Fine Foods in the Sin City - Las Vegas

P o s t . b y    l    M i m i  

 Last weekend, I had the pleasure of accompanying my sister, her boyfriend, and a few friends to Vegas for 2 days and 1 night of food adventure!

The most notable : Gordon Ramsay Steak at Paris Hotel in Las Vegas . . .

Actually, Gordon Ramsay Steak was the reason we made this trip to Vegas. My sister is a food channel enthusiastic and fell in love with Mr. Ramsay. So we made it a mission to try it out. 

We made reservation 1 month ahead of time to fit in a party of 7. When we arrived 15 minutes before our reservation, we were given the option to wait in the lounge area where we can order drinks. Their HK Antioxidant is most refreshing! Tastes like blueberry lemonade! A must try! . . .

...With Mimi From Alice's

Happy Saturdays! : )

I'm headed to Las Vegas, NV this weekend but I wanted to take time to post my pieces from Alice's that Ritika mentioned in her last post! 

Now, I have to admit it was fun playing dress up in my favorite pieces from Alice's - a boutique in Hacienda Heights, CA. From the loose light flowing blouses to lace hugging dresses, Alice brings a little bit of Wonderland to my wardrobe this Summer and into Fall.

My first piece from Alice : White and blue striped blouse . . .

Ritika's Favorite Finds from Alice's

 P o s t . b y    l   R i t i k a

In my post "Korean Fashion is Dainty, Detailed and Divine," I mentioned a small boutique in Hacienda Heights named Alice's. Mimi and I wanted to do a collaborative blog post that showcases some of our favorite finds from her shop. As mentioned before, she travels to Korea every few months to bring back all of the latest Korean trends. A lot of her collection is detailed and feminine.

Here are my two outfits! The first is a dress I'm saving for breezy autumns and warmer winter socal days. It's pretty warm with full sleeves and double layers. Love the polka dots and fabric. The second is just the white top with a very detailed sleeve.

Check out Mimi's outfits to be posted tomorrow as well!

The Legends of Summer: JT & Hova

P o s t . b y    l   R i t i k a

The Legends of Summer: Justin Timberlake and Jay Z at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena late July was the best concert I've ever been to thus far! My first time at a stadium concert venue, the crowd totaled around 60 thousand. And everyone, I mean everyone, was insanely connected by their love for these two musical geniuses.

Skirt: Crossroads original/ Netted white tank: Cotton On/
Sandals: Target/ Crossbody bag: Urban Expressions via Hautelook
Fashion note: Black maxi skirts are so popular right now. I saw so many girls in line wearing maxi skirts and black seemed to be the color of the day! The half sheer version I wore was breezy enough for a perfect for a hot summer day in Pasadena. Maxi skirts are pretty versatile...I saw stylish girls pairing them with grungy band tee's, tanks, crop tops and even oversized light sweaters.

JT & Hova started off together with their latest Holy Grail track, then did individual short sets of their all-time hits and then came back together as one for Suit & Tie.

One Night of Luxury: The St. Regis Hotel & Resort

On a late July weekend, I was invited to stay at the St. Regis. I invited Mimi as my guest and we spent the next 24 hours in awe of the beauty around us!

It could not have been a more stunning weekend. The St. Regis is one of Orange County's finest, well-known gems. Naturally, we grabbed our cameras ASAP and set out to capture the beauty as best we could. Here it is, from night to daylight:
