Arizona arm candy, and some holiday photos!

This post will be short and sweet word-wise, so just sit back and relax and enjoy a few random photographs from my trip!

I'm going to start with showing you what I bought. I went on some sort of bracelet rampage at Phoenix Fashion week. There were tons of little stands where local designers showcased their merchandise and had it for sale, my friend and I had so much fun checking out all the items and here's what I ended up purchasing (followed by some photos from the event - we had tickets to the Saturday night show):

the first is by Alex & Ani (from Nordstrom), the red beaded one is from Nordstrom as well,
the last 2 were from one of the stands at the event - no brand name

all from a stand from the event aside from the thin white gold chain which I've had for ages :)

Now for some Phoenix fun:

one of the shows
my friend Andra and I before we headed out :)

out for brunch :)

some fantastic Eel rolls at RA Sushi in Tempe, AZ
casual dinner outfit:
jeans - 7 for all mankind
sweater - Trouve
tank - J Crew
bracelets - from above :)
belt - BCBG
flats - Prada
All in all it was a wonderful - albeit short - trip and I loved catching up with a good friend that I hadn't seen in ages. I was sick most of the time due to a pesky cold but I still managed to soak up all the beauty that the Phoenix/Scottsdale area had to offer and can't wait to go back (it was my 3rd time there, I'm sure there will be more).

Hope you had a great day,
