Bippity Boppity Boo! With a little bit of magic we have gone through another week. :) Happy Friday Everyone! As a big fan of  Disney and fairy tales, I was ecstatic when I found out one of my favorite designers, Lauren Conrad, did a collaboration with Disney's Cinderella movie for her Kohl's LC Lauren Conrad Collection. Lauren Conrad has a soft, adorable, yet timeless style so when I heard her collaboration with Disney's Cinderella movie, I knew it would be a dream. Indeed it was a dream come true and so much more! The whimsical collection consisted of a pastel color palette (baby pink, baby blue, white), tulle skirts, iconic symbols of Cinderella on t-shirts (castle, glass slipper, bippity boppity boo), and beautifully crafted dresses. I had to restrain myself from purchasing the whole collection. If you follow me on Instragram (@petiteolivia), you have already seen the two pieces I have bought. I had the chance to watch the Cinderella movie and I have to say Lauren Conrad really captured the essence of Cinderella. After watching the movie, I felt so inspired and drew up many ideas for my Cinderella shoot. The scenes such as the secret garden and Cinderella running away from the prince through the garden full of luscious green bushes gave me an idea for the shoot location. I thought the blue color of her dress was so vibrant and stood out from the greenery in the scenes. I grasped in some scenes Cinderella was wearing ribbons in her, so I incorporated that little detail in the look as well. I kept the look dreamy and soft with an off shoulder chiffon top. My version of sparkles and pixie dust in this look would be the accessories. Hurry and hop into your carriage before the all the pieces are sold out! Have a great weekend! I leave you with the words of Cinderella, "Have courage and be kind."

Happy St.Patty's Day Everyone! Over the years, I grew accustomed to wearing something green on St.Patrick's Day to avoid getting pinched. Regardless, I always enjoy getting in the spirit and celebrating holidays because it always give me an excuse to go that extra mile in dressing up! If you are not particularly fond of green, I recommend to pick a hue of green and even possibly try a monochromatic look! There are so many hues of green to choose from mint to dark forest green!
A few months ago, I spotted this darling Kelly Green dress and immediately thought it would be perfect for St. Patrick's Day. Everything about this dress really sold to me-the fit, shape, color, pockets, and the cut outs in the back. One thing I really LOVE is when a dress has pockets! Am I right ladies? Sometimes, I don't want to bring my bag so I found the pockets to be extremely convenient and also the cut outs in the back added a nice surprise to the dress. I paired the dress with black and gold colored accessories to resemble a pot of gold. Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a pinch proof day! Have a wonderful rest of the week and I will talk to you soon! :)

Happy Monday Everyone! To embrace my Chinese heritage, I want to wish everyone Happy Lunar New Year or in my culture we say Gung Hay Fat Choy (恭喜发财)! :) This holiday, is extremely close to my heart because it always reminds me the warmth of home, family and the delicious feast my dad prepares during this time. In honor or the Lunar New Year, I did a pairing for red and gold. Red is mainly worn throughout this holiday because it is believed that red will ward away the evil spirits and bad fortune. In addition, since the New Year signifies new beginnings new clothing is particularly worn on this day. With a new vibrant red romper I currently purchased that I am currently obsessed with, I transformed it into a top by simply tucking it into a metallic gold pleated skirt. Clever idea right? I love challenging myself to re-style certain items in multiple ways. It is like piecing together a puzzle to create a beautiful picture! I finished the rest of the look with gold accented baubles. Thank you for reading and I will talk to you soon! May the year of the Goat/Sheep bring you happiness, good fortune, and prosperity!

Happy Friday Everyone! Last year's Valentine's day look (Blush Amour), I chose a more romantic and fantasy scenario with soft colors. This year's Valentine's day look, I opted for a more bold, cute and quirky look that you can possibly wear for dinner with friends or someone you love. I am pretty excited for today's post because I have had this red lip tulle skirt stocked up in my closet for the longest time and I thought it is about time to bring it out and incorporate it into this year's Valentine's day post. To keep things bold with a hint of sexiness, I chose a red top with back cut outs. I chose my favorite wing clutch for this outfit because it reminded me of cupid's wings which then reminded me of Valentine's Day. I wanted to complete the look with dainty, simple, gold accessories such as the "Je T'aime" necklace layered with my gold jewel necklace. I brought in some beautiful roses and lip props to have a little fun and play up the look. :) I hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day weekend regardless how you spend it! Thank you for reading and I will talk to you soon!

Happy Friday Everyone! This past weekend, I went on a mini getaway to Malibu. My inspiration behind this ensemble was the clean and polished Hampton's style. For the occasion, I re-styled a few of my favorite easy, breezy pieces. I kept the color palette clean and soft with the pale blue and the white. To add a burst of color, I paired the look with a yellow jacket. I hope you have a great weekend and I will talk to you soon!
