LO & SONS CATALINA DELUXE WEEKEND BAG

Saturday, September 3rd, 2016

The hubs and I are off for a weekend getaway to celebrate our 3 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! How time flies when you are married and having fun ;)! We are headed for a short trip away and I thought it was the perfect time to test out my new weekend bag from Lo & Sons. Not only do I love the design and the gorgeous grey color of the bag, but the functionality of this bag is amazing! There are so many smart compartments to the bag and you can tell every functionality was thought through. The hubs and I travel a lot and I’ve been searching for a great carry-on to carry all of the random things I like to have with me on the plane. I got the the Catalina Deluxe in size Small so it wouldn’t overwhelm my frame. I love how the website shows the three sizes of the bags on three different heights to give you perspective of how the bag will look on you! My favorite part of the bag is the bottom compartment that you can access easily without opening up the whole bag. This is a great place for a pair of shoes, a sweater for the cold flight or a small makeup bag. Lo & Sons has a great video on what to pack in your weekend bag on their site so check it out HERE.

ASOS COLORFUL OFF THE SHOULDER DRESS

Monday, March 28th, 2016

Last Spring (with much longer hair), I fell in love with this off the shoulder floral dress from ASOS. Well this year, they came out with a more colorful version in bright Spring colors and I just had to get it as I love the fit and style so much! I think this beautiful dress is a serious contender for my search for a wedding guest dress! It does run tight so I might not be able to eat as much ;).

On another note, looking back at last year’s post, I’m still debating whether to grow my hair out or keep it short! I also had more of side part with the longer hair. So what do y’all think, should I keep my hair short or grow it out?!

ASOS is having a SHOP MORE, SAVE MORE SALE where the more you spend, the more you save! Be sure to take advantage of this sale which ends on 3/29/2016 if you plan to buy this dress!

POP OF COLOR

Wednesday, November 18th, 2015

It’s to default to black and greys this time of the year but why not add some color to the cold weather?! I have an endless love for the color pink so having a pink coat just makes sense. And not just any pink coat but a double breasted, petite friendly one like this gorgeous coat from Banana Republic. I paired it with more pops of color like this amazing fuchsia satchel Henri Bendel and Plaid Blanket Scarf from Morning Lavender. It’s really nice that it’s finally chilly in California (and by chilly I mean 60’s) and I can wear my coats!

CAMEL & CULOTTES

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

I never thought I could pull off culottes until I found these petite friendly ones from White House Black Market, which are on SALE right now for only $20!!! They are very flattering and work so well with my small frame. Now I don’t have to be envious of taller girls with this look!!! However, because they do cut off at the ankles which can make me look even shorter than I already am, I wore an ivory camisole in the same color to create a longer illusion of the overall look. I also made sure to not wear shoes with ankle straps or anything that would make me look even shorter so these leopard pumps were a perfect fit. For some added color, I threw on my favorite new camel blazer and my beautiful new Chloe which my friend purchased for me in Paris (can we say VAT refund?! woohoo!). I always debated whether or not my YSL bag purchase in Japan should have been the white or blush color (I know, first world problems) but now I have this darling one in blush so I got the best of both worlds!  As you can see, I like to save on most clothing pieces but splurge on my handbags.  I mean why not enjoy yourself a little, when you work so hard?!

WIDE LEG PANTS

Monday, January 5th, 2015

I seriously have spent most of last year searching for the perfect wide leg black pant! I wanted them to be high-waisted and the pant leg to be wide but not too wide where my small frame looks like I am swimming in them! And then recently I found the perfect pair from Ann Taylor.  I got these pants in size 00 Petite and they fit me perfectly and they are currently 60% off! I love the silhouette of the pants and with a pair of black heels or booties – you can amazingly look way taller. I also paired the pants with a lovely blouse also from Ann Taylor (and 40% off) and my classic camel coat from Morning Lavender. I love this head-to-toe chic workday look! It’s time to get cranking in 2015!

LADY ANN

Thursday, March 6th, 2014

There is seriously something so feminine and flattering about Ann Taylor dresses. The shape of this dress is especially flattering and I love the mix of camel and black. It’s a great go-to dress for wanting to look polished and sophisticated without breaking the bank. And the best part is that is currently 30% OFF on the WEBSITE!

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 =).

DRESSING UP YOUR MAXI

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Earlier I shared my favorite yellow maxi skirt and now I am showing how to dress it up for the holidays. Pair it with a fun sweater, a sparkly necklace and a classic Chanel handbag and you got the perfect holiday look! By the way, I love Ann Taylor and ASOS because they both have petite sizes! It’s always hard to find clothes for my 5’0 frame and I usually have to hem everything, but this maxi skirt was the perfect length.

A side story about my Chanel handbag. I splurged on this after completely booking out my 2nd year as a full time wedding photographer. I had always wanted one and this was my pat on the back to myself for all of my hard work of running my own business. To this day, it’s a reminder of my determination and success in my business. I love it for this reason and also because it’s so classically beautiful!

Ok now back to finishing up the Christmas shopping! =)
