Shopping: the highs

AllSaints Kaisia Loafers

I’d like to break this purchase down by numbers:

  • Original price $318
  • Purchased price $78
  • Total savings $240
  • Total time stalking the site as it went from 30%, to 50%, to 70%: 4 weeks
  • Available sizes left at 70% clearance: 1 (what do you know, my size!)
  • Purchased 3 times
  • Returned 2 times

Buying something at its cheapest price ever offered? One of the highs of shopping, you feel me guys?

Tucked

AllSaints dress, UO sandals, Brandy Melville necklace

The woes of trying to get details of an outfit right… of which include the ‘tuck’ that all street style stars seem to have perfected. If you’ve ever wondered how to recreate that look – how much to tuck in, how much to let out, and where to tuck (not to mention the multiple times you have to redo it after using the restroom  - AllSaints has got the solution for you! I got this dress from my mom when she visited over the weekend (she claimed it to be “too young looking”), and I found it hilarious and also thankful AllSaints made this twofer DRESS that helped me look like I oh-so-casually tucked it in just enough and slightly towards my left side, and never have to readjust as I move about the day!

Thank you, AllSaints, for making me look like I’ve got it down perfectly. Now I just hope no one notices that this only happens when I wear this outfit.

Summer Essentials

Zara top, Forever 21 shorts, UO booties, Karen Walker sunglasses

What’s not to love about a basic white tank that is just the right amount of roomy and fitting? The dropped armholes is perfect with bralettes and is nice and breezy during those hot summer days. A  Zara buy at just $4.99, I kind of need this in every color.

Downtown

Forever 21 dress, UO booties, Rebecca Minkoff mini wallet on a chain

En route to a birthday party over the weekend. I hate it when I accidentally shrink my clothes, like this dress I which I wore then shrunk after Coachella last year. Now it’s nearing the too short side but I thought I’d give it another try since I love the style.

Cruisin’

Updating a pic from last weekend during the day on a yacht celebrating a friend’s birthday. Hoping everyone will get some sun and/or BBQ this long weekend.

Happy 4th everyone!

Smart

H&M top, Blank NYC shorts, UNIF loafers

No, I didn’t get a new car, but the boyfriend did, and he lets me drive it around! The Smart Car is so little and cute; I feel like I’m a character in Mario Kart. Feels great to be eco-friendly, not to mention how easy it is to park. Now I can be one of those cars that annoy people when they start turning in a parking spot to find out it’s not available, just a small car.

Grids

Zara shirt and shorts, Forever 21 bra top, Dr. Martens brogues

Perfect weather today with warm temperature and slight breeze. Since I don’t have the guts to go all mid-baring in those non forgiving crop tops, a semi-sheer shirt with a faux leather bra top inside will do.

Spark Run LA

Didn’t hesitate to sign up when I heard about Kaskade’s Spark Run, a night 5K run followed by a performance by Kaskade. Two of my favorite things, music AND fitness? Sign me up! It was my first night run, and other than some parts of the path being too dark, everything else was great. The live set at the end was like a reward for the run. Dancing during the set killed even more calories, and what’s better than having fun while burning calories?

Unladylike

Brandy Melville tunic/dress and body jewelry, H&M lace shorts, Forever 21 sandals

Sometimes I forget I’m wearing a dress and move in unladylike ways that a lady definitely should not when in a dress. Lace trimmed biker shorts is a trend of years pass, but these ones from H&M still exist in my closet. Lace trimmed bottoms and hems are common these days, and it’s nice to have an pieces like these as an add on. Plus, they come in handy when I wear them under tunics/dresses – unladylike movements welcome.

Oh! also need to give an honorable mention to this very affordable body necklace/jewelry I found at Brandy Melville that can adorn so many outfits! I tend to break or lose my jewelry a lot so affordability is a must accessory wise.

Lastly – I’m back to short hair again!
