Mara Hoffman Sample Sale Finds

Yesterday I went to the Mara Hoffman sample sale in Los Angeles.  Not only was this the designer's first sample sale in Los Angeles, Hoffman was present at her sample sale and made sure everything ran smoothly.  The sale was full of dresses, tops, shorts, and hundreds of swimsuits all at great prices.  Check out my finds below!





Free People Surf Collection

One of my favorite brands, Free People, has created a surf collection.  The collection is full of colorful prints and great silhouettes perfect for the California surfer girl.  With rash guards, bikinis, one-pieces, shoes, accessories, and even surfboards, there's no way you could go wrong!  Check out my favorite pieces below!

I've been living in Southern California for a little over 6 months and its still setting in for me that I'm living in such a beautiful place.  Sunset, ocean, and palm trees are a combination that never will get old.

Joie / Current/Elliott / Equipment Sample Sale in LA (February 2014)


I just came home from the Joie / Current/Elliott / Equipment Sample Sale in LA.  All items in the sale are an extra 50% off their already discounted price!  The sale goes from today until Saturday.  There were tons of tops as well as skirts, dresses, shorts jeans, blazers, and jean jackets.  There also were a few shoes, bags, and bikinis.  Almost everything was a size small and most bottoms were from size 0 to 4.  Since 90% of the time I am not a size small, I was a little disappointed.  Given that this was a sample sale I guess I shouldn't have been too surprised.  I did score some cute Joie shorts in my size for only $15 as well as a Mary Katrantzou for Current/Elliott jean jacket for $23.  Overall, if you're a size small, you can't miss this sale!  If not a size small, I would get over there quickly before all the other sizes are completely gone.

Goodbye 2013 and Hello 2014!

I've always said that 13 is my lucky number.  So I knew from the start that 2013 would be a great year. This year, I finally started this blog.  This has been something I have wanted to do for a long time.  


I interned at Sacramento Fashion Week.  That was a great experience and was very rewarding.


I am still with my wonderful boyfriend.


I graduated high school!  I am now attending my first-choice college in Southern California.


I finally made the move to LA, which has been a lifelong dream.


I attended Teen Vogue Fashion U in NYC.


I traveled to NYC for the first time and it was a great adventure.

All in all, 2013 has been great.  I wish all of you a safe and happy New Year and I hope 2014 is the best year yet for all of us!

Coming True


I spent the day at the beautiful Santa Monica Pier yesterday!  I just moved down to Southern California for college and I absolutely love it.  I've always loved my trips to So. Cal. and it's nice to know I don't have to leave.
