a few days ago i went to a fashion mixer in silverlake with a bunch of funky LA based designers. lots of drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and shopping. can’t get better than that. i wore the outfit below, minus the necklace until i got there and bought it and immediately put it on. although all black, i’m wearing mesh, velvet, faux snakeskin, and leather, i love mixing fun prints and textures. for those that don’t know silverlake is a cool, artsy, hipster part of LA, lots of vintage stores, small funky boutiques etc. malo in one of the pictures below is an amazing mexican restaurant with the best (aka health wise worst) chips in the world. the photo above is other jewelry by the new designer of the necklace i bought. everything has cool vintage crinkled leather pieces hanging from it. i loved it. her name is alissa gallo. the necklace i bought also doubles as a headpiece and triples as a belt. so cute.
