MCxMN Launch Party!

SO LAFiona LeahyComment

One of my favorite LA designers and sweet friend, Marrin Costello, launched her new collaboration collection with *~celebrity~* wardrobe stylist Mercedes Natalia. Pretty pearls, delicate chains with a feminine chic vibe. The collection is AMAZING. Can I have one of everything? K thx. The styling in their lookbook is drool-worthy and after flipping through it you'll have to accidentally leave it at your boyfriend's house with everything you want circled in it. Really though. 

The event took place at my go-to spot in LA to go get my makeup done, the Nars boutique on Melrose. Super cute if you've never been, totally better than going to a department store makeup counter. Here are a few of my favorites from the MCxMN collection (featured above): Polkadot Bralette ($238), Thread Earrings ($48), and Pearl Drop Lariat ($88). Check out her entire line here

Here are a few photos from the pretty pretty event. Thank you Marrin so much for having me!! xx

When In Rome....

TRAVEL, MY LOOKSFiona LeahyComment

Totally fell in love with Italy. A world where gluten-free doesn't exist and it is totally necessary to try a new flavor of gelato everyday. One of my favorite areas in Rome is Via del Boschetto. This is a trendy neighborhood in an ancient city. It is packed with pop-up floral stores, handmade jewelry, and my all-time favorite: vintage stores. The vintage shopping here is unreal. You will find designer vintage treasures in every other store. I would of shopped a lot more than I did if I wasn't backpacking across the country, but I just HAD to have this coat the moment I saw it. It's vintage Yves Saint Laurent. YSL forever is my favorite designer, and my first love. This coat is a alpaca, mohair and wool blend. Since the brand makeover of YSL turned into Saint Laurent Paris in 2012 due to the new creative director, I actually melt every time I see a vintage YSL label. 

I found this coat at a small funky boutique, Pulp. And I still have nightmares about the Moschino floral sweater that I didn't end up buying. It'll probably haunt me for a couple more months to be completely honest. 

Coat worn with all black everythaaang underneath, and Nikes since I seriously just walked all over the city all day. I would never wear workout shoes with this coat, but it kinda looks street style hip in some weird way. Right?

Barbie Loves Wildfox!

A DAY IN THE LYFE, SO LAFiona LeahyComment

Barbie LOVES Wildfox Collection launched and it's every girl's pink childhood dream come true.  It was a pizza party with grown-up drinks such as blush-colored martinis that matched my hot pink lipstick. The Swarovski crystal ice cream truck was back to serve sweet treats and hand out glowstick jewelry. Barbie's pink Corvette was parked out front next to the red carpet.  Party was at the new flagship store in Sunset Plaza, which looks even dreamier with the holiday light decorations outside right now.

My favorite pieces from the collection: Miss America Malibu Pullover, Call Me Walk Of Shame Tee, and the Happy Cat Oversized Sweatshirt. All the pieces are a fun funky look perfectly paired with high-wasited skinnies or vintage denim Levi cut-offs.
