It’s possible that by the end of 2015, this blog will simply become an ode to Wildfox and all of it’s glory. But until then, I’ll just occasionally go a little (a lot) fan girl over their lookbooks. They just came out with their newest Barbie inspired line, with everything from a tee that just says “material”, can I get a YES PLEASE, to the perfect pair of circle Barbie sunnies that I’ll have to adorn my face with as soon as I get the chance, and the funds. Wake up like Barbie, workout like Barbie, drink juice like Barbie, hang out with friends like Barbie, and basically just be like Barbie. That’s what Wildfox has done for this retro-loving, nostalgia grasping, generation I’m included in, and on behalf of all of us, I say thank you. If I can’t have Moschino, I can at least have Wildfox. So, enjoy the glory that is my favorite bits and pieces of the Barbie Loves Wildfox lookbook, and if you’re craving more, find the whole thing here.
Any brands who are really killing in in the lookbook department right now? Gimme, gimme!
I’m a chocolate person. A major, major chocolate person. There are some people who love chocolate, and there are some people with an unhealthy infatuation for only the most delicious dark chocolate covered nougat, rich chocolate chip truffles, and white chocolate mint truffles. I’m the latter. I’m also the person that can’t hit up the mall without stopping by See’s for a sample and a few chocolates.
It’s safe to say when I got invited to the Fashion Island See’s opening, I was on top of the world. And then I got to pack my own box of chocolate, try whatever I wanted, and was sent off with what is possibly the world’s best goodie bag. This, my friends, is the chronicle of a chocolate lover’s wildest dreams coming true, a girl and her chocolate, if you will.
So bon bons were never on my radar, since there’s no chocolate involved, but after trying the tangerine for fun, I basically found a new candy to add to my top 5.
Boyfriend jeans are one of those things I tend to adore and lust after on others, but detest on myself. I can never quite manage the bagginess, and while sometimes they look rather wonderful on me, other times, I look like a shlub who can’t get her act together in oversized clothes. It was early last week that I realized two crucial things. (1) I really don’t have dainty heels; they’re all more on the chunky side, and when I say chunky, I mean you’re-being-nice-and-calling-your-300-pound-cousin chunky, not you-put-on-one-and-a-half-pounds-during-Thanksgiving-dinner chunky. (2) If I had a pair of daintier heels, I could possibly pull off the boyfriend jeans situation without a hitch. One accidental shopping trip to Forever 21 later, I mastered the art of taking an outfit that could be worn by a farm-house-mom in Birkenstocks (also a good look) to a slightly chicer level.
Stay tuned for the farm-house-mom in Birkenstocks look coming to a blog near you soon…maybe…probably not.
Last week I went with Daniel to a small business expo, and although I didn’t necessarily have the best of times, the major benefit was getting to walk up and down a few pretty streets in Downtown Los Angeles after a solid lecture or three. The hardest part was finding something to wear. When I go to Magic, there is no imaginable dress code, but I imagined a slightly more conservative look was necessary for the business expo. My closet is lacking in the conservative section, I don’t know what to say, it’s not necessary for my general lifestyle. But it was fun putting my spin on conservative, as quite clearly crop tops don’t fall into that realm.
But, is there anything more conservative than a pencil skirt? I mean, it could be longer, but it’s a start. The skirt was just high waisted enough that a crop top wasn’t too much. This Lovers + Friends top is basically the only nice top I own, and I now realize I need to find at least three more in different colors and structured textures. (got this one at their last sample sale for around $25.) They’ll go with everything, and potentially give some of my outfits a slightly more adult-ish look. Who knows…
