In the News: The Upper House x Christian Louboutin

Happy Friday, friends!  Beginning today, I’d like to start a new segment on the blog called “In the News” which will cover interesting fashion or beauty news that I uncover.  Every day there are innovative and fun fashion/beauty-related ideas cropping up all around us and I would love to document them here.  At least those I find most intriguing!

Recently I read an article in Conde Nast Traveler about Hong Kong’s The Upper House hotel teaming up with Christian Louboutin and The Nail Library (a spa) to offer some amazing packages and discounts for those who are staying at the hotel.  Based on the room booked, guests receive a signature “Red Slipper” cocktail, scented candle, and a leather Louboutin card holder, among other perks such as beauty treatments.  Another package gifts travelers a pair of Christina Louboutin Air Loubi flats.

As a fan of the French fashion house and of bustling Hong Kong, this is up my alley.  I need to book a trip to Hong Kong, ASAP!

Fashion is all about trying new things and having fun with it, right?  This pair of culottes would be a great addition to my wardrobe.  I have not worn many wide-leg pants in my days, but if I had a pair this is how I would style it!

I’ve never met a striped skirt (or shirt for that matter) I didn’t like.  This beautiful skirt from Banana Republic is so simple yet striking at the same time.  The tan stripes really pop especially when we’re used to seeing navy or black stripes.  I love playing with patterns and went for a totally different pattern for my shirt, but still keeping to the same color family.  It’s a bit of mixing the old with the new here…what do you think?

I hope it is sunny and spring-like wherever you are this week…happy Thursday!  xoxo

Buttoned Up

I like to change up my daily work wardrobe with either statement jewelry or a unique handbag.  This week I decided to work both into my work style: a jewel tone statement necklace and a structured handbag in a buttery, nutty color.  As we all dream of warmer, colorful spring weather…why not, right?  🙂

Here’s to a great day!  Hope you’re having a good week so far.

Winter vacation is officially over!  Although I started work towards the end of last week, I was working from home, things were quiet in the office, and it still felt like vacation.

While (inevitably) sad that my two weeks of vacation has ended, I am nevertheless feeling energized and pumped for what is in store for the upcoming year.  I’m not a big “resolutions” person, but I do have a few goals I hope to work towards and accomplish by the end of the year.

This outfit is what I wore on New Year’s Eve.  I kept the look simple and chic, adding a hint of sparkle from my necklace.  I love, love this peplum top (from Tibi) and it’s the perfect dark green for winter.  Though the holidays are over, let’s all keep the sparkle and energy alive throughout the year!

Cheers to a brand new week and a happy Monday!  xoxo

Holiday Glam

Happy Monday!  I am writing to you from sunny Los Angeles.  A good friend of mine got hitched this weekend in downtown LA at a gorgeous venue called Vibiana.  The couple did such a beautiful job with the wedding.  From the fresh, white flower arrangements, to the outdoor posh cocktail hour, to inviting an Indonesian popstar to entertain guests, the wedding was a dazzling event (not to mention the stylish individuals that studded the guest list!).

I wore this floor length BCBG Max Azria dress to the wedding.  It fit like a glove in the store and I just knew this was the one.  With peplum details at the waist and cut-outs in the back, the dress is both modern and sophisticated.  Love!

Hope you are having a great start to your week so far and that the next couple of days are filled with love, laughter, and lots of family time!

Thanks for supporting my blog and taking the time to stop by each day!

Now that we’re halfway through November, the holiday parties and soirees will be kicking off soon!  For me, it starts this weekend – I will be hosting an intimate dinner party for some of my closest friends.  I can definitely see myself wearing this plaid shirt (dressed down with a pair of jeans) while I run last minute shopping needs on Saturday.  I’m loving how versatile a plaid shirt can be and there are just so many fun colors to choose from.

Do you have any versatile favorite pieces in your closet?  Hope you’re having a great week!  xoxo
