Choked Up!

8 Sep

Chokers are back y’all! Well, they’ve been back for a while, but they’re catching on like wildfire. I’m old enough to remember when chokers were all the rage in the 90’s. They are definitely back with a vengeance~ as are the entire 90’s(good and bad).  Anyways, this past weekend, I received two chokers that I ordered from Forever 21 to wear with a specific outfit. I ordered black to be safe & burgundy hoping it would match the heels I was going to wear. It ended up matching perfectly, so I went with that one. Long story, short, I got so many compliments and messages about the chokers after I shared them on Instagram and Snapchat- especially after I shared the PRICE!!! Both chokers were under $10 total!  So without further ado…… here are links to both chokers. What I love most about these chokers, is that they are dainty and appear to wrap around the neck. I think they are so cute and bring an element of style to a look without overpowering it like a large ribbon type of choker could.

Rocksbox ROCKS!!!!

3 Jun

I am obsessed with Rocksbox!!!!!!  I have signed up with plenty of subscriptions boxes, and this is by far my favorite!  Rocksbox is a monthly jewelry subscription box that arrives in your mailbox each month and has hand picked (by a stylist) pieces chosen to fit your tastes. When you sign up there is a questionnaire where you choose all the styles that you love and from there, they make specific boxes just for you! The cool thing about Rocksbox is that it’s a loan box, so if you happen to not like something, you can just send it back for a different piece. Think of it as the Netflix of jewelry- you can keep your pieces as long or a little as you’d like and once you send them back, you get new pieces!!! All for only $19 with a $10 credit going toward the purchase of any pieces that you can’t live without. Each box includes three pieces (necklace,earrings,ring etc.) and if you fall in love with any of them you CAN purchase them after the $10 is applied. My first box arrived today and I am SO impressed with the pieces, they are all MY STYLE! I’ve got to be honest, I had no idea just how accurate the styles would be, but I am blown away….these are all pieces I would buy! I look forward to my next box, but I don’t want to send these pieces back anytime soon!!!! The struggle is real! I want to keep everything!

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!
