Baby You Can Ring My Bell

 Ok, ok sometimes I get hooked on a trend- (Please refer to my love for 'off-the shoulder'- here, here and here). Lately, I have attempted to weed out fast fashion from my wardrobe and invest in classic pieces. But sometimes the fashion crowd cannot ignore a sillouhette or shape of a garment. A trend can elevates a look, giving it that added drama which sometimes is missing in 'ready to wear'. I give you, the bell-sleeve. A trend that is back for 2016, and will continue to come back years later. A girl cannot deny the flirty power of the bell-sleeve. This statement sleeve has full volume and gives a non-traditional flair to the LBD. My dress is by For Love & Lemons which is the master for creating ethereal and dreamy looks for the twenty-something gal. The detailed embroidered creates a sexy-peek of skin that is subtle and feminine. I paired this look with a chunky boot to balance out the overside proposition of the sleeve. Let's see if this trend sticks for me, but right now I am fully inspired by this dramatic look. 
As I continue to work on East West Edge, I am going to start sharing some of my go-to places in my area of LA. During the last four and a half years, I have curated my all-time favorites in Echo Park, Silverlake, Los Feliz, and DTLA. I want to share the beauty I see in this city, and the little gems of places that keep inspiring me. So keep an eye out for my favorite restaurants, stores + views as I grow this little blog of mine. Especially for my out-of-town followers, I want to erase the plastic/perfect/celebrity myth of Los Angeles.
