stripes and denim

It may not be Spring yet but I couldn’t help but pretend like it was yesterday. I was playing dress up with a fun boutique in Encino and I came in wearing layer and walked with this. This super fun knot front striped top paired with this super light wash denim and basic black pumps is a perfect go-to Spring outfit. Stripes and denim is a quintessential look for every season! It never goes out of style and just by changing the wash of your denim, you can truly make this transitional.

Stripes and denim are two essentials in my closet. I have oodles of denim in practically every wash and bajillion striped tops. Whether they are long-sleeve, short-sleeve, or blouses, they consume my wardrobe. I definitely can’t complain nor can I say I don’t have any classic pieces.

new year’s eve dress

What a year, eh? 2014 is almost over and what better way to bring in the New Year than to sparkle? I’ve learned so much this year and can’t wait to see what excitement unfolds in 2015. This year has been one of the most challenging thus far however it’s taught me so much and helped me grow. Most importantly, this year has brought out my passion for blogging again so THANK YOU to those who read and follow me. It truly means the world. I can’t wait to share what’s in store for 2015!

A dress for New Year’s Eve can super stressful to find. A New Year’ Eve dress should be fun, flirty, classy and make you feel like a million bucks (well, because you are!). This navy sequin dress (also available in red) is from Private Cartel (get it here) & it’s under $100 (and on sale!). I love this sequin dress because it’s sexy but the long-sleeves make it less open. If I’m showing legs, I cover up on top!

If this dress doesn’t do it for you, there are other options in the “Shop The Post” section! Enjoy & Happy New Year!

Shoedazzle x St. Judes

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend high tea at The London Hotel in West Hollywood for an event hosted by Ashley Tisdale supporting cancer research for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. The event was sponsored by Shoedazzle and it was such a pleasure to be able to spend the time for a good cause. Aside from blogging, I also am a Marriage & Family Therapy Intern and see clients, mainly children & adolescents , so children have a very special place in my heart.

For the event, I naturally wore these amazing silver pointed toe pumps (they’re called the “Beatrice”) from Shoedazzle. They are so chic and look very expensive, but most of all, they were extremely comfortable.

Private Cartel is LIVE.

Happy Monday everyone! Today won’t be a personal style post because the past week and half I have been non-stop slaving away working on the final touches for my online store Private Cartel. I started this store six months with my friend and back then it was just an idea. An idea I always wanted to make happen, however, with my Internship and seeing a full load of clients and full-time blogging again, I wasn’t sure I would be able to deliver.

Today, I am proud to say that I have made an idea a reality. I have worked non-stop and full-time with this store with a very minimal budget. All photograph and photo editing was done by my partner and I and we designed the website as well. It took us hours every day to scramble, and right now, it may not be perfect, but it’s something I am so proud of.

Private Cartel caters to both MEN & WOMEN, so there is something for everyone!

Please go visit Private Cartel and as a gift for following the blog use the promo code PCLFM10 for 10% off your total purchase!

Below are some items I’ve posted on my Instagram wearing items from the store!

Once again, THANK YOU all for your continuous support. I really wouldn’t be where I am without you.

And, I’ll have an outfit post tomorrow :).

back to the basics

Denim is never going anywhere, and the denim on denim trend is one of my favorite styles to sport. Today’s look is very simple, a denim blouse, and a denim skirt. I love how comfortable yet stylish it is and it can be worn for practically any daytime occasion, even night, if you’re going to a casual dinner.

love is a laser quest

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend filled with a lot of fun, rest and whatever makes you happy! I am really excited to share details about today’s look. I’m obsessing like a teenager girl over this blush trench coat via Daily Look! Paired with my favorite slouchy boyfriend jeans and blush pumps, this may be my favorite casual look to date. It’s feminine yet comfortable. I’m always trying to challenge myself with different trends and styles, so my next challenge is: flats!

Anyhow, I hope you all have a lovely week. I’m going to take this blush trench coat and wear with everything. Yup. I may need to go into an asylum. An asylum for the fashion addicts. I wonder if they have enough closet space in the rooms…
