Desert Dreamland

A DAY IN THE LYFE, MY LOOKS, TRAVELFiona LeahyComment

Had a day-getaway to the desert. It's getting to the time if year that if you go there you can only be wearing a bikini, so this outfit isn't something i'd wear IRL (in real life). Especially the over-the-knee boots. Anyways, I love the detailing on the all silk dress, it's super beautiful up close and makes it stand out from your usual LBD.

**~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.

Teal Kitty Takes Playboy Haunted Mansion

SO LA, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

There are some nights that I have in LA that are so good that the first thing I do when I wake up the next morning, is call my dad. Even before reviewing what I want to delete off my snapchat story or looking in a mirror to see how raccoon my eyes look. "Hi Dad, I went to a Halloween party at the Playboy Mansion last night." He had a few questions and concerns. 

I'm really not good at Halloween at all. The concept of me trying to  create my own costume from scratch via sewing machine gives me such bad anxiety that it makes me want to crawl under my sewing machine desk and cry. I whipped this costume together without financial damage, just creating an unforeseen tornado in my room and my bathroom sink looked like  we sacrificed the blood of a small mammal.  I wish I was more of a Pinterest hoe and could give you all these DIY ideas on how to look bomb dot com on this spooky day or wish that I didn't have ADHD and could make it through a YouTube makeup tutorial further than 30 seconds. But honestly I just threw something together within minutes. Thrift store shopping is my go-to. I love digging through racks to come up with inspiration. I have THREE more costumes I need to come up with to get through this weekend. Tell me all your ideas!!

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~*

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

 

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?

Violet Grey on Melrose Place

A DAY IN THE LYFE, SO LAFiona LeahyComment

This place is total hidden gem just waiting to be discovered. Was on Melrose Place window-shopping seeing the new collection at Chloe and a gal who worked there told me I should check out Violet Grey across the way. This is the cutest little shop that has all the best beauty products used within the industry. They carry the best of every brand from Tom Ford, Mac Cosmetics, Nars, Dior, YSL and so many more. This is a one-stop destination to get the finest must-have products without have to shuffle through an entire line on various counters. This is so much better than be overwhelmed by bright florescent lights at a department store.

All sales representatives are make-up artists themselves, and you can make appointments to get your makeup done here too! I was greeted and chatted by Merrady, who was very knowledgeable about all the products on the shelves. Loved this little store and cant wait to come back soon! xx
