Fringe Benefits

H&M Faux Leather Fringe Jacket, La Mer watch

Sometimes you score a bargain that seems to lasts longer than more expensive items. I got this fringe jacket three years ago for $20 at H&M and still tons of compliments whenever I wear it.

Casually Asymmetrical


Oak NYC sweatshirt, Zara jeans, Nike shoes

Loving how casual yet unique this sweatshirt is. The inside is warm and fuzzy like your everyday sweatshirt but the asymmetrical slit takes the look up a notch.

Holy Ship

Sharing some stills from one of the best music festivals (if you can even call it that) I’ve ever been to – Holy Ship! Days on a cruise filled with endless music, dancing, and the most creative costumes I’ve ever seen! Who’s digging my psychedelic cat shirt? :) Till next year!

TPFC Items: Helmut Lang Bra Tops, 50% off

Sometimes it’s not about what you wear on the outside but the inside. I’ve had my eye on these Helmut Lang bra tops and was finally able to get them on sale. It was well worth the wait, because they go under so many things and create a different dimension to many looks!

2015

image

Can’t believe a month has gone by in 2015 aleady and without a single blog post. I ended my previous job in December and started a new year with a new job, way faster than I anticipated. Moving from a small company to a big one is exciting, but getting familiarized with the new job has taken a lot of time and energy that I haven’t had a chance to update! I’ll start the first post in the new year with my purchase of from AllSaints sale – these 2 in 1 boots! These lace ups become zipper edge booties when you unzip and take the top part off. I’m positive they’re going to get a lot of use in this coming year.

DVF

Had the privilege to meet Diane von Ferstenberg over the weekend being T.’s +1 to the screening of the finale of House of DVF and its after party at The Grove. Wrap dresses aside, she was even more vibrant and inspirational in real life than what I’ve seen of her through the media. Both during the Q&A session after the screening and listening to T’s interview with her, she possessed a kind of positive energy and sass that was contagious. When asked what accessory a girl should never go without? Confidence, of course.

Thankful

Haven’t had Thanksgiving with the family for a few years now so it was quite a treat getting everyone together for a reunion. Besides having lots of delicious home cooked meal, this time I made sure I balanced out all the Thanksgiving food with some outdoor activities. It really was a breath of fresh air running in the neighborhood and at the Stanford Dish. Compared to LA, the air smelled and even tasted fresh and crisp.

The last picture of course wasn’t taken outdoors, but I couldn’t skip showing off my Black Fridays purchases. I was never a believer in Black Friday because I’ve never found any spectacular deals on that day. This time, however, I stumbled accidentally at a nearby Nike Factory store and went nuts with their special deals. Needlessly to say I’m pretty much set on workout clothes for awhile (till next Black Friday?).

An Anniversary

AllSaints coat and sweatshirt/dress, Stuart Weitzman boots, Phillip Lim Mini Pashli, Swatch watch, Brandy Melville braclet

Celebrated our two year anniversary over the weekend with some art at the Getty and food + wine at DTLA’s Bestia. Can’t believe that was the first time I’ve been to the Getty having lived in So Cal for so many years. I’ve also wanted to try Bestia for awhile now and finally got a chance to. Can’t even remember the last time I dressed up and had a nice and relaxing day due to my crazy work schedule. Definitely appreciated the great company and food. Getting an AllSaints dress as a present doesn’t hurt either. :)

Happy 2 year boo!
