Neutrals

I don't usually wear a lot of neutral colors as I love print and color too much but I must say I like a neutral look every once in a while. The best thing about neutrals is that you can throw on all different shades of neutrals and come out with a chic outfit.

In the Trenches

Happy Friday!

My weeks seem to fly by, am I the only one? Soon it'll be my birthday and I won't know what to do with myself.

Oddly enough I want to make my birthday a big deal this year. Usually, I just make my immediate family make a big deal of my birthday but this year I would love for my friends to join in the festivities. 

My change in attitude to celebrate my birthday may or may not be due to finding an awesome birthday dress potential!

Flatforms

This post is sort of a 2-in-1 as it's an outfit post but also a save or splurge as these clearly are almost an exact replica of the newest blogger "it" shoe by Stella McCartney but at a MUCH more budget-friendly price at only $34.95 from H&M vs the $995 price tag of the originals.

As I pride myself on being a budget fashionista I instantly had to snatch these up. 

Stores like H&M and Zara are great options for fast fashion that you want to try but not fully commit to as I much rather spend the hefty $1000 price tag of the Stella originals on a classic pair of designer pumps or great bag that will truly stand the test of time!

Emilio Pucci

So I have this fabulous friend (Hi, Laura!) that has this fabulous job at this little company you may have heard of called Net-a-Porter (insert sarcasm), well this same fab friend was gracious enough to invite me to the very exclusive Net-a-Porter sample sale yesterday and I scored this AHHH-MAZING Emilio Pucci belt that retails for $1,600 for a mere $150!

Yes, I totally understand that under normal circumstances $150 for a belt is quite the penny but this is Emilio Pucci we're talking about, and the belt really talked to me when I saw it and as you can see I immediately ran home to style it because quite frankly I am so in love with the details and look of it.

What do y'all think? Do you resist when special pieces call to you or do you take the plunge?
