Find of the Day: The Velvet Mini ($25)

I am super DUPER excited to tell you guys about my latest purchase! This fabulous minidress from ASOS is everything and more.  It fits me like a glove and flatters my body in the best way possible. Although it's only $25, the velvet doesn't look cheap at all - it could easily pass as "designer" IMO.  I actually bought it in purple first but returned it the second I found it in blush - I liked the color better AND it was cheaper...only by a few dollars, but still! Ha.
If you're looking for a sexy dress that slays, I highly recommend purchasing this!  It's comfortable yet figure flattering which is (obviously) ideal.  It cinches the small of your waist, exaggerating your curves and elongating your stems, while the draped bottom gives you extra breathing room.  This piece is perfect for a fancy date, a night out with friends or even holiday parties.
I accessorized this number with a dainty gold choker and carried a mini-evening bag to match!  Both pieces are from Charming Charlie, andddddd speaking of CC, I actually blogged about them on here a while back - the article was called, "Where to Buy Kate Spade Lookalike Bags for Less," in case you missed it.
Now, I know today's find is all about my new dress, but I gotta mention my shoes as well because I purchased them along with my mini.  If you're a fan of metallics like me, you're def. gonna want to purchase a pair since they're still available online for $15 (!!!!) They were originally $61 so scoop 'em up while you still can.

Find of the Day: The Striped Romper ($29)

A few days ago, I published a post on SS called, "How-to Look Polished AF in 5 Minutes or Less."  I focused on my summer makeup routine because I was partnering up with Jordana Cosmetics, but I saved some pics for today's find of the day.  This romper is, hands down, one of my absolute faves; lucky for you guys, it's currently on sale online at ASOS for $29 (originally $42).
I can't even begin to tell you all how much I love this romper!  It's made of a lightweight woven fabric that'll keep you nice and cool during the hottest of days, and it has a relaxed fit so you'll feel super comfortable wearing it.  The fine folks at ASOS call it a "beach romper," but IMHO it works for all occasions.  Wear it with white sneakers for a casual everyday look or pair it with fancy sandals for a lunch date.  For those of you wondering, I'm wearing a size 4, and it fits me perfectly - purchase it here before it sells out!
Other styles that are perfect for summer (all under $50):

I topped my look off with a fabulous sunhat from Dynamic Asia because it's the ultimate warm-weather accessory anddd it's cool to practice safe sun.  They're wholesale though so you have to buy a minimum of 3 per style.  I suggest getting together with a few friends and splitting costs because they're selling super high quality pieces for helllllla cheap.  I own several so I can seriously vouch for their quality!

Find of the Day: The Perfect Everyday T-Shirt Dress

It's time for another find, everyone!  For those of you looking for comfy dresses to wear on the daily, this number's an absolute must-have.  Personally, I don't believe in pants even though I wear them from time to time. I've always been a huge dress + skirt girl because they're cute and ridiculously comfortable.  This t-shirt dress oozes steeze!  Made of soft-touch jersey, it has dropped shoulders and a corset that'll conveniently highlight the small of your waist aka create the illusion of an hourglass figure without the gym, ha.  Wear it with wedges or simple sneakers for an effortlessly stylish ensemble.  Available for purchase HERE!
A closer look at my dress!  Isn't the lace up detailing adorable?
I know I've featured these shoes a billion times on here already, but I don't care.  They're uber fashionable and go with pretty much everything I own.  I also really love that they're velcro, ha.  I don't know about you guys, but I HATE lacing heels up.  I'll obviously do it if I have to, but I'll complain while doing so.  Purchase these babies HERE online at Guilty Soles!
Anddd the mini-backpack that won't quit!  Violet Ray can do no wrong.  Their designs are always on point, and I can't wait to see what they release next.  Unfortunately, I don't have a shoppable link for you guys, but I believe this bag's available at Ross.  Hopefully you'll have one close to you?  If not, here's another VR design that I can't get enough of - I featured it here a while back in case you're interested.

Find of the Day: For Lovers of Gingham

Um, styling the cutest summer dress ever today on SS!  I discovered this adorable number online at ASOS and just had to have it - I'm not gonna lie, it was pretty much love at first sight.  I'm a fan of all things girly so this find was a total must-have. It also didn't hurt that it was on sale for $34 (originally $53).  Made of 100% polyester, this piece features a cold-shoulder neckline, a keyhole front, and to-die-for-cute bow detailing on the sleeves.  As a plus, the silhouette's super relaxed so you won't overheat during the summer.  Click here to purchase!
For my latest OOTD, I wore my new mini with embellished Badgley Mischka sandals and an ivory crossbody bag to match - there's a lot going on with my dress so I didn't want to risk over-accessorizing so I skipped jewelry altogether today. For those of you wondering, I got these shoes WAY back in the day so unfortunately, I can't link you to these, but I'll make sure to post other lustworthy styles below.
As promised, all under $75:
A closer look at my Drew!  If you want to see my designer bag collection in its entirety, click here.  I blogged about it all a while back, BUT I actually need to update the post since I bought a few pieces since then, haha.  Who here's a bag fiend as well? If you are, comment below with your fave designer. Mine's probably Chanel and YSL!

