#1. Pleated Geo Button Jacket ($29.80) – This unique jacket is feminine and also edgy with the geo buttons. I’d continue the juxtaposition of feminine + edgy with the accessories, using these wide calf harness boots ($42.80) and pearl spiked rings ($6.80). Outfit-wise there’s a lot you can do. I’d probably opt for dark denim and simple tee.

#2. Sorry Not Sorry Raglan Sweatshirt ($22.80) – I love this sweatshirt. I’ve been known to use and abuse the #sorrynotsorry hashtag from time to time, so I would totally rock this. Since if I were wearing a sweatshirt I wouldn’t want to bother with a bunch of jewelry, I thought these studded hightops ($39.80) were the perfect pairing with this sassy sweater. The “Rad” mirror compact ($3.80) was just an extra bit of fun I thought was cute.

#3. Bold Striped Hi-Low Skirt ($19.80) – I never jumped on the high-low skirt trend before, but I would for this skirt. I love the stripes, and I like that this skirt shows a little bit of leg (but not too much). I don’t like showing a lot of skin in general, but a little peek is kind of fun. ;) As we get into cooler weather I could see this looking cute with either pumps or heeled boots and a blazer. For this post I accessorized the skirt with these multi-tonal bangles ($4.80) and a fun red umbrella ($9.80).

#4. Spotted Textured Combo Dress ($24.80) – The first of 2 “LBDs” I picked. I love the black on black texture of the bodice of this dress, and the floaty chiffon skirt. Sure it’s a little bare for winter, but you could easily put on some tights and a sweater with this cute little frock. For the accessories, I kept with the cat theme and chose this awesome cat charm bracelet ($7.80) and super cute cat iPhone case ($8.80).

#5. Elegant Draped Fit & Flare Dress ($32.80) – I just loved the flattering drapes of this cute LBD. It’s a classic style that you could wear to a variety of occasions. I’d wear it with some tights and black booties and a little shell cardigan for holiday parties. Accessory-wise I wanted to glam it up a bit since it’s a basic black dress. I picked a very much on-trend gold metallic ponytail cuff ($3.80) and a studded wrap bracelet ($8.80).

Avon Product of the Week: BCA Collection 2013

avon logo 1024x191 Avon Product of the Week: BCA Collection 2013

I really wanted to share the Avon Breast Cancer Awareness items for 2013. One of the reasons I really wanted to share this collection is because 100% of the net profits are donated (in other words, they aren’t making any profit – they’re just covering the cost of making the items). The items are all very affordable, and Avon tells you right there exactly what amount from your purchase is getting donated.

Pink Shoes Make Me Happy

Today, my dear Phyrra posted about purple shoes on her blog, and it made me SO happy! I can’t even really put my finger on why. But I love purple shoes. And so here’s my inspired post…about pink shoes! Take a lookie!

Gingerkitty Designs Earrings

gingerkittyearrings1 Gingerkitty Designs Earrings

I just wanted to show you guys the most gorgeous earrings!! These were handmade by the amazingly talented Tracey Barker of Gingerkitty Designs. I ordered a ring, and she included these stunning earrings! Isn’t that sweet? The reason why I am especially ecstatic about the earrings is because I am normally not an earring person. I have ridiculously sensitive ears and almost every pair of earrings (including high end ones) hurt my ears and I end up having to take them off within a few minutes of putting them on. But these don’t hurt my ears AT ALL! I wore them an entire day and it was fine. They’re so comfortable and so lightweight and GORGEOUS.

The nail polish I requested for the ring (and thus also the surprise matching earrings) is Orly Lunar Eclipse. Lunar Eclipse is one of my favorite polishes ever! It’s blue with blue shimmer that flashes purple. What’s not to love? Here’s a sort of blurry shot that shows a bit of the purple shimmer:

Tracey is so sweet and her work is GORGEOUS. I tried to photograph my ring, but I couldn’t get an accurate photo. It matches the earrings, except the setting is silver-tone and these earrings are more brass. If you dig these, they’re the “Lever-Back” earrings. The ring I got is this style.

Do you have any of Tracey’s designs? They’re so so so pretty! And quite affordable too! My ring was about $25, which is a really good price for such a pretty handmade piece of jewelry.
