Hello! You know how a certain item of clothing or a stylish accessory can make you feel like you're on the top of the world when you're wearing it? Well, I hadn't felt that way in a while but these golden sunglasses changed that. Recently, I received these sunglasses courtesy of Giant Vintage and I'm obsessed. My confidence level soars the second that I slip these sunglasses on; when I have these sunglasses on, I feel like a cooler, much more hip version of myself. These sunglasses retail for $25 here and I would say the $25 is well worth it. 

I also took the chance to debut my jewelry that I received in my Rocksbox a couple days ago. For those of you who haven't heard of Rocksbox, it's a monthly jewelry subscription box. You sign up for $19/month and they send you three pieces of jewelry to wear for the month. When you return the jewelry, they send you other new jewelry to wear. Fall in love with one of the pieces that month? That's fine; you can purchase the item for a Rocksbox insider discount. 

This is the first month that I have subscribed to Rocksbox and I'm in love with it. I received a dainty bracelet, X ring and druzy necklace. And I haven't taken any of the jewelry off yet. Interested in trying Rocksbox out? Well I have a deal for you: if you sign up with promo code toribff70 you can receive your first box free! Who could say no to trying out a couple great pieces of jewelry for a month for free?

Birchbox: First Box for Just $5


Hello! Have you guys heard of Birchbox? Birchbox is a monthly beauty box subscription; you subscribe to receive five beauty samples sent to you in the mail monthly. It normally costs $10/month. Recently, I signed up for Birchbox; I love receiving packages in the mail and what's more fun than beauty samples?? A few days ago I received my first Birchbox and I think I'm already in love with my subscription.

My box contained samples of Harvey Prince Hello Body Cream, Modelco Ultra Long-Lasting Lipstick, 12 Benefits™ Instant Healthy Hair Treatment, English Laundry Eau de Parfum No. 7 for Her and Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré (24-Hour Miracle Cream). I'm loving the lipstick and body cream! I've added the body cream to my wishlist and will purchase it when my sample runs out.

If you are interested in beauty products at all, I would recommend checking out Birchbox. And if you sign up with my invite link sometime between now and October 9th, you can receive your first Birchbox for only $5! $5 is a wonderful deal for a Birchbox and if you sign up and decide you don't like it (which I highly doubt would happen), you can cancel your subscription and only be out $5. It can't get much better than that! So what are you waiting for? Sign up for Birchbox here!

Seventies Nostalgia

September 2015
September 2015

Hello! What's one of the best things about living with other well-dressed fashion merchandising majors? Being able to borrow from their über stylish wardrobes! Earlier last week, I borrowed this dress from my roommate, Bri. The navy color, tiered detailing, open back and bell sleeves of the dress make me wish that this dress was a part of my wardrobe. The breezy style of the dress lends itself to a very 1970s free-spirit kind of feel. 

To accentuate that 1970s ambience, I styled the dress with a pair of neutral wedges that remind me of the ever popular wooden clogs of the 70s. I also styled several boho necklaces and hippie rings with the look. Red lipstick and loose waves perfected the look.
