PENCILING IN SPRING

posted by Elshane on Apr 23 2015, under Fashion

A pencil skirt is my secret to no-fail outfit success. It's the oxymoron of street fashion.

Covered yet Revealing

Comfortable yet Chic

Professional yet Sexy

A pencil skirt can go beyond the ...with heels and a blouse... lewk, as shown in my afternoon coffee vibe from a few weekends ago. Here, my flatforms and a loose tee turn this pencil skirt into a full blown jeans and basic tee rival. 

So for here on forward, I'm declaring that I'll be Penciling in Spring... all spring long ;)

COACHELLA 2015

posted by Elshane on Apr 22 2015, under Fashion

This year I grabbed Coachella by the... Palm Trees! And I swung and swung my way into the most fun year yet.

Highlights? Keisza's entire set. The introduction to Jungle. Single handedly launching the Urban Decay #UDSummerNights spring makeup collection to 80k Coachell-ans (check out the full story here). Oh, and the Mac n' Cheese Grilled Cheese. Definitely the Grilled Cheese.

I hope you enjoy a glimpse into my weekend filled with music, fashion, food, and a hella-lotta walking skipping!

SUDDENLY SPRING

posted by Elshane on Apr 13 2015, under Fashion

I'm counting the moments until Coachella 2015 next weekend. In the meantime, I played dress up all weekend long in highest anticipation-- mixing boho flirty florals with some rough around the edges accessories and shoes. The result? Spring's freshest look yet.

This spring, I dare you to go back to the basics. A little dress, a little boot, a little belt, and some serious jewelry swag.

When you strip down all of the layers involved in making a great look, sometimes you realize that all it really takes is a girly mini dress to make you feel all sorts of ready for spring.

DENIM OFF DUTY

posted by Elshane on Apr 8 2015, under Fashion

An ironic setting this came to be... standing atop the train station in Chinatown, Los Angeles in (quite comfortable) sky high heels, people watching.

I used to be that very girl in NYC, heels in tow, waiting for the next subway to take me from work to cocktails, from cocktails to shopping. But in LA? This was new to me.

Good thing I had on a trusty denim skirt-- an item that no spring closet should be without. Best paired with a white tee and your favorite kicks, it's a full-proof fashion-meets-comfort zone

Best part of a denim skirt? It's a style that's here to stay.

GIVING BACK IS THE NEW BLACK

posted by Elshane on Apr 6 2015, under Beauty

For about a year now, I haven't gone a day without eyeshadow primer. Typically, it's Urban Decay's Original Primer Potion because, well, it's proven to be the best. But now that they've created the Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Enigma, a limited-edition neutral matte shade where 100% of your purchase price funds The Ultraviolet Edge, their global initiative to empower women, I haven't since turned my back to beauty for a cause.

 
I was recently at a fashion event in a circle of women discussing eyeshadow primers. I was impressed to hear that each of the five women applied it daily. And true it is-- for day or night-- an easy must. It's the perfect base coat for a long day of shadow, or just worn alone to give your lids a little glimmer of glamour. 
 
Do you prime

CROCHET ME TO SPRING

posted by Elshane on Mar 30 2015, under Fashion

This is what I'd call a hit and run shoot. Hit the closet, score hard on a breezy dress, and run out of the house to be fashionably late to the party. Which is exactly what happened. I was literally running out of my house to go to a daytime beach bar to sip rosé with friends and watch the sunset, when I decided this dress deserved some solid blog lovin'.

The night ended with a few pies of pizza and a really stellar mint chip ice cream cone. I think part of what made the day so memorable was this perfect daytime LBD. It was as effortless as Kim Kardashian's hair David Beckham's free kick.

It's quite possibly my new favorite <3.
