Hi, marblelous babes! 💕 How was your weekend?? It’s finals week and I couldn’t be more excited because in four days, the fall semester will finally be over, YAY!! 🍾
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of being invited to a Holiday Preview Event at the The Shops at Montebello. The event started off with some seriously to die for pizzas from BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. I absolutely loved sitting down over lunch connecting with other marblelous local bloggers from the area!
We then got an extensive tour of the mall and had a chance to speak with many of the retailers. This mall is quite large compared to other malls and I absolutely love love love how extensive their store directory is! From H&M to Steve Madden, I was literally in shopping heaven!
My favorite part of the Holiday Preview Event was that I got to attend Cotton On’s grand opening! If you’ve never heard of Cotton On before, it is an affordable Australian-based fast-fashion clothing store. It’s comparable to Forever 21, H&M, and the likes.
Growing up as a teen in Malaysia, I pretty much shopped at Cotton On religiously, I kid you not. I must admit that half of my closet was filled with Cotton On’s trendy items. So I was SO stoked when I found out about their grand opening at The Shops at Montebello, especially since the store itself is HUGE!
The sales associates are some of THE MOST enthusiastic people I’ve ever met! It was so exciting to meet sales associates who truly love their job and are so willing to spread the joy and positivity throughout the store! I left Cotton On with some marblelous goodies, including this cute LBD number!
My LBD features cap sleeves and some drape detailing across the middle of the dress! It comes in black and grey, and is currently on sale for only $10! 🙌🏻 For reference, I’m wearing a size S.
Since it’s quite chilly outside, I decided to style the LBD with a tasseled sweater poncho. I’m absolutely OBSESSED with the color of this poncho – It reminds me of pumpkin spice! 😍 The tassel poncho is under $16 and comes in SO many different colors!
To keep my legs nice and toasty, I added some knee-high socks to add a little preppy “Blair Waldorf” factor to my outfit! I think Queen B will be proud of me! 🙈
Until next time, marblelous babes! 💕
