Friday, January 11, 2013 California Dreaming: Here Comes The Sun


It may have been a bit too cold and rainy in L.A. these past few days but we’re actively pursuing the light, even if it’s just with our wardrobe. Here are a few of our staff’s top picks to brighten up the winter blues.

Martine, Web Designer: ”The perfect dress for pretending it’s the summer of love, even when it’s raining.”


Sabrina, Planning Analyst: ”My boyfriend shopped my Nasty Gal wantlist for the holidays and luckily I ended up with this rockin’ denim jacket. I love love love it, and wear it with everything!”


Jacqueline, Jr. Buyer: ”It’s so hard to find a good print in shoes and this boot hits the mark with the watercolor floral and shattered crystal vibes! It’s begging to be worn with an all-white ensemble.”


Lisa, Jr. Buyer: “I need this baby to brighten up the winter wardrobe while still keeping warm. It’s not overly heavy looking, and has a spring forward palette!”


Kaitlyn, Sr. PR Manager:Jeans with a pattern and a fade, like a good men’s hair cut.”


Meredith, Merchandise Planner: “I plan on wearing this little number on my trip to Palm Springs over Valentine’s Day weekend!”

Jaclyn, Social Media Manager:

“I want to stand out from the sea of sequins in the Venus Maxi Dress.”

Lisa, Junior Buyer:

“Velvet and metallic are a knockout combo. It’s impossible not to make an entrance in the Music Is Lethal Dress.”

“The Trust In Me Dress, because who wouldn’t want to look like a giant bottle of champagne?!? DUH!!”
