70 degrees? I'll take it. I decided to wear one of my favorite finds from a consignment shop in NYC: a Chanel mini dress made in a delightful light cashmere. Imagine my surprise, finding it wedged between two terrible dresses from the 1980's. I just had to save it from obscurity. It goes without saying that when you wear this dress, you feel equal parts lady-like and equal parts living cupcake. Later, I topped it off with my Zara moto jacket when the weather changed. 

Chanel dress, Michael Kors gladiator sandals and Miu Miu sunnies.


   With the chill factor up in California, I've been wearing my Zara faux leather motorcycle jacket and ankle boots constantly. They're in my "favorites" rotation. Below are two different days with the same statement pieces. Hopefully the "cool factor" will overrun the "chill factor" and before we know it, summer is here!

Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day. I was certainly feeling festive. Love, kisses and red galore!

When night came around, I changed into these Charlotte Olympia Tessa heels.
L'Agent Esthar bra
"Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art-- 
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature's patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth's human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors--
No--yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever--or else swoon to death."
John Keats

      For one of my dear friend's birthday, we went to the Edwardian Ball at the Fonda Theatre in Hollywood. The party felt like a walk through a whimsical, eerie purgatory filled with ghostly victorian madams, steampunk scientists, mustached men and women in three piece suits and the occasional Mad Hatter. There was mermen, mentalist in boxes, surrealist painters and acrobatic dancers dangling from chairs and hulahoops-like contraptions in the sky. The music was a mix between New Orlean's famed funeral dirges and the roaring 20's. The long drags of the trumpet lured you into a swaying trance on the checkerboard dance floor. There was even a rendition of "Gloomy Sunday" by women dressed in colorful saris. Who knew the dead could be so lively?

    This black and gold Vivienne Westwood Anglomania dress is a fun one. It comes with removable hip pads to give the dress more volume which instantly reminded me of the circus. That served as my inspiration. To tie in the Edward Gorey theme, I brought back my "hair noose" from Halloween and used black lipstick to up the "creep" factor and put gold glitter eyeliner on my eyes and eyebrows for whimsy.

Make Up: Make Up For Ever Aqua Liner #1 (I used this on my eyes and eyebrows), Essie Polish in Velvet Voyeur,  MAC lipstick in Cherish, Anna Sui black lipstick. 
Such a fun design.

    Today was exceptionally windy but nevertheless, I decided to be "fashionable" as opposed to "warm." I'm dying over Saint Laurent's use of chiffon bows with blouses, paired with embellished jackets and skin-tight screams "matador chic!" It screams "Badass Witch meets Yves" (for those fans of American Horror Story: Coven.)
