Lace Back Sweater

Lace back sweater (1)

Hi all! I really like the lace pattern on the back of this sweater. It adds femininity to an otherwise boring sweater. It’s the perfect piece to wear in California. The days have been cool in the morning and evening, but relatively warm in the afternoon. So it’s a nice sweater to layer with. I accessorized it with a simple black scarf and an antique locket.

Blue Tones w/ Coral

When I checked my social media feed this morning, everyone seemed to be asking the question: What color is the dress? If you look at the actual Roman Originals dress, it is clearly blue and black. The post in Tumbler showed a slightly different color which raised the fun debate of which color it may be: white/gold or black/blue. I asked my fiancee and he gave me a “huh?!” stare.

Anyways, happy Friday! All Continue reading

White Dress Galore!

With my wedding coming up this year, I’ve been obsessed with white dresses. Although I’ve already purchased both my ceremony and reception dresses, I can’t help but look at others. Even if I’m just looking, I feel a little guilty. It’s like I’m betraying my dresses. Both my dresses are from David’s Bridal. They offer so many types of beautiful dresses at such great price, I couldn’t look anywhere else but there. And the name of the store is pretty cool too. =)

Below are some of the few dresses I’ve been looking at.

I spend some weekends watching “Say Yes To The Dress” marathons. I think it’s pretty fun to see other woman find their dream dresses. I hope you enjoyed my picks! Have a great day!

Simply A Plaid Dress

I know. I know. It’s been a while since my last post. My apologies! The wedding is taking up all my time. Although, I am working on a few post of my DIY stuff to share with you later. So I haven’t completely forgotten about my blog. =]

Today, I am posting a very petite-friendly A-line silhouette dress with a cut-out along the waistline. It’s a high neckline tank dress and makes for a conservative dress for any family affair. I took this piece out Continue reading

Casual With A Kimono

IMG_5744

Hi! Just dropping by to share a quick outfit I wore recently. Kimonos make me feel like I’m wearing a light weight robe, but in a comfortable classy way. I got this one at TJMaxx. I chose to wear the kimono over a black shirt to allow the colors on the kimono to pop. I also tried to stick with a monochromatic look by wearing green bottoms and booties in a different shade of green.

Monochromatic Purple

IMG_5340

Hello! Today I experiment with monochromatic colors. As we shorties all know, wearing one color from head to toe gives the illusion of a taller look. This explains why I look a lot taller and slimmer when I’m in all black. But who wears all black all the time? That’s no fun. I went for a happier color, like purple. My late grandma loved this color, so when I miss her I throw on some purple and it feels like she’s close by.

This Banana Republic cardigan runs big. I am wearing an extra small in petite. The difference I saw with the petite and regular is that the sleeves are longer on the regular size. Even with the petite cardigan, I still have to fold the sleeves up a bit. If you are looking for something that’s fitted, avoid this. The cotton/nylon/viscose material creates a boxy look.

Here are some of my other favorite corduroys:

I don’t wear these floral corduroys often because it’s a bit snug around the waist. I usually fit size 0P at Loft, but the 0P in these were loose around the thighs. The 00P fit better on the legs, so I went with 00P. I always go with the tighter fit because sometimes the material stretches.
