Fall in Los Angeles is basically just summer with a jacket.  It's sunny all day with a light coolness in the air, but when the sun hides, the fall winds sure show their face.  I love it, any excuse to layer on a coat, a hat.. scarf,  knee high sock (!?)... truly puts me in heaven.  This look today is what fall style is to me in this desert-esc lifestyle that we west coasters live in.  It's a little bit of boho mixed in with a little bit of desert grunge.  I mean any excuse to wear fringe is always a plus.  Which is what inspired this look.  I say it was inspired by a gift from the thrifting gods.  Which is where I believe every good jacket comes from. 

This look, along with a few others this season is modeled by the beautiful Arie Bodenhausen, which is what inspired the collections name.  Her amazing energy and inner beauty is what I feel really brings these images alive.
