how to style Wild Doll's Black&Gold studded frock dress! plus a GIVEAWAY!

here's another piece from Wild Doll that I styled in various ways!
It's the Black & Gold studded frock dress! It fits lovely along your contour :) I highly recommend it!
I think it's one of those dresses that works all-year-round with the help of layers as it gets colder.
Since it's black, it goes well with any type of shoe too!
The studs are the brass kind and so it's not too much at all. It's a great accent to the already cute dress!

simply with Kenneth Cole shoes

nude pumps: GoJane, slouch top: FashionQ

shirt: Japan, flats: Cotton On
 I swear I wasn't upset or angry...!! haha
But as the weather gets colder, it will work with any cute shirt layered on top! and of course, a blazer or jacket!

crochet shorts: Threadsence, flats: GoJane
wear it like a top!!!! It's great because it's a form-fitting dress so will easily work like that. So it's nice to wear with shorts or even a flowy maxi skirt.

So there you have it! An awesome all-year-round dress that could work both casual or dressy!

Also, don't forget to go to my Facebook page to enter to win a pair of these booties from Wild Doll !!
You've got until this Friday at noon!!!

Skulls...yay or nay?

1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

So I've always sort of avoided skull-related items because I always thought they were scary looking or weren't very "me"... I think they really do have scary/negative connotations :(
BUT!! lately I've been coming across a lot of "cuter-looking" skull items..!!
Especially that necklace! As you can see I sort of picked out some friendlier skulls above haha.
It's hard to see.. but that first blouse has skull studs! and that black shirt is a DIY project!

what do you guys think of skulls?

things to celebrate (and be grateful for!)

1. Joined the gym a couple weeks ago.
    It's been a lot of fun going to classes and a great way to release stress. I'm grateful for my health and ability to pay $40 a month!!!

2. Having awesome friends to go to Vegas with.
Sounds easy, sounds ordinary.. but when I think about it, a stress-free, drama-free, and laughter-filled trip with friends is the best thing I could ask for! Wouldn't you agree?

3. Having awesome sponsors like Wild Doll!
They have been so good to me and I am a lucky doll for having them as a sponsor!!!
check out those shoes I just got!! IN LOVE!

4. Living a short drive away from the beach where it's always sunny!
This is when I am so grateful about living in So.Cal! Thankful for our location & beautiful little house.

5. Taking a trip to San Diego for my birthday!
Although getting older is not the best of things, I'm still glad we get to go on lovely trips every so often.
The highlight of the trip definitely was the Safari park. I highly recommend it!!!

6. Having reached 100 BLOG FOLLOWERS!!!
Thank you guys!!! Planning on a big 100 followers Giveaway soon... stay tuned :)

7. August 18th marked 10 YEARS IN THE STATES for moi!
Yep! Since I moved here from Japan... 
I miss my family every day, but it has been a fantastic 10 years.
Especially since I met the man of my dreams.

Last but not least...

Celebrate LIFE... because lately I think to my self EVERY DAY,
how lucky and grateful I am to be living such a wonderful life.
