Crazy, Beautiful, Almost Magical, Painful Life










The weather still may be warm but I know in my heart, the California sunlight is soon to vanish. Perhaps I am being a little dramatic but we Californians are spoiled. We want our sunlight year round. I know scarves are cute and all but I want to wear dresses all the time. I decided for a little change though. I wore this outfit because I wanted to feel good about myself. I recently had a bad day. I lost my ID card, practically had a heart attack registering for classes and lost one of my credit cards. Luckily, I found my credit card but I still have not found my ID card, which is like at least 25 dollars.  So yes, you could say I hit a bump in the road but guess what? You only have bad days so you can know the good ones. Sometimes beauty and pain come together. My random deep thoughts of the day.

Back to the outfit, I love the fit and the color of my jeggings. Yes, jeggings are a thing and people just need to accept this. They are Calvin Klein which explains why they are so form fitting and adorable. The blouse is from EchoPaul. Isn't it gorgeous. I feel like it is the perfect touch of both feminism and power. I just feel so classy in it. (: Lastly, my shoes are Chinese Laundry. I was really excited to wear these shoes but as all black flats go-there has to be some flaw. I wore this for about four hours and by the end of that time, both of my back heels were bleeding. Needless to say, my experience with these shoes were painful. But overall, I had a fantastic weekend. Special shout out to my friend, Victoria, who this entire weekend listened to my silly boy problems, went to THREE events with me (how did she not go insane with me is a mystery) and took these gorgeous photos. Thanks Vic.

The Lady In Red






I can't believe it's already November. Of course, you really can't assign seasons in California-the weather is pretty much the same. Yesterday it was 65 degrees and I thought it is freezing!! Then my preacher said, "You Californians are weak. If you want to know cold, come to Denver, Colorado then you can complain. Cold is when you have to wake up at 3 a.m. to shovel snow from the driveway so you can get to work on time." After that I decided I have no right to complain….Anyways, my cousin's wedding was this weekend and of course I had to wear the reddest dress I could find. Hey..you only get so many opportunities in life to dress up and I take all of them that I can get. It's really rare to see me dressed casual. Once when I was in gym clothes one of my friend came up to me and said, "Are you okay? You aren't dressed up today." I thought that was hilarious but it's definitely true I am not particularly a fan of how I came out in these pictures but I just wanted to share with my followers. (: My inspiration was Elie Saab. I am absolutely obsessed with his wedding dresses and I hopefully one day I will get to own one. <3

Back to my winter rant, I am looking forward to scarves, pantyhose and hot cocoa. Oh and of course, to see the rest of the Walking Dead and Once Upon A Time. What are you looking forward to?
