Giuseppe Zanotti Chain Ankle Boots – Rock & Roll Style

Giuseppe Zanotti boots

Being in New York City for a whole week, really inspired me to go out of my shell. First of all, silver isn’t my color at all! Second of all, I am not much of a boot person, although I purchased two while I was in New York. I really am a heel girl, usually pumps or strappy delicate shoes! Loving that style these days. Now that I am back in L.A., I don’t know when I am going to wear these boots but I got them and they are so fun, but a little on the funky side.

I left my heart in NYC #NYFW

ARIKA NYC WHITE COAT TAN
I’ve been to NYC several times, usually just for a few days, but this visit I got to go and really explore the city because I was here for an entire week I was not working the entire time. As a lover of fashion and a fast-paced city lifestyle, going to New York City during fashion week was a dream come true.

I’m obsessed with NYC! – NYC Street Style

Arika Sato NYC Street Style Coat
I’ve been in New York for two full days now and this city is absolutely beautiful! Each person’s individual style is amazing, the shopping is spectacular, the food is delicious, and the people are so cool as well. It’s a bit rough and not as chill as L.A. because it’s a city that just keeps going, but I am beginning to fall in LOVE with the city!  I am thinking of being here a lot more now, even if it is SO COLD right now! It was 28 degrees today!

Nike Dunk Sky-Hi Wedges

SKY HI DUNK arika
I am not a kicks girl, at all. A lot of my ex-boyfriends have been always into kicks, and “collect” them. I just never got into them, ever. Even when I was younger, my brother and father wanted me to wear sneakers, but I just HATED them so much. I tried to be cool and wear them once but I just looked ridiculous with them. I was so awful at basketball as well, and always “double-dribbled.”

My Wearable Lingerie Line – #GLAMgerie

Glamgerie by Arika
It has always been a dream of mine to have my own clothing line. Since I was in seventh grade I have always wanted to be a fashion designer, but my dreams were killed when my father actually told me that it was such a hard path and I probably won’t be able to succeed in the fashion industry. I am glad he told me that though, because it made me try even harder in my life. My father himself is actually an entrepreneur, but to him, he wanted me to take the safe route. He wanted me to simply get an education, and choose a career that was more traditional and secure career.

THAT NUDE DRESS

NUDE DRESS HOUSE OF CB
This might be one of my favorite dresses I’ve ever worn for a while. I really love the color nude because I feel it’s so feminine and I also feel it gives off that “naked” look, but you aren’t naked at all, obviously! During Superbowl weekend, I decided to put on this little number! It was Sunday after the game and I brought some of my sexiest dresses to Scottsdale! Since it’s a new city and I don’t know anyone, I gotta dress to impress!

Tan + Black Two Piece

Hot Miami Styles Tan Two Piece
I am literally obsessed with two pieces. I just can’t get enough. This little number is too cute! I got it from HotMiamiStyles and they have tons and tons of two pieces! This one is a bit fancier and flashier than the other ones they have because of the beading but I love the glam and the flash, obvi.

Red + Black

RED AND BLACK ARIKA

 

As you guys get to know me and follow me, you will see that my #1 go to outfit when in doubt is ALWAYS, a pencil skirt and a crop top. The reason why is that, you can never be underdressed in a pencil skirt, nor you can never be super overdressed because pencil skirts are traditional, chic, and standard. Some ladies wear it to work, some girls wear it to lunch, and some just wear them every single day like me.

Sheer Dress – Yay or Nay?

Black Sheer SideI was actually really scared to wear this dress! I thought it was a little bit non-traditional and kinda crossing the line. But I wanted to get it! I really was waiting to bust it out in like Miami or something but I decided it is sort of a winter item, with the longer look,  so I figure I wear this to an event full of glamour girls and gay guys who appreciate this type of of risque taste! I wore it to a makeup party during IMATS weekend for Mac Daddyy’s release of his own line of Morphe Brushes!

White Playsuit – Sisters The Label

White Romper Sisters the Label Arika Sato

Today was a sunny day in LA. Even though it’s winter, it was like 73 degrees Farenheit! I decided to take out my summer clothes and I found this cute white playsuit. I got this playsuit from Sisters the Label. It is an Australian brand, and can you guys please explain why there are so many cute brands from Australia?! It’s a one size fits all and it fit me great! If you are smaller, I have a 24 inch waist, you just have to wrap it around multiple times. There are 12 ways to wrap it and I decided to wrap it the halter style! I paired it with my go-to favorite Nudist Sandal by Stuart Weitzman. The sunglasses I am wearing are the Bluebird 2 from Dita.
