It is no secret that I am a shoe hoarder, I can't help it I am obsessed! Shoes are just something that can make or break an outfit! When I was younger I never understood women's obsession with shoes, I usually just wore sneakers most of the time. Believe it or not I used to be a huge tomboy. There was this one time when I was about 12 years old at my cousins engagement party I was wearing flat sandals and the strap suddenly broke, I had to find something else to wear, so I snuck into my cousins room and decided to borrow her heels to wear for the rest of the evening (keep in mind that at that time I had never wore heels before) as I was walking back to greet the guests I suddenly slipped and fell flat on my face. In front of the guests. It was embarrassing to say the least. After that I promised myself to never wear heels again. Look what that turned into! I'm always wearing heels now and I can't stop. I still wear flats from time to time. But heels are my true love.

Dress-Vintage, Purse-Vintage, "Love" Belt-Forever 21, Petticoat (worn underneath dress)-Ebay, Heels-Jcpenny, Jewelry-Charlotte Russe
I just love the shape of this dress, it's very flowy and girly and to make it even more fun I added a petticoat underneath it! I have been searching for a petticoat for the longest time and finally found one on Ebay for a decent price. If you don't know what a petticoat is, it's a big skirt you put underneath your A-line dresses or skirts to make them look more full. But anyway I hope you enjoyed and have a fantastic day/night!

Blazer-Vintage, White Tank-Forever21, Ombre jeans-c/o Silver Jeans, Heels-Charlotte Russe
I love this floral blue blazer, I thrifted it a couple of months ago and it actually came as a suit so I have the matching skirt. But it looked a bit too outdated wearing them together, and I mainly bought it because I loved the blazer so much! I paired with some nice pink ombre pants from Silver Jeans to make it more casual and cool! I love the way this outfit turned out! I hope you enjoyed and are having a great week so far!

When it comes to my jewelry, I'm an organization freak. I like to have them displayed nicely in my room where I can see them when I'm picking out an outfit. When I was younger and started getting more into fashion, I started collecting a lot of jewelry, but I had no idea where to store them or how to organize them. I just threw them in my drawer and they would all get tangled together. It would take me hours to untangle every single one of them. But now, I have finally come up with a solution to keep them organized and untangled.
BRACELETS + RINGS
I purchased this bracelet holder from a little store called "Icing" I was so excited when I spotted it on sale for only $4.00 I thought it was so nice and perfect for my bracelets. After I brought it home, I realized that I can also store my rings in it! it helped organize my jewelry in a cute way where I can see what I need without having to dig through. I definitely recommend getting a bracelet holder if your frustrated on how to store your bracelets. I know Amazon and Ebay sell some nice ones. As for rings, you can just get a little nice bowl to put them in. It's easy and nice, plus rings don't get tangled!
Necklaces are the ones that frustrated me the most when I was still trying to figure out a way to organize them. I heard that you could just put pins in the wall and hang them, but I didn't think that was nice and I didn't want to ruin my walls. So I found this cute necklace hanger the same time when I found my bracelet holder above. As you can see, the flowers on them match but they were sold separately, so I also got this from "Icing" for $4.00! what a steal! now my necklaces are never tangled and it's so easy for me to see them when I'm styling an outfit. Again I know Amazon have some nice necklace hangers if your looking for any!
Last but not least are earrings. Now earrings were never hard for me to store, but I still wanted to display them in a cute way. I got this dress form jewelry organizer as a birthday gift from a friend years ago and I have loved it ever since. But it was too small to organize my necklaces so I put my dangly earrings on it instead. I know Marshall's and Ross sell some really cute ones for an incredibly good price. So if you have any of those stores in your area, definitely check them out! As for studded earrings, I just put them in a small jewelry box where they are safe and sound.
I hope you enjoyed this post and took some ideas on how to store your jewelry! It took me a long time to figure it out myself so I hope this helped you! Have a great day/night and always remember to stay positive!

Dress-Prabal Gurung for Target (get it here), Heels-Prabal Gurung for Target, Watch-Skagen, Purse-Vintage
I have been pretty obsessed with these lace up heels lately, they go with almost everything in my closet and I love the way they look on my feet, plus they are comfortable which is the main reason why I love them! as for the dress, it caught my eye instantly while I was shopping last week, I don't own any neon colors in my wardrobe so I thought it would be a fun piece to wear! I also love how flirty it is! definitely a cute piece! I hope you enjoyed and have a fantastic day/night!

Hello Everyone! Today I decided to start a new series called "How to Style" where I basically collect some of my favorite outfits that have a common piece of clothing and show you how I personally would style them! I hope you find this helpful and inspiring! Enjoy!
Red is a color that is very classic and sexy. I recommend adding neutral colors to tone it down since it's such a bright color. In this outfit above, I decided to add a striped black and white top then edge it up with a studded vest to give it a more rocker look.
For this outfit, I also added a black and white top. I love the how the sleeves are black and the rest of the top is white. It makes the whole outfit more unique. I decided to go matchy-matchy and add black and white shoes! The shoes makes the look more classy in my opinion because they are so sophisticated.
This last look is probably one of my favorite's. I think the colors in the scarf compliments the outfit perfectly and adds a lot of interest to the whole look. Definitely a go-to look of mine!
What's your favorite outfit? Let me know! I hope you enjoyed and have a fantastic day/night!
