A Dreamy Day at Stanford : Colorblock Bubble Hem Dress

September 9, 2013


Hello everyone, I hope you had a great weekend! Yesterday Luis & I took a photography class together in Palo Alto, and after being so inspired by the new techniques we’ve learned, we decided to give our new learnings a whirl at Stanford University. We got there just when the sun was setting so the lighting was just right.


In this look, I’m wearing an Aritzia bubble hem dress paired with gladiator shoes and a bright blue clutch. As for accessories, I’m wearing stables you’ve seen in previous looks. Because I have small fingers and wrists, it’s a little hard for me to find jewelries that fit. If you know any boutiques that sell fabulous jewelry for petite gals, please let me know. Appreciate your help!
