Breast Cancer Awareness

Hi! Today, I'm going to talk about breast cancer and breast cancer awareness.
Did you know that....
Not only females can get breast cancer, men can too?
1 in 8 females will get some form of breast cancer during their life?
It doesn't matter how old you are, even if you are young that you can get breast cancer?
You can't prevent breast cancer? Overweight and obese women have a higher risk of getting breast cancer?
Plastic water bottles don't cause cancer? Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer?
About 39, 500 people will die this year from breast cancer?
Breast cancer causes 3% of the deaths in women?
There are more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors that live in America?

Lovely in Purple

Happy Tuesday! Today I chose to wear a dress that I thrifted over the weekend. I bought it at a thrift shop in Williamsburg. Surprisingly, the dress needed no alterations; I didn't try it on before I bought it because I was in a hurry. It only cost four dollars and is made from an amazingly soft fabric. The dark shade of purple is perfect for fall. It was probably my best find from over the weekend.

My favorite rings.

Dinner at zpizza. Their pizza was phenomenal!
My shopping finds. I didn't go to the outlets; I much prefer thrift shops. Thrifted Dooney & Burke leather bag, denim vest, green wool button down, lightweight blue-green jacket, buttery soft leather bag, sparkly belt and a purple dress which is not pictured. I purchased the basket at a stand that someone had set up during half time. They were raising money to go to Kenya. The basket that I purchased was made in Kenya by someone that the girl had met. For $10, I thought it was a great deal! I can't wait to put handles on it and use it as a purse.
Out and about in Williamsburg.
The College Delly for lunch before heading back to Richmond.
Yummy Rita's lemon italian ice.

Hi! This weekend I went to Williamsburg with my family. We were there for William and Mary homecoming (both my parents went to college there.) I managed to take a bunch of photos while I was there and had my mom take pictures of my outfits also. I hope you all had a great weekend!

My Great Gatsby Dress

Hi! Today I wore what I call my "Great Gatsby" dress. For some reason, this Urban Outfitters dress reminds me of the novel, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald every time that I wear it. Maybe it's the 1920's-like cut (not seen very well in the photos), the drape-y fabric or the airy, whimsical, romantic leaf pattern that make me feel that way. I also wore a lovely shade of green nail polish that matches perfectly with my dress. I purchased it from and recently received it in the mail. The color is absolutely dreamy and for $3.80, I'm delighted with my purchase.

Le Chat Beige

Hi! Happy Friday! I'm so glad that it's the weekend; teachers just love to give you 100 tests/ quizzes on Fridays and after that, I need a break. Anyways, I have a sweet, little etsy shop that I'm reviewing today so be sure to read below to hear more about it.

I was lucky enough to have the lovely Annie from Le Chat Beige to send me a few products to review. I received the black bow ring and the turquoise flower earrings. One thing I loved about receiving my package was that the ring and earrings were wrapped in pink tissue paper and placed inside the cutest little red, plastic heart container. Today I wore the black bow ring and let me just say- I love it! It is the perfect size and the black bow is so cute. I didn't have to worry about it fitting my finger because it has an adjustable band. I have a feeling that this ring will be making a regular appearance in my wardrobe. It's black and it's a ring; how could I not love it? The quality of the ring and earrings are also very good. I haven't worn the earrings yet because I just got the package earlier this week. However, when I opened the package and saw the earrings I was very excited; they are the perfect shade of turquoise. If you know me well, then you may know that I love to wear black. Well, I also love to own anything turquoise. It's a little obsession of mine. Even my walls are turquoise. So then it should be no surprise that these earrings bring me great happiness; I can't wait to wear them!

Overall, Studio Le Chat Beige is an amazing etsy shop! The items are very chic and inexpensive, the shipping is very fast and Annie is a great person. I would highly recommend that you check out her adorable shop here. It's perfect for bow lovers, hair clip fanatics and flower earring collectors.

Disclaimer: Annie from Le Chat Beige sent me the items to review but did not tell me what to say. The thoughts above are my own original thoughts.
