Hey dolls!  Bringing you a sweet deal today!  I'm a big fan of thrifting and consignment shops.  It's so true that one man's trash is another man's treasure.  I could spend hours at those shops just looking through all the "fun stuff" that's what I like to call it.  Now ShopMieux makes it easy for you to shop from home, for pre-loved women's clothing & accessories at up to 90% off retail value.  I got this ArynK blazer for about $30 and it retails for over $150!  They have brands like Michael Kors, Alice & Olivia, DVF, Marc Jacobs and that's just a few of the fabulous brands they sell. 
 
Now for the sweet deal!  You can get 15% off your order with special code "SSBM" which by the way never expires, so get to shopping sweets!

RocksBox




It's almost Friday!  Yay! 
 
Ok, who doesn't love mystery mail?  Well the fun kind anyway.... there are so many companies that have monthly subscription boxes filled with surprise items ranging from beauty to fashion, travel and even for your pets!  The concept never gets old if you're receiving items you love.  

I was recently invited to try RocksBox - A jewelry subscription, with a similar concept to Bag, Borrow, or Steal.   First you complete a style profile in which their stylist pick 3 pieces they think you'll love.  They offer 30+ brands like Gorjana, House of Harlow, and CC Skye.  You can keep the jewelry as long as you'd like until you return them for 3 new pieces.  The subscription costs $19/month and you can swap as often as you like within that time period.  Best part is if you fall in love with a particular piece you can buy it for a discounted price.
 
 
My first box included this gorgeous necklace from Urban Gem.  I love it so much, I don't want to send it back!  I styled it with my favorite oversized sweater from H&M.

 Oversized sweater, and oversized gems can only mean, I had to have oversized hair too.  Lol!  Hope you like!
 
Have a great day loves!

VS Sports Bra



 
 
 
Hi there sweets!  I was too excited when I was sent the new Victoria Secret Sports Bra.  I don't workout as often as I should.  When I do workout, I'm always in a tank and shorts since I workout at home.  After working out in this bra, I never want to wear a tank again!  This bra was so comfortable and supportive.  It almost made me want to workout longer!  It has a crossback, breathable padding, & Body-Wick to keep you cool & dry.  The fashionable side of me loves that they come in so many different prints and colors.  I truly recommend this bra if your a runner or if your bustier up top.  The only con that I would have, is that it's a little pricey with most raging between $40-$60.  In the end, would I buy this sports bra?  Yes!  I really enjoyed working out in it, and I thought the support was great!

Sweater Weather


 
 


 
 
 
Top: {c/o} Piperlime Embellished French Terry Top / Pants: H&M / Sandals: Nine West / Sunnies: Kohl's / Bracelet: {c/o} Kendra Scott Ivy Bracelet in Silver / Earrings & Clutch: Mandee
 
 
Hey there sweets!  So glad the weekend is almost here, felt like this week dragged!
 
Fall fashion is here and one of my favorite pieces to wear are SWEATERS!  Whether its a cardigan, turtleneck, heavy knit, or even a sweatshirt.  Sweaters are perfect for fall, keeping you warm and snugly but still stylish.  How stylish and fabulous is this sweater from Piperlime....I just LOVE the embellished collar.  Don't be afraid of the short sleeves, even in cooler temps you can always layer it.  I say that a lot but layering is best for fall.  With the temps always up and down it's the best way to keep up with Mother Nature when she's not sure if it's fall or summer...lol!   
 
Hope you all have a wonderful day!

FALL-ish



 
 
 
 
 
Dress: {c/o} #eShakti Drop waist A-line chambray dress / Necklace: New York & Company / Cuff: Lola Blue The Closet / Handbag: Simply Vera Wang / Sandals: N/A
 
 

  
Happy Monday!  What a beautiful weekend it was!  Hope you all enjoyed it.  This weekend felt like summer but since it's fall, I decided to wear fall colored accessories.  For me that's an easy way to embrace the fall even though the temps are summer like.  eShakti sent me this lovely dress and I LOVE it!  I have an obsession with anything chambray.  I own so many pieces.  The best part about this dress is that it was tailored to my measurements.  They offer both style and fit customization for women size 0 through 36.  That is the heart of their business.  I've never had a dress made for me and I must say it fit like a glove!  If you have sizing issues or your just looking to get that perfect fit, I would definitely check them out.  Hope you all have a great day!

Happy first day of FALL!  I Can't believe summer is officially over.  My heart hurts a little.  I'll miss you summer!  My weekend was uneventful but I did go to dinner with the hubby.  Even though it's Fall the weekend was rather warm so the sheer lace sleeves on this peplum blouse from OASAP was perfect.  I added red pumps for that pop of color.  I wanted to wear a red lippy, but I thought it would have been to matchy matchy, So I went more nude.  What do you think?  Should I have done a red lip?  Well folks, I hope your Monday is short and sweet!

Dinner with GLAM


 
Hello dolls!
In today's post, I'm trying to hold on to summer in this gorgeous blue midi dress.  Last Monday I attended The GLAM NYFW Dinner at the gorgeous Beautique in NYC.  The restaurant was beautiful and the food and drinks were delicious!  It was a lovely evening with great company.  As soon as I saw this dress at Macy's, I knew I had to get it.  The length and fit were fab.  I also knew that I would be able to transition it easily for fall with boots and a blazer.  If you know me personally you know that I'm always late for everything.  That being said, I didn't have time to pose for pictures so the hubby just snapped a few in the lobby of our apartment before I left. 
(Sorry in advance for the bad lighting.)

 
 
So looks like you only get 1 of me in the lobby.  After looking through all the pictures this was the best one.  Here are some fun pics from that night.....
