Oh, the places you’ll go

rsz_img_0302

El Matador beach for example.

Day trips to Malibu NEVER fail anyone and especially my California crazed, barefoot self as I’m soaking my dreams into the cold Pacific sea, frizzy bleached hair and mermaid attitude all together. I even got used to coconut water (drinking straight from the coconut is always better, thank you Whole Foods).

In dire need of surf lessons (how cool is that -definitely surfer owned- hand painted house?) and a tan.

Adventure and the new issue of Nylon awaits. For the rest, the Pacific Coast Highway will lead the way.

I’m wearing my new favourite Forever 21 floral top (the dress version here), denim shorts, pom pom sandals, bag, Chanel necklace (a cute, customisable alternative here) and mirrored pink Wildfox sunglasses

Doing time in Hollywood

View More: http://kathydeninnophotography.pass.us/filio-all-you-need-is-style

I’ve waited a long time for this.

Doing time in Hollywood (West mostly) is full of enchanted surprises, vibrant purple jacarandas, street art in every little corner, the smell of deep fried goodness but most of all the endless possibility of doing what you really desire.

I’ve got palm trees in my eyes, endorphins flowing through my body and the most intense love affair with this place.

LA is a trap.

Well. We weren’t supposed to take any pictures.

But then again, in Mike Kelley‘s own words, let’s talk about disobeying.

Creepy never looked so good and even if it’s more of a mindf*ck than expected, it’s definitely nothing a Mexicali Taco & Co taco break and a stroll around little Tokyo can’t fix.

A must see.

Bossy

View More: http://kathydeninnophotography.pass.us/filio-all-you-need-is-style

Downtown LA is starting to grow on me especially when visits to the Last Bookstore and Bottega Louie are included. Feeling like a hot (81 Fahrenheit) mess and not even coconut water can do anything for me at this point.

I’m high on imagery, low on sugar (well not really, had a delicious double chocolate scone at Alfreds’ a little while ago) and generally infatuated.

Magic City.

I wanna be a plastic toy

rsz_img_0002

There is another world but it is inside this one and it’s full of rainbow backgrounds, rust and stardust and the worlds best hot dogs.

You breathe in the magic, you lay down on the grass sipping coconut water, on Sundays you go to the flea market and your heart beats faster when the neon lights turn on. And if you’re not hypnotised enough you wonder if it’s all a dream.

You just don’t leave this place.

Life in color

rsz_img_0143

Downtown LA is really FULL of surprises. Take this Kim West mural for example. You can’t but just fall in love with it.

Although I don’t even know anymore, I’m kind of in love with everything and everyone at this point.

Hidden gems everywhere, from the more obvious street style graffitis to cool 20 guest restaurants and dimly lit rooftop patios. The days are pleasingly innocent but the nights.. the nights are pure magic, shining through neon lights.

Life in color, high on sunshine, dreams do come true.

Verameat x All You Need Is Style

rsz_img_0178

I might have stumbled upon the Verameat store by accident but it was a case of pure coup de foudre with those amazing jewellery pieces.

My obsession started with the pepperoni pizza necklace (it’s not leaving my neck anytime soon) -pizza is a girls best friend after all- and went over the hill with off beat stacks of rings (I mean more is more), the naked woman’s body talisman and my very Greek and pretty amazing headpiece. Which I will be sporting 24/7 by the way.

And I’m sure it ain’t stopping there (the vertebrae “keeping it together” charm is definitely next).

Handcrafted, made of recycled silver and pure 14 K gold, the Verameat designs are truly unique and quintessentially edgy. Exactly what you need.

So go get your pieces with a 10% discount by using this code online or in store! ALLYOUNEEDISSTYLE (expires in July)

Today

IMG_9901 My today.

Downtown. Mashti Malones ice cream (real crushed oreos for the win). Co driver speaking french. Heatwave. Greystone mansion (that beauty and THOSE murders). Palm trees for hours. XL Red Bull. Iggy Azalea. In love.

I wanna be buried in number 5 and a Green Card to live happily ever after in LA until then.

Thanx.

Summer Stripes- Shorts Edition

_74A2084low Shorts to love, shorts to keep, shorts to show off. 

From crop tops, blazers and sneakers in the morning to buttoned up collar shirts and pumps to easily take you to evening (and thus way better entertainment options), shorts are not to be kept hidden away in your closet. On the contrary; pull them out, style them up a million different ways (those high waisted options are really chameleons) and enjoy a walk or two, or better even a few dancing moves. You don’t suppose you’re gonna just sit wearing those, right?

Just remember to keep those legs soft and shiny (my favorite product is Benefit’s Bathina)!

So, I’m back in the city of Angels.

It’s taken me a while to figure things out but I have now. Everything in my life was leading to this day, with tiny destiny steps.

It’s the big things, the way I’m loving EVERYTHING right now, how I’m mingling with the universe and enjoying life. Drunken, that’s how I’ve been feeling.

But also the little things: late night grocery shopping at Ralphs, getting my hair super ombre at Andy Lecompt salon (where it all begun, Dennis is THE BEST) next to Sam Ronson (she did hers pink), admiring the view all day, everyday (palm trees for hours- and then some), taking pure barre classes in Hollywood(intense but worth it) and getting my chocolate dose right after that from a cupcake ATM.

In essence being a true California girl (though I have always been one at heart). I won’t even tell you about In-N-Out, it’s just around my block (imagine the torture).

Sunbleached kisses from a very, very happy girl.
