luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury - Coco

These shoes are perfect for comfort and chic - My adornment of them had begun a couple months ago, but I had tried to resist every time I walked past their glare at Nordstrom. I was always the type for beautiful designer heels, but something in me just couldn't grab the Chanel ballerinas. However, this torment of want vs. need was lost a few days ago with my first pair of Chanel classic ballerina flats finally sitting my shoe closet! 

Since Audrey Hepburn wore the Chanel ballerina flat in 1957, clearly, the classic ballerina flat never goes out of style. I considered that as an omen that I need to invest in these shoes. After all, shoes are our first impression on others, besides a proper mani and eyebrows. I am planning to grab these to NYC in September & hopefully London:) 

That day my designer shoe collecting grew by 1, and with it my love for shoes. These two-toned patent ballerinas are a modern take on the classic nude/black flat. I must confess that I am TERRIBLE at wearing shoes, and even more so, light/suede shoes for  more than a few months. I also have to rub, ding, or spill something on my shoes and have to throw them out the next day. 

The solution? Patent shoes. These shoes have 9 lives. The heels I own have lasted in Vegas, LA, and my ditzy self. 

So, Chanel, you have won me over again.

SG X Erin Fetherston

If you've been a reader of my blog for the past month, I'm sure you've seen the gorgeous black and white dress by ERIN I wore a few weeks ago. I mentioned that I was invited to her NYC Fashion Show last February but with flight delays and traffic, I was bummed that I was unable to make it. Luckily, Erin's team noticed my photos via social media and reached out for a collaboration! Couldn't say no.. the dresses are just too gorgeous. Total princess dresses!! 

Wore this white Snapdragon dress on Easter Sunday to church & dinner! I think I got about 10 compliments about it. The dress is a perfect fit and not too short, which I'm always cautious of - especially since I'm tall (5'11"), dresses are always cutting it a bit close. The detailing and the flared skirt are a chic, sophisticated dress with a side of playfulness.

I took multiple photos day/night so 1st look, Christian Louboutin Pumps + Chanel Handbag. 2nd look, Brian Atwood Pumps + Mini Prada + Prada Sunglasses + Diane Von Furstenberg coat. 

Stay tuned for more Erin Fetherston

Mani Party Pop-Up with Jessica Simpson

My girl Jessica (we refer to her by first name now) had sent over some fab products for my best friends and me to try out! It was her Fancy Girl perfume and 3 nail colors gift set, along with a gift certificate for a fun party mani-pop up for the 3 of us! Literally, so fab! The Fancy Girl perfume has a sweet essence with a hint of fruity & floral, which my best friend Alina totally loved. 

For the mani's - I chose the metallic gold with a coat of gold sparkles on the top. The accent nail was a polish from the salon :) My best friends, Alina & Tanya, both did different versions of the 3 nail colors. Thank you, Jessica, we had a Fancy time!

Trend to Try: Instagram Sunglasses

We all see the cool kids, bloggers, and celebs rocking dark shades in their heavy-edited by Valencia photos. It seems that these retro shapes have actually been making a come back (like everything else?). However, while wearing these rosy-dimmed or gold accented shades, one doesn't only experience the Instagram affect on camera, but from their own perspective as well. The trendy shades provide a warm and "SoCal" view of the world. Who doesn't love that?

It's perfect to feature these throwback designs on Throwback Thursday! Here are my favorite picks for the perfect summer sunnies for all budgets - I am obsessed with the Dior sunnies. Meanwhile, check out my own Instagram @societygrl :)
