Elyse Walker Pink Party

Saturday night was the sixth annual Elyse Walker Pink Party. The party which took place at Hollywood hotspot Drais, raised money for breast cancer research. Jennifer Garner was the host and there were other celebrities there, Marcia Cross, Denise Richards and Michelle Trachtenberg just to name a few. Besides eating yummy appetizers like mini slider burgers my favorite part of the night was the fashion show which featured designs from Elizabeth and James, Roberto Cavalli, and Stella McCartney.

rock jewels

The annual Abbot Kinney Festival was today in Venice. Hundreds of people, vendors and food came out for popular, artsy street fair. I spotted this fabulous jewelry by Jessica Matrasko, which is all composed of rough cut gemstones and minerals....totally up my ally! I ended up getting the tiny quartz earrings (second picture) in chrome.   Pin It

leather jacket inspiration

Love the way Ashley Olsen is wearing her leather jacket in a layed-back way, throwing in a pop of color with the red McQueen scarf. I just bought this Doma Leather jacket on eBay and I'm so excited to start wearing it. What do you think of this look? Pin It

shred it up

How rad are these handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces by Lekuin??!  I found these specialty pieces at Planet Blue and they make me wanna shred all of my t-shirts.  My favorite piece is for sure the tie-dye poncho.  I'd wear that thing ALL the time! Pin It

old timey picnic

These pictures are actually from Labor Day but I'm just posting them now...oops!  Matt packed us a picnic, putting the turkey sandwiches and potato chips in  vintage enamel-ware cases and pink lemonade in mason jars. We headed down to the beach for some good people watching and to enjoy the beautiful sunny day. How cute is this picnic basket on Etsy? When is the last time you had a picnic?

le fleece c'est chic

TopShop is always my go-to for tough yet sophisticated jackets.  Ever since Burberry did their shearling jackets on the runway, I've wanted a more everyday version to call my own. I think I may have to get the faux sheepskin flying jacket on the top left. Pin It

leopard lust

Leopard accessories are back in more than ever, I'm spotting them EVERYWHERE this season. Above are a few pieces that I'm absolutely lusting for.  Kate Moss rocked her leopard bag the right way back in the 90's with a simple tank and classic jeans. What leopard-print pieces do you have in your wardrobe?

last day of august

When I was a kid I would always get sad when September rolled around because I knew the fun summer days were over and that I'd have to start school.  Now that I'm an adult I still get kind of sad but this time it's because I feel like I should be starting school and I'm not. Anyways, here are a collection of random pictures from the day before September 1st.  Me sitting on a blue chair in our front yard, a picture of the "Venice" lights at sun down, Matt and I riding in his truck and my boston terrier in the midst of a yawn.
