THE NEED FOR TWEED

Wednesday, January 29th, 2014

For me I love to have classic go to pieces like these in my closet – the classic trench coat and a sophisticated tweed dress. These pieces are great to dress up any look for work or a business meeting. And luckily for me I found both in petite sizes from Banana Republic! Some days (and the key word here is some) I wish I was still in the Corporate world so I dress like this more often, but many days I’m thankful I can wear my PJs while editing and comfy clothes and flats when photographing clients =).

P.S. This is actually my husband’s favorite coat on me, maybe because it’s a coat Olivia Pope might wear from Scandal…hmmm…

LEATHER + LEOPARD

Monday, January 27th, 2014

I have been searching forever for harem pants that fit me and don’t look like baggy pajamas pants on a teenage girl. Every time I see my taller friends (and most of my friends are taller than me) wearing them I get seriously jealous because they look so darn comfortable and cute. But low and behold I found the perfect pair that fits my size and they are on SALE HERE at Nordstrom!!! On a less petite person, they might be a lil’ on the shorter size but they are perfect for us petite gals. And did I mention they are super comfy?! You can wear them casual or dress them up with a cute pair of heels.

PUT A BOW ON IT.

Friday, January 24th, 2014

This outfit makes me feel like quite a lady. I love the midi length that is so popular right now – it makes any skirt look so chic and polished. I especially love this pleated midi skirt from Modcloth because it does fit me well and because it has POCKETS! I’m a sucker for any dress or skirt with pockets =). And I am also a sucker for anything with a bow on it hence the sweater and the shoes here (and the title of this blog post) =). This skirt is really wonderful for any occasion – pair it with a blouse for the office or a cute crop top for going out at night. For more colorful options on the midi skirt, check out my blog post from yesterday!

On a personal note, the hubs and I have been busy buying furniture and decorating our new home! It’s our first time being homeowners and we can’t wait to share when things get a bit more finalized!

IN FULL SWING

Thursday, January 23rd, 2014

One of my favorite trends going on is the full skirt. It’s so girly, sophisticated and versatile. You can pair it with a beautiful blouse, fitted sweater or loose tee for a more casual look. There are so many lovely ways to wear it. Tomorrow I will show one of the ways I chose to wear the full skirt but for now check out all these adorable and affordable options available from ModCloth. ModCloth has one of the best collections and varieties of the full skirt. I wish I could order them all in all these pretty colors but I think my husband would not like that so much =P. The best part is ModCloth has FREE SHIPPING on orders over $50. Which one is your favorite?!

LACE + LEOPARD

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Ok lets be honest here – I chose this outfit of the day because I really wanted to wear my new leopard pumps. I have been searching for weeks for a pair of leopard pumps that won’t break the bank and not look too cheesy and I found the perfect ones from DSW online. I love the d’orsay style of these pumps which make them surprisingly comfortable. This look proves that a great shoe can pump up any outfit =).

FLORAL FUN

Monday, January 20th, 2014

Happy Monday everyone!!! Ok so the weather has been unusually warm here in SoCal lately (high of mid-80’s) and my closet is so confused right now. I may have a teensy bit more clothes than closet space (I’m not sure why my husband just won’t surrender his side of the closet to me) which means I usually pack up my summer clothes in storage boxes in the winter and swap them in the summer and vice versa. I just bought this super cute romper from Urban Outfitters and decided to embrace this splendid warm weather. This romper makes me feel really girly so I paired it with my favorite handbag – my gorgeous rose pink Louis Vuitton Alma bag. I bought this bag for myself on my second trip to Paris in 2010. I went to the flagship LV store on Champs Elysee and immediately fell in love with my idea of pink perfection. Unfortunately the sales lady told me there was only one of these left in all of France, but luckily for me it was only 10 minutes away. So I ran off to find her and bring her home with me to the States (I think I was smiling the whole plane ride home with her on my lap). My husband still thinks it was the ultimate sales pitch by the LV sales lady but I don’t care – I love her and she’s all mine =).

BLACK + WHITE BLOCK

Thursday, January 16th, 2014

I usually avoid color block dresses because I tend to feel most of them have blocks that don’t flatter petite frames. But this gorgeous dress from Ann Taylor had the proportions in all the right places. I especially love the details of the dress such as the boatneck, boxy shoulders and the bow belt. This dress is definitely suitable for the office or the perfect lunch date.

On a side note, my husband commented on this shoot that I was showcasing my favorite Chanel handbag waaay too much lol. I can’t help it – it really does go with everything! But I also took it as his blessing to get something new and pretty for myself =). Hint taken honey! I guess I have to go shopping now…

ULTIMATE WEDDING SHOES

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Who’s ready for some major shoe crushing?! When I got married last year, it took me months to find my perfect wedding shoes (more on those babies later =)). I know all the guys out there are going to kill me for posting these, but c’mon if there’s ever a time to splurge on beauties for your feet, I would say it would be for your wedding day! I have photographed many, many wedding shoes and my favorites are always the ones with a touch of sparkle, a touch of girly and a whole lotta glam. It’s not just about the dress anymore ladies! So, which ones are your favorites?!

GIVE IT A TWIRL

Monday, January 13th, 2014

Maybe it’s the photographer in me, but I love dresses that have a lot of movement. And it’s definitely the shorty in me that prefers maxi dresses because they can make you look taller =). I love this flowy maxi dress from ASOS with it’s beautiful lace details. And these photos may look effortless (hopefully) but it took a lot of patience (from the hubs) and shots to get the perfect flair from the dress. I have A LOT of respect for my couples and all the models/fashion bloggers out there now. DO try this at home with your favorite flowy dress =).

P.S. I can’t thank the hubs enough for helping me with the new blog! His talent is amazing and his helpfulness is even greater. On every shoot so far, he’s been zipping me up, fixing my hair and adjusting my wardrobe. I think he’s learning more than he wants to about women’s fashion lol.

WINTER MIX

Friday, January 10th, 2014

I love me a good winter coat, especially when it has (1) fur (2) toggles and (3) fits petite sizes like this beauty from Anthropologie. And yes our definition of a winter coat in Southern California is something slightly thicker than a sweater =). Have a great weekend everyone!
