Fall in LA

My love hate relationship with LA continues.  I love that I am able to practically wear anything anytime of year.  The fashion rule of not wearing white is thrown out the window. Why you ask, well because its hot! White is associated with cool weather. Being a Cali girl the weather is very mysterious.  Some days are very hot and some are a bit cooler.  With that reason we can get away with being a bit rebellious and wear shorts with our Doc. Martens during fall or wearing a summer dress with closed toed heels. The Down fall of my dear Cali weather is that I can not really wear gorgeous coats while sipping on a hot pumpkin latte to keep warm or enjoy a white Christmas, but I am content it.  This gives me an excuse to travel outside of the LA area this fall/winter.

La Cuesta Encantada

{Dress: Tj Maxx, Wedges: BCBG, Hat: Forever 21} This is the trip that literally took my breath away.  I’ll start by saying this: my photographs give no justice to the beauty of this location. The view of this estate was breath taking in one corner I was able to see the Pacific Ocean on the next I was able to see the mountains.  The castle was a place where all the top celebrities would come by invitation and stay a couple of days in this beautiful location, people like Charlie Chaplin and Walt Disney were some of the guest that were privileged to be invited  to the castle.  As I was walking in the castle I was thinking of how amazing it would have been to be one of Hearst’s esteemed guests.   I dressed the part with my little white dress, you know and try to make it a little bit more special.  The dress reminded me in a way to the Roman era, one of the many themes the Castle held. My love and …

The Owl by My Side

{TJmaxx Sporty Trousers, Pink Shirt: G Stage, Custom purse for me :), Target: heels, Urban Outfitters necklace} What can be better than a custom bag made for you.  This bag has finally made its debut and it was an amazing journey working with the designer and being able to my thoughts into creating this masterpiece.  He was so detailed with the patterns and colors and I sincerely love everything about this purse.  The basket weaving, the color of the leather, and of course my initials. Like the title says the owl will forever be by my side and this custom purse will forever be by my side     

When Life Gives You Lemons

{Dress Buffalo Exchange, Heels JCpenny, Hat and accessories Forever 21} Moving forward from the bad luck I had last week is something that I am slowly learning to get over.  From last week’s dreadful accounting test to getting sick, and the cherry on top: getting my car towed away in the mix of other things.  I learned to look at situations from a different perspective.  Things happen for a reason and even though we try to live life perfectly things will happen that are out of our control.  If we didn’t encounter problems then life would not be interesting.  In this city that I love I have to learn to grow tough, specially being a Mexican woman.  Bring on the lemons and salt because I need to make Margaritas. This dress was a perfect representation of how i was thinking of my situations.  When life gets tough bring on your best outfit forward because even though life is not going your way.  A great outfit will boost confidence and bring on a smile. Ladies and gents I …

Journey of a Dress

{Tj Maxx  crop Top, Windsor Leather Jacket, Peter Pilotto for Target skirt, Olsenboye Strappy heels, Ray ban glasses, Vintage purse, Mar Jacobs watch} The Journey of a designer specially Diane Von Fursteberg Story is one to really look out for.  She was able to work with the times and give woman freedom with the rap dress.  Specially during the 70’s when woman were fighting for equal rights.  Her wrap dress itself gave women the freedom to wear what they desired and it was accessible, while still being fashion forward.  Having the opportunity to witness all these dresses was something eye opening. I wanted to wear an outfit that went with the patterns Miss Furstenberg has created over the years and my skirt was a perfect representation of those dress. I hope you all enjoy your weekend, xoxo Charms of Penny
