Violettes Flowers Grand Opening!


First off, let me apologize for my lack of posting. This past month has been a bit hectic for me. Although it was stressful, it was a good type of hectic that I can only hope will continue. Please accept this post with pretty little floral pictures (below) as my formal apology and peace offering. 

This past weekend was a great milestone for a friend - she opened up a store front for her floral business. I can say firsthand that she has been working hard towards this day, and not without any obstacles of course. But the day had finally come and of course, the celebrating commenced with her family and friends. Her store was decked out with pretty arrangements from succulents, to floral crowns, and some great fall decor! I have snips and pieces of her shop, but if you want to see the cuteness in its entirety, I would recommend checking Violette's Flowers out yourself (and do not leave here without her information)!

Check out her pages and book her before it's too late!

Vintage Pop-Up Shop!


Hi All!

There will be a vintage pop-up shop on September 21st, from 2-6pm. Yours truly will be there to discuss my tips and tricks to thrifting and how I style vintage. Come check it out if you find yourself free. It is also 100x more worth it to check it out because it is a charity event, raising funds for Camp  Crescent Moon, a camp for kids with sickle cell anemia. Shop for a cause. :)

Address
1827 Main St.
Los Angeles, CA 90015

Fashion District Mini Haul


It seems as though many mini hauls have been occurring recently... Yuh-oh for the wallet, but Yahoo for my wardrobe! Here are a few things I picked up at the Fashion District this past weekend. I love walking through the alleyways and finding things I would not have expected to find, and at such a great price. It also does not hurt to smell yummy street hotdogs every few vendors down. I love that type of mini hustle and bustle environment, where all type of goods are being sold in one general location.

Check out the great prices below, and let me know if you have any questions about the DTLA Fashion District. I am here to share. :)

Printed Kimono $6
 Faux Leather Tee $5
 Made In California Tank $4
 Crochet Tank $6
 Sticker Nails $1 
(Tip: Sticker nails retail at $8-10, so much worth it at the fashion district!)
 


Total - $22
Average per item -  $4.40

Shoe Spotlight: The STS


Since receiving these for my birthday, I have yet to style them for you all. These beauts were actually in a hold-up for quite sometime now, and I finally got them back into my loving arms - Yes, I am aware I sound like a crazy shoe lady :) 

It is a great feeling when you have a birthday wishlist and actually get what you listed (wishlist post here). I have my baby sister to thank for these! I am excited to show you how I would style these - posts coming soon.

Although these are some pretty darn sexy shoes, let's be real, they are a bit hard to get into! Even with a zipper in the back, the straps sort of get in the way when you try to slip them on. But you know what? #thestruggleisreal and #iloveit

The STS are no longer being sold on Steve Madden, but you can purchase them here.

The Golden Jaguar


Had a fun day shopping at the fashion district, brunching with some friends, and just cruising around downtown Los Angeles. I have a mini haul that should be up after this post. If you are from the Los Angeles area, I highly recommend checking out the downtown fashion district for some great deals! I have said it before, but I'll say it again, it is SO worth it. :)

Testing out a different camera, so bare with me.Wearing lots of gold and black this day, which might I add, is such a beautifully, classic combination. It is uber hot these days, so of course I had to go with minimal clothing and a hat to shield from the sun. Outfit details at the end, per usual!

LT50
Hat - Gifted
Tank - $12
Shorts - $7
Heels - $8
Jewelry - DIY
Total $27

Dress For Less Ross Mini Haul



By now, you all must know I love shopping at affordable places. If it's not thrifted, then it is highly reduced on sale OR it's Ross! I cannot express how much I love Ross and all the great deals I have found there. Almost every item I have purchased from Ross has gotten me a compliment, and each time, the compliment-er says they must check Ross out. This makes me believe that a lot of you still do not see the wonders in Ross, so check it out! Okay, I will stop with my pro-Ross brainwashing banter. :)

A tip I would suggest at Ross? If you feel overwhelmed there, then just check out the small area of sale items for each rack category, for a quicker and much more satisfying shopping experience. I always hit those sections first to find the EVEN more reduced items, and I always find something I would wear religiously.

Enjoy my mini-haul and I would love to know if you share the same love for Ross as I do!

Yes, Weekend Tank $8

Scalloped Shorts$7
Printed Lazy Pants $8
Lazy Pants #2 $9
Sam Edelman Booties $35

Total - $67
Average per item - $13.40
