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!

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.

Grunge à la mode: Like a PUNK

4 Sep

I’m a Pacific Northwest chic at heart! I love fresh salmon, mountains and evergreen trees are comforting, I can correctly pronounce Snoqualmie, and sometimes I crave being in the rain. Yep. Seattle is in my DNA. I’m beyond pumped that the grunge-style (inspired by the 90’s Seattle music scene) is back on the map. When I was in the 6th grade, I was obsessed with all things plaid, leather, and doc martins. I lived in my doc martin shoes. Oh the memories!

This time around the grunge-style is bit more modern with fashion lovers pairing their plaid skirts, utilitarian jackets, and edgy studded heels. Its the perfect combination of feminine and punk. Hey you only live once. Are we still using ‘yolo’?

My Dream Boots: Chloé Susanna Ankle Boots

29 Aug

My boot obsession started when I was in the 6th grade. I remember my parents gifting me with a pair of black studded boots for Christmas. I loved them! I wore them almost everyday until the studs came off. These Chloé Susanna Ankle Boots make my heart skip a beat! The pale pink color is ultra girly and feminine, while the silver studs and buckles makes them edgy and tough. They’re the perfect combo, my dream boots indeed. The only problem is the hefty price tag. At $1375 a pair, I won’t be making them a reality anytime soon. Le sigh…..

SHOE LOVER: Brian Atwood Shoe Collection Fall 2013 -14

21 Jun

Be still my heart! I’m think I might be in love! Take a grander at the AH-mazing shoe collection for Brian Atwood! Mr. Atwood is known for using vibrant colors, unique details, and luxurious leathers. His brilliant designs have shoe lovers everywhere, clamoring to wear the ‘hottie tottie’ stilettos! I have dreams of owning a pair of my own, I just need to save up some more coins. Maybe I can persuade Snookums (my future hubby) to buy me a pair. Hmmm……

Mirror Mirror: H&M Sunglasses

5 May

“Because I’m addicted” would be a more appropriate title for this post. I’m obsessed. O-B-S-E-S-S-E-D! Obsessed, with mirror sunglasses. I generally spend waaaay too much money on designer sunglasses, only to have them break or lose them. This year I decided to go the less expensive route and pick up some lovely sunnies I spotted at H&M. I love them all, they’re similar in style but not in attitude. The total for my grand collection of sunnies – set me back only $35.00 for all five pair! Now that’s a deal! Check out your local H&M for the best selection on trendy and fun sunglasses for the summer. Which pair are your favorite?

Lady Sneakerhead: My ‘Nike Dunk Sky High’ Shoe Collection

10 Apr

I’ve developed a serious affinity for ‘Nike Dunk Sky High’ sneakers. The concealed wedge for height. The Nike comfort. The dope style. It’s the perfect sneaker that goes with just about everything in my closet. I love to be comfortable while looking fly, so these kicks are just what the fashion doctor order. I’m a ‘lady sneakerhead’ and proud of it!
