Venice Beach

Venice Beach nights -- what a treat.  As much as I miss having a crisp morning with a hot coffee, during the holiday season in NYC,  romping around Venice Beach, in November, in a slip dress, barefoot, is sort of unbeatable.  Venice is seriously adorable from the main drag of Abbot Kinney with its cluster of shops and colors to the beach boardwalk, there is so much to do and see. While I was there I met up with blogger pal Laurie Ferarro of The Rue Collective while she was out in LA for a visit from freezing NYC and we shopped on Abbot Kinney, drank coffee, and walked the palm tree lined streets. Also...you may have noticed that the slip dress in the below photos has clearly become my favorite dress (I tend…

Los Angeles Living So Far

Los Angeles

Hi Everyone – sorry for the delay in posting, as you know I moved from New York City to Los Angeles, so it was a bit of a task and I haven’t had a lot of time to just sit down and blog! If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know that I made it to LA safely and my life has certainly changed quite a bit in just a few short weeks.  I went from having: a full time job living in my own studio apartment having a long distance relationship adhering to my own schedule            to living in a two bedroom apartment with my no longer long distance boyfriend having a dog – yes, you may have also seen sweet Huckleberry on my Instagram (I'm…

How to Wear Bras that are Meant to be Seen

bras that are meant to be seen

If you haven't noticed, bras are not just bras anymore...they are bras that are meant to be seen:  fashion pieces.  More and more brands are making bras not just to serve their basic function (support) but also to add a little something extra to an outfit.  I have taken this trend head on for the last couple of years as you can see in some of my other looks where my bra was a main component in the outfit.  More recently Boohoo sent me this adorable mesh bodysuit (another trend I have taken on with full force as well) and it's completely transparent.  So you have to have the right bra to wear with it to make sure it adds to the look.  I just so happen to work in the bra industry so I have…

Orange you Glad to See Me?

Orange you glad to see me?!  I hope so!  Since you're here reading MSL, I'm guessing that you read my 2017 Goals and Resolutions post, in which I so humbly suggest that one of your resolutions should be to read more MSL! So now that we're into the swing of 2017 (we are right?!) I'm sharing my first outfit post of the year!  If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me in this bright orange sweater.  With this freezing cold weather I couldn't have asked for a better winter piece.  There's also something really cathartic about wearing a bright color when it's absolutely freezing out -- it really brightens up your outfit and your mood! I found this sweater at my new favorite store: & Other Stories, which is actually a higher…
