EL-AY

The City of Angels is urban sprawl at its finest. Edgy and full of glam & glitz, Los Angeles is foodie and fashion heaven; not to mention a celebrity oasis! Everything about LA has style, even the unintended… You walk into a coffee shop, and it is a scene. A boutique? Polished. A local dive bar? Sure! But with that special hipster je ne sais quois! Truly, LA is made of design, decor and flair that is good to the last drop… It’s oozing off the streets and even the attitude and personality of the city exudes this exuberant and vivacious way of life. Maybe it’s the warm and sunny weather that contributes to the high energy and vibrancy– no matter what it is, LA is always on point!

On a recent trip down I spent most of my time in Venice Beach, Abbot Kinney; as well as a few cameo appearances in Santa Monica, Downtown & Silverlake . I took a few pictures of some cool looking spots, images that epitomize the LA esthetic… Here is a gallery of these snapshots, enjoy, xoxo SC

Bold Adornments

A photo gallery of some bold, bright, beautiful adornments… For me, good accessories can make or break an outfit. Additionally, excellent fashion ornamentation can take a simple look, add flair with various jewels and embellishments, and amp up the appeal. Here are a few that I am currently rocking!! xxoo, SC

This  lovely boutique in Larkspur at the Marin Country Mart is luxurious! The opulent decor includes soft fur rugs, glistening chandeliers and pops of luscious textures and colors found in everything from the seating, pillows, throws to the clothes, accessories and handbags…

The price point at this resort-wear and contemporary fashion boutique make it a delightful place to stop by and gather vision for future outfit ideas… And I’m sure that once in a Blue Moon a splurge will ensue! A beautiful store with a classic and colorful esthetic, Calypso St. Barth features artists and designers from around the world, thus providing an exclusive venue in which their craft can be showcased and admired.

Jewels

These are the Jewels I am wearing these days… Eclectic and fun, all the while maintaining a general theme. This applies to clothing as well. When I style myself, or anyone else, I like to create a thread, or story, to illustrate what is being worn. I also like to feel held by the power of the images I wear, and so I choose clothes and adornments  that are like a mantra, or daily reminder of what I envision for myself and the world! To surround yourself with positive images, words, and energies is to create a better space for yourself to feel more happy & free.

In this picture a few pieces from my all time favorite designer, Voce Keen, are on display. The Labradorite Pendant is worn for its harmonizing and healing powers while also having properties that help stimulate the imagination and improve memory. Being that I am an Aquarius, I also like that this stone is linked to the Water Bearing Star Sign. Voce Keen Eagle Talon earrings and Crystal FingerWand are also pieces on display that hold meaning and a special symbolism. With Eagle possessing a regal quality and power, I admire this beautiful bird of prey which symbolizes creation, healing, and the illumination of spirit. The Crystal FW is worn for clarity in thought and action.

Additionally, few new jewels by Chibi. I recently discovered this brand at a local boutique and fell in love. The Gold Crescent Moon Pendant and Gold Starburst Midi Ring are beautiful images that remind me daily to appreciate the yin (female) energies of the moon and to never forget that I too was once a bright, sparkling starburst in this expansive universe in which we are all blessed to live!

Fiat Lux SF is a darling little jewelry store on Church Street. They have some in-house specialties, of which I am a proud owner of two delicately made rings! One is their Lover’s Knot in a textured, hammered silver; a midi ring meant to be worn on the upper portion of the finger. My second beautiful bauble is the Hematite Pyramid with a lovely sterling silver setting. The triangle/pyramid shape is reflective of stability and a strong foundation with equanimity in support, while the hematite stone promotes regenerative powers.

Lastly, my Gold Triangle Bead Bracelets are by Free People. I love the chevron shaped beads and find the colorful wristlets add an edgy glamour. The Lapis Lazuli bracelet is adorned with a gorgeous amulet in Coral and Lapis stones that unites the seed bead strands together. This piece was a gift from my Mother and it is a handmade piece of art. Lapis increases our intuition and facilitates a clear understanding of reality. It is also associated with the throat chakra, thus strengthening the neck and vocal chords, elements essential in the practice of lucid communication.

Hope you have fun hunting new accessories for your up and coming stellar outfits! And maybe add a piece or two to the ensamble that has significance to YOU. Let it reflect you and the world you want to inhabit!

Lots of love, Stoner Chíc  x

Outfit In Action

Not long ago I posted on some Summer/Fall Bootie Cuties… I featured a few outfits that were fun and effortless during this transitional time of the year. Looks that could go easily from day to night by just tossing a sweater and jacket on… Here is a look that I recently wore. By day, I was comfortable, casual and chic in a gorgeous Free People tank top with delicate floral print and a beautiful cut-out back; Joe’s Jeans in a flattering cut that were ankle length, perfect for pairing with Dolce Vita booties in a grey/green suede. Once the temp dropped, I threw on a John Galt by Brandy Melville sweater and a scarf! SummerFall time perfection! xxxooo, SC

Here it is… Accessorized and ready for play! This outfit was cute and chic… I got creative with the jewelry accents and had fun wearing this ensamble, I felt flirty and fun! I also got many compliments on various elements from head to toe!! xx

Recent Acquisition…

I’ve been a bad, bad girl. I mean naughty!! Walking around the Marin Country Mart the other day, after a yoga class, I stumbled upon Benjamin Eyewear. This is an LA based sunglass designer who creates custom frames emulated and inspired by various fashion icons. Additionally, he cherry picks a few current and vintage frames. In a small store front with kind service, it was a treat to be able to try on any pair I desired… Heaven! Finally, after going back and forth between a few different pairs of shades, I settled for a classic, cat-eyed frame by Chloe.  I’m obsessed with the mauve tinted lenses and the wine colored frames, great for these final Summer days and perfect for accompanying any look well into the Fall. Take a peek by clicking on the image to open up the gallery! Hopefully you’ll love them as much as I do!

Trendy Fashion App!

I recently discovered TRENDABL— an online sharing community for fashion! It’s similar to Instagram in concept. You start by taking a picture, you add a filter and then you can describe the items; from the outfit you captured to a handbag you’re coveting or jewelry you obsess over… It’s fun, easy, and creative… plus it’s great fashion inspiration!!

Aside from the great editorial pictures that are captured when using this app, you can also input data particular to the image you shared; such as brand names, stores, colors and pricing. The app allows for you to create a fun community where fashion is the main topic! It’s easy to take beautiful pictures and exciting to share them with others everywhere! If you have an iPhone I highly recommend you give this app a try….
