Rose Glow



I am wearing the amazing 12 way convertible dress by My Little Bow in my favorite color, purple. You can see all the super cute ways to style this dress here. (Inspired by the Victoria's Secret 12 Way Flirty Convertible dress) It's the perfect dress for an evening out or styling all of your bridesmaids! Because really this dress is so elegant and works on everybody! And I never realized before today how much I like rose gold with purple. They are both red toned colors and have a subtle synchrosy.

Also to anyone wondering where my eye makeup tab went - I'm working on updating it. So it should be back soon :)

Out To Play

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
Gap Cardigan, Bullhead Black white denim shorts [Similar], American Apparel striped crop top [More fun options 1, 2, 3], Nine West sneaker wedges [Similar], Nasty Gal black fringe bag, Zero Uv sunnies [Similar], Fossil watch

Sneaker wedges, over-sized cardies, fringe and some stripes make for a seriously fun playground. This outfit shows the kid in me while also being kickback cool. As part of my second look as part of the Gap x Lookbook summer styld.by campaign, I styled yet another look deemed music concert worthy only not as bohemian as my last. This is more of a sporty look though still just as relaxed and hopefully stylish. ;) 

I actually shot these at the Santa Cruz Beach boardwalk about a month ago. It was roasting hot and I really did feel like it was summer! The weather cooled down this week but it's still nice out. I'm such a warm weather person. It really makes me happy to not be freezing all the time!

Chambray and White Denim


PB&J White Denim [size 26], Meredith Hahn Starfish Necklace, Oia Jules Bracelet, Flirt Catalog Chambray Shirt [Similar 1, 2], Aldo Woven Leather heels [Similar 1, 2, 3], Romwe Brown Messenger Bag [Similar 1, 2, 3], Michael Kors Runway Glitz watch

Now this is easily one of the best/classic outfits anyone can quickly pull together to look polished, clean and casual. I did decide to use a cropped chambray top which is not so classic but adds more of a fun element. This PB&J white denim makes this look perfect for spring, and combined with woven leather heels and a golden starfish necklace, you might just feel like summer is right around the corner! Which it is!

Also wanted to mention the new Vidal Sassoon Pro Series line I was recently introduced to! I've been using the shampoo and conditioner and it makes my hair feel and look amazing! Vidal Sassoon is actually holding a Facebook contest "Show Your Genius" in which entrants can submit a photo of themselves having a great hair day up to once a day, everyday until June 18th! The prize is $1000 and a years worth of Vidal Sassoon Pro Series products + a pair of Vintage earrings from Decades (which I am guessing they choose for the winner). Also see a close up of my hair in my Chictopia post here.

And hey, don't miss out on the international Sheinside giveaway in my last post!

International Giveaway


(from left to right)

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Memorial 3-day weekend :) For me it is nice and quiet. Finally catching up on some major cleaning (sounds awful but I've put off for years so it feels like such a relief) and recipes I've been wanting to try like this amazing Pesto Ranch Chicken and also my favorite no-bake Strawberry Cream Pie (I may do a post on this soon!). I went to the farmers market yesterday and had a little picnic at the park. It was lovely. Might even go hiking tomorrow. Sad I did turn down my girls' invite to Vegas to save money, and also because of a pending modeling gig in Thailand... but hey there's always next time!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

I love this super girly and sweet Motel Rocks Danielle Dress (which I just realized is supposed to be off the shoulder - oops!). In fact, I always love everything I get from UK store Motel Rocks!! This dress is form fitting and so feminine. It works with flats too if you want to go more casual (throw on an unbuttoned oversized denim shirt too!), and the print is just right for spring or summer. I daresay this is a perfect look for a Hollywood tea party (yes I'm referencing Kandee Johnson's recent tea party post) or maybe just a daytime party/bbq if you don't happen to have any tea party invites which errr most of us don't ;)

Fringe Dream

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Roaring 20's gone modern! This is just the perfect dress for a summer event (festival, concert, beach party, etc) when you want to stand out in the crowd. I mean dip dyed full body fringe is clearly a head turner, though my mom couldn't decide if it was good or bad. Let's not listen to her, though shall we? I really had fun wearing this and felt like it was super unique. This is probably because Fox House is one of the best online stores to go for those beautiful bohemian and vintage style pieces. :)

Really a great piece and it would also go very well with a black Fedora but I don't have one :(

Everyday Gray

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This Shana Luther leather bag is so soft and roomy - perfect for a laptop! And it felt perfect for heading to the coffee shop to study, a casual group meeting or even for traveling! 

I just love casual with a kick and felt like the faux leather moto jacket and Zara booties really added that element this everyday outfit. :)

And yes! My hair is naturally wavy! I actually diffused (mousse + diffuser on low heat) my hair for the first time in yearssss, maybe since highschool, I really can't remember. But it was too much hair (adds so much volume) so I had to put it in a pony! Haha.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. :)
