Finally wore my faux leather peplum top from Lulu's! What's even more exciting is my first interview video I did with the founder of Tumbler & Tipsy! Check it out and let me know what you think! I also reveal some awesome news at the end.

Okay, if you didn't catch it in the video, February is an exciting month for me. I'm headed to New York Fashion Week for the first time ever! Stay tuned for part deux with Tumbler & Tipsy and myself in New York!

Something Borrowed, Something Blue


                                                    (Embellished Stud Blazer and Cobalt Slit skirt c/o Excess Baggage)
                                                                         (Gold Initial necklace c/o Maya Brenner Designs)

I won't finish my title with, "Something Old," because that would clearly mean that I'm getting married and I'm clearly not. Anyway, anyone who knows me knows that my love for anything maxi runs deep. Oh and anything in black, of course. This jacket and skirt were a match made in heaven and an ode to the late Michael Jackson. I don't know, it just looks right up his alley except the skirt would be tight fitting pants and I would be doing an awesome dance move.

I really have to thank my sister for just being the best darn person alive. Thanks for taking amazing pictures and helping me create my first video. If you haven't seen it yet, please watch it below. I call it my "Bloggermercial" =)

The Looker

            (Blouse c/o Excess Baggage / Leather pants from Vanity Room / Forever 21 heels / House of Harlow shades)
           (IPhone case c/o Mobile Togs / Left wrist: Bracelet c/o Happy Wrist / Right wrist: Bracelets c/o Pinky Thumb)

 I received this awesome IPhone case from Mobile Togs a couple weeks back and I've been addicted ever since. It's compatible with the 4 and 4S, includes a shatter proof mirror and an ID and credit card holder. Seriously, who needs a purse?!

I wanted to start incorporating videos into my blog so without further ado, the project I've been working on:

Special thanks to Vanity Room and their amazing Manager, Danielle! Please check them out online here or in their boutique located at:

I Wear My Heart On My Sleeve


  (Fringe Heart Breaker sweater and leather shorts c/o Excess Baggage / House of Holland Suspender tights)

My quest for heart shaped tops continues way before Valentine's Day is even being thought of. Perhaps it's because my heart (not my mind) is constantly in the past and future rather than the present. Who knows how long this is going to last but I'm hopeful that by the loved filled day, I will have moved on to smiley print tops instead.

I have a bunch of upcoming outfit posts including an exciting project that I'm working on to showcase more of my journalism skills. Also, a collaboration with a few other bloggers on some outfit ideas for Valentine's Day. Stay tuned!

A Dose of Simplicity

             (Poncho c/o Naomi and Lavender / The Kink denim by Nasty Gal / Romwe shades / Bag c/o Baghaus)

Nothing is better to wear on a cold, rainy LA day than a cute and easy going poncho. Throw it on with your favorite denim and you're free to move about your day. In fact, my day consisted of hanging with fellow fashion blogger, Emily doing what we do best; photo shoots, coffee and catching up on all things blogger related.

Thank you to Naomi and Lavender for my amazing poncho and if you haven't checked them out yet, I suggest you do so now!

Goodbye and Hello!

Saying goodbye to 2012 with a mini picture diary from my trip to New York! This past year was a crazy, emotional roller coaster and I'm so glad to say hello to 2013. However, I'm extremely grateful that I started  blogging because I've accomplished things I never thought possible, met some really cool people and made some life-long friendships. All in less than a year! So for that, thank you 2012!

 I just want to backtrack for a moment and mention how amazing my trip was. Living there for almost eight years, then going back just for vacation, reminded me of how incredible the city actually is. I never fully appreciated the Christmas season until now. Oh, and I remembered to look up! Something New Yorkers forget to do =) Thanks to my sister for making the trip possible.

Wishing you all a happy, healthy and successful New Year!
