March 14, 2010

On March 11, I attended the LAFW two-point/oh! Party at Broadway Bar. Hosted by Kelsi of Dedicated Follower of Fashion, it was a fabulous opportunity to meet fellow bloggers and reinforced my delight in being a part of the blogger community. The doorman even complimented my peers telling me that he’s never seen so many well-dressed people in one place!

* u: create notebook from the Executive Notebook Series

I’m looking forward to using all of these fabulous products. Thanks, Kelsi!


P.S.- I wanted to remind you to RSVP to my SLUMBER PARTY and to submit your photos! The details are below-

Who: You- because you’ve made it to Wrecked Stellar- which means you’re pretty fabulous and exclusive already. I’m also free-loving!

When: Saturday, April 24th, at 8pm

Where: Virtually at my Los Angeles pad

Why: Because you don’t want to see me sitting with several bowls of popcorn watching 16 Candles by myself- (though I totally would do that anyway)!

Activities: Barbecuing on one balcony, pretending the other balcony is a stage and dancing to the likes of “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” and “Livin’ on a Prayer”, TP’ing fraternity houses at UCLA, soaking it up in a water balloon fight, playing “Never Have I”, swooning over Jake in 16 Candles wearing our mud masks, and falling asleep tucked away in our sleeping bags with the fun moments from the night tucked away in our memories.

Attire: Pajamas- whatever form they come in for you.

How: E-mail a photo of yourself to in your attire in whatever environment and capacity you want. You’re my guest so it’s up to you! I will post all of my guests’ photos and blog links (if you have one) in my April 24th post so that everyone can share in our party fun!

RSVP: I set the date in April so that you’d have enough time to clear your calendar, think of a cute pajama outfit, and take your photo! Please RSVP in the Comments section by April 21st so I can buy enough food for everyone. I will be sending reminders out in future posts, but I’m sure you won’t need a reminder because you’ll all want to come! xoxo

    Feels like I’ve gone through a way-back machine. All denim outfits and brilliant pink and green abstract patterns. Totally 80’s!

  40. March 19, 2010 2:39 pm

    OK, so I didn’t think mixing the patterns would work, but you managed to pull this off seamlessly! Not sure how though. I think it works because the houndstooth and stripes are both black and white. You look so pretty with your hair up like that!

  41. March 19, 2010 3:26 pm

    Great blog, I love your outfits!

  42. March 21, 2010 11:03 am

    thanks so much!

    that outfit is flawless, i like all the bright colours, great!

  43. March 21, 2010 3:22 pm

    You look stunning here!! I absolutely love the mixture of the houndstooth, stripes and bright colored graphic dress! You can do no wrong here!

  44. March 21, 2010 11:39 pm

    this outfit is perfection! your dress is stunning, i want it πŸ™‚ i love your shoes and your jacket goes so well!

  45. March 23, 2010 3:44 pm

    I love how you aren’t afraid to take risks in your fashion selections. We need more people like you.


  46. March 26, 2010 7:30 am

    I Love the outfit! Rocking the updated 80’s look to perfection. I am a big fan of houndstooth black and white mixed with a bold bright print. Well done!
