Poncho Style

Casual autumn outfit poncho skinny black jeans and booties

Are you at all surprised I’m cozying up to this poncho?  It’s chunky, comfortable, and a fantastic layering piece.  (Not to mention on sale too!)  It’s exactly the kind of winter essential for a perfectly, nonchalant style.  If you love army green as much as I do, you’ll love this one.  And, if you are willing to make a little investment, this classic camel poncho is my ultimate favorite.

Lace Ever After

DSC_2362She made me  do it!  My sister-in-law.  She picked out this lace ensemble and forced me.  Okay, she didn’t have to force me, however, she was adorably excited with her eyes light up about me posting this look.  So, I’m dedicating this post to her.  Primarily, for giving me an excuse to wear so much lace.  But, more importantly, for making me realize that I’m not the only one to light up to lace.  Usually, I try and hold myself back from posting lace repeatedly.  Today, I’m ready for self acceptance and to embrace my love.  Here it goes…Hi, I’m Mei!  And I’m a lace-a-holic.

Happy Wednesday!

Furrylicious

DSC_6410_2What I once thought was an over-the-top extravagance, fur has become an ubiquitous embellishment utilized in all things fashion.  During the fall and winter months, my fashion obsession shifts emphasis towards leather and fur.  Case and point, in this look!  Not only I have combined leather with fur, I’ve taken the ‘more is more’ approach adding in other trending details to this ensemble.  Zippers, studs, a high luster blouse, and a fimbriated chain bag.  I love rocker chic!

DSC_6382_2I still recall the first time I laid eyes on a pair of fur embellished heels.  I scoffed at its absurdity.  And now…meet my new pet Furrylicious!  He’s comfortable, extremely soft, and warm!  I know fur heels may not be for the faint of heart, but if you are ready to walk in luxury, Furrylicious is pretty irresistable. (And he’s on sale!)

Before NOON

DSC_5451Without stirring up venomous jealousy, I must share that autumn in Northern California is sublime utopia, if it existed.  We are still enjoying our Indian summer with warm daytime temperatures sandwiched between mild, crisp mornings and evenings.  These photos were taken in the morning when an ensemble like this is perfectly comfortable as the air is crisp.  Knee high, platform, stiletto boots before noon, you ask?!?!  Why not, I ask in return?! 😉

DSC_5588DSC_5487These Siwy, faux leather shorts were a tiny bit short, even by my standards.  So, I embellished and lengthened with a lace trim addition.  Voila!  I managed to sneak in a touch of lace AND gain a couple of inches.

Autumn Leaves

DSC_2313 2If I had to pick a favorite season with regard to fashion it would have to be Autumn.  And now that October is upon us, it officially feels like Autumn has arrived!  Contrary to popular belief, the leaves in California do change colors as witnessed in these photos!  I agree…it’s merely a fraction of the dramatic color change experienced in the East Coast.  Nevertheless, it’s still so beautiful and very mesmerizing.  This is where my inspiration for today’s look began.  Pairing camel with black is one of my personal favorite color duos.  It’s a classic!  Maybe because it directly draws from the colors in our surroundings.  Thus, it’s only natural that my ensemble complements the colors of the leaves behind me.

DSC_2331_2DSC_2244_2DSC_2316DSC_2335_2DSC_2209_2The sunglass below is Haley by Oliver Peoples in the color ‘spotted tortoise’.  It’s really an universally flattering frame because of the the upsweep and slight cat eye shape.  The net effect of the two brightens and awakens the face.  The best way I can explain it to my patients is that it gives the illusion of a mild face a lift.  And who wouldn’t want that?!

Bond Girl

DSC_3211_2Following my brother’s weekend wedding, we spent the next day tying up loose ends.  Here, you see me behind the wheel of my brother’s Aston Martin Vantage which naturally reminds me of 007.  It’s the elegant and iconic James Bond vehicle!  I’m having fun channeling the Bond girl within me wearing a slightly sexy and comfortable dress which would allow me to perform my special agent duties.  Fashion is fantasy! 😉

DSC_3229_2This is the second time I’ve styled these booties with knee high socks.  (Previously styled here!)  It’s such a great way to wear booties as it’s not only chic, it’s also comfortable and warm.
