As I browsed through the many photos of those who were in attendance that are floating around the fashion WebSphere I was in awe of the beautiful gowns and then there were the WTF moments! I understand Fashion is self expression and art so I do appreciate the more creative looks!

Who said you had to compromise your style while at the office?

A great handbag and some great shoes and you are good to go!

Daycation

Daycation: A mini vacation you take for one day; A quick getaway for the day.

Ok so I made that term up! However, I think it’s fitting because I have been planning a daycation to Santa Barbara and we are finally going this weekend!

santa barbara

I can’t hardly wait! Me and the hubs need this little getaway and the change of scenery is going to be nice.  Living in Southern California has its benefits because the weather is always nice even during the winter months. We get a little rain and some snow in the mountain regions but those days are sometimes few and far between.

I’ve been doing a little online window shopping for our day trip and I’m thinking of wearing something comfy and simple for walking purposes but cute!

Here is what I have my eyes on!

SHIRT-DRESS-WITH-TIE DenimShirtDress

I have been really feeling the denim shirt dresses lately

Aviators aviators

topped off with some mirrored aviator sunnies!

I will be sure to share photos from our “daycation” and what I wore!

**Oh and I have reached 100 readers!!! Yay!!! I will be doing my first blog giveaway very soon so look out for those details!

Live your dream now: A tribute to Vince Camuto

Live your dream now

I just got wind of the passing of Fashion Giant Vince Camuto. While browsing my daily read feeds I came across a beautiful tribute on Out Of The Box Fashion blog showing all of the fabulous shoes he has designed.  He has contributed so much to the fashion industry from owning his own line Vince Camuto co founding Nine West to owning the master licenses to Jessica Simpson brand. He also partnered with Tory Burch on her footwear line. To say he was a smart business man is an understatement.

Girl Crush : Lilly Ghalichi

I’m a true believer in giving my fellow sister her props! I’m never one to hate on another woman for what she has or what she has accomplished because we all have the same 24 hours in a day! I feel as women no matter the nationality  we are all sisters and should never envy each other! We should uplift and be each others support system. So to honor that sisterhood I’m creating a weekly post called Girl Crush! I want to highlight women who are movers and shakers! Those who chase their dreams and does not take no for an answer.

Batter up is the Persian Barbie Lilly Ghalichi

LillyG1

I mean after a photo like that what more can I say?!

Well for starters she’s a Lawyer, designer, reality tv start, beauty entrepreneur, and need I say drop dead gorgeous GLAMAZON from Houston TX! The queen of #GhalichiGlam is taking the world by storm with her Lilly Hair clip in extension, Lilly Lashes eye lashes, her affordable fashion online boutique Want My look, and she also has a Jewelry line Lilly Ghalichi by Avitan. I mean the girl has it going on!

LillyG2

I first got wind of her on Bravo TV’s reality series Shah’s of Sunset. Her big over the top hair had me at the door honey! Although I did not watch the show that much she stood out to me the most. And I must say with her being the same age as me (31) her accomplishments are certainly inspiring me to take my passion and career goals to the next level for sure.

Do you have a Girl Crush who is doing big things and inspiring you?
