MY LOOKS, SO LAFiona LeahyComment

It's finally starting to get a little bit brisk here in Los Angeles. But obviously not that cold if I'm still able to wear a dress with bare legs. One of my favorite throw together go-to looks is wearing an oversized dress with booties. The style is chic and totally effortless. And if you really want to go a step further and look like you have your life together, just brush your hair. I'm sporting a pair of velvet shoes that make me think of Lana del Rey and blueberry pie all at the same time. 

Had a fun day with my sister today at Barbara's Brewery, one of the most hidden gems in East LA. If you like artist's lofts, succulents and an IPA, you have to venture out here sometime. Dress from LF, bag by Ted Baker London, shoes by Report Signature, and sunglasses by Wildfox Couture.  

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!!

Purple Magazine X Milk Studios

SO LA, A DAY IN THE LYFEFiona LeahyComment

The only thing  in my life that was equivalent to having a Purple Magazine party in Los Angeles is when Boiler Room came to this city last summer. I have worshipped this publication like a holy testament that is responsible for my life aspirations. Every page feeds my soul and contains the most beautiful images. Inspirational to say the least. 

The event was to celebrate the new exhibit at Milk Studios, Anthracite by Oliver Zahm. See more photos from the party here. 

I'm wearing a dress by Burning Torch (made out of one of my favorite textiles, cupro), hat by Brixon, leather shoes from All Saints and clutch from Urban Outfitters. My unbelievably amazing nail ring was custom made by Androgyny Designs, I'M OBSESSED. All the jewelry from Androgyny is made here in LA by the cutest sweetest gal named Courtney. Luv her.

My arm cuff and body chain are a little preview of what I will be taking with me to the desert to Coachella. They are both made by London designer Gina Melosi. Her pieces are made out of recycled metals and fair-trade gemstones. See more here.
