Risky Business

I call this outfit risky business because there is a classy business feel to it with a hint of risk! Don’t get me wrong though…this is definitely NOT the outfit to wear to a business meeting or to work (unless you work in a really chill and trendy environment perhaps). This is a great outfit for dinner or cocktails with the girls when you want to look sophisticated but also flirty!

For all of you short people out there, these petite jeans are LIFE SAVORS because you do not have to pay to get them hemmed…you’re welcome.

Black Cardigan: You can pair this outfit with any simple black cardigan. I bought mine a couple years ago at Nordstrom for about $20.

Happy Spring Cleaning!

Happy Spring cleaning everyone! It is time to put away the winter clothes and reorganize your closets! BUT FIRST, before saying goodbye to winter for good, I’d like to share with you one of my favorite winter outfits. After, I will share with you some essentials that get me through the Spring season!

As you can see, I love a pretty pop of red! I wore this outfit to my birthday dinner with the family.

I got the blouse from Bloomingdales on sale for $82.60. I know it is still a little pricey but it was originally $118. You can shop this Karen Kane Sparkle Trim Bell Sleeve blouse at bloomies right now on sale for $88.50 (25% off).

The white fur coat is my moms so bless her soul for letting me borrow it so I could feel extra chic on my birthday! I am assuming the fur coat was WAY over my budget so shop these white fur coats instead that won’t break your bank account!!

Linza Faux Fur Jacket at Fashionnova for $39.99

Irene Faux Fur Hooded Jacket at Fashionnova for $49.99

(You can definitely get these cheaper at Fashionnova because there are always sales and promo codes you can use).

The Fur Vault Rex Rabbit Fur Bolero at Macy’s on sale right now for $715 plus an extra 20% off with the code: SALE, which brings you to a total of $572!! This is a steal only because the original price is $1,795!!! Obviously this is the most expensive option but is the best option if you are looking for a real fur coat that is somewhat affordable cause real fur is expensive. Always keep a look out for deals like these when trying to buy a special pricey item. Sale ends April 8th!

Jeans: DL 1961 Florence Instasculpt skinny jeans in Neptune for $178 (I got these on sale for $99).

My bag and shoes are my favorite part of this outfit! My Christian Louboutins were a gift from my Aunt for my 21st birthday and I actually cried tears of joy when she gave them to me. They were limited edition at the time so I am not sure if stores still have them, they are a bit of a tricky find!! They are not the most comfortable but beauty is pain, am I right ladies?? I would only recommend wearing these to occasions where most of the time you will be sitting…a nice dinner party perhaps??

I got my Alma Louis Vuitton bag at the flagship store in Paris with my birthday money while I was abroad two years ago. If you plan on buying something Louis Vuitton and you are in Paris, I highly recommend you buy it there because the prices are significantly lower! Just don’t forget the VAT tax!

NOW FOR SOME SPRING ESSENTIALS THAT GET ME THROUGH THE SEASON:

  1. Coffee is a must year round but my skinny iced vanilla lattes with almond milk from Starbucks keep me sane throughout the Spring. If you are trying to be extra healthy, then ask for the sugar free vanilla syrup. I promise you it tastes just as delicious! 15985863205_c858c5a134_b
  2.  Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in the color- Sparkling Bellini ($30 at Ulta). I love this blush for the spring because it brings out more peachy tones with the perfect hint of sparkle, making this the perfect blush to go with brighter colors! unnamed-37
  3. Urban Decay Full Spectrum Eye Palette  , which is a bit tricky to find at the moment but you can get it on sale now at Nordstrom Rack for $33.97 instead of $55. I use this palette much more in the Spring and Summer because of all the bright colors. I enjoy playing around with the colors to make some fun looks.  Below are two looks I completed with this palette and the blush. Also, sorry the palette on the outside looks a little beat up…I should probably stop throwing my palettes around. unnamed-33unnamed-38
