Please pardon another cheesy blog title! Do you all remember the song Oppa Gangham Style that became an internet craze a few years ago? It just came to mind while I was thinking of a title for this post and I remembered the craziness that surrounded the song and the dance moves.
Anyway, this Kate Spade Gingham Dress is 60% off! I don’t own a lot of ginghams. In fact, this is probably the only one in my closet. But I know I will keep this for years to come. First of all, this dress has pockets! Yes, ladies, this dress has pockets!!! One on each side. Don’t we just love dresses with pockets? Makes your lipstick, cellphone, and powder easier to access. Personally, these stuff get easily lost in the mess of my big handbag, so I prefer dresses with pockets. Unfortunately, not too many have them. But those dresses that have them are treasures. For real. Not too many sizes are still available so snag one if you see your size. … View Post
One of the most exciting things for me after being engaged is planning our wedding. There’s a lot of things involved in it and it can be stressful at times but it’s still fun. It’s definitely a journey and part of my journey to becoming a “Mrs” is finding “the dress”.
For a lot of brides, including myself, this is a big task. It’s a mission and it’s quite challenging to find the dress that you love within your budget. Let’s get real brides and future brides…budget is the second thing you must set after setting the wedding date.
I chose to document and share with you guys this journey because my blog is sort of my online diary and you guys, my readers, are a huge part of it, so hopefully you enjoy all my engagement and wedding-related posts.… View Post
Happy Friday Guys! We made it to the weekend again, woohooo! I don’t know about you but I really need some 48 hours to forever downtime. I’ve been practically running on 4-5 hour sleep the past week or so and I feel that my body is drained of energy. I’m in the final stretches (I think!) of putting together the elements of our wedding. Once that’s done, I can take a little breather. Who knew that takes so much time and energy?
Anyway, the pieces of this outfit are a little contradicting to each other. Faux fur vest, beanie hat, turtle neck, and then open-toe sandals? Well, that’s kinda what Houston fall weather has been since it started. We have about an hour of fall in the morning and another hour at night when it’s safe to wear a light sweater or so and then in the middle of the day, it’s back to 90 degrees. It’s quite confusing to say the least…I be like “Weather, make up your mind, yeah?!” Wearing this outfit though at least makes me feel like I’m in New York! … View Post
After a year of dating my fiancé and being engaged to him for the past 4 months, I think it is safe to say that I am now hooked on football! So now my passions are food, fashion, and football! My fiancé is the biggest sports fan but football is definitely his favorite. Since the season started, we’ve been doing nothing but watch football games on the weekends.
This past weekend, instead of our usual of watching the game at a sports club, we decided to do some outdoor grilling with some of our friends. It’s #GameTimeGrilling baby!
Now, I can’t cook jack! But thanks to my man who knows how to grill and cook! … View Post
It’s Friday y’all! We made it! I’m sure that many of you have been waiting for the weekend to come and it seemed like foreverto get here for some reason. At least that’s how I felt.
And did someone say that it’s the end of September already?! I am seriously amazed at how time goes by. So many things to do with so little time. I’m sort of panicking! Eeeek. The holidays, my cousin’s wedding in Florida, and my own wedding are just around the corner and I feel that there’s a lot of things to do. The holidays and special occasions can sure add a lot of stress and pressure but I’m so looking forward to them.
Meanwhile, how about them ikat prints? This dress is from the summer collection of Velvet Heart I believe and it’s become another favorite of mine. It’s not flattering by all means but it’s cute and comfortable, and quite honestly, that’s what I’m all about these days. I think that every woman should have pieces in her closet that are easy to get into! These type of items are definitely time savers. Just slip it on, wear booties, put a top knot on and voila! For those married, you will definitely make your hubby happy with easy-to-style pull-over dresses. Ha! Less waiting time for them while you’re getting ready. Oh and the fact that it’s a chambray dress is a major plus! … View Post
If you’re following me on Instagram, you’d know that I visited Dallas, along with a few other bloggers, to tour the city and see what they have to offer, more than a week ago. We also had a chance to go shopping at Northpark Center and guess what? Some of the items I purchased are on this look! I mostly went shopping at Nordstrom just because it’s a one-stop shop for me. I am a girl but I don’t like shopping that much when I’d have to go from one store to another so a store like Nordstrom, having everything, is a win!
Anyway, this is a casual chic date night look that anyone can sport – whatever body type you have. Ladies, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black skinny jeans! Wearing it is flattering and makes you look and feel sexy without trying too hard. And here’s a piece of unsolicited advice: Every now and then, you don’t have to show your curves. Make your date “crave” for it every now and then. Meaning, make it a mystery. Don’t always show it, if you know what I’m saying! You can do that by doing this look. I promise you, your man will appreciate the mystery without him even knowing it. *Wink*… View Post
Happy official second day of Fall guys! I know many of you are thrilled to have cooler weather! I heard that we are going to get a cool front next week. But before that, a storm on Sunday.
I’m slowly transitioning to fall fashion by wearing a lot of boho-style dresses and booties. I found some affordable ones from Amazon.com. If you noticed, I’ve been shopping a lot at Amazon.com. I am currently subscribed to Prime and I found that it’s the best way to maximize shopping at Amazon to save on shipping costs since I at least shop a few times a month from the site. I didn’t pay the whole year but I’m doing the $9.99/month, which is in my opinion, totally worth it.… View Post
