downtown la

I got a last minute call from my BFF Natalie tonight, inviting me to a showroom opening in Downtown LA. I threw on some clothes, red lips and was out the door. The opening was cool, but the real fun began when Nat and I decided to have an impromptu photo shoot on the deserted streets of Downtown LA. We went with the artistic direction of not using the flash to try to capture the night. Problem with that is…if you don’t have a super steady hand and a super steady subject, you end up with super blurry photos. Aha! So pardon our blurs but I still LOVE these pics! Hope you do too. In my look: Vintage tuxedo blazer & necklace, BDG button down jean shirt & skinny jeans and Forever 21 bag. Natalie’s look: Head to toe Vintage.

  • My favorite blog posts are the ones w pics of you.
    This is you “throwing on clothes”? You outdo people who spent 5 hours.
    Next time, make sure to get a shot of the shoes, too. I always want to see the shoes.

    • really?! thanks laura! i needed to hear that. sometimes i shy away from post w pics of me. i like to mix it up though. and thank you for the sweet compliment re: my outfit. yeah i only had about 10 minutes to get ready. but like i was talking about in my last post…i create the best outfits when i dont have the time to over think what im going to wear! as for the shoes…i was wearing black patent leather booties from steve madden the same ones featured in my “jackass 3d” blog post. thanks for your comment! xoxo
