Look Du Jour

Elizabeth & James Evona wrap dress

Intentionally Blank mules

Celine bag

Cedros Design District-Solana Beach, CA, 6/5/2015

Just hanging out with some plant life in a gauzy spring trench! But seriously though, aren’t these tall grass stalks the best things ever? I honestly would love to have a room full of these guys! Just looking at something so vividly green everyday, would make me feel so alive.

Kisses, Lauren

Look Du Jour

Tabula Rasa sweater

Vintage pleated skirt

Coach rivet sling-backs

Celine bag

I spent the day exploring the seaside neighborhoods in La Jolla yesterday. Every street corner I turned, the ocean was in full sight looking it’s deepest & most hypnotizing blue.  If you ever visit San Diego, make sure to check out Bird Rock-it’s mind-blowing.

Side note* I bought this skirt because I honestly had nothing like it, and I’m pretty stoked -it’s totally giving me Celine vibes which I’m not mad about.  This one here was a close second <3

 Kisses, Lauren

Look Du Jour

Sandy Liang halter top

Valentino bag

Intentionally Blank Honcho mules

I introduce you to Sandy Liang, my newest current obsession. Words can’t even describe what I feel for this young pup fresh out of design school. Her SS15 collection is a 90’s dream. Now excuse me while I go dye my hair 5 shades of blue..or pink.

Kisses, Lauren

Look Du Jour

Bebe top (from middle school archive) this is cute too

Acne Studios pop vintage jeans

Coach rivet sling-backs

Mansur Gavriel bucket bag

Ahh… the good ol’ days of middle school when we would go to the mall with just 25 dollars in our pockets to pick out that special piece to wear to school the next day.  The top I’m wearing was one of my all time favorite pieces, must have worn it a gazillion times.  It was retired in my closet for over a decade when I decided it needed to make a re-appearace!  Some special spell this little number has on me..I just can’t part.

How about you guys?  Is there anything you could never part with?!

Kisses, Lauren

I am absolutely loving the details of this parka by Assembly New York. I gravitated towards it because I honestly haven’t had anything camouflage since the 3rd grade, so this is makes me super giddy-also the fact that its a jacquard makes it feel like an heirloom that has been in my family for years. Hell yeah, cheers to the new Assembly Los Angeles boutique (just opened on Melrose)!

my first Ted Talk (if I were invited to give one)

IMG_5556Look Du Jour for a TED Talk

vintage pleated midi skirt 

Intentionally Blank Honcho sling-backs

 

Why I want to give a Ted Talk:

I would be thrilled to be invited to give a TedTalk . I’ve watched at least a hundred of these on the Internet and each of them has changed me forever in a good way!  The three that I’ve watched at least 5x each are by Tavi Gevinson on female role models, Susan Caine on why the world needs introverts , and Tony Robbins on why we do what we do .  I now realize I’m not crazy and my brain is working exactly as it is supposed to, thanks to these forward thinking and brilliant speakers!

What would be the subject of my Ted Talk:

Bullying is the number one thing on my mind today.  It is a subject stirs my anxiety and gives me heartache to know that there are kids out there in the world who are currently suffering just as I did more than a decade ago.  When I was in middle school, my fellow classmates bullied me mercilessly and called me names such as “animal” because I was a little disheveled (I hadn’t learned the art of fashion yet) and “dimental” as a play on my last name (Dimesky).  I never told a single sole: not my parents, my teachers, my friends, my brother, nor anyone at all.  I simply suffered in silence, all alone, soaking my pillow every night with my tears.

How could I help someone with my Ted Talk:

In my talk I would tell my audience how important it is to reach out to every child you know and to talk to them about bullying.  I would tell them to spread the word how important it is to stop the cycle and there is no reason for anyone to suffer the humiliation and lowered self-esteem caused by this cruel phenomenon.  I would show them the video by Barack Obama, the president of the United States, who claims it is unequivocally wrong, not to be tolerated, and that we must all work together to stop it. I would fervently address my audience and ask that they pledge to take a stand and become an advocate for kids who are victimized and need the help of an adult who has the power to do something.

I would finish my Ted Talk with one of the most beautiful and compelling anti- bullying poems ever written by Shane Koyczan. Before walking off the stage, I would tell everyone to contact me if they know any child who needs someone to talk to.  It will be my pleasure to be that powerful voice which I had never known.

What I would wear and why:

Since this talk is extremely important and includes a call to action, I want to present myself as both an empowering and feminine woman.  To achieve my look, my shoes should be black with a low heel.  The shoes will help me to look steady, grounded, and unwavering as I speak.  My choice for a skirt is a long ivory midi to represent my feminine and classic side.  A long sleeved black or ivory buttoned down blouse with collar (still searching for the perfect one) will be the final piece!

Would you ever like to give a TED Talk?  What were your experiences as a child? Were you ever bullied?  What subject would you choose for your TED Talk?  Is there anyone you would like to help in dealing with a difficult situation?  Let’s hear your point of view- please leave a comment!

Kisses, Lauren

(Banana Republic jacket, Reformation skirt, Rockins scarf, Isabel Marant boots)

I got dressed today in one of my favorite care-free looks-a simple, yet classic denim jacket, a pair of perfectly beat up boots, a multi-toned suede skirt, and one of my closet staples-a skinny scarf. One of my favorite things about fashion is that it takes you away to another place-like a fantasy land -you can dress how you are feeling each day, and no one can tell you otherwise.

Do you guys feel that your mood affects the way you dress? Tell me a story!

Love,

Lauren

P.S. *Don’t be afraid beat up your boots a little bit! The more worn in, the better!

(Lykke Wullf Stella top & Nikki overalls, Sandro shoes) 

One of my favorite things about living in LA, is being inspired by all the talented people that reside here. One of my co-workers is the creative mastermind behind “Lykke Wullf” a eco-friendly clothing line hand made by the designer, Jemma Swatek. When I get dressed in the morning, I always want my outfit to be easy, laid-back, fun, and original-thats why Lykke Wullf is a perfect fit for me. If you want to get an overload of cuteness, check out here website here!

Love,

Lauren

P.S. *When you want to wear a dramatic lip color-keep your eye makeup light and simple, I always suggest a pretty beige or nude with light mascara!

Deer, its blue!

(Alexa Chung for AG “Honey” dress, Sandro oxfords, Illesteva sunnies)

One of my all time favorite style icons is hands down, Alexa Chung. Everything she wears is quirky, but chic and, she is never afraid to be daring with her personal style! As you can imagine I was utterly stoked when she co-designed a collection with AG. Unfortunately, I slept on getting my favorite dress when the collection launched a couple of months ago, and without fail, it sold out. But….low and behold, my prince charming by the name of Ebay, had the key to my heart-the dress I had been searching for! Sometimes, you find things in places you’d never think to look-just reminding you lovely readers that Ebay NEVER fails!! :)

Love,

Lauren

P.S. *Always try mixing a print with a basic/solid color-it adds dimension to your casual look-and overall, gives your outfit a more personalized feel.

Hey guys!

Can you tell I have a slight obsession with stars?! There is just something about them that I’m drawn to. I got dressed today and thought to myself…star overload?…never!

I spent the day romping around Del Mar San Diego. If you ever get a chance to make it down there, head down to Seagrove park. It is so peaceful and serene and you might even be able to catch a wedding (I’m a sucker for weddings!) 

Love,

Lauren

P.S. Try to match your outfit with an a fun accessory for a touch of rock and roll glam!
