Shoe Obsession: The Ankle Strap Heel

I am absolutely loving the ankle strap heel lately. I love this style because it is the epitome of sleek, simple and versatile. Whether it be a classic black or a fun bright color these shoes are an absolute must! You can wear these shoes with your favorite LBD (little black dress) or pair them with your favorite trousers for a super chic look.

Glitz and Gold

So lately, I’ve been loving gold and rose gold accessories. I think they are the perfect addition to any outfit, especially when wearing neutrals (which is basically all I wear). I love pairing my rose gold michael kors watch with some super stacked bangles or triple cuff rings.

If you are interested in this trend but don’t know where to start then try adding a cool gold choker or a stack of rose gold cuffs to your all black or neutral ensemble. Another cool option is adding a gold hair cuff to your super sleek ponytail. This trend is super easy and do-able, it’s all about balancing and adding just the right of glitz and glam to chic-ify any outfit.

Latest Obsession! Prada Inspired Baroque Sunnies

I’m obsessed with the Prada Baroque sunglasses! However, unfortunately due to my lack of employment, i could not shell out the 300 dollars for them! Luckily, I was browsing on amazon and found a great pair of “Prada Inspired” sunnies! I read the reviews and was totally intrigued! With a 10 dollar pricetag and free shipping, who could beat that?

Let me know what you guys think? Would you ever buy something “inspired”? or would you rather shell out the big bucks for the real thing?
