Im trying something new this season. I find fall/winter to be a difficult season for me to dress. I live in LA where we have plenty of sunshine and not many chances to wear typical seasonal wear including warm coats. I will be, what I call, closet shopping. Going into the depths of my closet to find items I have not worn in a while and shopping for new items that I can add to my everyday looks.
I love a classic vintage look with lots of color. In the cooler seasons, my look completely changes. Here, I still have a classic inspired look. Sandals are ok to wear in the fall in LA. My top is a wool minidress paired with a vintage circle skirt. I brightened up this ensemble with a new giant purple necklace. I am loving this new necklace, as it's going to be a staple throughout the holidays. Now if I only had a colorful simple knit dress. Pants is a whole other story that does not work for me at the moment.
I have started a lookbook to get inspired and feedback on what others think. Click on the link above to check out what Iv'e come up with . Feel free to leave a comment or suggestions.
Diwali is a beautiful time of year. We light our lanterns to dispel the darkness of our ignorance. The light shows us our journey through life. We clean our homes, accounts, everything around us including our hearts. This is the festival of lights for the new year.
I remember going down to Artesia, CA for the celebration. A section of Pioneer Blvd is closed off with jewelry, clothing, and food vendors. What more can you ask for but good food, good shopping, and good music. Our favorite vegetarian spot to eat at is Udupi Palace. Oh do I love their simple masala dosa. This is a family friendly festival where everyone is in good spirits.
I have quite the selection of chandalier plugs. I will be debuting Glamour Embalmer Jewelry on Etsy and this weekend. Come to The Holiday Market this Sunday December 13 from 2:00-7:00.
