LACMA Urban Light

Hello lovelies! 
After my time in beautiful Santa Barbara, I went to LA for the remainder of my trip. I finally was able to go and see the Urban Light art installation outside of the LACMA. I have been meaning to go for a while now because I think it is such a cool piece. I had a great time in LA with my family and friends. I met some wonderful and interesting people. I found one of my new favorite places in LA, Abbot Kinney street! It is a wonderful street with boutiques and yummy little restaurants. I highly suggest going there if you haven't been! The weather was also so prime when I was in California. This weekend in Chicago it is going to be so warm (for Chicago standards!) I am pretty pumped about spring finally arriving! Time to take off the tights and fur coats! 
Enjoy,

West Coast Edge

Hey lovelies!
For spring break went to California. Right now we are in Santa Barbara; relaxing on the beach everyday. A break was needed, March was a crazy busy month with little time to focus on photo shoots.  I will give my dad creds for finding this lovely graffitied house and for taking the pictures of me. I took the ones of my sister Danielle. While styling for this shoot, I used the relaxed California vibe in our outfits. I loved the idea of black on the beach with the stark contrast and nature as the background. I am excited to do more exploring and maybe even find another awesome location. 
Enjoy,

Location: Santa Barbara, California 
My outfit: American Apparel tank and Bella Blue skirt

Looking Through A Different Lens

Hello Lovelies! 
Here are some pictures that I have taken over a few months with my fisheye film camera. I think that the colors and fisheye effect is unique. I think that it is interesting to see the pictures and how they differ from each other because they use the same flash, zoom, and lens. This post is less about fashion but rather life. However, I always incorporate fashion into my life! Here are some great moments of my life with some special people. This will be my last posting as a sixteen year old because my birthday is on the 24th. I look forward to this new year. I am excited to have more adventures and amazing experiences.
Enjoy,

The March Transition

Hey lovelies! 
Here in Chicago we have had a taste of spring-ish weather, today it got up to 54º! I wanted to celebrate with some color in this post. I am not wearing a single piece that is black! (trust me it was hard) This happy berry- pink tones are brightening up my mood. I think that my outfit is a perfect transition look into spring because of my tights and color scheme. Ariel's look is also transitional because once appropriate, she can take off her tights and have a perfect outfit for a spring day. I snuck in some color by having her put on a bright red lip, so there was not a total contrast between our looks. The first picture of this post is shows one of the pretty shades of gray that we have seen this winter... I do however love how the lake looks iced over! I'm excited to be seeing more green and flowers soon!
Enjoy,

My look: Jeffrey Campbell Audrey heels, custom skirt, vintage top, and Urban Outfitters tights. 
Ariel's look: Proenza Schouler bag, Laguna Moon dress, and Kimchi Blue boots.

The Absent Sun

Hey guys!
I have been meaning to show you these shoes and my bag that I am wearing here. My python heels are loud so I decided to pair them with a simple outfit. I thought that even though my bag is another animal that it still went well with my look. Oh, and if you can see what is in my hair it is a vintage broach I found at a vintage market. This look was a more "on the go" outfit. Let me know what you think of them! I was driving and past this shiny brick wall and thought it went perfect with my outfit. It is March finally so the warmer weather is soon to come (hopefully!). It snowed in Chicago yesterday though so cross your fingers for no more polar vortex's. Everyone keep warm! 
Enjoy,

My look: Club Monaco oversized shirt, American Apparel skirt, Zara bag, vintage broach, and HUE tights.

Manolo Blahnik Barney's Party

Hello!
Last week I went to the Manolo Blahnik capsule collection opening at Barney's! 
There were shoes everywhere! Even on the walls, they set up a really cool display of his shoes on the wall in Barney's. Mr. Blahnik was there wearing a beautiful green suit. I unfortunately missed the opportunity to meet him. He looked like such a nice man, hopefully I will have another chance to meet him. Out of the shoes I saw my favorites both were from the capsule collection. I loved the classic black pumps with the little ankle strap as well as the black heels with the lace-up front. I thought that they were original and very wearable. The party was lovely with yummy macrons and beautiful shoes, two of my favorite things! I hope you like the shoes, here are some of my faves below!
Enjoy,
