Coachella Style

Coachella Style Anna Golka

With Coachella just around the corner, Southern Californians have but this one thing on their minds. Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds are coming up all things Coachella. And although it is primarily a musical festival, it would be a lie to say that there is not large fashion scene surrounding the event. Crazy prints, crop tops, sheer everything, fringe, and boots; anything goes at Coachella (well, almost). So if you’re like me (secretly more excited to create outfits and do fashion research at the festival than you are for the music) then here are some great outfit options:
Nasty Gal Acid Romper, Topshop Floral Stripe Dress, Topshop Giraffe Print Shorts,  ASOS Midi Dress, Forever 21 Denim Vest, Diesel Sheet Top, Free People Crochet Sneaker 

All I Want For Christmas Is...


My recent fashion-related goal in life has been to purchase items only because “I can’t imagine my life without this!” – as opposed to the often-used “I mean, it’s cute and it’s on sale, so I should totally get this… right?!”  With the latter approach, I’d often find my closet bogged down with mediocre items that I wore once or twice, but never with any true connection.
When thinking about the ultimate gift I’d love to receive this holiday season (most likely as a gift to me, FROM me), I tried to channel those items that I’ve been pining for.  Sometimes an amazing gift is something you don’t need, something purely superfluous and fun – however, the feeling of receiving something that will truly be treasured and worn with zeal can never be discounted.
These valued items are generally things that I’ve been searching and searching for, but to no avail.  Currently for me, this means two items: high-waisted black skinny jeans and red/orange/coral lipstick.  After some major on-line searching, I’ve located my ultimates!
So, without further adieu, here they are:
Dear Santa,
All I want for Christmas is these Proenza Schouler high-waisted black skinny stretch jeans made in collaboration with J Brand AND Nars Lipstick in Heat Wave!
Not much to ask, I’d say ;)
What’s your ultimate holiday gift?!

Black Friday Score: Splendid Maxi


Look at this gorgeous, versitile maxi skirt from Splendid! I got it from Bergdorf's Black Friday sale this morning. Can't wait for it to arrive!

Black Friday Score: Alexander McQueen


Did you score anything amazing this black Friday? I've had my eye on this amazing skull and leopard print scarf from Alexander McQueen for a long time, and I managed to snag it at 40% off from Net-a-Porter before it sold out. Score! 

Happy 11-11-11!


Today is 11/11/11, and while you might know it as a fun coincidence, or 'Nerd New Year', one group is celebrating for an entirely different reason. The Corduroy Appreciation Club has declared this the "Most Important Day in History". Why? Because the date looks like the wales on corduroy. I got these gorgeous deep wine colored corduroy pants from Blank Denim on ShopBop. I get compliments on them every time I wear them out. What about you? How do you rock your cords?
