SNEAK PEEK :: Structured Pieces


Oh man, it's been a couple crazy busy days! It's the last week of finals for my last fall semester of grad school and I've been booked back-to-back with events. Throw on the birthday celebrations and holiday parties, it's one of the busiest years yet. No lie. I literally pulled an all-nighter Thursday. Worked on Friday, then went to my little sister's RN graduation (congrats to my poopoobear!), finished my 10 page paper (due by midnight), and made it on time to catch the party bus that very night. Talk about making the impossible, possible right? Now I just have one more paper to finish and then I can finally be on winter break...

In the mean time, enjoy this mini preview of my next outfit post for this week's Tuesday Trend. I know, it's been awhile, so can't wait to finally share the full look with you. Hope you're having a great start to the week and enjoying these last few days of 2013!

EVENT RECAP :: Paint the Town Pink


Remember my VIP fashion giveaway for the Paint the Town Pink event HERE? On this lovely evening, I met up with some of my fab blog readers at Los Cerritos Center for their fashion event to spread breast cancer awareness. As some of you may already know, this is a cause that's very near and dear to my heart and proudly support whenever I can. I've gone to many fashion events but it's different when you go to one with a cause - a purpose, shall I say - with a meaningful message...

On a perfect SoCal evening, I attended the grand opening night of Style Week OC at the Irvine Spectrum with my fellow OC fashion bloggers. The utterly fabulous and hilariously entertaining Nick Verreos from Project Runway did such an amazing job hosting the event.

Outfit :: Fall in the OC


So far, this is what "fall" in OC looks like. Yup. Pretty much like summer except with a little more layers. Usually this type of sheer top would look great with a cutout bralette but since it's slightly colder now, I wore it with a tank top underneath. It's also a good time to bust out those sneaker wedges my friends because - yes - it's still trending this season! Want to see more? Keep reading...

Outfit :: Summertime Sadness


I know it's technically "fall" right now but I must say that I like summer better. The cold weather, people getting sick, and bundling up like an Eskimo is just not my thing. That's probably why I was born in sunny OC during end of spring. It only makes sense right?

FEATURED ON :: Penelope's Vintage + Giveaway Winner


How cool is this surprise? Remember my post about that a-w-e-s-o-m-e vintage store (HERE and HERE)? Yes, that's right, the one about Penelope's Vintage (PV)! I had so much fun with PV store owner (and fellow fashion blogger) Chanelle from The Penelope Times and dressing up in vintage finds. Seriously though, how amazing are all the vintage pieces I'm wearing in the outfits above (outfit details HERE and HERE)? Like I've said many times, I'm not so good at hunting down vintage clothing at thrift places (there's just too much going on every where and I don't have the patience for that). However, I AM good at online shopping (who isn't) and thank goodness for vintage stores like Penelope's Vintage because I can just sit on my comfy bed and click on my favorite vintage items. No hassle necessary - yay-yers!

Outfit :: Short Suit for Hotter Days


Whenever it’s hot outside, I tend to gravitate more towards shorter clothing in lighter fabric materials. You just want to wear almost nothing, you know? This particular day was a prime example of that. Hence my create-one-yourself short suit look.

Have you seen this yet?!? Yours truly is featured on Cliche Magazine's August/September issue as one of their summer street style bloggers - oh my what a great day!

In case you don't know, I'm studying for my Masters degree in social work and this year I got placed at a local hospital. I must admit, I'm pretty excited about it. Who says fashion bloggers can't be stylish AND smart?

Fashion Event :: Simply Stylist Session at the Americana


A couple months ago I got to attend my very first Simply Stylist session at the Americana (YES this is by the same team who puts together that big Simply Stylist event with all those big name bloggers/stylists/celebrities we've heard about). To be honest, I didn't know what to expect but there was going to be a great panel (*ahem* Chriselle Lim!) so I really wanted to check it out. I grabbed a couple of my blogger gals and off to Glendale we went. And to our surprise, it turned out to be quite a beneficial event - one that I recommend anyone in the blogging business to attend, at least once. Why you ask?
