fran on broadway

10th August 2013

one of my favorite shops is coming to nyc and I had the honor of attending their preview blogger event to take a sneak peek at the store … and do a little shopping!
my favorite find was a pair of xo earrings, only $6!

francesca’s is the cutest little chain boutique, complete with affordable clothes, amazing jewels and great gifts! I was so glad to welcome them to to NYC with their first official store front located uptown at 86th and broadway. 
 francesca’s is also my go-to location for statement jewels! take a peak at some of my greatest hits

this dress

17th June 2013

excuse me, while i show off the newest addition to my closet…
this dress isn’t my usual shape (i’m mostly a fit and flair kind of girl) but i had to make an exception for this beauty. i’m crazy about the color blocking and the sparkle collar is the final finishing touch.

i also love that this dress doesn’t need much, the color blocking eliminates the necessity for a belt and the sparkle collar serves as a build in necklace. you can just step on up and walk out the door.

i’m craving something sweet…
&& today’s creamy-vanilla girly-glam look hits the spot.

champagne is one of those classy colors that every girl should covet. it can go casual or dressy && looks great with almost any other color. since shiny skirt speaks for itself, so i paired it with a simple white tee, before piling on the pearls for that extra wow factor. the gold accessories && pops of pavé give it that extra bit of bling!
please excuse my legs, the misquitos seem to really love me && have been using my legs as a buffet… awesome. for something unexpected, but still inline with the creamy color scheme, i finished the look with leopard heels. i thought they would add something unexpected, without going over the top.
