Kendra & Shoes: What Else is There?!

20140130-081001.jpg

I went to the “mothership” {which is always either Home Goods or KS} on Friday to check out the new Atlantic and Neon collections by Kendra Scott! GORGEOUS! Of course I picked up a couple things: something old, something new, something neon, something blue!! Note: I shopped at the Newport store with Kendra Gals Christina, Madison and Larissa- they are FABULOUS! If you go, ask for them!

Left the house wearing this:

LITERALLY IN LOVE WITH THIS LONG, FRINGE, TURQUOISE NECKLACE (below)!!!!! I HAD TO HAVE IT! It’s not from a new collection, but it is definitely timeless! This turquoise blue mama will be a long-standing staple in my jewelry closet…no question! I’ve already worn it 5 or 6 times; both regular and backward. In love! Kendra, this gorgeous necklace is my personality piece for sure!

Also had to have this RAD Rayne necklace in Neon Yellow; it’s one of my fave signature colors! The perfect highlight to any outfit! Thanks for the Polaroid, Madison!

Wearing the goods…

Here’s a quick pic wearing the same necklace, the way it was designed from the front. Styled with Kendra Scott Genevieve earrings. I love its diversity!

And the NEON YELLOW!!!! This necklace has so much detailing in the metalwork, and the quality is superb. I love that it’s lightweight and instantly pulls my look together. This color is hot, hot, hot!

Such a fabulous time at Kendra Scott! Follow us on Instagram @fashionbeautysisters.

Throwback Thursday

Ending my sorority recruitment today I thought only fitting to throw it back to my last recruitment experience. It was one of the nicer days and I wore a khaki colored blouse from Forever 21, a white and cream colored lace skirt from a little boutique called Carol’s, some nude minimalistic wedges from Steve Madden, and a coral colored statement necklace from Francesca’s! I loved this outfit because it was simple colors with a pop of color to stand out! Let us know what you think!

Going Out!

What do you do when you aren’t in the mood to full on blow-dry-and-style your hair? 1 HAT + 1 LOW SIDE BUN = INSTANT HAIR STYLE! Boom! Easy.

It’s no secret that I love a great wedge hi top sneaker! Buyers beware: there are many weird looking ones out there! Be very choosy. These Aldo’s are my fave signature wedge kicks; sleek, classy and fabulous. Also, IN LOVE with this wide-brimmed hat!

OUTFIT: HAT, Shop Primadonna // JACKET, Forever 21 // PANTS, Bebe // SHOES, Aldo.

Fun Fact: Every piece of this outfit has appeared several times on the blog before, in other outfits (besides the hat)!!! A great wardrobe is about mixing and matching key pieces. No need to break the bank!

A Black Tie Affair

20131218-200541.jpg
I have been VERY EXCITED to share this GORGEOUS Jovani couture gown with you!!! Added bonus: It’s my hubby’s debut on the blog! Well, his photo that is. We had an amazing time with my family, for a black tie evening. I love this floor-length sparkler, styled with a formal updo, and diamond jewels. {I did my own hair and make up.} This is yet another ensemble from our glamorous, fun Thanksgiving vacation! I love David’s modern take on black tie formal, going with a dark grey, charcoal and black combo. I love him so much!!!

Always remember, fashionistas, your BEST accessory is a true and genuine smile!!!

We celebrated Thanksgiving on our vacation, and it was FABULOUS!!! For the special holiday I wore the Haute Hippie Theodora dress in Ombré, from Kyle by Alene Too in Beverly Hills. (My husband got me this dress as a gift!!!!!) <strongACCESSORIES: Nyla earrings in Amethyst, by Kendra Scott // Faux Snakeskin clutch from Arden B.

I really enjoyed wearing this all night! I just adore this dress!!! So much sparkle; so much fun!

For the Thanksgiving holiday weekend the Fashion.Beauty.Sisters took a getaway trip down the coast, all the way to Ensenada. You’ll get all the fashionable details over the next few weeks.

