I had the pleasure of attending a little soiree at a fabulous clothing boutique in Santa Monica a few weeks ago to launch their new Denim Bar. Hail Mary Venice is owned by the coolest couple (the husband is a fellow Canadian and denim designer) Marie his lovely wife runs the shop and is known the “jeans genius” She does private fittings & personal styling in store and she did a brilliant job of lining up these AG jeans for me that fit me like a glove. I always thought AG was geared toward the extremely tall girl but was pleasantly surprised to find all the AG Jeans at Hail Mary fit me perfectly, I’ll definitely be going back for more! The shop is also full of cool accessories, vintage inspired T-shirts (my personal fave here) and a unique selection of ankle boots. If you find yourself strolling down Main St in Santa Monica I highly recommend popping in to this well curated boutique for all things on trend as well as an amazing selection of great fitting denim!
It’s Monday again, but its also the start of a short week! Anyone have any cool Thanksgiving plans? We’re heading to Arizona for a few days and we can’t wait to just get out of town and turn off for a few days! Thanks for dropping by, xo Zia
We all know that French Girls have the best style, so when I was asked by Maison Jules to pay homage to the great city of Paris by finding little “pieces of Paris” in my hometown I immediately accepted the challenge! I refer to it as a “challenge” because Los Angeles couldn’t be any more different than the City of Lights in terms of geographic layout and lifestyle. To me life in Paris is about grabbing a café au lait or fresh roasted chestnuts wrapped in newspaper and walking along the Seine and pehaps popping into an art gallery or boutique. I am fortunate to be one of the few in LA that can walk to most amenities and don’t spend too much time in the car. This little section of the LA river has a very Euro feel to it and its right by the train station, reminding me a little of France! The vintage shopping in Paris is always epic, this coat definitely has a vintage feel to it as do many of the items in the Maison Jules fall collection…it has me dreaming of fresh baguettes and red wine, thank goodness it’s Friday! Have a great weekend mes cheres, xx Zia
ps this post has a whole different meaning after the tragic events in Paris one week ago, my heart breaks for this beautiful city and the citizens who were lost! #prayforparis
FARFETCH asked a bunch of bloggers, including myself, to create a Dream Holiday Outfit Wish Board. There were so many amazing pieces on their site that I would wear in a hearbeat that I couldn’t stop at one! I picked a bunch of separates (and one dazzling dress) that can be mixed and matched to get anyone through the holiday season in fierce style!
Well I hope you noticed that Hunter Collector got a mini face lift today with her new banner! I’m celebrating my changes with an armful of bangles from Alex and Ani that symbolize good fortune, prosperity and power which is what I am envisioning and putting out into the universe for my future! I have always loved Alex & Ani’s delicate jewelry particularly as a gift for girlfriends because you can give them something that is very personalized whether its a symbol that’s meaningful to them or a birthstone. My merlot colored baubles are a perfect addition for this boho inspired dress and denim jacket ensemble.
After dealing with a tough week of injuries and illnesses among the humans in our family, yesterday I was at the vet for several hours with Stella (our Boston Terrier). Stella seems to have snorted something foreign impeding her breathing, also our fish aquarium was infected with a disease and we lost our Cory Catfish aptly named Kitty this morning. A little sadness in our world, but taking a cue from my Acorn adorned bracelet we will power through these tough times as well as this Hump Day! Thanks for stopping by! xoxo Zia
The winds of change certainly came blowing through LA this weekend and it really got quite cold. The need for boots, beanies and layers are now real and not just in the name of fashion. I love this light turtleneck top I picked up at the grand opening of Uniqlo at the Del Amo mall last month. It’s the perfect alternative to a basic t-shirt and a fantastic layering piece, I think I’ll have to go back for more colors! This weekend definitely started out on a sad and tragic note, I hope you all spent it with the people you love! Every day we wake up healthy and well is a happy day even Mondays, xoxox Zia
