"'Cause you can, so you do."

Have you tried the Starbucks Toffee Frappuccinos? I love them! Clearly, because I am endorsing them in a following picture and am not paid for it!






Forever 21 dress. Banana Republic cami. BCBG wedges. Handmade necklace.
Juicy Couture bracelet. Swarovski earrings. Nordstrom ring.


Remember those black Calvin Klein heels I used to wear almost always? (They were my go-to heels after all!) Well unfortunately for me, I can't find them. I am 99% sure my closet ate them. But in conclusion, it is why I've been wearing these BCBG wedges so often. They often just happen to be the last worn pair of shoes and not yet placed back correctly in the closet; so when I'm in a hurry, they are the most accessible.

I really need to look for my Calvin Klein heels though (or dig other black heels out) because the Mary Jane style of the BCBG wedges make them a little less versatile. I absolutely love the wedges; but with this dress, it makes me look a tad matronly--which isn't the look I'm going for!

Speaking of things I don't go for, I love shopping online because you can find amazing steals and deals; however, the downside is you're not always 100% guaranteed what you get will be perfect. Obviously when it comes to clothes, if you're in a store, you can try something on. If you get it online, even if you know what size you are in a certain brand, you can find that you don't like the fit of something.

When it comes to accessories, you could potentially go wrong when pictures are extra zoomed in or not shown to scale. When I bought the Juicy bracelet I'm wearing in this post on a flash sale site, I thought it was going to be a lot thicker. Thankfully, it's still really cute, and I love it! You can buy the pink or white version of it here for just $23! And my picture wearing it is accurate!! :o)

But if you're interested in jewelry for free...

Hi Sam! Ah, I love Starbucks cappuccinos..my favorite ones are the caramel ones! I've been to Thailand and Japan when I was very, very little but now I barely have time to go anywhere and I have to take comfort in the fact that I live in Hawaii! Great giveaway! It's such a cute necklace! xoxoxoo

i love starbucks but they increased their coffee prices alongside the change with their logo. their coffee is still the best however i can only have starbucks once or twice a month since the one near our office closed and the mall is out of the way.

bo's coffee is my new source of caffeine fix now.
