Over the weekend one of my favorite local boutiques had its grand opening. Carrie and Murphy Martines own The Celect, an independent men’s and women’s retailer fit for international fashion enthusiasts. Their collections are are bold, eye catching and just plain fun to wear. The opening was a success and brought out some of the most fashionable locals. That same night my friend Renee, of Hanger Shortage, and I also caught the opening of the Greg Mike exhibit now at Dax Gallery. The art work was fun and colorful. Its worth stopping by if you’re in Costa Mesa.

Top & Shorts : ZARA | Necklace : H&M | Shoes : Balenciaga

Lets face it black & white isn’t going anywhere but do try and mix your mediums. I paired these textured shorts with a clean striped crop top and added a crazy statement necklace for the focal point. However you choose to black & white it’s always a excellent base for those pieces  you want to steel the show.
