Sequins


I hear the word sequins and I immediately think of the holidays and parties, wuju! I can't wait. Yesterday I was online searching for some cute dresses but it was just too much to take in one day, so the hunt to find the dress is still an on-going process. I have a feeling sequins will be making a debut in my holiday attire, will just have to see. 

I bought this sweater a couple of weeks ago and just loved the sequins on the shoulder. The simplicity and touch of sequins gives the sweater a bit of edgy feel to it. Now that I am all set to go, let the christmas shopping begin! Brace for impact.

This past weekend the hubby had asked me what I wanted for Christmas, so instead of providing a regular list of things, I decided to give him a snapshot of all the goodies I am currently wanting. Most of what's on my wishlist is below $100, which is perfect! Who knows, I may receive everything!  *wishful thinking*

Burgundy Scallop


This daylight savings time is just no fun. It just wants to ruin my schedule. I am telling you, she and I are going to sit and have a heart to heart. For real! 

I've been on the hunt for a cute scallop skirt for awhile but I couldn't find the ONE, until I found this one. The color, the length, and material is just perfect for the cold weather. As you know, I am a tights girl, so pairing the skirt with tights is just appropriate for the office. 

By the way, I bet you thought this was a top huh? No my friends, it's a dress. Ah, the wonders of versatility! :)

Preppy Denim


I thought this day would never come. Last week was a very difficult time for our family. We had an emergency that required us to travel to Puerto Rico, so I apologize for the lack of posts. I was also having some issues with my site, but it's all good now! 

Today was my first day back to work and had no clue on what to wear. I was feeling the preppy look and decided to pair it with this beautiful coral necklace. The weather was cold so the layering was just perfect! 

By the way, do you love my new blog design? I would love to hear your feedback!

At the Pier


Yesterday's weather was chilly and just perfect for a sweater and beanie type of look. The goal was to go with a casual chic look. I am loving the pop of color of burgundy lipstick and beanie. 

I've never been to Oceanside and since the hubby and I were off from work, we decided to go and check it out. You know you are in South Cali when you see surfers doing there thing in this type of weather. I would not get in that water even if they paid me. Check the picture below and you can see them swimming away. Crazy!

From Dress to Skirt


Ladies, don't let go of that summer dress just yet. I know some of you may have put away your dresses all the way back in your closet or even in boxes, but there is no need to do that. You can transition the look of a dress to a skirt by just adding a top, sweater, or jacket over it. I've had this dress for quite sometime and decided to style it with some leggings, sweater, and scarf. Wearing a sweater over a dress is a great idea. Just make sure that your top or sweater goes below the waist. While you're at it, add a belt if you wish and there you go! You have another look!

Fashion Inspiration - Taylor Swift

I love Taylor Swift's retro/vintage style and how effortless she looks. Her fashion style is simple, elegant, yet girly. Her cat eye and red lips is her signature look. On her video "Begin Again" she has a couple of looks that make her look sophisticated and feminine. She's no longer a young country girl but a strong beautiful lady. By the way, could she have picked a better location to film the video? I don't think so! One day you and I will meet Paris, one day (wishful thinking). She picked a perfect place to shoot a romantic video and not to mention, cute guy huh? Good job Taylor!
 
Below are two looks from her video and another look I created, which is similar to the first outfit she wore on the video.

Crazy Fur Journey


My favorite classic Rock band is Journey. Their music is amazing and the lyrics, forget it! I've been wanting a t-shirt from them for awhile. Thanks to my buddy Danah who gave me this top as a birthday gift and I love it! 

The main purpose of my trip to the mall was to find another pair of boots. I found these boots at Forever21 at a low price and of good quality. Why not go for a pair of black boots? So yeah, I left with two pair of boots and two sweaters at a low price. Mission accomplished!

Cardi & Booties


Out of all the days, I decide to wear a dress and tights on a cold day, eh, what the heck, why not? It's weird to say this but I am glad SD is finally feeling the cold. I know it doesn't compare to the east coast weather but a little cold weather in the west coast is all right with me. The more layering I can do, the better! 

I ordered these booties from Lulus a few days ago, and I just couldn't wait to start wearing them. They go perfect with tights and skinny's as well. These booties are going to be one of my favorites for the winter. You could give me a pair of booties and tights and I will be the happiest girl ever.

Historical Day


Today is an important day for many Americans. Today America will know who the next president will be for the next four years.  I hope everyone took time out of their busy schedule and voted. Every vote counts! 

Love this dress from H&M. A feminine and chic look for such an important day.
