Beach Tanning Sesh #2 + Convoy Run

Time for another update! So a few days ago, Kayla and I both had the day off of work and finally had time to spend together. ♥. Hahahaha. She slept over Monday night after she got off from work, and on Tuesday we went to the beaacchh to tan our white stomachs and then headed to convoy afterward to stock up on snacks for school. Well... I needed to get gas first but found out when we got to the gas station that I had forgotten my debit card AND my driver's license (illegal driving!!!!!!!), so we had to head back to my house first to grab those HAHA. Good thing I needed gas! Anyway, aside from a grip of snacks, we also bought ourselves some other goodies while down there... because who knows how long it'll be before we can both find time to make another trip!

Beach pics @ Oceanside:

Lunch/dinner (aka lunner) @ Tofu House (korean food):

My korean bbq hot stone mix rice and Kayla's shrimp boiled tofu w/ brown rice that was actually purple, but delicious haha.

Froyo @ Yogurt World:

Chillin' and eatin' in my prius rofl. Green Tea tart and Pistachio flavors are yummms. But acai never again, right Kayla!? And what were your other ones? Something else fruity but sour... hahah. Hey we still needa get boba sometime AHHH. But froyo hit the spotttt.

Goodies from at Mitsuwa, Morning Glory, and Marukai:

Snacks, snacks, and more snacks from Mitsuwa/Marukai. New pencils/erasers from Morning Glory. And a new tiny Japanese-English dictionary for me...because I fail at Japanese. ;( Ok so, now all we have to do is spend roughly $390 more at Sanseido to get something free! LOL WTF. day. :) I love love love my date days with Kaylachaaan!

Not-so-mini haul.

Why, Guess, WHY!? This isn't good... spending so much. :( But at least I didn't have to pay full price for all these goodies! I feel like I've been working like a madwoman, but I have no prior experience to compare to so maybe it's not so bad. Honestly, it isn't so bad working there... I'd say I'm pretty lucky to have been able to snag this job. And I obviously NEED to work now, after this shopping spree... T_T. Haha, alright, I've been lagging a bit with this, so here we go (and don't mind my ridiculous poses and/or facial expressions... I have way too much fun by myself -_-):

1. White V-neck tee with GUESS blingin' across the chest, of course. Haha. Gotta represent, sonnn! The downside to this shirt is that those sequin things which are the makeup of the letters are basically like stickers, so they can (and will probably) end up falling off. But I liked how simple the style of this shirt is, and how it's a V-neck, so I just couldn't resist getting it!
2. Cream colored jersey sweater! I loveeee sweaters with hoodies, and I loveee 3/4 sleeves. :) The thought of a 3/4 sweater sounds a bit silly just because sweaters are supposed to keep you warm, but what about the rest of your arms? However, it sounds about right for the weather here, haha.
3. The bermuda skirt that Kayla also bought! You know what they say, great minds think alike! Rofl. Mine is in a black and white checkered pattern, as you can see. This pattern is so cute, and I love how it's got pockets to store my trinkets in... hehe.
4. Belted shorts in the same checkered pattern as the skirt, but this time in black and gray. Love love love 'em, and the material's so soft and comfy! But, dry clean only. >;(
5. Haha, okay I had to start taking the rest in my full-length mirror so you guys could see my bottoms. But here I have on a red plaid button-down shirt, which I absolutely adore. Lately I've been gravitating toward the color red, which is strange because I never really liked wearing red before. But I like the deeeep red, or darker reds, not the bright red-orange kinds of reds.
I also have on these adorable black leggings that are detailed with gold Guess buttons on the sides. I like these because they're thicker material than the other leggings I own, they stretch out a lot better and are more comfortable to wear, and the gold buttons add a nice little pinch of cuteness. :)
6. Ok, so I've been dying to have a pair of these "boyfriend" cut destroyed/worn/ripped denim jeans for forever! I've tried a pair at American Eagle Outfitters once and they fit so HUGE. They sell two other types of jeans at our store in this style, but they're made for tall tall tallllll tallllllller women. Which I am definitely not at 5'0". Hahaha. So when I found these cropped destroyed denims hiding in the transition section between the YC rooms 1 and 2 (is that how you say it? rofl), I just about died. They looked so cute, I HAD to have them! Aside from the fact that I have to roll them up 3 times and then scrunch them up my thighs so that the rip stays on my knee like it's supposed to, I LOVE these jeans. :))))))) They're a bit baggy and I have to fix/adjust them from time to time, but it's so worth it (especially for the price!). Inspired by some of the outfits I found in my Japanese fashion magazines, I shall wear them with heels. Hopefully my legs look longer that way!
7. So... these jeans are supposed to be cropped, right? Well when I roll them all the way down, they fit me like normal length pants. @__@! Curse my height! But I guess the plus side to this would be that I just found me a nice pair of double-function jeans lol =D. Woo! And I love this teal tee. Because it's a V-neck! And when I was stuck having to fold a heap of them from new shipment, I decided I had to buy one because I thought the design on it was so pretty! (and a lot better looking than some of the other shirts we have haha).
8. Blang blang flip flops! Hahah. I've been wanting some silver sandals for quite some time now, and these were cute, so I figured what the hey! These are size 6's so they're a tad long in the back for me. I usually wear a 5.5, but we don't carry half sizes at our store. :( It's okay though, because my feet are wide as hell, so they fit width-wise. :) AND ALSO! My new beautiful watch :)))). I love this watch, I love the black against the silver! And I know you probably can't tell from the picture but it's got a spec of bling at the top with a G and no numbers. (It's a G by Guess watch, btw.) It's super simple, but I loveeee. And I'm so happy that I now have a watch to look at the time so that I can stop missing my breaks! Hahaha. Seriously though. ;(

