Passport Covers

For the first time since 2006, I will be traveling out of the country and using my passport!  Although I don’t have a cover, just seeing these things makes me happy ❤

I believe that a passport cover (or lack thereof) says a lot about your personality and can be considered another form of expression in fashion and traveling alike =P

Do you have a passport cover?  Or better yet, do you HAVE a passport?


Urban Floral

I love this urban chic look that’s coming out in spring/summer 2010.  It’s so relaxed and unfussy, yet well put together.  I’m not sure it’s in me to be this “urban” or “hipster”, but I do appreciate the unique fashion sense and confidence it takes to pull this off.


Spring Floral

Spring is here!  (kind of)  Despite LA’s cold weather…it’s hot SOMEWHERE!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this outfit.  I love how fun this top is, yet understated at the same time.  Understated because of the dark navy color and white flower print…appropriate for the office, but super cute on a summer day when you’re out shopping with the girls.

My next favorite are the SHOES!  I love heels in the summer.  I’m not sure whether it’s because of the bare legs, but I love seeing girls where shorts/skirts/sundresses with high heels and wedges ❤


Gloomy May Wardrobe

What’s up with this weather??  It’s May 24th and I’m still wearing uggs and thick sweaters.  I understand that the East Coast can sometimes exhibit wack weather but LA??  CALIFORNIA??

When I should be laying out at the beach each weekend and wearing sun dresses~ I’m always bundled up with a huge scarf and thick cardigans.  *shudder*  This is my ode to the cold weekend and week ahead~

Jessica Matrasko Jewelry: 50% off Insider Discount today!

A year ago, my friend invited me to a jewelry party at her house and I went thinking it would be some sort of tacky Tupperware party for housewives.  Boy was I surprised!  I walked into a room of deliciously decorated jewelry on stands, gorgeous fabrics and display stands.  Jessica Matrasko’s jewelry has truly changed my life.  Each piece is handmade 24k or 14k gold-fill, and 24k gold plated plant and ocean life.  Even if you and your friends all order the same item, because each stone is so unique, you’ll never get the exact same piece.  I love knowing that my jewelry is one of a kind!

TODAY AND TOMORROW ONLY~~~ there’s a 50% off insider discount (use the code: “insider” at checkout).

Hot or Not: Christina Milian

I’m not sure about the neon on me…but I think Christina is rocking the color.

Milian went to a Nylon party wearing neon yellow high heels with fringe and a vintage neon shirt tucked into her tight dress and Gucci belt.




Did any of you guys read the Madeline books when you were little?  If you haven’t, it’s about a little French Girl who’s mischevious and always getting into trouble.  Well this outfit below reminded me of the children’s fiction character =)

Shoes are definitely my weakness.  If you walked into my room and saw all my stuff, it would actually come as a surprise~ especially since I have three closets worth of clothes… But Shoes are without a doubt my favorite thing to shop for, lust after, and purchase!  After starting my job at UCLA, I began to wear flats more in an attempt to be “more professional”.  However…the gladiators and trendy flats probably took me BACK a few steps.  oh well~

But the higher the better for me.  I’ve been a bit out of practice with heels since I stopped wearing them to work everyday, but stilettos and sky-high wedges are the ideal shoes to wear for all occasions.  With clothes, I don’t mind shopping at forever 21 or target.  But with shoes…only Nordstrom and Piperlime for me!

Jessica Simpson: what’s going on?

I’m sorry Jessica…but you are NOT looking good these days.  In fact, you’re actually looking pretty fugs.  I”m sorry to say it!  I used to LOVE YOU when you first came out back in the late 90s/early 2000s.  I loved you more than Britney and Christina.  But now…you have hit a similar train wreck as Britney.  Harsh…but I said it!  Although you don’t have mental instability, but you seem to have lost your way after the divorce with Nick.  Your dating weird men, gaining tons of weight, not really thinking about fashion…but the worst part is that you don’t look as confident.

Whatever you’re going through…I hope you snap out of it soon.

xoxo, Esther
