I bought this dress with the intent of wearing it to a fancy little brunch with some cute little sandals and somehow I ended up in it at the Oakland Symphony. Ha! 
But the fact that there was another young lady there in the same dress and my photographer said “whoa you need to wear that to the opera” I knew I choose the perfect dress for a perfect evening. 
Are you getting a little (or a lot) fancy this holiday season?
Dressing up is one of my favorite things about this time of year!

She's bakkkkkk. I know I've been posting pictures of my trip here and there, but I took about a 5 month break from personal style blogging and about a 2 month break from social media altogether. Long story short, I saw Hamilton and went to SF Pride on the same day and got some amazing content for IG and the blog and guess what? My phone crashed on me. CRASHED! And I lost everything from the previous 8 months. It affected me in a way that it wouldn't have had I not had a blog. I was sad. So, so, so, so sad.  I was stressed. I was mad. Willing to pay crazy amounts of money to possibly restore my phone. All because I lost some stupid pictures? Ha! So I said, you know what? This is too much, and I'm just walking away from all of it, and I did. But I had a shoot a couple of weeks ago, and another shoot yesterday so for now, I'm bakkkkkkkkkk and I'm also now backing up my phone. Boom!  
Now about the clothes! I wore this skirt to the oh so fabulous Veuve Clicqout Polo Classic in sunny LA, but I decided I wanted to fallerize the look despite the cherry blossom print and soft green color. And what better way to do that than with a classic turtleneck and some over the knee boots! 

WEARING: old skirt (SIMILAR FOR $22), nordstrom turtleneck & sunnies (ALMOST THE SAME), unisa over the knee boots (SIMILAR UNDER $100)

Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild

Saved the best for last! Well I still think my day in Cannes was my favorite, but my day at Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild was a close second, if not a tie. I’d heard the name Rothschild before but was not all that familiar with the family—just knew the name sounded rich and if they had a palace that kindly allowed commoners to visit, I had to do see it. 

(pink on the outside, pink on the inside)

We started the day with lunch, drinks and desert in the dining room. The menu is somewhat limited if I remember correctly but I wouldn’t pass it up. I mean how often do you get to say you dined in a palace?!
(ladies who lunch)
(the could have given me 1 more shrimp)

After lunch we took our time exploring each and every room of the opulent mansion learning the history with audio/headphones they provided us. Beware, there’s no air in the mansion, only in the dining area and I about died, but it was fun :) 
After the hot, sweaty indoor tour we went outside for some hot, sweaty outdoor fun where we took a ton of pics of course and explored the 9 gardens on the property. Actually, we only found 2 of the 9 :-/ Don’t tell anyone, but I can’t imagine it would have gotten any more beautiful then what we saw! 
With all that said, I highly, highly recommend a visit to Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild.

Next up on the French Riviera was Eze, the must see hillside village with amazing views, unique shopping and the very fragrant Fragonard Perfume factory. 

We spent way too much time and money at the perfume factory. From the tour, to the education on all the scents, give yourself at least 2 hours & $100+ here alone. It's a great place to buy gifts and souvenirs!
(where it all goes down)
(love the simple, yet opulant gold bottles)

Aside from the factory the village is so charming! We started off with lunch at LE PINOCCHIO and then began the trek up the hill.
(that sauce for the salmon was delicious)
I'm not sure we made it to the top, in our most appropriate slides and sandals (ha!) 
(rest stop)

But we saw great views, gelato shops, tea and soap vendors, and even a dessert botanical garden making the trek completely worth it!
(can you smell the roses?)

(monte carlo!!)
From Eze we ubered (yes there is Uber) to Monaco/Monte Carlo. It's also an easy bus ride away. Just have someone in the area point you in the right direction. I didn't get to explore Monaco the way I wanted because we got there so late, but it's quite spectacular at night and in my opinion, it's more glamorous than Dubai. I was mesmerized.
