I used to be an impulsive shopper but now I’ve become savvy enough to buy less with better quality. My closet is still overflowing with a bunch of clothes I’m saving for……uh, special occasions like dates and fancy parties. The problem is I keep buying clothes for dressy events and not for everyday wear. So I’ve decided to buy clothes that can be versatile enough for a trip to the grocery store and for the after work party at a fancy lounge. And no, this dress is definitely not for the grocery store trip. Let me tell you why I love this Keepsake wide awake dress and why I bought it as soon as it I saw it.
1) It’s navy. I have enough black in my closet so it’s a welcome addition.
2) Sheer lace and ruffles! If you saw my post yesterday, you’ll know why.
3) The cute factor. This dress is just screaming for compliments from random strangers.
4) I know I’m not going to get bored easily in this dress. I mean look at those sleeves!
5) The cure for date night woes. You know when you’re spending 2 hours before a date deciding what to wear? Every girl wants to choose something that is classy and pretty and this dress is the answer.

Being a hopeless romantic girl with no one to be romantic with can feel a bit hopeless (Did you see what I did there?). So I tend to wear clothing that makes me feel romantic which in my case, it means lace, silk, ruffles, and white dresses. I can never get tired of wearing a white dress or a romper with ruffles all over them. So when I was shopping at Zara today and saw this shirt called “Romantic”, I immediately put it in my cart. It has all the elements of making you feel romantic when you put it on. It’s a perfect little top to wear it to a date or when you feeling particularly alone, you can be romantic in this Zara shirt. So grab some red lipstick, put some sandals on and go to a cute little cafe with this top on, and maybe you will catch someone’s attention and come back not so hopeless afterall. Or you can be completely content just wearing this fabulous top just having the time of your life. This is the kind of top you don’t regret buying and I’m glad it’s in my closet to help me feel romantic whenever I want.

Sometimes when I look at my calendar, I feel appalled that it’s already July. There are so many projects I have on my hands and so many tasks and so many emails, and errands to run…life can become kind of a blur when you’re busy. Thankfully, it’s summer and I’m enjoying some free time while taking lots of naps and shopping in between. Speaking of shopping, it’s a good time to update your look with some bright accessories and a bold colored printed dress. One of my favorite things to buy in the summer is a cool piece of eye-catching jewelry and Maha Lozi wild things ring definitely caught my eye. It’s also hard for me to find a print that I like to wear, so I was delighted to discover the Yumi Kim dress that strikes the right balance.
And I couldn’t ignore an awesome underwater camera I found on ASOS that brings a smile to my face! Add in the scary looking but so-worth-it face mask and a hat for the beach outings, my summer shopping feels as productive as my work day.

Hawaii’s weather can act like a psycho ex-boyfriend who changes his mind every five seconds so figuring out what to wear can be challenging. Yes, it’s warm year round here but it’ll rain in about 10 seconds, trust me. So I need a light coat…not jacket, not a sweater, just something light enough for me to wear outside and be in a comfortable body temperature. Then I found the perfect summer coat from Aritzia and thank heavens, it comes in black as well! You can layer it as a robe, long sweater or a dress…I do love a multi-tasking piece of cloth. Yes, the price is a bit steep but think of how effortlessly poetic you will look while strolling down the cobblestone street somewhere in Venice looking up at the stars.

I have a thing…more like an addiction really to white dresses and you’ll rarely see me wear them outside because I like to buy them and admire them safely in my closet. Nah, just kidding! I do wear them to fancy events or dates and then regret it when I inevitably ruin it by spilling something on them. I’m the kind of girl that’s not afraid to drop $400 on a dress without blinking an eye but $20.00 for a moisturizer? Pffffff……. My apartment is filled with expensive clothes and drugstore makeup. Welcome to my life!

A modern day gentleman knows that it’s good manners to dress well. If you’re looking for some stylish gifts to give to a special guy in your life this holiday, you don’t have to search too far. Here are some of my favorite finds for guys who want to look good, smell good and feel good for Thanksgiving and beyond.
A tailored button-down shirt that can go straight from a board meeting to a cocktail party. And some fancy grey pants to go with it. Then a pair of cool shoes that says “Don’t take me too seriously”. Spritz a sophisticated cologne on your wrists before you put on this watch. Don’t forget to moisturize your hands while you’re at it! Put all the essentials like this minimalistic 2017 calendar and glasses in your travel bag.
On a side note: Isn’t shopping gifts for guys the easiest thing ever?!
