Weddington Way

I still remember the first thing everyone said to me at my sister’s wedding was, “That bridesmaid dress is great, you’ll definitely be able to wear it again”.  I am a firm believer of getting multiple wears and usage out of all articles of clothing… including bridesmaid dresses!  I found some gorgeous bridesmaid dresses from Weddington Way and decided to take my favorite and turn it into a summer date night outfit!

Florals for Spring… Groundbreaking

I know…Florals for Spring… Groundbreaking trend, but lately I have caught myself in florals a lot (if I’m not in my “uniform” of all black).  Here are some of my favorite floral finds!

Cinderella at Kohl’s

IMG_8381

Kohl’s launched two Cinderella Collections yesterday, and yes, they are a dream come true!  They have a Disney’s Cinderella for Juniors collection, and Disney’s Cinderella a Collection by LC Lauren Conrad – both are full of tulle, floral prints and the classic Cinderella blue. It took all my will power to not buy it all, so these were the three pieces I settled on.

MANSUR GAVRIEL

If you haven’t seen someone who works in fashion carrying a  Mansur Gavriel Bucket Bag around the streets of NYC, then you may have been living under a rock.  As popular as these bags were in 2014, with them currently being sold out until March, there is no doubt that these bags are going to continue to soar in popularity during 2015! Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel were named a Racked Young Gun of 2014 and rightly so, not only were they picked up by Bergdorf Goodman’s, but their bags sell out within minutes on every website! With prices averaging between $500 and $600, these bags hit a niche in the market that is widely ignored- there are few designer bags at this price point.  If you can get your hands on one of these beauties, jump on the opportunity!

‘More Issues Than Vogue’ Tee

IMG_0443

I love T-shirts; I love how you can dress them up or down and wear them a billion different ways!  I’ve wanted a More Issues Than Vogue Tee for a while now, but didn’t want a thin, expensive low quality one, so I kept searching.  Luckily I stumbled across Scarlett Jai’s AMAZING Etsy Shop and found the perfect tee!  With fun sayings like I woke up like this and Tres Chicthis is the perfect shop for any fashionista!  The best part?  Her t-shirts are $15 and under!   I styled my More Issues Than Vogue Tee with a Kendra Scott Harlow Necklace in Neon Pink, this drawstring skirt from J. Crew, and this fantastic chain bracelet from All About My Jewelry!

Cruciani: The New “It” Bracelet

IMG_0366

Last week while at the Shops At Columbus Circle, I stumbled into Crucianil; unsure of what exactly it was, I didn’t pay much attention to it.  Within the week I started seeing Cruciani bracelets everywhere- most recognizably on BaubleBar’s website! These macrame bracelets, 100% handmade in Italy, are all the rage! They are lightweight, making them perfect for summer and come in a HUGE variety of colors- everything from neon to metallic.  I wanted a color (not a neutral), but I also wanted one that would match everything, so I chose their classic Clover Bracelet in Blush. Their bracelets average $18 making them a great gift! The only downside is that they tie onand are kind of difficult to tie yourself.

Love Always,

Be Brave

I posted this quote a while back, but it’s one of my favorite; Brave is something I’m working toward; something I wish I possessed more of.  Through Instagram, I stumbled upon The Brave Collection and fell in love! Each bracelet says, Klahan, which means Brave in Khmer.  The best part is that proceeds help to fight human trafficking. Check out some of the bracelets below!
