GREY GARDENS

posted by on Jul 30 2014, under Fashion

Today we're summering in Europe.  In L.A...

Amidst the heavy traffic and yoga-gear-clad moms of Beverly Hills lay a few pockets of Hollywood that are more reminiscent of an inland escape in the Mediterranean than a fog-infused movie town.

A three minute bike ride from my home finds me regularly at the Melrose Place garden of Eden; a perfectly manicured landscape invites you into brick alley back streets home to Marni, Isabel Marant, Alexander McQueen, and the rest of the European Union. Their retail stores, that is.

It's as if a secret garden erupted inside of the world's largest walk-in closet.

BEVERLY HILLS HOLD'EM

posted by Elshane on Feb 24 2015, under Fashion

I don't think anyone shouts, "I'm going to Disneyland!!!!" with pure intentions of coming home with a new designer handbag and hat. But, hey, that's what makes my world a little peculiar I guess.

So, yeah...I did that. 

I went on the Indiana Jones ride and landed myself straight into the gift shop where leather safari hats are as abundant as Mickey ears. Then I headed to the children's section of Minnie paradise and scored quite the evening handbag. A true example of "from runway to reality"...but in this case, completely reversed. From mass general population, straight to the couture closet that my stacks of handbags cheerfully call home. 

Alaia and Minnie can finally meet! It all makes so much sense now...

Do I smell the next Disney movie sensation in the works?

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 ;)

GILDED

posted by Elshane on Dec 2 2015, under Fashion

A gold pencil skirt is something I oddly didn't have in my closet until recently. I ask myself why? I love pencil skirts, and gold is the most regal hue of the rainbow, of course.

I was pleasantly surprised to find a bevy of gilded pencil skirts over the internet to choose from. For holiday dressing, I don't think it gets chicer than this. From office to party, or in this downtown LA prance, from museum to museum, a gold pencil skirt is so.right.now.

{Oh, and it's only $26.}
