Who doesn’t love the classic Christian Louboutin pump? Seriously, they are on every shoe lover’s list. But, that red sole will cost you! The Simple Nude Pump costs $595 at Barney’s New York. That makes it a ‘Bank Breaker.’ Wait until you check out the ‘Bargain’ pump.
The ‘Bargain’ pump is from Nine West. The almost identical Ambitious Pump can be found at Macy’s for $69. Compared to the Louboutins, that’s a deal! Would you rock the bargain pump?
My favorite designer changes with each season, as I constantly see my perspective on style and fashion change. Marc Jacobs is a consistent favorite and I love what the Rodarte sisters do, as well. However, right now, I am crushing on a local designer from Boston, Millie Bautista, who after seeing her clothing first hand, has converted me into an instant fan. She works with textures in a creative way to add interest to very basic pieces, such as a black sheath dress. I like designers who can make clothing look like art, but still feel like something you could wear with your friends out to brunch.
What is the one fashion accessory/item you can’t live without?
I love this simple silver ring from Bali that one of my students gave me as a Valentine’s Day Gift. I love accessories that have a story attached to it, as it makes it more interesting when someone asks you, “Where did you get that?”
If you were allowed to create a beauty product, what would it be and what would you name it?
Great Question! I’d make a hair product that made sure every girl with curly hair had perfect frizz-free curls everyday! I’d call it, “Amelia’s Miracle!”
If you only had 10 minutes to pack for a fashion extravaganza in your favorite city, what would you bring and where would it be?
A black dress with a scoop neck to reveal the sexy collar bone/neck, black tights to elongate the legs, black platform pumps, a cocktail ring, and Nars lipstick in Red Lizard in Paris, of course. Oh! And I’d bring along my iPod to play a pre-party music mix!
Do you live by a fashion philosophy or quote? What is it?
“Dress for where you wish you could be, not where you are going.” My mom has always taught me through her own style that fashion is not only about self-expression, but about telling a story. Usually, that story is based in some sort of fairy tale/dream.
We have a winner!! (The winner was randomly selected using random.org.)
And the winner is Martina! Congrats!!
Do you have wrinkles, enlarged pores, dryness, redness, discoloration, uneven skin tone, impurities, loss of firmness, loss of smoothness, and loss of radiance? (I don’t know about you, but I have a few of these!)
If you’re a Las Vegas lady or plan on being there this weekend, then you need to check out the Evolution of Curves Fashion Show Event and Fundraiser. It’s tomorrow, Saturday July 24th and tickets are only $25!! It looks like Faith 21 is one of the clothing lines that are going to be on hand. They even sent out this coupon (below) for 10% off any in-store or online purchase.
It’s no secret that I’m not a makeup guru when it comes to eye shadow. I always stare in amazement at my cousin’s makeup. She’s amazing and can create the perfect eye.
One day I will learn how to create the perfect eye! So, until then, I think I need to buy the Too Faced Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection. Seriously? Isn’t this delish? It even comes with a tutorial, for gals like me. I got an email from Sephora today and it’s selling this $73 value for $35! Need it now!
Do you want those beach tousled waves without going to the beach? This is one of my favorite hairstyles. It’s a simple style and it’s the classic “California Girl” look. There are even products out there specifically made for “beach waves.” Doesn’t Jessica Simpson look lovely?
Why does YouTube capture this image as the thumbnail? LOL Anyways, I said it’s short, but it’s about 10 minutes you’ll never get back! hahahahaha…wait should I be putting down my own video? Oh well, if you can’t laugh at yourself…well you know!
Most of us dream of carrying a hot designer bag on our arm. But, what if you can’t afford one? I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford those high priced beauties. I get out there and find a designer-inspired handbag. I found this gorgeous Lanvin Amalia bag, but it’s going to cost you $3,105.00 at Barney’s New York. Now, that’s a “Bank Breaker!” Scroll down to find out where the “Bargain” bag comes from.
The “Bargain” bag is the Audrey Leatherette bag from Forever 21 and costs a whopping $22.80. It’s definitely inspired by Lanvin’s design with it’s quilted look, front pocket, and its chain and ribbon wrapped handle.
I am super excited to announce that I will be attending the BlogHer 2010 Conference as a volunteer! This has made my year! Just to get the opportunity to see some of the faces behind all of these amazing blogs is an honor.
I am still trying to figure out the financial aspect of actually getting there, but if there is a will…there is a way. Right?
If any of you know of a company that would like to sponsor me or if you are a company that would like to sponsor me, please contact me.
I love when I come across a plus-size line that I’ve never heard of. Like today, I was browsing Bloomindales.com and I saw this really cute line named “Love Ady.” I know…I’m so late on these things sometimes. I fell head-over-heels, for these pieces. And they’re on sale here!
So, please spill the beans! I want to know more about this line-quality and fit please. I couldn’t find a web site or anything.
If there is one thing I love about shopping, it’s getting more bang for my buck. By this, I mean buying a lot of basics that I can rework into other outfits. I love this gray vest and simple black cotton dress. They can be worn with many different pieces that already exist in my bargainista wardrobe. You’ll probably be seeing a lot more of them. This entire outfit cost around $30. Yay bargains!! How many versatile pieces do you have in your closet?
Vest: Marshalls Dress: Ross Shoes: Target Necklace: Kohls
