Nevermind for Paperfox – Shoedazzle Denim

Prepare to turn heads ladies!

On August 13th, Shoedazzle announced the exclusive launch of the premium denim collection Nevermind for Paper Fox. The new line is a premium denim collection that was designed exclusively in Los Angeles and features authentic vintage washes and sleek fashion-forward silhouettes. All of that sounds like great wording for a press release so I’m here to give you the story from what I know about the collection first hand.

The collection will release new styles every month which will keep it in line with Shoedazzle monthly shoe club releases. So far, the prices have ranged from $69.95-$79.95 (VIP)/$110.95-$129.95 (Reg) which honestly is a steal given the detailing and materials used on the denim in this line. And trust me, I’ve gone so far as to spend $169 on a pair of patch work leather denim from Guess so…yeah…I know…I’ve compared.

For my first pair, I chose the Elissa. I’m sure you don’t need me to explain why (statement piece, helloooo).

I had absolutely no idea how I was styling these jeans and I honestly still don’t but they are absolutely beautiful. You can very clearly see the craftsmanship and details put into this one style.

For my first time wearing them, I paired it with a simple white button down that had a lace up back feature, a cocktail ring and a pair of my black Steve Madden heels. I really tried to keep everything else simple so that I wouldn’t take away from the beauty of the jeans.      2014-08-28-13-29-03_deco 2014-08-28-13-30-25_deco 2014-08-28-13-31-19_deco 2014-08-28-13-32-55_deco 2014-08-28-13-33-42_deco

Outfit details:
Ring: Throwing stones from Shoedazzle
Shoes: Steve Madden Delerius from Shoedazzle
Pants: Elissa from Shoedazzle
Clutch: Jessica Simpson

Are they worth the $79.95 VIP member price tag? Absolutely!

Do you need them now? Please scroll up again if you haven’t already said yes!

However, before you check out I would definitely recommend getting yourself measured beforehand. These do run true to size but they didn’t have a lot of stretch in them so they will definitely hug all of your curves. If you’re in between sizes, I would probably recommend going up one size but even with that I’m a bit hesitant. I picked out my normal size and I had a little bit of trouble getting them on the first time. When I say trouble, I don’t mean like that girl trying to get on her jeans in the youtube video that’s going around :). What I mean is I had to do a little shimmy and shake to get them on over my thighs and when I finally did, I had to do a little “dip it low” to get them over my humps and situated on my waist the way I wanted. <—I did tell you I would be completely honest in my reviews.

The final wrap up? Buy them? Yes! Send me pictures? Of course! Check out the #denimhour on Shoedazzle’s Facebook page on August 28th at 8:00pm to win a prize and maybe your own pair of NVM jeans? Well…I’ll see you there!

Shoedazzle & Yogurtland

I don’t know why but I’ve always been a last minute person and it’s beginning to drive me crazy. For example, I’ve seen Shoedazzle and Yogurtland post about their contest probably 5 times a day on every single social media channel that I follow them on but yet, I still waited for the last minute to decide to go to Yogurtland to take pictures. Now cue the dramatics…

Ever since I started working in NYC, I have been trying to get used to travelling without my own car and on public transportation. I swear it is seriously the worst having to figure out if I need to take the red line to the orange and then to the yellow and heavens forbids one of those lines are delayed or out of service for a few hours…(-_-) I can’t…

Luckily, when I searched for a Yogurtland location, I saw there was one walking distance away from Penn Station.

I walked into Yogurtland and decided to try the Red Velvet Cupcake Batter and French Vanilla mixed with a Cookie and Chocolate Yogurt for my photoshoot. Yum!

Once I added all of my toppers, I ran off to catch the train. It probably wasn’t the brightest idea to get frozen yogurt right before a 45 minute train ride but it was probably one of the funniest moments that I’ve had on the LIRR in a long time. I had a ton of bags with me, my two yogurts and had my ipod blasting #Selfie by The Chainsmokers. Now just imagine me on the train ride home, head thumping to #Selfie.

“Can you guys help me pick a filter?
I don’t know if I should go with XX Pro or Valencia
I wanna look tan
What should my caption be?
I want it to be clever
How about “Livin’ with my bitches, hash tag LIVE”
I only got 10 likes in the last 5 minutes
Do you think I should take it down?
Let me take another selfie”

All the while I’m on the train singing and taking my Yogurtland Selfie’s!

Ah, the things that I do for good content. Anyway, I finally made it back home and changed to take the pictures for the contest!

Dr. Scholls Really Flat

Dr. Scholls Really Flats

IMG_4956 IMG_5035 IMG_5054 IMG_5111 IMG_5126

Shoe Details:
Leather Upper
Pointed Toe
Ultra Cushion Footbed
Color: Blush
Fits: True to Size

I have to admit that when I manage to talk myself into buying a pair of flats, I normally try to find a pair that is extremely comfortable but still cute and stylish. When I saw these Dr. Scholls online, I was a bit hesitant because they were just…regular. There was nothing that made these call out to me – no bling or stylish design, but I still decided to give them a chance.

I can’t really rave much about them because they are so simple, however, these are probably one of the most comfortable and practical pair of flats that I have in my shoe collection. It seriously feels like I’m walking on tiny air clouds under my feet. If you’re looking for a simple and practical shoe for long walks to and from the office then stop by your local DSW and pick these up for $49.95.

I’ve Got The Blue Denim Blue’s

Ideally, when you take pictures for a fashion shoot, you would like to have the items that you wore once it’s over. “I’m going to look BOMB when I wear this on my next date!” one might hypothetically utter in sheer excitement. Well at least that was my idea and now I can’t find my damn Alexander McQueen sunglasses after taking these pictures.

-Inserts dramatic pause-

I know, I know. You’ve seen me wear these glasses a million times and now a million and one but in my defense, I just got over losing my Gucci sunglasses at the Auto Show in NYC three months ago. First the Gucci’s and now the McQueen’s!!!

I can’t….

Rise & Shine – MAC Pleasurebomb

So I need more than 140 characters to even begin to explain the type of weekend that I had. As you read this, imagine a girl rocking her dark wash denim overalls, a pink crop top, sparkle Betsey Johnson flip-flops, sipping on her green tea and jamming to Monica’s (It’s Just One of Those Days) Don’t Take It Personal song. Yes I had to throw it all the way back to that…it was just one of those weekends.

Besides that I wanted to share with you a picture of one of my top 5 lipsticks from 2013 – MAC Pleasurebomb.

IMG_241815671035566

I was lucky enough to purchase one for retail on the day MAC Cosmetics launched the Winter MAC Rihanna collection. At first, I couldn’t understand why people were camping out over night for this collection but as you can see, the color is amazing and the packaging is to die for.

I just finished placing a huge $500+ order on Sephora.com because I wanted to start sharing some make up looks and tutorials on here. So keep your eyes peeled!
