What's in a Wardrobe?


I thought I'd let you all take a peek inside my closet!

Also, I consider these items to be a few spring essentials. 
I'm all about getting the most wear out of the things I buy. In fact, when I buy something, I always ask myself,
 What would this go with?
Do I own something already that I could wear with this?
If the answer is no to my second question then I won't buy it. 
It's a good shopping rule to have and it often prevents buyer's remorse from happening when you get home.


eyelets, exposed zipper, stripes, boatneck

coral, scalloped, lightweight, cropped shirt

floral, lightweight, versatile, great to put in your hair, around your neck, or as a belt!

flowy, buttons, light rust, love the sleeves...

the essential tie top, pewter with silver random polka dots, so easy and so much style all at the same time...

the essential chino, in gray, great fit, professional, or casual, so versatile

scalloped & eyelets, high-waisted short, tuck things in or not,  almost wears like it's a skirt, great piece!

Every girl needs a blazer. It's essential. A well fitted blazer, I should add!

brown leather belts, one or two two wear around the waist, and one or two to wear through your belt loops when you tuck in a shirt.
chunky strapped sandal, great with jeans for an evening out with the girls!

Vintage looking T-strapped heels, mixed brown leather, cute with a flowy skirt or dress...

wedges! I love these. They are an orangeish-brownish leather, they add to any outfit! So easy to walk in too!

Love the studs, a shoe that goes with a lot! love to pair it with the brown bow belts with gold accents (as seen earlier in this post)

a feminine loafer shoe. Can't go wrong. Goes great with navy, red, or pale yellow!

pointy toed flats! My kind of shoe...I wear flats way too much, they're just so easy though!

the classic converse, get a cute spring color and wear them with a casual dress or skirt, so California looking!

a few of my shoes...

Pretty Little Secrets: 10 Makeup Essentials!

Click to Enlarge

1. $5//Rimmel London professional eyebrow pencil
Tip: defining your brows lightly can really transform your look!

2. $15//M·A·C Eyeliner Eye Kohl
Own a gray one for a lighter look and a black one for evening wear and a more dramatic eye...

3. Splurge: $29//Benefit Cha Cha tint and Posie tint cheek stain
Love this stuff. It's like having a built in grandma to pinch your cheeks so they look rosy and cute!

4. $15//Clinique long last lipstick in Dubonnet
One of my favorite shades. Love Clinique's lipstick. This shade only found online!

5. Splurge: $33//Chanel Rouge Coco hydrating creme lip color in Mademoiselle
Favorite lipstick ever. I'll be sad when I run out of this tube...I'm getting close! Ah! And yes, it's worth the splurge!

6. $26//Bare Escentuals bareMinerals original foundation
I call this magic powder and I used to wear it all the time when my mom bought my make up. No more, on a college student's budget, but I found the next best thing, which brings me to number 7...

7. $9//Mineral Power Maybelline natural perfecting powder foundation
This stuff is just as good! A little heavier, but good.

8. $9//Max Factor Panstik
If you can find this in stores, consider your self lucky! They've stopped carrying Max Factor at most stores. I have to buy it online. But, it is so worth it! Best concealer I've ever used!

9. $7//Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara
Just as good as the fancy stuff! Really extends your lashes!

10. Splurge: $25//Dior Diorshow black out mascara
Also a great tube! Lasts a while! Great for evening looks and special occasions !

Featured Item!

What fun is a dress 
if you don't twirl in it?
Currently loving this vintage looking twirling dress
from none other than ASOS 

Another reason I adore ASOS shipping to the US!

Highlight: Anna Sui

So out of the Resort 2012 Shows, 
I thought I'd pick out my favorite designer and highlight them here on my blog. 
After looking through dozens of shows on 'The Cut', I decided to highlight Anna Sui. 
Here are some of my favorite looks hers:

Color, pattern, flow, fit and texture are all elements 
that make this collection cohesive and cute!
I always love her designs and 
her resort wear was too cute to pass up!
 Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
In the meantime, check out more of Anna Sui at New York Times Fashion!
