Lately it has cooled down a little and I got so excited to finally start experimenting with fall fashion. Here is my first official fall look - nude and burgundy. I couldn't wait for the opportunity to wear this cashmere sweater from 360 Sweater - it's so soft! Wearing it feels like cuddling up in a cozy blanket. And I feel like I will wear this rose gold cuff from Flor Amazona a lot this fall - it looks a little antique and so precious.

I loved staying at the Empire Hotel during New York Fashion Week. It was right in the middle of all the action, literally steps away from the Lincoln Center (no cab required!) and had the best parties on the rooftop. One of them was the RewardStyle party - the coolest part was getting there: get out the hotel room, take the elevator and ... you are there =)
On a side note, I found my new favorite brand! Edward Roth is a luxury brand that connects art and fashion together! All their art is licensed and impossible to copy which makes you feel like a million bucks when wearing their unique and fashion forward clothing!
I felt so lucky to wear their exclusive and incredibly beautiful dresses during the Fashion Week - I never got that many compliments on my outfits as when I wore Edward Roth!
Be sure to check out their new store (or shall I say gallery?=)) in Soho, New York!

Like most girls, I have insecurities about my body, but with years I am learning to embrace it and accept it the way it is. It doesn't come without a challenge, but I am trying my best to stay on track.
My resolution for this year was to finally have the courage to wear a two-piece and actually wear a bikini at the beach, which was supposed to be the first time in the past 5 years!!
The never-ending heat in LA these days and the realization of the fact that summer WILL eventually end (not for a couple of months though) made me remember my resolution and finally step out of my comfort zone.
I guess the final pushing point was the fact that I got a hold of this beautiful maxi caftan in turquoise-green color from Jordan Taylor, which is perfect to wear on top of the bikini. So I am proud to say that I finally DID it. "Surprisingly" enough, nothing bad happened and nobody was pointing and laughing at me.
I guess the point of my little story is to encourage you to step out of your comfort zone. Challenge yourself and don't get caught up in insecurities, because bottom line - it's all in your head and no one else cares.
And thanks to Jordan Taylor for their amazing resortwear collection, which make every body look and feel good.

So I've been back in LA for a couple of days now, but it already seems like New York Fashion Week was just a dream. I can't believe that just a week ago I was running around New York trying to catch all the shows I was invited to. Here is my look that I wore on day 5 of New York Fashion Week.
I combined this unbelievably cute purple skirt from TBagsLosAngeles and black blouse from Rails. I didn't have any appropriate belt for this look, so I came up with an idea of using my Gucci foulard scarf as a belt and finished the look with a statement Zara clutch. By the way, I am obsessed with these mirrored sunglasses from Carrera. They were my go-to sunnies during the whole Fashion Week.

So New York Fashion Week is over and I am finally back in LA with lots of great memories and tons of photos to edit. I took lots of outfit pictures in New York (since I changed so many times =)) and will be happy to share them with you very soon. And for now, this is the outfit I wore PRE-fashion week here in LA - I have been into cropped sweaters lately (as seen here).

My days are all mixed up at the moment. I don't remember what was yesterday and what I have planned for tomorrow. I am definitely enjoying lots of events and exciting collections. On the downside, I barely sleep, eat once a day and change around 4 times a day =) Imagine how much time I spend thinking what to wear! Here is a short recap of the most exciting events recently.
Let's start with the most relaxing so far - a lovely Sunday brunch with PAVAN on the beautiful rooftop of the Refinery Hotel. I wore a feminine and incredibly pretty dress from Club Monaco, which seemed to be a perfect choice for a Sunday afternoon. Added this cute thin necklace from Wild Butterfly Boutique to keep the feminine vibe. Even the Pavan sangria (which is absolutely delicious and refreshing, by the way) matches my look =) By the way, check out Pavan's Facebook Sweepstakes - very exciting!

For the second day I chose neon and stripes - a simple three-color game which helps you stand out from the crowd. Obsessed with this Kate Spade clutch, that looks like a real newspaper.

New York has been crazy so far. Lots of events and shows, very little sleep, lots of heels and most importantly lots of photographs taken =) I am excited and happy to attend New York Fashion Week for the first time. I will take you on an exciting journey of my days here and will highlight the most memorable moments. So here is Day 1, which was probably the busiest full of amazing events and incredible memories.
The first look of the day was total Zara (yes, it always saves us when we don't know what to wear =)) with a beautiful envelope clutch from Givenchy.
