For the Love of….

Maybe, it’s because I’m a Valentine’s baby. Maybe it’s that I have a huge heart. Whatever the case, I have an affinity for hearts. Especially when used as small details to an outfit, or expression, like jewelry (and the small red tattoo of I heart I have).

Etsy’s always has great handmade and vintage jewelry!

Spring Style

I wore this outfit a few week ago on a date night. I love because it was inexpensive, just the right amount of coverage for spring time, and the pink blouse is the perfect shade to go from day to night. Not to mention the whole outfit was less than $50!! 

Black Jeans $10.00 from Forever 21

Black Flats $14.99 from Target

Pink Blouse $18.99 from JCPenny’s (Wait, What?? YES! They’ve really stepped it up this season!)

Vintage Finds that are LESS EXPENSIVE and BETTER than their fraternal twin!

Okay, you’re right. They’re clutches. They can’t have a twin. But seriously, these clutches are similar, and the price difference between them is so wonderful it makes me want to dance! I LOVE a good find! I means LOVE IT!
I love things that are nearly one-of-a-kind as well. There is something about vintage items that gives me that I’m an individual, I’m unique feeling. Knowing that I have something that almost no one else is likely sporting makes me happy.  There is often a charm to vintage items that draws me in.
I figured I would share these with all of you. But I’m not gonna lie, I was reluctant! I kept thinking, “Yes, these are awesome! But what if I decided that I want them afterall and someone else buys them first?!” I figure, better to share than to be greedy so you go! The pink vintage clutch from Etsy’s is my FAVORITE!!!
All of my purses with the exception of maybe one or two I bought online. I’m going to make a series out of these amazing deals and how I find very similar items with drastically different prices! Hope you enjoy!

Spring Maxi Dress and Accessories for almost NOTHING! Seriously!

I’m a huge fan of Forever 21. I know a lot of people aren’t. But for the prices, I don’t think you can really go wrong. Sometimes, all you want is a simple cotton dress. Why does it need to cost $100? I don’t think it does.

Certainly, there are items that warrant a high price tag, especially if it’s going to last. But I change up my clothes and styles frequently, -not to mention in MN we have serious seasonal changes, so I’m forced to change things up frequently! These items are not items I would ever spend a serious amount on. It’s just not necessary.

Enjoy!

My Favorite Way to Add Some Life to an Outfit!

Bracelets are simply my favorite type of accessories. I can’t tell you how many I have. I have cheap ones, expensive ones, handmade ones, -you name it! What’s great about bracelets and bangles is that they can be dressed up and down. Wear beaded ones to the beach, a nice solid gold bangle to work, or mix and match. It doesn’t take much effort. Getting dressed every morning and putting together an outfit shouldn’t be like a second job. It should be quick, FUN, and an expression on who you are.

In a simply, outfit, bracelets can add that extra “Something”.

Fashion Idol to Fashion Icon: Nicole Richie

If there is one person who I had to state has the most similar as I do, it woud be Nicole Richie. Everything she wears is something I would pick up off the rack in a store. Her style is unique, artistic, free, detailed, and simply beautiful. I love her in so many ways, but fashion is certainly at the top of my list.

I love the head scarf!
