{Manic-ure Monday} Chanel Cosmic

Monday, July 27, 2015

I'm darkening the manic-ure monday mood this week. I still have some bright colors to get through but I wanted my nails painted as close to a black as possible for this week and Chanel Cosmic was just waiting the wings.  I'm on my fourth cup of coffee for the day but after having a sun & fun filled weekend I'm trying to kick Monday's butt and #GetShitDone. However, all I want to do is crawl into bed and take a nap.

{Splurge or Save} Chloe Drew Bag

Friday, July 24, 2015

I’ve never really found the appeal of Chloe bags. From back in the day when the Paddington came out it had a huge cult following but it seems like each time the French fashion house releases a new style it’s like moths to flame. Everywhere I look I see this Chloe Drew Bag and now this Chloe Faye bag, which I must admit is pulling at my fashion heart strings just a tad. I mean hello, its grey and that chain. But anyway back to the Chloe Drew bag – I see this bag everywhere and I don’t know what the appeal is. I’ve looked at in person, and I don’t think it’s anything special but to each its own. And of course when an item is this hot, everyone wants a piece of the action from inspired by bags to completely knocked off someone will put it in your hands. For my frugal ladies, I’ve found you a pretty spot on look-alike.

For an even better save, Forever 21 has a similar one bag for $23. The difference is on the peg locking clase.  You can check it out here.

It's safe to say the July heat & humidity that DC is accustomed to arrived this past weekend. It's brutal & it makes putting on any amount of clothes a little painful. And while the easiest thing to wear are light & airy dresses, I usually switch it up between shorts and the occasional summer dress.  Let's not get crazy here, we are talking about me, who loves her jeans.  I'm really not a huge fan of either in the summer: dresses or shorts but let's be real, it's just too damn hot for jeans. I'll pick shorts over dresses/skirt, and try to stick to light colors & nothing too fitted. I love this sleeveless top from J. Crew because it is light, airy, and feels so comfy for those hot days. Stay cool my friends.
