MACY'S Passport Fashion Show - Los Angeles

Friend's birthday dinner tonight. Way excited.
stripe top, doll

The perfect pouffy skirt. Of course it had to be by Betsey Johnson. I love all things Betsey. Anything ultra girly and frivolous are pleasing to my eye.

Of course big bows. The more outrageous the bow, the better!

And aren't kiddie heart shaped sunglasses so much fun?

I'm wearing a black and white stripe top from Windsor, a black skirt by Betsey Johnson, shoes from River Island, random red sash, vintage black purse, heart sunglasses.


I'm really, really excited to tell you guys about a little project I'm involved with!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am helping to recruit a team of interns to help organize the
Macy's Passport Fashion Show
I'm looking for people to assemble a few hundred GIFT BAGS, setup, chairs, and escort guests to their seats WED-FRI next week.

I helped out last year, and I got to watch the runway show which was incredibly breathtaking and totally adrenaline pumping!!! I saw collections by Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, and Harajuku Lovers, to name a few.

This year we are going to need more volunteers for this fabulous event!! This is a charity fundraising extravaganza to benefit HIV/AIDS awareness and organizations.
Who: YOU (please email me to sign up)
When: anytime WED-FRI that you can come in
but in particular need help the NIGHT OF the benefit gala (Thurs) and FASHION SHOW (Fri)
Why: because it's sooooo sooooo much fun and free goodies & hors d'oeuvres

Wasn't this video amazing? Now imagine it 100x better! The experience of being there in person and feeling the energy of the models is beyond words.

Soooo please email me at to sign up! Let me know your availability next week, your tshirt size, and a good way to contact you whether it's by phone or email to send you instant updates. Email me with questions!


  1. Oh dear, you look too adorable!!
    There are so many things I love about this outfit, the poufy skirt, the big bow, the fishnet tights!! All of it:) I love everything ultra girlie too, oh and yes, the bigger the bow the better it is!!

    And so exciting to be organizing a fashion show, you amazed me girl!!

  2. One word I have to saw about this outfit:Perfection !

    I'm speechless becuase you really looked amazing here :)I WANT the skirt so so badly and because I too love Betsey Johnson <3

    The top was a great match with the skirt and bit big colorful bows are my weakness .

  33. Re:Ohhhhh,I realized i forgot to put where I got my gold buckle belt. It was from Mango few years back. Bought it with a shopping voucher.
    One of my fave belts that I have.

    Great idea to wear both necklaces together :)Ohhhh and I always love my pants rolled up :)

    Got my glasses at my mom's friend shop. Ohhhh,no its not a must to wear contacts all the time.
    But as for the job I'm doing and being at the front desk,it would be more presentable I wear contacts.
    Also,my glasses are oversized that I think adults won't like that its not presentable.
    I wear whatever I want to work ! No one would ever get to say what I wear. heeeee

    Its the first time for my friend and I. She's never gone overseas for studies before,so this is the 1st time ! Ahhhhh,I hope I don't cry later.

    Yup,I've been planning on a tattoo for very long.And I love body art :) Going to get it done end of this year <3

  34. oh of course,
    i can never keep my eyes off of betsey johnson.
    the look is most definitely always adorable.

  35. Love the look! The sunglasses are so cute!

  36. i love the soo girly-look!
    awesome outfit indeed!

  37. So cute! Don't you love how true Betsy stays to her aesthetic?

  38. Do you know that you are now on my inspiration board? This ensemble was too fabulous to ignore. I so need those tights and that skirt. And I wouldn't mind if you threw in the blouse, bow tie, shoes, and sunnies for good measure! :)

    If I were closer to Los Angeles, I would totally want to be an intern for the Macy's Passport Show - I'm in Southern California, but not close enough! :(

  39. I wish I looked good in pussybow type things, but I just look silly - they suit you!

  40. Looove the skirt and that big red bow is amazing!! Hope you're having a fantastic day :)
