Customized Bomber ft. eShakti

Have you ever had an issue while shopping, trying to find the perfect fit item that you're absolutely obsessed with? I know more often than not I'll love an item on the hanger, but something about how it sits on my body may not be right.

Obviously this is part of shopping 101, try on EVERYTHING, but what are you supposed to do when you can't? eShakti has a great selection of clothing that you can customize in both cut and fit so you know you'll love an item the second you see it.

When selecting an item, you can adjust things such as the neckline (whether you want a vneck, boat neck etc) as well as inputting your personal measurements to guarantee the perfect fit. I've linked this bomber to their website, and you'll notice that on the mannequin it hits at the waist. I prefer longer jackets but was so in love with the print and knew that if the length was adjusted it would be perfect. I also gave my measurements just to make sure that the jacket didn't sit awkwardly on me.

Now that I actually have the jacket, I am beyond thrilled. While I do wish that it was a bit warmer for the cold months ahead, the website does give specifics such as fabric content. I just knew I needed this jacket even if it's getting too chilly to wear on it's own, it's definitely great to have around the office.

Thank you so much eShakti for this lovely sample and be sure to click the links above to check out their selection!

Autumn Eve







 Dress :: Loft
Boots :: Sam Edelman
Watch :: bebe similar here and here

The weather is changing way too fast! Suddenly it feels like fall when it was 90 degrees just a few days ago, but you don't have to give up your favorite summer styles just yet. High boots can make any shorter outfit more comfortable as the temperatures drop. 

As much as I wish summer could stay, I love wearing fall colors like this mustard yellow. A small print and piping makes this dress fun for a weekend out or even appropriate for work because it's not too loud. I have to say that my favorite detail is the piping. It makes a traditional look more interesting without going overboard.

With this outfit, I was looking for a different way to style my second day hair. Having curly hair means that you really shouldn't wash it every day because it needs the oils and is already basically damaged. In an attempt to get creative, I went with some heidi braids and a good ol Canadian tuxedo.

Weekend Wants: New Fall Fashions

Hello lovelies!

My apologies for not being around much these last few weeks, but New York Fashion Week has gotten the best of me. With a runway show the first day of MBFW I was working endless hours BUT now I have a bit of time to get back into blogging.

With a little more time for myself, I took some time to peruse a few online shops and couldn't help but fall in love with Jaci Boutique's newest pieces (and the fabulous new look on their website)! I'll definitely be snagging some of these for fall, especially those high waisted jeans!

And don't forget, you can get 20% off at Jaci Boutique with the code found on the right panel of my page :)

Want It Wednesday: Vegas Getaway

As a part of this week's Want It Wednesday, I've been given the opportunity to style a few looks for a fun trip to the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

I don't know about you, but so many people I know have been visiting Vegas and it is making me crave a getaway like crazy. If I could go right now, the Cosmopolitan would definitely be one of my top picks with so many different restaurants to offer as well as a great nightlife.

Below are two looks that I think would transition well throughout a day at the Cosmo, because in all honesty you would probably either find me poolside, eating, or partying haha

Details of all of the fun places I mention can be found here

Now go checkout #MyCosmoStyle and let me know what you would bring on this fun getaway ;P


Lounging Poolside


While in Vegas you NEED to have a fabulous look when you're poolside. I paired this cute mix n match bikini with a body chain, some cute shades, and a funky mesh cover-up for when I've had enough sun.

I chose two shoe options: the flat Birkenstocks for a lazy day poolside and the cork wedges for hanging out at the Marquee Day Club where DJs keep the party going as long as the sun is up.


Night out at the Cosmo



H M short ruffle dress, $41 / Jane Norman peplum jacket, $83 / Wedding wedge sandals / Bib necklace / Michael Kors horn watch / MAKE UP FOR EVER voluminous mascara / NARS Cosmetics lips makeup

During a dream vacation at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, you need to be prepared to keep the party going. This look could easily take you from a nice selection of tapas at Jaleo to a night of partying at the Marquee Night Club or a more tame night at The Chandelier, a tri-level bar/club that offers a different atmosphere on each floor.

I have to say that I am so in love with this H&M dress that I will probably be snagging it for myself shortly. With a deep v neckline at the back it definitely is a sophisticated sexy.

We Can Do It

Bandana :: Walmart similar here

Sorry for missing the last few Friday posts! If you follow my Instagram account, you'll know that I've been fighting a cold for the last few weeks that always kicks my butt by the weekend. I was finally given medication and will hopefully be on the way to a full recovery shortly. :)

In today's post I'm channeling my inner modern Rosie the Riveter. I can never say no to a denim button down and a basic updo with a bandana. This retro look is great for a crazy day of errands and can be dressed up for a more chic day out with cute jewelry like this statement necklace. You can never go wrong with a classic look.
