First of all, I want to say thank you for all the positive feedback I got from you guys last Friday on the announcement of the opening of my Etsy shop.  I'm super excited and nervous at the same time.  I know it's going to be a process to get it going, but I'm optimistic and hopeful that it will work out for me.  And I got a sale on Friday, so that's an exciting start! :)

This weekend I went to Las Vegas again for a friend's bday (those of you who follow me on Instagram @a_fashion_files got to see bits and pieces of my weekend).  We had a fun time drinking, eating, and I even managed to get to Topshop to pick up a few things.  I hope you all had a great weekend as well!

Please don't forget to enter my giveaway to Mont Affair!!  It's only open for a few more days and it's super easy to enter!!  I'm posting the rafflecopter at the bottom of this post to make it easier for you guys to enter! :)

  11. This time,I am loving your photography ! That grey wall fits the photo shoot perfectly. I love the fist photograph where the vastness of the grey wall is complimenting your outfit and your style- as if it is a still from a vintage movie of the 60s. Love your look, so chic , it reminds me of Grace Kelly. Your entire look is simply admirable, you are looking so graceful !
