Instagram Roundup

Happy Sunday! Hope you're enjoying daylight savings. I personally am so thankful for just an hour more of time. There doesn't seem to be enough. A lot has happened in the last couple months so I thought I'd do a quick round-up of the main stuff happening in my life. 
I'm going to a premiere next week and have been trying to find the right dress for the event. I stopped by the Diane von Furstenberg store in Melrose to try on her infamous wrap dress for the first time. I loved it so much but it wasn't quite right. Anyway, who else is gonna tune in tonight to watch House of DVF tonight? I love the premise of the show, which is basically to introduce smart, intelligent women to the competitive, incredibly diverse and rewarding world of fashion. Diane herself mentors 8 driven young women through press lunches to fashion shows to eventually become the DVF Global Brand Ambassador. I used to watch The Rachel Zoe Project religiously when I was younger, and I feel like House of DVF has the potential to be all that and more. In case any of you are interested, House of DVF premieres Sunday at 10/9 central on the E! Network. 
Talking to the sales associate and feeling so tall. 
For Halloween my cousin and I dressed up as bald eagles and traveled to silver lake for the evening. To be honest, I miss the good old days when you just went door to door to get candy. The only positive change about somewhat more mature/older Halloween celebrations is that the costumes definitely get better. Not a spider man in sight. 
Wearing a BDG Carina T-Shirt Dress and Nike 5.0 shoes
Went to the art store a couple weeks ago. I love when there are items that come in multiple colors and are then arranged into a rainbow. Makes me want to own all of it.
This year I moved out of the dorms into an apartment off campus, which I love. This is our living room, and I think it's so cute and perfect for a first apartment. 
At the start of the semester my room mate and I went to an orchard supply store and bought a whole bunch of plants to give life to the apartment. Greenery just adds so much to a living space.
Shower plants! I love these two. I need to get a lavender bunch to put under the faucet for some aromatherapy. 
I got this print "Everything is Possible" by Karina Aibetova a year ago and finally have a apartment to hang it in. I'm writing a science fiction film right now, but even just in general the universe fascinates me. 
Another set of prints that I have yet to hang in my apartment. They're framed though! 
Wearing a Marc by Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 fawn dress and Madewell Sightseer sandals
A couple weeks ago I visited the Night Gallery in Downtown LA for the debut of John Patrick Walsh III's collection. It was all made out of molded wax and not only did it look amazing but it also smelled so good in there. I've never really been apart of the art world (film is my #1 medium) but I totally fell for the environment. More than any other sort of event or opening (even fashion!) the people that gathered there that night were dressed so groovy. Instead of succumbing to fast fashion trends, they were simply cultivating and wearing their own style. The distinction is so so important.
Tried on this Hei Hei tartan coat at Anthropologie last weekend and have vowed to stalk it in hopes that it goes on sale soon. I feel just like David Sedaris in that story in Me Talk Pretty One Day where he stands outside the studio apartment owned by a man he just met and vows that one day that man "will be mine." 
I ripped out some inspiration from last months Vogue. Loving the jeans under a slip dress and shiny slip ons. Not to mention that dark red lipstick with a dark brow. 
I got tired of my Herschel backpack recently and so opted for this new teal Fjallraven Kanken backpack in "Frost Green." How awesome is it that these have been made for over 40+ years and were originally intended for Swedish school children? Also, Fjallraven means arctic fox. And that just makes me happy.
Wearing a Topshop shrunken leather biker jacket and JBrand jeans
I have continued my internship on the Fox Studios lot next this semester and so I've been continuing to experiment with appropriate office work wear without losing my sense of personality. Here's a tried and true uniform: jeans and a leather jacket or jeans. I even just bought another leather jacket cause I needed a variation in the uniform. Or maybe I'm just the worst person ever to handle a bank account.
