Gucci Gucci

So in awe with the Gucci Resort 2014.  The season features chic looks with metallics of course. There's nothing better than a Bronze Hologram dress, my favorite look of the collection.

Bringing my two favorite things together: Hip-Hop and Fashion.  
An oldie but goodie in honor of my Gucci post
Shouts out to all bad bitches out there.

Outfit of the Day: Ratchy with Proenza

Proenza, Proenza, Proenza.... What can I say? New York based designers Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez are so on point I just wanna go on the table and sing Young Jeezy and 2Chainz's R.I.P. because yes we definitely killed the club with the Proenza Schouler shoulder bags from this season.  My sister Stacy and I have acquired 2 of the most beloved bags of this season.  Stacy sports the classic black PS1 leather pouch, while I have the brighter blue PS1 with the gold chain, of course.... why would you ever say no to a gold chain? You can just call us Proenza Sisters.

Da Funk

(Karlie Kloss with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of French duo Daft Punk) 

Daft Punk's Random Access Memories has been the soundtrack of the summer, or at least 'Get Lucky' has been on every radio station at any moment in time.  This August, we are all waiting for the arrival of the August issue of Vogue with a Daft Punk spread featuring Karlie Kloss.  Can this be a dream come true? Daft Punk x Vogue?  I know it's mine!  Here's a sneak peak of what's to come in the August issue.

Walk Through the Valley

As I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I know for sure that I would want a pair of nice sunnies for this 90 degree weather in Los Angeles.  Protect your eyes from the sun in style!

The Long Awaited MCHG

Jay Z's 12th album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, has been on repeat since it dropped yesterday, to us average folks. Samsung and Jay-Z partnered to give exclusive pre-downloads of the album on the 4th of July. Too bad I didn't have a Galaxy Tab. Anyways the album is perfect for a summer night, chilling with friends. So far my favorites include "Holy Grail" with JT, "Tom Ford," and "Picasso Baby."  Totally ready for the Legends of the Summer tour in LA to perform some of these new songs!

Outfit of the Day: Miuccia! Miucccia! Read All About It!!

You usual don't see me stray away from the neutral colors, but I was feeling extremely eccentric yesterday with my neon green skirt paired with my violet hue pumps.  My friend Ben of Les Plus Dorés started his company a year ago, designing shirts with names of famous designers and the appropriate year they were born.  It has become a huge hit in the fashion industry and I can't wait for what's to come with LPD!  I paired the Miuccia Prada edition with a neon green Version Originale skirt that I bought in Paris.  It's hard to find because it is only available in store but here is something similar.  My shoes are violet 'Palais' platform pumps by Yves Saint Laurent.  You can find something similar here.  I picked up my necklace when I was in Milan, at Stefanel.  My everyday arm party consists of my metallic silver hair-tie (doubles as a nice bracelet), Cruciani lace bracelets, a double strap studded Michael Kors watch, and a Cartier love bracelet.  
Don't be afraid to mix colors and more colors.  Mixing hues like green and pink can brighten your summer!

Out with the Old. In with the New.

Out with the Sperry's and in with the European sneakers.  I just can't get enough.  My obsession with European sneakers has grown exponentially since my last visit to Paris in March.

It all started with my love for Bensimon.  The french label's iconic rubber soled tennis shoes have become a part of Parisian street style.  You will see them on the streets of Rue Bonaparte in Saint Germain des Prés to Rue Yves Toudic in Porte Saint Martin.  Available in almost any and every color you can imagine Bensimon's are the way to go for light, casual canvas sneakers.

If you are looking for something more sturdy here is my second love: Gola.  Based in the UK, Gola was established in 1905 in a small factory.  Today, they have grown into a world-wide brand with their signature stripe across the sneaker.  This summer, you can buy Gola's with flower prints or colors of the summer.  I recently acquired a pair of the blue and coral distressed sneakers that I have become OBSESSED with.  So comfortable and easy to pair with any look, you can be chic in sneakers with Gola.

Last but not least there is the Italian label, Superga.  Italians do not fail in fashion department.  As the Converse of Italy, Superga has within the past few years gained much respect in all of Europe.  Sported by fashionistas such as Chiara Ferragni and Alexa Chung, Superga's classic lace-up tennis shoes can complete any look for the summer.  Superga's are also available in many colors as well as glitters, studs and lace.

So get rid of those Sperry's and Tom's (even though it is for a good cause) because we all know that was SO last summer.  This season grab attention with your European sneakers. I know I have!

All three labels are affordable and under $65!
