bikini season?

would you believe me if i told you its bikini season?
yeah i wouldnt either. but now is actually the best time to buy.
all you favorite expensive brands actually have swim wear discounted,
abercrombie, victorias secret, and dozens of other retail stores have their swimwear discounted
on the other hand brands like Dolce and Gabbana and Juicy Couture are just premiering their swimwear lines for 2011. So dont expect to see discounts on those. But last years styles are definetly on sale.

as the kardashians work to take over the world. they have come out with a swim wear line for beach bunny
this line features swimwear trends of 2011
which include marilyn monroe inspired monkinis and chains 
another trend featured by the Cali line is lace
but this trend reminds me of lingerie. so i would shy away from it

Happy shopping!

winter musts

Now that the weather has dropped so low that you haveta wear a jacket instead of layer
i thought i would bring out the fabulous winter musts
at the top of that list would be
1. A sturdy pair of fabulous boots to keep the snow out.
I recommend UGGS, they dont just make comfy boots for high school girls anymore
their Casdy boot (seen below) is warm and cute and will last a lifetime.
2. The circular scarf
this scarf has gained much deserved popularity over the past two years and is a convenient winter accessory for keeping your neck warm and adding a pop of color peeking out of your usually monotone winter jacket. i recommend buying one from american apparel which has a multitude of uses and a great length
3. Lastly on my brief list of winter musts in the long glove. remember those ballroom gloves you wore at your sweet 16 to look like cinderella?
well now they are back to keep your whole arm warm for the winter. my recommendation is forever 21 fingerless long gloves for 7.80. fingers free for texting and wrists warm.

happy shopping.

Designer Trends

This dress is from Dior Winter 2010 line. Dior has managed to bring the girly floral chiffons of spring to the winter by adding over the knee boots and tailor jackets.
This show featured the best of English 1800s style with a modern twist.
Personally I think chiffons and florals should stay in the spring
So if you want that tailored English look for less go to forever 21, they have great separates that make perfection if paired with the proper pieces.
normally you would see this and its kinda ugly. no hanger appeal, no nothing.
but if you pair this sleeveless shirt dress with lace tights, ankle booted oxfords a button up underneath and an oversized open front sweater over it with cute dark framed glasses you have the perfect english look with a modern twist and more weather appropriate i would say.

on the military wave

we all love Doc Martens but they can range in prices from $100- $150
Dr. Marten has done a line for Sanrio. Instead of spending over hundred dollars on a hello kitty military boot, make your own hello kitty inspired boots.
Steve Madden and Forever 21 have military boots ranging from $30- $75.
While creating ur inspiration think of buying the following craft goods:
  • glitter
  • ribbon
  • rhinestones
  • paint 
after you have chosen your idea. work with a hot glue gun to mold your look into fruition.
as a gift i used rhinestones for the toe part of the boot and red ribbon to make bows and place them on the outside edges of the boot. I did this on black leather forever 21 military style boot. 
no matter what your holiday needs, you can customize your gifts to ur friends intrests without breaking the bank.

I'm finding it impossibly difficult to fight the urge to buy leopard wedges. My obsession began with the Giuseppe Zanotti wedges you see pictures on the left. My obsession dulled to a simmer when i realized that they were almost a fourth of my college tuition. so i decided to find the fabulously unrich version of these leopard show stoppers. and thats when i came across these wedges at forever 21. I still get to feed my leopard fix for a whopping $27.50 as opposed to $2,000. Great deal, right?

Africana Weekend

This is shopbop style at its best. All from the sale section of course. This is the best outfit to kick off my party weekend.





Mixed Strip Heels


This african trend I kept seeing inspired me to pair the cheetah print clutch with the elephant ring and jazz up the simple black dress with a funky chain. The shoes and belt are from Charlotte Russe. Their shoes are buy one get one for $15, which make them a great find. I hope this fabulously unrich outfit inspires your weekend look.

tie me up, chain me down

left: Joyrich Chain Link leggings $52.00 karmaloop.com
right: McQ by Alexander McQueen leggings $225 $90 on outnet.com

Pattern leggings are definitely the style for the fall, making your off the shoulder tees and casual wear more fabulous. i'm absolutely in love with Alexander McQueens McQ line. when i first saw these leggings i was in love, but not at the price of $255, (maybe at $90). Then after i saw the Joyrich leggings i was so happy to find a happy medium where its a similar pattern for only $52.00

happy shopping,

pour some leather on me

rag&bone leather short for $760.00

leather has become the fall favorite with fur and tights to match. I found the same cut short for 22.80 at forever21. If you are looking for a glam biker look at a cheaper rate I suggest forever21 for leather shorts at an affordable price. For my glam biker look i paired my leather shorts with a faux fur vest and white vneck tucked in the high waisted short with similar ankle boots as seen on the model. 

happy shopping,
