Shop My Look: Winter Go-To

My go-to look this Fall/Winter has been a swing or dolman sleeve tee and booties! Something about the combination (plus a nice fitting pair of denim) feels oh so "put together" but super comfy all at the same time.

 ~ Date night with the Boy ~

I'm wearing an H&M Front Pocket Dolman Sleeve Tee, J. Crew Black Jeggings and Pelle Moda 'Tammi' Lace-up Booties. Added a couple bangles and done!

I mentioned the Pelle Moda Booties in my weekend pics post last week and they are just smoking hott! 

 The lovely ladies at Pelle Moda sent these over to me to try out and I must say they know my taste! The 4" + heel and 1" platform are perfect for a little 5'3" shoe lover like me and the lace-up front reveals a sexy peak of my feet. Reminds me of the Louboutin Circus Bootie from last season. Love!

If The Shoe Style Sells...Knock it Off

...Pretty sure that is the thought process of the Steve Madden Design Team on a daily basis. 

Steven's Mercyy looks a lot like the E&J Mason, no? 


STEVEN by Steve Madden Mercyy for $150 @ Loris Shoes

Elizabeth and James at ShopStyle

Elizabeth & James Mason for $375 @ Net-A-Porter


STEVEN by Steve Madden Mercyy for $150 @ Loris Shoes

Elizabeth and James at ShopStyle

Elizabeth & James Mason for $375 @ CUSP

For less than half the price of the Mason, STEVEN's Mercyy is a pretty good deal. BUT not as good as the $68 Colin Stuart Knockoffs that I posted about a couple week ago. Obviously the style is a hit I just get grumpy when Steve Madden knocks off everything!  

To each their own... Happy Shopping!!

Leopard Fulfillment

I finally found the perfect leopard shoes! Remember the Colin Stuart look for less pumps I posted about? Definitely had to order the leopard pair to see if they were as amazing in real life and they are!

Honestly, they actually might be more comfortable than my Elizabeth and James platforms- eek! They also remind me of Prada:

So happy I finally fulfilled the open Leopard "spot" in the shoe cabinet. I know a couple people bought them too- send me a pic if you did so I can post.

Happy Saturday!!

Look for WAY Less: Colin Stuart vs. Elizabeth & James

I was reading my daily blogs and stumbled upon a Colin Stuart post on Fashion by He. Umm... do the below platforms look familiar?!

Victoria's Secret at ShopStyle

Colin Stuart Platform for $68 @ Victoria Secret

Remember my Elizabeth & James Masons that I was OBSESSED OVER? Knock off central huh? And almost $240+ cheaper than the originals! 

 I don't know if I'm upset or happy... cuz I kind of like the leapord pair (smiley face). Either way they are a look for WAY less!

Shoe Trend: MTV EMAs

As I was perusing the latest celeb pics I noticed a big trend at the EMAs on Sunday: Peep Toe Platforms. Stars like Katy Perry, Shakira, and Eva Longoria all rocked the trend.

The platforms definitely elongate the leg and add amazing height. Love the slingback styles too. My favorite part about this trend is that you can find gorgeous pairs in all price ranges. We can all enjoy!!

Clarisonic Beauty Suite & Green Suede Shoes

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!

Sunday I stopped by the Clarisonic Beauty Suite at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel for a mini- facial and then attended a Look Good... Feel Better Panel on "The Lipstick Theory." It was a wonderful event all about beauty and helping Women battling cancer feel beautiful even when experiencing the worst side-effects of cancer treatment. Check out my coverage on The Beauty Stop. What I wore:

I wore my new-ish emerald platforms that I just love.  The color brings life to a basic platform silhouette. (Wore the black pair in SD two months ago) My go-to colors this season are shades of green, black and gray.  Always seems to look chic!

Unknowingly I put together an entire J. Crew outfit: black jeggings, waterfall cardi and floral tank. Apparently I own a lot of J. Crew! These pics were taken after my Clarisonic Mia Cleanse and make-up application at the Beauty Suite. I felt so refreshed!

Lanvin for H&M- SHOES!

They are finally here: Pictures from the Lanvin for H&M collection! Let's focus on the shoes...
Remember these lovelies I was obsessed with more than a year ago? Well you can find a serious look-a-like in the Lanvin for H&M Collection (below). As exciting as that is, it makes me think there was no new inspiration or ideas put into the Lanvin for H&M shoe collection. Just new prints and materials. I guess you can't really beat the price though. 

At $99 they are a STEAL compared to the $1,500 price point on the originals. The leopard pair may find their way into my closet if they don't sell out in 2.5 seconds. You know I'm a sucker for bows! What are your thoughts on the collection?

Weekend Pics

Happy Monday! I can't believe Halloween is over... Christmas is just around the corner. It was a busy weekend with Halloween Festivities, USC Homecoming and some shopping at the Grove. Here are a few fun pics: 

On Friday night I dressed up as Minnie Mouse. Found this fabulous polka-dot dress in my Mom's Closet -it's Marciano from the 80s and fit me perfectly!

Wore my bow Louboutins because I thought they were very Minnie-ey.

The USC Homecoming game was this weekend. Unfortunately we lost but at least our shoes were gold and fantastic. 

 My bestie made an amazing cotton candy costume and added cotton candy puffs to her shoes. So perfect!

The Nordstrom at the Grove has one of the best shoe selections. LOVE these sexy boots!
