Friday Favorites: Yumi Kim

Yumi Kim seriously makes some of the prettiest dresses and tops around. So freaking adorable!

The Yumi Kim website has just been updated with new spring clothes and I am even more in love that I was before. Apart from being pretty reasonably priced, they often have discount codes!

all images are from yumi kim's official website

all these gorgeous spring clothes make me wish that the weather was a little nicer here in the ATL - it has been exceptionally cold! It's 30 today! Brrr! Ready to wear short dresses and minis! come on sun!

Hope everyone has a FABULOUS and AMAZING and SAFE weekend :)

Happy Tuesday! :) This is my last week working at my dad's company. I take the GMAT March 9 and need to study so much. I have been taking prep classes and they have definitely been helping but my score is still not close to what I want it to be. Even though the school I am applying to for my MBA does not require a super high score, I still want to do my best and see how high I can get.

I can't believe I am actually moving to Mexico City - it's insane!

Well this weekend was actually really fun! On friday, I went to workout with my trainer after work and then I had some dinner at home and drank some wine while watching my DVR'd shows which are basically all Food Network cooking shows or What Not to Wear lol! Saturday I woke up early and hit the gym again for some cardio. After, I went to eat with my sister and cousins, Karen and Karla, at Luciano's and had a delicious meal as always. Then I took my cousins to Mall of GA to get Yogen Fruz - which is basically the same as pinkberry - so good! That night I went out to dinner with my friends Stacy and Teresa to Parkers on Ponce - had never been there before but it was awesome!

After dinner, we went out to the highlands and had so much fun! And we ran into some friends from high school too so it was like a mini-reunion! Very fun. The hangover the next morning was not though :(

me and stacy!

stacy, me and teresa

don't remember taking this picture or who the guy is that I am hugging.. LOL

and finally our dog coco was able to come home from the vet after being quarantined there because she bit the fed ex man :(
Simba was so happy to see her and we are all so happy to have her back home and that animal control didn't take her away from us!

Simba and Coco reunited!

and to treat myself... I ordered this.. that's 1 down.. many to go from my spring wish list, haha

New love for VS and American Eagle

You have to admit that bra shopping is a pain... or at least it always is for me. I have always been a Victoria's Secret girl. I have tried Gap Body and Calvin Klein in the past but I always go back to VS. However, for the past year I haven't found a good bra there.. the one I use the most is the Angels Demi cup but even though they are $50 - they end up falling apart so fast because I wear them so much! The requirements for me are (and I am referring to daily bras - not lingerie):

1) NO padding (way to pornographic on me)
2) PRETTY and SEXY (no ugly cottons for me)
3) FIT WELL (I hate back fat and when the cup doesn't fit)

So yesterday... after I stepped on my favorite black Angels bra and the wire poked out, I ventured off into the land of pink and white stripes. The thing that annoys me most about VS is the sales people! If I say I am fine please do not ask me again 6 times. Anyways... I patiently looked through each style and praise to god.. I found the perfect bra!! And... it's only $30! And it fits better than the Angels Demi! Success!

I only got the black but I definitely want to buy the nude and maybe a fun color as well.
you can purchase it here

I also ended up getting this cute bandeau bra top in electric blue - just something fun and it's a minimizer! Perfect for days when I want to hide the goods.. LOL.

I def. recommend it! very comfortable, but it still provides support. you can get it here

I also popped over into American Eagle (a store I usually never shop at).
My friend Jen over from The Look 4 Less posted this lovely chiffon tank and I knew I had to have it!
At $30, it is definitely a steal. I got it in the blue color but they have different color options - all adorable!
Runs TTS.
Buy the cute tank here

Have a good Thursday everyone!
Tomorrow, I will start posting my "Friday Faves" :)

Southern Snow Storms, Charlotte, and Recent Purchases

I hope everyone had an amazing Valentines day :)

Friday, the southern states were hit with a massive snow storm.. that me and my mom decided to stupidly drive through it. We ended up staying in Greenville, SC because we couldn't make it all the way to Charlotte.
When it snows, the south shuts down! No one knows what to do or how to drive and basically people think they cannot go on with daily life. Living in Boston for four years definitely helped me to learn that a little snow never hurt anyone... but it doesn't mean that it's okay to drive 300 miles... lol

simba investigating the snow

my house covered in snow!... and simba

thought this tree looked gorgeous

poor simba misses his sister coco who is quarantined at the vet right now because she bit the fed ex man! :(

bye house!... headed to charlotte... or so we thought!

our neighborhood - winter wonderland!

me and a snowman in greenville, sc

we finally got to charlotte and I got sushi with my dad! and they had lychee martinis - my favorite drink!

my wonderful parents on their way to the gala

although I didn't have a valentine, I ordered a dirty martini - extra dirty w/blue cheese stuffed olives... and then I didn't seem to care after! LOL

Has anyone else been having a hard time finding cute things in stores?

We went to dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse on Valentines and I hadn't brought anything nice to wear! I ran through Southpark Mall in Charlotte, one of the nicest malls I have ever been to.. and could not find anything! Finally I remembered the Nordstrom Juniors Department and found this dress:

only $44 and you can purchase here

I ended up putting together a cute outfit - although I would have liked it more with pumps instead of boots to make it more elegant.

with juicy couture blazer, black tights, zara boots, furla watch, and nadri bracelets

I also won this dress on eBay for $15 shipped... gotta love vintage!

I finally found this gorgeous Rebecca Taylor dress (on eBay!!) that has been in my shopbop cart since it came out. You can still get some sizes on shopbop or most sizes at revolve (where it isn't on sale but they might price match shopbop)

so excited to wear this! maybe my going away party before I leave for Mexico City

I really need to calm down with the spending!

Here are some of my favorite looks from this past week

Kristen Bell in Rebecca Taylor at the Rebecca Taylor fashion show for NYFW

Camilla Belle in Marchesa.. GORGEOUS!
The dress is absolutely to die for!
