Bell Sleeves and Pirate Shirts

If you follow me over on Insta (@alldolledupblog), you might know how much I LOVE the bell sleeve trend.  But I do have a confession.  Every time I put one on,  I can’t help but think of the Jerry Seinfeld episode with the pirate shirt.  I’m probably totally aging myself here, but you guys know what I’m talking about, right? So I have to ask, does this trend make anyone else think of the same thing??? And more importantly, is this a trend that you guys are into this Spring?  Leave a comment below-I’d love to know!

Since I haven’t blogged very much in such a long time, Chloe wanted to make sure she stopped by to say hello too.

Hope you guys are having a fab week!

Olde Stash Collaboration

 

A couple of months ago, I was approached to do a collaboration with a really cool brand called Olde Stash, out of my hometown in Kalispell, Montana.  And because I am such a huge fan of this brand, and wanted to have the opportunity to share Olde Stash with all of you, of course I said yes!  If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember me sharing a little teaser of my time in the studio partnering with the owner (and creative genius!) behind Olde Stash, to design my very own custom bag. And if you don’t remember, here’s a little refresher!

dsc_9964 dsc_9948 dsc_9921 dsc_9959And one of the coolest things about this brand is that not only is my bag one-of-a-kind because I had a hand in the design process, but every bag that Olde Stash creates is also one-of-a kind.  All materials are purchased in small batches, and each piece is not only made to order, but hand crafted in-house in Kalispell, Montana.  And in addition to being totally gorgeous and unique, these bags are created using top of the line materials, including 3mm wool from Germany (the colors are all so beautiful and vibrant), and world-famous Horween leather, that has been tanned in Chicago for over 100 years.

And I have to tell you guys, I used to be a handbag buyer and designer for Sundance Catalog, and have traveled both domestically and abroad sourcing product, and I have never seen anything else like these bags in the marketplace.  They are truly stunning and so unique.  Whenever I carry this bag, I literally have people stop me on the street, in the airport, at work, wherever I may be, to ask me where they can find one.  And so of course today, I couldn’t be more excited to share Olde Stash with you.

So be sure to stop by the Olde Stash website and take a look around.  And if you want to place an order in time for Christmas (any of their pieces would make amazing gifts!), all orders must be placed by the end of the week.  And please feel free to reach out if you need any more info or have any questions.  Enjoy!

Girly

I’m not the most quintessentially “girly” dresser.  And while I love dresses and skirts, I typically tend to gravitate towards denim.  However, when I spotted this cute skirt, tied with a bow, I knew it would be a great piece to add to my wardrobe.  Especially since it’s under $30!

Plus how great are these Valentino dupes?  Not only are they super comfy (and cute!), but they are under $70!

Skirt: Shein c/o (love! such great quality; I’m wearing a medium for reference; also comes in black)

Necklace: BaubleBar (just ordered it in hot pink too!)

Clutch: Lany c/o (stay tuned for an upcoming giveaway!)

Sunnies: Karen Walker via Ditto (rent them for free for one month with code: ALLDOLLEDUP at checkout!)

Pumps: BCBG (SO comfy and come in tons of colors!)

Hope you all had a great weekend.  Happy Monday!

French Kande

I am a sentimental gal and love special pieces of jewelry that carry some sort of meaning.  So when I discovered a company called French Kande, whose jewelry is both beautiful and meaningful, I knew that I wanted to share their unique pieces with all of you.

To give you a little background, French Kande jewelry is inspired by authentic French Medallions from the 1960’s that the owner of the company has collected from flea markets in Paris over the last 7 years.  Each one has a different story and is handcast from the original medallion and plated in either brass or sterling silver in the French Kande studio in L.A..

The Medallion I am wearing in today’s post is a gorgeous compass medallion that was used a as promotional piece for a fine food retailer in France in the 1960’s called Sopad.  They carried everything from fine wines to chocolates (perfect for me!).

So if you are looking to own a little piece of history, or add something incredibly unique and special (not to mention stunningly beautiful!) to your jewelry collection, then I would recommend checking out French Kande!  And right now, just for All Dolled Up readers, they are offering a FREE pair of stud earring (cast from antique French buttons) with any $150 purchase.  Just enter ALL DOLLED UP in the comments at checkout!

Creature Comforts

I was just telling a girlfriend of mine last night that when I started blogging, it made me realize what a creature of habit I am.  I tend to gravitate towards the same types of items and the same kinds of outfits.  So being a blogger has been a great way to force myself out of my comfort zone and try new things.  And today’s look is a great example of that.  A couple of years ago, I never would have tried an outfit like this.  And while it still wouldn’t be my go-to (like yesterday’s outfit!), I love pushing myself to try new trends and new looks.  Afterall, that’s what makes fashion fun and exciting, right?

Touchstone Crystal+Giveaway

Today I want to introduce you guys to a fabulous jewelry company called Touchstone Crystal.  Now I know the name sounds a little out there (at least that’s what I thought when I first heard about it), but this product is seriously incredible!  In fact, I first discovered it when I thought a girlfriend of mine was wearing diamond solitaire earrings, and when I asked her about them, she let me in on her little secret.  Touchstone Crystal was created by the Swarovski group, and all of the jewelry in turn is made with genuine Swarovski crystals and zirconia (Swarovski Zirconia is the finest simulated diamond in the world).  And do you know what that means?  Not only is the jewelry absolutely gorgeous, and top notch quality, but it is also affordable!  I picked up the beautiful statement ring I am wearing in the below photos and I can’t even being to convey how much I love it.  And not only that, but with most pieces under $100, I can’t wait to add a few more things to my jewelry collection.

Be sure to scroll below for your chance to enter to win one of 2 gift cards to Touchstone Crystal!!

American Eagle Part Three

Happy Friday everyone!  And welcome to the third and final installment of my Bloggers Do It Better feature with American Eagle!  This outfit was my personal favorite of the three. Which should come as no surprise, because as I’ve said time and time again on this blog, there is nothing I love more than mixing something sweet back to something a little more gritty-especially when there is a little (or a lot) of sparkle involved…
