Best Pre Black Friday Deals 2015

Best Black Friday Deals

Just like the holidays seem to come earlier each year, so do Black Friday deals. More and more retailers are opting to start their Black Friday Deals online and before “friday” to cut down on some of the instore craziness (and boredom of siting around while waiting for the food to be done on Thanksgiving. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, then you know Shopbop is one of my favorite online retailers (my whole outfit in the picture above is from there lol!) so you know I’ll be shopping that sale for sure. In addition to Shopbop, other retailers like Asos and Macy’s are also starting the black friday deals early as well. Here’s a list of some of my favorite retailers having pre black friday sales going on now!  (more…)

22 Must Have on Trend Jackets and Coats

What Coat to Wear

As a southern born girl I hate the cold but love the fall and winter accessories. Living in New York City the past few years I’ve learned the value of a good coat! Having both style and functionality is KEY. You want something that will keep you warm in the various parts of Fall and Winter (light jacket, medium jacket, and walking sleeping bag jacket is how I like to think of it). But since your outfit is covered up by a coat most of the day, you also want it to be cute! No matter where you live, you’ll probably end up wearing a coat for at least a little bit during the year, so it might as well be something you love. This year the leather moto jacket was a super big trend (I myself went out and bought this leather jacket  from Shopbop during their last sale). In addition to the leather jacket, bombers, trench, oversized, and even blazers were also popular. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite in each style to share with you. Keep reading to see my picks for this season’s jacket trends!


Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Review


Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Review

Product: Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation

To be honest, I only recently heard about Hourglass cosmetics within the last year or so. I was curious about the brand so when I got the opportunity to receive a few of their products for review consideration I was really excited. I was sent the Immaculate liquid powder mattifying oil free foundation (try saying that name three times fast). As the name suggests, this foundation is designed to work as a mattifying foundation with a “liquid to powder” finish (wish I knew about this product during the summer!!). It comes in a slender tube container with a pump applicator top (yass!! three snaps for a pump!!). I was given the two darkest shades which are “sable” and “chestnut.” Immediately I could tell sable was too light and chestnut just BARELY fit my complexion (I added a little bronzer to the outter edge of my face to help it blend).


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.

Save or Splurge: Moschino Moto Style Leather Booties

Save or Splurge Moshino Leather Booties

So I’m all about a good deal, but sometimes it’s worth it to pay a little extra for the real thing. When it comes to accessories I’m more willing to splurge if it’s an investment piece I can see myself wearing for a long time. For more trendier items, I would rather save because I know that I’m only going to wear them for a season or so before I donate them. Recently I shared my favorite ankle booties for Fall and one of the boots on this list was the leather buckle booties from Moschino. To me these boots are like the shoe version of the super trendy moto jacket. Just like I love my moto jacket, I looovvee these shoes. I found a similar pair from Guess for a fraction of the price. So, would I save or splurge on this look? At the end of the day, between the two I would pick (more…)
