Shop Like a Fashion Editor…

Fashion Editors are known for having innovative style and quirky taste. So its only right that they shop at boutiques and e-stores that offer off the cuff designer merchandise.

Avenue 32 offers designer goods that you might not see anywhere else. It’s the perfect place to cop a statement piece. They offer pieces from Preen, Thakoon, Temperley London, Alexander Lewis, Giles, Carven, and the list goes on…

*** remember that fashion editors mix high with low so always keep basics from H&M, Gap, Forever 21 and etc… on standby***

My To Buy List…

Good Morning Loves, it seems like forever and a day since I last posted. For those who don’t know I am a special education teacher by day and last week was crazy, BUT I’m back to kick off the week right…

I wanted to share with you my wish list for this month.

Every month I re-analyze my wardrobe and pick pieces I need to add. Here are my picks…

byredo_pulp

Retails for $145 for 100 ML

I am turning into a parfum snob. I discovered this parfum on www.netaporter.com and I instantly wanted it. I am a sucker for fruity scents and I’m sure this will be my new fave

Mary Greenwell Plum Parfum

o_14821

Retails for $100

Told y’all I’m becoming a parfum snob… LOL

 

Givenchy Antigona Clutch in Yellow

untitled

Retails for $450

I love simple clutches. And this yellow leather one will probably become my summer bag

 

Old Navy Jeans

cn7659127 cn7129962 cn6207906 cn7239100

Retails for $16-$35

I love love Old Navy Jeans in the “Rockstar” cut. Definitely a staple in my wardrobe and they make my butt look nice.

Okay so my wish list is kinda pricey… I will probably get the clutch first and then work my way from there. What items will you be adding to your summer wardrobe?

 

Designer Alert: Bianca Milov

Who doesn’t love accesories?!?!?!? While reading People Stylewatch, I kept noticing  jewelry from a designer whose name did not sound familiar. The name was Bianca Milov.

Milov makes quality costume jewelry that is dainty and can be layered to make a statement. She does have pricy merchandise but thats because they contain authentic diamonds. *swoons*

Head to http://biancamilov.com to check out her jewelry…

 

Here are my favorite picks….

Goodbye Dark Circles

Good Afternoon my loves!! I am back after a short hiatus to give you a quick product review.

Hi my name is Jaime and I suffer from dark circles. Unfortunately for me I have dark circles due to heredity and lack of sleep. So over the years concealer has become by BFF. Recently I decided to invest in an eye cream so that I don’t have to wear concealer all the time. When I ordered my dip brow and baked eyeshadow from Sephora, I also tried deluxe samples of Tarte’s Maracuja C-Brighter™ Eye Treatment and Origins GinZing™ Refreshing Eye Cream.

Tarte

s1486836-main-hero

 

Origins

s1375625-main-hero

After trying both for two weeks both, I decided to purchase the full size jar of Origins for the following reasons:

  • It not only reduced the appearance of my dark circles but it also depuffed my eyes rapidly
  • The cream had a better texture
  • A little bit goes a long way
  • Better Priced

Tarte took to long to make my eyes look less puffy and I still had to use more concealer to even out the skin around my eyes. With Origins I looked more awake and refreshed and used less concealer. Also the price was a big factor too. Origins only cost $30 where as Tarte cost $38. Eye cream is a reoccurring purchase and why pay more for a product that takes longer to work??

Origins has now earned a loyal customer.  www.sephora.com

 

Have you tried any of their products before? What were your thoughts?

 

My Weekend Haul…

On the weekends, when I don’t have many bills I like to treat myself…

Here is my some of my haul….

Michael Kors Blair Tri-Color boat shoes. I lucked up because on the website they are listed for $110 but in the Michael Kors store, they were on sale for $55. I think these will be the perfect shoes for work

I also purchased M.A.C. Studio Sculpt Lash. I LOVE LOVE this mascara. The brush applicator is GENIUS. It add length to my lashes without getting clumpy or messy. It also did a great job with lash separation and definition. Definitely worth the $16. *** You have to use this with the prep + prime lash for maximum results*** its sooooo worth it.

 

 

 

Note: I have purchased more items, but unfortunately when I tried to upload the pics that I took with my camera, the photos exceeded the MB limit for wordpress… UGH…. When I figure it out, I will post the other goodies that I have purchased.
