90s child

Acne Studios moto. Elsie & Fred top. Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

High waisted jeans and suspender anythings hearken to my 90s childhood days. Remember those leggings with the straps under the heels? I wore those too (What were those about, anyway?). I've been regressing in age in these final days before my big Asia trip because these comfortable and functional pieces allow me to be a big kid and pack all the adventure I can into my last week. I actually just returned from the most amazing midweek road trip to the middle of the desert so this post is going to be cut short...this creature needs some ZZZs. Hoping to get a photo diary up by the end of this week--stay tuned!

high tide

Windsor tunic. Windsor cuff. Birkenstock shoes.

"Destination: Beach" is plastered on my brain like a "Sorry, we're closed" sign. Not mad about it. Not mad about it one bit.

diesel x feral creature

Diesel jacket. Diesel dress. Diesel jeans.

I kind of have to pinch myself that I'm working with Diesel. I've always idolized their brand--when I was a little kid, it was THE "designer label" for me, and my attempts to emulate their hedonistic, rock 'n' roll, give-no-fucks vibe probably played a big part in shaping my aesthetic today. I had the opportunity to style their Pre-Fall '14 collection and I went for the beautifully decaying rockstar approach. My favorite piece has to be this denim moto. It meets all my construction requirements for a high-end moto (for instance, functioning lapel buttons) and looks like it's been through World War III and then tossed in the mud. Isn't that delightful? Check out the rest of their Pre-Fall '14 lineup here.

antigua dreams

For Love & Lemons dress via Dailylook. Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

This dress is so amazing and ethereal; I wanted to keep the rest of the look super simple to highlight the beauty of it. I've been falling more and more in love with everything For Love & Lemons has to offer (I'm still completely gutted that I'll be in Hong Kong during their Skivvies party this summer). This dress is perfect anywhere: brunch, lunch, dinner, beach, pool...your own wedding?! And I know it's too long for me, as most maxi dresses are, but it's nothing a little snip snip won't take care of!

zero uv x feral creature lookbook pt. i

I had the pleasure of working alongside zeroUV on their latest lookbook, styling five different frames and shooting them around downtown LA. zeroUV was one of my first sponsors when I started blogging! I always was, and will continue to be, blown away by their huge selection and astoundingly low prices--most frames will cost you a mere $10. It's such a no-brainer investment, especially since any outfit can be topped off with glasses and look even better. Here is the first half of the lookbook--enjoy!

eyes wide shut

Jarlo blazer. Cameo shirt via 8th Story. LANY bag. Jeffrey Campbell shoes.

I'm always titillated when I'm able to mix prints in my favorite fashion (pardon the pun): not too loud but just loud enough. Enter this amazing blazer and shirt combo--the trick is to have them in similar color schemes and contrasting but complementary patterns. You can add staple accessories to this outstanding combo (including bags and shoes) that you wear to pieces and none would be the wiser for it. Perfect.
