Feel the Love

valentine's day wish list

Dress: Guess | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman | Polish: Butter London

Earrings: Kate Spade | Lipstick: MAC | Fragrance: Versace

Hi Everyone!

I can’t believe it’s already February, although it doesn’t feel like it with the amazing weather we’re getting here in the Bay area. I’m used to 9 inches of snow on the ground at this point haha.

Valentine’s Day is 2 weeks away, and I wanted to share some of my favorite picks for making it a lovely day. Wether you’re celebrating with someone, or just want to treat yourself to a special gift, these gems will make you look and feel amazing. I personally love incorporating pink or red in my Valentine’s Day outfit. I also think lace adds instant va va voom. And of course no look is complete without a great fragrance, and one of my favorites is Bright Crystal by Versace.

I hope you have a great week and till next time,

Twirl and Studs

Jacket: Forever 21 (similar here)

Hi Everyone!

This weekend I took a stroll through the Ferry Building, as it’s become one of my favorite locations so far in SF. There was a similar market in Philly (Reading Terminal Market) with different vendors, mainly food, and it was always fun there. Going to the Ferry Building reminds me of that place, not only do I love the variety, but also the location…can’t beat the breath-taking view of the water, the Bay Bridge, and sailboats.

I recently got this red full midi skirt from Express because I have a similar one in black, which I love, and had to get this one too. Red is my favorite color, and I’ve worn this many times already. I adore the pockets, in fact any skirt with pockets is a must-have for me. Depending on how you style it, it works great for both day and night.
I also fell in love with these BCBGeneration Darron pumps from DSW (red + studs = happy feet)! I’m a huge DSW fan, and my go-to place for fabulous shoes.
Enjoy your week, and till next time,

Girls Love “Lips & Boys”

Tom Ford Lipstick in “Michael” shade

Hi Everyone!

I hope 2015 has started on a good note for you…it’s been a great start for me. Among many things, I want to announce my new beauty page on my blog “Have Panache”. This is where you’ll find all of my hair, makeup, and all beauty finds and must-haves!

And what better way to start off my Have Panache page then with Tom Ford’s new “Lips & Boys” lipstick collection. I was so excited when I heard about this limited edition collection, and had to get one! There are 50 shades, named after the men in Tom Ford’s life. I got the Michael shade, which is a fun, bright pink/rose color. Also, these lipstick are mini-sized, perfectly fitting in your clutch for a night out.

You can find these at stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Nordstrom, and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Till next time,

Happy New Year everyone!

I can’t believe it’s 2015, and I’m incredibly excited because I know it’s going to be the best year yet.

I got to celebrate NYE with family and friends here in beautiful California. And nothing says NYE more than sequins, right??? I wore these sparkly sequin shorts that flare on the bottom, giving the illusion of a skirt actually. So cute! I paired them with this leopard top from Express…I love mixing prints and textures. And for shoes, these black strappy heels were a great find from TJ Maxx.

Cheers to 2015, a fresh new year, a new life in California, new experiences and the unknown.

Till next time,

Tis The Season To Be Sparkly

Blazer: Forever 21 (found here with pockets)
Tank: Express (found here)
Pants: Express (found here in black)

Hi Everyone!

And Merry Christmas 🙂 I hope you enjoyed spending time with family and friends, ate some great food, and received lots of gifts. The weather here in the Bay area was amazing…sunshine was plentiful.

For Christmas, I usually opt for a dress or skirt and top, but this year I wanted a tuxedo look with pants. I love a classic black and white combo. And of course I love sparkly things, so I definitely wanted a sequin top, such as this one from Express. It comes in other shades too, and if you’re looking for a tank with some pizzazz, this is a great choice. And a black blazer is definitely a piece I think every girl should have in their closet. I love this tuxedo-inspired one from Forever 21 because the satin lapel gives a touch of elegance…makes it easy to dress up or dress down the blazer.

I hope you all enjoy the next few days with loved ones as we get closer to the end of the year!

Till next time,

Nail Polish: Essie in “she’s pampered” (red), and “peak of chic” (white)

Hi Everyone!

Merry Christmas to you all, and I hope you enjoy the holidays with family and friends.

I wanted to share my nail color for Christmas this year. Red is my favorite color, but I don’t usually wear red nail polish. However, this year I wanted to feel extra festive, and fell in love with this shade of Essie polish called “she’s pampered”. Also, this is my first Christmas in California since I’ve moved here, and since there’s no snow for Christmas, I decided to put it on my nails. I saw this “peak of chic” one, which look like little white snow flakes and I love that they sparkle. So I’ve made it snow on my ring fingers hahaha.

You can find these shades (links above) and all the great shades Essie has on their website, or at most local stores.

Have a beautiful holiday season!

Till next time,
