The Sequin Skater Skirt

Alright y'all, I need your honest opinion.  Do you guys prefer white-wall/brick-wall photos or scenic shots like below?  I used to think the white-wall worked well, but I'm starting to think shooting outside's the way to go.  I'm curious to hear feedback so please take a second to leave a comment below!  I've also enlarged my pics - hopefully it's for the better?  *smiles*
I've featured two new pieces from +Deb Shops today on SS: a lace bodycon top ($10) + a sequin skater skirt ($8).  Both pieces are adorable AND on sale.  The top has a scoop neckline and 3/4 length sleeves - it's pretty much see-through so wear a sexy bralette underneath!  The skater is covered in sequins, and is on the shorter side (when I say "shorter side" I mean super duper short) so you'll probably want to wear tights underneath.
Oh, and my FAVE accessory as of late = this fab ear cuff courtesy of Dainty & Bold.  I've been looking for THE perfect cuff for god knows how long.  I'm SO happy I finally found the right piece.  This gorg item is on sale HERE for $30.  Worth EVERY single penny.  Super lightweight, perfect for everyday wear.  Also available in silver.

Crazy Cutouts

For today's post, I've featured a cute work-friendly look around a form-fitting peplum skirt courtesy of Charlotte Russe. This piece is currently on sale for $8.49 soooo that means you should've bought this YESTERDAY.  Seriously though, talk about versatility.  You can wear this baby out to party the night away or break necks while walkin' the hallways at school.  You'll be struttin' fosho.  Anywho, what are you waiting for?  Clicky HERE now...
I'm sure you've already figured this out, but I named my post "Crazy Cutouts" for my ballin' shirt.  I bought this piece WAY back in the day from Macy's, but I still wear it because I love the design.  Unexpected cutouts are so ridiculously sexy.  TIP:  If you want to show skin, make sure it's TASTEFUL.  For example, go ahead and show off your mile-long legs with a tight mini-skirt but PLEASE make sure you're covered on top.  I say pick one of the two: cleavage or legs.  Ya gotta leave SOMETHING to the imagination, hardy har har.
I got this Kate Spade bag a couple years ago while it was on sale.  I paired it with my top because I liked the way the prints meshed. Anywho, I'm such a fan of Kate Spade.  Their bags are SO cute.  In fact, I picked a few of my faves and shared them below so make sure to check them out...

Deb's Valentine's Day Edition - Part 3: Edgy

For my third and final V-day look, I've styled an edgy ensemble complete with a faux leather jacket.  I got this dress at Deb a couple weeks ago and thought it'd be PERFECT for the occasion.  Unfortunately I can't seem to find it online, but no worries!  Clicky HERE and HERE for similar pieces.
I'm SO in love with the illusion waist.  The black lace gives off a super sexy vibe.  I couldn't help but play it up by pairing the dress with a fierce faux leather jacket.  Oh, and the studded clutch and statement heels add edge.
How could I resist?  Ya'll know how much I love statement jewelry!  I've been sporting this piece left and right! I highly recommend buying this item - super cute and versatile!
