Casual

I wear my army green surplus jackets all the time.  So when I happened to stumble on my favorite silhouette in a pale pink color, I was 100% sold.  I love putting a new spin on an old classic, because not only is it comfortable, but it still feels fresh and new at the same time.

Budget Denim

Truth be told, I am a creature of habit when it comes to denim.  AG and 7  for All Mankind are by far away and my favorite brands and have been for several years.  I’m also a fan of Paige, Joe’s, and Citizens.  But I don’t necessarily love the high price tag of these designer brands.  So every now and again, I’ll test out denim brands based on trend.

And that’s what led me to these jeans.  I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Emily, from The Sweetest Thing, wearing this specific pair and I thought they were so cute (she tends to wear the same brands of denim that I do), that I decided to give them a try.  And I am SO glad that I did!  Not only are they cute, comfy, and fit true to size, but the best part?  They are on sale for less than $90!  So if you are looking for new denim for the spring season, I would highly recommend these!

Happy Friday, my sweet friends!  Not to be a squeaky wheel, but if you have a chance to, I would be so appreciative if you would vote for me to be on the cover of Redbook Magazine’s September cover!  All you have to do is GO HERE and click vote!  You can vote as many times as you wish between now and May 10th!  And THANK YOU so much for your support!!!!

Love you guys!

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!

Casual Valentine

Whether you are in a relationship or a single gal, I think today’s outfit is a super fun way to dress up for a casual Valentine’s Day date without being too literal.  Plus, I warmly welcome any holiday that gives me an excuse to wear a pair of favorite statement pumps.  And because lace up pumps are going to be such a major trend for Spring and Summer this year, I’ve linked a few of my favorites below!DSC_3970 DSC_3922 DSC_3951 DSC_3929 DSC_3924 DSC_3973 DSC_3956 DSC_3996 DSC_3982 DSC_4001Jacket: Nordstrom (tried and true favorite!) | Top: cabi (if you are interested in ordering this top, I can put you in touch my cabi stylist-just leave a comment below!) | Skinnies: 7 for all mankind | Scarf: scarves.net c/o | Cuff: Stella & Dot | Rings: Kendra Scott | Sunnies: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (try them for one month free with code ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG at checkout!) | Pumps: Jeffrey Campbell (sold out), similar, also love these, these, these, and these

Nude

Nude and neutral tones are totally my jam this season.  And this blazer?  It is so cute with the peplum back.  I seriously can’t say enough good things about it. Because if there is one thing I really love, it’s a great fitting, unique jacket with a price tag that doesn’t break the bank (it also comes in black and is only $51!).DSC_3672 DSC_3673 DSC_3709 DSC_3675 DSC_3682 DSC_3710 DSC_3698 DSC_3754 DSC_3747 DSC_3733 DSC_3762Blazer: Lookbook Store c/o (also comes in black!) | Sequin Top: JCrew (on sale!) | Skinnies: AG Farrah | Sunnies: Karen Walker c/o Ditto (try them for one month free with code: ALLDOLLEDUPBLOG at checkout!) | Bag: Rebecca Minkoff | Pumps: Jeffrey Campbell (sold out), almost identical, also love these

A lot of you ask me for denim recommendations under $100.  So today’s post is for you, ladies!  Whether they are in fashion or not, I always have a few pairs of destroyed denim in my closet.  It’s just a style that I have always loved, and will probably always love, until I’m too old to wear them anymore!  Ha!

Polka Dot

I have been on the hunt for the perfect black faux fur vest for months. and finally found this cute one at Nordstrom.  And let me tell you, this vest is my new favorite thing in my closet.  in fact, I have already worn it twice in the past week!  Not only is it super soft and flattering, and but it’s a great price point too!  So if you have been wanting to add a black faux fur vest to your closet this year, then look no further!

Tunic

Confession: I ordered this “top” thinking that it was a dress.  But when it arrived, it was much too short, and the slit was way too high (yikes!) for me to wear it as a dress, let alone in public.  Ha! But I loved the print and fabric so much (it is a nice, sturdy scuba material), that I stewed over how to wear it for a while, not wanting to return it.  And I finally decided that it could indeed be worn be worn as a top.  In the end, while I still wish it was a dress, I am loving how it looks with leggings, and can’t wait to wear it again when the temperature drops with a cute blazer or leather jacket.

Have you guys ever had a similar experience ordering online before?DSC_2469DSC_2467DSC_2507DSC_2470DSC_2483DSC_2474DSC_2506DSC_2485DSC_2509

Hope you are all having a great week.  I am traveling again for meetings this week.  And I have to tell you, the past few weeks have been so packed full of travel for me that I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that tomorrow marks the first day of October!  Where on earth did September go?  Cray cray!! 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

Strappy

Do you guys watch Project Runway?  It is one of my FAVORITE shows.  And in this past episode, Edmond (one of my faves!) made a gorgeous pant suit complete with a cloud inspired vest.  It was one of my favorite looks of the week.  And the gorgeous, strappy top that he made, reminded me of one I have in my closet that I’ve never posted to the blog.  And so today, I thought it would be fitting to share a classic black and white look complete with a bright a lip.  A perfect Fall date night look inspired by one of my favorite shows!

Boots With The Fringe

I mentioned last week that I can’t stop wearing dresses and booties together.  And it’s true!  I just can’t stop.  Especially when it comes to long sleeve dresses and just about anything with fringe on it.  But I know the whole fringe thing is probably a love/hate for most people this season.  So I’ve got to ask, what are y’all thinking about fringe for fall?  Yay or nay?  Love it or leave it?DSC_2268DSC_2273DSC_2295DSC_2272DSC_2271 DSC_2328 DSC_2313 DSC_2294 DSC_2332

FREE for one month.  Then you can keep them for $19 a month after that for as many (or as few) months as you like.  You can even change them out for another pair!  How cool is that?  Just go to ditto.com and enter code: ALLDOLLEDUP at checkout! Enjoy!
