I curated this maxi/romper because it reminds me of my hometown -- over-the-top, bold, free, shiny, disco and rock-and-roll. To me, it's L.A. in an a piece of cloth. And it's fun as hell.

I grew up in L.A., La-La Land. It's a big place, full of big buildings, big freeways and big-time plastic surgery. Depending on the day, I love it and I hate it. Given that so many hopefuls and tourists flock to the city every year, I've compiled a quick list of 10 hel...

I admit it. This look is kinda out there. But that's what I love about it. When it came to styling this pair of neon pink pants, I decided just to go for it. Throw caution to the wind. Have fun. Look a little nuts. Because if an electric blue faux fur jacket doesn't in...

It seems like just yesterday I was attending PoshFest 2015 with a few hundred of my closet, most stylish friends. Well, PoshFest 2016 (the annual Poshmark convention) is right around the corner and will be in my hometown -- Los Angeles! It's all going down October 1-2...

Was the L.A. Poshmark party a success? Uh, yeah. Many thanks to the amazing Posher hosts -- Jen, Tanya and Pauline -- for organizing this great event. It was held at the rooftop bar at Perch in Downtown L.A. Great view, great drinks, tons of women talking fashion. In m...

Went to a fab Poshmark party recently in downtown Los Angeles and hung out with some amazing fellow Poshers. The theme was black and white and all of the ladies delievered in style. For my outfit I styled a sheer lace top with some very comfy black  jogger pants, strap...

 While picking through my husband's vintage rocker and concert t-shirt collection from the 1980s, I got inspired to put together a mini look book using a few of them. He keeps them hermetically sealed in a drawer which is why they are in such great condition. After pro...

Here's the story behind this little black faux fur bomber jacket: I found it in the re-sale shop Buffalo Exchange for $14. It was exactly my size and in perfect condition. It was fate.


Faux fur jacket: H&M. No longer available, but found a similar one from Topshop here...
