Vintage Heart

Hello! Today, I styled my look around my black and white cat print dress. This dress has been in constant rotation in my wardrobe so far this semester. I keep turning back to it week after week. The quirky kitty-cat print allows my personality (ahem, love for cats) to shine through. 

Due to chilly temperatures this morning, I threw on my black, ruby red and forest green plaid blazer. Plaid is one of the most popular trends this season and I couldn't be any happier about it. From cozy plaid blazers (like my blazer above) to pleated plaid skirts, I have simply fallen in love. Prepare to see a lot more of plaid on my blog this fall! 

Although many people wouldn't dare to pair this classic plaid with a quirky kitty-cat print, I love the way that the two prints look together. When styled together, they work to complement each other and really make the prints of each other stand out.

It was too cold out this morning to go out bare-legged so I slipped on a simple pair of black opaque tights followed by a pair of classic black oxfords. I accessorized with a pair of round green sunglasses, a vintage Coach bag and a faux ruby statement necklace.

This faux ruby statement necklace can be purchased (if it comes back in stock) on ShopLately for $12.99 + shipping. It is sold by a boutique that goes by the name of Vintage Heart. Isn't that such a sweet name for a jewelry shop? Vintage Heart is composed of stunning vintage-inspired jewelry and accessories. And the prices are all quite reasonable- their most expensive accessory doesn't even cost $20! Could a jewelry shop get much better than that? 

But more about the specific necklace that I ordered. This is the Ruby Clear Statement Necklace and like I mentioned earlier, it costs $12.99 + shipping. Although I just ordered it last week, it is already sold out- talk about a hot commodity! However, you can sign up to be on a waiting list to buy the necklace HERE. And if I were you, I would definitely recommend not just checking this necklace out but also checking out all of the other great pieces that Vintage Heart stocks. 

Overall, I am very pleased with this necklace. For an inexpensive necklace, the quality is phenomenal. And I'm just in love with the style/design of the necklace. It is very classic, very vintage-inspired. This necklace is a piece that I can see myself continuing to wear well into the future and with many different looks. And of course, how great would it look with some red lipstick?
