**~CoaCHeLLa~** Day 1

MY LOOKS, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

I'm sure everyone is already sick of Coachella pictures at this point, because I am. But I need to share just so it was known that I was there. I have had this Zimmermann shirt on display in my room for at least three months; it is the most beautiful piece I've ever bought. I'm in love with the gorgeous silk floral pattern. I paired it with jean shorts (I know, so basic of me)  and threw on every accessory to look *~FeStiVaL ChiC~*. I'm really trying guys.

I ended day 1 of Coachella by saying a prayer for every girl I saw wearing a floral crown to the festival. In case you didn't know, it is the year 2016 and that is not okay anymore. So don't be that girl. And don't let your friend be that girl either. *rolling eyes emoji*

Anyways, what are your favorite Coachella looks? I had so much fun being back in the desert and already can't wait till the next festival.

Wearing shirt from one of my favorite Aussie designers Zimmermann, quartz ring by Androgyny Designs, Sunglasses by Kristin Perry, turquoise ring from Vanessa Mooney and denim shorts from Urban Outfitters. Pictures with gal pals Lauren Manix and Monique Rodgers.

 

 

You Make It Real

SO LA, MY LOOKSFiona LeahyComment

An easy on-the-go outfit featuring my favorite basics for the not so basic. Tank and leggings by one of my favorite Los Angeles-made brands, Morrison Grey. Each piece is carefully dyed to transform into your new favorite everyday shirt. I wear mine anywhere from underneath a blazer to the office to over a sports bra to pilates. It's challenging to find any shirts made with super soft modal that doesn't start accumulating small little annoying holes everywhere after a couple wears. I have worn and washed all my Morrison Grey tops several times and they always stay in ~PeRFeCT CoNDiTioN~*

House of Harlow 1960 Pop-Up Shop X The Grove

SO LAFiona LeahyComment

More than the daughter of a musical legend and all grown up from her reality days on The Simple Life (showing that there is hope for all of us);  Nicole Richie has made a name for herself for being a fashion icon. Just a smidge above five foot, Richie has reinvented herself as a style savvy goddess. Nicole Richie is idol-esqué. I dont know if I've ever really said that I've idolized anybody except probably my father. So this is kind of a big deal.

I have been following Richie's line, House of Harlow 1960 for years. She has been the creative force behind the line since it launched back in 2009; the brand has a feel of vintage inspiration while being fashion-forward, as well as timeless all at the same time.  HOH is mostly known for it's fashion jewelry, being top-sellers at stores such as Nordstrom and Neiman Marcus.  Nicole debuted her new line at a pop-up shop at The Grove and for the first time ever featuring clothing, sunglasses, home goods, jewelry and vintage pieces curated by Nicole herself. I attended the grand-opening party that had sushi rolls and bubbly,  and with all 5'1 of Nicole being swallowed in the crowd as she went around to greet her guests. At this event I was most excited about seeing the new clothing collection. When I first lock eyes with a garment it's a matter of seconds before I'm lifting up the left bottom corner to check the care-label. Textile classes have ingrained this in my habits to the point where it's just done subconsciously.Great story: one time I was on a first date and I was more concerned about this guy's shirt than how many siblings he had, and I honestly don't remember anything he talked about except for the fact that I actually real life asked him what kind of fabric his shirt was made out of. He did the typical shrug-shoulders-post-typical-guy-response of 'i don't know' mixed in with a  3 second dead stare where he probably asked himself where he found this girl....~(tinder :-)))))~ Moral of the story is this boy will forever be remembered in my heart and soul as 100% pima cotton xoxo. Annnyyyways, I was so impressed when looking at House of Harlow care label tags and reading that they are made here in the U.S.A! With some garments being made with fine silks, it is becoming harder and harder to find quality clothing being manufactured here. Even though they are more expensive, I am willing to pay more knowing that the maker was paid with fare wages. 

My favorite pieces from the new collection are below! The House of Harlow pop-up shop will be open at The Grove in Los Angeles until July 19th and also can be found on their website.





Wedding Attire For The Dateless Looking For A Date

MY LOOKS, TRAVELFiona LeahyComment

I lack photos of this magical wedding because I was busy having too much f u n. My very dear cousin Kelly got married this past weekend in the mountains of Vail, Colorado to her boyfriend of 10 years (!!?@$%), Marcus. I think I have a better chance of owning 10 dogs before I'm in a relationship for 10 years to be completely honest. Vail is one of the most beautiful places I've ever traveled. Mostly known for it's ski slopes in the winter, this place isn't given enough credit for it's summer beauty. 

This dress has been collecting dust in my closet just waiting to be worn. It was one of those impulse buys where I had no idea where I would wear it at the time but it was sooooo pretty that I felt like me buying it would initiate world peace or stop global warming.  The intricate beading is so pleasing to the eye that weeks before the wedding I just had it displayed in my room with it hanging from my curtain rod. 

The wedding cake toppers were free-hand drawn by my very talented cousin Megan. Absolutely unreal! Kelly and Marcus live in San Francisco, and she perfectly drew the Golden Gate Bridge! See more of her cookie designs here: June Bug and Moo

Dress by Parker New York, shoes from Topshop, ring by Spell and The Gypsy Collective and clutch is vintage that belonged to my grandma. xx
