Sorry for the MIA

Sorry guys for the lack of updates. Barcelona was more 
busy then expected, school was intense, as well as life. 
What an amazing summer city: beautiful architecture, 
art, beaches, night life, bars... need I say more? I was 
wrapped up in it all, and school sucked me into art over
fashion. The one thing I can say is I was not impressed 
with the street style. A lot of parachute pants, and harem 
pants with hem lines that hung too low. The people are 
incredible, I just wasn't floored with their style... 

This all being said, I am back, and working on 
upcoming posts. Going to jump right into Fall, 
because if your like me, monochromatic, monotone, 
and a layering lover then summer isn't really your 
thing. I am ready to pull out my leather, fur, boots 
oh my...

But here is a summer favorite of mine, A floral Kimono 
my mom picked up for me at Urban

And  a pair of awesome old man style loafers I picked up 
at a vintage store in Barcelona's Raval district... their 
vintage stores were very up to par, if my wallet aloud, I 
would have done more damage.

Back to the new posts, up soon.

Maxi Motto

wut is it? My favorite trend this summer, maxi skirts 
and dresses. They are the perfect excuse to not to shave 
your legs every other day this summer, and being 
bi-coastal, when I am in New York, there is no way I 
am suffering in a pair of jeans in that humidity. 

Living in comfort is always the way to go...that is my 
maxi motto. 

Riller & Fount makes those perfect jersey dresses you 
can dress up or down. I have lived in mine since I got 
them. I think I have styled them every which way; 
belted with jackets, a t-shirt over them with combat 
boots,  a sweater over them for the chillier nights in 
LA.... the possibilities are endless. 

Some options...

… no words

This was why I started my blog, to touch and inspire
people, and be touched in return

I signed onto Facebook and got this incredibly moving
message from a girl I went to high school with...

 Hey sasha,
 I don't know if you remember me but I sort of knew you
back in BHHS. I know we don't talk lol but I am sort of
stuck in a pickle and I was hoping that you could give
me some suggestions. I have to shave my hair off for a
tumor removal and I CANNOT PULL OF A SHAVED
HAIR LOOK. I am more of like jcrew classic kind. and I
don't know what to do. I have always admired your  
fashionable sense and I was hoping that you could give
me some advice if you can? sorry for sending you a
message so randomly. But I really could use all the help
that I could get. Thanks! I love your blog! btw .

I definitely remember her, and good news, she only has to
shave part of her hair to remove a benign tumor. I did
some research and Alice Dellal proves this look can work
with anything, even though she has a punk, grunge  
aesthetic, she validates confidence can make it work.




And of course bad ass

This look can work with any hair type, or color. And it's
a perfect excuse to rock head raps...

and bright, fun lipstick.

I don't think the partial shaved head should fall under
the  edgy or grunge/punk category. Life happens, and some
people have to shave their heads to prolong it. So be it,
this hair style works with anyone, because it says "I have
survived, and I am beautiful for that."... even if you are
the person who does it to make a statement, like Alice. 

Confidence is key, and hair is just a material attribute
to beauty, it grows back, and the person is what should
make up their radiance, not the mop on their head.  

Nat proves hair is minuscule to a persons beauty...

Even without makeup.
