Bohemian Musings

LA FASHION MONTH IS HERE!!!
Can you tell I'm really excited?!?!

[[UPDATE 10/14/09]] Just got back from LA Fashion on Broadway tonight. Expect front row snaps of the runway shows, stylish trendsetters, and models...post tmrw!

Over the weekend I checked out the famous Fairfax Farmer's Market. Even though everyone talks about it, I was a bit disappointed. To dress up for the occasion, I decided on this Anna Sui for Target dress. The print has such a bohemian vibe to it.

It was actually a little short, so I wore a cutout dress that had fringe at the bottom under the dress to add some length.

>This vest is one of my favorite pieces in my closet. The dress has a sort of awkward cut to it, so I paired it with the vest.

But I do like the sleeves, there are two elastics that let you push up the sleeves and give it a pouffy look.

I'm all for wearing socks with sandals. I'm wearing two sets of socks, the dark brown over beige ones. A little trick I used to do in high school to make my uniform more interesting :)

I'm wearing an embroidered vest by Sue Wong, dress by Anna Sui for Target, lace/fringe dress (underneath) from H&M, socks by Hue, and shoes from Charlotte Russe.

Also, stay tuned for my interview with the Billabong model
Samantha Basalari
Gorgeous knockout good looks and incredibly witty personality! Definitely my all time favorite "it girl"!

  17. Socks with sandals for LIFE! only super cute strappy wedge/heel sandals though, as you do so well here.NOT birks with dirty white tube socks.

    I love Charlotte Russe for shoes because they do so many styles and if you wait long enough they go on sale for like 7 bucks!
