Perfect Pairing: Black Leather & White Eyelet




Jacket: Zara (old, similar here)  /  Dress: Old Navy  /  Shoes: DSW  /  Clutch: Clare Vivier  /  Bracelets: Vintage

Oh, how I’ve missed you!  It is soooo good to be posting again!  I lost my regular photographer due to “creative differences” and life in general just got in the way.  Damn you life!!! Don’t you know I have a blog to attend to instead of paying some measly bills???  Anywho, first thing is first, I’m so appreciative of my lovely mum for not only taking these pictures, but for also letting me borrow (indefinitely, I hope) her amazing silver and turquoise jewels.  She has some really great pieces from her hippie days when she lived in Colorado.  What better way to pair hippie jewels than with a white hippie dress, right?  This dress from Old Navy was exactly what I was looking for.  The scalloped hemline is nicely done and the bodice has a pretty design too, plus you just can’t beat the price (scored mine for under 20 bucks).  One of my absolute favorite pairings is a soft, flow-y dress with a leather jacket, so of course I had to bust mine out.  See some of my inspiration from pinterest below.  Hope you enjoy!!!

P.S. Thank you for all the support and for stopping by!!! XXOO

Vampire Diaries



Jacket: Zara  /  Shirt: Gap  /  Jeans: J.Crew  /  Shoes: Guess (similar here)  /  Necklace: Ann Taylor (similar here)  /  Sunnies: c/o Firmoo   (similar here)

I’m starting to feel like a vampire.  I haven’t seen the sun in days, just rain and clouds and more rain.  ‘What’s with the sunny pictures then?” you ask.  Well, these were taken decades ago (a week and a half to be exact).  Now that I have crawled out of my coffin, I finally decided to post them.  It’s a good thing Firmoo sent me these sunglasses.  I will be needing them if and when the sun should ever appear again.  Not sure my little eyeballs could adjust to the sun’s rays.  Thank you Firmoo! A creature of the night, I mean, a girl can never have too many pairs of sunglasses (or too many pairs of anything, honestly).

HOT DEAL:  Firmoo offers a FREE pair of glasses for first-time customers (selected pairs only & you must pay shipping)!  They have a huge selection and you can even upload your own image to try on different styles.  FYI, turn regular glasses into sunnies by tinting them 80%.  

Pattern Play

Every once in awhile, a “magical” article of clothing will appear before my eyes and make me want to spend full price just to have it in my possession asap.  Congratulations Ann Taylor, you and your perfectly patterned paisley skirt did it.  I am officially obsessed with this print and cannot wait to style this all sorts of ways.   Luckily, you sent me a coupon baiting me to spend more than I wanted to in order to receive a dollar amount off my total.  Funny how marketing works, isn’t it?  I did find a gorgeous pair of tan leather boots there on mega sale.  I think this was a personal best in sale shopping; originally $328, but scored them for just $20 dollars.  Thank you, thank you! I feel the congratulatory pats:)  I guess my little shopping excursion was worth it.  Like my friend Al says “I wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t good!”
