(Vintage Michael Hoban for North Beach Blue Leather Jacket- borrowed from MRS.Couture, Vintage White Fuzzy Top- The Purple Pink Rhino, Vintage Silver Metallic Pants- thrifted, Heels- Topshop, Vintage Silver Elephant Necklace- thrifted, Vintage Sunglasses- The Grove Vintage.)

I actually started out the day by wearing only the vintage fuzzy top and vintage silver metallic pants with the heels and necklace, but when I saw the vintage Michael Hoban for North Beach blue leather jacket at my job – a vintage clothing showroom – I put it on (mainly because I was chilly) and quickly realized that this was the “bread to my butter,” if you will. The outfit was OK, but that jacket really added the “WOW” factor, with the blue hue really popping against the white and silver.

Huge thanks to Lauren of Zinn Photography for taking my outfit photos!

*I wanted to give a HUGE thank you/shout-out to Kelly Kepner PR for locating this wall and instagramming it!*

MADE IN LA… Well, this wall has a couple meanings to me. One, it is a cool art wall to take outfit photos; and two, I was literally made in LA. I was born in Los Angeles, but after my parents divorced when I was three, my mom and I moved out-of-state. I’ve always thought of myself as a ‘California Girl,’ even though I didn’t fully grow up there. I moved back to LA for college and lived there for an amazing eight years before deciding that the LA traffic was too horrific and the rents were too astronomical.

Los Angeles will always have a special place in my heart. I grew up sheltered and miserably shy. When it was time to go to the West Coast for school, I happily went and left my semi-skeptical family behind (oh you’ll never make it, etc). I came to outgrow my shyness (to a point) and I am so proud to say that I survived eight roller-coaster years in the second-largest city of the United States! I know the subway system and downtown by heart. I’ve met some good people that I still call friends. Oh and COFFEE BEAN & TEA LEAF… (sorry Starbucks). Well, ok, so I’m not a fashion designer, as I first intended on doing, but I can still say that I did in fact, make it. Even though I’m not happy with a certain school, I wouldn’t take back (most) of the experiences for anything.

I enjoy visiting the city every chance I get, as there are still numerous pockets of the city that I have yet to see. I enjoy the mountains, ocean, and diversity that the city has to offer. And yes, I still say “the” before every freeway number (and I LOVE it). I miss smelling the orange blossoms while walking through Los Feliz, Pasadena, and Silverlake [etc]. I miss how walkable most of the city is…I got the BEST exercise! I love how historic Route 66 runs through the city and ends in Santa Monica. Lastly, I miss the quaint historic Spanish architecture and quaint craftsmen-style bungalows (basically the vast variety of architecture that the city has).

I am a creative, weird, unique (etc) individual…I am MADE IN LA

If you’d like to check out the wall, on the side of Cisco Home Melrose (not sure for how long it’s there for), it’s on the corner of Melrose Ave. and N. Laurel Ave.

I’ve been wanting to spotlight my “Los Angeles Postcard Print” vintage blouse I bought from the Instagram vintage shop- Revival Vintage Co, for awhile now and was glad when I was finally able to break it out and wear it for this post in collaboration with a few other Houston fashion bloggers. Since it was still rather chilly, I paired the top with my easy floral print pants to complement the look. Now, since it was all about print mixing, I did try to piece together several looks the night before, but this final one just “felt right.” I added my favorite green statement necklace from Stella & Dot (no longer available) and a bright vintage handbag I recently thrifted as added color bonuses.

This is my first style post collaboration with other bloggers. I was thrilled when I was asked to share my style point-of-view with five other lovely ladies, all with their own unique style personalities. The ladies with whom I collaborated with are:
