Consignment Find: Chanel Shoes

I still can't believe I am the owner of a pair of vintage Chanel lace up heels. I found them at a little consignment boutique for only $40! I couldn't pass up this amazing, once in a lifetime find. It's hard enough for me to find shoes that fit, let alone a pair of Chanels. They are already very well loved and I know I will love them up even more. I am so excited to wear them. 

 Obsessed with the details on the laces.

I can already picture the outfits I can wear these with. They will look fabulous dressed up or down. I am so glad these shoes walked into my life.

Cap and Gown


Dress: American Apparel | Sandals: Nordstrom BP | Sunnies: Ray-Ban 'Clubmasters' |
I can't believe I am a high school graduate! Saturday, June 14th was my graduation and it feels so surreal. Four years went by so quickly. Wearing my cap and gown was incredible and I had fun selecting a graduation dress from my wardrobe. I knew my chiffon dress from American Apparel was the perfect choice. It even matched my chords!
Later that night, my parents, my sister and I went out for a post-graduation dinner at a lovely little Italian place. I had the most delicious chicken parmesan I've ever tasted and the pasta was homemade perfection. I couldn't have imagined a better way to celebrate.
After dinner, we headed to the mall to do a bit of shopping. I picked up some goodies that I absolutely love. The Nordstrom we went to had a Topshop and I was thrilled when I discovered the Topshop makeup section. You could say I was in makeup heaven. After swatching multiple lipsticks to the point where the back of my hand looked like a painter's palette, I decided on a pink shade called "Pillow Talk." I also bought a MAC lipstick in "Snob." I guess I'm on a pink lipstick kick lately!
While in Nordstrom, I got a pair of white low-top Converse. something that had been on my wishlist for a long time. Everyone needs a good pair of Converse, right? They will go with everything and I can't wait to wear them.
At Urban Outfitters, I bought a simple black and white striped tee. I was debating whether or not I should buy it, but am so glad I did. It is the perfect summer basic that will look great with high waisted denim shorts and my new Converse.
I truly couldn't be happier with the way my graduation day turned out. From the beautiful ceremony, to the lovely dinner and shopping, it was all so nice and special. I had a wonderful time with my family and will never forget it. Now it is time for the next chapter of my life to begin.

Ray-Bans, Red Lipstick, and Leopard


Dress: American Apparel | Denim Jacket: Hollister | Sandals: Sam Edelman | Watch: Michael Kors | Necklace: Tiffany & Co. | Bracelets: Alex and Ani | Sunnies: Ray-Ban 'Clubmaster'
Ray-Bans, red lipstick, and leopard...what could be better? This figure skater dress from American Apparel is my new favorite dress. I think it is adorable and love how it looks with a denim jacket and some sunnies. It can be dressed up or down and is perfect for the summer. This dress is the cat's meow.

Black and White and Brandy Melville All Over

Tee: Brandy Melville | Skirt: Brandy Melville | Denim jacket: Hollister | Sandals: Sam Edelman | Watch: Michael Kors | Bracelets: Alex and Ani | Necklace: Tiffany & Co. |
What's black and white and Brandy Melville all over? My outfit. Brandy Melville has become one of my favorite stores, hence the tee and skirt combination. Their clothes are summery, comfortable, and the perfect addition to my wardrobe. Even though the closest Brandy is an hour away, I can still find them at my local PacSun. I will definitely be going back for more of their skirts, tees, and shorts.

Kimono Cool


Kimono: PacSun | Top: American Apparel | Shorts: PacSun |  Sunnies: Ray-Ban 'Clubmaster' | Sandals: Sam Edelman | Watch: Michael Kors | Necklace: Tiffany & Co. | Bracelets: Alex and Ani | Belt: Nordstrom BP |
This East Coast girl felt very West Coast in today's outfit. I paired American Apparel's classic striped crop tee with a pair of "mom shorts" and added a kimono to complete this laid-back look.
