Insta-fun: Russian Treats, Vintage Jewelry, & 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target

30 Sep

I just got back from a trip to NYC and New Jersey. My trip was family focused, so there wasn’t much time for shopping as usual. I did have a quick jaunt to the Goodwill and Russian Food store. I picked up a few items and posted photos via Instagram….or what I like to call Insta-fun = unexpected moments of fun. Enjoy!

SNEAK PEEK: Isabel Marant for H&M (Partial Lookbook for Men & Women)

24 Sep

Yes! Bring on my sleeping my bag. I will be camped out in front of H&M the night this collection launches, November 14th! I’m so serious. The Isabel Marant for H&M collaboration will be the shopping event of the year. Marant is one of my favorite designers with her effortless sophisticated style and relaxed look. I’ve dreamed of owning a pair of her lovely suede booties but my bank account can’t handle the $700 price tag. This will be my chance to own something designed by Marant at a lesser price point. Tell me you’re not SWOONING over these photos! Major double SWOON! Thank you to racked.com for sharing the photos!

Bootie Call: Jeffrey Campbell ‘Everwell & Everly’ Cutout Booties

21 Sep

One thing is for sure, ‘cutout’ booties are the must have footwear for fall! I’ve been digging this trend for awhile, ever since I caught glimpse of the Balenciaga Ankle strap boots, totally legit! The only thing I wasn’t digging was the $1000 price tag. I spotted these rad Jeffrey Campbell booties in Nordstrom and Bloomingdales. I thought about them for a month or so before I made them mine. Once I tried them on I was in love. They are super comfortable, edgy, and a bit feminine all wrapped up in the perfect little leather package. The cutout bootie trend is sure to carry over to next spring. Can’t wait to rock my new booties! Whoot Whoot!

Do you know these Designers? (Jimmy Kimmel Fashion Week 2013 – Lie Witness News)

17 Sep

I’m a fashion enthusiasts to the core! I know a ton about designers, what school they went to, their inspiration, their background, and design aesthetics. I pride myself off the fashion design knowledge I’ve acquired over the past 15 years. Even with my boastful declaration in that last sentence, I’m still very comfortable in declaring what I don’t know. Lying is never fashionable and its certainly not stylish. Check out these fashion-zealous individuals who felt it was more impressive to lie about their knowledge than come clean. It’s by far one of the funniest Jimmy Kimmel segments!

Naeem Khan Spring 2014

13 Sep

Two things come to mind when viewing Naeem Khan’s Spring 2014 Collection, Spain and yachts. One should only grace oneself in a Naeem Khan gown, if they’re laying out in the sun on the most luxurious and decadent yacht, sailing the Mediterranean Sea. His gowns are breathtaking! Naeem is brilliant at designing classically beautiful, intricate, and ornate garments. Hints of royal Spain are weaved throughout the fabric in his collection. The black, red, white color story brings the collection to life. Swoon!

The only thing standing in the way of me owning a Naeem Khan gown. Oh…..about $8500! Yep. His pretty little frocks will set me back several thousand dollars. So, unless Mr. Khan plans on establishing a lay-way plan in the near future, I won’t be owning one anytime soon. Boo. Double sad face.

Alexander Wang Pre-Spring 2014

11 Sep

Oh Alex! You continually woo me with your brilliant collections! Major swooning is happening right now! I’m so loving Alexander Wang’s Pre-Spring 2014 Collection. The color palette is perfection, black, white, charcoal grey, and pink. Yes! Wang is a genius at creating effortless and timeless collections with a modern appeal. I adore the pleated details that’s carried throughout the entire collection. There’s not a single piece in this collection that doesn’t make my heart skip a fashion beat. Starting with the pink pleated pants, they are everything! I must own a pair asap. The pleated black leather skirt is begging for me to rock it on my next date night. All I need to do is line up my next date and it’s on!

Mad About Plaid: CÉLINE Fall 2013

10 Sep

If you settle on one print this fall, make sure its plaid! Plaid will be taking over the streets of fashion come autumn. I’m loving the Céline Fall 2013 Collection. The colors are less vibrant and more muted, giving the classic print a modern look. This particular plaid print, is very reminiscent of the old-school nylon plaid shopper totes my Grandma use to carry her groceries in. Take a gander at these lovely photos below! Let them fill with plaid-spiration! Yes. I totally just created a new word. Get in to it!

The BEST ‘Boyfriend’ Jeans under $40 (H&M)

9 Sep

Truth be told, I would rather have a boyfriend than a pair of ‘boyfriend’ jeans. My path has yet to cross paths with my future hubby, so these awesome jeans will have to suffice. I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect pair of boyfriend jeans for over a year now. I wanted something a little baggy, in a fantastic wash, that didn’t break the bank. I spotted these denim beauties at H&M and knew they were exactly what I was looking for. They fit all of the above requirements and best of all only set me back $40!!!

Boyfriend jeans can be quite sexy. The trick is to pair a flirty and feminine blouse with your slouching comfy jeans. You can even rock a pair of stilettos to step your look up to vixen. Check out the jeans at H&M.com.…20% off!!!

**Fit Tip** Make sure you go up 1 full size. If you’re a size 8 go up to a 10. Going up a size makes the jeans drape that much better on your body.
