Sunday @ The Rose Bowl

I had such a wonderful time hanging with my friends and MOM this weekend. The weather was beautiful, so we checked out the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena-A must stop for me every time I am in La La Land!!! Yup, I HEART Vintage Clothing!

LA flea markets are the best! They're so much cheaper than NYC ones!!! I always find the best stuff out in LA, and at an awesome price!

YUMI KIM Holiday Bowling Bash!

This year I decided to do a Holiday Bowling Party instead of our annual holiday dinner. For most of us, it's been ages since we had last bowled or even hung out together. While most companies are cutting back and not having a holiday party, I feel it's important for us to get together and bond as a team. We ended up having a blast, and felt like little kids all over again....all on a low budget! Whoohoo!

I sported a super casual preppy look for the day =). LOVE my cashmere J Crew sweater!

Check out pix of our Holiday Bowling Bash! YUMI KIM staff-old school and new school in tha house! 
Thanks guys for such a fun night! Can't go wrong with pizza, beer, and bowling, right? You guys all rock! It was so good to see the entire YUMI KIM family (old school and new school) all in one place. LOVE you all, and THANK YOU so much for doing such an amaaaaazing job!

Soffia Coppola's SC Bag for Louis Vuitton

It's been awhile since I'd bought an LV bag. I don't know if it's because I gotten over rockin the whole logo bag look, or I haven't found anything from LV worth splurging on.  Well, looks like things are about to change. T Magazine from the NY Times released an image of the new SC bag, and I have to say, I'm really feeling Sofia Coppola's SC BAG for Louis Vuitton. It's super cute! I LOVE the shape, the size, and it looks so CLASSIC! This might be my first LV purchase in years =). 

Gotta put this on my Xmas Wish List...

The Material Girl and LV

So the rumors are true....Madonna will be Louis Vuitton's new face for Spring 2009!

Set in a french bistro, inspired by Marc Jacob's Parisian theme from his Spring 09 runway collection, check out 2 of the 6 campaign shots photographed by Steven Meisel.  I LOVE the vibe and feel of these pix!

Who doesn't LOVE the Material Girl? This woman totally rocks! Good call, Marc, on choosing Madge as the new face of LV's spring campaign!

Manhattan Vintage Show

I've been trying to wrap up my Fall '09 collection over the past few weeks. I'm almost done, but I'm not fully satisfied with all the prints and bodies I have so far. This past Saturday, I stopped by the Manhattan Vintage Show to check out some of my favorite vendors and to also find some new inspiration to help me finish up my Fall '09 collection.

My outfit for the day...
When I'm feeling lazy, I tend to rock the all black look.
*I found this cool vintage belt at the Manhattan Vintage Show that morning! LOVE IT!
By adding a cool vintage belt, it totally spiced up my outfit!
Rows of vintage vendors at the show.  Lots of cool stuff, but some was way overpriced!
Business Tip of the Week:  Always check out the flea markets, thrift stores, and vintage shows for inspiration. I'm always scoping out these places because you never know what cool pieces you may find! I've been inspired by items from cool prints on a rug, hand towels, vintage scarves, to cool artwork! 

Awww, me and my obsession with vintage shoes!
Ooooh, LOVE this belt! Super cool design for $25! That's a steal!
Wow, check out these super narrow shoes! 
I always LOVE looking at vintage jewelry. So much character to each piece! Vintage is classic =)!
I was on the hunt for new reading glasses. Wow, so many great options!
Last stop, Vintage Chanel Booth. Drool....Drool...Drool....  
I couldn't resist! I ended up walking out with 2 bags. YIKES! A girl's gotta spoil herself sometimes, right?
After a long productive day, I needed a girls' night out!Here I am rockin one of my favorite Fall '08 prints with my new vintage belt that I found at the Manhattan Vintage Show. Time to go relax and live a little!

My home away from home...

I saw this on The Cool Hunter  this morning, the island of NURAI-big WOW! I would love to run off to this island and have it be my home away from home!

Located northeast of Abu Dbai city, Nurai is a 130,000 square meter island that's being tranformed into a luxurious resort with private residence, one luxury boutique hotel, 31 beachfront estates and 36 water villas. If you want to live here, be prepared to fork out a lot of paper!

Check out Nurai's exclusive private residential estate...

Due to open in 2010, these private residence start around $25mil a pop. Uh, I better stop daydreaming and should get back to work. A girl gotta start saving! I have $24,999,999 to go! LOL

It could be yours for $20,000 (and up), the updated Oyster Perpetual Day-Date watch includes a bigger 41mm dial (up from 38mm on the original Day-Date), and comes in your choice of 18k gold or platinum case with a sold 18k gold or platinum Super-President bracelet to match. There will be 5 versions to choose from. For those of you who are ballers, it also comes in a white gold version with 8 diamonds and 2 baguettes set into the dial. Sweeeet!

Weekly Obsession: JAE BASILIO

This week I'm OBSESSING over my JAE BASILIO sweaters. My girlfriend, Janet, sent me a box full of luscious cashmere sweaters and cool, funky pieces for me to ROCK. I tend to get lazy during the winter, so I'm always rocking black leggings (my staple item during the winter) with a cute top. Thank you for the gifts, mama! I LOVE THEM!  

Yes, I'm all about rockin Jae Basilio this week!
Check out my outfits for the week....

I'm OBSESSED with Jae Basilio's Randi Cashmere Cardigan!!! I have it in every color!!! It's an easy layering piece. It's great for when you need that quick cute piece to throw over when you're running out the door. I've practically been living in it.  
Thanks so much Janet, for the beautiful Jae Basilio pieces! You rock, mama! LOVE YOU! You know YUMI KIM supports JB for life!
