what to wear in ...the city of angels

Hey there, friends! Guess who is in LA as we speak?! I'm here for a few conferences- the Latina Lifestyle Blogger Conference, and Lucky FABB! I'm so excited to learn everything and anything blog related, meet some fabulous ladies and score some major inspiration. And as always (in my world) there is the fashion, some might even venture to say- that's what it's really all about! So I put together a few designer clothing "first impression" looks -that I'm majorly coveting on Farfetch - that I would scoop up in a second, if my budget allowed, and rock in LA this weekend ;). Farfetch is my newest shop crush- it's a huge online marketplace for independent fashion boutiques globally, and you can shop them all in one place-- super easy right?! 

For a day full of seminars and presentations bring the polish and pretty in this put-together yet eclectic mix! I loved the Proenza Schouler pants, and pretty much centered my look around them. I kept the top on the simpler side, since the pants were so loud, but jazzed up in the color department with the heels and a well manicured mani with Pams and Kin polish, in Manic Monday!

{Pams and Kin Safety Dance, 3.1 Philip Lim studded dress, Sveva Collection necklace, Valentino heels, Alexander McQueen clutch}

Alright, now this is when you bring it- ok so maybe you bring it always, especially at these kinds of events- but cocktail hour is when you can really bring it on! Don't do a typical LBD unless you can sass it up so much people are looking at your accessories rather than your outfit. So, I would suggest- a bright pink frock! You will stand out from the crowd, and this Philip Lim has it's own built in jewelry neckline, so you can accessorize as you like, but my suggestion is--layering it up--per usual, so on the necklace goes! Add these beautiful Valentino Bow pumps...drool....the fierce McQueen clutch, again some bright nails by Pams and Kin, and voilĂ , all eyes on you, baby!

Wish me luck, I'll keep you posted on how it goes, and what I wear, on instagram (@allergictovanilla), and twitter (@alergic2vanilla)! P.s If your looking for a great place to stay during all the conferences check out the fabulous Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills, that's where you'll find me!
