You guys…I bought this jacket on a whim in New York (3+ glasses of wine in). One of those purchases where you know you want it, but then you feel guilty because you cannot afford it. BUT… then I found out the jacket is called “Laura”. Obviously meant to be.

One of my favorite things to do is combine edgier staples with girlie pieces: hence the leather/sweetie heart skirt combo. Until SF gets a little warmer (God, please!), I will be duplicating this look left and right.

OH! Have you voted for me yet? So excited that I have made it to the final round of Elle and Nokia’s Search for the Next Style Correspondent contest. I really appreciate the support! <3

Never underestimate the power of a perfect white tee. I have worn this one for years (literally, years), and it makes me wish I had bought ten of them. Ideal for those roll out of bed days — we all have them — or to tone down a pair of cRazYpants like the ones you see above. It’s all about the basics, baby!

So bad it’s good.

To start the weekend off right, Blake and I figured we’d treat ourselves to a little In and Out Burger. It’s located in Fisherman’s Wharf…a part of town we don’t typically frequent unless, well, we’re going to In and Out. While pushing our way through the crowds, I spotted So Good Jewelry. This store is basically a glorified gift shop that happens to specialize in cheap, tacky accessories. While cruising around, the shopkeeper hiding in the corner discretely slipped me a scratch-off card reading “Everyone’s a winner” without saying one word. I did the obvious, and discovered that I was the winner of a 10% off everything discount. SOLD!

I spotted this giant ball and chain necklace and knew it had to be mine. It’s probably the ugliest thing I own but I think that’s part of the reason I love it! In fact, I’d be lying if I didn’t say it inspired this entire outfit.

Holy Hair! from the Alexander Wang show.

How I wish my hair was this long/thick. Loving the gorgeous messy braids adorned by Alexander Wang’s models.

The natural makeup is stunning, and check out those brows! Très Chic.

Though we’ve only known each other a short time, it’s probably evident that I am a shoe girl. High heels? I’m a fan! Skyscraper-tall? Even better! But, these babies have me stopped cold in my tracks…

Alexander McQueen’s SS 2010 Python Armadillo Shoes are, well, a little over the top. I feel as if they are going to pull a Transformers and convert into some sort of dinosaur. And the British Vogue gals can’t walk in them – that’s aught to tell you something about their wearability (in case the fact they’re a foot tall does not)…

More power to the models who rocked these down the runways!

FREAKY or FASHION? You be the judge…
