Loving the Fiona!

Shirt: H&M
Cardi: Target
Jeans: Target
Flats: Old Navy

Necklace: Fiona via my Stella & Dot website

Bracelet: Luxor Link via my Stella & Dot website

Love, love, love this necklace! It's all about the organic shapes, the pave detailing and I'm digging on the color! Add another favorite color in mint, some stripes and I am happy. 

The matching earrings are on my wishlist so hopefully I'll be wearing those soon, too!

Cozy Sweaterdress

Sweaterdress: Ross $12
Belt: JCPenney, old
Boots: Mervyns, $10, old

Another outfit with tags that I'm so glad that I still like.
Adding the belt makes the outfit so much better by adding shape and pulling in my waist.

Since I'm announcing the winner of the Posh'mina today, I thought I'd pick out some statement necklaces that would look great with their scarves. Most of their prints have a bohemian vibe so I've chosen necklaces accordingly: 
all of these are available on my Stella & Dot website

Stella & Dot Fiona Bib

Stella & Dot Awakening Charm Necklace

Stella & Dot Rio Triple Strand Coin Necklace

Stella & Dot Calypso Coin Necklace

Turquoise Leopard

Dress: old
Necklace: H&M $15, last year
Shoes: Target $7
Cardigan: Wet Seal $5

Coat: Tulle

I love this leopard print dress, but it has this vintage vibe with bell sleeves. Not quite digging on it right now, so even though my sleeves were bulky under the cardigan, I'm still loving the whole look so much more. Since I was staying in the office all day, I thought I would wear heels and tights and add a pop of color. It's been so cold lately that I forced myself to bring a coat, but since this one is dressy, girly and is vintage-y in a way that I do like, I was glad to wear it.

What a bargain!

Sweater: Ross $0.50!
Belt: Wet Seal?
Bracelet: Charlotte Russe
Boots: Ross

This sweater initially had a thin grey boa/faux fur scarf attached to the collar and after cutting it off, the sweater looked 1000 times better. My coworker asked me to take it home and return with it in a bag for her the next day. I wasn't so sure about the sweater when I bought it, but I think it looks so much better with the belt too. Can't beat the price!

A Posh Giveaway

Scarf: Miss Mosiac Slotted c/o The Posh'mina 
Skirt: Express, old
Shirt: Target

Bracelet: c/o ShopLately 

Scarf: Plum Yum Slotted c/o The Posh'mina 
Shirt: NY & Co, old
Skirt: Express, old

I first saw The Posh'mina scarves on ShopLately and I loved the bohemian look of the scarves. I love to wear pashima type scarves because they are bigger and can cover your arms and shoulders. The only problem is that traditional pashminas have to either be held or tied to stay on. I love how The Posh'mina's slots help keep the scarf laying over your shoulders and you're still able to do other things with your hands. 
Love how creative they styled the scarves on the website...

These pictures really do not do the color justice. I couldn't decide between the Miss Mosaic because of the print and the Plum Yum color so The Posh'mina was so generous to offer both. Even better, they are offering a Posh'mina to you too! 
The winner will get to choose any Posh'mina!

The Posh'mina giveaway ends Sunday, January 20, 2013. 
Open to US and Canada.

Bargain Hunter Madness

Shirt: Forever 21: $3
Sweater: Old Navy: $5

I found this shirt for $3 on the Forever 21 clearance rack, but since they are always having bogo sales, I was really tempted on waiting for the next sale to buy it. Really, though? I think I almost went too far with my bargain shopping ways with that one. $3 for a long sleeve shirt that I need, especially striped in a cute color? I'm glad I came to my senses and bought it (and the brown/burgundy-ish version too :) ).

So Cozy

Sweater: American Eagle via Marshalls, 2011, $15
Shirt: Target
Jeans: Forever 21
Boots: Mervyns, old

I always feel like I don't have enough cute winter wear so this sweater was added to the collection last year.  I mostly like that it was cozy, warm, and had a unique collar/wrap look.

A New Year's Giveaway!

Thanks to Stones & Bones NYC, I'm celebrating the new year with a giveaway! The winner will be able to create a customized bracelet of your very own! I'm wearing a pink quartz bracelet that I collaborated with the artist, Simeon Kasmetski, to create. He asked me questions over email and sent over this pretty bracelet that I love! I shared my favorite parts of different bracelets on his website and it turned out even better than I had hoped! I had a hard time choosing my favorite stone, but I'm so glad that my bracelet is made of my first choice, a candy pink! 

Bracelet giveaway details: ends Monday, January 7, 2013. Open to US and Canada.
