Lemon Leopard

Jeans: J Brand. Bag: Chanel.
Shirt: TopShop (alternative here).
Jumper/Sweater: TopShop (get the look here & here).

This is one of those outfits that shouldn't work but does. Leopard, gold studs, plaid and yellow? Sounds horrendous but somehow doesn't look it.

I've said it before and I'll say it again: When it comes to animal prints and motifs... There is no such thing as "too much". 


Have yourself a merry little Christmas

Belt: Moschino.

These items are on my christmas list.  Although truth be told I just bought the Marant sneakers for myself. The blog title is 'Have YOURSELF a merry little Christmas' after all ;)

Those of you wanting those Marant sneakers in your closet be quick, they sell out fast! There are pairs still available here.

Boyfriend jeans for hanging out with The Boy :)

A few of you have asked about my 'Pigalle' shoes. I went for the 120mm heel height and I find that the sizing comes up a tiny bit too big. I still got my regular size and wear them with gel cushions.

Almost

Faux leather Skirt: Courtesy of Storets (alternative here).
Denim Jacket: Citizens Of Humanity.
Beanie Hat: American Apparel.
Shirt & Boots: Zara. 
Bag: Chanel.

It's almost cold enough in LA to get away with wearing a hat. I love an excuse to layer so I'm always happy when the temperature drops a bit.

If you still don't have a leather (or faux leather) skirt I strongly suggest you get one. Leather separates are a key component in my wardrobe. Shorts, skirts or trousers (pants)- they all work so well dressed up or down that I find myself reaching for mine often.

Sparkle

Dress: Phillip Lim.

I'm not usually ok with sequins head to toe but this dress gets away with it. I think it's the colour blocking that does it. It's perfect for holiday parties and easily made casual with boots and a leather jacket. Trust me, I've done it :)

Bomber

Jeans: J Brand. T. Shirt: James Perse.
'Ginta' Bomber Jacket: Courtesy of Three Floor.
Denim Shirt: TopShop. Bag: Vintage Chanel. 
Boots: Giuseppe Zanotti (Alternative here).

I'm so in love with this jacket that I'm wearing it inside as I type.... 





Magpie


Embellished boots: TopShop.

Ankle boots completely covered in embellishment? Yes please. My inner magpie can not resist. Get them here


Sundown

Skirt: TopShop. T.Shirt: StyleStalker. 
Leather Jacket: Balenciaga (alternative here).
Clutch: Alexander McQueen (get the look here).
Shoes: Nicholas Kirkwood.

This is one of the few jersey pencil skirts I've found that actually holds its shape through a full day's wear. Nothing worse then a misshaped pencil skirt!

Australia

Jean: TopShop. T.Shirt: LA Made.
Shoes: Joie. Bag: Chanel.
Leather Jacket: Balenciaga (get the look here & here)

A rare moment of down time here in Australia. I'm here to attend the Melbourne cup and promote Revenge :)



Denim All Over

Denim Dress: TopShop.
Ballet Flats: Chanel (get the look here).
Bag: Coach. Skull Ring: Bad Passion.

This dress is such an easy item to wear. It's sold out in the light denim but still good to go in the darker wash. I recommend going one size up for a relaxed slouchy fit.

Double Velvet

Jeans: American Apparel. Top: J Crew.
Velvet Shoes: TopShop. Bag: Chanel.
Sunglasses: Karen Walker.

These shoes are from last summer (seen here). Velvet wasn't that popular back then but it's certainly having a moment this season! I've been waiting to get my hands on this Chanel bag from the moment I first layed eyes on it. This picture of Miroslava Duma at Paris fashion week had me SALIVATING. She's wearing two. TWO! I die.


*FYI The Chanel velvet 'boy' comes in two sizes and several colours. I'm wearing the mini navy blue one.

Hear Me Roar...

Tiger Sweatshirt: Kenzo

Classic Kenzo and finally back in stock on kenzo.com but.... they only ship to Europe. I have mine winging it's way to me as I type. HEAR ME ROAR!!!!!!

This one from Juicy Couture is great too: 



Red Hot

Jeans: American Apparel. 
Vest: ASOS mens (borrowed from The Boy!)
'Becket' Sneakers: Isabel Marant (get the look here).

It's impossible to wear white and not get dirty. I just go with it. Sometimes I like dirty whites even more then I like clean ones.Especially in a boyish look like the one above. 

P.S Summer has returned to LA. Ugh. 





Instagram

Instagram roundup. Follow me on Instagram: smashleybell.

Texture

Skirt: American Apparel (get the look here & here).
Shirt: TopShop. Boots: Zara. 
Earrings: ASOS.

The weather has finally started to cool off. It never really gets that cold in LA so the main difference between my summer and winter wardrobe is texture. When the weather turns crisp I like to reach for leather and suede. 

My love for big earrings seems to be going nowhere fast. The pair I'm wearing here are literally 'door knockers'. These are from ASOS and they're very 90's. Which is a good thing.... obviously :)






Not Nautical

Shorts: Finders Keepers (in black here). Top: H&M.
Bag: Mulberry (get the look here & here).
Shoes: Prada.

A simple stripe t.shirt is such a classic staple. I've had this one for forever and I'm yet to find one I like more.
