OOTD - Beach girl

Last week, I had a fun day at the Huntington Beach in the morning while it was overcast and spent dinner at Slapfish with the family . We dropped by my favorite boutique Luna B and I got this cool new hat. I think it's perfect for summer. What do you think? 

Styling tip: If a top is too big, turn it one shoulder.

OOTD - Shopping

Last Saturday, I decided to hit the BB Dakota sample sale in Costa Mesa. I love this sale and got so many dresses, skirts, and shorts. Shh, don't tell hubby! I'll do a post on my new goodies! Since it was hot, I wore this outfit perfect for shopping and running around.

OOTD - Prints

Happy Thursday! I love mixing prints and textures. I decided to wear my comfy tee with faux leather sleeves and pair it with some leopard sneakers a few weeks ago. What do you think?

Havana Mania

With the loss of Versailles in Manhattan Beach, I remembered my old co workers taking me to Havana Mania in Redondo Beach for my birthday lunch.

This yummy restaurant serves Cuban cuisine and cocktails. Whenever I am here we get the rabo encendido (oxtail goodness) , plantanos (fried bananas ) and sangria. 
The service is always great in this lovely restaurant . I always see a mix of locals, families , couples on a date and even yuppies enjoying dinner here.

OOTD - Double date night

Happy Friday people!

What do you wear on a double date ? Something flirty of course. Hubby and I met up with our engaged friends for a fun dinner and donut date. I must say we must do it again. We went to  Social in Costa Mesa. Read the restaurant review here.

PS. Aren't you loving the hydrangeas in my mom's garden? Wow!

OOTD - Work

Happy Wednesday guys! 
I had a Serene Sky pop up shop a few weeks ago at XCVI Fashion Island. We had a blast on their Super Saturday. 
I decided to wear something vintage style for my work day. I included pictures with my designer Annie from OhSoCaliClothing and my nephew who came to visit. I can't wait to return for another pop up shop .

OOTD - Bohobabe

A few weeks ago, I met up with my girlfriend Beverly for a yummy Thai lunch and Frosted cupcakes. It was way chilly so wore my new favorite top.

OOTD - Serene Sky

As you know, I have my shop - - and this top reminded me of a Serene Sky. What do you think? I even got one for my girlfriend Kimberly for her birthday. I wanted the top to do all the talking so kept it simple with blue jeans and nude mules.

OOTD - Lace

Happy Thursday! I've been into delicate tops lately. I love the lace detail on the sleeves and on the back.

SOCIAL Costa Mesa

I went on a double date with our good friends last weekend at SOCIAL in Costa Mesa. We had such a good time catching up and eating good New American food. The decor of SOCIAL is really cute with rustic wood, dim lighting, and full bar. The service was really good and attentive too.

I love  cheese boards. We ordered one with soft cheese and a meat sampler. My favorite was the spicy salami. I wish they put more bread though.

Dinner isn't complete without drinks. The guys got red wine and beer while I tried one of their handcrafted cocktails ($12.50).  My light of lillet was a fusion of ginger and wine and topped with edible flowers. It was very pretty and a little strong, but good. Yelp reviewers said the chicken and waffles was good and they weren't lying. The chef special was soft shell crab and pork belly with an aoili dressing. This dish was my favorite.

The brussels sprouts was heavenly. Topped with pine nuts and sweet potatoes. You must get this.

Overall, I definitely… Boho Vibes Lookbook

I love California style and am so proud of's latest lookbook entitled Boho Vibes. I styled these looks with assistance from ABG Styling for that perfect carefree vibe. My team and I had the best time shooting on location in Orange County with three amazing and energetic models. I had to share a few of my favorite photos from photographer Annalisa Stalcup.

Be sure to shop the lookbook and check out our very first video lookbook!

OOTD - Meow

Meow! Lately I have become a cat fan ever since my brother got a munchin cat and my mom has been caring for new kittens. Any cat lovers out there?

We went to South Coast Plaza a couple weekends ago and I wore this cute oufit mixing prints. And, what do you think of my throne? Haha!

OOTD - black & white

One of my favorite color combos is black & white but I think you already knew that. I love mixing textures and wore my faux leather crop top this time for a dessert date with my girlfriend Kimberly the other weekend.

OOTD - happy day

What do you wear when it's someone special's birthday? You dress in something chic. This outfit has to be one of my favorites, especially since it makes me look really tall.

The other weekend, I wore a new outfit that I definitely have to duplicate .

OOTD - Newport Beach

Hello June! Wow, May sure flew by. Any plans for the summer? I've been planning lunch and dessert dates with friends and hopefully a lil' vacay too. 
I wore this outfit for a fun family day in Newport Beach. I love gray so thought I would wear lots of it. We went to the library and Sprinkles ice cream for dessert.
