Wardrobe Wednesdays: Olivia Munn in Vancouver

Olivia Munn fashion in Vancouver

When it comes to laid back fall fashion, I think Olivia Munn is our girl.

The actress was seen walking her two adorable doggies in Vancouver a few days ago in the coziest looking tweed trench. She paired the look with a cute Batman crop top, Vans, and high waisted jeans.

I love the combination of patterns Olivia Munn mixes with the tweed and printed Vans. It gives the look an interesting depth without taking away from the relaxed nature of it.

See below for the original Vans (marked with *) and some other pieces inspired by the look!

Gallery Mondays: “Jeweled Toad”

If you’ve seen my accessories collection, you’d know that I LOVE owls. I have an owl ring, several owl necklaces, an owl phone case…

The owl obsession is real.

So you can imagine back in fall 2015 while I was visiting the Getty Museum in Los Angeles how excited I got when I saw this adorable owl, part of the In Focus: Animalia exhibit.

A dye imbibition print, called “Jeweled Toad” is by Los Angeles based artist Hiro. The toad brooch was created by David Webb. I wasn’t able to take a photo of the original piece because there was no photography allowed in that particular exhibit, so the above photo is of promo poster outside of the hall. I have my ways.

Is it just me, or is this owl extra fluffy?! I just wanna reach out and ruffle its feathers!

I’d buy that toad brooch in a heartbeat (if it were affordable, and I doubt it is lol).

I just hope that brooch isn’t attached to the owl. That would be cruel.

Fan Art Fridays: Karla Souza

Continuing on with Hispanic celebs for National Hispanic Heritage Month, I decided to feature Mexican-American actress Karla Souza as Laurel Castillo on ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder for this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

Season 4 of the series premiered on Thursday night, and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to get though this season without having a series of small heart attacks.

Found on Tumblr, this piece of fan art by Laura Nickelle (Crowns of Reinvention) features a quote from the 8th episode of season 2, titled “Hi, I’m Philip” where Laurel is accused of being an entitled “MAP” (Mexican-American Princess).

“So I’m a princess just because I dared to disagree with you?” she snaps back, which is written on the fan art edit in clouds of gray and pink splatter.

Do you have a favorite Laurel Castillo quote? Let me know in the comments!

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Meghan Markle @ 2017 Invictus Games

Meghan Markle fashion 2017 Invictus Games opening ceremony

Looks like Meghan Markle isn’t only super stylish on screen as Rachel Zane in USA’s Suits.

The actress made her first appearance with boyfriend Prince Harry in Toronto on Saturday during the 2017 Invictus Games opening ceremony wearing head-to-toe burgundy.

She paired a pleated chiffon dress with a leather jacket and a suede clutch bag, all in a similar shade of burgundy. It’s so reminiscent of Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year Marsala.

I would be so afraid to wear one color throughout, but Meghan Markle is definitely working this!

The original dress is sold out (no surprise there), but see below for the original jacket, marked by *, and some similar items to copy this look.

Jacket:

1. Wilson’s Leather, $269.99

2. Shoes.com, $690.00 *

Gallery Mondays: “Crazy From the Heat #2” by Beau LaBute

beau labute crazy from the heat

Happy National Comic Book Day!

I really wanted to feature comic book art in honor of National Comic Book Day today, but then I realized I don’t have any in my camera roll.

So, the closest piece of art I could dig up that looked similar to comic book art is this ink on paper drawing by Canadian artist Beau LaBute. I saw it almost 2 years ago at Printed Matter in Chelsea, New York City.

Boy, is it difficult to find anything about this piece, “Crazy from the Heat #2” on the internet! I’m still amazed that I was able to find anything on the artist!

There’s a lot going on in this ink on paper drawing, but two things stand out to me the most. The first is the man, cat, sheep combination going on in the top right corner of the piece. The second is actually more than one thing located in the top left section of the square sitting in the middle portion of the piece.

Yes, I’m talking about the four wine bottles. Does that make me a wino?

Although I couldn’t find much online about this piece, I did notice that LaBute created some similar artwork with artist Peter Thompson, as seen here, here, here, and here.

I wonder what “Crazy From the Heat #1” looks like, if it exists.

 

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Victoria Justice @ Rebecca Minkoff NYFW 2017 Show

Victoria Justice Rebecca Minkoff NYFW 2017

Let’s throw this back to NYFW almost two weeks ago, because I totally forgot about this killer floral number Victoria Justice wore to Rebecca Minkoff’s show on September 9, 2017.

The actress was head to two Rebecca Minkoff with a pair of chunky suede sandals and a long sleeve floral mini dress. I love outfits like this for weird summer to fall transition weather. It’s basically fall on top with the long sleeves and summer on the bottom with sandals!

I also really love this dark color scheme for fall, as it isn’t the traditional brown or orange theme. The blue and purple against the black dress are very easy on the eyes.

See below for the original dress and sandals (marked with *) as well as alternatives to steal this look.

Dress:

Left – Rebecca Minkoff, $228.00 *

Right – LuLu’s, $43.00

Sandals:

Top – Rebecca Minkoff, $131.00 *

Bottom – Stuart Weitzman, $455.00
