All that Glitters

Boyfriend Blazer: Target
Bracelet: Banana Republic
Tank, Skirt, Necklace: Forever 21
Shoes: Stuart Weitzman

I've wanted a sequined skirt for ages now, and this past weekend, I found the perfect black one for only $15 from Forever 21. Score. I'm the type of person that needs to wear all the clothes that I buy within the week, so I knew Thanksgiving dinner was the occasion for the skirt to make its debut. I decided on a monochromatic approach and let the sequins do the talking. The only downside was stuffing myself with turkey, mashed potatoes, ham, and pumpkin pie whilst wearing this outfit. Not the most comfortable experience, but we all have to make our sacrifices. Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!

Polyvore and Bloggers

I had the pleasure of going to a blogger meetup hosted by Polyvore at The Box in San Francisco on Thursday night. The food, ambiance, and people that I met made for the perfect evening. We heard from Jess Lee, the VP of Brand Marketing, about how the company started and the direction that it is headed towards. I also watched a mini demonstration on new Polyvore features and learned a few useful tricks and tips. Needless to say, I will definitely be incorporating more Polyvore into The Stylista Diaries. Special thank you to Polyvore for hosting the event, and to Jonathan Koshi for event pictures. I had a fabulous time!

Amazing food

Spotlight On: Maya Brenner Designs

I was at a sports bar in San Francisco rooting for the Giants when I saw someone with this California state necklace in gold. It was so simple, yet made a bold statement of "I'm proud to be a Californian!" I asked who the designer was, and quickly learned of LA jewelry designer Maya Brenner. Although these small necklaces are a little pricey ($250 for the 14k gold piece, and $120 for the silver ones), I love the idea of showing pride in your home state worn as a piece of jewelry. I think this will be one of my many presents to myself for the holiday season. To shop for more state necklaces or Maya Brenner jewelry, you can go directly to her website here!
