PInk Pops

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

This is an edgy, fun and summery look all rolled into one. I love how my DailyLook lace top is cropped and these Bebe shorts are SO soft and comfy. They do run big though, so I would recommend sizing down! :) I had a great time adding all these touches of hot pink - from my lipstick to my bag, to my shoes!

Speaking of which, these heels really remind me of a totally polished, pretty and mature version of the jelly shoes I wore in elementary school :) You can get them at ShoeDazzle, a monthly showroom filled with on-trend shoes and accessories designed and styled by a Rachel Zoe style team! Their shoes (both ShoeDazzle label and designer brands) are on average $39.95. First time purchasers can get 25% off and free shipping!! :)

P.S Don't forget to enter the Korean brand international giveaway in my last post! xo

White on Denim


Not too long ago I styled a chambray top and white denim with brown accessories (bag and shoes) here. This is kind of like a flip on that, with my white blouse and denim shorts with black accessories. Both ways I went with gold not silver, because it just seemed 'better.'  But anyways white, black and denim are 3 staples you should always have a lot of variations on if you want your style to have a classy, easy going vibe.

This is actually my very first Equipment top, and I honestly always wondered why Equipment tops were $200 on average. But really, when you touch the material, you will know! It feels really like nothing I've ever touched before. Soft/smooth but not silky and light/flowy but not like chiffon. Etc, etc.

You can see in my second to last photo a security guard walking up behind me. You might not realize it but my sister and I get kicked off property too many times to count. He said we were "loitering" (often we are not given a reason, we just have to leave).... even though it was a public area right next to a busy street... which honestly makes me so mad!! I know he/the security guards are just doing their job (this guy was pretty decent but most of the time they are outright rude and yell at us lol), but I bet if they wanted to they could let me hang out for just a few more minutes so we can do our thing (in which we are obviously [or perhaps it is not so obvious] we aren't hurting anyone or anything). Luckily we were able to grab the perfect amount of photos before he showed up but this is really a major pet peeve since I am very specific about how I like the lighting in my photos and we always have to find the right location! First world problems... huh? ;)

Announcing the winner of the Kiss & Tell giveaway tomorrow, btw, stay tuned!

Red Lace

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Red lace overlay is a really lovely spring 2013 fashion trend I noticed in the Elie Saab collection though I actually hadn't seen Dita Von Teese's dresses both here and here when I chose this scalloped piece on Feeluxury.com (owned by Sheinside.com). It is amazing how similar they all are!

This dress actually has a very Chinese feel to it, namely because red lace dresses are traditionally popular in China and red also symbolizes happiness and good luck. Here are two beautiful red Chinese lace dresses I found: 1, 2. (Maybe also because Feeluxury is located in China.) Please do note, the upper bodice was extremely constricting on my 34 - 26 -34 frame.

I am also wearing my late (Japanese) grandma's clutch here, she really was a lover of purses though unfortunately I am not sure what happened to all of them as I know Saks 5th Avenue was one of her favorite American shops so we must have more gems hidden away somewhere!

Cream and Navy



Another simple classy look for you guys! Since the shirt is navy and cream colored, I figured cream heels and navy shorts would match it nicely! Now this is definitely an everyday look, though the heels might get uncomfortable for a lot of walking! 

How was everyone's Father's Day? I went with my family to Monterey as mentioned, and it was really perfect weather! I also ordered a shirt my dad really wanted but couldn't find the size in XL - but I did find it on ebay so I'm excited since it's only my 3rd ebay purchase in about 10 years! It's coming a bit later than Father's Day but it's really ok since my family is not big on gift deadlines. 

Also don't forget to enter the Kiss & Tell wedges giveaway in the previous post! :)

Leopard and Lavender

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

 I really think leopard looks best with 4 colors. Black, burgundy, tan/brown shades and lavender! While leopard and lavender might seem unexpected, it's a really fun combo! I complimented the pair with gold and bronze accessories, like my Oia Jules necklace, Jeweliq bracelet and Michael Kors watch.

Now I love this cami but actually did have to adjust the straps by snipping/sewing 2 inches off so it was more fitting. I think it should have those clips like the kind you can find on your bra to adjust it but anyways it's a really easy fix if you aren't afraid to get out the sewing machine :) (It's sold out anyways so that was all irrelevant!) Also please note I tucked the denim under since the inseam was too long at 32". (I got size 3)

Congrats to Crystal F. and Anna W. for winning the Sheinside giveaway!! You will both be contacted soon. Also I am starting a Kiss & Tell giveaway on Sunday in which all of you will have a chance to win an identical pair of wedges to the ones I wore in this post :)

Blue Stripes



Blue is my dads favorite color. But I think it's actually a lot of people's favorite color. Which makes it a great color to wear year round :) Now for some reason I always feel like white and blue stripes are very nautical. And nautical feels like summer. So this is a great summery staple look! Plus touches of gold like this woven Citizen Mod necklace and chunky Michael Kors watch add polish.

I am holding off on announcing the winners of the Sheinside giveaway til I can verify the info. Also good news, I will be holding a Kiss & Tell giveaway on Saturday!
