OOTD: Rain Drops & Color POP!

Hey There!

Today I planned to run a few errands on my day off, but the rain came down in sunny Nassau, Bahamas.

Well... a girl has to do, what she has to do! So I pulled a few vintage pieces out of my closet and headed out in the rain!

Here's what I wore...

Sequined Graphic T-Shirt - GERI C.  New York 

Faux Leather Piped Jeans Jacket - Avenue XXI (local clothing store)

#trendalert! Blazers and Jackets are perfect for the season, not only do they keep you warm but they easily transition a summer outfit into a fall/winter outfit.

Purple Straight-Leg Jeans 

#trendalert! Colored jeans add a subtle pop of color to an outfit whiles keeping the outfit on trend for Fall/Winter. These jeans are high waisted which gives the pants a little more style and I cuffed the legs which creates a little more personality!

#trendalert! Black Studded Oxford Flats -
Check out my YouTube video featuring these flats ==> FALL/WINTER SHOE HAUL 2012 

Oversize Stud Bangles - Girls will be Girls (local accessories store)

Lime Green Clutch - Got it from My Momma! (S/O to my Mother for having GOOD taste!)

I completed my outfit with this green clutch to set off my purple pants, as purple and green are complementary colors (two colors which are directly opposite each other on the color wheel).

Full Outfit:

The shirt and jacket I wore in this OOTD are both about a year old and today was my first time wearing them! I always felt I needed something new to wear with the tee or the jacket... when all along I had the "somethings" right in my closet! 
This look is all about layering and color play! Don't be afraid to mix your pieces and colors when it comes to Fashion!
I hope this look inspires your next outfit! Remember, "always dress to express yourself."

Hey Beautiful!

Are you like me, in LOVE with designer handbags, shoes, and clothes... but HATE the larger than life price tag?! #problem!

Well luckily for us there is such a blessing called "designer inspired"! Noo, not the knock off or bootleg version, but a totally different designer, brand, make and model that looks exactly like or very similar to that designer piece you and I both desire!

Here's my first post on SPLURGE? or STEAL!!

One of my favorite FASHIONISTAS is pop star Rihanna, and I fell in love with these simple open toe sandals she wore a few times this year. So I did a little Fashion investigation... and found out the sandals wore Manolo Blahnik's - Chaos.

Through my research, I also found out that these sandals retail for $695!!!!!!! Whoa!

Manolo Blahnik Chaos $695 sold at BARNEYS NEW YORK

Luckily for You and I, I found a "designer inspired" replica of the Chaos...

Anne Michelle Enzo - 01 Open Toe Ankle Strap Sandals

WaLa!!! These open toe ankle strap sandals retail for $22.70 on! How about that for a STEAL OF A DEAL?!


So I'm sure we're all aware of the heel-less wedge trend that bust out onto the fashion scene this year and totally dominated!! Thank Lady Ga-Ga for making that strange looking shoe popular!

For instance, check out these heels that I use to call the Mary Jane heel-less wedges, and later found out they're the Jeffrey Campbell - Night Walk.

Jeffrey Campbell Night Walk in Black Pebble $168.00

These babies can be found online for a price to the tune of $168.00! Mmm hmm $168.00! I love these shoes, but I don't know if I'm "ABOUT THAT PRICE". So I was VERY happy when I found a "designer inspired" replica to the Night Walks...

Goddess-02 Leatherette Heel Less Mary Jane Curved Wedge

Once again... these heel-less wedges retails for $35. 50 on! So.... splurge? or STEAL?

I got both "designer inspired" heels for the STEAL price and I'm very happy with my purchases!

I hope this post will save you a few pennies too!!
