It’s really feeling like summer here in LA! And tank top and dress weather is my favorite time of the year to refresh my often-neglected underwear drawer. These super cute and flirty pieces by Candie’s are such a treat! I’m loving all the designs of the four bralettes and three panties in my recent Candie’s underwear haul from Kohl’s.

Cute pieces of Candie’s.

I’ve been looking for this kind of high-neck bralette design for a long time. I love that it 1) provides a lot of coverage, 2) has built-in cups, 3) is breathable, and 4) looks extremely classy!

I love lace because it’s fancy but can also be a bit edgy. The lace pattern of this bralette is really elegant and I know I’ll be wearing this bra a lot, especially when I want to add fresh details to my outfits. I’m trying to be better at restyling the items in my closet, and this layer of lace is an easy way to elevate a top or dress.

I wore the high neck bralette to transform my super casual shirt dress into a summer date night dress.

The Candie’s lace thongs are super comfortable and the colors are so pretty. And since the lace panties are currently on sale for 5 for only $30, might as well get them in Beach Glass, Deep Blue, and Zahara Plum.

Remember when visible bra straps was such a fashion faux pas? ? I’m part of the camp where it’s perfectly fine and acceptable for your bra straps to show as long as they’re pretty and make you feel pretty. I love the peek-a-boo eyelash effect on these bralettes!

And how cool are the back designs on these bras? I would totally wear them with open-back dresses and tops and racerback tanks.

Candie’s bras are currently on sale at Kohl’s for $18.99, so it’s definitely the perfect time to update your underwear drawer.

Happy July. It’s my birthday month, and I’m feeling like I just want to have a low-key celebration. Maybe just a nice dinner with family. I think that’s all that “old people” really want…

In this post, I’m sharing the ASOS Petite leopard print dress that I bought at the last minute before my mom’s birthday dinner. My mom wanted to celebrate just like how I’m planning to celebrate my birthday: a great dinner with family at a lovely restaurant.

We had dinner at Castaway, which has a beautiful view. My mom’s favorite spot!

When I ordered this leopard print dress, I wasn’t sure how it’d suit me or how great it’d fit. The pattern is a pale pink with navy (I know it looks black in some of the photos, but it’s navy blue), and the material is slightly stretchy. The cut is so flattering and there is some ruching of the material at the belly area with an elasticized waist to hide any trouble spots or after-dinner bloat.

ASOS Petite has never let me down. The length is perfect (I’m 5’1″) and the dress is true to size. I’m wearing a US 0.

I wore nude pumps because nude pumps go with everything. I need to add some cute heeled sandals to my closet. But since I rarely get to wear my beloved pumps these days, I take the opportunity whenever I get it.

I also added the Givenchy Antigona (mini size) in nude pink to my bag collection. Yay. I’ve been so good about not buying fancy bags or shoes, that when I saw this on the preowned market at such an amazing price, I didn’t feel too guilty about the purchase.

There definitely ain’t no shame in buying used items when you want the look and not pay thousands of dollars. There also ain’t no shame in buying designer dupes either. Don’t forget to check out my Amazon page full of awesome highly rated dupes!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you’re having a wonderful summer so far!

Hi! Hope you’re all doing awesome. I wasn’t going to blog this outfit, but decided to just throw up a quick post about the black ASOS asymmetric top and Sam Edelman white booties outfit I posted on IG recently.

I’m not a huge fan of off-shoulder styles, but I love cold shoulder tops. I’m also not a big fan of ruffles–they look amazing on everyone else but too frilly and girlish in an unfitting way on me. But this top seems to work for me because it’s ruffly and open-shouldered with a little bit of edge.

I wore the top unzipped, but zipping it up looks cute too. And the long sleeves make this a perfect top for summer date nights.

I love the asymmetric long length of the top. It’s dramatic and a little dressy looking, even though this outfit is pretty much casual.

I accessorized with a nude-black-white colorblock Prada purse that I found at an amazing price on the preowned market. I love shopping preowned because it’s like splurging without the guilt.

I wanted to try the white boots trend. I thought about painting some boots white, but I felt they wouldn’t come out quite right, especially since I wanted patent leather boots. I fell in love with these Sam Edelman Olette boots, which are sold out everywhere except for Amazon. I sized up 1/2 a size to have room for ankle socks, and the fit is perfect and the boots are so comfortable!

Hi! Happy mid-June and the official halfway point of 2018. Insanity!

Just throwing up a quick post to introduce my new Amazon Influencer page. On this page you’ll find categorized lists of some of my favorite Amazon picks. I love shopping Amazon because Prime shipping is super fast and usually you can’t beat their prices.

So far I have created lists for Beauty products, Designer Dupes on Amazon, items for your Furbaby, Shoe Restoration, and Style lists for Swimsuits and Summer picks. I’ll always be adding new stuff, so check back often.

Designer Dupes on Amazon

This is one of my favorite lists. If you’ve been following me for a while you already know how much I love my Valentino Rockstud dupes (by Kaitlyn Pan) and the Stuart Weitzman Highland over-the-knee boots (also by Kaitlyn Pan). The quality of these shoes is great, and you definitely get the designer look without busting the bank and without the shame of fronting with counterfeit goods (I know that’s controversial…we’ll save the debate for another time.)

Recently, I spotted some vegan leather Chloe Susanna designer dupes on Amazon and a Chloe Drew bag dupe. I personally have not purchased these items, but they both have been rated 4.5 to 5 out of 5 stars and look fabulous. Definitely worth checking out.

Also still love the Jeffrey Campbell Cromwell dupes (see my old post about those boots here).


Amazon has also been my go-to for affordable, trendy swimsuits. I’ve made a list of a bunch of cute ones here.

I love this one by Tempt Me, which is the one I wore on my Hawaiian vacation last year.

Hi! Just a quick post to show and link to the dress I’m posting on IG this week. I wore this to our Mother’s Day lunch yesterday. I loved the red flowers on the dress, so I decided to go bold by rocking my bright red booties (which I painted myself with Angelus Fire Red paint) and red chain bag.

I think the red booties trend is super cute, and I looked at a lot of bright red boots online, but I ultimately decided to just paint an old pair of Rag and Bone booties instead. This is always a good decision for me because 1) save money and 2) save closet space.

I love Rag and Bone Newbury booties (I have them in several colors), but this camel color looked dated to me. Since I hadn’t worn them in a long time, I decided to make them over. I used Angelus Fire Red leather paint, which turned out a little bit more orangey than I wanted (maybe Chili Red would have been better), but I’m still happy with the results.

[Here’s my DIY tutorial on how to paint leather shoes.]

Before and After: Painted these outdated camel booties a trendy fire red color.
