The ULTIMATE Gift Guide {For Her}

We're exactly one month away from Christmas so I thought I'd share some gift ideas for the lucky lady in your life. Be it your mom, sister, bff, or even yourself -because gifting yourself doesn't hurt anybody right?-, I figured now would be a better time than ever to get your gifting juices flowing right before the Black Friday and Cyber Monday madness starts! 

Be sure to keep your eyes on the blog as I'll be sharing some of my favorite Cyber Monday deals & how to get the most bang for your buck this holiday season!

Denim Skirt. Louboutin Pumps.


Coat: Forever 21 {last seen here. Similar style here + here}. Shirt: purchased in Paris {last seen here}. Skirt: Flying Tomato {no longer available but similar here + here}. Shoes: Christian Louboutin {similar here}. 

I'm obsessed with the denim skirt trend this season & after trying on a countless number of skirts, I finally found on that fits not only my denim skirt requirements, i.e. midi length, button-front opening, & most importantly, a little bit of stretch, but one that wasn't too pricy. I've worn it with everything from sneakers {seen here} to lace-up oxfords, & now heels & if I'm really being honest, it's by-far one of my most worn pieces of the season. The one I'm wearing is no longer available but I've linked a few above that are super similar in style.  

Happy Monday!


SAVE or Splurge: Anya Hindmarch vs. Skinnydip

If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen this picture I posted a few weeks ago showcasing my new Anya Hindmarch leather stickers. If you aren't familiar with this name, Anya Hindmarch is a London based bag & accessories designer who {overnight} created a name for herself with her iconic leather stickers. Upon them dropping {first on Net-A-Porter}, they sold out immediately & quickly became all-the-rage in fashion, particularly for the girls who love to accessorize their bags and/or leather goods. 

Fast forward a few months & I'm casually browsing through bag accessories at Nordstrom & come across Skinnydip, a {too} London-based accessories brand specializing in fun & quirky stickers, pouches, and phone cases. I couldn't help but compare their stickers to Anya Hindmarch's because, well, they certainly are serving me the same tea, but for half the price! Well actually, more like three-fourths the price, i.e. 75% for those not so great w/ numbers. 

Upon closer inspection, I found that Skinnydip's stickers are made from a plush, polyurenthane material, almost similar to terry cloth whereas the Anya Hindmarch's are 100% genuine leather. {Hence one reason for the "investment-like" price point. Stickers range between $65- $200 depending on their size & detail}. 

Nonetheless if you too love adding a fun & quirky touch to your accessories, check out both Anya Hindmarch & Skinnydip stickers! Links will be below!

*Confession moment* Sometimes I'm guilty of forgetting what I have in my closet. -Hence why I've been on a selling binge via my Postmark closet. Check it out what I'm selling here.-  Nonetheless, it was particularly cold & windy over the weekend & as I reached for my trusty camel coat, I quickly remembered I had this amazing cape stored away just waiting  to be worn. I purchased it last winter & unfortunately did't get much use of it. But thankfully this fall is alot cooler than last year meaning you'll be seeing it on repeat throughout the next coming months.

Stay tuned.

12 Ways to Get Cozy for Fall

It's about that time of the year where I just prefer to stay in. And on the nights that I do, there's nothing better than cozying up in a plush throw, reading a good book, sipping on something sweet, & simply enjoying the colder weather. From one of my favorite hot chocolates to this calming room spray, & this pom-pom scarf beanie -great for the days I actually am caught in the cold-, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite cozy weather items that I think you too will love. And for the sake of the coming holidays, these also make for amazing gifts!
