Friday Fab Finds


Jewelry under $15

This edition of fab find is all about my favorite obsession JEWELRY!!! I have no price limit when it comes to buying accessories (jewelry, handbags and sunglasses); it’s the only place where I feel no guilt splurging because I believe accessories are what makes an outfit. But just because I have a no limit budget, doesn’t mean I still don’t look around for a deal and, sometimes, I am lucky enough to find one. So, this week I am sharing with you the amazing pieces I got, all under $15 and where you can buy these (or something similar). Happy shopping & TGIF!!

Tuesday Trendy


Today’s trendy report is about Peter Pan Collar.  I thought this one was a little young when I first saw it and that I would look ridiculous wearing this trend.  But then I saw celebs of all ages wearing it (from Hailey Steinfield 15, Naya Rivera 25, to Natalie Portman 31) and realized it’s something I can def try, w/out looking like I am trying to be 12.  So, I decided to give it a shot and was surprised at how much I liked it!!  I bought two different type of shirts, first is a light pink chiffon (yes, of course, I bought chiffon, lol, I am obsessed with it!!!) and the second one is a dressy nudey/taupey color with silver spots on it.  I have yet to buy a Peter Pan collared dress since I already bought 2 tops, trying to save some $$$; let’s see may be soon I can get one.


Below you will see pictures of how I styled each shirt:

The pink one I wore with black dressy shorts for work and paired it with pastel colored earrings, bangles, patent skinny belt and shoes (a little black against black contrast, I thought the patent would stand out more than leather since the pants were black).  If your work has a stricter dress policy, you can switch the shorts with pencil skirt or long cotton sateen pants and a black linen blazer (cotton sateen and linen will keep you cool but they are still dressy enough for work). I also wore this same shirt to a BBQ recently (not pictured, I didn’t take any, big oops) with light blue jeans shorts and matching pink flats with bows (yes I like bows too, lol, so girly, it always makes me happy), and same jewelry.  So, it’s a very versatile top, probably because it’s made of Chiffon, ha!!

The nude/taupe one is a little dressier so I wore it with darker washed skinny jeans for a casual date night with the hubby or a girls night out.  Paired it with black satin pumps for extra shot of hotness and kept the jewelry silver matching with the silver spots (I wore a rounder shaped earrings to mimic the shape of the silver spots on the shirt).

Let me know what you guys think about this trend, if you have tried or will try.  Are there any other trends now that you are loving/hating or want me to talk about?

Charlotte Russe  – Shimmer Dot Peter Pan Collar Top  & Peter Pan Collar Chiffon Top (these are the two tops I am wearing)

Monday Madness


Today’s madness confession is about one of my favorite fabrics, CHIFFON!! I absolutely love any type of clothing made out of chiffon (or the cheaper, very similar stepsister 100% polyester).
It’s so versatile; from office to running errands to weddings or formal dinners, you can wear chiffon outfits anywhere because it’s so easy to dress up or down. It’s very flattering on most body type since it doesn’t cling on like jersey, wear out like cotton, or puffy like tulle. It also mellows out the loud colors like neon, red and fuchsia to make it more wearable for all.

Below are few pictures of me in chiffon (or the stepsister, lol), two long ones I wore for formal dinner dates, one to do a tour in Greece (so much history, loved that tour), and the last one to party in Vegas for my bachelorette (o yea, fun times!!!).


If you already don’t have anything chiffon in your closet, then what are you waiting for? Run, don’t walk, to the nearest mall and get some to add to your fabulous closet. Clothing made out of chiffon are available in any price point and trust me, this is a purchase you won’t regret.

You can find Chiffon at the following retailers

Forever 21 
Charlotte Russe
Wet Seal

Friday Fab Finds


Fab finds will be all about amazing items I buy or find at just as amazing price.  With economy still looking gloom and some of us still at the brink of losing jobs or with no jobs, it’s hard to find the money in our budget to buy or even justify a big ticket item.  Every Friday I will post about an item in a fabulous price.  So, fierce fashionistas everywhere can treat themselves to something wonderful without that after taste of guilt.

Starting off the fab “fash” find is a white watch for summer.  I have been lusting over ceramic white watches since two years ago and after all the searching, still was unable to find one that was within my limited budget.  I refuse to buy a white watch for more than $200 that I will only wear for the short summer season.  So, after searching the web like a mad woman and reading countless reviews, I came across this wonderful Armitron Now white watch.  It’s not ceramic but made out of resin (ceramic is very heavy) so its light weight, has Swarovski crystal all around, water resistant, looks great on my petite arm, and cost about $40, what more can I want!  So, I got it and at last my search for white watch is finished.  It looks great (not cheap looking) but the band was a little big, which you can easily fix at home by removing some of the links, and the butterfly closure hides the latch so you don’t see the closure, it looks continuous.  Below are the pictures of me wearing the watch and also the Amazon link if you want to get it for yourself or as a gift for someone special.  Happy shopping & TGIF!!
