After drooling over these pumps for several months and realizing that I drooled too long and my size had sold out everywhere, I was a tad bit sad until I found them sitting pretty in a boutique in Miami (see twitpic here of me wearing it.) At first I thought I was hallucinating. I was sunburnt and suffering a heatstroke due to falling asleep on the rooftop pool thanks to having too much fun the previous day. Once I realized that these were in fact the Isabel Marant pumps that I've been lusting after and the last pair which were my size I felt like my sunburn disappeared. Thanks to my lovely Wesley Mason, I brought these back to California with me and now they are sitting pretty on my desk. Unfortunately, I'm still quite burnt so I haven't actually worn them out yet.
The second picture is my current jewelry tray of my favorite pieces that I've been wearing all the time which includes necklaces from Anarchy Street, bracelets from Bimba & Lola, Low Luv, CC Skye, and a random jewelry place I found awhile back.
I'm currently suffering a too much sun attack illness because I fell asleep on the rooftop pool of my hotel on my last day. I've been feeling dizzy ever since I got back and have been sleeping nonstop. Can't believe I'm feeling sick after coming back from paradise. These pictures were taken before the sun attack and I've learned the importance of SPF. I swear, I put on SPF 30 but apparently it's not enough for the strong Miami sun. Gotta get my hands on SPF 70!
On Wednesday, I jetted out to Miami to shoot with Monica Botkier from Botkier for Vogue Eyewear CFDA City Collection. Monica designed a pair of sunglasses inspired by the city Miami which will be sold at Sunglass Hut later this year, so we toured around her favorite spots and really experienced the Miami life.
Can't wait to share with you guys more from this trip!
Can you tell the difference between the first photo and the rest of the photos? My lip color! I accidentally washed my YSL lipstick in the washer so I went to the Grove and got 3 more all in different shades. Almost fainted when the total was over a $100.....
Say Hi to Bijou, the little shitzu who's the newest addition to our family. My mom adopted her from a puppy mill pet store (horrible story) about a year ago when she was only a few months old and every time Charcoal and I visited her from San Francisco, they would play with each other like crazy keeping me up till late at night. A week ago while visiting my mom, I just took Bijou with me to surprise Charcoal and since then, they've been inseparable and both Wesley Mason and I fell too in love with her to return her back to my mom. It's crazy how fast you can fall in love with a dog... but that doesn't mean I'm going to love Charcoal any less and start leaving him at home. I'm just enjoying spending time with both of them and watching them play with each other!

Funny fact about this shawl: After buying this vintage shawl, I put it straight in the washer and dryer like most of my vintage clothes, and it came out all curly and knotted just like dreadlocks. I thought about what to do and basically unknotted each and every strand then ironed the crap out of it while watching Hawaii Five-O. It took a total of 3 hours.
I had the pleasure of hanging out in amazing vintage clothes at the Nasty Gal headquarters last week with the help of Stacey and Nick, the masterminds behind the styling of Nasty Gal. It's always fun hanging out with Nick and Stacey is absolutely stunning and funny! I've known most of the Nasty Gal crew since San Francisco and it's amazing how much the company has grown yet how genuine and fun everyone is. Sophia, the super-boss-woman of Nasty Gal has to be one of the most inspirational people I know and also super humble, not to mention beautiful, so it was definitely an honor to be a part of Nasty Gal for a day.
I hope you guys check out the vintage section (Here) I've modeled and also a mini interview I did with them Here!
