Girls Night Out Outfit Idea

I bought a few things recently that would be PERFECT for a girl’s night out~~

Out of this entire outfit, my two favorite items were the Report booties (which I wear ALL THE TIME) and the Vegan Leather Blazer.  The way the blazer is cut is incredibly flattering and really slims your midsection!  This runs a little small, so if you’re in between sizes, make sure to order up.

New Year’s Eve Outfit Idea #1

I just got this in from Piperlime and I’m obsessed with this gold dress!!  Not only is it incredibly comfortable/stretchy, but the gold really pops out!

I’m thinking I could pair this with hot pink lipstick and some romantic hair? =)

Paired the dress with a beaded black necklace (can’t remember where I got it), black BCBG clutch, bebe heels.

Dress (click here).  It’s on sale right now!!  I totally bought it before then (boo) but at least you can get it for a discount now!

Piperlime Jewelry Wishlist/Lusts

I am…to put it mildly…OBSESSED with Piperlime.  I am such a huge online shopping addict.  It’s sad really…I NEVER go to the malls anymore which would probably be a more useful and productive way to spend my time (burn calories and only buy what looks good).

ANYWAYY…here are a few pieces that I’m seriously lusting after this Winter!

Favorite Online Shopping Sites

Who DOESN’T love online browsing for clothes, accessories, shoes, purses…household goods??

1. Amazon

https://i2.wp.com/www.savingadvice.com/articles/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/amazon.com-logo.jpg

I have Amazon prime and probably buy something from this site no less than 1x per week.  This site is seriously the most incredible .com site EVER.  You can buy groceries, books, household goods, craft supplies, clothes, shoes, makeup…EVERYTHING.  I swear someday they’ll sell lumbar and delivery it within 2 days.  If I could only shop on one site for the rest of my life, Amazon would be it.  As an Amazon Prime member, I get free 2-day shipping and it’s just SO EASY to get stuff in a flash.  Shopping in LA is so hard with traffic/parking that I rely heavily on prime shipping.  My coworkers say that as Mom’s, they buy all their baby stuff through Amazon so that they don’t have to go to a store with a screaming baby (just the hassle of traveling with the baby is avoided).  AND returns are really easy!

2. Piperlime

https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQd22Zvm6OqfBGASBSb0h4Gc5xK_l1bB4WkgwsqwUEAkwEqxsKy3A

My go-to site for all clothes, shoes, jewelry, purses, etc.  I even go here for GIFTS!  It’s just so easy to order from there because I completely TRUST the brand, the items sold on the site AND you can return it for free.  I have a banana republic luxe card and I get free shipping on all the orders as well.  Shopping with Piperlime/Gap/Banana Republic/Old Navy/Athletica is SO easy.  Plus, shipping is FAST.

3. ASOS

https://i1.wp.com/d1n0t8embjb5t8.cloudfront.net/wp/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/asos_logo.jpg

Asos is a site that I go to for everything I can’t find on #1 and #2.  Shipping and Returns are fast and free.  There are THOUSANDS of products on this site and everything is incredibly trendy and fair priced.  I don’t trust everything on this site the way I trust Piperlime, but I’m never afraid to order since I can easily return what I don’t like.

If you’re not used to shopping online or are afraid of it~ start with these three sites!  They really make the buying/returning experience easy and each company comes with really superb customer service if you need help. =)

xoxoxo  Happy Holiday Shopping!

 

Statement Earrings

In my early 20s, I was ALL ABOUT the loud, flashy earrings.  I mean the bigger and more obnoxious the better.  I liked my hair big, makeup bright, and earrings the size of saucers.  As a late 20s (almost 30) gal, I’ve started to wear more flashy studs.  I dress up casual outfits for work with statement studs or pair a LBD with big earrings.  I’ve found that fancy studs are WAY more versatile.  Plus, since they’re not as obvious, you can wear them more often that flashy dangling earrings.

Here are three I ordered from Piperlime.  Unfortunately, I only liked the Sabine earrings.  The others just weren’t as cute in person as they were online.  Or at least they didn’t look good on me.  The Banana Earrings were TOO unique, which meant that I couldn’t get a lot of wear out of them, and the Tinley Road earrings were gorgeous but a little too mature for me.

Statement Neckalces for Fall 2013/Winter 2014

Got these two Necklaces from Piperlime and they were super gorg. One is from Tinley Road and I believe the second is from Pim + Larkin.

LOVED both of them and found that they matched everything in my closet.  I could wear it with a collard shirt & crew neck sweater or with a cocktail dress.  I wore the necklace on the left in Vegas this past weekend and I can already tell these beauties will be staples in my closet this fall/winter!

DV SHOES: GEO

Bought these GEO shoes by DV and I LOVE THEM.  They are super comfy, stylish and perfect for summer (or all year round in LA =P )

My feet are wide and these shoes make them look a little long (b/c of the pointed toe) but somehow it all balances out in these shoes.  Haven’t worn them outside yet b/c LA has been having colder boot weather.  =)

But I hope to sport these babies soon!

Zac Posen Bags

Piperlime is having a big 40% off sale and well…the first thing I thought about were purses!!  I’ve had my eye on these two bags for a while…but…they are still crazy expensive.  Zac Posen isn’t a brand or designer I normally gravitate to, however, I really really love the shape and structure of these bags.  PLUS they have really fun pops of color.  The second bag has a hot pink lining and the fun animal print. ❤

Summer Shoes + Skirt

Feels good to be wearing sandals and skirts!  Although the LA weather has been on/off gloomy~~ it’s nice that the warm weather is finally here!! xo

Bringing Back the 80s

I was looking through piperlime’s bi-annual sale tonight and found that there are SO MANY 80s items!  I know I know…this isn’t anything new…but I’m still surprised to find things that I grew up with and wore~ being the new “trend”.  Here are some fun finds that I wouldn’t mind wearing again.  LOL

Outfits of the Day: Accessories, Hair, Shoes!

I’ve been trying a lot harder to mix unlikely combinations of jewelry/hair/clothing/makeup together to create unique fashion savvy looks.  Here are a few of my experiments.
