Puffer Vests

Tags

, , , ,

I am loving this fall look.  Puffer vests have been around for awhile, but with the trend, there are so many patterns now available to create fun looks.   I love how they can be dressed up and chic and then super casual paired with plaid or a jean shirt.   My favorite is to pair a knit sweater or with a different pattern underneath to create unique textures for your outfit!

Amazing Disney Wedding Cake

Ever heard of cake projection mapping?  Good, neither have I, but man does this look cool!  It’s basically a white wedding cake with lighted images projected onto it.

It’s all part of the Wishes Collection over at the Disney Weddings website where all your fairy tale dreams can come true at a starting price of $12,000.  Dreams do come at a cost!

Fall Essentials

, , , , , ,

Fall is upon us and the air is crisp.  Before we store away our fun summer clothes and drag out the drab chunky winter clothes, let’s make sure we have the fun essentials needed to brighten up our fall/winter wardrobe!

1. Infinity scarf – a totally necessary accessory that is not only practical but goes with any outfit!

2.  Louis Vuitton Neverfull Tote – Just yea. Get it.  This LV isn’t about style, it’s about utility.  This bad boy is a classic and will last you decades to come.

3. Chambray shirt – are these out of style yet?  No?  Great.  LOVE chambray shirts, you can wear them with a skirt, under a sweater or over a tank.  They just go with EVERYTHING!

4. Ankle boots – Yes yes, of course I know about tall riding boots, but I also love the ankle boots look.  Paired with some skinny jeans or leggings and you got yourself one chic outfit!  Don’t forget a top of course!

fall75.  Puffy vest – Too cold for just a long sleeved?  Not cold enough for a winter jacket?    Puffy vest to the rescue!  Hey and it looks goooood!  I love this look for layering!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects

How long does your regular nail polish usually last you?   5 days?  Max?  I know mine starts chipping after a few days.  Well have no fear, Sally Hansen is coming to the rescue!

I may be a little late to the trend, but last week, I tried Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects Nail Polish strips for the first time.  So easy to put on!  They give you a few different sizes so you will be able to fit them onto your nails no matter how large or small they may be.  Once they’re on, you sort of file around the “sticker” and the excess comes off smoothly.

I have to say, doing my nails was sort of relaxing for the first time.  No drying time and no hard focus to make sure the paint goes on even.  Took 10 mins and voila…done!  No drying!

So far it’s been a week and they still look great.  Just a few minor chips and the regular nail growth.  They were 9.99 at CVS (sort of pricey), but I was able to get more on Amazon for about $4 bucks!  Totally worth it.  The downside is the lack of options.  At least for me, some of the designs were sort of meh.  I’m not a fan of skulls or butterflies on my nails, but if you look hard, you can find more subtle and contemporary designs.  Mine was called “The Bold Rush”  It’s a gold to purple ombre.

Lauren Conrad’s New Bridesmaid Line

Tags

, , , , ,

So everybody’s (maybe not) favorite MTV reality show alumni Lauren Conrad is doing pretty well post-“Hills” with her own fashion line, Paper Crown.  With her own wedding coming up, “LC” has designed her very own bridesmaids’ line!

I actually love her style.  It’s very simple and clean.  Lots of pastels and nudes.  Her bridesmaid line actually falls in pretty close to that.  There are some hits and a few misses, but price-wise, I think some of the dresses look a lot cheaper.  I guess you’re buying the “name”, but when it comes to bridesmaids…who cares.  It’s all about the BRIDE! hehe

Check out my hits and misses:

LOVE! Whimsical and love the soft colors.  (Hannah dress $298)

HATE.  Maybe for a casual summer BBQ, but shapeless and way overpriced.  (Jeannie Dress $220)br09_navy_front

I feel like this would only look good on a certain body type.   Otherwise, anyone else would look like a 4 tiered wedding cake.  (Meghan dress $325)

My fave! So elegant and romantic.  I would totally be happy wearing this as a bridesmaid and then shorten it to wear again!  (Maura Dress $325)br13_front

And just for kicks, here’s what I had my ‘maids wear at my wedding this past June…different variations of Ivy and Aster social dresses in Coral.

Lately, I’ve been obssessed with Ted Baker, a British clothing retail company.  You can find a lot of their stuff at Nordstrom’s.  I am just in love with their palate of beautiful pastels.  Makes me almost forget this never-ending god awful Chicago winter.   Almost.  Now look at the pretties!!!
