Honestly I don't know if burgundy is considered in style right now, but i'm really into it. Dark reds are usually a Fall time thing but I recently dyed my hair a shade of crimson (which is sadly fading terribly) so i've been trying to match. One of my go-to easy looks is always a graphic tee and high-waisted jeans with booties. I recently splurged on these Margot Boots by Rag and Bone that went on sale. Paired with my new vintage-feel shirt (half linen/half cotton=dreamy) by Current/Elliot and my favorite black skinny jeans by Paige.
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~*
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.
