Back to School

August and September in Los Angeles are always hell-ish. In the midst of a seemingly endless Indian Summer kids are forced to go back to school. Though I completed University about a year ago, I  still remember shopping for Fall clothes for weeks leading up to my return to school and then of course wearing them as soon as I could even if I ended up sweating through lunch period until late October. Call me crazy but I could never resist a nice pair of tights or a fresh button up even when it is scorching out. This week Venice was selling some great back to school separates, some of which might even make sense in this heat wave!



This linen button up by Shirin Guild is a brilliant combo of crop top combined with bat sleeves. I don’t know too much about the designer except that we had a few of her coats/capes at the Veteran store many Best of the Bests ago. From what I have seen her pieces are avant garde with some definite Asian influences.

these Jill Sander oxfords are such a steal! Soft Slip Ons that are meant to be worn without laces and look cooler super worn in.

4. The style of French model Jeanne Damas

Let’s Match!

Remember the Vintage Thai Jacket I posted about from Veteran?!  Well now one of my all time favorite finds can be a part of your closet as well! No I will not be selling clothing over the blog but you can purchase the full length coat version of my jacket from the Venice store. My jacket is about waist length and this one hits mid knee, my jacket has a blue silk lining and this one has a purple lining with extra interior embroidery, but it has similar denim patchwork and colorful pattern. Unlike my jacket this version has drop pockets that add to it’s dramatic effect.  It’s so cool!

Moody Blues

Obsessed with this pair of heavy printed Miu Miu pants from the Veteran store! Although it is really too hot to be doing them justice right now I couldn’t resist enlisting Anna to help me show them off. Because we shot late the pictured took a turn for the dark and gothic (my favorite!). I am pictured wearing the Miu Miu pants with a Square Neck Top by Black Crane and Slip-In  Super High Swedish Hasbeens.

Business Casual

I must admit that I have always dreaded the day when I might have a job that required proper office wear. I never attended a school with a strict uniform policy and luckily working in or around fashion has kept me from having to buy clothing just to wear to the office. My work usually (non-verbally) requires me to dress using common sense while showing personal style  but still I have always admired women who could make office wear work for them without looking boring. So, here is my attempt at putting together some lose office wear using pieces from this weeks Granville Sale. Please note that the YSL coat, Comme des Garcons top, and Plantation dress will be available on the NCJWLA ebay!



Maison Martin Margiela heels


Vintage Bally Purse


Vintage Plantation Shift Dress with Front Pockets and a Cowl Neck



Wool Sleeveless Junya Watanabe for Comme des Garcons Top


Vintage YSL Rive Gauche Coat




Moschino Shift


Vintage Sweater


Lanvin Flats



 KILLER Chanel Shift


Happy Monday Everyone! Hope this inspires your coming work week!
