2011…Almost out the Door…

Are you as stunned as I am that it’s almost 2012? Time flies when you’re blogging. Is that not the saying? Well, it is now! So, I started reflecting on this past year. Thinking about all the amazing people I’ve met, places I was blessed to visit, and the opportunities that came my way. Blogging really has become a creative outlet for me and to be able to blog about what I love is beyond…

Handbag Delight: Rebecca Minkoff

There’s nothing I love more than Rebecca Minkoff Handbags! I adorrrrre! This California native started with apparel in 2001 and designed her first handbag in 2005. It’s been “Handbag Delight” ever since. Today, her collection consists of apparel, handbags, and accessories. I really need to get my butt to one of her sample sales here in L.A. My friend Ivory keeps on telling me to go. OK Ivory, I promise to go to the next…

New Year’s Eve Necklace Inspiration

It doesn’t have to sparkle, but it does have to stand out. When it comes to my New Year’s Eve jewelry, I always lean towards statement pieces. There’s just something about jewelry that does the talking for you. It’s an easy way to dress up a simply chic dress or a way to add a lot of drama to any cocktail dress. Don’t be afraid! Be bold and daring! Do you have your jewelry for…

Christmas Eve Sparkles

 OK…you’re probably sick of me and sequins by now! LOL!! But, to be honest, I’m not. I could probably wear them every day. It’s a sequin addiction!! Maybe it’s just the holidays and maybe it will pass after the new year. We’ll have to wait and see. Until then, this is the outfit I wore on Christmas Eve. Pennington’s sent me their Allover Sequin Tee and I love it. The only issue I have with…

Hi my loves! I hope you all had a beautiful Christmas. I really had an amazing weekend. And now that Christmas has come and gone, it’s time to start thinking about New Year’s Eve.

Well, if you’re planning to attend a formal event here are a few gowns…

Beauty Buzz: Suave’s Dry Shampoo

This is going to be a short and sweet “Beauty Buzz.” There’s no sugar coating when I’ve found a product I love. I was gifted a small sample can of Suave’s Dry Shampoo at the Two Point Oh L.A. Snowball. I’ve heard all the stories about dry shampoo and even wrote a small post about a certain brand’s new line. But, this is the first time I’ve actually used it. I was supposed to meet…

Comfy & Warm Knits

It’s official my loves! Today is the first day of winter. Well…it’s almost 70 degrees here in L.A., so I’m not really experiencing a chilly winter day. I swear I’m not bragging! I love the cold weather and I wish I could trade you, that way I can wear these warm and comfy knits. These also come in handy if you’re traveling this holiday season. OK…I’m ready to house swap with someone who has snow…

The Shopping Diaries: Shopping Discrimination Continues…

Update: On 12/22/11 I spoke with the manager on duty at this Macy’s location. I explained my experience. He was very kind, understanding, and sincerely apologized. We chatted a bit about it and he said he would definitely speak with the associate. I hope he does and she learns from the incident. There’s no room for size/shopping discrimination. I’ll let my $$$ speak for me from here on out. I’ve worked many years in the…

Get “Dress”ed with Ashley Stewart

Hey ladies! When was the last time you took a second to shop for dresses at Ashley Stewart? I was just in there the other day and if I wasn’t in such a big hurry I definitely would’ve tried some of them on. I already own their navy blue 10-way dress, but I’m secretly coveting this red one below. I’m a sucker for a red dress. This is a reminder to wear this color more often.…

Torrid and my Sequin Obsession

Will the obsession ever end? Really? Yes, more sequins and lots of sparkle. I wore this outfit for my dad’s 60th birthday party and I felt sassy. LOL! I did! Torrid’s Black Mesh Sequin Front Tank Top immediately caught my eye and I had to have it. The front is sheer, but adorned with sequins and beading. I love this top! I will admit this is my second time wearing it. I wore it to…

‘All I want for Christmas’ is Rachel Roy Jewelry

Surprise, Surprise…I still haven’t done any Christmas shopping. I’m going to be hating myself in a few days. But, for now, I will continue to think about what I need to add to my gift list. Like, this jewelry from the Rachel Roy line. I’ve written about her before and I will admit some of the designs are “hit or a miss.” The pieces below are a definite hit in my book. I can see…
