This cardigan is quickly becoming my favorite, I don’t care how many people seem to hate on it. Blue/Teal/Green big sequins? Yes Please.
I wore this outfit to the doctors, classy, I know. Where I found out JUST how sick I’ve actually been. With the prognosis, my mom felt bad and took me out for a nice lunch of Spike’s Junkyard Dogs followed by some mall adventures.
After the mall we continued with the retail therapy at my favorite thrift store, Saver’s! I found a gorgeous semi sheer rose dress for $3.99 and this lilac faux ostrich jacket for, wait for it… $2.99!!! talk about aSTEAL! When I stopped at Target for my antibiotics, I picked up Esse’s “She’s Picture Perfect” to match.
The best part has to be that the cashier thought I looked so good in the dress, he stamped our coupon card an extra bunch of times…We only spent $10, you get a stamp for every $5….. you do the math!
I’m off to enjoy some antibiotics and penne alfredo and kick this cold before my trip next week! Sorry there’s no recipe this week, no one will eat anything I cook due to my sickness
ps! Don’t forget to enter my giveaway of my favorite beauty products here! You could win a Dior nail polish, Dior mascara, Kat Von D eyeliner, and Garnier moisturizer!

Disclaimer: This was my first time on my roof; my photographer friend was nervous about the “No Trespassing” signs, and his nerves were then transferred to me. Err Go, These photos are not the best that they could be. Also, it was an exceptionally windy, late October day.
One Girl Who… jacket
H&M dress as a top
DIY body chain
Now, I try to keep my posts interesting by diversifying my style, shoot locations, et cetera. Hopefully my friend and I can officially conquer our fear of the roof signage and produce more great shots from up here! Because, well, once those green trees finally succumb to their fall foliage and death, there is a FANTASTIC NYC skyline view. Be jealous that I get to see the skyline daily…it’s something I NEVER take for granted!

Friday night I was invited to attend the in-store launch for DC brand House of Versatile Style.
This gorgeous little boutique located right in the sweet and serene Clinton Hill, Brooklyn carries a number of lines and has no just began carrying HVS (House of Versatile Style). The event itself was a blast; a small intimate group of fashion and beauty bloggers, including my dear Monroe, with delectable sangria and cupcakes in a range of flavors. The designs being sold by HVS are a curation of the past couple of season’s lines, but still just as fashionable with shiny, sparkly, tribal, and versatile pieces. The store will also be carrying some HVS jewelry which is just as flashy and are great statement pieces.

If you know me then you know I watch a lot of the Disney channel (for “style” purposes). I noticed in the previews for the new show Shake It Up Bella Thorne wearing a black sequined sweatshirt with plain sleeves…I was digging it. Then I saw Hannah Montana wearing the same one but in gray. I fell in love.
(LtoR) J. Crew, Michael Kors, Guess, Vince
Upon doing some research I’ve found a few results. G by Guess has one in Black, as well as purple (and gray, but the gray has their obnoxious logo all over it) for a modest $45. J. Crew has a wonderfully cream colored jearsey sweatshirt in the same style for $168. Vince, however, has a great looking gray fleece one for sale, for a higher price tag of $275, and can only be purchased at Nordstrom stores or online. If you want to go for name brand, I suggest the nearly $400 priced Michael Kors sweatshirt.
After falling in love with sequined sweatshirts I then stumbled upon sequined baseball tees. Nothing says laid back and cool like a baseball tee and with the added sequin pocket it’s just that more chic. The company with the best? Son Of John. you can easily find these burn out shirts on Ebay for $107-$110
I also think these could be an easy DIY project. Maybe something I can try sometime, or you can try it! IF anyone does, I’d love to see pictures!
Anyway, go out there in a chic sequined sweater and look effortless cool; rock it!
