I am pretty adventurous when it comes to trying new styles but I have my limits. Because I’m petite, I naturally gravitate towards clothes that flatter my figure and don’t overwhelm me. Dresses, rompers, jeans and skirts have always been my best friends. Pants and jumpsuits, not so much. However, a few months ago while shopping online I randomly spotted a delicate red jumpsuit. Something in me told me to take the plunge and I did, and I haven’t looked back since.

Since my last jumpsuit post, I have been eager to add more jumpsuits and rompers to my wardrobe. I was delighted to have stumbled upon this cute black jumpsuit while shopping for shoes a few weeks ago. It’s funny how a gem always reveals itself when you’re not looking for it.  I love the shape of this jumpsuit, and it meets all the checks on my list. Length, check. Fit, check. Soft and comfy, double check. When I wore this for my husband the first time, he grinned from ear to ear. Hah!

Since I didn’t want to look like Catwoman, I added a splash of color to the outfit. The cute floral belt and green clutch add an element of playfulness. I don’t want to take all the credit since the floral belt and white shoes were my husband’s ideas. I think he did a nice job, don’t you think? Meowwww. =)

Floral Print Dress at Pret-a-Porter SF

Over the weekend we had the pleasure of attending PRÊT-À-PORTER SF, a premier fashion event showcasing some of San Francisco’s most talented fashion designers. This was Luis and my first fashion show together and it didn’t disappoint. It was surreal seeing these innovative and beautiful designs strutting down the runaway. For a moment I felt like I was watching the finale of Project Runway, hoping Tim Gunn would come out at the end. It was definitely a memorable experience and I’m glad we came out to support the show. You can see some of my favorite pieces below.

Going to PRÊT-À-PORTER SF, I wore a mini floral print dress. I was at a loss on what to wear since we decided to go last minute, but thankfully this dress arrived right in the nick of time. Originally it was a midi dress that came past my knee, but I had it altered. My seamstress did an amazing job and she got it back to me less than 24 hours. It looks like a completely different dress when I got it back and I love it.

My FAVORITE piece of the entire show. It looks a little boxy from this angle, but I promise you it’s really flattering head on. I definitely see myself in this dress. It’s super cute with a dash of funky flare.

Hello everyone! This past weekend we continued our food tour and in the process hitting up some the most beautiful and steepy streets in San Francisco for our K-mart collaboration shoot. In this look, I’m wearing my first ever hi low dress and it’s from the Adam Levine collection. The minute I laid my eyes on this dress, I fell in love. It’s simple yet very flattering. It is also super soft. I’m afraid to wash it because I don’t want it to get fuzzy or shrink, it’s so perfect as is!

To complete the outfit, I’m pairing this darling dress with my favorite cobalt cropped pleather jacket and ankle strap sandals. I have been searching for a pair of ankle strap sandals for a very long time. It is always difficult since I wear size 3.5, but I stumbled upon these at Payless. They’re size 5 but I found a way to force them to fit with these. Not bad huh?
