Fall trends with Nasty Gal

One of my favorite shops and on-line boutiques to find spot on pieces is Nasty Gal. Their free standing store in Santa Monica is beautiful, and each season they curate a small handful of up and coming lines, as well as do their own in-house design. Much of what they focus on are pieces that you can’t find anywhere else.

I spent a few hours last week finding some great new pieces for Fall. The fun thing with California is we can wear sleeveless pieces a little but longer. This Nightwalker dress is spot on for a night out. The ruffle details are fun and flirty, and the cut out makes it my style with a little bit of edge. I love florals for fall, especially against the black fabric.

Another staple in my wardrobe year around is a maxi skirt. In the summer a simple tank does the trick, but as the weather gets a little cooler an off the shoulder piece, like this one from Glamorous, adds a little sexiness. The colors of this skirt from Nightwalker scream autumn weather to me. I have an amazing leather coat from Nasty Gal that will mix in with this just perfectly when it cools off even more.


For a night out, their high-waisted denim has constantly been in my rotation these days. If you are looking for one great piece to pair with this type of jean, a bodysuit like this one from Lavish Alice makes it easy. I decided to make it a little sexier with the cool cut out design, but a simple one with a great belt is just as cute too.

Weekend Whereabouts – Staycation Style

IMG_5342 (1)I had such a fun weekend just hanging out in Manhattan Beach taking some time for myself. Friday night did not disappoint with a pop up concert for The Black Eye Peas!

The weekend was followed by lots of work and cruising the AVP Volleyball Tournament!

Trends, Your Style

It’s all about the Belt!

This 2016 Spring/Summer the belt is back in a huge and bold statement. 70’s inspired vintage bets are being seen from street style mavens on simple jean shorts, to fancy dresses for the evening. You can start simple or go bold with a fringe belt that can be worn over a pair of jeans and paired with a simple tank.
