I scream. For Ice Cream.

IMG_6633

I SCREAM FOR ICE CREAM.

I actually scream for many reasons ice cream being a prominent one. I guess it’s a childhood remnant of when my dad used to bite off half of my popsicle claiming to be IRS.

Imagine my distress.

From then on and with my shrinks appraisal, I do not let anyone anywhere near my melting property.

I wish I was giving ice cream away (and I very well might at some point so stay tuned), instead I’m giving you a how-to-copy-the-look with this sweater (mine is from H&M), ankle grazer skinny jeans, fringed boots Pinko (a flat version here), military hat bought in Russia, Asos bucket bag, faux fur leopard coat Pull & Bear

Lickable.

Are we in Paris yet?

IMG_6486 2

There’s nothing more effortlessly cool than a pair of trustworthy skinny jeans (ripped at the knee being a plus) paired with a simple gray t shirt and a leather jacket. You can call it Parisian Chic 101. And you can trust the French. They invented macarons.

From a casual day outing to a PFW paparazzi pic, this outfit saves the day-toujours. Invest in plain basics with a feminine fit, stick to black, gray and white, add a signature piece (you don’t have a fringed jacket, seriously ???) and you’ll be fine.

Paris awaits.

Do it like the Parisians: Fringed leather jacket, skinny jeans, Sante shoes, belt, soft clutch bag, grey t shirt Zara

Diva Is A Female Version Of A Hustler

IMG_8151

In the eternal battle between SURFER VS SKATER I must say, I’m really bad at decision making. Still, you always have to try all options to know your s*it. And Venice Beach is definitely the place to be for a little experiment. Right behind the amazing -waves crashing all over- beach, with surfers being the obvious sight seeing attraction, there lies the skatepark, with cool Vans and mid calf socks clad skaters. Since I am a good sport..

..I am taking lessons. In both.

Life is hard. I know.

Sock it up!

IMG_6389This post only exists cause of these American Apparel dotted socks.

And that’s reason enough for me. I take great pride in the oversized denim jacket as well (flea market find if you must know). As for the beanie it took a couple of hours to turn it from plain ol’ black to this pearl enhanced chic-er version and I’m planning on continuing the habit (aka e-shop soon on the blog).

In other news, the plaid skirt is old (but I love its’ bubble shape and this one here), the Stan Smiths are signed (a web exclusive red version here) and Bambi is still alive, after a LOT of adventuring in Cali (get the matching wallet here).

We are so back.

(outfit details coming soon)

Watch out for the zombies!

CALIFORNICATION Food Edition

Screen Shot 2014-10-31 at 2.52.18 PM

My moms biggest fear while I was in LA was that I would not eat. It’s safe to say, I made her proud.

The only thing I DIDN’T try was Ethiopian and only cause I had to prioritise, hope you’ll understand. Now that I think about (and look at) it I contemplate 2 things:

1. I will have to die on the treadmill

2. I could have bought a really nice handbag from Barney’s instead.

The Eaters feel me (and probably hate me cause of THAT In-N-Out picture) but until they take the article down you can read all about my gastro adventures here.

STAY HUNGRY

Mel’s Drive In

IMG_6264

If you haven’t tried the burger – milkshake combo you haven’t really lived. Americans know their food (I get it, sounds “challenging”, I felt the same before trying the bacon donut revelation but now I know) and who am I to argue that?

Open late (that’s a wonder for LA standards) it’s there (and there too- multiple locations) to fill up your stomach with those much needed filthy fried calories and yummy sugar molecules.

The dense chocolate milkshake is so worth it. Besides, calories after 2 am don’t count. Or  you don’t really recall much about them the day after.

Works for me.

—-> Mel’s Drive In (my favourite is on Sunset, open 24-7)

Wearing Urban Outfitter mens shirt (a festive version here), Levi’s shorts, leather ballerinas, Chanel 2.55 (a nice Givenchy alternative here), round sunglasses (my favs here)

SHEER & SPARKLING and my Sunday ritual

DSC02868

Sunday ritual consists of the following:

Visiting the Melrose Trading Post flea market (you never know what you’ll find, vintage jewellery, cool fedoras, ripped jeans for $5 or yummy treats), Cacao Me Crazy smoothie from the Zugo Truck, the mandatory #ootd pics cause EVERY wall in LA is an outfit post wall (I LOVE the cool art here) and then off to (officially) brunch. Aka american (meaning huge) pancakes with oreo cookies on the actual dough, mega mint iced tea with ginger and people watching. So much people watching. Then it’s WF time for magazines and raw coconut water just before throwing a blanket on the grass at a (dog?) park until it’s time for a movie at the Arclight or the Grove.

Apply, enjoy and repeat.

After all I’m a traditional girl.

Wearing shirt dress (similar here and here), see through dress worn as skirt from Urban Outfitters (a nice alternative here and a black version here), leather ballerina flats, round sunglasses, Chanel 2.55 (a classic alternative here), hamsa necklace (a gold design here)

P’Trique & I!

DSC01936

We both love blonde hair and supersized cat eye sunnies, wearing maxi dresses and admiring high fashion. P’Trique and I. Who cares if he has a beard (blonde one too) and I wax? We don’t have to agree to everything.

We met at the Beautycon conference in LA (he was a guest speaker I was a VIP guest – still can’t believe THAT Nyx goodie bag!) and instantly connected (online). There’s just so much about blonde hair that brings people closer.

Wearing a certain someone on a tee being one of them. #Together_Forever #Love_You_P’Trique!

Proudly wearing P’Trique’s The Platform tee (a rad alternative here), denim cut offs from the flea market, my favourite silver Supergas, Topshop faux fur clutch, The Neshama Project hamsa necklace and my happy smile as per usual

LACMA

IMG_6254

LACMA never gets boring. Save for the tar pits (where they did find interesting mammoth fossils), the giant stone called Levitated Mass and the crazy variety of food trucks outside, the inside is also full of wonders: Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse, Lichtenstein, Hockney and a whole lot more of utter greatness. You can just sit there for hours. So when the night falls, you get to see Chris Burden’s Urban Light aka 202 lit antique street lamps.

It’s a sight for sore eyes.

As for me, I am wearing a great flea market find, this see through kimono with embroidered sleeves (similar here), gray denim shorts, white tank top, combat boots, Celine sunglasses, Samudra pouch
