With festival season near, I've been unusually very much in the spirit of its signature fashion. Being the modern minimalist that I am, I've never really embraced folkloric, bohemian style. That is until time eventually, and inevitably changed my mind... as it tends to do with my tastes in style and fashion.
And very much in the spirit of my own style, I've been dipping my toes in new looks and pieces - tying them in with my Tiny ol' faithfuls.
tee: The Tiny Closet Collection / short: Kukuly / oxfords: CMG / nail color: "Eiffel in Love" L'Oreal
These "festival" shorts as I call them, are absolutely fantastic. And if you follow my Instagrammies, you may have seen these before. I actually showed them off a couple weeks ago while in the store LOL
High waist, contoured in the back, colorful with tradition and handmade. I'm in love.
The Peruvian woman I bought them from owns a store in the Garment District called Kukuly - a store I visit at least once a week to check in on all the treasures she gets, which is a lot of Peruvian styles and accessories. Le sigh.
With this Summer-like weather we've been suddenly having in L.A., I've been wearing these shorts a lot lately. I pair them with a cinched chambray or with my new v-neck tees I've been making for myself. My James Perse collection is rapidly wilting under years of wear so I decided to design and make my own. A perfect fitting tee that also flatters is incredibly hard to find. James Perse has been my one-and-only tee soulmate. And as much as I've been resolved in the past to spend a few hundred on a good collection of his tees, this year I finally made up my mind to design my own. At a mere fraction of the price. A fraction of a fraction!

This chinchilla grey nail color is so classy and posh. "Eiffel For You" by L'Oreal Paris. I'd been eyeing it in the drugstore for weeks. As grey/lavender is my signature nail color, if you dig this shade, you may like this previous post where I'm wearing "Yummy Mummy" by Butter. So luxe and understated.
I'm sorry I've been away recently. I really don't like not posting but I've been so inspired lately with the 2014 S/S designs and sewing that my passions have been focused there. I've also been Youtube surfing. A lot. Get ready to see more hairstyles, makeup styles and... I'm excited to show you my S/S designs too!
See you back here on Monday :)
