SWEATER AS ART | DANIEL SILVERSTAIN

I discovered a fantastic designer at the end of 2016. Daniel Silverstain puts an incredible amount of thought into his designs, and I completely fell for the White.City collection. It was inspired by the Bauhaus movement (which influenced a lot of architecture), as well as Israel and the future. Cool tidbit: Daniel Silverstain is a former musician and recording artist. Great asymmetry and juxtaposition of futuristic, metallic flash with soft, see-through gauze. Lines are clean and volume is oversized. He was also inspired by both the Mediterranean Sea and the desert. I really enjoyed this silhouette : pairing the oversized sweater with fitted jeans. Check out more of Daniel Silverstein's designs here and here. Also in shown here: loafers jeans bag (similar) photos by Mr. Nicholson

NOVEMBER WRAP-UP

I read some great books recently, which is a wonderful way to approach the end of the year (although that makes putting together a Favorite Books of 2016 list much more difficult). What did you read this month? Anything you'd recommend? ^_^

HUGE BEAUTY HAUL | Ameriie

My huge beauty haul, thanks to visiting Sephora and Ulta, aka beauty heaven lol. I got a variety of things--makeup, skincare, and hair products, including Living Proof curl shampoo and conditioner to get my curly look in the video. You already know how much I love Urban Decay's Vice lipsticks, so I picked up a few of those, as well as a few things I haven't tried. I think a lot of these will prove to be great choices for fall makeup (but I didn't only get dark colors, as I think pale nudes and pinks are great for fall looks, too)! I hope you enjoy the video--don't forget to subscribe! ^_~ ***PRODUCTS USED/MENTIONED*** Living Proof Curl Travel Kit  Living Proof No Frizz Shampoo  Living Proof No Frizz Conditioner  Evian Facial Water Spray  Ole…

AUTUMN IN THE BIG APPLE

One of my favorite things about autumn is the cool, crisp air (and hot apple cider and cinnamon-sprinkled lattes). I don't get much of it in LA, so I relish it in New York City. I'm so in love with this amazing coat by Teatum Jones. No place like New York, New York. ^_~ coat by Teatum Jones pants by Zara sunglasses by Saint Laurent bag by Chanel shoes by Christian Louboutin

FALL ROMANCE: GOTHIC FLORALS & LEATHER | STYLE INSPO

  A little fall style inspiration. ^_^ I absolutely adore florals, and don't believe you have to tuck them away for the colder months. I wanted to put together some of my favorite elements: black leather, romantic lace, dark florals, and brocade (I love brocade everything, by the way) for a bit of autumn style inso. ^_~ Stella McCartney - Ingrid Wool-piqué Blazer Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Women's Circular-Lace Blouse Etro Black Floral Bra Top Princetown floral jacquard slipper H&M - Biker Leggings Urban Decay 'Vice' Lipstick Saint Laurent - Monogramme Blogger Bag Ray-Ban - Clubmaster sunglasses
