sunday blues

H&M knit sweater, Zara blazer, Stuart Weitzman booties, Proenza Schouler clutch, Cartier watch, Hermes bracelet, Celine sunglasses

Hello everyone!! I'm sorry, it's been such a long time since I've made a post.  I just got back from a trip to New York with my husband.  I had such an amazing time, especially because this time, my trip to NYC was pure leisure!  I spent quality time with my husband and even visited a few friends there. There were so many places I haven't been to, so this time I crammed in everything within a week!  My husband and I were so busy (busy shopping that is), time went by super fast.  The next thing we know, we're back at our home with Caesar (our labradoodle).  The weather was cold as expected and we even got to see some snowfall!  With all the post Christmas sales going on, it was so hard not to go crazy with the shopping.  We were lucky enough not having to buy an extra suitcase to fit all our new stuff haha

If you dont love yourself, ill make you see your own heart

Urban Outfitters sweater, Urban Outfitters jacket, Topshop skater skirt, Balenciaga bag, Ray Ban aviators, Givenchy bracelet

It's Christmas Eve already! Ah, time is passing by so fast.  I just got back from my Big Bear trip with the family.  I forgot how much I loved and missed snowboarding! Can't wait to go back up there again.

  My hubby and I went on our last Christmas shopping run today (for friends, family, and of course ourselves).  I can't wait to see the faces of my friends and family when they open their presents, and I ESPECIALLY can't wait to open up all the presents I have under my tree tomorrow. :)

black and white

Zara sheer blouse, Lumiere colorblocked faux fur jacket, Chanel bag, Karen Walker sunglasses, Chanel necklace

TGIF everyone! It's only 4 days until Christmas!! 
As much as I love wearing bright vivid colors, my favorite outfit is a classic black and white combo.  People tend to think of black and white as boring or very conservative, but it's actually a very sophisticated and classic color palette.  I pulled a faux fur color blocked jacket on top to add a little bit of edge.  What do you think? :)

Obsession: Cut-Out Booties

New obsession: Cut Out Booties. I have been so very obsessed with cut-out booties after spotting the Balenciaga Buckle Ankle boots.  Then after much research and wait, I see that many other styles had been created by other wonderful designers.  I've been looking for the perfect ones for a while and I can't make up my mind.  I've listed some of my favorites.  They are ALL awesome!  Which ones are your favorite?

1. Elizabeth and James Suri
2. Topshop Adonis2
3. Jeffrey Campbell Everly
4. Balenciaga Buckle Ankle Boots
5. Reed Krakoff Cut-Out Heels
6. Givenchy Cut Out Pumps
7. Shakuhachi Cut-Out Tassel (can be bought at Urban Outfitters)
8. Topshop KATZ 
9. Alexander Wang Dasha

Shoulder peep

Open knit jumper by Nameless, American Apparel leggings, Alexander Wang Diego bag, Givenchy bracelet, Cartier bracelet, Isabel Marant sneakers, Karen Walker Sunglasses

It's so cold, it's making me feel really lazy.  I just want to be in comfortable clothes and wrap myself in blankets, hence this outfit.  This knit jumper is one of my favorites at the moment.  It's just a plain oversized jumper, but wait!  There's a slit at the shoulder which adds something interesting, a little more detail to this plain sweater.  And of course, can't forget my most-favored sneakers, my Bekkets!

Give you my all

Zara leopard collared top, jumper from Korea, Zara blazer, Celine bag, Karen Walker sunglasses, Steve Madden oxfords

It's definitely windy in LA, which calls for anti-static hair shampoo, hairspray, and a thick knit scarf! :) Can't believe it's only 1 week till Christmas!  I'm already sad thinking about taking down my Christmas tree.  Do you have your Christmas weekend planned out with events?  While most of you will be attending Christmas parties and dinners,  I'll be spending my weekend in Big Bear with my family for some snowboarding! Can't wait!

gone with the wind

 Urban Outfitters floral dress, Zara cardigan, Nasty Gal anorak, Joe's Jeans booties, H&M faux fur collar, Givenchy bag

Hello everyone!  I got back from a little mini trip to Santa Barbara for a good friend's graduation this past weekend.  Santa Barbara was beautiful, just how I remembered it as.  The drive was amazing -- a view of the endless ocean and beaches touched by golden rays of the sun.  It made me feel so pretty inside haha, which made me pick out this outfit.  Flowers!  This is one of those rare occasions where you see me wearing floral print.  What do you think? :)

the white fox


 Zara knit cardigan, gifted fur vest, Zara tank, True Religion jeans, Ray Ban sunglasses, Givenchy bracelet, Cartier watch, Celine bag

Happy Friday everyone! It was sunny in the morning but it's so gloomy now!  It's been soooo cold, I know I shouldn't even be complaining considering LA is one of the warmest cities in the country. Well, now I really have an excuse to wear fur! Faux fur, that is.  I would say this look fits in the category of casual boho chic.  I've had this gifted fur vest for a while now and I finally had the chance to wear it out! :)  Any thoughts, comments? I'd love to hear!

take me away

Kenzo t-shirt, Celine bag, Karen Walker sunglasses, Hermes bracelets

Happy hump day everyone! December is going by so fast, I don't want this holiday period to end!  Now that it's the end of the year, I really want a getaway, a vacation, a break.  How nice would it feel to go away, relax, and be able to just breathe??  I don't know about you, but as I get older, I feel like time is going by faster and faster.  We're living in the age of distraction and sometimes we allow time to rush past us; all the precious memories slip right past our fingers.   I should take it slow and really live in the moment that I'm in.  I definitely need a break. Haha

Zara Holiday Lookbook 2012

Speaking of Zara, these are some pieces from their holiday lookbook, and I'm loving them! A simple silhouette can really reflect your own style and look.  Minimalism is key.  Focus on key points like a soft messy bun, a bib necklace, or bright red lipstick.  Do you have your outfits prepared for the holiday parties??  What are your favorites?

the new black

Zara coat, Beulah dress, Karen Walker sunglasses, Celine bag, Rolex watch, Hermes bracelet

Happy Monday everyone!  Here's a new post of pictures I took the other day when it was definitely cooler.  I draped on this Zara coat because I was freezing!  I just love buying coats and jackets from Zara because they fit so snug.  When I see an XS in something, I just HAVE to have it.  Due to my petiteness, it's always hard to find something that fits me right.  Either the sleeves are too long or the shoulders are too wide.  What do you think?
