I’m headed to Los Angeles for a week for some events, filming and the O You! Conference for my Oprah/ IKEA partnership and I need some casual but cool outfits to wear!  Now, I am kind of (and by kind of I mean in the debilitating, sweaty kind of way) stressed about what to wear not only on camera but also to an event with like a zillion people and OPRAH herself.  Oh, and did I mention I have about 5 hours to figure it out because this weekend is also my high school reunion? Yeah, I’m trying to stay calm but it’s not really working out so awesome.

So my plan is to 1) run to J.Crew and 2) buy whatever I see. Why is it that whenever I need amazing outfits I have no time or money but when I do have time and money I can’t find a freaking thing???? One redeeming thing is that when I had my O shoot they stylist gave me this pretty fierce pair of purple velvet Rachel Zoe tuxedo pants- since that outfit isn’t the one that ran in the mag, why not finally wear them? I found this adorable Joie top in the same shades of purple and an amazing lucite necklace from Kate Spade that I also wore at the shoot. Paired with a black faux fur vest and my black Loubs, H bracelet and Kors watch I think I’m good to go for one outfit at least (IKEA launch event?)

1./ 2./ 3./ 4./ 5./ 6./ 7.

For something a little more preppy but fun is this green silk pant/ navy sweater combo.  I threw in my signature leopard in the shoes and doused it with chunky gold accessories and one of the KILLER new Coach Legacy bags (anything with a tassel slays me, seriously!) Might be good for the conference, no?

1./ 2./ 3./ 4./ 5./ 6./ 7.

Still empty handed for on camera look though so please wish me luck in pulling it together!
