I saw lots of beautiful, bold color-blocking at the Resort 2012 shows and it inspired me to inject some color into my work wardrobe even though I have to wear a labcoat :( It's what's on the inside that counts, I guess. I picked up these trousers at the SXSW style x where American Apparel held their 3rd annual factory flea market. The lines to get in were insane, but Mina & I snuck in after the rush-- enabling me to score these babies for a fraction of the cost. Makes me miss Austin & all the awesome fashion finds there. Anyway, to finish the look I topped it off with a sleek ponytail and a structured bag. Don't mind the ghetto Latin Kings crown tat on the back (circa my gangster days lol). :/ PS- Charlie made another cameo-- second pic, lower left corner... gotta love her. xxo

As of late, the rainy weather in MN has been making feel like I live in Forks, Washington aka land of Edward Cullen. Which, I probably wouldn't mind... Anyway, I decided to shoot in the rain regardless, just wish my camera was cool enough to capture raindrops though.
I love this top because I've been trying to find a sheer kimono for the longest, and although this isn't, it totally could pass for one-- not to mention being the perfect swimsuit cover-up as well. Enjoy! xxo, Davee

My favorite stylistas (and other random musings) from the past six months... wish there were picture-tagging capabilities on here. Full disclosure: the following photos are very low quality. They were taken from my pink Canon Powershot for when the occasion calls for something a little less hefty than the SLR. I mean, how would I hold my drinks and take pictures with that thing simultaneously? ;)
legs for miles..and miles!
some pretty people I know
Stephy's fabulous bejeweled Haus of Price kicks
who knew the boyf was so stylish? (so proud!)
details: patchwork elbows, velvet bowtie, crisp white pleated button-down & seersucker blazer. doesn't this all scream the Hamptons?
love this dress to pieces, the only thing that sucks is that it literally drapes every single part of your body leaving nothing to the imagination!
Outfits: Hot pink Rachel for Rachel Roy dress + Marc by Marc Jacobs "glass slipper", BCBGeneration sequined sweater + cargo skinnies, my coral outfit seen here, Bar III one sleeve maxi dress + white BCBG belt

We recently had new neighbors move into the house next door whereas previously it was occupied by an elderly lady who rarely ventured outside. Now we have Mexicans. And man, do they love to garden/landscape! Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is that I now have less privacy in my backyard to prance around in fancy clothes, high heels and makeup.. my little show has gained an audience :( WAH! So that's my sorry excuse for crappy photos today (aren't they never-ending?).
I secretly love all things baggy, but I am in noway a tomboy (in fact, very far from it). That's where my love for loose boy fit shorts, sweaters and masculine jackets come from. I love pairing all of the above with one very feminine thing, and in today's post, what else could be more femme than a pair of sexy, sleek pumps? Very a la Ashley Olsen :) Oh and the belt is something I picked up at this awesome vintage boutique, 'Feathers' in Austin TX when I was there for SXSW earlier this year. I've been having a hard time figuring out what to wear it with except for green cargo jackets (yes, I have more than one).. any ideas? Leave me a comment. xxo - Davee

Sorry for the lack of posts -- planning my sister's babyshower took over my entire life, not to mention sucked my wallet dry. :( But totally worth it! Not wearing anything too exciting today because the temps in the 'sota are currently at 102 degrees. Yet, I still find a reason to put on a sweater.. Wanted to show you a few of my favorite new things, braided friendship bracelets which was the most recent SFA SOTW and tribal beaded bracelets. xxo - Davee
