Top – Tobi / Skirt – H&M

Is this not the most “California” shot you’ve seen in a while from our blog posts? This is a funny photo to me actually because during this week, I believe we wore 4 different black and white styled outfits. We were having a moment, clearly. I actually haven’t touched this outfit again since this photo was taken. I bought this top as part of a two piece scalloped outfit (top and skirt) for a bachelorette party and I wanted so badly to be able to have another use for it. It’s very clearly not with this skirt though. There are a lot of cute homes near my office so sometimes when we feel like taking a walk, we’ll use of them as a backdrop. I like this because it wasn’t a particularly windy day at all, but my little baby hairs get to be in the spotlight for a minute!

All Black + Shadow Puppets

Screen Shot 2016-06-26 at 9.34.21 AM

Blouse – Madewell / Pants – H&M / Cardigan – Aritzia / Hat – Nordstrom

Remember how we said in our last post that we were getting a little experimental with our outfits back in the winter? This is definitely one of them. I considered not even sharing these horrid outfits, but then I thought you know what – we all make fashion mistakes sometimes and it’s okay. Much of my closet these days is full of blacks, whites, and neutrals and on this day I was wanting to have an all black moment. Instead, I came off looking like a child star on Star Search with this get up. Also, why am I wearing all black when it’s a perfectly sunny day? It’s all just pretty bad. These pants also look similar to the ones I wear by Uniqlo, but these are actually a very old pair from H&M that aren’t as fitted. After this wear, we decided we had to get rid of these too :( Also, can you see the shadow puppets? My friends think they are pretty funny.

Sometimes You Just Want To Be A Girly Girl

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 10.33.47 AM

Chambray Shirt – Madewell / Tulle Dress – H&M / Booties – Munro @Nordstrom

The next few outfits after this one are what I call my experimental period. You’ll start to notice soon that I was really testing the waters and pushing the boundaries on some of the outfit combinations I was putting together. Not all of them always worked, but at least we now have the photographic evidence on why they didn’t and we won’t try them again :)

On this particular day, I just really wanted to incorporate this tulle into my outfit. Every day, I saw it hung up on my closet and thought well, if I’m not going to wear it, I should get rid of it. I was determined to find a place for it though so I put on the dress (which I only wore once for Halloween for a princess costume) and put my chambray shirt over it tying it in the front. This was my most girliest outfit yet. It’s not that it was a terrible ensemble – it wasn’t – but it also didn’t feel like me. Because the top half of the dress is done up with sequins, I was itchy and uncomfortable all day. The tulle is also VERY sheer, but luckily for us – we avoided what could have been a massive wardrobe malfunction. All in all… lesson learned and now that we’ve made an outfit work with the dress, I think we can safely say that it is time to retire it.

2016 Met Gala Red Carpet

Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton

This is always one of our favorite events of the year and all today, I wanted to just continue refreshing Fashionista so that I could see the live coverage of all of the outfits. Instead, we worked. And every 45 minutes, we ended up refreshing, but then the days get ahead of us so now we’re playing catch up now. Here’s what we did see – we didn’t like Taylor’s outfit. Not one bit. We hated Selena’s boots. We weren’t surprised by Nicki Minaj and we loved Chloe Moretz and Bee Shaffer, but what else is new?! Now, let’s get to the coverage – it’s pretty much the post we’ve been waiting for all year long. This year’s theme was Manus x Machina. This also kind of hits home for us because well… you know, tech!

Someone’s trying a little too hard, right?

When We Try to be Professional

Screen Shot 2016-04-09 at 11.15.02 PM

Top – Brandy Melville / Skirt – H&M / Booties – Munro – Nordstrom

I work at a start-up so fancy business professional attire isn’t required for me, however, that doesn’t mean that I can just slum it. I can’t even bring myself to wear a t-shirt and jeans most days – y’all know that’s just not me anyways. I also work with a lot of external people in my company as well so I try to maintain appearances. On this particular day, I felt like dressing up a little bit more. This is probably an outfit that I would have worn when working in finance and while I’ve gotten rid of most of those pieces, there are still a few that I have kept behind (just in case!) You never know when you’ll need them. This is one of my favorite outfits to wear to work because it’s length-appropriate, professional, and still makes me feel comfortable throughout a work day.

Small

Screen Shot 2016-04-02 at 11.55.26 PM

Knit top – Brandy Melville / Skirt – H&M / Tights – Forever21 / Beanie – Aritzia

Looks familiar, doesn’t it? This is probably one of my favorite locations to shoot at because the parking lot always seems to be deserted. In this photo, Sep and I wanted to play around with size so I asked her to stand farther away from me to capture how small I look against the building. We also tried shooting this at “golden hour” for once which added to the shadows. I haven’t worn this outfit again because I remember feeling a little frumpy when wearing it, but I did like how edgy it was with the tights and accessorizing it with the beanie. I’m sure it will make another appearance this coming fall!

