Micheal Kors at Ross?

Happy Saturday everyone!

A lot of my friends know that my favorite store is Ross. It’s like a treasure hunt that requires some work but is so worth it when you find that one piece! On a recent visit to Ross I found an amazing Micheal Kors dress. Yes, you read correctly, Michael Kors! Here’s the best part….

$13.99 for a $99 dress! I know what your thinking, the dress is probably out of date and not that cute…

Check this baby out! This cute color block dress is all mine and I already have a few ideas of how I am going to style it. This is the perfect holiday dress paired with some stockings, boots, cute belt and a chunky necklace.

As always, these posts are encouragement for all of my readers to go check out your local discount stores. Sometimes they are hit or miss but those hits make up for all of the misses!

I’d love to hear about some of your greatest finds at discount stores in the comments below! 🙂

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!

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!

The Alma awards happened yesterday in LA and the red carpet showcased some amazing dresses.

Los premios Alma fueron anoche en Los Angeles y la alfombra roja tuvo muchos estilos bellos.

My absolute favorite has got to be Eva Longorias unique and beautiful dress. The black mixed with the different textures created a very interesting yet stunning look.

Traveling Fashionista Tip

Happy Labor Day weekend! This weekend I am out-of-town and I wanted to share with you all a little trick about packing specific outfits.

While packing, I was inspired by the picture above! This is how Dulce Candy packs when she travels and I thought it would be great if I tried this!

As I was putting my outfits together I started to realize how useful this process is!

  • I can use items that I would otherwise forget I have
  • Ability to see the entire look without running the risk of forgetting a specific item
  • Allows you to plan in advance

Here’s my version!

I really enjoyed putting all of the outfits together! Now I don’t have to worry about remembering a really cute top that I should have brought!

Quick tip:

Sometimes I know that I may not like the way an outfit looks or I may be uncomfortable but seeing all my outfits laid out allows me to make sure that different pieces can go together!

Hope this was helpful! Let me know if you have any other traveling tips for fashionistas!

Sale Alert!

Yesterday I scored a really cute pair of sandals from Target and this time they are also available online for even less than I found them!

The pair shown above is currently on sale for $8.74 and you can get your own pair online!

The pair I got are in a brown shade for $9.89 but I wish my local target would have the pair above available!

P.S. Take a look at Target shoe clearance section online. They’ve got some really cute stuff!

Let me know if you buy a pair!

Small Haul!

Good evening everyone! Today I decided to pass by a mall on my way home just to check out what they had. It nice to sometimes go in the middle of the week to avoid the weekend mad rush! I didn’t get too many things but I sure am happy about the few purchases I made!

As we all know, sheer top are very in style lately which leads me to buy tank tops to wear underneath. So far, the best deals I’ve found are at Forever 21. They cost $2.80 and have a wide variety of colors!

I got the tank top in three colors; black, white and peach. I think they will be great to wear with a lot of things. Besides, you can never have too many tanks and especially at $2.80!

Before checking out I saw this cute bow and had to have it! It cost $3.80 and it’s so cute! I can see myself wearing this with a chunky necklace.

My last and most favorite purchase are these wedges from Charlotte Russe! They were $10!!! These will be great all year round so I’m going to get good use out of them. As always, these may not be available at you local Charlotte Russe but I highly suggest you all going to check! You never know what you might find! 🙂

Have you all found any good deals lately? Let me know below in the comments!
