Belated Christmas day post.

Xmas accessories
Dress by Joli, navy uniqlo tights, Banana Republic loafer DIY heels (I painted the heels with black lacquer), All Saints denim jacket, vintage remake necklace from Etsy gifted by my bff, Giles & Bros. railroad spike cuff gifted by the Hubby (with the inscription Joshua 1:9- my life verse), Banana Republic rose gold studded bracelet
br shoes
Joshua 1:9
My Hubby took these photos on our way to church on Christmas morning. This Christmas crept up  rather quickly, and I felt most unprepared. However, it was a relief to have the day off and enjoy the company of friends and family, even though I wasn't able to spend Christmas with my immediate family this year -- I plan on making up for that in the next year...

Below are some photos I shot during a family wedding in Maryland. It was a gorgeous location, tucked away in a small town inside an old mill. We had a blast - not too shabby for our first east coast wedding celebration!

This shot was taken by the Hubby : ) I was wearing a dress I found for $2.50 at the FIDM student store in downtown LA!

Happy Belated New Year!

Narcissism at its finest.

I hope everyone had a fantabulous New Year's Eve! Even though I had to work that day, it was long forgotten once our festivities began. I feel truly blessed for all the events that have occurred in 2011, even though it was perhaps one of the most difficult years I have experienced in my short-lived life thus far. I am thankful to God for all the loving people he has brought into our lives this past year to love on us and show support through all situations.

And to those who are following this blog, thanks for taking part in my passion and love for fashion and everything else related to the superficial joys in life!

Here are some delayed photos from our NYC and MD trip back in November. Unfortunately, the Christmas displays weren't fully up yet, but it didn't make the East Coast any less amazing!
