What To Wear: Chic Tomboys

I don’t know if its because I don’t go out much anymore or if I am reverting back to my old tomboyish ways, but all I want is to be cute and comfortable nowadays. I am so tired of wearing shoes that hurt my feet just to look the part. So I have traded my high heels for these Nike dunks…Love them! Due to the wedge, I feel like a have a little more height (even though I’m 5’7) but not enough to have my feet screaming at the end of the day. Winning…

Butler London: Keks

DSCN0540

Every since I saw this color on @Thatsheart’s Instagram page I have been dying to get my hands on this color. One of my best girlfriends (thanks Tameka!) actually bought it for me from Nordstrom yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to swatch it for you guys today.

I’ll keep this post short and sweet…If you like blue nail polish like I do you will love Keks. It’s vibrant and super pigmented, which means that you could get away with wearing just one coat. In these pictures I am wearing two coats along with Sech Vite’s Dry Fast Top Coat. Keks should be available anywhere Butter London polishes are sold, and it retails for $15. You can purchase it online here.

Nordy Girl Favorites

DSCN0505

I have a bunch of beauty products and one accessory to tell you guys about today…

Nail Products

I previously tried samples of Bubble White, and finally decided to get the jar so that I could soak my nails on a more frequent basis. I love this stuff because it is a quick and easy way to prep your nails for an at home manicure. Bubble White cleans your nails and softens your cuticles, and it literally works in 5 minutes. Amazeballs! As for the hand cream…I was previously stuck on Soap & Glory’s Hand Food, which I still love, but I didn’t realize that Silk Elements sold a hand cream that is comparable and much more affordable. What I love about this particular hand cream is that it smells amazing and moisturizes my hands without making them feel greasy. And for a little over $3…Yes, I’ll take that! Lol…

Make Up

Lately, my make up has been super easy going: Brows.Mascara.Lip Gloss. These glosses from Sephora and Revlon have been giving me that super shiny look that I love. Unlike mac lip glosses, they are light…No crazy thinkness here, but a lot of shine, which is exactly what I need. And for my lashes I’ve been obsessed with this Lash Potion from Revlon. OMG yall!! The volume and length that I get from this mascara is unreal. I use at least 3 coats when putting on my make up. Lol…

Nail Polish

Pastels and bright pinks!! I’ve finally ventured away from blue (cream) nail polish, ladies…I thought I would try something a little different from what I usually wear. These three polishes are jellies, meaning that they are a bit on the sheer side but are buildable, and can easily be layered with glitter nail polish. Ever heard of a “jelly sandwich”? Well, that is when you put a layer of glitter in between two coats of jelly nail polish (I’ll be sure to post an example of one this week)…Well, these polishes are perfect for that sort of thing. Here are swatches of each:

Accessory

Finally, I have been dying to tell you all about this eye glass case from Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale. This is the only thing I bought from the sale and I am so in love with it. I swear I would probably buy anything that has “Nordy Girl” on it for the phrase alone. All I can say is this case is sooooo me…Period…

All Products Mentioned:

I hope you all enjoyed this post…If you’ve tried any of these items, let me know what you think of them. Talk to you all soon! xx

What To Wear: Leopard+

In case you all have not noticed, I decided to change the name of my blog from Clutchez to Clothez & Clutchez. The name change just seemed to makes sense, and I feel like it gives people a better sense of what the blog is actually all about.

What To Wear is going to be a new series here on Clothez and Clutchez. Therefore, I will now be posting outfits at least 2-3 times per month. I really hope you all like the series…I had so much fun shooting these pics:

DSCN0145

Nowadays, I find that I am always wearing leopard of some sort. Today its a blazer, tomorrow it may be shoes, and the next day it may be a clutch.

Traditionally, a lot of women tend to pair leopard with the color red. I thought it would be fun to pair this blazer with a different pop of color instead. This turquoise blue really does the trick, and I think the gold accessories really compliment the contrasts between the colors.

Jewelry Rut…

Has anyone else been in a jewelry rut?? Perhaps its just me…I used to be able to find cute costume jewelry but recently it has been really difficult. A few weeks ago I purchased a silver and gold spike bracelet from Nordstrom (here) but it tarnished after I had it for one week. A week?! Where they do that at?? The same thing happened when I purchased this Michael Kors bracelet, and I was pissed because that thing was like sixty bucks! What a waste of my duckets!

