Glass of Wine – $8.00

I attended wedding at the Biltmore Four Seasons Hotel in Santa Barbara this weekend.  While the wedding was not exactly budget, a day or weekend trip to Santa Barbara from L.A. is very reasonable.

I arrived at the wedding early so I had a glass of wine on the outside patio bar of the Biltmore.  While a night at the Biltmore is not exactly in my budget, I will definitely stop by the patio bar again on my next trip up there. Here are the pics.

Beret Forever 21 – $8.80

One of the trends that I am the most excited about for Fall 2008 is the beret.

I love wearing hats because they add an element of mystery to my everyday style. A trendy hat is also an inexpensive way to update my wardrobe for the season.