Earth Tones & Fab Accessories

Bringing you earth-tone realness today. I LOVE my new wrap bracelet by Mrs. Hipp Designs, and these ALDO hi-top sneakers in beige!!!!! Sweater by Zara, olive green pants by Old Navy, and glasses by Jessica Simpson.

20131127-081257.jpg
I mixed the wrap bracelet with a gold cross bracelet from Francesca’s. I am OBSESSED with this leather wrap, beaded bracelet!! I’ve always wanted one, but the high quality ones like this literally retail for hundreds of dollars. This designer makes them for $40-$100 per design, custom! Annnnnnnnd, you’re welcome for finding her! Follow her on Instagram to order @mrshippdesigns. I love mine so much. Real leather and real silk make for a super strong wrap.

Enjoy!!!

Casual Dinner Party!!

The hubby and I went to a FABULOUS, fun, laughter-filled, DELICIOUS dinner at a great friend’s home. We enjoyed incredible food, and even better company. I wore this outfit, and included a shot of the pants so you could see the cool texture. They are Bebe Jeather Skinny Icon pants (jean + leather = jeather).

20131119-223023.jpgABOVE: PANTS: Bebe // TOP: VS PINK // NECKLACE: Forever 21 // ARM PARTY: Guess, Kendra Scott, Stella & Dot // HEELS: Jessica Simpson (SUPER COMFORTABLE HEELS!!!!!).

If you go with skin-tight pants, be sure to wear a looser top to avoid looking like “The Wondrous Spandex Lady!” And pump it up with great accessories. Happy outfitting!

Concert Outfit: Boyce Avenue

I got to see Boyce Avenue perform their last show of this tour- it was amazing. For my concert-going outfit I was committed to not buying ANYTHING – my entire ensemble was already in my closet. Great feeling to remix your wardrobe and get more out of it!!! 20131103-221919.jpg
ABOVE: SHIRT: VS PINK // FLANNEL & DESTROYED JEANS: Abercrombie & Fitch // SHOES: Converse All Stars in white // NECKLACE: Nashelle // WATCH: Guess // BRACELET: Stella & Dot.

If you haven’t heard their music already, check out Boyce Ave. on YouTube HERE. Keep your acoustic concert outfits casual, comfortable and of course cute!

20131103-224158.jpg

Quilted Leather & Camo!!!

A quilted leather jacket is a MUST for the season, and camo pants (very on trend right now) have always been a favorite of mine. I love the quilted arm, structured shoulder, and cloth/zipper torso details on this jacket… Paired with moto boots that I found at TJ Maxx.

20131023-090720.jpg
These earrings, normally SUPER pricey, I found for only $10.00 on eBay!!!! They are authentic Tasha brand (sold usually at Nordstrom). Can’t beat this quality at this price!

20131023-090912.jpgYou don’t need to break the bank to have fun style. Buy basics from bargain stores and put them all together in a way that you love!

Lancôme Mascara & Gift!

I love when Lancôme does a gift with purchase! I went to get a new tube of one of my fave mascaras (hynôse star), and to my pleasant surprise…. gifts with purchase!! Several things not pictured, one if which was a huge, fab charcoal makeup bag! I love this eye shadow set. A smokey purple is one of my top two eye shadow looks…so this is quite the treat! And who doesn’t love the world’s best (in my opinion) eye make up remover? Score!

The LBD!

“One is never overdressed or underdressed with a Little Black Dress.” -Karl Lagerfeld

As promised on our Instagram @fashionbeautysisters, the details on this outfit! Read below for my commentary on these fab heels!!!

20130929-191548.jpg

20130929-191611.jpgI love these shoes!!! Not only for the style, but they are surprisingly the single-most comfortable pair of heels in my entire closet! NOT KIDDING. Didn’t even need to break them in. They don’t have a platform, which typically makes a heel less comfortable, but these are pure perfection! I definitely recommend the Guess “Lala” shoe!

Dress up your LBD any way you please, because this classic style is sure to be a hit!!
