Military Jacket for Spring + Litas

This is embarrassing. But, I have so many back-up outfit posts from two months ago that I haven't posted... including this. This look might seem familiar to you already if you've seen my previous video on my YouTube channel. But anyway, this is what I wore about almost two months ago when I went to the Amplify 2013 concert. My Jeffrey Campbell Litas are staples for me when I go to a concert.

Incognito | Faux Leather Baseball Cap + Destroyed Jeans

Ever since the boyfriend has been living in a hotel for a month (for work reasons), I've been spending my days in Downtown LA during the weekends. For a major city, Los Angeles downtown area is actually pretty dead on the weekends. I guess the nightlife is only wide awake in Hollywood. But one good thing about a pretty deserted area is it makes a good backdrop for outfit pictures :).


Barneys New York 2013 Sale Picks: Top 21 Small Leather Goods and Bags

So yesterday, I've rounded up my top shoe picks for Barneys New York Sale. And clearly, it didn't stop there. Obviously, I needed to also visit the bag section. Last night, I saw Alexander Wang Rocco  in Acid Yellow was part of the sale (originally $895 on sale $539). But alas, I checked again this morning and it's no longer listed in the sale section. The bag is no longer available. Sad day. So, to compensate on missing out on the Rocco bag, here are some other small leather goods and bags that are just as awesome and would make a great accessory for this spring and summer.

If I were to win the lottery today, here are my top 21 leather goods that will make it on my checkout basket. I've grouped them into three different categories and listed them according to their sale price.

4. Proenza Schouler Zip Pouch Medium Leather $475 Sale $289 (also available in Gotham print)
5. Chloe Marcie Cosmetic Pouch $480 Sale $289
6. Proenza Schouler PS1 ipad case $685 Sale $399 (also available in red)

As I've mentioned in my previous post, I bought the A. Wang coin purse last year. Still love it to this day. I put all my coins and loyalty cards in there and other things that might not fit in my wallet. And how adorable is the Prisma Wristlet? You can never ever go wrong with leopard print.

Satchels/Crossbody Bags

2. Tila March Daisy Camera Bag $725 Sale $439 (also available in Lagoon)
3. Alexander Wang Brenda Chain Bag $750 Sale $449 (also available in Vine Green)
5. Proenza Schouler Journal Bag $1,575 Sale $949
6. Nina Ricci La Rue Sac MM $1,950 Sale $1,169
7. Isabel Marant Lesly Bag $1,925 Sale $1,159
9. The Row Twin Messenger Bag $1,950 Sale $1,169

The Sophie Hulme crossbody bag can add a pop of color this spring. I've always stalked the Alexander Wang Brenda chain bag. This is one of the first bag I laid my eyes on when I learned about the designer. If you're sad about the Rocco bag selling out, I'd definitely recommend this as well. The Fendi Mini Clutch's design kind of reminds me of the mini PS11 I've been wanting for awhile. This might be a good alternative if you're looking into the mins PS11. The Isabel Marant bag is definitely a spunky little one. It actually reminds me of a bag that I saw on Rachel Bilson (my major girl crush) that I couldn't figure out what it was. It has three different compartments that could easily hold your life in it.

Totes and Duffel Bags

3. 3.1 Phillip Lim Pashli Tote $895 Sale $539
5. Marni Small Studded Duffel $1,760 Sale $1,059

Let me know on the comments down below which of these are your favorites. Have you checked out the sale yet? Barneys definitely has some good offerings with this sale. If you're in the market for a new bag right now, this is probably a good time to get one.

It's Always Sunny... in Palm Springs

It's Alway Sunny... in Palm Springs

I'm so excited for this weekend! I know it's only Wednesday, but my mind is already wandering to Palm Springs. It'll be my first time there ever. Almost every Memorial Day Weekend has been spent somewhere in Vegas. I told myself to limit the Vegas trips and try to go to other places I've never been. So the boyfriend booked a hotel for the weekend, and we'll be on our merry way to this giant oasis in the middle of no where.

I still need to pack, but I can't wait to relax, do nothing, bask under the sun, and drink some adult juice while the rest of LA experience a low 70 degree weather... not even cold enough to go to the beach.

My luggage will probably have one outfit that looks something like this. What better place to wear a wide brim fedora other than Palm Springs. I will definitely have my Zara hat in tow. And Equipment blouses are quickly becoming an obsession. Their shirt is just so damn soft. As far as bag goes, I currently have my eyes on the PS11 or PS1. It changes depending on my mood. Lastly, I can't believe that I found something similar to the shoes I previously pinned here. I haven't been into cut-out shoes lately, up until I saw some hybrid looking ones, and these Topshop shoes are close enough for me. Too bad they're out of my size.

So, what's are your plans for the long weekend? Fortunately, my weekend some what starts tomorrow! But I'll be in class for Beauty Lab at the new Youtube Space in Venice. It's a whole day shenanigan with other beauty/fashion Youtubers, and I'm really excited!
