As much as I love a good club dress, I can't resist transforming it into a casual day time look. My inner grandma seems to take hold as 7:00 rolls in at night, so I've realized showing off what my originally be intended for a night out to Fluxx, can be altered into a grab some lunch with a girlfriend attire.

Here a few easy steps to roll chic from day to night and all with the help of The Cindy Knot over at The Stylist LA

Boom I move from inside fire escape to brick wall, and back to fire escape just to give you a wirl wind of LBD-ness. Inspired by the idea that not all little black dresses have to be for a night out to the club, I've thrown on Forever21 Booties, an ever so over worn beanie, vintage belt and a few necklaces for some layered blingage (thanks to the Mister Norton for his mad *click click* skills and for baring with Demi awkward as hell Marchese for this shoot). I've always been a fan of a black dress (apart from it famously being known for the flattering effect), but because it can be transformed from night to day with such ease. take off that beanie throw on a strappy sandal and pair with a clutch for that effortless night on the town look.

Every Tuesday I get the pleasure to share with the reader's of The Stylist LA 7 jams from our Studio Soundtrack and this week is one of my favorites that I'm telling must check out.

Rihanna's music video "Stay" featuring Mikky Ekko may have just put her over the top for me (in the best way possible.) I'm the repeat queen this week with that sweet sweet song, but when in need for a little "pick me up" Tiesto's mash up does it for me and I had to feature it. Head over to The StylistLA Blog and listen  to that plus a few other of my faves this week.

A peak inside city of sin... which to be honest didnt involve much sinning other than having five desserts each meal and emptying my bank account in Top Shop and Zara.

Vegas hosted MAGIC market show last week, where the retail industry comes together as one. As INC mag says, fashion week is in fact no longer the mecca for business owners in the fashion industry. It's noticeable that more business is actually done in these three days INC tells us. All the right components for buyers are accessible at their finger tips and as a result saves them week trips from country to country.

Enjoy a few phone shots from the show:)

Throw on the flip flops/hats for the sun and kick back for the weekend is exactly the mood I was put into upon indulging in a little beach fix for the afternoon. Aside from finding my future cliff diving spot,  soaking up that precious Vitamin D with a pretty little friend was a perfect relaxation break from sitting at a desk and studying all day. Moments like these are so important and when overwhelmed with school, work or any battles in our social lives, finding a spot to clear your mind and put life back into perspective appears to make everything seem at ease again. I'll admit I'll always be like a five year old at Disney Land when it comes to the beach. No matter what, I'm way the thrill of watching the waves crash and sun set behind the water is everlasting....and enough with the philosophical tangents about the ocean....

K now some fun stuff -- MAGIC Market Place in Las Vegas took place this week and Tuesday was filled with appointments and trend analyzing/forecasting and all that other fun stuff.  Popped by some, what are now some of my favorite brands, and met a few fabulous people. My social media friends TwitterFacebook and Instagram have done a little bit of recap, but coming up will be a trend report from our favorite, Steve Madden. Lets just say, boots galore and I'm way too obsessed.

Now we shall talk a trend -- THE POWER OF A BASIC. I'm a sucker for mixing crazy patterns, but for a casual friday channeling my inner 90's child it's accomplished with the help of as ASOS crop top. The minimalistic aspect to the tee makes way for layers on layers with them jewels (a Melrose Trading Post treasure for a whopping $10). Pair metals (be a wild one and mix silver and gold) but keep a relative distance between the two you're pairing or even stack them on top of each other. Looking for the serious 411 on stacking jewels? Join me on Pinterest and check out "My Style" featuring "Me and Lex" (2 girls with the ability to party like a rockstar via neck!)
