EXCITED FOR THE WEEKEND!

I've had a very smooth and quick yet busy week and am very excited to roll into a stress-free weekend. I don't have much planned but am happy to just be able to catch up on rest and me time while I wait anxiously by the door, with my tail wagging for the post man to deliver my pink Chanel!
<3
What I felt like when I got a call from Chanel early this week telling me they tracked down the very last powder pink, lambskin, jumbo flap in the world. 
I haven't used my Gosh, Darling lipstick yet, but plan on using it this weekend. xoxo Karine!
I have some special orders to make this weekend, I love making my jewelry!
Now that I have a full-time job I don't get to spend nearly as much time with Shao Shu :(  I wish I could take her to work! My little ball of love!
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
xoxo

I LOVE MY SUBSCRIBER FRIENDS!

I really never thought I would make such amazing friends, from all over the world when I started blogging and vlogging, but I have and feel so fortunate! I received two parcels in the mail today and had to show you because I absolutely love everything! Thank you girls, for the sweet notes too!

IN THE NUDE

Because Black is so yesterday...
Nothing is more chic than dressing from head to toe in nude tones. Black may have been the go-to, stay-safe color in past seasons, but when in doubt this spring throw on some nudes. 
They seem to be working well with all colors, mixed together, and even neon trends go well with nudes. I have definitely been attracted to  lighter, weightless materials in nude hues for spring. 
I am currently looking for a great pair of nude pumps, cardigan and/or blazer.

AMAZING ONLINE BUYS

Trust me, you want these three amazing online buys! 
I recently came across some fabulous online deals and wanted to pass on the ones I was most impressed with before they sold out! 
The price points are crazy inexpensive and the quality is excellent!
Good Luck!
 


This gorgeous yellow trench is so well made, fully lined, and has great weight to it. It reminds my of a super pricey one by Kate Spade. 
I was so impressed by L'occitane's new garden beauty line. The Peony lipstick in #1 is the perfect bright pink tint for your lips, without overdoing it.

I was excited for the Bloomingdales sale event...Until I found out that every decent designer was excluded from the sale...ugh...No my new Python Reva's were not discounted :( But I love them anyway!
(Ignore the fact that my feet look abnormally large here )

DARE TO WEAR {SOCKS WITH HEELS}

Happy Tuesday!
So, many of you know I like to push the envelope, so to speak, when it comes to fashion...During the winter I wore socks and tights or a combination of the two with both flats and heels, often. 
I believe I did an OOTD on my youtube channel wearing socks with my Tory Burch flats. 
I really like the idea of spicing up a typical outfit with an unexpected pair of socks. I wouldn't do bright patterned ones, rather I'd choose navy, grey or nudes, so cute!
Wish I had photos of my past outfits with heels and socks...but alas, I don't :(

WHAT I'M LOVING AT THE MINUTE

Happy Friday Loves!
Just thought I would leave you 'till Monday with some randoms I'm absolutely loving at the minute...
Have a fabulous weekend!

These nude pumps make a great pair of skin tight skinnies look even sexier:
Currently saving for the Chanel jumbo flap handbag in powder pink:
I tried it on a couple weeks ago and decided it's a must and cannot wait to add it to my collection!
The Bund (Wai Tai) construction in Shanghai  is completed! 
Although I'm positive the Chinese touched up these photos to make the river look dream-like but nonetheless, Im sure its a sight to see :)
