of my knowledge, no one group has been called out to “do it better.” I figured losers deserve a spot in the limelight for a sec or two, so, from here on out, if anyone asks, losers do it better!
