Where are all my Victoria’s Secret Beauty fans? Are you in love with Secret Garden too? The smells are intoxicating… aren’t they? Did you know your favorite fragrances of Secret Garden have been reinvented. It’s now VS Fantasies and they’ve even added five new scents. I was lucky enough to be invited to an intimate dinner at the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Hollywood with Victoria’s Secret Angel Candace Swanepoel. Now, I didn’t know how intimate this dinner was going to be and I had never been to the legendary hotel. I had no idea what to expect. As you can…

Torrid’s 10th Birthday Bash

It’s hard to believe Torrid is 10 years old. On Sunday night, I was invited to attend one of their birthday parties at the Brea, California store. After the mall closed, we were allowed in the store to shop, mingle, eat yummy mini-cupcakes, and take photos. There were raffles ( we didn’t win) and music (thanks DJ Dazzler). Ivory and I found a lot of things we loved, but I only bought two rings, which were “Buy One, Get 1/2 Off.” Can’t beat that deal. If you look at the photo below, you’ll see they even had live models on display in the windows.…

Maxi Dress Heaven with City Chic

I’ve already told you I’m obsessed with maxi dresses this season. And this one from City Chic is no exception. I wore this at the opening of the About Face exhibit and I never felt more sexy. Seriously, it’s a va-va-voom dress in the chest area. Meaning, it showed a lot of cleavage. LOL. The dress is no longer available on CityChicOnline.com. Sorry, but there are tons of other pretty dresses. I paired it with gold earrings, a black cascading cardigan, Nine West open-toed pumps, and my new fave Melie Bianco clutch. I wore the dress again on my birthday…
