OOTD: Magenta & Green

This is a super late outfit post! A couple weeks, I went out to dinner with Sheela and she called me a few hours before and says "I think I'm gonna dress up for you". I was happy she said that coz I'm usually the one who dresses up and she likes to keep it cazh. I just feel like you should dress up every chance you get - it's so much fun, no?

Anyways, this dress had been in a my closet for a while and I hadn't worn it yet so I decided to take it for a night out! At first, I had just worn it with a long, gold necklace but then I remembered this J.Crew look-a-like bubble necklace that I had just bought and I had been dying to wear it. So, I changed it up.

PS - The dress is a little long, IMO, to go with stockings. So, I just folded it up at the waist.
Dress: Asos / Necklace: Charlotte Russe / Watch: BCBG / Bracelet: Forever21 / Clutch & Shoes: Old
Do you guys like to dress up when you're just going to to dinner with your girls? Or do you like to keep it cazh?

So, I decided to take a nap and when I woke up and went online to see what dresses I had missed, I was very pleased. So, here are my 3 picks for best dressed -
January Jones in Prabal Gurung
Amanda Seyfried in a Zac Posen dress and Lorraine Schwartz jewels

These ladies definitely got it all right! Who did you guys love at the SAG Awards?

Coat Crush: Coats under $150

I have sort of an obsession with coats - mostly long coats. This is probably one of the top reasons I love living in the Northeast - nothing like being able to experience all four seasons! I absolutely love my coats and scarves. So, when a friend of mine asked me to help her shop for coats, I was all too happy! The bargain shopper in me knows that now is a great time to shop for coats so, I have picked out eight fabulous coats - all under $150 each (#5 is only $40)!
1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8

Are y'all as obsessed with coats as I am? Do you like any of these? I'm in love with #2!

Spring 2013 Wardrobe Update

With a new season, we have new trends and these trends change so rapidly that's it tough to always keep up and update your wardrobe to match every trend! I have a couple rules about this - 1. Remember you don't HAVE to follow every trends. 2. You don't have to flood your wardrobe with the new trends every season. What I typically do is buy 1 or 2 pieces for each trend that I'm loving.

Let's talk about Spring 2013. I'm so excited because as much as I love brights and florals (and I do LOVE brights & florals), it's great to see some fun, new trends! I'm gonna stick with 3 of my faves for this season - Black & White, Stripes, and Leather. I've picked some of my favorite pieces for each trend.

PS - As mentioned in this post, I'm on a 2-month shopping ban. So, this was not easy for me - I want literally every single piece! You guys have fun shopping on my behalf! :)

Black & White
Bag / Flats / Pumps / Skirt / Dress / Pants / Top / Necklace

Dress / Skirt / Bag / Jeans / Scarf / Shoes / Top

Vegan Skirt / Dress / Pants / Corset Top / Jacket / Peplum Top
Well, happy wardrobe update!

OOTD: Military Casual

You guys, I am obsessed with these boots! I've been living in them - they are SO comfortable, and the plaid lining is super cute! I've been living in these, esp since I'm restricted to flats because of my injuries! Thanks to the exceptionally warm weather yesterday, I was able to pair em with my favorite pair of distressed denims!

Prabal Gurung For Target: A Love Story

"One thing I kept on coming back to, was the idea of love - whether it's having it, pining for it, losing, wanting it. Most of the collection that I do, has been inspired by love."
- Prabal Gurung, on his collection for Target.

From the minute I heard about this collab, I was in love. When I saw the lookbook, I could feel the love. Prabal Gurung is one of my absolute favorite designers and Target has always done a fabulous job with their designer collabs (except the one with Neiman Marcus - that was awful!). I can see myself falling in love, wearing one of the dresses from this collection. Seriously, I'm kind of obsessed with this collection. Ok, I'll stop talking about it now and just share some of my favorite pieces.

Btw, for all the men - this collection comes out just in time for Valentine's Day - on 2/10. Any piece from this collection is a winning Valentine's Day gift - you can thank me later! :)
1. Dress with full skirt in Floral Crush print - $49.99
2. Dress with full skirt in Apple red and black - $49.99
3. Flat Sandals - $29.99
4. Lace-up pumps in Meet The Parents print - $39.99
5. Pintuck Dress - $49.99
6. Blazer - $49.99, and Shorts - $36.99 - in Floral Crush print
7. Ruffle blouse in Dresden blue and black - $34.99
Here's the tricky part for me - If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you know that I'm going to try and go on a shopping hiatus for two months, starting 1/15. Of course, this collection comes out smack in the middle of this hiatus, on 2/10. So, needless to say, I'm already going to cheat. At least, it'll be worth it, right? Have y'all checked out the collection yet? Do you plan on buying any of the pieces? Please share!!

OOTD: Spots & Stripes

Hey lovies - hope y'all had an amazing holiday season and a fabulous NYE! How's 2013 been treating you so far? We didn't have heat in our house for 2 weeks - finally got that sorted out today - yay! I'm also starting classes again in 2 weeks so, just been spending time catching up with friends.

Now about this outfit - B&W, and stripes are two of THE biggest trends for Spring 2013! So, when I saw this top, I had to have it, but I didn't just wanna pair it with something predictable like leggings or dark jeans. So, I decided to go out of my comfort zone, and mix prints!
