walk the line

So today’s outfit post is a little Missy Elliot inspired look (well, not really…but look at the image below, it just reminded me of it). Nothing is more me than an all black look, so that’s why this post is simple, but with a fun twist. Normally I don’t wear such funky sweaters but when I saw this in the mall in Istanbul, I couldn’t resist it. I threw on some chains and red lipstick and decided, why not? And voila, this post is made.

will you be my valentine?

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and today’s post is a look dedicated for that special night. As much as I don’t really care for Valentine’s Day (I think showing love and appreciation randomly and often is much more exciting than a day where everyone and their mother gets flowers and chocolate), I still decided to make a post (well, two- one later). Regardless, I hope everyone has a great Valentine’s day! There is never a bad day for love.

This is a quick outfit post and due to the major wind today in Los Angeles, my hair is covering my face in most images. Too bad I couldn’t get the whole “glam hair blowing in the wind” look, but hey- it just wasn’t in the cards for me! Also, the sun kept coming and going so the pictures are a bunch of different colors- sorry!

Anyhow, my amazing little sister and my second mom (two people I cherish so much and will always) gave me a belated birthday present over the weekend during dinner. They know me so well and got me this gorgeous silver and white statement necklace. Naturally, I had to wear it ASAP! A special shout-out to two women who truly are blessing in my life: Gloria & Anahid. They are better than any materialistic gift…they are both, as people, gifts to me.

I am also excited to debut these heels I purchased during Christmas. They appear to be solid silver and black but at night and in the sun they sparkle…a lot! I am madly in love with them and wish I had more opportunities to wear them. I highly recommend them (they also come in gold too, but I found the gold to look a little cheap). You can view them here.

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

Well how about that Superbowl Sunday, right? Okay, I don’t really have any idea about American football, but it was fun to watch. Last weekend I got to watch the game, eat amazing unhealthy food and see a live band perform. Here’s the best part, the band was Metal Mariachi band! It was amazing. I don’t think I’ve hear such epic music and seen such energy. They were called Metalachi and it was so fun to watch them and listen to them rock the stage at this party I was at.

I don’t wear jerseys of sports paraphernalia so I opted for black…and plaid!

If you were watching, who did you root for? I was rooting for Seahawks for 1 reason: I like their uniform colors better. That’s how you pick a team right? Uniform colors? Aaaaaand I’m done embarrassing self!

Oh, and I’ve been on a Disney high, hence the post title. Don’t judge me- I need to find someone to take me to Disneyland ASAP!

packing a punch

I don’t know what inspired me for this outfit but I’m pretty sure the sunny weather and the fact that I’m ALWAYS in black motivated me to just be bold. I have had the blazer and skirt for awhile and somehow they coordinated perfectly with my necklace. There is no theme to the images, but I was just having a lot of fun wearing this.

Where’s my motorcycle at?

Alright, as much as I love the idea of ridin’ dirty on a Harley, I probably wouldn’t be able to maneuver one. I have rode on a bike, so fun! Today was casual and I really miss being casual. I’m always working so slacks and button up’s have been my uniform. Now that it’s the weekend I can play! I love these motorcycle leggings so much, I am so happy I got a chance to wear them again. I’m a sucker for a loose denim shirt and white tank. It’s so “hipster” but hipsters don’t have big blonde hair, so I can pull this off without feeling too trendy.

My Last Outfit Post…before my Bday!

My birthday is tomorrow and I haven’t even thought about what to do, where to go, or anything! It’s been such a crazy month and I realize, a good movie, a glass of wine, and pajamas might just have to be the plan for my Saturday night! But that’s okay, I get to see some girlfriends for dinner tonight and I’m looking forward to it. Today I decided to wear two of my favorite things: sequins and leather. It may be a bit much, but I couldn’t even tell you how fun it was to wear this out for a day of shopping.

Happy Friday to you all!

Winter Florals

I’m not trying to make anyone feel bad, but the weather in LA is not winter weather-at all! 85 degrees and sunny! I don’t really enjoy summer clothing but I decided to splurge this and get some warmer weather clothing. I bought this fun romper mainly for the adorable ruffles on the bottom.

Sorry once again for the stereotypical backgrounds! I’ve been so busy I either a) am rushing to be somewhere b) I forget to take pics when I’m actually out!  I promise to try to be more creative soon :) .

The M Day Spa…

I can’t tell you how excited I am to write this post. I was given a dream (a small one) to get eyelash extensions from the M Day Spa and I couldn’t be happier. I’m a sucker for layers of mascara, falsies and anything that boost my eyelashes and make them more va-va-voom! I was greeted by the owner and an employee with such open arms. The salon is quaint and very home-y. I felt like I was going to my best friends house for a girl’s spa day!

I was informed about the eyelashes and how long they typically last and hearing about it made it even more exciting for me. I was taken to a cozy room where I was shown the various kind of lashes. You can choose various kind of curls that best fit your lashes. Each letter corresponds with a more obvious curl: j, c, b. You can also choose thickness that best fits with your natural lashes. The ranges are .15, .18, .20 and .25. You also have the option of silk or mink lashes. Silk tends to be shinier whereas mink are more matte.

I can’t complain about my service, it was exquisite and I would highly recommend them. They looked natural and they lasted me a good month!

Istanbul Casual

This is one outfit I wore when I was in Istanbul. While over there I went to the Kapali Carsi (Grand Bazaar) and purchased a lot of neat goodies. In this outfit post, I am wearing a jade green python clutch and a leather jacket I bought from there. The prices are so amazing, the clutch, which you could find on SALE for $1,000+ cost about $200. The lambskin leather jacket with gold hardware cost me $400. All genuine leather and python. My best friend and I went bananas at the prices, she bought about six clutches in an array of colors. I seriously wish I had more time to go explore more and more and buy a bunch of other things!
