Obsessed: Forever 21 Beaded Clutches

Fashion, Obsessions

I love a good patterned accessory.  It’s a great way to add a pop of excitement to an outfit without going overboard.  I found two great beaded clutches at Forever 21.  The first is the beaded geo clutch:

This clutch sells for about $23 and I absolutely love the pattern.  Aztec/tribal prints are very in right now.  The other clutch is the bugle beaded clutch:

It goes for about $24.  It’s a beautiful pattern and even has a cross-body chain so you don’t have to hold your bag all night!

Little Blue Dress in Reality

Fashion, Style

1. ASOS Ponti Shift Dress $73

2. Hype Hibiscus Studded Suede ‘Cindy’ Chain Clutch $68 at Bluefly.com

3. Forever 21 Snake Chain Feather Earrings $4

4. Aldo Cates Ring $8

5. Forever 21 Pyramid Stud Bracelet $4

6. Aldo Kovac $110

I love how the lines of the dress play off of the lines on the shoes (which by the way are pretty awesome.) The Hype bag gives an unexpected pop of color which adds another dimension to the outfit. It’s also reduced by more than 50% at Bluefly saving you $82 (more than the bag will even cost you!)

Little Blue Dress in Luxury

Fashion, Style

I loved Kourtney Kardashian‘s blue dress at the Teen Choice Awards. She wore a Blaque Label Sweetheart Chiffon Dress, and didn’t she look fab?

Here’s an example of how to wear the new LBD: the Little Blue Dress:

1. TIBI Draped Dress $297

2. Gucci 1973 Shoulder Bag $795

3. LANA Blake Bar Earrings $780

4. Pamela Love 7 Crystal Cuff $495

5. Fiona Paxton Dakotah Ring $160

6. Theyskens’ Theory Patent-Leather Wedges $465

Olivier Theyskens was asked to design a collection for Theory and these amazing wedges (6.) were born. I’m obsessed with all of them but the patent-leather and suede ombré’s have to be my favorite…I mean, look at these!
Speechless……..The ankle straps are even removable:
 In the words of my favorite stylist…I die.  (For those of you who don’t get this reference…please watch The Rachel Zoe Project.  The new season starts September 6th.  Do yourself a favor and tune in.)  It’s bananas.
Come back tomorrow for how to wear the little blue dress in reality!

Obsessed: Red Suede Platform Booties

Fashion, Obsessions

These Brian Atwoods sell for a mere $1,130 and will boost you 4.75 inches off the ground.

They’re utterly amazing to stare at, but once I saw the price tag and this heel:

I decided I would twist my ankle and die a poor girl if I ever wore them. I love these Dolce Vitas and they only cost $224. Another plus…when you wear them, you’ll be able to walk!

Jada and Willow Smith rocked their red suede booties at LAX. It’s half cute and half really weird that they’re wearing basically the same exact, very bold shoe.

I don’t know about you, but the only way I’d wear matching shoes with my mom is if they were Louboutins and she offered to buy me some. I understand the girl’s only 10, but imagine seeing that in real life on non-celebrities…tell me you wouldn’t stare and be like, “Okay, that’s a little weird.”
