FSHN BNKR FT. C/MEO COLLECTIVE CULLOTES

Dear Diary,

Back again with another goody from fashion bunker. Today’s post is featuring the bottom half of my co-ord set… The culottes (see the matching top here). Culottes are a very risky piece of clothing. Depending on your body type, they can either be a hit or a miss. Being that I already have legs that never end, the hem of the pant don’t hit me at an awkward length. I guess I can count that as one of the advantages of being tall.

BNKR ft. THE C/MEO COLLECTIVE CROP

Dear Diary,

I am a lover of all things cropped. Which is why I couldn’t get enough of this voluminous top from Fashion Bunker. I purchased this top as a co-ord  set (here)  for my birthday, and the great thing about co-ords is you don’t just have to wear them as a set all the time. You also have the option of mixing and matching each piece with other articles of clothing.

PLAIN WHITE SHIRT x ANKARA SKIRT

Dear Diary,

I usually wear a lot of color and printed outfits, but lately I have been in the mood for balancing my loud pieces with plain tops or bottoms. Take this ankara pencil skirt for instance, I love the green and aubergine color combination, and the flounce bottom just makes you want to do a double-take. To keep the look simple, I paired it with a plain button up and plain sandals. Add your pop of red lips, and you’re ready to conquer the day.

IN CLOVER CANYON

Clover Canyon had a sample sale a month ago that I was dying to attend. Unfortunately I was unable to go because of my 9 to 5, but my awesome babe Faith surprised me with this gorgeous floral print short sleeve from the sale.  Don’t I have awesome friends? I am a huge lover of prints, but  what I truly adore about this shirt is how versatile it can be. In my case, I went for a outfit.  SUNDAY PRINTS 046

Fashion for Breakfast is back, and this time’s guest of honor was none other than the beautiful and talented lady behind KDIA Jewelry, Kristen Noel Crawley.

She also mentioned how she wanted to make  pieces that would stay with you forever. I had the liberty of meeting with Kristen after the breakfast, and she is such a ball of energy and simply the sweetest! Can we just talk about how amazing she looks with that baby bump? Jeez!!

KANYE WEST x STEVE MCQUEEN Pop-Up Installation at LACMA

Dear Diary,

It was pretty awesome being at the LACMA for Kanye West and Oscar-winning director Steve McQueen’s short film.  The duration of the film was 9 minutes, and shot in one take at a historic dockyard outside London. Despite my  inability to share  some images from the installation with you all, per Mr. West’s strict regulations of keeping the video exclusive to the museum, I want to compensate by leaving you with a quote from the director elaborating on the concept of the film ; “The video for Kanye West ‘s song All Day/I Feel Like That plays upon the relationship between the camera and the subject. As in a meeting between the bull and the matador, it remains unclear who chases whom within the arena. The roles of pursuer and pursued are at times inverted. Shot in a single 9 minute take with natural lighting and minimal context, McQueen accentuates the immediacy and intensity of the performer up close. Every movement of West is seen; every breath felt. It becomes apparent how the song itself fuels West’s performance, from the tornado in “All Day” to the vulnerability of I Feel Like That”
