Red, White, and Blue

Hi readers! I feel like it has been a while since I posted, but I am not on hiatus so don't worry. Hehe. It might seem crazy that I'm posting an outfit that is starting to expose more skin, but at the time I put this outfit together, it was pretty warm in LA.

A few weeks ago, I was renovating my house with new furniture to make everything look organized, and I wanted to wear something comfortable and casual. What I love about this dress is the alternate stripes of blue and white, and gives off a spring vibe. The elastic waist on this dress creates a nice silhouette for anyone who wears this style.

As usual, I cannot go without pairing my outfits without a pair of boots of some sort. And my handy dandy red Prada bag that adds a bit of pop to just everything I own!

At the bottom of my post, I provided a link that is similar to what I have but different print.

 My up-do top knot is a nice change that I usually do when I am relaxing at home~

For my feature of the Prada bag, there are two new shades of pink that are available in the Prada Saffiano Lux which is SUPER cute!

Dolce Vita

 Can you feel the heat lately? Spring is somewhat right around the corner, and what other way to transition than into some lace! This Valentina dress is from Dolce Vita's December giveaway and I was lucky enough to win. The crochet detail is so beautiful. The sheer sleeves is great for the not too cold and not too hot weather. It's just right.
Although Valentines day is a month away, it would be the perfect date dress!

The "It" Coat

 So as the name of the post is titled, it is all about the coat. It seems a bit silly that I would be wearing something rather thick in LA, but I just could not resist. Well, actually, I was heading out to a Christmas dinner with a friend (back in 2013) and it did get pretty cold. ANYWAY, what I love about the coat is that it falls at the perfect length and the color. The length of the coat fell a bit longer than my skirt, so the coat almost acted like a mini dress. It appears on the shoulders that it looks big, but it is a bit oversized since I purchased a size us 6 (just because I like the oversized look).

My outfit under the coat consists of a simple cream/beige v-neck sweater to create a neutral soft tone to my other color choices of greys and blacks. My skirt is black vinyl which adds a different dimension that adds shine and texture. It makes my skirt stand out because of the glare!
As usual, I can't get away from my bootie addiction, as I am wearing my Rachel Zoe kane booties.

Off Duty

Happy 2014 everyone! I hope you had an amazing holiday and New Years with your loved ones.

I titled this post Off Duty because of tumblr inspiration from model's off duty streetstyle looks. This is how I would dress all the time if I didn't get persuaded to buy lots of colorful pieces of clothing. What I love about this look is that it is simple, chic, and stylish, but most importantly comfortable! It was one of those "running your errands" type of day, but I could not resist to stop by Americana in Glendale. Layering with a red flannel on top of my Ain't No Wifey Tank. 

I am also wearing my Cargo Leather Jacket I got from Allsaints, which is THE BEST leather jacket. It was worth every penny.

My lower half consists of complete Rag & Bone pieces. The jeans are the RBW 23 Skinny Jeans which is a thicker fabric and doesn't give much stretch so my suggestion is to size up one size! Hands down Rag & Bone jeans are amazing with its featured zip pockets and ankle zips as well.

The booties are also Rag & Bone, the Harrow Leather Ankle Boot. With a decent heel that is not too high, it is comfortable and does not need to be broken into. They do run small as well so I would size up a whole size! 
 Last but not least, can't forget the Prada bag! It finally made its debut.
