Baby Pink is Back!

I’ve spent the last year consistently adding black and white pieces to my closet. I was convinced that color was dead – at least for me! That is… until this week when I discovered all of my favorite must-have wants are coming in shades of baby pink. And I’m not turning away from them. So I’m declaring it – baby pink is making a comeback this year and we are more than a little excited about it. The best part about this shade of pink is that it’s very subtle and if you want to wear a minimally styled outfit with black or white, a little pop of baby pink will do just the trick. Here are my favorite items from this week for our wishlist:

Aritzia Unleashes Spring 2017

I feel like we’ve been waiting for this moment since December! For weeks, I’ve been waiting for their “final” 50%-70% sale promos to come down so that we can celebrate spring and it looks like that time. is. now. Also side note though – that was a really good sale so if you missed out, you did yourself a disservice. Now onto more important things – the pieces that you’ll need for your closet this coming season. Get ready to haul out the stuff you don’t wear anymore to Goodwill to make some room!

Wilfred Hosta Dress – $125

The off-the-shoulder look is not done and over yet! I love how romantic and delicate this piece looks and it’s the perfect dress that will take you straight from day to night in any event.

Wilfred Rosa Dress – $55

What’s Christmas without a little after Christmas Day shopping?! Aritzia was holding their annual Boxing Day sale and of course we couldn’t pass this opportunity up. This time around, I thought I was going to be leaving with a turtleneck of some kind (dress or sweater) and something velvety, but instead I left with a sleeveless dress that I could wear layered during the cold months and well into the spring/summer and a dress that had been sold out for a few weeks and then brought back! When you put on this sweater dress, it’s like wearing pajamas and the coziest thing you’ve ever put on. And because I never feel like I have enough sweaters…we bought one more cardigan to add to the closet.

Our Favorite Winter Trend: Velvet

Talulah Manhattan Pant – $65

I paid a visit to my favorite retailer, Aritzia, a few weeks ago and I was surprised to see that their store was stocked front to back with the most beautiful and stunning velvety pieces. I wasn’t a 90’s child that wore a lot of velvet back in the day. I might have owned one piece of clothing in the fabric and I can for sure say that it wasn’t a favorite because it’s completely not memorable to me today. I had my reservations at first, but as I started making my way through the store, my hesitation turned into curiosity and then very quickly to lust for this very soft and romantic piece of fabric. Are any of you excited to be wearing velvet in 2016?! Maybe you just need a little push… here are 5 pieces from Aritzia to get you started:

How We Holiday Party in 2015

Lovers + Friends Primrose Dress – $170

No matter how badly you want things to go a certain way, no amount of effort or time can change what’s supposed to actually happen. You would think that I would’ve learned this valuable lesson by now. For the last two years, I’ve worn black dresses – both very similar to each other. So in my third holiday party with my company, I vowed to be a little bit different. This year was going to be the year that I wore a white dress! So we started the search and the dream dress that I had wanted ran out the day after I had found it online. The dress that I ended up buying was beautiful and a steal as it was 50% off, but it didn’t feel like it was the one – I just wasn’t sure so I had to go to the mall and do my due dilligence – try on all the holiday party dresses to be sure that I was happy with the one I had purchased. Sure enough, I found one and it wasn’t white, but it was the one. You know how sometimes people talk about when they’ve found the one and they just know and they have no other reason that they give, but that one reason? That’s how I felt about this dress today and I can’t say the same for the others.

Now that I’ve finally got THE dress, we can write this post without much worry. I’ll be sure to share the one I actually wear next month in a later post, but since I’ve done some pre-research, the selection I’ve provided below is real good. I’ve scoured everything.

Aritzia Fall Lookbook ’15

Babaton Hopper Skirt – $110

Faux suede, I’ve got to have it. Okay so even though I’m in love with summer forever, I still get really excited for fall. I love the layers, the boots, and the infinite amounts of cozy sweaters I have piling up in my closet that are waiting for me. Aritzia just released their fall lookbook and let’s be real – most – if not all of my fall clothing will come directly from them. We can’t wait.

Free People Sausalito Washed Sandals – $68

Can you tell that we’re looking for new sandals and wedges? I’ve worn down by only and first pair of DV by Dolce Vita Wedges and after looking at its condition, it’s time to invest in a new pair. So we’ve been looking at options…

Wilfred Teigen Dress$85 $80

I was invited to shop the MAJOR sale early at Aritzia last week, but unfortunately just couldn’t make it out to their store to try on all the goodies. Instead, I waited until it was open to the public and to my surprise they still had all of the things I wanted in all of the sizes that I was looking for. I would’ve been crushed if I had missed the sale because half of my wardrobe comes from them. This sale was so important to me that I went straight there after hopping off the plane from my trip in San Diego.

