When it comes to online shopping, I’m rather fanatical about where I spend my time and money. Not only do I look for a diverse selection of unique designers (why hello Beatrez, By Malene Birger and Ishii) but also a clean layout that is equally appealing. 25Park, a newly launched shopping mecca, has me completely covered. Their site is stocked with adorable jumpers, candy colored pumps and tissue-thin t’s, all of which are ideal for springtime weather. Here’s a roundup of some of my favorites and as an added bonus, if you enter the code “Cupcakes25” at checkout, you can enjoy 25% off any regular priced item in the entire store.
Since my birthday is this Sunday, I might have to treat myself to an early present (or two).

My closet is filled with neutral basics, which is why I’m the perfect candidate for a shot of color every once in a while. Whether it’s in the form of a florescent yellow clutch or some hot pink shoes, it’s sure to make a big impact (just skip the crimped hair and fanny pack).

Even though I live in Los Angeles, where jeans are the staple of almost everyone’s wardrobe, I rarely wear denim. This pair of 7′s is the one exception since I’ve had them since college and they’re unbelievably soft and versatile. I threw them on with a vintage blazer and one of my new shark tooth necklaces, which will be featured in my Etsy shop later this week.
As a person who hasn’t fully embraced denim, what’s your favorite line and/or style?
