old cropped leather moto jacket | Riki striped crop top | American Apparel lace bodysuit | LF/Millau jodhpurs | Michael Kors t-strap platforms | Herringbone Apothecary earrings (put all chains on old earring to make UNO) | Betsey Johnson ruffle sunnies | the usual random bracelets  & rings

I'm pretty sure I'm obsessed with these jodhpurs. I've been on the hunt for them forever and finally, after going to LF, I found the perfect pair. I love the detailing, the pleats on hip, the accordion pleats on the band, and the way it contoured around my waist. I've also been obsessing over fuchsia-y red lipstick and finally found the perfect shade. I'm pretty much in love except for the fact that I'm literally an infant putting on "fancy makeup".

Since I no longer have a "photographer", Jennie has been gracious enough to be my photographer, and lucky for me, she's got a killer camera. We went down to this awesome industrial park where it really helped contrast my black ensemble. It was amazing too, with the sun hitting in the perfect spot.

7x7 is having a new event in the city called Happier Hour and to kick off this series, we were the 'guests of honor' so to speak. It was held at the Infusion Lounge in downtown San Francisco. The venue was amazing, the food & drinks were fantastic, and two amazingly stylish people won the contest judged by us to be featured in the magazine. :)

My outfit was thrown together in 5 minutes due to a very eventful morning full of running around to thrift & consignment shops trying to find the perfect dress, discovering that my credit card was stolen and they blocked me from using it, going to the bank to fix the dilemma, then finding out I couldn't get a card, and ending with me going home, running into my closet and pulled out this. It was easy-peasy I tell ya. I work so much better under pressure than I do when I've got many hours to put something together. I was obsessed with this look because I love tutus, tulle and anything fem that could add to my ultra dark and rock & roll tone that I always seem to acquire...even when it's Spring. Those shoes are pretty much obsessive except for the fact that I just got them, wore them out today, and the entire shoe came off the heel....needless to say, I'm a little upset. Brand new shoes people!

Not only was the event a success but I'm dying for the next one, hopefully next month. Cross your fingers SF because we definitely need a scene here. I had so much fun mingling with the stylish people of the bay area. Dancing and drinking with them topped the night off.

A while back, I was asked by 7x7 to be featured in their March Fashion Issue. I was more than ecstatic and found out that JT, from SF Style, was going to be the one shooting us bloggers & entrepreneurs. We shot down at the Embarcadero at night, which was gorgeous by the way. I'm sad though, that they didn't use the photos of me wearing my ggmomma's fox fur coat. Hopefully, I'll get to show you those photos soon.

If you've never heard of 7x7, it's a San Francisco Bay Area magazine; name branching from the fact that San Francisco is 7 miles across, 7 miles wide. :) Check out the article here!

In celebration of being featured, I decided we must all get together to toast to such an event. I arranged our dinner at Americano, located in one of the Embarcadero's hotel, Hotel Vitale. It was great to see everyone and enjoy great company.
