A few weeks ago I went to Palm Springs for my Sister's bachelorette party. Unfortunately we were there for the three days it was raining. It apparently only rains on average 3 days a year, and  we were stuck in torrential.downpours. Luckily, Palm Springs has the best outlets - they have one of two existing AllSaints outlets.

I obviously love AllSaints (beading and sequins, duh), so I was super excited to nab this top at deep discount. Everything was so cheap (relatively). They had cashmere sweaters for $30. Yea, cashmere.

My Family likes to tease my eldest sister for only dressing/decorating in monochrome...most often in brown.  A real conversation:

"I am thinking of getting new dining chairs."
"Okay, what color?"
"Well...The table is brown, and it has brown placemats and a bowl with decorative balls, which are also brown. I was thinking of these light brown chairs...will that match?"

The last time she visited California, she was dressed in blue jeans and a light blue blazer, blue Longchamp, and a blue-gray scarf.  But I see the will never worry about looking mismatched when you dress like a crayon (her words). Today my crayola color is Burnt Sienna.

For some reason, after we graduated, these sculptures started popping up all over campus! I think there are at least five! Rene and I thought they would look cool in photos, but didn't anticipate the climbing children.

Looking like a bug in these sunnies.

P.S. can you spot Rene?

Clarins Opalescence Review + Get some free mini services!

All product c/o Clarins Paris

This past week we got a special intro to the new Clarins Opalescence line.  Upon hearing about the line, we were of course sold. However, nothing is better than actually trying out the product yourself!

Here's what we are trying: 

Award Winning Double Serum: Smells amazing, and is moisturizing without feeling slippery. The ingredients are targeted towards anti-aging, but wrinkles are not on the top of our skincare concerns list. However, it has also been show to even skin tone and decrease visible signs of pores after four week. Fingers crossed!
Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster: Instead of dying your skin, the DHA in this is supposed to interact with the surface of your skin to create a natural-looking tan. It's been two days (Mal has been doing one drop per day) and the effects are really slight, but noticeable! 
Multi-Active Day Cream: Again, wrinkles are not our main concern, but this smells great and is the right amount of moisturizing.
Instant Light Illuminator in Rose and Champagne: The packaging on this is so pretty we almost don't care how it works. Kidding. We both like the Champagne color, since we both tend to get red easily. This reflects light without making us look sweaty!
Opalescence Face and Blush Powder: Okay, we are makeup noobs, so we are not entirely sure how to use this one. We are unclear on how it is both face and blush...we need someone to show us how to use it before we can decide whether we like it.
Wet and Dry Eye Quartet Mineral Palette in Vibrant Light: We aren't huge on eyeshadow, although we are always tempted to try! The purple and dark green in this are so pretty, and it comes with a guide for application.
Cream Blush in Grenadine: Perfect for us lazies who can't be bothered with a blush brush - this blush has a creamy texture that you can swipe on with your fingers. Plus it doubles as lip gloss. Bonus!
Sunscreen Care Oil Spray: Haven't tried this one yet, but being able to protect the scalp from sun damage seems like a no-brainer. 

If you are tempted to try some Clarins too, the Clarins spa is opening this Friday at Bloomingdales in downtwon San Francisco! There will be hors d'oeuvres and champagne, and free mini services! 

Plus, if you choose to do a facial ($50 for the grand opening), you will receive a special gift.

RSVP to or call 415-856-5459.

mesh pencil skirt, everlane tee, readytwowear

On Whit: Everlane tee, c/o Choies pencil skirt with mesh panel and box clutch, c/o LeBunnyBleu sandals

I'm currently obsessed with pencil skirts, so I naturally gravitated toward this one from Choies.  Too bad the sizing is a little off and the fabric isn't forgiving enough for the skirt to look flattering on.

You can't go wrong in a Canadian long as your denims are two different washes.  To be extra sure I don't look like I am wearing coveralls, I like to wear a super light wash with a medium wash. Then to be extra, extra careful, I add a belt to break up the two.

My obsession with rompers/overalls started at an early age.  Looking at my Elementary school portraits, I wore the same pair of overalls consecutively for 3 years.  I'm pretty sure I only stopped when I outgrew them.
