ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE

First was stars, and then came the polka dots.  With it being February and love is in the air, thus came the hearts.  From dresses to sexy tops, heart prints are everywhere.  I’d say it’s the go-to print of the season.  Here are some of my favorite items in heart prints:

A lot of these items sold out when they first launched, but due to high demands, a lot of these brands have restocked the items.  Normally I would recommend to wait for them to go on sale, (as they always do by March or April), but this print may be replaced with seashells, seahorses or some tropical fruit by summer time.

My favorite piece in particular is this Flair the Label dress that I’m seen wearing.  TBH, I’m a bit biased because this label belongs to a very good friend of mine.  However, the quality and design speaks for itself.  I’m just so proud of her for getting her label into Planet Blue stores.  If you’re local to the Los Angeles area, I would recommend going in and checking out the label yourself.  I’m not being paid to say any of this, but this is one of the fashion labels I strongly believe in, and I think once you try on Flair you’ll understand what I mean.

As you can see in these photos, some are taken with a professional camera and some are with an iPhone X. I heard a rumor that Instagram is pushing for more candid photos that are taken with your smartphone.  Is this true?  The new algorithm has really put a dent in my engagement, and I’m just wondering if anyone else has seen a difference in their engagement when they post an iPhone pic versus a professional camera pic.  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

I’M NOT A PLAYER I JUST CRUSH (VELVET) A LOT

Every winter I bust out my “winter-ish” fabrics: corduroy, faux fur, and of course, velvet.  The crushed velvet look is just perfect for those holiday parties and events.  It screams done-up without being too much, which is why it looks great as a maxi dress, as a pair of flare pants, and especially as a jumpsuit.  Here are some of my favorite velvet and crushed velvet items of the season:

I fly home to Dallas, TX this Friday, and I’m weary of what to pack.  The weather there keeps fluctuating and I’m scared that I may not pack enough warm clothes or vice versa.  I’m definitely bringing my HAH jumpsuit, (as I’m seen wearing), for the Christmas party my sister is throwing at her house on Saturday.  It covers just enough skin so my father doesn’t think I’m a hooker in LA, but it’s fancy enough to say, “Hey, I’m from LA”.

Sorry folks, but I’ll probably be MIA on the blog until after Christmas.  However, I’ll still be active on my Instagram as I have lots of great outfits that I’ve just shot and can’t wait to post and share.  If you like any of my outfits, you can shop it at my Poshmark account or follow my LikeToKnow.It links!  Merry Christmas!

ETERNAL

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!
