Thanksgiving and Christmas is just around the corner and many of us, (I’m talking to you LA transplants), will be flying somewhere to visit family and friends.  Maybe we’re not all traveling like Kenny J, but it wouldn’t hurt to look uber fashionable and comfy while you depart the plane and get picked up by your family in the midwest, (speaking from my own personal experience).flight_IMG_5932flight_IMG_5923

I am wearing Forever21 Brushed Twill Utility Jumpsuit.  It’s available online and in stores right now for under $35.  This jumpsuit is so soft and comfortable, and I love that it has a drawstring so that it cinches at the waist.  The hem is too long for my short legs so I rolled it up and paired it with Stuart Weitzman Red Python Peep-Toe Pumps to give it more of a sophisticated look.

The pumps are about five years old and originally purchased from Saks during their Christmas sale. Here are similar looks:

Giuseppe Zanotti Suede Peep-Toe Pumps in Red

B Brian Atwood Pumps

Versace Red Eel Skin Platform Shoes

If the clothes I wear are going to be under $50, then I better pair it with some high quality accessories or the outfit may end up looking cheap.  It’s okay to even wear a $1 shirt as long as you offset it with a purse or a nice pair of shoes that says I’m not a hobo.

This is a ZARA Long Black Knit Scarf that I purchased last year.  I love scarves that have extra length because you can play around with the styling.  This scarf is extra soft because of its knit sweater fabric, and it’s definitely become a staple in my fall/winter wardrobe.  Here are similar looks:

ZARA Basic Extra Soft Scarf in Black


I loved this jumpsuit the minute I put it on.  I’m headed home to Dallas in a couple of weeks for Thanksgiving and will be sure to wear this on flight.  Thanks for reading and let me know if you love to see more travel-friendly outfits like this.

Ever run out of food so you just throw together whatever you have left in your pantry and fridge and it turns out to be the best freaking dish you ever made?  That rule also applies to fashion.  I hate it when things are too matchy-matchy or coordinated.  My mother has a tendency to be matchy-matchy, and I’m always correcting her in her styling because a look can become “too much”.  Just because you wear a Chanel coat doesn’t mean the rest of your outfit has to be head-to-toe Chanel.  You’ll end up loosing that debonair, classy look you were going for and just become pretentious.

It is based on this fashion guideline that I put together this outfit.  I have a mixture of classic, stripe tee with fitted, high-waist skirt with chunky, knit scarf.  It’s a mishmash of things thrown together, but creates a look that’s slightly conservative but bold at the same time.


I am wearing an American Eagle Outfitters Aerie Long Sleeve Best T in Navy.  It’s currently on super sale (less than $12), and I got a size XS so I can wear it fitted.  I love that it’s long in the torso so I can still tuck it into mid-waist or low-rise jeans.  This shirt is also very comfortable and easy to wear with a faux-leather pencil skirt or ripped jeans.

This is a H&M High-Waist Satin Pencil Midi-Skirt from their Trend Collection that I purchased earlier this summer for less than $50.  This skirt is very body contouring, but has a lot of stretch and pull to suck you in in all the right places.  It has a long zipper in the back that allows you to adjust how much movement you want in the legs.  I prefer keeping the zipper low to give that vintage 1950s vibe.  Unfortunately, this skirt is no longer available.

Here are similar looks:

ModCloth I’ll Have The Usual Skirt in Pine

Charlotte Russe Ribbed Bodycon Midi Skirt (on sale)

ASOS Pencil Skirt in Cable Knit Texture


I am wearing an Abercrombie & Fitch Extra-Long Knit Scarf in Yellow that I purchased about six years ago.  I specifically chose yellow at the time because of my Alma Mater (Georgia Tech), but it’s also my favorite color because it adds happiness to every outfit.

Everyone needs that one extra-long chunky scarf that they can wrap around and around their neck to stay extra warm and look extra fabulous.  Here are some similar looks:

ZARA Knit Scarf in Mustard

ASOS Oversized Extra Long Rib Knit Scarf

Urban Outfitters Sherpa Eternity Scarf in Beige

Urban Outfitters Icelandic Rib Scarf


The mixture of texture, color and styles adds uniqueness to this look.  I recommend that you dig through your closet and just play.  Don’t worry about whether or not you think something will match.  Just try it on and feel it out.  As I’ve mentioned before in my previous post, (Made In LA), my ratio for dressing is 1:1.  For every one fancy/trendy item, I pair it with one casual/classic item.

How did y’all like the array of colors?  Let me know!

