cleansing palate




Dress: H&M (picked out by the man friend!); Blazer: Unknown brand, picked up at Ambiance in SF (c/o Rachel Zoe!); Shoes: Zara (similar style here); Bag: London Fog; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: "Olivia" necklace c/o Lauren Elan, Michael Kors watch, bauble bangles c/o Bauble Bar, assorted gifted bangles

Sometimes, after wearing so much color and print (like yesterday's post) you just need a slight detox -- a neutral cleansing palate almost. Some key accessories and, of course, shoes with personality will keep the otherwise basic outfit interesting. 

In other news, I'd like to announce the winner of three tickets to this Saturday's The Lab event, where yours truly will be strutting down the runway! So without further ado, Haley of Colortree, I hope your Saturday is free, because you have a date with some of the Bay Area's most trend-setting wedding vendors! Plus, we'll be hanging out in a barrel room at the beautiful Cline Cellars, not bad, huh? 

Congratulations Haley, please email me ASAP and thanks to everyone who entered!

For those of you in the area and who didn't win -- fret not! You can still snag tickets here.

  32. This dress is amazing and very similar to all of the Alexander Wang ones I've been coveting lately yet at a much more affordable price point! Love it! Also, the short hair is gorgeous on you - you pull it off well!

  55. You look great!!

    I tried on that same dress at H&M last week thinking it would be great for the office. Didn't quite work for me, as I have an hourglass shape and it was too clingy for work. It also seemed to hit a little higher on the leg for me.

    Still loving the hair cut, Krystal! I suspect we'll see lots of bloggers' hair chopped soon - you look so chic!