Find of the Day: The Must-Have Mesh Top ($40.50)

Alright guys, if today's find looks familiar, it's because I wore it to Kusama a while back - click here if you missed the post and want to see pics of a kickass art exhibition.  I know it's pricier than my normal find, but it's seriously worth every penny.  For $40 (originally $58), you're getting a bamf top that you'll get crazy wear out of.  It's made of partially-lined mesh so I recommend wearing it with a bralette like I did below.
Another cool feature includes split-sides!  In addition to wearing this with pants, you can pair it with a dress and cuff the sleeves for a cool summery look.  If it's cold where you're at, simply throw on a sweater on top for a badass layering effect.  Made of 100% polyester, this piece fits true to size!  I got a US size 4, and it fits me perfectly.  Available for purchase here online at Asos!
Now onto my bag!  I don't know if you guys remember, but I shared my NY recap with y'all here a few weeks ago - click here for part 1 and here for part 2.  I mentioned that I stopped by Violet Ray's showroom and picked up a few goodies to feature soooo here's bag no. 2!  I styled bag no. 1 here not too long ago.

I'm obsessed with mini-everything right now - the last VR piece I showcased was an adorable backpack as well.  I really can't recommend them enough - their pieces ooze quality, and just LOOK at how adorable the detailing is.  I mean, there's a freakin' hashtag keychain - how cute is that? Available in stores at Ross for those of you interested.

Find of the Day: The Floral Romper ($20)

I know I published a "find-of-the-day" just yesterday, but I couldn't resist featuring this adorable romper on here. I recently got this in the mail from AMICLUBWEAR, and I'm absolutely loving this summery floral number.  If you're looking for a cute but comfy romper that transitions beautifully from day to night, purchase this baby stat.  
It's super flattering, and the fabric feels like butter.  The neck piece is separate so you can remove it if you wish. The bow belt's also detachable, but I recommend keeping that on to highlight the small of your waist.  Heads up, this piece is semi-sheer so you're going to have to wear a nude thong with this. Currently available online for $20 (originally $39.99) so take advantage while you still can!  As always, let me know if you have questions, frands.

Find of the Day: Silver-Toned Mid Heel Sandals ($22.99)

I can't even begin to tell you guys how cute these sandals are.  I bought them for $22.99 online at Zara a week ago and freaked the eff out when I got them in the mail.  I've been looking for cute mid heel shoes, and these are PERFECTION for realz!  They're SO comfortable, and the laminated finish is to-die-for cute.  Also, if it makes a difference, metallics are "in" this summer so you'd be right on trend.  OH, and for the record, this is NOT sponsored, and I'm making zero commission - simply blogging about these babies out of the goodness of my heart because I'm all sorts of awesomesauce.  
FYI: the heel size is 1.9", and I recommend going a half size down!  I usually wear 6.5, but 6 fits me perfectly.  Zara offers free shipping and returns, so buy two sizes if you're unsure.  You need to get $50+ worth of stuffs anyway in order to qualify for free shipping so knock yourself.  Let me know if you have any questions about these kicks.  Man, I wish they had more colors available in this style - I'd totally stock up.  Anywho, happy shopping - you can purchase these HERE.

Stepping out in PJs...Kind Of

If you follow me on pinterest, you already know that I have an unnatural obsession with bows.  So, when I stumbled upon this dress on ASOS, it was pretty much a done deal right from the getgo.  A PJ dress with bow sleeves? Um, can we say retail kryptonite?
Although this piece is made of 100% viscose, it looks and feels like silk.  You'll seriously feel like you're wearing PJs out because this dress is SO ridiculously comfy.  It has a v-neckline with piped edging, and the fit's super relaxed so you don't have to worry about sucking anything in post-meals, ha.  Currently on sale at ASOS for $42 (originally $58), I purchased this piece in size 2, and it fits me perfectly. 
TIP:  If you don't have anyone there to help you with your sleeves, tie them before you throw this baby on!  Oh, and I forgot to tell you about my new accessories.  I recently bought this YSL bag online at Neiman as an early birthday gift to myself, ha.  They were having this kickass promo so I thought I'd take advantage.  By purchasing this bag, I earned a $600 gift card (!!!!!) Plus, I already had store credit so I felt OK about splurging!  
Here's a close-up shot of my bag!  Isn't it a beauty? I still can't get over how gorg it is.  I can already tell that I'm going to get hella wear out of it since it goes with pretty much everything and works for any and every occasion.  I think YSL and Chanel are my two favorite bag brands!  What about you guys? Do you have any fave bag designers?

