Monique Lhuillier Bridal Sample Sale 2016

Hi Babes, 

For those of you with brides in your life, the AMAZING Monique Lhuillier sample sale is tomorrow, June 26th from 10AM-4PM. 

I got to preview the sale today with my sister, and it is definitely worth going to--but you better wake up early...the staff was telling us people come as early as 3:00AM!

There are some HUGE bargains...60-90% off gowns. Each gown is color coded, I have attached the price list here!



We saw so many styles, multiple sizes, and a lot from Spring 2016 collection as well as the bliss line. Accessory selection is limited, and there's also 2 racks of ready to wear. 

I just thought I would share the pricing--wish I took more pics. If you have a specific dress in mind, DM me on Instagram and I'll tell you if I remember seeing it! 

The sale is at: 4533 Pacific Blvd, Vernon, CA 90058. Cash & credit only, final sale. Good luck shopping!!

stay gold, 


Spring Transitions

It's starting to really feel like Spring here in OC, so this weekend I put on a dress and sandals for the first time in a you can tell due to my really pale legs :/ I need a tan ASAP!

My favorite way to transition between seasons is to layer a jacket over my dresses.  Here I'm wearing one of my favorite army jackets from H&M.  It's getting a little worn out so I think I need to invest in a more long term piece.  Do you have any suggestions?

I'm wearing a ruched knit from Forever 21...comfort is always key on weekends for me.  My heels  were found on sale at Banana Republic.  They fit true to size and I wore them out dancing for hours and still felt comfortable, which can be hard in this style! I highly recommend them.

My bag is from Rebecca Minkoff, and I'm excited to carry it throughout spring and summer. The darling tassels give that cool seventies vibe without being over the top.  You'll be seeing it a lot! The smaller saddle bag is from H&M and belongs to my favorite blogger babe Mindy (@threadsnbreads) who took all these pictures and adventured with me <3

What are you wearing this spring?  I need to shop so share your picks with me please :)
