IN THE QUEST FOR THE PERFECT FALL BOOTIES

For some reason, majority of ankle booties tend to look cheapish because of their patent, wooden heels. Anyone feel me on this? It's incredibly difficult to come across a pair I like, and when I do, they're always beyond my price range...

This is the style I'm sorta looking for. $198 from Madewell.
However, I would prefer a pair that is round toed than pointy, and half the listed price.

If I can't a decent western style ankle boots somewhat like the one shown above, I might just settle for these.

SPRING!

Yum! Today's dinner: veggie stir-fry w/ sriracha sauce :) totally unintentional, but the vibrant colors from this dish fit perfectly with my spring centered post.

Yes it's officially spring! I hope it gets warmer because 63 degrees in SoCal is like snow for me haha.

Here are a few pieces I will be wearing for spring 2012:

my knit orange cocoon cardigan. it screams 'spring' but i will probably wear it all 4 seasons cause I love it so much
close up: love the details :)
i've had this GAP camisole for almost 5 years now. floral prints+dark colors: oxymoron?
ruffles
I haven't worn this last piece out ever since I got it from Levi's many months ago. I will find a perfect outfit for this sucker.

Happy Spring Everyone :)

No more excuses. I will start blogging today.

Dolce Vita Pali

Pleather, leather, or whatever material they are made of, these Dolce Vita wedges are the ideal "casual" wedge. They aren't too fancy-shmancy that are restricted only for special occasions, and they aren't the 5 inch heels you need to elongate your legs for clubbing. 
They simply look best with a pair of skinny jeans paired with virtually anything you wear on top.

a bit dusty from not wearing them for ~5 mo.

Steve Madden Troopa

I got these Steve Madden Troopa 1.5 years ago as my 20th birthday present from my bestfriend. Since then, I wore these like crazyyy. For the amount I wore them they are in considerably great condition. 
They were black when I first got them, but after some wear and tear they turned a little brown? 
I think I like them even more now that they are distressed; lace-ups boots look better that way.  

scratches in the front from all the wear and tear

Wildfox Couture

Wildfox, why are you so expensive? 

Wildfox carries vintage looking, soft and oversized sweatshirts with cute prints on the front. These sweatshirts go for $108.00/ea. Some exclusive ones are $200+
I typically wouldn't spend that much on a "sweatshirt," but I this particular one I just had to get.


sleeves rolled up

This is probably the only graphic shirt from my entire wardrobe. Idk, makes feel pretty cool every time I wear it har har har

UGG Dakota

My boyfriend got me these UGG moccasins as a gift 2 Christmases ago. I love them. They are so comfortable, and the fur inside is still nice and fuzzy even after a year + few months of wear.
These are in the color pewter btw. 




Yesterday, my boyfriend and I did about 5 loads of laundry. While we were folding our freshly dried clothes, we found a baby's shirt that got into our bundle, probably left behind from a stranger who used the dryer before us.
I thought it be perfect for my dog!

It is kinda loose around the waist area, but he looks so adore! The shirt is patched with some cartoon animal, and sky blue is such a good color on him :)

TOMS Cordones

I used to be a huge Toms fanatic, and owned up to 6 pairs (I have 5 now because I gave one to my sister). At a point in time, I realized I should start buying other variety of shoes, and stopped widening my collection. I still think Toms are super comfortable and cute; to me they are the best casual shoes.

Out of all the different styles of TOMS I own, cordones is by far my favorite. It kinda has an oxford feel to it and looks much more refined than the canvas style. They come with laces but I prefer wearing them without the laces. Unlike the original canvas, the cordones is made with much nicer and long-lasting material. Therefore, they are pricer, selling at $69 as opposed to $43 for canvas, but you won't regret dishing out a little more for quality.
This is my very first pair of Toms. I've had them for over 2 years and worn them a countless number of times, yet they are still in pretty shape. *Round of applause*


2nd pair of cordones I got around 6 months ago. These go with virtually everything


Clif Bar: White Chocolate Macadamia Nut

These Clif Bars are delicious!! I've tried other flavors like peanut butter (YUCK) and chocolate almond fudge, but they don't compare to white chocolate macadamia nut.
They were on sale at Ralphs for $1/ea, so I bought close to a box worth and even took a box :)
They are 250 calories per bar, which I don't think is much compared to calories in cookies, cupcakes, chips, donuts, other junk we eat on a normal base. It is rather a healthier alternative to junk food.

I'm eating one as we speak!

H&M

I'm all for quality over quantity. I'd rather spend a little more on something that's made with nicer material than cheap out. When it comes to bags on the other hand, the price for top quality skyrockets (most of my dream handbags range from $800-$2000) 
After I graduate and find a stable career, I will be able to afford Balenciaga, Chanel, Hermes, Celine, Prada, etc. Until then, there are alternatives. 

Recently H&M has been coming out with trendy, good quality, and most importantly, affordable bags.

$24.95 + tax. 
My boyfriend got this for me. It's very cute. I use it mostly as a school bag cause it fits everything I need: notebook, folder, wallet, water bottle, snacks, etc..

also $24.95 + tax
My mom bought this bag for me couple days ago as a little Valentines Day present :) We live separately so I don't have it with me at this moment. Basically I discovered this bag on HM.com, and told my sister to get it for me the next time she goes to H&M cause I couldn't find it at my local store. My mom and my sister went to the the mall the other day and found this bag, so my lovely mother decided to get it for me. I really adore the simplicity of this bag- must go pick it up soon!

Clarks Desert Boots

Word of advice: Clarks run HUGE

Over the summer I was at Glendale Galleria mall, which happened to have a Clarks store. I wanted Clarks for awhile, but was iffy about the sizing. I went in and tried on the women's 6, the smallest size, and it ran a size and a half too big..
I still wanted them so I resorted to kid sizes=
Size 4: too big
Size 3.5: still too big
Size 3: meh, okay, but still kinda roomy
Size 2.5: PERFECT
Size 2: snug

So yes, I was a true pain in the ass customer who tried on like 10 pairs. I ended up leaving the store with these taupe, 2.5 sized desert boots, and the rest is history. 


The comfiest sole!

Awesome quality, and they were actually cheaper since they were from the kids' section.
Hmm..maybe I'll wear these tomorrow :)
