Holidays 2016 Gift Guide: For The #GirlBoss | 1 comment:



 Can you believe Christmas is almost here?! Time is just flying by! I know we're all doing some last minute shopping here so I thought I'd include one of my favorite gift guides which is for the #girlboss! I made sure that all of these gifts are practical yet stylish cause who wants to receive boring stuff on Christmas? Plus cute things always make me want to use them more! haha. Here's what I'm loving:



Black Blazer - Every #GirlBoss needs a professional black blazer am I right? She can wear it to the office, lunch meetings, and even pair it with some jeans for a casual look on the weekends. 

Tote - Blush pink and gold are always a hit in my book, plus there's enough room to store your laptop in there as well! I also linked some more budget-friendly options below.

Portable Charger - Whether I'm updating social media or checking my emails, I'm constantly on my phone 24/7 and desperately need a portable charger that I can carry wherever I go. I love this evil eye one but also this floral one that also comes with a matching case from Sonix. 

Laptop Sleeve - I'm obsessed with this one from Kate Spade which has a cute saying on it and will keep your laptop protected in your bag. 

Business Card Holder - Another Kate Spade find in a cute polka dot pattern which will make it easy to find in your bag and stores all your important business cards.

Office Supplies - It can get hard to find stylish office supplies but I love these monogram marble notebooks and how cute are these pens from Ban.do?!



Thanks for reading! Happy shopping,

Presentation Style With Placement | 1 comment:







Blazer: Rag & Bone via Placement Boutique // Clutch: Placement Boutique // Shirt: Express // Jeans: J. Crew // Necklace: J. Crew // Shoes: Sam Edelman // Lipstick: Maybelline "Divine Wine" 



 Happy Monday! I know the next few weeks are going to be painful to say the least since we're nearing the end of the semester and finals are coming up. On top of it, all those presentations ugh. I have three coming up this week and it's hard finding professional clothes to wear that are stylish and unique. But that's where Placement boutique comes in! They're a local boutique that's located in Eastview Mall over in Victor, NY and I'm shocked by all the brands that they carry! Sadly, Rochester is lacking in the designer brands department so it's nice to go to a place where they have so many brands that I used to be able to only find online. I'm talking Cupcakes & Cashmere, Vince, and even Sara Happ products!

If you've been following me on Instagram then you would've already seen my favorites that I picked out from the boutique last week which includes holiday party dresses, coats, and beautiful accessories. They were kind enough to lend me this beautiful Rag & Bone blazer (check out the collar details!) and blue clutch that says "Mine All Mine" on it! I can totally picture myself wearing this to presentations and then heading to dinner to celebrate the end of the semester later on that day. While boutiques have the stigma that they're "expensive", that's not the case with Placement which wasn't intimidating at all and had a variety of clothes for budgets of all kinds. While this blazer is an investment piece, the clutch is actually $20! 

The best part is that they're having a pop-up shop over at St. John Fisher College (aka the school I go to) during free period so if you're a student, make sure to stop by and check out their selection! I'll be there procrastinating studying and talking fashion so it'll be fun!

Holiday Glamour With Tobi | No comments:





Dress: c/o Tobi // Necklace: J. Crew // Shoes: Sam Edelman // Lips: Mac "Russian Red" // Clutch: TJ Maxx



For my second look with Tobi, I wanted to go with something a little more glamorous and right when I saw this "Neverland" dress I knew I had to have it. One of my favorite colors is teal and sadly I don't own too many teal pieces in my closet cause I can never find anything in that color! Strange right? Plus the high-low hemline makes this dress look so unique. It's perfect for fancy holiday parties or even a winter wedding! I paired it with my favorite statement necklace for some sparkle, some leopard heels, and a red lip. The best part is that it's on FINAL sale for $38 so make sure to get it before it's sold out for good. They also have it in a navy blue which is just as pretty! Oh and did I mention they always have free shipping? Yup, the deal couldn't be more perfect. 


Happy shopping!

Winter White | 1 comment:




Top: Ralph Lauren // Skirt: c/o Romwe // Clutch: TJ Maxx


The Monday after break is always the hardest isn't it? I'm totally not ready for two more weeks of school and finals but what can ya do. In the meantime, I'm working on more collaborations and this time it's with Romwe! They sent this white lace up skirt which is perfect to wear all year long but especially during the winter. I'm not one of those people that believes that you can't wear white after labor day. It's such an old fashioned rule and white looks even better during the winter cause it's so unexpected.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get a lot of good shots of the outfit because the weather has been awful lately and I just wasn't feeling how my face looks haha. It's just one of those days! I decided to pair it with black tights and a black turtleneck so the focus of the outfit would be on the skirt. I love the lace up detail and it would look perfect for a classy dinner or other special occasion. The one bad thing I have to say about the skirt is that it's not fully lined in the back and runs small so make sure to size up. While I love Romwe's large variety of clothes and affordable prices, I was a bit disappointed with the skirt's quality but if you wear a slip underneath it'll look much better.

Black Friday 2016 Favorites | No comments:


I absolutely hate crowds and long lines and it's been years since I've gone out for Black Friday cause online shopping is just so much better! Luckily, this year it seems that every online shop out there is starting their sales early instead of waiting until Cyber Monday. I decided to link some of my favorites from various shops and hopefully you'll be able to grab them before they sell out! Here's what I'm loving: 



Shopbop - For this week only, Shopbop is doing 15% off orders of $200+, 20% off orders of $500+, and 25% off for orders of $800+. I'm obsessed with the unique sweaters they carry such as this Autumn Cashmere Sweater with the bow tie in the back!

