Bloggers LOVE Sequins!

Hey Dolls!!

How do you feel about sequins?  I for one love them!  Call me crazy but I think they can be worn at any time.  Adding sequins to anything just makes whatever you’re wearing feel extra glamorous and hey, we all need to some glam in our lives, right Dolls? 

As 2014 quickly comes to a close, the Holiday Season is upon us.  Always keeping fashion in mind, the lovely Farrah from Estrella Fashion Report called a few of us bloggers out to come up with Holiday Inspired Look that incorporated sequins and I gladly accepted the fashionable challenge.  This fashionable challenge is also a collaboration with some of my favorite blogger boos in the Tampa Bay area.  So here goes...Bloggers LOVE Sequins!!

Farrah Estrella from Estrella Fashion Report looks darling in this Garnet Sequined Lane Bryant Dress!
Andra Rich from Knick Knacker is serving edgy glamour with her Soft Blush Sequined Cardigan and Edgy Accessories!
Natasha Bernard from Fashionably Fabulous is giving you soft and sexy glam in this Smoke Gray French Connection Romper
I decided on some oldies, but goodies to pull off my Holiday Inspired Sequinned Look, I guess I'll call it Old Hollywood/New Hollywood.  Shopping your closet is ALWAYS a good idea Dolls!

Bootie Love!

Hey Dolls!!

It's officially boot[ie] season now that the weather is forcing us (even here in Florida) to put our open toed shoes up for a while.  I mean hey, I for one don't mind sporting boots and booties all year round but depending on the style and texture that isn't always feasible.  Fashion Problems. *sigh*

I have been continuously been making it a mission of mine to add more non-traditional and unique pieces to my growing wardrobe.  While browsing on the web, I started looking for a cute pair of booties to add to my collection this year and I came across so many fab finds. 

Now Dolls, you know I am a girl on a particular budget so I have to always keep that in mind while shopping, but it doesn't hurt to look, OK DROOL at some beautiful shoes beyond my desired price point.  I shop often, so one thing that I do is look for alternatives often.  Kind of in a Spend vs. Splurge way. 

With so many styles to choose from in the ankle bootie category alone, I decided to share some of favorites with you.  Check them out Dolls!Untitled #14Untitled #15
 
I think I have at least one FAVORITE in every category.  So what do you think Dolls? Do any of these booties tickle your fancy?  Let me know, and Happy Bootie Shopping!

Coated STATEMENT!

Hey Dolls!!

You guys have heard me whine about how living in Florida doesn’t allow much room for Winter and Fall Fashion right?  Well because of that I have come to LOVE Trench Coats.  The Trench Coat has become my favorite "Go-To" piece for layering in this climate.  Cut to my favorite trench coat in my collection!
I found this beautiful Red Trench Coat back in 2010 when I made a trip to St. Augustine (Florida) and went to an outlet mall there.  I must say that I’m so glad I decided to buy it.  It definitely makes a fabulous statement!  No matter when I wear it, I’m complimented or asked about where I found it.  I’d say it’s definitely a winner!!
What I’m Wearing:  Kenneth Cole Trench Coat/Thrifted Earrings & Necklace/Ring via Burlington Coat Factory/Tory Burch Purse/Steve Madden Sandals/Gucci Sunnies
As far as Statement Coats go, this is mine, well my FAVORITE so far in my collection anyway.  I would say that I have one more "Statement Coat" in my collection and I would love to add to it.  I have to be careful because as much as I LOVE statement coats, I don’t love them enough to make a healthy investment in something I won’t get any use out of.  
Now Dolls, of course I couldn't leave without sharing a Statement Coat that I am currently crushing.  I have had my eye on one I fell in LOVE with this year when I first saw it.  Tell me what you think.  

This Ecote Asymmetrical Blanket Coat from Urban Outfitters...I just love it and I may have to break down and buy it, but at $229 that is pricey for me because I live in Florida.  I’ll definitely be checking on it regularly to see when it goes on sale.  I have to laugh at myself on this selection because as you guys may have noticed, this coat is RED, LOL!!  I can't help myself, I just love the color RED.  But at least its not solid RED.  Now I love the color but you have to know how to add items in your wardrobe that have more depth to them if you wear the same color frequently.
Well Dolls, that's it for today.  For now I'll be waiting for Urban Outfitters to drop the price of that beautiful coat.  Until then, I'll be making a statement in my beautiful RED Kenneth Cole Trench Coat!
