Ankle Boot Lover!

This weekend I traveled home to visit my family in Kansas City, Missouri. Every time I travel home, I find myself shopping and shopping and shopping.  I'm not sure if it because I'm "traveling" or I find the best deals. I think it's a little bit of both.

The last time I was in Kansas City, I found a great pair of nude suede ankle boots.  Thinking luck might strike twice, I went out to find more boots! The ankle boots are great for girls who are 5'3 and below.  It still gives us the height when we want to look casual with boots and we don't have to cover up half of our leg to wear them! This winter I'll be wearing more ankle boots.  You'll notice that 90% of women wear high boots because they are easy to slip on with any pair of skinny jeans. On the other hand, how great do leather ankle boots look with skinnies?!? Adorable!Try them out the next time you're making a boot purchase.  Make sure you wear your skinny jeans.  I think you'll be surprised!

Here are the newest members to my shoe collection.  I found some great buys!





Which is your favorite?

DIY Lace Accents

Do you ever have beloved clothing in your closet that you bought and thought "if I lose a few lbs, I could totally fit into this!"? Well, I have a few of those items.  As I get older, I think I'm finally starting to learn...what fits me in the dressing room, will probably fit me when I get out of the dressing room. 

This dress I bought a few years ago.  It's a Banana Republic wool dress, sleeveless with a high neckline.  After several attempts trying to fit into a 00 (what was I thinking). I finally decided to reconstruct my dress and make it a masterpiece! I found this beautiful lace fabric with a silver background.  The tuxedo pants are one of the biggest trends in fashion, thought it would be fun to apply the same concept to this dress.

So when you think you want to throw your favorite dress out, take it to a seamtress and have her alter it to your liking.  Or take out your sewing kit and spice things up!

Love the added pleats in the back.


Take scissors right up the sides!

Napa in November

In the Bay Area we've been blessed with amazing weather in October and November.  Where else to spend a beautiful Saturday besides....Napa Valley.  This is one of my favorite places in California.  Everyone is always in a good mood and I always come home with a case full of vino!

Typically I wear a color dress when we take a trip up to Napa. Today I decided to dress down and wear my favorite boots and peplum top. I'm a fan of black and white.  I mixed a few patterns with a splash of color.

Enjoy the pics!