And finally...

Red muffler scarf! I've always wanted one of these, too. I'm surprised that Guess even sold them! Ohhh red. We'll see how long my attraction to the color will last...

Alright! So I'm not allowed to go shopping ever again. ESPECIALLY after Kayla's and my trip to Convoy earlier today! T___T Haha one blog update down, one more to go. I'll be backkk! Beach pictures and our "convoy haul" will be up soon. :)

Mini haul.

I say mini becaaaaause I only bought three items.

I LOVE where I work. I just don't like working hahhaa but that's everyone. Right?? So half a month ago I got to help do the new floor set for my work which meant I got to see all the new products we got in for Fall. I immediately fell in love with a lot of our merchandise BUT my broke ass can't afford it all :( But I bought my favorites :D

I don't know exactly what to call this but let's call it a sweater dress ($44.99). When I first saw it, hung, i thought it was a sweater vest but when I wore it, it clearly was longer than a vest haha. I put a random tank on so my outfit here isn't that cute. It'd be better if I had a dark long sleeve or I should've worn a brown tee.

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this skirt! From the first time I opened the box filled with these skirts to trying it on, I just about died! It's too cute! This one's a deep purple, but there's also a black skirt and a black and white checkered skirt. Guess calls these bermuda skirts($39.99). These are to be work right above the hips. It looked kinda funny at my waist. BTW the shirt is from Pac Sun. I was already wearing it so didn't feel like trying to find a better shirt. Turns out the two actually looks good together.
Guess has jumped on the band wagon! These are more of a Forever 21 feel to me. Usually I see this in red, but the turquoise is uber cute haha! This is elbow-sleeve plaid($39.99). It's more fitted than the normal ones everyone wears, which is Guess's signature style. I'd wear this with some jeans. FYI I'm wearing khaki shorts in the pic LOL don't copy THAT, I was lazy to change.

soon to come: ROSE's HAUL lmao

New Kicks.

If you want the best deals on heels, boots, sandals, shoes in general, I strongly recommend going to Ross. You're probably thinking, "ew, it's probably worn, torn and ugly." True, they do have some of those, but majority of the shoes are in new condition. I came back from Ross literally 30 minutes ago and the heels I bought are in fantastic condition. No sratches, not stretched out, and the bottoms aren't even dirty! I think they got 'em in today or something! Check these babies out:

I used a poster as a background cuz you couldn't see the color and heel HAHAHA

I was looking for some strappy heels, but I ended up getting calf-high boots and some mocasins with a heel! how awesome are those?! I went all giddy when I found the heeled mocasins! It's rare to see them and I feel lucky to stumble on a pair. I was about to give up too, but just at the end, the tassel caught my eye hahah. The boots are $19.99 and the mocasins are $14.99. The only downside to these two are that the brands I've never heard of (SBICCA & BC) so I don't know if they're durable. Don't worry you Ross virgins, there's Steve Madden, Guess, and Nine West to name a few.

I've bought booties at Ross before too and I'm just as satisfied:

Whoo! New shoes for school!! :D

Tanning Session.

We went to Oceanside beach with a couple of our co-workers, Nicole and Anastasia. Tanned, talked about work, and random topics while grubbed on chips :]

I must admit, Guess workers are pretty good looking LMAO

Emma Watson Grown Up.

Emma Watson has graced the Teen Vogue August 2009 cover. And might I add, looking gorgeous and so grown up. Teen Vogue has recently glorified Hermoine Granger, AKA Emma Watson, as the NUMBER ONE in best dressed. It's natural for girls to have absolutely no clue in what to wear and how to accessorize, but as we grow up all of us will learn to dress somewhat fashionable, and others will learn how to dress fashionable and she is the perfect example. I'm not saying I'm the epitome of fashionable, but I certainly am going to get there by working at Guess and I have crazy shopaholic friends. It's crazy to think this young lady used to be a tiny little girl. I'm so not used to her wearing fabulous heels and ridiculously pretty dresses. She's also the new face of Burberry! Oh how I envy her. If only I had money to spend of pretty clothes and accessories. Life would be better if I dressed better LOL
