Stylist Picks: rebeccaminkoff is always a little bit edgy, a little bit sporty and all around a functional yet cool city girl. This season is no different with all the basics covered but everything has a twist. Perfect blouses with skinny slouchy trousers, excellent coats and feminine calf skimming skirts. The pale colors interspersed with deep bordeaux and navy are a nice balance.

Yesterday I wore a relaxed outfit for the “first” day of #NYFW and I made a cute video on the new @Vineapp.
I kept warm with a layer of heattech from Uniqlo underneath. Here you have palazzo pants from Something Else, knit c/o Naked + Famous Denim, blouse by Rebecca Minkoff, scarf c/o Nicholas K, leather and denim jacket by Henry Duarte, fur vest c/o Fur Elise and booties c/o 8020 Shoes.
I am getting used to this sunshine life. It’s the middle of November and I am wearing just a silk blouse, with my sleeves rolled up. Yeah, it’s nice. The roses in the courtyard don’t quit and the super-tall palm trees make me think of Muppets. Yes, always a kid at heart. Off to another lunch meeting, the blouse is on trend and a little bit punk-rock with the studded shoulders. Wide leg jeans are now easy to get away with since I am always wearing heels because driving is easy and I am not trudging through the subways anymore. I am getting used this. Slowly the homesickness fades.

You can’t tell but I have major platforms on. Get height.
It’s no secret I am obsessed with the color combination of pink and orange and all it’s slight variations. (Check out those lips!) I look at these photos and still can’t believe I am in open toe shoes. This is such a spring-time look but it’s I suppose it is fall here in LA. It is just starting to get a little chillier. I see girls rocking fur coats and heavy coats but it seems ridiculous to me. Am I supposed to wear my major fall wardrobe and pretend it feels appropriate when the sun is warm and it is a pleasant 70 degrees?
I am a NYC girl afflicted with the condition of seasonal fashion confusion. SFC. That’s the technical term for it.

I wasn’t planning on getting all patriotic with my look today but if it reminds someone to vote subliminally, well, then, that is a good thing. I am nervous today. I think Obama needs the next 4 years to really get all his plans into effect. CHANGE can happen, but not overnight.
Anyhoo, onto the fashion… I am wearing a Rebecca Minkoff tee-shirt under the striped sweater c/o SuperDry. My favorite boyfriend jeans are c/o AGAVE Denim and the sweet yellow sandals c/o Sole Society. Riding my bike means I need a back pack and this one is c/o Nixon. My accessories are KBL sunnies, vintage bling and belt, and Marc by Marc Jacobs pear and as usual, my bird ring from Echo of the Dreamer.

I haven’t done an ootd post in ages. I’m going for a slightly mad housewife vibe. Maybe stylish or bonkers, who can tell!
