Meow.

Last week, we moved into our new office, insert happy emojis here. It almost feels like a fresh new start and vibe which I can’t help but feel re-energized from because I have some exciting things planned for the blog + brand.

One of my easy breezy looks from last week consisted of classic pieces to get me through a day of meetings, moving things/furniture around the office and walking the new neighborhood in hopes of getting acquainted with new coffee shops, restaurants and shops. These flats came in handy!

A nice silky button up blouse always does the trick to get me through a long day. I splurged a bit on these cat flats that have been all over the internet because well, who doesn’t need them in their wardrobe?

Levi’s and Chanel always go hand in hand. I know, it totally looks like summer in LA by the way I’m dressed but I’m trying to take advantage of the heat because the temperature is slowly cooling down. Fall makes me happy, but not really, because I love the warmer weather!

If I have a weakness for anything, it would be handbags. I’ve mentioned this to you guys a long time ago, but I literally love handbags. It’s the one thing I definitely save up for and splurge on. I feel like it does make all the difference to have and carry a nice designer bag.

I’ve collected a few of my favorite classic ones from different designers but always dreamt of having a Chanel 2.55. This vintage beauty is definitely a classic bag that all women need!

Save up and splurge! It’s definitely your investment piece. You won’t regret it. I promise.

Or… visit your nearest thrift stores and/or flea markets. They sell vintage designer pieces for more than half the price. I know I’ve bought a couple of vintage Gucci bags at my go-to flea market on Sundays. Make it an adventure to visit flea markets in hunt of a vintage designer bag! Don’t stop until you find one…. Good luck! xo

Classic 2.55

CLASSICCOVER

I’ve always said less is more and when all fails, you can’t ever, ever go wrong with a crisp white button up shirt. It’s classic!

I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect white button up, but was always out of luck. Recently, I came across this inexpensive one which had everything I was looking for: boxy fit, oversized, no pocket, and long length. Can we say major score?

A white button up shirt is on my top 10 staple items you need in your wardrobe! (I gotta give you guys my list… will work on that post soon!)

I wanted a classic look so pairing it with ripped skinny jeans, a touch of leopard and an iconic 2.55, completed the look.classic11.jpg_effectedclassic12.jpg_effected classic9.jpg_effected classic6.jpg_effected classic1.jpg_effectedclassic5.jpg_effected classic8.jpg_effectedclassic2.jpg_effected
