Sweaters & Interesting Details

Hawaii is experiencing a cold spell. I really love colder weather here. I get the opportunity to wear sweaters and get bundled up. I completely adore sweaters with unexpected details; bow prints, polka dots, stripes or distressed details.

I have been watching a show on Netflix called Meteor Garden. I’m completely inspired by the fashion of the characters and all the different sweaters they use. I love all the different details from hooks, to distressing, to patterns, and interesting color combinations.

I have had this sweater in my collection for a while I love its distressed and unraveled sides, the soft yarn used, and the slouchy look. I paired it with dressy jogger pants and an asymmetric shirt.

What kind of details you like on your sweaters?

Thanks again for reading.



P.S. My hair was braided by Tiffany from TBraids808Hawaii. Thank you for making my hair for amazing.

Classic Elegance: Vintage Finds


Hello All,

Hope you are having a great day. I’ve always had a love for vintage clothing;  the structure, the fabric and the details on vintage pieces are not often found in pieces today. Last summer, I popped into Barrio Vintage to browse their amazing collection of vintage pieces. I stumbled about this gorgeous vintage high low skirt made of taffeta with flock. I could not pass up such an amazing find.


It is perfect for dressier events. In honesty, I bought the skirt mainly for the beautiful fabric.

I paired the skirt with a bustier top that I thrifted a couple of years back. The pairing looked so amazing together. The perfect outfit for a formal or a ball.


Thanks agains for reading. Let me know what you think.

New Year, New Beginning



Happy New Year!

I’m a little late on this New Year’s post but better late than never. Life has been very busy the last couple of months and I cannot thank you enough for your patience. The blog unfortunately had to take a back seat to everything else that was happening; graduate school, work, and wedding planning.

With every new year, there is a promise of new beginnings and a renewed outlook on life. I cannot wait for what is in store for 2016 and I hope you join me in this journey.


Nothing says celebration like a little bit of red, bling, and some fringe to liven things up.


Cheers to you as we start the year, here’s to a wonderful new year ahead and as always, thanks for stopping by.

Polka Dots


Hello All,

Polka dots are always classic. The skirt gives the print a softer look by using it on a sheer layer for this A line cut. I decided to bring out the color of the dots by using a similar color top and continuing the circle theme onto the necklace and the cutout of the shoes.


Thanks again for reading.

Feeling Blue


Happy Wednesday.

While the rest of the continental U.S. is cooling down. I still feel like it’s summer here, the humidity as of late has been a friendly remainder of tropical island weather. Truthfully, I’m missing the cooler weather and the ability to layer and wear cute sweaters. I’m really hoping for a colder winter in Hawaii sans torrential downpours. While we wait for sweater weather, I’m satisfied having more time to wear some of my summer favorites.


The gemstone blue of this dress screams Summer. I adore the shift silhouette with the asymmetric flounce detail of the hemline, a modern take on a classic cut. It adds a soft touch to a very structured neoprene. To break up the bold color, I added black and gray accessories to give it more shape and personality.

Thanks for reading. Let me know what you think.

With Love and Thanks,

Coordinated Stripes

Hello All,

I hope you are having a great weekend. Nothing gets old about black and white. It is a definite go to combination with so many possibilities.


The moment I saw this skirt, I fell in love with the unexpected take on stripes and the tulip construction. I really wanted to play up the stripes so I paired it with this striped raglan to create a coordinated look. I’m really like the results.  Let me know what you think.


Have a great weekend and let me know what you think.

Jumpsuits and Tea


During the summer I was in search for a great  jumpsuit to change up my wardrobe. I was set in finding one that had a culotte bottom.


I kept this outfit simple but wanted to break up the jumpsuit with a obi belt tied at the waist to separate the top and the bottom.


This is a perfect outfit for lunch dates and afternoon tea. Thanks again for reading. Let me know how you wear your jumpsuits.