How We Style Our Statement Necklace

Screen Shot 2016-03-05 at 11.37.38 AM

Happy Saturday everyone! We’re taking a break in our backlog of outfit posts this week to bring you one that we shot earlier this week! I finally had a chance to do my first collaboration of the year. Younic had reached out to me on my Instagram and offered to send me a necklace of my choosing so that I could style it. A couple months back, we actually shot an outfit post using Sepideh’s J. Crew statement necklace that I had borrowed for the moment, but I had never had my own. Once it arrived, I started thinking about all the ways I wanted to wear it – did I want to  dress it up or down, wear it with a button up – a pullover sweater – or a t-shirt? There were a lot of possibilities, but ultimately, I wanted to dress it up in a casual way in which I could still wear the outfit to work on a day-to-day basis. Thank you so much Younic for the opportunity!

2016 Oscars After Party

Brie Larson in Monse

This is my favorite because The Oscars red carpet tends to be very grand and conservative, but the after party is when things start to get a little bit sexier and you know all the stars that weren’t invited to the actual award show get to come out so that’s nice for them.

We HAD to kick this post off with Brie. Honestly, how could we not? Also, oh my goodness – is she wearing pink velvet? She not only was the best dressed of the night, but clearly the most comfortable the rest of the night. We just want to be friends with her.

Taylor Swift Eve

Screen Shot 2015-10-24 at 9.45.41 PM

Crop top – Aritzia / Skirt – H&M / Birkenstocks

We’re so behind on our posts that this outfit dates all the way back to August! Nearly a year before Taylor Swift’s actual “1989” show in Santa Clara, my coworkers bought about 20 tickets so they could all go together. They kept asking me if I had wanted to go, but I kept turning down the opportunity because I didn’t think I was a big enough fan to be deserving enough to go. Also, I hadn’t listened to her “1989” album at all except for the songs that had been released on mainstream radio (big mistake on my part.) As we got closer and closer to the actual concert date, I started to experience FOMO. Luckily, a couple tickets opened up and I raised my hand right away! I was so excited that I decided to wear a crop top with my outfit the next day in true Taylor fashion. I hope I made her proud!

We Love a Good Set of Stairs

Blue tank top – H&M / White skort – Aritzia / Wedges – DV by Dolce Vita

We’re starting to run out of interesting backdrops for my outfits! Leah and I actually discovered this the other day (not too far away!) and thought it worked well with the outfit scheme. We took this photo last Monday and back then I wanted to do a whole week featuring “pops of color!” but we only lasted 3 days, unfortunately. Instagramming is a hard lifestyle, apparently.

Donut Face

Blue tank top – Aritzia / Skirt – H&M / Birkenstocks / Bracelet – Madewell

Since it was National Donut Day last Friday, I was pretty excited about incorporating props into my outfit post. The only thing is… I kind of look like that character from Pan’s Labyrinth, which wasn’t what I was originally going for. It’s still cute though, right? This is the first time that I’ve ever worn this outfit altogether and I really like the baby blue with the black and white skirt. As of late, I’ve been wearing a lot of just black and white so it’s nice to mix things up a bit. I’m also realizing through these outfit posts that I am totally utilizing my Birkenstocks (a worry that I had when I wasn’t finding that they were matching with anything) which is great because even if they don’t match with things, I realize I don’t care.

Billboard Music Awards 2015

Zendaya Coleman in Fausto Puglisi

Wow, Balmain though was really havinga night with the celebrities especially since Kendall announced that they were going to be the next H&M collaboration! Zendaya looked amazing on the red carpet last night, but one of my biggest disappointments? That she was not interviewed by Giuliana for the E! Red Carpet show. The drama was heard ’round the world, but this was a huge missed opportunity for both parties to squash all of that and they didn’t. Leaving her out of the segment is now going to make people speculate a little bit I’m sure.

I Got Hops

Chambray shirt – Madewell / Skirt – H&M / Scarf – Aritzia / Booties – Munro via Nordstrom

It turned out to be pretty gray today so we bundled up! This is actually kind of a drastic change from the all white outfit I wore just a couple of days ago when it was completely sunny. We decided to have a little bit more fun with this post though so Leah captured a photograph of me getting some air! Surprisingly, we only needed just 4 takes to get this! Having grown up in Seattle, I never really realized how much of a damper (pun intended) the weather can have on our overall health and wellbeing. Even though it rained just a little bit today, I found myself feeling more tired and at one point even a little sick. Turns out a few of my co-workers shared the same sentiments as well. Maybe it’s all in my head or maybe it’s just what the weather does to us all. Whatever the case, I’m really glad I got to feel like I was skipping ahead to fall today!

2015 Met Gala

Anna Wintour in Chanel – she hosted the whole thang so she had to be first. 

It killed me that I couldn’t post every look and have this ready to go for you all this morning! I was so excited to see some of the looks from the Met Gala yesterday evening and then a part of me knew that I would hate some looks as well. With the theme being, “China: Through the Looking Glass,” I was concerned that there would be jabs poked at stereotypes and Asian trends that would make me cringe. Of course there were, but like all things, we have to move on and not dwell on them. In the interest of saving time (and space!) I am choosing not to include looks that I felt were in poor taste.
