Met a friend for brunch over the weekend and opted for this new dress from Tobi. I am in love with the lace up detailing and denim fabric. It’s a great casual shift dress that you can easily pair with a cardigan or leather jacket (to make it edgier).

Classing up any outfit, throw some white on it. White on white on white is my favorite go-to. I received this white strappy tank from Tobi and decided to pair it with my white tapered trousers. To give a little bit of color to this menswear inspired look I grabbed my camel coat and tan heeled mules to provide extra femininity. Everyone was also a big fan of of my mules as they are 1) comfortable and 2) cute, the ultimate pairing. This outfit also has me looking forward to Spring and Summer weather because who doesn’t enjoy flowing tops and linen trousers. A little bit Miami and a little bit So Cal.

A lovely sleek black outfit over the weekend was exactly what I needed. I received this amazing piece from Tobi and it is the perfect top for everyday wear or for a special occasion. In this instance, I was running a few errands over the weekend and decided to go with my usual mix of dressy & casual. One of my favorite looks that I always come across is a matching set. Luckily I paired this strapless top with my favorite pair of black culottes from Zara to give myself that Aussie like style appearance. I threw on my favorite new sneakers as well, my leather blush Vans that I can’t get enough of! They are so easy to throw on with any and everything. I’m in love with bare shoulders by the way and with my new shorter locks it works perfectly. Also the easiest way to accessorize is with a bandana, seriously, wear it as a choker, wear it as a neck scarf, the opportunities are endless.

It’s been gloomy yet again here in SoCal. For some reason it always rolls around when I want to be outside (go figure). Now, lets talk about the perfect Spring trend top to fit into your wardrobe. I pieced together a fun 70s inspired look on Friday with this Tobi Tangled In Between top. I have a good feeling this top will be on a continuous roll this Spring, it will be a great piece to wear with a pair of my high waisted boyfriend jeans. Until next time! Originally I had paired this with a faux brown leather skirt for a TRUE 70s look but decided to keep it a little more professional with my high waisted loose fitting trousers from Forever21. Anytime I have a pair of cropped trousers on I love to add some height with a small heel, it really helps elongate the body. Not to mention I’ve really missed wearing heels, I guess you could call it lazy girl problems. I’m so excited to see more of these 70s trends come to play this spring, make sure to grab some suede skirts and deep v-neck tops while your at it.

Check Point Coat – Tobi | Boyfriend Jeans – Guess(Similar) | Pointed Stud Flats – Zara

Feeling like a true 90s baby with my new Tobi Check Point Coat, which goes perfectly with my recent accumulation of minimalistic pieces. Statement coats are one of my favorite items to splurge on. Since I have a ton of jeans (mom jeans for that matter) and basic tops it makes it easy for an outfit to pop when I’m struggling to get dressed on early mornings. This one is especially comfy and not to mention it is light enough to wear during cool Spring days. I can’t wait to pair this with a simple shift dress when the weather warms up. (you can probably expect this in a future post)

I make it a note to accessorize with statement coats and shoes when I’m in a rush to get ready in the morning. The easiest outfit to put together is a pair of denim, basic top and a statement jacket and shoes. Lately I’ve been having trouble waking up in the morning for work so I’m more than happy to share my easy and fun way of dressing. Not to mention these shoes are killer, who doesn’t like a pointed loafer with studs? Stay tuned for a few additional Tobi posts with some amazing Spring pieces. Can’t wait to show you! Happy Shopping!

Where to Shop Online?

ShopOnline

We all know that online shopping is fun. It’s gives you the ability to window shop when the weather isn’t in your favor, when you are too lazy to get out of bed, or when you are at work and need a breather. Whichever reason you choose to shop online it has become a huge part of the shopping experience. While almost every brick and mortar store has an online counter part, it is becoming increasingly obvious that online retailers are taking over. Trendy clothing and accessories, a clean web aesthetic, and some free shipping/returns is what draws me into shopping at particular sites. I am going to share a few with you here today, some up and comers that are paving the way to taking over the Nasty Gal empire.


If you’re looking for: CHEAP TRENDS

You think “cheap clothes” and I’m 90% sure that Forever 21 comes to mind. It is hard bound into all of us to think of this successful retail chain as that but lets be honest, with such massive amounts of items to choose from you get lost in the hustle and bustle of what is really “on trend”. Try some of these online retailers who with their smaller selections give you a better insight into what is on trend while keeping prices low.

2020 Ave

This site not only has great prices but a lot of pieces you find on Nasty Gal or Wasteland can be found here for a much lower price. While they don’t offer as large a selection or update their site as much, you know that whatever they do have is a great low cost alternative to what you’ll find at Urban Outfitters.

GoJane

I was attracted to this site initially for their massive library of shoes and boots. Not only that, but I later found that they had a great deal of jewelry and clothing that was not only on trend but also found on sites like Nasty Gal for much cheaper. One complaint would be that the site seems to crash a lot.

Tobi

This website is extremely fun to maneuver through. There are tons of items from beauty to clothing to handbags. The only downside is you must be a member to join, however you are able to increase your amount of discounts through this membership. If you have enough friends why not!

Love Melrose

I first came across Love Melrose during a shopping trip to none other than Melrose Street in Los Angeles. Their online store is awesome and everything is ridiculously cheap. I’ve come to know them best for their vast array of leggings.


If you’re looking for: GREAT DEALS

The only downside to online shopping is the lack of “instant gratification” of trying on the item and taking it home. To make the process worth my while I scour websites for special deals, coupons and most importantly, free shipping/returns.

ASOS

Did I just hear free shipping and free returns? I am in love with ASOS, they have an incredible amount of products that run from ASOS basics to Designer pieces all for decent prices. Not to mention when they have a Sale it is truely A SALE. I feel a great amount of comfort when returns are free as well. When you have a somewhat awkward body shape and certain pieces whether it be pants, tops, swimwear or shoes, you can’t always be sure that a size 2 in one pair of pants is going to fit the same as a size 2 in a different pair. It is extremely helpful and attractive when a website ensures your returns are on them.

Gypsy Warrior

While I haven’t had the pleasure of purchasing anything from this site I will tell you that they have an awesome collection if you are looking for some trend pieces with a tad of vintage flair to them. Not to mention they also have Free Shipping!


If you’re looking for: HIGH END MIX

Luna B Boutique

While this is a local hot spot for those living in the Orange County Beach Cities, Luna Boutique has an extremely high presence online. With the inclusion of brands like UNIF, Chaser, and Flynn Skye your able to shop some high end pieces along with some low end trend items. Talk about the true mix and match.

ThreadSence

With Coachella’s past, Warped Tour’s present and Lollapalooza’s future, we all need some maxi skirts, crochet tops and as much gold arm candy as we can find. ThreadSence provides high end designers like One Teaspoon and For Love and Lemons mixed in with some more moderately priced tie dye’d, distressed, and lace’d this and that.

MissKL

If your a “brand groupie” you’ll love shopping on MissKL, the female counter part to Karmaloop. This site houses some of the hottest street wear brands out there, we are talking UNIF and Dimepiece garments that have been sweeping the nation. Not only that but house brands like MKL Collective have awesome pieces at a steal.

Wasteland

What I love most about actually visiting a Wasteland store is that they have tons of vintage clothing, if you put yourself up to the challenge of picking through all of the racks you will usually end up victorious (ahem, my Simple Minds band tee for example). Their website is a whole other experience however, somehow it has the way of suckering me into the latest Cheap Monday and MINKPINK dresses.

To those who read this entire thing, many thanks and happy shopping!
