This dress went from long sleeves to short sleeves – which do you prefer?
I always love a colorful in-your-face print on clothing. This ASOS artwork dress I bought while in Chicago from my favorite fashionista-on-a-budget store Crossroads Trading Co. fits that description spot on. I purchased this dress a year ago and was waiting for the perfect event to wear it too, and finally I wore it to Art City LA. But a week before I wore it out, I stared at it and felt I needed to alter the dress by changing the long sleeves to short sleeves.
Fits perfectly and love the sleeve chop!
Living in LA has me spoiled all year round with the beautiful sunshine and warmth. Seeing long sleeves on this dress didn’t feel right, and I wanted some arm exposure and room to breathe! Once the change was made I was so glad I did it! I enjoy wearing bracelets, so this allowed me to showcase some fun silver jewelry. The sleeves were now the perfect length and I was ready to wear it out and feel my best. My takeaway from this is, if you feel an article of clothing needs a change to adjust to your lifestyle or fashion sense, go for it! Now what else should I alter in my closet?
No matter how you spin it, bright colors and prints will always reign supreme in my world. When I discovered the brand Single, I was drawn to the the vibrant selection of hues and patterns for dresses, blouses and more. I wanted to get a closer look at what Single offers, so I stopped by the warehouse to wander down the aisles and pick out a few items to try on!
Single was co-founded by the married duo Galina and Michael Sobolev in 1994. It embodies the individuality of style and confidence and was created to reaffirm every woman’s zest for life, romance and luxury. Using delicate silks and one-of-a-kind prints, it was quite obvious that I would be attracted to her clothing line. Let’s take a look at what I discovered in this downtown space!
The Cascade dress is a fun flirty dress to wear on date night or a fab event. I love the cut in the front and the draping in the back. It comes in several different colors.

Claudette maxi dress
You can never have enough maxi dresses and I would definitely add this to my wardrobe. This print is beautiful and the fabric is very soft to the skin. The cut in the front and back give you something to look at both ways! This dress is perfect for that sunny vacation or resort!

I have yet to find a jumpsuit that fits me well, and I think that this might be the one! The Janessa jumpsuit was so easy to put on and felt effortless.

Elaina Cage Neck dress
Another fun dress to wear on a night on the town, the Elaina Cage Neck dress comes in fun colors and the hot pink one is my fave!

On Friday I attended a gallery open house of various artists in the Pacific Design Center and I wanted to wear something creative and funky. My leggings say that and more, and I got them from my favorite store, Crossroads Trading Co. Peplum strapless top is from Zara, clutch from Nine West, necklace from ANGL and shoes from Macys.
