Cyber Monday!

I'm tempted to take advantage of the Forever21 Free Shipping today! (Use code: CYBERMO)

Forever21 and I are not the best of friends. I find a lot of their items to be super crappy quality and the fit of the item usually depends on the cut. So in addition to that, shopping online = not always so good for me. The closest Forever21 to me is the smallest store you will ever see. It's about the size of any shoe store you'll find in your mall. B/c it's so tiny, it doesn't carry most of the items you see online. I know right!? In addition to that, it's hard to find more than 2 or 3 of the same item. If you do find a duplicate item usually it's only in a size XS or S and don't bother trying to find it online b/c it won't be there!

However, b/c of the free shipping promo, here are some items I MIGHT just pull the trigger on today b/c I've been searching high and low for a few of these babies.

Perfect to dress up and layer up on a sweater or cardigan.

I've been on the hunt for a cream blazer b/c the one I've seen at Zara was too pricey for me. We'll see how this fits.

 I've been searching for a studded belt to add some toughness to my more girly pieces.

----Some items I'll keep in my Wishlist for now----

Have I mentioned I have a love for anything with this sparrow print on it? 
Gets me everytime! Love the color combo.
Navy always gets me! Especially when it's sheer!

Black Friday: Aersoles RIDELINE Boots

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.
I always enjoy getting together with my huge family, it's what makes the holidays for me. :)

On Black Friday, my aunts and I took a trip up to the Woodbury Common Outlets in NY. The size of these outlets are amazinggg. Pretty much every high end brand you can think of from Dior to Michael Kors to Tory Burch to 7 For All Mankind. It was my second time up there and boy was it crazyyyy.

Everywhere & everything was PACKED. There were lines to get into every store. We got there around 9am and left around 4:30 in the afternoon. I got a few items on my Xmas shopping list crossed off but I couldn't leave without a small little something for myself now could I? ;)

These Aerosoles boots are now on sale for $100, but at the Outlets these were an extra 20% off bringing them down to $80. If you've seen previous shoe posts on here you know I LOVE my Aerosoles. Boots, wedges, heels, sandals, I love them. They always have the most comfortable while at the same time still stylish shoes. I alwaysss get compliments when I wear any of my Aerosoles.

OOTD pics w these coming soon!

WISHLIST: Colored Denim

My biggest rule when it comes to spending on a new trend is to buy from places like Forever21, Target, H&M, etc. With their cheaper price tags I can try out the trend without spending big $$$ if it goes out of style.

Here are some options I have come across for this trend depending on your budget, from HIGH to LOW of course. :)


Wayyy too much $$$ in my book for a trendy item. Plus, these were super long on me & run really small. The perfect inseam for me is around 30" and these were prob around 33/34" so I would've had to spend more $ just to get them hemmed.

American Eagle

I like how you have the option of getting these in Short, Regular or Long. But for $45 I still feel like the price tag was way too high for this item.

Mossimo for Target

I've heard it runs small but that's prob b/c it's Junior sizes. I am looking to try a pair of these on sometime this week, but I can't decide between the blue or the red! The $23 price tag is exactly what I am looking for when it comes to a trendy item. Even if I only get a couple months of use from these I won't feel bad when the trend dies.

Did you go out and buy some colored denim? 
If so, let me know from where?

Product I LOVE: Butter me up!

I've heard alot of rants and raves about the Butter LONDON nail polish collection that finally made its way to the US. 

The name is catchy/genius for a nail polish, but @ $14 a bottle, I never even gave it a second thought!

That is...until I saw the range of colors @ ULTA. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! The colors all had such an iridescent & rich opaque quality to them.  


I started searching ebay, amazon & I'll have to check out my local Harmons to see if they carry these polishes for a cheaper price tag than $14!

Here are some of the colors I fell in love with...and I'm warning you now these pics do NO justice for the actual colors in person.
