forever spring

(lace ribbon american apparel - skirt gift - crop top DIY - jacket vintage - heels zara - backpack coach vintage)
the beauty of living in LA is that you sometimes have, even in winter, some soft and cool days 
it is like a forever spring feeling ... in winter.
i tied my hair with a lace ribbon

green houndstooth

(turtleneck, belt & pantyhose american apparel - skirt, trench coat & heels vintage - satchel polo by ralph lauren)
an holiday outfit this weekend while i was last minute gift shopping
i promised myself to be done in time this year but i have been working so much that of course i was rushing at the last second ...
well it was the perfect occasion to wear this wool, pencil skirt in a green houndstooth
and now, it is over, only the time to think about what to wear or what to do for NYE .....

little black riding hood

(pants, blouse & cape american apparel - purse & boots zara - earrings vintage)
i was the little black riding hood today and i must say i kept the cape on all day so it was cold
it is so comfy tough, like a soft blanket
i start thinkning that i would like to get it in red too...
then you have these heel boots that i own for a while and that like so many things in my closet, were waiting the good day to come out.

cozy gloomy knits

(knit dress & socks american apparel - cardigan jacket & sandals vintage)
cozy cozy time, it is getting cold and gloomy in los angeles
i love it, i finally found the ocasion to wear that knit dress i got weeks ago
i also love to spend the day in a comfortable cardigan
espcially the air can sometimes be cold in the factory ...


(pants american apparel - button-up & coat vintage - heels dolce & gabbana)
the cold days are back
i took time to tie my hair today which also means i am tired of having it long
it is just a question of finding time and the right pair of scissors
white button-up and black disco pant
i am in love with my dolce and gabbana heels...

candy cane & chocolate

(skirt american apparel - button-up & coat vintage - purse banana republic - flats tsumori chisato)
candy cane colors on my button-up
70's look on my collar, leather skirt almost black
it was a day for my chocolate ballet flats by Tsumori Chisato
i miss Japan and its fashion

plaids and traditions

(turtleneck, belt, pantyhose & shoes american apparel - shorts diy - blazer vintage - satchel polo by ralph lauren)

plaids are like tradition to me and come back every year when christmas approaches
i like to pair one with the other, different colors and rythm
brown today with my favorite tights at the moment, the black heart shape
happy friday !

bloody mary

(pants american apparel - blouse, coat & shoes vintage - purse banana republic - umbrella gift)
it was a strict outfit for a rainy day
many people talk about where they find the inspiration to create outfits everyday
in my case, i am very influenced by what I read ...
and now i am in the middle of "mary tudor, the spanish tudor" also known as bloody mary ....
she was a strong, proud and humble catholic queen and yes, she also gave birth to some of the greatest massacres of england's history.
but i decided to read this biography to learn about how she became such a vilain
anyway ..... this explain my sudden attraction for black and a more strict silhouette
i guess we all have some weird uncontrolled inspirations

color of the past

(sweater & tigths american apparel - dress school uniform - purse furla - loafers elie tahari - earrings vintage)

back to my first love for a day
some might probably remember my very early and young period of nude
when i was living in japan i had this very long attraction for anthing beige, peach, old pink and of course nude
it's weird how colors can sometimes be like old friends you didn't meet for a long time
sometimes like that, i also miss japan ...

Death Valley

Thanksgiving was this year in Death Valley
one of my favorite spot in north america
if you like the desert, you absolutely must see it
not very good outfit pictures to share with you since i was hiking most of the time
but i just hope you will enjoy the beauty of that place
nature is definitely my favorite part in America
