Head to toe in Mango!  Loved this rhinestone neckline playsuit with a keyhole slit; perfect for my upcoming holiday parties.

Shopper Elizabeth won a $100 Mango gift card for her chic look — a white sleeveless top, black leather mini skirt and killer pair of pumps.

And the $300 Mango gift card winner is Tiara, who stood out with her mustard and eggplant color combo look! We also loved how she accessorized with the brown boots and bag, which complement the overall color palette of her outfit.

Had such a fun time hosting the MANGO shopping/styling event last week in Santa Monica! Thanks so much to everyone who came out, styled themselves in Mango from head to toe and entered the competition at the end of the night. Everyone looked SO fabulous that we ended up choosing 5 finalists, and then narrowing our choices down to the top 3. Congrats to the winners!

Special thanks to my twin sister, Melanie, for taking the majority of these snapshots and to Neekoh, Ari, Hillary, TiaraMelissa, Liz, Steven and VaShon for being amazing friends and showing their support. ♥

Thanks, MANGO, for the memories!

When the weather is piss poor and downpouring, what better way to make it a bit bearable than to wear one of your favorite leopard print, leather sleeve jackets?

Despite the rainy Sunday, my weekend was one of the more recent memorable ones, especially since it kicked off so well with the Mango shopping party I hosted on Friday. Thanks so much to everyone who stopped by. Amazing times! Can’t wait to share the fun photos.

That moment you realize your empire waist dress looks like a maternity dress.

Say hello to my first maternity dress!  No, I’m not preggers.  But guaranteed, I’m storing this Cameo dress away when that time comes because it would make the cutest maternity dress.  Ever.

You can’t tell from these photos but this dress is an extremely dark navy blue, almost blueberry-like.  Keeping it simple and continuing the fruity berry theme, I went with some raspberry/cranberry hues to complement the dark navy.  Yea, yea, my shoes are black… and don’t match whatsoever.  I’m sure the extreme empire waist and my naked forehead (I’m very attached to my bangs.) distract you from my non-matching shoes though!

Hope the start of your week goes b(v)erry well.

Aside from sticking out like a neon sore thumb, I like that this Joyrich sweater affords me the opportunity to pair it with a neutral color bottom and shoes, such as this simple black sweater knit pencil skirt and my trusty harness boots. I’ve been slowly adapting to the ‘less is more’ rule and this sweater (unfortunately sold out online, but will keep an eye out if I see it anywhere else) plays to this ever-increasing mantra.

Who else is feeling the love from the extra hour of sleep we gained this weekend?!
