Mrs.O


Just a lovely jeweled sweater from JCrew

I know this doesn't need to be said, we all love her but I just have to highlight some of my favorite Michelle Obama looks. She is one classy lady and always dresses to a T. Sometimes there is a monitions strand of belts but there is always something inspiring to see.

Her most recent at the State Dinner
Even Halloween is fabulous thanks to Mrs. O
The color is inspired love it
Gorgeous cover with a covetable necklace
Even Michelle loves the ruffles!

Birthday Recap


Me and My gift from Christina, lovely pearl chandelier earrings

This past weekend was my 22nd Birthday and thanks to a wonderful group of friends I was able to celebrate in style. The celebrations began Friday! A bunch of lovely ladies got dressed up and went out for asian fusion at Typhoon. The food was fantastic even though the waiter forgot my order! I munched on lettuce wraps and Spicy Typhoon Chicken and washed it all down with a yummie Mai Tai.

The Girls at Dinner

After dinner we went out for drinks at a little bar, where I tried my first sidecar. Let me tell ya it was delish! I especially loved the sugar rim it made my lips nice and sweet! The table ordered these huge chocolate cupcakes which were served with homemade whip cream and we ate them up so quickly it was unbelievable. Then my cutie puttie friend Christina (check out her blog here it's fantastic) made everyone go around the table and say why they love me, which was so cute. I learned I was a "pool of knowledge" and that my outfits and cooking make them all jealous.

We were very excited to see her.

The next morning (the actual B-day) two friend met me for breakfast at Paramount. I had Texas Style French Toast topped with Fresh Fruit and a side of yummie bacon. We then walked over to the Science Museum to meet up with the rest of the Harry Potter group. My friend Kat (check out her blog here) came in from Miami and was a big burst of sunshine to my weekend and since we are both Harry Potter obsessed it made the exhibit that much better.
Jumping for joy!

Unfortunately we couldn't take pictures inside the exhibit but they had Ronald's Knight outside for me to pose with so it made me happy. The exhibit was really cool I was sorted (Gryffindor obviously!) and then we were led past the Hogwarts Express and into different rooms of the movies. We stopped in the Gryffindor common room, saw Umbridge's pink office and pulled mandrakes out of their pots to hear their screams! We also got to throw Quaffles through goal posts! It was awesome to see all the different costumes and props of the movies! The only down side was that it wasn't very interactive, we all had wished the tour guides/guards were in character as Hogwarts students.

Super excited for 'arry

After 'arry we went to the galleria for a little shopping and junk food. From there I went home and took a wonderful nap, I love naps so much it was fantastic to take one my birthday! After my nap I got ready for the night ahead with roomie and Christina and had cupcakes and some bubbly.

We then met up with a fellow birthday girl for drinks and shenanigans at a local bar. The bar wasn't the most elegant but it had dollar drafts and those are always welcome. I was also a very spoiled girl for presents included lovely pearl chandelier earrings, UP on dvd, Pride and Prejudice, Chanel Chance perfume, a lovely and soft pashmina, and a super cute sketch book with chairs on the cover.

The weekend was a success I even managed to finish my 65% submittal for my thesis research! Im excited to head home on Wednesday for Turkey Day and Birthday activities with the family.

Sequins are not usually my thing they are a little too dance recital for me, but during the holidays or just the winter in general sequins are a nice touch to a simple outfit.


They can dress up a pair of jeans or make your simple cardi seem festive. Check out a few of my favorite sequin pieces.

Ruffles Overload.

Since this is my birthday week I have decided to do a post a day about trends in fashion that I am just loving! Here's the first edition..


Once upon a time there was a girl who wasn't too keen on ruffles..I'm not sure what happened to her. Because lately I am completely obsessed! Most people think of Jerry's puffy shirt when they hear ruffles.

I think of luxury and elegance. Ruffles are such a classic touch to an outfit but yet they can be edgy on a red Louie.






Take a peak at some of my favorite ruffled pieces.

1. Birling Ruffle Coat, Anthropologie
2. Gathered Together Dress, Anthropologie
3. Wrapped in Ruffles Jacket, Anthropologie
5. Dillan Red, Christian Louboutin
6. Zipper Ruffle Clutch, BCBGeneration
7.Buenos Aires Dress, ModCloth (totally reminds me of this dress from GG)
10. Cashmere Squiggle Scarf, Anthropologie

1. Frilled Heels, Anthropologie
7. Sound Waves Dress, Anthropologie
8. Settling Petals Cardi, Anthropologie
