annie hall

Shirt: Equipment; Vest: Silence & Noise (similar style here); Pants: American Apparel; Tie: Burberry (special thanks to Paulette's husband!); Shoes: Marc Jacobs (similar style here); Hat: Halston (similar style here); Jewelry: Michael Kors; Glasses: Bon Look (c/o the Wiki Fashion meet up)

Annie Hall: Sometimes I ask myself how I'd stand up under torture.
Alvy Singer: You? You kiddin'? If the Gestapo would take away your Bloomingdale's charge card, you'd tell 'em everything.

Happy Halloween!

odds and ends

Just a few snaps from around my apartment. Stay tuned for more later! 

1.) Who doesn't love having fresh flowers around? I swear I make up excuses sometimes to go buy new batches.
2.) The ever growing bracelet, watch and sunglass collection. Oddly enough though, I've found myself in a bit of a sunglass rut as of late -- any suggestions for a new pair? I think I may have worn my Karen Walkers to death.
3.) Shoe candy! Sometimes shoes make for better decor than anything else.

sequin sunset

Shirt: Gap; Skirt: Zara (similar style here); Shoes: Christian Louboutin; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Bag: Lodis; Jewelry: Dannijo collar, Michael Kors watch, thrifted black leather watch

It's certainly safe to say that I've been on a sequin kick as of late (and looks like some of my favorite ladies, ahem, Jessica, Christine and Natalie are too!). How do you sport your sparkle for the daytime? Cozy with a sweater or office prim with some pointy toe heels?

that 40s flair

Dress: Asos; Shoes: Isabel Marant; Clutch: Vintage; Sunglasses: YSL; Jewelry: Vintage Citizen watches

Just give me some swinging music and I'm ready to dance the jitterbug! (OK, perhaps not in these heels, but you catch my sartorial drift.)

headed west

Shirt: Zara (similar style here with this detachable collar); Skirt: Vintage (similar style here); Boots: Zara (similar style here); Purse: Thrifted quilted bag; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Michael Kors watch, H&M cuff, J. Crew chain bracelet

I love how the vibe of this outfit is very western chic -- perfect for strolling off into the sunset on a trusty steed (or in this case, an SF muni bus).

weekend warrior

Vest: Old Navy; Shirt: J. Crew (similar style here); Shorts: Levis (similar style here); Sandals: J. Crew; Bag: Zara (similar style here); Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Michael Kors watch, Bauble Bar bangles (c/o); J. Crew chain bracelet

Nothing says a lazy Sunday like laying out at the beach for an unusually warm (for San Francisco, mind you!) afternoon. Of course, I spiced up an otherwise casual outfit with some of my favorite accessories as of late -- oversized gold watch, bangles and sparkly sandals.

How was your weekend? (And better yet, how'd you accessorize for it?!)

life in snapshots

Ah, my latest obsession -- Instagram! Documenting fun thrifted finds and daily outfit detail shots never gets old, does it? Follow me here, won't you?

Happy Friday, everyone!

plaid on plaid

Shirt: H&M (similar style here); Pants: J. Crew (similar style here); Shoes: Miu Miu; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Dannijo collar necklace, Michael Kors watch, Mimi by Sorrelli cuff, c/o

And it continues -- round two of my plaid on plaid obsession. Missed the first round? No need to worry, I got you covered right here.

Special thanks to my lovely coworker, Paulette for snapping these photos.

neon, neon

Jacket: ModCloth (similar style here); Dress: Shipley & Halmos (similar style here); Shoes: Asos (similar style here); Clutch: H&M (similar style here); Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Michael Kors watch, Dannijo collar, H&M cuff

Found a new discounted designer boutique near my apartment (dangerous!) and scooped up this neon yellow number, because, well, my life has been lacking in neon lately. Added bonus: I have so many neutrals it goes smashingly with -- look for a remix soon!

terra cotta

Jacket: Topshop (similar style here); Shirt: J. Crew (similar style here); Pants: c/o J. Brand via the Lucky FABB conference; Shoes: Charlotte Ronson; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Bag: Lodis; Jewelry: J. Crew necklace, Michael Kors watch, H&M cuff

You all know I have a penchant for colored (and patterened) trousers (ok, borderline obsession) but surprisingly enough, until recently, I didn't own a single pair of colored denim. That's why I was exited to try out this J. Brand pair (via the Lucky Fabb conference back in September) and fell in love for two main reasons: 1.) the terra cotta color is reminiscent of pumpkin spice (always a win in my book and perfect for fall color pairings) and 2.) transitions nicely for more of a weekend vibe, more so than their trouser counterparts. 

This got me thinking: I've been missing out this whole time! Excuse me while I go kick myself and desperately rectify this situation by shopping around for more pairs of colored denim. Do any of you have some favorite hues or brands I should check out?

sheer neutral

Dress: Rebecca Minkoff (similar style here); Vest: Old Navy; Shoes: BCBG (similar style here); Belt: Thrifted; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Astoria necklace via Jewelmint; H&M cuff bracelet, Michael Kors watch

Picked up this sheer-like Rebecca Minkoff dress recently (super on sale at Shopbop!) and have been having quite a bit of fun pairing it with seemingly edgier/more casual pieces, like this vest. Not too dressed up, not too casual, just right for a stroll around our neighborhood at sunset.

How was your weekend?

turning red

Top: Gap (via Crossroads, similar style here); Pants: Adam (similar style here); Shoes: Jessica Simpson; Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: J. Crew bracelet, Kelly Framel necklace

Almost forgot about these outfit photos that I took a few months ago -- almost seems silly now to look at bare arms with fall already here! 

Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

silver lining

Sweater: Forever21, gifted from a friend (similar style here); Pants: Zara (similar style here); Shoes: Alexander Wang; Bag: Lodis; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Jewelry: Michael Kors watch, H&M collar necklace (similar style here)

Currently having a moment with silver jewelry and accents. It's a nice change of pace from the gold I normally sport (although you'll never catch me without my trusty gold watch)!

I choose to be proactive

Blazer: Zara (similar style here); Shirt: Zara (similar style here); Jeans: c/o HUDSON; Shoes: Jessica Simpson; Sunglasses: Karen Walker; Bag: London Fog (similar style here); Jewelry: Michael Kors watch

With the month of October already upon us, I was incredibly happy to team up with HUDSON jeans for their October Breast Cancer Awareness campaign -- aiming to not only spread awareness but raise money to help find a cure. 

And you can help, too. For ever pair of HUDSON jeans sold during the month of October, $5 will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Of course, if you're interested to find other ways you can help, simply visit the BCRF site. 

As for the sign I'm holding above here? HUDSON asked myself and several other fellow bloggers to write out a declaration for something we "choose." I felt choosing to be proactive was not only fitting, but can make a world of a difference in detecting and treating the early signs of breast cancer. Make sure to give yourself regular exams and contact your doctor immediately if you notice any irregularities.
