Shine in darks with a hint of white!


I was browsing online and found this super cute website called Lyst. It inspired me to write a blog about blue and black clothing and accessories. I love this blouse:
@www.lyst.com

I have a new love for stars. I think this is super cute and reminds me of a romantic night out with the stars in the sky.

          To pair this cute blouse I would wear these Alice + Olivia wedges.  @Saks.com

OR I would go with the motorcycle bootie look.


 Maison Martin Margiela @Saks.com

 I would wear these faded grey trousers from @Zara.com with both blouses.

This next shirt is on my "Need to Get" list.
    @www.lyst.com

I absolutely love this ombre blouse. I would wear it with a tank underneath white skinny jeans and these Dolce Vita heels. These heels are perfect for a day at work or even a warm spring night!
   Dolce Vita @Bloomingdales.com

         I absolutely love this Phillip Lim satchel with this outfit.


My Favorite Scarf that reminded me of my color theme in this blog is this star scarf from Zara.

Love these jewelry items, earrings @Bauble Bar and necklace @Gilt.com Anton Heunis, to pair with any of my shirts above.







I love all these pieces of clothing, shoes, and accessories I shared with you all today in this post. I love black, blue, white, silver and gold hardware together. Dark colors always look amazing with whites. Check back for some new posts soon! xx, Brittany

Calling all Vintage!!

Love for the Vintage Jewels..
There is something about lace, cameos, pearls, gold, silver, and florals that make vintage jewels so classy. Today in my marketing class we had to brainstorm ideas to make a new online website. Immediately the group I was in thought of "The Vintage Shop". We thought it was an excellent idea because we currently don't have one on the web. We wanted to make this online magazine for people who love vintage shopping and unique bohemian fashion and accessories. Two sites that inspired me by this idea are Spool No.72.com and ShopRuche.com. My friend Jessica told me about these two sites and I can't stop checking the homepage and searching for unique items!! Here's some items that I thought were great for an everyday vintage look.

 Vintage Pieces I Love:
This Vintage 70's Locket Necklace is a perfect statement for an everyday outfit. Both gold and silver are included in this amazing piece.
$28.00 @SpoolNo.72.com

I love this vintage charm necklace. The colors of the stones are precious. 
$52.00 @SpoolNo.72.com

The next item is this Vintage Honey Bee Bracelet. It was sold out the time I went to buy it but it is so adorable. It is so unique and I love the color variations. This is a gorgeous piece.
$38.00 @SpoolNo.72.com

I thought these earrings are perfect for an everyday spring/summer look.
$8.99 @Etsy.com

Older Vintage:
These Gold chandelier and pearl earrings are perfect for an everyday or night out look.
$40.00 @1928.com
 These pearl vintage earrings are perfect for a classy night out. $18.00 @1928.com

How cute is this bracelet? It is perfect for the everyday beauty fashionista who loves vintage Chanel!!



These are my two favorite vintage pieces of the day I found. Vintage CHANEL. These pieces brings the unique vintage look to our current trends today.


Hope you all enjoyed my vintage jewels that I admire. Vintage jewelry will never go out of style. The best thing about vintage is there are so many one of a kind pieces which will make you stand out from others. I always feel more stylish in vintage jewelry than regular jewelry because It shows my true style. Keep on wearing vintage everyone or if you don't go buy yourself a vintage item! xx

Work to Night Fashion* Featuring Gold and Black!

For me the perfect everyday Winter look is the one that can be perfect for work and nightlife. This means the perfect pant, blouse, jacket, bootie, classic chain/chic bag and chain accessories are a must. There is something about black and gold that can make any outfit very chic and glamorous. I love gold details in fashion.

First.. The "Blouse"

 The first look I love starts with the Classic Black Ruffle Blouse at a very affordable price
$59.60 @Zara.com

 OR you can go with the fun cheetah print..
$49.60 @Zara.com

Next is the "Perfect Trouser"! I spotted these Emilio Pucci trousers on @Gilt.com for $319.00. I loved them! They give a very unique and preppy vibe to your look.

        
And if you are into a more simple skinny jean look.. 
Try these skinny jeans from Zara! They are the skinny trousers with zips at the hem! I loved them because they have zippers and gold detail at the buttons and hips.

$59.90 @Zara.com

Now the best part of the outfit for me is ACCESSORIES. Gold metals, gold shiny luxurious hardware are my favorite!! 
$29.50 @Jcrew.com

I found this JCrew Belt that I love. It is very shiny and goes perfect with the trouser or the skinny jean look.

Next is the perfect Clutch! I found this at Gilt.com. Its a Rebecca Minkoff Clutch! Of course.. I spotted it because of the gold hardware! Its called the Obsession Clutch. The pratical part about this clutch is it can fit easy into a larger work satchel bag that you are using!
 $250.00 @Gilt.com

I fell in love with this Marc Jacobs Clutch that I will be showing you guys next.
I love the hardware and how it looks like crocodile. It is textured leather with a gold key lock for the front detail.
$499.00 @Gilt.com

   I love this chain necklace. It has a perfect amount of links and will 
give a great statement on your neck. Only $48.00 By Privileged @Gilt.com

I also fell in love with this bracelet by Ash found @Gilt.com for $198.00.


         I love Tory Burch's double warp logo Bracelets. They are super trendy and chic!
                  This bracelet screams "Chanel with an edge". $95.00 @Nordstrom.com
                                 
With this outfit there are two perfect shoe options in my mind. If your going with the First ruffle blouse by Zara I would wear these booties. They are so edgy and rebellious!$190.00 @ Zara.com


  If you are going with the cheetah print and a dressy night look I would go with these. These are a perfect size heel for either day or night. The suede makes it a great fall/winter look. They are classic ankle bootie you'll love!
$129.00 @Zara.com


Hope you all enjoyed this stylish outfit. I think the best part of this outfit is how glam you will look when its all put together. I absolutely love black and gold. My favorite two colors!! That's it for this blog.. but come check back in a few days for more!
