Today’s outfit showcases my interpretation of the “grunge look.” I consider myself too old to pull off full on grunge, so I urbanized my look by adding chic details — like the tassel earrings and thigh high nylon socks. Aren’t these earrings adorable?! I got them for $4.68 and I love the quality!!!

Black tassel earrings | $4.68

Gold hair cuff | $4.90

Thigh high nylons | $7.98

Black tank | $3.53

Platform lace up ankle boots | $34.62

Don’t you love how most of the interesting items I buy are dirt cheap?! Hahahhaa

The killer spiked out leather cuff was my mom in law’s. She gave it to me because I stared at it with hungry eyes. I bought the oversized olive jacket in Korea. My distressed shorts are Dolce & Gabbana and my tote is from Louis Vuitton. Affordable distressed shorts, similar olive jackets, and my Gucci sunglasses are linked in the slider below.


Gladiator Glory

IMG_4547I bought these illusion tunnel earrings from Aliexpress a while ago and can’t find them anywhere. But, there’s a similar pair available on Amazon (here).


Gladiators are the sandals that never seem to go out of style. Sported by Goddesses long ago and trendy fashionistas today — this post is a tribute to the gladiator glory.

I braved the mountains of Utah and hiked up 30 feet up from where I parked my car, to stand atop treacherous rocks and sport these sandals that emulate strength and courage.


The amazing gladiator heels I’m wearing are from Qupid. They always have very affordable and stylish designs. I couldn’t find this exact pair, but here’s a similar pair from the same company under $30 (here).

My mominlaw actually gave me the gladiators I’m wearing. She took them out of her closet and I stared at them with hungry eyes…VERY hungry eyes. Haha. She is the coolest mominlaw, ever.

I found this houndstooth skirt and black tweed collared blouse in Korea.

I am wearing the beautiful Louis Vuitton vernis shoulder bag in amarante.

Tie-Dye, Sparkles, & the Eiffel Tower








 Disney princesses on the sidewalk ^.^



The Eiffel Tower is also beautiful at night! After the tower illuminates a magnificent gold, the sparkling light show occurs every hour on the hour for about 5 minutes until 1am. I love it. My white crop top is from H&M ($4) ,the tye-dye maxi is from a small boutique in Venice (€10), the Louis Vuitton purse is worn here, and the leather nude booties were also worn here .

I hope everyone is surviving through the winter cold fashionably! My next post will showcase my first winter look. I’m in Utah right now, and snow has only recently begun to fall .
