East Vs. West: Boots

October 21, 2014

Boots, leather and plaid - there is no better combo! I absolutely love this long babydoll plaid top paired with my faux leather leggings and black boots. The darker colors in the plaid top go great with black, and I envision wearing it with jeans, as well. These boots pair perfectly with my beloved black leggings, and the low stack heel make them perfect for all occasions (work and weekend). I am all about hats this fall and this one is a fantastic option (and super reasonable in price!) I love the steel blue color, it ended up matching my top perfectly.

Make sure to check out all of the other fab looks incorporating boots and booties for the fall season:

Marshalls Grand Opening: Hollywood

October 17, 2014

Guess what all 8 of these looks have in common? I am sporting #fabfound Marshalls items in all of them! 

I believe that there is nothing better than finding incredible designer fashion at a fraction of the price. I love the hunt, I love finding something unexpected and I especially love high-quality for less. This is why I am an avid Marshalls and TJ Maxx shopper, and a member of Project Fab! (Read more about Project Fab here). Whether I am looking for seasonal decor, a new pair of leather booties or I just have money to spend, I can always find something that I have to have at Marshalls.

I am so excited to let you know that there is a brand new Marshalls in town (literally)! Mark your calendar for October 22, when Marshalls opens a brand new Hollywood store on 7013 Hollywood Blvd. This new store will be stocked with brand-name and designer merchandise every single week. Nothing is better than a bright, fresh new store. This one even has a shoe megashop which will include designer footwear. I don't know if my wallet can handle the excitement. 

Want to come celebrate during the Grand Opening? Stop by Marshalls Hollywood on October 22 from 8:00am - 10:00pm. There will be giveaways, gift card prizes and more! With over 10,000 new items arriving to the Hollywood store every week, it’s like entering a whole new store with every visit. I can't wait to get over there to hunt down some amazing designer finds!

Moments of Chic

October 16, 2014

Piperlime Gathered Shirt Dress in Navy Floral c/o | Lulu*s Rhinestone Necklace c/o | Deux Lux Dark Green Crossbody Bag via Marshalls (similar option and similar option & color) | Piperlime Steve Madden Grrand Booties in Stone Leather c/o | Sole Society Aviators | Topshop Lipstick - Lips in Wicked

There are a few online retailers that I consistently find myself going back to, and Piperlime is always at the top of that list. I love the mix of high-end items and budget friendly ones. I always creep around Olivia Palermo's picks (she has amazing style & taste) and I can always find something on sale. When they reached out to me about participating in their Moments of Chic campaign, I leaped at the opportunity to feature more of their products on my blog.

Piperlime hand selected this look for me, and they seriously did an incredible job. When I opened the box, I immediately put this dress and these booties on and walked around the living room giddily modeling for John. This look is as close to my "signature look" as they could get!  There is nothing I feel more comfortable in than a chiffon printed dress and heeled booties.

This is the kind of dress that works for almost every occasion. It is seasonally versatile with its long sleeves and dark floral print. I could pair it with tights, throw a fur vest over it, or wear it on its own. I plan to wear this to work, but it is also the perfect weekend daytime dress with flats or boots - and can be easily dressed up with some pumps or heeled booties (like these gorgeous Steve Madden ones). I cannot wait to wear this dress over and over again!

The Ultimate Wardrobe Makeover

October 15, 2014

To me, nothing is more fun than getting lost in daydreams of “what ifs.” One of the ones I find myself coming back to is the, ”What if I won the lottery and found myself millions of dollars richer?” I find myself lost in all the amazing possibilities. Would I donate to charity? Would I share the wealth with my family? Would I invest? Travel the world? Throw a party? The options are endless and it is certainly fun to dream up the most wild & fun ways to spend mucho dinero!

This daydream might seem a little unrealistic, but what if I toned down my hypothetical “winnings” to $1,000? It makes it a bit harder to decide between a splurge and an investment in the future, doesn’t it? One thing I know for sure is that some of that money would go directly towards a shopping spree & closet revamp, because lets be honest… I love clothes and I love shopping!

1000 wardrobe makeover

For this hypothetical wardrobe makeover, I would invest in pieces that are timeless and classic – items that I know will stand the test of time and always make a statement. Items that help me to look and feel my best, like a classic handbag and some gorgeous pumps (maybe two pairs). Another addition would have to be an LBD. To stay feeling fantastic in it, I know I can indulge in Progresso soup; because it helps me feel full, but stay slim and trim. With 40 delicious flavors at 100 calories or less per serving, I know I will fit in this little LBD for years to come! 

Thanks to Progresso and the ProgressOh! Contest, you have the chance to win $1,000!
