You Stud, You!

Necklace: borrowed (similar here
Shoes: Valentino

I finally scored the elusive Valentino Rockstud pumps for more than half off during Moda Operandi's huge, huge sale!!! I've also been dying to wear this Thakoon Addition vest/dress that I wore here and here, only this time as a dress. Can't wait to use, use and re-use these pumps until they fall apart! Happy hump day all...a few more days and we'll be over the hill to enjoy the weekend.

Crème De La Crème

Shirt: Markus Lupfer (also similar here and here)
Pants: BCBG Max Azria (similar here and here)
Shoes: Manolo Blahnik

I've been fighting this gnarly cold that I got over the weekend, but I managed to get a shot of what I wore to church on Sunday. It's been a while since I've worn these BCBG cream-colored wide leg trousers so I decided to pair it with white and a little bit of color. Hope you like!

High Low

Dress: Forever21
Vest: Brandy Melville - similar here
Necklace: borrowed - similar here
Booties: Black Poppy via PacSun (old) - similar here and here
Shades: Miu Miu
Watch: Michael Kors

As I mentioned in my last post, I was stuck in a fashion rut. I've been relying too much on my comfort zone with pants so today I decided to switch it up with a dress. Errrr....more like an oversized tank if you ask me! I like the A. Wang slash Helmut Lang vibe I get from it. But at a very affordable price. I'm also trying to accessorize more since I tend to stick with practically nothing. As I'm writing this I'm realizing that I could've stepped it up a notch and layered more necklaces or perhaps get an arm party going. I guess overall I'm trying to think outside of the box. So bare with me! 

On another note, I checked out 'The Internship' last week. It gave some great laughs, but it also had an awesome soundtrack. Here's B.o.B's "So Good" - which my life will be once I'm reunited with my love (soon I hope!). In the meantime, enjoy this cheery tune:

Have a wonderful weekend all!

Easy Peasy, Lemon Squeezy

Top: Forever 21 (old) - similar here
Jacket: Hollister (old)
Jeans: Joe's Jeans (old) - similar here
Hat: BDG
Shoes: Charles David

This week has been thankfully mild as far as weather goes. My problem with picking what to wear in the morning is although it may get warm during the day, it's super cold in the office. They crank up the AC regardless of the weather outside. So I'm left with no choice but to wear light layers or bring a light jacket to work. Today I opted for a super thin and sheer blouse that I stole from my sister's closet - one of the many perks of having two younger sisters! I've been a little uninspired lately so anything loose and comfortable are my go-to's. I think I want need to regroup; maybe sit down and take some time to gather some fashion inspiration or go buy some magazines. How do you fellow bloggers find the time to do all this and more?

Red Hot

 Top: Pull & Bear 
Jeans: AE  (wouldn't mind these)
Shoes: Casadei (old)
Purse: Louis Vuitton
Watch: Michael Kors
Shades: Ray-Ban

Did everyone have a nice weekend? It's been blistering hot here in NorCal so I wanted to keep it simple with a tee and jeans. I have yet another busy week ahead of me at work, so I want to wish everyone a wonderful, wonderful week! Stay cool.

Mirror, Mirror

Top: Céline (similar here and here)  // Pants: J Brand (similar here and here)  // Shoes: Casadei (old) // Purse: Louis Vuitton // Shades: no name brand (can't go wrong with these though!)

I've been swamped at work and trying to get back into the grind, so please excuse my absence! On a more fashion related note, mirrored sunnies seem to be the fashion commodity lately. So imagine my excitement when my girlfriend (and photographer) pulled up my driveway wearing some! I immediately asked to borrow them for today's ensemble. I'm pretty bummed that it slipped my mind to cop a pair while I was in Mexico; they have amazing, amazing flea markets over there. Nonetheless, I'm determined to find me a pair. This weekend I'm going to try my luck with those sunglass-vendor-cart things that sit in the middle of the mall. Unless you guys have better suggestions as to where I can find me a budget friendly pair. Anyone?

The Blues

Top: Zara (check this one out) // Jeans: Free People (old) // Belt: H&M // Wallet: Prada // Shoes: Jimmy Choo // Watch: Michael Kors

Happy Monday All! This Zara denim top was another acquired item during my stay in Mexico. Looks like I'm working my way down this list. I wanted to stick to the theme of blues (since I'm missing my love terribly) so I finished this ensemble with my turquoise Choos - I figured if I did a denim or navy bottom it would be blue overload. Anyway, I have a pretty busy Monday in the lab so I'll cut this short. Have a good one!
