Not too long ago, H&M released it's most successful guest collaboration to date. The H&M x Alexander Wang collection was insanely popular. Everything was sold out within the first few minutes. Everyone was already waiting to purchase online that the site crashed before it's release time. I'm pretty happy that I got my hands on the crop top sweater that I was swooning over.

[Side note] It's totally not funny, but I thought it needed to be mentioned. There were several fights that broke out because people so desperately wanted pieces from this collection. It's really not that serious guys. If you didn't get it, too bad. Get over it. Definitely not worth hitting or getting hit over.

What I Wore: Top: H&M x Alexander Wang | Leggings: Trendy Blendy | Shoes: Shop Prima Donna | Sunnies: Ray Ban

Fashion Tip: Crop tops don't have to be worn alone. A white shirt underneath or collared top underneath crop tops go hand in hand. It's a great way to layer, as seen in my Refinery29 feature - seen HERE.

If anyone is looking for this sweater, I'm selling the extra one I have in the gray/size small. Brand new, tags still attached. I have it listed on eBay. If you're interested, you can email me directly (jo@lovefashionlivelife.com) or leave a comment here. :)

Before I sign off, I'd like to thank everyone for being a part of my blogging journey. It's been amazing. Thank you for making my dreams a reality. I was recently featured on People StyleWatch's You Got It Right section! I also just found out that it was also featured on a BILLBOARD IN NEW YORK CITY IN TIMES SQUARE!!!!! If you're in NYC, it'll be up until the end of the month. It's on the corner of 46th and 7th over the McDonalds and Express. (I'm the top left in the fur coat) YAY MEEEEE! lucky magazine contributor,fashion blogger,lovefashionlivelife,joann doan,style blogger,stylist,what i wore,my style,fashion diaries,outfit,hm x alexander wang,hm,alexander wang,crop top,scuba top,trendy blendy,shop prima donna,ray ban,fall fashion,street style

Take time to be thankful for everything that you have. You could also have more, but you could also have less. Today, tomorrow and always - be THANKFUL.

Photographer babe: Marilyn Nguyen (which is why there's no photos of her!!) But you can see her all over my INSTA :)

What I Wore: Skirt: Modern Bloom | Top: Fashion Young (looks like the For Love & Lemons top right?! See fashion tip below for more info) | Shoes: Lulus

Fashion Tip: Shop SMART is today's fashion tip. I found my $150+ For Love & Lemons look alike top at this wonderful hole-in-the-wall boutique called Fashion Young for only $26... yes $26!! For those of us, like myself that can't really spend that much on 1 top (especially since I already spent that on the WHITE VERSION), twenty-six bucks is the best steal you're ever going to find!

I had the best time hosting the pop-up shop along with blogger babes Vicky of Fashion by Vicky, Alyssa of Living In Style OC and Jamie of Bijou Minou. The MB girls and VB girls were fantastic and so wonderful to work with. The event meant so much more to me because the hubby wubby best friend boyfriend was able to come out to support me. My preggars sister made it to the event and so did all my girlfriends. I'm so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful people. Thank you for an amazing time. I can't wait for the next pop-up shop event! #champagnecampaign

Take time out of your day this week to remember what you're thankful for and remember that no matter how hard your day is, it could always be worse. Be happy and enjoy the little things in life. Thank you to all my readers and supporters. You're awesome blossom!!!

What I Wore: PJ's: Paul Frank

Fashion Tip: Today's tip. Everyone should have a girls night in to relax, hang out and get mani's. I totally recommend it.

A huge thanks to @IAMFASHIONLAINE and Red Light PR for throwing the best slumber party I've ever been to. The food was amazing and the photo booth set up was EPIC. I totally took advantage and photo banged it all night - OBVI. The cutest thing is that everyone was dressed in Paul Frank jammies. It was so soft and comfy and I can't wait to wear the onesie that came in my goody bag!!

Sometimes, you need to take a break, get your nails done and have a night in with your girls!

Happy Monday everyone! Who's ready for another work week!? I'm sure as hell not. But I know we'll get through it! We're getting cold weather here in Orange County (like 40 degrees at night) so I get to style my uber chic coats finally! I'm transitioning my summer Express skirt to a more winter look with a knitted top and the coziest camel coat.

What I Wore: Skirt: Express | Coat: Forever21 | Sunnies: Zero UV | Heels: Charles David | Bag: Balenciaga

Fashion Tip: Layering gets tricky, especially with coats because they're so bulky. Make sure everything is proportionate so your outfit doesn't look unbalanced. Example: If the coat is too short, your entire outfit would look a little off. If your inside top is too long it covers too much of the skirt and takes away from the midi. It's all about balance.

One of my favorite Fall items is a good coat. I'm so happy I found this camel colored coat at Forever 21! They have a great selection of coats so don't be so quick to write them off. They're still a great shopping option - for me anyways. Definitely invest in a couple cute coats for the season... a trench, a pea or a faux fur coat will be great to layer with this season.

Keep it classy, never trashy but just a lil bit nasty!