SO, I’m going to start off by first saying that everything in this outfit is no longer available.  (Silence.  Someone coughs.)  You’re now wondering why in the freaking world would a fashion blogger blog about an outfit that is no longer available AND name her post LAST CALL?!  Before you get your panties all in a wad, let me explain and tell the story of the last call items that you see before you.

What we have here ladies are fashionable items that I purchased on last call clearance because they were already past their season, the last size of that item and/or the very last one of that item.  I’m not sure why it’s such a taboo to wear things from previous seasons when staple items like a LBD, long black coat, and grey platform boots are always on trend fall after fall and winter after winter.  Does this outfit look fabulous? Yes.  Does this outfit fit the season?  Yes.  Did this outfit cost me a mere fraction of what I would have spent if I purchased it as soon as it was released? YES!  So start shopping smart!

I am wearing a J. Crew Long Wool Coat with Nautical Buttons.  I got this coat almost a decade ago, and I still remember buying it for $40.  YUP, four-zero dollars.  If you have EVER shopped at J. Crew, you would know that most of their outerwear start at $150 retail price.

So how in the world did I purchase mine for such a ridiculously low price?  By purchasing it in January and waiting for the sale on sale event, which always happens because they’re trying to offload their winter inventory.  I’m an impulse shopper so I can completely understand and sympathize with the shopaholics that are screaming what if they run out of my size or what if they sell out?!  My response is: it happens.  (Silence.  Someone coughs.)  But is it really the end of the world?  Instead you end up finding other stylish items that you didn’t notice before AND that are on super sale.

Here are some similar looks:

GUESS Funnel-Collar Asymmetrical Coat (on sale at Macy’s)

Vince Camuto A-Line Military Walker Coat (on sale at Macy’s)

Rachel Roy Double-Breasted Military Maxi Coat (on sale at Macy’s)


This is a Theyskens’ Theory Kumila Dress that I purchased from Barneys New York about three years ago for 1/3 of it’s original price.  Once again, I purchased it around January/February when all the winter items are purged from the stores.  This beautiful silk knit dress can also be worn into spring because it’s light-weight and very breathable.

Here are similar looks:

Theory Karlyn Dress

Tommy Hilfiger Cowl-Neck Cable-Knit Sweater Dress (on sale at Macy’s)

Marc New York by Andrew Marc Metallic Cable Knit Sweater Dress

Versus Long Sleeve Knit Dress

Acne Studios Jamal L Ribbed Sweater Dress

And lastly, these fabulous Dolce Vita Suede Block-Heel Knee-High Boots in Grey that I got from Free People for under $100 a few years ago.  This was the steal of a lifetime.  I’m sure it was probably a return, but it was the last pair they had in stock and it just happen so to be my size.  It was a purchase sent from above.  They are very comfortable to wear, but the zippers in the back can get a bit rusty if not worn or used in a while.  I just recommend wearing them often so you don’t run into this issue.

Here are similar looks:

Autumn Elegant Stage Lace Up Knee High Knight Block Boots

Dune London Skyler Suede High Heel Knee High Boot

Steve Madden Gorgeous Boots in Grey

This whole outfit may have only costed me $250, and that includes wool outerwear, silk knit dress, and a pair of suede platform boots from very reputable and quality brands.  Is this a last call steal or what?  Thank y’all for reading, and as always, please feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions, suggestions, or feedback!

One of the best things in life is playing in the nude.  Remember when you were young and carefree and clothes wasn’t necessary?  Well, as adults, it would be illegal to parade around in the buff, but it doesn’t mean we have to neglect the nudes when it comes to fashion.  inthenudes_IMG_5721inthenudes_bundledup

This knit sweater is one of my prize possessions, and I scored this Stella McCartney Oversized Chunky Knit Zip Cardigan from the bi-annual Barney’s Warehouse Sale that use to occur every year in the LA Convention Center until August 2012 when they decided to move the sale online.  It was indeed a very sad summer.  However, I was elated that I still got my one last victory purchase.

I have a rule, and this fashion rule is unfortunately unbreakable.  If I try on something at a store and two complete strangers walk up to me and compliment me within a 10 minute time frame on that item, then I must purchase the item (regardless of the cost).  My wallet hates this rule, but I stand by it and it has yet to fail me in my fashion quests.  This $600 sweater was purchased because of that rule and I never regretted it because it was originally $2000+.  I don’t expect you to go break your bank on a chunky knit, but a quality one is always worth the investment.  Here are some similar styles:

ATM Anthony Thomas Melillo Chunky Cardigan (on sale at Barney’s Warehouse)

Rose Gal Stylish Cable-Knit Hooded Cardigan

Michael Kors Button-Front Textured Long Cardigan (on sale at Neiman Marcus)

Stella McCartney Chunky Knit Wool-Blend Cardigan

inthenudes_IMG_5780Underneath the super warm sweater cardigan is Urban Outfitters Out From Under Ribbed V-Neck Midi Slip in Taupe.  This dress is now an online exclusive, but I purchased mine from the Los Angeles Melrose store when they offered it in the color Taupe and Black.  I feel like Out From Under runs a bit small so I got a size Small in this dress.  It is  VERY fitted, but I love the simplicity and sexiness of this dress.  I may just have to purchase it in black as well.


