I'm Out!

I have some really exciting news to share with you guys! I'm grabbing my stilettos, and all my sequins, and strutting on outta here! My destination -!

When I started this blog, I never expected to continue blogging for so long. Actually, I had no idea what to expect. And then, I got addicted to it. I have no shame in admitting that. The reason I got addicted to it is because, through this blog, I have met the most amazing people - YOU! That's right - all you incredible and inspiring women! I wanna thank you all so, SO much for all the wonderful comments, and all your love & support.

In honor of my new site and to thank all of you - I'm doing five days of giveaways, starting today! Yep - I'm giving away something different everyday till Friday! I hope you'll strut on over to my new site, with me, and enter the giveaways! I look forward to seeing you all there and can't wait to hear your thoughts on the new site!

A Letter About Heartbreak

This blog has moved.
Last week I was at Aldo's and saw this beauty - the Petrona. Now, I actually have a few injuries in my legs and haven't been wearing heels nearly as much as I used to. I'm also not supposed to be wearing heels for a while. But when I saw this, I got weak in the knees. My heart skipped a beat. I was out of breathe. I had to have these - for when I'm back to wearing heels. I absolutely HAD to have them. Well, as you probably can tell from the title of this post - I couldn't have them. They didn't have them in my size. They didn't even have them in the next size up - I would've worn that with insoles. But no, they didn't have it. They didn't have any online. They didn't have any at any stores in the neighboring states. Nowhere.

I felt like I had gone from being head over heels in love (pun intended) to being stabbed in my heart, within a matter of seconds. It was like no pain I had ever felt before. Am I being a little overdramatic? Probably. Do I care? No. I'm a girl whose heart has been shattered. All I wanted was to bring the love of my life home with me. And I couldn't.

So, dear Aldo's designers and executives - this is a letter to you. I need this shoe in my life. I'll be waiting.

Heartbroken & Helpless

Outfit: Burgundy & Neon

This blog has moved.

This top (also seen here) is clearly becoming a new favorite. I wore this outfit to school last week and feel like it's the perfect casual look! Btw, I scored these boots for $10!

Outfit: Lace Skirt

This blog has moved.

OMG this is my 100th post, you guys! This look is so different for me, personally. I guess it's my spin on office wear - since I'm graduating in a few short weeks, and all! :-0 When I used to work, before grad school, I would never stick to the typical blacks/greys/blues. I always loved wearing colors. So, this is me prepping myself for when I'm back in the workforce - which will be soon, hopefully. The great thing about this outfit is that it's totally work appropriate (even without a blazer!) and can still be worn straight to happy hour!

Outfit: Coral & Turquoise

This blog has moved.

I love that the colors on this dress are so intense! As I had mentioned in this post, this dress is one of the 3 items I ended up keeping from the Prabal for Target collection. I absolutely love the dress, my only issue is that it gets wrinkled. I feel like this is the perfect outfit for work, or a Sunday brunch!

Btw, if you follow me in Instagram or Twitter, you might have seen that I got a new haircut last week. I've got a few more outfit posts from before the new haircut so I'll debut the new 'do on the blog next week! :)

Outfit: Emerald Shoes

This blog has moved.

These shoes are one of my absolute favorites - I bought them a few years ago and it was totally meant to be. The thing is, I had been eyeing them for a while but didn't wanna spend the full price. So, one day I was at the mall with Sheela when we saw that Steve Madden had a Spin The Wheel sale. I figured why not give it a shot? Well, I won 40% off of one item and I bought these shoes! They also just happen to be in Pantone's 2013 color of the year!

April's Covet List

Bag / Dress / Boots / Bracelet / Pants / Necklace
Bag: Y'all probably already recognize the bag! I've always wanted this bag and I absolutely love it in this beautiful, pastel color!

Dress: Well, black & white is one of THE hottest trend this spring. What I love about this dress is that the white part is actually faux leather. I already have another piece in white faux leather and I feel like it's the perfect mix of summer+girly+edgy.

Boots: These boots are pretty much a far more affordable version of the Chloƫ studded boots. I absolutely love them - they're super versatile and edgy.

Bracelet: I am sort of obsessed with animal bangles of this kind, and I already own a couple (seen here, here, here, here, to mention a few). J.Crew puts out a new animal bangle every season and I love each and every one. This one, however, is a bit special because I've always been in awe of dolphins - they fascinate me!

Pants: Military-inspired is another huge trend this spring so, I feel like I pretty much need these ankle skinnies, no?

Necklace: You might have noticed in some of my recent posts (like this one) that lately I've been gotten into stacking multiple little pendant necklaces. I've gathered quite a few necklaces and this would be the perfect addition!

What are you coveting right now?

Outfit: Minimalist

Happy Fat Tuesday, doll faces! Btw, in case you didn't already figure it out - I'm not shaving my head! It was just an April Fool's joke! :-P I'm too much of a chicken to do that so I'll just stick with getting a regular trim!
So, I bought this coat a while ago but then realized that it's not really a coat. What I mean is that it's not really warm or practical for actual cold weather. But I got it for $19.99 and it's pretty fab so I figured I'll save it for spring!

Outfit: Yellow Blouse

Happy Monday, lovies! You know I just realized I've been so drawn to yellow lately - I've posted quite a few outfits recently with yellow tops. So, this will have to be the last of it - it's time to stop the discrimination! Anyways, I wanna share something with you guys ....
