Mornings With P&Co

I've been following this company called P&Co. for a while. Based in the U.K., their designs are designed by biker lifestyle.

Make Your Leopard-Skin Dream Come True

Leopard, and animal prints in general, are really big for this fall. I feel like I'm channelling serious Courtney Love circa 1992 vibes in this cami pared with a big leopard coat.

Welcome To The Jungle

I used to wear band tees like they were a school uniform growing up. Being a weird punk kid meant constantly representing my favorite punk bands, just in case my spikey hair and combat boots didn't give you enough of a hint that I was really into punk rock (like, real punk rock...from the 70s and 80s).

Tangled Up In Plaid

Being able to layers clothes is one of the great things about fall. Adding layers to an outfit adds extra dimension to it, especially is the layers have interesting textures or patterns.

I’m A Creep

I'll be the first to admit that I totally turn into a pumpkin-spice-latte-basic-bitch during the fall. However, my basic bitch-ness stops there.

Take From Me My Lace

Millicent Lace Mock-Neck Tank Top Twig High-Rise Vegan Leather Pants Strut And Bolt Leather Heels I can’t lie. I think plunging necklines are the sexiest things ever. Hence why a majority of my tattoos are visible with a plunging neckline (with the ironic exception of this shirt, which has lace covering them). I’ve been into combining harder, edgier pieces such as leathers and metals with softer pieces such as laces and silks. I think the contrast of hard and soft looks nice and keeps me from looking too hard – like I just walked out of a Hot Topic, or too soft – like a pale fairy princess.

But The Leopard In You Silently Preyed On Me

It’s light enough that you’re not going to sweat while you’re wearing it in the sun, but it’s still heavy enough to keep you warm on cool autumn nights. Cuffing the sleeves (like I do) or adding fun patches or pins is a great way to customize your look too. Personally, I prefer slightly oversized denim jackets to fitted or cropped ones. The look is more casual and relaxed when the jacket is slightly oversized, and I feel like most people look like cowboys when they wear a fitted one.

Walk Him Down Past The White Oak Doors

Original Wayfarer Classic Chiffon Tank Top Biker Pants (Similar) Adair Bootie (Similar) Just when I started getting excited for fall, summer round 2 hit. Even though we haven’t been getting the predicted rain from El Nino, we’ve definitely been getting the humidity. After enjoying a couple weeks of cooler weather, it heated up all of the sudden and felt like July again. Unless you’re right along the coast, LA is hot and sticky right now with no signs of letting up. Even the evenings are no relief at this point. Me, being the genius I am, decided to run around Melrose Ave. in Hollywood, nowhere near the ocean.

Lick, Lick, Lick

A lot of stores haven’t even broken out their fall shipments in yet. It seems like southern California overall is a bit resistant to fall and winter. After wandering around Downtown for a while, I stopped by Union Square for a bite. It’s a must-visit if you’re in the Downtown area. It’s has all kind of food and drink spots and even a farmer’s market. I went with some ice cream, since it’s never really a bad time for ice cream, no matter the weather.
