Come on, you’ve seen them worn in many cute ways. Or just worn. AND in many cute forms! BUT have you considered making your own to save some money or to create them in your size? (more…)

It will be a lovely 66º here in Los Angeles, but hey! It’s California so there is a chance that it could actually get warmer by the middle of the day. (more…)

I am loving this cold weather in Southern California. Today Los Angeles will be a lovely, yet chilly 66º! That means keep your cool weather clothing out longer and continue those cute layered outfits. (more…)

Well happy Saturday!
I know I said I’d post my rave outfit last weekend and that I’d try to post a ‘Get Rave Ready With Me’ video for Youtube. Well, last weekend had a lot of bumps! Oh well, I promise a next time. I’ll post my rave outfits on my personal website soon. (more…)

Saturday Styles in LA 10/24 [Halloween Edition P. 1]

Goooood morning friends!

Today I wanted to give you some ideas on simple costumes to put together for parties or clubs. I know that throughout the month there will be a lot of Halloween related events going on and you definitely don’t need to spend a lot of $$ to look good!

Last year I made one post with my top 5 costume ideas. It was super simple, low budget ideas. This year I am going to have TWO posts. However, I want to include some ideas for clubbing and work contests.

Next week I’ll show you some expensive, extensive, OUTRAGEOUS costumes. I’ll even include some rave costumes and give you a look into what I am wearing this year and what I wore last year for Escape From Wonderland.

How delicious is this ice cream costume? It’s simple, cute, and creative!
Totally ideal for a office work costume.

Want to swim in the ocean in Flounder? Here’s a quick ensemble!
This can totally be changed up with a mermaid scale skirt, scrunch bikini bottoms, or high waisted shorts- all can be found on club wear sites and in few club wear stores.

Get a bestie to dress as Mike Wisowsky and you’d be a great pair!
This could even be changed up with purple shorts. Don’t forget about the pig tails.

RAWR!
This is super cute for a night at the club. Easy to get the corset from intimate clothing stores but a little time consuming to add the tiger stripes.

Get the girl posse together for something new. This look can go many ways. Dresses, tutus, corsets, high waisted shorts, scrunch bikini bottoms… The sky is the limit!

Woof woof!
Another one for the girl groups. Quick to put together and fun when all the girls start acting like goof balls!

What a difference this weekend is compared to last weekend! I’m definitely already missing the cool weather! I have all these cute jackets waiting for the clouds and cool breezes to come back. Until then, I guess we’ll have to enjoy the warmth.

How about today we try a cute, thin, flowery kimono with a solid or graphic tank and chiffon shorts? Don’t forget to add flashy accessories to complete the outfit!

This set will definitely keep you cool and stylish in this heat.

Saturday Styles in LA 8/1

Good afternoon ladies!

It’s a beautiful, sunny day and warm day in Los Angeles. Today we will be looking at a high of 80º and definitely no rain in sight! Shave your legs, pull out your bikini and your short shorts and enjoy this day.

While, I just got off work an hour ago, today’s plans consist of going to the Special Olympics! My boyfriend, DJ SafeScape, will be playing at the UCLA campus at 4PM and during the dance party at night.

Today, I plan to wear some short shorts, a flow-y tank top, and my Toms. Also, since I get cold super easily, I will be bringing a pair of jeans and a light jacket.

Check out this outfit below that is super chill, totally grunge, and easy to replicate.

Ps. Don’t forget your sunscreen!

Saturday Styles in LA 7/11 [Bathing Suit Edition]

It’s a beautiful 78º today! If you’re a busy bee like me, you’re at work, not being able to enjoy this beautiful day. Don’t worry! There will be many more days like this, HELLO! it’s California. We have beautiful weather. Okay, not all the time but when it’s hot, it’s hot and perfect for the beach, pool, or water park!

Today, I thought I would switch it up and post some super cute bikinis! While I am definitely not bikini ready, I have about 6 different sets. I usually buy a new one when I find one I like, but lately… I’ve been wearing old ones. I definitely like buying pieces to be able to mix and match. Walmart is probably the best place to get solid colored pieces to mix and match.

So, above is a photo from last summer. You can’t tell very well but the top is from Forever 21. It says LOS ANGELES on it in white letters. I bought it that summer. The bottoms are by Billabong from Pacsun and I bought those maybe almost four summers ago. This mix & match is my go-to swim set because I look good in it even when I’m not bikini ready.
