Presents for Christmas!

I always get quite sad the day after Christmas, simply because it’s over. Not the day, but the entire season. The buildup is what makes it the best time of year, Christmas Eve being my absolute favorite day. Christmas Eve is like the ultimate day of anticipation. Even though I get sad, I just have to keep reminding myself that it will come again next year. Still, the season just always ends way too soon. I wish it could be December 1st through the 25th forever. Even though I have to move on with regular life, I’m so grateful for having…

Saving & Splurging: Fashion Edition

Adorable Booties Fab Leather Jacket Gold Leaf Necklace Shift Dress Cozy Cardi Classic Tee The Perfect Jeans As soon as winter rolls around and holiday shopping rapidly approaches, I always find myself getting sucked into the sales and being tempted to spend waaaaay too much money.

With every shopping temptation comes the question – should I splurge on this or should I save my money? I have some general rules I personally use to make the smartest shopping decisions possible,…

Happy Halloween, Bitches.

Happy Halloweekend, lovelies! I cannot believe Halloween and October are already over! (53 days until Christmas, by the way.) Halloween felt very different this year. I think part of the problem was that I didn’t visit a Halloween store at all during October, and somehow an awkward visit to Spirit to peruse the creepy masks and typical Halloween costumes always makes me feel like, YES, it’s actually Halloween. I think things like this happen a lot as you get older, though. The feeling of certain holidays or events tend to shift and morph into something else. Things mean something different to you as…

Wild at the Wear-House

This weekend I hopped on over to a poppin’ warehouse sale downtown, courtesy of The Trend Boutique. It was my first warehouse sale ever (excited?!), and it was on the rooftop of a sketchy building reached via a very questionable elevator. Think Tower of Terror at Cali Adventure. They served classy little mimosas with cute cups of a candy medley for customers to sip/snack on while they shopped. The rooftop view overlooking LA was absolutely gorg. Buuuuut my favorite part?! The discounts were ridiculous. The effort it took to rummage through everything was well worth it for the saved cash. There was also something about perusing racks…

Summer in Stripes

I have this thing where my entire closet consists of about 4 colors and 3 patterns. One of which is stripes. I loooove black and white stripes. Today’s look was ideal for a typical Saturday of brunch and errands because it’s cute enough for brunch, but comfortable enough for errands. AKA the best of both worlds. It’s so easy to pull together because it consists of basic, staple pieces in every girl’s closet, and it’s super cheap – win!  I’m all about simple when it comes to my outfits, and this is about as simple as it gets! Striped T-Shirt Dress: I got…
