For this post, I want to introduce you to one of my favorite brands, Lavish Alice. It’s a UK based label that I’ve been in love with the past year. What really attracted me was the simple yet modern design, clean silhouette, bold colors, and ultra femininity. Most of all, I like that fact that it’s constructed of quality material vs. cheap thin fabric. All around, Lavish Alice’s clothes just feels more luxurious. You can find their label on sites like ASOS or Revolve, but I have found that it’s cheaper to buy straight from their website (even with the international shipping fee) when they have sales or markdowns. Lavish Alice isn’t really made for a petite person, but I have definitely found more than a few items that I can work with. This black dress being one of them.
If there is one thing I love more than Las Vegas, it’s Yves Saint Laurent! I have always been a fan of the tuxedo-style suit on women so I was ecstatic when I found out that YSL was the original designer of the look. The look is called “Le Smoking” and to this day, versions of it is still being sold in stores. The average YSL Le Smoking Jacket already starts at almost $3k. Of course, I cannot afford the “real” Le Smoking suit so I decided to recreate this look for less. I mean way less!
It’s so nice sometimes to just put one or two things on and you are ready to go. That’s why I think the chunky sweater dress is the ultimate staple for fall and winter. It’s also versatile enough to wear from day to night. To help keep your legs warm, I recommend pairing it with some over-the-knee boots like the Hiline boots from Stuart Weitzman if you know you will be staying out until the evening. I also would add a thick belt to make the dress a little more flattering at the waist.

It’s finally hump day! Since I didn’t have the luxury of having Monday off, I feel like the week is taking forever. Fortunately, this coming weekend I’m actually going to be staying in LA for once. The weather is consistently getting cooler even if it does fluctuate throughout the day. It can be really cold in the mornings and evenings, but gets pretty warm in the afternoon so having something versatile to wear is key. That’s why I’m really excited to talk about this amazing faux fur vest from Topshop!
Every year, I cannot wait for the winter season! That means… SNOWBOARDING! I started snowboarding about 6-7 years ago. It was one of those things that I tried once and fell in love. Learning snowboarding as an adult was super painful for my body and my ego. I do though have to give a little shout out to everyone that has tried to teach me along the way. I’m sure it was just as slow and painful for them too! By no means am I an expert today, but I thought I would write a beginner’s guide to snow gear and share my experience for anyone starting out.
