Fashion: October Lookbook || JustFab Trinity Bootie

Hello, friends!!

I'm back.  And this time...  I came prepared with a lookbook ;)

This month has been beyond crazy, but I've tried to take little snapshots throughout the weeks to document some of my favorite outfits.  I decided to recreate the looks & film a little video!

My room is still super unfurnished... white walls, white bedding, all white everything (I recently moved).  Although I'm quite tempted to leave it that way, it doesn't look so great as a background for outfit filming... it's deceivingly dreary.

Oh well, must make do for now!

Enjoy ♥

ALSO

I wanted to include a JustFab feature, presenting their "Trinity" bootie (which I wore in the lookbook video):


It's a great wedge ankle bootie - 4.25" slouched in faux leather and suede & pointed at the toe. 

The reason I decided to go with this particular style?  
Well one, I don't have anything like it.  
Two, it reminded me of the Isabel Marant "Amely" booties:

I love the shape. It's slouchy and casual but still gives any plain outfit that edgy kick in the rear.  Instead of having leather paneling on the back of the boot, the JustFab "Trinity" has faux leather detailing on its toe box.  They do need to be worn in a bit to help flatten the tip of the point (mine were slightly curved a bit upwards), but overall it's a really great alternative to the trending designer's shoe!



Thought this outfit would be fun with a shoe like this -- loved the idea of keeping things "foxy" with a sly clutch, specs and an imaginary ponytail.  I didn't forget the thought of some bronzy contour! 

A BIG THANK YOU TO JUSTFAB! ♥

Fashion: JustFab Abbie Bootie


Hi friends!

From now on, I'm going to start making my JustFab posts a little different and create separate posts for each one of my monthly picks! :D :D
Is anyone else as excited as I am??   

I mean, I've basically been head over heels for the brand (and each of my picks) since I've joined their blogger program… why not give each shoe its well-deserved spotlight?

Also, it gives me a chance to really wear the crap out of each style so that I can give my readers the comfort 411.

Otherwise, what's the point?
_______________________________

So here we go… 


THE ABBIE BOOTIE

Amazing, to say the least.  They're your typical low-cut bootie with that uber chic boyfriend vibe, with your not-so-typical price tag.  You know you've seen these types of booties before (Steve Madden, Sam Edelman, Zara, etc.) -- 
So are these JustFab alternatives worth it?

At $39.95, they're a steal.

The material of the body is made of a faux-suede  and sits on a 2-inch wooden heel.
They're a slip-on shoe, with no zipper or button closures -- however, there are side panelings on the bootie made of a stretchier material to help you out!

I absolutely love the way they're cut and am obsessed with this light grey/taupe color.  It's a gorgeous neutral shade, perfect for everyday and can help give the illusion of longer stems for any girls worried about feeling a tad stumpy.

(Like me... I'm a bit of a stump) 

Now on to how these babies feel.

I've pretty much been wearing them everywhere. Not even exaggerating. Ask anyone I know... I'll give you their contact information myself.


They're extremely comfortable. The toe box is pretty standard and would be fine for ladies with wider feet too. Also, the rubber sole is amazingly flexible and after a few wears, you can really start to feel the shoe break in. 

My only note:
Be careful walking heel-toe!  The sole is rubber but try not to step down directly on the edge of the heel first to avoid slippery mishaps ;)


Here I am out getting ramen (Izakaya Masa in San Diego - deeellliisshh omg. Go. NOW.) with my sister:
This is when I discovered it's possible to slip on dumb, but pretty.. shiny red brick.

And here's a little collage of me at work this past weekend for Beach Bunny & Love Haus.
10-11 hour days in these babies?

No problem.

 ( Soy the Love Haus frenchie adores them):
& yes... I'm wearing the exact same thing.. both days.
I'm a major outfit repeater.



I also want to start putting together styling boards like these, featuring my picks!

These boots look great with a pair of shorts & a loose tank, but you can definitely rock them in the fall with a long maxi or some skinny pants like these bottoms from Topshop!
I added a forest green flannel from H&M to the look with a berry lip color  from NARS to really give it that autumn touch, and a chunky chain necklace from All Saints for a little trendy/90s flair.

What do you guys think of the Abbie bootie??

Also, here's a cute shot of my sister and I at the JustFab flagship opening!! 

I got her the "Monroe" heels... they will look amazing on anyone!

Mani Monday: Nude & Matte

NUDE. MATTE. NAILS


Hello, everyone!

Hope you're all having a great Monday so far :)

I thought I'd share with you all what's been on my mind all morning... matte nude nails.
This is all I want on my fingertips at the moment.

Matte black nails are amazing, but matte nude?? I feel like I don't see this done too often & I think we ought to! There's something so fresh & trendy about them...

What do you guys think?


I love these three different shades of nude... The RBL is a little bit more blush-toned, the LVX is a creamy peach nude and the BL is a beautiful shade of taupe! Love them all.

1. Rescue Beauty Lounge in "Grunge" $20

2. LVX in "Ecru" $16

3. BUTTER LONDON in "Cuppa"$10

4. CHANEL VELVET TOP COAT
It's currently sold out on sites like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, etc.
But I found it on amazon! For a whopping $38




What kind of mani is on your mind today?
