All That Glitters.

Super quick post from one of my nyfw looks! A little swamped with work, shipping tshirts and running errands so bear with me as I sort out through my photos!

I wore this to the Nicole Miller show; it was a totally Girls Just Wanna Have fun runway show! I wore a NM dress and loved the sequins but knew that I wanted to toughen up the dress so I paired it with my camo jacket and boots!

Ps- There’s new Célfie tees on my shop: crop tops and black tees! The sweatshirt I wore on friday, HERE, already sold out!

Taking you guys a few weeks back to nyfw! I know, seems like so long ago now that I feel irrelevant posting photos from fashion week but I have so many photos + looks to post still (including photos + experience from my London trip!) so I hope you guys don’t mind!

This look was on a hot Sunday afternoon- the weather in NYC was blazing hot. Kind of annoyingly hot to be honest. I’m used to hot sunny weather because I’m from Cali, but the hot weather in NYC was not fun! It was humid and muggy. I tried to stay in door with high AC everywhere I could…

Anyway, I attended the RewardStyle rooftop party and since it was blazing hot, I thought I’d wear something light and fresh. I pulled out this amazing ALC dress that fit the occasion and weather quite perfectly.

ps- thank you guys for all the lovely comments/emails… I’m so happy you guys loved yesterdays post! I will try and keep the Day in Life post going.. either once a week or once a month! xo

I’m a sucker for pockets whether it’s jeans, shorts, skirts, blazers, I prefer having pockets in the things I purchase. This dress was already a stunner, but the big front pockets is what sold me!

Day in the Life // L.A.

lifeofjules40

I’m always intrigued by how other peoples’ ‘day in the life’ looks like, especially those that have their own business because clearly, they can do whatever, whenever! For me, I’ve been so fortunate to do what I do and be my own boss. Everyday for me is quite different, sometimes I’ll be stuck at my office all day working on emails, deadlines, designing new tees/projects, other days I’m running around all over town doing errands, visiting showrooms, in meetings, scouting locations, and some days I can have a more laid-back day where I can go out and have an “inspiration day” as I like to call them where I go out around L.A, visit some of my favorite shops/book stores, hangout at my favorite café to jot down ideas, go shopping, buy flowers, etc. I have these “inspiration day” kind of days at least once a week and it helps me get out of any creative rut, it gets me inspired with things I see/read/buy, and it clears my mind so that I’m able to comeback to my office and feel “new” again! It’s fun!

Yesterday was my “inspiration day” because we’ve been swamped with so much work lately- especially since we were away for two weeks. I needed to go out and do a couple of my favorite things so I can feel refreshed as I have great things/projects coming up that I need to be creatively inspired for. Yesterday I did just that and I left inspired.

Take a look at a quick day in the life of where I go in L.A to feel refreshed while I trotted around wearing a few of my new goodies, Loeffler Randall bag, boyfriend jeans and Maje tee I got in London! (warning: a lot of photos!)

I love starting off my “inspiration day” at one of my favorite cafés around my neighborhood in Silver Lake- Casbah Café. They always have the cutest fruit + pastry displays!

Sippin’ on my favorite macchiato with whip cream and enjoying the cute neighborhood view.

Off to pick up some flowers for the office on the Westside. These jeans are ultra comfy and perfect for a day like this!

Finally at the flower shop at one of my favorites on Melrose- Moe’s Flowers.

I always have to pick up a few plants + succulents- they last longer and look so cute on the floor lined up against the brick wall in the office.

Came out with fresh, beautiful flowers and a few plants (not pictured). The hydrangea’s were for my desk!

Back at the office after running a few errands in between and visiting my favorite nail salon- Kure Spa in Silver Lake-  for a much needed mani. (On wall: amazing vintage jacket x Loeffler Randall bag)

In my office, jotting down new ideas and flippin’ through magazines for inspiration. Working on the next new designs for the tshirts! Stay tuned!
