Trend Report ||Faux Fur Jackets

TREND REPORT2

Hi Loves,

“An accessory is merely a piece of iconography used to express individual identity.” This famous quote from the Devil wears Prada, has been instilled in my body, not just because I’ve seen this film numerous times, but because this quote speaks truth about fashion. So how can I relate this quote to my latest trend report? Well only by relating it to another equally iconic piece of fashion that being the fur jacket (faux of course). This film had so many major fashion moments, but Miranda Priestly tossing her fur coat on the desk of, poor Andy had to be my favorite.

Let’s be real! The feeling you get when you’re wearing a faux- fur jacket, is like no other feeling by comparison. Yeah, you have your denim, and leather jackets; but dawning this statement; textured jacket, adds a simplicity and coziness to any outfit. The hype over these faux fur jackets are not misplaced, being able to come in a variety of colors, textures, and patterns have made this staple piece fun to wear all while being super fashionable. Here are a few picks that I’ve chosen to get you on board of the Faux- Fur trend.

Dresslily Haul //

Hi Loves,

The year is coming to an end, and soon it will be bye-bye comfy sweaters and hello spring wardrobe, but I still have a few months before I hang up my coat and fur boots. I recently had the pleasure of trying a few pieces from Dresslily, whom I’ve worked with before. If you’re new to wholesale shopping; Dresslily is a wholesale site that sales the trendiest clothing of the season ranging from hats, to all sorts of accessories. Now let’s see what I got!!!!!

I brought 4 items, because fashion on Dresslily is inexpensive, but the dollas add up. First item I got was a Asymmetrical stripped shirt, when I first got the shirt, I thought it was badly stitched, and I paid for what I got, but after looking at the product over & over,I seen that it was supposed to look like that. The shirt is nice, the material isn’t bad, very soft and drapes great. The next few items were accessories, I brought a pair of wooden glasses that was only $10. In the cold season, a girl can never have too any beanies!! I brought this embellished beanie for $9, now I know it’s a little steep in pricing, but this hat was socute, and I even got creative, and added some pins to add a lil grunge-esque flavor to it. Lastly, I got 2 layered necklaces b/ silver. They both were about $4, if you grew up in the 90’s these necklaces are a must for your jewelry box.

That’s all for today, I know it was a little short, but there are more post to come! Be sure to like this post + let me know in the comments if you’ve shopped dresslily before, If so, what’s your favorite item you’ve purchased?

Under $20 Clothing & Accesories! Dresslily try on Haul!!

Hi Lovelies,

I’m back with another collaboration post to add to the collection! For the past month I have been in a recent collaboration with Dresslily, an online clothing & accessories e- commerce platform that sales affordable fashion, beauty, and other items. I have a few items that I have selected for the summertime especially, and all items are under $20, I know! So, grab your coffee & relax, because I’ll be showing you the pieces that I picked out. I will leave the links to the products in case you get an urge to make a purchase! I got you!

The first item is this Green bomber jacket that I brought for $19. This has to be one of the cutest jackets that I purchased off the site, it’s a lightweight material that is great for the summer weather, and the material is in no way stretchy; so I really encourage you to buy a size up. I love this jacket it is military styled and this green just looks great with so many color combinations.

The next few items that I have were all accessories, nothing too special, but what’s an outfit without shiny accessories!


I picked out this leather belt for $5. I really like this belt, I really have been into the whole retro mom jeans phase, and the outfit isn’t giving the feels I need until I have a belt & tucked in blouse.

Alloy Buckle Leather belt | $5

I also purchased these cute fishnet ankle socks for $4. I am slowly, but surely building my stocking collection, and I’m not talking bout Christmas! These fishnets looks so cute with highwaisted jeans; skirts, and other summer bottoms.

Now to the drip of the outfit! I purchased a few jewelry pieces. Like really, who doesn’t love jewelry? I brought 2 sets of layered necklaces; one set is a silver multi cross necklace that cost $3 and the other was a gold multi necklace w/ face art design for $3. I love these necklaces, they are so chic and just draws so much focus to your outfit. They are so feminine; yet edgy.

Lastly I brought some earrings a black pair of pin styled earrings for $1. These are so chic, I seen these so much and I had to have a pair, they are like edgy 90’s fad. Last I brought a gold ear cuff that just seemed beautiful to go with my set of piercings.

There you have it, a whole haul full of fashion and summer pieces that are guaranteed to have you dripping in summer style. I hope you enjoyed this post be sure to “Like” and let me know if you have heard of Dresslily?

Essence Makeup | First Impressions + Review

2017-04-15-16-50-39[1]

Beauty on a budget, yes please! I always go back and forth on luxury items and drugstore beauty, but the thing is beauty does not have to be expensive to work. 

Essence Beauty has been on the beauty scene for a while now and from looking at beauty reviews from Tati and Laura Lee raving about the products, I finally broke down and tried some of their products. These samples are *PR so my opinions are all my own.

Lets talk highlight, I am a huge fan of glowing, but aren’t we all, the essence pure nude highlighter is a baked highlighter, which I like more for wearing daily because it gives you a subtle glow, but you still are LIT for the Gods. This highlighter is completely build-able and it doesn’t look cake-y when you’re building on the layers. I got the shade 10 ( be my highlight) which is a very beautiful golden champagne shade, this is definitely gorgeous for the summer, over your bronzer, just go crazy with it. This highlighter retails for $4.49 USD I mean SOLD

I love drawing attention to my eyes, and I’m not completely a “lash girl” ( only for pictures) but bold lashes are my go to. Essences’ “I Love Extreme crazy Volume” mascara, if you love the separated lash look, this is definitely the mascara that you want to get. I have been using this for the past week, and the compliments are non stop. This mascara has a long applicator which allows to get every lash evenly, the bristles are separated evenly as well, so they don’t clunk at all. This mascara pacts on the volume and gives you that full of lashes look. 

I received 2 liquid lipsticks and a creme lipstick, which I’m so glad they sent a nude shade because, that’s literally all I wear in the summer. As a girl who absolutely Loves liquid lipsticks, I have mixed feelings about these products, I got the shades 04 (Showoff) which is a very pigmented Coral red tone & 06 (making a statement) which is a mauve-y pinkish shade. I know that liquid lipsticks can be defined in a ton of ways, but I think of liquid lipsticks as a matte finish, but they are both pigmented shades, and the shades I received were muted which is gorgeous, they remind me a little of the L”Oreal lip paints, which is great. The applicator is short, and comes with a flat doe foot applicator, which I’m used to longer ones, but I can get used to this, perfect for on the go. I really love the shades actually, I just think that calling it “liquid lipsticks” is a little misleading, I think that this product leans towards melted lipsticks or lip paints. None the less the shades are gorgeous and I will definitely more in the future.

If you tried this product tell me what you think about it?

I love pampering myself with mani/pedis, especially during the Spring/Summer because all the bright shades can be worn. I’ve tried essence’s nail polish before and talk about a small quantity that packs a punch.  The nail shade I’m wearing is “Club Hopper” which is a very Teal ( blue green) shade and It is so beautiful, The shade with one coat is gorgeous, a second just makes it pop. I really love the shade it’s super pigmented and very wearable in the spring season. 

Well that’s all for my mini haul/ first Impressions, WDYT?  Have you tried Essence Cosmetics? Did you like any of the products shown in the post? Let me know in the comments. Happy Easter
