It was a cool, overcast, grey kinda day today (perfect for a chill indoor activity) so my love and I decided to partake in some art. We live near downtown Los Angeles so the MOCA is always a good nearby option for us, and across the street is the Broad – both amazing contemporary art museums to visit when you are in the LA area. There were a few new exhibits as of March, including a new favorite painter/artist of mine – Kerry James Marshall. His exhibition is entitled “Mastry”. His work is both beautiful, colorful, articulate and powerful! I could def see his work hanging on the walls of our home. My fiance and I loved this entire exhibition. Please check it out if and when you’re in town. You won’t be disappointed 😉

Skirt:  Comme des Garcons

I found this amazing skirt at a designer resale & vintage store in LA called Wasteland. I always find amazing designer pieces here for a fraction of the price.

Top: Topshop

Bottom: Vintage Levi’s Jeans

Finding the right pair of jeans with the perfect fit is a constant struggle… so I’m always on the hunt! I found my first favorite pair at a vintage store on Melrose Ave. They were a button fly, in a light wash (like the ones pictured here), with a slight bell leg and perfectly distressed and positioned holes in the knees. When I tried them on they were soft already and they fit to perfection, which never happens! Best part is they were $20!!! The pair I’m wearing in this post, I found in an Urban Outfitters. They don’t fit as perfect as my ‘faves’ but they are a tid bit more of a relaxed fit which I like a lot and was missing in my wardrobe. I also adore the distressing of the hem and the length.

Shoes: Fenty by Puma

These boots are the perfect combination of sexy/sporty/chic. If you’re a tomboy who still likes to strut ’round town occasionally in a stiletto, then these are a must have! These boots are reminiscent of the stiletto ‘Timberlands’ by Manolo Blahnik, made famous by Beyonce in her ’03 Bonnie & Clyde music video, feat. Jay-Z. I had a pair of those too – Ha! Lol! The soft leather and high quality hardware are top notch for a heel by Puma – thanks Rihanna 😉 – which warrants the high price tag. One of my favorite parts of this shoe is the circular barbell piercing on the zipper – so bad ass! I love pairing these with day dresses paired with funky feminine socks (ie. Rihanna’s socks for Stance). I would also recommend wearing these with a basic or graphic tee, ‘boyfriend’ jeans, and a fitted leather biker jacket in black or a bright/uncommon color.

Handbag: StatementsStudio – Prism Gloss Backpack

If you’re at all familiar with Issey Miyake then you will recall this unique prism style paneling and  you love just as much as I do. Issey Miyake handbags are quite expensive… but have no fear!
