MyStyle: Pants

I snagged these wonderful Pilcro and the Letterpress pants at the big 50% off sale at Anthropologie the other day. They were originally 98$, marked down to 60$ then with the sale they were 30$! I also grabbed a yellow pair…and some other things 🙂

I am going to wear them today as travel overseas with my fiancé!

I have no idea where we are going. All I know is that it is going to be chilly and I will need a passport! My guesses are either Japan, Italy or Taiwan.

I won’t be blogging till after the New Year since I will be out of the country. I hope you have a fun Christmas/New Year’s!

May 2012 be the best year yet!!!



Treasures: Desk

I found this awesome secretary a few weeks ago while thrifting with my favourite thrift buddy, Julie. It had a huge 30$ price tag on it when we were there but Julie said that the week before it was priced lower.

I went to the person in charge of pricing and told her about this. I also might have said something like, “Can I get it for 18$? It looks really OLD”.

The manager looked at me like I was a 10yr old and said, “Ummm. It is an ANTIQUE!”.

I stayed confident in my 18$ offer and she said, ’28$’. The next minute sounded like this:









’20 and I’ll buy more stuff’


Lesson learned: Stand firm when bartering…then buy more stuff. 🙂

So I got about 20 vintage wooden hangers for 2$.


We love H&M for kids! The prices are amazing and the styles are just precious. Sizing runs a bit small as I suppose a European child is slightly smaller than the American version.

What is your favourite brand for children?

Wedding dresses!

Here it is.

My white vintage gown that I thrifted about a month ago! It had a huge 75$ price tag at Goodwill. It is currently at the mercy of the cutest little Korean lady. I am getting the sleeves chopped off.

While in Texas, a few weeks ago, I picked up an awesome red gown. I am debating on which one to wear…maybe I will wear both!

Here is a snippet of the red one

It is much redder in real life. This red one cost me a whopping 7.99$! That is right. You can purchase a wedding dress for the same price as a meal at Chipotle.

So, what should I do? Wear both? Forget about the white one and just do the crazy red? HELP!!

Today’s pick

I thrifted this shirt the other day for 2$. I found it in the kids section so it was cheaper than the usual 4$ PLUS it was 25% off at Goodwill that day.The skirt was thrifted a few months ago for 4$ and the belt is from Calvin Klein.

Hope you are enjoying this wonderful Friday!!

In-law style

Last weekend, I was able to travel to the great state of Texas to meet my future in-laws.

I had the most wonderful time!

The picture to the left is of my in-laws on their honeymoon in Taiwan. How stylish were they! I wish they would have saved those clothes for us. The bracelet on the right is such a sweet gift. In Taiwanese culture, it is customary for the mother-in-law to give the new daughter-in-law a gift. The gold bracelet that she gave me was given to her by her mother-in-law when she got married!!!

I know.

Precious. You can shed a tear. I love it. I wear it all the time now as it goes wonderfully with the little gold mirror that my grandma got from Paris when she was a youngster.

How much better is a vintage treasure when it is passed down from your own family!

Anthropologie Booties

I purchased these amazing booties today at Anthropologie here in Dallas, Texas. They are so stinking comfortable and were on some serious sale. Thank you Anthro for once again making my day!
