reflections

Last week I had a nice dinner date in Long Beach at a restaurant called The Attic. I've heard of their famous Mac and Cheetos dish for a while, so I'm glad I can finally cross it off my to-do list. Usually when something has a lot of hype, I am always disappointed. But the verdict is in: Mac and Cheetos was DELICIOUS. It's the perfect combination of crunchy and melt in your mouth cheesey goodness. If you're ever in the Long Beach area, you've gotta try it. I wore this white Nasty Gal romper for the occasion and surprisingly I didn't end up getting red Cheetos stains all over it. I guess I'm somewhat of a lady after all. Anyway, I hope you all enjoy your extended weekend!

Also, congrats Alexandra for winning the Dyer & Jenkins giveaway! You will be receiving an email shortly.

hot and fresh

This week has been the hottest week of summer! I say that practically every week, but this time it's the real deal. I can't bare to put on anything nicer than sandals and barely there tanks. Wax coated denim gives the look a nice touch and the illusion of effort, sort of. While "window" shopping with my sister a few weeks ago, I picked up this cute tank from Foreign Exchange. I have a weakness for graphic tanks and junk food, adding the fact that it was on sale, I had to have it. Window shopping is never really window shopping.

classic black

“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy - but mysterious. But above all black says this: "I don’t bother you - don’t bother me".” -Yohji Yamamoto

This quote resonates with me so much when I get dressed most mornings. Although I do embrace color, most of my staple pieces that last season after season are the colorless pieces. In my opinion, black is the most powerful color and the most empowering color. It's sexy, it's sleek, and the bonus is- it's the easiest color to style. On this day, I had an important meeting and wanted to look polished yet still casual. For me, the winning combo is always skinny jeans + oversized blazer + classic pumps. It's effortless yet you always look put together.