Find of the Day: The Long Sleeved Lace-Up Crop ($17.50)

Alright guys, it's time for another find of the day!  If you're a fan of the lace-up trend, you'll absolutely love today's pick.  This fabulous crop top is currently on sale for $17.50 on the amiclubwear website, which is all sorts of awesomesauce because it was originally $34.99.  On top of that discount, you can get an extra 50% off with code FIRST50 for a limited time (!!!!)  I think it's actually only good for the day so make sure you hustle.
Anywho, I got this piece a few weeks back in size small, and I wore the crap out of it while I was vacationing in the Caribbean.  I styled it with denim cutoffs during the day and cool high-waisted skirts + heels for fancy schmancy dinners in the PM.  Made of a polyester/spandex blend, this piece oozes sexy without showing too much.  Anddd as a bonus, you can wear it all year round!  As always, hit me up if you have any questions.  You guys know what to do!

Find of the Day: The Casual Cutout Dress ($15)

It's time for another fab find, guys!  I'm super pumped to tell you all about my new dress from AMICLUBWEAR.  If you've been following me on IG, you know that I'm currently on a cruise in the Caribbean! Anddd I don't know about y'all, but I'm all about feeling comfortable when I'm bumming around, which (very conveniently) brings me to today's post.  This fab sweaterdress is a serious must-have - it oozes steeze and is one of the most comfortable pieces I own. 
I dressed mine down with snakeskin slippers for poolside fun and elevated it with fancy accessories and platform pumps for dinner.  The dress is made of a polyester/spandex blend and features a scoop neckline with cutout sleeves - think of it as the wearable dress form of sweats.  If you're a fan of loose or oversized silhouettes, you'll fall head over heels in love with this design.  I own it in size small, and I love the way it drapes my bod!  For those of you interested, it's also available in black HERE!

Find of the Day: The Lace Mini ($46)

Alright everyone, I'm super excited to tell you guys all about my latest find.  This dress is definitely too pricy to be considered a bargain buy, but it was just too cute to pass up!  I found it online at ASOS last week and instantly fell in love with the design.  I've been obsessed with plunge necklines as of late, so naturally I was drawn to this piece.  
Made of a cotton and polyamide blend, this mini is ridiculously comfortable - it has a stretch waist so you have a lot of give aka no sucking in.  However, I do want to point out that the item is on the shorter side.  I honestly didn't mind the length though.  If you find it to be too scandalous, simply throw on black tights and heels.  You'll look chic, while creating the illusion of longer legs.  I paired the dress with OTK boots and wore a bralette underneath to keep things modest-ish, at least for the occasion.  For those of you interested in purchasing this piece, it's available for $46 here.  I bought it in size US 4, and it fits me well!  If you're nervous about sizing, simply order two.  Asos has a great return policy so you don't have to worry about shipping costs and whatnot.  
Also, a HUGE thanks to Joseph D Tran Photography for the pic! I shot a bunch of looks with him in Alexandria on Sunday, and I'm beyond excited to see more.  I hope you guys enjoyed the sneak peek!

Find of the Day: The Plunge Pencil Dress ($20)

I can't even begin to tell you guys how much I LOVE my new dress from ASOS.  This piece is seriously fire!  I dressed it down for today's OOTD, but you can wear it pretty much anywhere as long as you don't feel self-conscious sporting the plunge neckline.  Whether it's a fancy cocktail party or a GNO, you'll be breaking necks left and right. 

Made of a polyester & elastane blend, this item flatters like whoa and is super smooth to the touch. It contains a boned v-shape insert that helps keep everything in place, giving the neckline structure. Also, for those of you wondering, I'm wearing a US 4, and it fits me like a glove!  Care is easy - simply machine wash after wear.  As always, let me know if you have any questions! I'm always happy to hear from you guys.
For my latest, I paired my dress with BAMF custom-made boots from Two Perfect Souls.  I've been wearing them on repeat 'cause I just can't get enough of them - #sorrynotsorry.  Yes, they're on the pricy side, but they're ridiculously cute and comfortable so that'd make it totally worth it in my book. To top things off, I threw on an edgy jacket and carried by Chanel boy.  The bag was definitely a splurge, but you can get it for less!  Several brands offer similar designs for a fraction of the price - I've linked one for you in the widget below so get your scroll on.

