I am loving bright blue handbags right now. I think the pop of blue is unexpected yet classy. I love this Yves St. Laurent bag but it is way too expensive ($1,450). This Marc by Marc Jacobs is way more affordable, it's even on sale at Nordstrom's ($285.90 originally $428).

Valentine's Day is coming up and I could not resist these heart goodies! I love Valentine's Day because of all the pink and red heart stuff and of course the excuse to eat chocolate! This heart silk top is so cute from Forever 21 ($17.80) perfect for a Valentine's Date. I loved this heart belt from Top Shop ($32) and this heart purse is so cute from Bebe ($98).

I was so happy to hear a few months ago that Asos, a British company I fell in love with in London, will now be shipping to the U.S. I was even happier to hear that they offer free shipping both ways!! Asos is similar to Top Shop in that they offer unique clothing items that are affordable. I am really into silk blouse tops right now and fell in love with this black dress, it has a really cute pattern and has a zipper detail on the back ($60.34). I also loved this red top ($86.20). The ruffle dress in a dusty pink color is also really pretty. ($60.34). Asos is definitely a great site to check out if you want a unique dress and don't want to pay a fortune. Cute accessories too!

With the weather in Los Angeles completely changing this week, hello 80 degrees and the first Victoria Secret swim suit catalog in my mail I am already lusting for summer. While looking at Forever 21's website I came across these adorable skirts. I love the stripped skirt with the bow and zipper detail back ($15.80). I also loved this floral jean skirt, perfect for the beach ($14.80). Lastly, if you know me.. you know I LOVE pink and with my 25th birthday coming up and a Vegas trip planned this skirt definitely caught my eye ($14.80).

I love that Target does collaborations with big name designers. It truly makes fashion pieces more affordable to all. I have been a long time fan of Dolce Vita shoes. In fact, my favorite pair of sandals I own are Dolce Vita gladiators. I was so excited when they partnered with Target to do a line but when the shoes came out I was underwhelmed and very disappointed. The only shoes they had were boots with overdone buckles and oxfords. I was very excited to see their new wedges which are super cute($29.99)...now I only need to decide which color dark brown, tan, or black. I was also excited about the William Rast collection out now. I love the brown leather jacket ($199.99) but hopefully it will come down in price. I think it is an awesome piece and could be very versatile. I also thought these booties ($39.99) were really cute too!

A few weeks ago I was up in San Francisco and was shopping at Anthro and found this awesome blazer on sale. Unfortunately, they did not have my size. While talking with a friend of mine who does the visuals for the Pasadena store, she informed me that they had just received a bunch of the blazers. Luckily enough they had my size and it was reduced even further ($59.96, normally $158). I also could not resist these sweet tea towels which I plan on giving to my cousin for her upcoming wedding. The towels come in a set of three "They fell in love" "They got married" and "They lived happily ever after". They remind me of towels that our Grandma used to have and I know she will love them as much as I do! ($42 for three). A perfect bridal shower gift.

I have been a long time fan of Marshalls. Although at times it is trying as you peruse through the overstuffed racks, one glorious find makes it all worth it. A few weeks ago I took a trip to the Marshalls in Pasadena and had the find of the century....the pink and glittery Kate Spade Charm heels that I had been lusting over at Nordstrom a few weeks prior. Although they were still expensive, I could not pass them up as they are still full price at Nordstroms right now ($325). I decided to wear them for New Years and I'm sure I will get tons more use out of them....I'm in love!

I have forever wanted to start my own blog but have been putting it off for far too long now. I decided that with the start of the new year I would brave the blogging world and finally start mine! I wish you all a happy, healthy new year and courage to try something new! I hope you enjoy what inspires me. xoxo
