LA's what?

Wow oh, wow! Another day. Another interesting email from my dear ol’ pal. This time, the email read, HAHA OMG! Front and center, baby!! Woooo!”
Again, I scrolled down to see what the fuss was all about and I saw this:

WHAT?!?! I couldn’t believe my eyes! Again, a bout of giggles hit me, I turned bright red and my jaw hit the floor. My oh, my. How did this actually happen?
Last week, I teased about winning this competition; but I didn’t honestly think I would be crowned! I mean seriously, I was pitted against some seriously gorgeous guys and gals. I am the winner? I am stunned. 
But to revel in the glory of it all, don’t mind if I pull a ‘lil Miss America - er, Miss Racked LA - on you. I’d like to say a few words…  
Thank you so much to all of you out there who supported & voted for me. I am beyond flattered that I was crowned Miss Racked LA Hottest Shopkeep 2011. This was all so unexpected and so shocking. I’d also like to say, thank you again to my dear admirer who anonymously nominated me and threw me into this contest. You are A.sweeT. heart.  I had no idea you liked me so much.
As for the rest of you reading? (Yeah, you.) Make sure you pop into the boutique and come ogle the goods. 
Focus, please. I am talking about the candy & clothes! They’re quite delicious.

We love Paper Crown

Paper Crown may love you (so says their twitter handle - @PaperCrownLuvsu) but I think we just may love them more!  
This weekend, Paper Crown - the line designed and inspired by style icon Lauren Conrad- is set to hit stores. And, guess what? A.sweeT. is going to be amongst the first boutiques to welcome the collection. Let me tell you, we couldn’t be more thrilled about it!

Paper Crown is a mix of playful, chic sophistication. Most of the silhouettes are simple and classic; but what makes us swoon are the unexpected details and the extra thought that was put into the design to make the pieces really pop. Check out the buttons, the details on the stitching, and how the whole collection is just so cohesive.
Paper Crown is a line that was not manufactured to just get something out there just to sell. This is a line that has been well thought out, that can easily transition through the trends and seasons in your life, and that just plain has heart.
Check out out some of our favorites for fall; and we will give you another sneak peek when Holiday nears. We are all already salivating over it. Napkin, please.

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Yesterday, I received a very interesting email. It was forwarded on to me from a pal who only wrote this, “haha omg!!!! amazing!!
After reading that exclamation, I then scrolled down a little further in the email, and I saw this: 

Whoa. I was shocked. I giggled. I blushed. And, then I thought to myself, “Wow. I honestly, have no idea how this happened! How did I get thrown in this amazing mix?” I pondered for a moment, and then I thought, “Hmm. Who knows? But I’d better WIN!” 
(What? Don’t judge. I’m a competitive girl. I can’t help that I have a little spice mixed in with the sugar and everything nice.)
In all honesty - win or lose - I am 100%, genuinely, super duper flattered to have been chosen at all. Thank you to whomever it was out there at Racked Los Angeles who threw me in the mix for the “Hottest Shopkeep” in Los Angeles! I am still blushing.
As for you, dear reader? You better go vote for me. I promise you A.sweeT. reward in return.

They Call Me Mellow Yellow

It’s summer and its time to shine as bright as the sun! So, whip out some color - keep it classy and brighten everyone’s day. 

Love me a bib necklace.
Honey, it’s the bag
