Trends, Tips, and Snippets

This Blog was created due to my obsession with list making and keeping all of the things I wanted to buy organized. Eventually there were just too many lists, so I decided to start this, a blog where I could keep all of my thoughts, ideas, and prospective shopping all in one place.

Old School Wedding Charm

New Leather Jacket!!!

Aqua Snap-Tab Leather Jacket

PRICE: $298.00

Meet my new leather jacket by Aqua and from Bloomingdales! Originally $298, I bought it for a mere $166 on sale, a true find! Had to have it shipped from a New York bloomies because my store didn't have my size in black but that was barely a problem and it was worth it. Buying it in the off season also really pays off (especially since i knew I definitely wanted one for fall) because with spring here it was half off.  I can't wait to wear it with black jeggings and a cute chiffon top!

Who Wears Short Shorts

So what I'm really looking for this summer... what I'm really on the hunt for, is a pair of perfect fitting jean shorts. And not any old pair of jean shorts. SHORT jean shorts. Sure I love my array of vintage levis I've made into cutoffs myself over the years, but his summer they just won't cut it. Yes, my latest obsession is True Religion Joey jean shorts. At $172 if I can't have those I might, mighttt have to settle for Abercrombie flagship shorts at a much cheaper price of $58. Here are the two shorts below, with some celebs in the joey cutoffs as well:

Style Spotter #19

With an eclectic and globally conscious style, Brianna, a history and archeology major, wears a patterned dress from Marshall’s, a cream wide stretch belt from Urban Outfitters, a cream faux-crocodile leather bag also from Urban, and brown leather braided flip flops from American Eagle. Her accessories include a hammered silver ring purchased at payless, white rose-shaped studs from forever 21, and wrap bracelets from both Ecuador and China.  I caught up with Brianna and asked her a few questions:

How would you describe your style?
“I just throw things together. I wear a lot of dresses. I have more of a cultural wardrobe than anything; I like patterns and things made in other countries, I might describe my style as a bit feminine as well.”

Where do you like to shop?
“Forever 21 is my favorite, and T.J. Maxx is my second- you can find great things very cheap there.”

Favorite article of clothing you own right now?
“I have like 65 dresses, but I just got a one-shoulder banded gold dress which I love.”

Where do you go to for inspiration?
“I look at national geographic a lot. I find pictures with patterns and tribal prints and try to recreate them or find similar things in stores.”