IMG_4315

There have been only a handful of jewelry pieces that have been giving me life lately. My gold Michael Kors watches have been on repeat for a couple of weeks now. I have other watches, but these two are my favorites at the moment.

As for earrings, it has been either studs or hoops. I have a new found appreciation for stud earrings, and I have been wearing these two a lot. Both I purchased at Nordstrom. The spiked ones are from the Nordstrom brand, and the blinged out skulls are from Betsey Johnson. Although I am known for my big ridiculous earrings I haven’t really been feeling them as of late. However, if I am not wearing a stud I am definitely wearing a hoop. These gold hoops are my fav, but I love any variation of big gold hoops.

When it comes to bracelets, I am in love with this shamballa bracelet. There are so many variations of shamballa bracelets, I am tempted to get more than one. I bought this black one from My Bella Couture. It’s a little different than the traditional ones I’ve seen, which is part of the reason why I like it so much. My other bracelet is one that I purchased a while ago when I used to work at Taxco Sterling, a sterling silver jewelry store in Washington, D.C. I love it because it is inspired by the David Yurman cuff bracelets.

Did you notice that most of this jewelry is gold? Yes, I have to admit that I am becoming a bit of a gold fanatic. I LOVE gold right now. We’ll see how long this lasts phase lasts…What do you prefer? Silver or gold? And do you find that even expensive costume jewelry turns way too fast??

BTW, I have my eyes on a few of the Pandora bracelets (black triple /double wrap and oxidized). Do any of you own one? If so, how do you like? The charms you can buy to go on them are super cute.

I hope you enjoyed this post! Talk to you all soon. xx

Rouge Pop Art

_7031134

I was scrolling through my Instagram feed and stumbled upon this baby on a beauty blogger’s feed. Now I know that the mere thought of YSL nail polish makes people cringe because of the pricey-ness associated with the brand, but let me tell you that this nail polish is well worth the money they are charging for it.

YSL’s Rouge Pop Art (RPA) is a super vibrant red, and is probably the most gorgeous red I’ve seen in a long time. Not just because the formula is smooth and easy to work with, but the brush alone makes this nail polish a gem. The brush is flat and fans out a little at the tip. When I used RPA to paint the swatches below, my nail was completely covered in two strokes. And if you are into nail polish you know that rarely ever happens. There are only a handful of brands with brushes like that. The shape of the brush also helps to avoid getting nail polish all over your cuticles.

YSL Rouge

I purchased this beauty from http://www.sephora.com during their VIB sale so I actually didn’t pay full price for this. It retails for $25 and is available here and here. There is another one (which I posted here) that I want to try, but I think I’ll wait for my Nordstrom Notes to come in the mail before doing so. Lol…

What do you guys think about high end nail polish? Would you splurge on it?? And what about red nails? Are you rocking them this season? Red nails are just so classic, aren’t they?!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Mini Preview

I always look forward Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale because it gives me the opportunity to score some great pieces that haven’t yet been released. The pre-Anniversary sale began this past Wednesday and anyone with a Nordstrom card can shop the pre-sale from now until July 19th. From July 20th until August 6th the sale will be open to everyone. After August 6th the prices will increase.

This year is the first time Nordstrom has made the pre-sale available online, which I thought was awesome. However, I spent an entire hour trying to order only one thing from the sale on Wednesday so I am surprisingly tired of online shopping right now! I suppose since tons of cardholders were on the site at the same time, there was an overload, and the site was moving extremely slow and kept timing out every couple of minutes.

Anywhoo, I was able to score the Rebecca Minkoff Studded “Wallet on a Chain,” which was about 33% off of the regular price. I am slowly becoming a fan RM’s cross body bags, BTW. I thought this particular cross body was unique so I figured that I should pounce on it ASAP…I am also eyeing a Bagley Mischka tote bag, which I listed below…Can’t decide if I definitely want it, and if so, in what color. When in doubt, wait to purchase!! Lol…

Here are some accessories that I thought were worth mentioning (click the photos to enlarge them):
