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.

Go Gala 2014 at The Montage in Beverly Hills

A DAY IN THE LYFE, SO LAFiona LeahyComment

First things first, met my (future) boyfriend Robert Pattinson. Hey, Rob.

I attended the Go Campaign Gala last Thursday night at The Montage in Beverly Hills. The Montage is one of my go-to places to go in west LA when I have nothing to do. My best friend Lauren and I would always go to the rooftop bar with Starbucks to kill time before going out on the town and causing trouble in my teenage years. The Montage is a gorgeous hotel and the architecture and gardens get me every time. 

Go Campaign is an organization that improves equal opportunity to unprivileged children. The event included an auction to benefit the campaign and raise awareness. The venue included the most beautiful vibrant flowers scattered everywhere, handmade truffles and belly dancers. 

One of the attendees of the event was Robert Pattinson. To be completely honest, I haven't even seen all the Twilight movies. After this night though, I am most definitely 'Team Edward.' And one time my dad and I drove through Forks if that counts for anything. I talked with Rob about the organization and asked him if he goes back to the UK often. Turns out that we'll both be there over the holidays. I was waiting for him to invite me go on a ride on the London Eye with him or take all the escalators in Harrods...but he didn't. Obviously my future soulmate is playing hard to get. I can play games too, Rob.

Take Me to Wildfox! Wildfox Couture Flagship Store Grand Opening 10/16/14

SO LA, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

To this day, I’ve never read a company’s mission statement that I’m more in love with than the one for Wildfox Couture. “For dreamers, for lovers, for skinny dippers, for barefoot explorers, for late night chocolate eaters, for those who believe in love and themselves.” Wildfox is a whimsical dream; I have always been a fan of their quirky screen tees, legendary ad campaigns and watching their swim show at Miami Fashion Week.

I am SO excited for Wildfox to have their own store and it is conveniently located in the most charming blush colored bungalow located in Sunset Plaza on Sunset Boulevard. I attended the grand opening party of the flagship store last Thursday night, and to my prior knowledge I know that Wildfox parties don’t disappoint.

The party included a sushi bar, complimentary manicures, lavish floral arrangements, a ping-pong table and of course an ice cream truck covered in Swarovski crystals. Red carpet guests included Alessandra Ambrosio (who I haven’t seen since I attended her birthday earlier this year, lol) and Scott Disick (who kindly patted me on the back and said “excuse me”, another lol).

If you were to ask me what my favorite thing about Wildfox is, I would have to say their denim. The Marissa Boyfriend Jeans actually make my heart skip a beat, and the Marianne skinnies are the perfect compliment to any oversized tee. The denim designer, Michelle Siwy, is a dear friend of mine and her creations get more desirable by the minute. She even made overalls! I promise they’re cute.

I’m also so in love with the swim collection. Probably the cutest one pieces, like ever. Roam into the store and see for yourself. My words don’t do justice to how dreamy this place is. And I can’t think of any other adjectives that can describe the store other than dreamy, that’s why I’m so repetitive. Go visit Wildfox, it’s absolutely breathtaking!
