All that glitters is gold..

Sequin Saturday! I've had this dress in my closet since my birthday and have finally found an occasion to wear it! I love charity events, whether its music based or food based, a charity event is a wonderful excuse to have a good time and support a great cause! Today, my sister and I volunteered at her hospital's annual gala event to help raise money for their NICU department. It was a black tie event with the theme of "Essence of the Sea," colors were teal and coral. It was definitely a Saturday well spent. 

The guests were impeccably dressed, men in suits and ladies dressed to impressed and the best part about it is that we raised so much money! (Final count coming soon) I'm use to people bidding based on $10 dollar increments but here, it was amazing how generous people were. For example, 8 suite seats to the Kenny Chesney concert this summer sold for $20,000! Wow! We greeted people, checked them in, and made sure they were enjoying themselves. I have to say the auction part was my favorite. The MC's were fantastic! They had the crowd involved and laughing the entire time. Now, 6 hours later I'm finally home and comfortable.

My dress is from Dorothy Perkins website and lately, I've been infatuated with old Hollywood glam hair and make up so that's what I tried to recreate today. :) Added some black stockings to keep it appropriate and my Kardashian heels from Sears (alot of standing was involved so I finally switched into flats).

Sunshine in the NW

Hello my lovely dolls! How are we all doing? Sun has come to the NW! Granted it's only 60 degrees, but to us Washingtonians that means tank tops and shorts! Or in my case, summer dresses galore. 

"A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life"-- CoCo Chanel It took me a while to figure out what kind of changes I wanted to make in my life, but it always seems like my go to is a different hair style. I really wanted a bob cut, but when I sat down in the chair, I panicked! So I settled for a long bob and so far, I'm definitely loving it!

I found this adorable hi-low dress at ross for jus $15 dollars! At first I wasn't so sure about the colors just because its not my normal color scheme, but I was so happy with this purchase. It's still a little chilly out so it was the perfect dress to pair with some boots.

Ice Cream Bubblegum

Who got to enjoy Coachella this weekend? I'm loving all the pictures and the outfit posts from those who did. I'm definitely going to have to add that to my bucket list, either next year or the year after that... For now, I'll just stick with bright colors and imagine warm weather.

Perks of Being a Wallflower

I am such a firm believer in retail therapy. My bank account might not agree with me but at the same time, I like to stretch my money as far as it will go. So when I can find a signature piece or even a whole outfit for less than $50, my entire day is made. :)

Outfit Details|| Wall Paper Jeggings: Macy's $15 (similar) || Peplum Top : Target $10 (similar) || Black Flats: Target $5 || Jewelry : F21 (old) || Bag: Shoedazzle (gift) ||

We may not end up where we want to, but we end up exactly where we are suppose to.
