So I'm totally late on this but I've been reading about it all over the internet and I finally have the time to write about it. The collection looks amazing and the video is too funny. They will be opening in stores on November 23. Of course it is the day before I leave to go home for Thanksgiving. Hopefully I will have enough time to go to the store and get something!! What I liked most were the shoes though. Omg they were gorgeous!!
Let me show you.
By the way, I hear Gap and Valentino are doing a collaboration together but will only be sold in Europe and not the US stores. =[ Booooooo!
Yesterday was my 4 month anniversary for my boyfriend and I, which normally to me wouldn't be that big of a deal but at lunch I was presented with these gorgeous earrings from Na Hoku.
I love them but that's a given. Na Hoku is a jewelry store with locations nationwide, specializing in jewelry that has a Hawaiian flare. It originated in Hawaii and has continued to grow bigger and bigger. They have one at our local mall at Fashion Valley. I've actually never gone in but always just peeked in from the outside. They have various collections and while I was looking through the website yesterday, I noticed a trend in things like the custom Hawaiian flowers and slippers that you see on a lot of jewelry from such tourist areas. If you have a chance, you should really check it out!! But I should be writing a paper right now and am severely procrastinating so ttfn!
I know this was awhile ago but I've been lazy and have just now uploaded these pictures. I didn't take too many from the Threadshow and I should've but these are some shots from the fashion show that I was able to catch.
I was looking through Fashion Gone Rogue and I saw their post on the DSquared2 runway show at Milan Fashion Week and I loved it. It is just so clean and edgy at the same time. I don't even know how to describe it so I will just put up some pictures of my favorite looks.
I know this is kinda late but oh man Marchesa's collection at NYFW was just stunning! I always love their collections and wish I could own one of their dresses. Here are some of them that were just stunning!
Last night, my boyfriend took me to dinner at Wine Vault and Bistro for San Diego Restaurant Week. It gave me an excuse to dress up a little and eat some good food. The food was really good and so was the dessert. I got the chocolate mousse and Matt got the pear tarte tatin. The menu had lots of fancy words on it that I had no idea what they meant but overall it was yummy! I had calamari for an appetizer and Matt got a gezpacho, which apparently is a cold tomato soup...interesting. Then he got the chicken breast and I got the prawns which were both quite delicious. The ambiance was nice and the service was great. Additionally we got a wine pairing and they were pretty good. Afterwards we got some gelato at this place nearby and that was yummy too.
I was reading earlier on a different blog about websites where you can customize your own shoes/bags/men's shirts and I thought that this was a good thing. I've checked out these websites and they are kind of pricey for a college student on a budget but for those who are willing to splurge a little to have a design that is not quite like everybody else's it is a great idea.
The websites are: Shoes of Prey
So it's been a few weeks since I last posted and I really should've posted this sooner but I just got kinda caught up and didn't have motivation or time. But now I start school tmrw and I figure I should do this in my little free time before I am swamped with work. This day in San Fran, we went to the California Academy of the Sciences and ate lunch on the Wharf and then walked over to Ghiradelli Square and got some free chocolate samples. Afterwards we drove to Monterey, where my parents treated us to a lovely sushi dinner and we just crashed at my house because we were just absolutely spent. Well I look frumpy in my picture but that's what I wore that day!
