Shaking and moving at my local spot

Who’s been listening to Lana Del Rey’s new album nonstop? *raises hand* I think my favorite songs are “Get Free,” “Tomorrow Never Came,” “Summer Bummer,” and “Groupie Love,” but I also love “Lust for Life” and “Love.” What’s your favorite song from the new album?

These days have been very hot, and this Act Three dress has been an absolute godsend. I absolutely adore the strappy open back.

I’m also absolutely obsessed with this DIY YouTube channel called The Sorry Girls, which has some of the greatest (easiest) DIYs I’ve ever seen. I know I’ve mentioned I don’t generally like doing DIY projects (!!! considering how many DIY blogs I follow and DIY projects I pin on Pinterest), but I really have been bit by the domestic bug lately and I itching to create things with my hands.

I met Jenny Strange at West Coast Craft last month. Her booth was diagonally across from my mom and my Drifter Organics booth and she is the absolute sweetest. Her real (married) last name is “Strange” which is pretty cool, too. I always wanted to have a cool last name. I suppose “Hoo” is catchy, although it would have been nice if it was spelled “Who” or more streamline and edgy like “Hu.” I have a friend with the last name “Cherry” and I think it takes the cake as the best last name ever.

These pants and shoes are from Vreela, which is a new online womanswear boutique based in San Francisco. I found them through my friend, Logan, who modeled for the inaugural lookbook. Madison, the owner, does a killer job at curating the best emerging independent designers. I love how each piece in her shop is beautifully and ethically constructed—an art form rather than a fashion trend.

Glitter on my hearts

Glitter on my hearts

This may come to as a surprise, but I am really not a DIY person. I’m a DIY-admirer and I’ll do a DIY if I need to, but I’ve never liked working with my hands. I took a sewing class once and hated it. I never liked baking, either. Maybe it has something to do with having eczema all my life and my hands getting irritated by touch. I think that’s why I’ve naturally gravitated toward photography, graphic design, blogging, and fashion styling instead of more hands-on crafts. With that being said, I consider it a major achievement that I made this necklace myself! It took every ounce of patience I had and I’m good for a few more months before I delve into another DIY. 😉

I am head over heels in love with the print and fit of this Dusen Dusen jumpsuit. I wore it in the bio photo for my mom and my HGTV.com article. I feel like it would look flattering on virtually any body type.

I snagged these Bass x Rachel Antonoff oxfords from Crossroads. I fell in love with the girly glitter hearts, but have had them for months without wearing them because I couldn’t find anything that matched. Funny that the first thing I found that “matched” (I use the term loosely) was this patterned jumpsuit. What can I say, I love a good pattern-on-pattern.
