Mint Condition

top: Forever 21. necklace: Forever 21  (similar). jeans: Express. heels: YSL c/o Saks. watch: Nixon. Bracelets: (left to right) Forever 21, David Yurman, c/o N&K Designs.

Christmas came real early for me this year. I entered an Instagram competition with Saks Fifth Avenue a few weeks ago and WON $1000 Gift Card! It was one of the most surprising and jaw dropping experiences ever to find out I had won. But once it got down to making my purchase or purchases, I freaked out. As many of you know, I’m a woman who maximizes her purchases and never splurges. I had no idea what to do, but at the same time I did. I wanted a new pair of shoes! After all those steal finds, it was my turn to finally purchase the splurge! Walking into the Saks shoe department was like walking into shoe heaven, no joke. All the brands I had dreamed of owning, were there at my fingertips ready to be told “I’m taking you home!” After trying on pair after pair, nothing made my heart go bonkers like these heels. Immediately when I put them on, I knew these were the ones. So I got them and I don’t want to take them off. Us women and our shoes….

Now in the spirit of giving I’ve teamed up with Nani and Kaki Lopez from N&K Designs to give away one of their neon rhinestone bracelets (like the one I’m wearing above)! They’re so fun and just the perfect thing to make your arm candy sparkle. Want to win? Here’s the catch:

A Carrie Bradshaw Moment

tee: eBay find. skinnies: H&M (similar). heels: Zara. cargo jacket: Forever 21. clutch: Target. pin: handmade (up on Shop the Closet this week!)

It’s Monday. The perfect day to really get up and say “let’s do something!” I found this shirt randomly a few years ago from an Australian seller on eBay. It’s been such a conversation piece everytime I wear it. But this time, I wanted to do something different.

My beautiful friend Elisa from Live Play Love made me this awesome flower pin! We’ll be posting them on my Shop the Closet page this week in an assortment of colors. Majority of the proceeds will be to help raise funds for a Bahamas Missions trip this summer. Isn’t the pin amazing? Once I pinned it to my cargo jacket, I had a serious Carrie Bradshaw moment. I knew it was the perfect thing to match with my tee and colored skinnies. Let’s not forget my new Zara color block heels and Target clutch. Remember these? I couldn’t resist buying a second pair once they debuted on Zara’s website. I mean… they’re perfect.

And of course, we can’t set aside the craziness of my outfit without showing my true crazy personality. As you can tell in the last picture, that is me. Crazy ole me. On my car.

splurge vs steal has done it again. I can’t believe my eyes. This means I could have an almost IDENTICAL pair of Giuseppes in my closet? WHAT! Sign me up. I’m all in.

Splurge – Giuseppe Zanotti $695 VS Steal – GoJane $35.20

**p.s. if you can’t find your size, they’re also available at  here.

But wait. It doesn’t stop here.

Besides the slight color switch, you can’t beat that price tag. Hello bright shoes for the feets. You’re a perfect statement for the summer.

Leather & Neon.

Coming out of the Easter weekend where everyone is dressed in pastels, linen, and bright colors… I’ve decided to do this week a little differently.

Today I’m wearing an oatmeal colored tee from Zara (similar here), zipper-at-the-ankle-jeans from H&M (similar here), and Zara heels. The bracelet is from Forever 21, but really old. (I found this really cool one at ASOS for you.)

I would call this look the Pastel Rebellion? The pants of wax? It’s a little bit Ashley and a little bit of Rock-n-Roll? Or I could just call it “Leather & Neon.” hence the already given title to the post. Whatever it is, it doesn’t change that I love everything about this outfit. The detailing of the gold zippers, combined with the neon and snake prints south of my ankles, plus the tee shirt that looks plain Jane until you see my shoulders (and you’re like WOAH! Leather accents!!!)- it all falls together just right.

side note: that was my reaction when I found it, so I’m guessing it might be yours too… *wishful thinking*

This is me, side noting once again: My boyfriend Adrian tagged along with me in this shoot (He’ll say I made him… which he could be right, but I’m not telling). He couldn’t resist being behind the camera, so when we were finished, he jumped right in and played the “suave, macho man” part. Not too shabby. I laughed so much with this collage that Janelle put together!
