Dying over these Saint Laurent booties!! My dream shoes ❤ Because a girl can’t have enough pink or glitter in her closet!!

Can I just say, this shoe is truly a piece of art. It is just so beautiful(swoon), I don’t think I would want to wear it out and risk ruining them!!!! But then again, if I had the privilege of wearing Carrie Bradshaw’s iconic shoe, who knows, I could probably rule the world!

A girl can dream right?? 😀

 

Paris is always a good idea

My little sister came to visit me in London for the holidays, so naturally we took a weekend trip to Paris. I took her to see all my favorite spots, and also took her to some of the hidden gems I’ve discovered while lost. I don’t know what is it, but this city always feels so magical and full of cliches(which I love) Sometimes I feel like in my past life I was Parisian, and every time I visit Paris, I feel like I’ve found what I’ve  been missing. There is nothing better then showing a loved one Paris for the first time. We had a great weekend, and I hope to come back soon.

Paris…… Je t’aime ❤

Flower Power

Hair of the day lol! This weekend, I purchased this awesome flower crown at the Clothes Show Live event in Birmingham. They also sell these at Old Spitafields market, and at poppydaisy.com! I’m loving this color 🙂

Outfit of the day: PINK

It keeps getting colder here in London! So, naturally I keep adding layers of clothes! Here is my outfit of the day 🙂
I usually wear a lot of black, but add a contrasting color. My favorite coat at the moment is this bright pink one by H&M ❤️ Actually, everything I’m wearing is by H&M lol! Feel free to leave my comments and blog links!

Swedish Fashion Exhibition

A couple weeks ago, I traveled to Paris. A friend of mine took me to l’institut Suedois in Le Marais. There was an exhibition on Swedish fashion. It was very interesting, they had some amazing pieces, and also photography. Some of the dresses were made of paper, and some of them were knitted pieces.

Latte of the day <3

Oh My God! I died and went to heaven. So I went to Fernandez and Wells at Somerset house here in London. I ordered my usual latte, and also their Marrakech Orange Cake (with rose petals).  It was the best cake I have ever eaten! If you guys are ever in London, definitely stop by this coffee shop!

Horst Exhibit: V&A

For  one of my classes, we went on a field trip to the Victorian & Albert museum. They had an exhibit on Horst, the father of fashion photography.

It was a collection of photographs throughout his successful career as a photographer. I really enjoyed it, and think that he was truly amazing at what he did. He captured the elegance and glamour of the women in his pictures.

I wasn’t allowed to take pictures, but here are some of my favorites!! Enjoy 🙂

In one of my classes we are researching Androgyny, and we have been looking at its origins in fashion.  So these are some photos that I thought were androgynous:

Feels Like Fall <3

Unlike Southern California, we actually have proper Fall weather here in London! It is both a curse and a blessing. Mostly a blessing.  I love Fall fashion, and have been doing some light shopping here in London……..and by light I mean I have been in control of my shopaholic habits…..partly due to how expensive everything is in London. Not to mention the Dollar to Pound exchange(I could cry). Anyway, here is another OOTD type post. Hope you like it 😀

Moved to London!

So for the past 2 months I’ve been living in London!

I am studying abroad here for the semester. I have been lucky enough to explore this amazing city all over again! There is so much going on all the time, and you can never get enough of London.

The first week I was here, the University gave us a tour of East London Street Art. There were some amazing works on the streets, and here are some pictures of what I was able to capture:
