OOTD: Ruffles, Leopard & Glitter B. Atwoods







I've been wearing scarves as cardigans non-stop lately!  I just love it - it's nontraditional and adds an interesting twist to covering your shoulders vs. a regular cardigan.  Plus it automatically ups the drama factor in any outfit and gives the added bonus of looking a bit like the "Kimono" trend going around BUT when you're done wearing it "Kimono" style you get to wear it as a scarf again! hahaha Dual purpose!!  If only I were so resourceful with the rest of my wardrobe bahaha :p 

Sidenote: I AM OBSESSED WITH MY B. BRIAN ATWOODS when I was walking down the stairs after dinner my shoes were crazy sparkling like mad (and yes I really did just say that :) I could not stop staring at my feet I nearly broke my neck going down the stairs bahahaha.  

Conversation that ensued

The Hubs: OMG YOU'RE GOING TO KILL YOURSELF STOP LOOKING AT YOUR SHOES
Me: BUT IT'S SO SPARKLY IT'S LIKE DIAMONDS FOR MY FEET!!!!

AHAHAHAHAHA

  2. Wearing your scarf as your cardigan is so chic! I thought you were really just wearing an kimono. I love how you include pink is a lot of your OOTD posts. The Brian Atwood shoes are gorgeous, I wouldn't stop staring at them either if I had them! Your curled hair always looks great.

    Oh, and thank you Lisa for getting back to me about all the questions I've asked you. I really appreciate it! So I'm way too careful with my Chanel huh? Do you have any tips to keep it nice? I want to carry it as much as I can!

  22. haha LIsa your convo between you and the hubs was hilarious, but I can definitely see why you'd be staring. Those Brian Atwoods are so fun and look great on you. Love how all the details of your outfit go together and you look so pretty with your perfectly organized closet in the background. hehe. You 'man vs food' post was so clever too. I didn't know they had burgers that big in Germany.
    Nice post,

  35. I have the Neverfull MM. The PM is too tiny and the GM is way too big on me. I thought about it because it was $50 more but it was just too over powering. I think the MM is the perfect size. I was able to stuff a cardigan, nine west wedges (size 7, with a platform), wallet, make-up bag, regular 16.9oz bottle of water, and I STILL had room! It is truly a neverfull bag. Haha! I love this bag. <3
