Sequin Peplum Dress

Sunday, February 26, 2012

Alice + Olivia Sequin Peplum Dress: Ebay
Clutch/Bracelet: Vintage
Heels: Marshalls
Earrings: Target

 My brother in-law got married this weekend and it was the perfect occasion to wear this pretty Alice+Olivia sequined peplum dress. I found it on Ebay about a year ago and I've been so excited to wear it. I was drawn to the olive color, festive look, and the fact that it was a peplum dress! I tried to compliment the sequins on the bust with different metals in my accessories; a pair of metallic t-strap pumps that are very YSL-esque and chic, a silver cuff and clutch, and pretty darker silver earrings.
The wedding was such a gorgeous event and I'm blessed to have such a lovely new sister!
Hope your weekend was amazing also :)

Pink Polka Dots

Friday, February 24, 2012

Blouse: Forever 21
Paige Jeans: Ebay
Nude Pumps: Steve Madden
Earrings: Target

Sorry for my lack of posting, I've been so busy lately. 
I fell in love with this blouse the moment I saw it: it's a beautiful chiffon material and has lovely mint polka dots all over it. I especially love the shoulder cut outs; I feel so feminine wearing this blouse :)
It was almost 80 degrees out yesterday...definitely a white pants day! I had some work to get done so I decided to do it poolside-best decision EVER.  So relaxing.

Enjoy your weekend and this beautiful weather

Floppy Hat

Saturday, February 18, 2012

Hat:Ross ($6!) similar style here
Sweater: H&M
Blazer: Nordstrom (similar style here)
Burberry Tote: Bloomingdales
Paige Jeans: Nordstrom Rack (similar style here)
Dani Black Boots: Marshalls (here)
Jewelry: Target & Macy's

I had a class field trip to the Asian Art Museum in the city today and figured it was the perfect day to wear this lovely hat! I had been looking for a floppy hat this season and they were either too expensive or too massive; I came across this beauty at Ross and couldn't resist the leopard accent and the $6 price tag. It was definitely worth the wait :)

Seafoam Skulls

Thursday, February 16, 2012

Black Booties: Target (similar style here)
Skull Blouse: Marshalls
Rich and Skinny Jeans: Platos (similar style here)
Neon Belt: Thrifted ($2!) (similar style here)
Ray Bans: Nordstrom (sold here)
Bracelets: DIY wrap bracelet, Forever21, Macys

Today was sunny and warm so I opted for a bright blouse and a neon belt. The top is actually a PJ top/bathing suit coverup- but I prefer to wear it as a blouse :)  It's probably one of my favorite shirts ever: it's seafoam and has skulls...I adore both! I found this belt while thrifting last week and was super excited because I'm crazy about neons and it was only $2. Hope your week is great so far.
Thank you for reading!

Red Suede

Wednesday, February 15, 2012

Blouse: Old Navy (similar style here)
BDG Pants: Urban Outfitters (simliar style here)
Necklace and Pumps: Thrifted

While doing my usual thrifting, I discovered these amazing pumps for only $6! I've been wanting a pair of pointy toed pumps and these were perfect. I especially like the smaller heel because I can wear them to school. I decided to be cliche and wear red for Valentine's Day, mainly because of these heels. I added my chunky gold necklace, skinny jeans, and a bright red blouse to finish the look.
My Valentine's Day consisted of a day full of classes with a coffee date snuck in between :)
