Cannes Red Carpet stunners!

13 May

The 68th annual Cannes film festival started with a BANG this evening in Cannes, France.  There were many glamorous looks as expected but two were absolutely show stopping!  I must get right to the pictures….

Lupita Nyong’o is a goddess in green Gucci.

Oh em geeeee the flower detail, the plunge neckline, the pleating, the draping! Absolutely amazing!  Her beautiful oversized ballerina bun and gorgeous winged liner and purple pout made this look all the better. BRAVO Lupita!

Wedding Heels (Under $100)

7 May

CALLING ALL BRIDES TO BE>>>> Wedding season is right around the corner and if you’re a bride to be, you may already know that searching for the right wedding heel can be a daunting task.  I have been asked numerous times about my wedding heels so I thought I’d share them with you and a few more styles that I love- all under $100.  My 4th wedding anniversary is fast approaching and I still remember the last-minute STRESS of finding the right heel. That all ended when I stumbled upon this picture on Pinterest! nina  I had to have these heels!  After searching I found out they were by Nina shoes. It was a breath of fresh air finding a brand that had so many wedding heels at decent prices. Your wedding heels should accent your dress without stealing the show and the price shouldn’t break the bank! Nina shoes also come in a variety of colors so they’re perfect for bridesmaids or for the bride looking to wear a pop of color on her special day. Hopefully this post will help you find your perfect heel. Cheers! And congrats on your upcoming nuptials! Below are some of my favorite wedding heels starting from lowest heel height to highest.  Nina Culver Heel Height 2.5″ nina culver Nina Forbes Heel Height 3″ Nina forbes Nina Vinnie Heel Height 3.5″ Nina Vinnie nina vinnie back Nina Vianna Heel Height 3.5″ Nina vianna Nina Electra (my wedding heels) Heel Height 4″ Nina Electra Nina Cabaret Heel Height 4″ nina cabaret Nina Cosmos Heel Height 4″ Nina cosmos

Industrial chic Just got Better!

22 Apr

If you follow me on any social media platform, it is no secret that I have a small obsession with Giles & Brother railroad spike bracelets.  I have so many styles of jewelry that I wear from dainty to colorful to bold, but my all time love would be modern/minimal pieces.  The Giles & Brother railroad spikes are super minimal with a bit of edge. The railroad spikes come in three sizes Original(thick) Skinny(medium)and Mini(thin) my preference has always been the “skinny”size  but I recently ordered the mini and I love it, it’s super dainty and delicate. How could these bracelets possibly get any better you ask???? Well, they are now available in precious metals!!! YES!!!!  If you’re a jewelry connoisseur you can rock a SOLID GOLD G&B bracelet!!!  These bracelets are also unisex which is very cool!

G&B bracelets are available in different finishes including brass, hematite, yellow gold tone, rose gold tone and silver tone. Sterling silver is also an option and solid gold(rose & yellow).
