A Stroll Down The Neighborhood Part Deux

Last week was quite busy! Ellen ran around the OC for photoshoots at the Back Bay in Newport Beach and Balboa Island; the scenery was gorgeous and her work can be seen at if you're curious:) As for moi, December is a big month for us at the record company I work at, so I've been writing music articles late into the night and am ever so thankful to whoever invented espresso machines.  We both love keeping busy, so it was a marvy week overall.

We're also preparing for our first guest blog, stay tuned loves!  The auctions are now up, so start bidding for you chance to own these fabulous finds<3!

A Stroll Down the Neighborhood With Prada

Last weekend we took a stroll down the Newport neighborhood (while the weather was still bright and sunny!) and snapped a few photos of our favorite heels and our latest find - an uber lux and cozy Michael Kors peacoat! As for the vintage Pradas and MaxMara pumps, we nearly fainted when we found them tucked away at our local vintage shop. 

Bid for this Michael Kors Peacoat here.

Afterwards we got brunch at our new hotspot Plums Café in Costa Mesa and both ordered the Alderwood Smoked Salmon hash and two cups of coffee. It was absolutely divine and the coffee was the perfect pick-me-up after a long morning of vintage hunting<3

Stay tuned for more Skirts & Ties escapades!
