Gloomy May Wardrobe

What’s up with this weather??  It’s May 24th and I’m still wearing uggs and thick sweaters.  I understand that the East Coast can sometimes exhibit wack weather but LA??  CALIFORNIA??

When I should be laying out at the beach each weekend and wearing sun dresses~ I’m always bundled up with a huge scarf and thick cardigans.  *shudder*  This is my ode to the cold weekend and week ahead~

Jessica Matrasko Jewelry: 50% off Insider Discount today!

A year ago, my friend invited me to a jewelry party at her house and I went thinking it would be some sort of tacky Tupperware party for housewives.  Boy was I surprised!  I walked into a room of deliciously decorated jewelry on stands, gorgeous fabrics and display stands.  Jessica Matrasko’s jewelry has truly changed my life.  Each piece is handmade 24k or 14k gold-fill, and 24k gold plated plant and ocean life.  Even if you and your friends all order the same item, because each stone is so unique, you’ll never get the exact same piece.  I love knowing that my jewelry is one of a kind!

TODAY AND TOMORROW ONLY~~~ there’s a 50% off insider discount (use the code: “insider” at checkout).

Shoe-gasm

Shoes are definitely my weakness.  If you walked into my room and saw all my stuff, it would actually come as a surprise~ especially since I have three closets worth of clothes… But Shoes are without a doubt my favorite thing to shop for, lust after, and purchase!  After starting my job at UCLA, I began to wear flats more in an attempt to be “more professional”.  However…the gladiators and trendy flats probably took me BACK a few steps.  oh well~

But the higher the better for me.  I’ve been a bit out of practice with heels since I stopped wearing them to work everyday, but stilettos and sky-high wedges are the ideal shoes to wear for all occasions.  With clothes, I don’t mind shopping at forever 21 or target.  But with shoes…only Nordstrom and Piperlime for me!
