Christian Louboutin Patent Slingbacks  |  Zara Sequin Clutch  |  Forever 21 Cable Knit Hat

I had a wonderful weekend in LA celebrating my birthday.  My days were filled with lots of food, some shopping and spending time with friends and family.  I wore this outfit while shopping in Beverly Hills; my feet were a bit tired at the end of the day, but I can't seem to get myself to wear flats when wearing a nice outfit :).  We had lunch at Villa Blanca, if you an avid Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fan you'll know this is Lisa Vanderpump's restaurant.  The inside was beautiful and we did happen to sit closely to Lisa and her husband.  I had hoped for a Jiggy sighting but Jiggy was not available. 

Besides my birthday, I was celebrating another addition; I hadn't posted anything public until now, but my husband and I are expecting a little one in May.  Soooo, I am a little over 4 months pregnant.  I saw these pics and there is no hiding my tummy.  It wasn't until last week that I felt a bit heavier.  The months ahead will be interesting to see how I do outfit posts, how I feel, how I look, and my adventures with my first baby.  We are very excited (and a bit scared at the same time)!  

Can you believe this week is Thanksgiving?  The craziness of the holiday has begun!  Well, along with my big news is a fantastic T-day special we are running for t+j Designs.  We have such great customers, supporters, and readers and we are offering the biggest discount yet!  25% off your total order (including style steals and sale) with free shipping over $75!  Use promo code THANKS at checkout.   This promotion runs until November 30th, shop away and remember, once an item runs out, we won't have it available again!

  5. Omg! When I saw Chanel on the pictures and your fantastic outfit thought this post could not get any better ... but baby? I'm so over the moon, so happy for you! That is going to be one stylish baby, congrats on this new chapter of your life!

    ps. about the clutch I wrote ??? cause the clutch is brandless, I got it at a local boutique, I'll keep my eyes open in case I see similar online ;)

  16. Happy Birthday and Congratulations on your new addition. If you hadn't mentioned it, I still wouldn't have known. You're so small. You look fabulous and looks like the birthday was celebrated nicely. How was Lisa's restaurant? I looked online at her prices last week and they weren't bad at all.

  52. I would never wear flats with such a great outfit either. Looking great sometimes just has to come with a little discomfort. Hee Hee

    BTW... thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you will be back soon? You have a great blog & great style so I am following now.

  54. First of all, I love your style, so I have been visiting your blog for a while but just not commenting. My husband is from Chicago, so I'm always showing him the chinatown background pics from your shots as we reminisce about the avocado shake at Joy Yee's. Lol. And now I find out that you're 4 months . . so am I! :) Well, take care! :)
