All in the details.











(top Balenciaga (similar here), skirt Parker, belt Maje, flats Charles Phillip Shanghai, necklace/cuff Roman Luxe, heels Schutz, bag Zara, sunnies Prada)

A really important lesson I learned while in Europe is that flats are a must. I was very unprepared- hey in Los Angeles we drive everywhere I can wear 7 inch tall spikey Giuseppe Zanotti’s if I want to. Not in the rest of the world.
Thank you my friends at Charles Phillip Shanghai who came to my rescue! My favorite flats they are so comfortable now they always stay in my bag with me so I can switch out my heels after I get tired.
The leather skirt from Parker I love- flared and pleated skirts are a big trend for fall, as are big statement belts like my new favorite gold belt (seen before here.) The shirt is Balenciaga I found at a vintage store in LA in perfect condition with the tags still attached. Score! P.s. If you come to LA visit Wasteland- that’s where I got it.
I took these photos in San Diego over the weekend while attending a friends engagement party- made for a pretty background.

  30. You look amazing :) I’m from Paris and I’m always surprised that you always wear heels! I must say it’s true, in France women tend to wear more flats than heels! But both look so good on you ! :)

  31. Luba says:

    You are right Shea , here in Euorope you need flats ( I am not very tall and I love heels but I always carry a pair of ballerinas in my bag )
    Your outfit is gorgeous , I love every detail of it !

    Yep girl, Europe is disastrous if you try it with only high designer heels. I ruined quite a bit of Dolce and Gabana’s over here ;)