Kate Spade - Get 30% off your purchase with the code "THANKFUL" and grab yourself a new purse such as the Orchard Street Arla in a gorgeous perwinkle. 

Baublebar - Get 30% off with the code "THANKS30" and stock up on some sparkly pieces that are perfect for New Year's such as the beautiful Amaryllis Soft Floral Drop earrings that will look perfect with a LBD. 

J. Crew - Get 40% off with the code "HOLIDAY" and save on these pink Lena Leather Pumps with the patent black cap toes! So adorable and perfect to wear for internships or presentations. 

Kendra Scott - Get 20% off with the code "SALE20" and save on these Caroline Earrings and others.

Club Monaco - Black Friday is one of the rare times of year where I can actually afford to buy something from Club Monaco haha. They are doing 25% off when you purchase $150+ with the code "THANKS". How cute is their Violet Feather Vest?!

Casual Thanksgiving With Tobi | No comments:






Jacket: Zara // Dress: c/o Tobi // Boots: Kenneth Cole Reaction // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban // Hat: TJ Maxx // Bag: Rebecca Minkoff // Lips: Bobbi Brown Art Stick in "Rich Nude" 


Happy Thanksgiving everyone! There's so much to be thankful for this year such as my family, friends, my readers, getting coverage in the local media, and of course some incredible collaborations. For today's post, I was able to partner with Tobi, which is an online shop that I'm quite familiar with since they carry so many trendy and stylish pieces that's perfect for us fashionistas.

They were kind enough to send me three dresses (so hard to choose just three!) and I decided to wear this one for Thanksgiving today cause it's so cozy and pairs well with my go-to leather jacket. I'm usually hesitant when I order sweaters since I have sensitive skin and some materials that sweaters are made out of bother me, but this one was so soft! The dress is actually sleeveless so for you gals that live in warm climates, it's perfect to skip the tights and just pair with some ankle or OTK boots. For size reference, I sized up and went with a large since judging from the picture online, the dress runs small and I wanted it to be fit a little more loose and not ride up as I walked like most tight dresses do. 

The best part is they're running a Black Friday sale and everything is 50% off and 60% off items that are black! Make sure to take advantage and stock up on some essentials for your winter wardrobe!




What are you wearing for Thanksgiving? Do you prefer something more casual or fancy? Let me know!

POPSUGAR November Must Have Box | No comments:

(Sponsored by POPSUGAR. Received Must Have Box complimentary for review purposes. All opinions are my own.) 


Right when the UPS guy dropped off this Must Have Box in front of my doorstep, I had a feeling this would be a good one. I have this strange belief that heavier boxes always have better stuff in it! haha and I was right! The theme of the November Must Have Box was obviously Thanksgiving, but not in that tacky sort of way but instead I saw it as being elegant and perfect for anyone who loves to throw a good holiday party. Here's what I got:


Meri Meri Star Party Picks 

I had the sudden urge to bake something just so I can use these star party picks from Meri Meri! They come in gold and silver glitter stars and comes in two sizes. Perfect to put on top of cupcakes or other desserts for your next holiday party!
 

AJ Goods Handmade Decorative Wire Bowl 

This was the reason why the box was so heavy! They included this cute wire bowl that's handmade and you can easily put candy or fruit in it. I wish the color wasn't grey cause that doesn't seem very festive to me. Maybe white? Oh well, what can ya do. 


Kendra Scott Elaina Rose Gold Bracelet in White Pearl

If I can only choose one thing that I loved from the past couple of months of POPSUGAR boxes, IT WOULD BE THIS. I never would've expected them to put a Kendra Scott bracelet in here but yup it happened! I've always wanted to own a Kendra Scott piece but could never make up my mind on what to get so this was perfect for me. Plus I'm a big fan of rose gold and white just goes with everything so I think they did a great job with this. You can either wear it alone or layer it with some other bracelets but either way, it's gorgeous! They also included a 20% off coupon for your next purchase #winning


Stowaway Cosmetics Dawn to Dusk Palette

I've never heard of Stowaway cosmetics but that's what I love about subscription boxes, you always find out about new brands! The line is all about creating makeup in small sizes so you can take them with you anywhere. I love how this palette has a nice range of neutrals but it's also shimmery so it's nice for the holidays! Despite being powder shadows, they were super pigmented, creamy, and went on nicely. There was a bit of fading so make sure to use primer before applying! They also included a 25% off your purchase of $50 or more coupon. 


Pehr Chambray Runner 

Can this be anymore perfect?! My favorite color is maroon so I love that they included this maroon and white runner in a soft chambray material that's going to look amazing on my table. I think I might just use this for Friendsgiving that I'm throwing the day after Thanksgiving which would like nice for a casual, daytime event. They also included a 25% off your entire order coupon. 

Oogie's Gourmet Toffee Butter Popcorn (not pictured)

I love snacks as much as the next person, but I just didn't like these and maybe that's because I'm not a fan of toffee butter or even have a sweet tooth all that much. Although I have a feeling next month, POPSUGAR will probably include something with peppermint in it which I'm looking forward to! 



Overall, I'm quite pleased with this Must Have Box and can't wait to see what the December one is going to be like! I'm thinking tons of sparkle and red! Or maybe an ornament? Half the fun of subscription boxes is trying to guess what's going to be inside the next one! Make sure to use the code "SHOP5" to get $5 off your first Must Have Box.
