BoxEight Fashion Week

For LA Fashion Week BoxEight Fashion Week presented three nights of "photographers and models in action". The installations showcased photographers and models doing what they do best in a very behind the scenes kind of way. We watched as the photographers took pictures, the models tried different poses, MUAs fixed their models' makeup, and designers reviewed the shots on their large 20inch Macs. Not that I don't love white tents, bright lights, and 60 ft of runway, but the catwalk isn't always the most ideal format for showcasing designs, so I thought this was really interesting.



With my dinner group and fellow bloggers Becs of Style With Benefits, Neekoh of LiveLoveLA, and Mel of Wrecked Stellar. This is Mel's picture btw!

Since I've started blogging, a white background set for picture taking has been at the top of my wishlist!!!

More of what I wore Saturday. I've been waiting for a chance to try this cropped corset top under a blazer. Cropped corset/bra tops over tank tops any day.



I'm wearing about four necklaces to make one huge, chandelier necklace.



Also, the armor ring is from Japan!

Then hopped on over to the Standard Downtown to meet up with some friends from SF.



white blazer: forever 21
cropped corset top: forever 21
tiered black trim skirt: h&m
shoes: nine west
assorted necklaces & bracelets from LA & Japan

  3. You look stunning in the Forever 21 White Blazer, Cropped Corset, and that H & M Tiered Black Trim Skirt. I especially love the skirt. You look even better than the models in the other photos do.
