Mango Event

This event was so much fun! What's more better than drinking and shopping at the same time? Anyway, Britt&Whit hosted this event at Mango.  We were able to pick an outfit in the store and three people can win for the best outfit.  What do you know; I was one of the lucky winners!!!  My first outfit was the black sequined dress and it was backless, but I don’t have a picture to show you on how sexy it was.  I decided to do another outfit with the red lace dress because a lot of ladies picked the same dress.  Sorry, my camera died so most of these pictures were taken with an Iphone.

All Layered

Outfit Details
Fur Vest & Blouse- JCPenney (here)
Stripe Top - H&M
Sunnies - MANGO
Happy Monday to all! Just a quick outfit post. I wore this last Friday, so a very late post. I manage to take a couple pictures before going to work right at the parking lot! It looks sunny, but oh boy it was pretty windy in San Francisco.  Which I don't mind at all as long as there's sun.  I have been looking for a fur vest, and I think I will stick with this one, and I also managed to grab the H&M white fur vest for $14.95! Anyway, this one I have on actually has pockets, and can be worn open or closed which I also like. Well, I will post an event with Mango that I participated in soon. Hope you all have a lovely evening.

Thank you for all your comments! I truly appreciate them and can't wait to read your blogs for more inspirations.

Fall Leaves

 Outfit Details:
Sweater - ModCloth (last year)
Tunic Dress - Gifted
Leggings - H&M
Boots - Seychelles

Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving. As for me, I sure stuffed myself with so much turkey and all the good stuff like pies during my long weekend.  Finally got to take pictures with my fall leaves!  I love the colors of the leaves this time of year, they are just so perfect. 

So, how many did the Black Friday this year? I did, but I wasn't going to because of all the crazy situations last year.  Didn't really do much shopping for myself, really wanted to get all the 12 kids off the list.  Yes, my darling daughter has 12 cousins! So crazy, but they are all fun! And yes, I managed to finish buying all 10 kids presents. Will do the older ones later. Even wrapped them up the next day! Usually I wrap them up Christmas Eve which gets too hectic for me. So decided to do them early this year...haha!

Tribal & Mixed Prints

Outfit Details:
Outfit 1 - Cardigan - Forever 21 (click here)
Snakeskin Dress - H&M ($17.95)
Boots - Rampage (last year)

Outfit 2 - Same  Cardigan
Faux Suede Leggings - H&M ($14.95)

Hello to all my lovely readers! Just bought this cardigan yesterday and I love it.  It is so comfy and I usually don't go for prints like this, but I needed something different in my closet so thought I'd try it out with my outfits at home. What do you all think? I also love my new pair of faux suede leggings for $14.95! They are so comfy and I think everyone should own one.

BTW - Sorry for the second outfit pictures.  I know they are really bright only because they were taken this morning and the sun was shining on top of me.  But gotta say it was a gorgeous morning!

Happy Hump Day!

Everyday A Friday

How is everyone’s week so far? 

As for me I was always thinking a day ahead, but to my surprise it’s not Friday yet.  But I do remember a wise owl told me a while back, to make everyday a Friday.  Which is a good positive way of thinking, because don’t we feel happy on Fridays?  The workweek is ending and we look forward to having some time for ourselves or being with our loved ones.  So why not make every day a Friday?!

Anyway, I just wanted to share my new fur to all my lovely readers.  We are totally going into fur madness this season, but I am not fully comfortable in wearing all fur just yet.  So to slowly ease that transition, I bought this gorgeous reddish fur wrap from H&M for only $17.95!  I am still trying to find a fur vest that I can cherish and wear because they are so versatile.  My jacket is made by Tulle and was thrifted from my local thrift shop for $12!!!

Thank you to everyone for all the lovely comments that was left in my last post! I really appreciate and read each one of them! Hope you all have a lovely day!

Top & Lace Skirt - Forever 21, similar here
Loafer – Steve Madden (Thrifted)

Hello lovelies!

