Drapey, Pinned and Trompe L'Oeil

Hey there dollface!  Happy Saturday!!  I wore this little number to work yesterday, and let me tell you this lightweigh sweater from H&M is quickly becoming a fave.  I'm only regretting not buying it in all other colors! I wore it with a pair of dark rinse curvy bootcut jeans, some oversized gold tone jewelry, and my amazing trompe l'oeil wedges from Aldo!  I wore my hair down for a relaxed vibe, but (GASP!) forgot to put in some Moroccan Oil!
Sweater: H&M (recently), Jeans: NY&Company (recently), Wedges: Aldo (recently), Bracelet: Forever 21 (a few months ago), Watch: Nixon (a few years old), Safety Pin Necklace: Jewelmint (recently)
What do you think of this look?  How cool are the shoes??  I love how from afar it looks like they have a heel, but they are wedges!!  Hee Hee!!

60s Mod Chic

Hey my dolls!  I wore this little number to work yesterday.  I picked up this frock for $15 at H&M while I was in FL and it screamed 60s mod to me.  So when I stumbled upon this vintage scarf in the same drawer as the shirt I found at my grandmother's (post here), I died because I knew I would wear it as a headband with the dress.  I wanted to temper the look a little bit to make it a tad more work friendly, so rather than heels (or my Michael Kors wedges, seen here)  I opted for my black Steve Madden oxfords.  I layered up three (!) Jewelmint necklaces, the Lovers' Locket, the Astoria necklace (short one) and the Pin Up necklace (ginormous safety pin).  I opted to forego earrings and stacked on a little arm party, featuring beauties from Target, Jewelmint, and my grandma.  As always, where would I be without my Nixon watch.  Sigh.  I really really need a nice Michael Kors watch.  Anyone want to donate one to a worthy cause? ;)

What do you think of this look?  I seriously love it.  It's my take on 60s mod, and I think I'll continue to wear this into the fall, layered over leggings with some boots.  And let's be real for a second, how amazing is the scarf?!

Handmade Vintage Family Love

Hey lovelies!  I've been away for awhile, and I've missed posting sooooo much!!  My grandmother recently passed away, and so I flew to FL to help my auntie out.  While we were going through drawers and drawers of old pictures and papers, I found this handmade vintage shirt, from the 60s or so.  One of my aunts made it!  I died.  This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen, and it fits so perfectly!  This post is pic heavy, I'm showing you how I wore it both Sunday (running errands) and Monday (to work).  

Shorts: Target; Sandals: Walmart; Necklace, Earrings: Forever 21; Bracelets (Wonder Woman Style!): H&M

Jeans: TJ Maxx; Platform Pumps: Qupid via Burlington Coat Factory; Satchel: Cynthia Rowley via Rue La La; Tassel: H&M; Earrings: Silpada; Necklace: Forever 21; Bracelets: A random and eclectic mix lol

So what do you think of this amazing shirt?!  Doesn't it scream boho chic?  I am obsessed.  And in love.

New Vlog! Urban Decay Makeup Haul!

Hello lovelies!!  Did you hit up Urban Decay's Friends and Family sale they had on their website last week?  25% off EVERYTHING!!  If not, sorry you missed out!  While I did not go overboard, I did get a few new things I'd love to share with you!

Also, let's discuss something.  Do you throw out all of your eyeshadows after 1 year?  I follow the 3 month rule with mascaras, but I can't seem to follow the 12 month rule with eyeshadows or lipsticks/lip glosses.  What do you think?  Help!!!

Real vs Steal...Featuring Chanel, Hermes and Belina!

Hiya lovelies!  I haven't done a real vs steal before, but when I spotted these doppelgangers, I got excited!

First up, everyone remembers the Chanel ombre fringe tassel earrings that we all (still) covet.
Well, let me introduce you to Belina's Justina.  At only $14, we'd all be a fool to not have these! 
Ahhhh Hermes' Collier de Chien cuff.  At around $1K, it's a gorgeous piece of craftmanship and a true status symbol adorning the wrists of countless celebs.
And now, Belina's Ignacia (shown here in brown, it also comes in royal blue!)   For under $22, you can have a near perfect replica!  And at this price, you can rock one on each wrist, wonder woman style!
What do you all think?  Would you rather splurge on the real deals?  Or save and stock up on the steals?
