smokin’ hot cargo.

December 29th, 2010 — 8:15pm

i can’t resist anymore!  i’ve been dying to get a pair of skinny cargos but can’t seem to justify paying over $200 for the j brand houlihan that everyone has.  ah ha, my search for a pair is finally over!  i’ve fallen in love with black orchid’s skinny cargo.  there is no denying that black orchid makes the most comy jeans ever…scout’s honor.  i’ve been packing a pair on the past two out of town trips because they are my favorite pick to wear on the plane.  besides, they’re smokin’ hot!

chocolate leona.

December 28th, 2010 — 4:46pm

i’ve been feeling a bit lazy after the holidays and the gloomy weather hasn’t been helping.  all i want to wear are my skinny jeans, a tee, boots, & my sweater.  i’ve started digging through my closet for my old sweaters that i haven’t worn in ages to liven up my wardrobe.  and i’ve been trying to update my shelves of sweaters this season but i haven’t found much that have sparked my interest.  of course, then the leona arrived this morning!  i really love a comfy & cozy type of sweater that i can wrap myself in without all the fuss of wearing layers and layers to keep warm.  now that the rain is here for the week, it’s just the perfect sweater!

magnolia bakery in la

December 26th, 2010 — 11:29pm

something about being out of town makes me crave some out of this world cupcakes…especially when it’s chilly and raining!  oh i just can’t resist and how could i when there was one right across the street from joan’s on third where i was eating my favorite chinese chicken salad and joan’s home made mac & cheese.  you’ll never have to ask me twice about getting dessert!  i ran over to magnolia and picked up one (yes, just one!) of their savory vanilla cupcakes for a late night treat…yum, my fave!  and they have just the cutest decor….

spring into action

December 24th, 2010 — 4:52pm

it may  still be winter but we’re already getting ready for spring!  nation ltd is back with its basics but i’m lovin’ the bora bora dress, new for the season.  the name itself makes me want to go to bora bora for the holidays for a relaxing weekend getaway….since i can’t, the maxi will just have to do for now!   maybe i should add the malibu sweatshirt in army to my list of wants for the rainy week coming up…

black pearl

December 23rd, 2010 — 7:40pm

i’ve given up on pampering myself to manicures for a very good reason….i’m constantly changing the color of my nails if you didn’t already notice.  and lately, an earthy brown seems to be my color of choice (i love, love ‘you don’t know jacques’ by opi) but my all time favorite colors are ‘my old flame’ & ‘fade to black’ by lippman collection.  a classic blue red & the good ol’ black.  thankfully, chanel just launched their new spring hues of nail lacquer and i’ve got my eyes set on the black pearl…love the updated black!

for the gloomy wet weather

December 21st, 2010 — 7:25pm

it’s still christmas at dolce with all the new resort deliveries trickling in just in time to help you finish your christmas shopping.  as always, i have too much fun trying on all the new styles that have arrived.  except, i get really lazy when i have to take off my skinny jeans and boots.  therefore, i didn’t try on the cargo rider pants.  oh, but it’s so fabulous!  pinky swear.

move over zannie, it’s the dickens wrap!  you’ll love the dickens & enyo shrug…perfect for the gloomy wet weather we’re having!

downtown la

December 21st, 2010 — 2:28am

here’s a snapshot of one of the buildings that i work in when i’m visiting la.  it’s actually one out of three buildings that i spend most of my time.  my day consists of a lot of hard work.  it really is mentally exhausting but it doesn’t sound awful when i tell you that i’m shop, shop, shopping all day!  but (and there’s always a but), i’ve got to visit a bunch of showrooms, review the entire collection of all the labels, snap photos of my favorite pieces, and drag home lots of paperwork….and they are heavy when i’m hand carrying them on the plane ride home.  after jet setting only a mere two days, i still love what i do…
