RAD! Vintage Book T-shirts

6 Aug

These t-shirts are seriously RAD! What could be more glorious than to rock a t-shirt with a book title from your childhood. I live in skinny jeans and t-shirts. I need these in my closet ASAP. My favorite is “The Great Gatsby” and “The Color Purple.” Check out full the collection of “book title” t-shirts at outofprintclothing.com.

The $1650 Silk Robe (Carine Gilson Egérie silk-satin Robe)

20 Jun

I’m no ‘bond girl’ but I’m convinced I could rock this robe with the best of them. This is one hot mama robe! I first spotted this gorgeous robe in the brilliant ‘Skyfall’ movie. Designed by Carine Gilson, the grand robe is created from the most luxurious silk. The silk is made in Lyon, in the same mill used by Hermès. The lingerie is handcrafted and adorned with the finest Chantilly lace. What women wouldn’t want to grace her body with this little silk number. Better question? What MAN, wouldn’t want to see a woman’s body graced in this little silk number. I wonder if Snookums (my future hubby) likes silk?! Hey Boo……

Mirror Mirror: H&M Sunglasses

5 May

“Because I’m addicted” would be a more appropriate title for this post. I’m obsessed. O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D! Obsessed, with mirror sunglasses. I generally spend waaaay too much money on designer sunglasses, only to have them break or lose them. This year I decided to go the less expensive route and pick up some lovely sunnies I spotted at H&M. I love them all, they’re similar in style but not in attitude. The total for my grand collection of sunnies – set me back only $35.00 for all five pair! Now that’s a deal! Check out your local H&M for the best selection on trendy and fun sunglasses for the summer. Which pair are your favorite?

Dream Leather Bracelet

17 Apr

Sometimes we need a bit of positive affirmation in life. Like this bracelet I picked up in L.A. last weekend. Everytime I wear it I’m reminded that my dreams are still attainable. All it takes is focus, belief, and trust. Your faith has the power to transfer your dreams into reality. I thank God for the privilege to dream! What are you dreaming about these days?

Lady Sneakerhead: My ‘Nike Dunk Sky High’ Shoe Collection

10 Apr

I’ve developed a serious affinity for ‘Nike Dunk Sky High’ sneakers. The concealed wedge for height. The Nike comfort. The dope style. It’s the perfect sneaker that goes with just about everything in my closet. I love to be comfortable while looking fly, so these kicks are just what the fashion doctor order. I’m a ‘lady sneakerhead’ and proud of it!

Turning 35 with NO fear

6 Feb

35 and loving it!!! This past Sunday was my 35th birthday! Whoo! Which according to a few of my married friends, 35 marks the last year before I’ll be “able” to conceive a child. Apparently, it’s not a great idea to have children after the age of 36 (something recommended by a group of married women who think they “know” more….blah…blah…blah). So, that leaves me with 12 months to find a man, date him, marry him, and get pregnant. Phew! I’m exhausted just thinking about it. Good thing I’m stepping up my game in the overachiever department. It just might be possible. All joking aside, I’m sure my sweet married friends didn’t mean any harm when they made the silly statement. I’m learning as I get older to not take things so personal, it’s a daily battle but one I’m conquering in small steps. I would rather focus on the time that has been given to me NOW. I’m 35, single, have a wonderful family, friends, and healthy positive outlook on life. I run a fashion blog that I’m in love with. I’ve been dedicated to my blog for the past 2.5 years and have met some spectacular people along the way. I have wonderful readers, that ask me daily fashion and DIY questions. I’ve met Sara Burton and Zac Posen all within a 2 week time span. I’ve travelled to Paris, Rome, Bali, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, and 25 states out of 50 U.S. states. I’ve worked for some major fashion players in the fashion industry. I witnessed a miracle last year with my father receiving a new kidney. I have an awesome relationship with my twin niece and nephew. Shoot! I think my life is pretty AH-mazing! There will ALWAYS be something I’m looking forward to and that’s a good thing, since it reminds me that I’m alive and well.

It is true that I want to be married and have children and maybe the clock is ticking away on that. While I wait for that dream to be fulfilled, I will continue to put my trust in God who has always been faithful to me. Trusting Him has never failed me. A husband and children will happen for me when its suppose to and not a minute sooner. In the mean time, I will continue to build my insanely AH-mazing collection of designer handbags! Heyyy!

Best Sushi Ever

25 Jan

I’m a bit of sushi snob since I hail of Seattle, Wa. If any of you have ever had seafood in Seattle then you know exactly what I’m talking about. The Seafood in Seattle is unmatched when it comes to freshness, selection, and taste. I started eating sushi when I was in high school and I haven’t looked back. It’s one of my go- to-meals. I’ve had some of the best sushi in the world (or at least I think so), Nobu in NYC, Ozumo in San Francisco, Hawaii, and Asia. Last night I met up with one of my favorite friends for dinner. I had a hankering from some sushi and wasn’t sure where to go, since we were meeting up in the East Bay. I checked out Yelp and found Amakara in Dublin, CA. The reviews were great and I thought I would give it a try. Boy, was my mouth and tummy happy with my decision. The sushi was AH-mazing! The fish was so fresh. It tasted like it was just caught and fillet 10 minutes prior to serving it. My favorite was the Poke Salad and the Salmon Nigiri but I loved EVERYTHING I ordered. The Poke salad has Tuna, seaweed salad, cucumber, red onion, furikake, sesame oil & quail egg yolk. It’s insanely delicious! I’m still dreaming about the Poke Salad. YUM! Double YUM!

Animal Pack: Yang Du “Noah’s Ark” Collection

18 Jan

I’m a bit obsessed with Yang Du’s – owl backpack. First reason for obsession – it’s purple. Purple is my FAVORITE color. Second reason – it’s freaking cute. Third reason for obsession. Does there need to be a “third reason” other than it’s AWESOME!  I heart owls and when you combine them with the color purple and design a cute little backpack all in the name of fashion. Well, count me in! I just wish the sticker price wasn’t so high. These babies will set you back $1000 big ones.

Etsy Spotlight: Papelle (Halloween Greeting Cards)

1 Oct

Have I told you all how much I LOVE greeting cards? I really love them! I love sending them, I love getting them, I love reading them, sometimes I like to read other people’s card. Ok, I’m joking about reading other people’s card – I’m not nosey. Well, I’m only nosey when it comes to my siblings. Hey, old habits are hard to break. Moving on……

Let me introduce to you Papelle, a beautifully curated card shop on Etsy. These unique and fun cards are designed by one seriously talented woman. I adore the color selection and the playful fonts. The Card Designer is amazing and can also whip up some really beatuiful custom invitations. Now, that should peak the interest of anyone who’s newly engaged folks. Papelle’s prices are so reasonable, almost too resonable. They start at $1.50 per card.  When’s the last time you brought a super cute quality greeting card for a $1.50! I’m ordering the “ghost card” for Halloween! BOO!

PS1 Proenza Schouler Messenger Bag: My Dream Bag

30 Dec

 

I see this amazing piece of leather in my future come 2012! I know…I know…you've all seen this luscious satchel all over the blogosphere but its so yummy! My only dilemma is paying for the crazy price of the bag. At $2000 that's more than I paid for my vintage Chanel bag.  Hmmm……
