I kept seeing this Dior moment on pinterest so figured I’d just go ahead and recreate the look because I happen to have all the ingredients.  I wore this last night to the Lookbook Live runway event, which was a pre-party for the main event tomorrow! Reminder: it will be from 1-6  at Lenox Square Mall, right outside of Macy’s. Event details here.   Oh, and PS – a little birdy told me Rihanna is coming too. What? (Well, technically I think she’s promoting her fragrance inside of Macy’s, but I think that counts as being able to say Rihanna is coming to our event. Right? Going with it.)

Thank you for stopping by today, and Happy Friday!!! xo

You’re Invited to A Gem of A Party

Kendra Scott Atlanta Event

 

I wanted to take a moment to invite my Atlanta readers and friends to come shop with Emily and I on November 5th at the Kendra Scott store in Buckhead!  Emily and I have been friends a few years and since she has always lived in New York or LA, we only see each other usually at fashion week! Luckily she happens to be in town for a few days next month so we decided we had to get the whole gang together for a night of bubbly, baubles and shopping! We’ve been behind the scenes for several weeks (months?) planning everything for this night, so I can assure you it will be fun!

We are super excited that Kendra Scott was happy to help host our evening! If you haven’t tried on her jewels before, you’ll be in for a treat! (The double ring I wear all the time is by Kendra Scott, as well as the studs I wear all the time.)  Not to mention, after I briefly interviewed Kendra at the grand opening of the Buckhead store this summer, I was blown away by her and her story. Did you know she actually started her jewelry line in 2002 out of her house and would carry her jewels (and toddler at the time) around to the local boutiques in Austin to sell her hand-crafted baubles? Now she has 19 stores, and her jewels are sold everywhere from Neimans to Nordstrom. If that’s not an inspiring story I don’t know what is! She told me in her own words that their charity policy is basically: yes. They’d love to help out. I seriously can’t think of a more amazing brand to partner with on this event, so I’m SO excited for everyone to come shop Kendra Scott and enjoy the evening.

Speaking of the evening… Emily and I will be putting together some head-to-toe outfit ideas for all of your holiday outfit needs with jewel suggestions of course. I know it’s a bit early today to start thinking about holiday attire, but trust me in a couple of weeks you’ll be ready to knock it off your to-do list! And in December you can thank us. :) Here is a link to fab gift ideas as well under $55 if you want to get a start on your holiday shopping. Also, we’ll be giving away GOODY BAGS to the first 20 attendees!! We’ve been working to stock these bags with items we truly love and enjoy using ourselves. We just wanted to have an extra little thank you to all of our friends, family, readers, blog friends, etc. Some of the bags are extra special and being reserved for extra special supporters. Hint: you might want to share the invite on facebook. :)

Make sure to RSVP to this event here, because there is limited space!!!! 

Did I mention there will be 15% off all your purchases this night? If you’ve had your eye on a Kendra Scott piece for a while now, this would be a great time to pull the trigger. (I’m hoping to finally scoop up this ring because I’ve been debating it for weeks now!  Also been eyeing this cuff and these earrings … clearly I’ll have some shopping decisions to make!)

I hope to see you there! Thank you for stopping by today! xo

Joyful

Escada Joyful PerfumeEscada Joyful Perfume

Escada Joyful Perfume

 

Have you tested the new Escada “Joyful” fragrance yet? I’ve never been a huge fragrance person, but I’m starting to think it’s just because I had not found the right one for me yet. The Escada team was nice enough to send over  a bottle of their new “joyful” fragrance and surprisingly I’ve been hooked! Once I read the description of the different notes in the scent it made a little more scents sense.  (Had to!) Peonies is one of the first references, and that happens to be my favorite flower. This perfume has more of a light pink peony smell, not a thick flowery peony smell like some of the darker peonies can have.

Bottom line – I’ve been using it almost every day for a couple of weeks now and I’m still loving it! (This is new territory for me because most scents start to get on my nerves after just a couple of hours!)

Make sure to sniff this one out folks. If you’re a peony fan like myself you might have a new scent! //  Available at Sephora.

Thank you for stopping by today! xo

20 Coats That Look Expensive (But Aren’t)

Gray Faux Fur Coat

I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but between faux fur, faux leather, and funky fuzzy frocks, today’s trendy outerwear can end up looking super cheap, even if it’s actually expensive! It’s probably one of my biggest pet peeves for fall.  I love my standby of “staple” outerwear pieces (pea coats in black, gray, etc), but many times in the colder months, all you see all day is everyone’s outerwear, so you want to have pretty and fun pieces too.  Unfortunately that’s where the questionable pieces can sneak in. I’d like one dose of fun outerwear, hold the kitsch please.

Behold, my picks for great looking, yet affordable outerwear. (Use social icons below each item to share/pin.)

I like to throw in a new fun piece of outerwear in the fall to supplement the staple pieces I’ve had for years.  A couple of years ago it was a fuzzy leopard print number that ended up being super-duper versatile. This past year it was the crazy gray fur pictured above and I got tons of compliments on it! (It is H&M. Shh!) This year I’m thinking a poncho might be in order…

Thank you for stopping by today. xo

Fall’s New Scarf

thick scarf - fall fashionscarf wrap asos fall fashion Chunky knit scarf

Top: Everlane c/o, Jeans: Spanx denim c/o fab’rik boutique Macon location (giving away a pair to you soon too!), Boots: Tory Burch, Scarf: Asos, Sunnies: Coastal.com, Bag: Valentino

A yummy soft scarf that can be worn as a wrap or chunky around the neck is just what the fashion doctor ordered for Fall 2014. This one happens to be Asos and is $34 shipped!  The material is super soft, and I’ve already been playing around with a few different ways to wear it. It’s definitely going to be on rotation the next few months!

In other news, I tested out the new Spanx denim, seen here, and I’m pretty obsessed. I’ve been wearing them with boots like every day. They are perfect for casual running around type days, which let’s be honest is always a good clothing category to have plenty in. I think the fact that Spanx can barely keep them in stock kind of speaks for itself. Go try some on and see for yourself! Your local fab’rik should probably have some in stock, and the Spanx leather look leggings too. If you’re a local reader, stay tuned because I’m giving away a pair from fab’rik on my facebook page soon! {Note: It will be available for pickup at either the Peachtree City, Emory, or Macon fab’rik location. Stay tuned to the book for more info!}

Thank you for stopping by today! xo
