   I went and saw the Helmut Newton show at the Annenberg Space the other week with my mother. Titled White Women Sleepless Nights Big Nudes, the show was very intimate with a small collection of photos and two films about Newton (one by his wife.) My favorite were the shots of the models fully clothed next to shots of them nude in the exact same pose. He truly had a way when it came to showing off a woman's body. He knew just the right thing to make it sexy but not too vulgar.  I loved the stories that were told by the people who worked alongside him that later became models for him. Newton saw something in them, maybe it was their legs or the way they held themselves and was able to turn these women into high fashion models like Cindy Crawford. To have that technical, imaginative eye and to know that this person would work in a shot must be wonderful. There's a scene in the film made by his wife where they are comparing two shots of a model in lingerie. In one, the model is fully aware of the camera and posed. In the second, she is blinking creating a layer of flirtatious mystery. They decide to use the "accident" shot in which she is blinking because it is more fascinating. This opened my eyes--why must a photo be completely perfect? A shot of a woman blinking may generate more feelings within you than one that is staged. It's just a reminder that beauty is not always expected. I suggest if you live in Los Angeles, to check out the show.
   It was a very hot, sunny day in town so I dressed in my newest summer addition--an Alexander Wang knit dress I got on their website sale. I paired it with my YSL Muse purse and Tory Burch nude sandals. It's a pretty relaxed outfit but I felt well put together.

    I'm sorry for the delay in posts--I've been terribly sick. Last week, I went to a glassjaw concert with my husband at the Echoplex in LA. It was our first time there--pretty neat venue except for the fact that whenever music was playing, it felt as though your insides were dancing. It's not the place to go if you're seeing a mosh-pit inducing band unless you like being smashed up against a wall and various men brushing up against you like they're huge, wet cats. We managed to get a few shots of my outfit before the doors opened. We just pulled in the red and starting shooting.
   Continuing my love affair with lingerie-turned-dresses, I wore my Ann Deulemeester slip with a Helmut Lang black tank dress underneath. (Helmut Lang is one of my favorite labels to shop for classic pieces.) I also wore my favorite pair of ankle boots by Balenciaga and my Botkier crossbody.  I brought along a Zara blazer I got on sale earlier this year. It's made of light fabric so it's really just for fun, not for warmth but it helps if you just need a little extra protection from air conditioning or breeze.

     I was wanting to wear something sensual and fresh so I chose one of my favorite outfits. It always makes me feel feminine and nymph-like especially when I walk. I feel like I'm gliding. Worn with Tory Burch sandals in nude and Yve Saint Laurent "Muse" bag, the only thing I needed was my Miu Miu round sunnies to make it feel complete. (The bone colored Muse bag was a lucky find in a Barney's sale and a perfect sidekick for summer.)

    A lot of people ask me about this outfit, specifically the dress and where I found it. Surprisingly, I found it at one of my favorite lingerie stores. It's meant to be worn as a nightgown or for something more intimate but I found it was the perfect material for a summer dress.  Since it's so sheer, I usually pair it with a vintage slip of my mother's. You can wear anything, a short or long maxi slip underneath but I like having my legs play peekaboo. If you're ever wanting something a bit more unique and feminine, go and take a look at what a lingerie store has to offer.

      This is my first entry, hello! Being that I am a lover of all things nerd, it's only right to kick off this new blog with a nod to my love of Sci-fi. Now let's talk clothes.
      Today's wolfy outfit was inspired by comfort. I didn't leave the house till early afternoon and by that time, the fog had creeped in along the coast. With a 72 degree weather forecast, I knew I wanted to go with something that had the ability to keep me both cool and warm for my lunch date with my husband. However, I didn't want to sacrifice my celebration of summer (even though, in CA terms, summer never truly goes away) so I chose a simple combination of a blouse with shorts.

     EQUIPMENT has always been my go-to blouse when it comes to getting dressed. Whether its a hot day or a cold one, I can always count on EQUIPMENT to make me look polished. This pajama-style snake blouse has a perfect blend of rock n' roll and chic. Lately, I've been having a love affair with Alexander Wang, especially his T line. I was able to get these leather shorts on sale and I've been wearing them a lot this summer. The nice thing about these leather shorts is how thin and relaxed they are. You exude a cool factor, an edge while remaining cool in another sense. To top off my outfit, I chose my Michael Kors gladiator sandals. Even with being five years old and all the adventures they've experienced, they're a perfect ending to any outfit.
    Recently, I was given the Celine Trio bag as a gift and it's quickly become my favorite summer purse. There's enough room to bring anything you might need while remaining small and easy. Most of the jewelry shown above are staple pieces I wear all the time except for the cuff. I brought the Hermes cuff out of retirement with the hopes I get inspired enough to wear it. I've always been confused with how to wear the bracelet but I've decided it's too beautiful a piece to leave it in storage. Let's hope, it makes more of an appearance this year.
