I remember, once upon a time, where I thought combat boots were for witches (blame it on one of my favorite Halloween movies, Hocus Pocus). I always thought that they were masculine and people would mistaken me to be in the military. Now I’m all about military looks. Camo, combat boots, olive green, love it all.
When I went to Vegas about a month or two ago, there was this amazing SA who helped me out at Steve Madden wearing these amaze boots. He said that they could barely hold them on the shelves (he was wearing women’s boots) and online was sold out. BUT ALAS! I found them.
I cannot wait to wear them. I have these ombre brown combats from SM already and they are so comfortable. I might have to invest on more colors and I love my new beanie. Olive green with leopard? Um.. Yes!
I’ve been inconsistently posting on here. Which is disappointing on my part since blogging more is my New Years resolution for 2013. Lets try this again, shall we?

As my previous post states, I am loonggg overdue with an IG update. I went from updating every Sunday consistently to dropping off the face of the planet.
I think I will set an alarm (have I said this before?) on my iDevices.
If you follow me on instagram and/or on facebook, you’re pretty much caught up. I’ve been buying spikes, skulls, etc, from different websites to jazz up some of the things that I already have in my closet! You will see them in my pictures below Be prepared for a long post. I haven’t updated in about a month :X

I got a bunch of gold spikes so I spiked my True Religions. The bf also taught me (oh yes he did, haha) how to make these bracelets. I just went on the more creative tip and added spikes and on a gold link chain. LMK if you want one, I’ll be selling them!

All made up for my friends wedding.
I had spikes and I applied them to almost everything. LOL!
I’ve been finding myself buying tons of bracelets lately. More than clothes actually. Lol. I guess its because in the back of my mind, I’m trying to save money for my work conference coming up. Ok I’m lying, I have been shopping still, I’m just spending less and being less impulsive.

This past weekend was awesome! It was the bf & I’s 8th year anniversary and it was fun! We got to watch The Avengers, which was amazing. I cannot even remember the last time we even seen a movie. Haha. We also had dinner at Ruth Chris, checked out the newly opened TJ MAXX, shopped almost every major mall and shopping center in HI and more. I enjoyed this past weekend enough to dread to go back to work today. Bleh. That’s life.
Breaking out my graffiti speedy. It’s been a while. I’ve been using a lot of smaller bags lately. Wearing: MK watch, Louis Vuitton Speedy and bandeau, Sam Edelman flats, True Religion Julie denim (similar) and Nordstrom top (a cute similar version).

I loved the black version so much that I had to get the gold pair. Love these Steve Maddens.
Breaking her out again. It’s been a while.
New bracelets in. (Jewelmint rose thorn bracelet and various others)
Yellow has always been one of my favorite colors. Unfortunately, I barely run into that color at shops so I don’t end up with many. This was a rare occasion for me to find this top at Urban Outfitters. Love at first sight? Yes
I’ve been really busy with work lately. I’m happy to have a day off tomorrow and only have to go to a 2-3 hour meeting on Thursday with the rest of the day off It’s a good resting period for what’s to come on Friday-Monday -_______-
I have been accumulating images online for my birthday / christmas wish/check list! I’m excited for fall and winter season!
Have a great rest of the week, all!
One of my favorite things about Vegas is the shopping! Yes, Hawaii might have the stores but they are all very different. For instance, Neiman Marcus. Hawaii’s Neiman doesn’t have all the Chanel and LV boutiques within the department store like Vegas does. The selections, especially for Chanel, is very different from the boutique. I even love going to Saks!
My favorite places in Vegas:
- Max Brennar (my chocolates melted Next time I’m getting a drink!)
- Saks Fifth
- Wynn (I always feel at home at the Wynn)
- H&M (Fashion Show)
Urban Outfitters zebra top and striped tank
H&M kimono style cardigan & blazer
H&M Leopard shawl & thin black blazer
F21 knit white blazer & leopard tank
I thought I’d never go out of my denim brand comfort zone that consist of only True Religion, Frankie B and Rock & Republics. I love the look of these Joe’s and the material is fan-tas-tic! JKO and I took one more last look at Metropark and picked up a few more things. I got the chunky necklace and the Joe’s jeans.
The snake print is very subtle, which I like. I don’t think I’m brave enough to wear actual snake pants (like the Asian guy in the first Fast and Furious, lol).
WEARING: Metropark double ring, grey and black wrap bracelet (which you can use also as a necklace and head tie), earrings and chunky bracelet; Oliver Peoples “Donyale” sunglasses; F21 linen button down shirt; Steve Madden “Tippper” sandals; Gucci Thwirl watch and belt; Joes denim; Louis Vuitton Courtney multicolore clutch.
So I’ve been working on my 100,000th hits giveaway and I’ve been grouping together a lot of my favorite things. For example, the wrap-around bracelet/necklace/headband/whatevers has been one of the most fun accessories that I have and I bought an extra one to add to my giveaway. I even have a HK keycap and one of my favorite cocktail rings. These are all just beginning pieces.
STAY TUNED! I’M GOING TO START THE GIVEAWAY IN ABOUT A WEEK SO I CAN GRAB THE LAST FINAL TOUCHES!
This would be the third shorts related post that I’ve done in this past week. It’s been hot lately and I’ve been on vacation so I can break them out! It’s been a long time since I wore my LV x SS Speedy in the fushia color. She
used to bestill is my favorite bag and she never fails in compliments
I decided to spend my last days of my vacation to go shopping and get better (if you followed me on Twitter, then you know I got sick on my vacation). The shopping hasn’t been lucky. I guess more to save!

Is anyones bf/husband/fiance this mean too?
I have an obsession with bows, like many girls. Especially in the blogging world (don’t try to deny it!). I almost D I E D when I saw this top at Eden in Love‘s 1st birthday bash I’m actually wearing it backwards. I thought it looked much better with the zipper in the front.
WEARING: Metropark straw fedora and silver hoop earrings, Eden in Love bow tank and gold chain necklace, Michael Kors ceramic watch, F21 ivory cardigan, Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene “Eva” clutch and Monogram “Favourit” bow bracelet, Juicy Couture gold charm starter bracelet, Nordstrom gold ring w/ pink stone, True Religion “Joey” cut-off denim shorts and “Tippper” black sandals.

Tan top with a ruffle back & red tank with an open back.
Mint green tank & bow tank.
Leather bow bracelets. Aren’t they adorable?!
Tan blazer (that I’ve been looking high-and-low for) from the GAP. Oh and this is the very first thing I’ve ever bought from the GAP. Just sayin
