My L.A. Uniform: Chucks and Braids

These Commes Des Garcons Converse Chuck Taylors were a total pain in the butt to order, but I'm happy to say they're now all mine (and just as cute as I had hoped!) Had to pretty much jump through hoops to get these sneakers, but so glad that I waited it out and finally got them, even after a few order mishaps with Nordstrom (we won't get into that... )! They're definitely the perfect shoe for Coachella - comfortable, and I adore the cute little heart on the side that is smile-inducing. Can't wait to wear them to death this summer! I love new shoes always, but there's nothing like a new pair of Chucks, is there?

Clearly not dressed up in this post, but this is pretty much my uniform for a day-to-day L.A. casual look. I have to wear flats or comfortable booties for those days I'm running around or going from one meeting to the next to happy hour. Flannel is always classic so I threw it over this silk sleeveless tunic tank as a layering option, which we always need in California! I find myself wearing jeans all the time lately and this pair is one of my favorites from Genetic. What's your favorite denim brand right now?

Can't forget to mention my hair! I've been living in braids. It's my absolute favorite way for my hair to look cute when I have zero time to style it! What do you think of of the french braid trend? I've literally created a whole Pinterest board about hair and fashion, LOL! I'm obsessed! You can check it out here- I always want to hear new ideas if you have some good ones for chic hair styles!

Candy Colored Dreams

Well first of all, Happy New Year everyone!!! I'm hoping that everyone had a safe and fun holiday season. I just got back from the East Coast for the past 3 weeks, and it feels amazing to be back in the California sunshine! Today's post is actually really part 2 of our last post, Ice Cream, stemming from my recent obsession with everything color. While generally in the winter we tend to gravitate to darker colors and of course black, I love doing the opposite for an unexpected vibrant splash. Of course, no look is complete without a colorful fur coat or sweater - I've been seeing them literally EVERYWHERE. I wore my favorite Zara booties for both looks- while I love color it's hard to ditch my favorite black booties du jour. Sometimes anchoring a colorful look with black accessories can provide great contrast. (I also did this in our Think Pink post). 

For today we have not one but TWO colored looks that Michele Andersen shot for me before we took off for the Holiday! So excited for 2015- we have lots more coming for you I can't wait to share. Shortly we will be launching a newly redesigned homepage, and next week we'll be back to black from NYC, stay tuned.

People are always asking me, "What do you do with all your clothes? Where do you put it all? How do you keep so much stuff?"

Well the answer to that is, I don't. Living in a small apartment with my boyfriend, dog, and cat is great and all, but there plain and simply is a huge lack of closet space. While I love my little family of 4, it is hardly a stylist's dream. I am constantly buying, selling, donating, and gifting things to friends when I can no longer wear them or keep them in my closet. While it's important to me to keep my favorite basics and essentials for styling shoots on hand, there are things that I must part with at the end of the day. This is where Tradesy comes in. It has basically saved my life. It gives me the opportunity to list my clothing, shoes, handbags, etc all in one online marketplace. This genius idea originally started with wedding dresses, something that can obviously only be worn once. Almost the same principal applies when running a fashion blog and being a wardrobe stylist; most of the time I can only use or wear things once or twice for shoots. When I can't use it anymore, Tradesy gives me just the place to resell them.

Did I mention I also buy things on Tradesy? It's the BEST to get deals on new or vintage handbags like this Chanel one I am currently coveting. As I'm not always blessed in the financial department, it's a great place to get deals on luxury items for a bargain. Running until the end of today they're having a huge Black Friday sale, so prices are even better than usual. They've also recently introduced payment plans so if you'd like to purchase an expensive handbag, for example, you can pay it off over 3 months instead of right away. I don't know about you all but that's making that Chanel bag a whole lot more obtainable. None of you would actually plan on me not shopping any more, would you?!?! Check out below some of the stuff I'll have available from my closet, and I'll keep updating it as well! Use this link to get $25 off your first order of $100 or more! Happy shopping! xo, The Style Sauce
