Oxblood and Dots

13 Feb

Happy Hump Day Everyone,

The snow already melted from last week’s blizzard from the 40 degree weather we had over the weekend. I wish the snow would stick around it looks prettier than this gray weather we have had lately. I am sure you have seen this sequins polka-dotted top a lot from other bloggers, only I have seen it in the black with the white polka-dots. I settled for the vintage champagne I figured it would transition well for spring and summer. Who says sequins is only for winter?

Yes, this black and white snake print clutch again! For one, black and white is big this spring, two black and white has always been classic, and three this clutch seems to go well with many of my looks, (and to think I thought about returning it).

Snake Skin and Cheetah Print

26 Jun

Hello there Gorgeous Gems,

After my Florida post I figured I would tone it down, also because the weather somewhat cooled off. I attempted this classic constantly trending combing animal prints and as if that was not enough I added the classic Burberry plaids. I am a big fan of plaids as mentioned in a previous post here. In theory fashion is about trending classics with a twist or with a slight update would you agree?


Loafers: Gucci in forest green which I consider essentjewel. These are what I call black heels because they play as black heels.

Cardigan: J.Crew I am obsessed with cardigans. I can never have enough of them in my closet.

Nail polish: essie no more film, I have a feeling I will be wearing this one a lot in the fall.


Snake skin dress: Ann Taylor. This dress takes me from ordinary to confident, don’t you love when a dress does that? If only I could wear it to an interview, kidding!


Earrings: twisted stones by essentjewels which you can find here currently an essenjewel for me, I am thinking they will remain an essentjewel not only currently.


The Burberry bag is very meaningful to me because it is one of the first things my hubby bought me, years ago and I didn’t select, he knows me too well. He knows I love the classics this was also very early on in our relationship (thank you honey).

Want-to-be Wayfarer: bungalow I need a genuine pair like yesterday, however these are not too shabby, bungalow does an awesome job about what they choose to carry in their store, as I walked in there I immediately felt a California vibe because of the music they were playing, and the ambiance. Lipstick by FlIRT wicked, how can you not buy a lipstick called wicked.


And pearl strand essentjewels eccentric you can find here, which lives up to its name, every time I combine a get-up that in my opinion is pretty eccentric, I add this simple pearl strand which is a lot of the time is all I need. For more of a youthful approach to the pearl strand wear it partially underneath the neckline of your top everyone knows it’s a pearl strand even when its partially showing.

Jewels, what are some classic combos or modern trends that you attempted and where surprised with the results?

With love,
Monica
