How To Wear the Gladiator Sandals Trend

Gladiator SandalsWith tall heeled gladiators, a simple outfit is best. Wear loose fitting shorts and a classic tank top, paired with a necklace. Add an animal print bag to make the outfit really pop.

Gladiator Sandals Outfit

This outfit is a perfect bohemian look. Wear a maxi skirt, crochet crop top, and studded gladiator sandals. For this look a simple cross body bag will go best! Top of the whole look with an arm cuff, the quintessential boho accessory.

Gladiator Sandals outfit idea

Last but definitely not least, the lace up gladiator sandal is probably the biggest variation of this trend this season. A cute white mini dress, statement necklace, and simple bag, will have you on trend for this spring and summer!

Personally, my favorite variation of this trend is the tall lace up Gladiator Sandal. The look of that style really makes me feel like I’m back in Ancient Greece rocking this trend the first time it appeared!!

Comment below and let me know what your favorite Gladiator Sandal style is, do you plan on wearing this trend?

Product Review: Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette

 

kat-von-d-eye-paletteThe Kat Von D brand has been around for a while but I actually just got hip to it not that long ago (slipping I know). I have the Kat Von D tattoo liner so I was super excited to try the Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Contour Palette when it was given to me by the good people at The Makeup Show.

The product is described as an eye contouring palette. The idea of “contouring your eyes” may sound a little strange, but it’s basically the same thing you probably already do with your eyeshadow. It just refers to adding depth to your eye by placing a darker color, usually on the crease and outer corner of your eye area. When it comes to my eyeshadow look I actually always put a darker color on my crease and outer corner of my eye because I find it makes my almond shaped eyes look bigger.

What to Wear for Easter 2015

Easter may not be a holiday famous for fashion, but it most definitely should be! It’s a time when spring has just arrived and summer is right around the corner. Holidays mean family and friend time, so why wouldn’t you want to look good? You gotta dress to impress this Easter for family, friends, and most importantly, the Easter bunny and with these outfit ideas, it’ll be easy breezy!

Starting off, I absolutely adore this color palette. The blue and orange go so well together and the nude handbag/shoes calm everything down. If it gets a little chilly, just put on a cute, light white cardigan.Easter Outfit 1If dresses aren’t really your thing, this second outfit is perfect for you! With a white loose blouse and a pop of color in the pants, people will be hop-hop-hopping over to ask you where you got this outfit from! The pastel pink and mint green go oh so well together and the brown wedges are just to die for! Easter Outfit 2

 

Hope everyone who celebrates has a great Easter and let us know in the comments if you have any go to Easter outfits!

xoxo,
Angela

NYC Shopping: E.L.F Cosmetics NYC Studio Haul

elf studio nyc

e.l.f has long been known for their affordable yet quality beauty products. For years their products were only available online but over time they made their way into physical stores through retailers like Target. Some time ago I heard about the opening of an e.l.f flagship store in NYC but honestly didn’t “jump” to go. I figured that since most of their products are already in Target, there was no need for me to make a separate trip to their store.

As life would have it, I ended up in the neighborhood with time to kill so I decided to check it out. Immediately I was pleasantly surprised. For one, there were soooo many products (much more than I expected), testers (amen for try before you buy) and helpful makeup artist giving advice (looking awesome in all elf products). To say I was elated would be an understatement. I somehow lost an hour of time in the store and picked up more products than I intended (I just came to window shop)!

I ended up buying the following products I’ve never used from elf:
-Blush Palette in Dark
-Complete Coverage Concealer in Dark
-Pressed Mineral Foundation in Dark
-Makeup Removal Pen in Clear

To be honest, I haven’t gotten around to throughly testing out my goodies from the haul, but as you know from my favorites post, I’m obsessed with the blush palette! I can’t wait to get around to using the other products more, fingers crossed they are just as bomb.

Must have Monday: Baggu Leather Tote

BAGGU leather tote

You know how sometimes you pass by a stranger wearing something so insanely perfect for YOU, you can’t help but stare? Living in New York City, where the average person dresses like the are walking on some invisible catwalk, this happens about a million times a day. More often than not the person is too far, the train is too crowded, etc for you to ask them where they got it from without coming off as a total “stranger danger”.

Recently I had an especially bad case of bag envy when I saw a girl on the train with the most buttery leather tote I’ve ever seen in my life. I couldn’t help but stare at the bag as it effortlessly added chicness and cool to this random girl’s life by it’s mere existence. I locked eyes (err umm “strap”?) with the bag the whole one stop till I had to get off and get to work. I wistfully thought about the bag on my walk and made a mental note to keep an eye out for something similar. Fast forward a few days later, I walked into Urban Outfitters and to my gleeful surprise I was tearfully reunited with this amazing beautiful bag.

It turns out this angelic bag is made by a company named “BAGGU“. I had never heard of it but according to Urban’s website it’s a “Brooklyn-based reusable bag company” that started in 2007 and specializes in making high-quality canvas and leather bags. The bags are also lead-free and ethically made, if you’re into that (and who wouldn’t be?)

After “visiting” this bag, three times last week, I’ve decided to go ahead and purchase it as a happy first of the month present to myself. And before you ask, yes, that is a thing… at least now it is 😉

Lusting like me? Check the bag in different colors below and click to purchase your favorite one.  You can also get this bag at Shopbop, Urban Outfitters, or the BAGGU site itself.
