Club 8. You know that feeling you discover a band from the get-go and every song is just amazing? This. Get into it.
To continue my loss of breath with amazing discoveries, I think my brain had just about stopped working when I bit into this eggs benedict from The Hart and the Hunter. The meal was so texturized and tugged on my southern love, that I couldn't wait to come back for another meal. I had dinner here another night and my mind was just as blown. The best part is it's so underrated and hidden behind a hotel on Melrose. None of that overhype or super long lines.
A handful favorites shots from a wedding shoot I modeled for. You know what you hear about putting a dress on and feeling like "this is it"? It's kind of true as cheesy as it sounds. Maybe it's in the territory of putting on a $3,000 dress that inevitably pops a smile, but it was one of the most fun shoots I've been an honor to be a part of. My girl Liz worked the visuals and styling, while her friend Katie captured everything beautifully. A little bit of midsummer dreaming for you guys.
American Apparel body suit. Vintage Armani skirt. Zara bag. Chloe Sevigny x Opening Ceremony heels. By Boe anklet. Giles and Brother cuff.
Kind of throwing together a bunch of things I really like. And while black shoes would have been a better option, I couldn't wait to take these mary-janes out for a walk. A year ago, I posted this on my Wishful Wednesday and was so bummed when they sold out everywhere. Couldn't believe it when I saw it on eBay for a steal, so I clicked them on home.
Bren overalls (similar here). Wildfox pumps. Juicy Couture bag.
A while back, Figue (Japanese) magazine came and shot a bunch of outfit shots and pics for a 2 page spread on me! I finally got the pictures for them to post on my blog, hence the much shorter bangs. Half the pieces I'm wearing have unknown origins. Never did I think I would have trouble figuring out what's in my closet. Am I finally at the point of owning far too much for mental capacity? At least these pictures can serve as a mental souvenir of a fun Saturday Aimee and I had romping around Pasadena looking for treasure. Oh and her threatening to kidnap me if I didn't finish my shoot on time. Classic Aimee.
The past month, I've been living the sweet unemployed life, feeding off unemployment insurance. It's been a good run, but I'm so ready to get a new desk job - despite the personal projects I've finally had the time to tackle. My personal/career has never been a topic of discussion, but I will say for the curious minds that I've never done the whole blogging thing full-time. Before my lay off, I was designing men's denim at an amazing company. Luckily for me. I have an interview tomorrow - crossing fingers.
Here I am tickled peach, wearing a tunic as a full-fledged mini dress - something that I'm maybe a little too comfortable with. I couldn't resist the beading on this number and how reminiscent of Marchesa.
Somewhat of an ideal black and white outfit broken up by boyish separates. The shorts are known to be the karate type while the top flows over. Picked these up at the amazing boutique store in Silverlake, Mohawk General Store - a store a mostly discovered once moving here. Major kudos to the buyer for having impeccable taste in product and designers. More specifically, I haven't been able to get my paws on Jasmin Shokrian since my first Wasteland find, but I'm content knowing new selection is down a few major city blocks.
