I love the outfits that other people think up that I could never in a million years put together. A striped tank with a pleated skirt? With oxfords and aviators? Huh? I’m puzzled by this combination, which makes me absolutely LOVE it. She looks so chic! I wish I was that cool! Wonder if we’d be able to pull off such an ensemble…girl can try, right?
Take a try with some of these options (Not gonna lie, it was hard to find such a great skirt, for less):

This eye-catching and stylish trend is the perfect way to transition from summer to fall! We’re seeing the perforations in everything from boots, sandals, flats, earrings, handbags…the list goes on. It’s a definite playful, yet edgy twist on these items; something that is sure to be a head turner.
What do you think of this trend? Which item do you like best? I’m obsessed with the gray boots from Nine West!

I, like mostly every girl out there, have that one black cotton dress that is the perfect throw on for the days you just can’t get it together in the morning. I have paired this dress with a vest, long necklaces, short necklaces, flat sandals, high heels…the list goes on. This dress can easily be dressed up or down and be worn for work or play. You know the one I’m talking about! I’m not sure what happened, but I cannot seem to find mine. I’ve looked through the racks and racks of dresses I own and it is no where to be found. I get so sad when this happens and now I’m on the hunt for a replacement (if that is possible).
Help me choose one! Here’s what I’ve got my eye on…will they measure up? How much would you pay for a new little black dress?

I love how it’s so easy in the summer to throw on a comfy dress and some flip flops and look totally relaxed and put together. I’ve been gathering quite the collection of the perfect summer dresses, all for extremely reasonable prices, take a look…these options come straight from my very own closet!

It’s times like these that I really wish I was of model stature. I love the gladiator sandals and I am especially loving the ones with the ankle strap. I finally tried on a pair this weekend and I was so disappointed. These shoes are NOT made for someone who is 5’1”. I obviously should have known better. They literally cut my entire body in half!! How do you keep up on the latest sandal trend when they just don’t do anything for you? Anyone else struggle with this? I’ll just have to live vicariously through the tall people out there…
If you’re short like me…stick to options like these!
They still have the ankle strap but it rests lower on your ankle which makes them more flattering to those of us who don’t have the height.

I am a self-proclaimed “bargain shopper.” Everything I buy is either on sale or extremely cheap to begin with. I pride myself on my ability to find the new “IT” shoes at a fraction of the designer price, but every gal has got to splurge once in a while. What do you splurge on? Shoes? Jeans? Beauty products? Handbags? Why do you splurge on this product and not others?
This was my latest splurge and boyyy was it worth it!!! I’m in love!
