Dreaming Out Loud

Alexander Wang Tank. H&M blazer. Vintage scarf & rings. Topshop skinny jeans. Pineapple oxford flats. Nightingale bag. OPI nails in Vodka & Caviar.

While I was in New York earlier this month, I had the opportunity to meet Street Style Photographer, Jason from Citizen Couture. He found this great location for a spur-of-the-moment shoot that was so serenely quiet I almost had to ask myself if I was still in the City. You can check out his website for more images of my shoot and his esteemed work here.

NYC at Night

Bebe leather jacket. French Connection dress. Love Label platform lace-ups. Vintage bag.
Hammered Ring Cuff courtesy of LOFT.

There's this electric energy that flows through me whenever I am in New York City. I feel at home there.
The LOFT flagship store was très amazing. Beautifully organized by color, cut and accessory.

I couldn't believe the party myself. To see and meet Alexa Chung was pretty much unbelievable!
After leaving the soirée for Dinner, I came back to find Alexis Bledel 2 heads in front of me in line. QUEL SURPRISE! I have to say both girls were not only prettier in person, but just as sweet as I'd imagined! Ra Ra Riot puts on a great show, amazing LIVE. Catch them if you can.

Visiting is bittersweet, always wondering when I'll be back.
I love New York, and hope to stay in the Bowery Hotel again soon!

Thanks Le Magazine for the Autumn/Winter 2010 Style Profile Feature.

LOFT Style Studio after party! - Ra Ra Riot / Alexa Chung

LOFT unveils its Fall collection at the Style Studio launch after party in The Bowery Hotel.
The party was as tasteful and charming as the Hotel it was hosted in.

An exclusive collaboration styled by: Tina Chai, Kate Young, Joanne Blades and Alia Ahmed-Yahia. These four fashionable women worked with the LOFT fall collection to create effortless looks from 10 chic Fall essentials.

The adorable Gilmore girl, Alexis Bledel, and I chatted a bit about our shared Birthdays. She playfully told me how "we are only 1 year and 1 day apart" in age.* Hers September 16 and mine September 17.

Waiting for the Band.

Alexa Chung! What a doll. I told her how much I adore and am inspired by her effortless sense of style. She complimented me back, "You're hair is so lovely. I love your braid." I, of course, beamed.

Alexa Chung was brilliant in the DJ booth. Loved her spin on Jefferson Airplane's Somebody to Love.

The Lucky Alpha Bloggers. With Vyque, Beth and Valerie. I was glad to be able to meet up again with them at the after party.

Party in full swing. The champagne and hors d'oeuvres were delicious.

Pretty lighting.

Paparazzi! Mena Suvari, Socialite Kate Schelter and Maggie Gyllenhaal also attended.

Ra Ra Riot performed! I have a few clips I may upload for you guys later on. My favorite songs were Winter '05 and Can You Tell.

Beet and pistachio salad at Gemma.


Was Mark The Cobrasnake Hunter staying on our same floor?

Bowery hotel room key tassel.

LOFT goodies.

Ray's Pizza.

All in all a tremendously fun and enlightening experience was had. Thank you Lucky magazine and Ann Taylor LOFT for having me.

Garden Dress

This dreamy dress essentially had to travel all the way from the West Coast to appease this East Coast fashionista!

Forever 21 and Bare Style rings.

OPI in Vodka & Caviar.

Dolce & Gabbana suede wedges.

I knew I had found my dream little red dress the moment I saw Natasha Poly modeling it for the Spring H&M Garden Collection.


Of course I was upset when I found out that my new H&M was not stocking it. Luckily, I had the help of my very generous readers. After many back and forth emails and twitter messages, Sahi was able to track one down in my size at her San Diego location. Check out her blog Barely Vogue for more Spring Fashion trends and tips.

The perfect party dress for these shoes!

Now I have to let you go so I can finish packing for a very special impromptu trip. ... Stay Tuned!
