Gen Girl

Last week was the annual Nylon Magazine Young Hollywood Issue Party where they celebrated all the best in everything Hollywood and fashion. And with that, it was only suiting and fitting that Nylon Mag teamed up with one of the most fashionable brands for any Young Hollywood fashionista to wear-- BCBGeneration. The setting was placed at the famous Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood where anyone that was anyone was there. With mobile photobooths, affirmation bracelet making stations, and (probably my favorite decor of the evening) pillows with amazing sayings like "I'm Somebody" and "Lemme Take A Selfie", this celebration was nothing short of perfection. Getting in on the BCBGen action and fun, I too converted into a Gen Girl for the evening wearing what I thought to be the most perfect Spring chic ensemble. The perfect beige look though couldn't be completed without the ultimate accessories including my all-time fave affirmation bracelets and this adorably amazing hot pink clutch with the saying "Be Free". Gen Perfection.

Mixin And Matchin

pocket tshirts You know those times when you have a top, bottom, or accessory you want to wear but just want to find that perfect time and place to showcase it? Well... that was pretty much the situation with today's outfit. When you have a pretty skirt like this gold Naveda one or a funky yet hit top with a popping pocket like this Urban Pockets one, you want to make sure that they get placed in an outfit that will instantly showcase their amazingness. When I had envisioned wearing this gold skirt, I always had in my mind that it would be paired with some heels to a cute and dolled up outing. And with the Urban Pockets top, I imagined it for a "off duty" kinda day out with my friends to the beach or so. But one day when I was on the go, I decided to try them together in a spur-of-the-moment-impatient-because-I've-been-dying-to-wear-both kinda impulse and instantly and automatically fell in love with the whole look. All that was missing was some funky cheetah sneaker wedges and a headband to top them off, and then this outfit automatically became my all-time favorite casually dressed up ensemble ever.

Dying over this top as much as I am? Urban Pockets is hooking it up with a discount when you go to purchase! Just type in Fashionlaine at checkout!

It's An Animal City

Skull Clothing Do you ever have those moments where you feel like you're locked, stuck, caged in. Those times where you feel like you're just in a rut or situation that you feel like you have no options, have no ability to step outside of what you know, or let alone, what you want. I remember that's how I used to feel about fashion. There were things that I loved, wanted to wear, wanted to do, but I felt stuck-- too afraid to go out of my comfort zone in fear of being judged or questioned. Wanting to be free to express my fashion sense and taste in unique ways, yet instead, felt locked inside a fashion cage. It's funny to think how when I first started out on my fashion crazed ways (I know, it's shocking to think that I wasn't always this fashionable), the mere thought of wearing a simple headband alone in public was unthinkable, nonnegotiable with those I went out with. That in itself was pushing the limits and envelopes of fashion. But now, years later, headbands have become basically my trademark, a simple extension of myself; it's to a point that if I'm not wearing a headband one day, that's when people start questioning what I'm wearing. It's ironic how with today's shoot my friend (and incredibly fabulous photog) Carmen-Rosa and I simply went to the California Incline right off the PCH just because we liked the look and feel of the place. But as we continued throughout the shoot, we came up with this concept of it being an "animal city" because it had a look and feel of us being these animals locked inside cages. And I thought to myself, what a more perfect outfit could this have been for this shoot than representing quite the opposite of my caged animal fashion self. I mean, I'm wearing skulled out sweatpants, a crop top, studded heels, and a big gold chain that spells "honey" for crying out loud! I don't think I could get any further away from the fashion norm and what one would deem as a "normal" and appropriate outfit than this. This shoot was representing being bound, locked, and caged in. Yet ironically with this outfit, I couldn't have felt any more freeing.
