Chanel Mini for petite me

I did some shopping! My mini purse collection has expanded once again. 

I have always wanted a Chanel mini flap bag but was waiting for the right combination that would make my heart sing. I originally was thinking about the mini black with black hardware, but when the sales associate said she had an iridescent caviar chevron mini, I was intrigued. Once she sent over the pics, I was in awe. The iridescent leather has a purplish tint in some angles and green/blue in another. It is absolutely beautiful. I could already picture myself using this bag whenever and wherever.  The purse is extremely light and it has 2 inner pockets (one with a zipper) and an exterior pocket. Versatility, functionality, and beauty. I had to have it!

Feel free to check out my unboxing photos! Sadly the iridescent purple/green tint is pretty difficult to capture in my home. Will have to try again next time. :D

Like the Sky and Shadows: Denim dress + Chanel Boy

It's been a while but it is good to be back. The heat is slowly creeping up on us, and it is now dress weather! For this beautiful Sunday, I chose this awesome denim dress from Anthropologie. It is made of a really soft denim and loose fit, which is perfect for the Spring breezes and also my not so ready bikini bod.

Bringing the sun: Rag&Bone + Suede Skirt

It is once again stormy here in SF. Dark, wet, and windy. Today, I am your sunshine. Here to brighten up your day and hopefully bring a smile to your face. If that didn't work, maybe this will... this cashmere sweater is currently still available at Nordstrom Rack in a variety of sizes. It is soft, warm, fuzzy, and brightens up any closet, room, office you walk into. 

Stay dry and safe, my friends.

Classics for the win

When I am shopping, I try to find items that I can wear for a long time. It is hard to find petite clothes that fit right so when I find them, I need to make sure they will stand the test of time. Who knows when I will find more clothes that will fit?! It's also an excuse I have used on my husband when we happen to walk by great pieces that may not be wallet friendly. (this dress was a steal though. no convincing needed!) 

Nothing more classic than black and white, am I right?! This is one of my favorite dresses. First of all, it stretches. Second of all, the colors, cut, fit means I can dress it up or down and will go for many occasions. From the office, to a night out with the girls. This dress has the versatility to come with me to practically any event.

Allergy weather

My nose certainly thinks Spring is here. It is still kind of chilly at times though. I was able to score this very petite friendly sweater from J.Crew (the sleeve length is surprisingly fitting). Of course it has extra buttons that add to the normally plain cream colored sweater. And yes, my pants are from the girl's section of Nordstrom's. It can be hard to find black pants in the children's department, but when you do, no alterations are needed!

Comfort Saturday: Gray sweater + Nano Luggage

I am having a love affair with Rag & Bone lately. Their quality and styles fit into my lifestyle easily. Most importantly, they have sizes that start at 23 waist and XXS tops. 

For this beautiful and slightly warmer Saturday grocery run, I chose a loose fit gray sweater (I love gray sweaters). I am drawn to the different tones of gray and also the texture of this sweater. It adds more to the outfit than just plain ol' gray sweater (although there is nothing wrong with that). The loose fit allows it to be easily layered, and wool means I can wear it in all year long!! 

The Celine Nano luggage tote is one of my favorite purses. It is very functional and gives a classic silhouette a more modern update. The strap is pretty long for me, but a simple knot helps position the tote at a more comfortable height. It also fits quite a bit and the crossbody shoulder strap means I can have my hands free to grab food.

Happy Valentine's Day!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Valentine's day <3

I am not really one to celebrate this hallmark of a holiday, but it occurred to me while I was standing in line at the supermarket with all the heart shaped balloons, cards, candy, flowers, etc... This Valentine's Day is not just going to be about spreading joy and love to others, but also, and most importantly, to love yourself. Do something today that makes you happy. I'm going to be sitting on my couch, with a bowl of spaghetti, some wine, in front of the TV and watch what I feel like on Netflix!!

What are your plans this Valentine's Day?

xoxo 😘 😘

Black and Blue: It's all in the details

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I am currently still overcoming a cold and cough, but since there is a break in the rainstorms, I decided to crawl out of bed. 

I prefer to keep my outfits pretty simple and have little details to make them more special. 

Still trying to keep myself warm, I opted for this blue sweater. OH, but it isn't just a sweater... it's a wool mock turtleneck sweater with gold button details on the shoulder! Underneath is my UNIQLO heat tech crew neck shirt because I didn't want to feel the wind between the knits. :) I threw on the sweater with a pair of blue jeans and my trusty Aquatalia boots that can be worn rain OR shine. 

I grabbed my small Chanel boy because I was trying to psych myself out. When you look good, you FEEL good, right?? :D I have always been a big fan of the Chanel Boy theme. I purchased a wallet on chain boy in Paris ~2 years ago and I just knew I wanted needed to add another small boy to my handbag collection. What drew me to this particular Chanel boy bag, was the pleated chevron details. It is a great twist from the classic Chanel quilted pattern, which my boy WOC already possessed. These chevron pleated details is exactly what gives my two boy bags completely different looks, whilst still being a BOY. 

Thanks for reading! have a wonderful Sunday :) 

comfortable and warm

BOY am I thrilled

Happy Superbowl weekend!! 

I am pleased to add a Chanel Boy bag to my closet! (My wallet weeps as I am typing this). It is from the Spring/Summer 2017 pre-collection. I have always been really drawn to the Chanel Boys because I find it edgy and chic. The boy bag brings extra details to my pretty minimalist wardrobe in an easy way. Check out my first look with the boy below!

Happy Lunar New Year: suede skirt + purple blouse

Happy Lunar New Year, everyone! I wish everyone a wonderful year of the rooster. May your days be filled with happiness, great health, and great food!

My family always a get together and has a great dinner prepared by my very own, chef mama. I mostly just eat away and collect on the lucky red envelopes. Don't worry, I also help do the dishes. :p What are your Lunar New Year traditions?

I don't have very much red, so I thought I'd wear burgundy and purple instead. This skirt is awesome because of the elastic waistband and the beautiful draping. It allows me to devour delicious food while ever expanding with my food baby grows. The vegan suede is also soft and warm for the chilly nights. 

The purple sleeveless blouse is one of my favorites. It is a great layering piece that can be easily worn with dress pants, jeans, skirts, and even over dresses. It will definitely get a lot of use. Also, it is on sale! 

Also, I am living in my Aquatalia Rhumba boots this winter. They are very comfortable, practical, and goes with so much of my wardrobe.

Night out: scalloped sweater + knife pleated skirt

I love to pair a cropped sweater with a skirt because it gives the illusion my legs are longer (but mostly because it hides my midriff).

This sweater has been on repeat this winter because it keeps me so warm and has cute scalloped details. To make walking more fun, I decided to pair it with a skirt that has great movement and beautiful knife pleats.
Both pieces are from Aritzia, which is one of my favorite stores. They carry sizes starting from xxxs (perfect for pixel sized me!). 

Yes, the skirt has pockets 

comfortable shoes are a must

I love the way this skirts moves with me

All about me

Welcome to my first blog post!

It all started when I began my Instagram account and I realized there was more I wanted to say about my photos.

Here are a few things you didn't know about me. I am very petite, standing at only 4'11 and a shoe size of 4. It has always been a struggle for me to find clothing that doesn't overwhelm my frame AND appropriate for my age. With many years of researching and sifting through the internet and shopping malls, I have finally found some designers and brands that I feel are actually petite friendly. I try to keep my style very simple, classic, and versatile. It takes a while to find pieces I love, so having them interchangeable and standing the test of time is a major plus.

SO, if you are also petite like a pixel or you are just curious, tune in to see my attempts to avoid looking like a very young adult!
