I know this is not a style everyone will embrace, but for those of
you looking to rock something a little different on your hand, the
"claw" ring is one of the hot new trends in jewelry for spring. The splurge version
is handmade and more detailed, but if you are simply looking for a cool
piece of trendy jewelry, the steal version is a cool alternative.
Would you wear this style? I just ordered the "steal" ring for myself ♥
Canadian retailer Joe Fresh launched online at JcPenney today! Having never shopping the Joe Fresh brand and always seeing the affordable fashion line in magazines, I am looking forward to seeing the full collection in stores this March, especially to check out sizing. The clothing starts at only $8 for basics and crop jeans in a variety of fun colors for only $19. Lots of bright colors and fresh prints dominate the collection for Spring.
What do you think of Joe Fresh, will you be heading to your local JCP store to shop?
These are my New pieces from Target that I couldn't wait to share (and wear!). Luckily, my store was sold out of my sizes, so I took advantage of Target's online promo to save 20% off any $75 purchase or more.
1 Leopard Dress The fit of this dress is so flattering and it is slightly past my knees (a big plus for me) and I love a good animal print.
2 Striped Peplum So fresh and easy to wear with my weekend uniform of denim and more denim.
3 Gap Infinity Scarf Looking to add a pop of Neon Pink to my navy and grey basics.
4 Mossimo Nude Pumps Target shoes fit me about half the time..fingers crossed.
My Ipsy Glam Bag (finally) arrived! The theme for February is "Red Carpet Ready" and includes all make-up products with a focus on eyes. This is a monthly beauty subscription that only costs $10 and you can cancel at any time. I prefer a mix that includes make-up and skin care items, but for the money, I'm not complaining, it's still a great deal and I really love trying new products. There is currently a wait list to start receiving your monthly beauty bag, so sign up now here.

I just wanted to share my amazing find at Zara with everyone in case you get a chance to stop by their store. I wasn't looking for a denim jacket, but this distressed style in one of the hot colors for spring (hellopistachio-mint) fit perfectly and when I spotted the $20 price tag (reg $59) I knew I had to have it! There were so many in-store deals, I only wish I had more time to shop ♥
I paired the jacket in store with a gorgeous flowy peach skirt for an edgier look and
I'm now on the hunt for a more affordable version! Let me know if you see anything ;-)
When Prabal Gurung for Target launched over a week ago, the shoes were the quickest to sell out and if you were like me, you had to blindly order a pair online hoping they would fit. For me, I wasn't so lucky, I was swimming in these black and white beauties and still wanted a similar look for the new season. I walked into Marshalls and spotted a brand new display of Nine West wedges and they fit ♥
I stumbled upon this new and relatively small collab featuring designer Nate Berkus for Mead available at select Target locations. Nate is a household name for many of us after launching a successful home collection for Target late last year. This collection of chic stationary and desk accessories is focused on making your space organized and stylish. Seeing new magazine holders, pencil cups and binder clips in bold patterns got my heart racing a bit (my obsession with organizing began as a young child). Even if you aren't planning to purchase this particular line of products, I hope this inspires you to add some color to your space and get organized this year. Redecorating and beautifying even a small part of your home or work space can change your life..you can do it! *Nate Berkus Home Collection is now 50% off in storesat Target

The yellow stripes are my favorite, cheery and a bit nautical
Topshop and Topman opened their first Los Angeles store yesterday at The Grove. The British import has been popular among celebrities and fashionistas for it's trendy clothing and accessories with an edge. This is a beautiful two-story location, with Topshop occupying the first floor and Topman, women's petites, and shoes on the second floor.
I arrived just after they opened their doors this morning and it was already crowded with shoppers, lots of employees (seriously, a ridiculous amount), and the smell of freshly painted walls, not fun. I took a quick lapse around the store to check things out, but it was virtually impossible to actually shop. The clothing and handbags, etc. are on the pricier side of the Forever 21/ H&M spectrum, but I knew that going into the store, thanks to shopping Topshop at Nordstrom (..and patiently waiting for sale prices). So, I left empty handed, but that's okay, Zara is right around the corner ♥
Have you visited Topshop - what do you think of their store?
It's finally here!
The fashionable mannequins that greet you at the entrance
Each style of clothing was grouped together to resemble mix and match outfits on the wall
This dress was $120, I've seen cuter dresses for $25 at Target
The "cheaper" handbags are $40 and very lightweight
I loved all of their displays, super cute
(I took this pic while in motion, a bunch of girls were heading straight for me
with no signs of slowing down)
Always love a girl in polka dots (maybe not with plaid though)
Wall of handbags
The massive shoe department
The brightly colored walls added a cool vibe to the store
The view on the way up
Topman section of the store had more employees in it than shoppers, I guess men don't rush to new stores openings like women do, go figure.
Topman department looked almost untouched
This line formed almost immediately after the doors opened and grew fast
A free photo booth to upload your Topshop looks to Facebook
Their well packaged make-up department accented with stripes and polka dots
Black and cream is a classic color combination that never goes out of style. Here is a sampling of what I have seen in my shopping travels this week..with some pistachio thrown in for a fresh pop of color ♥
I love popping into Old Navy, even if only for a few minutes. There is always something cute (and super affordable) to make me smile. These graphic t-shirts in bright neon colors are so fun and some are just in time for Valentine's Day. My personal favorite is "Passion for Fashion", so even if I can't being wearing my favorite designer wardrobe running errands, my fashion "message" will be clear and and I don't care who knows it ♥
The highly anticipated Prabal Gurung for Target is finally here! After stopping at 3 "regular" Target stores and only seeing a small collection of what was supposed to be available, I made my way to a Target Greatland location and feasted my eyes on this lovely collection. I took pictures of almost every item available so you can shop with me and decide for yourself what you want. I included sizing notes on as many pieces as I could, in case you can't make it to the store and something is still available to shop online here ♥ For reference I am just under 5'5'' and usually prefer a medium in almost everything (in case shrinkage occurs and I like things to be a tad loose for a less structured, not sloppy look).
What are you favorites?
I was the only customer shopping at my first (of four) Target stops.
Valentine's Day is less than 10 days away (or less depending on when you are reading this!) and I found some gifts to treat yourself to a happy hearts day, no strings attached ♥ (Ryan Gosling not included)