Fall fashion can be sexy as well, as long as you know how to bundle up without compromising on your style.  Neutrals and nudes are a great way to pretend like you’re showing skin without having to freeze while showing skin.

Did anyone else ever shop at the Barney’s Warehouse Sale in Los Angeles?  If so, love to hear what you got from there that you still wear to this day.

datenight_IMG_5680It’s the weekend and hopefully all you ladies got to spend some quality time with your significant other.  For all the single ladies, and I mean me, we need to make sure that we are dressed to impress to catch that Bae, aka boyfriend.  To explain, a girlfriend recently told me it was “Bae Season” and that she needed to “Bae-Up”.  (Huh?)  Had no idea what that meant until I put on this outfit and realized that it was going to be a date night.


This sexy little number is a Carmella Emeline Silk Dress in Magnolia that I got from a sample sale back in July this year.  I am so in love with this dress.  It does run a bit small on the hips, but I got a size 2 and plan on taking it into alterations to make this baby really rock.  The dress does come with an optional inner camisole, but I prefer to wear it without to show off it’s deep plunging neckline.  The buttons on this dress give it an extra sex-kitten boost.  This dress also comes in the color black and is on sale at Revolve.datenight_IMG_5707datenight_IMG_5708

In order to really show off the sexiness of the dress, I put on a Free People Front Strap Triangle Bra in Black.  The front straps on this bra gives the neckline a distraction from the lacey, racy bra.  It’s very in your face, so you can’t be shy to show off some skin.

I have always been very bold and audacious with my fashion.  Even though this outfit shows off a lot of neckline and chest, I think the soft femininity of the silk, the buttons and the mid-length of the dress offsets the sexiness.  Don’t you agree?  Love to know what you think of this outfit!

Since moving to Los Angeles six years ago, I’ve come to adapt myself to her weather, her food, and mostly her fashion.  Her style is always trendy, but casual enough that you don’t feel threatened.  As most commercial casting breakdowns would put it: attractive, yet approachable.  This might not be true for everyone, but that’s how I’ve come to interpret LA fashion and that’s how I’ve come to style and dress myself.

My ratio for dressing is 1:1.  For every one fancy/trendy item, I pair it with one casual/classic item.  So, if I’m wearing a cute peplum pencil skirt, then I’ll offset it with a casual plaid top.  This black and red checkered long-sleeve flannel is from the mens department of Uniqlo.  I got this from an Uniqlo store in Shanghai, China and their sizing is very different than the stores in the States.  The women shirts in China are much smaller and slimmer, and I wanted a shirt that had a more boyfriend feel than a little child.  I am wearing a size Small and it definitely has a lot of room and length.

I just adore this Alice + Olivia Natasha Peplum Pencil Skirt.  1) The ponte jersey fabric is soft and has just enough stretch to let you walk with ease.  2) The peplum gives the pencil skirt a flirty, fun look.  Unfortunately, this style is currently sold out, but I did find it in the color Hot Pink.  Here are other similar looks:

It has been an exciting first two months for KANGTHROPOLOGIE, and I’m anxious to see where it goes from here.  Thank y’all for reading and I’m always available for any comments, suggestions or questions.  Have a great weekend!

I feel like I have been blogging about a lot of cool casual or trendy outfits, but have yet to touch base with the classy lady that’s inside of me.  I go out for a lot of auditions that require me to look more sophisticated and put together, which is probably why I’ve strayed away from it in my real life.  However, I love putting this outfit together.  It’s something I would wear going out on a date or grab a night cap with my girlfriends.  I feel very sexy and stylish in this fall outfit.  

Every female needs a pencil skirt.  It doesn’t matter what your size, shape or religion is, trust me, you can pull off a pencil skirt.  The purpose of a pencil skirt is to flatter the curve of a female figure.  Now I know some of you are saying, but I don’t have any curves or I have too much curve.  Whichever the case, this skirt, with the appropriate stretch and fabric, can help accentuate what your have or don’t have.

