Moto to Love

This is my black vegan leather moto jacket and you may as well get familiar with her because I like to take her out a lot. She’s a supremely versatile date who I can bring just about anywhere and have her fit in quite nicely. Why have I assigned a gender to my jacket? Because she’s worth it! Here I’ve paired the jacket with a textural, sparkly gold, elbow-length-sleeve dress I scooped at Forever 21. I wore this dress to the opening night party of W Magazine’s Shooting Stars photography exhibit here in Los Angeles a few months ago, and let me just say this, when Peter Dundas notices your dress from across a crowded room (for all the right reasons), you’ve done good. Yes, it was the most fun night I’ve had in a loooong time and I give full credit to the frock. These Dolce Vita booties weren’t with me that evening, but as the newest bits of fodder for my shoe fetish, they are here to stay.

Game Changer

Every now and then I’ll stumble across an item of clothing that is a game changer. I can wear it lots of different ways, and no matter how I style it, I always feel fierce. These gold shorts from Forever 21 have been with me for years and I’ve worn them almost like a staple whenever I’m going for maximum impact with the least amount of effort. I’ve worn them to a Nylon magazine issue release party and to a gallery opening hosted by Jeremy Renner (yes he’s super cute in person), to name just two. They are really comfortable, and the high waist makes them more interesting and modern than if they sat even just a little lower. Here I’ve paired them with a basic black tank from A/X Armani Exchange, a military jacket and a caged ankle boot from Dolce Vita. Somehow they always just work. Or werq. Depending on who you ask. The sparkle? Well, that just speaks for itself.
