Hi LOVEs! HAPPY SUNDAY!
I hope you guys are still enjoying this crazy Black Holiday shopping week! Did you score anything that you'd been eyeing for?  My shopping is non-stopping, I just can't help because the deals are insane!! (insert heart eye shaped emoji here! )
I know #SmallBusinessSaturday is yesterday, but I think it's not too late yet, to support my love, Emmy who owns a small jewelry line called Emmy Trinh Jewelry. I am the kind of girl who can't leave her door without accessories. In my wardrobe, they play a very important roll sometimes.. I used to be sucker for chunky pieces, well.. I think I still am, but I am more into dainty ones for the past few years because they are so effortless yet bold enough to rock every day. And Emmy thinks the same way - "Jewelry is essential to my wardrobe. It's the easiest way to update my look...and it always fits"
She uses precious and semi-precious stones with gold-filled and sterling silver, which I adore so much, to create chic, modern and refined pieces that exude a hint of sexy femininity. Her jewelry line is also inspired by architecture and nature, and is a reflection of geometric design and the visual elements of the west coast.
Each pieces are carefully handcrafted, and I just love wearing hers in my daily looks. Did you guys know that gemstone has its own meaning? I didn't, but knowing what it actually means gives me more affection to it every time I wear it. With that being said, I am so pleased to sport this gorgeous Blue Hour Necklace with 
Lapis Lazuli gemstone, which means to help improve memory, attracts success, and is a stone of communication. Sounds very charming to me. Glad she picked this one for me because I'd love to be successful!
She is offering a weekend sale right now! So today's the last chance to get your hands on such a lovely gemstone jewelry with budget-friendly, and it's definitely a perfect holiday gift for all women. Your girl would be so delighted..! Simply enter the promo code 'SHOPSMALL' at your checkout to get 15% off.
Happy Shopping!♥

Hi LOVEs! Happy Friday! Any fun plan for the weekend?

If you are petite like me, you know the real struggle of finding a pair of perfect jeans? Well.. That hits me all the time! Although skinny jeans are pretty easy to get your hands on, when it comes to other type of jeans, it's really pain in the butt. So it was extremely a happy moment when I found these

H&M

flare wide leg jeans

online, and the fit is amazingly flawless when it was arrived!! It's high-waist, and I appreciate it making my legs look longer. Plus, I don't need to tailor the hems or wear sky-high heels thanks to the just right amount of the length!! I was finally able to ride on the wave of this 70's inspired jean trend! haha

I paired them with my favorite oversized blush knit for an easy-going style - like a brunch-with-my-girls-look. In fact, I caught up with one of my new friends,

Emmy

who is a Vancouver based jewelry designer. I super adore her pieces, and this look was so perfect to feature her dainty handmade beautiful accessories. 

I am wearing:

Liv Diamond Spike Necklace

Linnea Necklace

Stax Labradorite Bracelet

Stax Linnea Bracelet

Linnea Thread Earrings

I highly recommend you to check out her website for more fab pieces! My favorites are definitely stone contained necklaces!

I am still hunting for another pair of flare jeans, more like the ones with tight on the thigh and flare at the bottom. So if you know of any stores you could recommend, please comment below! :)

On the side (personal) note, I am freaking excited to attend

Hello Kitty Supercute Operning Party

with my blogger friend, Bailey of

Hot Dress Hot Mess

 . Special thanks to

UNIQLO

for the tickets at the last second (They were sold out so quickly, we couldn't get our tickets until 2 days ago! ) Follow along the fun time with Hello Kitty on my snap: @

Have a great weekend ahead, dolls!

Purple Florals

It's spring, time to get intrigued with floral prints.

Hi LOVEs!!! Happy Friday!!!
One of the favorite things in spring is definitely to enjoy a day with a pretty view of blooming flowers wherever I go. At a park, neighbors, and random streets. Literally everywhere. Yesterday while I was running a little errands, I came across adorable cuties on the way. So I had to stop and took a snap of it! This little happiness always gives me a positive vibe and puts a big smile on my face naturally.

Wearing floral prints is another way to amuse myself with the season. And these 70's inspired floral printed pants are absolutely on point! The color is so uplifting, the fabrics are so stretch that I feel like I am wearing a pj, and I love the big flower prints! The lengths are flattering for petites even though you have to wear a pair of platforms, which I don't mind that at all. Yay to longer legs! I paired them with a simple black cropped top to make the pants pop and also to show a bit of skin for a great amount of sexiness. I wore this on Easter so I added pastel blue mini bag to celebrate the holiday.

As the weather gets warmer, I opt to play with my hair like top buns, ponytails, or side braids...The options are endless and it's actually somewhat significant to style your hair because one look can be changeable depending on your hairstyles! Whenever my whole face is showed, adding a pair of statement earrings is a must.  Recently JJ Caprices gifted these gorgeous jeweled earrings when I had a meeting with her and I instantly fell in love with them. Too lovely to take them off! Loving the color-blocking action going with crystals and silver accents!! Her boutique offers one-of-a-kind pieces, and that makes me feel even special to wear these earrings! I highly recommend to visit her store if you love amazing, unique and handmade jewelry around the world.
Don't forget to enjoy a special code, "AIKASLOVECLOSET" for 15% off of your order!
Also, she is having a special trunk show on April 25th at Hotel Max featuring global finds and new arrivals from over 10+ countries including Turkey, Italy, Israel, Peru, Costa Rica, France, India and more. So if you are in the city, come check out her newly added pieces and grab a special gift for your mom! :)    

What: JJ Caprices Global Style Trunk Show
When: Saturday, April 25th 2015
Where: Hotel Max 620 Stewart St. Seattle, WA 98101 (The event will be in the Sidebar conference room)
Time: 4-6pm

It was really pleasure to stop by my new favorite local jewelry boutique/studio called Fresh Tangerine (what a juicy name!) last week, and I had a lot of fun meeting the sweet team, taking a look at their gorgeous jewelry and getting so inspired at the showroom, even though it was a short visit.

First thing I have to say is.... I absolutely LOVED their space! Their interior and decor is just too adorable and made me wish that it was my place! I love how they display all their delicate and fabulous pieces everywhere using furniture, woods and glasses, ornaments, etc..  The space is full of inspiration with a lot of feminine and vintage vibes, and you can also peek their production area as well as a little maker station, which is also fun thing you can get a behind the scene look! I snapped some shots of their space for you! You can also have yourself tour on here!

You can also mix it up and stack them with other rings you already own. I myself who really appreciates details and focuses on head-to-toe style, I instantly became obsessed with their jewelry. I added some of them into my collection; Geode Ring,  Glitter Stacking Ring & Twisted Stacking Ring (on my middle finger)
Aren't they adorable? Love them with my fresh DIY nails!

Charming Charlie Grand Opening Event!!!





-------------------------------------------------


Today's post is all about a new store named Charming Charlie which opened in Redmond, WA!!!
 I had never heard of this brand until I received an invitation for the Grand Opening event, which is really too bad for me! Now that I have been there, I really adore Charming Charlie now!!!
The new store had its launch last weekend (Oct 15th) at the Redmond Town Center. The exterior is quite lovely with its bright pink door and wide glazed windows -- as you can see in the first picture. 

Before I start talking about my shopping experience at this shop, allow me to introduce Charming Charlie a bit...

"Charming Charlie made its debut in 2004 with one very colorful and clear mission: help very woman, everywhere, find her fabulous. We're crazy for color. We live for sparkle. We thrive on making a statement. Why? Because we know accessories have the power to transform both your outfit and your outlook.  Jewelry, handbags, eyewear, scarves, shoes, and more all grouped together in your favorite colors -- thousands of accessories in one store! Plus friendly Charmeres ready to help you unleash your one-of-a-kind style -- we call it finidhing your fabulous. From the tip of your tiara to the point of your pumps, Charming Charlie wants to bring our your most fabulous, fierece and fun self every single day. " (Cited from www.charmingcharlie.com)

You know how much I love to accessorize, and I really love how all of the accessories and jewelry are displayed throughout their store! I've never seen a store that organized by color the way they do. The layout allows you to mix several pieces together in similar shades. For example, you could layer a few ( or MORE) necklaces in the same colors but in totally different textures and shapes... How fun is that? To a person who loves layering like I do, this store is definitely now on the regular visit list. The sales reps are also very friendly and inviting, and they are all well-dressed with Charming Charlie pieces!!!! I kept asking them the same question: "I love the necklace you are wearing! Where can I get it?" They are like walking mannequins! lol

  I am very fascinated with the store displays as well. The stunning shiny chandeliers, white boxy in-walls with tons of lovely items, European-inspired huge mirrors... I was very satisfied and overjoyed just as I strolled around the store! As you shop, you will surely be inspired thanks to the thousands of accessories! It was so extreme that I had so much trouble deciding what I SHOULD buy! Their well thought out displays give you plenty of awesome tips on how you can mix and put accessories and jewelry together!!!!
Have you ever felt that you were looking for something but could't find that perfect right thing you really wanted?
Well, you can say goodbye to that feeling now! Charming Charlie can solve it right away. Now you can go to their store because CC is where you can find exactly what you are looking for...


Here are the items I bought, and I love every piece so much!
They are offering a Buy One, Get One Free deal, so I took advantage of it to buy the gold necklace and earrings and saved some money! :) 


Did  you like what I got from Charming Charlie???
You can buy some of the items online as well!


(Available in 5 colors: Black, Dark Blue, Orange, Red, & Wine)
(Available in 3 colors: Black, Light Brown & Light White)

A special thanks to Kimberly for the invitation to have me tour the store!
I wanted to share this little gem of a store in case you hadn't heard of Charming Charlie  and I hope you can be inspired by my shopping experience there! Make sure to check them out online or/and in store if you live near by them! (Here is the direct link to STORE LOCATOR!!)

Have a great one!