This is an Amanda Uprichard Ponte Pencil Skirt that I got on super sale from Neiman Marcus a couple of years ago.  I have grown to really like the stuff from Amanda Uprichard.  It’s fine quality and they’re well priced, especially when they’re on sale.  This style in the color black is sold out, but Revolve currently has it available in the colors Bittersweet and Ivory.


I purchased this Zara Cropped Turtleneck two years ago.  It has been cold and windy in LA and this top is PERFECT for this weather.  Because my pencil skirt is work high-waisted, my cropped turtleneck cuts off perfectly at the waist, which lengthens the look of my legs.  If the top was any higher though it wouldn’t look as classy, and if it was any lower I would be hiding the smallest part of my curve.  Here are some similar looks:

Zara Cropped Sweater

UO Kimchi Blue Lace Trim Cropped Sweater in Black and White (on sale)

UO Kimchi Blue Cozy Mock Neck Sweater

UO Silence + Noise Cassie Turtleneck Sweater

UNIF x UO Fine Gauge Cropped Sweater

These are my favorite heels right now.  I just got these Steve Madden Varsity Stilettos in Wine Suede on sale at Lord & Taylors for under $50.  They are on sale again with an additional 20% off from now until Nov. 11 (see SALES for me details).  I have been blogging about my love for burgundy this fall, and now I have it in the form of these fabulous heels.  You will definitely be seeing me with these sexy heels on throughout this fall.  Here’s a similar look.


I seriously considered chopping off my hair after the photoshoot of this outfit.  I’m still considering it, but I know my agents will be upset if I don’t have headshots to match my new hair ASAP.  Cutting/coloring hair is a bit more costly when you’re an aspiring actress because of all the things that come with changing your “look”.  Long hair makes you more youthful, but an edgy bob will make you more sophisticated and chic.  A woman.  A lady in the street.  I definitely love this look enough to bring it up with them the next time I see them.  What do y’all think?  Should I chop off my hair??  Leave a comment below and and let me know!

Last night it actually rained in Los Angeles, which brought in this perfect cold chill that made me smile.  Nothing like a little change in temperature to our unwavering sunny weather, and nothing like a little pop of color to add into our monochrome black and white wardrobe.  poppy_volkswagenI found this bright red Marc by Marc Jacobs Big Button Princess Peacoat a very, very long time ago at Neiman Marcus, and knew that I just had to buy it even if it meant going in debt for six months afterwards.  I have taken really great care of it and it has maintained it’s brilliancy and bold color.  I have a love for outerwear, and my friends are always confused as to why I purchase so many coats and jackets while living in LA.  And my only response is that I can wear it out that one time a year when it gets chilly and look fabulous.  Here are some similar looks:

GUESS Double-Breasted Pleasted Peacoat in Rouge (on sale at Macy’s)

Via Spiga Double-Breasted Flare Peacoat in Red (on sale at Macy’s)

MICHAEL Michael Kors Double-Breasted Peacoat in True Red (on sale at Macy’s)

I am wearing a French Connection 3/4 Sleeve Striped Dress to offset the prissiness of the peacoat.  This is not a bodycon dress, and that is precisely the reason why I call this my go-to dress.  I purchased this dress one size up so that I can wear it loose and comfy, (FCUK is known to run small, so I would even consider going up two sizes if you’re unsure of the fit).  It still shows off curves where it needs to when you move, but you don’t have to wear a corset to get into this dress.  It’s my kind of sexy, casual-chic.  Here are some similar styles:

French Connection Starzy Stripe Long Sleeve Dress (on sale)

French Connection French Stripe Cotton Dress (on sale)

French Connection French Stripe Dress (on sale)

And finally, we have the shoes.  These fringe style sandals have been popping up everywhere since the middle of summer and now I finally have a pair.  I threw this pair of heels into the look because it brings trend and sexiness to a very All-American look.  These Steve Madden Fringly Suede High-Heel Sandals in Beige are currently on sale.  I purchased them from Lord & Taylor during their Friends and Family Sale event three weeks ago and got it for $70.  They’re comfy and super cute.  It’s a bit hard to put on at first because the opening at the top is stiff and small, (even with it unzipped), but once your foot slips in it’s super fabulous.  I don’t ever spend too much on fashion items that are too trendy.  The look will go out of style by next season and I’ll have to store them away for a few years before they become vintage or stylish to wear again.  Here are similar styles:

Steve Madden Staarz Ankle Fringe Sandal in Taupe Suede (on sale at Nordstrom Rack)

LuLu’s Any Excursion Tan Suede Fringe Dress Sandals in Tan

Happy November everyone!  I hope y’all had a wonderful (and crazy) Halloween weekend.  There were tons of great sales because of Halloween and I started to fill up my imaginary online shopping carts, again.  This got me thinking of the previous post I did, SHOPPING CART(s), and how a friend told me that she really liked the concept.  So, in lieu of the upcoming post-Thanksgiving Cyber Monday sale, I’m going to start a bi-monthly Cyber Monday post that shows you what all I’ve got in my own personal online shopping carts.  So without further adieu, here are my current carts:


I’ve had my eye on this Australian brand ever since I start fashion blogging, (which was only 7 weeks ago).  I’ve actually never purchased anything from this brand so I can’t account for the quality, but their pricing is very reasonable.  I also noticed that Australia has the exact opposite season as us, so when we’re winter, they’re summer and vice versa.  That means all their winter stuff is currently on sale!  Yay Australia!


The Eclair Jumpsuit is part of their SaboLuxe line, which is their higher-end line.  I think this jumpsuit is sexy, feminine and so chic.  I loved that they paired the jumpsuit with a pair of single strap sandals on the model.  I am ballsy when it comes to fashion and not scared to have a little plunge in the neck or show off a little cleavage.  This is a must for fall, and I would pair this with a great leather jacket.


So..the Waist Tie Jumpsuit (also part of the SaboLuxe line) may not exactly be fall fashion, but I am just so in love with this piece.  I’m a big fan of jumpsuits to begin with because it’s a top and a bottom all in one, but this jumpsuit just screams comfort and coolness.  I’d buy it just so I can wear it when it’s warm again.  Oh wait, I live in LA, it’s warm everyday.


Two things:  1) the color 2) it’s crop top, (and you know how much I love me some crop tops).  This Bluestone Knit is on sale and under $35.  I think a pop of color with some grey trousers would do me just fine.


This Kiana Knit is currently sold out in my size, but I’m not giving up.  Put myself on the wait list.  The top is uberly sexy and practical for fall fashion.  I love that it’s yellow and long sleeve.  Fingers crossed ladies!


I found out about the online store Dolls Kill when I first started searching for Minimale Animale swimwear that were on sale.  I have been obsessing over this swim line ever since I saw  their one-piece swimsuit on Instagram.  Now, I wouldn’t say that this online store is my normal cup of tea, but if you browse through the clearance section (currently an extra 30% off), you’d find some items that are worth putting in your cart.


I’m obsessed with this Minimale Animale The Hard Necessity String Brief in Sun Fade.  I know it’s not summer, but this is currently under $20!  You buy when you can and wear it later, especially when it’s original price was $90!  I could fly to Fiji tomorrow for all I know and I’ll have this super cute bikini brief to bring with me.


AND…I’m also bringing this Minimale Animale Dragline Jumpsuit in White!  It’s a jumpsuit AND a bikini all in one!  This is like if Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie had a kid together.  Oh wait, they did.  They had three.


This Joyrich 8Bit Floral Bodycon Dress in White is currently less than $25.  I mean, I don’t think I have any reason not to buy this and wear it with my nice leather jacket, again.

I hope that you’ll enjoy this new Cyber Monday post idea that I’m putting into Kangthropologie, but as always, my fashion comes first.  Thanks for reading and let me know if you have any comments or feedback!



LA fashion is very different from the rest of the country because of our never-ending warm temperature, but occasionally we get those nights where it drops down into the low 60s.  Those are the days that we want transitional pieces that go great with or without a jacket.  I found this Lovers + Friends Eternal Dress in Ivory during the Revolve (i.e. Tularosa, Lovers + Friends, NBD) Sample Sale last month (read SALES).  You’d hate me if I told you how much I actually bought it for, so let’s just say that it’s on sale right now.  The fabric is soft and durable, kind of like a scuba suit fabric, so it should keep me warm when it gets chilly at night.  This dress also comes with a long sleeve look.

I purchased this Vince Fur Trimmed Hooded Anorak two years ago at Neiman Marcus when they had a special on Vince outerwear.  It was still pricey, but this coat is simple enough that I can wear it year after year.  Definitely an investment piece.  I like that the coat is light with a removable coyote fur-trim and hood.  This way I can wear it all the way into spring season without looking too bundled up.  This coat is no longer available, but here are some similar looks:


I’m not worried about wearing white after Labor Day, especially this dress.  Remember ladies, it’s okay to be a rebel at times and take risks in fashion.  This outfit is chic but not overly done and can be worn to lunch and/or dinner and a movie.  Thank y’all for reading and let me know if you have any questions or comments!
