Attempting the Monochrome Look

As you can see, I attempted the monochromatic look here but couldn't quite pull it off because of LA's chilly weather. Also, this flight jacket is really amazing and I kind of never want to part with it.

The semester is wrapping up and I have about a million things to do before winter break-- which is honestly always the case and I feel like such a boring, broken record. However, next semester I will have three days off a week so hopefully things will change. Also, will be ramping up videos come the new year. Things are changing.

The Poncho

Nothing is quite making a comeback like the poncho is this season. And I, for one, am not complaining at all. Of course, there are various renditions of the poncho, but I'm loving the sweater/cardigan version because of how easy it is to snuggle up and feel like you're in a womb or something equally as comforting. Comfort sounds really wonderful that right now considering everything in my life is changing and rearranging. Which isn't to say it's scary. I've spent a lot of my life confronting change with fear, but now I'm learning to embrace it. And embracing it is made one step easier by this poncho.

Oh, and these shoes? I love tie up any thing, but a leather and wooden wedge? Absolutely perfect. These wedges are great because they're perfect in pretty much any environment: morning brunch, late night date, city shopping or country hopping. They're versatile while still packing a punch in a way that I don't think a lot of shoes are nowadays; you can either have one or the other, not both. Unless we're talking about these babies.

Another Way To Wear The Camel Coat

There's something about the camel coat that really makes it a must have for every closet, no matter what age. Because it's been cold here in LA I've been experimenting with different ways to style it and came up with this striped maxi dress from Zara. For this outfit I felt it was all about playing with the lines-- the horizontal stripes, the longer lines of the coat and the dress, the lines of these strappy heels. Outfits can have subtext too!

The Comeback HBO Premiere @ The El Capitan

This past summer I had the incredible opportunity to play a (very) small role in HBO's relaunch of the series The Comeback starring (my idol) Lisa Kudrow. Tiny part or not, I was so ecstatic to be apart of something that will surely go down in TV history. The Comeback is brilliant, funny, painful and perfect. It's not for everyone, but those who like it are going to love it.

On Wednesday, HBO hosted the premiere of the show at the El Capitan theatre in Hollywood. It was so great to see the first two episodes and reunite with some of the people I met while working on the show. Free People sent over the perfect party dress for the event and I felt like a princess the whole night. The dress is cut in a trapeze shape, and because of the beading it just flowed and moved with me everywhere I went. It truly felt like a piece of art to wear. At first, I didn't know how I would style it and then a couple accessories came together (like my grandmother's gold ring and this amazing vintage brass clutch) and I realized I had to aim for a 1920s flapper theme-- which actually was very appropriate because I basically only associate "Hollywood Glamour" with silent film stars like Clara Bow and Gloria Swanson. All heavy beading, looped around pearls and gold. I promise I'll get better photos of the dress just so you can see how magnificent it is. Thank you Free People!

After the show, we were ushered to the Roosevelt Hotel for an after-party where the stars and guests mingled and ate some delicious hors d'oeuvres. I personally ate bread and lemon meringue pie the whole night. Oh, and also drank a lot of tea. In the future, I've resolved to always order tea at parties like this. It shows you're a class act.

The night was finished off with some screen printed Comeback-related totes. I actually detest the idea of totes in general (don't they just seem so sloppy?), but I really couldn't resist one with Lisa Kudrow's face on it. I mean, come on, could you?

Anyways! The show premiers tonight (Sunday) on HBO at 10 PM.You can also watch the Season 1 on HBOGo now. Be there or be square. Or, you know, just miss out.

Silence

Sometimes we fill our lives with just endless words, words, words. 
I'm taking a moment to pause and reflect right now. I need some silence.
