Mini Sweater Haul

Hey, loves! Every fall, I buy new sweaters because living in New York during the winter season can be brutal. Aside from that, I just love sweaters. They’re just comfy and cozy so why not buy a few? This year I didn’t go as crazy as a usually do because I still kept a good amount of my sweaters from last year. Either way, I wanted to share with you what I got. I wanted to take some dope looking photos wearing these outside however the weather, time, and lighting weren’t on my side, So, I simply just took selfies of me wearing them *shrug*.

This one is probably my favorite of them all! I love the color and the fact that’s slouchy and cropped. You can get it a Boohoo here.

Chunky knits are a trend this fall season so I had to get a sweater like this! I just love anything deep red for the fall ♥. This sweater runs a smidge big, but I don’t mind it because it’s perfect for layering. Check it out here.

I had to have a long cardigan this. I’ve never owned one and it was about time. This cardigan is unfortunately sold out :(! But, I’m sure Forever 21 has more long cardigan options.

This is your everyday cardigan from Forever 21. The only reason I had to have it was because of the gorgeous terracotta color. Unfortunately, they don’t have the sweater in this color anymore but they definitely have other nice colors. Plus, it’s super affordable. I would’ve bought 2 more if there were more colors I had to have. Check it out here.

All About Handbags

Hey, my dears! Handbags are probably a woman’s most important accessory. Like where else are you gonna put all your stuff? In your pockets? I highly doubt it unless you’re going to the corner store. Handbags are essential! There are plenty of different types to choose from, but there are definitely a few must-haves. I’m going to share a few handbag staples as well as my favorite places to shop for bags.

Handbag Staples
  • Tote A tote is basically a large shoulder bag that fits a bunch of stuff in it. You can use it for weekend travel and for just the average day. An example is the burgundy bag in the photo.
  • Cross Body To me, the main purpose of a crossbody is to be convenient. They range from big and small. I usually use these when I’m going out drinking or clubbing because I’m not trying to worry about my bag all night. I know I always have it on me because strapped on to my body comfortably. An example of a crossbody is the small black bag. I usually like my crossbody bags to be small.
  • Structured This is your basic purse. You usually can’t fit it on your shoulder because of the straps length. You can rest it on the inside of your elbow, though. They’re similar to the navy striped one pictured. They’re also not as spacious as a tote.
  • Clutches/Wristlets I didn’t include photos of these, but they’re small and fit the basics like your wallet and makeup. I stick to these on formal occasions.

I’m not a luxury handbag type of person. I rarely every buy designer handbags because I like my handbags fairly simple. If I’m gonna drop a bunch of money on something, it definitely wouldn’t be a purse. My go-to places for handbags are…

Lulu’s

Aldo

ASOS

Banana Republic

Forever 21

All these stores offer affordable, good quality, and stylish handbags 🙂

Fall Fashion Must Haves

(via weheartit)

Hey babes! September is finally here which means fall is right around the corner. It may not feel like fall is coming because this NYC heat is ridiculous, but I’m hopeful that the weather will soon be changing! My favorite thing about the fall season, besides the makeup of course, is the fashion. I’m all about layers, dark colors, boots, hats, etc. I am all here for it. Not to mention, I was born in the fall and I love everything pumpkin spice! I just don’t get why some people don’t like pumpkin spice, like what???? But I digress, let me share with you some fall must haves for your closet!

(via fall-feels.tumblr.com)

Plaid – I don’t know about you but for me plaid is everything in the fall. I love plaid shirts, especially plaid OVERSIZED shirts. It gives me that grungy, laid back feel that I love. You can dress it down and pair it up with a pair of converse or mocassins, but you can dress it up with a pair of heeled booties.

(via weheartit)

 Knits – Every one wear knits during the fall, unless you live somewhere where its hot all day, every day. I personally stick to dark colored or neutral colored sweaters. Colors like oxblood, dark grey, dark green, taupe, burnt orange, and of course, black. Check out the Fall 2015 Pantone Fashion Color Report to see what colors are in.

Leather Jackets – A leather jacket ties my whole look together in the fall season. I’m more of a black leather jacket girl but you can explore different colors. If you’re not fond of leather, check out some bomber jackets. Bomber jackets are just as dope and come in different materials. If you’re a real boss, buy both like me ;)! Tip: Boohoo & Forever 21 have great affordable options.

(via weheartit)

Boots, Boots, and Boots – Fall isn’t fall without boots. Whether it’s heeled, no heel, booties, knee high boots, thigh high boots, lace up boots, combat boots, etc – they are a must have! Tip: JustFab, Lola Shoetique, and Charlotte Russe are my personal faves for boot shopping.

A few more basic essentials that you should have are comfy sneakers, accessories (scarves, hats, beanies), leggings, and camis/tank tops (for layering). Lauren Alexandra and Brandy Melville have fun graphic beanies, hats, and tees. Forever 21 is my go-to for basic tops and leggings.

Let’s Talk: SHOES!

