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.

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!!

Shopping Guide: Everything I Want For Fall But I'm Broke AF

The title of this post might seem semi-depressing. But don't worry, it's my birthday season and after I finish writing this I'll send this link to my non-existent boyfriend. But reallllly, I've been swooning over the new fall collections that are coming out; and I'm so head over heels in love that I get the same satisfaction out of Stuart Weitzman boots as I would be by being in a relationship. The highland boots are such a staple this year. If Kate Moss has them, I have to have them. right?

My birthday is next week (!!!!!) and I'm planning on celebrating (one of the many, many ways) by buying myself something from Androgyny Designs jewelry. All pieces are handmade here in LA by a pretty girl named Courtney and their instagram feed makes me drool. I have a couple of her pieces and I always get compliments every time I wear them. Above features the One-of-a-Kind Silver Ear Pin and the Bronze Fractured Earth Cuff. 

Another thing I have been obsessing with more than usual is stationary. I have turned into a stationary HOARDER. I just wait for any occasion to send a card in the mail. I honestly think I sent one of my friend a good luck card before she went on vacation for 2 weeks. The only thing better than sending cards, is receiving cards. And sadly, the return rate isn't doing so hot right now. But I have optimistic thoughts for my birthday. One of my favorite stationary brands right now is  Rifle Paper Co. ; anything floral is my fav. 

Discovered this new designer through their pop-up store on Abbot Kinney that is open for a few more weeks; and these bags had me at hello. Cuyana is a Bay Area brand that has been popping up around LA, previously before Venice they were at The Grove. I adore the elegant simple designs, all the bags are timeless and will never go out of style. My favorites are the Classic Leather Totes (that are made in the USA!) and the one featured above, the Cinch Shoulder Bag.
