LA Woman

“I’m in a mix of vintage and new. The shoes are a find from eBay—I immediately gravitated toward that cobalt blue. The silver buckle was a plus. I guess it’s the California in me, that I’m always drawn to a pop of color, something fun and bright without too much effort. I’m smitten with these trousers that have a little flair and the mustard yellow top is a crisp, cool cotton that’s perfect for any season in LA.

I always consider what jewelry I’m going to wear first when getting dressed, everything else builds from there. Right now, my big wood hoops are in heavy rotation and I pretty much don’t take them off. The good news is that they go with everything. But, if I’m going for an evening look, I’ll throw on a collar necklace or cocktail ring to start and see what clothes work best with the jewelry I have on.

My must have items are oversized earrings, vintage mules, and a cat eye sunglass. The rest is pretty constant too with a few highlights thrown in: vintage Levi’s, an irreplaceable leather jacket, and espadrilles (I wear mine year round).”
