Every holiday my family does a big fancy multi-course meal at my aunt's house.  It's usually pretty hectic, but I managed to have my brother snap a few shots while avoiding the kitchen ;).

Hi all!  Just a quick update during the busy holidays.  How was your week?  I'm currently catching up on some work at a Target cafe.  It's freezing in here...my fingers can barely move so I'm gonna cut it short.  Happy holidays!

I have actually been looking for a feather skirt, but could never find one in my price range...so I was pretty excited to find this furry one at FrontRowShop.  The fur has the same effect as feathers, but is more season-appropriate. Although seasonal dressing is not too relevant in the Bay Area...it was 70 degrees today.

I hope everyone passes a warm and happy holiday! Be sure to wear lots of rhinestones (I do anyway, but this is the time of year when my giant jewelry/sequins is actually appropriate).

P.S. There is still time to enter the Choies Giveaway...go go go!

This weekend we were all set to go to the reopening of our favorite Berkeley Chinese restaurant, Great China, only to have them delay the opening for a few days :(.  The original building had a fire a couple of years ago (while we were there!), and we have anxiously awaited for them to reopen ever since.

Seriously, if you are in Berkeley around lunchtime...go get the spicy garlic pork lunch special!

What goes with rhinestones? MORE RHINESTONES. You know me, always going for that *subtle* sparkle.

If I look a little awkward in these photos, it's because I had an impromptu audience. Between the vocal stranger yelling at me to pose like Tyra's Next Top Model and the rando photographer taking his own photos...I felt a little uncomfortable.

Snapped these photos quickly as the sun was setting and ended up with what looks like photos taken on separate days.  Edmond convinced me that the first location wasn't great so we took a few steps around the corner where there was different lighting.  I still can't decide which I like better, so here they both are.

12/5 H&M Powell Reopening

Lovely reader Eve showing off her new coat!DSC_3248 DSC_3254 DSC_3245
As promised, here is a quick post from the Powell Street SF H&M event that we attended last Thursday!

We were super excited to get to pre-shop courtesy of H&M for ourselves and our twitter winner Eve (modeling her new coat above).  We all got our hands on some cute stuff!

As far as the remodel, we must say, the gold racks and mirrors are a total upgrade. The new fitting room is pretty swanky. The men's section is also an entire floor now (good news for boyfriends), which means the women's is entirely on the first floor. We are interested in seeing where designer collabs will be hosted now, since Womens does seem slightly more cramped...

Here is a peek of some of the items we selected, which you will see styled on the blog shortly!

Angora Sweater, Crepe Pants, Contrast Panel Boots, Suede Jodhpur Booties (sold out online)

The Camel Coat and the Great Pyramid

On Mal: H&M contrast collar camel coat (outerwear was 50% off!), J. Crew Skinnies (similar here), Cotton On tee, Ebay Necklace, c/o H&M Suede Jodhpur boots, c/o Bollare La Mer Cairo Pyramid Watch

This past Thursday Whit and I had the pleasure of pre-shopping the newly remodeled H&M at Powell Street, and help out our lovely reader Eve pick out a new outfit c/o H&M.  Eve was between two coats, this one and another (equally cute)...and after she went with the other, I decided I had to snatch this one up at 50% off for myself hehe.

We will be posting more about the event soon, so stay tuned to see more of the event/what we chose :).

On another note, how cute is this stud watch from La Mer Collections? I like that it is disguised as a bracelet...popping open the cover feels very secret agent.

Isn't this wall art so darn cute?  I took photos across the street a while back, and this is what completes the whole piece.  It's one of the hidden gems that I've discovered in the Sunset besides Grand View Park.

I spy some of my favorite places in San Francisco: Golden Gate Park and AT&T Park.  And I spy some of my not-so-favorite things about the city: meter maids and seagulls.  Not gonna lie, these seagulls are pretty adorable.  For a good second I thought they were penguins.


So..Mal confirmed that the birds above are, in fact, penguins.  My bad.  What are penguins doing in San Francisco?
