Fashion Watch

This weekend B and I went to Santa Monica for a little people watching, shopping and inspiration for the New Year. It's amazing how fashions are uniquely varied from place to place. Recently we have visited Las Vegas, Palm Desert, and now the Westside of LA. Certainly there was a fair share of skinny jeans and beautiful scarves on the hip and lovely of each town but at the same time each town had something about it that gave it it's own touch. I don't know about you but I know when I am in Vegas and what I can get away with as far as clothes versus being in LA. In Vegas I wear my sparkle and sequence and feel no shame! But I am a little more shy about sporting that same sparkle in the Land of Red. The fashion in Palm Desert seems elegant but understated and I love that essence.Although I love many different styles, I tend to gravitate towards what I refer to as resort chic. My vast collection of olive green and khaki clothes I think stems from a childhood in uniform at Marlborough School. I must confess, I liked having a uniform, and even though there was a sea of navy blue and khaki at my school, you could still see individual style.
B and I do not claim to be fashionistas but as you know we do part time work as supermodels (HA, HA on this blog that is..). Anyway, it was a quick afternoon trip to Santa Monica, and even though I grew up not too far from here, I am always re-energized from my visits.

Even though I love color I am a big fan of black, white, olive green and khaki. Thanks for sharing.

We have skinny jeans galore as well, but with hot pink and neon yellow... it is the tropics. Funny how things can be the same yet so different. I love your little outings!

I unfortunately don't think I would know fashion if it kicked me with it's Jimmy Choo's, I am glad I now know where to turn.

hi laura..its so nice to be back home and are you SO right about your observations. in iceland there seems to be a strict conformity rule of all black, but wow do they get high points for high fashion...its a feast for the eyes..and i feel so laid back casual (borderline shameful) there...but i must say waking up to my sunshiney, warm, friendly world of flips and summer clothes today was perfect for me!

I think I've been to Santa Monica. That's how long it's been since I've been to CA, I can't even remember if I've been there. I last went there in 96.
