I recently made tutu skirts and sewed them to white tank tops for a friend’s wedding earlier this month. I was stressed to the max because I wanted it to come out perfectly! I mean…it’s a wedding after all~ I scoured downtown LA for the perfect shade of tulle, the best ribbon for the waist band (in the exact shade of raspberry pink) and wahla! Here are the final dresses:
I’m trying to figure out if this is something I should add to my Etsy store or only take personal orders from friends? If I do sell on Etsy, which Store? What do you guys think?
Can’t wait to get my hands on these babies…
I LOVE reading blogs as much as I love to write in them. I probably have about 400 blogs in my google-reader that I go through whenever I can~ But out of all of those, I have a few that I am excited to read the posts about~ Here are my top10 of the moment <3 In Alpha Order =)
Atlantic-Pacific, Enjoying the Small Things, Fashion Toast, From Head to Toe, Holly Ann-AeRee, HRH Collection, Rockstar Diaries, Something Navy, Song of Style, Whatshouldwecallme
And Blogs I love to read from my friends <3
Empire State of Mom, Merry Robin, Mrs. Anna Lee, Oolie + Aahlie, Pak-a-Punch, Teresa Goan
And of course…must plug in my food blog <3
Gosh…I can’t help but write about these things~ they’re so perfect for the spring/summer and they’re so easy to match with anything!
LOVE how a little neon goes a long way! Plus the pop of salmon adds a great balance to the neutral colors <3
I am SO FREAKING EXCITED for them!!! After all their infertility, breast cancer, chemo, drama…
They know the baby’s sex but aren’t revealing it yet. The Rancic’s are having the baby via surrogate since it’s been quite difficult for them to conceive naturally (the baby is 100% theirs). Congratulations Rancic’s! You deserve the absolute best <3
This spring/summer I have a ton of girls trips and bachelorettes planned <3 I’m an obsessive packer and prefer to only bring one small carry on (no matter how short/long the trip). Here are some awesome tips for you guys!
1. A small piece of plastic wrap can make all the difference when packing. Never thought about this!
2. Pot holder to flat or curling iron holder.
1. Shower caps for shoes
2. Washcloth Travel Pouch
For Christmas 2012, Markel made e the most incredible wine rack (from scratch and without nails!) Since then we’ve collected wine corks for the top, stained it a few more times, and then filled it up with LOTS of wine bottles <3 I’m a huge Wine-Freak and this was by far the most thoughtful gift EVER!
Recently, Markel’s grandparents gave him a few of their decanter bottles and we filled them with 2 different kinds of scotch and brandy! (Markel’s favorites). Our wine rack is now complete and I can’t wait to have a party and entertain! xoxo
My brother’s getting married in July in Oahu, HI. He’s lived there for over 10 years and he’s fallen in love with the culture and people! I can’t blame him! lol
Since the fashion and weather are different in HI than CA, I’m trying to figure out what kind of dress to wear. Something that’s wedding appropriate, but also cool and comfortable to wear in the humid, July heat!
Here’s my inspiration board for now…(courtesy of piperlime. DOI)

I recently bought a “soft” blazer from forever21 and have FALLEN IN LOVE! It’s the best, lightweight jacket~ the lack of structure also fits perfectly with my spring/summer wardrobe and creates a whimsical look! Like i said in my previous post, I like to try out trendy looks/new styles at F21 first before deciding to invest in more expensive pieces. This soft blazer is a definite keeper and I’m eager to get a few more styles from (you guessed it)…PIPERLIME!
I bought this in white for $19.80
Some more styles from F21:

I bought this ring last September, along with gorgeous heart earrings and I LOVE it. Not only was the seller incredibly sweet, but the products were well made and lived up to their description online. If you’re interested, please check out her shop today!
Many of her other designs are gorgeous, well-priced, and gold/silver fill so they don’t tarnish!
Here are some other pieces I LOVE:
