Cherry Bomb

07 June 2015

I'm back! Sorry about my absence...yet again! The end of my Junior year at university was incredibly hectic, and just as things are starting to calm down, there's only a week left until summer school begins! My hard work has been really paying off, however, as I passed my last semester with straight A's (hooray!!!)! Even more exciting, I now officially have a permanent home in San Francisco! No more dorm life for me! It's been a rough road house hunting, but my roommate, Jessie, and I finally found our dream home that's absolutely perfect for us (maybe even a little too big) with a great deal of help, and I can't wait to share it with all of you once it's set up! 

While all this craziness has been taking up most of my mind space, I found some time in-between to take photos of outfits I've worn and loved to share with all of you. This means there will be a few outdated looks (and by outdated, I mean that I am blonde now!) 

This little red look (and watching a lot of Mad Men) really sparked my more mature fashion awakening. Oddly, this means I've noticed that I have more of an interest dressing the way that I liked to when I was 15, which was entirely '50s-'60s inspired housewife type looks. This has also inspired the d├ęcor for my bedroom in my house, which I can't wait to share with you! Probably the biggest change for me is that I've been wearing heels more often than ever. This may not be the most convenient style of dress for living in hilly San Francisco, but it definitely gives me a confidence boost! Despite it being summertime, a vintage-inspired faux-fur coat in San Francisco is always a must.

In an effort to simply and re-brand myself, I will be selling some clothes I no longer want for discounted prices (including pieces that have been featured on the blog!) on a collaborative page alongside my roommate, Jessie. Once it's completed, I will definitely be sharing it with you all to check out, so be on the lookout for that!

Stay sweet

New from eShakti (plus a FREE $35 coupon!)

As most of you already know (due to a previous post), I am in love with the brand eShakti. Even better than the clothing that they provide is the underlying message that goes along with it--there is no such thing as the right size or shape, and if you love a piece of clothing you deserve to feel good in it! Well, I was super excited to find out that eShakti has new lines in stock perfect for summertime, and even is including new customisable pieces such as pants (something I definitely need to better incorporate into my wardrobe), jumpsuits, rompers, and more!

Along with these new additions, eShakti has also launched its revamped website, allowing for an easier navigation and shopping experience. The new categories are conveniently listed at the top, so completing your outfit is no sweat.

If you're not already convinced eShakti is your one stop shopping destination, then check out a few of my favourite pieces they have up for sale right now!

  1. Brooklyn Dress ($59.95) - I'm obsessed with this retro silhouette and unique colour, definitely a must for my wardrobe. And the best part? It has pockets! A match made in heaven.
  2. Floral Crochet Lace Crop Top ($32.95 *sale*!) - Is this not the most darling top you've ever seen? Classic, clean lines but with my favourite addition--lace! This top is from eShakti's latest Contemporary line, which now is 40% off everything!.
  3. Stripe Print Crepe Jogger Pant ($38.95 *sale*!) - This is something very different than what I normally go for, and that's what I love about it! I love the look of tapered ankle-length trousers, and these look so comfortable and cute, perfect for summer in San Francisco, where it's not always bright and sunny.
  4. Check Print Two-Buckle Belt Dress ($99.95) - This was the real showstopper dress for me. I'm in love with the shape and neckline, and the print is to die for. Who doesn't love a dress with a free belt anyway?
  5. Sash Tie Flowy Crepe Shorts ($59.95) - This is my way of cheating the shorts look. I love how with your legs together these could totally pass as a cute mini skirt, with the comfort and security of being shorts. And they're just feminine enough to add a bit of personality to any outfit.
ssed with eShakti like I am, then I have even more exciting news that's sure to get your attention. Drumroll please... For the next two weeks (ending 21st June 2015), you can use the coupon code THEPETITEPIXIE35 for a free $35 coupon toward your next purchase!

Stay sweet ♡
