Is hibernation season over yet? I swear that’s what it felt like to me all December along with the offbeat attitude! Geezus. I can’t believe 2014 is here. Last month I’ve been incredibly lazy, probably the laziest I’ve ever been the entire year! I didn’t… Read more

Spanish Batiste

Lately my favorite shopping hot spots have been at boutiques on Melrose and on Santee Alley. I’ve been slowly straying away from shopping at malls and from major labels now because everything I see are the same {boooo}. Top notch fashion bloggers all wear the… Read more

Seasonal Mint

The color MINT is such a hit this season! It was hard to avoid while shopping for a dress for my cousin’s wedding day. It was another beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony so my last minute get-up was planned for a bright sunny weather.

STREETSTYLE INSPO

I am loving this outfit I saw on this girl while having breakfast in Hollywood! I don’t think I’ve ever clashed prints and color blocking altogether before, but it definitley inspired some new outfit ideas for me to try for Spring!

A WEDDING DRESS

There must be something about 2012 with all the enagagements and marriages happening that year! A couple of my friends got engaged too, and I couldn’t be more happier for them to start the next chapter in life with their loved ones.

A GOOFY XMAS PT. 1

Happy Holidays everyone! I bought this goofy sweater a year ago to participate in a cousins’ “Ugly Sweater Christmas” but, this sweater doesn’t apply obviously… I bought it because it was CUTE! Score! <3

SAME DRESS

“We take for granted the freedom of having the ability to change our clothes every day. I want to try to walk in the shoes of a little girl who just doesn’t have the same luxuries as I do. So every day of the month for the duration of my KickStarter campaign , I pledge to wear the same dress for them.”

4 SIMPLE THINGS

Counting my blessings: I chose 4 simple things around my day instead of 5 because first of all, four is my favorite number! I decided to do this because it’s not often we all take the time to really appreciate the little things in life when you go through difficult times. And the smallest things always count.. Know that! :)
