I can’t believe summer is rolling to an end. It’s true. It’s only August but I see leaves turning orange already.
I, however, don’t mind the golden trees. This transitional season period motivates to write. I’ve been MIA with my writing but with me turning a year older and with life happening, I’m slowly getting back into writing. I’m pushing myself to get out of the unmotivated state I’ve been in.
But I guess I needed to feel that. I needed to know where I like to be and where I don’t.
With that said, I’m excited for this new age! And I’m also happy to celebrate it in partnership with Popsugar Must Have.
Popsugar Must Have turns 5 this August (I, on the other hand, turned 26 last month). If you don’t know what Popsugar Must Have is, it is a monthly lifestyle subscription box that brings you a mixture of beauty, fashion, and lifestyle products. There are 5-6 items that are typically full-size or deluxe sample sizes. I’ve been a partner of Popsugar for a long time. (You can watch my unboxing’s on my YouTube channel). READ MORE
I’m sure many of you may know by now but TODAY the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 is open for Public Access! That means if you are not a Nordstrom cardholder (like myself), you can finally take advantage of the infamous sale. This is the first year I will be participating in this sale. I am looking for any great summer to fall transitional pieces, anything I may need for my wardrobe, any unique or great fall pieces.
I thought it’s only appropriate to share a few of my current favorite picks. Click the photo for details!!
Fashion has so many components to it. All of those components can make up different fashion blogs. Starting a fashion blog doesn’t just mean personal style. It can be petite fashion, sustainable fashion, plus-size fashion. You can write on trending styles, editorial photography, or profiles of people working in fashion. There are so many ways you can take your fashion blog which is a great thing, but it can also get messy especially if you want to include a little bit of everything.

If you follow me on instagram or have seen my previous post, you will know that I am a huge fan of loafer mules aka slip-on loafers. At first I wasn’t sure if I should buy it, after I bought it I wasn’t sure if I would actually wear it, and then I wore it and it’s literally the only shoe I’ve been wearing.
If the loafer mules or slip-on loafers (also like these & these) are not your thing, that’s totally fine. But if you’ve been eyeing them for a while and can’t seem to decide if you should buy loafer mules, well, here are my 3 reasons why you should =)
Are you looking to make extra money on the side? Or do you just want to get rid of some old clothes? Whether you need the extra money or just need to clear out your closet, here are a few places you can turn to to help you sell your clothes.
I’ve used all of these methods at some point of my life, and I can say that they work. While these ideas may not make you a millionaire, they are great platforms where you can make extra money selling your clothes:
1) Plato’s Closet/Local thrift stores that buy: I put this one first because I think this is the quickest way to see results. You bring your unwanted clothes to them, they sort it out and give you a price for the clothes they want to buy from you. Now granted, sometimes these stores may take a lot or nothing at all from you so the cash you make may vary. Regardless, this option will still give you something.
2) Thred Up: Thred Up is an online platform that buys your gently used clothes or put it on cocosignment (meaning they’ll give you the money after your items has been sold). Their website has a calculator page that helps give you an idea on how much you could make and what brands you can send to them. Also, thred up conveniently sends you their dotted bag to your front door, making shipping easy for you. READ MORE
If you don’t already know, I am quite petite. I stand shy of 5 ft. I don’t always hunt for clothes labeled “petite” but if I find a brand that does offer clothes in petite sizes, I am forever a committed customer. Though I shop any where and almost everywhere, I do find that most petite clothing embodies my frame better. The sleeve holes are not as long, the dresses hit right at the waist, jeans hit the ankles correctly, and so on.
People often ask me where I shop for petite clothes. The truth is, I shop at regular stores just like them too. But there is an online store that kind of took my breath away and I’ve been shopping there since: ASOS
Yeap. Asos–where I buy most of petite clothes online. I bought a lot of my dresses (everyday dresses to bridesmaid dresses) and shoes from there.
This is one of my favorite dresses from Asos. I love the way it fits and the style. See full post here.
