CCUOCO Bridal

There is one person in the world who could talk me into wearing a wedding dress and that person in Candice Cuoco, the creative director of San Francisco-based label CCUOCO.

And, of course, it’s no traditional wedding dress. She’d never create anything mundane – We’re talking leather, a removable train, silver studs, and obviously exchangeable harnesses.

Welcome to one of the looks from the CCUOCO Bridal Collection!

I love the addition of the fierce studded black heels with the floor length gown – It adds the perfect amount of rock n’ roll edge to give the look some punctuation.

San Francisco Fashion: Nighttime CCUOCO Crop Top

It’s been an honor to work with the CCUOCO team this year and after some fun photo shoots, an outstanding trip to London Fashion Week, and making some amazing friends, I’m excited to share the last look from the MCLV x CCUOCO 2014 Lookbook!

After showing off a fun way to put together a daytime crop top look, here’s the nighttime incarnation for the lady who wants to have a little fun once the sun goes down.

Black and white is a classic combination and I loved how pairing this fierce lace-up crop top with a chic white coat was the perfect high-low mix. And off course, a look wouldn’t be complete without a bold accessory in the form of a colorful Rebecca Minkoff crossbody bag.

San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO Lace-Up Vest

For the third installation of the MCLV x CCUOCO Spring Lookbook I’d like to share a great San Francisco look featuring this fun, flattering lace-up leather vest.

What immediately struck me about this fab lace-up vest is its versatility. I can easily picture it with jeans and a vintage tee for a casual but edgy daytime look or zipped up & paired with slim fitting black pants for a night out sans top {gasp!}.

For me, it was a no brainer to pair this fun, eye-catching piece with a simple dress for a put-together daytime style. The dress is flattering, but it takes a backseat to the drama of the vest, which is perfect.

Add killer heels and some chunky jewelry and you’re good to go!

How would YOU style this fun lace-up vest?

San Francisco Fashion: CCUOCO Spring Lookbook

Local designer Candice Cuoco of CCUOCO is one of my favorite San Francisco fashion discoveries.

I wore a custom-made bustier for New Year’s Eve this year {New Year’s Eve Leather} and recently sat front & center at her first solo runway show here in SF {CCUOCO DIVERGE}.

When she asked me to style a lookbook for Spring showing the versatility and wearability of her couture leather pieces, I immediately started daydreaming and drifted off to mixing & matching heaven.

As excited as I was to put together some daytime and nighttime looks using pieces from her collection, the end result was even better than I had hoped.

I mean… How often do your expectations get completely blown out of the water?

This leather dress is a cropped version of an amazing floor-length gown from Candice’s Fall 2013 collection and I immediately fell in love with this fresh, modern take on a classic style.

So how do you wear a leather dress for daytime? With a bow blouse and my favorite vintage peep-toe booties, of course.
