Black and Brown? Get Out Of Town!

November 3, 2010 12:32 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Who says that black and brown don't go together?  Throw that out the window!  I looove black and brown together!  It is such a cool and modern combination.  Any shade of brown...tan, chocolate, and my favorite CAMEL!  I once saw Jessica Alba wearing a black dress with a camel colored belt and instantly fell in love with those colors together.  Add another muted color like army green and you have an awesome color pallette!

I think I'm in love...with this brown biker vest.  I am going to be wearing it a lot because it just goes with everything.  These black wedge heel boots are made by Tommy Hilfiger and are so incredibly comfortable.  I have been on the hunt for some wedge boots for a while, and finally found them at Marshall's for $35.  It is so worth it to shop at discount stores, you can really find some amazing deals.  I hardly ever shop at the mall anymore except to go to Forever 21 or H&M.  These shoes would normally sell for $100 at Macy's.  How can you beat that deal?  Jeez...

Something Old, Something New

October 19, 2010 1:42 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

How freakin' awesome is this skirt?!  I paid a visit to some local antique shops and found this vintage real leather beauty for $14.  I am sooo in love with it.  Actually, I am in love with this entire outfit.  It is a size 4, but is so tiny that it feels like it was made for me!  The shirt was purchased at Target for $7.  I don't think I've loved two pieces together this much EVER!

This look definitely has a vintage vibe to it.  The silhouette of the skirt.  The pearls.  The lace.  When wearing vintage items it is important to add modern items so you don't look like you stepped out of a 50's magazine.  The pearls are vintage-inspired, but the layers and layers of them make them a modern statement necklace.  The feather earrings and statement heels complete it!  I am defintely NOT a minimalist!

As If!

October 6, 2010 12:47 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

 

Something happened today after I put on my knee socks and heels.  I am now addicted to them!  I vaguely remember sometime in junior high when I attempted to wear white knee socks with black maryjanes...I think it was inspired by the movie "Clueless" aka Best Movie EVER!  You know your an 80's kid if you grew up wanting to dress like Alicia Silverstone in that movie!  What I would give for a revolving closet like she had!  But this look is in no way like my strange attempt to be cool as an adolecent.  Knee socks with heels are officially added to my repitoire!  They are kind of like wearing extremely well fitting knee high boots!

Now I have seen this trend with different colored socks and shoes, but for now I will take baby steps!  I love wearing tights with different colored shoes!  That used to be a no no, but now those rules don't apply!  Throw those old fashion rules out the window!  If you want to try this at home but are a little timid about it, start with black socks and black heels.  I paired opaque black tights under my socks as well.  I will probably be experimenting with other colors in the future!  Can't wait!  Hope you have fun trying this at home!  Let me know how it goes!

What's In A Name?

October 2, 2010 1:18 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Sometimes I go online and look at photos of celebrity outfits for inspiration.  The other day I was looking at Nicole Ritchie's style and couldn't get it out of my head when I got dressed in the morning.  Hence, the bohemian, casual, kind of hippie outfit I came up with.  I absolutely love her style!  It seems so effortless.  To come up with an outfit that looks like you're not trying too hard, when you ACTUALLY DID try hard, is a task in itself!

This shirt is made by Hang Ten, which is kind of random because I didn't even realize they still made clothes!  I'm kind of oblivious to the whole "beach scene".  I remember when I was in Junior High and this boy would make fun of me for not wearing "name brand" clothes like Hang Ten and Roxy.  LOL!  My mom bought me a Hang Ten shirt that I picked out at Ross, and I thought I was sooo cool!  I don't even think that I liked the shirt, I just wanted to be like the "cool kids"!  What is it about name brands?  Have you ever bought something just because of the label?  I'm so glad I don't care anymore!  Cute is cute no matter the price!

