Bright On

Del Toro Slipper, J.Crew Flats, Pons Avarcas, Superga Sneakers, Marais USA Sandals, Korkease WedgesBackground: Andy Warhol's Diamond Dust Shoes (1980)

     Last week I had a total blast at the Man Repeller x Superga event that was hosted at Fred Segal. Luckily I was able to score a free pair of bright yellow sneakers in my goodie bag (as seen on Instagram)! The color is not one I'd typically choose, but they've inspired me be more vibrant in the shoe department. 
     I put together a collection of colorful kicks ranging from classic Spanish Avarcas to velvet smoking slippers. These shoes are perfect for adding a lively pop of color to any outfit!

     During back to school shopping at Urban Outfitters I was starry eyed over a zodiac nameplate necklaceIt got me thinking about astrological fashion, which had it's big bang with the Christopher Kane Resort 2011 collection. Now galaxy prints and horoscope signs are rocketing trends.

Are you over the moon about this look or is it not in your stars?



Helmut Newton Photograph, Del Toro Slippers

     In anticipation of seeing the Helmut Newton exhibit at the Annenberg I looked up some of his work online. The x-ray image of a high-heeled foot adorned with a Cartier bracelet popped out amongst his many portraits. The photograph instantly reminded me of a pair of skeleton smoking slippers that I've been admiring. Sticks and stones may break my bones but shoes will never hurt me!


Mellow Maxi

Splendid Maxi Dress, Levi's Denim Jacket (similar here), Sam Edelman Sandals

     Picking out an outfit for the first day of school has never been a simple task for me. In past years I put a lot of thought into my look, but before beginning senior year I approached first day dressing with ease. I wore a simple black maxi and threw my distressed denim jacket over it. A mellow California girl look indeed!

What will you wear for your first day of school?


Bag to School

     To the dismay of many, school is approaching. To the delight of many, back to school shopping is beginning. 
     The perfect book bag is essential in order to properly kick off the school year. I've rounded up a rainbow of twelve "bag to school" backpacks to suit any high school fashionista's fancy.
