HELLO 2014


Hi loves! How was your New Year's celebration? I had a fantastic time with people I love. It’s always great to welcome in a new beginning. 2014 will be even more amazing than 2013.

For the first post of the New Year, I decided to feature this dress I wore to dinner last week in San Francisco. The weather was beautiful there over the holidays, which gave me the opportunity to wear it. The material, the high waist and the off shoulder design are all features I adore about the dress. It’s sexy, feminine and appropriate for a nice dinner out. Definitely add stockings if you want to wear this dress in New York City as it's freezing these days. The dress could be used for a dinner with friends or a date night. It could also work just as well for a night out with the girls.

Thank you so much for all your support and Happy New Year :)

Hi loves, TGIF - my favorite day of the week! Did you guys enjoy my previous post about New Year's Eve dress ideas? The Nicole Miller dress from Rent the Runway is an incredible deal. They also have a number of other choices at similar prices only during the holiday season. Besides the dresses I picked from Rent the Runway ,ASOS and Nastygal, there are many other great choices for NYE dresses at Topshop, Bebe, River Island, BCBG, Juicy Couture, Alice and Olivia and BB Dakota etc.

Generally speaking, a red dress with sequins is my favorite for New Year's Eve. Today's red lace dress is one that I wore to a holiday party earlier this month. It'd be great for New Year's Eve as well. It's extremely feminine and definitely gives off the holiday vibe. This pair of Valentino rockstud triple ankle strap pumps have been on my wish list forever and ever. When I stopped by the Valentino boutique in Rome during my trip to Italy, I decided to dive in and make the purchase. Each pair is handmade in Italy, so you can see and feel the quality. Purchasing a pair of Italiano shoes in Italy was so very special to me. When I wear these shoes, I’m always reminded of the good times I had in Italy. This pair has two styles, the double ankle strap design with a higher heel and the triple ankle strap with a lower heel, which is a tad bit prettier in my opinion. I prefer this one because of the frontal design of the shoe in addition to the low heel, which makes it super comfy and wearable all day and into the evening. Beautiful and comfortable – what’s not to like :)

I'm heading out of town tonight to spend Xmas with family and friends. I hope you all have a great and amazing holiday. I know you’ll look amazing at your holiday parties this weekend :P Thank you so much for reading! Happy Holidays! :)

Happy Tuesday, loves! How was your weekend? Hopefully, you didn’t get caught in the snow this past weekend in New York. I ended up doing a photo shoot while it was snowing, which I’ll share with you guys real soon. Did you guys all finish your Xmas gift shopping? It’s only one week away and I can’t wait to spend Xmas with family and friends.

Today's dress is from Lola Minx. Their dresses are designed and made in Chicago and are extremely aesthetic and Bohemian chic. I'm obsessed with winter whites these days, so I picked this white dress. It's a great look for the holidays since it’s comfy and flowy at the same time. I matched it with my new favorite boots from Casadei. I bought this pair in Rome on my recent trip to Europe. I had just visited the Spanish Steps and was strolling along window shopping and I literally jumped and shrieked at the same time when I saw the Casadei boutique. I couldn’t control my reaction because I’ve been in love with the brand for so long. It meant so much to me to be able to see the boutique in Italy let alone buy a pair of boots in Italy, where the shoes are designed and manufactured. Compared to my other pair of Casadeis, this pair is undoubtedly more classic. My favorite feature is the ultra thin heel. The thinner the heel the more feminine it is to me. I love feeling ultra-feminine. Casadei has a winter sale going on right now and this pair is 50% off. It's honestly one of the best sales I’ve come across for Casadei. Hopefully, you can find an amazing pair for yourself and thank you so much for reading :) XOXO

Happy Tuesday, loves! Hope you are having a great week. Have you finished purchasing all your Xmas gifts yet? I'm pretty much done with holiday gift shopping for family and friends and cannot wait for Xmas.

Today's outfit is the last outfit from my trip to Europe. Yes, my last stop was in Rome, Italy. When I was little, I watched the film starring Audrey Hepburn, Roman Holiday. Ever since then, Rome has always been on my list of places to visit. In Rome, I saw so many sites: the Trevi Fountain, the Colosseum, the Spanish Steps and the mouth of truth etc. I was so excited each time I visited a site from the movie and the scenes just replayed again in my mind. I’m a sap for the love story in Roman Holiday. And of course the cute little Vespa just added to my affection for the movie. Because of the film, I imagined Rome as an incredibly romantic city and it lived up to my expectations. I was able to go to some restaurants and meet a number of locals who were sweet and always helpful. The spaghetti alla carbonara, gelato and tiramisu were my favorites and I could eat them on repeat every day. The highlights of the trip for me, though, were seeing the San Gennaro collection of gems and jewelry from Naples and my visit to the Vatican where I finally saw the Creation of Adam inside the Sistine Chapel. Getting the chance to see all these sites meant so much to me. Rome is just an amazing city full of history, culture and legacy. Words cannot describe everything that I saw. Hopefully, you guys saw some pictures on my Instagram, but really the pictures cannot do it justice.

As for shopping, I really don’t think the prices are cheaper over there, but I was able to purchase some Italian brands at pretty reasonable prices. I can’t wait to show you guys these goodies over my next few blog posts :)

The cashmere sweater I wore is from QUINN NYC. I really love this sweater because it’s so soft, warm and comfy. The shape is also nice as well. It's a cute sweater with cable details. I love sweaters that are good quality and keep you warm the entire winter. I paired it with a 7 For All Mankind pair of skinny shimmer jeans. The boots are also chic and comfortable to walk around the city in especially when you’re traveling. Have a great Tuesday and enjoying the snow here in New York city:) XOXO

Happy Tuesday, loves! I'm back from an unforgettable trip to Europe. How was your Thanksgiving? Did you pick up any great deals on Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Hopefully, in addition to the gifts you purchased for family and friends, you also got something nice for yourself. I totally spoiled myself and cannot wait to share with you guys what I bought in Europe. 

My first stop on my Europe trip was London. I really enjoyed everything there such as English high tea, shopping at Ted Baker, Topshop and Harrods, and of course sightseeing under a light drizzling rain. London is such a cute city with their signature red phone booths, Big Ben and their native English accent. All of them brought a smile to my face.

Wearing white is always a good idea in London even come winter time. In my opinion it matches well with the backdrop of the city. I really love this white quilted skirt from Persun Mall. It's cute, affordable and versatile which makes it great to have during the holiday season. I completed this look with my new favorite structured tote bag by Sophie Hulme. I've been looking at this bag for some time now and I’ve debated with myself which color was worth the investment. I ended up deciding that black was the right color for me because I love wearing prints. If your closet is full of solids and darker colors then it might make sense to consider one of the brighter colors. Over the years, I’ve realized how much I love structured bags. Structured bags make your outfit instantly more stylish. This Sophie Hulme bag has already become an essential, go-to bag in my wardrobe.

The snake necklace and matching bracelets are from Capwell+Co. There is a sale going on for you guys right now. 20% off site wide. Code:SASA20. I hope you can find something you like too:)

I’m so glad to be back home in New York and posting regularly again. If there’s anything on your mind that you’d like to see and read about during the holidays you know how to reach me. XOXO
