- ONE WOMAN ON A MISSION TO DISCOVER & EXPERIENCE ALL THINGS LOS ANGELES
Filed In: Trending : LA Fashion
Holy. Guacamole. Outside of your regularly scheduled Insta-programming… I am so sorry I had to let the blog hit the back burner this week! Terrible! Rude! Unacceptable-ish! I have been in Vegas since Monday attending and *SPEAKING* at this season’s WWDMagic show at the LV Convention Center!!! I knew it’d be time consuming and a bit stressful, but I wasn’t prepared for just how much it would actually take out of me – in the best way possible of course. Going to a convention/tradeshow in Vegas is like entering a time-warp. You never know what time it is… what day it is… what your name is… and it kinda messes with your body clock. That being said though, I still had the time of my life and can’t wait to share more from the trip – especially some of my on-film panel discussions with WWD.
Well, guess what I’m NOT wearing today? In case you haven’t looked outside yet (or you don’t actually live in Southern California), we are in the midst of a storm. Like a real, big, scary storm – this may be just another walk in the park for other states and cities but for LA… this is bad. But you know it’s really bad when your mom calls you in the middle of the day JUST to warn you that you’re about to experience the worst storm LA has seen in 7 years.
Yaaayyy… can’t wait…
So for nostalgia sake, lets talk about warmer days shall we? Let’s talk about all the things we WILL wear once the rain dissipates – like these amazing red velvet trousers for example.
You know those new things you buy that you pretty much decide to wear ’round-the-clock until it feels almost unacceptable to wear it one more day in a row? This sweatshirt is that for me right now. I. Love. This. Thing. I wear it to meetings, I wear it on weekends, I wear it around my house, I wear it post gym – all the time lately! I have always been a fan of the cropped sweatshirt look, and with the popularity of high rise denim/trousers being so prevalent I feel like crop sweatshirts are just a given necessity. (If it can’t be a crop top it might as well be a crop sweatshirt,right? Especially for us LA girls.)
First it was boyfriend jeans, then it was boyfriend shirts, now it’s boyfriend jackets! The most current trends seem to be just creeping towards comfier and comfier and I ain’t complainin’. I will forever and always be a leather jacket kind of girl, there will be at least 5-10 in my closet at any given time, but right now I am really gravitating towards these big oversized jackets. The coat I’ve got on here is actually a mens jacket; it was a collaboration between Schott NYC and Sailor Jerry and I actually got it BECAUSE it was a mens jacket!
Can you guys believe the actual WEATHER we’re having right now? My wifi actually went out today! Poor sensitive Los Angeles wires and connections; so sweet and fragile. I feel like every time I put on a real coat in LA, I always get questionable looks or the awkward “you look really warm…” comments, but the past few weeks I’ve clearly the most comfortable and intelligent person out there in the 40 – 50 degree cold with my heavy duty coat on! “Who’s the moron now!”
I’ve had this coat in particular in my closet for an entire year now and haven’t been able to wear it (without feeling like said moron) in over a year. I am so happy Los Angeles is finally having a moment of chill so I can bust out all of my favorite “East Coast coats”. I am all about furry/fuzzy coats right now, or “fashion blankets” as I prefer to call them, because they really are the most wonderful way to dress up an outfit all the while remain totally comfy cozy.
