One of my best girlfriends celebrated her birthday at Barrio Queen (Day of Dead themed Mexican restaurant) and I wore this outfit – took these photos right before we took off to meet her for dinner.
There are two places I’ve been getting orders from online lately, kind of addicted to Mango and H&M. It’s always been H&M lately, though they adjusted their sizing and I’m trying to figure out what my size is there now. I have no problems with a size number but I just want to make sure it’s consistent so I don’t have to do many returns. I just discovered how much I love Mango and spend so much time on their site lately.
I came across this printed bow dress called Gugi and it gives me all the Pucci vibes with the printed scarf that ties into a bow in the back.
Just as much of a statement this dress is from the back, I love bold accessories that complete an outfit.
Now let’s talk about this dress – love it and I’m wearing it again this weekend to another one of my best friend’s wedding rehearsal. It feels like a mullet, business in the front, party in the back, LOL.
This white leather brass cuff from India Hicks is an elegant statement piece and I love her leather clutch, the big zipper clutch in black also comes in taupe. I love how much it holds more than just my cellphone and lip gloss. The thickness of the brass zipper completes the statement.
I remember hearing about building up a closet of timeless pieces which I thought was very hard to do when you’re right out of college, and also furniture too. I just was too busy building and just living within my means. You can’t have it all right away, and so that was important for me to find what worked – although my bedroom furniture has stayed with us so that’s a plus!
It’s nice to finally be here, this place in life and own antiques I’ve purchased for our home, quality furniture, and same goes for my wardrobe – although I did sell a vintage Chanel recently for my office closet, but totally worth it.
