Accessory Crush: Vita Fede

vita fede

I used to be to really into jewelry, but lately I have been rolling with just my Pandora bracelets and my Michael Kors watch. I rarely ever see jewelry that really excites me. A few weeks ago, however, I came across Vita Fede on Instagram (@vitafede). First, the founder/designer, Cynthia Sakai has the cutest style ever, and she stays rocking a fresh mani (you guys know I love that). Second, I absolutely love the jewelry…

Vita Fede is an LA based company that focuses on creating jewelry that is inspired by contemporary art and architecture. Each piece is handcrafted and made in Italy. The designs comes in sterling silver, 24k gold, and brass. Sakai also uses natural stones and Swarovski crystals in her designs as well:

Her nails are everything!

Oh.Em.Geee. I love it all. Although these sorts of bracelets have been around for a while, I love the way she adds a very modern spin to these classic designs.

While I think the stacks are adorable, I would be satisfied with just one or two bracelets and a ring, which I’ll obviously be saving up for.

Midis and Rainbow Honeys…

DSCN0399

So I discovered an Indie nail polish site last week and felt compelled to try out this gorgeous mint color I saw on http://www.pshiiit.com. She arguably has the best nail blog ever, but I digress…When I saw this color combo on her, I had to try it.

Let me introduce you all to Mint Flavor from Rainbow Honey Cosmetics, which is a company that makes custom blended nail polishes. You all know how much I love my mint green polishes, right? Well, Mint Flavor is right up my alley. This isn’t a traditional mint creme nail polish, this one has a gorgeous shimmer. Adorbs! Side Note: Adorbs is short for adorable and is my new favorite word…I can’t stop saying it…Lol

And of course, I couldn’t just try one nail polish, I had to try at least two…Lol…So I also purchased this neon glitter called Magic Cake. What an appropriate name. I feel like I have funfetti cake on my ring finger.

Who would have thought that something so insignificant like nail polish (to others, obviously not to me) could bring you so much joy?! I love glitter because it makes you feel like you have an actual design on your nails without having to endure the hassle of nail art.

Last, but certainly not least, how cute is this midi ring from Urban Outfitters?! Adorbs!

I hope you all enjoyed this post…If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to leave them in the comment section below. Talk to you all soon! xx

Spring Trend: Clear Accessories

Back when I was in middle school I had this clear plastic purse that was soooo pressed for. And if I remember correctly, I bought it from Claire’s. I wore that bag until the strap broke! It was one of my staple pieces in 8th grade, although I didn’t realize it at the time.  And somehow, several years later, that trend seems to have creeped back into the fashion world.

Runways were crawling with transparent accessories for Spring 2013 so I thought I would share some of the cute options I’ve seen:

And if you need a little more color, these may be to your liking as well:

Although I don’t plan on investing too much money into this trend, I really am loving it! I may have to snag a clutch or necklace! Those oxfords are calling my name as well. What do you all think of the trend? I knew fashion was cyclical but geez. I am going to start keeping things I don’t wear just in case they come back in style! Lol…

Hope you all enjoyed this post…xxxx

Go Mint

I don’t know what it is about mint green that gets me all excited, but I have fallen in love with a number of mint green accessories this season. The mint green trend has returned once again and is a very popular look for Spring and Summer 2013. So I decided to come up with some fun accessories that I thought you all may love:

As you can see, mint green accessories can be mixed and matched with various metals as well as a number of prints (tribal, leopard, etc.). In the outfit on the left, I love how the model mixes her mint green jeans with a dark sweater/blazer. This look demonstrates that you can easily spice things up a bit by incorporating color into an already chic but conservative look. And the leopard clutch is a great contrast between the light/dark hues.

But if you are one that stays away from bright clothing, consider investing in a mint handbag. Coach and Rebecca Minkoff have designed some great options (pictured above the right). A fun necklace or shoe can also do the trick. And of course, I had to mention at least one nail polish that fits the mint trend (Ciate’s Pepperminty).

So…What Spring trends are you guys excited about? I’ve already purchased some mint green jeans, but I may need to cop one of these cute crossbody bags too!

I hope everyone is having a great week! xx

This Week’s Flix

I am totally obsessed with Instagram. I have been posting pictures like crazy on there. I just wanted to show you all, who are not or cannot follow me, what I have been up to this week.

First, I am doing a challenge on Instagram where I have to post a picture of polishes that I haven’t tried/swatched yet. This is our collective effort to use the polishes we have (especially the ones we haven’t used yet) before buying more polish. Here are some of my swatches thus far:

Color Club's New Bohemian, Julep's Oscar, China Glaze's Sugar High, and Misa's Bikini With A Martini...

Here are all of my untried/haven't swatched nail polishes...I know...it's out of control! Lol...Don't judge me!

Here is another color I swatched before the challenge began:

Orly's Stone Cold...A gorgeous shimmery blue...

I also posted some pictures of a few accessories I purchased this week:

Scarves from TJ Maxx...Perfect for Spring...

A statement ring from Nordstrom Rack...

I'll discuss what I purchased from Nordies and Juicy later on this week...Lol

I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!! XOXO

Daily Reads: Nail Blogs

I’m not sure when this phenomenon began, but nail blogs are absolutely amazing!! Only in the past couple of months have I discovered them and there is one in particular that I love. The only disadvantage is that it’s written in French! Lol…So don’t be alarmed if you click on PSHIIIT, and cannot understand a single word on the site. However, the photos are always on point! Anywhooo, here are the nail blogs I follow most frequently:

I get a lot of nail color and design ideas from looking at these sites. These ladies are amazing!! Enjoy! XOXO

*BTW, if you are interested in learning how Pshiiit designed her nails in the photo above, check out her Youtube video here:
