Accessories Seal the Deal

Accessories Seal the Deal

Details count. Whether it’s a subtle necklace or a loud flower headband – no outfit is complete without the right accessories!

LF Flower headband

Kooba clutch, Forever 21 pouch, vintage purse

Chanel sunglasses, Dents gloves

What’s new pussycat?

29 Mar

Be it dramatic eye makeup or slanted sunglasses, you can expect to see a lot of cat-eyes going on this spring. Designers high and low have embraced the trend – from Marc Jacobs and Alexander Wang to Forever 21.

Too cloudy to sport sunnies (without looking like a jackass)? Just add a little curve to your eyelids and reveal your inner friskiness. Okay, maybe this is a lot of curve, but you get the idea…

Bright and sunshiny? Feline frames are the simple accessory that can amplify even the most ordinary of outfits. Throw them on with something casual and turn boring into brilliant!

Secret Garden

28 Mar

There’s a charming little park up the street from my house. It’s tucked within a residential neighborhood and the fact that it’s always empty leads me to believe that few people even know it’s there. We were feeling rustic so I thought it the perfect opportunity to throw on my fun new romper and spend some time beneath the trees.

Wearing: Aqua romper, Elie Tahari wedges, vintage jewelry

H&M Garden Collection

27 Mar

With an infusion of garden romance and 70′s flower-power, this sustainable collection is begging to be worn this spring. Not only are the fabrics recycled and the styles fashion-forward, but the prices are in the $15-$60 range!

Since the collection hit floors on Thursday (3/25), don’t hesitate to head over there! In true H&M style these chic pieces will likely be picked over or sold out in no time.

Vintage Beauties

25 Mar

All three women are still so lovely, but look how stunning Twiggy, Brooke Shields, and Kate Moss were in their early days of fame…

The eyes… the hair… the lips! Not to mention the vintage effect on the photos. Love this look!

Watch you lookin at?

I’ve never been much of a watch-wearer, but I do find the oversized style to be adorable in a “stole it from my ex-boyfriend” kind of way. Layer one with some funky bracelets for the perfectly accessorized wrist! Not only will you be blingin’ but you’ll always be on time.

Journey Down The Rabbit Hole

23 Mar

I recently saw Alice in Wonderland, and must say that it was two hours well-spent. While the I adored the movie for it’s peculiarity, the costumes are what really had me captivated. Ever since, I have been spotting items left and right that remind me of the fashion – from bubblegum & mint green colors to florals, hearts and statement pieces….
