Pixie Jewelry

I bought some new jewelry yesterday…from Forever 21.  I thought I’d share what I got. 

I love anything remotely related to London.  So I thought this necklace was fitting:

I love necklaces of this shape…the fact that it said GYPSY was cute too
 
 
This necklace was just cute, and it says LOVE
 
 
When you are Pixie,  earrings are a must.  They can be big or small, but they are a must!  So these met the bill b/c they have tribal print.

H & M Opens Today in Texas!

 

Today is the day!   If you are near Dallas/Fort Worth, H&M makes its debut today at 12 noon in North Park Center.  It is the first of 3 stores set to open in DFW this year.  Town East Mall and Stonebriar Centre will both get a store before 2012!   I wish I could go today, but I will be there before the weekend is over!!

Watch The Throne: #WTT

 

 

It’s finally here.   I preordered my copy on July 3, when it was first available, not even knowing when it would actually be released.  Not only that, but not even having any idea what the tracklisting or sound would be like.  But guess what as a true fan, it didn’t matter anyway!  If Jay puts out music, I’m buying, always have (since 1994-yes I bought the Hawaiian Sophie cassingle–if you don’t know what that is, cassingle, your too young).   So imagine my surprise when I read the reviews from his personal listening party held in a hotel in NYC–http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/jay-z-previews-watch-the-throne-in-new-york-20110708, I couldn’t believe it, it was almost here. 

Now you have to understand also that as a huge fan, that Jay has not put out an album(really any music) since 2009’s Blueprint III, so this was huge.  Not to mention that Kanye’s last album was a classic.  So when the album was available for download on Monday, August 8(midnite), I hit download.  And honestly the CD has not stopped playing in my house since.  I went out and purchased the “golden ticket” as I like to call the Deluxe CD  at Best Buy on Friday the 12th, because I still love real CDs.  And because I already purchased my concert tickets for the WTT tour, I have 2 more free downloads!

The album is FIYAH!  Serioulsy, not just saying that because I’m a super fan, even Jay has had CDs that would be great for others, but just did not measure up for him, this CD is not one of those.  It will sit right alongside, Reasonable Doubt, The Blueprint, The Black Album, and American Gangster, as some of his finest work, EVER.  If you don’t have it, cop it.

2.  Chunky Sweaters over Summer Dresses

One way to maximize your wardrobe is to buy pieces that transition well into the next season.  Right now, you can go out and find all kinds of summer dresses for cheap, they want to get rid of them so they can stock for Fall and Winter.  

A big trend for Fall/Winter is to wear your short flowery summer dress, under a chunky sweater.  As the weather turns colder, you can definitely add tights to your look and wear this all they way to spring!

Fall Fashion 2011 Trendwatch: #3

I’ve been gone, for a week, had to take a break!  But now on to the top 3!!  

#3

Mustard colored clothing

This color of the moment is a mix between, yellow, orange, brown, and red(in my opinion).  I have seen a lot of this color in Forever 21 and Gap.  Basically in Forever 21 I am seeing it mixed in w/tribal prints for example.  I love anything yellow, any shade!  So I am all over this color!

Gap Tie Neck Blouse 59.99

Forever 21 Tribal Print Pullover $17.80

 
Forever 21 Classic Trench Coat $32.80
 
Charlotte Russe  Shimmer, Solid, Braided Belt Set $10.50
 
 
 
Again keep your eyes open for this color.  Its another old color, that you may find in thrift shopping!!!  Good luck.

4. Leather

Leather is a very hot trend for fall 2011.  Its in the forms of jackets, skirts, dresses, pants, etc.  And not only can the item be fully made of leather(real and man-made, but even clothing with patches here and there are sprouting up everywhere.  I’m loving this look, as I’ve always been a fan of leather!

Leatherette and Knit Skirt-Forever 21 $15.80

5.  Plaid

Plaid has always been one of my favorite prints, as long as I can remember. I have elementary school pictures with cute plaid shirts and dresses.  This fall will mark the return of plaid as a trend.  There are all types of colors and sizes of plaid available, although Tartan plaid was a staple at Fall Fashion Week this spring.  Below you will find some inexpensive plaid fashion finds, so jump on in.  Also, don’t forget to check out your thrifting spots, and definitely don’t forget to check out the men’s sections!
