#besobold //madewell 2 Bandits event

(Forever 21 girls coat (love this one!), thrifted Ralph Lauren shirt, True Religion denim c/o, vintage Gucci belt, TOKYObay watch c/o, J. Crew Everly pumps}

Being bold can mean many things, so when True Religion sent over these jeans and asked me to "Be So Bold" I knew I was going to go big- not so jumping off a cliff big, but more purple lipstick, fur coat rocking, man watch wearing big. Going big, or going home right?

Let's start with this coat, this deceivingly good faux fur coat. It's Forever 21 and I found it in the girl's section, on sale. I know, it's a lot to take in. I'll give you a moment.

Next, this bold lip. It's my perfectly purple pencil eyeliner, muddled in with some mauve lipstick. I'm always on the hunt for the perfect seasonal lip shade, so when I received a few compliments on it in person I knew I was onto something. This bold lip will definitely stay in the rotation this fall.

And then of course there is that ginormous yet glorious rose gold specimen on my wrist- a man's watch. I'm not one to shy away from the boy's section, I find my best pieces there. The masculine- the dial size- yet feminine -the rose gold hue- kept me intrigued and let's just say you'll see this watch often. 

Also, my friends over at The 2 Bandits are hosting a lovely event at the Madewell store in SF tonight from 6-8p. If you are around you should definitely go. There will be cocktails, discounts on merch, and the first 20 people to get there will get a free The 2 Bandits ring....sounds like reason enough to make the most of this Thursday night! Hope to see you there.

lim addiction

With friends and family sales in full-swing my every growing lust for a fab new handbag is alive and thriving. There are so many stunning leather totes, polished satchels and leopard calf hair crossbody’s I just need. The tiny notepad app on my outdated iPhone 5G is overflowing with numerous lists of to-do’s and to-buy’s, good thing Lyst helps me keep an online checklist of all those wants and even alerts me when any of my top picks go on sale.

As you all know, my Pashli is my baby, she has gone everywhere with me. When I first got my hands on her she got dragged along everywhere- from work, to events, on planes and trains- quite the social butterfly she is. Check out some of my favorites of us from last year...

But Mr. Lim has upped the ante and now there are so many more fabulous accoutrements I may need so Pashli has friends to play with. Here is my new covet Lim list. Which is your fave?
