Here’s my current obsession, my all-black Venice look. It’s a really easy look to get, and I’m gonna show you how!
First, I styled my black wildfox lost sweater with a pair of lace up lip service velvet shorts from dolls kill. I matched this with my current shoe obsession (I can’t stop wearing them) my Shakuhachi Neoprene Knee High boots! These boots are the best, I’m swearing by them. The heel is so so tiny, which makes them extremely comfortable for wandering around LA in.
To finish the look, I threw on my black cowboy-esque hat, which I purchased from Nasty Gal. And of course, I added my Wildfox Couture aviators, these babies are the bomb, and perfect for reflecting photos!
That’s it, just a few simple all-black pieces to make a really great Venice day look. These photos were taken on Abbot Kinney, my absolute new favorite spot in California. I love this street, it’s filled with great restaurants, bars and shops. And the best part about it? It leads right down to the beach. I spent my time biking around it in the morning and then to the beach once I finished blog work at the outdoor coffee shops. I’m really missing LA hard this week, thinking of getting a place there.

Under the sea. Darling, it’s better, down where it’s wetter, take it from me.
I’ll swim up to his castle, then flounder will splash around to get his attention…
The seaweed is always greener in somebody else’s lake. You dream about going up there, but that is a big mistake. Just look at the world around you, right here on the ocean floor. Such wonderful things around you, what more are you lookin’ for?
Up on the shore they work all day, out in the sun they slave away. While we devotin’ full time to floatin’, under the sea.
Comin’ up for air, I’ve been under this sea forever. Darling, it’s gotten better even since we’ve been together.

She’s really a mermaid. She moves in the magic of her waves. Long golden locks, lightened by the sun. Summer skin highlighted by light kisses, freckles. Life in the water is better than anything they have downtown. Down here, all the fish are happy. She swims from side to side, followed by her blonde hair. She dances under the light reflections on the water. Everything glistens, everything is magic. She is surrounded by creatures of the sea. She collects shells and uses them to comb her hair. Beach waves. She has starfish on her vanity. Jellyfish give purple and blue kisses, and fish swim through her shoe closet. She dresses in sheer pastels and seashell bras. She is magic in her kingdom. She is love and she is light.
