Where to...

Alexa Chung at Glastonbury
...find a cute little white dress like this? Just one more day left and I'll be heading down to LA for some 4th of July fun weekend. I got a few things already packed in that suitcase of mine. But sometimes, I get a bit indecisive about what I want to bring. I'm sure you all understand. Should I bring this? Will I wear that? I'm trying to be economical and pack light. But maybe I'll buy a few new pieces while I'm down there? haha. I'll figure it out eventually.  ;)

Tomorrow is the Social Media Day event that Mashable is hosting. It's from 6:30 - 9:00 PM at House of Air. If you're in the SF/bay area, come! I'll be there!

Hanneli Mustaparta is perhaps one of my all time favorite blogger. She is my inspiration go-to person. Her simple and well put together outfits exudes elegance, class, and yet, still effortlessly chic. Love!!! Visit her site.

On another note, I had taken my denim dungarees to the alterations shop the other day, and will have them done by this Thursday. I'm excited to wear it! Fourth of July weekend is coming up and I'll be heading down to SoCal once again. Jenny is coming in from Sweden this week and I can't wait to see her. It's been too long since we've seen each other. So, there will be a lot of catching up. =)

Have a wonderful week everyone!

Out and About:

This weekend was fun! Went to see the movie, Bad Teacher, which I thought was pretty hysterical...if you like sarcasm. At age 39, Cameron Diaz still looks great!

On Sunday, we went to Golden Gate Park for the free concert Alice 97.3FM was hosting. I believe there were about 15,000 people there. It was packed! I've never been to GGP before, and I definitely want to check it out again.The concert performances were great, especially One Republic. ;-)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Can't wait for it to come around again.

Me and Kali getting some sun at the park.

Mulberry Resort 2012

Mulberry is perhaps one of my most favorite brands because for one, it's classy and effortlessly chic! If I could have a shopping spree anywhere, it would probably be Mulberry! =) Emma Hill brings British cheekiness to another level. Read more at Vogue.

Out and About:

Lately, it has been quite warm in the bay area...I mean, beach weather warm. That's pretty crazy.
This was a couple weekends ago when Josh's family from Guam came to visit. We decided to take a little stroll to Pier 39 Fisherman's Wharf. We had some clam chowder in a bowl and fed the seagulls some crackers. It was a frenzy! 

Speaking of the beach, I've been yearning to go to Santa Cruz. Yes! That should be my next little weekend getaway.

So, remember that picture I posted of Alexa Chung with her denim dungarees a few weeks back? Here's the photo again:

Well, I told you I'd make my own! It wasn't so bad at all. The only problem is, it's left unfinished because I do not have a sewing machine in hand. I'll have to go to an alterations or borrow a friend's. After it's all done, I'll post up the final end product. Can't wait to wear it to the summer concerts in the bay area. =)


See the process of it being made here...

Chloe Resort 2012

 Jacquelyn Jablonski for Chloe Resort 2012.

Newly appointed Creative Director, Clare Waight Keller, steps up the plate after predecessor, Hannah MacGibbon. For Chloe Resort, Keller apt for a classy Parisian bourgeois mixed with a SoCal sense of ease. I adore the collection, but I can do without the buckled up heels, which looks like a cross between mary janes and gladiators. It doesn't quite suit my fancy. Perhaps it does for you? What do you think?

Celine Resort 2012

Celine Resort 2012

Phoebe Philo does minimalistic and effortless chic with Celine Resort, and she does so flawlessly. I love the florals and colors she uses to give the collection dimension and texture. Slip into one of her pieces and feel empowered and feminine. =)

Playful Days

Who better to pull off anything, literally, than Alexa Chung?! I use to sport dungarees/overalls back in the hay days (junior high/high school). It was the 90s, what can I say?! =P I'm glad they are coming back into trend again. They are simple, comfortable, and effortless chic, if you know how to wear it. I have an old pair of short dungarees from Gap and am thinking about turning them into a skirt like the one Alexa is wearing. It is a DIY project in the works. =)

Stone Cold Fox SS 2011

Stone Cold Fox SS 2011 Collection

It's finally warming up these days. I've been feeling a little bit groggy the past few days, but I'm much better now. =)

This past weekend, I was in the city shopping for a dress to wear to my friend's wedding, but unfortunately, I found none of liking. Or that I was satisfied with to say the least. It's in August, so I do have some time. Any suggestions on where to shop in the bay area? Or online?

Though I didn't find a dress, I did manage to purchase a few things. I'll post them up on another day. Till then, have a wonderful rest of the week!

Such beautiful views from the rooftop.

I'm finally back from my mini vacay in LA! It was a pleasure to have hungout with friends in Hollywood Hills, Venice Beach, and Orange County. After a long ride home, I'm tired and exhausted. But such a fun weekend it was!  =)

Now, time to catch up with my Game of Thrones on HBO!