I can’t believe the great weather we are having in San Francisco.  Well, there has been some light rain Saturday but other than that, I’m loving every moment!  It is very cool and crisp, and definitely time to bring out the sweater dresses and boots!  I also can’t wait for the Starbuck’s Caramel Brulee!  Anyway, I have been finding some great sale and this great peacoat is one of them.  When Old Navy had their 75% off everything, I was able to snatch this baby up.  I love the color and the style.  I am a coat lover and I have kept so many in the past.  I don’t know I just can’t give them up.  Any of you ever feel that way about coats.  

Last but definitely not least, b.f. surprised me when I got home yesterday by bringing out the Christmas decors!!! Can't wait to show some to you all.
Hope you all have a lovely Monday!

PS. Check out what I found while thrifting last month...
I think it's the most cutest thing ever and can't wait to wear it!

Oh Halloween!

Costume - 50's Girl (2 yrs ago!)
Fur Bag - H&M (borrowed)
Knee High - Forever 21
Twinkle Toes - GAP (last year)
Soldier Costume - Target
Mr. Boffle Bag - Was mine.. about 20 years ago!

Decided to dress up last minute with something I bought years back. During the past I have been Storm from X-men, Alice, Nurse and a Pirate. I am usually into Halloween and love to decorate my place and my work cube. But I have been so busy this month that I didn’t even have time to enjoy that much Halloween festivities. I still decided to wear a costume to work, and as soon as I got dressed, I suddenly felt a little Halloween spirit inside. My little soldier and her (9!) cousins said this at the end of the night: "This was the best day ever!"

 Hope you all had a Happy Halloween!!!

At work.

Plaid Day - October 7

Outfit Details:
Rust/Orange Pants and Belt - Zara
Plaid Blazer - Thrifted ($8!)
Bird Cardi & Bow Shirt - Forever 21

Last Friday was another sunny day in SF. There was a blog that I read and stated Oct. 7th to be plaid day.  So, this blazer was the only thing I can find close to plaid. Funny thing is, I did see some people wearing them. I'm not sure if they knew or if they just happened to wear them that day. Anyway, I love the color of these pants and so far my favorite! I wore them on the 1st Day of Autumn, and got so many compliments.  (Sorry forgot to take my badge off for the pictures..haha!)

Took a stroll down to Union Square. Had brunch with my lovely friend at Cafe Bellini. Decided to get a glass of mimosa and strawberry crepe. We sat outside and my friend said everyone that stopped and gazed at my plate went inside..haha! Who wouldn't?

Craving sweet? It doesn’t get any better than this!

Baby Doll Dresses

Outfit Details:
Dress & Heart Necklace- H&M
Boots - Rampage (last year)
Watch - Michael Kors (bday gift!)
Ring - Forever 21
Bag - Cynthia Rowley

Happy Monday! Wore this last week to work. It was such a sunny work week for San Francisco and I hope to see more this week.  Anyway, I am really loving the baby doll dresses right now. They are so comfy and I already have number of ways to wear them. I think I'm going to buy the red one this week!

How are you liking the red-ish lips? It still pretty new for me, but I'm getting used to them. I think red lips are very classy and reminds me of the retro days. 

Took these pictures near an art museum by my work in San Francisco. Do you see the cube building? I have never seen that until this day. It looks pretty awesome!

Raise Your Glasses

 Outfit Details:
Sweater - Thrifted
Floral Ruffle Top - TJ Maxx
Jacket - Guess
Small bag - Vintage Dooney & Burke
Laced Up Boots - Seychelles

These pictures were taken a while back. I forgot to post it up on my blog. This is our famous Bay Bridge. I wore this outfit to go to my very first vodka tasting. Never knew there was such a thing around the Bay Area.  We started pretty early, ate breakfast, had some great mimosas and walked to the Ferry Building to catch a boat to get to Hangar One where the vodka tastings happens.  Not very far from San Francisco but we didn't want to drive, so we took the ferry boat. Didn't know they closed some streets once a month so people can just walk or take their bikes out.  The weather was muggy and rained on and off during this day. But I had such a great time. Got kind of sick from drinking way too fast. Plus, I'm not sure if you know, but you're not supposed to mix light and dark alcohol together!

Well, hope you all enjoy the pictures. Thank you for visiting! 

Cheers - Glasses of Mimosas.
