Ebay = Too much shopping!

Good evening everyone!

I have recently been browsing eBay a lot and finding some really cute items. One thing that has really caught my eye lately are large statement necklaces but they can get a little pricey. That’s where Ebay comes in! I recently ordered two beautiful necklaces and the first one came in yesterday. Can I tell you all how beautiful it is!

The seller has this necklace in 7 colors: green, apple green, yellow, pink, orange and black. As you can tell from the picture above, I purchased the yellow one and LOVE it! The color is great, it’s big but makes a great statement. I can totally see myself wearing this with a little black dress!

The one thing I will say is that the chain is way longer than it appears online but it’s really easy to hook on to another link. Also, it took two weeks to arrive which isn’t that bad!

Best part about this necklace… it was $6.99 with FREE shipping!

If you’re looking for some cute and inexpensive necklaces, check out eBay!

Let me know if any of you are big Ebay shopper and if you have any suggestions for me to try!

If I shopped at…

Lilly Pulitzer

Who doesn’t love a fun wardrobe full of bright colors yet classic lines. My friend Dixie introduced me to this store and I never thought I’d like it until I tried on one of their dresses. They fit beautifully!

Therefore, this post will feature some of the dresses I would purchase at Lilly!

Rosaline Dress – $278

Nikola Dress – $238

Delila Dress – $278

Emmy Dress – $268

How gorgeous are those dresses! I would absolutely wear each and every one of them. They would be great for a wedding, baby shower or even a bridal shower!

Tip: If you don’t want to spend over $250 on a dress make sure you check out Rent the Runway. They rent a few adorable Lilly Pulitzer dresses!

Let me know which dress is your favorite in the comments below!

Halloween Costume

By this time of the month everyone is probably scrambling through their closet trying to figure out who they will be this Halloween. On this post I will show you how I will be dressing up and how to get the look.

You may recognize the outfit by the polka dots or maybe the ears!

She goes by the name of Minnie Mouse!

This look came to mind after wearing the blouse a few times to work and being referred to as Minnie Mouse. Come to realize that I actually own the ears from a trip to Disney!

Great part about my costume is the versatility of it. You can wear this to a work event or a spooky night out with your friends.

Blouse: H&M $14.95 (Similar Style)

Skirt: H&M $5.95 (Similar Style)

Shoes: H&M $12.95 – High Heel Version

Ears: Disney! (Similar Style)

Makeup: Still not sure but here’s one idea thanks to Emma’s Rectangle!

Overall, I’m really excited to wear this cute outfit on Halloween! Especially since I found all of these items in my closet so it makes the process much easier. Therefore, I encourage you all to dig through your closet and see what you find. You never know if you next costume is hiding beneath everything!

Why buy when you can ‘Rent the Runway’!

Good morning my wonderful readers!

My coworker Angelica recently introduced me to this amazing website called Rent the Runway. On this site you can rent dresses from various designers like Nicole Miller, Badgley Mischka or Zac Posen to name a few.
You can rent the dress of your choice for 3 days and it even includes a second size for FREE! Not only does this site have dresses, but it also has handbags and jewelry available to rent as well.

Dresses vary in price from $40-$400 depending on the style and designer.

Accessories available for rent range from $10-$350!

Now I know what you’re thinking… how will I know if the dress will fit? Rent the Runway has a great feature where they give you specific notes about the fit of the dress.

Here is an example of the notes for one dress:

BUST: Works best for A to C cup sizes – bust area is very fitted and does not have any stretch
WAIST: Very fitted – very fitted throughout midsection
HIPS: Very fitted – skirt runs narrow and is very form-fitting
LENGTH: Mid-thigh – (on a 5’5″ model)

UNDERGARMENTS: May be worn with any standard bra
FABRIC: Fabric has no stretch
GREAT FOR: Hourglass, Petite, Tall, Straight & Narrow body types
(Model’s height is 5’10”.)

(Notes are from www.renttherunway.com)

While I have not had the chance to try this website myself, I have heard a lot of great things about it and decided that it would be selfish if I kept it to myself!

Have you tried this website before or plan or utilizing it soon? Let me know in the comments below!

*I am in no way affiliated with this company! I really think it’s a great concept and wanted to share!*

Don’t leave your colored jeans tucked away this fall!

Happy Sunday!
Today I was thinking of how much I hate putting away summer outfits in the fall. I know that fall consists of more dark hues but sometimes it’s nice to incorporate some color.
One of the biggest trends lately have been colored jeans and I can’t bear to put those away for the fall. Thanks to Polyvore, I created this look featuring blue skinny jeans but with fall inspired pieces that accentuate the jeans while also making them fall appropriate.
Bring your Colored Jeans to Fall

It’s as easy as pairing a nice blazer with black booties and BAM, your colored jeans have officially turned into this years fall staple!

What other ways would you turn your colored jeans into this falls staple? Let me know in the comments!

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!


Essie’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month Collection 2012

Happy Saturday!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and a lot of pink usually hits the shelves as a form of contribution to different organizations from companies. On this blog I want to showcase Essie‘s collection for the month featuring four gorgeous pink hues.

The colors are called; i am strong, good morning hope, check-up and we’re in it together.

First and foremost, I absolutely LOVE the names and how powerful they are. I picked up the shade called check-up and it’s a beautiful shade of pink!

I know that it may look like just a regular pink but it’s truly a unique pink. The formula is incredible and has lasted over 2 weeks on my nails without major chipping.

Has anyone else picked up one of these colors?
