Chanel spells trouble

For the longest time I was debating on getting another Chanel or not, I'm the type of person that cannot make up my mind when it comes to handbag, I'll bounce from one bag to another to another. Isn't it just easier if i could have it all? I think so, anyways while I was on lunch yesterday, work was sooo slow I wonder into Chanel with a guy friend of mines to get a second opinion, the selection of wallet on chains they carry at the Chanel in San Francisco is heartbreaking :( however the WOC i had been wanting for a while was just lying there so serene, I put her on and i knew she had to be mine! And 20 minutes later she was mine :)

i took her out last night while we went barhopping around geary and polk for a friends birthday, and by far the most practical bag ever! i'm in love and so the obsession continues ...

Balenciaga and Spain Exhibit

I had an amazing time accompanying a girlfriend of mines to the De Young Museum to view couture dresses, runway pieces, and hats from Balenciaga! Some of the dresses are to die for, all I wanted to do was to cause a scene and steal a dress. But security was lurking around at every corner enforcing the "no photography" policy. Seriously? It's BALENCIAGA!

The last postcard features a lace detail dress with a silk bow, and i'm in LOVE with that dress. If you're in San Francisco swing by the De Young Museum Balenciaga's collection will be there til July 4, 2011.

Weekend Getaway Inspirations

Good morning everyone! It's another gorgeous but cold day in the city. Over the weekend I took advantage of the sunshine and was venturing in and out of the San Francisco bay area. Nature inspires me in how the sun hit objects and makes it beautiful, or the gentle tides making its way inland. So let me share some photo's with you!
what inspires you?

Shoe Mania

I'm usually very skeptical about buying shoes online because I'm the type of person that has to try on the shoe in store, walk around, and find out whether it is comfortable or not. Plus I like to inspect the shoe for any flaws it might have. Yeah I'm a little weird, but we all have our quirks. I wear anywhere from a 5 to a 6 in my heels & flats, but it usually depends on the brand and the cut. Normally I just go with a 6 just to be on the safe side. So let me share my goodies! When I receive packages I feel like its Christmas, except it comes more than just once a year. I get super excited even though I know what is already coming!

Mia Quincy wedges, I love love LOVE the cut out details on these wedges. They would be perfect with a pair of jeans, or a dress! These have a 3.5inch wedge $49.95 at DSW

Mia Greta Wedge Pumps, I had originally seen a girl in class rockin these shoes, and I was like "i need to have those!"well after tracking them down I found them at DSW, 4 inch wedges, with zipper details, this is the modern version of the Mary janes! $49.95 as well

oh man, shoe fever has struck and its here to stay

my current obsessions

Lately I've been obsessed with random little things from something as small as a cute teddy bear to a classic Chanel flap. Working in the heart of Union Square in San Francisco I'm constantly surrounded by designer goods I'm talking Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Prada, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, and the list continues. Lets face it I'm in designer heaven! But buying another baby means $$$ and juggling school and work it gets a little tricky. So here are some things I've been obsessed with:
  1. Coconut water: I don't know what it is, it could be the vitamins, it could be the flavor, but lately I've been obsessed with coconut water, too bad it doesn't come in an actual coconut, I mean how cool would that be?
  2. Marc Jacob Cashmere scarves: I'm in LOVE with these scarves you have no idea. They have become my daily staple when I head off to class in the morning or when I'm off running errands I can not get over how soft these scarves are and how they keep my neck warm I love it.
  3. Juicy Couture tracksuit hoodies: you can call me biased or whatever but i love the quality of these hoodies, the Petites hug my frame so perfectly I'm practically called the queen of velour!
  4. Spring Dresses: living in San Francisco i say we get some sun, but not enough to break out spring and summer dresses, I mean don't get me wrong i love the mid 60's temperature all year around, but mother nature could be a little more nice and bring out the sun, just saying...
  5. Wedges: I've been doing a lot of online shopping, i wear converses and flats to class, but when I'm at work or grabbing dinner with some girlfriends I'm rocking sky high heels, hey the taller the better. But when I'm shopping in department stores and online shopping, I've been attracted to wedges, talk about spring fever
I should just stay away from online shopping, its a drug and I just can't get enough. But I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. One day this so called "recession" we're in is gonna hit this fashionista! Until then I think I'll continue to shop. Shop til you drop <3
