I took these photos around the same time I shared a similar version of this look. I just love this skirt and jacket (both from thredUP), and they have been getting a ton of wear in a variety of ways (see jacket here). Some version of black and white seems to be on constant rotation in my wardrobe lately. Hope you all have a great weekend!
I was so excited to be contacted by Versona through Oklahoma Women Bloggers (shout-out to ShaRhonda from The 4-Crow's for the connection) to attend their store opening in Tulsa Hills and share it with you. It was my first real blogging event, and I felt like such a big girl. I got to meet my friend and beauty blogger Mia of Make Me Up Mia there, which made the whole experience even more fun. Versona is a clothing and accessory superstore. It's similar to Charming Chalie if you are familiar with it. It was my first time in Versona although it's the second location to open in Tulsa. I loved it! The store is laid out very well. It's all color coordinated, which makes everything very easy to navigate. The employees were so nice. I mean like really nice. If you have one in your area or live in the Tulsa area, I highly recommend checking it out. I found several outfits I wanted and could have walked away with a whole new collection of jewelry. They were kind enough to let me pick out some things to give to you, so make sure you enter below! I selected a tassel necklace, a pair of earring jackets (a personal obsession right now), and a beautiful set of studs. Proof you can get a lot for $25 at Versona. Mia has a giveaway going today too, so make sure you head over to her blog to check out what she found and enter there too.
I loved this Choies sweater the second I saw it on Kacie of Kacie's Closet. Lucky for me, they sent me one too, and Oklahoma's winter has decided to continue through March giving me plenty of opportunities to wear it. I love the red and black stripes. I wore it not too long ago for girl's night and then more recently for a fun blogging meeting up I was invited to with Mia of Make Me Up Mia. We got to attend a Versona store opening here in Tulsa. More to come tomorrow, so stay tuned!
It's been snowing for what feels like ages here. I don't know how you people who live in climates where this is a regular thing do it. Bless you. It's literally winter white around here. My footwear has really been seriously interrupted. This is what I had planned to wear on Saturday night for dinner with friends. As soon as I stepped out to take these photos, I realized how dumb that was. Heels were swapped for boots which meant my cute new white boyfriend jeans had to be swapped too. Talk about a downer. What's not a downer is the fact that I finally found a pair of white jeans I love. And on sale for only $25. Hallelujah.
Today is my second look with Boohoo's Throwback Thursday campaign (see the first look here). This time I picked Twiggy as my style icon. I am so fascinated by her short hair and eye makeup. I love that fashion allows us to express ourselves so uniquely. She wore the best mod dresses. I picked an updated plaid shift dress in homage to her. I spared you all from wearing colored tights like her, but she sure pulled them off. These are some of my favorite booties. I wear them all the time. Unfortunately they are no longer available, but I have found a similar pair here.
I was excited to be contacted by Boohoo and asked to participate in their Throwback Thursday campaign. This included picking a style icon from the past who inspired me and then creating a look. It was fun to decide on a person, pick the clothing, and then style my outfit as a nod to her. Of course I chose Audrey Hepburn. I love her classic style. I mean, who doesn't? Now if only I actually looked like her... I picked a fun pair of grid print trousers and a contrast collar blouse in effort to mimic Audrey's tailored menswear looks. It's been pretty cold around here, so I styled my pants for church and then with the short sleeve blouse at home. I'm curious, who would you have picked as a style icon?
Baby blue is supposed to be a big trend this spring. I can't deny that I am pretty excited about adding this jeweled midi to my closet. All in all, it seems like the perfect piece. I can wear it to work, church, or a wedding. It will also be perfect in the summer with white heels and a blouse. I had never ordered from Sheinside before and was a little nervous about the sizing, but it fits well (I ordered a medium). Plus, it is such a great price. It is a scuba type stretchy material. I typically wear a size 4 at most stores. This could fit other sizes because it does stretch and could sit a little higher. I paired it with my black turtleneck (similar at a great price) which I get a ton or wear out of and highly recommend having one in your closet. I'm also loving the dainty gold jewelry from Honeybee Boutique. It's fun to have some pieces that make a statement without actually being statement pieces themselves.
