What To Wear: Black on Black

I don’t know about you guys but I am so guilty of obsessing over what to wear. Honestly, it can get kind of ridiculous sometimes. On New Year’s Eve though, I thought I would keep it simple…Nothing special, no sequins, no tiny little dress, none of that. But a bit of leather never hurt anyone so I wore this:

{Top and Jeans: Express. Boots: Jessica Simpson. Clutch: Rebecca Minkoff. Watch: Michael Kors. Nails: Formula X (Sephora): High Frequency.}

I absolutely adore this leather top from Express, which has become one of my favorite stores. They always have some sort of promotion going on and I never pay full price for anything.

I received this top as a gift for my birthday a few months ago and finally had the opportunity to wear it. I would have loved to wear a gold chain with this top, but I haven’t found the right one just yet. The gold chain I do have is a bit too chunky for this look. So if you guys have any gold necklaces that you’d like to recommend, let me know…

What did you guys do to celebrate the New Year? And who else just throws black on when they don’t know what to wear? I know I’m not the only one…

I hope everyone’s New Year is off to a great start!! xx

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview: Accessories

I took a trip to the Nordstrom in Annapolis, Maryland on Thursday evening with my Mom, and was not wowed by much of what I saw. She left out of the store with 4 items and I left out with none! Shocking, isn’t it?! Lol…There are a handful of things that I liked but wasn’t willing to buy. One item that I am still contemplating is a Marc by Marc Jacobs Wallet, which I’ve included below.

I was expecting to purchase a rose gold watch (the best looking one in the sale is listed below as well), but a lot of the sale options this year looked cheap. Not sure what that is about but whatevs…But as far as accessories go, here is a preview of some things I thought you all may like:

What To Wear: Black & Gold

Since I knew I was going to be with my entire family on Mother’s Day, playing with my nieces and nephews, I wanted to wear something chic but comfortable so I decided on this Femme Fatale tee (which I didn’t realize said 666 until today…I promise I don’t worship the devil!) and my favorite leopard Sperrys.

When I had gone outside initially I didn’t have on a jacket because the sun was beaming, and I assumed that it was warm. Not so…The weather here in DC is super weird. It was beautifully sunny, but very windy yesterday. So I took a few pictures with and without the jacket:

Some of my favorite accessories at the moment…

And yes, I have on leopard again. Lol…I just can’t stop wearing it! I am also super obsessed with gold accessories. This bracelet from the HRH Collection is super adorable and girly. Definitely one of my favorite pieces at the moment. Not to mention this ID necklace from Asos…Loves it!

I hope you all enjoyed this post!! xx…Kel

Special thanks to Kayla for snapping these pictures for me.

Spikes & Thangs…

DSCN0213

I’ve been looking for a cute military chic jacket for quite some time now and although I was supposed to be shopping for a dress to wear to graduation yesterday, I stumbled upon this. I had seen it online on Forever 21’s website (available here) and I have been contemplating whether or not I should buy it. I was hesitant to purchase it online because I wasn’t sure about which size to get, and I was a bit leery of the price point. However, when I saw it in the store yesterday I had to have it. I was thinking that this would be super cute for the fall, but since Summer is still playing hide and seek here in Maryland, I just might get some wear out of it this month.

DSCN0208

For some odd reason I am absolutely obsessed with spikes and studs. Do you guys remembered when I purchased this Rebecca Minkoff Wallet on a Chain last summer? Yup, I am still loving it! I usually only carry it when I am going out and want to be hands-free, but it is still want of my favorite pieces in my accessory closet. Who doesn’t love a cute, lightweight crossbody!?

DSCN0212

This one is no longer available but Rebecca Minkoff has come out with a number of crossbody bags that are really similar. I see that many designers have caught on to this trend and now you can find spikes or studs on practically everything! Shoes, handbags, hats, jewelry, and even iphone cases. This spike trend is getting out of hand but I have to admit, I am loving it!

I hope you all enjoyed this post. Talk to you soon…Be blessed! xx…Kel

Spring Wishlist

I love making wishlists. They are almost like mini inspiration boards for me. This one definitely doesn’t have a specific theme but these are things that I am currently lusting after. I am thinking that my Spring style will be overflowing with positivity and progress, and bedazzled with lots of brights, neons, golds and gunmetals.

20130225-172834.jpg

  1. These Michael Kors sneakers are adorable…I’m finding that on the weekends, I want to be cute and comfortable. Who wants to be all fussy in heels and whatnot when you’re supposed to be relaxed?!
  2. Rebecca Minkoff can do no wrong in my book when it comes to handbags. I saw this crossbody bag in her runway show last season and I was instantly in love.
  3. I was watching Oprah’s Lifeclass last night, which featured Rich Warren, the genius behind The Purpose Driven Life, and I was thinking, “Why haven’t I read this book yet?” I love pretty things but I also love knowledge…I love to learn new things (especially about myself). Out of all the things on this wishlist, I am most excited about reading The Purpose Driven Life this Spring.
  4. DVF is quickly becoming one of my favorite designers. I love the shape of this handbag and that neon green flap is giving me life. This is THE perfect handbag for Spring.
  5. I don’t usually follow a lot of trends, but these dainty knuckle rings are adorable. This particular image is from Gal Vardi’s Esty page and are quite affordable .

What kinds of things are you all lusting after this Spring? Any wishlists or inspiration boards you’d like to share?

xx, KEL

Rebecca Minkoff SS13 Runway Show

20120921-082557.jpg

Did any of you catch Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring/Summer 2013 Runway Show last week? I watched the live stream online (I think she is totally awesome for allowing people to watch online) and loved every second of it!!!

All of the prints and the ombre clothing…And you know I was stalking all of the handbags! I was also feeling the mint green eyeshadow and mint green nails each of the models was wearing. Check the video out for yourself below:

I loved all of the handbags from the big envelope clutches to the satchels to the cross body bags. I also loved the denim patchwork jeans and jean shorts. Look 26, the African American woman with the black and grey top, and black, white and grey pants, was my favorite!!. Loved it from head to toe. And who doesn’t love a chic classic white blouse? I see she had a lot of those as well.

Wasn’t that awesome? I have to find a way to get my hine pots to fashion week next year. I refuse to be left out anymore! Loves it!!!

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):
