Have you ever heard the phrase, “Beauty is pain?” Well luckily for spring 2012, fashion is all about the comfort. We can’t lie - we’re loving the fact that we can head to the office in glorified pajamas and still look chic and pulled together. Printed silk pants were all over the runways, and this pair from Malibu-based line Sjobeck definitely exudes a casual luxe vibe with a blend of rustic reds and blues. This style reflects Sjorbeck’s self-professed design aesthetic of “old Malibu in a young and fresh way.”

Risch-Floral-Blazer-women-new-jackets-vests-04.jpgWhile browsing one of our favorite West Coast-based online shops, Wasteland, we came across the must-have blazer by Stones. The floral print is right on trend, and the cut of the jacket is flattering on all body types. This jacket is sure to be a staple piece in your spring wardrobe - pair it with jeans and a tee, a dress, or with pants at the office.

LA-based Cast of Vices creates exact replicas of things like hospital bracelets, grocery shopping bags, and bottle caps using leather, sterling silver, semi-precious stones, and 14k gold. The collection is meant to cast a critical eye on pop culture and society’s “vices,” such as drugs, cigarettes, and alcohol. These interesting pieces certainly make for good conversation items! Shop the satirical selection online at