4 Statement Necklaces You NEED in Your Life

It's no secret that I'm a HUGE fan of statement jewelry.  I mean, I talk about fabulous accessories on the daily, but I have yet to share my essentials all in one place SO I thought I'd feature 4 favorites for you guys today on SS.  The following necklaces are all available online at JWholesale for ridiculously low prices, and no, I was NOT paid to write this post so I'm making zero $$$.  Anywho, without further ado, let's tackle no. 1:

If this necklace looks familiar, it's because it totally should.  I've worn it on SS several times already in both silver AND gold! The piece oozes steeze and elevates any and every ensemble.  I recommend purchasing it in both colors because of its cool versatility.  To see the full outfit post, click here.

I can't get over how cute this piece is.  If you're looking to elevate your style game for date night or a fun night out with friends, purchase this STAT.  It looks great with plunging + boat necklines and turtlenecks, and it's perfect for those of you looking to instantly glam up your OOTN!  To see more from this post, click here.

Hands down, my favorite by far!  I haven't found anything quite like it, and I just can't get enough of the design. Up your texture game tenfold with this gorgeous piece.  I seriously can't recommend it enough!  It looks WAY more expensive than it actually is and could easily pass as a designer item. Like the round choker mentioned above, this works for both casual and dressy settings!  To see more from this post, click here.

This stunning statement piece is a do on so many different levels.  It sparkles like nobody's business and steps up your everyday style game tenfold.  Wear it on top of a comfy knit + skinny jeans for a killer casual ensemble that slays.

Andddd that's it for today!  What do you guys think of these necklaces? Do you have a personal favorite?  Oh, and before I forget, I have to tell you guys about JWholesale's store policy real quick. You have to purchase a minimum of $50 to shop there.  I know that seems steep, but you have NO idea how much stuffs you can get there for that amount, and they have a gi-GAN-tic selection available so you'll be able to fulfill that minimum easily.  Let me know if you have any questions, and remember to check back DAILY - I've decided to blog 7 days a week so there will be new content EVERY day.

Find of the Day: The Mesh Midi ($27)

Alright guys, it's time for another find of the day. I'm pumped to share my latest purchase with y'all today on SS! I copped this baby online at ASOS a week ago (available for purchase here), and I couldn't be happier with my buy. I'm convinced that I stumbled upon another magical LBD (I talked about one HERE a while back). The silhouette's flattering yet forgiving, and it's super comfortable because it has an elastic waist.  

Now, don't get me wrong, I love bodycon and all, but I really have to be in the mood for it.  If I feel even the slightest bit of bloat, I'll feel self-conscious all night long which is NOT my idea of fun. This piece, on the other hand, is a design you can always whip out.  So, if you're looking to impress this holiday season, pick this dress up STAT.  You really have nothing to lose because ASOS has an amazing (aka free) return policy.
I absolutely love that this dress is both sexy and classy at the same time! The cutout front + mesh fabric ooze sex appeal while the length balances everything out.  You're not really showing anything which keeps it classy in my opinion.  Your legs & cleavage are covered so you're just workin' that playful peek of skin.  

Made of a polyester + elastane blend, this dress is machine wash so you don't have to worry about taking it to the cleaners.  For those of you wondering, I bought this in a US 4, and it fits me beautifully.  The straps are adjustable so it works for girls with bigger busts!  So, who here's looking for a fab new holiday dress? Where do you typically shop for 'em? Are there colors or cuts you prefer?  Make sure y'all leave me a comment below! I always love hearing from you guys.

Find of the Day: The Frill Tank ($15.50)

Sharing yet another fabulous find with you guys today on SS!  This adorable tank top is currently available on ASOS for $15.50 (it was originally $38).  Made of a stretchy woven fabric, this top's super flattering and comfortable.  If you're a fan of frills, this tank is an absolute must-have.  I'm wearing a size 4, and it fits me perfectly.  I'd say it's roughly equivalent to a US small.  FYI:  European sizing is different so make sure you double check your measurements, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
For today's OOTD, I paired the aforementioned tank with fun skinnies! I don't know if you guys remember, but I covered Joe's Jeans' Denim event a while back on SS.  They had a bunch of different DIY options available (ripping, embroidering, etc.), but I just went with paint for funsies.  What do you guys think of them - yah or nah?  Would you wear these jeans?
