Thankfull







Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Hope everyone had a happy 4 day weekend! I celebrated with my family at home over ham, lobster and crab for dinner. Then headed out to Vegas over the weekend. Driving back on Sunday night was NOT fun being stuck in traffic for 6 hours!

So this dress was originally my mom's top that she didn't wear anymore so she gave it to me. When I first tried it on, it was really puffy and long so I thought adding a waist belt to it would be perfect to turn it into a dress. My mom was surprised at how great it looks! She bought it for about $10 in Taiwan. I wouldn't recommend wearing this waist belt during a big Thanksgiving dinner though. I added a pair of dark grey stalkings because it was a bit chilly at night.

I've been eyeing this hair cuff for quite some time at H&M, but was always reluctant to purchase it because I wasn't sure how it would look on me. But recently H&M had a BOGO Free sale on their accessories so I thought it would be a nice time to try it since it was relatively cheap. I think it looks pretty unique and cool.

Top: $10 Taiwan
Belt: Chicks and Blokes $5.95
Earrings: Forever 21 $4.80
Hair tie: $3.95 BOGO Free

Spotted







I found this purse at Nordstroms and initially purchased a mustard yellow color, even though I absolutely hate that color. I thought it would make a good Fall look and match with many outfits, but after keeping it for a week I just couldn't stand the color. So I decided to return it. But as I was returning it, I spotted this fushia/hot pink color. It really stood out and reminded me of the Kate Spade purse. On top of that, it was on clearance! I was so ecstatic! Got many compliments on it =)

Shorts: Express $9.99
Heels: Cole Haan Outlet $89 (Org. $375)
Purse: Steve Madden $34.99 (Clearance at Nordstroms Org. $78)

Up, up and away!




 









I finally went hot air ballooning! It's been on my bucket list for awhile now and I'm so glad I had the chance to go this time. I never realized what a beautiful place Temecula was until viewing it from up in the air. The mountains and lakes nearby add a great backdrop to the vast vineyards in the area. We had to wake up really early to catch the sunrise that morning, but it was totally worth it. If you look over the edge, it really seems like you're flying! Loved that there were 12 other hot air balloons also flying that day, looks great for photos!
I recently purchased these new purple jeans. At first they reminded me of scrubs, but if you pair it with the right top it looks pretty good. I was surprised that the top I found at Forever 21 was on clearance for so cheap! I love the pearls that they added on top of the lace, adds a bit of a elegance to the lace top. I love my new Aldo flats, they go great with almost anything! I also just recently purchased the Kate Spade bracelet at the Vegas Premium Outlet. I saw it a couple days ago at Nordstroms for $88! It goes great with the Michael Kors watch.

Venetian








I was shopping at the Foreign Exchange outlet and found this cute peplum dress. I already have too many black dresses and was hesitant trying it on, but was trying on other clothes anyways. I was surprised at how well it fit my body. I love the details of the dress with the sheer one shoulder strap and peplum waist ruffles that go all the way to the back. It kind of reminds me of a penguin for some reason.
I went to Vegas again with my girlfriends and stayed at Palazzo for the first time. We got a pretty awesome suite with an elliptical! I just used it once when we got there, but should've used it more since we ate soo much! We ate at Bouchon, Sushi Samba, and Morels Steakhouse.They were all superb!!

Peplum dress: Foreign Exchange $29  (BOGO Free)
Clutch: Forever 21 $27.80
Heels: BCBG $45
Earrings: Ross $4.99
Bracelet: Forever 21 $8.80
