Sheer embroidered top

This lovely top is everything feminine with a tank under, shorts and sandals and you are ready for summer! The sleeves are long for a petite girl, but I solved it by cutting off the bell sleeve and leaving only the embroidery which looks lovely. Also, it runs a bit small, so I ordered a Medium and it fits perfect through the body and length for petites, but it may be cropped for regular size frame. The material has no stretch and although is on the cheapy side it’s expected for the price point at forever21. Overall, the top will make a summer statement and under $30.

Sales 2018

Sales

I had my eye on the jcrew Stewart plaid shirt during the Holidays, but my size sold out. When I saw it on sale for $25 I had to get. I am so glad I did… I understand why It’s so popular. It fits so well and It’s very different from most tops. So, get it while It’s on sale! Check out petite coats on sale prices are very good right now…unfortunately they sell out fast. They can sell out while you have it in your cart, so check out immediately. My secret is to check between 12 and 3 am. If I happen to be awake I check their site for sales. I’ve gotten lucky as most of my coats I was able to snatch during sales.

LOFT is another favorite for great sales. The striped sweater and sleeveless top are so pretty and stylish. Right nowthe 40%off sale is the way to go! This two items are so pretty. I have worn them a lot since I go them. Only, I wish I had gotten them on sale. The sleeveless top is so pretty. The neck and buttons on the shoulders make it so delicate and stylish!

The booties are under 40 and are so stylish I included an option for you. I specially love the fringe on the back. It feels really cool when you walk!

Jumpsuits

This red lovely comes in petite and regular. Also available in black in regular fit. They are so pretty! I never tried the 0, but the 2petite fits like a glove and the red is perfect to have in my closet for those days I need a sexy outfit for a hot date! The black velvet jumpsuit is so classy and pretty. It has a hint of classy and sexy at the same time. Both jumpsuits in the regular size need hemming the leg if you are under 5′ but the red is also available in petite. The black velvet jumper comes in different colors and the black only seems available at the store, but online has the pink blush and it is so pretty.

Chemex coffee maker

Crate and barrel mug Glass with handle  Chemex glass jar Crate and barrel

I decided to do a blog on the chemex coffee maker because although it requires a few more steps than pushing a button the coffee tastes fresh and delicious. And let’s not forget that coffee machines tend to get mold and bacteria that we can’t reach or even see unless we brake it apart. I decided to buy the chemex coffee maker and get back to basics. I am so glad I did and would never go back to using coffee machines. The thought of not being able to clean the inside drove me crazy. I always wondered what kind of bacteria was lurking inside the little machine.

The chemex coffee maker is simple to use. Simply, grind your beans, place the filter in the decanter, spoon your coffee and add hot water! Done, enjoy and fresh and delicious cup of coffee. Good bye mold and bacteria and hello delicious coffee!

I keep mine on the counter because it looks so pretty and clean. I read some reviews that it is easy breakable, so I have been extra careful. Mine makes 4.5 cups although it’s supposed to make 6. I keep a frother next to it and sometimes I get fancy and make lattes. The mugs, I also got at Crate and Barrel and I love them. They are different and stylish and also sturdy.

Although, my chemex is fabulous and I highly recommend it here are some cons…   1) It won’t keep coffee hot for long periods of time 2) It takes a few more steps than coffee machines 3) It could brake.                                                                                              If the Chemex is for you then don’t hesitate and get one. 😉

Jewelry 2018

Tiffany & Co

I haven’t blogged in a while, it has become easier to post on Instagram and maybe I needed a little inspiration. 🙂 I visited the Tiffany’ s store and I got my inspiration back! I have fallen in love with their silver jewelry. Like all silver, with time the pieces will tarnish, so care and cleaning will have to go into any piece your purchase.

The small heart pendant with key on a 18″ chain. It’s lovely and shiny just the perfect size to layer it with other pieces. The heart is about 1″ from top to bottom (see picture below). The only critique is that the chain is very thin and the heart flips on its side, so I will be purchasing a link and a beaded chain for it. The link is about $20 and the beaded chain $50.

The silver mini double heart pendant on a 16″ chain is so small and dainty.  Is also available in different colors. The hearts are very small, less than half an inch(see pics below) and one of the hearts is engraved with the return to Tiffanys logo. The extra heart could be engraved for an extra charge. Again, the chain is very thin and the hearts can’t come off unless you change the links. The links that come with it are too small that they can’t go through the clasp. The 16″ is a perfect length for petite frames, if you are very small on your neck and shoulder area. However, you may want to go into the store to make sure that you are comfortable with the length. Both pieces retail at a very fair price under $200.00 if you’d like to venture into the Tiffanys wagon! Below I included pictures of sizes and length of the two necklaces 😉

Tops 2017

Animal print sweater

This sweater is very comfortable, soft and affordable yay! It washes well, but I laid to dry. I bought the xs and it fits perfectly on my short frame. The sleeves are folded, but it actually looks better this way. You could pair it with your favorite black leggings or skinny jeans. Add booties or a comfortable shoe for a casual look. The sweater has a classic look to it and you would never know is from target! It comes in three colors (green, gray and tan) Enjoy!

Jumpsuit

This jumpsuit is perfect for petite frames in size small no alterations needed. I never tried the medium, but the small fits perfect. If not available online try visiting the stores… I saw plenty sizes when I went this weekend. All the colors are perfect, but I loved the olive green! I wear sandals  or flats with it and added a black ribon around the waist for a pop. Let me know if you like it! Also, check out the Agaci website under rompers and jumpsuits for more choices! Enjoy!

Shoes

New Balance running heaven!

I was due for a pair of running shoes and I tried many pairs and looked at many stores. Mostly it was a fail due to the lack of available sizes. However, this one fit in a 5.5 and I never wanted to take them off. They are very comfortable and they look so clean and stylish. I love all the colors, but the tan was available at the store and I plan on ordering the grey online. The shoe is like walking on clouds. I wear them every day on my trail walk with my dog and I always forget that I even have shoes on. The size runs a little small, so go a half size up! Enjoy 😉