(via tumblr)

 Hey beauties. I haven’t done a fashion specific post in a while so I figure it’s about that time. I wanted to talk shoes because shoes are a big deal. I’ll admit that I’ve gotten really lazy with my shoe choices because I haven’t been out for fun in a while. I’m usually at work and it’s best to wear sneakers or boots there. My internship gives me room to be creative with my footwear but I rarely do because once again, I’ve gotten caught up with the whole “sneakers everyday” mentality but those days are over. No more wearing the average flats or sandals. It’s about time I got my juice back and I wanted to share with you guys my favorite places to indulge in shoes!

Shoemint – The price range is on the more expensive size and you do need to create an account (for free). There used to be a monthly membership fee but that’s gone!  I really enjoy their selection of shoes. I found my most comfortable pair of heels there and luckily they were on sale at the time. Once you make an account, they get to know your style and create a showroom for you where they suggest the best shoes for your style. I wouldn’t say they’re my absolute #1 spot but if you’re a member, you can get so many deals.

JustFab – Who doesn’t know about JustFab?  Who doesn’t want 2 pairs of shoes for $39.95? This site also provides you with a style profile. However, you do need to pay monthly for membership if you’re consistently getting shoes. But, they also give you the option to skip the month and you won’t be charged if you’re not buying anything. It’s pretty much the same as ShoeMint just a bit cheaper when it comes to a pair of shoes and there’s a monthly fee.

Lola Shoetique – Let me tell you that I AM OBSESSED with Lola Shoetique. I actually discovered it by Instagram stalking beauty vloggers and people like Amrezy, Amanda Ensing, Carli Bybel, etc. I finally checked it out and I love them. They have a wide price range from $20-100, so you’re bound to find a pair you really like. No membership needed! All you need to do is shop and enjoy your new pair(s) of shoes.

Charlotte Russe – The best place for when you’re on a budget and need to be about that BOGO life. During my college life, almost all my shoes were from Charlotte Russe. I needed to look good on a budget and this was the place for me! They offer some cute styles and there’s literally always some type of deal on shoes there.

Some other great places for shoes are Forever 21 and H&M. They’re pretty affordable and if you like to hunt down a nice, affordable, comfortable pair – I’d definitely check those out!

Best Places To Shop For Accessories

(via pinterest)

Hey all! I know I’ve been flooding Fashenty with red carpet fashion posts. It’s been quite a while I’ve done a general fashion post so it’s time to stop neglecting you fashionistas out there!

When I think accessories I think purses, clutches, hats, belts, sunglasses and jewelry. I don’t think shoes because I think shoes deserve their own category. Maybe that will be my next fashion post – who knows? So, I’m going to share with you my ultimate favorite places to get my accessories!

Bauble Bar

Princess P. Jewelry

Irie Mi

Forever 21

Charlotte Russe

If you’re on a low budget, then Forever 21, Charlotte Russe, Brandy Melville, Necessary Clothing, Etsy, and Tilly’s are your go-to’s. Now, if you’re on a budget and willing to splurge a bit Lulu’s, Irie Mi, and TopShop can be your friends. They have a range of inexpensive to splurge. It all depends on your style. Bauble Bar, Princess P. Jewelry, and Daily Look have range but you’ll find that a good amount of things are about $50 and above – especially Bauble Bar and Urban Outfitters.

Hope this helped!

Season Trend: Little White Dresses

Hello all! It’s time for a fashion post. It’s been a little while since I’ve done one of these. I’ve been doing the usual best & worst dressed but it’s time to do something different! So here we go …

Now I’m sure most of you have heard of LBD aka “Little Black Dress”. Every woman should have one if not a few LBDs in their closet. It’s classic! However, the summer trend right now is the LWD aka “Little White Dress”. LWDs have been seen virtually everywhere! They’ve been on the red carpet and runway, as well was magazines, television, and blogs.

The great thing about LWDs and LBDs is that you can accessorize them endlessly! Plus, they are extremely easy to come across. The question is… what kind of LWD is right for you? Well, that all depends on personal preference! I have a couple of LWDs stashed in my closet. Most of them are lace and one or two are bodycon. But if you like all styles of LWDs, then hey go all out! Like I said you can dress it up or dress it down however you like. Here are some examples of casual LWDS …

  1. Airy Important Person Ivory Lace Dress, $46 – lulus.com
  2. Sunny Daze Crochet Dress, $17.80 – forever21.com
  3. Billabong Sand Kisses Embroidered White Maxi Dress, $69.50 – lulus.com

 

If you’re looking for some more dressier options, here are some examples…

  1. Make Way for Wonderful Ivory Lace Maxi Dress, $77 – lulus.com
  2. Space Lace Dress, $62 – tobi.com
  3. Let’s Run Away Ivory Dress, $44 – lulus.com

So you can clearly see that LWDs can be worn for pretty much anything. Most LWDs that I’ve seen have lace and are maxi or skater style. However, there are plenty of other options. If you don’t know where to start, go on polyvore! You’re guaranteed to find something. Not a fan of online shopping? Forever 21 has TONS of LWDs. Get to shopping girl!

You can break from the mold. If you love it, wear it! Keep in mind, you wanna look classy not trashy. You want to look beautiful but not overdone … you’re not going to the Grammy’s.
