10 things...

that you should have in your bag/purse. I bet you girls out there all carry a bag or purse everywhere. Well here are a few things that I think would be handy to have with you. Of course, you'll have essentials like wallet, keys and phone. These items are just kind of random things that I always find myself needing at some point. This is in no particular order. #1: Advil I find that one of the most common things people ask other people for is Advil. Advil is great for headaches and general pain relief. You can find a little travel size tube of this at Target, Walgreens, etc. Those are nice because they are small and hold just the right amount. Also, the tube is reusable so you can just fill it later on and/or add other medicines. #2: Feminine products Oh yeah, you know what I'm talking about. This happens to all of us. I don't think this needs much explain. At least carry one just in case! #3: Lip Balm This is my daily essential. Although with Burt&#

Printed Pants

Printed Pants by leshautecouture featuring cotton pants My obsession with printed pants/leggings is out of control! I'm sure I'm not the only one because I see them all over stores now. I use to think they were really out there and too loud for me but now that more prints and colors are being made, I think they are really cute.  Here are a few examples of printed pants. Some are crazy and bright, while others are muted with black and white. The tribal print has been my favorite lately like in this past post and this one. My second favorite is floral print. Like these from Paige. The colors work so well for fall. They hit right at the ankle making it not too long and not too short to be considered cropped pants. Looks great with heels! (picture via With printed pants, you have to accessorize well. By that, I mean less is more. The print already calls a lot of attention. Use accessories to tone it down. If you are hesitant to try this new, fun

Cyber Monday

Hey ya'll! Hope you are recovering from the holiday weekend. Don't put that wallet away quite yet because today is CYBER MONDAY! For those who are unsure what this is exactly, it's where you get "Black Friday" deals on the following Monday after BF. A lot of companies will have promos and sales on their online site. Like I did for Friday, I have found some great online deals for you guys to check out! I even included the code in some of the pictures to help you out! Forever 21 Their sale is so good! Such good deals on a lot of items! It is up to 70% off AND free shipping! Score! They have sweaters, pants, blazers and accessories for sale. Find it at Marc Jacobs is offering 40% these select collections! Are you freaking out? Because this is a huge sale!

Black Friday Deals

In need of Black Friday deals? Check out ones that I have found for you! Forever 21 EXTRA 50% OFF SALE ITEMS ONLINE! Time to time, Forever 21 will do a promo like this to clear out clearance inventory. Our gain because that's a great deal!

They also have sweaters that start at $10.80, which is in-store and online. H&M H&M has these great deals!

I saw a bunch of commercials and ads for it so I'm

Dat ____ Cray

You can say my shirt was inspired from the song by Kanye. Just a fun photo for you readers!  I wore this gray muscle tee with a pair of high waisted cut off shorts from Levis. I wish I could say I constructed the shorts myself, but I had a hard time finding the right high waisted pants to cut. So I opted to buy a pair of already made ones. These are vintage jeans that have been cut into shorts and distressed. The distress on the shorts are getting loose and will probably just look like holes soon. But nonetheless, I still really like them. The distress is shown in the front, side and back. Ignore the weird gathering, it's because they are cut offs of jeans and high waisted. These clear glasses are just clear lens. I actually got them at a concert. My friend was working a booth and got them for me. I've worn them occasionally but thought it worked well with this outfit.   I didn't accessorize much with this. Just my usual every day jewelry. For shoes, I

AMA 2012

I have been waiting for this for weeks! Not only for the fashion but for the performances and winners as well. I thought it was a good show overall. The line up for performers were great! One night of amazing artists, sharing their love of music. Dick Clark is brillent for thinking of this. Of course, I am here to recap my favorite red carpet looks of the night. Luke Bryan I'm obsessed. This country man looks great in a suit. Every time he steps out on the red carpet, he is so charming. And he won male country artist of the year! Woo! Ladies, take a minute and take his good looks in.  Carrie Underwood She had three dress changes! This was her red carpet look, then she changed into a blue dress when the show started, then changed into a black dress when she performed! Way to go Carrie. Each look was so gorgeous on her! I've said this multiple times already but I can't get over how pretty she is! This is my favorite dress on her from the night. I like the color a
