Folle de Joie

One of my favorite fashion labels, Joie, has come out with their first perfume!  Its light and fresh, perfect for spring and summer. I love almost every clothing article they make, so I bought the perfume blindly when I found out, without even testing it!  It literally smells exactly like I imagined their clothing line would be-translated to a fragrance.  Not to mention the bottle is simply stunning.  I couldn't wait to wear it out with the girls!

Amalfi dreams

The weather has been warming up here in LA and has me dreaming of vacation time!  The Amalfi coast in Italy is on my European vacation hit list...it is so beautiful and the views and scenery are breathtaking.  My dream is to stay in the Sirenuse hotel in Positano.  If I could sum up my ideal coastal getaway in pictures, here it is!  I hope all my dreams come true :)

where is your dream vacation?

Gettin' Nautical

Obsessed with anchors lately for some reason.  I was coveting a teensy tiny diamond and gold anchor pendant necklace from Nordstrom for the longest time.  It was definitely out of my price range so I had to distract myself somehow.  Turns out I fell (almost) equally in love with a $6 pair of tiny gold-tone anchor studs from Urban Outfitters.  See what happens when you learn to control impulse buys!  

Also I am getting a husky puppy dog in the near future and am naming him Sailor.  I don't know if that is why I am subconsciously drawn to all things nautical, or if his name was a product of my existing anchor fixation.  Which came first: the anchor or the sailor?

While I figure that out,
Come sail away!

My Little Photoshoot

My outfit today!  And it's cheap (except for the accessories).  I have a weakness for designer accessories -eek!  I find the cutest outfits are always a mix of low and high end.  I like to sneak some budget fashion jewelry into an otherwise expensive outfit or vice versa.  Sometimes I go head to toe forever 21 with chic handbag or sunglasses!  No one can ever tell the rest of your outfit is thrifty if you wear at least one nice item :).  Here is me and my outfit having fun with my new camera app on my phone.  I tinted all the pics! Enjoy