I actually own the dress (top) in burgundy, but accidentally shrunk it once to a length that is barely cutting it. I decided this time to purchase it in black and in xsmall (one size larger than my original) just to have that extra baggy look. Also, I’ve been wanting this skort forever and while it’s not a huge cut from the original price, it seemed like a good enough excuse to take the plunge and buy it.

Victoria’s Secret The Strappy Bandeau – $24.50

Victoria’s Secret The Cheeky – $22.50

*Sidenote. I totally already bought this. Since it was my birthday month and all, we got a little loose with the wallet. Actually I can’t even say that because I don’t even own a working wallet right now and should’ve probably made that my first purchase. Happy spring! I’m so excited to welcome new items into my life! Don’t worry – I didn’t buy ALL of these things.

What person doesn’t love to start out the year with a brand new spankin’ wardrobe?! Not only was “dressing better” one of my resolutions this year, it was also just dressing smarter. I wanted to really invest in long-lasting pieces that I knew I could wear over and over again and with other pieces that I already love. That means not succumbing to trends that are going to go away in a season and making sure that when I buy a piece I really love it. Over the holidays, I went on a little splurge at one of my favorite stores – Aritzia. I already own so much from them, but for the past couple of weeks they have been having a massive sale and naturally we had to take advantage of it. In fact, I’ve already been wearing a new piece from them every day this week and I’m bummed that I didn’t get to document it – but my new clothes aren’t going anywhere so they’ll be another opportunity for this.

I kicked off this past Monday with my new Babaton Dexter Pant. I knew that this was going to be something that I was hunting for in the new year so when I went to Aritzia I picked out a couple of black pants in similar styles. This one was actually picked out for me by a woman working at the store and granted it was the most expensive pair…but it was by far, the best pair. I love the way that I feel in these. Completely comfortable and ready to do anything. The elastic waist band was exactly what I was looking for because I didn’t want to struggle with a drawstring (too casual) and buttons and a clasp (too complicated.) When I wear these pants, I can just put them on and go. I paired these with a black sleeveless Madewell blouse and my Vince Camuto heels. It was fancy, but not too fancy. We satisfied the “I, at least, look put together on a Monday” look.

Favorites of 2014

Favorite Style Icon: Lily Aldridge

Lily is a style icon both on the runway and on the red carpet. This year, we really got to see her show up at a lot of events dressed to perfection. She was featured in our “Snaps for a Snapshots” several times in 2014 so even by the numbers alone, she beats everyone else. We’re looking forward to seeing more of her in 2015 and someday taking over the head angel slot when Adriana and Alessandra retire.

Runner up: Jamie Chung

The Closet: December 2014

Catbird Choupette Necklace – Rose Gold – $298

Typically I publish this list a week or so before Christmas since Kevin has said that he has used it for inspiration when shopping for presents for me in the past, but this year we just went straight to it and told each other what we wanted. This post is extremely accessory/jewelry heavy which is completely new for me, but with 2015 just around the corner, I figured – why not? I’m probably not going to get any of the things on this list, but I’m very much okay with it. Adult me needs to save $$$ anyways.

How to Ring in 2015 Right

Yumi Kim Beaded Elsa Dress – $300

TBH, we could’ve started this post a lot sooner, but lately I’ve been less than a planner than I’ve ever been in my life. You would think that I would have already planned out what I was going to do for New Years Eve already because normally that would’ve been decided weeks ago, but in fact, it’s still up in the air. It’s actually between seeing a DJ set in SF by Mayer Hawthorne or … you know…going to Vegas. So there’s that. Whatever the case – wherever I end up – having an outfit to wear on New Year’s Eve is something that I don’t skimp on. It’s actually one of my favorite holidays to dress up for (even though I don’t care about New Year’s Eve) because it’s the one time where you can look very sparkly and girly and what girl doesn’t love doing that for a night? So sorry for the late notice on this. If you see something you like just bite the bullet and purchase immediately so that it makes it in time for your big event!

Warning: We’ve got feels for the little black dress ahead!

Wilfred Diamond Mosaic Blanket – $85

I never thought I would cave in and buy an oversized scarf, but I totally did. It was kind of an accident, really. Back in October, I had purchased an Aritizia beanie that I loved, but thought I had lost. On the eve of Black Friday, I decided I couldn’t live without it and purchased a replacement only to discover a couple days later that the lost beanie was just sitting in with all of my other hats. So I returned the second beanie hoping to exchange it for something just as great. I found this scarf which was the price of the beanie…and then some. I’ve been feeling a little bit self-conscious that it’s just too overwhelming for me, but I’m still deciding to completely own it anyways. Sometimes I wrap it once while throwing the rest over my shoulder and sometimes I wear it as a shawl like a grandmother. Does it even matter how I wear it? It’s warm and getting me through this winter! It comes in a few different colors, but I love this red and blue one. Tommy says it makes me look very patriotic. Yay.
