Downtown LA Artwalk

Taking Rack and Sack to the downtown LA artwalk was something I've been contemplating this month and decided to book last minute. I ran around two days before buying fixtures, tables, and everything else that comes along with a live showcase. Definitely a change from the usual online process. It was a fun experience and I lucked out with some really cool neighbors. The scarves you see hanging behind R&S's display belongs to my super sweet neighbor for the night who purchased a vintage bracelet from me and kept me warm with a lovely shawl he ended up giving me at the end of the night.

Beaches, Vintage, and Miami

I had so much fun on my trip to Miami, it's been hard to try to adjust back to normal life. I guess that always happens after a vacation, or is it just me? All good things must come to an end but these pictures help me relive the memories.

Shopping on Lincoln Rd.

Relaxing day of laying out and having Rose Sangria on the beach

 Night out at Set. I threw on an American Apparel shirt, belted it and turned it into a dress. Sometimes being so petite really comes in handy. Rack and Sack bohemian necklace and gold studs I decided to keep for myself topped the look off. It's hard to contain myself from keeping all of it to myself. The danger of keeping all of the product just one room away from my closet, I caved in.

Item Of The Day: So Groovy

These 70's, vintage metal hooped earrings are a great addition to any collection. The classic hoop style can be worn with a basic outfit like jeans and a tank, or dressed up with a more up-stated look. They're so versatile it would be hard not find endless options for this lovely pair named "So Groovy".

LookBook Additions Are Here!

Here are some shots of me playing dress up in Rack and Sack for some photos I recently added to the LookBook. My friend and naturally wonderful model, Kat, was such a great sport and so fun to shoot with... even in extremely hot conditions. She's a rock star. Can't wait for the next one!

I wasn't sure whether to discard these or embrace them. The lighting and effect wasn't intentional. I really wanted them to come out clearer but now I love the faded color and light spots. It really gives the shots an original, vintage look. Featured products - Goa and Treasure Chest

Fierce in Gold Glamour

Featured necklace - African Safari. This was one of my favorite looks. I'm so glad she had that awesome jacket that worked so well with the necklace.

I wasn't sure about this background, but ultimately I was convinced. Besides, I'm a city girl at heart so it kind of has a hidden meaning, and a vintage feel the black and white brings. As you know, I'm all about combining vintage and modern. I wore some of my favorite items for this look - Over The Rainbow, Chain Mail, and Around We Go.

A Little Weekend Inspiration

I think I'll try this tonight. I've always been a fan of blue shadow and liner.

Just because she's 60's fabulous... Wouldn't our own Gold Glamour be amazing with this?

Glitter, suede, stacked wedge, and a back zipper. All things I love combined in one.

Color Me Leopard... Again

The messy side braid - super quick, easy, and a cute alternative when you don't feel like pulling out the curling iron. This has been my go-to style for laid back days, particularly weekends. 

 Urban Outfiitters scarf, harem trousers, lace and cotton top, Sam Edelman leopard pumps, vintage rings.

Just like everyone else, I can't seem to get enough of leopard print this season. I've added leopard scarves, sweaters, blouses, and of course shoes to my closet. Might be a little much but I'm loving the use I get out of all the pieces. The print is perfect for both day and night looks. I love the effortless statement it makes.

Will I Am At L.A. Fashion Week = FUN!

Usually I only post photos that feature women's fashion BUT.... I was apart of the production team putting on Will I Am's show for L.A Fashion week among many other local designers. The show was so much fun I wanted to share these photos with all of you. It was completely hectic (especially backstage during the show) but it was such a great experience. 

Eleven hours after arriving on set, running up and down three flights of stairs about I don't know, 500 times, and the show was on! I kind of wish there was a show for me to work everyday. Dressing and styling models isn't a bad deal, not bad at all.
