How to Mix High and Low End Fashion

 

over the knee boots

If you’ve been reading my blog for a while then you know my style is what I like to call “Fancy Frugal”. I like to mix high end fashion with lower end fashion deals to give an overall “fancy” look for a fraction of the price. Recently I got the opportunity to team up with JCPenney to check out some of their new Fall fashion. I was pleasantly surprised to find so many on-trend Fall pieces at a really good price.

How to Wear the Sleeveless Coat Trend

How to wear long vest

How to wear Sleeveless coat

I’ve been wanting to try out the sleeveless coat/ long vest trend for months and finally got the opportunity to do so! Although it’s almost January, the weather this winter has been so mild, I’ve had the chance to wear mine a few times already and I plan to keep wearing this trend into the spring.

The key to wearing this trend in my opinion is to pair it with something a little more streamline (so no big flared skirts or dresses). Personally I would stick to wearing either jeans or leggings with this trend as that seems to look the best!

I think the exact one I got is sold out now but here are a few other ones that are equally as cute (and affordable) from Boohoo.com:

Boutique Ava Sleeveless Mac Trench Coat • $37
Lara Sleeveless Duster Coat • $16
Camila Sleeveless Fluid Trench • $16
Megan Sleeveless Camel Coat • $42
Amy Waterfall Sleeveless Coat • $26
Charlie Sleeveless Waterfall Duster Coat • $18
Lara Waterfall Sleeveless Coat • $28
Olivia Waterfall Belted Sleeveless Coat • $22
Joanna Ponte Sleeveless Jacket • $22

Comment below and let me know if you plan on trying this trend or if you have already?! How do you like to style them?

How I Style Over the Knee Boots

Style Over the Knee Boots

Details: Olive Dress | Dolce Vita Over the Knee Boots | Black Hat | Necklace

I’ve been really into wearing over the knee boots (or OTK for short) since last winter. I got these brown leather Dolce Vita boots from Shopbop last year (they’re sold out now but you can still get them on sale here).  In the past I always styled my OTK boots with leggings or jeans, but I recently got into wearing them with dresses. The dress I wore here is from Necessary Clothing (btw if you like it you should get it now because it’s almost sold out!) . The dress has a mock neck top and a curved hemline that ends with two slits on the side. It is made to fit really snug and show off all your curves. I decided to size up in order to have it slightly less “painted on” looking lol.

4 Tips for Gorgeous Cheekbones

 There are all sorts of features that women want to stand out on their face or body. Some want people to be drawn to their eyes, while others are proud of their hair.

If you want to make your own cheeks stand out, I’ve got some great tips to highlight them. There are several solutions you can choose, from using blush all the way up to cosmetic surgery. (more…)

How To Grow Long Lashes Naturally

How-to-get-fuller-eyelashes

I’m not going to lie, lately I’ve been getting more into wearing natural looking false lashes (I blame the Kardashians for making me covet whatever brand they wear). Between falsies, eyelash extensions, and really good mascara — there are millions of ways to fake long luscious lashes. But nothing beats having real long full lashes. No matter how great I get at applying false lashes, I’ll never be ok with letting my real lashes get in bad shape. Even if you weren’t born with long lashes naturally, there are things you can do to help your lashes grow to their fullest potential.

HOW TO APPLY BLUSH 3 WAYS

How to Apply BlushI’ll be honest, if I’m not wearing blush I feel pretty basic. I can’t stand to see the sight of me with makeup on without blush, it somehow just seems wrong to me. While there is no one right way to apply blush, there certainly are several wrong ways to do it. I’ll never forget back in high school when a friend saw me after applying my blush and told me that I looked like a “red brick.” The statement was a bit rude but the message was clear: what ever I was doing with my blush was not working. After that I stayed away from blush until I learned how to properly apply it.

Blush is something that I think a lot of woman shy away from because it seems difficult or unnecessary, both of which couldn’t be further from the truth. Keep reading to see a tips and tricks on how to apply blush, trust me, it will take your face to a whole new level.
