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 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 roundup. Follow me on Instagram: smashleybell.


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. 

Animal Magic

Cashmere 'Owl' Jumper: Burberry Prorsum.

I adore this Burberry jumper ('sweater' to the Americans) and animal motifs are set to be huge for fall. I've hunted down some more budget friendly options...

Despite the 90ยบ weather in Los Angeles the tiger jumper is already hanging in my closet.
