Hi ladies! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend filled with lots of food, love and shopping! I didn't do much shopping during black Friday because I've done it in previous years and honestly never found deals that were impressive enough to warrant the crowd and chaos.
F21 Pleather Skirt - sold out. XS. (similar here + here)
Qupid Potion-89 Pumps (buy here or here). Size 5.5.
I ordered these Qupid Potion-89 Pumps a couple of weeks ago and have been wearing them non-stop since I've
gotten them. They run very true to size and the heel height is about
4". I have worn them for short periods of times (1-2 hours) and they
felt comfortable. I really pushed my luck today and wore them while shopping and
they definitely hurt my feet after extensive walking. Despite that, I still love them!
I got to see my 2 little cousins during Thanksgiving. I've watched them grow up and can't believe they are still taller than me with my 4" heels. I always tell them that I wish that I was as tall as they are and they always tell me that they would happily switch places with me so they could be petite. LoL! I guess the grass is always greener on the other side.
I also got to meet up with SPG & Karen for some delicious Thai food at Lers Ros.
Their menu is huge and I love that their offerings differ from your
usual curry, pad thai noodles or papaya salad! If you are in the mood
for something exotic, they also have dishes that contain alligator,
rabbit or frog legs. I'd say this is definitely one of my favorite
restaurants and would recommend it to those who love Thai food.
I fell in love with this fabric when I first saw it. I thought the
penguins were too cute and the vibrant red color was just so festive and appropriate for the holidays!
And all bundled up to go outside!
DIY Tulip Dress. Available for custom order. Email me for info. Similar here & here
Aritzia Babaton Bromley Coat (review).
Size XXS. Comes in a few other colors. I've been loving this coat because it's
extra heavy and keeps me super warm. I'd say it is heavier & warmer than my J. Crew Lady Day Coat (review).
Hi everyone! I have big news for you today! After much encouragement from friends and fellow readers, I have finally opened up my own etsy shop. You can purchase this flared chevron skirt that's made custom to your size and desired length. I love pockets and added that to the hips with stripes matching the skirt so it looks almost hidden. It has an invisible zipper at center back and blind hem at the bottom. The skirt can be purchased lined or unlined. I have enough fabric to make another skirt in the exact 1" stripe fabric shown below. The other available option are 1.5" stripe fabric in black + white or other colors (email me for other color choices). I hope you like this skirt and please let me know if you have any questions!
We had an Indian
summer in San Francisco and have been enjoying beautiful sunny weather until
this week. I feel a little unprepared for fall and feel ambushed by this chilly
weather! When I leave my apartment during the evenings, I can see my breath and
feel the crisp air cut into my skin. I have lived in SF for most of my life,
but I have to say I just never got adjusted to the cold. I know, I know, I do
complain about the cold all the time. If you’ve ever been into my apartment,
you would know how much I like the heat. I was told by a recent visitor that
her bf almost fainted due to the extreme heat in my apartment. I guess I just like my apartment to feel like
a tropical beach! Hopefully in the near future, I could move to somewhere where
the weather is a constant 80 degrees so I could turn off the heat and save
money on my electricity bill. Until then, I’ll just embrace the cold with a few
cozy items that will keep me stylish and warm.
I’ve always liked the
idea of a sweatshirt dress because it’s sporty and girly – sounds like an
oxymoron. Haha! I’ve owned one before,
but thought the fabric was too thick and made me look bulky so I eventually got
rid of it. I really like this sweatshirt dress made of fleece because it fits close to
the body and looks quite slimming at the same time. I added a no fuss faux fur vest for extra warmth and feel that this piece can
be easily transitioned into SF winter and spring as well. I’ve been wanting a
faux fur vest for the longest time, but my bf always gives me the thumbs down
when I try it on. He says it reminds him of a sachsquatch! To keep my legs
warm, I picked out these Reef winter moon boots with faux shearling. They kind of remind
of a more refined version of the Ugg boots that I used to wear during college
years. I know a lot of people think they’re ugly, but I still rock them…in my apartment
(that is!) because I’m too embarrassed to wear them in public. Haha! I finished
off the look with a satchel and arrowhead necklace because the colors in those two items
really add pop to the outfit. And I just love the drop earrings
because of the chevrons and think they would be cute with any outfit!
I got this skirt about a month ago and I have worn it at least a handful of times! I'm a little obsessed with it! The length and fit is great for petite ladies and the XS has a waist measurement of approx. 24.5".
