One Thousand and One Nights

By balenciagaxl · January 21, 2014 · 0 Comments ·





Loving the overall feel of Sunday's Atelier Versace presentation. For me it started out with obvious and powerful Grace Jones references that later mellowed into a sexy space-age Dothraki-Princess Jasmine all rolled into one. The Swarovski detailing and decadent purple fur only added to the sweeping feel of glamour. I can't get enough!

l'amitié de la mode et la musique

By balenciagaxl · January 4, 2014 · 0 Comments ·

So... I'm not always the biggest fan of Rihanna. I like her music but sometimes she's a little too rough around the edges on social media for my taste. That being said, I'm really excited for her to be the face of Balmain Spring/Summer 2014. I think she's got the perfect combination of personality and striking features to make one kickass campaign. Check out this behind the scenes look at the entire process via Balmain's official youtube page and browse their page for even more behind the scenes footage!

Classic Charlize

By balenciagaxl · December 21, 2013 · 0 Comments ·
Charlize Theron channels LA elegance in a hazy palette of black, blue, grey, and white for Dior Magazine #4 by Patrick Demarchelier. Makes me wish I could still be hiking high above the Hollywood skyline in that gorgeous SoCal sunshine.

Autumn Weekend

I love Doutzen Kroes, seriously... what a babe. How does one make lying around in autumnal knits and pure basics look so effortlessly beautiful? I suspect Telegraph Fashion's amazing production budget had something to do with it... but props nevertheless. Doutzen will forever remain one of my favorite dutch beauties. Photos by Will Davidson.

Baby Blues in Brooklyn

So I didn't actually catch the VMA's last night, but I obviously had to check in on the fashion (in addition to JT's 'epic' reunion with N'sync) And I must say, I'm impressed with these leading young ladies! Here are my favies from the big night in Brooklyn (From right to left): Selena Gomez in Versace, Holland Roden in Naeem Khan, Rita Ora in Alexandre Vauthier Couture, and Taylor Swift in Hervé Leger.

Ain't Born Typical

By balenciagaxl · August 12, 2013 · 0 Comments ·

Hey there lovelies! So I've really been stepping up my maxi dress game lately and when I came across this effortlessly cool jersey dress by Raquel Allegra, I must say, it was love at first sight! I love the slimming/elongating effect that the maxi silhouette has on my body type and the tie-dye patterning has just the right amount of edge! This dress looks great with piled on jewelry like this, this, and this + a slouchy chic bag like this

God Save the Queen

By balenciagaxl · August 7, 2013 · 0 Comments ·
Remember Aaron Eckhart's frighteningly real portrayal of Two-Face/Harvey Dent in the Batman series' The Dark Knight? Well this is exactly that minus the horrific accident, lost love, and weird Christian Bale voice plus the glamour, edge, regality, and sexiness that can only be delivered by the creative minds of Vogue Paris. Crazy right? I think I prefer this British punk meets Queen Elizabeth version of Two-Face to his cinematic counterpart.

The Rumor

The rumor is true! Topshop jeans have an incredible fit. I recently just bought my first couple pairs and I have to say... I'm impressed! They're perfectly snug from thigh to ankle. The variety of colors, fits, and afforable price are icing on the cake! Get your pair here.

Vampire Diaries

By balenciagaxl · July 28, 2013 · 0 Comments ·











Anna Selezneva channels sexy gothic chic in the For Love & Lemons Fall 2013 campaign entitled "Interview with a Vampire". In addition to delicate black and white cut-out dresses, sheer detailing, and rich velvet... Anna rocks an amazingly deep red "just bitten" lip. I can't emphasize enough how much I love wearing dark lipstick. Not only is it a totally sophisticated look but a fun way to channel your darker side! I recommend MAKE UP FOR EVER's Rouge Artist Intense in satin blackcurrant.

In the Ring

By balenciagaxl · July 27, 2013 · 0 Comments ·


I was so happy when I came across Fashionising.com's "8 of the best: mid-finger rings" feature. I am a huge advocate of these pretty little digit adornments! But I must admit, I was kind of disappointed that Catbird wasn't on the list. My girlfriend and I were obsessed with this cutie Brooklyn-based brand's First Knuckle Rings back in like, 2009! And since then, their collections have only grown in amazingness! Currently, I'm eyeing the Polly Wales 'Constellation' ring and the Digby + Iona 'Code of the Sea' ring.

Hollywood Neon

Make-up artist, Patrick Eichler creates Hollywood neon color in this stunning photograph by Jeff Tse. Reminds me of hot pink summer sunsets at the beach and cruisin' around California Girl-style in a Jeep Wrangler. Model is Mona Luders.

A day at Crystal Cove

By balenciagaxl · July 20, 2013 · 0 Comments ·

What a busy week! Has me wishing it were 4th of July weekend all over again and I'm back at the shores of Crystal Cove with the boyfriend in Laguna. What a little piece of paradise! I miss it there. It's like another world compared to the restless LA scene. And so many cute date-night-quality restaurants! Here's something I'd love to wear to say... The Watermarc on S. Coast Hwy ;)

Calypso St. Barth 'Sarah' asymmetrical maxi dress (calypsostbarth.com), Ancient Greek Sandals Clio two-tone leather sandals (net-a-porter.com), 3.1 Phillip Lim 'The Pashli' medium two-tone shark-embossed leather trapeze bag (net-a-porter.com), MIMA CASA DE DISENO INC. purple agate necklace (calypsostbarth.com), Joanna Dahdah feather ring (boticca.com), Chan Luu beaded wrap bracelet (shopbop.com), Kenneth Jay Lane triangle drop earrings (asos.com), GUESS silver-tone and mint ring set (guess.com), large cut ring (whisties.co.uk)

twinkling bride

I've never really been big on bridal fashion, but with Anthropologie's sister store, BHLDN opening up in Beverly Hills... I decided to take a peek! And I must say, I was absolutely blown away by how affordable these gorgeous vintage-inspired dresses are! Not to mention their delicate headpieces are to die for. I will definitely be visiting the new LA location... if only just to dream a little... <3

I love the flowery, romantic feel of the Moda Operandi spring/summer 2013 campaign, featuring the lovely good looks of miss Karlie Kloss.

The Old Homestead

By balenciagaxl · April 3, 2013 · 0 Comments ·






Rosie Huntington-Whitely is proof yet again that the Western theme will never cease to trend. I love this totally "Vogue-esque" update made possible through the use of interesting weaves, textured fabrics, lushious furs, and classic studding. If only the life of an ordinary cowgirl were as glamourous... I might consider a career change! Images from Vogue Brazil - April 2013
