It is official, in two years I will turn the big 3-0! I am trying to convince myself to look at it from a “fine wine” perspective. Guess I will have to fake it til I make it. Am I the only one having a slight panic attack about this?

On a lighter note, I was happy to spend my twenty-eighth birthday in San Francisco. I love walking  around the city and taking pictures. I finally had the chance to visit  Miette pastry shop, and stopped by Bi-Rite Market for a few groceries. It was pouring rain which I loved but it would stop every time we needed it to. It was perfect! That city takes my breath away every time.

Where do you go when you want to take a quick little trip? Most importantly, what do you wear? I am the worst at over packing. What is in your getaway bag?

Happy New Years Eve! Have fun and stay safe.

Xo,

Took pictures with my mom for her birthday to post on my blog. She wasn’t too pleased with her “debut” on here so I thought I would make it up to her. Love you momma, you are beautiful.

It would be a fib, if I told you this look was planned. The truth is, this is the result of me throwing on a dress, grabbing a comfy sweater, and running out of the house. The perfect opportunity, for an impromptu photo-shoot. Don’t you think?

Don’t forget to apply lipstick; it is amazing how color on your lips can bring life to a rather washed out face.

This Forever 21 plus size body-con dress is from a few years back. I have worn it as a dress, a top with jeans, and as a pencil skirt. It has surprisingly turned out to be quite a versatile piece in my wardrobe.

Ta-Ta for now…

DOTS, VELVET, AND LEOPARD, OH MY!

This smoking jacket is one of many wonderful finds I’ve encountered through thrifting. “It’s prit-eey fah-in amazin!” (That’s my English accent, just incase you were wondering).

BUT, get this; the velvet top (also thrifted), is a size L tank-dress in regular sizing. As you can see, it’s a form fitting top on me. After a couple years of sitting in my closet, I decided to wear it with pants from Forever 21. The polka dots on the pants are a similar texture as the velvet top; it was only natural to pair the two.

Moral of the story, thrifting is the bomb; there is quite a bit of unique treasures out there, waiting to be discovered. Be sure to try on as mush as possible, you’ll be surprised what will fit. And, don’t forget to speak in an English accent; it makes the experience more amusing 😉

FAKESGIVING

serena fall5
This was my Fakesgiving look. My mom will be working in Hawaii for the real Thanksgiving. Naturally, we decided to celebrate the holiday early, hence the title “Fakesgiving”. I’m wearing a 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target dress, worn as a kimono/open trench dress? Honestly, I don’t know what to call it, not that it matters! Once I laid eyes on it, I had to have it; I knew I would make it work somehow. What do you think?

I can get outfits GALORE with this one piece! Dresses, to a basic white V-neck paired w/ ripped jeans and a pointed heel or anything in-between. Dressing up for the holidays is something I always look forward to. Have you thought about what you’re wearing for Thanksgiving? Dish!! I want to know!

Big thanks to my best-friend’s mom at Everlasting Foot Prints Photo for taking the time to have a mini photo-shoot after the dinner. I love these pictures. Thank you again, Sharon. Love you. XoXo

I cant forget to say “Happy Veterans Day”. Thank you, to those who have served and are currently serving our country. GOD BLESSES YOU ALL!

A little late for a 4th of July outfit but I want to get all of my summer looks posted, before fall is here. My hair is a little grown out but here it is! I have wanted to go blonde for a while now. Am I crazy? What do you think?

Do you ever get tired of wearing heels? Apparently, I was having one of those days, 4th of July was blistering, the last thing I wanted to do was walk in heels all day. When I’m not feeling heels, I often opt for a crispy-white pair of tennies, maybe chic flats or a dainty pair of sandals. They’re comfortable, effortless and go with just about anything, without sacrificing style.

How was your weekend? Did any of you get something from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collaboration? If so, do you love it?? I did and do, keep an eye out for my haul.

Xoxo

Wouldn’t it be interesting to be a sex therapist? I definitely inherited my mommas “nosey” gene, the more in depth, explicit details, the better! My mom would say, “its being curious”! Whatever, I call it nosey…

I love to hear about day to day life, careers and yes, even sex! You can say I’m known for turning mundane conversation into something…lets just say, “a little less mundane” 😉 Oh, and we can’t forget to dish about the threads, I want to know what you were wearing and where you wore it to.

So, what’s new ladies? Let’s dish, like we do on our morning talks with the girls. You know we all have at least one person we dish the latest to, now you can add Rococo Le Monde to that list. Come and let it all out, the good, the bad, and the beautiful (we’re too pretty to associate with ugly)! Let the love/life/fashion/dirty talks commence.

Here are a few looks from 2013 of my long gone, long hair. I’ll post photos of my short hair soon!
