Side hip is the new side boob… when you don’t have boobs, am I right?
Spent Saturday afternoon playing dress up with some blogger loveys, courtesy of new Los Angeles-based online shop AlleyCat Trade. Seriously, put us all together with a rack full of amazing clothes and it is one helluva good time.
Specially curated with a slew of my favorite Australian designers, including Shakuhachi, Bec & Bridge and Alice McCall, AlleyCat Trade is making those pieces that I lust after on international, non-U.S. shipping e-shops accessible to us here in the states.
If you are vintage-obsessed like me, then you won’t be disappointed by Project Urban Renewal (PUR) at Space 15 Twenty in Hollywood. Open until spring, the store is carefully curated by Kimberly Bruckbauer with Etsy sellers’ wares and stocked full of one-of-a-kind gems. After browsing the racks, it’s safe to say PUR is a vintage lover’s heaven.
This velvet rhinestone dotted dress with the low mesh back was my absolute favorite!
Spotted these fun shimmers in a shopper’s hair, which I now want to get for the holidays.
Mel‘s second look featuring this amazing red leather skirt — another wishlist addition!
Hillary rocked that amazing red leather jacket with the gold speckled skinny jeans. LOVE!
announcing the three best Mango styled looks of the night!
Shopper Elizabeth won a $100 Mango gift card for her chic look — a white sleeveless top, black leather mini skirt and killer pair of pumps.
Second place winner Sarah layered leggings under shorts for a great transitional winter outfit.
And the $300 Mango gift card winner is Tiara, who stood out with her mustard and eggplant color combo look! We also loved how she accessorized with the brown boots and bag, which complement the overall color palette of her outfit.
Had such a fun time hosting the MANGO shopping/styling event last week in Santa Monica! Thanks so much to everyone who came out, styled themselves in Mango from head to toe and entered the competition at the end of the night. Everyone looked SO fabulous that we ended up choosing 5 finalists, and then narrowing our choices down to the top 3. Congrats to the winners!
Special thanks to my twin sister, Melanie, for taking the majority of these snapshots and to Neekoh, Ari, Hillary, Tiara, Melissa, Liz, Steven and VaShon for being amazing friends and showing their support. ♥
