Leopard  and leather.   I am not usually known for wearing leather save for a leather jacket.. but I have to say that this Alexander Wang top got me at first sight.  It's simple yet classic Wang and paired with a soft draw string trouser it's the odd couple of fashion.

I am the type of girl that finds an item I love and actually wears it til it's death.  I am attempting to not do that with this Michael Stars Oversized Sweater.  Since it arrived about two weeks ago I have worn it probably 5 times.  It just might be the coziest sweater if the season.  Soft..perfectly cut.. and has taken me from day to night on more than one occasion.  

Dear Michael Stars.. the public at large needs this sweater in at least 4 more colors.

Finding Your Perfect Scent.. 10 yummy perfumes..




Perfume is and will always be a very personal part of life.  Because of our individual body chemistry, no single scent smells the same on two people.   What smells like heaven in one person can also smell like a garbage can on the next.  And shopping for the right fragrance can be super challenging.  Standing in front of the wall  beautiful bottles at your

FOOD POST: Cafe Mango Six on 3rd Street..

I have fallen.. I have fallen hard for Mango Six.  When I was invited to come check out the new cafe on 3rd Street I found out what folks in Seoul Korea have known for a while now....  The mango has landed on the map.  Now this is going to sound really really strange to you guys but until my first trip to Mango Six I had never tasted anything involving a fresh mango.   And I am a fan

I was super excited when asked to participate in the Beverly Center "Show Us Your Style" Challenge

The Mission:  Find a great Fall outfit..
The Challenge: $125 bucks to spend" 

 and anyone that knows me knows that I am up for a challenge.

A couple rules.. 
1. We could not add any extra funds to our $125

Take your boots to new heights.. 10 amazing tall boots for Fall


With Fall here and winter just around the corner.. it is once again BOOT TIME..  Now we all know that the ankle boot is here to stay.. But why not step into Fall with higher heights.  That's right folks.. the knee high boot is making a comeback.. and I for one am super excited about it.  Tall boots as I like to affectionately refer to them are super versatile and add a bit of sass and class to any look.

Just like an ankle boot..
