Faux Fur? Yes or No?

Do you wear faux/fake fur? Faux fur is made from synthetic materials and not our furry friends. I’ve never worn the real stuff and I think I have one puffy vest with a faux fur trimmed hood. But that’s it. Even Chanel has gotten in on the faux fur trend for fall/winter. I’ve kind of had my eye on boots with the faux fur trim, but that’s still debatable because it doesn’t get that cold in L.A. What do you think?

Are you a faux fur kind of girl?


Bargainista Finds: Knits Under $10

You’ve heard it a million times…yes, fall is right around the corner. But, what a better time than now to get those sweaters and cardigans under $10! I think this is one of my favorite bargainista finds for the upcoming season. Hurry up, before they sell out! (P.S. if you click on an item and it doesn’t come up, that means it’s sold out)

OOTD: Getting Grecian

I hope you’re enjoying your Labor Day weekend! I know I am. I had an amazing Saturday. We hung out with family and friends. I finally wore this gorgeous ASOS CURVE Draped Grecian Slinky Top (out of stock). I don’t know why I waited so long to wear it. It may just be my new favorite ASOS piece. It draped beautifully and I got a ton of compliments on it all night. You know I love that. LOL.

Of course I wore my favorite Lane Bryant Knit Denim Jeggings ($59.50) and my super awesome Mossimo wedges from Target that were a mega discount. I think the jeggings toned down the top, which could come off really dressy. I added my Forever 21 jewelry which included my favorite chunky chain necklace and a pair of stud earrings. Loved this outfit!

I’m in Shoe Heaven…

Like Rachel Zoe would say…”I die!”

Seriously, I’m in shoe heaven. I am speechless. All I know is that I WANT these Christian Louboutin brown suede platform pumps. The End.

OOTD: Torrid Review III

When it comes to stripes, I’m not the world’s biggest fan. I think I might own two pieces of clothing with a striped design. So, when Torrid sent me this dress, I wasn’t sure I would like it. Once, again I really need to stop being so fatshion judgemental. Today, I wore the Navy Striped Belted 2-Fer Dress ($58.00) courtesy of Torrid, and I will no longer disapprove of stripes again.

When you first touch this dress, you can’t help but love the material; it is very soft. The navy and heather gray go so well together. These are two separate pieces, but they are attached at the shoulder area. And there is a black faux belt attached at the waist. I was worried it would ride up on me or the dress would fly open in the front, but it did neither of those things.

I was also amazed at how comfy and cool I was in this dress. We had a warm day today, and I wasn’t bothered at all. I think it could be really easy to dress this down with a pair of cute sandals as well. I think the thing I liked about this dress the most was the compliment I got while I was out and about. Thanks sales associate at Staples! Btw…the shoes are by Madden Girl.

Jewelery Takes Shape


I couldn’t help but notice the recent trend of geometric shaped jewelry. It’s a style anyone can wear and it could liven up the most toned down outfit, if you’d let it. I love the clean lines and simplicity of it all. Personally, I’d really like the Marc By Marc Jacobs bracelets. Just sayin’.

What do you think? Would you wear any of these pieces?

Style & Designer: Michael Kors

If you asked me to choose my favorite designer for clothes, accessories, and shoes; I would have to give it to this genius-Michael Kors. I am in LOVE with almost everything he designs.

His creations are modern, yet very chic. Nothing is an overstatement. Just the way I like it. And you know his pieces will carry from season to season.

Kors began his fashion career at 19 and has not looked back! He not only designs woman’s fashion, accessories, and shoes- he also has his own fragrance line. In case you’re wondering Macy’s carries his plus-size pieces. And yes, I love him on Project Runway. He’s so brutally honest.

Beauty Buzz: Are You all Set?

When it comes to buying cosmetics, I’m all about the easiest and less expensive purchasing methods. That’s why I love the idea of buying your makeup in a set. Most of the time it works out better. And if you need help choosing shades and tools, it’s already done for you. You know what’s even better? Sometimes you get a free gift with purchase. Wow, this sounds great for someone like me.

What do you think? Are cosmetic sets the way to go?


Chloe is Divine

If you know me, then you know I love designer sunglasses. I don’t know why I would spend so much on a small piece of plastic. Oh wait, I know…design and quality. Sunglasses and handbags is where I allow myself to splurge, if I have the cash. I would gladly take these Chloe sunglasses any day of the week. And just because summer is coming to an end doesn’t mean we stop thinking about sunglasses. Eye protection is year round baby! Why not make it fabulous eye protection?

Fall Trends 2010: The ‘Moto’ Jacket

Bring out the bad girl this fall! Grab your leather or faux leather motorcycle jacket! I know some of you are animal friendly, besides faux leather is a lot more inexpensive. Does that still make you a bad girl? Sure! At least you’ll be a HOT looking bad girl!

OK, enough with the bad girl talk, because I really want a motorcycle (A.K.A. a “moto”) jacket. I imagine it as an essential piece to any wardrobe, kind of like a black blazer. It can be worn so many ways, with so many different pieces. That’s what it’s all about right? Getting more bang for your buck. I think I might just head over to Forever 21 tomorrow.

Which one is your favorite?
