DSW’s City Sandals

I’m a current resident in San Francisco, and a natural 5’8, and love to wear heels. Are you sensing my problem here?

It’s not only hard being tall and wearing heels (butI love it anyway – werk it ladies) but walking around city streets and hills can be killer (good?) for your calves and just a plan pain in the ass because of potholes, uneven sidewalk; and let’s face it – we walk more than we drive. 

For those of you that are looking for some cute spring to summer transition sandals that can be worn through the city streets, take a peek at my favorite below from DSW’s “City Sandals” collection.

Back to the Real World: A Vegas Recap Part 1

So I am officially back from Las Vegas – and full throttle at work. 

As promised, this is a mediocre photo diary of my time in Vegas with some insight into what I wore and why, and some fun treats I bought along the way. 

Image

 

This was as soon as we arrived in Vegas. After a fresh spray tan – black is the color to go to – primarily to ensure that you don’t get any tan on your clothes! Nothing looks more tacky. 

Shoes: Payless

Dress: Forever21

Necklace: Forever21 

Makeup: None

Hotel: Treasure Island

I typically always wear some sort of makeup; although there are those days when I’m just truly too lazy to bother. I took a picture of my staple must-haves that I bring with me whenever I travel and don’t have my entire makeup kit. Take a look at my fav products below! 

Image

E.L.F – Shimmer Powder

Benefit – BeneTint 

Lorac – Eyeshadow Palette

Covergirl – Define-a-line Black Eyeliner

Too Faced – Bronzer

NAKED – Urban Decay, Flushed 

Benefit – Hello Flawless Liquid Foundation 

NARS – Matte Lipstick, Deep Red

Above is a closer look at the entire eyeshadow palette. When I am going out somewhere, particularly Vegas I tend to use some of the darker colors such as Unspoken with Uncensored as a highlight sparkle. For day-to-day I typically highlight under my brow and along my lash line with unreal and then use Unconditional all over. 

Image

Our first night out, we got dressed up, hotel-hopped and gambled. I have officially learned, that gambling is NOT for me 🙂 

Image

Here’s a snap of us right outside of our hotel. 

I’m wearing:

Top: Rock n Republic

Shoes: Unknown – gift! But I got lots of compliments on them! 

Necklace: Francesca’s 

Stretch Leggings: Macy’s 

The next morning I was starving from staying up late and wanted a treat to hold me over until we went to our SuperBowl party where we had a buffet. I chose a pastry. Typical. 

Image

Directly across the street from our hotel is a quaint little bakery, Bouchon. I decided on the below. I die. 

Image

I don’t even remember what this is called. Something along the lines of “Dark Chocolate Almond Powered Sugar Croissant” Calories – do not count when you’re on vacation. 

I’ll continue part 2 featuring our SuperBowl event, evening festivities and outfits and end with our last night where we saw Circque de Soleil.

Stay tuned!

Trend Alert: Peekaboo and Hats

As the polar vortex ensues much of the East Coast, those of us on the West Coast are experiencing 55 degrees and sunshine, with slight rain overnight when we get our beauty rest. 

One fashion trend that I’m continuously seeing is the peekaboo bootie. It’s somewhat of an ironic fall shoe don’t you think? Typically we like to wear close-toed shoes as a) it’s warmer and b) we haven’t had our classic pedicures that we so frequently get in the summer. Well ladies, best get yourself to the nearest salon because the Peekaboo bootie is here to stay! 

Personally, I gotta have it! 

One of my favorite pairs right now is the DV Marana Bootie by Dolce Vita, you can get these at Nordstrom for $128.95.

Another must have for me right now, are fall hats. I’ve always been a hat person myself and yes, during the fall, and when paired correctly you can keep your hat on indoors. Typically it’s considered ill-mannered to continue to wear your hat indoors, (although this rule typically was more men only as they’re more likely to wear hats). But ladies, when worn stylishly and when looking classy, you can rock this hat indoors all day long!

This ‘Stripes Ahead’ Wool Fit Fedora is available at Nordstrom.com for only $38! Talk about a steal.

What are your thoughts about these pieces? Gotta Have It, Make Them Stop? #FashionPolice anyone?
