Black Swan

 Bodysuit: ASOS, Skirt: BCBGMaxazria, Shoes: CL, Necklace & Earings: Forever21

Halloween is my favorite holiday!!! I love dressing up but this year I decided to skip on spending $50-$100 on a cheaply made costume that I will never wear again and create a costume using things I already own. I wanted to add big feather wings but couldn't find it at any of the Halloween stores near me. The only items purchased for this costume were the white paste makeup and the fake eyelashes that I got at Rite Aid. The eye makeup was done with a black liquid liner, eyeshadow and it took me about 20 minutes to complete. 

Have safe Halloween weekend!!

Leather and Prints

Top: H&M (recent), Pants: H&M (recent), Shoes: CL, Sunnies: Dolce & Gabbana, Watch: NY&CO
Bracelets: Oia Jules, H&M and Oxford Trunk

I wore this outfit to a baby shower this past Sunday. I LOVE these pants they fit amazing, are super comfy and are the perfect color for fall. Leather is everywhere this season and you don't have to spend an arm and leg for it (these are currently at H&M) . There are leather pants, jackets with leather sleeves, t-shirts with leather cap sleeves and dresses with leather details on it.  How do you feel about this leather trend?

This outfit was inspired by the Stuart Weitzman Campaign video seen here. Although I wore this outfit to a baby shower, it did run well into the night and my sequined shoes were perfect for "Walking After Midnight".


P.S. It was really difficult to get good pictures for this post because it was soooo windy. The leaves and my peplum top were flying everywhere. Check out the  blooper pics below LOL

Celebrity Inspired Look: Jessica Biel

Top: Gap Outlet, Pants: Wetseal, Shoes: Ellen Tracy via Loehmanns, Blazer: Zara (Old), Sunnies: Marc Jacobs, Belt: Old from my closet

I love finding celeb styles that I can re-create using pieces I already have in my closet. The only thing missing is the bag but I found a similar one here. I am sure that if you visit your local TJ Maxx or Marshalls you can find a similar bag for less. Jessica Biel always has that casual yet put together clean look that I love. This outfit was perfect for running around on my usual Saturday routine, taking my princess to dance class, grocery shopping, taking the dog to the groomers and everything else on the list of a busy mom.

The F word

Top: NFL via Target, Blazer: OVA via Century21, Pants: H&M, Shoes: Via Spiga, Sunnies: H&M, Earings: Forever21, Necklace: Very old.

Yeah I said it FOOTBALL!!! Everyone that knows me, knows that I am anti jerseys and sports wear, however, my fiance is big on all sports and at my house, ESPN is on ALL day on sundays.  I couldn't help but get sucked into the excitement of it all. I still don't like Jerseys or sports wear but when we get invited to watch a game at a sports bar, friends house or an actual live game at the stadium I want to look like myself.  So I put together this outfit that will look perfect at a bar, friends house or at the stadium. Of course I would change the shoes to a pair of flats if I were going to a more relaxed setting like a friends house or the stadium. The idea is to keep your style in mind all while being your favorite team's #1 fan. With that said GO GIANTS!!

Trendy skirt for less

                                      Zara $26                                                     Forever21 $13

I saw the Forever21 skirt on a recent trip to the mall and immediately remembered the Zara skirt I'd seen online. I am loving this frilled skirt trend and have been thinking of getting one and at $12.80 I couldn't go wrong. I have to say the skirt looks A LOT better in person, I absolutely love it and can't wait to wear it. I'm glad the temps will be above normal next week, it will be perfect for debuting this awesome skirt. Stay tuned to see how I style it.

Here is another skirt from Zara in the same style  $89

Faux Fur Love

Top:Gift (Old) Vest: Vintage Havanna (Current Via Loehmanns), Jeans: James Jeans (via Loehmanns), Hat: Forever21, Watch: NY&CO, Bracelet with Cross: Oxford Trunk, Other Bracelets: H&M

I wore this out to a much needed girls night with some of my favorite girls. I fell in love with this vest the moment I walked into loehmanns and I knew I just had to have it. Loehmanns is one of those stores you have to really look but with some patience and a good eye you can come out of there with some amazing stuff for a steal. My favorite purchase from loehmanns happened three years ago right after I gave birth. I found a gorgeous Marchesa evening gown for a STEAL! I felt amazing when I wore but it felt even more amazing knowing it was such a bargain.
