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.

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?

Want…Want…Want…

Why do these brands have to design and create such amazing pieces?

It’s like they are made for me and only me. Yes, that’s how I think when it comes to stuff I want. I know I shouldn’t “want” something so bad, but look at it!

I am drooling over the City Chic Urban Jungle Jean and Juicy Couture Cluster Cuff below. And you know I need that ‘Fashionista’ in a Frame necklace from ASOS. Gorgeous, right? Go ahead, you can lust after them too. It’s only right that you do.

Style Trend: Summer Scarves

Accessories are an essential piece to any outfit. One of my favorite accessories is the multi-use scarf. Love it in all materials! This week alone I bought 2 scarves! And as I was perusing my fave blogs, I came across a few outfit posts where they accessorized with a scarf. Yes, I know it’s summer, but you can still wear them! Just make sure to stay away from the heavy materials like 100% pure wool and cashmere. I tend to lean towards the silk, cotton, and linen. FYI…I want these!




I love thrifting scarves too! They are really inexpensive and can be used in so many different ways. Have you run out of ways to wear your favorite scarf? I found this cool article from Refinery 29 “4 New Ways to Wear a Scarf.” Click on the image for detailsl.

So, what do you think about accessorizing with a scarf this summer?

Juicy Couture Torture

Juicy Couture…what are you doing to me? Come on!! You can not continue to create such gorgeous pieces of jewelry and not expect me to fall in love. I mean…look at these vintage style beauties. Why or why must you torture me?

Topshop “Hangs” Out


Tassels, fringe, or strands? What would you call this jewelry trend? I tend to lean toward fringe.That’s the first word that comes to mind. Wait, does it really matter? Not really. What I do know is that Topshop is all over it! Are they ever going to open a store in Los Angeles? Hurry up already!!

Ouch! Bridesmaid Shoes Suck!

Guess what? I love weddings! Sad thing is, I haven’t been to one since mine…3 years ago! I was so honored to be a bridesmaid at my cousin’s garden wedding this past Saturday. It was a beautiful L.A. day and the bride was gorgeous! Love was beaming from their faces!! Oh, and for those who voiced their opinion on my hairstyle, I chose #6! There was only one thing that sucked? Our shoes! They are by Chinese Laundry and were made in satin. But, the style below is very similar.



I thought they were so cute too! But as I put them on, I wondered if the tiny (almost) 4-inch heels would hold this curvy chick up. They did, but not even 30 minutes after wearing them my feet started to hurt. Even during the ceremony I was having issues. My feet were slipping out of them. And for the past two days my calf muscles have been sore! I guess I’m not trained to wear (almost) 4-inch heels. That’s OK. But, if I had a choice, I would have chosen any of the ones below. I think these would make AMAZING bridesmaid shoes!!

Beach Chic on a Budget

I’ve definitely been craving a day at the beach. I just want to grab my favorite magazine and a book and just lounge! When I was packing for San Diego last week, I realized that my entire beach outfit cost less than $35! That’s swimsuit, sun hat, and flip flops.

Well, you must know I’m a budgeting master. And just because you’re on a budget doesn’t mean you can’t look chic on the beach, right? Well, the entire look I put together (below) was only $95.83! This is definitely a look that will carry you through the entire summer.

Feather Inspiration

It’s no secret that I love accessories. And when I go shopping, I have to check out what the latest jewelry trend is. The other day I went to the Grove, here in L.A., and couldn’t help but notice feather jewelry every where. Not peacock feathers, but bird feathers. I love that kind of post inspiration. Here you again my lovely bloggers…more inspiration and of course dumb ol’ shopping temptation. My apologies to your bank account.

P.S. Love that hat!!

RiRi & the Fanny Pack

Is Rihanna trying to bring back the fanny pack? This is the first thing that came to mind yesterday, as I was looking over my favorite celeb site Just Jared. Look at RiRi looking all cute eating M&M’s in Dublin, Ireland. She makes casual look chic!

I used to wear a fanny pack when I was little. They are really convenient and this D&G one is pretty hot. It say’s that it can even be worn as a cross-body bag. Hmmm??? RiRi is a fashionista and does wear pretty much whatever she wants. But do you think fellow fashionistas throughout the world will follow suit?

What are your thoughts on fanny packs…also known as waist or belt bags.

Alicia and Kryptonite

Radio 1's Big Weekend - Day 1


Radio 1's Big Weekend - Day 1

After seeing these pics of the gorgeous Alicia Keys, I started yearning for a hot pair of sunglasses. Not just any sunglasses, but a pair of square-ish shaped sunglasses. I don’t know what it is about me and this awesomely amazing accessory! This is the one item, that I don’t mind $pending money on. The pair of Coach sunglasses I have now are almost 3 years old. And they are still in great shape. I love them! I guess you can say that sunglasses are my kryptonite. Now, if only I can figure out what brand Alicia is wearing and I’ll be a happy camper. Oh…FYI…I want all of these pairs below!

What is the one thing you don’t mind spending money on?

Accessorizing with a Summer Hat

If there’s one thing I’ve figured out ,while writing this blog, it’s that I don’t wear enough hats. Hats are an accessory a lot of us might not think about when putting together a spring or summer look. Which is kind of funny, because in the early 1900′s it was considered disgraceful to walk outside of your home without a hat and a pair of gloves! Imagine?

Today, there are many different styles of hats. You might have even seen a lot of fashionistas out there wearing the straw panama or fedora hat. Cute, but I’m looking for a hat to wear to the beach this summer. In fact, I’d love to get my hands on a big floppy hat. I saw a few today that I’m considering. I can’t wait to hit the beach! Do you already have your summer hat?
