3.1 Philip Lim For Target


I could not of been more excited for Target's collaboration with 3.1 Philip Lim. I have been eyeing his Pashli Satchel for a few months now and was hoping to be lucky enough to grab one of the purses he designed for Target, but was not quick enough! :( But I have not given up all hope, I stop by all Target's that I pass by in the Bay Area to see if I might stumble upon one! So wish me luck. :D

I hope everyone is having a great week so far!

Sequined Polka Dots & Tulle Skirt


Don't forget to check out and enter into my giveaway with Glamour Me Jewels!




Ta-da! I finally found a tulle skirt! Actually, it sort of found me...  So I'm working with THE LIST by I-ELLA. They are a monthly subscription program where members receive a gift bag full of fashion and beauty goodies. (here is a preview of a past goodie bag). Each month has a different theme and this month was Sex & The City! This is my first month working with I-ELLA and I cannot not express the excitement and thrill of opening a gift bag of unknown goodies, and then the overwhelming delight I felt when I saw there was a tulle skirt inside! For those who remember, I mentioned about month ago that I was on the hunt for a tulle skirt, but have had no luck until now! So here is my first (I say first because I know I am going to style with it again and again and again...) pairing with my gorgeous tulle skirt by Space 46. I kept the color palette neutral with gold, white, and black, but had a little pop of red in my shoes, nails, and bracelet. :) 

THE LIST has 3 different bags- the Starter ($59), SoHo ($129), and St. Barth's ($389). I got the SoHo bag which included the tulle skirt I am wearing by Space 46, Caroline Gardner notebook, Blithe & Bonny soap bar, and Herban Essentials towlettes. If you are considering joining a program similar to THE LIST by I-ELLA, I recommend considering them because I absolutely enjoyed my first gift bag.

Leather Blazer, Chambray, and Olive Pants


TGIF! :D If you have not already, check out my new giveaway with Glamour Me Jewels for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to their store! Also, congratulations to Ron for winning my Polette giveaway! 

The other day, we took Mochi, my 4 year old German Shepherd that I adore, to Petsmart for his regular shower and they forgot the bathe him! :( My poo baby was locked up in a cage for 4 hours. Mochi is a big dog and it boggles my mind how they could book him an appointment for a bath and then totally forget to bathe him. When we brought him home, he was really thirsty and really had to use the restroom. We've never had an issue like this with Petsmart before, but this was very upsetting and we're definitely not going to go back there. :( So FYI for all of my pet lovers, don't let that happen to your pet!

Casual Chic & Giveaway! (Closed)







I wore this pairing to the airport over this past weekend when we flew to Los Angeles for a couple birthday parties. On the surface, I loved the casual, simple, and chic feel of a tank, jeans, and heels, but one aspect that I overlooked for my trip to the airport are that these lace up heels are a pain to take off and put on. So as we went through the TSA security screening at the airport, I held up the line... sorry! >_< But besides being hard to put on and take off, these heels are one of my favorite items in my closet!

Military Inspired With A Green Leather Skirt










I wore this outfit a couple of nights ago when a couple of girlfriends and I grabbed our weekly dinner, we usually get yummy sushi. ;) On the surface, this outfit is very simple. It is a lace top with a skirt, but with the skirt being leather and a breathtaking olive green, it was fitting for the changing weather. I got my skirt and heels from Lulu's and am really exciting to share with you that I'm collaborating with them, so look out for upcoming pairing featuring their items! 

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and I have another exciting giveaway coming up on my blog this week! :)

Utility Jacket & White Shorts


I took these photos when I was down in San Diego this past weekend. We spent the entire weekend running errands and buying apartment necessities at Ikea, Costco, Target, and Walmart. I adore the gold details on this utility jacket from Forever 21 and was sad that I forgot to put on any accessories when we left the apartment. I think gold accessories would of been a nice touch to complete this look, but nonetheless it is a super casual and chic look that is perfect for when you are on the go. 

Theres only a few more days left to enter into my Polette giveaway, see this blog post for all the details.

Hi everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend! I had a short yet busy trip to San Diego, but loved every minute of it. The weather was gorgeous, food was delicious, and I got some pieces from the Philip Lim for Target collection. (yay!) The highlight of my weekend is when I came home to a gift package from I-ELLA and inside was a tulle skirt from Space 46!!!! I have been admiring, wishing, and even considered making one for a few months now and cannot be any more excited about it.
