Today’s look takes me back to my visit to Japan in winter 2010. Shopping there was insanely crowded and I quickly noticed that girls there easily sacrificed warmth in the name of fashion. Even though I wore layers upon layers under my extremely puffy down North Face jacket, I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw girls wearing floral mini skirts, tights, some faux leather boots, and fur hooded parkas, all in 30-40 degree weather. Even though I loved the look, I knew I would never be able to pull it off until I came back to good old “60 degree winter” in the Bay Area. I think I will always be inspired by Japanese fashion, but only if I get to stay warm!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and hopefully a fruitful Black Friday! I I’m a bit sad that Thanksgiving has come and gone, but the good part is that the holiday season has officially kicked off and now I can listen to Christmas music without anyone questioning me. Haha. I feel like I have been shopping for the past 3 days straight and Cyber Monday is no exception. I am all about deals so I wanted to share where I’ll be shopping today! Good luck!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Time for food, family, and fun! Growing up, I was always taught to dress a little nicer for family get togethers, which meant lots of holiday sweaters and dresses. This idea can definitely get a little mundane so why not forgo your typical Thanksgiving outfit for some lace and velvet? Velvet has always reminded me of the holiday season and I am loving these edgy velvet skinny pants. These pants may not give you the stretch you need for Thanksgiving dinner, but hopefully an extra long top will take care of that. ;) Happy Turkey Day!
I’ve been in a pretty casual wearing mood lately, which might have to do with the cold weather or being sick for two weeks. Either way, oversized sweaters seem to be my go-to piece these days. Paired with skinny jeans, a skirt, or even leggings, these “boyfriend” sweaters make a great comfortable and loose piece that you can throw on over virtually anything. Let’s just hope this “boyfriend” is a good one!
It may already be mid-November and on the verge of winter, but living in California, it’s just starting to feel like fall. And there’s nothing like a good sweater to kick off the drop in temperature. I’ve never been a fan of thick chunky sweaters and love that this one has a so cal surfer look and can be worn year round. This one may be a bit to “holey” to keep you truly warm in most places during the winter, but it will definitely do in California.
Sweatshirts to me have always been something super casual, something you wear when you’re at home, sick, or rushing to class. But these days, it’s so much more than that. Colored, patterned, or dressed up with a statement necklace, it can be a fun and versatile piece. This lace sweatshirt definitely brings new meaning to “casual Fridays”! Happy Friday,everyone!
The rise of geeky girl clothing has been amazing over the past ten years. What was once impossible to find your favorite TV show, movie, or video game on a girl sized shirt is now so easily available. Ashlie Eckstein saw potential in geeky girl clothing early on and spawned Her Universe, a sci-fi focused clothing brand for women. I remember my first Her Universe purchase clearly at SDCC many years ago. A cool looking Star Wars hoodie in my size?? I couldn’t believe my eyes! And to this day, that hoodie still remains one of my favorite Star Wars hoodies that I own. Since then, Her Universe has gone from just a store on the con floor to a very well known brand and today’s outfit post features one of their incredible dresses!
