Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving! I have a lot to be thankful for on this day, looking back at my past year! It's been a great ride and I thank you if you have been following or even reading my blog! I talked with my mom on the phone (in Boston) and they got a heavy snow storm, and she was telling me how they had to clean up all the snow. And I was bundled up in my bed in LA with the expected high to be 84 today... haha! Since it is so nice out, this special occasion calls for a cute skirt and some heeled sandals! I love the pale pink color of the skirt from Charlotte Russe paired with black highlight pieces! Simple black tank top was $1.90 from Forever 21! Can you believe it?

I recently bought the purse by Franco Sarto form Marshall's for only $20! I was looking for a small black crossover body purse since my favorite one had the strap snap, and this was perfect! It's small, fashionable, and it has a built in wallet so I can put all my cards and cash! My iPhone 6 fits perfectly as well! Only downside is I can't fit a lot into it.

These are some of my favorite photos. Let me know what you think of this outfit!

Coral and boots - perfect for LA "fall"

What's a girl to wear when it's still 60-70 in Los Angeles during the day but the temperatures drop to a chilly 55 in the evening? Being in lab all day, you lose track of the weather until I am ready to leave to go home for the evening. It might be warm on my walk to work but then when I leave I realize that the sun went down and it is chilly! Time to put my fall wardrobe to work, with the addition of almost knee-high boots to keep extra warm and a cardigan to cover up! I am in love with this coral top I received as a gift from my aunt in Cyprus from Debenhams. It is the perfect color and I love the print!

Top: Debenhams | Jeans: Zara | Boots: Target | Watch: Fossil | Wallet: Gift from family | Bracelets and Rings: H&M and Forever 21 | Necklace: Swarovski | Sunglasses: Armani Exchange

What do you think about this outfit for work? I think its perfect for both work and evening! Not too dressy, not too casual!

Fashion event in DTLA

FINALLY have my laptop back up and running after being out of commission for 3 months! Now back to more regular posting :)

I was recently invited to a Fashion event at a chic little boutique in downtown LA called 71Stanton. Hosted by FabCounsel and Sazan Barzani, we had a night of drinks, snacks, shopping, and a fashion show, styled by Sazan and modeled by some really awesome fashion bloggers! 
I left work "early" (5pm) to drive downtown and I was so happy I did! I had such a fun time!
The night started with some networking, socializing, and champagne. After the ice was broken and chatting with some friendly faces, a fashion show started, where fashion bloggers Mel from, Ruby from, and Rachael from showcased some amazing fashions using staple pieces from 71Stanton's AW 2015 collection! I loved them all! Everything looked so comfortable and so easy to style. Sazan did a great job styling pieces together! I had such a great time, I will definitely be back to add some pieces from the boutique to my closet! Here are some snap shots of the event and some of the outfits!

I didn't get a chance to get any pictures of my outfit but here's a selfie of my makeup!

What do you think about this event?
