Orange County Surf Day

Roxy dress.

Billabong bikini.

Ray Ban sunglasses.

Yesterday I went surfing with a friend at Huntington Beach.  Southern California is experiencing a heat wave at the moment so it was nice to surf in the cool water.  Later in the day we headed down to Newport Beach.  The sunset there was just incredible.

Mara Hoffman Sample Sale Finds

Yesterday I went to the Mara Hoffman sample sale in Los Angeles.  Not only was this the designer's first sample sale in Los Angeles, Hoffman was present at her sample sale and made sure everything ran smoothly.  The sale was full of dresses, tops, shorts, and hundreds of swimsuits all at great prices.  Check out my finds below!





BCBG 25 Year Retrospective Exhibit




Today I got the chance to tour the BCBG 25 Year Retrospective exhibit.  The exhibit was set up in the BCBG corporate headquarters just outside of Los Angeles.  One of the prominent features was a timeline highlighting what BCBG has accomplished in the last twenty five years.  They also had a display featuring the design process for one of their Spring 2014 looks.  Another great part was a display of looks that had actually walked the runway in New York Fashion Week.  They also had a display of looks that had been worn by celebrities on the red carpet.  Also featured were displays for Hervé Leger and BCBGeneration.

Valentino Spring / Summer 2014

Valentino has always been one of my favorite brands.  Tribal has always been one of my favorite trends.  Seeing the two come together is pure perfection.  I like how Valentino kept the classic structured dresses and also added some bohemian shapes to the mix as well.  Which look is your favorite?

I love the leather detailing on this dress!  The darker colors make this dress perfect for fall.  I know I can't be the only one wanting fall to come a little bit sooner!

The Erdem Resort 2014 collection is phenomenal.  I love the monochromatic prints, sheer paneling, touches of floral, and structured silhouettes.  I especially love the sheer paneled collared dress in look four.  Which look is your favorite?
