Style Whiplash… Pumps with Class and Sass

Screen Shot 2015-02-11 at 8.07.14 PM

Browsing Target I stumbled on a pair of pumps that made me do a double take! Now, a great pair of pumps can be one of the best purchases you make. I have been looking for a pair of pumps that have a similar type of “vibe” to the gorgeous Valentino Pumps. I mean these pumps have it ALL: class.. and sass!

I mean yes, they are gorgeous, but with a teachers salary this is not going to happen (unless I win the lottery…which I would need to play first). Well, lucky for me I found a more pocket friendly version by “Sam and Libby” for Target.

I would say that at $34.99 that these give the same “class and sass” effect that the Valentino Pumps do. They come in 3 different color options “Black”, “White” and “Fawn”(pictured, and what I purchased). I really think these shoes are bound to be my go to for this spring. I cannot wait to pair them with a pair of ripped jeans or a cute pencil skirt. So, go get your Class and Sass on!

Enjoy, xoxo

Style Whiplash… Over the Knee Boots

I LOOOOOOOVE BOOTS! Okay, glad to have that out in the open! Booties are my number one go to, I think they are a match made in heaven with some skinny jeans. Needless to say, I was ready to mix up my boot collection. I have been eyeing the over the knee boot look for awhile.  I was doing a little “boot research” and this specific pair caught my eye. Now, I have pretty large calves, and I vary in size of boots- figured I would go try them on. So waking through “HEAVEN ON EARTH- DILLARDS SHOE DEPT” I see “40% off” on the EXACT boots I wanted! Can anyone say DESTINY? My internal voice tells me “play it cool” as if the sale will disappear if I show my joy.  So, I slipped on an 8, and 8 1/2. Went with the 8 1/2 (I almost always go up 1/2 size on boots).

I cannot wait to rock these puppies! Now, I did check online and they are only 40% off in the store. I will be sharing some ways to wear these beauties!

Style Whiplash… Boho Flair

I am loving the boho flair, and good news it’s here for FALL! Something about the ease of the boho look feels just so right. Whether you choose to sport some quarts, a southwestern sweater, fringe, or a killer felt hat jump on the band wagon- you’ll be happy you did!

Style Whiplash… One Awesome Palette

Truth… I love make-up, and I love a great deal. Who’s with me? Then this palette is going to knock your socks off.

Eye shadow- CHECK

Bronzer- CHECK

Blush- CHECK

Highlighter- CHECK

I mean what is NOT to love? At a price tag under $40 this is a no brainer. The colors are fantastic for that Summer/Fall transition. I cannot believe that a product like this exists. The eye shadows have great pigment, the bronzer has a great sun-kissed look, the blush is sweet and understated, and the highlighter gives you a fresh sparkle. I also love that TARTE is free of  Parabens and Phthalates. RUN-don’t walk to grab one of these limited-edition palettes before they are gone!

Details:

A limited-edition, colored clay eye and cheek palette for day to night looks.

What it does:
Inspired by the rain forest’s deep orchid hues at dusk, Tarte’s limited-edition eye and cheek palette has everything you need to create sultry and sophisticated day to night looks. Infused with colored clay, which naturally color-corrects as it supports oil control, this makeup provides longer wear and truer color payoff. This modern ingredient from the mountainous regions of Brazil brightens, evens, and soothes skin, while the velvety formula glides on and delivers rich color—without settling into fine lines and wrinkles.

This set contains:
– 0.14 oz Highlighter in Champagne
– 0.14 oz Bronzer in Park Avenue Princess™
– 0.21 oz Blush in Unleashed (nude rose)
– 6 x 0.035 oz eyeshadows in Bare to Explore (pink beige), Make a Mauve (plum mauve), Plum Away with Me (dark plum), Up to No Gold (gold), Tan-gled Up in You (tan), Don’t Turn A-Brown (dark brown)
– Step-by-Step Glamour Guide

A HUGE shout-out to my girl Karrisa for introducing me to TARTE, and to my girl Molly for buying this palette, and making me NEED it!! Love you ladies! Thanks for the style whiplash!

Style Whiplash…Liner that ROCKS!

When it comes to make-up I have tried it all- NEVER did I think I would find my holy grail eyeliner at WALGREEN’S! I had been searching for a decent retractable eyeliner, and I couldn’t fine one I liked. While stopping at Walgreen’s the Jordana display caught my eye- and so did the price. I figured at a little over $2.00, what did I have to lose? I have not looked back! Not only does it go on smooth, but it has a rich dark color, lasts forever, and I NEVER have to sharpen it!

Last pick-up (and yes I buy like 3 at a time- hoard much?) I decided if I loved the eyeliner that much I should try the lip-liner. I must say I am not disappointed. I picked “Rock ‘n Rose”and it is a nice mauve/pink (close to my natural lip color just enhanced). Also, if you click the links you’ll find these babies are  ON SALE!

I hope you love it as much as I do!

Enjoy! xo
