Look For Less: Valentino Rockstuds

18 September 2014

If you're a Valentino Rockstud fan but can't foot the bill, I found two more fabulous finds for a fraction of the designer price tag from none other than DSW and Lulu*s.

Pretty close right? At this rate you can buy 10 pairs and still have change left over ;).

Hanes Live.Love.Color Tees, Two Ways

17 September 2014

I’m all for adding color to my ensemble especially when it comes in the form of a comfy tee that can be easily dressed up or worn with while lounging around the house. I just love the ease of throwing it on with a pencil or midi skirt with just the addition of a fabulous heel or necklace to spice things up. So when Hanes introduced me to their Live.Love.Color Tees I couldn’t resist giving a handful of them a whirl. The colors are vibrant, the fit is super soft and they come an array of (neck) designs and fits. I found that one of the best parts is they’re super budget friendly at $10 and under, which means I can finally stop buying those $30 tees that I’m terrified to wash...

With that being said, I thought my post Fashion Week style needed a pop of color to perk me up so I threw the tees on with two of my favorites to help keep things stylish while I stroll right on into Fall. And if you’re not in the color mood check out the Hanes Signature camis for your wardrobe style staple additions in Black and White (or any of the other 12 color choices).

Daisy Dream By Marc Jacobs

16 September 2014

Of course by now I’m sure you’ve heard of Marc Jacobs’s latest fragrance release, Daisy Dream by Marc Jacobs ($76 for the 1.7 Oz bottle). The elegant yet crisp springtime scent filled with notes of blackberry, jasmine, white woods (just to name a few) make you believe that you’re in a field of daisies, or at least wish you were. Perhaps in a dream. I personally have found myself spritzing this on more than my other favorites. So to go along with the {Daisy} Dream feeling you can create your very own dream capsule on the Marc Jacobs Fragrance website and submit it to be entered to win some fun prizes drawn each week (we’re talking Marc Jacobs fragrances, accessories, and the grand prize: a Marc Jacobs experience you thought you could only dream of). You’ll be sent your capsule in a year to see what goals and dreams have come true since...

Obviously I created one because why not, right? Which brought up what kind of goals and dreams I might have for the next year, or 5 years down the road. Finding more time to create is a first on the list, as well as traveling a little more and finally taking that trip to Paris. Others were more family related, whereas some involved cake, naturally.

And if you’re looking for some inspiration, or just some new tunes, check out the Daisy Dream Pandora playlist created by the man himself, Marc Jacobs.

NYFW Style with Lulu*s

15 September 2014

This Fashion Week I mostly kept things simple in the form of separates, prints and color. I wanted easy, wearable pieces with their own pop of pizazz and personality for each day I was there... 

So when I teamed up with Lulu*s to throw together a couple of NYFW outfits I immediately knew that I would reach for a playful skirt, cropped top and layers, my current uniform, naturally. Though I will say their current selection made it hard for me to narrow things down, talk about awesome Fall pieces!

As far as Day 4's look goes, the {midi} skirt spoke volumes on it's on with a playful new take on typical stripes in the form of sheer and metallics. Topped with a cropped top and leather jacket it fit together perfectly, I grabbed my larger bag for toting my camera and heavier items but switched it out for a clutch for dinner...

Juicy Couture Viva la Juicy Gold X TfDiaries

12 September 2014

When it comes to gold I’m probably one of the firsts to layer it on when I’m getting dressed, there’s just something about that bright metallic hue that does something to me. Eyeshadow, accessories, and jewelry, you name it - I’m all for it. So when Juicy Couture launched Viva la Juicy Gold Couture I thought it was only fitting to give it a try and head to the launch where I was doused it all things gold, including my ensemble for the evening. My vintage {french connection} gold sequin dress paired with a smokey eye seemed fitting for the occasion, am I right?
After walking in to Goldbar (how fitting), I was quickly spritzed with Viva la Juicy Gold Couture and sent on my way to grab a drink, indulge in their ice cream bar and of course try my hand at the photo booth, like any blogger would do. We spent the night watching the bartenders craft custom Gold Couture inspired cocktails with just a touch of pink with chambord and raspberries to keep things in theme with the brand and fragrance. Which was then followed up with chatting about our favorite shows and trends from the tents this week. As we ended out our night in the rooms adorned in fragrance bottles and the right amount of sparkle we were handed glitter gift bags filled with midas infused accessories, beauty products and of course, a purse sized rollerball of the fragrance for on-the-go application...
I’m sure by now you’re wondering about the scent, so as far as the fragrance itself goes, it has quickly taken a (dominant) spot on my dresser with it’s rich vanilla, caramel and amber aroma paired with decedent berries. I’ve found it light enough for everyday use with just a touch of decadence. Viva la Juicy {Gold Couture}!

Medina II Day To Night

11 September 2014

It’s really no secret that I play favorites with Fall, there’s just something about the crisp feeling in the air that feels almost like magic to me. Of course, the loads of layers and the stylish boots don’t really hurt. Which is why I’m alway on the hunt for functional yet stylish fall additions for my closet. Because, you should never have to sacrifice style for function, right? Absolutely, which is exactly what I thought when I first set my sites on SOREL’s Medina II, original yet modern with a touch of elegance and edge. Now, you might already be a fan of SOREL’s winter boots, but after seeing their new Fall collection, you’re going to love them almost all year around... 

The Medina II isn’t like other all weather boots, they can be worn dressed up or down and worn for just about any occasion. Be it work, shopping, brunch or even date night with their luxe attention to detail and function. Plus, the pop of metallic with the gold plated heel? Perfection. Which is exactly why I’ve teamed up with SOREL to share my new Fall favorite boot and how to style it from day to night. Now, as you might remember my long standing rule of finding at least 3 different ways to wear an item before adding it my closet to guarantee that it will get worn, and of course keep the cost per wear down. If you missed my #1boots3ways Instagram posts, check them out. If not, here’s two more ways to wear Medina II....

Obviously, it wouldn’t quite be Fall without some sort of denim involvement which is why jeans (via Maurices) and a white flowing blouse with a few loose accessories were the clear way to go for day. Put together yet laid back and not stealing the show from the boots.

As far as night goes, layering is key. A flirty little skater skirt and graphic tee with a leather jacket to give the entire look a tough feel . This time around I removed the leather cover (yes, it’s removable!) to keep things monochromatic. When things get cooler you can be sure that I’ll be adding textured tights to this ensemble.
