I'm two days into my stay here in Los Angeles and I've been overwhelmed with the good food and shopping!  Our annual Peking duck lunch was amazing and I was able to check out another H&M store out in Pasadena in the afternoon.   I found a couple nice things, and while they weren't expensive, they also unfortunately were not on sale.  I'm definitely going to need to go on a shopping ban once the new years starts!  Not to mention a diet.  :)

As for my outfit, I wanted to wear a flower pin that the lovely Annie from Really Petite sent to me a few weeks ago.  (I've actually been meaning to wear them earlier but kept on forgetting!)  This black pin is absolutely gorgeous as it has a combination of satin and lace; it goes perfectly with the J. Crew chiffon placket cardigan.  I am also happy to report that the cardigan sleeves have stretched out a bit after having worn them previously for a day and are a great fit now!

I'll leave you with a few pictures from yesterday.  To start off, here is a picture of me and my cousins here on my mom's side of the family.  They're both younger than me and even with my standard 3" heels, they're still towering over me!

And a few pictures of our lunch:

Peking duck soup
Peking duck slices
Mu shu pork
Shrimp wrapped in fried vermicelli
Egg omelet over tofu
Roasted eel over fried rice
[UPDATE]: I'm being featured today on the beautiful Collette's Statements in Fashion blog!  Check out her Twitter Tuesday post!
