Being A Madden Girl

It's that time of year again to bring out your favorite sweaters, beanies, and fur vests and cuddle up by the fire because Fall (and soon Winter) is amongst us! Ok... wait, well that may be true for the rest of this entire world, yet it seems to be that here in Los Angeles, that's not exactly all what it's cracked up to be. While everyone looks to us LA'ers as probably the luckiest bunch with a climate that at most would involve a light cardigan if anything due to this extreme heatwave we've been in for the past year, I am now only dreaming of the days where we're able to have some type of Fall or Winter and wear some of our favorite warm attire. Luckily though, I've been seeing a subtle climate shift here in LA where do I dare say I've been feeling a little... chilly... the past few days? Therefore, I've instantly gone full speed to (what should be) a Fall / Winter and am not turning back before the weather decides to change its mind!

And lucky for me, the cutest winter line by Madden Girl just came out at Kohl's with all you can dream of and more in the world of coats, fur jackets, vests, beanies, cold weather inspired boots, and the list goes on. So in today's post I've taken it upon myself to redefine what Fall and Winter is for us LA'ers and mix and match my two favorite elements and seasons into one to create our type of LA Fall / Winter ensembles. Rompers and sneakers to get you around easily throughout the day and this amazing fur jacket to add that Fall / Winter allure for these moments where I've been feeling that subtle brisk air. Hey you know what, maybe not having a full-fledged seasons isn't so bad after all!

Check out this cute little video I made below showing what it means to me to be a Madden Girl (and I also give you a sneak peak of the other looks from the line coming soon to the blog!)

As an Angeleno born and raised, Beverly Center has always been my go-to mall to guarantee me some of my cutest and most chic outfits. Having an array of stores from Louis Vuitton to Forever 21, there seems to just be something there always for any and every shopper. As my motto and mantra has always been that you don't need to spend a lot of money to look cute or look like a million bucks, I was so excited when I was asked to participate in the 2nd Annual Beverly Center Style Challenge where I was on a budget of $250 to spend at the mall to create my ideal Fall look. CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!

Heading to the mall, I already had a vision of what I wanted for my look-- a long skirt and a Fall hat (because as you can clearly tell if you follow me on Instagram @iamfashionlaine, I'm super obsessed with hats these days.) Yet, as I was hitting up my go-to favorite stores including Forever 21 and H&M, I started turning in a completely different direction with my look when I came across this long floral lace cardigan and leather capri-type shorts. I guess that's the beauty of shopping, right?-- never knowing what gems you'll find in the process.

Sticking to my guns to make sure I included my original hat vision though (I mean... how could you NOT include a hat like the one I ended up finding?), and then scoring an amazing deal at Bloomingdales in the process when I was able to get TWO House of Harlow 1960 necklaces for the price of one (one of the necklaces was on sale!)-- while this wasn't my original Fall vision, I'm super happy with what I did end up coming up with. And felt like a million bucks in the process!

Don't forget to check out the Save The Date at the bottom and hang out with me, Aimee Song "Song of Style", Chriselle Lim "The Chriselle Factor" and Adam Ghallage "I Am Galla" for the Finale Event September 18th!

PUMA Giveaway

PUMA Sneakers I kicked off yesterday with my season of giving by doing a Jake Miller giveaway so I thought... why let the fun stop there? As a huge sneaker fanatic, when I saw that PUMA was doing an exclusive capsule collection with Rime, I almost fell over in excitement over these super swagged out shoes. So many ways in which these gold sneaker wedges could be played and worn, I decided to opt out of my typical beanie look with these kicks and instead went for a dress and simple gold details-- showing you just how versatile any shoes and look can be. And my favorite way to share my love for things is to be able to share in the excitement with you guys!
