fashion friday. dresses, tights, and ankle boots. June 12, 2009

Okay, so I decided to present these outfits in a different way this time (and future times, probably), by using Polyvore to put the clothes into one cohesive image, rather than a million different pictures. Those pictures were extremely hard to format, and while I do not consider this way any better, in terms of aesthetics (on the contrary, I did like the find the other way better to look at), I do find it much, much easier to do. So there you go. This week I put together a cute, sleeveless dress, footed tights, and ankle boots for your viewing pleasure. Once again, these outfits are put together by category: under $20, under $40, and under $1000. The over $1000 category is way too impractical and works mostly for single items, rather than whole outfits, so don’t expect to happen any time soon. Anyway, onto the outfits!

under $20
All of the items above are priced less than $20. What you can’t see in this picture of those white (“cream”) tights is that they have a lace pattern on them that is quite nice. You can get them here, at Forever21, and they are on sale for $2.99. I think that three dollars for tights is lovely, don’t you? Next up, the dress. It’s $19.50 at Wet Seal, here, and comes in sizes small to large. Okay, so the deal with those boots? Newport News (those bastards…) do not have a picture of the shoe color that I chose from their website. What kind of retailer are they?! Disgusting… But, they *did* have a swatch of the color, which is what is in front of you now. Yeah, that purple color. Your job: imagine those boots, in that color. And get them here, for $17.99, and choose from sizes 5 to 10 and 11.

save $40
All of the items above are priced less than $40. These tights are so gorgeously purple (or “lily,” as Shopbop describes them…), and I love them. Get them here, for $36. They come in sizes small to medium/large (with two sizes in between, so go check it out). Next up, that lovely dress. Lace is a love of mine, of course. I think the contrast of girly and down-to-earth (from the boots) make for a nice combination. Get it here, at Forever21, for $22.80. The dress comes in sizes extra small to large. I really like these boots, as well, although I know that some of you dear readers won’t. They are cowboy boots, after all. You can buy them here, in sizes 6 to 9, from Wet Seal.

under $1000
All of the items above are priced less than $1000. I like this outfit most of all (at least, I think so… I really like all of the outfits, though), mostly because of the boots and the dress. So retro! Anyway, the tights are available here, at Shopbop, and they come in size 4 (which I take to mean the regular tights sizing and not juniors or misses sizing…). Yes, they are foldover, but who’s really going to see that when you have that dress on? Also, I know that these only have one size available right now, but I’m so sure that that will change soon that I decided to post them anyway. So there. The dress is from Anthropologie (after that disgusting romper, I needed something to remind me how awesome this store is most of the time…), and you can find it here, for $128. It comes in sizes extra small to large. Finally, those fabulous boots! Look at that bow! Get them here, at ModCloth, for $42.99. You can choose from sizes 5.5 to 9, and you better. Who better to wear these shoes than one of my readers? Oh, right. ME.

terrible tuesday. surplice romper. June 9, 2009

What I am thinking can be summed up in six words: what the fuck is this shit?

surplice romper.

If  you decide that you like this, um, thing, feel free to get it here at Anthropologie, where terribleness costs $98. It comes in extra small to large, but I think they were a little too ambitious in offering four sizes when there should only be one: lame.

thrifty thursday. rose hair accessories. May 28, 2009

Hey, there, dear readers! It’s time for another Thrifty Thursday! This week, I found five different hair accessories that will appeal to your floral (and frugal) sides. Just like every Thursday, each product listed will be under $20, so here we go!

floral bobby pin set.

I LOVE these bobby pins! They are simply adorable, and while other sites are selling them for up to twenty dollars, Forever21 is only selling them for $3.80! And you get six! They also come in four different color choices! CAN YOU TELL I AM EXCITED?! Ahem. Anyway, get them here, and choose from the combinations of hot pink and cream, red and black, white and turquoise (pictured because it’s my favorite), and hot pink and blue. This set is definitely the best deal of the bunch.

black and red check lace flower clip.

This little number is for the more wild readers out there, who decide that they need a little pattern (checkers, in this case) on their rose accessory. Get it here at Hot Topic, for $8, you wild things.

Homecoming Court Clip

homecoming court clip.

A more traditional rose clip is available at ModCloth, here, for $14.99. I guess if you like your hair clips pricier (and hopefully well-made), then these last three roses should float your boat.

Vintage Inspired Crimson Felt Flower Hair Clip / Pin

vintage inspired crimson felt flower hair clip/pin.

Felt? Huh. It’s very interesting and kind of arts-and-crafts-y. Right? Well, if you want your rose to look like a Girl Scout at summer camp made it (which is not necessarily a bad thing), get it here, at Plasticland, for $15.

full bouquet clip.

The last one on this list is arguably the most exquisite. But what else would you expect from Anthropologie, really? A lot of their accessories are to die for. But don’t die; just get it here, for $18, and choose from grey, ivory, pink (featured above), and coral (which is an orange-ish color).

So, what are you waiting for? Who doesn’t look good with a flower behind their ear?

enchanted seeds bracelet. absolutely stunning. May 9, 2009

I am not really one for bracelets, unless they look special and unique, so it probably comes as no surprise that this bracelet is definitely both of those. I can imagine it with a white ruffled shirt or dress, but other than that, I’m not really sure what exactly I would pair with this magnificent bracelet.

feminine and ethereal.

Also, the price is pretty steep, so I’m not really sure if I should be imagining it with anything right now. Because I cannot afford it. If $298 is paltry change for you, feel free to get it here, at Anthropologie, where all my fledgling dreams are crushed.

sunday shopping spree. chandelier earrings. May 3, 2009

Okay, folks. Today is the day that I present more than one awesome fashionable thing to all you readers out there. I found six different pairs of chandelier earrings on six different sites for your viewing (and possibly, buying) pleasure. I think that chandelier earrings are really classic-looking and can brighten up any outfit. Without further ado, here they are, in ascending price order:

SILVER

filigree chandelier earring.

This pair is from Wet Seal, and you can buy them here for $6. They only come in silver but are a nice addition to any jewelry box.

evelyn chandelier earrings.

These gorgeous earrings are from Forever21, and you can buy them here for $8.80 and in two different colors: this black and a weird-looking yellow that might appeal to the bright and cheery populace of the world. Definitely not me.

Our next pairs hail from Urban Outfitters, and you can find them here. Since the style you receive depends on the color that you choose, I decided to show you both of the colors. The left one is silver and the right one is burnished gold. They are both $9.99 and on sale from $24. An item that is more than 50% off! I patted myself on the back for that one. No worries.

Mardi Gras Earrings

mardi gras earrings.

The fantastic earrings above are from Modcloth, here, and they only come in gold. Look at that magnificent craftmanship! Sadly, you have to pay extra for shit that good, and the price for them is $11.99.

ancient tree earrings.

I’ve never shopped at Anthropologie before. Namely because of their pricey nature. So it’s no surprise that these earrings I found there are $28. They are very pretty, though, and you can buy them here in gold or silver.

earrings

fringe chain and charm earrings.

I really like this last pair, too, but because I found them at Express, they are also very pricey. Coming in at $29.50, you can buy them here. Express is also having a sale right now: buy one and get one 50% off. Good luck finding something else!
