Designer Handbag Hack

Ok, confession time.  I LOVE handbags.  Like, seriously love them.  But what I don’t love, are the crazy high price points.  And while I can score pretty much anything for a good deal (it’s my hidden talent!), I’ve found that it’s nearly impossible to get an authentic designer bag at a discount.

So I couldn’t have been more thrilled to discover Trendlee.  Not only do they buy and sell gently used designer bags (and I’m talking all of the current coveted brands and styles), but they authenticate everything, so you never have to worry about whether or not you’re getting the real deal.  I mean seriously, how gorgeous is this pink Prada?  And I swear, if I didn’t know better, I would think that it’s brand new.  It is in absolutely flawless condition.  So be sure to swing by their site to check out their inventory (they add new bags all the time!).  AND be sure to enter code: ALLDOLLEDUP at checkout to save 5% off of your order!!!

There are few things I love more than a good leopard print.  And since you guys went so nuts over this top when I posted it on Instagram last weekend, I wanted to make sure and bring it to the blog.  This top is seriously so fantastic and is quickly becoming one of my very favorite things in my m closet.  So if you are looking for a fun statement top to add to your wardrobe this spring, you can find all of the details below!

Print Mixing

I love that it’s perfectly acceptable to mix different prints together (thank you Jenna Lyons!).  I mean really, a couple of years ago, I never would have thought to wear leopard and tribal prints together. In the same outfit.  But for whatever reason, it works.  And perhaps more importantly? It’s FUN.  And in my book, fashion should always be fun, don’t you think?

Cardi

I’ve been really into cardigan sweaters lately.  They are so easy to slip on over a silky blouse for work, or over a t-shirt on the weekend.  I am also finding myself drawn to the slightly longer-length boyfriend fit this season.  Because let’s be honest, anything cozy or gray seems to be on heavy rotation in my closet right now!

Bloomingdales Friends and Family

It’s that time of year again!  The Bloomingdales Friends and Family event is going on right now through April 6th-which means you can save 20% off of everything in the store (use code FF14 at checkout)!  And because there are so many amazing things to choose from, I wanted to share both my neutral and neon picks for the Spring season with all of you.  Pretty good stuff, don’t you think??
Bloomingdales Friends and Family
1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6. | 7. | 8. | 9. | 10. | 11. (here and here) | 12.
Luckily for me, this sale also just happens to coincide with the arrival of my 2013 annual bonus, so I am thinking of splurging on one of the handbags above.  But before I make my decision, I’d love to know, which one is your favorite?  The neon Kate Spade?  Or the neutral Rebecca Minkoff?
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!!!

Glam

I’ve learned a lot about my own personal style since I started on the journey of writing this blog.  I’ve learned that I like pants and jeans.  A lot.  I only like to wear dresses and skirts in the warm summer months.  I hate tights. But I really like button down shirts.  I love jewelry and accessories, but even though I own a lot of fun costume jewelry (and good jewelry too), I find that I tend to gravitate towards the same pieces on a daily basis.  And while I probably dress up a little more than most of my friends, I would still define my style as casual.  I’ve learned that glam isn’t necessarily a go-to look for  me, but it is definitely one that I enjoy every now and again-especially when I feel like changing things up during the winter months.  And I have found that perhaps the easiest, no-fuss way to achieve a glam look (while still maintaining a casual vibe), is pairing a  faux (of course!) fur vest, a pair of over-the-knee boots, some chic gold jewelry, and a bold red lip back to a simple sweater and favorite pair of jeans.  A glam look that even the most casual of us gals can easily achieve…

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  I have been miserably sick, but still managed to salvage somewhat of a decent weekend-with the highlight being soaking my aches and cough away in the hot tub with Christmas music playing in the background, and snow falling all around.  Sick or not, this really is the most wonderful time of the year!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Fall Florals

When I think florals, I definitely think Spring.  But for whatever reason, I have been finding myself drawn to bright colors and flowery patterns this Fall season.  Maybe it’s denial about the cooler months ahead, or maybe it’s my love for color.  But either way, I am kind of digging breaking out some of my favorite Spring pieces in the month of November…
