I’m Bringing Sexy Back…in For Love and Lemons

Planet Blue was having their amazing half off the entire store sale at the Venice Beach location. I of course made my way to the store and found one of the best dresses, the For Love and Lemons San Marcos backless white lace dress.

The San Marcos dress is a beautiful white lace dress with a short nude lining and a plunging backless design. The dress is classy with a surprise flash of sexy in the back. This particular dress would be perfect for a wedding rehearsal dinner, vacation, brunch, or date night. I wore it to a Golden Globes gifting suite. It is award season in LA and one must never be found without a dynamite dress to toss on at a moment’s notice.

After a successful outing in my new dress, I found myself yearning for another gem by the brand. I immediately hopped online and began researching the designers, best friends Gillian Rose Kern and Laura Hall, and websites or stores that carried the brand. The brand is based in Los Angeles and epitomizes ladylike rock and roll by strategically placed custom made lace and embroidery in their dresses. Their line reminds me of a sexy, mad hatter’s tea party hosted by Penny Lane and I want to attend. I am currently lusting after the San Marcos mini dress in red, Midnight mini dress in navy, and Night to Remember mini dress in all colors. I have included pictures of these dresses below and a few sites where you can purchase. Happy Shopping!


Cozy Cardigan

The weather in LA is still a bit gloomy from all the rain this week. It is a welcome departure from the sunshiny bliss, but it is chilly. Well…chilly by LA standards. Sorry to all of you that live in states that are in full on winter wonderland, snow covered street torture, err, I mean weather.

I went shopping with my friend, Randi, in Beverly Hills the other day and we stumbled into one of our favorite stores, Planet Blue. The finds there are always on point and have a bohemian flair to them. I found this Denver cardigan by Eternal Sunshine Creations that I fell in love with. The only problem is there was only one left and it was a size M/L. I tried to make it work and to be honest it looked great a little big and drapey, but it was just not the best fit. I will continue to search for it in the correct size and by all means encourage all of you to compete to snap up the only remaining sweater at the Beverly Hills store and brag to everyone that will listen that you scored the last one. For now I will daydream about owning it and settle for the two posted pictures for you to fall in love with too.

I Die For Tie Dye

Tie Dyed clothes have been around forever. Remember making them with your mom with buckets filled with colored dye, rubber bands and white clothing? The messy, easy way to get creative with clothing is cycling around again.

Living in Southern California, I also think of hippies and the Venice Boardwalk when I think of tie dye. But tie dye can be pretty and lovely if done correctly. Several brands do this well and my favorites are listed below.

Planet Blue’s in house brand, Blue Life has great options. Gypsy 05 has easy breezy dresses and Raquel Allegra makes the best gauzy tees and dresses.

Leave the dye alone and purchase your items from the sites below.
