{Outfit} From zero to my own hero

Sometimes I think about creating something and I'm just so driven to finish it that I stop everything in the world finish.

This was not the case with Mista Fox.

I think I started this project towards the end of last year and well, while creating Mista Fox was pretty quick and easy, finding him a home and actually putting him on his home? That took a while. But here he is! And I must say he looks rather content in his new surroundings. I suppose I could've bought about 10 fox sweaters in the time it took me to finally finish this one, but I just didn't see one that I actually liked. All the foxes out there seem to lack cute factor. And c'mon.. its a fox. Its just meant to look all cuddly and cute!

I'm pretty proud of myself. There's always that chance that what you envision falls short of reality. He makes a pretty good summer to fall transition piece huh?

{Outfit} Tigers on a gold leash

The great thing about having to visit all these different venues for the wedding are new photo spots! The last place we went to felt like something out of a fairytale. I found myself searching for fairies in the trees and trolls under the bridge.

Alas. There were none to be found. Or they heard my fee-fi-foe-fum and ran away.

If you haven't noticed, I'm rather obsessed with stripes lately. I honestly cannot get enough. Especially navy or black stripes on white. Lucky for me, Anna loves me and helped add this striped blazer to my collection (❤). True story, this is the first women's size item from JCrew I have ever purchased (I am quite guilty of shopping in the kids section). The first of many, I hope. The quality of this blazer is superb. Even FH noticed right off the bat that it was a higher quality item. Based off of the review from Extra Petite, I had hoped this would fit me perfectly in the XS, but unfortunately it does run a bit big. Nothing a quick trip to the tailor won't fix. Though.. as to when I will get to the tailor is a whole 'nother story!

Happy Thursday everyone!

{Outfit} Just can't crack your code

Oh the wonders of technology. I'm literally typing (or should I say swyping?) this popostst while sitting on a plane, waiting for it to take off.  So many things we can do now a days with a tiny handheld screen (well let's face it.. the HTC one isn't really that tiny), and yet something as simple as lighting I still can't grasp.

Undoubtedly my editing skills have been improving.. but the bright shiny glare of a to high sun still causes me to spend 30 mins trying to find that right balance.

One day I'll get it! One day! 

Another thing that is evident is that I'm quite obsessed with black and white lately (though judging by this IFB project, I'm not the only one!).  I promise I'll get more than just pops of colors back on this blog but as of this moment nothing speaks to me more than the crisp contrast of white and black.

{Outfit} Double Trouble

I feel like I've hit some sort of blogger milestone. Y'know how every LA blogger seems to have at least one set of photos at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art? Well its like that, but for the Bay Area its Legion of Honor (unless of course you're Wendy and have sets from both). I feel like these locations should end up on Shit Bloggers Wear or something.

In any case, its not hard to see why everyone loves to take photos here (or at LACMA). It is just beautiful and oddly simple despite the numerous columns. I'd never been to the Legion of Honor before. Its quite amazing inside and I'm sad we only had enough time to cover the top floor. I can appreciate and understand paintings, but sculptures (marble in particular) just blow my mind. I hope we can go back soon and see the rest of the museum.

I've been playing with this idea of a double peplum for a while now, but I couldn't find the right peplums to stack against each other. The peplum on the skirt has a lot of volume and length, and I needed to find a top that had the same amount of length but not as much volume. I'm so happy I found this top from Express. Not only does it let me stack four layers of peplum, but it is covered in stars! It was really the perfect outfit to wear for my birthday.

Unfortunately, San Francisco being San Francisco, I ended up changing into pants not long after this. The fog rolled in pretty hard and the temperature dropped dramatically. Lucky for us there was 69,000 people at the Justin Timberlake concert to keep us warm! :P

P.S. If it looks like my hair is a hot mess.. its because it is. Another San Francisco blessing. Fog + curls = frizzy hair.

Happy Thursday! Thanks for reading!

{Outfit} You and I are a story that never gets told

My name is Kori and this is my human. She likes to wear dresses. And today she seems to think that I am a prop.

But I don't mind (much), since that means we get to go on a walk! And I get to explore the neighborhood. She think she's in control.. but little does she know. I walk when I want to walk!


Oh no wait... its just a pair of heels. My sister, Kaylee, she likes to eat a lot of these. My human gets pretty mad. I'm not sure why.. she's got so many of them. What's a few to occupy that annoying little brat? She's always stealing my lap time... and my toys!

But out here? Its just me and the human. The little brat had to stay home because I'm so much prettier than she is!

And really... I couldn't be happier.
