Summer Fling

boohoo-pheobe-woven-low-dipped-back-top

Not one to complain about the eternal Summer weather this side of the planet, but I really planned on re-styling this gorgeous pumpkin-colored BOOHOO top with my over-the-knee boots for a fun night out on the town with my girl squad.

The climate, in general, has been so troubling lately.  My heart and prayers go out to Haiti and those along the Florida coast affected by the devastating Hurricane Matthew.  We here in Southern California are still on “heightened earthquake alert” and advised not to let our guard down as the “big one” is just lurking around the corner (sigh!).

On a brighter note, I am looking forward to wear a Fall-fabulous outfit from STAYING SUMMER next week – so you guys must watch out for it!

Holiday Party Style :: Red Fringes

fashion-mia-glamorous-lapel-tassel-plain-jacket

As a so-called style blogger – one of the many things that would definitely make me happy is when I am able to merge all of my favorite things (not trends!) in a single look.  So count me in as a happy camper when I put together my all-time favorite sweater dress, OTK boots, aviator sunnies and this glamorous fringed faux suede jacket (this one is not lined – so don’t rely on it for warmth) in my signature color which I selected for my repeat collaboration with FASHION MIA - your newest online shopping destination for the best in holiday party style! ♥

Their styles and prices are so on-point for those countless holiday soirees where the goal is to wear a different outfit for each and every event.

Red Lips

cheap-clothes-online

Being in the corporate world for almost half of my life, I have always dressed up according to the demands and expectations of my profession (go figure here!).  That is, until blogging came along.  My personal style, I believe, have greatly evolved since those days of stuffy suits, blazers, power stockings, among others.

But if there’s probably one thing that I won’t ever change – it’s definitely the signature red lips!  I can’t ever imagine myself without it (thanks to my favorite MAC Ruby Woo lipstick and muse Gwen Stefani) that’s why I did not think twice when picking out this stunning off-shoulder sweater for my latest collaboration with FASHION MIA.  Judging by the quality of this sweater I have on – the price point is definitely something to smile about. :-)

Via this post – I would like to thank everyone who participated in the recent GIVEAWAY I hosted for the SUNGLASSES SHOP of U.K.  Congratulations go to Ms. Vero Martinez for winning a classic pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses! ♥

Autumn Basics

wolford-shop-fine-merino-rib-leg-warmers

With fingers crossed, I believe Fall has finally descended upon this tropical paradise we call Southern California.  It’s already been a week of consistently wearing layers and fuzzies and yours truly totally embraced it with open arms!

So via this post – I am bringing to the front burner my basics for a Southern California Fall and possibly Winter.  Topping off the list is a pair of all-season RAY-BAN sunglasses, a front-button A-line mini skirt (this one I’m wearing is not lined and made of very light suede-like material so don’t count on it for warmth), a pair of leg warmers which I used as over-the-knee socks for my fave booties, yes turtlenecks (I got one in every color and print imaginable) will definitely make their presence felt, and that mandatory floppy suede hat.

It has been a very busy weekend for me highlighted (pun intended!) by the biggest hair chop (6 inches y’all! :-) ) I’ve had in years.  I can’t believe I had the guts to finally chop it all off and feel good about it at the same time.

I am also happy to announce that I will be hosting another exciting GIVEAWAY starting Monday, November 16 from SUNGLASSES SHOP - where a spanking new pair of RAY-BAN sunglasses will go to the lucky winner!  I will keep you all posted this week via my social media sites –  FacebookInstagram and Twitter.  ♥

Bows and Leather

vera-wang-faux-leather-leggings

I guess it would totally be an understatement (and too clichè) to say that a pair of faux leather leggings will elevate any look from basic to edgy.  No longer waiting for Los Angeles to get the Fall memo – I finally decided to bring the leather back on a fun girls’ night out last weekend for a pre-Halloween soiree.

Being an eternal sucker for mixing tough with sweet – these faux leather beauty from my favorite Vera Wang line at Kohls is indeed the perfect match to these pretty red suede heels I got from my latest collaboration with CHOIES. ♥
