After being home for the holidays in Maryland, I came back to LA and took a stroll down Rodeo drive. The textured wall of the Saint Laurent store played the perfect back drop for this all black ensemble. Typically, I would pair this fringe skirt with a tighter top, but I enjoyed the easiness of this silk tie blouse. It's always good to play with different silhouettes and switch it up. However, you should always keep in mind what works for your body type. I'm usually known for wearing cropped shirts and high waisted bottoms and I prefer that silhouette because it makes my body look longer and I'm a short girl (5'2".) Wearing a short skirt with a nice high heel will also do the trick.

Happy New Year! I wanted to start my first 2015 post with my NYE metallic monochromatic look. It's customary to wear a dress for this special evening, but I decided to go an unexpected route. I'm in love with these silk gold trousers from NG! They happened be the perfect pairing with a knit crop top I found at Urban (which is unfortunately sold out.) To top the look off, I wore iridescent leopard open toe booties from Ivanka Trump that were an excellent match. The coat was a must because it was freezing!
I'm looking forward to see what will be the big trends for 2015! My fashion goal for this year is to invest more in timeless pieces that will last me for years to come. I hate to see clothing in my closet that I've never worn or only worn once. I ask myself the following questions whenever I'm debating a purchase: Will I get a lot of wear out of it and is it worth the price? I can be pretty impulsive when it comes to shopping, but this year I plan to continue to scale back on my spending by only buying pieces that will last through years and seasons.
