2016 NYFW Recap

 On Jasmine (left): Top (similar and affordable version here) | Trina Turk Bag (similar) | Joe's Jeans | Heels | Sunglasses

Last year I attended NYFW with my sister Jasmine in the spring and I must admit, the weather is much nicer for the fall NYFW! Last year was when NY had record low temps and it was absolutely freezing. It makes wearing spring clothes a little difficult!lol It was definitely a bit warm this time around but we really enjoyed the sunny weather.  We even made the last minute decision to bring along my sister's puppy (Sophie) on the trip. She's really calm and friendly with people so she is easy to travel with. Sophie even did a photoshoot with a little girl who was a model for a few of the runway shows!

We did a red-eye flight to NY and when we got there our room wasn't ready yet so I did a little shopping while Jasmine and Sophie slept in the lobby. I had been eyeing this gorgeous Gucci bag before the trip, so as soon as I saw it in store I knew I had to get it. This bag is even more gorgeous in person because the color and gold chain are just so stunning. And it comes in 18 colors so there's a perfect color for every occasion... just saying ;)

Teal Silk Dress

Kitsch Couture Silk Dress [code Hapa20 for 20% off!] | White Heels | YSL Bag | CLUSE Watch | Brighton Christo Cuff | Dainty and Bold Necklace

I just discovered this super cute floral shop in downtown Los Gatos called Bunches. It has all the same vibes of a European flower shop which brings back great memories though I hope to go back to Europe soon :) It happens to be right next to Kitsch Couture which has the cutest clothing, jewelry and shoes! Check them out in person if you can, but if not, they do have a website you can use the code "hapa20" at for 20% off.

Burgundy Suede Moto Jacket

Burgundy is back with a passion! I have been so excited to see it in all forms - suede, cotton, velvet, leather, faux leather etc. Dresses, sweaters, bags, coats, jackets, tops and maybe even pants! This moto jacket I have on is from the new Lauren Conrad collection. She came out with some really cute stuff, you guys should take a look :) I'm eyeing this romper (those sleeves!!) this gorgeous satin piece, this top, and this easy to style cami (perfect to wear with sweaters).

Also this burgundy version of my MK bag is perfect to wear with all your fall outfits. I actually bought my bag in the mini tan version and this mini green one too so I'm still debating if I should get a third color in the same bag (but I think that may be a little too much lol).

A Fashionable Greeting

Ever since I was a little kid, my mom would always make sure my sisters and I wrote thank you cards. I remember each year we would each write up thank you cards for our grandparents and we were always sure to draw something sweet on their cards. As a child, I never thought much about these cards. They didn't seem like anything special to me at the time. When I was a little older, I remember visiting my Grandma during the summer. As I walked into her study to say hello, I was surprised by what I saw. Proudly displayed on her bookshelf were all the thank you cards my sisters and I had written to her over the years. It was then I realized just how special these cards were to my Grandma and how much she loved seeing our notes of gratitude.

First Look of Fall

Sweater Top, Booties, Bag and Bracelet from Ross

Temps are slowly dropping and I'm so excited to start building up a new fall and winter wardrobe! I discovered a good amount of bargains at my local Ross recently like this sleeveless sweater, black booties, studded bag and sparkly bracelet. I think it's easy to get caught up in designer items since they consistently come out with such great collections, but we sometimes forget that we can find similar pieces for a much lower price if we just have the patience! I mean would you ever guess that this outfit costs less than $150 (all accessories included!)? XOXO

Casual Denim

Well here's another denim look for you guys! This time I just went with a blue denim shirt and black jeans. I paired mine with lace up booties and straight hair since curls would be too glam for this casual look. I was wearing it untucked before I realized it looked too frumpy. Pay attention to your curves and don't forget if you are covering all your skin, focus more on your shape.

NYFW 2016

Hey guys! I'm in New York right now and thought I'd share my look from today since I've gotten behind on blog posts. I just got this bag at Saks on 5th and have to say, everything in that store is seriously pricey. But I'm sure it's a good buy and it really has been adding a great pop of color to everything! I also love this Self Portrait top as the detailing is exquisite! It's been busy every day and that's not including almost any shows! (I only went to 5!) There is just so much to do in so little time. I want to try every restaurant and every rooftop. I'm already trying to decide the next time I'll come back!

Yesterday was September 11th as we all know and I was able to visit the memorial location the night before. What they've done with the space is just amazing and everyone should see it. What they've done is build a square hole essentially, with waterfalls all on the sides. Within that is another square hole and each drop is 36 feet. It's huge and impressive. I am extremely moved every time I think of the horrors of that day and what the families of those victims still feel. There is no excuse for violence, ever.

Denim on Denim

Here is a look I wore last week while out and about! I finally went back to PopBar and tried a better flavor... their green tea combo with white chocolate, dark chocolate and waffle crumbs is to die for! I've had these white denim jeans for like two years now and just simply haven't found a better pair, ever. As for Labor Day weekend, I didn't do anything special except relax :) Never can get enough of that!

Urban Outfitters Top (unavailable, similar) | Skirt | YSL Bag | Schutz Heels | Tom Ford Sunglasses

I just bought my first YSL bag! I love it and will probably wear it to death as it goes with everything, even a white tee and denim ;) And normally I would wear shoes that match the bag or vice versus but alas I don't have any blue bags and I just love these Schutz heels!

I need to shop and pack for NYFW by the way... who else is going? :)
