Trendspotting: Fall Fashion's 7 BEST by Mira Duma

I don’t know if it’s the growing pile of projects I have overflowing my desk, or the impending end of the year with deadlines looming right over my shoulder, but I’ve been falling into a MAJOR fashion rut this month.  It’s been a challenge switching gears from interior design to fashion and back again, but where there's an impasse, there's a solution right within reach!  Enter my sartorial street muse, the incomparable Miroslava Duma to help dictate what’s on my radar this fall.

 A global fashionista who ranks HIGH up on my trendspotting hitlist when everything she rocks is everything I want NEED in my life!

   The capes, the colors, the oh-so-incredibly FAB accessories!  Oman, each look is one to be lusted after…

Been scouring my local vintage and thrift shops for yummy colored leather in autumnal hues...love how this trend can be dressed up or down.

 It's no secret that I am OBSESSED with hats and head gear (seen HERE).  I love how Mira maintains her posh aesthetic with silky scarves that protect her from the elements while adding a punch of color to everyday ensembles.

Next to the ubiquitous black and white stripe, I'd say houndstooth is right up there with fashion's NO FAIL graphic patterns.  Menswear-inspired and tailored to perfection! 

 Can't survive a holiday season without a little plaid now, can we?
Not just for Christmas, I love the variation from full-on dresses to cute little skirt suits.

I've had the same pair of OTK leather boots for almost 7 years now!  Time to retire them and bust out the newbies!  Just picked up this Sam Edelman suede stunner and can't wait to rock them with all my party frocks!

I’m *this* close to putting myself on a shopping ban (sans new OTK's, lol) until I can muster up a road map to fall/winter dressing.  Seems Mira’s glamorous guide is the ONLY thing I’ll need all year!

Which trend tops your list of MUST-HAVES this season??

White Done Right

The start of a new season always beckons me to do a little redecorating, first paring down the space to a bare minimum then layering all my collected finds back on again.  It’s always easier to pile treasured heaps of ho-hum items atop one another, but can you imagine if every single tchotchke simply took your breath away

 Imagine living amongst ONLY your most favorited pieces?!  
Oh the life inspired is such an aspirational place to be my loves! 

 It’s no wonder your dream home feels so elusive…there’s too much nonsense blocking your vision!


How can you achieve such domestic enlightenment you ask?  
It's EASY!  
Get rid of all the B.S. by donating/ selling/ trading what you don’t LOVE and start anew with a blank white slate and just a little imagination.  

I’m seeing lotsa crystal and gilded surfaces in my space, how about you??

Scenes from Saturday Night in LA

Happy Monday sweets!! How was everyone’s weekend?  I spent the most festive Saturday first getting dolled up for a private tasting gallery event then gallivanted around downtown Los Angeles with my party peeps wasting the night away!  Its times like these that make me feel like a young girl of 21 all over again! Lol

Chance encounter with one of my fave bloggers Chriselle Lim, noshing on notables at LA’s newest hotspot Faith and Flower, and ending the evening with some absinthe shots and burlesque booty shaking at the Edison Downtown

Seeing as how I may be losing my Ktown apartment in the next few months, I’m trying my finest to make the most of LA life with its infinite amount of dining and entertainment on any given night.  From hot-off-the-press destinations to the newest bars and speakeasies, what’s on your current Los Angeles hit list?!?  Would love to get your recommendations dolls!

Have a fabulous start to a beautiful brand new week hunnies!
