My Valentine’s Day Look

DSC06403 Happy Valentine’s Day my loves!  I hope you all are getting showered with hugs and kisses from all your loved ones today!

My honey and I tend to celebrate Valentine’s Day not on the actual day.  We love doing the gorgeous pre-fix menus with wine pairing meals but sometimes it’s nice to go out a few days later and have the place to ourselves.  This year, we’re celebrating our 5th Valentine’s Day together later this weekend (plans still a little TBD).  I wanted to give you all a little sneak peek of my what I’ll be wearing!

The Diane von Furstenberg and Andy Warhol Collaboration is so colorful and amazing!  It basically spoke to me!  Now isn’t that a good enough excuse to purchase?  It’s a perfect nice but not over the top look.

Did I mention it's fun to twirl in?!

Fashion Week San Diego: Day 1



FWSD lookFashion Week San Diego is finally here!  After watching weeks of fantastic fashion activity from around the world, it’s our turn to have some fashion fun!  Night 1 kicked off with the Art & Beauty Behind Fashion event.  We got to listen to industry experts about upcoming trends for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.  We also got some amazing tips to recreate some of the hair looks we saw on the runway into wearable everyday looks.  One of the panelists, Dean Hall of HALL & SAKS,  even gave me a shout out because of my super loud McQ Alexander McQueen dress!  If you ever wanted to see me blush to a deep shade of red, that was your moment!

One of my favorite discussions was about upcoming nail trends.  I love nail trends so for me it was really exciting!  The co-founder of CND, Jan Nordstrom Arnold, gave us some really great inspirations for the coming months.  I’ll share more of her tips in another post.  Stay tuned!

Fashion shows will take over for the next 3 nights and I couldn’t be more excited.  It’s so inspiring to see the designers’ imaginations come to life.  I’ll be taking photos and posting them on my social media and on the blog so make sure you’re following me for the most up-to-date news!  Here are some night 1 highlights.

Vixen Boutique White Party and Fashion Show

White Party

One of my favorite things to do is go to fashion events, especially fashion shows.  It’s great to see what’s up and coming in the fashion world and, of course, it gives me an excuse to dress up!  The Vixen Boutique Anniversary White Party did not disappoint.  Located at the La Jolla Hotel Hiatus pool and bar, it was a perfectly beautiful spot for my honey and I to be tempted by gorgeous jewelry, clothing, and accessories.  The atmosphere was full of music, style, and fashion… nothing gets better than that!!