Sea Of Green

September 28, 2010 11:39 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Ok, this is starting to get out of control.  My obsession with army green continues and it is getting ridiculous!  It's everywhere I look in the stores and I cannot refrain from buying every item in this amazing color!  Somebody stop me before I drown in a sea of army green clothes!  Pretty soon I'm going to be dressed in a complete ensemble of army green and look like Oscar the Grouch!  Except with a smile of course!   I loooove these loose shorts.  They were on sale at Charlotte Russe for $12.

I don't normally like pairing two loose items together, but showing a little leg kind of makes it ok for some reason.  This shirt appears to be shapeless, but is actually perfectly nipped and tucked in the right places to create a little silhouette.

I have to say that I am completely smitten with clogs.  They are awesome!

This gold necklace I bought at Burlington Coat Factory for $7.  My favorite bangle bracelets and a cocktail ring from Forever 21 add a little more sparkle...as if it needed it.  I just realized that if I was wearing a floppy hat, rather than a fedora, I would kind of feel J Lo-esque.  LOL!  Maybe it's the shirt...

Not A Through Street

September 20, 2010 1:08 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

I apologize for being M.I.A. for the past couple of days.  We had a yard sale over the past weekend, and let me say that it was exhausting!  If felt amazing to clean out my closet and get rid of some things that I don't use.  I sold about 20 pairs of shoes.  Someone's trash is anothers treasure!  Now I have room for some new ones!  Ha.

I have been extremely excited to post these pictures because I think that the background is pretty cool.  The way the sun was setting behind the trees made the sky look wondrous!  My husband went with me on this photo shoot, and we took our two dogs (kids) with us.  Although, only one made it into the pictures.  Meet my little ball of fur...Gizmo.  He is just as bad as his name sounds!

I don't own very many expensive items...but these Christian Dior sunglasses are one of them!  Love them!  Anything expensive that I own was most likely a gift from either my parents or my husband.  It is a rare occasion that I spend over $100 dollars on one item.  It has to be pretty dang amazing!

I am loving all of the lace-up style shoes that are out right now.  These shoes I found on sale at JC Penny for $10.  Why they would mark down these amazing shoes to that low of a price, I have no idea!  But I am not going to complain about that!  Score!  One point for me!

Gizmo is having a little bit of the crazy eyes...but he IS smiling for the camera!  It's because he thinks he's famous now.  :)

Boots and Ruffles

September 15, 2010 9:08 pm · Posted by sassysweetheart

Feeling so happy in boots and a dress...oh yes!  I love these colors together.  Kind of a taupe-brown and mustard yellow, which is really in for fall.  And now, let boot season begin!  You will being seeing my collection of knee-high boots quite frequently in the next couple of months.  YAY for knee-high boots!  And while we're at it, YIPPEE for ruffles!

Grandpa Pants

September 3, 2010 12:53 am · Posted by sassysweetheart

These pants are extremely old man like!  It was a challenge to make them look cute, even though I really really like them.  In theory, they are extremely unflattering...pleated and tapered!  Sounds awful!  But paired with the right things, can look really chic and cool!

A tapered leg looks terrible on me, so I rolled them up to create a more flattering sillhouette.  If you are going to wear anything oversized (i.e. boyfriend jeans, blazer, t-shirt), make sure that everything else is well fitting.  Otherwise you might end up looking like a bag lady...or an Olsen twin haha.

This necklace pretty much rocks my world!  It jingles when I move; it's like Christmas came early!  I could not refrain from skipping down the sidewalk just to hear the jingle jangle.  I just could not control myself...I could not.

It's Not Easy Being Green

Here we go again...wearing yet another pair of cargo skinnies.  I am absolutely loving this trend!  It is cool, comfortable and chic rolled into one amazing pair of pants!  This trend opened up a whole new set options in the realm of my bottom half!  It becomes so mundane to wear jeans everytime casual attire is what I desire (haha that rhymes!  What a poet I am!).  So in opposition to the title of this post, it is easy WEARING my green cargos!
