Downtown Los Angeles

I wore this to dim sum downtown with the family on Saturday. I love the architecture in this city and the downtown area is no exception. We shot these photos at the Ahmanson Theatre/Mark Taper Forum, they have a beautiful courtyard there with this stunning fountain and statue.

I've been wearing a lot of green lately. Army green, forest green, evergreen; it's all good to me. I wore so much of the color the other day that my boyfriend said I looked "like a tree." Aw, thanks. Anyway, I bought this wool jacket at an army surplus store several months ago and it hasn't gotten much air time, but I took it out for a photo shoot on Friday and realized its beauty once again. I remember stalking a woman in the store who was trying it on until she put it down again. It was crazy, but Im glad I did. The green cargo leggings are from Pray for Mother Nature, a new brand established by Chip Foster- of the denim duo Chip & Pepper. These are kind of my favorite pants right now, not going to lie. I love the fit.



Vintage wool jacket, striped oversized tee from random store on Larchmont, Marc by Marc Jacobs leather cut out heels, Vera Meat copper centaur necklace, silver spine ring, lamb ring, and doe ring, Pray for Mother Nature cargo leggings.

I love the courtyard at the Mark Taper! I've always wanted to take pictures down there, but every time I go, I forget my camera!

Shevah said...

Haha, I love green. It looks great on you. A tree, really? Haha. Anyway has anyone ever told you that you have amazing hair? Well you do. I love those sandal heels and the pants are just perfectly fitted.

I'm obsessed with everything in your outfit. Leather, army green, stripes...I love it. That jacket was worth the potential buyer stalking, such a great vintage find. I've been loving army surplus stores lately for similar items (but not quite as beautiful!).

A great option is the Rebecca Minkoff Morning After Mini!!
It’s got a similar satchel-like shape with the rocker attitude and is more affordable but still good quality.

You can find it on eBay:

The leather is so soft!! Such a classic, iconic bag with an attitude!!
Love it!!! (ipad)
