grunging in denim

DIY old Esprit denim vest / HM denim jacket / F21 sweater / BDG pants / Opening Ceremony boots / orYany bag from the boy

I've had this Esprit denim jackets for years but since I didn't like the fit of it I never wore it much, then I decided to take the sleeves off and make it a vest, now it's in heavy rotation! Just wait till I show you guys what I did with the sleeves later.

I love how she looks like a glam seductress hailing from 20s Shanghai.

netted top ripped bottom

UO sweater / Frankie B jeans / Aldo pumps

Happy Cyber Monday! Anything in particular you guys are trying to snatch today? I'm trying to avoid online shopping today as much as I can seeing that I have no self control and will most likely purchase way more than my wallet can handle. Though we are in smack middle of fall, LA was surprisingly hot this weekend, so I decided to be a little scandalous with my holey top and jeans to avoid the heat. This will be a great piece to layer under chunky sweaters too if LA ever decides to fully cool down. I can't believe Christmas is less than a month away, what's on your wish list?

studded blazer

Thrifted blazer / Alternative Apparel top / Hudson jeans / Aldo shoes

Hope everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving! I spent all day with my entire family, we haven't all been together like this for almost a decade and I was so grateful for our long pending reunion. 
This blazer I found at the Rose Bowl flea market for 20 bones! Obviously I love it for the neutral gray color and studded collar, the over sized fit is unexpected perfection so basically it was love at first sight! I got these shoes when I was in Vegas, I had to have them cuz they reminded me so much of the Isabel Marant ones, so until I can afford those, these will do the job just fine!

favorite black friday goodies

Zara jacket / HM sweater dress / VV boots / Topshop bag

All of us penny pitching fashionistas know that a new favorite piece in your wardrobe is unfortunately totally worth the crazy crowds on Black Friday. I'm wearing two in this outfit! I bought both the jacket and the sweater dress on Black Friday 2 years ago and they're still just as loved as the day I got them!  Nothing beats the sense of achievement after a successful shopping day. The jacket is 3 sizes too big but that's exactly why I love it. What are you guys' fave pieces and why?
