Monroe-kini

I’m wearing a Dani Monokini via Orchid Boutique.

Happiness is a new monokini – let me rephrase, happiness is a new monokini before a giant wave clobbers you sideways while you are daydreaming of being a magestic sea creature on a rock and sand gets in your bum!  Oh well, I love the ocean so much that I wouldn’t have it any other way!

I’m wearing pants/top by STAUD, Marc by Marc Jacobs shoes.

I feel like I should  be lounging on a Miami yacht with a martini in hand when I wear this outfit. Oh well, instead I give you my front driveway/lawn at my parents house. Not pictured, my fancy wine glass – still WINNING :)

On a real note though, I find a matching blouse and trouser set much more appealing than an LBD these days.

what’s your sign, baby

I’m wearing a Realisation slip dress, Saint Laurent platforms, Celine sunnies, Eddie Borgo Safety choker .

I know its been said, but can the 90s just come back and chill for a while? SUEDE PLATFORMS-CHECK, SATIN SLIP DRESS-CHECK, CHOKERS FOR DAYS – CHECK. Ok, I’m done with my rant, but seriously…there was way more experimental dressing back in the last golden decade….and I’m backing it.

I’m wearing a Vance T-shirt, Ryan Roche shaggy cardigan, B-Sides denim, and Saint Laurent platforms.

Okay, so I found out over the weekend that abandoned playgrounds are super creepy….but I also find they make amazing backdrops! I spent hours here monkeying around in my new favorite T-shirt line by Vance out of LA – hand painted tee’s…very original, and effortlessly cool! ALSO, blue denim is my lover forever and ever.

dirty, but cute

I’m wearing a Perks and Mini T-shirt, Re-done Jeans, Alexander McQueen mules, and a Chloe Faye bag.

Guys, I’m back!! I have so much to share…SO, I thought I was going to take time off for a while and discover my “path”- turns out, my dream job fell into my lap to work at a jewelry store on Rodeo Dr. in Beverly Hills! Originally, I wanted to get my feet wet in the medical world (getting my RN degree)…but after I saw my mom in the hospital dealing with a slew of nurses sticking gigantic tubes down her throat and needles and her arm, and oh…the blood….I decided that this field wasn’t for me. I sometimes feel that we can be in such a hurry to find our path to happiness, but sometimes the path finds you.

If only poodles were pink…

To my dearest lovely readers: I am sad to report, that this post will conclude Adorn La Femme’s journey. This blog has meant so much to me. Ever since I saved up enough money to buy my first DSLR camera, I blogged my heart out every free second I could. This past four and a half years in the blogosphere just flew by, and I can’t even begin to describe how many amazing friends I’ve met along the way. This blog was my baby, but now I have to let her grow up and go to college.

A very special thanks to everyone who made Adorn La Femme possible:

Mom – Thank you for bearing with my on hot summer days, for always being a hero on my HMU, and learning the ins and outs of a Canon 5D – and killing it with amazing photos, you truly blew me away!

Tommy – Thank you for taking the lead on re-designing my web-page, and also for sleeping on the couch countless nights so mom could help me with this – I love you!!

Molly – My best friend and photographer, thank you for the early morning shoots, late night talks, and  all of our BLOOPERS along the way – I couldn’t have made it as far as I did without you!!

KISSES TO YOU ALL! And please please please, stay in touch with me!!  adornlafemme@gmail.com

Kisses, Lauren

Summer whites on a hot winter day in LA! All that’s missing is an iced cocoa. Lately, I have been loving the sophisticated feel of a mock neck top. Its amazing how a teeny tiny piece of fabric can completely elevate a look. What are you guys into this season?

Getting lost in a sea of dreamy L.A. sidewalks is pretty therapeutic, seriously, just getting out of your car and making more of an effort to go places on foot, is a total treat (for body and brain).

I missed you guys! Anything new to report on? Did anyone make it to that epic H&M X Balmain release?!! I wanted to go so bad, but I am deathly afraid of big crowds, so I just ended up being a hermit! Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!

I dedicate ALL of my Sundays to ballet class.  Ballet has not only been a life changing experience for me, it has also helped me with health issues surrounding my spine.  Upon rediscovering ballet (from my childhood), I have a new sense of grace, poise, and endurance that I never saw in myself before!

If anyone in the LA area wants to take a class with me, I go to the Align Ballet Studios (Silverlake, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, North Hollywood, Downtown LA).  My teacher, Grace Allison, is one of the best teachers I have ever come across!
