The other night, I had a family dinner to attend. It seems Fall has finally come to stay in California and so have the rains. The constant light sprinkle outside gave me a chance to break out my Vince fur vest-it's unbelievably warm and cozy.

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to see Matthew Bourne's Sleeping Beauty at the Ahmanson theater. It was so wonderfully dark-my favorite mix of beauty and creepy. Matthew Bourne re-imagined the classic tale of Tchaikovsky's Sleeping Beauty by injecting it with vampires. As he says in the program interview, the story already has fairies and magic? Why not vampires too? 
Wanting to represent my support of all things supernatural, I chose pieces that remind of a gothic romance: burgundy for blood, lace for innocence and a Charlotte Olympia clutch for bite. Even my lips were damned eternally. The show leaves Dec. 1st so I suggest everyone to hurry and go see it.

Is everyone as excited as I am for the latest Hunger Games installment? My husband and I got up early for a matinee showing of Catching Fire, braving the freezing winds (well as freezing as the California coast can get.) Katniss may be a girl on fire but blue is the hottest of any flame.

Who would've thought a suede legging in November would be a bad choice? Luckily, my top was airy enough to keep me cool. One of the purses that I have been in heavy rotation for this season has been my Stella McCartney falabella tote in a rosy hue. The shearling fabric is so cozy and the color brings cheer to Fall.

I've been enjoying Marilyn in Fashion by Christopher Nickens and George Zeno especially their segment on JAX slacks. Check it out! (Seen with a James Perse turtleneck sweater and Stella McCartney Falabella tote.) 


The weather in California has been unusually warm this November therefore dress weather is still in effect. For a morning movie date with my husband to see the new Thor film, I decided to break out my newest Zara find: a tartan maxi lingerie-inspired maxi dress with a high slit. When I saw this on the website, I instantly grew mad…for tartan! The lace edges reminded me also, of a few Victoria Beckham slip-inspired dresses and I adore Vic. The dress has a low back and even the extra small is a tad big for me in the front so I had to pair it with a lacy bra from American Apparel. I don't normally like to have my bra show with a low back but I thought just this once, for the God of Thunder, it will be okay.

   Even though Halloween has come and gone, I'm still feeling inspired by fairy tales and their characters. My most recent collage features a peek into Snow White's mind and what's she craving for this winter. Lots of floral, shimmer, and sophisticated shapes!

    I don't know about you but Dita Von Teese is one of my favorite style icons. I adore her vintage, feminine look and how she uses modern day pieces with her pin-up style. Below are a few shots of her around Los Angeles. I just love how she paired her floral dress with a pair of futuristic-inspired Tom Ford cat eye sunnies and small heeled pumps. (I recently acquired these sunnies through an online sale but I haven't had an idea of how to wear them until now!)
