I’ve always loved the idea of a flow-y blouse but have never been able to find one that looks right on me. I found this last week at a Korean fashion store called Fashion Q (similar to Forever 21) and have been obsessed with it ever since. Shockingly the small fits perfectly and gives me the right amount of blous-y/flow-y feel without it being too overwhelming. I love that I can wear this with shorts, jeans and skirts. As I mentioned in my last post, there are ties at the bottom and it looks great when worn casually but I prefer it tucked in for a dressier outfit.
The quality of items from Fashion Q is nothing to write home about. It’s comparable to Forever 21 quality and most of the clothes are very trendy. I was so torn between this color (navy/cream) and orange/cream. I was almost about to get both but refrained since I have way too many duplicates in my closet already. I figured I would get much more wear out of the navy.
This past weekend, hubby and I celebrated my birthday (officially) and had an amazing time in Orange County. I went to my favorite mall – South Coast Plaza. It’s always a treat because I live extremely far away and I get super excited any chance I get to go.
We went to the Chanel Boutique in SCP and was surprised at my extra birthday gifts. I got a this amazing Chanel pendant necklace with matching earrings. The earrings are bigger than normal studs but I really like the size. I love getting Chanel pieces from the actual boutique because you get the beautiful packaging, signature camellia flowers, bag and ribbons. I don’t know about you but I love pretty packaging : )
We ate at a restaurant called Big Fish. It’s not a typical restaurant I would choose for my birthday only because it’s very loud and more of a bar type of atmosphere. I usually like to dine on the water in a more romantic scenery. I had soft shell sliders last year and have not been able to stop thinking about them so we went back to fulfill my seafood cravings. There’s always a long wait but it’s definitely worth it. We waited for well over an hour but got a great seat with a nice view. I almost died from hunger but it was well worth it:)
We had lobster mac and cheese, crab cake BLT on sweet hawaiian roll, lobster rolls and s’mores with vanilla ice-cream for dessert. The prices are so affordable given they are in a very touristy area and across from the beach. Thank you hubby for a wonderful birthday (and all my gifts)!
