Welcome back everyone! I’m so happy to finally share with you guys this new look I came up with in collaboration with ThredUp. ThredUp is a shop where you can buy and sell secondhand clothes. They provide a description on each item’s condition so that way you have an idea of how it will look like when it arrives. Sometimes the clothes will even have their tags still on them! For this look I chose this red leather skirt from Forever 21 that was being sold on ThredUp for a fraction of the original cost. The skirt was in mint condition, seriously it looked like it hadn’t been used at all.

When I saw this leather skirt I knew I wanted to do a retro glam look. Instantly I was in need of a Coca Cola t-shirt so the search began. My original idea: a white shirt with red letters but only in my dreams would I have found this perfect shirt. After searching high and low for this t-shirt I tried my luck at Target. Unfortunately, they only had some tees for men. So after searching at Target and various other stores, I thought about trying my luck at the Ross that was right next door. I walked to the women’s section and I saw a handful of these Coca Cola tees. Booyah, I was in shirt heaven basically.

Being that the t-shirt was a heather grey, I looked for shoes that matched. I thought these  pointy toe pumps from Nine West were exactly what this outfit needed. And of course to top it all off, I needed red lipstick. In this look I am wearing Rimmel’s The Only 1 Matte Lipstick in Call the Shots and on top I put Rimmel’s Oh My Gloss! Oil Tint in Pop Poppy, which I will have full swatches and reviews coming soon.

I hope you enjoyed this cool new look! If you’re doing some Spring cleaning definitely check out ThredUp and make some money selling clothes that you no longer wear or want. I know I will be doing this soon as well. Until next time, peace out!

May is in and April is out which means Mother’s Day is slowly approaching and our seniors will be graduating. What would be better than to give them a brand new watch? JORD Watches is a unique watch company that makes their products out of natural wood. Their watches come in three movements: premium quartz, chronograph, and automatic. The watch I received is from the Reece Series in the Zebrawood finish.

Right off the bat, I was really pleased with the watch style especially since I don’t own any rectangular watches. The watch feels extremely sturdy yet still manages to be lightweight. Fortunately, my watch fit perfectly snug on my wrist and I didn’t need to adjust it. JORD has watch sizing available when placing your order therefore helping you avoid the hassle of sizing your watch when it arrives at your home. In the case that the watch was too tight, I did receive two extra wristband pieces which was great.

Since JORD watches are unique they are incredibly fun to style. I love that the face of the watch is a stunning emerald green so I decided that I would pair it with another similar green item. In this case, I chose an olive cargo mini skirt from Forever 21. Nothing screams Spring more than this floral print off the shoulder blouse that’s also from Forever 21. As you can tell even an outfit like this which includes metallic heels from Agaci can look gorgeous with a JORD watch.

Even better, JORD offers free engraving on their watches which adds that special touch when gifted to your mom or grad. If I had to choose one watch to give to my mom for Mother’s Day it would be Cora Series in Zebrawood and Rosé. Okay Alejandra, but what if I want to buy a watch for a guy? No worries, JORD offers a wide selection of men’s watches too.

Giveaway Details: JORD was kind enough to offer a giveaway for my readers. The giveaway winner will receive a $100 gift code to their store. In addition, anyone who enters will receive a $50 gift code. Either way, everyone who enters wins something! Now to be a winner all you have to do is click here to fill out this form. Simple as pie! Giveaway closes on May 14, 2017 at 11:59PM EST.

Good luck everyone and hope you find some lovely pieces for your friends and family. Until next time, peace out!

Welcome back to another Fashion Friday post! So last week was a bit more sports chic but this week we’re going with casual chic. Sometimes a casual outfit just needs a good pair of heels to bring it up a notch. I decided to go with some strappy heels since this pair has a shorter heel. If I know I’m going to be doing a good deal of walking, I save my feet the pain and go for some more comfortable heels.

When I looked through my closet I knew I had to pair my heels with a dark wash pair of denim. These are from Levi’s Curve ID line which unfortunately seems that have been discounted. These were the only pair of jeans that would fit perfectly so not sure where I’m going to start buying my jeans anymore. If you have any recommendations let me know! Also, these were always high rise so they’re perfect for outfits with crop tops, like this one. My layered crop top contrasted perfectly with the dark jeans and heels too.

Mirrored lens sunglasses are in for the season so I had to get my hands on some. Fortunately I found some that weren’t too big for my face and were on the affordable side. This pair has a black polish frame which I thought fit perfectly with the overall look. Hope you all enjoyed today’s post and be prepared for a special post coming this Sunday. Until next time, peace out!
