EARTH DAY

Tree huggers unite! Today we celebrate our mother earth. Here are a few of my favorite earth-loving products to get you in the spirit.

  1. (From top left) Amour Vert sells terrific, soft basics made from organic materials. Plus they sell a tree for every t-shirt sold. Do your part and get this adorably french striped number. 2. I’m dying to get a jar of Monastery Attar Repair Concentrate. Their products are made from whole, natural ingredients and in spirit of Earth Day, everything is 20% off! 3. Whenever I do a major closet cleanse, I bring my castoffs to Urbanity. The staff feels like family and their racks are full of the best of the best new and used styles. 4. It just wouldn’t be a weekend without a trip to Lush. I can hardly get through the week without a bath with my favorite Yoga Bath Bomb.

PJA + Urbanity vol. 2

I had a blast playing dress up with Urbanity, so I went back for another shoot! Jessie Marie and I were practically in shock when we discovered these Chanel heels fit me! Given this opportunity, I thought it might be fun to try a Parisian look.PJA U ChanelM2 11-11-13 PJA U ChanelL 11-11-13

This cropped Miu Miu sweater is absolutely adorable! Not to mention very tiny! I’m glad it had enough stretch to it. To achieve that “I’m just going for a romantic stroll along the Champs Elysees” look,  I paired it with this shimmering Erica Tanov skirt. Très chic!PJA U ChanelL6 11-11-13 PJA U ChanelD 11-11-13

And now, for a shoe close up! Amazing, non? I’m estimating they’re from the late 1980’s or the early 1990’s. The supple leather with that pop of printed satin makes for a simply superb shoe!PJA U ChanelS 11-11-13And yes, you can find all of these treasures at Urbanity! Be sure to scope out their online store and keep your peepers peeled for future PJA + Urbanity collaborations!

PJA + Urbanity vol. 1

Last Monday, I got a lady like makeover at my favorite, East Bay consignment shop Urbanity! Jessie Marie helped me find the perfect, winter date outfit and snapped me sashaying on Solano Avenue. 20131115-233103.jpg

This dress made me feel like such a girly girl! I don’t have a ton of black and white in my closet, but after seeing it pair so nicely with this plaid coat I can definitely see myself wearing the combo more often. 20131115-233126.jpg

Neon makeup worked its way into my daily beauty routine. Highlighter yellow nail polish and bright fuchsia lips can really punch up your ready-for-winter look! 20131115-233203.jpg20131115-233216.jpg

I can’t really remember the last time a wore a pair of heels. I think I was very disappointed because they hurt like hell and left me with the worst blisters. These shoes, however, were surprisingly comfortable and what a steal! Brand new for forty five buckeroos? This might be the trick to get me back on a heel kick!

Coat: Aoxuek J $65, Dress: Eva Franco $88, Shoes: Guess $45 all found on the racks at Urbanity!

Thank you Urbanity for showing this girly girl a great time! Can’t wait for our next styling session! In the mood for a treasure hunt? Go pop in for a visit or check out their brand new online store!

Salt and Sea Urchins

On Monday, the other Jessie and I explored the Sutro Baths. It was quite fun climbing around in these ruins with the ocean roaring in the background. Such a perfect, foggy day for a little OOTD post!IMG_8864

I love this dress. No, I love, love, LOVE this dress. I found it on a rare trip inside a Forever 21 (I usually shop online. The bright lights and obnoxious music make me feel like I’m gonna have a seizure). I was looking for the “great white whale” of F21: an all cotton dress; something I can wear all year round. When I saw this, I did a double take. Not only is it 100% cotton, it’s gingham AND it has pockets! I had to restrain myself from buying it right then and there. I’m glad I had practiced patience. It went on sale a few months later. Good things come to those who wait!

I bought these socks on a whim a couple of years ago at a little boutique in the Haight. It’s funny how something you buy “just because” turns into something you wear on a regular basis. IMG_8930 Of course I’m wearing my arrow bracelet. I’m hardly ever without it. The other day I re-discovered this cute little bow bracelet from JewelMint that I was obsessed with for a hot minuet. It’s pretty stinking cute, even with the brass showing through. IMG_8955IMG_8967I got this Burning Torch jacket when I was still working for my most favorite consignment shop in the whole wide world, Urbanity. It was a little pricey at the time, but It’s become one of my wardrobe staple. Everybody needs a military style piece in their closet! This one has a little dash of sweetness to it and I love the big pocket on the back. IMG_8981IMG_9006 Those of you who are VERY detail oriented might have noticed that I chopped my mop! It’s a bit more maintenance than I’m used to (I hadn’t used a blowdryer for years), but I love it! For those of you looking for a hairdresser in the city, book my girl Meghan! She’s an all around amazing gal and a fantastic stylist to boot!IMG_9037Jess and I loved shooting with this graffiti wall! This is about as grunge as I’m ever going to get. I like how the wall seemed to give my overall look a little more edge.IMG_9044

This pose is just so Elvis. Thank you! Thank you very much!
