Look of the day…August 15th.
This look is all about the naughty but nice peek-a-boo of the neon through navy blue lace and leopard booties. The element of transparency is always something a girl can rely on in order to create a sexy look.
Playing basics with the RGB (Red, Green and Blue) color scheme, I am actually wearing a Barney’s Co-Op knit men’s tie but here tied in a bow.
I say, if it looks good, who cares which section of the store is selling it, as long as you like it… make it work!
Look of the day…August 14th….
Purple is one of those childhood colors that are so rich and exciting it’s easy to get obsessed with, especially with the neon craze that’s going around. Neon yellows are my favorite to match it to since the green makes me really think of the Incredible Hulk.
Here I’m wearing a purple strapless color blocked little dress and I’m toning down the palette with a black cardi. The neon heels pick up the neon detail of the dress as well as jewerly and this is an easy, fun look for the summer.
I had the HONOR to be photographed here by my partner in crime and AWESOME artist Miss Susanne Melanie Berry <3
Remember..everything looks better with a natural tan!
Leather and Lace
Celebrating my eternal obsession for color schemes here is one of my top 5 favorites, the Chanel color scheme. The soft yet-not-exactly-baby pink with black lace and leather details creates a mix of innocence and darkness that I love. The baby blue nails are my little pop of color.
Here I’m wearing the Alexander McQueen Pumas as well as sunnies from Marc by Marc Jacobs resort 2011 collection for men, I just couldn’t resist the pink ombre on these shades, as well as his “watch” belt (one of my all time favorite acessories). The dress is a mix of mesh, tulle and satin and it’s perfect for the long days of California summer…
Inspiration for today’s mischievous look…
Saturday out and about in the streets of L.A. with M.G. Baker Co.
Here @ Mister Freedom
Look of the day… August 11th.
Red, White and Blue
Everybody has a friend, that person that sort of sneaked into our lives and became the lifeline, the missing link you were looking for in order to be happy, mine is M.G. Baker Co. (mgbakerco.com). We were designers together at Hurley and really learned from each other and collaborated in some pretty amazing projects.
Now M.G. Baker is out on his own with a killer line of self tie Bow Ties that are all the rage in Hollywood among celebritiies and trend setters but that’s not all, soon he will have more products for boys to look cuter than ever, so girls…if there’s a special boy in your life…hint hint.
This is another one of my fashion obsessions, the Nautical look…I guess this girl loves more than just a man in an uniform! Here I’m wearing a simple navy blue dress which I pop with the red elastic and patent leather belt that matches the shoes and sunnies. Offset by the big white bag I create my Uncle Sam palette perfect for the Mister Freedom wall.
If you have never been there it is a killer place to visit and revisit designs and initiatives from long long ago. I’m a sucker for fifties fashion, style of garment construction as well as design and lifestyle so Mister Freedom is an incredible place to reminisce and get inspired.

Look of the day, Friday 10th…
Putting on the Ritz
Tonight my long time friend and former Viper Room co-worker Mr. Mark Gracious is taking me to see Mr. Jack White at the Shrine in Downtown LA. This place is over 100 years old and has been through some major renovations, it looks incredible!! Also, it’s a place where all the biggest acts come to perform.
I’m taking advantage of Jack White’s flamboyance and wearing my evil pirate vintage hat. I’m a hat fanatic and this was definitely a huge find, conveniently enough I found it in my mom’s closet. Because of my hat obsession I guess, my mom started paying attention to vintage hat shops when she travels and she found this baby in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is black velvet and dates back to 1953.
In terms of clothes I’m wearing two brazilian designers here, mother and son as a matter of fact. The dress is knit teal with studs by Carlota Joaquina and the vest/coat is by Gloria Coelho. The heels are Dior mesh platforms.
Stay naughty Downtown LA!
Official Bow Tie Day
Today is my BFF’s birthday and since he is the maker and creator of these FABULOUS self tie Bow-Ties I declared August 9th National Bow-Tie day…in observance I’m here sporting the “Bunny Hop”, totally one of my favorites even though it’s IMPOSSIBLE to choose a favorite one.
In the mix is also a black Herve Leger front zip-uo skirt with Marc by Marc men’s suspenders and sunnies, a fine soft-pink lacey pair of tights, Allsaints ruffled bib white shirt, cropped tuxedo jacket and leopard platform short boots.
This is more of a black and white classic boy look, adapted to the Renaughty poin of view with a soft pop of color as well as print coming only from accessories. Keep it simple, keep it clean, keep it cool. And visit www.mgbakerco.com
